Gods of Egypt Trailer: It’s the ‘This Club Has Everything’ of Mythology Movies


If you like anything — no really, anything — you can probably find it in this trailer for Gods of Egypt, the new action-adventure movie inspired by classic myths. (It seems pretty accurate, so throw out all your mythology Cliff's Notes, teens of today!) Egyptian god of darkness Gerard Butler (talk about typecasting) steals another god's magical eyeball (the god is played by Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau; the eyeball is played by a bunch of graphics made by a lot of people), setting off an epic tale. The film also stars: mortals, demons, gods, dragons, more magic eyeballs, sandals, robot snakes, exploding pyramids, fury, war, eternity, kings, storms, reckoning, madmen — did we mention sandals? Oh, we did, the list of mythical things was so long we forgot.
