  • Box Office Bomb: Budget, $140 million (not counting marketing costs), approx. $170 million (counting them). Box office, $30.7 million (domestic so far), $150.7 million (worldwide), total loss: Almost 100 million. Easily the biggest bomb of the careers of both Gerard Butler and Chadwick Boseman. The film also opened during Deadpool's run, and then had to compete against Disney's Zootopia.
  • Celebrity Voice Actor: In the Japanese dub, Bek is voiced by Yuuta Tamamori, from the band Kis-My-Ft2 and Zaya by fashion model Mei Nagano, who played Sanjō Tsubame in the Rurouni Kenshin live-action films.
  • Dueling Works:
  • Dear Negative Reader: After the film's disastrous opening weekend, Alex Proyas went on an epic rant on Facebook lashing out against "politically correct" film critics who gave the movie negative reviews and calling them "Deranged idiots".

  • Fake Nationality: None of the actors in the movie are actually Egyptian. Butler, who plays Set, is Scottish. Coster-Waldau, who plays Horus, is Danish. The Australian Geoffrey Rush plays Ra. The French-Cambodian Elodie Yung plays Hathor. Chadwick Boseman, who plays Thoth, is American.
  • Old Shame: Chadwick Boseman didn’t exactly seem proud of his participation in the movie.
