MY REACTION: Gods of Egypt (2016)
Mythology/Fantasy Rating: Not yet rated
In this spectacular action-adventure 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. Directed by: Alex Proyas Cast: Brenton Thwaites, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gerard Butler, Abbey Lee, Rufus Sewell, Courtney Eaton, Chadwick Boseman, Elodie Yung, Bryan Brown, Geoffrey Rush
Check out these character posters!
Hmmm... Fascinating! The CGI looks good, and somewhat realistic. The action and adventure looks epic and bold. There is the incredible casting... But, the cast is blindingly white when the film is about "Gods of Egypt"!?! Shouldn't the cast portray, realistically, Egyptians?!? Anyways, the trailer was filled with colorful and exciting action scenes which would make for a lively story.
Sooo... The trailer definitely grabbed my attention. It already had me at mythology...haha! Plus, leave it to the entertainment industry to glamorize the film with some big names in Hollywood... Gerard Butler (300, Olympus Has Fallen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones, The Other Woman), both amazing actors! But, alas, I already know I'm going to watch it... just because of the mythology theme. I am such a sucker for mythology/fantasy/paranormal themes. We will have to see what other teaser trailers are released...?
