BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The only battle bigger than the one between humans and xenomorphs is the one between the films about humans and xenomorphs. Both Ridley Scott and Neil Blomkamp were working on their own films set in the Alien world.
20th Century Fox has released the first synopsis for the recently renamed Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant. But where is any mention of Noomi Rapace?
Alien is a horror and science fiction classic that spawned sequels, prequels, and spinoffs. As successful as the franchise has been, however, director Ridley Scott has one big regret.
Horror fans love to argue about which of their favorite movies is the scariest, but a bunch of experts got together and came up with what very well may be the definitive list.
The Alien franchise seems to have the resiliency of a xenomorph. Itís had good sequels, bad sequels, terrible spin-offs and one prequel that wasnít a prequel except it was a prequel.
While itís possible that the storm affecting the East Coast could reduce the filmís overall performance, strong reviews and powerful word-of-mouth likely will continue to keep The Martian near the top of the box office charts for weeks to come. With or without space diapers.†
A few weeks back, Emily Blunt discussed the lack of female action stars, and now, Jessica Chastain is speaking out on a similar notion. Specifically, Chastain is finding big problems with female superheroes these days, problems that need to see some change.
Ridley Scott is largely responsible for unleashing one of the scariest movie aliens of all time on audiences, but the question of whether or not he actually believes there are extraterrestrials was still up in the air.
Now that we know Prometheus 2 isn't Prometheus 2 anymore, director Ridley Scott has been talking about the project, and he has some very interesting things to say.
What do you think? Was it wise to adopt a title that leans on the Alien brand? Will this next film be the one that closes the gap between Scottís seminal Alien movie, and these latest efforts? Weigh in below.†
Female action characters tend to be a bit more rare. But, there are always the oneís that stick out--female action characters that to this day we still are talking about, the iconic ones that newer action stars are inspired by.
As filmmakers tend to be people who love movies, they also find motivation and inspiration in the work of others, and Ridley Scott just revealed how Star Wars compelled him to make Alien.
Alien vs. Predator is not exactly the favorite film in the franchise, but according to Sigourney Weaver, it has a huge, and negative, impact on the Alien saga.
Ridley Scott has said that while Prometheus isnít a prequel to Alien, and there may not necessarily be a causal link between the two, it does exist in that world, and the ties between the two are strong indeed.
In honor of the release of Run All Night, weíd like to share with you some of the best examples of bottle storytellinIt's amazing what can happen in a day. Just ask any of the protagonists in any of the films on this list!
Neill Blomkamp clearly has big plans for the Alien franchise, because he envisions that he may already have a follow up idea for his upcoming fifth installment.
If you thought Neill Blomkamp's new Alien film was going to conveniently forget a film or two, think again. It looks like continuity will be enforced, at least if Blomkamp's latest remarks have anything to say about it.
Itís pretty easy to argue that Sigourney Weaverís Ellen Ripley never really got the send-off that she deserved in the franchise, but thatís an issue, it seems, that Weaver and director Neill Blomkamp are eager to do away with forever in the next chapter of the series.
I could see Louis CK dying horribly in an opening sequence that kicks the new Alien movie off in bloody fashion. Cast him as a military grunt who gets an alien tail through the chest? Have a laser blaster remove his head accidentally?
When Chappie director Neill Blomkamp revealed concept art a month ago of a new Alien idea he was working on featuring Ripley herself, the Internet, understandably, lost its shit. In the time since that reveal, many have wondered about the exact details of the situation, but fortunately we recently got the chance to speak with Weaver herself to get the behind-the-scenes story.
