BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
As many great films as Ridley Scott has made in a wide variety of genres, he will arguably be forever known for his contributions to science-fiction. Later this year, the filmmaker will once again try an leave an indelible mark on the genre with the release of The Martian - and earlier today we got a look at the movieís very first footage.
By now we should all know that District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp is planning to make a fifth Alien movie. But with Prometheus 2 in the works for 2016, will the new Alien overlap with what Ridley Scottís planning?
The irony of this situation has to be that Sir Ridley Scott rarely edits his films just once. This is a man who has at least five versions of his masterpiece, Blade Runner. And he has gone on record to say that his initial cut of Exodus ran four hours long.
While there hasnít been a ton of momentum quite yet on the Blade Runner sequel, you can now rest assured because Harrison Ford says itís the best thing heís ever read.
Sir Ridley Scott is one of the most influential filmmakers of all time. But what are his 10 greatest ever movies? Here's a list to provoke a furious debate on the topic.
The thing about the Red Sea sequence is that it competes with several eye-popping visual events in the rest of the movie. Sir Ridley Scott embraces his epic blockbuster side when bringing the size and scope of the story of Moses to the big screen.
Speaking with the men behind the massive spectacle, itís clear that they did what they could to keep things light on the set. In fact, while interviewing Edgerton about the scale of the picture, and Ridley Scottís use of multiple cameras to capture the vast action on screen, he talked to me about stopping in the moment and reminding yourself, ďItís just a movie.Ē
It looks like Star Trek 3 has lost another director. With Roberto Orci bowing out, here is a list of other names that could certainly handle the task of directing a Star Trek film.
Though no stranger to exploring worlds of the strong and fantastic, Director Ridley Scott has still never touched a comic book movie, and finally admitted he has no interest.
Exodus: Gods And Kings is only a couple of weeks away from release, and yet it can't seem to shake one of its biggest controversies. For once though, a Biblical film isn't making waves with its doctrine... it's making them with its casting.
While director Ridley Scott is currently hard at work putting together all of the pieces to make The Martian, his next sci-fi thriller starring Matt Damon, that doesn't mean that he isn't still thinking about the future of Prometheus. The project doesn't have a release date yet, but it has been making its way through development, and now the filmmaker has revealed an interesting new piece of info about what he has planned: there will be a new kind of alien.
Not too long ago, we thought that Interstellar was going to be one of the longest movie released this year. Not that there's anything wrong with a long movie, but depending on what you're going to see, your interpretation of what constitutes as "long" will vary. That having been said, we've now got a new candidate for the longest film in 2014, as well as the film that will most likely divide the audience in two. That movie is Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods And Kings.
DC has a unique opportunity to define a new chapter of Wonder Woman's legacy with this 2017 movie. With the right director, DC could craft something spectacular and iconic with Wonder Woman. But who'd be up to the task of taking on a superheroine movie that even Joss Whedon found tricky? Here are five filmmakers who could do Wonder Woman justice.
Locusts. Frogs. Fire and brimstone. A screaming Christian Bale, trying to out-Heston the greatest on-screen Moses the industry has ever seen. And we get a towering Red Sea, ready to crash down on all who dare part it.
Ridley Scott gives us a status update on the Prometheus and Blade Runner sequels. What he says about his plans for Prometheus 2 may surprise you.
Despite the fact that Ridley Scott's new movie Exodus: Gods and Kings in largely set in ancient Egypt, you'll notice that the cast of lead actors is basically completely dominated by white dudes. Over the past few months, the movie has been dealing with a bit of controversy due to this aspect - some moviegoers claiming "whitewashing" - and as a result representatives for the movie have had to explain why the casting was handled the way it was.
That quote might give those protesting the movie little comfort, but there's not much that Edgerton can say, really. Taking a stand on this issue means second-guessing the multi-million dollar machine that just employed him, at a time when he cannot afford to do that with his career.
It is going to take one of the most charismatic actors around to pull off Whiteís unrestrained audacity and his beyond-superb skills in a kitchen. You know how movies often have to fake it when actors are playing the piano? Thatís whatíll have to happen at any point when White is shown using his knife.
And Scott could very well be casting his lot with the God Squad in order to score another hit. Once he finishes work on Exodus he'll be headed to the red planet with Matt Damon on The Martian. That film already has an early 2016 release date, which means they'll take their time putting it together, most likely.
The new trailer paints Exodus as a wide-sweeping epic with some really kick-ass visual effects at play - but at its heart it appears to be a much more intimate story. Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton star as Moses and Rhamses, respectively, two men who grew up as brothers but were divided as adults by their personal heritage.
