Check out the final Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer, along with a great new featurette with Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton talking about the film and their roles.
Bale and Edgerton are arguably two of the finest actors around, and we’re pretty damn excited to see them take on Moses and Rameses, respectively. Their passion for the production is infectious, as you’ll see in the marketing video below, which also offers a good amount of behind-the-scenes footage.
It’s been a while since Ridley Scott truly impressed us, but we’ve got our fingers firmly crossed in the hope that this will see him live up to the reputation earned with films such as Alien, Gladiator and Black Hawk Down, just to name a few. Hopefully.
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.
