Exodus: Gods And Kings ($268,031,828)

Post by WyldeMan on 12/9/2014, 3:18 pm

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott 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 Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 400,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Which version?

The Director's Cut / The Extended Edition / The Complete Edition / The Epic Edition or my personal favorite The Final Edition, which will be released six months BEFORE the Epic Edition.

The first one that comes out. Only buy one edition though I am sure this movie will have all those editions you just said.

Weekend Report: 'Exodus' is Weak 'King'
by Ray Subers




Exodus: Gods and Kings missed the mark this weekend, though it still easily ruled over another very quiet weekend at the box office.

Meanwhile, Chris Rock's Top Five got off to a decent start, and Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice did big business at a few theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

The Top 12 earned $76.7 million, which makes this one of the slowest weekends of the year. Business will pick up next weekend, though it does look like this will be one of the worst Decembers in recent memory.

Playing at 3,503 locations, Exodus: Gods and Kings opened to an estimated $24.1 million this weekend. That doesn't compare favorably to this year's previous Biblical movies, as its nearly $20 million lower than Noah's debut and roughly on par with the much-less-expensive Son of God.

That's not really an apples-to-apples comparison, though, as opening weekends in December are historically muted. Still, Exodus doesn't look all that impressive against past December releases, either: it was roughly on par with The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader ($24 million) and The Golden Compass ($25.8 million).

While this is definitely not a good debut, it would be premature to write the movie's obituary. If Exodus holds up like the third Narnia movie, it will wind up eclipsing Noah's $101.2 million; that's a fine result when considering the movie's international potential.

At the same time, though, there's reason to believe the movie won't hold up nearly as well as Narnia. It's received horrible reviews (27 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and word-of-mouth seems mixed (it has a poor "B-" CinemaScore). There's a chance, then, that Exodus plays like The Golden Compass, which would translate to a total below $70 million. That would be a hugely disappointing result.

It's likely that Exodus winds up somewhere in between those two. If it follows the pattern of the last two Hobbit movies—which opened on the same weekend over the past two years—Exodus would wrap up in the $85 to $90 million range.

The movie's audience was 54 percent male and 65 percent over the age of 25. 3D screens accounted for 44 percent of the gross, which is an above-average result for the format.

Wow, those numbers are terrible! Guess we're going to have to wait until next December for there to be a run away hit to ignite the box office.

This is one of those movies that I will only get around to after it eventually hits cable and then I spend six months recording and deleting from my DVR, but never getting around to watching until years later. That's what I do with most new titles now.

Is that your review of the movie or just a comment. Judging by what i've read, it could really go either way.

This sums up my joy, over this TURD getting ripped INFINITE new assholes by critics.


Ridley being salty over the white washing criticisms, while looking more pathetic each time trying to justify it.

So with all those confirmed versions coming out for this movie, any chance they can slip in an Unrated or Definitive Edition? I think they might do something like that because people will want to see what the movie contained before the big wigs got their hands on it (Director's vision and what not).

I am always curious to watch movies that critics dislike. I try not to read their reasons for disliking something but then after viewing, I'll see if I had the same reasons.

Wylde, your proposed edition sounds amazing but unless it comes with a slipcover, I'll probably pass.
