Mortal hero Bek 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.
In the film, souls pass to the afterlife by having their richness weighed on a scale against a feather by Anubis. In Egyptian mythology, the souls placed their hearts on a scale (as a symbol of the flaws and virtues), which is why internal organs such as the heart were mummified. The movie apparently sets the version of mythology that is known today.
I do not approve of Set's rule. But I doubt yours would be much better.
The giant snakes raise clouds of dust and sand as though they were large tubes of meat being towed across the desert. Snakes don't move like this, for individual belly scales take it in turns to stand stationary, while the others ripple forwards clear of the ground. This can be clearly seen in the wildlife documentary Planet Earth II (2016) where racer snakes chase iguanas that kick up sand with their feet, but the snakes seem to just glide at speed since they never disturb the sandy surface.
The Summit Entertainment logo is shaded red, and briefly takes the form of Egyptian pyramids.
