Director Ridley ScottYear 2014Genre(s) Action, Adventure
Moses and the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses grew up together as brothers after the former was saved from drowing in the Nile. However, Moses has not forgotten the reason why he was cast into the river; all newborn Israelites were condemned to death by the past Pharaoh for fear of their growing numbers. Now he is enlisted by God to save the Israelites from their slavery at the hands of the Pharaoh's people, but to do so he must turn his back on his brother and friend. The Egyptians fight back as Moses defiantly leads the Israelites on an arduous journey across the desert, while God unleashes a series of horrific plagues and turns their Nile to blood. Egypt face new dangers as God decides that rules need to be laid down for Moses and his people.
'Exodus: Gods and Kings' is an intense interpretation of the Old Testament's Book of Exodus, which depicts Moses' encounter with the Burning Bush and his liberation of the Jewish slaves. It has been directed by Ridley Scott ('Alien', 'Blade Runner', 'Prometheus', 'Hannibal') and written by Academy Award winner Steven Zaillian ('American Gangster', 'Schindler's List'), and Bill Collage and Adam Cooper ('Tower Heist', 'Accepted'). It is scheduled to be released in UK cinemas on December 26th 2014.
