Christian Bale plays Moses in the first teaser trailer for director Ridley Scott's forthcoming biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings.

The trailer focuses on Moses butting heads with Rhamses (Joel Edgerton) and provides glimpses at the plagues that will befall the Egyptians, including fire, bloody water and a lot of really bad weather. Chariot races and sword fights also abound.
