20th Century Fox has released the first Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer for director Ridley Scott’s upcoming Biblical epic.  The film stars Christian Bale as Moses, focusing on the figure’s struggle to free his enslaved people from their ancient Egyptian rulers as Joel Edgerton fills the role of Ramses.  The trailer is, well, curious.  The eyeliner is very heavy, and it almost feels like there was no effort whatsoever put into making Bale and Edgerton look like they fit into the time period (or, you know, anything resembling Egyptians).  That said, the visuals are striking and Scott certainly appears to be going all-out with the whole “Biblical epic” moniker.  I have a feeling this movie might be pretty weird.

Hit the jump to watch the first Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer.  The film also stars Ben KingsleyAaron PaulJohn Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver.  Exodus: Gods and Kings opens December 5, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for Exodus: Gods and Kings:

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.

This Apple embed is the only official one available right now, but we’ll update the article as soon as Fox puts the trailer on YouTube.

    Hmm! Interesting…

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

    Cinematography looks beautiful – just like Kingdom of Heaven. I have high hopes but am reminded of Scott’s last film the Counselor – I just hope he’s back to his old form. Either way I’ll always have Legend!

    • AdeoAdversary

      Director’s Cut of Kingdom of Heaven is amazing, head and shoulders above the theatrical cut of the film and some of Ridley’s greatest work in my opinion. Hope he brings some of that magic to Exodus.

      • habb

        100 %. The DC is incredible.

        And this will be hopefully an epic take on that subject… cant wait
        But the actors lookin a little strange. Sigourney weaver especially in a biblical film. but we will see…

    • truth

      Prometheus and the Counselor lacked. Ridley has a great visual eye, but is terrible at picking scripts and judging stories.

  • Tomm

    “…it almost feels like there was no effort
    whatsoever put into making Bale and Edgerton look like they fit into the
    time period (or, you know, anything resembling Egyptians).”

    Huh? Sorry, Adam… but that’s a terribly stupid comment. Would you rather have them in brownface?

    • MITIOR

      Also where in the trailer did he get the “weird” vibe?? That’s what I call PREJUDICE. sheesh!

    • agent777

      Maybe different actors dipshit.

      • Tomm

        Why would you want different actors? Bale and Edgerton are both incredibly talented.

      • axalon

        There are incredibly talented Egyptian actors too.

      • Grayden

        While I’d say Scott didn’t have a bevy of well known actors in KoH, (Neeson, Bloom, and Irons were about as well known as anyone knew), he did at least cast the Arabic characters with Arabic actors. He could’ve gone that route in this film, but would a majority of people, in America, see a movie lead by unknown Egyptian actors? Even if it was a Ridley Scott film?

      • agent777

        Nothing ventured, nothing gained. It could work, it’s Moses, it’s the bible, and it’s the guy who did Gladiator. It’s worth a shoot at least. At least do something new; something interesting.

      • Gibster

        Is white America so racist that it cannot accept actors of color in biblical epics?? Certainly in the annuals of history people of color existed, we just don’t see them that much on the big screen is all. Oh we see one or two scattered about in period pieces, but according to Hollywood there doesn’t seem to be a period- or a place, a country or a culture where whites didn’t dominate. History is being re-written with every White-Washed “Epic” that comes out.

      • DEADP00L

        Omar Sharif is Egyptian.
        Tony Shaloub is Lebanese.
        Eva Green is half Iranian.

        The list goes on. Hollywood factually has arabic, turkish and Iranian actors they just refuse to hire them. There is a bias and prejudice when it comes to arabs, Iranians and Turks in Hollywood – always has been.

      • Frank

        Eva Green was hired by Scott in Kingdom of Heaven. Love her.

      • DEADP00L

        Yeah but she’s not FROM Iran, she’s a decedent. And Scott hired a good many arabic actors for Kingdom of Heaven so thats why I don’t see why he didn’t hire egyptian actors for this one.

      • Frank

        I’ll tell you – because Batman has more of a chance of selling tickets internationally, where people of color have earned less starring in Hollywood productions. It sucks, but it’s a historical fact. Not speculation, fact. Outside of Will Smith and Denzel, the interest from international parties – not domestic mind you -international, isn’t as strong. It all comes down to marketing. Whether Ridley is making the right choice or not artistically or historically, it’s clear he’s made his choice the way any business man would. It’s unfortunate, but it’s the process. His movies get made because he’s beholden to the almighty dollar, like anyone else trying to fund a movie of this scale. He just came off Prometheus with a remarkably diverse cast, so it’s clear he does pay some attention to diversity. But had he cast an Egyptian in the starring role, no one would fund it. If an Egyptian stud came around and was a big earner, things would change. On top of that, if you cast Batman as the lead, you certainly aren’t going to cast a black guy as the bad guy who persecuted Moses’ people. You’d get hit there too. It’s a situation no one can win, until more people of color stars break on an international scale. It’s happened somewhat. Not enough. I hope it does. I LOVE to see diversity. But I’m not going to condemn Scott over this decision.

      • DEADP00L

        Well how are they going to do that when Hollywood itself refuses to market them?

      • Frank

        No, you mistake me. It isn’t because Hollywood hasn’t tried in the past. It’s because people internationally don’t go to the movies starring these actors. It’s the culture of the consumer that dictates it. It stinks, I know. Not to diminish the actors cast in this. I would have appreciated more diversity. But while racism is present in Hollywood, it’s less present than ever before. On one hand, Hollywood are called racist, but on the other hand, they’re called “libtards” – full of liberal sentiments. I think Hollywood is filled with businessmen primarily, who need returns on their investments to continue their jobs. If international markets loved Egyptian actors, you would see an influx of Egyptians cast. International markets and domestic markets responded to Australian actors and look what happened – the casting of Australians became huge. Huge! Are Australians more talented than American actors? I can’t answer that. It’s business, that is all. But in regards to solutions, I think it’s critical that content makers look outside of the traditional system and utilize all of the diverse methods of distribution that are emerging with new media. It’s so new, but hopefully we’ll start seeing great content coming from people of color that will break down those walls. Once Hollywood starts seeing dollars generated, they’ll be more inclined to invest their money that way. Sorry for the big long-winded response. Here’s to hoping.

      • Thomas R

        And incredibly of the wrong race.

      • Tomm

        I’ve never understood this line of reasoning. Russell Crowe isn’t Hispano-Roman… but people didn’t complain when he played Maximus Meridius. Or, hell… when you go see a school play, does it perturb you that much when they switch up the races of the roles? The race of the actor is a non-issue. It’s about the character.

      • agent777

        I think that casting authentic actors enriches the acting pool. Ken Watanabe was discovered because they wanted actual Japanese actors for Last Samurai. Bela Lugosi is of the same stock as Vlad the Impaler and he happens to also be the definitive Dracula.

        Also a lot of people have worked hard to break down these barriers and there is a lot of smashing left to do.

      • Tomm

        I can agree with your points. However, a talented actor is a talented actor. Lugosi is undoubtedly Dracula (though Christopher Lee makes a strong case for himself), but his race comes second to his performance. Personally, I don’t believe that an actor needs the same genetic makeup that source material might dictate… and neither does Scorcese, DeMille, or Buñuel, to name a few.

      • agent777

        No, but it helps often. It just makes things more interesting. Like Scott casting Dikimon Hounsou in Gladiator. More interesting a memorable than if he had cast Will Smith or Sam Jackson, no? I want a movie to take me to different places with different people.

        While the talent it there, it can still lead to a great character coming of as boring or idiotic. Keeanu Reeves in Dracula, it doesn;t have to be about race. There is a case where you have a whole cast full of actors doing British (or Transylvanian) accents, and a Texan character with a accent… and Keanu Reeves being himself. That casting is still a joke.

      • Thomas R

        It is about the characters. But to utlise white actors in a non-white role is still blatant racism. If they cast a white actor to play, say, Martin Luther King, people would find it racist. But apparently people are just fine with white actors “filling in” for Middle Eastern and Egyptian characters.

      • Tomm

        Casting a white actor as Martin Luther King would be pretty damn interesting actually… but that’s an entirely different conversation. MLK’s entire experience revolved around African-American identity and perception (both internal and external). Here, the story doesn’t seem to focus on race… but rather brotherhood. Again, it’s about the character, not the color of the actor’s skin. Christian Bale can be Moses for the same reasons that Idris Elba can be Heimdall. It’s called artistic license… and it’s one of the most exciting things on the planet.

      • Thomas R

        No, it’s called racism and it’s one of the worst things on the planet. But hey, using your logic, it would be ok to cast Zac Efron as Bruce Lee, Tom Cruise as President Obama, Meryl Streep as Oprah and Liam Neeson as Nelson Mandela.

      • Tomm

        Tell me… why would that be racism? What would be suggesting any form of inferiority in regards to any race? All I’m saying is that casting should be fluid in regards to race. You’re taking it to extremes, but extremes are often interesting places.

      • Thomas R

        It suggests racial inferiority because there is no justifiable reason to cast white actors in a non-white role. There are no doubt thousands of non-white actors who would be race appropriate for roles such as these but Hollywood has chosen not to cast such actors in order to uphold the idea that white people prefer to watch white actors. And unfortunately, it’s true. White people do tend to prefer to watch white actors because we still live in an inherently racist society. But instead of using it’s power and influence to break down those racial barriers, Hollywood upholds them by maintaining an Anglo Saxon dominanated film industry.

        You seem to be of the impression that films such as this one are trying to “say something” by casting white actors in non-white roles. They aren’t. The only thing that these films imply is that you can’t have a major Hollywood film that features a non-white cast.

        And how am I taking it to extremes? I’m giving examples of what kind of casting could be made using your viewpoint. Because according to what you’ve said it wouldn’t at all be racist to cast someone like Zac Efron to play Bruce Lee in a biopic or Liam Neeson as Nelson Mandela (in films with no ironic subtext).

        If you truly believe in what your saying, that it is perfectly fine to cast white actors in non-white roles (again, in films where such casting isn’t intent on making an ironic statement within the story but is simply a matter of casting white people because that’s what white audiences want to see), then you are apart of the problem. That problem being racism in Hollywood cinema. It’s a major issue, it’s incredibly offensive and it needs to be dealt with. And unfortunately, films like this just add to the problem.

      • Red

        Man shut the hell up with your politically correct bullshit. You people are actually worse than racists, always stirring up bullshit. It’s just a movie,a fantasy grow up will’ya!

      • Thomas R

        First of all, throwing out insults instead of making an actual arguement makes your opinion invalid. Second, it sure as hell does matter. Ever hear of white supremacy? That’s essentially what Hollywood has been about since the beginning. It’s insulting that they believe white actors to be a better fit for non-white roles than non-white actors. And no it’s not just a fantasy movie, it’s what that movie represents. It represents an acceptance on the part of both the filmmakers and the people who go to see this film that white people are better at acting non-white roles than non-white people are.

      • Red

        Get a life why don’t you! We all go to the movies to be entertained not to give us more reasons to hate one another. All I see is characters in a movie not black, white or asian.

      • the king of comedy

        Wow those expamples you pointed out were kind of extreme, Obama, Oprah and Nelson Mandela are persons whose race defined much of their trayectory, their race played an important role in their lifes, but for example the human torch in the next fantastic four movies is a white character but being white or black doesn`t change his personalty, his trayectory or how other people see him, when people think of Moses they think of a good man chosen by God to free his people from slavery, that`s who he was, while when they think of obama they think of him being the first african american president of the United States.

      • DEADP00L

      • agent777

        Lol, yeah Idris Elba’s monumental turn as Heimdall… Would you maybe agree that Elba would be better suited to a different role in the Marvel U? Like, a main charcter and not a fifth stringer?

        I don;t think it’s artistic license, it’s called hack work.

      • agent777

        Personally there doesn’t need to be another Moses movie. If one is made, the only thing that could tempt me in would be casting authentic actors. I’m a Eqypt buff so I have neither time no patience for this Moses twaddle, but it would be unique to see proper casting. But that’s just me.

        Scott did it with Saladin in Kingdom of Heaven and it was a great touch. I mean come on… not everyone in the celluloid past needs to be British.

      • DEADP00L

        As a fellow Egypt Buff I wholeheartedly agree. he cast of Kingdom of heaven getting Saladin to be played by a legendary Syrian actor gave it a touch nothing in Hollywood would be able to accomplish.

      • saywut

        Agreed. Maybe, they should have hired the casting director from the FX show, Tyrant.

    • Thomas R

      They may not have brown face but they certainly have “bronze” face. Hollywood and racism, everyone!

    • Merlin235

      They could have hired Egyptian actors. Just a thought.

  • MITIOR

    Movie looks epic and beautiful. Based on the trailer I think they’re really going with the brothers torn apart story which is very good in my opinion. Joel and Bale are top notch actors and Sigourney looks beautiful as a Queen.

  • Doug_101

    Looks suitably epic. Not sure what Simple Minds’ “Belfast Child” has to do with it, but okay.

    • Grayden

      It’s a beautifully, haunting rendition either way.

      • awer

        a haunting one.

    The visuals look great, just hope this doesn’t turn out to be simply the live-action version of Prince of Egypt; I hope Ridley Scott can put his own stamp on things.

    Just so everybody knows for the historical record, none of Ramses children die in infancy or as children. I really hope they avoid the myth that surrounds Moses and approach this in a new and refreshing take – he as a mortal man. that would be something. Yes most of us know that Egypt is not white specifically in this time period, and I’m not saying let it pass, by all means share your concerns – but lets just cool off and give Scott the BOTD.

    Just some rational facts for those of you who can’t stand religious myth in history

    The Nile to this day runs red seasonally – it’s just algae.
    The locus fly into Egypt seasonally from Saudi Arabia and are actually delicious and a delicacy in Egypt and Israel.

    • The Walking Cuban

      Not arguing. Merely presenting the position I hold in what I hope is a friendly fashion. Rameses was not the pharaoh of the exodus. Thutmoses III was. Archaeologists use rameses fr the 1200′s bc and the Jericho excavation (1400s bc) to disprove the bible. But see, the 1200′s ain’t got nothin to do with it. The timeline of the bible places the exodus at 1446 and Joshua and Israel’s crossing of the Jordan into Canaan at 1406. The movie will be mythos, Scott’s story, whether it has the crossing of the Red Sea or not. Which happened. Poor Egyptians.

      • DEADP00L

        Oh I know that but each and every time I try to explain you literally have to go into akhenaten to establish when, how and why the entire one god idea even came about. I just didnt want to do that here. I love the discussion of it but we’d kind of take over the comments if we just discussed that in it’s purest form.

      • The Walking Cuban

        I feelz ya, but the only thing Moses and Akhenaten had in common was believing in one God. That’s it. Job was apparently not a Hebrew yet believed in one God, the same God that flooded the earth. Also, my above comment didn’t show entirely, I fixed it.

      • DEADP00L

        I can’t see your comment it still on ‘But see. the 12′ – hang on let me try and refresh my browser.

      • The Walking Cuban

        Ok

      • DEADP00L

        Oh BOOYA you touched on it right on target dude! Nice to see somebody else is into the historical record on this site.

        In all honesty I do not know why Hollywood won’t just fix the mythos. It’s not as if portraying it would be harder.

        I am fascinated with Akhenaten because of the one God link. Moses might actually be a political banner for that time period referring TO the people of Akhenaten. If we want to look at purely from an objective perspective there is lot of evidence that Moses and Akhenaten share a lot of the mythos. For example Akhenaten went to war against the priests of Egypt trying to free the people from their tyrannical indoctrination and influence, went into exile into the desert where on a hill and during the sun rise the aten was revealed to him. The more you look at the two the more they start to look similar.

        Only one we can prove existed and the other all we have are religious text.

        See I told you this would happen -_-*

      • The Walking Cuban

        People got it backwards, like Akhenaten influenced Moses, or WAS Moses. Thing is amenhotep IV, who changed his name to Akhenaten, son of Aten (his one god) who was after tutmoses III and the exodus, seems to have actually seen what happened to the Egyptians and THEN used it as a political device. What more motivation would the dejected Egyptians need to follow one god? But they had nothing at all aside from that to tie them to the teachings of the Pentateuch.

        I too like history

      • DEADP00L

        Well they are all of them compelling and all theories with actual evidence that we all have to interpret mainly because everything in archeology is so insanely slow these days. Im still stuck on Nefertiti’s linage and whether or not she was even tuts mother. Taking note her own involvement with the entire affair of the aten and subsequent restoration of the preisthood.

      • The Walking Cuban

        Thing is, I believe that with the bible, we have a historical account unrivaled in it’s accuracy. No religion, race, creed, none of that, from antiquity, can even compare. The supernatural occurrences in it prompt some to disprove it with history and archaeology. But what happens when the history and archaeology match? See, obviously, I believe. Someone’ll say, “well then that makes it easier for you to jump to conclusions”. But I didn’t. I looked at timelines. Most “christians” don’t use common sense or logic. But I do. We all should.

      • DEADP00L

        You’re trying to get irrational people who use an ancient text to live their lives and pass judgment on others who do not, to become rational- it’ a losing battle. I mean these types of people REFUSE to even think outside their indoctrinated circles. For crying out loud they are cannibals by ceremony and pegans on celebrations, and they want to impose those practices into their laws.

        Forget trying to even talk about pre bible history to them.

      • The Walking Cuban

        Some of them, yeah. The ones that have taught me, no. They didn’t so much teach me what I know as much as teach me HOW to know. How to discern.
        The pagan rituals I have nothing to do with. Sure, Santa, presents, all that’s fine. Easter eggs, whatever. No religion necessary, that’s tradition. That stuff ain’t even biblical. As for communion, Catholics say it IS the blood of Christ and it IS the body if Christ. However, Christ instituted such sittin right there with the disciples. Therefore, his body and blood were intact. It’s representative, not equal to. He said do it so we do it.
        The bible has no denominations or Catholic Church or Mormonism or what have you. They think they’re Christians but they practice religions not found in the old or New Testaments. Using logic we have narrowed the gospel down to exactly that. The gospel. New Testament Christianity.

      Lest I forget to address the red algae and the locusts.

      First the locusts. God used wind to bring them and to drive them away. He used natural means, aside from Moses preaching it and it coming to pass. Not so the other plagues:

      Red algae is indeed found in the Red Sea, hence the name. But it was the nile river that turned into blood. Haematococcus pluvialis and Euglena sanguinea turn red in seas, but green, GREEN, in turgid water. Rivers don’t allow for the red to happen. In over 100s of year of research, scientists have not found either species in the 400 species of algae in the Nile, nor even in the 1,000 species in east Africa. I don’t mean to sound blunt, but the Red Sea is not the nile river. Plus, the fish died from the water being turned into blood, but neither of the above species are toxic and both, BOTH, are used in, get this: fish food.

      • DEADP00L

        I just said it was THE NILE that turns red each season – it does. I was there to see it a year ago. You’re telling me what I saw with my own eyes didn’t happen? I suggest going to Egypt. The wind…*sigh* I’m sorry but you’ve lost the plot completely. I mean you are literally using baby logic. We also had locus that fly in from Saudi Arabia tooand we ate them – they have been doing so for hundreds f thousands of years. The mirgrate with the wind current when the season change. The fish dying happen a lot too when the alge swam through the nile a lot of the fish died and the fish were uneatable. I mean all you have to do is search hebrew news outlets and you’ll see for yourself.

        I do not condone religion at all, your logic is why I simply refuse now.

        Sorry I made it sound like you said Red Sea. Anyway, just cuz an east wind moved THOSE locusts don’t mean it moved the one you saw. And was the river blood when you went there? No it was red. In the bible, it’s not limited to the river.

        Exodus 7:19 (KJV) 19 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and [that] there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in [vessels of] wood, and in [vessels of] stone.

        Exodus 10:13 (KJV) 13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all [that] night; [and] when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.

        I ain’t trying to be disrespectful, so as long as you wanna continue we’ll continue, but I don’t wanna PLAGUE ya. Sorry.

    Doesn’t really look like it’s offering anything new. Saw all that in The Ten Commandments and other Golden Age epics. That said, I’m still cautiously optimistic.

    • Red

      Like what would you want new? The story’s been the same for more than 2000 years.

    I dunno. I’m yet to be convinced. Bale, while a solid-to-great actor, feels out of place here; he looks neither Hebrew nor Egyptian. And honestly Edgerton is a weird choice too. The production design looks great, of course, but that was true of Ridley’s Robin Hood, which was well-acted but sort of muddled/muted thematically.

    Certainly the white-washed casting doesn’t help, but…this just seems kind of generic to me. I’m not really sure why this is being made. I recall Robin Hood, which turned the Robin Hood legend into a pretty generic gritty action film. This looks a little less faux-gritty, but it doesn’t so far seem to have much of a unique character.

    I actually got excited watching this trailer. Also Ridley’s got a good track on historical dramas (Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven) so this might end up being really good.

    If it’s half as good as Prince of Egypt it’ll be great.

    If I didn’t know any better, I would believe 100% that absurd looking poster was fan-made. In fact, no, I’m still not sure…

    What’s the name of the song played in the trailer?

    Those crying racism are assuming they didn’t audition any black, Egyptian, or middle eastern actors for the roles. How do we know Scott didn’t audition some and they were terrible? You all also assume that the decision to hire these actors is motivated by race which I think is misguided. Hollywood is about money, plain and simple. People assume that motives are more nefarious than they truly are, greed is what motivates more than racism. This is a big business and unfortunately Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, and Sigourney Weaver will bring in more money individually than all of the top actors in Egypt or the ME combined. They want this movie to make money above all else.

    And on a political note, as Gary Oldman pointed out recently, the Jews run Hollywood not the whites. If you truly believe racism is what’s behind these casting choices then I would say Gaza had more to do with it than 9/11.

      Joel Edgerton will bring in the money? Bale and Weaver maybe, but Edgerton?

    Fucking disgusting. Scott is an old, white racist who hasn’t made a decent film since Gladiator. What a prick.
