The first trailer is out for Ridley Scott’s Christmas Biblical epic Exodus : Gods and Kings (does Moses really need a subtitle?). Along with the trailer are three new one-sheets for the film featuring Moses and Rhamses. Scott also announced today he plans a King David Biblical epic that he will probably produce rather than direct. Exodus is scheduled to open December 12, 2014.

Amistad is one of Steven Spielberg’s flawed ventures. Ultimately good, the film never rises to the heights that it should given the incredible source material: Africans, captured as slaves, rising up to overthrow their captors en route to America, then put in chains while the legal system decides whether they are men or material. While the movie as a whole isn’t flawless, this scene is. Anthony Hopkins’ portrayal of former President John Quincy Adams (the only President to return to serve in Congress after being President – factoid) is masterful and deserved the Oscar nomination it got. The culmination of the film is Adams argument before the Supreme Court on behalf of the Africans and it is one of the great movie speeches of our time.
