“I felt there was a beauty to the massive scale of [the material]… You’re working with at least 700 crew plus the 4,000 extras. And of course the armies will be expanded exponentially: 4,000 will be tiled and grown into 20,000.”
Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton star as Moses and Ramses. Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver. Exodus: Gods and Kings opens December 5, 2014. Watch the Exodus: Gods and Kings featurette after the break.
From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. 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 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
