With rumours arriving that The Walking Dead spin-off may be a prequel, hot on the heels of the news that Syfy is pursuing a series about Superman's grandfather, titled Krypton, there are officially no more jokes. Anything you might say about making a comic book series set some ridiculous amount of time before the real story starts happening, can and will be seriously considered as a pitch by some network, somewhere.
A Newsroom-style series about The Daily Planet before Clark Kent started working there? A psychological procedural featuring Dr. Harleen Quinzel but no Joker? A jungle-set adventure series about Gorilla Grodd's granddad? We could keep going until the phone rings and someone makes us an offer for a pilot, but that would be an unnecessary amount of pre-amble before getting to the point, »

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott comes the epic adventure Exodus: Gods And Kings, the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire.

Now that Marvel Studios has officially confirmed "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch as the title mystical hero in Doctor Strange, the focus has shifted to the supporting roles. So far nobody else has been cast in the film that will be directed by Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us from Evil) and written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), though there have been rumblings (and potentially confused details) about Daniel Bruhl's character from Captain America: Civil War potentially crossing over into Doctor Strange. But a new rumor pegs Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy & Ken Watanabe on a shortlist for a supporting role. More below! So who would one of these actors play? Latino Review has word that they're in consideration for the role of The Ancient One, the mentor to Stephen Strange, who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. The Ancient One is the previous Sorcerer Supreme before Strange inherits the title, »

The departure of Roberto Orci as director of the as-yet-untitled third film in Jj Abram's rebooted Star Trek continuity has cast a little doubt on the future of a franchise that has already spent a lot of time on unsure footing. Although Star Trek's new cast is undeniably packed with talent and the look of the films has been both technically and aesthetically stunning, the stories have arguably failed to capture the same newly-invigorated feeling. Both movies have been watchable blockbusters by current standards, but for all their budget and star power, neither has arguably been close to reaching the iconic heights of Star Trek at its best.
Admittedly, that may be a biased assessment. If you grew up with the original series, or Star Trek: The Next Generation, »

Exodus: Gods and Kings, 2014.
Directed by Ridley Scott.
The defiant leader Moses rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
When revered director Quentin Tarantino takes to interviews and discusses that filmmaking is a young man’s game and that so many auteurs overstay their welcome, one can’t help but feel that Ridley Scott is a perfect representation. Coming off of a roll of commonly agreed-upon terrible movies (The Counselor, Prometheus) Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings seems to be an attempt at re-creating something in the vein of Gladiator; his sprawling lengthy epic that won the award for Best Picture.
Let’s just get it out of the way, Exodus: Gods and Kings is another misfire, »

In the comics, The Ancient One is the previous Sorcerer Supreme who serves as Strange's mentor. Marvel previously confirmed that actor Benedict Cumberbatch will play the title character.
The Ancient One also ends up training but ultimately rejecting Baron Mordo, a character long rumored to be the villain in the film and even to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming "Captain America: Civil War".

The stars of Netflix's potential new binge-watching obsession, Marco Polo, stopped by the Et set to talk about the historical drama and the countless shirtless scenes.
News: Marco Polo Stars on Going Totally Nude for Netflix
"I don't think I'm beautiful enough to be a sex symbol," Lorenzo told Et's Brooke Anderson. "I think I have a good face for the screen, but I'm not like Leonardo DiCaprio or Brad Pitt. They're super beautiful. I'm more of a rough beauty."
Lorenzo's fans may beg to differ once they get a load of his shirtless scenes. The young star is bare chested for a good portion of the series and even appears nude at one point. He filled us in on the fitness regimen that he undertook to get ready »
Now that Marvel has confirmed actor Benedict Cumberbatch is the new Doctor Strange, the studio is focusing its casting efforts on finding the right actor to play The Ancient One. Latino Review reports that Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy and Ken Watanabe are the studio's top candidates to play The Ancient One in this Marvel Phase Three adventure. It isn't clear at this point which of these actors is the front runner for the role.
It also isn't known how large of a role The Ancient One may have in this story, since we reported in August that Doctor Strange will not be an origin story, with Stephen Strange already established as a superhero. In the Marvel comics, The Ancient One is the previous Sorcerer Supreme, who serves as Strange's mentor. He also ends up training but ultimately rejecting Mordo, a character long rumored to be the villain in Doctor Strange. »
When the entire span of Ridley Scott's career is finally written about, it's tough to say where a film like "Exodus: Gods and Kings" will stand. On the one hand, it's a big, brash, big-budget retelling of an ancient Biblical tale, a story of such big proportions that no less a titan than Cecil B. DeMille made two distinct versions of the Hebrews-out-of-Egypt story. On the other hand, it's a film that doesn't lend itself to hyperbolic enthusiasm, the way Scott's "Alien," "Blade Runner" or "Thelma and Louise" did.
I'm no fan of "Gladiator," but it's fair to say that it provided a template for Ridley's later work -- mixing high drama, big action sequences and a visual flair that owed as much to early Hollywood extravaganzas as it did to latter-day adventure films. It may be because I watched it only the week before, but the film that »

It's easy to get swept up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas. With all the emphasis on the trees and the lights and the shiny, shiny gifts, it's easy to forget about the holiday's deeply religious roots, about the birth of Christ and the three wise men and all of that. And there's at least one movie out this season that tries to at least carry the spiritual flavor of the holiday forward -- Fox's "Exodus: Gods and Kings," an epic, hugely expensive re-telling of the story of Moses (this time played by former Batman Christian Bale) leading the Jews out of Egypt, and far away from the cruel pharaoh (Joel Edgerton).
This is a story that has been told countless times before, most notably in the cinematic incarnations of "The Ten Commandments" (starring Charlton Heston) and "Prince of Egypt" (the DreamWorks animated disappointment). So the question remains -- why now? »

With Exodus: Gods And Kings opening this week, Ridley Scott is once more back in the limelight – as are Prometheus 2 and the Blade Runner sequel. Long-rumored, the two films seem to have been in the offing for years, but Scott has been rather short on the details. That’s changing, though, as the director revealed to MTV News (via Screen Rant) some of what he has planned on the two films.
You have to. You can’t have a person go off into the galaxy and have a person who’s still got his head off. Once that head goes back on, he’s really dangerous, but he’s also very seductive. So maybe he’ll persuade her to help him put the head back. »

Speaking with MTV News, Scott confirms "Prometheus 2" will pick up directly or soon after the ending of the first film with the story of Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and the android David (Michael Fassbender):
"You have to. You can't have a person go off into the galaxy and have a person who's still got his head off. Once that head goes back on, he's really dangerous, but he's also very seductive. So maybe he'll persuade her to help him put the head back."
He also confirmed he's still undecided on directing the "Blade Runner" sequel as reported a few weeks back, but says the script is written and ready to go. He also spoke about Harrison Ford's involvement as apparently the search »

For those movie fans keen to return to the arid deserts of a post-apocalyptic wasteland, Warner Bros. has delivered your Christmas present early. In advance of its release next spring, we now bring you a new trailer for the eagerly-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road.
Revisiting the world first introduced to audiences back in 1979’s Mad Max, starring Mel Gibson, director George Miller amps up the action tenfold. The state of the world is much as it was then; society is on the brink of collapse due to global water and oil shortages and the savages are out to reap the benefits. Enlisting The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy in place of Gibson, this updated Max Rockatansky has new crazed adversaries to battle.
For the most part, the teaser orbits around the destruction caused by Nicholas Hoult’s larger-than-life villain, coming across like a spry version of the X-Men’s silent mutant, »
