Lionsgate has unleashed the first action-packed trailer for "Gods of Egypt," the fantasy adventure from "The Crow" and "Dark City" director Alex Proyas.

The film gathers an ensemble cast -- Brenton Thwaites, Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Chadwick Boseman, Geoffrey Rush, Rufus Sewell, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton and Elodie Yung -- for a tale about the god Set's bid to take over the throne of ancient Egypt, and the mission undertaken by a mortal and a deity to save the world.

"Gods of Egypt" opens Feb. 26.

In this spectacular action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt, the survival of mankind hangs in the balance as an unexpected mortal hero Bek (Brenton Thwaites) undertakes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. In order to succeed, he must enlist the help of the powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen takes them into the afterlife and across the heavens, both god and mortal must pass tests of courage and sacrifice if they hope to prevail in the epic final confrontation.
