King Tut (Avan Jogia) rides into battle with his army in the brand new trailer for the upcoming TUT.
The mini-series event explores the drama of power, political back-stabbing, war and murder and chronicles King Tut’s rise to glory, his efforts to rule a chaotic empire and the enigma surrounding his death.
“While we were filming, we found more evidence of Tutankhamun’s death, his physical ailments, and all kinds of extraordinary details,” Sir Ben Kingsley, who plays Ay, the grand vizier to King Tutankhamun, shared with Yahoo.
He added, “And a lot of the stuff that was found, [including] the contents of his tomb, are replicated beautifully in Tut. The Ancient Egyptians were committed to the idea of immortality, and they achieved it. Because we are using what they left behind and are putting it on the screen.”
TUT premieres on Sunday, July 19th @ 9PM ET/PT on Spike.
