The Poster Posse is back, and they have come together to pay tribute to Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi horror film Alien, which celebrated its 35th Anniversary this year. I can't believe it's been 35 years since that movie was released! The movie launched the career of Sigourney Weaver and introduced the world to the Xenomorph, one of the most terrifying aliens in the history of film.
I've included several pieces of art that have been submitted for the first phase of this tribute project below.

Throughout the year, we've featured some cool artwork from Poster Posse hyping up films like Disney's Big Hero 6, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. But the latest efforts of artists paying tribute to films with their incredible art work is for a film that hit theaters decades ago. You may not realize it, but this year is the 35th anniversary of Alien, the sci-fi horror classic that introduced us to terrifying xenomorphs and the tough-as-nails Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), and Poster Posse has just rounded up some awesome pieces for the film's anniversary, and we've posted our favorites below. Look! Here's just some of the artwork created by Poster Posse for the 35th anniversary of Alien: If you want to see more, and find out the artists names and seen more intricate details on some of the prints, you can check out all of Phase »

Yesterday we heard some plot details for Paul Feig’s upcoming all-female Ghostbusters remake, and now the latest round of Sony leaks has given us some insight into Ivan Reitman’s original plans for Ghostbusters III, which stem from an email last year from the director, which was sent to Sony co-chariman Amy Pascal and concerned the second draft of the script.
Titled Ghostbusters: Alive Again, the film would have focussed on Ray (Dan Aykroyd), Egon (Harold Ramis) and Winston (Ernie Hudson) passing the torch to a younger team of Ghostbusters which included ‘Chris’, the son of Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman (who is assumed to be Oscar, Venkman’s son with Sigourney Weaver’s Dana Barrett).
For the role of Chris, Reitman said that he had met with Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) but stated that he was “unsure” about the casting. »

Now playing in theaters around the world is Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings. As most of you know, the film is Scott’s take on the Bliblical story of Moses, with Christian Bale playing the former Egyptian prince and Joel Edgerton filling the role of the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses. The film also stars John Turturro, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley. For more on the film watch these clips or the trailer. At the press junket in Paris I landed an exclusive video interview with Aaron Paul. He talked about what it was like working for Ridley Scott, why he'll always remember shooting the Red Sea sequence, deleted scenes, future projects, his wife's charity, and more. Hit the jump to watch. Aaron Paul: What was it like working for Ridley Scott on a huge Hollywood movie. Was there a day or two that he'll always remember from making Exodus? »

Check out the video below:
From acclaimed director Ridley Scott comes the epic adventure Exodus: Gods And Kings, the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 400,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

The fact that it’s 2014 and we still have to differentiate between a “female” movie character and simply a movie character is troubling. If you watch Robert De Niro in Raging Bull you’ll never be tempted to say, “boy, that’s a really interesting and strong male character.” However, Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley is still explicitly praised as a “strong female character,” as if it’s such an oddity that an emphasis needs to be put on the fact that she’s a woman.
While film school classes and incensed critics continue to debate the lack of women in film, female actresses have been fighting the good fight on the silver screen itself. Alas, not in anywhere near the numbers needed, but progress is still being made.
2014 has seen its fair share of damsels in distress, nagging housewives, and ditzy girlfriends; it has also seen a »

20th Century released their new action/Bible flick, "Exodus: Gods and Kings," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out and thought it was very entertaining, but I was disappointed with how they skimped out on the special effects and really sort of just skimmed through a lot of the important parts of the story. But still it was an interesting take. The movie stars: John Turturro, Christian Bale, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, Joel Edgerton, and Aaron Paul. In the new flick, the plotline started off when Moses was already fully grown and a prince in Egypt alongside Ramses. It goes through the motions of how Moses eventually started talking with the Hebrews and discovered that he was actually born a Hebrew,and then later, was exiled from Egypt after Ramses found out about it. From there, they showed how Moses fought off an assassination attempt while alone out in the middle of nowhere. »

Exodus: Gods and Kings, 2014.
Directed by Ridley Scott.
The defiant leader Moses rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
When revered director Quentin Tarantino takes to interviews and discusses that filmmaking is a young man’s game and that so many auteurs overstay their welcome, one can’t help but feel that Ridley Scott is a perfect representation. Coming off of a roll of commonly agreed-upon terrible movies (The Counselor, Prometheus) Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings seems to be an attempt at re-creating something in the vein of Gladiator; his sprawling lengthy epic that won the award for Best Picture.
Let’s just get it out of the way, Exodus: Gods and Kings is another misfire, »

Chicago – The world certainly didn’t need another “Ten Commandments,” but director Ridley Scott tries to remake the 50’s Biblical epic anyway – led by Christian Bale as a scowling and shouting Moses. Yet Bale can’t hold a staff to Charlton Heston and Scott is no Cecil B. DeMille.
Ostensibly this is a movie about the power of faith, but Scott’s film has no soul within.
Bale starts as the favored adopted son of the aging pharaoh Seti (John Turturro). He’s the pharaoh who would rather hand over the keys to his kingdom to Moses than his own flesh and blood, the egotistical Ramses (an uncomfortable-looking Joel Edgerton). Moses starts out a cynic, but after a little trip to see the suffering the slaves are enduring, he learns of his own true Hebrew heritage.
Once the pharaoh dies and Ramses takes power he has Moses banished to exile. »

20th Century Fox released their new action/Bible film, "Exodus: Gods And Kings," into theaters this weekend and all the reviews are in from the top critics. It turns out that they were pretty mixed about how they felt about it, giving it an overall 52 score out of a possible 100 across 35 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: John Turturro, Christian Bale, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, Joel Edgerton, and Aaron Paul. We've included blurbs from a few of the critics,below. Richard Roeper over at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a perfect 100 score, saying: "As a fictional, big-budget, 3-D, epic interpretation of Moses’ journey, Exodus: Gods and Kings is spectacular." Justin Chang at Variety, gave it a 90 score, stating: "What’s remarkable about Scott’s genuinely imposing Old Testament psychodrama is the degree to which he succeeds in conjuring a mighty and momentous spectacle — one that, for sheer astonishment, »

Cecil B. DeMille's 1956 epic The Ten Commandments is in no danger of being dethroned by this week's Ridley Scott-directed movie Exodus: Gods and Kings. This film has so many problems, I don't know where to start throwing the blame. Let's call this one (scripted by the brilliant team behind Tower Heist) the worst story that should never be told.
Perhaps we should start with the whitewashing of its cast. Christian Bale picks up Charlton Heston's sword as Moses, the slave prince. The central conflict is set up between him and Joel Edgerton's Rameses as a prophecy hints the adopted Moses might one day take his place as leader. Joining them are Sigourney Weaver who has no more than two lines as Rameses' mother and John Turturro as the wise old Pharoah Seti. I respect and admire Turturro's acting, but still have to suppress a chuckle that »

2015 is going to be a big year at Collider. Behind-the-scenes I've been working on a number of things that will make the site an even better place to get your news, reviews and interviews. I can't wait to launch all the cool upgrades and reveal what I've been doing. While you’ll have to wait for most of that to take effect, we are launching one of the upgrades today. As most of you know, when we interview people at press junkets, we run the full interview. While we're going to continue offering that option, we're also going to offer highlights from all the interviews in one video and mix in footage and graphics. Curious about what I mean? Then hit the jump to see Ridley Scott, Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton and Aaron Paul talk about bringing Exodus: Gods and Kings to life. Finally, before getting to the video, as most of you know, »

Exodus: Gods and Kings, out Friday, stars Christian Bale as Moses in the Biblical epic, opposite Joel Edgerton as his brother and ruler. Also starring John Turturro, Ben Mendolsohn, Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver, Ridley Scott's adaptation of the Israelites' journey out of Egypt is updated with 3D technology. Still, Exodus won't match the other big-budget Biblical epic this year, Darren Aronofsky's Noah. Prerelease tracking suggests it may open in the $25 million to $30 million range, behind the $43.7 million debut of Noah. Read more Christian Bale Defends 'Exodus' Casting, A New Kind of Moses and

When the entire span of Ridley Scott's career is finally written about, it's tough to say where a film like "Exodus: Gods and Kings" will stand. On the one hand, it's a big, brash, big-budget retelling of an ancient Biblical tale, a story of such big proportions that no less a titan than Cecil B. DeMille made two distinct versions of the Hebrews-out-of-Egypt story. On the other hand, it's a film that doesn't lend itself to hyperbolic enthusiasm, the way Scott's "Alien," "Blade Runner" or "Thelma and Louise" did.
I'm no fan of "Gladiator," but it's fair to say that it provided a template for Ridley's later work -- mixing high drama, big action sequences and a visual flair that owed as much to early Hollywood extravaganzas as it did to latter-day adventure films. It may be because I watched it only the week before, but the film that »

As most of you know, Exodus: Gods and Kings is Ridley Scott’s take on the Biblical story of Moses with Christian Bale playing the former Egyptian prince and Joel Edgerton filling the role of the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses. The film also stars John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley. For more on the film watch these clips or the trailer. Last week at the big press junket in Paris I landed an exclusive video interview with Ridley Scott and Christian Bale. They talked about why they wanted to tell this story, the 4-hour long first cut, how the Blu-ray will have 25 minutes of deleted scenes, memorable moments from the set including Bale’s experience with camel poop and a lot more. Hit the jump to check it out. Exodus: Gods and Kings is currently playing in select markets around the world and is due to »

Directed by Ridley Scott
Perhaps the End Times are finally upon us. How else to explain a year that began with Russell Crowe playing Noah and ends with Christian Bale as Moses? Whereas Darren Aronofsky’s Noah reached giddily crazy heights, Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings never transcends its plodding, inevitable story arc. Not only does it lack the visual imagination we’ve come to expect from Scott, a potentially-interesting “tale of two brothers” spin is completely wasted by a lazy script. This is about as by-the-numbers as epics get.
You have to admire Christian Bale’s refusal to even attempt a showy accent. His cocksure attitude as Moses is so inappropriate that all you can do is shake your head in bemused wonder. Had the entire film been as defiant as its leading man, »

While Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, Viola Davis and Martin Freeman are among the stars celebrating their well-deserved Golden Globe nominations on Thursday morning, we would like to raise our proverbial glass to these double nominees.
Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo and Bill Murray each scored a pair of acting noms this year, giving them each a shot at the rare double Globes win. Once more: for Murray and Ruffalo, the nominations mark each actor’s excellence on screens both big and small.
Pics: All the 2015 Golden Globes Nominees
Ruffalo, 47, is up for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television for his role in HBO's The Normal Heart, as well as Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama, for Foxcatcher. The news comes just one day after Ruffalo was nominated in the same categories for the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Meanwhile, Murray is being recognized in the Best Actor in a Motion Picture »
It's easy to get swept up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas. With all the emphasis on the trees and the lights and the shiny, shiny gifts, it's easy to forget about the holiday's deeply religious roots, about the birth of Christ and the three wise men and all of that. And there's at least one movie out this season that tries to at least carry the spiritual flavor of the holiday forward -- Fox's "Exodus: Gods and Kings," an epic, hugely expensive re-telling of the story of Moses (this time played by former Batman Christian Bale) leading the Jews out of Egypt, and far away from the cruel pharaoh (Joel Edgerton).
This is a story that has been told countless times before, most notably in the cinematic incarnations of "The Ten Commandments" (starring Charlton Heston) and "Prince of Egypt" (the DreamWorks animated disappointment). So the question remains -- why now? »

Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings comes out this weekend, and 20th Century Fox has unloaded a ton of videos to promote it. We've got two clips, one featurette, and nine TV spots below for you to watch. This is such an insane story, and I'm excited to see Scott's vision of it up on the big screen.
The story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. sing state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
