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-moses-redseaIt’s been a while since I posted any videos for Exodus: Gods and Kings, but the studio has released several new TV spots, most of which feature new footage of Moses’ family, Mount Sinai, Moses tossing his sword into the Red Sea, and so on.

Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings (dir. Ridley Scott, 2014)

exodus-DF-02770Early on in Exodus: Gods and Kings, there’s a scene in which Moses, who is still an Egyptian prince oblivious to his Hebrew heritage, confronts an Egyptian viceroy named Hegep, who is supposed to be building a new city for the Pharaoh but seems to have diverted some of the funds towards his own luxurious lifestyle. Hegep tries to deflect Moses’ attention by pointing to the troublesome Hebrew slaves, and says he needs more resources to deal with them.
