  4. I do like that word skulduggery. :) Fingers crossed, Marco Polo has some potential. Such an interesting story.

    1. I expect it to be very exotic and they want to make it really luxurious and expensive which is why Starz gave up on it since they already have expensive DA VINCI'S DEMONS

  5. When did Bruce Wayne go to ancient Egypt?....Moses WAS BATMAN! ;-)

  6. Got some heavy hitters in Moses.
    Hieroglyph sounds good
    and Lorenzo is the perfect Marco Polo. Didn't Tony Curtis play Marco Polo YEARS ago?

    1. yep, he isn't really a Biblical type :) He was supposed to be Noah before Russell took over the role, so he became Moses instead

      Delete
    2. I guess it's good on the career if you can be flexible like that, but he wouldn't have passes as Noah for me either lol.

      Delete
    3. he is certainly more fitted for Moses than Turturro is for a pharaoh LOL Can't wait to see Aaron Paul in loin cloth though :)

  8. Noah, God is Not Dead, Son of God, and now Exodus. Is 2014 the year Hollywood went religious?

  11. Quite a group of movies. It'll be interesting to see Christian Bale as Moses. With Ridley Scott as director it should be good.

  13. Too bad Noah is banned in the Middle East. It might be the same for Exodus. :(

    1. I do have an understanding for the ban of certain films in the Middle East, tones of them are deeply disrespectful and like to bend facts and history. I'm for example always deeply disgusted when a US movie has a Russian or a Muslim for a villain

      Delete
    2. I agree. There are quite a lot of US films that deeply disrespect other cultures. It shows a decided lack of sensitivity and understanding.

    3. two things that will be the end of us

  14. Hieroglyph sounds amazing and I cannot wait to see it.

    And Lorenzo is tasty...Wow, it took me awhile to get past his amazing eyes.
