BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
Simon Kinsberg has revealed that Ridley Scott's next film is none other than his science fiction adaptation of The Martian with Matt Damon. But what does this mean for Prometheus 2?
Earlier this year, the director's seat for the upcoming sci-fi story The Martian was vacated right when Matt Damon was announced to star. In the wake of that development, the studio had to start searching for a replacement, and when it comes to space, solitude and sci-fi, one of the first names you go to is Ridley Scott.
In adapting Agatha Christie's great mystery novel Murder on the Orient Express back in 1974, director Sidney Lumet brought together one of the best casts you could imagine. The credits were filled with great actors, the most notable including Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins and Vanessa Redgrave.
Scott, whose most recent film The Counselor is currently underwhelming audiences and critics, is reported to be quite the football fan, according to Deadline. He hasnít taken lightly to stories over the years of players such as Junior Seau and Dave Duerson experiencing health problems so severe that suicide was their preferred answer, leaving their brains to science to study the overall impact that their years in the game had on their brains.
Will there ever actually be a Blade Runner sequel? I would put my money on no, for all the same reasons you expect-- nobody actually wants it, the original is perfectly good, Harrison Ford is too cranky to consider it. Well, scratch that last one, actually. Somehow IGN got Ford to admit, in the midst of press rounds for Ender's Game , that he'd be game for the sequel. See it for yourself in this video
The latest clip from Ridley Scottís The Counselor is on its own pretty confusing. What crime are Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender discussing? What is Pitt advising when he suggests ďdonít do itĒ? Why is he talking about Mickey Rourke?
Ridley Scott appears to be pulling out all the stops when it comes to casting his upcoming film Exodus. While the film already has Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton attached to play Moses and the evil Egyptian pharaoh Rameses, today it's been revealed that the movie will actually be an incredibly impressive ensemble.
