30th Anniversary of Aliens – This Weekend Midnights at The Tivoli

25 September 2016 6:10 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“We’d better get back, ’cause it’ll be dark soon, and they mostly come at night… mostly.”

Aliens plays this weekend (September 30rd and October 1st) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series. 

Aliens is a great sequel though James Cameron chucked the creepy Ridley Scott atmosphere for a more action-oriented format. Set 57 years after the original, Ripley’s escape pod has been found, and she is returned to earth. Once she gets there, however, her story is discounted and The Company fire her for detonating her old ship. A few weeks later Burke, an employee of The Company, asks her to go with a group of marines to Lv-426 (the planet where she found the first alien), where contact has been lost with a colony of terraformers…

Aliens is a fantastic movie. It is quite different from 1 & 3 in the series, in »

Sigourney Weaver On Alien 5: “I Hope We Get To Do It”

24 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since their collaboration on the really rather disappointing Chappie last year, Sigourney Weaver and director Neill Blomkamp have become attached to a new entry in the Alien canon that’s currently going by the unofficial name of Alien 5. Picking up the story strands from James Cameron’s 1986 sci-fi masterclass, and promising a fitting conclusion to the arc of one Ellen Ripley, 20th Century Fox has quietly placed Blomkamp’s embryonic sequel on the back-burner to double down on the release of Alien: Covenant, the next entry in the franchise that will continue to flesh out Ridley Scott’s prequel trilogy off the back of Prometheus.

Now that Scott’s vision has took precedence, questions marks have been raised as to whether Weaver and Blomkamp will ever reconvene to fire up production on Alien 5 – or, more accurately, if they will ever find space on Fox’s stacked slate. In short, production »

Popcorn Politics: Terminator 2 took aim at the ethics of artificial intelligence

23 September 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

James Cameron’s seminal summer blockbuster Terminator 2: Judgment Day turned 25 earlier this year. But in the big technological questions it raises, the film remains almost frighteningly relevant. This episode of Popcorn Politics, The A.V. Club’s collaboration with Scrappers Film Group, explores what T2 had to say about the ethics, dangers, and possible future of artificial intelligence—and how those issues continue to inspire debate in the scientific community. »

Newswire: Deadpool’s Ed Skrein joins Alita: Battle Angel

22 September 2016 12:39 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

After enduring Ryan Reynolds’ goofy insults as the villainous Ajax/Francis in Deadpool, Ed Skrein is moving on to another bad guy role in a comic book adaptation—well, technically it’s a manga adaptation, but it’s the same sort of thing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Skrein has signed on to play the evil cyborg Zapan in Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel, which is based on the Battle Angel Alita manga series. He’ll be appearing alongside Jackie Earle Haley and Christoph Waltz, with Maze Runner’s Rose Salazar playing Alita, a female cyborg with no memory of her past who becomes a bounty hunter.

For years, James Cameron tried to get a Battle Angel Alita movie off the ground, but since he’s busy with all of those Avatar sequels these days, he’s been relegated to a lowly producer position. Rodriguez’s Alita movie ...

Alita: Battle Angel Ropes In Deadpool Villain Ed Skrein

21 September 2016 12:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

He’s dabbled in the realm of superhuman mercenaries with middling reboot The Transporter Refueled, not to mention going toe-to-toe with the Merc With a Mouth himself in Deadpool; now, Ed Skrein is bound for the dystopian future initially dreamed up by manga artist Yukito Kishiro for Alita: Battle Angel.

News hails from The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Skrein has closed a deal to join the long-gestating adaptation as, you guessed it, a villain – specifically Zapan, a nefarious cyborg who holds control of a powerful weapon called the Damascus blade. Details are thin beyond that; all we know for sure is that he’ll be rubbing shoulders with Maze Runner actress Rosa Salazar, who is attached to the title role of a female cyborg, Christoph Waltz and Preacher star Jackie Earl Haley.

Disney CEO: Rogue One Isn’t Expected To Hit Box Office Heights Of The Force Awakens

$2.06 billion – that’s the total box office haul brought in by Star Wars: The Force Awakens during its stellar run. Though it failed to top James Cameron’s Avatar to become the highest-grossing picture in cinematic history, it was a barnstorming, record-breaking start for Disney and Lucasfilm’s rejuvenated tentpole.

However that may be, when quizzed about Gareth Edwards’ upcoming Anthology film, Bob Iger – CEO at the House of Mouse – emphasized that in no way does the company expect Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to hit the box office heights of The Force Awakens come December.

Word comes by way of Iger’s interview with Variety, where the Disney chief stressed that Rogue One represents an entirely different beast, one that isn’t necessarily a four-quadrant slam dunk in the vein of J.J. Abrams’ crowd-pleaser – in fact, »

Sigourney Weaver Talks Hillary Clinton, ‘Alien,’ David Fincher, J.A. Bayona

21 September 2016 3:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian — Actress Sigourney Weaver looked poised, gracious and sharp as she talked about Hillary Clinton, “Alien” and “A Monster Calls” in the build-up to her acceptance Wednesday night of a career-achievement Donostia Award at Spain’s San Sebastian Festival.

“It’s exciting in the U.S. now that it looks like we are finally going to have a woman president,” Weaver said at a brief news conference Wednesday morning, although polls show Donald Trump closing in on Clinton. “It’s overdue. I think a lot of the progress we made is now coming to fruition. We have women in all walks of life, armed services and other jobs.”

That, she argued, was increasingly reflected on the big screen. “I don’t think I’ve ever had more work,” she said, calling out a journalist who asserted a lack of great women’s roles in Hollywood.

Could Passengers be the next Avatar, or will it disappear into a black hole?

21 September 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt as star-crossed lovers in space, there’s a lot riding on Passengers. Will it ascend to the box-office heavens?

Some might say that the era of the big budget romance died when Pearl Harbor took a critical drubbing in 2001. And yet James Cameron’s Avatar proved beyond doubt seven years ago that audiences will still sign up for a good old-fashioned love story, provided there’s plenty of spectacle among the lingering glances. By somehow managing to bring together the kind of filmgoer who will pay to see an alien movie with those who would rather spend their last dollar on a late-night screening of The Notebook (as well as looping in some brilliantly synapse-boggling 3D), Cameron briefly appeared to have single-handedly rescued Hollywood from certain doom.

But while Pearl Harbor would never have existed without the success of Cameron’s Titanic four years previously, »
