Sydney drugs cop Mal Toohey (Joel Edgerton, who also wrote the script) is saved from a rap by fellow officer Carl Summer (Tom Wilkinson) when he runs over a small child after celebrating a successful dope bust. However, Summer's young partner Jim Melic (Jai Courtney) doesn't like what he sees and decides to push for a full examination of the accident. An intriguing glimpse into a moral minefield where old-fashioned guilt seems set to emerge as the dominant force. »
A new featurette for Exodus: Gods and Kings has come our way, giving a behind the scenes look at the expansive locations which will bring the biblical epic to life. Ridley Scott's return to the sword and sandal epic is something that has me really excited, and add the impressive cast, including Christian Bale, Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Ben Kingsley, and Sigourney Weaver, to the spectacular sets, it should be nothing short of stunning. Released: December 12th USA / December 26th Ireland & UK »

After last week’s news about Netflix securing The Blacklist for a record fee, a similar story came to light this week concerning the pre Batman prequel series Gotham. Now rather than getting it day and date after Us broadcast as per Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn, Gotham’s entire run will just arrive on Netflix after it’s finished its TV broadcast. Worse news is that this means you have to wait for Channel 5 to get their finger out and schedule it on one of their three channels and then muck it around the schedule just to confuse you further and for it to finish its run there. Kind of takes the wind out the sails doesn’t it? I wouldn’t expect to see Gotham on Netflix until this time next year at best but we will see.
In better news David Wain’s relatively well »

Ridley Scott is a moviemaking machine as he enters the latter stages of his 70s, and the man who gave us titles like Gladiator is ready to unleash another big-budget period epic with his newest feature Exodus: Gods and Kings. That’s right, the man behind Blade Runner is about to get biblical on you. Yahoo! Movies scored an interesting new behind-the-scenes clip that reveals the massive scope of Scott’s newest venture. The director takes us backstage and on location to show us Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton as Moses and Ramses, two brothers who have a falling out that leads to war. As is to be expected in a Ridley Scott joint, Exodus has some enormous sets, gigantic set pieces, and an action-oriented approach to the classic story that might lure in the less...

Although the crime thriller Felony premiered in its native Australia (as well as premiering at last year’s Tiff), the United States have still not been favored with the film, which stars Joel Edgerton, Tom Wilkinson, and Jai Courtney. This has at last been remedied, and we’re finally going to see it stateside in October. Before then though, we have to be reminded what it’s about, hence a Us trailer that introduces us to the players in what looks like a complicated game.
Felony stars Edgerton as decorated cop Malcolm Toohey, who becomes involved in a tragic accident that puts a young boy in a coma. He’s not quite certain what happened (the trailer makes it look like perhaps he was driving home having had one too many), but his superior Carl Summer (Tom Wilkinson) decides to cover up the truth. Enter Courtney as Jim Melic, a »

A full year after debuting at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, the Australian thriller Felony is poised to hit theaters in the United States this fall. Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Animal Kingdom) wrote the film and stars in the story of a detective trying to hide a drunk driving accident after celebrating a major drug bust earlier in the day. One of his colleagues (Tom Wilkinson) tries to cover up the truth while another (Jai Coutney) is intent on finding out what really happened. This doesn't look half-bad, and Jai Courtney actually seems like a decent actor when he's using his native Australian accent. Watch the trailer! Here's the Us trailer for Matthew Saville's Felony from YouTube: Watch the much different trailer for the release of Felony in Australia right here. Felony is directed by Australian filmmaker Matthew Saville, from a screenplay written by actor/producer Joel Edgerton, »

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…

Australian character actor Joel Edgerton has made a real name for himself in the States over these past few years, starting with his performance in the Australian crime drama/thriller Animal Kingdom. Edgerton recently wrote the story for The Rover – Guy Pearce’s post-apocalyptic crime/drama that released in theaters earlier this year – and he penned the script for another Australian film project: Felony, the upcoming cops/crime morality tale, which also features Edgerton as the headliner.
Felony, as the above trailer illustrates, revolves around Malcolm Toohey (Edgerton), a detective who’d recently been celebrated for his heroism, when he accidentally hits an under-age bicyclist with his car – leaving its young rider in a coma – and does not confess to the act.
Malcolm thereafter finds himself being investigated by one detective, even as another one does his best to make sure the evidence ...

Comedy A Month of Sundays will be the next film from the production arm of distributor Madman.
While Felony was not written by Saville – lead actor Joel Edgerton was the writer – he will direct A Month of Sundays from his own script, which draws on personal experience: his father was a real estate agent and so is this film’s lead character, to be played by Anthony Lapaglia.

William Hurt and Alice Braga have joined the cast of revenge thriller “By Way of Helena,” which also stars Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson. WestEnd Films has boarded the film as international sales agent, and will be introducing the film to buyers at Toronto.
The pic is the sophomore feature of director Kieran Darcy-Smith, whose 2012 thriller, “Wish You Were Here,” starred Joel Edgerton. That film played Sundance and subsequently scooped up several awards in Darcy-Smith’s native Australia.
Set in the Great Plains of 1880s, Texas Ranger David (Hemsworth) is sent to the secretive and isolated town of Mount Hermon to investigate the murders and disappearances of the local population. Elusive, charismatic and unsettling preacher Abraham (Harrelson) seems to be holding all the townsfolk in some kind of fearful grip — and he and David go back further than anyone realizes. »

When an Australian tourist disappears in Cambodia, his companions have reason not to tell the whole truth to the authorities. But on returning to Sydney, the unsolved mystery begins to take a deep emotional toll on them all. Abetted by an in-demand Antipodean cast - Joel Edgerton, Teresa Palmer, Banshee's Antony Starr and co-writer Felicity Price - actor Kieran Darcy-Smith makes an impressive directing debut with this evocative psychological drama. »
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. DeMille, William 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. »

The movie is set to be released on December 12th.

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings has at least one sure thing going for it: Christian Bale. If you’re a little uncertain about Biblical adaptations or Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty) as an Egyptian pharaoh, you know you can still trust in The Batman.
Bale leads an all-star cast -- Edgerton, “Breaking Bad”’s Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver (reuniting with Ridley for an Alien reunion), Ben Kingsley, and John Turturro. Featuring thousands of extras, Scott’s reimagining of the story of Moses is an ambitious project with a budget to match. It’s Ridley’s most expensive film yet – and he madePrometheus.
Interested in weird movie trivia? Well, Val Kilmer, who also played Batman, previously starred in The Prince of Egypt as Moses, and Exodus’ Ben Kingsley also played the titular character in 1995’s Moses!
Now it’s Bale’s turn.

Ridley Scott is about to get Biblical, and we.ve got an awesome sneak peek behind the scenes of the Prometheus filmmaker.s upcoming epic Exodus: Gods and Kings to prove it. Yahoo! Movies scored this amazing featurette showing the 76-year-old director hard at work bringing the story of Moses to the big screen. Scott has a penchant for doing sprawling, bombastic features, and his latest looks to be on par with some of his most epic creations. The clip is just over 90 seconds long, so it doesn.t get nearly as in-depth as I would have liked, but Ridley Scott uses the time to lay the foundation for his vision. Exodus: Gods and Kings will retell the tale of Moses and his brother Ramses (Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, respectively), a relationship that eventually soured to the point of all out war. During the brief preview, we get to »
Ridley Scott’s return to the sword and sandals epic has been a long time coming. Following the director’s seminal and indeed award-winning rendition of ancient Rome with Gladiator in 2000, Scott is planning to transition the biblical story of Moses onto the silver screen with Exodus: Gods and Kings — a feat that hasn’t been achieved for over fifty years.
And, with less than three months until its release, Yahoo Movies has published a behind-the-scenes featurette of the film, which features Scott and Arthur Max — who serves as production designer on the project — discussing the trials and tribulations of filming this most epic tale.
Undoubtedly, the focal point of Exodus: Gods and Kings is Moses’ (Christian Bale) relationship with his brother — the Pharoah Ramses, who will be embodied by Joel Edgerton. After defying Ramses and freeing over 60,000 slaves, Moses leads the former prisoners on a harrowing journey through Egypt which, »

Of all the big movies coming our way this fall, the one that looks the most potentially dicey is "Exodus: Gods And Kings," Ridley Scott's grand-scale retelling of the story of Moses. In theory, the idea of the director of "Gladiator" working with his biggest-ever budget for the first live-action take on the tale in fifty years should be an enticing one, especially with a cast including Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro, Ben Mendelsohn and Ben Kingsley. But footage has underwhelmed so far, and the film's been (correctly) beset by the decision to cast mostly caucasian actors in Middle Eastern roles, including Edgerton done up in make-up that we can only describe as Clementine Face (the Australian actor has expressed sympathy with the outcry, saying in a recent interview, "I do understand and empathize with that position," presumably while simultaneously trying to wash fake »

Director: David Michôd. Writers: Joel Edgerton and David Michôd. Cast: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson and Scoot McNairy. The Rover is the second feature from director David Michôd. This film also debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, in 2014 and Michôd's latest is set in a chaotic environment. Ten years after the global apocalypse, characters have devolved in the Australian outback. An unsettling soundtrack hopes to create even more chaos as a strange duo looks for a group of car thieves. This duo does not speed through the story, with the pacing requiring a bit of patience. Still, the characters Eric (Guy Pearce) and Rey (Robert Pattinson) keep the film enthralling. The Rover is one post-apocalyptic thriller that offers tension through its mininamlist approach to storytelling. The film begins with one man in a rundown tavern. A car crash takes place outside and several men steal a nearby vehicle. This vehicle belongs »
