Christian Bale stars as Moses in first images from Exodus: Gods And Kings

The first images have arrived online from Biblical epic Exodus: Gods And Kings , featuring Christian Bale as a particularly badass version of Moses.

Directed by Ridley Scott, the new film follows the story of Moses as he attempts to deliver his people from the tyranny of Joel Edgerton's Pharoah Ramses.

These new images give us a good look at Bale's all-action moses, while there's also a glimpse of a strangely feminine-looking Edgerton as his regal nemesis.

Bale himself has also taken time to give a quick word on Moses, describing him as "one of the most fascinating characters that I’ve ever studied… I think Achilles is described as the most passionate man alive but I think Moses would give him a very good run for his money."

Directed by Scott and co-starring Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver, Exodus: Gods And Kings will open in the UK on 26 December 2014.
