New “Exodus: Gods and Kings” Trailer Released


Ridley Scott is a master at directing epics, and he pulled off one of his more amazing feats by shooting Exodus: Gods and Kings in just 74 days. Christian Bale joins Scott’s sword and sandal universe as Moses with Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Animal Kingdom) playing the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses.

20th Century Fox provided the media with an early look of Exodus: Gods and Kings, as they showed select scenes from the film, followed by a Q&A with Christian Bale (the event’s details are covered in a Hitfix post).

Although the special effects and music were still at their temp stages, Ridley Scott’s visually ambitious scope was fully evident in a riveting action sequence involving Edgerton and Bale. The chemistry between the two leads is also evident, and co-star Maria Valverde (The Liberator) also lights up the screen as Moses’ love interest.

With such epics as Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, and Robin Hood under his belt, Ridley Scott looks like he’s in fine form with Exodus: Gods and Kings.

Audience members can decide for themselves if Scott and company pull it off when the film opens nationwide December 12. But for now here’s the latest trailer that was just released this morning:

Exodus: Gods and Kings opens nationwide December 12.
