2014 has been quite a year for Biblical epics. First came Noah and the apocalyptic flood earlier this Spring and now it's time for 'Moses' to part the Red Sea to lead his people to freedom in Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings.
Original movie costume worn by Christian Bale as Moses
in Exodus: Gods and Kings
Christian Bale plays the legendary Moses in this adaptation of the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt from the Old Testament, and by the looks of this armoured Moses costume we're going to see lots of chariots and swordplay before he helps lead the slaves to their freedom.
These original costumes worn by the lead actors in the movie were photographed on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema on November 18, 2014.

This is not the designer's first collaboration with Ridley Scott, so be sure to check out these impressive film costumes from 2010's Robin Hood and more swords-and-sandals movie costumes from 2000's Gladiator, for which she earned an Academy Award.

I'm not sure I'm the right audience for Biblical epics, although I remember watching Charlton Heston play a very bearded Moses as a child in 1956's The Ten Commandments, but these costumes look so amazing up close, I'm almost tempted to go and see this movie to see them in action.
