Bible films are back and in full swing. "Noah" was first in line, now comes "Exodus" and even "King David" is already being fast tracked towards production.
While "Noah" had a lukewarm reception, despite being an action biblical film. "Exodus" looks on the other hand to be a more nuanced and classical bible adaption approach. Focused on the most important events of the Moses story, being a bit more straightforward (compared to Noah), beefing up the dramatic performances of the actors and hoping for possible Oscar nominations.
That doesn't naturally make into a must see film, but into a film property that we will more or less know what to expect of.
