The official trailer for the Egyptian Sci-Fi epic film “Oscar: The Return of The Mammoth” has been unveiled.

The cast also includes Ahmed Salah Hosny, Hanady Mehanna, Mohamed Tharwat, and more.

The pic hails from director Hesham El-Rashidy and scriptwriters Mustafa Askar and Hamed Al-Sharab.

It marks Hosny's first lead role in a film as well as his comeback to the big screen after four years of absence. He made his last onscreen appearance in the 2019 film “Al Mamar” (The Passage), which made a comeback for war films in the Egyptian cinema after an absence of 20 years or more.

“Oscar: The Return of The Mammoth” is centered around a mission of reviving the mammoth in a number of foreign countries, but as fate has it, the plane carrying the creature falls in Egypt.

It is produced by Trend, which had previously participated in many Hollywood movies and TV shows, including the series “The Boys” and the movie “Lullaby.”

A huge and unprecedented budget has been allocated for the production as well as providing the latest technologies in the field of graphics, which features a large amount of graphics that has never been seen before in any cinematic production in the Middle East.

“Oscar: The Return of The Mammoth” is set to debut sometime later in 2024.
