"Gods of Egypt" released a first trailer starring Gerard Butler on Tuesday.
The 46-year-old Scottish actor plays Set, the Egyptian god of chaos, with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus, the god of the sky. Brenton Thwaites also stars as the mortal Bek, with Elodie Yung as Hathor, the goddess of the sky.
The preview sees Bek help Horus reclaim his kingdom after Set blinds the sky god and steals his throne. The plot strays from Egyptian mythology, which sees Horus avenge his father, the sky god Osiris, after Set kills his dad.
"Gods of Egypt" is directed by "The Crow" and "I, Robot" director Alex Proyas, and opens in theaters on Feb. 26. Chadwick Boseman co-stars as Thoth, the god of knowledge, with Courtney Eaton as the character Zaya.
Butler is known for "300", and is also stars in "London Has Fallen" with Morgan Freeman. Coster-Waldau plays Jamie Lannister on the HBO series "Game of Thrones", while Thwaites is known for "Maleficent" and "The Giver".
