Ridley Scott Addresses 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Race Controversy

6 hours ago | 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 Exodus’s Whitewashing

16 hours ago | 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 addresses the casting choices in Exodus: Gods and Kings

19 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

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.

Christian Bale Gets Romantic and Joel Edgerton Gets Angry in 2 New Exodus: Gods And Kings Clips; Plus New Featurette

24 November 2014 12:59 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox just released a brand new Exodus: Gods and Kings featurette in which director Ridley Scott states the obvious, that his latest is epic in scale, but the studio also just unveiled two new clips that offer up a taste of some of the quieter, more intimate moments of the film.  The first gives us our first good look at Maria Valverde’s Zipporah as she runs through what makes Moses (Christian Bale) happy – while her bracelets jingle incessantly – and then the second shows what happens when you lie to Ramses (Joel Edgerton). They’re both quality clips, but I also can’t say there’s anything particularly mind-blowing about them that’ll have you eager to see the film as soon as it comes out.  Hit the jump to check out both Exodus: Gods and Kings clips as well as that aforementioned featurette.  The film hits theaters »

21 November 2014 3:32 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et delved into the making of Ridley Scott's upcoming biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, going behind the scenes with the film's star Christian Bale.

Pics: Go on Set with the Year's Most Anticipated Films

"I laughed when [Ridley] first told me about it," Bale said. "I said, 'Moses? Like, with the hair and the sandals and the sand? Like Moses Moses?' And he said, 'Yep.' 'Okay, alright.' That seemed like a ridiculous challenge, and I love ridiculous challenges."

For an actor, there's no bigger challenge than portraying a biblical character, especially when you didn't grow up in Sunday School.

"I learned about Moses from Charlton Heston," Bale said, referencing The Ten Commandments. "That was my notion of Moses, and I was stunned when I started looking into the Torah and reading it."

Meet Normal Barbie, the Doll With Cellulite and Acne That Proves 'Average Is Beautiful'

19 November 2014 11:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It’s bad enough young girls are inundated with the unrealistic body images of fashion models every day. But even super models don’t — and can’t — look like Barbie, the most unrealistic body image of all time (not that Barbie’s design team seems to care. They blame moms, not their dolls, for girls’ body issues).

Artist Nickolay Lamm wanted to find out exactly how different a doll created using the body proportions of a typical 19-year-old would look from Barbie. Turns out, very different:

“I created ‘Normal Barbie’ because I wanted to show that average is beautiful,” Lamm says about his experiment. His “normal Barbie” became a mockup for a type of doll: Lammily, a fashion doll that promote realistic beauty standards and a healthy lifestyle.

'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Preview: Enter Ridley Scott's Epic World

19 November 2014 11:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ramses (Joel Edgerton) confronts Miriam (Indira Varma) about her true relationship to Moses (Christian Bale) in an intense scene from Exodus: Gods and Kings.

While we don't have much context for this clip, Ramses clearly feels betrayed by Miriam for hiding the fact that she is actually Moses' sister. While Moses tries to persuade Ramses to stop this line of questioning, he ends up revealing the truth just as Ramses is about to harm his sister.

And, in case that clip wasn't enough Biblical action for you, we have a new featurette that includes new footage and interviews with director Ridley Scott, who believes that this world hasn't been properly portrayed before. We also hear from stars Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, who describe their characters' journeys and working with Ridley Scott on this epic adventure.

Christian Bale And Joel Edgerton Wage War In Exodus: Gods And Kings Clip

14 November 2014 10:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By now, I think we have all agreed that when Ridley Scott said that Exodus: Gods and Kings was “historically accurate,” what he really meant was “historically accurate to Biblical epics of the 1950s.” So taking this for granted, we can now start the debate on whether or not the film will be a Ridley Scott classic, or a Ridley Scott epic failure. To further contribute to this debate prior to the film’s actual release, we have a new clip from Exodus: Gods and Kings

in the footage that we see here, Moses (Christian Bale) and Ramses (Joel Edgerton) lend their Anglophone accents to a discussion of heading off to war on…someone. It’s not entirely clear why they’re waging war, or what their ultimate goal is in this sixty second clip, but it certainly does look exciting. As Ramses leads the charge into the fray, we »

Breaking Bad: 9 Poor Story Choices

13 November 2014 5:36 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AMC

Breaking Bad was unanimously praised by fans and critics alike for its take on the extent one man will go to in order to provide for his family upon hearing he has a death sentence looming over his head. The praise is mostly justified.

But beneath the stunningly complex narrative there are scores of problems with this show. Breaking Bad vaulted Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul to the top of their respective field, and rightfully so, but the praise laden upon the show that brought them together is unjust; it doesn’t deserve its 9.5 score on IMDb.

Breaking Bad is good, but it isn’t flawless.

Yes, Breaking Bad is amazing, and yes Ozymandias is one of the best episodes of television Ever. But some aspects of the show could and should have been reworked.

The audience are expected to extend the realms of plausibility in order to accept »
