DeMille’s Call Sheets

31 August 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A friend passed on these pieces of moviemaking memorabilia. They're call sheets for Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments starring, naturally, Charlton Heston and a cast of thousands. These sheets are are directed to just a few of those thousands but the production minutiae gives us some insight into the backbreaking attention to detail that went into making an epic circa 1955. Click to see the sheets at their original size.

Ridley Scott Claims That Exodus: Gods And Kings Has Plenty Of Diversity

27 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings has been receiving quite a bit of criticism recently, and not just because it’s a terrible title for a film. A number of bloggers and tweeters have remarked upon the rather odd casting choices behind almost all the main characters. Those ancient Egyptians seem to be awfully…white.

The controversy comes down to a uniformly white cast in the front lines of Exodus: Gods and Kings, while black actors were cast (again, almost uniformly) as slaves or servants. Ridley Scott does not see much of a problem with the casting, though, as he told Australian Yahoo (via The Film Stage):

Egypt was – as it is now – a confluence of cultures, as a result of being a crossroads geographically between Africa, the Middle East and Europe. We cast major actors from different ethnicities to reflect this diversity of culture, from Iranians to Spaniards to Arabs. »

Kingstone Media Offers More Biblical Epics for Noah Viewers to Explore

31 July 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Films based on the Holy Bible are as popular now as they were in the 1950s and 1960s when studios gave us epics like The Ten Commandments, Ben-Hur, The Greatest Story Ever Told, King of Kings, Samson and Delilah, and many others. Recently, Son of God made quite an impact in cinemas and there’s plenty more coming our way. Ridley Scott’s Exodus tells the tale of Christian Bale’s Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt. Nicolas Cage will help those seeking answers to the disappearances of loved ones and face the disastrous consequences of being Left Behind.

Darren Aronofsky’s Noah hits Blu-ray and DVD giving those who didn’t watch the movie in theaters an opportunity to see the latest Hollywood Biblical saga. Many might not know that it was actually based on a graphic novel Aronofsky and co-writer Ari Handel made with Canadian artist Niko Henrichon. »

This Week in Blu-ray / DVD Releases: Noah, The Other Woman, Twin Peaks

28 July 2014 10:47 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

This week: Catching waves with Noah, ogling The Other Woman, and a return to Twin Peaks. ► Like a crazy hybrid of ‘The Ten Commandments’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ Noah is as implausible as it is entertaining – a biblical epic with an environmental kick not afraid to piss off purists. God is never mentioned by name (he’s called The Creator throughout), and, oh, those crazy »

The Evolution of Hercules in Pop Culture

25 July 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

This weekend marks Hercules’ return to the big screen. A staple in the hero canon, the half man, and half god has slayed lions, bedded mortal women, and even hung out with the Three Stooges. Over the past seven decades, the hero has transformed from an Italian Stallion of the 1950s to the Blockbuster Beefcake we see today thanks to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kellan Lutz taking on the title role. With the former’s film (Hercules directed by Brett Ratner) opening this weekend, we thought it was a good time to look at the evolution of Hercules on the big screen.

’50s: The Italian Stallion

A star of the “sword and scandal” genre, Hercules became a regular fixture in Italian cinema during the 1950s. These historical epics were seen as the country’s answer to successful big-budget Hollywood films, such as Spartacus and The Ten Commandments.

See What 3D Glasses Looked Like Back in 1924

As you prepare to watch the tremendous Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 3D this weekend with your fancy, modern 3D glasses, here's a fun look back at what those 3D glasses looked like when they first arrived in theaters almost 100 years ago.  This pair of 3D glasses currently for sale on eBay appears to have been used during a double feature of The Ten Commandments and The Covered Wagon all the way back in June of 1924 at the Rivoli Theatre in New York City, which was one of the first theaters to project 3D.  That wasn't the first audience to experience 3D, however, as you'd have to back up to 1915 and a series of test reels that were projected to an audience inside New York's Astor Theater. The first completed film to be projected in 3D was The Power...

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

9 July 2014 6:36 PM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

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 »

Video: Christian Bale fights a biblical battle in 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' trailer

8 July 2014 5:52 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

We’ve seen director Ridley Scott do the whole swords-and-sandals thing before, in 2000′s Gladiator, but now he’s going even further back in time with Exodus: Gods and Kings.

Christian Bale plays a pre-Ten Commandments Moses, going head-to-head with Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton) to free hundreds of thousands of slaves. Watch the first trailer for the biblical epic below:

Bale told EW’s Sara Vilkomerson that he wasn’t trying to be the second coming of Charlton Heston in the movie. “Charlton Heston does Charlton Heston better than anyone,” he said. “But the biblical account of Moses is extraordinary, »

'Exodus: Gods And Kings' Trailer: Christian Bale Is Moses

8 July 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings is one of the many bible epics that's set to hit the big screen in the near future. 20th Century Fox finally released the first trailer for the December-release, featuring Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Ramses. Check it out below.

The story of Moses has been adapted before – most brilliantly by Cecil B. DeMille in 1956's The Ten Commandments, which I watched religiously as a kid (call me crazy) – and some of you might be dismissing this film because of its bible roots. But this is a Ridley Scott production and here's what can be said about this short teaser: if anything, it'll be visually stunning. For some reason, the trailer only focuses on Moses relationship with Ramses (them growing up like brothers), and holds back from what came later – Moses taking the people of Israel out of Egypt's bondage. »

Stalingrad 3D Blu-ray review

8 July 2014 2:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Aliya's blown away by the scale of this Russian WWII movie, but feels oddly distanced from it all the same...

Is being epic a genre distinction? Even before D.W. Griffith came along there were epic films out there, either historical or biblical, with great big heroes and towering sets. And every age of cinema has had its epic presentations: The Ten Commandments gave us the plagues of Egypt with Charlton Heston to part the Red Sea, David Lean presented us with an epic desert amongst other things, and Baz Luhrmann showed off an epic Australia. It’s all to do with the sweeping music, the majestic pan of the camera, the slow motion and the grand emotions.

Stalingrad has all of these things, and I get the feeling that it set out to put itself squarely in the epic genre. I watched it in 3D and it was an enormous experience, »

Beauty Break: Headdresses

4 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I've been holding on to this picture of Sigourney Weaver as "Tuya" from Exodus for a couple of days without any idea what to say about it other than 'thank god Sigourney's signature directors still love her'. Between Ridley Scott (Alien) and James Cameron (Aliens), Lt. Ellen Ripley will always find her way back to decent roles on the big screen.

But I don't understand the casting of that movie at all. Everyone is So white, like pasty white. Especially Joel Edgerton as Ramses. In The Ten Commandments that role went to Yul Brynner. Though Brynner was also white, a white Russian to be exact though that sounds alcoholic and we're not talking about how drunk looking at Yul makes me, he had that exotic visual flair that had Hollywood casting him in every conceivable ethnicity. Kind of the way Ben Kingsley who is Indian British is used now, only sexier. »

Weinstein Company Considers Selling Off TV Division

2 July 2014 7:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Weinstein Company will identify the opportunities for a possible spinoff of its television division in the next four to six weeks, according to a source close to the company. The company is looking to retain an investment bank next week at the Allen & Co. conference in Sun Valley and will proceed into deeper consideration of a sale, taking the company public, or raising a large sum, that person added.

According to a person familiar with the matter, several suitors have approached the Weinstein Co. over the last three to four months, but the company really had its interest piqued in the last 60 days.

Weinstein Company declined to comment.

At present, the independent studio is producing 22 reality shows, seven scripted shows and has another handful of shows in development. Former Miramax head of production Meryl Poster is president of the television division.

Most of the company’s reality assets are »

Christian Bale Rides into Action as Moses in New Stills from Ridley Scott’s Exodus

1 July 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Sir Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings looks set to be one of this December’s biggest movies, and a new set of stills have been released featuring The Dark Knight’s Christian Bale heading into action on horseback as Moses. A number of other images have also debuted, putting the spotlight on a very different looking Joel Edgerton, as well as Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley and the impressive set designs.

In Exodus, Joel Edgerton plays Egyptian pharoah Ramses, Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro play his royal parents Tuya and Seti, Aaron Paul co-stars as a follower of Moses, and Ben Kingsley rounds out the cast as a Hebrew scholar. It’s a great cast with some sure to be very interesting characters.

Talking to EW, Bale had this to say about following in the footsteps of Charlton Heston. “Charlton Heston does Charlton Heston better than anyone. But the »

New Photos of Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul And Sigourney Weaver From Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings

Ridley Scott confers on-set with Sigourney Weaver, who portrays Tuya in this behind the scenes, on set photo.

The two previously worked on Alien and 1492: Conquest Of Paradise.

Also starring stars Aaron Paul, John Turturro and Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley, 20th Century Fox will release the film in Us theaters December 12th and UK cinemas on December 26th.

Christian Bale's Moses Goes Into Battle Mode In New Exodus: Gods And Kings Still

1 July 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Starring as Batman in Christopher Nolan.s Dark Knight trilogy, Christian Bale had to stand up against all of the comparisons made between him and all of the actors who had played the part before. In his next performance, the Oscar-winning actor will be attempting a similar feat . albeit with a very different kind of character. Later this year, Bale will be playing Moses in Ridley Scott.s Exodus: Gods and Kings, and his performance will surely draw comparisons to Charlton Heston.s role in Cecil B. DeMille.s The Ten Commandments. From the look of the new still from Exodus you see above, it would appear that Bale is quite charged up for the challenge. As you can see in this picture, which was debuted by Entertainment Weekly, this new version of the biblical hero . at least in the early portions of the film, is going to be going »

Photos: Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods & Kings"

1 July 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whilst one blurry photo scored a release a few months back, EW has now posted a bunch of new stills from Ridley Scott's upcoming biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings" due for release this December.

The new photos show a first look at Joel Edgerton as the Pharaoh Ramses and Sigourney Weaver as his mother Tuya, along with new shots of Christian Bale as Moses and Scott himself at work.

Bale says the film has no intention of competing with Charlton Heston in "The Ten Commandments," the film will have a very different tone and cover partly different material:

"Charlton Heston does Charlton Heston better than anyone. But the biblical account of Moses is extraordinary, and there was lots of room for us to go to places that [Charlton Heston's movie] The Ten Commandments never dreamed of going. [There are] No fake beards. There's nothing mild about the Exodus or Moses."
