After Batman, Christian Bale plays Moses in EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS (Opens December 5 in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D)


One man’s destiny to rule an empire is about to be challenged by a man destined to defy it in Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” starring Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Ramses. The film’s intrigue, scale, scope, adventurer and vivid characters provide a unique theatrical event.  The Exodus from Egypt is the original and definitive heroic saga.  It's also a powerful and personal story rich with emotion, rivalry and betrayal and an undying quest for freedom.

Notes Scott: “Moses’ life is one of the greatest adventures and spiritual quests of all time.”  From its opening battle where 15,000 Egyptian soldiers attack a Hittite encampment, to the towering structures, a terrifying series of plagues, and the parting of the Red Sea, Scott brings his signature vision to one of our most cherished and important stories.
