Ridley Scott Talks Through ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Trailer and Digital Magic (VIDEOS)

It's been a while since Ridley Scott's epic "Gladiator" took home the Best Picture Oscar back in 2001. Anyone who’s seen that or "Kingdom of Heaven" or "Robin Hood" can easily conjure the look, feel and scale of Scott's return to the sword-and-sandal genre with the Biblical "Exodus: Gods and Kings." Lo and behold, see the first trailer below (the poster definitely reaches for a "300" feel).

'Bad Grandpa' Pulls Young Males, 'Counselor' Flops, '12 Years' Makes Top Ten, NC-17 'Blue' Starts Strong
