From 20th Century Fox comes these three new posters for Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic, ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings.’ Starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro and Indira Varma, ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ arrives in cinemas on December 12th in the US and December 26th in the UK.
The synopsis for ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ is as follows: From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS, the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharoah Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
A few days ago Marvel released the first official poster and trailer for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ and now we have this great unofficial one-sheet for the film by Matt Ferguson to feast our eyes on. Joss Whedon’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch), played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff (Quicksilver), played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
‘Captain America: Winter Soldier’ star Sebastian Stan has reportedly joined the cast of ‘Ricki and the Flash,’ the Meryl Streep-led comedy drama from director Jonathan Demme and screenwriter Diablo Cody. Stan will play Joshua, the estranged son to Streep’s rocker mom in the film. The synopsis given for ‘Ricki and the Flash’ is as follows: “Ricki and the Flash is the funny and touching story of a rock n’ roll-loving woman who chased her tattered dream at the price of her family, but gets a last chance to, perhaps, make things right. Streep, the most Oscar-nominated actor in history, is well known for her singing prowess on stage and screen (Mamma Mia, Into the Woods), but Ricki is a new gig even for the musically gifted star: a guitar-wielding, hard rockin’ mamma by night and grocery store checkout lady by day.”
