This time… it’s biblical!
So Ridley Scott is back in stonking great epic territory with a film that brings Prometheus/Blade Runner levels of sweeping vastness with a Gladiator-esque sand soaked backdrop.
The story tells the classic tale of Moses demanding the Pharaoh Ramses to free the slaves (“Let my people goooooo!”), which of course leads to plagues and giant waves and lots of bloody scraps.
There is a great sense of scale to the trailer, with Scott’s use of enormous practical sets giving a great old school epic feel to the clip. Although saying that there’s also a bucket load of CGI; something for everyone so they say…
Exodus: Gods and Kings is out on Boxing Day, so don’t forget your foil wrapped turkey and stuffing sandwiches!
