Besides 8 new images from Ridley Scott’s Bible epic “Exodus,” the studio has also made the title officially “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” What hasn’t changed is that the film still stars Christian Bale as Moses, with Joel Edgerton as baddie Pharaoh Ramses.
The supporting cast includes Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, Indira Varma, and Aaron Paul.
As for the film (via EW):
A pivotal figure in the Old Testament, Moses was a prophet who fought against Pharaoh Ramses to free 600,000 slaves, whom he then led through the desert to escape from Egypt and its 10 deadly plagues. (Along the way he parted the Red Sea and unveiled the Ten Commandments.) But the biblical journey was even more epic than the director remembered. “What I thought I knew about Moses I didn’t really,” Scott says. “Either I wasn’t paying attention in Sunday school or I had forgotten. I was knocked out by who he was and the basics of the story—it has to be one of the greatest adventures and spiritual experiences that could ever have been.”
Plus there’s a totally sweet Chariot race/battle, too.
Moses frees his people this December 12th.
