New EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS Posters and Images Place Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton in Ancient Egypt

Ahead of the trailer debut later today, 20th Century Fox has released the first Exodus: Gods and Kings posters as well as some new high-resolution images from director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic.  The film finds Christian Bale filling the role of Moses while Joel Edgerton (Warrior) plays Ramses, and it looks to be a rather curious picture.  The Australia-born Edgerton isn’t exactly the epitome of an ancient Egyptian, and the eclectic cast is filled out by the likes of Aaron Paul, Sir Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver.  We’ll have a much better idea of what to expect once the trailer hits, but for now these posters and images are certainly tantalizing.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new Exodus: Gods and Kings posters and images, and check back later to watch the trailer.  The film opens in theaters on December 5th.

    Really hope this is a return to form for Ridley Scott after some pretty mediocre efforts over the last couple of years. I’ll watch anything with Christian Bale in it, so I’m really looking forward to this. Looks kinda like Gladiator in Egypt which isn’t a bad thing at all

      Gladiator in Egypt? what…?

    His look reminds me of Varys in Game of Thrones.

    Why isn’t Ridley Scott mentioned anywhere on these posters… And why is no one making a big deal about how white actors are playing Egyptians? I don’t personally care but there’s always an outcry whenever that happens.

      Well I think Mixed Race Rich Kid from NYC got banned.

        Wait, did he really?* I was wondering why I hadn’t seen him around here lately.

        *Not a rhetorical question

      I think it’s too late to fix. People have just gotten used to the fact that white people dominate and screw up everything. Like the United States. =)

    Joel Edgerton is doing his best Arnold Vosloo.

    Just watched the director’s cut of Kingdom of Heaven. I really hope Scott can one up himself as it’s a beautiful film but doesn’t convey a lot of emotional weight from his leads. I think Bale will deliver.

    • Boogaloo

      Love the directors cut of Kingdom of Heaven, especially considering the theatrical release was borderline unwatchable.

      Keep in mind we’re talking about Christian Bale here, he’s got a whole lot more range than Orlando Bloom.

      • computerbenefit

        Comparing Orlando Bloom to Christian Bale is like comparing an iphone to a 90′s handphone. They’re in completely different leagues.

      • Boogaloo

        That’s what I was trying to imply without trying to rag on Orlando Bloom too hard, cause you know, he reads this shit and I’m not about bullying.

      • computerbenefit

        When I first wrote that, for some reason it just seemed completely ‘polite’ to me but now that you point it out, you are right, it does come off as bully-ish. But that wasn’t really my intention. It’s just sometimes, there are no other ways to articulate your thoughts other than just say what’s on your mouth regardless of whether it hurts somebody or not. And wait, he reads this stuff?

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        Agreed that the director’s cut is a great film, a much better improvement over the theatrical cut, and that Bale is a much better actor than Bloom. I just hope he doesn’t go for his style over substance approach. I tried watching The Counselor and honestly lost interest at 45 min into it. Just unbearable and that was with an amazing cast and screenwriter.

      Kingdom of Heaven is about a overlooked period of history (when it comes to film at least) and was surprisingly true to life. But this is Exodus, it’s been done before and is disproven as an actual event. With all the historical writings of the ancient Egyptians, with all the epic history they have, it’s pretty sad we are back to the myth of Egyptians keeping Jewish slaves.

      I feel this is more for money, unlike Kingdom which felt like a passion project, in all the best ways.

      • Frost

        It was “disproven” by the Egyptian government who is insistant that the ancient Egyptians never had slaves, destroys any possible evidence of Hebrew Slaves, and denys any archeologists entry to the country if their intent is to research Exodus. It may of happened, it may not of, but the government is certainly involved in some sort of coverup.

      • DEADP00L

        um…thats not even remotely true. Where did you hear that from? I only ask because my class did nothing but study exodus when we were exchanged there. We worked with Jewish archeologists from Egypt and Germany for 6 months. Nothing was off limits and we had access to most of the antiquities back lots which were full of Hebrew tablet correspondents. They not only name the workers but a lot of the text were Ethiopian in origin. To this day some of the friends I made there say they are still trying to get the Ethiopian government to open expeditions so they can trace Jewish lineages from Ethiopia – and are blocked by the Israeli government. Same thing with the Lebanese when it comes to their antiquities of the Phoenician ancestors, Israel gets in the way. For example they won’t let archeologists dive into the sea to bring back Phoenician ships, statues, relics and potteries – in Lebanese waters. Hell they even kept Robert Ballard from doing it after HE was the one to make the discovery.

        If you know something I don’t please share because this is the first time I have ever heard of this.

      Finally someone who understands the DC of Kingdom of Heaven is not some perfect masterpiece. It’s better than the Theatrical but it’s still flawed, meandering, and overlong. Good, but not great, let alone a masterpiece.

    Worst PS I have EVER seen for professional posters. And if the sphinx is featured in this movie then I am done. I can only take so many blatant historical inaccuracies before I throw in the towel.

    • Brian James

      Did you just use the word History in regards to this mythology? LOL

      • DEADP00L

        Egypt is a real place and so is the Sphinx. Whether or not Moses did exist I can’t say. Much like I can’t say Jesus was real either. BUT Ramses body is factually on display and so are his grown children and grandfather. So while Ramses did exist it is fair to say that maybe Moses had too – and that he was from Ethopia. There is no evidence in terms of antiquities of his existing in the royal household THAT I KNOW OF – but that particular time was real and were in that time period. …Just not the Sphinx and some of the Pyramids.

      • Brian James

        Fair enough!

  • smellyfishfingers

    These pictures dont look great but its ridley scott so ill hold faith…why is edgertons shaved hair changing in length in all the pictures though?

  • Josh King

    I love Bale and I feel the movie will be great but that look doesn’t look very “Moses” period.. Looks like the same look from his last movie

  • Roy J

    Hoping for another Gladiator….don’t care if the story has been done or cliched, but if Scott can present the movie the way he did Gladiator with emotion and thrills, I’ll be happy. Excited for the trailer.

  • bob

    i like the horse on the last pic, he seems to tell us to avoid this syfy reboot of the 10 commandments

  • Mike Sloan

    playing with the big boys now

    • David Ortiz

      Now that you’re bringing it up, the tagline “Once brothers, now enemies” reminded me a bit of “The Prince of Egypt.” I understand that the original Biblical story did mention their brotherhood, and so on, but PoE played it a lot more than other adaptations.

  • MITIOR

    I just realized Jhon Tuturro is the guy with the open arms (Rameses senior) in between Joel and Christian Bale, his casting just reminded me of transformers :/
    Oh well it’s Ridley Scott, I know this will be a quality movie.

  • asdfasdf

    The white-washing is strong in this movie….

  • WhitePeopleEverywhere

    That is a LOT of white people in ancient Egypt.

  • history

    I’m not a historian but was Egypt all white people in those times.
