Actor Christian Bale has been busy doing research as he transitions from Batman to Moses for the upcoming film Exodus: Gods and Kings. On Nightline this week, he related some of his conclusions about the ancient Israelite hero:

You’ll be able to judge for yourself when the movie comes out Dec. 12.
