Exodus: Gods and Kings – Exclusive VFX Breakdown
Twenty-five years ago, a film that looked like Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings would have been unimaginable. It just goes to show how far computer generated imagery has come that many audiences no longer even think about the all the hard work that visual effects artists pour into a major production like this new biblical epic, turning green screens into epic vistas and smaller sets into enormous architectural behemoths.
So if you need a reminder, CraveOnline has a little treat for you: an exclusive slider that shows just how Exodus: Gods and Kings was filmed, and what it looks like now, simultaneously. Just use your mouse, grab the white diamond and drag it back and forth to switch between the before and after imagery, or to watch them both side by side. You can see more behind the scenes wizardry on the newly revamped Exodus: Gods and Kings website starting tomorrow, March 4, 2015.
Exodus: Gods and Kings was directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator), and stars Christian Bale (The Dark Knight), Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom) along a massive ensemble cast in the latest adaptation of the tale of Moses from The Old Testament. Exodus: Gods and Kings is now available on Digital HD, and arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on March 17, 2015.
