Happy new year! And, really, what better way is there to ring in 2015 (besides a thousand bad ‘Back to the Future Part II’ jokes) than some sweet concept art from a movie that never was and likely never will be? Yesterday, ‘District 9’ and ‘Elysium’ director Neill Blomkamp tweeted out a whole bunch of images from an ‘Alien’ movie he was working on, apparently by himself and without the authorization of 20th Century Fox. (“This has nothing to do with the studio,” Blomkamp tweeted, adding “They didn’t really even know I was working on it ha.”)

There was already some controversy leading up to the release of Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings,’ as the director dismissed the white-washing of the cast of the film, which is set in ancient Egypt. Scott brought even more criticism down on both himself and the film when he explained that he wouldn’t have been able to get funding by casting “Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such” in the lead role. Although the film has already been released in the U.S., it’s still causing controversy, as both Egypt and Morocco have officially banned the release of Scott’s latest film.

Director Ridley Scott has certainly come under quite a bit of fire lately for the white-washed cast of ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ and his explicit dismissal of his critics. But Scott isn’t letting the negativity get to him, as he’s still moving ahead and giving updates on two high-profile sequels: ‘Prometheus 2’ and ‘Blade Runner 2.’ In a new interview, Scott opened up about the plot of the former and the reassuring simplicity of the latter.

The controversy over the mostly white casting of Ridley Scott’s new Biblical epic ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ continues to draw controversy, mostly because Scott himself continues to say controversial things. Last month, when asked by Variety why he chose to fill the parts of Middle-Eastern characters with the likes of white men like Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, Scott explained that he couldn’t “mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such.”

You could comfortably bake several loaves of bread—plus a cake or two—in the time it takes to get through ‘Exodus.’ This film does run an hour shorter than Cecil B. DeMille’s famous version of ‘The Ten Commandments’ from 1956, but at times it feels just as long; maybe longer.

If you were actually spending time with your families yesterday during the Thanksgiving holiday instead of watching football, chances are you didn’t see this new, 90-second TV spot for ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings.’ The latest extended peek at the film is battle-heavy, promising that Ridley Scott’s biblical epic intends to deliver on more than just a little brotherly melodrama.

What a great day for dinosaurs who refuse to die! First a new ‘Jurassic Park’ trailer and now, via Variety, a report on the sequel to ‘Blade Runner,’ which has been rumored for most of the 30 years, since Ridley Scott released the original film back in 1982. Scott says that, yes, you can expect Harrison Ford to return as detective Rick Deckard, but no, you shouldn’t expect Scott to direct the film; instead he’ll just be serving as a producer

Earlier today saw FOX stealing a bit of British thunder with its own adaptation of ‘Luther’ but it seems FX intends to mine far deeper in bringing the A-list Tom Hardy to the small screen. The cable network has officially picked up the rights to air Hardy’s forthcoming period drama collaboration with Ridley Scott and ‘Locke’’s Steven Knight, diamond adventurer drama ‘Taboo.’

The final 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' trailer is an anomaly because it's the first piece of marketing for the film that doesn't make us shake our heads in disbelief. After several painfully dull trailers, we finally have a glimpse at the movie that doesn't make us guffaw. For the first time, this actually looks like a Ridley Scott film.
