Christian Bale 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Movie 2014 Releases First Epic Trailer, Watch Here
Christian Bale is starring in the new biblical movie Exodus: Gods and Kings. In the movie directed by Ridley Scott, Bale will play the large character of Moses in pre-Ten Commandment days, going up again Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton) to the slaves of his people. You can check out the first Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer here.
Exodus: Gods and Kings will also starr Sigourney Weaver, Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, and John Turturro. The movie is planned to release to theaters on Dec. 12th.
Moses was a pivotal figure in the Old Testament, standing up to Pharaoh Ramses to free 600,000 slaves, through 10 deadly plagues and leading his people in the desert out of Egypt while parting the Red Sea. "What I thought I knew about Moses I didn't really," director Scott says. "Either I wasn't paying attention in Sunday school or I had forgotten. I was knocked out by who he was and the basics of the story-it has to be one of the greatest adventures and spiritual experiences that could ever have been."
Christian Bale spoke with EW's Sara Vilkomerson sharing that he was not trying to duplicate Charlton Heston's famous role. "Charlton Heston does Charlton Heston better than anyone," he said. "But the biblical account of Moses is extraordinary, and there was lots of room for us to go to places that [Heston's movie] The Ten Commandments never dreamed of going."
Filming for the movie took place in Spain, in Almería, along the Mediterranean Sea, and Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands. "It has these stunning beaches," Bale says of the filming locations. "It looks like a Tyrannosaurus rex could come running around a corner."
