Exodus: Gods And Kings Trailer Is Unleashed

12 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 »

Ridley Scott Explains Why He Hired White Actors for Exodus: Gods and Kings

20 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

One question that keeps coming up regarding Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is why are white actors playing Egyptian characters, like Joel Edgerton as Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II. In a new interview with Scott, Variety brought up the question again. The director replied: "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." That's a very direct reply, but is also a very honest one. To reach the widest audience and to secure an investment that is likely over $100 million, studios must get the most popular actors. And in this case, those actors happen to be Edgerton and Christian Bale. »

Thanksgiving Trailer for Exodus: Gods And Kings Is Undeniably Epic

27 November 2014 5:43 PM, PST | 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."

Ridley Scott Explains Why There Are Mostly White People In Exodus: Gods And Kings

26 November 2014 1:47 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In case you were beginning to forget that Exodus: Gods and Kings is a movie about ancient Egyptians featuring a cast made up of mostly white Anglo-European actors, Ridley Scott is here to remind you in the crassest way possible. Speaking to Variety (via The Playlist) about his reasons for casting folks like Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, Scott departed from his usual “it’s totally historically accurate” narrative to state the following about the issue at hand:

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.

Thank you, Ridley, for being so diplomatic.

Ridley Scott Talks 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Casting and His Brother Tony Scott

26 November 2014 12:21 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There has been a lot of online scrutiny heaped onto Exodus: Gods and Kings even before anyone has had the chance to see it. This comes from the fact that Moses (Christian Bale), Ramses (Joel Edgerton), and other biblical figures will be portrayed by caucasian performers of American, British, and Australian nationality rather than actual Persian actors. Personally, I agree it is a problem, and there should be more of an effort to cast non-white actors (and this is not exclusive to this film). Director Ridley Scott talked about the controversy with Variety, and... well... he did not do himself any favors with his response. "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," Scott says. "I'm just not going to get it financed. So the question doesn't even come up. »

Ridley Scott Says 'Exodus' Would Never Get Financed Starring "Mohammad So-and-So From Such-And-Such”

26 November 2014 10:51 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ever since the marketing campaign for "Exodus: Gods And Kings" rolled out a small but not insignificant chorus has risen, mostly online, about the casting of Ridley Scott's Biblical epic. Essentially, there have been complaints that the film features a distinct lack of ethnic actors from the region, and instead relies on A-list actors slotting in roles of Moses, Ramses, and more. While he vaguely addressed the issue over the summer, with the movie due in theaters soon, Scott has become much more candid about why he cast Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton over an actor more representative for those roles (or any of the secondary players). “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,” Scott told Variety. “I’m just not going to get it financed. »

Ridley Scott Explains Exodus’s Whitewashing

26 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Ridley Scott's upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings has an awfully white cast for a movie set in ancient Egypt: Christian Bale plays Moses, Joel Edgerton plays Ramses, Aaron Paul plays Joshua, and Sigourney Weaver plays Tuya. But Scott says he has a perfectly good explanation for the whitewashing. "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," the director tells Variety. "I'm just not going to get it financed. So the question doesn't even come up." Well, there you have it. Better luck next time, all actors who were apparently never even considered. »

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 »

Ridley Scott on Exodus ethnic casting controversy: 'It's about financing'

25 November 2014 3:42 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sir Ridley Scott has once again responded to criticism of a perceived lack of ethnic diversity in the cast of his movie Exodus: Gods and Kings.

The upcoming biblical epic has been the subject of the social media hashtag '#BoycottExodusMovie' for Scott's decision to cast mostly white actors in key roles.

Exodus: Gods and Kings will see Christian Bale playing Moses, Joel Edgerton portraying Ramesses II and Aaron Paul as Joshua.

Scott previously attempted to answer his critics in August by insisting that his film will represent a "a confluence of cultures".

"There are many different theories about the ethnicity of the Egyptian people, and we had a lot of discussions about how to best represent the culture," he said at the time.

The filmmaker once again addressed the controversy in an interview with Variety, acknowledging that budgetary concerns also necessitated the casting of major Hollywood stars.

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Director Ridley Scott on Creating His Vision of Moses

25 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The ideal place to meet Ridley Scott would be on a raging battlefield, in the furthest reaches of outer space, or in the midst of any of the other vast canvases on which he creates his movies.

Instead, we’re sitting in a basement salon at London’s trendy Ham Yard Hotel, where the 76-year-old director has parked himself, however briefly, to discuss his new biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” and to ruminate on his long career.

“You’re probably going to be sitting down, so you’re not going to get a proper sense of him,” actor Christian Bale, who stars in Scott’s new film as Moses, warned this reporter a few days earlier. “You’ve got to see Rid on the move to understand him. He’s totally kinetic. I’m absolutely sure he springs out of bed at 10 times the speed I do.”
