Trivia

In the film, souls pass to the afterlife by having their richness weighed in a scale against a feather by God Anubis. In Egyptian mythology, the souls placed their hearts (as a symbol of the flaws and virtues), which is, by the why, the reason why internal organs such as the heart were mummified. So, the movie apparently sets the version of mythology that is known today. See more »

Goofs

Three pyramids were seen in the first landscape shot. However Osiris was supposed to be the first mythological pharaoh of Egypt. Moreover, the first pharaoh to have a perfectly shaped triangle for a pyramid was Sneferus, whose reign was estimated to be from around 2613 BC to 2589 BC, or the Fourth Age of the Old Kingdom.

Quotes

Zaya: Set has taken over Egypt, and has enslaved its people. Only one god can save us, but not without his eyes.
Bek: Steal from a god? Only a madman would try such a thing.
Zaya: [smiles] Where do you think we could find someone so mad?

Excellent Movie Named Kings Of Egypt In Arabian Countries.
29 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gods of Egypt is a 2016 fantasy film featuring ancient Egyptian deities. The United States-Australia production is directed by Alex Proyas and stars Nikolaj Coaster-Waldau, Brenton Thwaites, Chadwick Boseman, Elodie Yung, Courtney Eaton, Rufus Sewell, with Gerard Butler and Geoffrey Rush. Butler plays the god of darkness Set who takes over the Egyptian empire, and Thwaites plays the mortal hero Bek who partners with the god Horus, played by Coaster-Waldau, to save the world and rescue his love.

Filming took place in Australia under the American studio Summit Entertainment. While the film's production budget was $140 million, the parent company Lionsgate's financial exposure was less than $10 million due to tax incentives and pre-sales. The Australian government provided a tax credit for 46% of the film's budget. When Lionsgate began promoting the film in November 2015, it received backlash for its predominantly white cast playing Egyptian characters. In response, Lionsgate and director Alex Proyas apologized for the lack of casting diversity.

Lionsgate released Gods of Egypt in theaters globally starting on February 25, 2016 in 2D, RealD 3D, and IMAX 3D. It released the film in the United States, Canada, and 68 other markets on February 26, 2016 and will release it in the United Kingdom on April 8, 2016.

The survival of mankind hangs in the balance when Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, usurps Egypt's throne and plunges the prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. Hoping to save the world and rescue his true love, a defiant mortal named Bek (Brenton Thwaites) forms an unlikely alliance with the powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coaster-Waldau). Their battle against Set and his henchmen takes them into the afterlife and across the heavens for an epic confrontation.
