BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
This morning brought us a new look at what could wind up being one of the best movies of the fall. Ridley Scottís The Martian launched a brand new trailer in the early hours, and it makes the film look equal parts fun and thrilling. If the preview whet your appetite for the movie, youíre definitely going to want to read about the special footage screening and Q&A that I attended this week.
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.
The Martian is set to arrive in theaters this October, but you don't have to wait that long to get another glimpse of the ARES-3 crew.
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.
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.
Ridley Scott's upcoming sci-fi blockbuster The Martian has drawn a number of comparisons to Christopher Nolan's Interstellar... and with good reason. After all, both movies feature Jessica Chastain and Matt Damon, and are set around the idea of astronauts finding themselves trapped in space and hoping to find a way back.
20th Century Fox has assembled a rather superb creative team for their upcoming adaptation of The Murder On The Orient Express, bringing together a number of talented people to try and bring the classic story back to the big screen.
The Martian trailer layers a star-studded cast over its depressing centerpiece, including Damon's Interstellar buddy Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Donald Glover and Sebastian Stan. The story follows a group of astronauts investigating the Red Planet, but when a freak storm hits their encampment, the team is forced to evacuate, leaving Damon's Mark Watney behind.
It was a couple weeks ago that 20th Century Fox gave us our first look at Ridley Scott's The Martian in the form of some brand new stills... but this brand new viral video for the movie is infinitely cooler.
After playing an astronaut stranded on a frozen planet in Interstellar, Matt Damon is heading back into space with the starring role in The Martian. And, once again, he plays an astronaut left to fend for himself on another planet.
As many great films as Ridley Scott has made in a wide variety of genres, he will arguably be forever known for his contributions to science-fiction. Later this year, the filmmaker will once again try an leave an indelible mark on the genre with the release of The Martian - and earlier today we got a look at the movieís very first footage.
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 Scottís planning?
The irony of this situation has to be that Sir Ridley Scott rarely edits his films just once. This is a man who has at least five versions of his masterpiece, Blade Runner. And he has gone on record to say that his initial cut of Exodus ran four hours long.
While there hasnít been a ton of momentum quite yet on the Blade Runner sequel, you can now rest assured because Harrison Ford says itís the best thing heís ever read.
Sir Ridley Scott is one of the most influential filmmakers of all time. But what are his 10 greatest ever movies? Here's a list to provoke a furious debate on the topic.
The thing about the Red Sea sequence is that it competes with several eye-popping visual events in the rest of the movie. Sir Ridley Scott embraces his epic blockbuster side when bringing the size and scope of the story of Moses to the big screen.
Speaking with the men behind the massive spectacle, itís clear that they did what they could to keep things light on the set. In fact, while interviewing Edgerton about the scale of the picture, and Ridley Scottís use of multiple cameras to capture the vast action on screen, he talked to me about stopping in the moment and reminding yourself, ďItís just a movie.Ē
It looks like Star Trek 3 has lost another director. With Roberto Orci bowing out, here is a list of other names that could certainly handle the task of directing a Star Trek film.
