Joe Biz Movie Trivia - Exodus Gods and Kings



Exodus Gods And Kings

=======================================================================
10.  Joel Edgerton found out about getting the role of Ramses when he received multiple congratulatory emails from people who had heard about his casting online.

========================================================================

========================================================================
8.  The Blu Ray is to feature 15-20 minutes of extended scenes. Ridley Scott said the original cut of the film was 4 and a half hours, and he says it's possible it will be released onto DVD.
======================================================================

======================================================================
7.  To prepare for his role as Moses, Christian Bale quickly surpassed Sunday school basics and delved into scripture and literary works. He read the first five books of the Bible, the Quran, as well as Louis Ginzberg's classic, "Legends of the Jews" and Jonathan Kirsch's "Moses, A Life."
=======================================================================

======================================================================
6.  Christian Bale is the second to play both Batman and Moses. The first was Val Kilmer, who played Batman in Batman Forever (1995) and was the voice of Moses in _Prince of Egypt (1998)_.
=======================================================================

======================================================================
5.  In this film Joel Edgerton battles Christian Bale who played Batman in the Dark Knight Trilogy. In Warrior, Joel Edgerton battles Tom Hardy who played Bane in the Dark Knight Trilogy.

=======================================================================
4.  Despite the main characters being of African and/or Jewish descent, white actors were cast as the main characters, while minor role such as slaves and thieves were cast as black people. Furthermore, Ridley Scott claimed the movie would not be financially viable without white actors. This has lead to discussions of whitewashing and structural racism in Hollywood.
========================================================================

======================================================================

======================================================================
2.  In an interview with Esquire magazine, Ridley Scott called religion "the biggest source of evil", explaining, "Everyone is tearing each other apart in the name of their personal god. And the irony is, by definition, they're probably worshiping the same god". In another interview, Scott claimed that being an agnostic was a good quality for directing a Biblical story "because I've got to convince myself the story works."
=======================================================================

====================================================================
1.  Christian Bale almost missed out on his role in the film as he was considered overweight. This was because Bale was still working off the weight he had gained for his role in American Hustle (2013). Bale however was able to lose the weight and reach the physique required for this film.
