Two years, two films set in ancient Egypt, two controversies over the fact that some or all of the top-billed actors are of European descent. But where Exodus: Gods and Kings director Ridley Scott simply shrugged off the boycotters, Gods of Egypt director Alex Proyas — and the studio behind his film — have decided to apologize.
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.
