EXODUS: GODS & KINGS

Christian Bale & 20th Century Fox presented select scenes (w/ temporary music & unfinished visual effects) from “Exodus: Gods & Kings,” which opens in theaters December.  Bale admitted his knowledge of organized religion was limited at best.  Being an avid researcher, he dove head first into reading up on all types of religious literature.  His ‘Go To’ religious film back in the day was, Charlton Heston in “Ten Commandments”

When director Ridley Scott first told Bale about this project, Christian asked, “Swords & Sandals?” To which Ridley replied, “Yeah, straight up.”  To my surprise, Bale admitted part of his research included watching two classic period comedies, Monty Python’s “Life of Brian,” and Mel Brooks, “History of the World Part 1.”  Do be serious, you have to be aware of humor. Bale needed to gauge what was funny & what wasn’t for Exodus God & Kings. In fact, when things were very heavy on the set, he’d think about those funny movies to lighten the mood.  Those films were used as a guide.  The cast includes: Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, Sir Ben Kingsley, John Tuturro & Aaron Paul.

The footage I saw was outstanding.  The entire theater rumbled as the horse-drawn chariots raced along the desert floor.  It’s all there: The Burning Bush, parting of the Red Sea, 10 plagues terrorizing Egypt, 400 slaves in bondage.  When it’s all said & done, EXODUS will contain over 1,500 visual special effects shots. In Hollywood terms, it’s hard to fathom that this epic was shot in a mere 74 days. This is what movie making is all about & I for one, can’t wait.  Here’s a new trailer & a behind-the-scenes peek at Ridley Scott & his crew.

David Koechner Cheap Thrills Interview

David Koechner is into ‘Cheap Thrills.’  The versatile actor stars as a big money douchebag along with his hot wife, Violet (Sara Paxton.) The instigating couple happens across two down-on-their-luck dudes, Craig (Pat Healy) & Vince (Ethan Embry). Taking place all in one night, the man & wife manipulators accelerate their agenda.  You’ve heard of playing ‘Truth or Dare,’ this more like a game of “Dare or Dare.” It’s non-stop until it goes to a very sinister level. This one is not for the squeamish.  Cheap Thrills is available now on VOD and will open in select theaters March 28th.  Follow Leo Quinones on Twitter @MovieInterview or Instagram at @TheMovieInterview
