First Image from Ridley Scott’s EXODUS Starring Christian Bale as Moses

Ridley Scott loves hopping between genres.  In the past five years alone, he went from a spy thriller (Body of Lies) to a medieval action movie (Robin Hood) to a sci-fi flick (Prometheus) to nihilistic drama (The Counselor) and now he’s going to a biblical epic with Exodus.  Adapted from some book called “The Bible”, the story follows Moses (Christian Bale) trying to free his enslaved people from their ancient Egyptian rulers.  The first image shows us Moses in his pampered days as an adopted member of the royal family, but it doesn’t really tell us much about the film as a whole.  The movie will certainly be big, but I’m wondering how Scott plans to give it a fresh angle, or if this is just going to come off as Cecil B. DeMille‘s The Ten Commandments with a 21st-century visual effects polish.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  The film also stars Joel Edgerton, Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, and Sigourney WeaverExodus opens December 5, 2014.
