Ridley Scott is busier than ever, and there has been some speculation as to whether or not he would revisit the world of Blade Runner or Alien first. As suspected, the prolific filmmaker has confirmed that Prometheus 2, a sequel to his 2012 Alien prequel Prometheus, will be his next movie as a director. He has The Martian coming out this October, but as soon as it was wrapped, he didn't hesitate to jump into preproduction on this upcoming sci-fi thriller.
Prometheus originated as a prologue to the action seen in Ridley Scott's 1979 horror classic Alien. But the movie morphed into something much greater than a mere prequel, becoming its own thing and igniting a new franchise for 20th Century Fox. It took some pretty complicated ideas head-on and in turn tore audiences in two. Some longtime fans loved it, others hated it, but there is no denying it is interesting. »
Pierce Brosnan has given his support to a gay James Bond, but has his doubts about it actually happening.
The Irish actor was talking about the legalisation of same-sex marriage in his homeland when the subject of a gay 007 came up.
Speaking to Details, his initial reply was: "Sure. Why not?"
However, he then added: "Actually, I don't know how it would work. I don't think Barbara [Broccoli, the James Bond producer] would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime. But it would certainly make for interesting viewing."
When Silva unbuttoned his shirt and made a sexually-charged remark, Bond responded: "What makes you think this is my first time?"
At the time, Craig said that Bond is definitely not gay, and that Bardem's villain would "f**k anything".
Meanwhile, Brosnan also »
'The Sea Inside': Javier Bardem and director Alejandro Amenábar. 'The Sea Inside': Outstanding supporting cast help to lift flawed Right to Die drama Alejandro Amenábar's The Sea Inside often verges on melodrama, featuring as its centerpiece a showy performance by Javier Bardem as a tetraplegic man eager to end his life “with dignity.” Its not inconsiderable flaws notwithstanding – including a simplistic “right to die” debate – this real-life-inspired drama is in and of itself both compelling and touching enough to merit a look; but what makes The Sea Inside a must-see are the superb performances of those in Bardem's periphery. The story revolves around Ramón Sampedro (Javier Bardem), a middle-aged man who has been bed-ridden and dependent on the care of others since a diving accident in his early 20s. (Hence the original Spanish title “Into the Sea.”) Yearning for freedom from his mostly immobile body, »

It is almost 22 years since Pablo Escobar, the Colombian drugs kingpin, was shot dead on a barrio rooftop in Medellín, but his story has never been more popular. At the end of this month the eagerly awaited Narcos, a new 10-part TV series following Escobar’s rise and fall, will arrive on Netflix.
Paradise Lost, a film starring Benicio del Toro as the paunchy drugs baron, recently opened in the UK and two biopics are in the works, one tentatively entitled El Patrón and slated for release in 2017, starring John Leguizamo; the other from Spanish director Fernando León de Aranoa and starring Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz.

Johnny Depp crashed D23 in full Jack Sparrow mode to share a few new announcements along with Sean Bailey, President of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production, about Pirates of the Caribbean 5, or the more official longer name of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Depp also threw grapes into the audience and mingled with Harrison Ford backstage in full Sparrow regalia as only he could.
The big news delivered is that Orlando Bloom is returning to the franchise as Will Turner after taking the fourth film off. Bloom wasn't on hand for the announcement but he's definitely a go to return to fight alongside Captain Jack Sparrow once more.

Towards the end of last year, Orlando Bloom let slip that he might be returning for the fifth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales. While not many people would call themselves Will Turner fans (I will admit the character was quite flat), he did help ground the first three movies as a nice counter point to Johnny Deep’s manic Captain Jack Sparrow. You only have to look at On Stranger Tides to see that this is true. While it was uber successful, it was weakened by the focus being solely on Jack. So, Orlando Bloom announcing at D23 that he’s onboard for the latest instalment of the highly successful franchise, yeah, I’m okay with that. The last time we saw Will, he was made the immortal captain of the Flying Dutchman and cursed with only stepping foot on dry land »

With Disney returning to its billion-dollar franchise for another dip into the Pirates Of The Caribbean, rumours – spurred by the actor himself – surfaced last year that Orlando Bloom would return as Will Turner in Dead Men Tell No Tales. Now, as confirmed by Disney boss Alan Horn at D23 on Saturday, he will indeed be back. Quite what he’ll be up to (or down to, given that he replaced Davy Jones as Captain of the Flying Dutchman in At World’s End) has yet to be revealed, but it points to the Pirates crew looking to stoke a little nostalgia for Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth outing for the franchise.Filming recently wrapped in Australia with Espen Sandberg & Joachim Rønning directing and Johnny Depp back once again as Captain Jack Sparrow.
