Apple has posted the first official trailer for Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’, which will hit theaters on December 12, 2014.
From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state-of-the-art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ stars Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Trilogy) as Moses, Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby) as Rhamses, Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) as Joshua, John Turturro (Quiz Show) as Seti, Sigourney Weaver (Avatar) as Tuya, and Ben Kingsley (Ender’s Game) as Nun.
This movie looks absolutely amazing! I am a huge fan of Ridley Scott. In fact, I can’t think of one singly Ridley Scott movie that I do not love. I will be the first in line to see this movie.
I think it is a unique spin on the Exodus story, to put Christian Bale in the role of Moses, but I know that Bale is more than qualified to take on such an iconic role. With the resurgence of Christian themed movies in theaters, ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’, much like ‘Noah’, looks to be able to cross over the genres and pull in large audiences, regardless of religious beliefs.
