Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Gerard Butler play rival gods in fantasy epic
Set in Ancient Egypt, Gods of Egypt centers on a thief (Brenton Thwaites ) teaming up with a group of gods on a fantastical mission. Our criminal hero is joined by Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), the God of the sky, and Hathor, the Goddess of love, to avenge the death of Horus' father, Osiris. The latter was killed by Set (Gerard Butler), the god of the desert.
The fantasy epic is directed by Alex Proyas (I Robot) whose talent for delivering visually spectacular genre pics can be witnessed in The Crow or Dark City.
