Gerard Butler plays the villainous god of Set while Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays Horus on a quest to defeat him.

The trailer for the upcoming film ‘Gods of Egypt’ is here. The trailer shows the battle between the Egyptian gods Set and Horus. The character of Set is played by Gerard Butler. While "Game of Thrones" star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays the character of Horus.

The trailer shows Horus trying to fight Set after the god of the desert, storms, and foreigners kills his father. Set killed Horus’s father Osiris. Set defeats Horus and steals his eyes after plucking them out.

The trailer then shows a human thief played by Brenton Thwaites stealing the eye. The thief takes the eye to Horus so he can defeat Set. 

After gaining one of his eyes back Horus and the thief are on a quest to vanquish Set. Meanwhile Set in his arrogance has enslaved all of Egypt and may lead to its destruction. The trailer shows the character of Butler may well be a mad god. 

Since its release the film has already come under heavy criticism. The film is being called a white washed version of Egyptian mythology. Gods of Egypt has been called out for its lack of colored actors.

Especially in ancient Egypt the dwellers were known to be of colored race. Only one colored actor has been cast in the film. Chadwick Boseman plays god Thoth but other than him most of the main characters are white. The film will be released on the 26th of February 2016.
