Release Date For 'Steve Jobs' Movie Confirmed


Michael Fassbender Steve Jobs Danny Boyle Seth Rogen Kate Winslet Leonardo Dicaprio Christian Bale

The troubled Steve Jobs biopic has finally announced a theatrical release date of October 9th this year. Strangely enough, that’s exactly the kind of time that judges start to think about awards nominations…

Shooting for the film, which has been the centre of a great deal of speculation because of its lengthy gestation and uncertain funding, began last month in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Danny Boyle, the man behind cult favourites such as Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire and 28 Days Later, as well as the London Olympics opening ceremony in 2012, is in the director’s chair.

Christian Bale Annoyed Ridley Scott On Set Of 'Exodus'


Christian Bale Ridley Scott

Christian Bale apparently annoyed director Ridley Scott on the set of new biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings because he learned about his character (Moses) and kept on pressing for more inclusions to the script.

Bale is renowned for putting huge amounts of effort into his roles, as anyone who has seen Harsh Times or The Fighter will testify. He told World Entertainment News Network: “I kept on annoying Ridley with how fascinating the character was and how much we could add, saying, ‘Can't we put this in?’ But he would say, ‘Well Christian, that's an eight-hour long film... Please shut up; I'm trying to get through a day's work!’”

Egypt Bans Ridley Scott's 'Exodus:Gods And Kings Over "Historical Inaccuracies"


Ridley Scott Christian Bale

Egypt is allegedly trying to keep Moses out (again). The BBC repots that Ridley Scott’s epic Exodus: Gods And Kings, has been banned in the Middle Eastern country over “historical inaccuracies” depicted in the film.

Exodus Gods and kingsChristian Bale in Exodus: Gods and Kings

The country’s censorship board list film's depiction of the Jewish people as having built the Pyramids, and that an earthquake, not a miracle by Moses, caused the Red Sea to part as examples of the “historical inaccuracies.” that can be found in the movie.

Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods And Kings' Brings Spectacle To Cinemas


Ridley Scott Christian Bale Joel Edgerton

Ridley Scott is no stranger to the biblical epic. From 'Gladiator' to 'Kingdom of Heaven', he has proved that he's fearless when creating a massive-scale movie. Although he has long been criticised for skimping on the emotional engagement, offering just enough sketchy melodrama to hold audience interest, but little more.

Christian Bale in 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'
Christian Bale in 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'

His new movie 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' is his biggest yet, a gigantic movie retelling of the clash between Moses and his adoptive brother Pharaoh Ramses, played with muscly energy by Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, respectively. And critics have agreed that the film is certainly spectacular.

Exodus: Gods And Kings Review


Good

Aside from impressive 21st century digital effects, this new take on the Moses story pales in comparison to Cecil B. DeMille's iconic 1956 version, The Ten Commandments, which is far more resonant and intensely dramatic. Biblical epics are tricky to get right, and Ridley Scott certainly knows how to make them look and feel terrific (see Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven), but his films are generally about the spectacle rather than the human emotion. So this version of the biblical story will only appeal to viewers who have never seen a better one.

It's set in 1300 BC, when the Israelites have been in captivity in Egypt for 400 years. Now rumours of liberation are circling, centring on Moses (Christian Bale), the adopted son of Pharaoh Seti (John Turturro), raised as a brother alongside the future Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton). When it emerges that Moses is actually a Hebrew, he is sent into exile in the desert, where he finds a new calling as a shepherd and marries his new boss' sexy daughter Sefora (Maria Valverde). Moses also has a run-in with the Jewish God, who appears in the form of a young boy (Isaac Andrews), challenging Moses to free the Israelites. As Moses attempts to spark a slave revolt, God sends seven horrific plagues to convince Ramses to let his people go.

The script struggles to have its cake and eat it too, finding rational explanations for the plagues and miracles while still maintaining God's supernatural intervention. It's a rather odd mix that demonstrates just how compromised the movie is: it's a big blockbuster rather than a story about people. Several elements work well, such as depicting God as a boy, although the screenplay never manages to make much of the female characters. And only Ben Mendelsohn manages to inject any proper personality as the weaselly overseer of the slaves. Bale and Edgerton both catch the complexity of their characters' situations, privilege mixed with personal revelations. But Scott is more interested in parting the Red Sea than taking them anywhere very interesting.

Why Were Jennifer Lawrence And Amy Adams Paid Less Than Their Male Co-Stars?


Jennifer Lawrence Amy Adams Bradley Cooper Christian Bale Jeremy Renner

The confidential files just keep on leaking from Sony and the latest batch has ignited some gender-related controversy. Basically, after some financial info was leaked, it was revealed that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams (whose names you may recognize from, well, every headline this year,) were paid significantly less than their male co-stars for their work in the Oscar-winning film American Hustle.

Jennifer LawrenceAmy Adams
It seems like for Lawrence [l] and Adams [r], the pay gap is still a reality.

Aah, pay gap, how we’ve missed you. Well, not really, because the pay gap never went anywhere, not even within the film industry apparently. The good folks over at The Daily Beast have unearthed a message from a message sent from Andrew Gumpert, President of Business Affairs and Administration for Columbia Pictures to Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Doug Belgrad, President of SPE Motion Picture Group on December 5, 2013, confirming that Adams and Lawrence received roughly 7% of the film’s talent budget each. Meanwhile, co-stars Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale got... get ready for this... 9% each. I’m no math expert here, but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t even come out to the often cited statistic of 81 cents to a dollar.

Christian Bale: Moses "Was An Internally Intriguing Character"


Christian Bale Ridley Scott

In the upcoming Ridley Scott film, 'Exodus: Gods and Kings', Christian Bale stars as Moses - the incredibly well-known biblical character, but when asked about the difficulties of portraying such a beloved and iconic character is "that he's so known, and he's so personally loved, and so important to so many people. And people have very very strong opinions about exactly how he should be played."

Yet Bale still took on the job despite the difficulties, especially because he felt that the story of Moses was just so important. 'It's a vital story; it's a resonant story" explains Bale. Furthermore, when Bale began looking into what was supposedly a very simple character, he turned up an awful lot more. Bale discovered that Moses was "a far more complex character that I had ever begun to realise".

Christian Bale Suggests Moses Could Be Considered A "Terrorist"


Christian Bale Ridley Scott

Christian Bale says Moses - the character he plays in Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings - is "far more human and fallible" than he had imagined, going so far as suggesting he could be considered a terrorist.

The Oscar-winning actor watched Monty Python's comedy classic The Life of Brian and Mel Brooks' History of the World: Part One to prepare for the role, not wanting to turn in a haughty performance of the biblical hero.

Christian Bale Admits 'Terminator: Salvation' Didn't Work, "I Know The Reasons"

Terminator Salvation was a disaster. We know that, you know that, everyone knows that. In fact, it's a miracle that Warner Brothers managed to pull in $371 million given the storyline was completely incoherent.

Directed by the hapless McG, the movie starred Christian Bale and Sam Worthington  and used time travel as a key plot element. It speaks volumes that Bale's now infamous on-set rant at director of photography Shane Hurlbut was the most talked about thing during the promotion of the movie.

Natalie Portman Christian Bale Michael Fassbender

Despite the loss of Christian Bale and change of studios, it seems there's still life in the Steve Jobs biopic yet.

Christian Bale Confesses He Was "Jealous" When Ben Affleck Became Batman

Ben Affleck received a heavy backlash from fans once he was confirmed as the new Batman in Zack Snyder's upcoming 'Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice' movie, but nobody was more stunned about the casting news than Christian Bale.

Bale finished his three-movie tenure as the caped crusader after 2012's 'The Dark Knight Rises,' but he recently admitted there was a small part of him that wanted to carry on with the role, and after learning Affleck would be his successor, the British actor was left rather shocked.
