Christian Bale

While Darren Aronofsky’s Noah has been getting more press, it isn’t 2014’s only Biblical epic being helmed by a prestige director—Ridley Scott has a film about the life of Moses, called Exodus, also set for release, starring Christian Bale as the beloved religious figure.

Now, while we could argue that Bale, despite his ability to seemingly shape-shift to any and all body types, doesn’t exactly resemble an Egyptian man, hey, neither did Charlton Heston.  And while the film isn’t set for a release until December of 2014, Empire was kind enough to give the world a sneak peek with this new picture:

The film, which tells the tale of the exodus of the Jews that Moses led from Egypt, is set for a December 12, 2014 release date.  In addition to Christian Bale, the film has a solid acting pedigree—Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, and Ben Kingsly all co-star in the Biblical epic.

What do you think of the image?
