Gods of Egypt - 4K Ultra HD, 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack Hitting May 31st

Gods of Egypt is one that I missed in theaters this winter. I can't say that I know many folks who made it out, but I'll let you know that Geoffrey Rus is one of my favorite modern actors, I liked I, Robot from director Alex Proyas and I dug The Last Witch Hunter written by Matt Sazama. I'm gonna give this one a shot. We should have a review up for you in the coming weeks, but until then check out the trailer and the info below concerning the upcoming release. I like to give all movies a chance, so let's see if this one can transcend its rather Transformers esque cover. Something about the battle of Gods no matter who forced into a modern Hollywood formula works for me. Look at all that CG though. It's like a digital painting of a movie.

Also, we may have a pending giveaway for the Blu-ray. More details once confirmed.
