Last night I drove down to Fox to attend a special preview of footage from director Ridley Scott‘s upcoming biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings. While I can’t really offer any opinions on the film since what we saw was both incomplete and a relatively small snippet (around 30 minutes) of the overall experience, I will say that this film looks massive and that they got an impressive amount of ground covered in their relatively brief (for a movie of this scale) 72 day production. The trailer that hit this morning covers some of this ground, but there’s a lot more that you’re not seeing.
Scott’s epic stars Christian Bale – who was there to answer a few questions – as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Rhamses. Hit the jump to check out our Exodus: Gods and Kings footage preview. The film also stars Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver. Exodus: Gods and Kings opens December 5, 2014.
