Exodus: Gods And Kings Trailer Is Unleashed

6 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott doesn’t make small movies. Even Alien, back in 1979 – with its $11.5 million budget – was huge. If his creative output has steadily grown in scale over the years, his latest endeavour is, apparently, his biggest yet. While eager fans seem to have been discussing Exodus: Gods And Kings forever, a new trailer has finally been released that showcases exactly what is to be expected from Scott’s new epic.

Starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley, Exodus: Gods And Kings is written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage (Tower Heist), along with Jeffrey Caine (The Constant Gardener) and Steven Zaillian (American Gangster). While, admittedly, the title sounds as though Scott intends to kick-start a Bible-based cohesive cinematic universe of movie franchises (as studios are currently wont to do), the trailer itself is undeniably thrilling – provided you ignore the obligatory and »

Thanksgiving Trailer for Exodus: Gods And Kings Is Undeniably Epic

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

20th Century Fox has released a new Thanksgiving trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings to try and pull you out of that turkey coma.  The film is director Ridley Scott’s take on the Biblical story of Moses, and while the lack of diversity in the casting (and Scott’s doubling down on his choices) is troubling, there’s no denying that this new trailer is positively epic.  Scott has made an absolutely massive film here; one that harkens brings to mind the scale of Kingdom of Heaven and Gladiator.  The visuals continue to be kind of spectacular, so now the question is whether Scott can bring something new to the table emotionally for this age-old story. Check out the new Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer after the jump.  The film stars Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John TurturroAaron PaulBen MendelsohnSigourney Weaver and Ben KingsleyExodus: Gods and Kings »

Ridley Scott Talks "Exodus" Whitewashing

27 November 2014 6:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Aside from Christian Bale's psychoanalysis of Moses, the most controversial aspect about Ridley Scott's upcoming Biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is that for a film set in ancient Egypt, it boasts a surprisingly caucasian cast including Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver and Aaron Paul. The film does boast a handful of actors of color like Ben Kingsley, Dar Salim and Indira Varm in smaller roles.

In a new Variety profile piece on 76-year-old Scott about the film, he was asked about the issue and revealed that he never even considered hiring non-white actors for the film. Why? Financing:

"I can't mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such. I'm just not going to get it financed. So the question doesn't even come up."

Ridley Scott Addresses 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Race Controversy

26 November 2014 7:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the cast of Exodus: Gods and Kings was coming together a few years ago, some fans started to complain that this Biblical re-telling of Moses' story was happening with all white actors, which include Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley and Aaron Paul. While we still have a few weeks left until this epic adventure hits theaters, it remains to be seen if the caucasian cast will be criticized even more. When asked about the "whitewashing" in an interview with Variety, director Ridley Scott revealed that he never even considered hiring non-white actors, claiming that his movie would never get financed.

"I can't mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such. I'm just not going to get it financed. So the question doesn't even come up."

Making ‘The Boxtrolls:’ “Like 18 Months Of Opening Nights” – The Contenders

26 November 2014 10:08 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Boxtrolls producer Travis Knight (ParaNorman, Coraline) and director Anthony Stacchi (Open Season) talk with Deadline’s Pete Hammond about the challenges and joys of stop-motion animation, a creation process nearly as old (and beloved) as cinema itself, in this video from Deadline’s recent Oscar showcase, The Contenders.

Actually making a film with the stop-motion process, however, can be incredibly stressful, says Stacchi. It’s like ” 18 months of opening nights with no rehearsals.”

The voice cast includes a number of notables, including Ben Kingsley, Tracy Morgan, Elle Fanning, James Urbaniak, Toni Collette and Simon Pegg (plus uncredited work by Mr. SpongeBob SquarePants (and Adventure Time Ice King) himself, Tom Kenny).

Stacchi directed the film with Graham Annable, from a script by Irena Brignull and Adam Pava, from Alan Snow’s novel Here Be Monsters! The movie was produced by Knight and David Bleiman Ichioka. It has grossed $105.7 million worldwide since its Sept. »

Ridley Scott addresses the casting choices in Exodus: Gods and Kings

26 November 2014 6:13 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Ridley Scott taking on the Bible seems like a sure bet. With a cast including Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, Aaron Paul, and Ben Kingsley, Exodus: Gods And Kinds may be the biggest Bible epic in decades. Still, since casting was first announced, many noticed that there were a lot of Caucasian actors gracing this epic set in ancient Egypt. In this day and age where movie actors from across the globe have proven their worth in Hollywood films, why such a »

Quick Impressions: "Madame Frou-Frou (Singing Voice)" in The Boxtrolls

25 November 2014 2:41 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

New Series! In Quick Impressions we'll be looking at the working actor in key movie scenes. Consider it a celebration of SAG card-holders everywhere and free advice for casting directors for people who aren't famous ...in some cases "yet". So many showbiz dreams wander around on every film set and are embedded in each frame of your favorite movies. 

Today, we're talking to actor Sean Patrick Doyle who sings the title song in The Boxtrolls in that great scene when Madame Frou-Frou takes the stage. Sir Ben Kingsley is the voice of Archibald Snatcher / Madame Frou-Frou so Sean Patrick makes like a modern day Marni Nixon.

Nathaniel: What is that process of "voice matching" and how did you get the part - it's so different from your other credits.

Potential Record-Breaking Year for English Actors in the Best Actor Category

25 November 2014 9:45 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

This year’s best actor race is filled with strong contenders, and if Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Oyelowo and Jack O’Connell all land nominations for best actor, this year could break the record for the most English actors to score a nomination in the same category in the same year.

Redmayne’s incredible portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, based on Jane Hawking’s memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, could result in his first Oscar nomination. Redmayne will receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the 26th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala on Jan. 3, whose past seven recipients have gone on to receive Oscar nominations.

Cumberbatch won the best actor award at the Hollywood Film Awards for his portrayal of Alan Turing, who helped crack the Nazi Enigma Code during World War II. (Redmayne »

20th Century Fox just released a brand new Exodus: Gods and Kings featurette in which director Ridley Scott states the obvious, that his latest is epic in scale, but the studio also just unveiled two new clips that offer up a taste of some of the quieter, more intimate moments of the film.  The first gives us our first good look at Maria Valverde’s Zipporah as she runs through what makes Moses (Christian Bale) happy – while her bracelets jingle incessantly – and then the second shows what happens when you lie to Ramses (Joel Edgerton).

Christian Bale Takes You Behind the Scenes of 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'

21 November 2014 3:32 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et delved into the making of Ridley Scott's upcoming biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, going behind the scenes with the film's star Christian Bale.

Opening Dec. 12, Exodus tells the story of Moses (Bale) leading 600,000 Israelite slaves out of Egypt.

Pics: Go on Set with the Year's Most Anticipated Films

"I laughed when [Ridley] first told me about it," Bale said. "I said, 'Moses? Like, with the hair and the sandals and the sand? Like Moses Moses?' And he said, 'Yep.' 'Okay, alright.' That seemed like a ridiculous challenge, and I love ridiculous challenges."

For an actor, there's no bigger challenge than portraying a biblical character, especially when you didn't grow up in Sunday School.

"I learned about Moses from Charlton Heston," Bale said, referencing The Ten Commandments. "That was my notion of Moses, and I was stunned when I started looking into the Torah and reading it."

'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Preview: Enter Ridley Scott's Epic World

19 November 2014 11:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ramses (Joel Edgerton) confronts Miriam (Indira Varma) about her true relationship to Moses (Christian Bale) in an intense scene from Exodus: Gods and Kings.

While we don't have much context for this clip, Ramses clearly feels betrayed by Miriam for hiding the fact that she is actually Moses' sister. While Moses tries to persuade Ramses to stop this line of questioning, he ends up revealing the truth just as Ramses is about to harm his sister.

And, in case that clip wasn't enough Biblical action for you, we have a new featurette that includes new footage and interviews with director Ridley Scott, who believes that this world hasn't been properly portrayed before. We also hear from stars Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, who describe their characters' journeys and working with Ridley Scott on this epic adventure.
