First look at Christian Bale in Exodus

31 December 2013

Let my publicity stills go!

Here’s our very first look (if you discount long-lens paparazzi shots - and we do) at Christian Bale in Ridley Scott’s forthcoming film Exodus.

The Biblical epic is a new take on the story of Moses, from the book in the Bible of the same name.

The former Batman will play Moses, the legendary religious figure who leads the Jewish people out of slavery and into the promised land, via a niftily parted Red Sea.

Also starring are Joel Edgerton as King Ramesses, Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul as Joshua, plus Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver and John Turtorro.

Principal photography has taken place in Almeria, Spain - home to many epic movies over the years, including Sergio Leone’s spaghetti westerns - as well as time in Fuerteventura and the UK.

With hundreds of millions of dollars and up to 4000 extras in certain scenes, expect a movie on a vast, Cecil B. DeMilleian scale.

Exodus is set to be released on 12th December, 2014.
