The Blob, 1972) that Mr. Harris co-wrote and produced and he also produced the 1988 remake that starred Shawnee Smith (Saw, The Stand) and Kevin Dillon (Platoon, The Doors). read more

New Trailer Drops for “Alien: Covenant”

One of the most eagerly anticipated films of 2017 gets a full trailer release and said trailer is two minutes and thirty-six seconds of face-hugging/Xenomorph glory. Starring Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, James Franco, Danny McBride and a slew of other recognizable names, Alien: Covenant is directed by Ridley Scott (his third of the series) and is a sequel to 2012’s Prometheus which is in turn a prequel to the original Alien series.

Ridley, who directed the original 1979 Alien told Flickering Myth back in January that he “wanted to go back and really explore the origins of the xenomorphs”, adding that, “We did Prometheus – that heaved it off the ground, and Covenant is a follow-through to Prometheus. We now know who created this, and why, and the next one’s a joining up of the storyline.” read more
