Will Exodus: Gods and Kings usher in a new wave of big budget biblical epics? If it hits big numbers, between Exodus and Noah it may well convince Hollywood to put the many bible-based movies they’ve got into development into production.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Twentieth Century Fox present the theatrical release of EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS in the UK and Ireland on 26th December. 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.
