New Images Arrive From 'The Hobbit 3,' 'Exodus,' 'Goosebumps' & Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck'

18 July 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With summer starting to wrap up (after "Guardians Of The Galaxy" in two weeks, blockbusters get considerably thinner on the ground), it's time to start looking even further ahead to big movies planned for the fall, or even for next summer. And happily, with Comic-Con just around the corner, the studios have obliged, releasing a slew of images for some new upcoming movies. First up is "Exodus: Gods & Kings," Ridley Scott's first attempt at the Biblical epic. The first live-action big-screen version of the story of Moses since "The Ten Commandments," Scott's picture is taking the big-budget "Gladiator"-style approach, but has drawn controversy due to casting Caucasian actors in Jewish and Egyptian roles, and for casting Australian actor Joel Edgerton as a tangerine with eyebrows drawn on with a magic marker. Christian Bale, Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Mendelsohn and Indira Varma star alongside Edgerton, »

EOne Goes Toe to Toe With Hollywood Majors in U.K.

15 July 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Entertainment One is well-placed to retain its position as the U.K.’s top independent distributor after a strong first half of the year, and a muscular slate for the remaining months. But, as Alex Hamilton, managing director, eOne Films U.K., tells Variety, the company has aspirations to be considered on a par with the Hollywood majors.

EOne has been the top indie in the U.K. for three of the past four years, and last year finished ahead of two studios, Sony and Paramount, with its box office totaling more than £100 million ($171 million) for the first time.

The distrib’s slate for first six months of 2014 included “12 Years a Slave,” which took over $34.3 million at the U.K. box office, “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Divergent.”

Upcoming pics for 2014 include Daniel Radcliffe starrer “What If,” David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars” and Jake Gyllenhaal starrer “Nightcrawler.” 2015 will »

6 Best & 6 Worst Historical Movie Epics Of The 2000s

15 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings landed earlier this week, and it certainly seems like a return to familiar territory for the veteran director, who has helmed several big-budget epics over the last decade. While the trailer itself was a little underwhelming, it did boast the stunning visuals we’ve come to expect from Ridley Scott movie and an impressive cast led by Christian Bale that also features Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver.

Ever since the director resurrected the genre with Gladiator at the turn of the millennium, the historical epic has had a patchy track record at the box office to say the least, and it remains to be seen how his latest effort will fare. Exodus will need to be a great movie to stand any chance of commercial success, with a release »

Joel Edgerton Does A Very Bad Thing In Trailer To Felony

13 July 2014 9:57 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Above is the first trailer for Felony, the latest Australian film featuring Joel Edgerton. Written by Edgerton and director Matthew Saville, the film concerns a cop who accidentally hits a boy in a car accident and attempts to cover up his involvement. Tom Wilkinson and Jail Courtney are the two cops who have to investigate, but one of them wants to go easy, and the other wants to get to the bottom of a troubling case. The trailer showcases a pretty tense battle of wits, as well as a few potential... spoilers? Edgerton's cop tells his wife (Melissa George) and, naturally, she is not happy. And Tom Wilkinson eventually finds out, but recognizes Edgerton as a good cop, but he doesn't want to press further. It's Jai Courtney, using his normal Australian accent, who wants to push things forward. Oh, Jai Courtney, always making things worse. If you aren't making »

Ridley Scott’s Moses, a Wrathful God Strikes in New Trailer (watch)

Ridley Scott’s Moses, played by Christian Bale in a new trailer for the movie “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” is far different than character play be Charlton Heston Will the public buy it? Although Heston starred in Cecil B. DeMille’s groundbreaking “The Ten Commandments” in 1956, the film should still be familiar to today’s moviegoers. Now Bale is stepping into Heston's role and Joel Edgerton will tackle Rameses II. But 20th Century Fox wisely steered clear of mentioning Moses in the title. Instead we get "Exodus: Gods and Kings."

Christian Bale Robes Up as Moses in Exodus: Gods and Kings Trailer—Watch Now!

9 July 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cinematic Moses is back and better than ever! But the first thing you'll notice in the Exodus: God and Kings action-packed trailer is this biblical epic film is a far cry from the silver-screen classic The Ten Commandments. Secondly, Christian Bale—who plays the Egyptian prince-turned-prophet leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt—is no Charlton Heston revealing the Decalogue on two stone tablets handed to him by God. Oh no. This account goes all Old Testament and badass on us, choosing instead to focus on muscular physiques, a fire and brimstoned Egypt and most importantly, the battle between Moses and Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton). The two "grew up together, close as »

Ridley Scott Says Exodus: Gods And Kings Is His Biggest Film Yet; Talks Using VFX to Create a Massive Scope

9 July 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Yesterday, the first trailer debuted for director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings.  The film certainly looks to be massive in scale with striking visuals, but the overall response was a bit mixed.  Some loved what they saw, others were more dubious.  Regardless, the pic is shaping up to be one of the biggest of the year, with Christian Bale taking on the role of Moses and Joel Edgerton playing Ramses in Scott’s iteration of the well-worn story.  The trailer showed brief glimpses of the plagues and the parting of the Red Sea, once again teasing the ginormous scale of the pic, and Scott recently took the time to discuss the film in more detail. Scott admits that this is very likely the largest budgeted film he’s ever worked on, going on to talk about his approach to the pic’s visual palate and extensive visual effects. »

Trailer & Posters For Ridley Scott’s Biblical ‘Exodus: Gods And Kings’ Unleashed

9 July 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After a very disappointing collaboration with novelist Cormac McCarthy on The Counsellor last year, Ridley Scott is back to his epic ways of film-making with Exodus: Gods And Kings. Starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, the film is based on the exodus of The Israelites from Egypt led by Moses, and it also relates to The Old Testament Book Of Exodus.

From what the trailer shows, Ridley Scott seems to be on very firm ground as he dramatises the battle between Moses and Ramses II. Christian Bale dons an impressive beard as he plays Moses, while The Great Gatsby’s Joel Edgerton makes an astonishing transformation as Ramses II and with no Whitney Huston-esque soundtrack in sight though like 1998′s The Prince Of Egypt – which is probably a good thing!

Here’s that trailer and scroll down for the posters – which may need a little work before the film is »

Ridley Scott Talks Through ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Trailer and Digital Magic (Videos)

9 July 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's been a while since Ridley Scott's epic "Gladiator" took home the Best Picture Oscar back in 2001. Anyone who’s seen that or "Kingdom of Heaven" or "Robin Hood" can easily conjure the look, feel and scale of Scott's return to the sword-and-sandal genre with the Biblical "Exodus: Gods and Kings."  Lo and behold, see the first trailer below (the poster definitely reaches for a "300" feel).  Whatever you think of the trailer --  Christian Bale in gravel-voice mode vs. bald Joel Edgerton as Ramses as brother-vs-brother, white actors playing Middle Easterners for the millionth time —check out this Empire feature offering a behind-the-scenes look at what Scott has planned. We love it when a technology-obsessed director talks about digital landscapes interacting with physical objects, the use of digital, and other related material. Though Fox tore the official preview off YouTube, Variety has it »

Check Out Trailers for Exodus: Gods and Kings & Gone Girl

9 July 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A pair of movie trailers for some upcoming high profile films have recently been released, so I decided it'd be easier to lump them both together into one convenient spot for you guys to check them out.  Come inside to see the first trailer for Ridley Scott's upcoming Biblical epic, and an all new trailer for David Fincher's incredible looking Gone Girl.

I'm going to kick this off with the first trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings, which landed later last night.  Yesterday also saw the release of the first posters for the upcoming Ridley Scott film...and I hated them.  I mean, really and truly, I feel they are some of the worst movie posters I've seen in a long time (and I get a ton of Indie ones in my inbox).  I was hoping the trailer would banish those posters by blowing me away, but that's not the case. »

Holy Moses! Christian Bale gets biblical in Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer

9 July 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

2014 is the year of the Bible.  After March’s Flood tale Noah saw a drenched Russell Crowe and Emma Watson fight for survival, another story from the Old Testament is parting the Red Sea and heading to theatres in December.

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings sees Christian Bale as Moses squaring off against his adopted brother Ramses played by an unrecognizable Joel Edgerton.  The 3D film covers the familiar story of the brothers-turned-enemies as Moses rises up against the Pharaoh Ramses in his quest to set 600,000 slaves free while the deadly plagues rain down on Egypt.

Edgerton gives his best Yul Brenner impression while a bearded Bale shows he’s adept at riding a horse and wielding a sword in the heat of battle.    The trailer certainly gives new meaning to the term “epic” and is exactly what we have come to expect from the director of Gladiator and Prometheus. »

The Trailer For Exodus: Gods and Kings Introduces Christian Bale as Sexy Moses

9 July 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | 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 in the first 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've heard anything 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. I'm digging the special effects here, and I can't wait to see Aaron Paul as Joshua, plus more of Sigourney Weaver. The movie opens Dec. 12, and take a look at the trailer now.

The 'Exodus' Trailer Is Unsurprisingly Epic and Visually Stunning (Video)

9 July 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ridley Scott is channeling Cecil B. DeMille in this first trailer for "Exodus: Gods and Kings," the Old Testament saga about Moses and Rhamses. It looks epic, if epic weren't a word rendered nearly meaningless from use by overenthusiastic bloggers and/or "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," but what else can you say about the story of Moses leading the slaves out of Egypt?

The budget for spray tanning Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton alone must have been astronomical! Edgerton is barely recognizable as a sort of 20th century Yul Brynner in his get-up, because if you want to cast someone who looks like an Egyptian king, it makes total sense to cast a white Australian dude. At least Bale could sort of pass for Semitic. (In any case, he'd be welcome at our synagogue any day.) In any case, Sigourney Weaver looks awesome and terrifying as Queen Tuya, a »
