Watch: Trailer for Ridley Scott Biblical Epic ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ is Out of Control

Watch: Trailer for Ridley Scott Biblical Epic 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' is Out of Control

In contrast to Ridley Scott’s last project of epic proportions, “Prometheus” (which took place in the future), “Exodus: Gods and Kings” takes us back in time to the days before Christ — specifically to the moment in time when Moses rose up against Ramses and led more than half a million slaves out of Egypt.

Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton co-star as Moses and Rameses, respectively. Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Ben Kingsley and (of course) Sigourney Weaver round out the rest of the cast.

In 20th Century Fox’s first trailer for the film, which you can watch below, it’s not the story that will make you pause, but rather the intricate CGI used to build the world of the film.

“Exodus: Gods and Kings” is slated for a wide release on December 12th.

Fire the person that hired Joel Edgerton to play Ramses. The thinly veiled Australian accent is killing me.


I just can't get excited about any film that is "From Ridley Scott" anymore. I was never a huge fan of his, but at least something like Blade Runner or Alien were at least interesting and had moments of brilliance (even if they didn't fully succeed in my view).

As far as the CGI / visuals – I don't get what you guys are so excited about. Is it really any more impressive than what we saw in say Lord of the Rings? Visually, this looks really uninspired to me. Scott's peak was Blade Runner, but even Gladiator wasn't bad in the visual department. This looks just generic to me.


Won't let me see trailer. This site sucks


LOL, this trailer looks so unbelievable and ridiculous. But I get it, it's Hollywood. Gotta sell those tickets.

EXODUS Gods and Kings opening date is excellent and sure to attract the bible belt crowd. Hopefully, it will not attract unintended negative responses from other groups. Surprising casting.
