Exodus: Gods And Kings – Trailer11.07.14 # Trailers # 2 Comments
Christian Bale is Moses in Ridley Scott’s new biblical epic. Just don’t lend him your iPad, he has a habit of breaking tablets.
Exodus: Gods and Kings follows Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt into the Sinai desert and eventually to their Promised Land. Joel Edgerton plays Ramses. John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver play Ramses’ parents, while Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) will play Hebrew slave Joshua. There’s something I never thought I’d write.
Stunning imagery, no doubt. Co-scripted by A-list writer Steven Zaillian (Moneyball, American Gangster), Scott has been misjudging most projects in recent years, from Robin Hood to Prometheus to The Counsellor. He’s also been critical of religion in the past, and Bale says expect Exodus to be “shocking”. This should be fascinating …however it turns out.
Exodus: Gods and Kings is released 12th December in the US, 26th December in the UK.
