Hot on the heels of the terrible posters here’s the trailer for Ridley Scott’s Ridley Scott Epic Slow Burn Thinking Mans Biblical Action Movie.
So it’s a thing that’s happening, that’s for sure. I don’t quite know what it is but this trailer really doesn’t grab me. It’s like a tech demo: everything I see is gorgeous but there’s nothing there that really makes me want to invest in anything going on.
Maybe because it’s been done before? Maybe because it’s paced so slowly? Maybe because Joel Edgerton looks distractingly like Bruce Payne, an actor I’m not overly fond of?
Hopefully it’s good but given Scott’s track record recently (movie that look great but are kind of dull or bad mostly) I’m going to temper my expectations.
Exodus: Gods and Kings is out 12 December.
