Simon Kinberg on possibly directing X-Men: Supernova, Nicholas Hoult thinks he’ll return as Beast

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago it was reported that Simon Kinberg is being lined up to make his directorial debut on the next instalment in the main franchise, X-Men: Supernova. Coming Soon caught up with Kinberg this week and asked him about the report, but the writer and producer was keeping his cards very close to his chest and giving very little away.

“They didn’t announce it, somebody broke a story about it that’s premature, but we have been talking about what the next X-Men movie would be since post-production on the last X-Men movie. We are prepping the film, can’t say much more than that, but we’re excited to get back into telling the story of the mainland X-Men.”

Asked hypothetically what he feels his directing style would be, Kinberg responded: “I’ve had the good fortune of working with a lot of good directors, from »

First Look at Crew of Alien:covenant in Short Film Prologue: Last Supper

24 February 2017 12:25 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

I realize this has been floating around the web for a few days but as you may have noticed from the lack of posting this last week, it's been a busy couple of days in the Qe virtual office. Were this any other project, I'd likely let it slide but we're talking about a new Alien movie so... we'll make an exception.

Conceived by Ridley Scott and directed by Luke Scott (of Morgan fame (review)), this bit of marketing for Alien: Covenant is a short film titled "Prologue: Last Supper" which features the cast of the upcoming film celebrating their last dinner before going into cryosleep.

As the prologue moniker suggests, this is a pre-cursor to the movie which focuses on the [Continued ...] »

Meet the Alien: Covenant Crew in The Last Supper Short Film

23 February 2017 12:14 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While a sequel to Prometheus, Alien: Covenant is bringing an all new crew together and Ridley Scott has released a new short film to act as a Prologue to the upcoming science fiction film.  Come inside to check out the four minute video!

'Alien: Covenant' Teaser — The Callbacks You May Have Missed

23 February 2017 12:06 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In space, no one can fail to hear you make thinly veiled allusions to oncoming extraterrestrial disaster. Or, at least, that seems to be the impression left by "Prologue: Last Supper," the new four-minute sneak peek of Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant.

Released months ahead of Covenant, "Last Supper" takes full advantage of audiences' familiarity with the larger Alien franchise to repeatedly tease potential trouble ahead in the most obvious of places. In the end, nothing goes wrong — the bad stuff is presumably being left for the full movie to deliver — but there's no way to get around the »

Every Chilling Detail We Know About Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, So Far

23 February 2017 8:21 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

A post shared by Alien: Covenant (@alienanthology) on Feb 21, 2017 at 5:59am Pst Are you ready to have your face hugged by a few aliens? Because Ridley Scott certainly is. The director has returned to the Alien franchise with Alien: Covenant, a sequel to 2012's Prometheus but still a prequel to the first Alien film. From the looks of things, the new installment is going to be just as much of a bloody, terrifying thrill ride as its predecessors. With more and more details coming out about it by the day, we've gone ahead and rounded them up in one convenient place for you to obsess over. The Cast Michael Fassbender makes his return to the Alien franchise by playing two characters: unfeeling android David (who survived the failed Prometheus mission) and an identical robot named Walter.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Prologue: Watch the Five-Minute Short Film Starring James Franco and the Full Cast

23 February 2017 7:23 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alien: Covenant,” one of the summer’s most anticipated blockbusters, has revealed a tantalizing sneak peek of the cast via a five-minute prologue, which shows a jovial spaceship crew shooting the shit before the inevitable mayhem we all know and love from the “Alien” franchise.

Titled “Prologue: Last Supper,” the crew is all coupled up and enjoying some last-minute debauchery before they head off to parts unknown. Even though the scene is loose enough to justify leaving it out of the theatrical cut, it’s a great showcase for the easygoing energy between cast members, including charming performances from a sleepy James Franco, a drunken Danny McBride, android bro Michael Fassbender, and Ripley archetype Katherine Waterston.

The Alien: Covenant Crew Answers A Distress Call In Beautiful New Pic

23 February 2017 7:13 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following up on the last supper promo, in which the crew of Ridley Scott’s colony ship raised a glass (or three!) before entering cryosleep, Empire has rolled out a new and really rather beautiful image for Alien: Covenant, which finds Michael Fassbender and Co. taking one small step for man and, well, you already know the rest.

Turns out this lush alien world isn’t actually the end destination for the Covenant, either, which has taken a detour in order to answer a “distress” signal – such is the Alien way. And though Ridley Scott’s hotly-anticipated horror flick will incorporate many of the franchise’s nightmarish tropes – the Facehuggers, the Xenomorphs, you name it – Fassbender believes it is the core characters of Alien: Covenant that separates Scott’s Prometheus follow-up from the pack.

On board to portray not one, but two synthetics (Walter, and the returning David), here’s »

Watch The Prologue To Alien: Covenant, The Last Supper

23 February 2017 6:21 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Ridley Scott returns to the world of Alien with prequel Alien: Covenant this Summer, and to get us hyped for more Xenomorph tinged action a prologue short movie, The Last Supper, has come our way. Directed by his offspring Luke Scott (Morgan), it introduces us to the future alien fodder crew of the colony ship Covenant as they enjoy one last meal together before entering cryosleep, suggesting that Covenant follows suit with the majority of the movies in this franchise and kicks off with the crew coming out of stasis. On top of introducing the cast, which includes Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, and James Franco, it also drops some neat hints about what the story holds for us. One cool thing revealed is that all the characters are couples, adding a nice dynamic to the story when it comes time for some alien implantation. On top of that, »

Watch the Alien Covenant prologue: Last Supper & new images

23 February 2017 2:12 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

A few months before Prometheus Ridely Scott paved the way for our return to the world of Alien with a future set Ted talk starring Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland. Directed by Luke Scott, it was an intriguing introduction to elements and themes which would become important in the subsequent film. The Scotts have repeated their pre-Alien film tradition with a prologue to Alien Covenant called Last Supper, which you can see below.

Late last year we broke the news that James Franco would be joining the cast of Ridley Scott’s new Alien film, and he makes an appearance early on in this new piece of the puzzle. He is in poor health however, and speculation abounds that his character won’t make it too far into the film. There’s nothing to say that he won’t take a pulse rifle to the new Alien »
