Alien, Blade Runner, and Gladiator director Ridley Scott is getting biblical in his latest movie Exodus: Gods and Kings, and to prove it, here’s the first trailer.
The film is a retelling of the tale of Moses, and sees Christian Bale play the ancient Jewish prophet tasked by his god to free his people from slavery at the hands of the Egyptians. His methods include plagues and murdering small children in their sleep, which is sure to look great thanks to Ridley Scott’s formidable visual talents. Along with Bale, the cast includes semi-divine players like Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, Joel Edgerton, and Jesus himself John Turturro.
Exodus: Gods and Kings will start its bid for Oscar gold when it lands in theatres on December 12.
