Will 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Anger Christiansc Bale Calls Moses "Schizophrenic" & "Barbaric"

46 minutes ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It seems Ridley Scott is going the opposite direction Darren Aronofsky went with Noah when it comes to interpreting the more magical and mystical events to be told in his upcoming Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings. Aronofsky made use of rock monsters to explain how one family could construct an ark that would carry two of all the world's species of animals, but when it comes to the parting of the Red Sea in Exodus, Scott turned to science rather than magic. "You can't just do a a giant parting, with walls of water trembling while people ride between them," Scott told Entertainment Weekly, saying he wasn't convinced when he saw Charlton Heston do it in Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments (1956). "I didn't believe it then, when I was just a kid sitting in the third row. I remember that feeling, and thought that I'd better come »

Terminator: Genisys Spoilers – 8 Plot Points Revealed

1 hour ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

When Terminator: Genisys was first announced, fans rightly had a lot of questions. And not all of them were about unorthodox styles of spelling. The franchise which had begun so strong had tapered off towards the end, with the most recent fourth instalment in the series being remembered more for Christian Bale acting like a douche on set than, really, anything about the film itself. Sam Worthingon was in it, right? What happened to that guy?

There’s been speculation about whether a new Terminator film is even necessary, if and how Arnold Schwarzenegger could be brought back into the fold, and what the heck a new Terminator film would even be about. This week saw a front-page exclusive in industry magazine Entertainment Weekly which answers…some of those questions, at least. And answers them in the sort of vague way these things usually do.

The answers it did give, »

Two 'Exodus: Gods & Kings' TV Spots Arrive with a Couple Interviews

2 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Regardless of whether or not you're annoyed with the whitewashing of the cast in Ridley Scott's latest epic Exodus: Gods & Kings, the film is arriving this winter, and plenty of people will go see it, oblivious to the controversy that has stirred up online. And to drum up more hype, two TV spots for the film have arrived showing off the conflict that arises between two brothers, Moses (Christian Bale) and Ramses (Joel Edgerton), and the battle that ensues as one follows his destiny to save his people, and the other is driven by his desire to be remembered as a god. Could this be Scott's return to glory on the big screen? Watch now! Here's the two new TV spots for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods & Kings from 20th Century Fox: And as a bonus, here's a couple interviews with Ridley Scott, Christian Bale & Joel Edgerton: If you haven't seen it, »

New 'Terminator: Genisys' Pics, a $170 Million Price Tag, Synthespians and Schwarzenegger Arrogance

2 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Yesterday we saw two terrible promo images from Terminator: Genisys, adorning the cover of the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. Today EW is back with some pictures to go with said cover story and there's a lot of standing around and mouth open screaming whilst gun-shooting and I doubt any of it is going to boost your confidence in the film after yesterday's unfortunately ugly first look. I finally broke down yesterday and read the "twist" and spoilery part of EW's piece, which went as follows: Twist No. 1c Sarah Connor isn't the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton's steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991's T2. Rather, the mother of humanity's messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she's been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger's Terminator--an older T-800 she calls "Pops"--who »

Children of the Revolution: An exclusive first look at 'Terminator: Genisys'

4 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Terminator is having a bad day. It's a muggy July afternoon in New Orleans—the temperature is loitering in the triple digits—and Arnold Schwarzenegger is inside a giant warehouse on the grounds of Nasa's Michoud Assembly Facility. Suited up in a black leather jacket with green-painted latex obscuring most of the right side of his face, he is again playing the indelible robot that solidified his place in Hollywood some 30 years ago. So far today the former governor of California has been stepped on and forced to crawl on the ground, and now, as he gasps for breath fighting his opponent, »

5 movie antiheroes to watch before experiencing Nightcrawler's Lou Bloom

9 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nightcrawler review: A black-hearted thriller

Jake Gyllenhaal returns to the big screen this week in the brilliant Nightcrawler, an La-set thriller about a cameraman who films grisly crime scenes and traffic accidents to make a fast buck from sensationalist TV news stations.

Nightcrawler's Lou Bloom is the latest in a long line of movie characters you love to hate, antiheroes infused with a near-sociopathic drive to succeed and make their mark. Here are 5 movies you need to see to get yourself ready for Nightcrawler's plummet into the moral abyss.

Robert De Niro in The King of Comedy (1983)

Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro's jet-black comedy is one of the pair's overlooked collaborations, but in our humble opinion it's one of their best. Exploring similar territory to the duo's masterpiece Taxi Driver, this film casts De Niro as Rupert Pupkin, a terrible stand-up comic with an intense desire to become famous. »

It's Christian Bale Against Joel Edgerton in Latest ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Trailer (Video)

14 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ridley Scott‘s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” is a story of conflict with two men at the heart of the storm.

Fox Surpasses Four-Year-Old Box Office Record; No. 1 Heading Into Holiday Season

28 October 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Bouyed by the success of a tremendous slate of films that has included X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Gone Girl, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, The Maze Runner, The Fault In Our Stars, How To Train Your Dragon 2, Rio 2 and Son Of God (to name a few), 20th Century Fox has beaten a four-year-old domestic box office record for its highest-grossing year ever. Already. It’s also edging closer to breaking an international box office record as well.

In 2004, Fox scored $1.48 billion; this year its slate has been even more explosive to help the studio cross the $1.5 billion mark. That record was set October 19 with Gone Girl pushing past $100 million. If we include Fox Searchlight, which released the box office favorite The Grand Budapest Hotel in March, the studio is actually up to $1.62 billion (that’s through yesterday). The studio is, of course, still the box »

Christian Bale Thinks Moses Had These Mental Problems

28 October 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

A religious movie without controversy is like a hockey game without a penalty. It.s technically possible, but it very rarely happens. Earlier this year, there was a whole lot of noise surrounding Noah thanks to how the Old Testament character was depicted, and now, we.re getting the same activity surrounding Exodus: Gods And Kings thanks to Christian Bale telling the world he thinks Moses had mental problems. There is a fair amount of debate among Christians as to how literally to take the events in the Old Testament, but even given that wiggle room, Christian Bale came in really hot with his Moses-related comments when he attacked the prophet.s personality and mental state during a recent press event in Los Angeles. Here.s a portion of the quote, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter. "I think the man was likely schizophrenic and was one of the most »

Jennifer Garner Describes Ben Affleck's Batman v Superman Voice As "Growly And Sexy"

27 October 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Christian Bale's Batman voice was loved by some fans and hated by many others, and if you were expecting Ben Affleck's take on the iconic DC Comics character to drop that, think again! Jennifer Garner's comments in the latest issue of Empire Magazine reveal she's heard her husband's take on the Dark Knight in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and based on her description, it doesn't sound all that different to The Dark Knight Trilogy's! "We were not privy to the Batman voice at home, but I've been on set enough to hear bits of it. It's spot on. Growly and decisive and sexy, if I do say so myself! Exactly what you would hope it to be!" It sounds like fans won't be disappointed then, but they were when Elektra was brought to the big screen in both Daredevil and her own movie. »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: Batman vs. Superman vs. Captain America vs. Iron Man

27 October 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Two weeks ago, in the span of about 24 hours, the universe of superhero movies rapidly expanded in a series of bizarre new directions. First came news that Marvel was actively considering making the next Captain America movie into the next Iron Man movie, in a story arc that would cull material from the mid-2000s mega-crossover "Civil War." Coincidentally or probably not, Warner Bros. chose that precise cultural moment to announce that they were planning a whole bunch of DC superhero movies. Wonder Woman? Aquaman? Cyborg? Check, check, checkeroo! Several readers wrote in with their own thoughts on the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes. »

Watch: The Adventures Of Young Abraham Lincoln In New Trailer For Terrence Malick-Produced 'The Better Angels'

27 October 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After averaging around one film per decade during his 40-plus-year career, beloved director of ethereal freeform dramas and whispered voice-overs, Terrence Malick, recently decided to increase his productivity by a factor of ten. Previously, he waited between five and 20 years between projects. However, he releases the mostly disappointing “To The Wonder” in 2012, a mere year after his masterwork “The Tree of Life." The Christian Bale-led “Knight of Cups” will presumably hit theaters in 2015, while Malick has another untitled movie cooking too. Two Malick films in the Same year!? Cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria! (And oh, we failed to mention his brewing documentary "Voyage Of Time" too). Along with his newfound directorial speed, Malick has been working hard as a producer recently as well. He has his name attached as producer on five features to be released in 2014 and 2015. In fact, the trailer for “The Better Angels," »

New Exodus: Gods And Kings Posters Land

27 October 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There's less than two months before Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings arrives, and new posters have landed to keep that fact in our brains and warn us of the wrath of the almighty (that'd be Sir Ridders) if we should forget. Scott's latest charts the relationship between Moses (Christian Bale) and Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), one that is quickly filled with demands, plagues, suffering and a very long walk. Yes, it’s the old story of Moses demanding that Pharaoh let his people go so he can lead them to the Promised Land. Pharaoh, of course, has no intention of releasing his largely slave workforce, and the stage is set for an epic showdown.Scott has opted for old-school scale on this one, constructing massive sets for his Egyptian tale, which pumps up the story to match the ambition of the designs. There remain concerns and complaints about the casting, »

Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton Go Head-to-Head in Latest Exodus: Gods And Kings Posters

27 October 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Come December 5th, Christian Bale’s Moses and Joel Edgerton’ Ramses will go head-to-head in Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings, and these latest posters for the film really play up the conflicting tactics of the two.  Even though they grew up together, almost like brothers, Ramses is the one who’s born to rule Egypt whereas Moses is destined to lead 600,000 slaves out of the region. Similar to just about every single promo we’ve seen from the film thus far, including the first set of posters, the visuals here are bold and striking, but we’ve still got a little over a month to go until we find out if the heavy eyeliner and flashy armor translate into a worthy retelling of the story - although I am very hopeful Scott pulled it off.  Hit the jump to check out the new Exodus: Gods and Kings posters. »
