Before returning to Westeros as Jaime Lannister last month on Game of Thrones, actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau took on another epic story by starring in the action-packed Gods of Egypt. In case you missed it in theaters, Gods of Egypt is currently available on Digital HD formats, before debuting on Blu-ray and DVD May 31. To get fans ready for this release, we have an exclusive preview which showcases the elaborate costumes Nikolaj Coster Waldau had to wear as Horus.
After starring in Game of Thrones for the past six seasons, the actor is surely used to a number of elaborate wardrobe changes, but in Gods of Egypt, his Horus had two distinct costumes. The first is an entirely regal outfit, which he wears during a coronation. Nikolaj Coster Waldau revealed that the simple act of wearing this costume helped him get into character, while later on in the film, he has a more simple costume, as he embarks on an epic journey.
The ultimate struggle to rule the world begins when Gods of Egypt arrives 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 supporting cast includes Brenton Thwaites, Rufus Sewell, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton, Chadwick Boseman, Elodie Yung and Bryan Brown. The Blu-ray and Digital HD releases feature an in-depth look behind-the-scenes with six featurettes, plus storyboards of deleted scenes. The Blu-ray release also includes next-generation DTS:X immersive audio, which replicates and conveys the fluid movement of sound to create a richer soundscape by moving sound to precisely where the audio mixer placed it.
