Fox Chief On 20th’s Biblical Oscar Contender: ‘You Don’t See Movies On This Scale Anymore’

1 hour ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Earlier today Deadline debuted the new trailer for 20th Century Fox’s big Christmas picture Exodus: Gods And Kings. The large-scale biblical drama looks Big. Epic. The kind of movie studios used to thrive on but are simply cost-prohibitive these days. Well, they seem to be making a comeback. Ben-Hur, which took 11 Academy Awards in 1959 including Best Picture, is now being remade. Of course Paramount released Darren Aronofsky’s Noah early in the year. But Gladiator in 2000 was the last big-scale epic of this period to wow Academy voters into giving up their Best Picture vote. It’s no coincidence that Ridley Scott directed that one, which also brought Russell Crowe an Oscar for Best Actor. Now Scott is back doing the impossible for Fox with Exodus.

In a brief conversation before the studio’s special press presentation Tuesday evening at the Zanuck Theatre on its lot, Fox Chairman Jim Gianopulos »

How Monty Python and Mel Brooks Helped Christian Bale Play Moses

4 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After Ridley Scott offered Christian Bale the part of Moses in his forthcoming Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, the famously prepared actor indulged in a bit of inventional research. “Whilst I was still trying to get my head wrapped around it, I went and rented The Life of Brian, which is a real favorite film of mine,” Bale told journalists in Los Angeles yesterday, after screening nearly 30 minutes of footage from Exodus. “Beautifully made film! Wonderful film … It was sort of a guiding light for me, and I must confess that ‘Always Look On the Bright Side of Life’ was sort of always humming through my head on set.”After watching Monty Python’s absurdist religious satire, Bale moved on to more of the same: Mel Brooks’s History of the World, Part 1. “You have to get that out of your system,” he explained. “You have to understand, what »

20th Century Fox Releases Epic New Exodus: Gods And Kings Trailer

8 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

20th Century Fox has unveiled a new trailer for director Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated film, Exodus: Gods And Kings. The movie stars Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Mendelsohn and Ben Kingsley.

This is a film that requires an IMAX viewing and one that would have been presented in Cinemascope years ago. The scale of it looks like Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments and going by the visuals from this new trailer, Scott has mastered Epic as an artform.

20th Century Fox previewed parts of the film for the media on Tuesday. Variety’s Awards Editor Tim Gray writes the film falls into the,

“they don’t make ‘em like that anymore” category, with big battle scenes and aerial panoramas of ancient cities, rustic settlements and military camps, all rendered in 3D CGI glory. And the footage really shifted into high gear »

New Trailer For Exodus: Gods And Kings

9 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Bringing the story of Moses' freeing of 6,000 Egyptian slaves to life, Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings definitely puts the epic into biblical epic, with the latest trailer showing the huge scope of Scott's take on the material. There is a lot more on display here than we have previously seen, and beyond the parting of the Red Sea and the plagues that ravage Egypt, we get a better look at the relationship between Christian Bale's Moses and Joel Egerton's Rhamses which drives much of the movie. Check it out below. Released: December 12th USA / December 26th Ireland & UK »

“Exodus” will bow in theaters on Dec. 12, 2015.

Christian Bale and Ridley Scott's Biblical Tale Looks Pretty Rad

9 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Are you ready for some biblically apocalyptic business to go down? Christian Bale is starring as Moses in Ridley Scott's epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, and he is looking good - as are the special effects - in the trailer. He's up against his childhood friend the Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton, sporting a lot of eyeliner) in the battle to free Egyptian slaves. If you know the tale about Moses, you know the story doesn't end there. It's Moses's job to rally a ton of people to flee before the plagues arrive, meaning he has some locusts to swat and a Red Sea to part, a little of which we actually get to see in this trailer. I'm digging the special effects, and I can't wait to see Aaron Paul as Joshua, plus more of Sigourney Weaver. The movie opens Dec. 12, and you can take a look at the full trailer now. »

Is Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' an Oscar Secret Weapon? (Video)

10 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While Christian Bale admitted that you can't out-Heston Charlton Heston in playing the all-consuming Moses, the real question last night at Fox was if Ridley Scott can out-"Gladiator" "Gladiator" with "Exodus: Gods and Kings" (December 12). After glimpsing about a half-hour of powerful footage that left us wanting more, the answer is definitely yes (watch the new trailer below). In fact, Fox will probably have another Best Picture Oscar contender to go along with David Fincher's hot "Gone Girl." Scott's ambitious retelling of Moses as conflicted revolutionary is right up the Academy's alley. It should score a slew of above and below the line noms, including potential nods for Dariusz Wolski's gritty cinematography, Arthur Max's opulent production design, Janty Yates' authentic-looking costumes, James Harrison's thunderous sound design, Double Negative's incomplete yet impressive VFX, Alberto Iglesias' as-yet-unheard score and Billy Rich's »

James Franco on Seth Rogen's 'dumb face': From 'The Interview' set

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Vancouver - It's no wonder that Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and James Franco finish each other's sentences. The former two grew up together in Vancouver, have collaborated on scripts since they were 12 years old. Rogen produced and co-starred in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," which filmed 10 years ago; it also cast James Franco, the first of many creative starts for the two of them. For 2013's "This Is The End," Goldberg and Rogen co-directed, Rogen and Franco co-starred -- the same as the setup to forthcoming comedy "The Interview." "Basically until [Sony Pictures] saw 'This is the End, we didn’t know if they’d let us direct another movie," Rogen explained. "So, once they saw it, they decided they would let us direct another movie." Goldberg and Rogen headed back home to Vancouver to shoot much of this action-oriented flick, with the story set mostly in North Korea. Franco with them -- »

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’: Christian Bale on Moses, Biblical Scale, & Charlton Heston

11 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

One of the most surprising aspects of Ridley Scott’s upcoming biblical action epic Exodus: Gods and Kings is that it marks the first director/actor collaboration between Scott and star Christian Bale. Just seems these two should’ve crossed filmmaking paths long before now, does it not? Lucky for us and audiences, we’ll soon get to see the fruits of their labor when Exodus arrives in theaters December 12. Until then, there is a new trailer to analyze along with intel from Bale himself.

Last night in Los Angeles Screen Rant was invited to view the trailer and roughly 30 minutes of footage, followed by a ten-minute conversation with Bale moderated ...

Family. It can be tough at the best of times, but few sibling – or in this case, adoptive sibling – squabbles quite reach the heights of the tale of Moses and the Pharaoh. It’s a story that has been brought to the screen before, yet Ridley Scott has decided to tackle it with Exodus: Gods And Kings. The new trailer is now online via Fox.Gods And Kings finds Christian Bale as Moses, who, after years spent growing up in Egypt like a brother with Rhamses (Joel Edgerton), the man who will become Pharaoh, he learns of a prophecy that he’s destined to lead his people to freedom from slavery.And because Moses has God in his side, when Rhamses refuses his request, wave after wave of terrible plagues are wrought upon his people. Despite Rhamses’ claim to be a living god himself, he’s no match for what actually happens. »

Christian Bale is Moses in ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ trailer

11 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Moses is the hero Egypt deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So says the lord.

I might be getting some movies confused there, but regardless, Christian Bale is back in action hero form in the trailer for Ridley Scott’s latest swords and sandals epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, a retelling of the Biblical story of Moses (Bale) and his exodus from Ancient Egypt under the rule of Rhamses (Joel Edgerton). Exodus is one of several Christian stories to hit the big screen this year, including Son of God, but it’s also finding Scott back in top form, away from the turgid and surreal drama of The Counselor and back to the period genre that won him an Oscar for Gladiator. Exodus also stars Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro and Aaron Paul, and it’s set for a December 12 release date nationwide. Watch the fairly lengthy trailer, »

Exodus: Gods And Kings Preview; 30 Minutes of Footage Reveals Epic Scope

11 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last night I drove down to Fox to attend a special preview of footage from director Ridley Scott's upcoming biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings.  While I can't really offer any opinions on the film since what we saw was both incomplete and a relatively small snippet (around 30 minutes) of the overall experience, I will say that this film looks massive and that they got an impressive amount of ground covered in their relatively brief (for a movie of this scale) 72 day production.  The trailer that hit this morning covers some of this ground, but there's a lot more that you're not seeing. Scott's epic stars Christian Bale - who was there to answer a few questions - as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Rhamses.  Hit the jump to check out our Exodus: Gods and Kings footage preview.  The film also stars Ben KingsleyAaron PaulJohn Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver. »

Brother vs. brother in new battle-heavy Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer

11 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Moses gets a 21st century makeover in Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings.

Based on the Biblical story of Moses (Christian Bale) and Rhamses (Joel Edgerton), a pair of men raised as brothers, one born of privilege, the other adopted into the royal family when the Pharaoh decreed that all male Hebrew children be put to death.    Moses’ destiny was kept hidden from him until Nun (Ben Kingsley) tells of the prophecy naming him as the savior of the people, setting Moses and Rhamses into head-to-head battle over their beliefs.

Scott’s epic pays homage to the Biblical epics of the 1940s and 1950s while simultaneously romanticizing and modernizing the source material to better reflect technology and what audience-goers expect.  We’ve still got our burning bushes, and the plagues of Egypt, but thanks to CGI effects, the sheer scale of the film goes beyond the soundstages of the »

When one thinks of Moses one typically thinks of… Coldplay, right?* Well, Coldplay is what you’ll get in the new trailer for Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings.

(Okay, yes, you may actually think of Coldplay, given that the band has a song called “Moses” and Chris Martin’s son is named Moses. “Moses” is not the song used in this trailer.)

In the trailer, there’s also Christian Bale (as Moses) yelling, Joel Edgerton (as Ramses) glaring, aggressive locusts and frogs, a crocodile taking down a boat’s mast, and Aaron Paul in a beard. Yes, Scott »

Moses Rises in a New Trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings

11 hours ago | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

You can’t keep the chosen one down, especially when he’s being played by Batman himself, Christian Bale. Check out a new trailer for Ridley Scott’s bible epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the guy who thinks he’s a god is a bad guy, and the guy with the scraggly beard trying to save everyone is a good guy. Call it a hunch. Also, check out the burning bush… From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) 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 »

Watch: New Official Trailer for Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'

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

Fox has released the first full trailer for Ridley Scott's epic Exodus: Gods and Kings starring Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses. It's definitely going for the glossy, "this isn't your father's biblical epic" vibe complete with gold skirts, eyeliner, CGI and more eyeliner. The film has already taken a large amount of heat for the lack of diversity among its principal cast members, which also includes Aaron Paul as Joshua, the leader of the Israelite tribes, Ben Kingsley as Nun the scholar and John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver as Ramses' parents, Seti and Tuya. That scrutiny is likely to follow the film all the way to its December 12 release, but this one looks like it can be just as easily judged for its ethnic makeup as it can its literal makeup and just how stylized and over the top it appears.

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Trailer #2: God is Greater Than Pharaohs

12 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

With Exodus: Gods and Kings, director Ridley Scott (Gladiator) is attempting to retell the biblical story of Moses leading the Israelites on the exodus out of Egyptian slavery; a story that has been told and re-told cinematically each and every Easter, in the form of the 1956 film, The Ten Commandments.

In this new version of the story, actors Christian Bale (Dark Knight) and Joel Edgerton (Warrior) take over the roles of Moses and Rameses II, which were famously played by Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner in Ten Commandments. If you’ve seen that older film (or any of the previous trailers for this film), then you know the basic layout of the story is still the same: Moses and Rameses start out as brothers; Moses learns he is destined to be leader of the Israelites; God delivers prophecies of Israelite freedom and Egyptian ...
