Watch: Two new Exodus: Gods and Kings videos highlight Ramses’ relationship with his father Seti and with Moses November 25, 2014

exodus-ramses-03Another day, another featurette for Exodus: Gods and Kings — and this one, without quite saying so, draws perhaps the closest connection between this film and Gladiator of any video to date.

Note how it focuses on Ramses’ relationship with his father Seti, who thinks Moses would make a better Pharaoh in his place than Ramses, his own flesh and blood. That’s eerily reminiscent of how Marcus Aurelius wanted Maximus to succeed him as the Emperor of Rome rather than his own son Commodus, no?

The question now is whether Seti will die in his sleep or whether someone will, um, intervene, the way Commodus killed his own father to become Emperor.

In any case, here is the new featurette, via Coming Soon:

And now for the screencaps. First, some context-less close-ups of Ramses:

The film’s Facebook page also posted a 14-second video today to announce the “global premiere” that will be taking place on December 3. It includes a few new shots from the scene where Seti gives Moses and Ramses their swords:

An Australian interview with Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton also went up on MSN yesterday, and it has some interesting quotes from the co-stars, but no new footage.
