After a very disappointing collaboration with novelist Cormac McCarthy on The Counselor last year, Ridley Scott is back to his epic ways of film-making with Exodus: Gods And Kings. Starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, the film is based on the exodus of The Israelites from Egypt led by Moses, and it also relates to The Old Testament Book Of Exodus.
From what the trailer shows, Ridley Scott seems to be on very firm ground as he dramatises the battle between Moses and Ramses II. Christian Bale dons an impressive beard as he plays Moses, while The Great Gatsby’s Joel Edgerton makes an astonishing transformation as Ramses II and with no Whitney Huston-esque soundtrack in sight though like 1998′s The Prince Of Egypt – which is probably a good thing!
Here’s that trailer and scroll down for the posters – which may need a little work before the film is »

Take a look at the Red Sea parting! Listen to the cover of Simple Minds' "Belfast Child!" It's all glorious!
In this adaptation, Christian Bale stars as Moses who dukes it out with Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton barely recognizable) so he can free the slaves and escape Egypt's plagues. So "Ten Commandments" here we come! But, according to Bale, there will be shocking stuff so Scott and company may be a bit liberal in adding or subtracting passages from the bible. Yup, just like "Noah. »
2014 is the year of the Bible. After March’s Flood tale Noah saw a drenched Russell Crowe and Emma Watson fight for survival, another story from the Old Testament is parting the Red Sea and heading to theatres in December.
Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings sees Christian Bale as Moses squaring off against his adopted brother Ramses played by an unrecognizable Joel Edgerton. The 3D film covers the familiar story of the brothers-turned-enemies as Moses rises up against the Pharaoh Ramses in his quest to set 600,000 slaves free while the deadly plagues rain down on Egypt.
Edgerton gives his best Yul Brenner impression while a bearded Bale shows he’s adept at riding a horse and wielding a sword in the heat of battle. The trailer certainly gives new meaning to the term “epic” and is exactly what we have come to expect from the director of Gladiator and Prometheus. »

Following an Oscar nod for his work on American Hustle last year, Christian Bale could well be in line for similar recognition this December when Ridley Scott unveils his biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings.
The film is set to retell the story of Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, and is sure to have one of the biggest scopes of any film this year.
Scott is directing from a script first co-written by Bill Coolage and Adam Cooper (Assassin’s Creed, Tower Heist), with Oscar winner Steven Zaillian (Moneyball, Schindler’s List) hired to do a subsequent rewrite.

Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings is one of the many bible epics that's set to hit the big screen in the near future. 20th Century Fox finally released the first trailer for the December-release, featuring Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Ramses. Check it out below.
The story of Moses has been adapted before – most brilliantly by Cecil B. DeMille in 1956's The Ten Commandments, which I watched religiously as a kid (call me crazy) – and some of you might be dismissing this film because of its bible roots. But this is a Ridley Scott production and here's what can be said about this short teaser: if anything, it'll be visually stunning. For some reason, the trailer only focuses on Moses relationship with Ramses (them growing up like brothers), and holds back from what came later – Moses taking the people of Israel out of Egypt's bondage. »

Over the course of a career going back nearly 50 years, director Ridley Scott has garnered a large amount of commercial and critical acclaim, helming classics such as Alien, Blade Runner, and Thelma and Louise alongside other well-regarded films such as Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Kingdom of Heaven, and American Gangster. Many were thus excited to learn that Scott had already begun work on a new project. Titled Exodus: Gods and Kings, Scott directs from a screenplay by Steven Zaillian, Bill Collage, and Adam Cooper, working with a cast that includes Christian Bale, Aaron Paul, Sir Ben Kingsley, Joel Edgerton, and Sigourney Weaver. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

When we think of historical epics, a certain grand scale of filmmaking comes to mind, and few pull it off better than Ridley Scott. His Moses saga Exodus: Gods and Kings (previously known simply as Exodus) hits theaters this December, and is the second blockbuster Biblical retelling of 2014, after Darren Aronofsky’s Noah.
Scott’s take on the Old Testament story boasts a terrific cast, with Christian Bale as Moses, Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby) as his adoptive brother (and eventual enemy) Ramses, Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) as Joshua, alongside Sigourney Weaver (Avatar), Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3) and John Turturro (Transformers: Dark of the Moon).
While Scott has long held that his take on the famous story will focus more on the characters than the set pieces – such as the iconic Parting of the Red Sea in Cecil B. DeMille’s 1956 classic The Ten ...

Having tackled the future with Prometheus and the present via The Counsellor, Ridley Scott is doing an inverse Scrooge for his next film and dipping into the past. The biblical past, in fact, with Moses tale Exodus: Gods And Kings. Scott's latest charts the relationship between Moses (Christian Bale) and Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), one that is quickly sent packing with demands, plagues, suffering and a very long walk. Yes, it’s the old story of Moses demanding that pharaoh sets his people free so he can lead them to the Promised Land. Pharaoh, of course, has no intention of releasing his largely slave workforce, and the stage is set for an epic showdown.Scott has opted for old-school scale on this one, constructing massive sets for his Egyptian story, which pumps up the story to match the ambition of the designs, with it all on display in this initial promo. »
The first trailer for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings has been released. The film tells the epic biblical story of Moses, who led the Israelites out of Egypt into the Sinai desert and to their Promised Land. Moses is played by Christian Bale in the film, which also stars Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, and of course, Ben Kingsley.
I wasn't sure what I would think about this movie, but judging from this first trailer it looks really good. As you'll see, it's got everything that we love about the films that Scott makes. I especially love the visuals.
The film is set to be released on December 12th. »

For what seems like months now, the roster of 2015 Oscar contenders has been set. We’ve got Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, David Fincher’s Gone Girl, David Ayer’s Fury and Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman all touching down in the last three months of the year, and any of them could be heavyweights on the awards circuit. But one high-profile blockbuster has been so surprisingly quiet in the past few months that we seem to have counted it out of the race altogether – I’m talking about Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings.
Tonight, we’ve been treated to the first trailer for the Biblical epic, which is sure to get people buzzing about whether it could stand a chance of racking up some nominations against the aforementioned line-up of seemingly strong fall hopefuls. »
