The first trailer for Ridley Scott's epic Exodus: Gods and Kings

Jul. 9, 2014by: Graham McMorrow

The anticipated trailer for Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic, EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS has arrived and it's a very impressive first look. That might not be a huge surprise considering the man that brought us GLADIATOR and KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is at the helm, but check out the madness below. I still have chills!

Here’s the synopsis:

Christian Bale stars as the Israelite Moses, abandoned at birth and raised alongside Rhamses (Joel Edgerton), who becomes the Pharaoh of ancient Egypt. Though brothers, they’re pitted against each other as Moses is compelled to cast off the shackles of slavery and lead his fellow Israelites out from under Rhamses’ thumb.

This movie looks beautiful in every way; the visuals, the great cast and a classic story. It should be an easy frontrunner for some awards if it plays out as good as it looks. I wasn’t expecting much after the lackluster posters that were released; but this brought pure joy and a bit of fear for that poor horse who is about to bite the big one near the end of the trailer. This might be Scott's biggest movie yet in terms of the 3D and visual effects; I can't wait to see it on the big screen.

What do you think of the EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS trailer?

The movie also stars Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, and Aaron Paul. It's set to bring it on December 12, 2014.

Yes, Mr. Scott. There were actually dark-skinned folks in Ancient Egypt before the Romans....before the Arabs. (And, there are many dark-skinned folks in Egypt - which is still in Africa, last I checked - today).

I'll pass on this one.

I can't wait for this to come out on dvd. I'm going to laugh at all the ridiculousness in this movie. Haha.. couldn't even watch the trailer without laughing. So like, God hardens Pharoah's heart, then punishes him for it. ...And I like how all the people who usually complain about race, aren't doing it here.

sure it might be a cool film but.....

Not feeling it. I can't understand why they get white actors to play characters of other ethnicities. Something Hollywood has been guilty of since...

I'M IN THIS MOVIE!

I have the titular line in it. Ramses is teaching Noah how to drive in a desert and Noah says "Let my pickles go!" Then I walk by and say "Boy, I can't believe this exodus, gods and kings." It'll probably be cut out of the theatrical version.

@Leadhand83 ...Posting here as there seems to be an issue with the 'Submit' button when posting a reply.

If you have QuickTime, it now has a message at the top of the browser:

'Allow ...website (in this case joblo.com) to run QuickTime'. - Can then just click 'Allow' or 'Continue Blocking'.

Edit* Nevermind, it has been replaced with a YouTube video.

This is why Ridley is my favorite director. His films visuals always leave me in awe and make me feel like I'm there while in the theater. I hope he has at least 5 films left in him!

Like Jedi_I_Am said, here's to hoping Fox doesn't butcher it like they did with Kingdom of Heaven. Granted, KOH had a phenomenal director's cut, but it would have been nice to see it theatrically.

I still can't shake the feeling that this is just a live action remake of The Prince Of Egypt. I'm just waiting for someone to start singing "When You Believe." (Not saying I'm not excited, this still looks cool as f*** and the trailer is gorgeous.)

Ridley Scott's visual wonder

Scott is still one of the few directors who can make my eyes pop with awe from his visuals.

Looks like even the legendary sir Ridley himself has picked up a thing or two from the visual style of Zack Snyder.

Yup

I just hope the studio lets Scott give us his story and cut of the film. It would be a shame if the same thing that happened to Kingdom of Heaven happens to this movie, even if things turned out alright in the end for Kingdom of Heaven.

Looks fantastic. It's feels like one of those films that has to be great, considering how much talent they have involved in this.

Mildly Underwhelmed...

about the lack of Aaron Paul in the trailer. Otherwise it looked good. I predict many Oscar nominations, but zero wins.

Looks good, I do enjoy Ridley's epic films. And that's a nice cover of 'Belfast Child' (originally by Simple Minds) here. Although I'm not sure who the female singer is.

Why?

Can someone tell me why a film production will spend millions of dollars to make a film like this historically accurate in the way it looks, in EVERY WAY, except for having a lead appear with GORGEOUSLY MANSCAPED facial hair? Did Moses really own a Gillette Pro-Glide Grooming set? Or can we not tell our actors now that they need to shave something off or grow something out? Is someone afraid of hurting an actor's feelings? Russell Crowe in "Les Mis" with the goatee instead of muttonchops comes

Is someone afraid of hurting an actor's feelings? Russell Crowe in "Les Mis" with the goatee instead of muttonchops comes to mind. Also Michael Pena in the upcoming "Fury" with a goat that NO ONE in WW2 would have been wearing.

Bring it on! Now that I think about it, a Ridley Scott Biblical epic has been a long time coming. The title sounds lije it's a sequel to something, though.

Just like most of Ridley Scott's films. Hopefully the final product is as good.
