"While investigating the origins of an ancient Egyptian artifact, a macho military leader and a timid linguist are transported through an interdimensional gate across the universe to a startlingly Earthlike world. There they find a despot who posits himself as the god Ra. Kurt Russell (of Escape from New York, Big Trouble In Little China and John Carpenter's remake of The Thing), James Spader (Supernova, the SCI FI Pictures original Alien Hunter) and Jaye Davidson (The Crying Game) star in this epic adventure directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day). Look quickly for an uncredited John Rhys-Davies (the Lord of the Rings trilogy, TV's Sliders) in a cameo at an archeological dig."

The SciFi channel's NBC spanish sister station Telemundo aired the movie in 2006 (dubbed into Spanish. The guy who did Kurt's voice sounded even more macho than Kurt!)

Fun fact: in 2016 a dagger that was buried with King Tut had metal that experts have not been able to fully analyze since 1922, was finally analyzed. The blade has iron with a higher than usual content of cobalt and nickle, identical to a meteorite in the Red Sea area. Apparently the ancient metal workers made the blade out of metal they saw fall from space...
