What: “Exodus: Gods and Kings”
Cast: Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley
Writers: Adam Cooper, Bill Collage, Jeffrey Caine and Steven Zaillian
Director: Ridley Scott
The story: Moses (Christian Bale) defies Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton) and leads 400,000 slaves out of Egypt in this 3-D telling of the biblical journey.
The buzz: For such an expensive spectacle, most of the buzz about “Exodus” has been about white actors being cast in all the leading roles.
