Entertainment Weekly and People recently posted exclusive photos from the set of the upcoming Hollywood Biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings. The movie, directed by Ridley Scott and staring Christian Bale as Moses, hits theaters December 12, 2014.
The movie will also star Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver and Aaron Paul. Filmed throughout Spain and the U.K. in just 74 days, Exodus goes back to ancient Egypt with spectacular sets and costumes fit for a pharaoh. And though there was some digital assistance, "it all looks completely real," says director Scott, whose last sword-and-sandals blockbuster, Gladiator, won the Oscar for Best Picture in 2001. Edgerton, 40, who plays pharaoh-to-be Rhamses, tells PEOPLE. "It feels very rich, grand and epic. There's something very regal and austere and driven about it, and very human."
The movie has an estimated budget well north of $100 million.
