3 new posters have been released for Exodus: Gods and Kings, the upcoming biblical epic from director Ridley Scott. The first poster sees Christian Bale’s Moses somewhat awkwardly fighting Joel Edgerton’s Rameses; maybe it’s the sea parting that can explain their seriously distracted faces? The second poster is of Bale and the third is of Edgerton, who’s gone just a tad overboard with the make-up.
We’ve said it before: we’re approaching this film with caution. While Scott has proven himself a master filmmaker in the past (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down), it’s been a long time since he’s truly impressed. Fingers crossed…
Exodus: Gods and Kings also stars Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver.
