In what might be the first time we've seen the Biblical figure of Moses without long hair, the first look photo from Ridley Scott's epic Exodus has arrived with a glimpse at Christian Bale as the man who speaks to a burning bush. It's a simple photo featuring Bale atop a horse as the slaves of the Pharaoh Rhamses II (Joel Edgerton) build monuments in the desert. Scott's film will follow Moses from his near death as an infant to his adoption into the Egyptian royal family, as well as his defiance of the Pharaoh and deliverance of the Hebrews from enslavement. Are we looking at a return to awards season worthiness for Scott? Look!
