Wow. These are Awful. I mean just look at the poster above. Awkward poses. Black with gold detail. Over the top makeup. These seriously look like the ads you see when you’re flipping through the first million pages of an issue of Vanity Fair looking for some actual content. That’s not a good thing, in case I wasn’t clear.
Setting aside, for now, the issue of Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton (English and Australian, respectively) being cast to play characters who in all likelihood weren’t white, they just look terrible. Also, I dunno if it’s the lack of hair, the makeup, or what, but I’ve seen several images of Joel Edgerton in this movie and didn’t recognize him until someone pointed out that it was him to me. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but there it is. Hit the jump for two more posters.
Just… wow. These are awesome. You can see what they’re going for with the dramatic lighting and highlighting all the gold, but they just don’t look good. They look tacky as hell.
Apparently there is a trailer coming soon for this (today maybe) as well. Will update with that when we can.
Exodus: Gods and Kings is out 12 December.
