Will 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Anger Christiansc Bale Calls Moses "Schizophrenic" & "Barbaric"

19 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It seems Ridley Scott is going the opposite direction Darren Aronofsky went with Noah when it comes to interpreting the more magical and mystical events to be told in his upcoming Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings. Aronofsky made use of rock monsters to explain how one family could construct an ark that would carry two of all the world's species of animals, but when it comes to the parting of the Red Sea in Exodus, Scott turned to science rather than magic. "You can't just do a a giant parting, with walls of water trembling while people ride between them," Scott told Entertainment Weekly, saying he wasn't convinced when he saw Charlton Heston do it in Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments (1956). "I didn't believe it then, when I was just a kid sitting in the third row. I remember that feeling, and thought that I'd better come »

10 Reasons Critics Are Calling Interstellar A Disappointment

29 October 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

The much-discussed review embargo on Christopher Nolan’s latest blockbuster Interstellar finally lifted on Monday, bringing forth a tidal wave of critical impressions of the film, which were decidedly more mixed than most of Nolan’s fans or general movie commentators were expecting. After bottoming out at around 64% earlier in the week, the Matthew McConaughey-starring sci-fi flick currently sits at 70% with a 7.2 average after 27 reviews, putting it dangerously close to the score that Ridley Scott’s divisive Prometheus eventually leveled out to (73% with a 6.9 average).

In fairness, though, even the negative reviews for Interstellar praise Nolan’s cavalier attempt to tell such an insanely ambitious story, as well as the jaw-dropping visuals, which apparently absolutely must be seen on an IMAX screen. Still, even though the so-called “Nolanites” might not like it, a flawed film is a flawed film, and short of a miracle upswing in reviews over the next week, »

Et has a first look at what could be the newest binge-watching obsession on Netflix -- Marco Polo.

The R-rated drama based on Marco Polo's adventures in 13th-century China has it all -- politics, sex, and a hot lead actor, Lorenzo Richelmy.

News: Friends is coming to Netflix!

Lorenzo, 24, a rising young talent from Italy, was excited to show viewers a side of the famed explorer that they hadn't known before.

"Marco has this passion for people and culture, and he fell in love with this amazing world," said Lorenzo.

Show creator John Fusco (Young Guns) agreed, saying, "When people hear the name Marco Polo they tend to think of a map or explorer. Very few people know the true story of Marco Polo, and it's so much more compelling and exciting than the mythology."

Benedict Cumberbatch Is Your Next Marvel Movie Star

27 October 2014 12:06 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Deadline reports Benedict Cumberbatch is in final negotiations to become Marvel’s Doctor Strange. This comes after the studio failed to lock down Joaquin Phoenix for the role. As we’ve explained, Strange is known for such mystical acts as uttering spells, reading forbidden manuscripts, and levitating while surrounded by candles. Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us From Evil) is directing, and Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) is writing the solo movie about a neurosurgeon turned Sorcerer Supreme. For Cumberbatch, this is another in a streak of iconic figures, following Sherlock, Smaug, Khan, and, of course, Mr. Burns in the X-Files episode of The Simpsons. »

Benedict Cumberbatch Back in Talks to Be Marvel's 'Doctor Strange'

27 October 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After being in the running for the role of Doctor Strange this past summer, and then falling away for a few months, "Sherlock" and Star Trek Into Darkness star Benedict Cumberbatch is now in talks with Marvel to take the lead role in their Phase Three film. Previously, Joaquin Phoenix was the top pick, but a deal wasn't finalized. Marvel has been considering various names since then, and right now they're just trying to figure out if they can work around Cumberbatch's schedule in order to get him in the film directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). That's some positively great news! Ewan McGregor was the most recent name to be tied to the role, but there were other actors in the running as well like Jared Leto, Oscar Isaac, Matthew McConaughey, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ethan Hawke. In addition, Cumberbatch was said to be back in the running too, »

Marvel Has Chosen Benedict Cumberbatch To Play Doctor Strange

27 October 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ten days ago, Jeff Sneider of The Wrap reported that Benedict Cumberbatch was in the mix for 'Dr. Stephen Strange' role in Marvel's upcoming film, Doctor Strange, and today, Deadline is reporting that Marvel has chosen Cumberbatch for the role. As of right now the actor is "final negotiations" which means he will more than likely sign on. Though, the same was said about  Joaquin Phoenix just before the San Diego Comic-Con and he ended up passing. I'm sure Marvel wouldn't let that happen again. Cumberbatch is currently garnering some major Oscar buzz for his performance as 'Alan Turing' in the biopic, The Imitation Game, but Doctor Strange, if is as successful as previous Marvel films, could finally make Cumberbatch a household name here in the States. Doctor Strange will be directed by Sinister and Deliver Us From Evil director, Scott Derrickson. The script is currently being rewritten by Prometheus screenwriter Jon Spaihts, »

Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton Go Head-to-Head in Latest Exodus: Gods And Kings Posters

27 October 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Come December 5th, Christian Bale’s Moses and Joel Edgerton’ Ramses will go head-to-head in Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings, and these latest posters for the film really play up the conflicting tactics of the two.  Even though they grew up together, almost like brothers, Ramses is the one who’s born to rule Egypt whereas Moses is destined to lead 600,000 slaves out of the region. Similar to just about every single promo we’ve seen from the film thus far, including the first set of posters, the visuals here are bold and striking, but we’ve still got a little over a month to go until we find out if the heavy eyeliner and flashy armor translate into a worthy retelling of the story - although I am very hopeful Scott pulled it off.  Hit the jump to check out the new Exodus: Gods and Kings posters. »

Benedict Cumberbatch Is Doctor Strange

27 October 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well this is something of a surprise: after seemingly endless talk about how Joaquin Phoenix and Jared Leto were the front-runners for Marvel and Disney's upcoming "Doctor Strange" movie, Deadline is reporting that the studios now have a lock on who will become the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Sorcerer Supreme, and it's none other than... Benedict Cumberbatch.

Yay!

Supposedly, Cumberbatch is entering final negotiations (and keep in mind that there is a big Marvel-related media event planned for tomorrow in Los Angeles) for the movie that will eventually be directed by Scott Derrickson and is being written by Jon Spaihts ("Prometheus"). If you have a basement free of old comic books, then we'll inform you that Doctor Strange is a character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in the sixties and is easily one of the trippier characters either came up with. He's kind of the last line of defense »

New Halo Nightfall Trailer Looks Like A Ridley Scott Joint

26 October 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Xbox is getting in on the original programming game with an upcoming live-action digital series titled Halo Nightfall, which will debut its first episode during the live-stream HaloFest event on November 10th. Xbox One owners who pick up Halo: The Master Chief Collection the next day will have access to the entire series.

Based on the wildly successful video game franchise, Nightfall boasts a pretty stellar pedigree – it was executive produced by Ridley Scott (Alien, Black Hawk Down), directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezza (Battlestar Galactica, Falling Skies), and scribed by Paul Scheuring, the creator of Prison Break. In particular, one can see Scott’s fingerprints all over Nightfall in the below trailer – it showcases the same sort of sci-fi gothic horror feel that the director established in Alien and Prometheus.

That the series looks so distinctly cinematic is a pleasant surprise and should help to make what appears to be »

Noomi Rapace Has A Great Idea For Who The Villains Should Be In Prometheus 2

24 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

At the end of Ridley Scott's Prometheus, Noomi Rapace's character of Elizabeth Shaw finally got to meet one of the Engineers that created her and the rest of humanity. The only trouble with that meeting was that it turned out the gods who created us wanted to take us out of this universe just as quickly, and had the weapons to do so. After a climactic battle that eventually created the Xenomorphs from the Alien series, we were left with Shaw and David (or what's left of him) heading off to find more of the answers that she's been searching for. Despite Ridley Scott ruling out the Xenomorphs as being the villains in Prometheus 2, Noomi Rapace revealed in an MTV UK interview to promote The Drop that her idea for the next villains in the biological/theological sci-fi franchise are probably the biggest options available. God maybe. »

See how Ridley Scott terraformed Spain into Ancient Egypt for 'Exodus'

24 October 2014 5:54 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Epic can’t be faked. CG magic can only take directors partway. Without an element of the real to hang on, digitally rendered wideshots filled with simulated armies are going to trigger our scrutinous brains. Blame Cecil B. DeMille and David Lean. Audiences know how epic is done right. Reviving that “golden age” definition seems to be Ridley Scott’s prerogative on “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” Released footage still teases massive amounts of special effects — Moses’s 10 plagues look like a barrage attack exploding out of Zod’s “Man of Steel” World Machine — but there’s a foundation of reality. Landscapes are speckled with fantastical elements. “Exodus” kindly refuses the “300” style. We get a taste of Scott’s commitment to verisimilitude, the ol’ fashioned way of movie making, in a new “Exodus: Gods and Kings” featurette. Looking behind the scenes at the locations in the film, the video reveals Ancient »

Noomi Rapace Discusses Prometheus 2 Storyline

24 October 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Last month, director Ridley Scott revealed that the Xenomorph creature from the original "Alien" films will not appear in the upcoming "Prometheus" sequel. Now, in a new interview with MTV, Noomi Rapace spoke about where the follow-up is headed. "I know Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace) wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one," she explained. "I don't want to go back. She can't go to Earth, because there's nothing left for her there, really. She wants to go to where they came from, these giant creatures. I think, in her head, that's a dark paradise, in a way, so what's there? I don't know. I think she wants answers, she wants to know, and I feel like I'm sharing her curiosity, but also anger." Since the film won't have Xenomorphs, what else can the characters run into? "God, maybe? God or Devil, I don't know," Rapace continued. »

Rapace Talks "Prometheus" Sequel Progress

With Ridley Scott confirming last month that the xenomorphs from the original "Alien" films won't be showing up in the "Prometheus" sequel, questions have quickly arisen as to what we will see in the new film.

We do know the film will see the return of Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw and potentially Michael Fassbender as the head of the android David. Rapace was asked about the sequel recently by MTV UK and offered her thoughts on where her character might go:

"Well, I know Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one. I don't want to go back. She can't go to Earth, because there's nothing left for her there, really. She wants to go to where they came from, these giant creatures. I think, in her head, that's a dark paradise, in a way, so what's there? I don't know. I think she wants answers, »
