20th Century Fox has released three clips and nearly 20 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings. The film is, of course, Scott’s take on the Bliblical story of Moses, with Christian Bale playing the former Egyptian prince and Joel Edgerton filling the role of the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses. If nothing else, the film certainly looks to be visually impressive, as Scott returns to the scale of his previous period epics like Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven.
Check out the new Exodus: Gods and Kings clips and behind-the-scenes footage after the jump. The film also stars John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley. Exodus: Gods and Kings opens in theaters in 3D and 2D on December 12th.
