Summit Entertainment and Director Alex Proyas have just dropped the first official trailer to Gods Of Egypt

Wow, well that looks god awful (pun intended), Alex Proyas should have given us this dark melodic adventure like his previous efforts The Crow and Dark City, instead we a given a sequel to Clash of the Titans. Honestly I don’t know what else to think, everything we have seen for this flick just looks like a bargain bin snooze fest. I just feel bad for Aussie newcomer Brenton Thwaites, he can’t seem to catch a break. His IMDB list continues to get worse and worse.

Also can we just bring up the lack of  ethnicity in this movie, I didn’t realise there was so many English folk in Egypt.

Here’s the official synopsis

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.

GODS OF EGYPT opens in Australia in February
