Christian Bale meets Queen Elizabeth II

Plagues of Egypt

Exodus 10
4 If you refuse to let them go, I will bring locusts into your country tomorrow. 5 They will cover the face of the ground so that it cannot be seen. They will devour what little you have left after the hail, including every tree that is growing in your fields. 6 They will fill your houses and those of all your officials and all the Egyptians—something neither your parents nor your ancestors have ever seen from the day they settled in this land till now.’”


find it funny how people are debating the race of Ancient Egyptians and saying it’s fine for Christian Bale to play Moses in Exodus:Gods and Kings because Ancient Egyptians ‘weren’t even black’ and it’s not a classic case of white washing but….. all the slaves in the movie are black…

Erm… in the movie “and” in the Bible, Hebrews are slaves. Why would people think “all slaves in the movie are black” (well, unless they think ancient Hebrews were black)? Where does this misinformation come from?

Obviously they cast  blacks mostly for Egyptian guards and soldiers. Hebrew slaves are played by Spanish extras.
