The story of Moses is easily one of the most recognizable and known stories out there. As a child, almost everyone is taught his story and what he did. Over the years, there have been many movies and versions of his story. Now Ridley Scott is taking a crack at it, taking it to that epic scale. Exodus: Gods and Kings has its second trailer.
Exodus: Gods and Kings brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
You would think that Ridley Scott would have the benefit of the doubt from his years of filmmaking, but that’s not the case. Over the last so many years, he has made a ton of stinkers taking that right away. So as far as Exodus goes, it looks like it has the potential to be great and a true Ridley Scott film (hopefully), but I won’t be able to say that until I’m done watching it.
Exodus: Gods and Kings opens in theaters on December 12th, 2014. Directed by Ridley Scott starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, Indira Varma, and María Valverde.
