In Gods of Egypt, Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Brenton Thwaities battle inside the world of Egyptian mythology. (See Coster-Waldau in exclusive character poster above!) Bek (Thwaities), a mere mortal among deities, finds himself in an epic clash to save mankind and his true love from the cruel god of darkness Set (Butler). To save the corporeal world, Bek must travel through the afterlife and across the heavens, gaining help from the powerful Horus (Coster-Waldau) along the way.
