It’ll be interesting to see if Fox’s big-budget bet with Exodus: Gods And Kings pays off, taking the biblical story of Moses and giving it all the modern special effects it can handle. Now a new trailer has arrived, which certainly tries to sell it on the spectacle rather than religion.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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 Rhamses (Joel Edgerton), setting 400,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.’
The movie will be in UK cinemas on December 26th.
