First Trailer for "Exodus: Gods and Kings!" See Christian Bale as Moses! 

Finally, the first trailer for Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is here, and boy oh boy, it promises to be epic! Like Cecil B. DeMille epic! Like a gargantuan "Gladiator!"

Take a look at the Red Sea parting! Listen to the cover of Simple Minds' "Belfast Child!" It's all glorious!

The film brings back to mind Darren Aronofsky's "Noah," but then again, did anyone see the movie? Hopefully, "Exodus" will not suffer the same fate so have faith all ye heathen!

In this adaptation, Christian Bale stars as Moses who dukes it out with Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton barely recognizable) so he can free the slaves and escape Egypt's plagues. So "Ten Commandments" here we come! But, according to Bale, there will be shocking stuff so Scott and company may be a bit liberal in adding or subtracting passages from the bible. Yup, just like "Noah."

I wonder how they will explain the parting of the Red Sea? Environment aka Global Warming perhaps?

Regardless, I still can't wait to see the movie when it opens in theaters on December 12, just in time for Oscar consideration!

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" also stars Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver.
