In contrast to Ridley Scott who defended his Egypt-set epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings casting with some colorful comments about how non-white actors couldn’t be cast with his budget, director Alex Proyas and Lionsgate, the studio behind Gods of Egypt, have apologized for their movie whitewashing before it even hits theaters.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the weakest of the three Hobbit films in regards to plot, and is also the weakest opening of Peter Jackson’s six J.R.R. Tolkien adventures. But the threequel still pulled in $90.6 million in the U.S. and Canada and is still one of the season’s biggest releases.
Ridley Scott’s $140 million budgeted Exodus: Gods and Kings easily topped the weekend with a $24.5 million debut, which is well-below the $43.7 million earned fellow biblical epic Noah this past March on its opening weekend. A little surprising actually, I wasn’t expecting Mockingjay to get knocked off until The Hobbit came out.
I think the whole thing has become really boring now. For the third weekend in a row, the Jennifer Lawrence action drama The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 claimed the top spot at the box office with an estimated $21.6 million.
Mockingjay has now earned $257.7 million domestically and international audiences have pushed the hit YA franchise entry over the $300 million mark abroad. Cry me a river.
20th Century Fox aired a special Thanksgiving TV spot — which is really almost a full-fledged trailer — for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings that opens on December 12th.
The new 90-second bad ass spot is full of massive effects shots which might be good, but advertising Exodus as an action movie is desensitizing.
20th Century Fox has released the final (sic) trailer for Ridley Scott’s latest, Exodus: Gods and Kings, which may upset Christians.
Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses found themselves waging a war of biblical proportions in this latest trailer, complete with massive storms and tons of tornadoes.
The second full trailer for Ridley Scott’s epic take Exodus: Gods and Kings has arrived, starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton as rivals Moses and Ramses.
This new one gives the best preview yet of biblical elements like the first revelation that Moses had of God at the burning bush and the parting or the Red Sea, as well as a few of the infamous plagues.
