"Even if we didn't know about a Ferguson, or an Eric Garner or a Michael Brown … they were going on," Winfrey told theGrio.com at the New York City premiere of the Martin Luther King Jr. inspired film, "Selma" Sunday night.

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" starring Christian Bale outdid "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" during its opening weekend at the box office.
The Ridley Scott-directed biblical epic opened in 3,503 locations across the U.S. and earned a total of $24.5 million at the box office, according to Variety. "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" opened last month and has earned over $200 million worldwide, but the Jennifer Lawrence-starring flick was finally knocked from its top position at the box office following the "Exodus" premiere.

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" received mixed box office news over the weekend, earning $24.5 million in its debut and topping the U.S. box office, but failing to hit any industry heights. Christian group Faith Driven Consumer has meanwhile rated the Ridley Scott film 2.5 out of 5 stars, noting that it largely minimizes God's role in the Biblical story.
The Hollywood Reporter said that the film, starring Christian Bale, earned what industry insiders expected it to earn, but did not produce "the strongest of starts" for 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment film. The film, which focuses on the story of Moses, cost $140 million to make, and will rely on strong earnings in the new few holiday weekends in order to deliver a decent return.
"Exodus" has received a number of negative reviews in the press, while Faith Driven Consumer, which routinely rates Bible-based movies both on their entertainment and faith-based value, gave the production a 2.5 out of 5 stars score. more >>
