It’s time to read between the lines again. Ridley Scott made some recent comments about Prometheus 2 that have many Alien franchise fans scratching their heads and shaking their fists in the air. You’ll notice I didn’t say Prometheus fans, because 99% of them would rather be known as Aliens fans first. While talking with Yahoo! about his current schedule, which might just be the most hectic in Hollywood, well second most hectic, Samuel L. Jackson is in everything and must be number one when it comes to a hectic Hollywood shooting schedule. What did Ridley say that has such a large portion of Aliens franchise fans in an uproar?

The busy first day of San Diego Comic Con is coming to a close, and if you’re at all interested in Xbox and Microsoft’s latest experiment in home entertainment, than this one’s for you. After years of attempting a Halo movie for the big screen, the fine people at Microsoft said screw it, let’s make it a series and put it on our own Xbox network. And voila! Halo: Nightfall is coming this fall, and the first look is here after being first looked at earlier today in San Diego. So what’s it about, and what does it look like? Let’s see some images and watch a teaser trailer. (more…)

Michael Fassbender Is Unsure As to When ‘Prometheus’ is Happening (But Assures Us it Definitely Still Is!)

- 05-12-14Film Posted by Jacob Knight

There are a few simple rules regarding conversation in my house:

1. No politics

2. No religion

3. No insulting the films of Brian De Palma or David Cronenberg

4. Those who mention Prometheus will be shot

It’s not that I despise Prometheus (the first half is actually quite good), it’s just that the very thought of the movie’s squandered potential irks me to no end. So count me as someone who is actually looking forward to the sequel, as I hope (maybe against hope) that Ridley Scott & Co. can actually stick the landing this time, instead of dropping a giant, somewhat phallic-looking spaceship on my dome. Unfortunately, one of its busiest stars cast a shadow of doubt upon when we’re actually going to see the continued adventures of Elizabeth Shaw and the severed head of David the Robot today, thus meaning I can’t set a defined date upon which I can revisit and possibly revise my “house rules”.

‘Prometheus 2’ Picks Up a New Writer and a Release Date

- 03-24-14Film Posted by Jason McAnelly

Ridley Scott’s 2012 Alien-sort-of-prequel, Prometheus, was met with mixed feelings by both long-time fans and new initiates of Scott’s sci-fi world. Personally, I loved it. Others were less forgiving with their judgment. But the fact still remains that it made enough people in Hollywood happy (to the tune of $400 million) that they decided another installment in the franchise was necessary. Now, the sequel to the prequel is making some headway, by both picking up a writer and setting a (probably) solid release date. (more…)

Microsoft Denies Ridley Scott/’Halo’ Rumors

- 01-15-14Film, Videogames Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Another one bites the dust. A Halo movie has been talked about since the first video game was released on the inaugural Xbox system becoming an instantaneous best-seller. A lot of big name people have been stapled to this proposed movie, Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro for example, and yet it still hasn’t been able to reach theaters everywhere. Maybe what this thing needs is a legendary filmmaker, a man with a proven track record of creating quality sci-fi projects. Can someone like Ridley Scott be the solution? It’s possible, but has Microsoft approached the filmmaker? No. No, they haven’t. (more…)
