Alex Proyas’ The Gods of Egypt proved to be some silly monster-sized, CG-laden fun in theaters; and if you’re interested in seeing it at home, the film is getting set to make its Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD premiere in May.
From the Press Release:
The ultimate struggle to rule the world begins when Gods of Egypt arrives on Digital HD on May 17 and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital HD), 3D Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD), Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital), and On Demand May 31 from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE Company.
Directed by Alex Proyas (I, Robot), written by Matt Sazama (The Last Witch Hunter) & Burk Sharpless (The Last Witch Hunter), and featuring stunning visual effects and production design, Gods of Egypt stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (TV’s “Game of Thrones”) with Gerard Butler (London Has Fallen) and Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush (Best Actor, Shine, 1996).
The ultimate battle between good and evil threatens to destroy all creation in this epic fantasy-adventure bursting with spectacular action and amazing special effects. Gerard Butler and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau 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.
The Blu-ray and Digital HD releases feature an in-depth look behind the scenes with six featurettes plus storyboards of deleted scenes.
