An epic Thanksgiving television spot has been released promoting Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods & Kings, and it’s downright slick. Why haven’t all the trailers been like this?
This promo’s tone goes straight for the action, driving home as much disaster footage and shots of war as it can in under two minutes. While we’re a little worried about how much of that final sea-parting moment they’re willing to give away, this is a pretty exciting look at the upcoming biblical epic.
Exodus: Gods & Kings stars Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley.
Official synopsis for Exodus: Gods and Kings:
From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state-of-the-art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
