First-Look Image: Christian Bale in Ridley Scott’s Exodus

31 December 2013 7:18 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Darren Aronofsky’s Noah isn’t the only biblical epic to hit the big screens next year, with Ridley Scott’s Exodus arriving in cinemas right at the end of the year.

Its positioning in December 2014 suggests that Fox is eyeing it as an awards contender. And whilst we await the first footage from the film to surface, the first shot of Christian Bale in the lead as Moses has surfaced, via Empire.

Bale is joined by a terrific cast, led by Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro, and Ben Kingsley.

Scott, who has been firing on all cylinders across a slew of genres in recent years, directs from a script penned by Steven Zaillian (Moneyball, Schindler’s List) and Bill Collage and Adam Cooper (Tower Heist).

Exodus will be released in the UK on 5th December, before heading to the Us a week later on December 12th, »

First Look at Christian Bale in Exodus from Director Ridley Scott

30 December 2013 10:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Empire magazine keeps bringing the goods for its 25th Anniversary issue. This morning, they are debuting a first look at Exodus from Prometheus director Ridley Scott. Christian Bale stars in this biblical thriller as Moses, the prophet and exodus leader, seen here in his formative days as the adoptive prince of Egypt.

In this historical drama, baby Moses is found in the bulrushes after his desperate mom abandons her only son, fearing orders from a powerful Pharaoh to murder all male newborns amongst the slaves. Moses is found by the Pharaoh's daughter and raised alongside royalty. A burning bush speaks to Moses in his later years, convincing the future prophet to serve the voice of God and lead the Israelite slaves to freedom. In doing this, he parts the Red Sea and partakes in a 40-year trek through the desert wastelands.

The film is loosely based on the 1956 drama The Ten Commandments starring Charlton Heston, »

First Image from Ridley Scott’s Exodus Starring Christian Bale as Moses

30 December 2013 9:04 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ridley Scott loves hopping between genres.  In the past five years alone, he went from a spy thriller (Body of Lies) to a medieval action movie (Robin Hood) to a sci-fi flick (Prometheus) to nihilistic drama (The Counselor) and now he's going to a biblical epic with Exodus.  Adapted from some book called "The Bible", the story follows Moses (Christian Bale) trying to free his enslaved people from their ancient Egyptian rulers.  The first image shows us Moses in his pampered days as an adopted member of the royal family, but it doesn't really tell us much about the film as a whole.  The movie will certainly be big, but I'm wondering how Scott plans to give it a fresh angle, or if this is just going to come off as Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments with a 21st-century visual effects polish. Hit the jump to check out the image. »

First Look: Christian Bale as Moses in Ridley Scott's Biblical 'Exodus'

30 December 2013 8:14 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In what might be the first time we've seen the Biblical figure of Moses without long hair, the first look photo from Ridley Scott's epic Exodus has arrived with a glimpse at Christian Bale as the man who speaks to a burning bush. It's a simple photo featuring Bale atop a horse as the slaves of the Pharaoh Rhamses II (Joel Edgerton) build monuments in the desert. Scott's film will follow Moses from his near death as an infant to his adoption into the Egyptian royal family, as well as his defiance of the Pharaoh and deliverance of the Hebrews from enslavement. Are we looking at a return to awards season worthiness for Scott? Look! Here's the first photo from Ridley Scott's Exodus from Empire: Exodus is directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Robin Hood, Alien, Blade Runner) and written by Adam Cooper & Bill Collage (Tower Heist, Accepted), with »

First Look At Christian Bale As Moses In Ridley Scott’s Exodus

30 December 2013 7:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After hanging up the cape and cowl, Christian Bale has gone on to do some excellent work. His first post-Batman role was in Out of the Furnace, and while the film itself wasn’t too well received, the actor’s performance was heavily praised. Following that he showed up in American Hustle, which is set to be a heavy hitter come Oscar night and might even earn Bale a Best Actor nod.

Currently, he’s working on Ridley Scott’s Exodus and today, we have our first look (seen above) at the actor in the lead role, that of Moses. Co-starring Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver, the film will tell the Biblical story of the same name, which sees Moses leading his people out of Egypt and receiving the ten commandments.

Seeing as The Counselor bombed and Prometheus disappointed, Scott is in desperate need of a hit. »

Christian Bale as Moses in 'Exodus': First Look (Photo)

30 December 2013 7:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Empire has our first look at Ridley Scott's "Exodus," and judging by the impressive construction going on behind Christian Bale's Moses, this Biblical tale should be epic indeed.

The film follows the story of Moses, abandoned as a baby and adopted by Egyptian royalty, only to hear the voice of God as he grows older and ultimately lead the Israelite slaves into the promised land. In this image, Moses witnesses the suffering of his people at the hands of the Pharaoh.

Along with Bale, "Exodus" stars Joel Edgerton as Pharaoh Ramses, John Turturro as Ramses's father Seti, Sigourney Weaver as Ramses's mother Tuya, Aaron Paul as Hebrew slave Joshua, and Ben Kingsley. Empire reports that the film is looking to echo the massive scale of the classic sword and sandals epics of the 1960s, and has apparently cast thousands of extras.

"Exodus" is expected in theaters December 12, 2014.

First Look: Christian Bale In Ridley Scott's 'Exodus'

30 December 2013 6:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

From a grizzled factory worker trying to make ends meet and keep his brother on the straight and narrow in "Out Of The Furnace" to a paunchy con man in "American Hustle," Christian Bale has once again shown his chameleon-like approach in two movies released within weeks of each other. And if you need more proof of the man's ability to shape-shift as the role permits, here's further evidence. The first official image from Ridley Scott's "Exodus" has arrived, featuring Bale riding high atop a horse as Moses. The Adam CooperBill Collage and Steve Zaillian penned movie features a stacked cast (Joel EdgertonAaron PaulBen Kingsley, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver) and will tell the story of the man who spoke to a burning bush, brought down the ten commandments on a stone tablet and parted the Red Sea, among many other things.

First official image of Christian Bale in Ridley Scott's biblical epic Exodus

So far we've seen a few set pics from Ridley Scott's new biblical epic Exodus showing a Robin Hood-esque Christian Bale who is playing Moses in the cinematic retelling and Joel Edgerton in Egyptian Pharoah attire as Ramses, but nothing official has surfaced until now. Following on the heels of Darren Aronofsky's own biblical epic, Noah, Scott's film tackles the tale of Moses and Ramses' rivalry, which led to the parting of the red sea and the Ten Commandments. It's one of the more popular »

We're getting mighty serious on the fifth day of our 10-part series previewing the key movies of 2014

• 2014 in film preview - comedy

• 2014 in film preview - sci-fi

• 2014 in film preview - Oscar contenders

Jane Got a Gun

This one's already been pretty dramatic, what with most of the cast quitting and then director Lynne Ramsay departing the project on unamicable terms. So it'll be interesting to see what this femme western actually ends up looking like. Natalie Portman slings the guns, Rodrigo Santoro, Ewan McGregor and Joel Edgerton help and hinder, Gavin O'Connor is the sheriff/director who took over from Ramsay.

Released in the Us on 29 August

Two Days, One Night

Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardennes aren't straying far from the comfort zone with this latest: also set in that grim bit of Belgium, also featuring Olivier Gourmet. The addition is Marion Cotillard, playing a »

Aacta International Awards under fire

15 December 2013 4:55 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The decision by the AFI/Aacta to maintain seven awards for non-Australian films while combining the best TV comedy and best light entertainment series into one category has been challenged by several producers.

They question why money and resources are being poured into the Aacta International Awards in Los Angeles when the AFI/Aacta is struggling financially due to lack of sponsorship and screen industry support.

Other producers defend the International Awards as a way for the organisation to build the brand and strive to make the awards more valuable to private and government sponsors

AFI/Aacta CEO Damian Trewhella tells If it is simplistic and wrong to believe that ditching the international categories would free up more money for the Australian awards. He says the international awards subsidise the Oz awards.

Producer Anthony Buckley decries .the absurd pomposity of seven international awards. while financial constraints forced the organisation to »

Australian Awards Laud ‘American Hustle’

13 December 2013 5:18 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong — The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts has given pride of place in its international awards category to David O. Russell’s “American Hustle.” The picture was nominated in seven categories, including best film, ahead of “12 Years A Slave” with six nominations.

The Aacta international awards are separate from the organization’s domestic awards for Australian film and TV works, and are intended to be part of the Oscar race. The winners will be revealed in Los Angeles on Friday Jan. 10, 2014, less than a week ahead of the Academy Award nominations announcement on Jan. 16.

“Australian performers and practitioners are consistently acknowledged as among the world’s best screen talent by international screen organizations such as AMPAS and BAFTA. It is vital that the Australian screen industry participates in this global conversation and has an opportunity to recognize the talents of both local and international peers,” said Damian Trewhella, »
