Rodeo FX is proud to have contributed to Alex Poyas’ latest effort, Gods of Egypt. The Rodeo FX team delivered over 190 shots for this epic and spectacular action-adventure movie inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt. Our artists were called upon to create Ra’s majestic boat -a fully CG boat made of reflective gold and crystal- as well as stunning matte paintings, great simulation effects, and a considerable amount of blue screen compositing. Gods of Egypt tells the story of mortal hero Bek, who teams with the god Horus in an alliance against Set, the merciless god of darkness who has usurped Egypt's throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict.
Produced by Summit Entertainment, Gods of Egypt is directed by Alex Proyas and stars Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Brenton Thwaites, Chadwick Boseman, and Geoffrey Rush. Lionsgate released Gods of Egypt in theaters globally starting on February 25, 2016 in 2D, RealD 3D, and IMAX 3D.
