It’s a new year, which means a new year of trends. One new trend in cinema in particular seems to be the biblical epic. Not only is Darren Aronofsky’s Noah starring Russell Crowe arriving in March, but Ridley Scott is also releasing his biblical epic titled Exodus next December.
While we’ve already seen a CGI-heavy trailer for Noah, we haven’t seen anything for Exodus until recently as the first image of Oscar-winning actor Christian Bale as Moses has arrived online (courtesy of Empire).
The film follows the story of Moses, abandoned as a baby and adopted by Egyptian royalty, only to hear the voice of God as he grows older and lead the Israelite slaves into the promised land. Along with Bale, Exodus stars Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, and Ben Kingsley.
Exodus will arrive in theaters on December 12th, 2014.
