If you’re a Bible-movie buff and a space-movie buff like me, then you can’t help but notice how the two genres sometimes overlap.
Exodus: Gods and Kings came out on DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK a few days ago, and Flickering Myth has posted a new excerpt from the disc’s bonus features in which Ridley Scott discusses the casting of Aaron Paul as Joshua. As it happens, I have not yet linked to a number of interviews that Paul did while promoting the film a few months ago, so I figured this was as good a time as any to round them up.
Exodus: Gods and Kings has been available on DVD and Blu-Ray in North America for just over a month, now — and I promise I’ll post a few comments about that in the near future, once I’ve gotten some other assignments out of my system — but apparently it won’t be released in the United Kingdom until next week.
In anticipation of the film’s British home-video release, an interview with Christian Bale popped up on The Huffington Post UK this week, and it reminded me that I’ve been sitting on a few interviews that Bale did to promote the film’s theatrical release a few months ago — so here, at long last, is a round-up of all those interviews.
Exodus: Gods and Kings came out on Digital HD today, and the studio has revamped its official website so that it now features three new image galleries and several new videos on the making of the film. At least three other websites have posted new video clips to mark the film’s digital release, too. Check ’em all out below the jump.
Box office: Exodus: Gods and Kings slips some more, but is now the third-highest-grossing Bible movie worldwide
Exodus: Gods and Kings continued to fall down the charts in its fifth week at the North American box office.
Ridley Scott’s Moses movie earned just $1.1 million this week, which represents a drop of 71.2% since last week. That was easily the steepest slide in the Top 20, and the film’s per-screen average of $963 was also the lowest in the Top 20 this week.
Exodus has seen its audience shrink every week since its underwhelming debut last month — even over the holidays, when most films get a box-office boost. Despite opening at #1 less than a month ago, this week it landed at #18.
