Gerard Butler flexes muscles anew in mythological action film “Gods of Egypt”
When Egypt fell in chaos and evil threatened to rule, gods and men rise to the occasion to fight against and for each other in the upcoming spectacular action-adventure movie “Gods of Egypt.”
Inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt, the survival of mankind hangs in the balance as an unexpected mortal hero Bek (Brenton Thwaites) undertakes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. In order to succeed, he must enlist the help of the powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt's throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen takes them into the afterlife and across the heavens, both god and mortal must pass tests of courage and sacrifice if they hope to prevail in the epic final confrontation.
Directed by visionary director Alex Proyas who also helmed blockbuster thrilling movies “I, Robot” and “The Cros,” “Gods of Egypt” brings an impressive ensemble of actors who play powerful gods and mortals in “Gods of Egypt” that includes Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus, Gerard Butler as Set, Brenton Thwaites as Hathor, Courtney Eaton as Zaya, Chadwick Boseman as Thoth, Geoffrey Rush as RA, Bryan Brown as Osiris and Rufus Sewell as Urshu.
“Gods of Egypt” opens February 24 in cinemas nationwide from Pioneer Films.
