Moses and Ramses Face Off in Official Trailer for Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus’ (VIDEO)
A new trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming film Exodus: Gods and Kings, released on Wednesday, shows the action-packed biblical story of Moses as he liberates the Israelites from slavery.
“I came to tell you that something is coming that is far beyond you and I. This is about Egypt’s survival, do you understand?” Christian Bale as Moses tells Joel Edgerton as Ramses in the clip. “Who has been telling you this?” replies Ramses. “God,” answers Moses.
The 20th Century Fox action drama tells the story of the Israelite leader who defied the Pharaoh Ramses by freeing 600,000 Hebrew slaves and leading them out of Egypt.
The trailer shows Moses learning through divine prophecy of his mission to be a leader and free the Israelites, and his battle against Pharaoh to make it happen. There are also scenes showing the ten plagues that struck Egypt when Pharaoh refused to free the Israelites from slavery, including giant crocodiles swallowing people, locusts swarming the land, and a bedroom full of frogs. The clip ends with the crossing of the Red Sea as Moses and his people are chased by an army of Egyptians.
“When men ruled as gods, one was chosen to change the world,” the trailer’s tagline reads.
The film’s cast includes Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley. Exodus: Gods and Kings hits theaters Dec. 12, 2014.
