Critical Mass: Will reviews plague 'Exodus'?

“Ridley Scott’s eye-candy spectacle [is] an over-the-top Old Testament epic that’s essentially Gladiator with God,” writes EW‘s Chris Nashawaty. That might serve as both critique and the best advertisement that 20th Century Fox could possibly fathom for Exodus: Gods and Kings. Christian Bale stars as Moses, the Egyptian hero who discovers that his charmed life has been a lie, and that his true destiny is freeing the long-suffering Jewish slaves, who suffer under the heel and whip. Joel Edgerton is Ramses, the narcissistic pharaoh whose heart hardens with every horrible plague that engulfs Egypt, and a slew of famous actors pop up in the background of the Biblical epic.

No spoiler alerts are required, of course. But even though the story is as old as written history, no one will want to miss the end, when a giant wave crushes the Egyptian army, as famously depicted in Cecil B. DeMille’s 1956 classic, The Ten Commandments. What will that ultimate special effect look and feel like in the hands of a modern CG master like Scott?

Aaron Sorkin calls Steve Jobs' daughter 'heroine' of upcoming biopic

Though Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic still hasn’t found its Jobs, the screenwriter has offered up a few more details about the film, as well as why finding someone to fill the role has been such a challenge.

In an interview with The Independent, Sorkin opened up about how Jobs’ daughter Lisa became a major facet of his writing process. Lisa, whom Jobs initially denied paternity of but later reconnected with when she was in her teens, spoke to Sorkin. These conversations were a coup for the writer, as Lisa did not speak to Walter Isaacson for the biography on which the film is based. READ FULL STORY

When one thinks of Moses one typically thinks of… Coldplay, right?* Well, Coldplay is what you’ll get in the new trailer for Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings.

(Okay, yes, you may actually think of Coldplay, given that the band has a song called “Moses” and Chris Martin’s son is named Moses. “Moses” is not the song used in this trailer.)

Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, others join Andy Serkis' 'Jungle Book'

Andy Serkis has completed his zoo of actors that will voice his adaptation of Jungle Book: Origins for Warner Bros.

Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander, Eddie Marsan, Peter Mullan, and Serkis himself will all join Benedict Cumberbatch as the animal characters in the feature, which mixes together motion capture, CG animation, and live action. Bale will voice the fearsome panther Bagheera; Blanchett, the sinister python Kaa; and Serkis, the beloved Baloo the bear. Mullan, Harris, and Marsan will all voice members of the wolf pack that raises Mowgli, and Hollander will play Tabaqui, the underling jackal of Shere Khan (Cumberbatch).

In addition to the voice actors, Bad Words star Rohan Chand has been cast as the human boy Mowgli. Callie Kloves wrote the script based on Rudyard Kipling’s short stories for the film, which is a completely different take from Jon Favreau’s equally star-filled Jungle Book film over at Disney.

According to Variety, Bale is in early talks to join the James D. MacDonald adaptation.
