I could go on for days about the historical innacuracies of those movies, but I don't see the point. It was just an action movie. You were quite right though. By the establishment of the New Kingdom and the height of religious power at Thebes, the 'Heliopolis of the South', Pyramid building as occurred in the Old and to some extent the Middle Kingdoms had ceased. Pyramidions tended to placed on the sites of rock-cut tombs to mark the tombs of high officials and the pyramid shape was also retained to cap obelisks in a bid to retain that traditional element of Egyptian religion.

I have hidden depths y'know! :-)
