Ahead of Sunday’s big game, Lionsgate has debuted the Gods of Egypt Super Bowl TV spot online, which looks like Clash of the Titans on LSD.

Directed by Alex Proyas (The Crow), who was born in Alexandria, Egypt, from a script written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (The Last Witch Hunter), the film features Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as the Egyptian god Horus and Gerard Butler as his power-hungry brother Set, along with Brenton Thwaites as the mortal hero Bek as well as Chadwick Boseman, Elodie Yung, Courtney Eaton and Geoffrey Rush, among others.

This over-the-top action-adventure opens on February 26, 2016. Check out the Gods of Egypt Super Bowl spot, filled with heavy special effects and heart-pounding music.

This year, commercials reached a record high of $5 million per 30-second spot so the cost of airing this 60-second Super Bowl spot will cost $10 million…

Alex Proyas' Action-Adventure

Magic, monsters, gods and madness reign throughout the palaces and pyramids of the Nile River Valley in this action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt. With the survival of mankind hanging in the balance, an unexpected hero takes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. With only a handful of heroic rebels opposing Set’s savage rule, Bek (Brenton Thwaites), a bold and defiant mortal, enlists the aid of powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against the evil overlord. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen take 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 spectacular final confrontation.
