New Images Released from “Alien: Covenant”

It looks like fans clamoring for a new trailer of Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant will have to quench their thirst with just a few still images released from the film’s Twitter account yesterday. One image shows Michael Fassbender, as one of his characters, dressed in all white sitting at a piano; another shows some of the blood that we’ve come to love from this series covering the inner walls of the ship.

The film’s plot synopsis reads:  “Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world – whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.” read more

Check Out the New Trailer for Blade Runner 2049

Warner Bros. Pictures have unveiled the first trailer for the hotly anticipated Blade Runner 2049. A direct sequel to the Ridley Scott masterpiece, Blade Runner, the film will star Ryan Gosling with Harrison Ford returning to the iconic role of Rick Deckard.

Based on the novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, by Philip K. Dick, Blade Runner is one of the most original and iconic R-rated films ever to explore the complexities of a not-so-distant dystopian future. Hauntingly beautiful, and sometimes utterly horrific, the film influenced many science fiction and horror stories that have come since. read more

New Movie Poster and Release Date Unveiled for Alien: Covenant

For fans of the Alien franchise eagerly anticipating another chapter in the futuristic saga, your wait time has just been reduced.  In addition to debuting a new movie poster featuring the iconic, shadowy image of a xenomorph, producers of Alien: Covenant announced on Wednesday that the film’s release date has been moved up three whole months.  The sequel to 2012’s Prometheus (and second prequel to the original lineage of films), Covenant is now set to hit theaters on May 19, 2017.

Moving the premiere up to that date will put Alien: Covenant in direct competition with the Warner Brothers’ horror film Annabelle 2, which is expected to draw large audiences to the theaters.  The newest Alien entry has several key factors in its favor, however.  The new poster, which was released for the first time in conjunction with the release date update, features the recognizable face of the alien creature itself amidst a dark and unsettling background.  Depicting the creature up front sets the upcoming film apart from its predecessor Prometheus, which took a more indirect approach in its link to the Alien franchise.  More importantly, legendary director Ridley Scott, who directed the original 1979 film as well as the 2012 prequel, returns to the big chair to helm Covenant. read more

‘Blade Runner’ Sequel Premiere Date Announced

The premiere for the sequel to ‘Blade Runner’ has been announced. It will hit theaters January 12, 2018.    It wsa previously announced that it will star Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, who is reprising his role.  Denis Villeneuve is direcing the Alcon Entertainment film.   Hampton Fancher, who co-wrote the original film, and Michael Green have written the screenplay.   The film picks up several decades after the conclusion of the original film from 1982.

Ridley Scott, who directed the first film, said, “Alcon bought the title, and asked if I had any ideas. I did. So fundamentally it’s my essay about what happens and what the film is about. I was going to get writers, but decided to call up my old buddy Hampton Fancher because he walks the walk and talks the talk, albeit in these awful sandals. We came up with a nice tight target. He said he wouldn’t write the screenplay, but wrote a short novel. This was one of the writers I had the best experience with, on the original Blade Runner, meeting him every day, polishing the script. We’d solve one problem and there would be another. It drove him crazy but what happened is that what started off as a small contained play inside an apartment, and into an epic. The new one, we’ve got a very good director in Denis Villenueve. He has taken my script, from Hampton and Michael Green, and that’s what he’ll make. I can’t direct them all, and I have to do Prometheus.” read more
