Thousands of years ago, the great Child King Tutankhamen ruled. Few know the details of his life, no one knows the secrets of his death. All that is about to change.
It's 1922, and free-spirited archaeologist Danny Freemont (Casper Van Dien, Sleepy Hollow) is infamous for his outlandish theories about the pyramids, Atlantis, alien civilizations, and the Egyptian Book of the Dead. He may enliven the lectures at Cairo University, but he certainly infuriates serious Egyptologists like the beautiful Dr. Azelia Barakat (Leonora Varela, Cleopatra), especially when it comes to his speculations about the life and death of Tutankhamen. Freemont is certain that if found, the Emerald Tablet, rumoured to be buried in Tut's tomb, would hold the power to control the world. Unfortunately, the only one who believes Freemont is nefarious archaeologist Morgan Sinclair (Jonathan Hyde, Titanic), a member of the diabolical secret cabal known as the Hellfire Council.
Sinclair wants the tablet to summon and harness an invincible evil, and he's fully prepared to follow Freemont to the ends of the earth to get it. It's up to Freemont to outrun him. With the help of a crackerjack team, that includes the still-doubtful Dr. Barakat, Freemont's two best friends, Andrew Walker (Niko Nicotera, Icon) and Jason McGreevey (Steven Waddington, The Last of the Mohicans), French Legionnaire Jacques Belmond (Patrickl Toomey, Richard II), and Rembrandt (Tat Whalley, The Messenger), an explosives expert. Freemont will venture into the Valley of the Kings, toward Tut's tomb, nearer the portal to another world, and closer to the truth behind a mystery that will change the world forever - or end it.
Directed by action movie veteran Russell Mulcahy (Highlander) and co-staring Golden Globe nominee Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) and Simon Callow (Phantom of the Opera), The Curse of King Tut's Tomb takes audiences across continents, spanning hundreds of centuries, bounding through the imagination.
