‘Alien: Covenant’ Releases Cast Photo

For some reason, the first thought of the morning was “What if Gilligan found a crashed alien spaceship on the island and got face-hugged?” Who wouldn’t watch the heck out of that episode? The good money is on Mary Ann to be the sole survivor. In other Alien news, director Ridley Scott‘s Alien Covenant production has released a cast photo which you can check out below. (more…)

Expectations are high for Wonder Woman, and not just because Warner Bros. is hoping that she might right the ship in terms of the studios’ efforts to correct widespread critical disinterest and mixed fan reaction to the DC Expanded Universe. Of course, people are just generally looking forward to seeing the first superhero movie led a solo superheroine, which is maybe why we’ve gotten this new cover art for the subscribers of Empire magazine. It’s a very flattering picture of Gal Gadot, and it seems to portend that sunny days are on the horizon, and maybe not just for the Amazonian warrior princess. (more…)

Ever since the first time we got to see Hugh Jackman (The Prestige, Prisoners, and Chappie) pop his claws in X-Men, fans have been asking the obvious question: where’s his iconic yellow costume? It has been referred to and even shown in a short scene at one point over Jackman’s career as the Weapon X, but he has never worn it. With Logans release just around the corner, we may have finally learned why the original costume for Wolverine just doesn’t work thanks to comments by the film’s director.

In 2014, Keanu Reeves’ career got a much-needed adrenaline boost with the premiere of John Wick. The tale of a secret underworld of assassins, and one in particular, who unleashes hell on everyone after the death of his dog (and the theft of his car). Given the surprise success of the first John Wick film, it’s a no-brainer that they greenlit a sequel. This past weekend, John Wick: Chapter 2 hit theaters and once again, Director Chad Stahelski and Reeves caught lightning in a bottle again. The sequel gave us a perfection of well-choreographed mayhem. We here at Nerdbastards loved the sequel. It’s no surprise that there will be another John Wick movie in the pipeline.

On February 13th, writer and director Jonah Feingold launched a Kickstarter to fund a prequel movie to the Robin Williams classic Hook. It planned to tell the story of Rufio, who had become the leader of the Lost Boys by the time the adult Peter Pan returned to Neverland. It would shed light on a part of his story that was a mystery in the original movie – how he came to Neverland, what qualified him to be in charge, what life might have held for him if he hadn’t become the Pan. The Kickstarter was endorsed by Dante Basco, the actor who played Rufio twenty-five years ago. (more…)

Somewhere, a new chapter of a beloved franchise is now taking its first steps into being revitalized. After years of talk, The Predator has begun production under the direction of Shane Black, a man who knows Predator because he was killed by one in 1987. Black’s Predator has been a topic of much conversation, and much rumour mongering, but we still don’t know much about it, but the first day of production has yielded the revelation that the cast that Black has brought together is 100 per cent certifiably bad ass. Revealed via Twitter, Black’s crew is ready to fight a powerful alien, but which ones will live to tell about it? (more…)

No one does cryptic and mysterious better than J. J. Abrams, and his most recent project has proved no exception. It’s been only a few days since the trailer dropped for Castle Rock, a new project marking a second collaboration between J. J. Abrams and Stephen King. Their first collaboration was as producers for the miniseries 11.22.63 based on one of King’s novels which debuted on Hulu last year, to mixed reviews. It seems they’ve moved past that and decided to continue their partnership with Hulu, as Castle Rock will air on the same streaming site.

Kevin Smith‘s been a busy guy lately. He started working on a Mallrats sequel, and then he turned it into a Mallrats TV show. And then after that he decided to put proverbial pen to paper for Clerks 3, and develop that project as his next film, but soon all that was abandoned for the prospect of a new Jay and Silent Bob project, because it you’re just going through sequelizing the whole View Askewniverse, you might as well get to the point. But what about all that material for Mallrats and Clerks? Well Smith has a plan for that if he gets around to it. Maybe. (more…)
