New Photos from Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'

2 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

20th Century Fox has released some more new photos from director Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings," starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, and Sir Ben Kingsley.

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Scott directed the Biblical epic story from a screenplay written by Steve Zallian, Adam Cooper, and Bill Collage.

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" is set to hit theaters on December 12, 2014.

Steven Quale interview: Into The Storm, Final Destination 5

26 August 2014 12:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Steven Quale talks to us about his latest film Into The Storm, working on James Cameron's The Abyss, bad weather and more...

Steven Quale’s career seems to have been constantly submerged in water. Having worked with James Cameron back on The Abyss, their relationship has meant Quale’s involvement on multiple projects including Titanic and a co-director credit on the documentary Aliens Of The Deep. Quale’s solo feature directorial debut was on Final Destination 5, which wasted no time in plunging most of its cast into water, though they were mostly followed by rather heavy and deadly objects.

We caught up for a chat with Mr Quale to discuss his experiences of soaking actors in water and the challenges of filming a special effects heavy blockbuster, while managing to present a film with a new narrative perspective, as Into The Storm incorporates a first-person perspective into its story, »

Nicolas Cage In New Outcast Trailer

20 August 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Last month we had David Gordon Green's Joe to remind us how great Nicolas Cage can be when given some decent material. Since then, however, we've had trailers for The Rage and Left Behind to yank us back into Cage Wtf territory. And now here's another, in the form of Nick Powell's Outcast. Cage stars alongside Hayden Christensen and Yifei Liu as a battling medieval Crusader called The White Ghost. It's Season Of The Witch all over again... but in 12th-century China.Cage and Christensen have retired from their killing-for-God career when the story starts, and on the evidence in this clip haven't seen each other for a while. They re-team, however, to help the children of a deposed Chinese emperor battle their murderous usurper uncle (Andy On). Cage's choicest trailer lines are a peculiarly accented "How'd you find me, lad?" and "I am the White Ghost!". There's »

Christian Bale And Sigourney Weaver Sport Some Serious Headgear In New Exodus: Gods And Kings Images

19 August 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This December, Ridley Scott will make a bid for Oscar with his Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, which stars Christian Bale as Moses, who rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton) in order to lead Israelite slaves out of bondage. Now, thanks to Entertainment Weekly’s fall preview issue, we’ve got two new images from the film, which highlight Bale (above) and Sigourney Weaver (below) in full Egyptian garb.

Weaver plays Tuya, the mother of Edgerton’s Ramses, whom costume designer Janty Yates told EW she wanted to have a certain “va-va voom” quality, almost like Jessica Rabbit. A little strange, perhaps, for a Biblical epic, but maybe the stylized nature of the costuming will wind up enhancing the film. As the guyliner-heavy posters showed us, Scott isn’t exactly gunning for gritty realism with this movie.

Bale spoke with EW about portraying Moses:

Sigourney Weaver Brings “Va-Va-Voom” to Ancient Egypt in New Exodus: Gods And Kings Images

19 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released a couple of new Exodus: Gods and Kings images from director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic.  One of these new images gives us a closer look at Sigourney Weaver, who plays Tuya, the mother of Joel Edgerton’s Ramses.  Costume designer Janty Yates tells EW that Scott wanted the character to be “va-va-voom,” likening her to Jessica Rabbit—a woman on the prowl.  It’s a curious choice for the Biblical epic, though the rest of the cast is a bit stylized as well, with Edgerton and Christian Bale’s Moses both wearing their fair share of eyeliner. Hit the jump to check out the Exodus: Gods and Kings images and to see what Bale had to say about taking on what he describes as one of the most fascinating characters he’s ever studied.  Exodus: Gods and Kings opens in theaters on December 5th. »

“He’s one of the most fascinating characters I’ve ever studied,” says Christian Bale of Moses, the Old Testament prophet he plays in Exodus: Gods and Kings. “All of his trials, his troubled life and his doubts, his rages and his extremes.” The actor laughs at how Moses—who spoke to God, fought violent battles, parted seas, and struggled to free the enslaved Israelites no matter the cost might fare in the modern era. “Can you imagine if he was alive today? He’d probably be on trial in the Hague.”

NBC’s Constantine Has Found Its Papa Midnite

16 August 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After an extensive search, it looks like NBC has finally found its villain for Constantine. According to USA Today, newcomer Michael James Shaw has been cast in a recurring role as Papa Midnite, the “voodoo king of New Orleans” and a formidable magical adversary to the series’ titular supernatural detective.

Shaw is known for such riveting roles as “Caterer” in Today _ _ cks, “Homesless Man” on The Wire (uncredited), and “Don-o-mite” in an eponymous 2014 short film. Needless to say, Constantine is the biggest role he’s landed yet, and I’m interested to see what he does with it.

Papa Midnite was last played by Gladiator and Guardians of the Galaxy alum Djimon Hounsou, who was great in an otherwise lackluster film. In the comics, Midnite first appeared in Hellblazer issue #1 as an immortal mob boss, businessman, and voodoo practitioner operating out of New York City. He often operates on the wrong side of the law, »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Gladiator

14 August 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

During the 1950s and 60s the historical epic was something of a staple of Hollywood’s output – from Ben-Hur to The Fall of the Roman Empire, sword and sandals tales on a huge scale were incredibly popular, guaranteed to draw huge crowds into the cinemas.

By the late 1990s, however, this was long a thing of the past. Studios were reluctant to pour the required millions into such lavish productions for fear that the public no longer wanted to see such movies, and for the most part they were right. Then Ridley Scott came along – collaborating with writers and producers David Franzoni and Douglas Wick, they pitched the idea of Gladiator to Universal Pictures who gave the movie the green light even before a script had been completed. It was a bold move, especially considering that the script would be under constant rewrites throughout the lengthy production.

Alice In Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass Kicks Off Production

4 August 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, the sequel to Disney’s massively successful, if narratively weak, Alice in Wonderland is starting to roll cameras, with James Bobin replacing Tim Burton in the director’s chair. It took a suprisingly long time for this next chapter of the planned franchise to get off the ground, considering the first film broke $1 billion at the box office, but a press release indicates that filming is now underway.

Officially titled Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, the follow-up finds the original actors returning to their roles, with a bevy of new stars joining both the live-action and voice casts. What the sequel is exactly about is still foggy, but the story is said to “revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time.”

Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass Officially Starts Production

4 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney met with some success in their live-action version of Alice in Wonderland (with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter), and since the film released, talk of a sequel has been on-going.  Now, it's finally moved into production as the cast and crew have gathered together in anticipation of it's May 2016 release.  Disney announced cameras have started rolling with a new cast list confirming both old and new members of the cast coming to the production.  

I wasn't all that thrilled with Alice in Wonderland when it released.  Not that it was a bad movie, I just didn't find it all that special or great.  So it's tough to muster up much enthusiasm for this sequel, despite the impressive cast coming back for it.  From the press release:

ITV's Gladiators: where are they now?

3 August 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Have you ever wondered what Jet, Wolf, and the rest of ITV's Gladiators did after the show finished? Wonder no more...

ITV’s Gladiators - the show that for eight years made children everywhere become interested in sports, eating well and keeping fit... for about five minutes on a Saturday night, then we all went back to our natural state of sitting on the settee eating sugar straight from the packet.

What was it that inspired this minor surge of enthusiasm for being buff? That would be the gladiators themselves. Every week, twelve superhuman powerhouses - six men and six women - would intimidate, bully, and otherwise humiliate whichever puny contestants stepped up to try their luck, beating or hindering them in a series of physical skill games. This took place before the big finale – where the contenders would race each other up a downwards escalator, while the gladiators were »

By The Sword

Warning; this post is long... if you watch all the links, you'll have an hour of entertainment.

When I was 10, my school screened a 16 mm print of the The Mark of Zorro - 1940 version, starring the dashing Tyrone Power. The clash of steel, the dynamic yet graceful athleticism of the hero as he righted wrongs, attracted me, as it did many boys of my age... I wanna do that. Luckily my next school offered fencing lessons from an instructor at the nearby Sandhurst Military Academy, and my inner Basil Rathbone was set free to ultimately Captain the school team. I saw every sword fighting movie I could and still do. Yet the only duel I have ever filmed had to be shot in 3 hours... The history of the genre could fill many volumes, but here is a short introduction to Sword Cinema.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Review

1 August 2014 4:25 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Benicio Del Toro, Peter Serafinowicz, Josh Brolin | Written by James Gunn, Nicole Perlman | Directed by James Gunn

As a kid growing up in the late 80s/early 90s in a small town in Lancashire there weren’t many places to buy the comics I so adored. I had to rely on the book stall in the local market to pick up the comics I wanted to read – and those that just caught my eye. Back I had three staple titles I would collect: Justice League International, New Warriors and Guardians of the Galaxy. However these cinematic Guardians aren’t my Guardians of the Galaxy

Back then it was the adventures of Vance Astro, Charlie-27, Starhawk and a certain Yondu Udonta, who would travel the galaxy battling the Badoon. »

Watch the Comic-Con Teaser Trailer for Air, Starring Norman Reedus

27 July 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Imagine being a custodial worker in a bunker that’s the last livable place on Earth. The air outside is unbreathable, and a select group of humans are in cryogenic slumber around you. This is life for workers Bauer and Cartwright, but great responsibility and a dark secret could threaten to destroy their sanity and the human race. Produced by Robert Kirkman and starring Norman Reedus, Air is hitting theaters next spring and a teaser trailer was released yesterday during Comic-Con.

Set to come out in the spring of 2015, Air is the first feature film from Skybound Entertainment. Joining Reedus in the movie is Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Blood Diamond, Fast & Furious 7), who plays Cartwright opposite Reedus’ Bauer. Christian Cantamessa (co-writer of the video game, Red Dead Redemption) makes his directing debut with Air, based off a script by himself and Chris Pasetto. Robert Kirkman is producing the project, along with David Alpert, »
