With famed director Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” set to hit theaters December 12, 20th Century Fox has released a new extended trailer offering a deeper lens into the fast-paced, action-packed storyline viewers can expect from the biblical epic.
The film, which comes in the midst of what many film critics are calling “the year of the Bible,” tackles Old Testament events surrounding Moses, a prophet and religious leader credited by many for writing the Torah, also known as the Pentateuch — the first five books of the Bible.
According to an official description of “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the feature film will focus on “one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire,” while delving into many of the well-known, biblical stories that have been explored for centuries.
“Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 400,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues,” the description continues.
