First Look at Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus': Christian Bale Reboots Moses

Exodus First Look
20th Century Fox

Biblical epics are so in right now! As Darren Aronofsky readies to premiere his version of ‘Noah‘ with Russell Crowe, director Ridley Scott has his own retelling to tell. The first look at ‘Exodus,’ which chronicles the story of Moses, has arrived and features Christian Bale on horseback as he surveys the tragedy inflicted on his people in ancient Egypt.

No, this is not like ‘The Prince of Egypt’ where Moses summons godly plagues to the tune of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey’s “When You Believe.” Dare we say this is a more “gritty” take?

‘Exodus’ features an interesting cast — Joel Edgerton as Pharaoh Ramses, John Turturro as Ramses’ father Seti, Sigourney Weaver as Ramses’ mother Tuya, Aaron Paul as Hebrew slave Joshua (who leads his people to the Promised Land after Moses) and Ben Kingsley. The story comes from the classic Bible tale of Moses as he leads the Israelites out of Egypt and into the Promised Land, and as Scott previously said of the affair, it’s going to be “f—ing huge!”

‘Exodus’ will hit theaters December 12, 2014. Take a look at the full image below (and click to see a larger copy), courtesy of Empire.
