Alex Proyas is a director firmly on the list of those who don't always get the credit he deserved. He'll always have a particular place in our heart for the marvellous Dark City and the original The Crow. Yet even in a film such as Knowing, which doesn't match the standards of those two, there's a spectacular stand out sequence in the midst of it all.
Knowing was Proyas' last film, back in 2009. His new project, Gods Of Egypt, finally arrives next year. It stars Gerard Butler, Brenton Thwaites and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. And we've got posters, a synopsis and a trailer for the movie.
The posters you can see by clicking on the gallery at the top. It'd be fair to say that the assorted character posters released thus far have not gone down a storm. »
Before you watch the trailer for Gods of Egypt, you'll need to ask yourself a few questions: Am I ready to see Gerard Butler gouge Jaime Lannister's (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) eyes out - then seconds later, can I accept that only one eye is gone? Do I need to see Gerard Butler in strappy sandals once again? Do I really want to see a movie that's 99 percent CGI? If you're cool with all of the above, check out the trailer for Gods of Egypt, opening on Feb. 26. »

Gerard Butler digs into his roots for Alex Proyas‘ “Gods of Egypt,” and the first trailer for the fantasy epic has the “300” star preparing for battle against “Game of Thrones'” Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Set in ancient Egypt against the legendary world of great pyramids and sphinxes, “Gods of Egypt” is the story of a common thief and a god on a magical quest. As TheWrap first reported, Coster-Waldau stars as Horus, the god of the sky, who must avenge the death of his father, Osiris.

If you like anything — no really, anything — you can probably find it in this trailer for Gods of Egypt, the new action-adventure movie inspired by classic myths. (It seems pretty accurate, so throw out all your mythology Cliff's Notes, teens of today!) Egyptian god of darkness Gerard Butler (talk about typecasting) steals another god's magical eyeball (the god is played by Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau; the eyeball is played by a bunch of graphics made by a lot of people), setting off an epic tale. The film also stars: mortals, demons, gods, dragons, more magic eyeballs, sandals, robot snakes, exploding pyramids, fury, war, eternity, kings, storms, reckoning, madmen — did we mention sandals? Oh, we did, the list of mythical things was so long we forgot. »

Alex Proyas directed the story of an unexpected mortal hero — played by Thwaites — who enlists the powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against Butler’s power-crazed Set, the God of Darkness, who has plunged ancient Egypt into chaos.
Boseman plays the diety Thoth. Filming took place last year in Australia.
Lionsgate’s CEO Jon Feltheimer has asserted that “Gods of Egypt” carries a budget of $140 million with the studio’s exposure at only $10 million due to Lionsgate’s output deals and Australian incentives.

The survival of mankind hangs in the balance and ancient gods of an impossibly ancient culture battle for control of the universe. That’s the premise of the swords-and-sandals-and-sorcery epic Gods of Egypt, from director Alex Proyas. The film follows a mortal named Bek (Brenton Thwaites), who finds himself forced to align with Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) when the god Set (Gerard Butler) assumes control of Egypt. Their battle spans Earth, the heavens and the Afterlife… »
Proyas previously helmed I, Robot and The Crow.
His latest film, 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. »

Just a few days after the posters for Gods of Egypt were released, and caused an epidemic of sensory overload, we now have a trailer. Take a look.
Oh boy. This trailer. It's got us scratching our heads. Sure, the sole purpose for this trailer is build up excitement for all the action that's going to be on tap in Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt. That much is understood. Outside of that, if this trailer is any indication of the movie, Gods of Egypt just looks like CGI mess of a movie.
The only story I could discern was that Set (Gerard Butler) takes the throne from Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and then enslaves all of Egypt. Why? We've watched it three times and we haven't figured that part out. Then, Bek (Brenton Thwaites) gets pushed into stealing Horus' eye and together they go on a quest to save the world. »

Well, it’s here. The trailer for “Gods of Egypt” dropped today and whoo boy, it is a hot mess. I can overlook a lot of the sillier aspects: “Stargate” did the magical animal-headed armor first so fine, the gods being huge compared to the mortals is whatever. I can even overlook the insane visuals of an Egyptian landscape that never existed since the pyramids were built in the desert sands on the West side of the Nile (and later in the Valley of the Kings) and not smack dab in the middle of town and they certainly didn’t have pedestrian superhighways…but hey, the “Rule of Cool” reigns supreme. Image Credit: LionsGate What I can’t get behind? How insultingly white the cast is. We have the gods Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Set (Gerard Butler) along with Ra (Geoffrey Rush). Thoth (Chadwick Boseman) and Hathor (the half-Cambodian Elodie Yung »

Gods Of Egypt Movie Trailer. Alex Proyas‘ Gods of Egypt (2016) movie trailer stars Gerard Butler, Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, and Brenton Thwaites. Gods of Egypt‘s plot synopsis: “A common thief joins a mythical god on a quest through Egypt.” Well. This certainly looks imperfect. Alex Proyas is a major talent, but his track record isn’t the best. He often fumbles, and […] »

This one looks like it might be fun, and it’s definitely not taking itself particularly seriously with its colourful array of costumes and larger than life (literally) characters – but while watching the footage, one cant help but be reminded of a certain Clash of the Titans remake from a few years back, and that didn’t turn out very well at all.
Still, there’s an impressive cast to look forward to: Game Of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays the noble God of Horus, who has his eyes torn out and is banished by the evil Set (Gerard Butler). With Set planning to plunge the mortal world into endless darkness (or something), Bek (Brenton Thwaites) undertakes a mission to stop him, »

The obvious problems with this aside... based on the just-released trailer, the movie looks awful. By the way, Chadwick Boseman actually has a role in this playing play Thoth, who was, among other things, a god of the moon and the inventor of writing. He was most often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis (a type of bird with a long, down-curved bill), or a baboon. He's barely in the trailer, I should note. Blink and you'll surely miss him. So it's hard to say how involved his character is in the overall narrative. Alex Proyas’ "Gods Of Egypt," the Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment action-adventure pic, stars Gerard Butler, Nikolaj »

All of creation is at stake. All of heaven is at war. Whoa! Summit has debuted the first epic trailer for Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt, an action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt. The ensemble cast of Gods includes Gerard Butler as Set, God of the Desert; Brenton Thwaites as Bek, Thief of Legend; Chadwick Boseman as Thoth, God of Wisdom; Elodie Yung as Hathor, Goddess of Love; and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus, God of the Sky. This looks crazy, and I'm not sure I mean that in a good way. It sort of reminds me of some kind of weird mash-up between Jupiter Ascending and Exodus: Gods & Kings. There are so many epic shots, so many fantastical elements. I will say - they got me with those giant snakes. Here's the first official trailer for Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt, in high def from Apple: »

Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, has taken over the throne of Egypt and plunged the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. Few dare to rebel against him. A young thief, whose love was taken captive by the god, seeks to dethrone and defeat Set with the aid of the powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and a shit load of ridiculous CGI. Witness the trailer for Gods Of... Read More »
