Exodus: Gods and Kings comes to Digital HD four weeks from now, on March 3, and then it comes to Blu-Ray two weeks after that, on March 17. And now, via High-Def Digest, we have more information regarding what will be on those Blu-Ray sets.

The regular Blu-Ray set will feature the following bonus features:

  • Nine deleted and extended scenes
  • Audio commentary by director Ridley Scott and co-writer Jeffrey Caine
  • The feature-length trivia track ‘The Exodus Historical Guide’

The deluxe Blu-Ray set will include all of the aforementioned bonus features, as well as the 3D version of the film and the following extra features:

  • Keepers of the Covenant documentary including 14 “enhancement pods”
  • The Lawgiver’s Legacy: Moses Throughout History
  • The Gods and Kings Archive
  • Promotional featurettes including the HBO First Look special
  • 11 galleries

Sounds impressive. It’s certainly more than we got on any version of the Noah Blu-Ray. Which reminds me: I have not yet heard whether there will be any retailer “exclusive” editions of Exodus, but I’ll keep my eyes open, just in case.

Here is the cover art for the regular Blu-Ray set:

Incidentally, it’s been a few weeks since I last said anything about the film’s box-office performance, so here’s a quick update:

The film is currently playing in only 171 theatres in North America, seven weeks after it opened in over 3,500, and its domestic total currently stands at $64.7 million.

Overseas, the film finished its international rollout last weekend by opening in Japan, where it placed fourth at the box office, behind Big Hero 6, Annie and a Japanese film called Joker Game. The film has earned a total of $194.6 million overseas so far. (A comparison of the foreign grosses for Exodus and Noah at Box Office Mojo indicates that Exodus might have earned less money everywhere but the Netherlands.)

That adds up to a worldwide total of $259.3 million so far.

So here is how the film ranks in the filmographies of its director and two co-stars:
