‘Exodus’ Trailer: Christian Bale Leads the War Between ‘Gods and Kings’
Biblical epics are all the rage right now, but the first 'Exodus' trailer, previewing Christian Bale's turn as Moses, reinforces how unique and unexpected this film adaptation will be.
To the delight of Batman fans everywhere, Christian Bale is our savior, portraying Moses as he seeks to free the Israelites in ancient Egypt. (In case you didn't know, Bale previously portrayed Jesus Christ, so this is another check mark on his Biblical bucket list.) Joel Edgerton portrays the villainous Pharaoh Ramses, who seeks to maintain his tyrannical hold over the slaves.
If Bale wasn't enough to pique your interest, how about Ridley Scott at the helm? Or perhaps even supporting cast members Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro? In any case, there's enough promise that this film could be better than previous Bible-based films 'Noah' and 'Son of God.'
In addition to the 'Exodus' trailer, three new posters debuted (shown below), though the footage looks more enticing. 'Exodus' (officially titled 'Exodus: Gods and Kings') debuts December 12.
