‘Gods Of Egypt’ Getting 60-Second Spot In Super Bowl Pre-Game Show

5 February 2016 7:34 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Lionsgate said today that Gods Of Egypt has snagged a 60-second spot to air during Sunday’s Super Bowl pregame show. That makes sense for the Summit pic, which stars Brenton Thwaites, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gerard Butler, Rufus Sewell and Geoffrey Rush — it opens February 26. The Alex Proyas-helmed swords-and-sandals actioner centers on a mortal (Thwaites) on a mission to save the world, enlisting the god Horus (Coster-Waldau) in an alliance against god of darkness Set… »

Posterized February 2016: ‘The Witch,’ ‘Hail, Caesar!,’ ‘Triple 9,’ and More

4 February 2016 9:56 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.

What’s up with so few movies opening in theaters this February? I’m not complaining since it means a lot less posters to go through as well as perhaps a sign that less crap is being made. Remember when there was an event type atmosphere surrounding every new release because so much money and creativity went into it? Oh the days when there was more good cinema popping up on the marquee than clunkers.

This month sadly doesn’t look to go back to that trend. Along »

Take a look @ more new footage from director Alex Proyas' 3D demons and monsters feature "Gods Of Egypt", opening February 26, 2015:

New Gods Of Egypt Trailer

3 February 2016 7:36 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

If you thought Alex Proyas’ (The Crow, The Knowing) Gods of Egypt looked insane from the first trailer, Empire has a new look at the CGI heavy fantasy adventure, full of shiny gods, gigantic rock monsters, and massive snakes used as transportation. I know it looks ridiculous, but if this movie knows to not take itself too seriously, we’re in for a goofy, fun time. Released: February 26thSynopsis: Magic, monsters, gods and madness reign throughout the palaces and pyramids of the Nile River Valley in this action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt.  With the survival of mankind hanging in the balance, an unexpected hero takes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love.  Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict.  With only a handful of heroic »

New Trailer For Gods Of Egypt Fails To Improve On First Impressions

3 February 2016 4:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hollywood is nothing if not consistent – so goes the positive spin that can be placed upon the release of the third trailer for the upcoming Gods Of Egypt. Mythological action-adventure rarely works out well on the big screen – least of all those attempts that are blatantly white-washed – and yet, the studios continue to churn them out. In fact, this trend is so inexplicably persistent, that we could almost be forgiven for thinking that the mainstream filmmaking industry perhaps knows something we don’t – that eventually, we’ll acquiesce and develop an appreciation for these movies, if we would only give it another try.

And so, in spite of Clash Of The Titans, Prince Of Persia, Exodus: Gods And Kings – and all those poorly realised mythology-based movies that went before them – we have Gods Of Egypt. The film is directed by Alex Proyas (Knowing), and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless »

New Gods of Egypt international trailer should have stayed overseas

2 February 2016 1:30 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Something strange is afoot with Gods Of Egypt.  While we'll always look fondly upon director Alex Proyas for giving us The Crow and Dark City, there is something that feels so very off about his latest picture Gods Of Egypt, and it's all over the new international trailer for the film.  Once upon a time, a film like Gods Of Egypt knew exactly what it was, and it...

12 Films To See In February

1 February 2016 8:31 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Much like August, February has in some recent years been far better than it's dumping ground reputation would lead some to believe. With January being the time of year for loads of Oscar qualifying pictures to go wide, this second month is when the movie new year begins in earnest. And this year it's perhaps as promising as any, with a new release from Joel and Ethan Coen, a much-anticipated sequel to a comedy from the early 2000s, the latest indie horror sensation that premiered at last year's Sundance, a new Michael Moore doc and several exciting new releases from established arthouse auteurs. Now that we're closer than ever to officially wrapping up last year's cinematic output (the Academy Awards broadcast is on February 28th), let's properly welcome in the new movie year by taking a look closer at this new month.    One film you won't see mentioned anywhere else »

Gods Of Egypt International Poster Gathers The Gods Together

13 January 2016 2:45 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A new international one-sheet for The Crow director Alex Proyas’ mythological adventure, Gods Of Egypt, has been released. While the initial character banners introduced us to the cast individually, this poster brings them all together with the film’s principals, Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Set (Gerard Butler), taking center stage.

We also have the likes of Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) as Bek, Courtney Eaton (Mad Max: Fury Road) as Zaya, Thoth (Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman) and the token wise old sage type character played by Geoffrey Rush dotted about the place.

Nothing we’ve seen from this movie so far has been very well received (that’s probably putting it kindly), and the whitewashing issue hasn’t helped sell it to the masses either – but Proyas is a talented director, so hopefully the adventures of this colorful bunch of deities will surprise us all.

Gods Of Egypt is set for a February 26, 2016 release. »
