The movie's costumes are out of this world but the tassels, beadwork and mesh details that went into this actress' outfit were pretty spectacular too.
So Gerard Butler surely didn't mind that his sexy co-star Courtney Eaton swayed attention her way at the New York premiere of their film Gods Of Egypt on Wednesday.
Courtney's unique frock was made of black fabric with high collar and long sleeves, and embellishments galore that seemed to vie for space.
Gods and goddesses: Gerard Butler looked suave but his co-star Courtney Eaton was stunning in a heavily embellished blue mini-dress at the NY premiere of their film Gods Of Egypt on Wednesday
The thigh-skimming hemline allowed the 20-year-old Australian star to showcase her long legs and her delicately strapped high heels.
She wore her raven-dark locks pulled back from her face and she clutched a silvery bag while posing along the red carpet.
Gerard plays Set, the merciless god of darkness who invades Egypt's throne in the fantasy adventure
Details: Courtney's frock was made of black fabric and was decorated with tassels, beads and mesh detailing
To the theatre: The 20-year-old Australian actress showed off a bit of leg as she rode the escalator
Theme going on: The film's Elodie Yung was every bit the vixen in her plunging white gown with tassel necklace that tied in with the tassel theme attached to Courtney's dress
The film follows a mortal hero named Bek (Brenton Thwaites) who enlists the god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to wrestle their land away from Set.
The 46-year-old Scottish actor looked mortal enough too at this event.
Gerard wore in a black pin-striped suit with white shirt and a neutral-toned tie to match.
Courting controversy: Gerard posed with the film's director Alex Proyas who came under fire during production for not employing a racially diverse cast
Standing by the other man: The 46-year-old Scottish hunk smiled beside a poster of himself as the film's mean god of darkness Set
Does my hair look all right? Gerard paused and smoothed back his hair
A round of applause: Something caught the eye of Gerard as he took the trip up the escalator
He sported a closely cropped beard and his signature crooked smile as he wandered down the arrivals line.
At one point, he stopped to pose with the film's director Alex Proyas.
The director fended off controversy during production for hiring white actors to play Egyptians, and resulted in Proyas apologising for the lack of racial diversity in the film.
Damsel in no distress: Eludie posed with the film's other leading man Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Action hero and heroine: While fans know Nikolaj from Game Of Thrones, others will soon see Eludie in her next film - the action flick Hitman's Bodyguard starring Ryan Reynolds and Salma Hayek
Debonair: Nikolaj was suited up in a blue dress jacket and black trousers with a patterned tie and white shirt
He's taken: The Danish-born hunk was joined by his actress-singer wife Sascha Nukka Motzfeldt
'The process of casting a movie has many complicated variables, but it is clear that our casting choices should have been more diverse,' Proyas said in a statement posted by Forbes.com.
He concluded: 'I sincerely apologize to those who are offended by the decisions we made.'
This event, however, went on without a hitch apparently, with the presence of the film's Elodie Yung, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and others to keep it interesting.
The 35-year-old Elodie exuded confidence as she posed in a plunging white embossed gown with sheer detailing in front and a billowing hemline.

The French beauty wore her hair loose and slightly tousled and there was a tassel pendant necklace dressing up her daring decolletage.

Strappy beige heels, dark purple lipstick and a double strand of necklaces completed Abbey's look.
