Is that a giant oompa-loompa chasing Christian Bale? No! The Dark Knight exchanges his cape for a sword as Christian Bale leads the Israelites to freedom In first trailer for Exodus: Gods And Kings.
Before we finally see the long awaited Blade Runner sequel and Prometheus 2 Ridley Scott returns with the epic biblical story of Moses who freed the Israelites slaves from the clutches of the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses.Bale has the task of leading the freed slaves on the monumental journey, one that Moses leads the 600,000 through a cycle of plagues, away from his childhood friend Ramses (Joel Edgerton) who has been oppressing them.
Take away the box office record of many of Ridley Scott‘s recent films you cannot the British veteran knows the ins and outs of delivering visual appeal of a epic blockbuster. When it comes to the sandal flicks Gladiator is that perfect example and if he can recapture even a part of that film cinephiles will be over the moon, so will we! It may have been a a worldwide box office success but can Exodus: Gods And Kings deliver more positive reviews than Noah (out DVD 21st July)?
This is the American trailer but we’ll expect the UK version to arrive shortly. Exodus: Gods And Kings will arrive in UK Boxing Day 26th December 2 weeks after US release which is 12th December. The film also stars Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley.
