BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
Not too long ago, we thought that Interstellar was going to be one of the longest movie released this year. Not that there's anything wrong with a long movie, but depending on what you're going to see, your interpretation of what constitutes as "long" will vary. That having been said, we've now got a new candidate for the longest film in 2014, as well as the film that will most likely divide the audience in two. That movie is Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods And Kings.
DC has a unique opportunity to define a new chapter of Wonder Woman's legacy with this 2017 movie. With the right director, DC could craft something spectacular and iconic with Wonder Woman. But who'd be up to the task of taking on a superheroine movie that even Joss Whedon found tricky? Here are five filmmakers who could do Wonder Woman justice.
Locusts. Frogs. Fire and brimstone. A screaming Christian Bale, trying to out-Heston the greatest on-screen Moses the industry has ever seen. And we get a towering Red Sea, ready to crash down on all who dare part it.
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.
Despite the fact that Ridley Scott's new movie Exodus: Gods and Kings in largely set in ancient Egypt, you'll notice that the cast of lead actors is basically completely dominated by white dudes. Over the past few months, the movie has been dealing with a bit of controversy due to this aspect - some moviegoers claiming "whitewashing" - and as a result representatives for the movie have had to explain why the casting was handled the way it was.
That quote might give those protesting the movie little comfort, but there's not much that Edgerton can say, really. Taking a stand on this issue means second-guessing the multi-million dollar machine that just employed him, at a time when he cannot afford to do that with his career.
It is going to take one of the most charismatic actors around to pull off White’s unrestrained audacity and his beyond-superb skills in a kitchen. You know how movies often have to fake it when actors are playing the piano? That’s what’ll have to happen at any point when White is shown using his knife.
And Scott could very well be casting his lot with the God Squad in order to score another hit. Once he finishes work on Exodus he'll be headed to the red planet with Matt Damon on The Martian. That film already has an early 2016 release date, which means they'll take their time putting it together, most likely.
The new trailer paints Exodus as a wide-sweeping epic with some really kick-ass visual effects at play - but at its heart it appears to be a much more intimate story. Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton star as Moses and Rhamses, respectively, two men who grew up as brothers but were divided as adults by their personal heritage.
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?
Earlier this year, the director's seat for the upcoming sci-fi story The Martian was vacated right when Matt Damon was announced to star. In the wake of that development, the studio had to start searching for a replacement, and when it comes to space, solitude and sci-fi, one of the first names you go to is Ridley Scott.
In adapting Agatha Christie's great mystery novel Murder on the Orient Express back in 1974, director Sidney Lumet brought together one of the best casts you could imagine. The credits were filled with great actors, the most notable including Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins and Vanessa Redgrave.
Scott, whose most recent film The Counselor is currently underwhelming audiences and critics, is reported to be quite the football fan, according to Deadline. He hasn’t taken lightly to stories over the years of players such as Junior Seau and Dave Duerson experiencing health problems so severe that suicide was their preferred answer, leaving their brains to science to study the overall impact that their years in the game had on their brains.
Will there ever actually be a Blade Runner sequel? I would put my money on no, for all the same reasons you expect-- nobody actually wants it, the original is perfectly good, Harrison Ford is too cranky to consider it. Well, scratch that last one, actually. Somehow IGN got Ford to admit, in the midst of press rounds for Ender's Game , that he'd be game for the sequel. See it for yourself in this video
The latest clip from Ridley Scott’s The Counselor is on its own pretty confusing. What crime are Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender discussing? What is Pitt advising when he suggests “don’t do it”? Why is he talking about Mickey Rourke?
Ridley Scott appears to be pulling out all the stops when it comes to casting his upcoming film Exodus. While the film already has Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton attached to play Moses and the evil Egyptian pharaoh Rameses, today it's been revealed that the movie will actually be an incredibly impressive ensemble.
The last time Javier Bardem was in a movie inspired by Cormac McCarthy, he took on a terrible haircut and won an Oscar for his troubles. Now as the No Country for Old Men star and author reunite and bring a starry cast with them, everyone seems to have taken the haircut advice seriously to heart. In this new international trailer for The Counselor
Back in March we learned that Ridley Scott wanted Christian Bale to play Moses in the upcoming biblical epic Exodus, and today we learn that not only has the Prometheus director gotten his way, he's also apparently found an actor to the play the film's central antagonist. Joel Edgerton, last seen playing the awful, racist Tom Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, is now in talks to join the project as Rameses, the Egyptian pharaoh who kept the Jewish slaves in bondage.
Fassbender is a dirty, crooked lawyer who’s about to double cross some wicked players in the international drug trade. Pitt’s seasoned character tries to warn him off. His actions tick off a chilly Cameron Diaz, and endanger his fiancé (Cruz). And if the screws are turned properly, Scott could have his answer to Joel and Ethan Coen’s No Country.
These clips continue to sell the fact that Scott has an amazing cast at his disposal. Michael Fassbender, who worked with the legendary director on Prometheus, will play a Southwestern lawyer who gets in over his head with some shady characters when he dabbles in the drug-trafficking world.
It seems that Javier Bardem is at his very best when he is sporting a crazy hairstyle. In 2010 he won an Academy Award for his performance in the Coen brothers' No Country For Old Men, and just last year he got and endless stream of acclaim for his turn in Sam Mendes' Skyfall. If that trend holds true this year, then we should be in for a real treat with Ridley Scott's The Counselor.
Michael Fassbender fronts the film as the titular lawyer, who craves the kind of extravagant wealth that seems only accessible to drug cartels. All the Pretty Horses's Penelope Cruz plays his fiancée Laura, who he wishes to swaddle in wealth. So, he gets involved with Reiner, an enigmatic and dangerous dealer played by No Country For Old Men's Javier Bardem...
There are lot of movies with outrageously strong casts coming out in the next year-- August: Osage County being the runaway favorite-- but I challenge you to find a combination more fascinating than the one leading Ridley Scott's next film The Counselor. You start with a starring role for his Prometheus standout Michael Fassbender...
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.
