9 'Tut' Trailer Moments That Prove Spike's New TV Miniseries Is Going To Be So Insane — VIDEO
A new mini series will hit television this summer, and it looks like a bloody good time — emphasis on bloody, of course. A new trailer for Spike's mini-series Tut hit the internet Thursday, and let's just say that Tut isn't your parent's biopic. The three-episode series, which premieres on July 19, stars Avan Jogia of Twisted (RIP!) as the titular "Boy King of Egypt," while Ben Kingsley plays Ay, the Grand Vizier to King Tutankhamun, as well as the king's most trusted advisor — even if, as Ay says in the trailer, there is no one that Tut should trust in Egypt. The story of Egypt's New Kingdom is intriguing all on its own, but the trailer makes the whole thing look so damn good.
Spike is pulling out all the stops for its first scripted series in eight years, with the trailer teasing plenty of violence, betrayal, and even a smidge of sexy time. The cable series has a big-screen feel with plenty of epic battle scenes, and lots of good-looking people doing terrible things.
The trailer may clock in at a mere 2:07, but it features plenty of can't-miss moments from the new series that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Check them out:

Executions are a regular thing in Tut's kingdom, and Ay needs him to be prepared.
