First, here’s the synopsis:
The survival of mankind hangs in the balance as an unexpected mortal hero Bek (Brenton Thwaites) undertakes a thrilling journey to save the world.
In order to succeed, he must enlist the help of the powerful and vengeful 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 »

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. »
Coming from Alex Proyas (The Crow, I, Robot, Knowing), Gods of Egypt puts the sword and sandal epic through the visionary director’s unique lens, seeing Proyas at his his most colourful and over the top as Egyptian mythology gets the type of glitzy action movie treatment not seen since the days of The Mummy and its sequels. With gods like Set and Horus re-imagined as armoured warriors and Brenton Thwaites playing the most acrobatic street urchin this side of Aladdin, the first trailer does offer something absolutely ridiculous that should leave a huge smile on your face. If Proyas can at least remember not to take himself and his movie too seriously (it has giant, sand surfing snakes, how can he?), Gods of Eygpt could at least be a fun, goofy slice of escapisim. Released: February 26th Synopsis: Magic, monsters, gods and madness reign throughout the palaces and pyramids »

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, »

It wouldn’t be the early months of the year without some sort of green screen-heavy, cheap-looking, mythology-based action-adventure tentpole. Following in the footsteps of Pompeii, Clash of the Titans, Seventh Son, and many more, 2016 will bring Gods of Egypt. Despite some truly awful initial posters (seen below), this one does come from director Alex Proyas, who has shown talent in the past with Dark City and The Crow.
The first trailer has now landed, which looks to pack a bit more inventiveness than your average early-year blockbuster, but still doesn’t have us looking forward to it all that much. Starring Gerard Butler, Chadwick Boseman, Brenton Thwaites, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Geoffrey Rush, Rufus Sewell, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton, and Elodie Yung, check out the trailer below.

Back when the cast was announced for The Crow director Alex Proyas’ mythological fantasy adventure, Gods Of Egypt, there was quite a bit of backlash stemming from his decision to fill the roles of Egyptian deities predominately with white actors – and it’s all kicked off again with the release of these character posters.
Whatever your feelings may be on that matter there’s no denying Proyas has put a pretty good cast together. We have Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) as Thoth, Elodie Yung (Dardevil season 2) as Hathor, Gerard Butler (300) as Set, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game Of Thrones) as Horus, Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) as Bek, and Courtney Eaton (Mad Max: Fury Road) as Zaya. The character designs are certainly… unusual. I don’t think any of us expected such an array of colourful/camp costumes for this, but perhaps it’ll work in the movie’s favour. »

Did you know Alex Proyas has a new film coming out this year? I think I did, but I forgot, and now I wish I could go back to forgetting because these posters for the fantasy film titled Gods of Egypt are very disheartening.
The director of some of my favorite films including Dark City, The Crow and Knowing (yes, I liked Knowing a ton) is either being punked by the Lionsgate marketing department, or the movie will be a multi-coloured disaster.
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.

The Gods of Egypt posters are out and we have them...viewer discretion is strongly advised...so are sunglasses...
Still curious? Ok well here they are! The character posters for Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt! Yes, the same director who made I, Robot and The Crow seems to have found the color shader function in Photoshop and pushed it to the max. Enjoy.
If you've made it this far, you can no longer unsee what you have just witnessed. This isn't a knock on the movie, by any means. It could still be a good film. It's just unfortunate that these posters make it easier to stare at the sun than at these characters. Perhaps the synopsis will do a better »

Director Corin Hardy is in a pretty good place right now. His Irish monster movie, The Hallow, is hitting cinemas across the UK this week, and it’s also just been announced that his reboot of The Crow, which looked like it might be cancelled after the studio filed for bankruptcy a couple of months ago, is back on track again. No better time, then, to sit down for a long chat about films and fairytales…
I saw The Hallow a few months ago and loved it – it’s really scary, and it’s got brilliant monsters. Tell me a bit about how you came up with the mythology?
Well, my mission was to try and create a new or a fresh spin on a monster for a horror movie. »
After several years of languishing in development and production delays, The Crow reboot is finally getting ready to spread its wings. The Wrap reports that director Corin Hardy has signed a new holding deal with Relativity Media, with The Crow set to become the company's first project after it emerges from its bankruptcy proceedings. Principal photography is now scheduled to begin in March 2016.
Shortly after Relativity filed for bankruptcy in July, the production company claimed that they were still moving ahead with a fall production start on The Crow, but that never happened. Just a few weeks earlier, star Jack Huston became the latest in a long line of stars to back out of the Eric Draven role, following Luke Evans, James McAvoy and Bradley Cooper. The studio still hasn't found a replacement for Jack Huston yet, with Jessica Brown Findlay currently the only cast member attached as Shelly Webster, »
A new version of The Crow under the direction of Corin Hardy is back on the production schedule of Relativity Media, according to The Wrap. The film had been placed on hold a few months ago, due to the studio's financial and legal troubles, but now it looks to be the first project on the docket as the studio emerges from its bankruptcy, with the start of production marked for March 2016. Hardy has been attached to direct since December 2014, shortly before his horror movie The Hallow debuted to critical acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival. The 1994 original, based on James O'Barr's comic book series, starred Brandon Lee as a musician who comes back from the dead to avenge his own murder and that of his fiancee. Tragically, Lee died due to an accidental shooting...

It seems the folks at Relativity Media aren’t going to let a little thing like bankruptcy stop them getting their remake of The Crow off the ground. This project was plagued by mishaps right from the beginning, and the final nail in the coffin seemed to come this past August when the studio filed for bankruptcy. But, according to The Wrap, Relativity has now signed director Corin Hardy to a holding deal that will make The Crow the company’s top post-bankruptcy priority, with production slated to commence next March.
This remake of Alex Proyas’ well-regarded 1994 movie (itself a fairly loose adaptation of James O’Barr’s 1989 comic book) had both Luke Evans and Jack Huston in the role of Eric Draven at different points, but both dropped out and now the search is on to find a new leading man. The project also had the likes of Andrea Riseborough »

The Wrap is reporting that director Corin Hardy is in negotiations to helm “The Crow” remake for Relativity Media after the production studio filed for bankruptcy in March. Hardy gained critical acclaim after helming the creature film, “The Hallow”, which debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
There is currently no lead actor in the role of Eric Draven, a rock star who is brutally murdered alongside his beloved girlfriend by a group of gang members. With the help of a mystical crow, Draven is resurrected from the grave to exact vengeance on the ones that killed him and the love of his life.
Sources say Relativity is investing around $7 million in the remake, which includes $2.5 million to maintain the rights to future prequels, sequels, and remake rights. Producer Edward S. Pressman has filed an injunction against Relativity Media if principal photography does not begin in the next three years. »

It looks like the long-gestating and troubled remake of "The Crow" lives once again.
The company is still in the midst of ongoing efforts to reorganize in the wake of declaring bankruptcy and 'Crow' has become its top production priority.
No star is currently attached to play Eric Draven, who returns from the dead to track down his killers with the help of a mystical crow.

Just when you thought The Crow reboot was done, it comes crawling back from the abyss. The troubled production has endured a number of high profile hiccups - the latest of which came with Relativity Media's bankruptcy in August. However, according to The Wrap, the studio have signed director Corin Hardy to a holding deal that will make The Crow the company's top post-bankruptcy priority. Their sources claim that production on the reboot is now slated to start in March. The film still needs to find an actor to take on the iconic role of 'Eric Draven' (made famous by Brandon Lee's haunting portrayal back in 1994). Both Luke Evans and Jack Huston were previously attached, but had to drop out. Hardy's continued involvement is encouraging though. The director's debut feature The Hallow picked up good reviews at Sundance - and he recently teased a "fresh and inspired" new »
If you've been following the saga of The Crow remake/reboot/whatever it's being called, then forgive us for doing a quick recap. Over the years, the plan to tackle a new screen version of the graphic novel by James O'Barr has not quite gone as all concerned would have hoped.
Just in the last year alone, Luke Evans and Jack Huston have left the project, having both being cast at different times in the lead role. Previously, the likes of Tom Hiddleston, James McAvoy, Bradley Cooper and Mark Wahlberg had all been linked.
Behind the camera, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and F Javier Gutierrez had been expected to direct the film at different stages, but now Corin Hardy has signed up, and was all set to start shooting this year. »
People once believed that when a film dies before production, it would pass into the ether, never to return. This isn't the case for the long embattled remake of The Crow, which has hitched the first bird into production for next March. After the sale of Relativity was concluded last month, it sounds like one of the first orders of business was to secure director Corin Hardy with a contract that limits him to work exclusively on the prolonged remake. With the rights almost reverting back to the hands of Edward R. Pressman, a producer of the original 1994 film, the newly revamped production house has taken steps to secure a March 2016 production start. This tactic prevents the rights from leaving, but that's as long as the cameras actually role when they say they will. With three directors leaving the project before Hardy signed on, and several actors coming and going »
“The Crow” director Corin Hardy has signed a holding deal with Relativity, which will make the comic book movie its first post-bankruptcy production in March, an individual with knowledge of the situation has told TheWrap. There’s no star currently attached to play Eric Draven, who returns from the dead to track down his killers with the help of a mystical crow, but locking in Hardy is a good sign for the project and its progress to the big screen. The director’s involvement had been up in the air as recently as late September when “The Crow” producer Edward R. Pressman filed. »
