Christian Bale inflicts some damage in new Exodus: Gods and Kings pictures

Jul. 1, 2014by:

Regardless of the fact that he can be hit or miss, when I think "epic", I think Ridley Scott. The man's filmography speaks for itself and I'd say that the good definitely outweighs the bad. I've always enjoyed watching the man at work in countless documentaries on his films, and you can see he's a director that commands respect from all of his actors. EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS is right up Mr. Scott's alley, and a few pictures have hit to give us an idea of what the film has in-store for us.

The article also has a few words from the cast and crew (you can check it out here) but the one bit of information I enjoyed reading was from Mr. Scott himself.

In regards to shooting EXODUS:

I haven’t had that much fun in a while.

While that says nothing for the end product, it's when directors become bored with their job or the material that makes me question what they're doing. Making a film is an endurance trial, and director's should have a real passion for their work. Ridley Scott usually seems passionate about what he's shooting, and his period-pieces always have a great feel of authenticity. I look forward to seeing a bit more when the trailer hits.

EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS, staring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, and Aaron Paul, will be released on December 12, 2014.

Could go either way

"Kingdom of heaven" would have been great with a better actor in the lead. Orlando Bloom sucked...

Sweet Christmas! How did I did not know about this movie up until today??? I know it isn't much, but I'm in! As Jedd the Jedi said, it looks like the good old Biblical epics from Hollywood's golden age. Love those movies! Sure, they were not technically 100% correct historically. I mean, as polymath76 points out, a whole lot of white actors portraying middle-easterners, but if it's done as an homage to Hollywood's classics, who cares!

Looks like an awesome throwback to the Biblical epics of the golden age of Hollywood. Excited to see Sigourney Weaver reunite with the director who made her a star.

Is that Aaron Paul in the orange face make up, just behind Kingsley? I know he'll act the hell out of this thing, but man they're doing him no favors in the 'identifiable' department.

Joel should be more tan.
Why the fuck does Kingsley have to be in everything. I could never buy Kingsley as the character in a film, he is always like he's playing himself in the film and not a different character.
Costume and Make up design of the film don't seem accurate to me somehow.
That bow looks like an english long bow and not the kind of bow they would use in old Egypt.

Joel Edgerton needs a bit more guyliner and lipstick in that third photo; he hasn't gone full Xerxes.
