The first full-length trailer for Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings has been released.

The first full-length trailer for Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” has been released.  The trailer is to the point and holds nothing back about Scott’s planned adaptation of Moses’ story.  As we have come to expect from Scott, the film appears, from the trailer, to rely mostly on action and visual effects to draw in viewers. Watch the trailer below and tell us your thoughts!

 

Scott has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Director three times for “Thelma and Louise,” “Gladiator,” and “Black Hawk Down,” but a win still eludes him.  His trend for the past decade has led him to direct many movies that are very good but not quite Oscar worthy, and it looks as if “Exodus” will have him continuing in a similar fashion.  The film certainly appears entertaining and is studded with top-notch stars, including Christian Bale, Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul, and Sigourney Weaver, but overcoming the biblical theme has historically been difficult for many movies.  The film will certainly exclude movie-goers simply due to its controversial nature, but I have faith that regardless of the challenges Scott faces, he will deliver the most thrilling version of a biblical story we have seen yet.
