Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant may not come out in theaters until May 19th, but you can get to know the ship's crew (whose captain may come as a surprise) right now in the new short film Last Supper, the official prologue to Alien: Covenant that was directed by Luke Scott (Morgan).
"The official prologue to Alien: Covenant introduces the crew of the mission as they gather for a final meal before entering cryosleep.
Set aboard the Covenant, a colonization ship on its way to a remote planet to form a new human settlement, the main crew (all couples) and their android, Walter, enjoy their final meal together before cryosleep.

It has been nearly five years since we have seen a movie from the Alien franchise in theaters, and a whole lot longer since we have seen a truly great entry in the legendary sci-fi series. That looks like it all may change this summer when Alien: Covenant scares its way into theaters, a movie that has inspired a lot of confidence and hope in fans up to this point. Now we have some brand new footage from the movie, giving us a new look at the latest Alien entry.
Fox debuted this new footage during the latest episode of FX's Legion. It is a 4-minute prologue from the movie that features James Franco and Danny McBride. While it may not be a trailer, this may actually be better in some sense. It is actually the official prologue to Alien: Covenant, which introduces the crew of the mission as they »

As SXSW 2017 inches closer and closer, the marketing team behind Terrence Malick’s forthcoming romance/music drama, Song to Song, is beginning to drum up excitement ahead of the film’s theatrical bow late next month.
And so, on the heels of last week’s first-look trailer, a batch of all-new pics have surfaced online that highlight Malick’s enviable cast: Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman and The Discovery‘s Rooney Mara. Set in Austin’s thriving music scene, Song to Song divides that starry ensemble into two couples – Mara and Gosling; Fassbender and Portman – before unraveling their respective highs and lows as they reach for fame and fortune. Malick’s edgy new creative venture is said to be “very much ingrained in the zeitgeist,” so that all but rules out a La La Land-esque arc of love, dreams and the often gut-wrenching grey area in between. »

The film will world premiere as the fest’s closing night movie on March 18.
“Life,” directed by Daniel Espinosa, also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ariyon Bakare, and Olga Dihovichnaya. The film, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, centers on a team of scientists aboard the International Space Station whose mission of discovery turns to one of primal fear when they find a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth.
“We are thrilled to close out the 2017 SXSW Film Festival with such a special film as ‘Life,'” said Janet Pierson, SXSW’s director of film. “Our audiences will love this taut space thriller’s twists and turns »

It has been well over a year since Spectre hit theaters and in the time since, the James Bond franchise has been on relatively uncertain ground. The only real certainty being that the franchise is going to continue on one way or the other, be it with current 007 Daniel Craig or with a new actor in the iconic role. Despite the seeming uncertainty, James Bond 25 looks like it is on the right track as it has been revealed that the production is looking to film in Croatia, possibly before the end of the year.
The report comes courtesy of the fan site MI6 HQ who are reporting that Eon Productions, the company in charge of the James Bond franchise, is in negotiations to shoot the next installment in Croatia. The news came directly from the mayor of the city of Dubrovnik, who reported at a press conference that was »

Ahead of the SXSW premiere in just a few weeks, we’ve also confirmed the precise runtime and musical acts in the film.

Additionally, some of them are in the trailer, but it’s been confirmed that Iggy Pop, Johnny Rotten, Patti Smith, Lykke Li, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Big Freedia, Diplo, Alan Palomo of Neon Indian, Spank Rock, Dana Falconberry, Black Joe Lewis and the Honey Bears, and The Black Lips »

This morning, 20th Century Fox unveiled a photo of the crew of the Covenant, the ship that’s inevitably going to run into some trouble in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant. It seems these space travelers just had a nice dinner, complete with some whiskey, and we even detect some smiles that will soon be wiped off their faces.

The group is flanked by Katherine Waterston and Michael Fassbender, the latter of whom is back from Prometheus. Elsewhere, you can spot Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Jussie Smollett, Danny McBride and Demián Bichir. Notably, James Franco is prominently featured at the center of the image, draped in some sort of blanket, staring dead-eyed into the camera. That placement seems to indicate that ...

At this point, hardly anyone would mistake Steve McQueen — the British-born, Amsterdam-based African-American director of “12 Years a Slave” — with the late “Bullitt” star of the same name. The living McQueen started out as an acclaimed experimental shorts filmmaker before landing critical acclaim with his 2007 directorial debut “Hunger,” a spare, haunting portrait of an Ira fighter on a hunger strike during the late 1970’s; he followed that up with another unsettling treatment of male physicality in crisis, the sex addiction drama “Shame.” Both movies starred Michael Fassbender as deeply troubled souls, and “12 Years a Slave” is no exception, though it has much bigger aims than personal strife: The true story of Solomon Northup, a free African American in the 19th century kidnapped and sold into slavery, the movie features Chiwetel Ejiofor at the center of a remarkably poignant and tense story that many have deemed the most compelling treatment of the American slavery experience to date. »

Ahead of a new Alien: Covenant trailer sneaking in during the next episode of Legion on FX tomorrow evening, 20th Century Fox has released a new image of the full Alien: Covenant crew including a first look at James Franco as Captain Branson.
The crew picture which includes the movie’s stars, Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby, has a few too many smiles radiating out of the image. Where guessing they’ve all polished off that empty bottle of Jack Daniels on the table just a little too quickly.

A new photo for Alien: Covenant has emerged, showing the cast taking a crew photo, seemingly before all hell breaks loose. Check it out and learn information on when you can see more content from the upcoming movie.
Director Ridley Scott has assembled quite the crew to man the Covenant colony ship. To honor those crewmembers (victims), Scott decided to share a crew photo with the world. In the photo, you'll see the likes of Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby innocently standing around a table.
As you can see, it's a pretty standard cast photo. It doesn't spoil anything and you can't really see a whole lot in terms of Easter Eggs (Thankfully no Alien eggs).
If that doesn't quench your Alien: Covenant thirst, it's understandable. Tomorrow, during FX's new show Legion, »

The X-Men franchise has certainly become a unique beast in the world of cinematic universes. Not only do they tend to plan their films in smaller batches — with actors generally signing up for three or so at a time, as opposed to Marvel’s “sell your soul for eternity” deal that’s become the standard — but they also have the added layer of difficulty in their multiple timelines and their willingness to hop from one time period to another.
All of a sudden, it’s no longer as clear cut as, “oh, we need this actor for the next one,” because the next one may not even be a true sequel — and to top it all off, it may not even be set in the same actual universe. As such, we never truly know what actors’ roles could be in upcoming films. However, a couple week’s back, it was »

Ridley Scott’s latest addition to the franchise he created more than forty years ago, “Alien: Covenant” doesn’t hit theaters until May 18th, but 20th Century Fox has released a new photo of the star-studded crew in the meantime. The studio will also air a sneak peek of the sci-fi thriller during FX’s broadcast of Noah Hawley’s critically acclaimed “Legion.”
The original “Alien” has a long list of sequels and prequels, most recently 2012’s “Prometheus,” which drew mixed reactions from fans and critics alike. “Covenant” picks up where “Prometheus” left off, with Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce returning to their roles. Rounding out the cast of “Covenant” are James Franco, Amy Seimetz, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, and, Jussie Smollett.

If you didn't believe that James Franco was going to be part of the Alien: Covenant cast before, here's your definitive proof. 20th Century Fox has released the official Covenant Crew photo, and we see Franco standing front and center looking Jesus like in his white robes, and he's seen standing next to his frequent on-screen collaborator and sometimes comedy partner Danny McBride. Fox had this to say about the photo.
So far, 20th Century Fox has released only one teaser trailer for Alien: Covenant. And this latest sneak peek doesn't sound like it will be the full-trailer either. Which makes us think that director Ridley Scott is being sneaky on his build-up to the May 19, 2017 release date. Perhaps much of the thrills, »
Alien: Covenant continues to potentially be one of Ridley Scott’s most interesting movies. It isn’t just interesting because of the mythology that it hitches itself to, but rather how it ended up being an Alien film in the first place. First coined as a Prometheus sequel, it wasn’t long before Scott settled on an Alien name, the first being Alien: Paradise Lost. That one didn’t last too long, for a few weeks later, it was confirmed that the title change was Alien: Covenant. Why Covenant? Well, that’s the name of the ship that we’ll be riding with for the duration of the journey, and when all said and done, it certainly makes for a less pretentious title.
But what would the film be about? That was the $10,000 question, wasn’t it? Well, this one looks to be both a sequel to the divisive Prometheus, »

"Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition."
