Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

22 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Russian Cinema: Local Pics Up VFX Ante

8 September 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Russian audiences have an enthusiasm for 3D, large formats and visual effects, says Paul Heth, CEO of leading Russian exhibition chain Karo.

That lines up Russians with audiences in much of the world, where such spectacle films lead the box office.

But their hunger for such films has forced Russian producers and visual effects companies to step up or risk losing out to Hollywood imports.

But while other territories are lagging in that area, Russian companies are stepping up. It’s not just Hollywood’s big-budget, 3D, vfx-heavy tentpoles thriving at the box office, but Russian spectacles as well.

Some of the biggest Russian box office hits in the past year have been 3D vfx pics with budgets far above average for local productions. World War II epic “Stalingrad 3D,” for example, grossed 1.66 billion rubles ($45.8 million) in Russia, and fantasy horror “Viy 3D” took $33.2 million.

Ridley Scott Gets Biblical in Behind-the-Scenes Look at 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'

6 September 2014 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Ridley Scott is a moviemaking machine as he enters the latter stages of his 70s, and the man who gave us titles like Gladiator is ready to unleash another big-budget period epic with his newest feature Exodus: Gods and Kings. That’s right, the man behind Blade Runner is about to get biblical on you. Yahoo! Movies scored an interesting new behind-the-scenes clip that reveals the massive scope of Scott’s newest venture. The director takes us backstage and on location to show us Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton as Moses and Ramses, two brothers who have a falling out that leads to war. As is to be expected in a Ridley Scott joint, Exodus has some enormous sets, gigantic set pieces, and an action-oriented approach to the classic story that might lure in the less...

Exodus: Gods and Kings featurette released online

5 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

20th Century Fox has released the first behind-the-scenes look at Ridley Scott’s latest epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings, which debuts this Christmas across cinemas worldwide.

Telling the story of Moses (Christian Bale, The Dark Knight Trilogy), the film is set to go almost head-to-head with the final Hobbit film this Christmas in the grandeur stakes, with Scott reteaming with Gladiator co-writer Steven Zaillian, as well as an eclectic supporting cast including Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Sigourney Weaver (Alien), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), John Turturro (Barton Fink), Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises) and Sir Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3).

So far, it certainly looks pretty epic, and with such a talented cast, it could be a big hit come winter, and you can check out the featurette below…

Exodus: Gods and Kings is released in the Us on December 12th, with a UK release on Boxing Day.

Bts Look at Ridley Scott’s Exodus Movie

4 September 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Opening in theaters on December 12, go behind the scenes in the making of 20th Century Fox’s epic Exodus: Gods And Kings from director Ridley Scott.

The Noah movie opened the floodgates for biblical movies at the beginning of 2014 and to some, a welcome visit back to the Golden Age of Hollywood.

With Exodus bowing at the end of the year during awards season, Scott solidifies his status among the ranks of those larger-than-life directors – David Lean, Cecil B. DeMilleWilliam Wyler, Joseph L. Mankiewicz – in his latest historical drama.

Casting is everything and with huge stars like Oscar-winners Christian Bale and Ben Kingsley, Oscar-nominee Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton, the filmmaker may find himself at Hollywood’s big party in February. Last time Scott went epic was in May 2000 when Gladiator opened in theaters and later went on to win five Oscars, including Best Picture, at the 73rd Academy Awards. »

Go Behind The Scenes Of Ridley Scott’s Biblical Epic Exodus: Gods And Kings With This Featurette

4 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott’s return to the sword and sandals epic has been a long time coming. Following the director’s seminal and indeed award-winning rendition of ancient Rome with Gladiator in 2000, Scott is planning to transition the biblical story of Moses onto the silver screen with Exodus: Gods and Kings — a feat that hasn’t been achieved for over fifty years.

And, with less than three months until its release, Yahoo Movies has published a behind-the-scenes featurette of the film, which features Scott and Arthur Max — who serves as production designer on the project — discussing the trials and tribulations of filming this most epic tale.

Undoubtedly, the focal point of Exodus: Gods and Kings is Moses’ (Christian Bale) relationship with his brother — the Pharoah Ramses, who will be embodied by Joel Edgerton. After defying Ramses and freeing over 60,000 slaves, Moses leads the former prisoners on a harrowing journey through Egypt which, »

Watch: Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods & Kings' Epic Gets First Featurette

4 September 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After director Ridley Scott didn't really say anything to address the complaints of a whitewashed cast for the Egyptian epic Exodus: Gods & Kings, a new featurette has come along with the filmmaker explaining why he wanted to make the film. If the first trailer wasn't enough to show off the large scope and epic nature of the film, then this featurette will get the job done. But that's mostly because everyone says "epic" about a dozen times in this short preview of the forthcoming winter release. It should make for quite the box office battle since The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters around the same time. Watch below! Here's the first featurette for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods & Kings, originally from Yahoo: Exodus: Gods and Kings is directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Robin Hood, Alien, Blade Runner) and written by Adam Cooper & Bill Collage (Tower Heist, »

Watch: New Featurette For Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods And Kings' Starring Christian Bale & Joel Edgerton

4 September 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Of all the big movies coming our way this fall, the one that looks the most potentially dicey is "Exodus: Gods And Kings," Ridley Scott's grand-scale retelling of the story of Moses. In theory, the idea of the director of "Gladiator" working with his biggest-ever budget for the first live-action take on the tale in fifty years should be an enticing one, especially with a cast including Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro, Ben Mendelsohn and Ben Kingsley. But footage has underwhelmed so far, and the film's been (correctly) beset by the decision to cast mostly caucasian actors in Middle Eastern roles, including Edgerton done up in make-up that we can only describe as Clementine Face (the Australian actor has expressed sympathy with the outcry, saying in a recent interview, "I do understand and empathize with that position," presumably while simultaneously trying to wash fake »

15 Heart-Achingly Beautiful Movie Scores

3 September 2014 1:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Dreamworks

Since there have been films, there have been film scores. Even at in the very beginning, pianists had to improvise music on the spot for silent films when otherwise there would just be the shuffling of the audience. Now film composing has become an art form, with iconic cinematic melodies cementing themselves as an important part of pop culture.

Scores are in a genre of their own. They can be said to be somewhere between classical music with their optional orchestras, and pop music with their accessibility. A lot is at stake for a good film score, they can be so subtle that it’s a tedious drone or they can be so overbearing that the film suffers from it entirely.

Some scores don’t even need the film beside them to work as many people listen to them separately. Therapeutic scores help us relax and exciting scores pump us up. »
