“Everything is as big as we can build and, at the same time, Ridley has bigger ideas.”
Go behind the scenes of Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings to see how the massive world was created.
Exodus: Gods and Kings: From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) 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 (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 400,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
The film’s writing credits are: Screen Story by Bill Collage & Adam Cooper, Screenplay by Steven Zaillian.
Set in an alternate world of various Grimm fairy tales, the film intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests… What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy musical eventually becomes a meaningful tale about responsibility, the problems that come from wishes, and the legacy that we leave our children.

Featurette after the cut. Also after the cut, probably a comment or two about how a remake like this is “unnecessary.” Because everything else any of us have ever watched is always so essential.
What a coup for HBO if Michael Douglas were to win the Best Actor prize at Cannes just a few hours before Behind the Candelabra airs tonight. Another clip after the cut.
Martin Scorsese continues to devote his energy to The Film Foundation with support for their restoration and preservation efforts to save deteriorating classic movies — many on the brink of being lost forever. Mini-lecture on the task of reconstructing Laurence Olivier’s Richard III after the cut.
Looks as if the production design of Oblivion will be the true star attraction. A few featurettes after the cut.
For those of you who like to know exactly what to expect from your unexpected journeys.
Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd uncensored after the cut.
This gives you a pretty good idea of what the movie Hitchcock is about:
Just my own note on this: making stuff about Alma and Hitchcock works to create a more dramatic picture but beware of filling in what you don’t know about people. This is a fictional account of their relationship. The only thing people know for sure is that she worked closely with him during their entire relationship. She wasn’t acknowledged, that’s also true. But beyond that…think of it as “just a movie” and you will enjoy it more than quibbling with the facts.
New featurette takes us on a tour of the space ship Prometheus.
