First Trailer For Exodus: Gods And Kings

Dejected Brazil fans pouring onto the streets after their team's excruciating World Cup exit wasn't the only exodus worth watching late last night.

Because you may just have spotted the first teaser for Ridley Scott's forthcoming biblical epic Exodus: Gods And Kings, starring Christian Bale as Moses, attempting to free the Israelites from Ancient Egypt. No walk in the picnic, obviously.

Our hero faces a stern test from brother Ramses - Joel Edgerton's bejewelled baddie of the piece desperate to keep hold of the slaves in order to build his impressive empire - while further top drawer support comes from Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver and, taking a break from playing his Xbox, Aaron Paul.

And if the cast isn't starry enough to prove biblical epics are big business right now, we're also given flashes of what’s to come when the plagues of Egypt are unleashed: colossal CGI disaster scenes involving locust, lots of running, and some alarmingly large waves which come crashing ashore.

Why it's enough to make Noah look like a storm in a teacup.

Exodus: Gods And Kings is in cinemas from 12 December
