‘Minority Report’ TV Series in Development

4 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Science fiction classics are making a comeback. A sequel to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner is currently in the works at Alcon Entertainment, and cult favorites Battlestar Galactica and Babylon 5 are both being adapted for the big screen.

Now a more recent science fiction property is making a comeback – as a TV show.

According to The Wrap, Steven Spielberg is developing a TV series based on his 2002 sci-fi hit Minority Report, which will be penned by Godzilla writer Max Borenstein.

Now, the deal hasn’t closed quite yet, but should the series go forward at Amblin Television, Spielberg is expected to choose an actor as the lead, just as he did with Halle Berry on CBS’ newest sci-fi drama Extant.

For those who may have missed it, Minority Report starred Tom Cruise as PreCrime Captain John ...

"Prometheus" Gets A Sequel In Comic Form

20 August 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Dark Horse Comics is attempting to unite the rather jumbled yet interconnected universe of "Alien," "Predator," "Aliens vs. Predator" and "Prometheus" in an ambitious crossover comic series event.

Things kick off next month with "Prometheus: Fire and Stone," which is set after the events of Ridley Scott's 2013 sci-fi film. In the comic, a new team heads to Lv-223 to learn the fate of the Prometheus, and there they uncover a dark mystery. Check out the freshly released trailer for it below.

This will be followed by "Aliens: Fire and Stone," "Avp: Fire and Stone" and "Predator: Fire and Stone". New books will be published on an eight-week cycle, meaning a new issue in one of the four books will be released every two weeks.

All four series will share some concepts, characters and situations. When each of the four books are concluded, one special issue will be published »

'Prometheus: Fire and Stone' Trailer Teases Comic Crossover With 'Aliens,' 'Predator'

20 August 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

That the fictional universes of 20th Century Fox's Aliens, Predator and Prometheus can cross over shouldn't come as a surprise — in addition to the two Avp: Aliens vs. Predator movies, Ridley Scott's Prometheus was explicitly created as a prequel to the original Alien. Next month, the three different franchises will become more closely linked than ever before thanks to a new comic book storyline titled Fire and Stone. Spanning three franchises, four different comic book series and five creative teams, Fire and Stone begins with Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra's Prometheus: Fire and Stone.

Venice Film Fest Chef Would Rather Discover Gems Than Spin Premiere Roulette

20 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Venice Film Festival artistic director Alberto Barbera is steering clear of tensions festering on the fall fest circuit.

Namely, the cinematic cold war between the Toronto and Telluride festivals, which escalated after Toronto organizers announced they will screen only world or North American premieres during its first four days.

“If there has to be this frenzy to have a world premiere at all costs, meaning that you’ll take a film just so that you can have the world premiere, that’s a game I’m not playing,” Barbera says.

If he can have certain studio titles, fine. But if he can’t, “That’s Ok too,” he says. “There are plenty of great movies out there around the world,” the Venice topper philosophically points out.

Despite his indifference, 54 of the 55 films in the lineup are world preems. And of course Barbera is delighted that the Lido opener is Alejandro Gonzalez »

Christian Bale And Sigourney Weaver Sport Some Serious Headgear In New Exodus: Gods And Kings Images

19 August 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This December, Ridley Scott will make a bid for Oscar with his Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, which stars Christian Bale as Moses, who rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton) in order to lead Israelite slaves out of bondage. Now, thanks to Entertainment Weekly’s fall preview issue, we’ve got two new images from the film, which highlight Bale (above) and Sigourney Weaver (below) in full Egyptian garb.

Weaver plays Tuya, the mother of Edgerton’s Ramses, whom costume designer Janty Yates told EW she wanted to have a certain “va-va voom” quality, almost like Jessica Rabbit. A little strange, perhaps, for a Biblical epic, but maybe the stylized nature of the costuming will wind up enhancing the film. As the guyliner-heavy posters showed us, Scott isn’t exactly gunning for gritty realism with this movie.

Bale spoke with EW about portraying Moses:

Sigourney Weaver Brings “Va-Va-Voom” to Ancient Egypt in New Exodus: Gods And Kings Images

19 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released a couple of new Exodus: Gods and Kings images from director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic.  One of these new images gives us a closer look at Sigourney Weaver, who plays Tuya, the mother of Joel Edgerton’s Ramses.  Costume designer Janty Yates tells EW that Scott wanted the character to be “va-va-voom,” likening her to Jessica Rabbit—a woman on the prowl.  It’s a curious choice for the Biblical epic, though the rest of the cast is a bit stylized as well, with Edgerton and Christian Bale’s Moses both wearing their fair share of eyeliner. Hit the jump to check out the Exodus: Gods and Kings images and to see what Bale had to say about taking on what he describes as one of the most fascinating characters he’s ever studied.  Exodus: Gods and Kings opens in theaters on December 5th. »

Fox’s Jim Gianopulos Leads Studio Through Uncertain Times

19 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos doesn’t have an easy job.

It’s hard enough to pick movies that connect with audiences. Today, studio chiefs like Gianopulos must navigate a rapidly shifting landscape where consumer demands, piracy and the collapse of the DVD market, as well as increasing competition from online diversions and quality cable TV shows, are wreaking havoc on the financial underpinnings of the film business. Media companies like Fox’s parent 21st Century Fox are on a quest to grow bigger in order to compete with digital superpowers like Google and pending mergers between cable and telco giants like Comcast and Time Warner Cable, and At&T and DirecTV. Gianopulos’ uberboss, 21st Century Fox chief Rupert Murdoch, made a surprise $80 billion bid to buy Time Warner that was rejected and he subsequently withdrew. But consolidation, it seems, is coming.

Joel Edgerton Says He Understands 'Exodus’ Whitewashing Criticism, But It’s Out of His Hands...

19 August 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Oooh boy, do I love to stir up a hornet’s nest!  As you will recall, last month I published an item on an announced boycott against Ridley Scott's upcoming mega epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings," and the lack of people of color in the film's cast (read it Here). I don’t want to say that I was the cause of it all (though I like to think so), but after my piece was published and circulated online, several similar articles appeared all over the internet, and elsewhere, all addressing the casting controversy, which was the cause of many much-heated discussions. You only have take a look at the comments in that my piece to see for yourselves. So, of course, it was »

See Sigourney Weaver's 'va-va-voom' costume in Ridley Scott's 'Exodus'

19 August 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

“He’s one of the most fascinating characters I’ve ever studied,” says Christian Bale of Moses, the Old Testament prophet he plays in Exodus: Gods and Kings. “All of his trials, his troubled life and his doubts, his rages and his extremes.” The actor laughs at how Moses—who spoke to God, fought violent battles, parted seas, and struggled to free the enslaved Israelites no matter the cost might fare in the modern era. “Can you imagine if he was alive today? He’d probably be on trial in the Hague.”

Joel Edgerton Addresses "Whitewash" Criticism of 'Exodus'

19 August 2014 1:46 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Australian actor Joel Edgerton has said he “empathizes” with critics of his new film, Exodus: Gods and Kings, who accuse director Ridley Scott of “whitewashing” African history in the casting of the biblical epic. Edgerton stars in Exodus as the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses the Great. The film also stars light-skinned actors Christian Bale as Moses, Aaron Paul as Joshua and Sigourney Weaver as Ramses' mother, Tuya. That has outraged many online, with critics accusing director Scott and the film's producers of “cinematic colonialism” by casting white actors to play African figures. A Twitter campaign, #boycottexodusmovie, is calling on fans

Joaquin Phoenix Sports Some Amazing Facial Hair In The First Look At Inherent Vice

Now that the summer season is coming to a close, we can start turning our attention towards the fall and, specifically, awards season. And there's some amazing stuff coming down the pike. The next few months will be delivering new titles from filmmakers like David Fincher, Christopher Nolan, Bennett Miller, and Ridley Scott - but right now we're going to focus on the latest feature from Paul Thomas Anderson.
