No joke: Christian Bale watched Monty Python's 'Life of Brian' before playing Moses

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ladies and gentleman, Ridley Scott has returned to the Ancient world and it ain't "Gladiator" or "Kingdom of Heaven." 20th Century Fox provided an early look at Scott's latest opus, "Exodus: Gods and Kings," Tuesday night in Century CIty for a notable number of La media. The studio's new tentpole is just that, a very big, Hollywood movie re-telling the story of Moses discovering his Hebrew heritage and leading his people out of Egypt.  It stars Christian Bale as Moses, Joel Edgerton (controversially) as Rhamses, Ben Kingsley as Hebrew elder Nun, Aaron Paul as Joshua, John Turturro as King Seti (Rhamses father) and a wee bit of Sigourney Weaver as Queen Tuya (Rhamses mother). And, again, the 20 minutes or so of the film screened clearly sold a big studio movie. Lots of action. Lots of CG plagues ravaging Egypt and lots of dramatic grandstanding by Edgerton and Bale. Well, perhaps »

‘Exodus’ Star Christian Bale on Playing Moses: ‘You Can’t Out-Heston Charlton Heston’

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox offered a peek at its “Exodus: Gods and Kings” for the media at the Zanuck Theater, where Christian Bale told the audience it’s very different from previous versions of the tale. “You can’t out-Heston Charlton Heston,” he deadpanned, adding that the Moses here is “a troubled and tumultuous man.”

The preview consisted of eight scenes from the film, adding up to 37 minutes. Producer Jenno Topping provided context between the scenes, and while she emphasized the complexity of Moses, the biggest take-away was the complexity of the production.

Judging by the footage, the Ridley Scott-helmed epic 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 with the depiction of four of the 10 plagues. (Spoiler alert: The locusts steal the show. »

David Fincher Offers Hope for Dragon Tattoo Sequel

15 September 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sony Pictures and director David Fincher have been developing the sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo for a couple of years already, but it has been slow moving. The sequel is called The Girl Who Played With Fire, and its script was written by Steve Zaillian. In case you were wondering what the status of this movie is, the director recently gave a brief hopeful update in an interview with Afton Bladet, saying:

"I think because it [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book."

It's good to hear that Fincher thinks they movie will eventually happen, and that the script has "huge potential." I'm really curious to see the "extremely" different changes they've made. I'm »

David Fincher Still Thinks There's Going to Be Another 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Movie

15 September 2014 2:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's good to dream. Which is exactly what director David Fincher seems to be doing when it comes to a proposed sequel to his 2011 thriller "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." The film came in like a sharp Swedish breeze, although it wasn't exactly the hit that Sony (or anyone else, for that matter) was expecting it would be, making just $102 million domestically on a production budget of at least that (plus marketing costs and whatever else goes along with launching a huge, starry, Oscar-contending tent pole). All of the principles involved in the film have pay-or-play deals in place, so even if the sequel, "The Girl Who Played with Fire," doesn't get made, they're still taking home fat checks (a screenplay by Steven Zaillian has been done for a while). But Fincher holds out hope.

David Fincher Reveals Hope for ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ Sequel

14 September 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” pulled in $232 million in 2011, there’s been no official confirmations that the next two books in the Stieg Larsson trilogy, “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and ‘The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Next,” will be adapted into English-language films (the Swedish versions came out in 2009). However, Fincher revealed recently that he has hope for the possibility.

The director said that Sony, the producer of “Dragon Tattoo,” would likely do “something” with the work that’s already been done on the sequels.

“I think because (Sony) already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script, it will result in something,” he told Swedish site Afton Bladet (via Film Divider, which provided translation), talking about Steven Zaillian’s screenplays.

Al Pacino Confirms That Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman Is Still Going Ahead

9 September 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Martin Scorsese’s got to be juicing. Or implementing a strict fitness regimen followed by bathing in the tears of virgins. This wiseguy is showing no signs of reducing his already prolific output. It’s been pretty much confirmed he’ll be tackling Silence as his next film, and after that, it looks like it could be the long-gestating mobster-epic The Irishman.

Development has slowed to an almost glacial pace – but don’t be fooled. That’s just the way it works sometimes, folks. This weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival, Al Pacino, who’s long-since been attached to co-star, revealed that it’s still pushing forward. Based on a script by Steve Zaillian, Pacino will join Robert DeNiro, Harvey Keitel, Joe Pesci and as he revealed to The Daily Beast: Bobby Cannavale. Seems Pacino was excited to talk about his working with Scorsese, but more importantly, another collaboration with DeNiro:

Toronto Spotlight: Fleming, ‘The Equalizer’ Helmer Antoine Fuqua Share Man Love For Denzel’s Killer Acting Skills

7 September 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Tonight in Toronto, Denzel Washington and his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua will launch a new franchise, The Equalizer, a drama loosely based on the TV series. Thankfully for fans of Washington’s action work, the film is a closer spiritual cousin to Man On Fire, with Washington playing a righteous character who is merciless on the bad guys. Here, Fuqua, who is also mounting a Magnificent Seven remake with Washington for MGM, discusses the star’s everyman appeal and what makes him capable of so many indelible performances.

Deadline: Watching The Equalizer made me feel like I’d gotten the Man On Fire sequel I never thought possible when John Creasy died after killing every kidnapper in Mexico. The spirit of the movie courses through The Equalizer. What is it about Denzel Washington killing bad guys that makes it feel like Christmas morning?

Fuqua: [Laughs]. I just think it’s »

20th Century Fox has released the first behind-the-scenes look at Ridley Scott’s latest epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings, which debuts this Christmas across cinemas worldwide.

Telling the story of Moses (Christian Bale, The Dark Knight Trilogy), the film is set to go almost head-to-head with the final Hobbit film this Christmas in the grandeur stakes, with Scott reteaming with Gladiator co-writer Steven Zaillian, as well as an eclectic supporting cast including Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Sigourney Weaver (Alien), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), John Turturro (Barton Fink), Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises) and Sir Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3).

So far, it certainly looks pretty epic, and with such a talented cast, it could be a big hit come winter, and you can check out the featurette below…

Exodus: Gods and Kings is released in the Us on December 12th, with a UK release on Boxing Day.

Bts Look at Ridley Scott’s Exodus Movie

4 September 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Opening in theaters on December 12, go behind the scenes in the making of 20th Century Fox’s epic Exodus: Gods And Kings from director Ridley Scott.

The Noah movie opened the floodgates for biblical movies at the beginning of 2014 and to some, a welcome visit back to the Golden Age of Hollywood.

With Exodus bowing at the end of the year during awards season, Scott solidifies his status among the ranks of those larger-than-life directors – David Lean, Cecil B. DeMilleWilliam Wyler, Joseph L. Mankiewicz – in his latest historical drama.

Casting is everything and with huge stars like Oscar-winners Christian Bale and Ben Kingsley, Oscar-nominee Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton, the filmmaker may find himself at Hollywood’s big party in February. Last time Scott went epic was in May 2000 when Gladiator opened in theaters and later went on to win five Oscars, including Best Picture, at the 73rd Academy Awards. »

Watch: Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods & Kings' Epic Gets First Featurette

4 September 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After director Ridley Scott didn't really say anything to address the complaints of a whitewashed cast for the Egyptian epic Exodus: Gods & Kings, a new featurette has come along with the filmmaker explaining why he wanted to make the film. If the first trailer wasn't enough to show off the large scope and epic nature of the film, then this featurette will get the job done. But that's mostly because everyone says "epic" about a dozen times in this short preview of the forthcoming winter release. It should make for quite the box office battle since The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters around the same time. Watch below! Here's the first featurette for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods & Kings, originally from Yahoo: Exodus: Gods and Kings is directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Robin Hood, Alien, Blade Runner) and written by Adam Cooper & Bill Collage (Tower Heist, »

Wamg Interview: John Turturro – Writer, Director, and Star of Fading Gigolo

20 August 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Interview conducted by Tom Stockman August 14th, 2014

Despite his appearance and the roles you’ve often seen him in before, it turns out that actor John Turturro is one sexy stud! In Fading Gigolo he’s nothing like the nervous genius he played in Quiz Show, or the angry hothead from Do The Right Thing, or that weasel Bernie Bernbaum he played in Miller’S Crossing. No, in Fading Gigolo, which Turturro wrote, directed, and starred in, he played Fioravante, an honest-to-goodness gigolo whose eagerly-paying clientele include Sofia Vergara and Sharon Stone! With Woody Allen as Murray, his unlikely pimp, Fading Gigolo sounds like the most oddball vanity project project to come down the pike in decades. But Fading Gigolo was a funny, gentle, and surprisingly sensitive comedy with a witty script, amusing characters and a jazzy sense of life in New York that felt like an old-fashioned Woody Allen movie, »

Author Gillian Flynn discusses the 'disassembling' of her 'Gone Girl'

24 July 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With the first wave of festival announcements out of the way, it appears to me the sexiest get of them all is New York's opening night selection of David Fincher's "Gone Girl." Fincher has danced with the awards season with his last few films and this one is probably his most hotly anticipated effort in a while, given that it's an adaptation of an immensely popular novel. Indeed, author Gillian Flynn even came on board to pen the adaptation herself, which isn't typical but may have been shrewd in this case; fans will be clamoring to see how the twisting and turning novel has been transitioned to the screen, and having a familiar name talking it up along the way will be beneficial. The book was really destined for theaters, because as Flynn reveals in a recent interview with the Film Society of Lincoln Center (who puts on the »

Ridley Scott Gets The Devil In The Kitchen

18 July 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When chef Marco Pierre White published his autobiography in 2006, his infamously tumultuous life was guaranteed to be a dramatic read. Originally titled White Slave, the book was released in America under the new moniker, The Devil In The Kitchen, and readers were not disappointed. Now, it seems the story of the man widely regarded as the first ‘celebrity chef’ may be headed for the screen, as Ridley Scott, Giannina Facio and Colet Abedi have optioned the work for development.

Following the man from his humble and tragic beginnings in Leeds, UK, to the height of fame and fortune at the centre of London’s restaurant scene, The Devil In The Kitchen depicts the genesis of “the godfather of modern cooking.” Earning his stripes from some of the best chefs in the country, such as Albert Roux and Raymond Blanc, White himself would go on to train Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal, »

First Trailer & Posters for Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings with Christian Bale & Joel Edgerton

9 July 2014 1:45 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Following an Oscar nod for his work on American Hustle last year, Christian Bale could well be in line for similar recognition this December when Ridley Scott unveils his biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings.

The film is set to retell the story of Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, and is sure to have one of the biggest scopes of any film this year.

Joel Edgerton and Aaron Paul top the ensemble cast as Rhamses and Joshua, respectively, with John Turturro, Ben Kingsley, and Sigourney Weaver rounding out the rest.

Scott is directing from a script first co-written by Bill Coolage and Adam Cooper (Assassin’s Creed, Tower Heist), with Oscar winner Steven Zaillian (Moneyball, Schindler’s List) hired to do a subsequent rewrite.

Scott is coming off the back of The Counselor, received with mixed reviews last year. Before that, it was the equally-mixed Prometheus, so »

'Exodus: Gods And Kings' Trailer: Christian Bale Is Moses

8 July 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings is one of the many bible epics that's set to hit the big screen in the near future. 20th Century Fox finally released the first trailer for the December-release, featuring Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Ramses. Check it out below.

The story of Moses has been adapted before – most brilliantly by Cecil B. DeMille in 1956's The Ten Commandments, which I watched religiously as a kid (call me crazy) – and some of you might be dismissing this film because of its bible roots. But this is a Ridley Scott production and here's what can be said about this short teaser: if anything, it'll be visually stunning. For some reason, the trailer only focuses on Moses relationship with Ramses (them growing up like brothers), and holds back from what came later – Moses taking the people of Israel out of Egypt's bondage. »
