Gods of Egypt is an upcoming movie due to release in February 2016. It will star Gerard Butler, Brenton Thwaites and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Alex Proyas, the guy behind The Crow, is directing Gods of Egypt and is set to mesmerize its audience. The movie will open on the 26th February in the U.S. while in the U.K. God of Egypt will premiere on the 8th April 2016.
As with almost every movie involving Gods etc. mankind pretty much hangs by a thread. An unexpected mortal hero Bek takes on a journey to save the world. But for him to succeed, he must get help from a powerful God, Horus. Together, they will go against Set, played by Gerard Butler, a merciless God of darkness. He usurps Egypt’s throne plunging the entire nation into darkness. The battle is breathtaking, both God and mortal must pass tests of sacrifice and courage in order to prevail.
Apart from Set, the God of Desert, the movie will also feature Zaya – Beauty of the Nile, Thoth – God of Wisdom, and Hathor – Goddess of Love. The battle of mortals and Gods will take you through a journey of heaven and hell. It is really quite unfortunate that Gods of Egypt will release almost two months later in the UK than in the US. From the looks of the posters and trailers, it is almost impossible to wait for the movie. Take a look at the epic posters from Gods of Egypt below and decide if you would want to watch the movie or not. If you still can’t decide, watch the trailer. The movie, directed by one of the best, should turn out pretty amazing especially given the fact that Gerard Butler is playing the villain.
