SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM FRIDAY.

This big-budget biblical spectacle bombed bigger than Exodus: Gods and Kings at the US box-office, but with Gerard Butler headlining they’re hoping it might make a bit more this side of the pond.

Butler stars as the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, and it’s up to a young warrior (Brenton Thwaites) and powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to stop him.

Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman (Captain America: Civil War) co-stars.
