Behind the Scenes: Exodus – Gods and Kings (2014)
As much as I loved hunting for plastic eggs and stuffing wads of Peeps into my mouth, my favorite Easter tradition as a kid was watching the network TV broadcast of The Ten Commandments (1956), which took roughly 14 hours with commercials. In keeping with that tradition of consuming Old Testament tales close to Jesus-centric holidays, Ridley Scott’s 150-minute, $140-million version of Moses’ biopic hits theaters tomorrow.
Exodus: Gods and Kings was shot with the Red Dragon on soundstages at Pinewood Studios in London and on location in Spain and the Canary Islands. Here’s a look at the making of the film. The frame grabs come from 20th Century Fox’s series of behind the scenes videos and B-roll video from ScreenSlam.
