'GODS OF EGYPT' REVEALS
STUNNING FIRST POSTERS!
Now, check out this eyecandy! After an extremely long wait the first glitzy, sparkly and delicious poster have been released for next February's Ancient Egyptian epic adventure GODS OF EGYPT and they let you see Scottish Hunk Gerard Butler in a skirt! It is strange they haven't yet released any trailer, only four months before the premiere, but I have a feeling we shall see the first one next week when Lionsgate's HUNGER GAMES hits the theatres in its final instalment. Until then feast your eyes on these colourful treats promising a vivid, lavish and breathtaking epic movie!
GODS, MAGIC AND MADNESS 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 rebels opposing Set’s savage rule, Bek (Brenton Thwaites), a bold and defiant mortal, enlists the aid of powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against the evil overlord. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen take 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 spectacular final confrontation.
THE STAR STUDDED CAST
Beside Gerard Butler as Set, God of the Desert, Nikolaj Coster Waldau is Horus, God of the Sky, Brenton Thwaites is Bek, Thief of Legend, Chadwick Boseman is Thoth, God of Wisdom and Elodie Yung is Hathor, Goddess of Love.

Horus? No he's the KingslayerReplyDelete
I'm surprised you didn't say he's Harry Plopper, Adam :)Delete
who is what is?Delete
How should I know?Delete
and why would I know?Delete
Ya'll crack me up ;PDelete
I still don't know who is what is!Delete
Theresa does. How come you don't?Delete
How come Theresa does what I don't?Delete
I will give you the honourDelete
Theresa... The Dezzzmeister is clueless. Could you spell it out for him?Delete
she ain't gonna read it... you're too lateDelete
Tell me something I don't know.Delete
Those are really beautiful posters! The Goddess of Love is my favorite though!ReplyDelete
She sure is flapping those wings of hers... in other news, I wouldn't wanna be seen alive in that cape of Horus' :)Delete
It's not that bad. I do like the color of it ;)Delete
yes, for a shower curtain or table cloth not to parade around in it :)Delete
A scary shower curtain. Yikes.Delete
But the colors are great.Delete
Gerard Butler is indeed a handsome man.ReplyDelete
and a ladies' man too :) When he was here a few years ago shooting a movie, he got a taste of some of our starlets :)Delete
Looks great and very impressive, love the colors on the posters, beautiful...ReplyDelete
I imagine the movie itself will be visual splendour!Delete
Amazing posters. I haven't seen Gerard in a good movie since 300. This is definitely exciting!ReplyDelete
glad you like them, idiots around the web are trashing them in their evil campaign against the movie... you know, the superficial pubescent types which get turned on only by darkness, gore and grim things.Delete
Cool posters! I haven't been to the movies in so long, when I do go the posters feel fake. You know how in movies/TV shows they'll have fake movies on the walls when scenes are set in a movie theater? That's what they feel like, they're so foreign to me!ReplyDelete
you mean they don't deliver what is on the posters? I reckon this one might be as glitzy as the posters are... I imagine the gods popping in clouds of glitter and sparks in each scene :) Should be magical.Delete
I looooove Egyptian mythology. I'm probably out of sync here, but I can't remember having seen any productions that featured Egyptian gods so prominently. I hope they get it right... that they don't go for plot at the cost of accuracy... though I suppose that might be too much to ask for ;) Still, whatshisname from 300 is an *excellent* choice for Seth (sorry, old-school spelling for Set).ReplyDelete
Happy weekend, Dez!

Funny they changed it into Set since Thoth is still Thoth :) We do adore anything ancient Egyptian even though this summer's TUT mini series at Spike TV left us disappointed.Delete
Oh no... I haven't seen the TUT series, but it's one I would've wanted to—and now, well, not so much. How can they get it so wrong? Especially with something there's so much info on??? Me no understand :(Delete
it was with Ben Kingsley, you have it in our right sidebar with epic shows. The lead actor was horrible, like Keanu Reeves among pyramids :)Delete
That sounds indeed worth skipping :DDelete
you can check it out only for visual aspect... but even that isn't overly stunning.Delete
