EXCLUSIVE: Your First Look at Courtney Eaton (a.k.a. Zaya) in Gods of Egypt
After The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 hits theaters on November 20, the need for action and adventure is going to hit an all-time high. “We want more!” you’ll chant with urgency. Star Wars: The Force Awakens may fill some of the void come December, but it’s a different kind of adventure than we’re used to, and The Divergent Series: Allegiant won’t hit theaters until March. What’s a fangirl to do? Fortunately, there may be a solution.
Courtesy of Summit — you know, the studio behind the likes of Twilight and Divergent — there’s another tale in the works, Gods of Egypt, that could help you get your fix. SYNOPSIS: “In this spectacular action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt, the survival of mankind hangs in the balance as an unexpected mortal hero Bek undertakes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. In order to succeed, he must enlist the help of the powerful god Horus in an unlikely 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. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen takes 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 epic final confrontation.”
And, because we love you, our dedicated readers, oh so much, we’re here to hook you up with an exclusive. Today, six GoE character posters are hitting the Internet, and we snagged one of ’em! The film stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Horus), Brenton Thwaites (Bek), Chadwick Boseman (Thoth), Elodie Yung (Hathor), Courtney Eaton (Zaya), with Gerard Butler (Set) and Geoffrey Rush (Ra), and we’re debuting Courtney’s poster:
In case you’re wondering why Courtney’s name sounds so familiar, it’s because she’s Ross Lynch‘s girlfriend! The two can be spotted kissing on the Disney Channel star’s Instagram, plus she’s actually featured in R5‘s “All Night” music video. Her first and only role prior to Gods of Egypt was in 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, so, needless to say, the 19-year-old Australian beauty is starting her career off the right way.
Gods of Egypt hits theaters on February 26.
