Wenders Retrospective: Until the End of the World | Review

30 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Pray for the Wounded Planet: Wenders’ Belabored Road Trip to the Apocalypse

The troubled production and following critical ambivalence towards Wim Wenders’ 1991 film Until the End of the World launched it into a sort of oblivion. Nearly twenty five years after its ill-fated reception, initially released as a three hour film which the director bitterly deigned the Reader’s Digest version of his epic, the near four hour and forty minute director’s cut premiered at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival to coincide with the premiere of his first narrative feature in seven years, Every Thing Will Be Fine. Now, this complete version is finally seeing a Us theatrical release courtesy of a fifteen city national touring retrospective of Wenders’ films kicking off in New York at the IFC Center. In retrospect, time has been much kinder to the mishandled title than anticipated. Restored as Wenders’ complete vision, it’s »

Ridley Scott confirms that Prometheus 2 is his next film

28 August 2015 4:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This won’t come as a surprise at all considering we heard earlier this month that it will start shooting in January, but Ridley Scott has confirmed that Prometheus 2 will be his next film.

“I was already on to my next movie,” Scott told Empire Magazine when talking about the decision to shift the release of The Martian from November to October. “I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is Prometheus 2.”

Ridley Scott Confirms 'Prometheus 2' Is His Next Movie

27 August 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

Content boards John Hawkes noir 'Too Late'

26 August 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Content Media has acquired international sales to Dennis Hauck’s neo-noir detective thriller and will host a private buyers screening in Toronto.

John Hawkes stars alongside Crystal Reed, Dichen Lachman, Natalie Zea, Jeff Fahey and Robert Forster in the non-linear story in the vein of Pulp Fiction, Short Cuts and Memento about a private eye on a perilous missing persons case.

Too Late premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival earlier in the summer.

Too Late is a cinephile gold dream, with stunning 35mm cinematography, white hot dialogue and a masterful performance from Academy Award nominee John Hawkes,” said Content’s president of film Jamie Carmichael.

“Add to that the smoky clubs, glamorous mansions, scenic vistas and retro-cool drive-in theatres that make Los Angeles iconic and you have a unique, ultra-hip noir thriller to die for.”

Feature debutant Dennis Hauck directed from his screenplay and produced with Alexandra Barreto and John Taylor Feltner.

Prometheus 2: 8 Fan Theories For What To Expect

23 August 2015 5:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox/Warner Bros.

There were a lot of people who thought that it would never happen; that Ridley Scott’s follow-up to his sort-of Alien prequel, Prometheus, was doomed to linger in development hell forever – a project that would never quite find a way to find itself properly green-lit.

But then came the news: Scott was still interested in making the follow-up, despite the fact that he opted to direct three unrelated movies in the aftermath of the film’s release, and 20th Century Fox even plan to unveil the picture ahead of Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5.

Prometheus 2 is set to start filming in January, then, with both Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender reprising their roles from the first film – as a result, interest in the somewhat belated sequel has started to explode to life all over again. The original picture was something of a divisive film, of course »

Sherlock Holmes 3 Coming?

7 August 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Despite a strong performance from both Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes films (they each crossed $500 million worldwide) development on a third feature has been, for lack of a better word, stagnant. With stars Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law working hard on other projects (completing a combined and thoroughly impressive 13 films in the interim 3 and half years), perhaps time has been a factor?

Well, producer Lionel Wigram says the game remains afoot, even if it’s in tentative stages.

Talking to IGN, Wigram confirmed he and director Guy Ritchie were on it:

“We’re working on a script. “I think we would all love to do one if we could come up with something that really was really going to knock it out of the park and was going to be the best of the three. So we’re working on that – it’s quite hard to do.”

First off, I want to apologize for this column's absence this past couple of weeks. When It Follows and Ex Machina arrived on Blu-ray back on July 14 I honestly completely spaced and forgot all about this column, which is a shame considering those are two of my top three movies of 2015 so far. That said, if you weren't aware they were released you can click on either title and purchase them now. Otherwise, here are this week's new DVD and Blu-ray releases along with a boatload of new release dates including Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Duke of Burgundy (another one of this year's best films), Mad Max: Fury Road (probably my favorite film of 2015 so far) and Furious 7.

Prometheus 2 Production Begins in January 2016

4 August 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

It's been 3 years since Prometheus came out in theaters and despite a luke-warm reception, production for the sequel has a date.  

Ridley Scott is a busy busy man, nowadays.  This fall he has The Martian coming out, a crime drama with Leonardo DiCaprio, and Blade Runner 2.  With all these big time movies in the works, somehow Scott has found a way to do a sequel to the Alien prequel, Prometheus.

Prometheus 2 will be in production starting in January of 2016. This news comes via Total Film.

While many of us would surmise that Prometheus 2 would follow the events from the first one, Scott isn't looking to immediately follow up with the Aliens theme. In fact, he has said that he wants to introduce new aliens and move away from Xenomorphs.  

There is no word yet if Michael Fassbender or Noomi Rapace will be returning. However, one would think in »

Prometheus 2 will reportedly start production in January next year.

The sequel to Prometheus, the Alien prequel released in 2012, was announced as in development early last year.

Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will reprise their roles as David the android and Elizabeth Shaw in Prometheus 2.

Prometheus 2 will start shooting in January

4 August 2015 12:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I can’t think of a movie that has divided critics, and my mates, more than Prometheus. The ultimate Marmite movie that you either loved or loathed in equal measure. The film did pretty well at the box-office (it is the most successful film in the Alien franchise with worldwide takings sat at over $400 million), and a sequel has been in the works for a little while, but we’re hearing via Total Film that Ridley Scott is planning to shoot the movie in January of next year, supposedly for a 2017 release.

We’re also hearing that both Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are set to return, though we can’t say the same of the famous Xenomorph.

“The beast is done,” Scott said in a recent interview. “Cooked. I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be »

But now comes word that "Prometheus 2" is officially moving forward. The plan was to release the movie on March 4th, 2016, which would be impossible now. The new plan has become to begin shooting in January and push the release date, likely to 2017. Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will reprise their roles. The story will have the two characters travel to the Engineers' planet and meet god, who is not a kind being. »

Ridley Scott Will Reportedly Direct 'Prometheus 2' in Early 2016

3 August 2015 4:11 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Ridley Scott delivered Prometheus back in 2012. The film landed to a mixture of emotions, but no matter what you say it certainly sparked conversation and a modest showing at the box office, though far from blockbuster numbers. Since then we've wondered when the sequel might arrive as Scott seemed interested to return to that world and never shied from answering questions and neither did the cast. Now a new piece from Total Film (via Scified), discussing Scott's upcoming sci-fi feature The Martian (10/2) suggests Prometheus 2 will be his next feature, with production expected to begin in January 2016. "I've got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it," Scott told the magazine and while it may seem unlikely Fox would move forward with both Scott's Prometheus 2 and the anticipated Alien feature from Neill Blomkamp, which reportedly had to be changed a bit as Scott felt it "was bumping Prometheus 2 a little bit, »
