Nikolaj Coster-Waldau filled some of his downtime from Game of Thrones filming Gods of Egypt, an upcoming action movie in which he’ll be going up against 300 star Gerard Butler. The new trailer’s arrived and it’s better than trailer #1, but still stresses the CGI and action over anything to do with character development. Directed by Alex Proyas (I, Robot), the cast also includes Brenton Thwaites, Courtney Eaton, Elodie Yung and Chadwick Boseman.
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.
