Microsoft and Xbox Entertainment have released a featurette that give us our first look at their upcoming Halo: Nightfall digital feature. Not only does it include a behind-the-scenes look at the film, but it also features some actual footage that looks really cool, as well as a brief look at the video game Halo 5: Guardians.

Halo: Nightfall stars Mike Colter as Jameson Locke, "a surgically-enhanced super soldier who is a rising star in a futuristic Spartan army and troubled by the military industrial complex he inhabits." The film is set between the events of Halo 4 and the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians, in which the character Locke will play an integral role.

Sergio Mimica-Gezzan is directing the project from a script written by Prison Break series creator Paul Scheuring. This is the Halo project that is being produced by Ridley Scott and David Zucker.

Sean Bean Joins Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian’

7 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ridley Scott has obviously figured out a way to kill Sean Bean off in his upcoming adaptation of The Martian as the legendary British actor, known for dying in most of his films, has joined the cast as a ‘Nasa flight director.’ The film, based on Andy Weir’s source novel of the same name, starts shooting soon for a 2015 release.

The story revolves around the first people to land, and potentially die, on Mars.

Here’s the official plot:

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, »

How Will Sean Bean Die In Ridley Scott’s Latest?

8 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sean Bean has just been cast in Ridley Scott’s latest film, The Martian. He joins an already awesome cast which includes Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, and Kristin Wiig. Based on an e-book by author Andy Weir, which was published in 2012 and then published in paperback this year, the film will follow the first man on Mars. Bean will play the Nasa flight director.

Of course, all us Bean fans are wondering how the man of many deaths will meet his maker. Research shows that Bean’s film’s box office correlates directly with whether or not he dies, and the more gruesome his death, the higher the box office (*statistics yet to be verified by anybody of any importance). So how will Bean die in this latest offering from the Prometheus and Blade Runner director?

Well, it sounds as though Bean will remain on Earth, »

Sean Bean joins Ridley Scott's The Martian

8 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Bean joins Matt Damon in the cast of Ridley Scott's film of The Martian...

The human movie spoiler returns. Sean Bean, next to be seen on the big screen in The Wachowskis' delayed Jupiter Ascending, has landed a role in Ridley Scott's upcoming adaptation of Andy Weir's book, The Martian.

Bean joins a cast that includes Matt Damon, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig and Jessica Chastain. And he'll be taking on the role of Nasa's flight director in the movie. Having read the book over the past week, unless there's a significant detour taking with the screenplay, this role is going to offer something radically different for Bean: survival chances.

The story of The Martian centres on astronaut Mark Watney, who finds himself stranded on Mars. He has finite resources. He's out of contact with Earth. And nobody is due to return to the planet for years. »

Exodus: Gods And Kings Has A Stupidly Long Runtime

11 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Not too long ago, we thought that Interstellar was going to be one of the longest movie released this year. Not that there's anything wrong with a long movie, but depending on what you're going to see, your interpretation of what constitutes as "long" will vary. That having been said, we've now got a new candidate for the longest film in 2014, as well as the film that will most likely divide the audience in two. That movie is Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods And Kings. The IMDb page for the upcoming Christian Bale/Joel Edgerton epic clocks the movie in at a balmy 3 hours and 20 minutes. The only movie that could seriously challenge Exodus: Gods And Kings for the longest movie you tried to fit into your holiday celebration schedule is The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies, and even that film probably won't come close to what Ridley Scott »

Noomi Rapace says God could be the baddie in Prometheus 2

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month Ridley Scott gave an update on the status of Prometheus 2, during which he stated that the iconic Xenomorph from his 1979 sci-fi classic Alien was “cooked” and would be absent from the next film as he continues to take the series in another direction. Now Prometheus star Noomi Rapace has shared her thoughts on who could be the antagonist of the follow-up, telling MTV News that:

“God, maybe? Or the devil? I don’t know where [Ridley's] gonna take us but I can’t wait to go there. I don’t know what we’re going to discover. Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. She can’t go to earth, there’s nothing left for her there really. She wants to go where [the Engineers] came from. She wants answers, she wants to know. I feel like I’m sharing her curiosity, but also her anger.”

Watch: Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' Gets Its Cult Film Due

22 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Courtesy of a script by Cormac McCarthy, Ridley Scott’s 2013 thriller veers wildly between over-the-top satire reminiscent of Terry Southern at his most indelicate and grimly ghoulish violence a la McCarthy’s own "No Country For Old Men." The stellar cast, who seem down for anything, includes Michael Fassbender as the slightly honorable lawyer to an extremely dishonorable drug runner played by Javier Bardem. Brad Pitt drops in for a charming cameo as a doomed business associate but the film will be best remembered for Cameron Diaz as the crime lord’s girlfriend who reminds us you can’t spell “carnal” without “car”. »

Ridley Scott To Tackle Ebola In New TV Limited Series

20 October 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the Ebola virus dominating news headlines worldwide, it was only a matter of time until Hollywood dug its heels in on turning the hot-button topic into a full-blown series. Recently, producer Lynda Obst (Interstellar) and director-producer Ridley Scott (Gladiator) announced that they’ll be creating a limited series for Fox TV Studios, adapted from Richard Preston’s 1994 nonfiction bestseller The Hot Zone.

Obst and Scott optioned Preston’s book two decades ago and never abandoned the project, tapping Jeff Vintar (I, Robot) to adapt The Hot Zone into what was originally envisioned as a film for Scott to direct. Now that the recent outbreak – the deadliest on record – has made the virus extremely timely, the pair feel that it’s high time to push ahead with the adaptation, though the project will now take the form of a TV miniseries. Obst said of the decision:

Bart & Fleming: WB’s Spandex Od; Ebola The Series; Neil Patrick Harris Near Egot

19 October 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes, mostly on the movie business.

Fleming: Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu told me he sees superhero movies as right-wing poison and cultural genocide for their simplistic values that stamp out human truths. Warner Bros’ Kevin Tsujihara told Wall Street his slumping film studio will turn around via a full program of 10 DC Comics tent poles to be released 2016-2020.

Will Smith and Tom Hardy are in talks to star in Fury director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, and 2016 also brings Batman V Superman; 2017 brings Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Justice League; 2018 brings Ezra Miller as The Flash and Jason Momoa as Aquaman; 2019 brings Shazam and Justice League 2; Ray Fisher stars in Cyborg and a Green Lantern reboot arrives for 2020.

Ridley Scott and Lynda Obst Developing Ebola TV Series at Fox

17 October 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As though Ebola isn’t in the headlines enough, now Ridley Scott and Lynda Obst are giving the disease its own TV show.  It’s being reported that the pair is developing a limited TV series for Fox TV Studios based on the 1994 Richard Preston book, The Hot Zone: The Terrifying True Story of the Origins of the Ebola Virus. Apparently the duo has had the rights to the book for two decades, but never let them lapse.  About a year ago, they quietly went to work on the project, hiring I, Robot scribe Jeff Vintar to pen the adaptation.  Hit the jump for more on Scott and Obst’s Ebola TV series. The current Ebola outbreak has claimed more than 4,500 lives, including the very first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States.  Two nurses who treated that patient also contracted the disease, which apparently has a 50% fatality rate.  Via THR, »

First Reaction To Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings

17 October 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I always find it a bit strange when studios pre-screen random clips from upcoming movies, but with the racially insensitive hubbub currently surrounding Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings, any talk about the actual movie could do absolutely no harm. There’s the age old saying that “there is no such thing as bad publicity,” and the worst case scenario after screening some clips only involves a few negative articles running on random entertainment sites – at least people might forget about the race card, right?

I attended the last New York City pre-screening of the Exodus: Gods And Kings footage preview, expecting nothing more than a slew of clips in the vein of Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Everyone knows the story of Moses, Rhamses, and the ten plagues, and everyone knows actors like Sigourney Weaver and Christian Bale, so what could go wrong when there’s a budget worth millions and millions of dollars? »
