Exodus: Gods And Kings Featurette


It’s always good to see a new Ridley Scott movie and this will be his latest.  You might remember the last time Scott tackled the swords and sandals genre, it turned out kinda awesome.

“From acclaimed director Ridley Scott comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.”

Cast iron cast here with Sigourney Weaver, Joel Edgerton, Christian Bale and Aaron Paul.  For this featurette, Ridley Scott notes:

“I felt there was a beauty to the massive scale of [the material]… You’re working with at least 700 crew plus the 4,000 extras.  And of course the armies will be expanded exponentially: 4,000 will be tiled and grown into 20,000.”
Exodus: Gods And Kings is released December 12, 2014.

    Nice. Obligatory mention of Gladiator being mine.

    It’ll be entertaining to watch this alongside Cecile B’s version. Of course, in those days they hired crews of 1000+ and semi-built the most excessively extravagant sets known to man. True indulgence, true pageantry.
