Gods of Egypt caused such an uproar, the director was forced to apologize. But it’s just the latest in a long line of movies where characters of color are played by white actors.

What Exodus may have lacked in script and casting, it made up for in spectacle. The plagues and ancient temples were insane. Behold the magic in these before and after wipes.
This was a weird year for movies. The box office was weak, but also, most films didn't deserve love or hate. They were just... okay. But the genre movies that did stand out were either brilliant experiments, or horrible misfires. Here are the 10 best and 10 worst science fiction and fantasy movies of 2014.

And yet, like a voice from a burning bush, Exodus is an unbelievable event that will nevertheless lead thousands of people on a terrifying quest — to movie theaters.

Ridley Scott's Christian-Bale-as-Moses epic Exodus: Gods and Kings won't be out until December, but he's already working on another Old Testament story: King David. So we're forced to wonder: Are Biblical epics officially back?
So Ridley Scott decided to cast a dude named Christian to play Jewish superhero Moses in his movie Exodus: Gods and Kings. But if this trailer is any indication, at least the movie won't be deviating from the original book when it comes to showing us the ten badass plagues.
The more we see of Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings, the more excited we get. But maaaaybe not for the same reasons we're excited for other things. This movie looks ridiculous in all the best ways, and the posters are not helping.
