Watch: Gerard Butler in ‘Gods of Egypt’ First Trailer

Liosngate has released the spectacle-laden first trailer for “Gods of Egypt,” starring Gerard Butler, Chadwick Boseman and Brenton Thwaites, three months before its Feb. 26 opening.

Alex Proyas directed the story of an unexpected mortal hero — played by Thwaites — who enlists the powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against Butler’s power-crazed Set, the God of Darkness, who has plunged ancient Egypt into chaos.

Boseman plays the deity Thoth. Filming took place last year in Australia.

Lionsgate’s CEO Jon Feltheimer has asserted that “Gods of Egypt” carries a budget of $140 million with the studio’s exposure at only $10 million due to Lionsgate’s output deals and Australian incentives.
