NEW POSTERS FOR RIDLEY SCOTT'S 'EXODUS GODS AND KINGS' ANCIENT EGYPTIAN HISTORICAL EPIC WITH CHRISTIAN BALE, JOEL EDGERTON, SIGOURNEY WEAVER, AARON PAUL, BEN KINGSLEY

EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS
EPIC NEW POSTERS ARE HERE!
The end of this year is bringing us a number of epic adventures to the big screens, and beside the final chapter of THE HOBBIT THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES, another epic spectacle to feast our eyes on will definitely be Ridley Scott's Ancient Egypt historical movie of humongous proportions EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS. The movie just got three new posters and you can check them out today! With Christian Bale leading the star studded cast the movie will battle its way into cinemas December 12th!

THE STAR STUDDED CAST
CHRISTIAN BALE, AARON PAUL, JOEL EDGERTON, BEN KINGSLEY
Ridley Scott's visually mindblowing and large scale interpretation of the legendary exodus of the Hebrews from Ancient Egypt as led by Moses (Christian Bale) and related in the Old Testament Book of Exodus, will also star Australian actor Joel Edgerton as Egyptian ruler Pharaoh Ramesses II, with Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro as his parents Tuya and Seti! Aaron Paul will sport a long hair as Joshua, with Ben Kingsley as Nun and Indira Varma as High Priestess Miriam! The lavish costumes are done by famous Oscar winner Janty Yates who already worked with Ridley on his other historical classics GLADIATOR, ROBIN HOOD and in KINGDOM OF HEAVEN!

DEFYING AN EMPIRE
The sweeping historical epic will bring 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 Ramesses (Joel Edgerton), setting 400,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues. Check out the breathtaking trailer below:

  2. The story of Moses really is remarkable. Raised to think he was Egyptian Royalty, undoubtedly taught to despise the Jewish slaves as inferior pawns, and then to discover on adulthood that he is one of them! Talk about existential angst. But then he embraces who he truly is and leads his people to freedom. I never really understood the emotional significance of Moses's story until I went through the coming out process with its similar discoveries, shocks, adjustments and triumphs.

  4. I hope we get to see Moses forget about that Thou Shalt Not Kill thing he preached about. Though to be fair, a majority of biblical characters have been hypocrites.

  5. Christian Bale... Just hearing his name makes me pale. Or blue if I were white. "I'm BATMAN!!!!!!" No, you're not - not even if you tried a bit harder. I'm sure he's a great guy and all, but Idon't like any of his movies, including his first :(

  6. As I watched the trailer I thought of the discovery made at the location of chariot wheels, armor and all sorts of things. Don't remember the discoverer's name, but it sent chills up my spine. This will good. Janty Yates on the costumes has done it again.

    2. Haven't seen the movie but oh yes, there are some very expensive treasures at the site of the crossing. It was more like 6 million that crossed the path through the sea. I'll try to find the link for the documentary.
