The survival of mankind hangs in the balance, as the classic mythology of Egypt is brought to life. Little before-seen concept art for the fantasy film, ‘Gods of Egypt,’ is showing that battle for endurance, as the drama is gearing up for its home release. The action movie is now available on Digital HD, and is also set to be released on Ultra 4K, 3D Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, May 31.
The adventure movie stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Brenton Thwaites, Chadwick Boseman, Elodie Yung, Courtney Eaton, Gerard Butler and Geoffrey Rush. ‘Gods of Egypt’ was directed by ‘The Crow’ and ‘I, Robot’ helmer, Alex Proyas, and was written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
‘Gods of Egypt’ follows an unexpected mortal hero, Bek (Thwaites), as he 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 (Coster-Waldau). The two form an unlikely alliance against Set (Butler), the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, and has plunged 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.
