Trailer Review: Gods and Kings
Bring on the Hollywood adaptations! Director Ridley Scott has released his trailer for the movie, Exodus: Gods and Kings, which is reportedly coming out on December 12. Starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton in the lead male roles, the film promises to be action-packed and exciting, though most Christians are just hoping that Hollywood will redeem themselves for the, quite frankly, disappointing Noah adaptation.
The trailer, full of epically haunting and beautiful music, and some rather disturbing images, makes the movie look more like a “Moses Rises Up and Defeats the Evil Egyptians,” film than an adaption of a Bible story. However, it also promises a certain kind of grandeur that only one of the most incredible and fantastical real-life stories ever told deserves.
We can only stand by and hope that they produce a movie worthy of this stunning moment in history.
