The ultimate struggle to rule the world begins with the arrival of the epic fantasy-adventure film  Gods of Egypt…at least, that’s the studio is hoping for.

GodsEgypt1_optGerard Butler (London Has Fallen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (The Other Woman) star as rival gods Set and Horus, who are locked in a war to rule the universe. To defeat the merciless Set, Horus joins forces with a brave mortal for a journey that will take them across Egypt, through the heavens, and into the afterlife in an unforgettable quest to save mankind.

Directed by Alex Proyas (The Crow), written by Matt Sazama (The Last Witch Hunter) & Burk Sharpless (The Last Witch Hunter), and featuring high-end visual effects and production design, the movie also stars Bryan Brown (Breaker Morant), Emma Booth (Swerve) and Chadwick Boseman (42).

The PG-rated movie only did moderate business at the box office during its wide release to theaters in February, 2016, grossing $31 million. The gods weren’t all that happy about those numbers…

The Blu-ray and Digital HD releases feature an in-depth look behind-the-scenes with six featurettes, plus storyboards of deleted scenes.
