In the year 1300 BC, Egypt plays host to an epic battle between Moses (Christian Bale) and Ramses (Joel Edgerton) . Once brothers, now enemies they fight to rule Egypt whilst trying to escape the ten deadly plagues.

As a fictional, big-budget, 3-D, epic interpretation of Moses’ journey, Exodus: Gods and Kings is spectacular.Chicago Sun-Times

Synopsis

This Epic Biblical tale sees the defiant God-chosen leader Moses rising up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses and setting 600,000 Hebrew slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

DNEG co-founder Peter Chiang was overall VFX Supervisor on the film whilst DNEG, under the supervision of Charlie Noble, worked to create the 10 Plagues including the crocodile attack that turns the Nile blood red, the plagues of frogs, flies and locusts. DNEG also worked to create the Egyptian environments and set extensions for the scenes in Egypt.
