Exodus: Gods & Kings

"Let's just see who's more effective at killing. You or me." Following some new first look images featuring Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Ramses II (with plenty of orange on his body), and some pretty disappointing teaser posters earlier today, the first trailer for Exodus: Gods & Kings has arrived. Director Ridley Scott has struggled to reclaim greatness for years now and we're not sure this is going to do it. The film just feels like an expensive stage play, with Bale and Edgerton both looking silly. The scope and production value is there with stunning visuals, but for some reason the film feels dated and unexciting.

Here's the first trailer for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods & Kings, in high def from Apple:

Check out the first questionable teaser posters with Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton right here.

Exodus: Gods and Kings is directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Robin Hood, Alien, Blade Runner) and written by Adam Cooper & Bill Collage (Tower Heist, Accepted), with a rewrite by Steve Zaillian (American Gangster, Moneyball, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). The film follows Christian Bale (The Dark Knight, Out of the Furnace) as Moses, chronicling the Biblical figures life from his adoption by Egyptian royals through his revolution against Pharaoh Ramses II (Joel Edgerton). Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver. 20th Century Fox will release the film just before Christmas on December 12th.

I dunno. I used to say in Ridley we trust but...lots of obvious CGI. Still. It has potential...

Sascha Dikiciyan on Jul 8, 2014


You're way too pretentious to enjoy his movies

HotPocket on Jul 8, 2014


At least im not hiding under same lame user nick. Hey, its my opinion. Im a movie nut. I love movies. Its a free country, let me know when that dildo is out of your ass and we talk...

Sascha Dikiciyan on Jul 8, 2014


I think Ridley is amazing at directing CGI. I agree prometheus wasnt his strongest film, but visually it was a contender for my favorite of the year. Absolutely beautiful. Im hoping this is the same, at least on that front.

jay on Jul 8, 2014


Not sure if I agree with your assessment Ethan. Looks pretty incredible to me so far! That last shot is a beauty. I'm excited for this big time.

The book is better.

The Walking Cuban on Jul 8, 2014


You're hilarious you should try stand up

Terry Craig on Jul 8, 2014


Um, thanks? Try the veal? I'm here til Tax extension day? My point is they will obviously add to, take away from, or otherwise modify the Word. You're better off reading the bible than watching any movie based on anything from it's pages.

Looks solid

This is 2014 but yet Hollywood still hasn't figured out how to properly cast a movie about Egyptians! Joel Edgerton as Ramses! Are you kidding me??smh!!!

Rage72 on Jul 8, 2014


who should they cast....a modern day Egyptian actor??! You realize modern day ppl actually specifically from that region look different than their ancestors?? So that still would be miscasting if ur basing it on looks....such a tired arguement

desispeed on Jul 9, 2014


You just answered your own question dumbass!!This movie is supposed to historically portray how Moses and especially Ramses looked back then, in which would make them ancestors right? piss off you dumbass!

Rage72 on Jul 9, 2014


historical? haha what history book were you reading that talked bout Moses and Ramses ?? Your ancient ancestors don't look like you today genius...actual modern day Egyptians have no connection to the ancient Egyptians in culture, religion, and definitely complexity!!....sounds like you have less than zero understanding about the subject and are just whining

desispeed on Jul 9, 2014


Your dad should have used a coathanger

Sascha Dikiciyan on Jul 9, 2014


You incredibly small minded little shit... This movie is supposed to historically portray how Moses and especially Ramses acted and behaved back then. With family and politics. Not how they fucking looked and what kind of makeup they bought from Sephora.

ali3000 on Jul 12, 2014


Shut the fuck up you piece of shit! We're talking about how outrageous it is in 2014 to have whites playing Egyptians! Nobody asked for your opinion, so go suck your mother!

Rage72 on Jul 12, 2014


Damn it! The video has already been deleted!

John Doe on Jul 8, 2014


Give it a watch on Apple for now, everywhere else is being removed until tomorrow:

Alex Billington on Jul 8, 2014


Hopefully the movie is next...

cuckoozey on Jul 9, 2014


Lord knows that I'm a Christian Bale fan, but I thought in 2014, that Hollywood was brave enough to have a biblical movie, without having to cast white actors in the main roles. Apparently all of the Egyptians in ancient art, were just white people wearing darker skinned makeup.

marccoogs on Jul 8, 2014


Aussies and Brits playing Egyptians? LOL. Guess it was the same for Gladiator and that turned out pretty good. I'll probably check this out.

Trey Wilson on Jul 8, 2014


I had no idea Joel Edgerton was Egyptian.

aclasschris on Jul 8, 2014


I saw this movie like 15 years ago, back when I found out Val Kilmer and Sandra Bullock were Egyptian.

Zen on Jul 9, 2014


Ridley Scott hasn't made a good movie in a really long time.

Jameson Cyr on Jul 8, 2014


I can't really remember the last recent film he has made I really have liked. Prometheus was an absolute mess but I blame the script rewrite on that. He still holds some of his great skills when it comes to directing and visuals, but you know things aren't always perfect forever. He had his days. Even if you look at his filmography it's kind of a bit uneven. Sure he did have some classics under his belt but were talking Alien and Blade Runner old.

Stephen Ritchie on Jul 8, 2014


Gladiator isn't that old and should be viewed as one of his best.

Steven on Jul 9, 2014


Gladiator and Black Hawk Down are I think his best films, I love them. But The Counselor, Prometheous, Robin Hood, and Kingdom of Heaven have caused me to lose faith in Ridley Scott. I think he has lost his touch.

Jameson Cyr on Jul 9, 2014


Yeah there seems to be something missing in those films. I actually really like KoH, but Robin Hood was lacking for sure, though had so much potential.

Steven on Jul 9, 2014


last one i enjoyed was american gangster

HG2012 on Jul 9, 2014


Still a better love story than Twilight

Smallchief on Jul 8, 2014


IMO, Scott is still an incredible director. I wasnt sold on Prometheus entirely either, but with the script he was using, as a director I thought he did a pretty stand up job, and the guy clearly knows how to make a SFX driven film absolutely stunning. Honestly, with even a C- script, if the visuals and soundtrack are as mesmerizing in the feature as they are in this trailer, itll be a win for me.

jay on Jul 8, 2014


Looks kind of awesome. With Scott directing, you know it'll be a shortened version. Not sure if I'd rather just wait for the director's cut. Hmm...

Jonathan on Jul 8, 2014


This looks like a bomb. He needs to rock the Prometheus and Blade runner sequels to make up for the questionable calls he's made in the last little while.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 8, 2014


I'm sorry.... The portrayal of Moses and Ramses just looks wrong. I mean come on seriously orange paint on Joel Edgerton?? uggh

cg on Jul 8, 2014


I totally agree cg!

Rage72 on Jul 9, 2014


Oh come on, it's written by the same people who wrote the masterpieces that are 'Tower Heist' and 'Accepted'!

Shelby Wright on Jul 8, 2014


Hey now accepted was great haha

Jon Odishaw on Jul 9, 2014


Hell Yeah! It looks so fun!

DAVIDPD on Jul 9, 2014


looks awesome.

Quynh Truong on Jul 9, 2014


I like it.

Xerxexx on Jul 9, 2014


white egyptians.

The f*cking oddest song choice, a Simple Minds cover!

plopplop on Jul 9, 2014


This looks amazing

Sascha Dikiciyan on Jul 9, 2014


Last good movie Ridley Scott did was Kingdom of Heaven. The only way to see that film is the Director's Cut. First Darren Aranofsky's Noah, now Ridley Scott's Exodus. Well it has Christian Bale in it, so I'm down.

Gex on Jul 11, 2014


Israelis as the good guys?

Bill on Aug 26, 2014


Love it! Wasn't real keen on the idea until seeing this.
