Filmed in 3D, Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” tells the story of Moses, abandoned by a desperate mother as a baby after the Egyptian rulers order the murder of all boys born to slaves, he is found in the bulrushes by the Pharaoh’s daughter and raised in the royal household, where he grows up alongside Ramses, the future monarch.
As a man, Moses has a vision and turns his back on his privileged life and leads his people, the Israelites, from enslavement. Scott’s film will feature ground-breaking special effects, including the plagues visited upon Egypt and the parting of the Red Sea.
Scott has recruited an all-star cast to bring his retelling of the story of “Exodus: Gods & Kings” to the big screen. Bale plays Moses, Sir Ben Kingsley is the scholar Nun, Sigourney Weaver plays Ramses’ mother, Queen Tuya and Joel Edgerton plays Ramses.
Moses’ journey, one of the greatest stories ever told leaps from the pages of the most revered book to the big screen when “Exodus: Gods and Kings” opens on December 5 in cinemas across the Philippines from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
