BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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 Scott’s seminal Alien movie, and these latest efforts? Weigh in below.
We know that Prometheus is linked to Alien, but exactly how has been muddy and vague. However, Prometheus 2 just got a new title and that connection is now explicit.
Ridley Scott is kind of fortunate that he's getting the opportunity to make Prometheus 2. But he doesn't want to stop there. In fact, Sir Ridley has got so many ideas for the franchise that he wants to make Prometheus 3 and Prometheus 4.
The end of PrometheusPrometheus 2 will look to address the biggest of these uncertainties.
At this stage, Ridley Scott's Prometheus 2 most definitely stands as a mystery, with not much known about exactly how the movie will pick up the story where its predecessor left things. Next to nothing is known about the plot, but at the very least we now do know that we will get to see the return of Michael Fassbender's android character, David.
Even though he's 77-years-old, director Ridley Scott works at a rapid fire pace. The Martian hasn't even hit theaters yet, but he's already hard at work on his next movie, Prometheus 2.
The Alien timeline has grown muddy over the years, and from what we have been hearing, there will be a few more twists and turns before the picture becomes more clear.
Since 2012, a Prometheus sequel has been something that's been talked about, but that we were never sure was going to happen. But that's changed and now we know when Prometheus 2 is going to start production.
By now we should all know that District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp is planning to make a fifth Alien movie. But with Prometheus 2 in the works for 2016, will the new Alien overlap with what Ridley Scott’s planning?
When it was revealed earlier this afternoon that Neill Blomkamp had officially signed on to direct a new film in the Alien franchise, one of the big lingering questions that we had was in regard to how it would relate to the also-currently-in-development Prometheus 2.
While director Ridley Scott is currently hard at work putting together all of the pieces to make The Martian, his next sci-fi thriller starring Matt Damon, that doesn't mean that he isn't still thinking about the future of Prometheus. The project doesn't have a release date yet, but it has been making its way through development, and now the filmmaker has revealed an interesting new piece of info about what he has planned: there will be a new kind of alien.
After a climactic battle that eventually created the Xenomorphs from the Alien series, we were left with Shaw and David (or what's left of him) heading off to find more of the answers that she's been searching for.
Ridley Scott gives us a status update on the Prometheus and Blade Runner sequels. What he says about his plans for Prometheus 2 may surprise you.
The first issue of Dark Horse Comics' Prometheus: Fire and Stone is out. Does it hold some clues as to what we can expect in a Prometheus sequel?
Sir Ridley Scott likes to keep a number of irons in the fire. At one point, the legendary filmmaker’s IMDB had nearly as many “announced” projects as it did completed features. The Englishman likes to work, even at the older age of 76, and he has several sandboxes in which he’s able to play.
Simon Kinsberg has revealed that Ridley Scott's next film is none other than his science fiction adaptation of The Martian with Matt Damon. But what does this mean for Prometheus 2?
Besides Michael Fassbender's film owning performance as David 8, one of the other enjoyable performances in Prometheus was that of Guy Pearce's Peter Weyland. Despite some logistical issues from the first film, Pearce would actually love to come back to the world of Ridley Scott's Alien prequel, and he even has some comments on just how that could happen.
In addition to being a continuation of the story that we saw established in the first Prometheus, the sequel is reportedly being restructured to be more "alien-y" and have a tone that fits closer with the rest of the franchise. What's more, sources say that the film will feature multiple "David" androids, which means that Michael Fassbender will be working overtime on the project (which is great considering he was easily the best part of the first movie).
Last year Ridley Scott's return to the Alien franchise with Prometheus was hotly anticipated. But once fanboys and critics finally saw what Scott had in store with his big budget prequel, the film proved to be pretty polarizing with some calling it a total disaster of plot holes and fan service, and others proclaiming it a misunderstood masterpiece.
