20th Century Fox has unveiled these new images from Exodus: Gods and Kings, ahead of its first trailer expected to premiere soon.

Director Ridley Scott‘s upcoming Biblical epic stars Christian Bale as the prophet and exodus-leader along with Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley.

Edgerton plays Egyptian pharaoh Ramses, Weaver and Turturro play his royal parents Tuya and Seti, Paul co-stars as a follower of Moses, and Kingsley rounds out the cast as a Hebrew scholar.

Latest period epic from Kingdom of Heaven filmmaker tells the story of Moses (Bale) who set about to free some 600,000 slaves from the nefarious King Ramses, played by an almost unrecognizable Edgerton.

Exodus: Gods and Kings arrives in US theaters on December 12th and in the UK on December 26th, just in time for awards season.
