Ancient Egypt Today


Sir Ben Kingsley stars as an advisor to King Tutankhamun (Source: Entertainment Weekly).

“It isn’t always easy being king, as Egypt’s boy monarch Tutankhamun proves in an exclusive new trailer from Tut, an upcoming mini-series from Spike TV.

Oscar winner Ben Kingsley plays mentor to King Tut (Avan Jogia), who has some trouble getting Egypt’s support. “Who can I trust?” Tut asks Kingsley’s character, Ay, at one point. “No one,” Ay coldly replies. What follows is plenty of violence, some sex, and lots of fire. Think Game of Thrones, but with more pyramids and fewer dragons.”

Tut will air over three nights—July 19th to July 21st—on Spike at 9pm in the USA. The UK premiere will air on Channel 5 (dates to be confirmed).

Watch the trailer below:
