Photos: Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods & Kings”

Whilst one blurry photo scored a release a few months back, EW has now posted a bunch of new stills from Ridley Scott’s upcoming biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings” due for release this December.

The new photos show a first look at Joel Edgerton as the Pharaoh Ramses and Sigourney Weaver as his mother Tuya, along with new shots of Christian Bale as Moses and Scott himself at work.

Bale says the film has no intention of competing with Charlton Heston in “The Ten Commandments,” the film will have a very different tone and cover partly different material:

“Charlton Heston does Charlton Heston better than anyone. But the biblical account of Moses is extraordinary, and there was lots of room for us to go to places that [Charlton Heston’s movie] The Ten Commandments never dreamed of going. [There are] No fake beards. There’s nothing mild about the Exodus or Moses.”
