Poor Egyptians are attacked by a swarm of hungry locusts in this new clip of Exodus Gods and Kings, the upcoming epic fantasy action movie directed by Ridley Scott:
Exodus Gods and Kings
“The story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.”
Sorry to burst the biblical bubble, but there’s no god behind locust swarms: those little critters sometime swarm from their own will that’s all, it’s a natural behavior. Unfortunately when they swarm on landing they devour all vegetation: and then it is indeed a plague. But it isn’t a plague from some divine entity.
Anyway, Ancient Egyptians should have eaten those locusts: I heard they’re really delicious! And they’re even kosher with that, LOL!
