I can’t watch help but watch these trailers for Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings without thinking about all of the other times I’ve seen this story played out on film. The Ten Commandments, The Prince of Egypt, that one episode of The Simpsons, but Exodus at least looks big, hollywood-y, and white enough to stand out. Christian Bale’s Moses approach seems to be more hands on and actiony to work into something, at the very least, cool looking.
If not, at least the plagues’ll look good. Exodus: Gods and Kings hits theaters December 5th.
