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-DF-02915_2917RExodus: 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.

Box office: Exodus: Gods and Kings falls out of the top ten

The film has already, in fact, been snubbed by the Academy’s visual-effects and makeup & hairstyling branches, which neglected to include Ridley Scott’s Bible epic on their shortlists.

There is still hope for some of the other below-the-line talent, though, a few of whom are still promoting the film — and their role in making it — in the trades and other outlets. What follows is a round-up of some of the more recent interviews.
