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.
