Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander's Red-Hot Romance Heats Up New York

23 July 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

New York City is currently experiencing a heat wave - and super-hot couple Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender aren't helping! The sexy pair were spotted out at TriBeCa hotspot Nobu on Friday night, leaving the chic Japanese-Peruvian restaurant in style. Vikander wore a long, black, button-down velvet dress with a low-cut neckline and pleated skirt. The 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress accessorized the look with black heels and a long-strapped black purse. Fassbender, a two-time Oscar nominee for his roles in 12 Years of Slave and Steve Jobs, kept things classic in navy slacks, a button-down shirt and a blue blazer. The German-Irish »

Danny McBride shows off the cockpit in Alien: Covenant behind-the-scenes photo

22 July 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the end of production on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant, star Danny McBride took to Instagram to share a photo of himself on set. In the film, McBride portrays a pilot, so it’s only fitting that the posted picture features the actor in his ship’s cockpit, sporting a space cowboy look. The snapshot was accompanied by a caption that read, “That’s a wrap on #aliencovenant. Ridley is going to scare the shit out of you.” See it here…

Of course, the actor is best known for his comedic work in such films and TV shows as Pineapple Express, This is the End, Eastbound and Down and Vice Principals (which premiered on HBO last week), so Covenant will certainly be new territory for McBride, as it brings him into a darker and more horror-infused environment. 

Lastly, the first behind-the-scenes photo from Alien: Covenant showing »

Danny McBride Takes You Behind The Scenes Of Alien: Covenant In New Pic

22 July 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production has officially wrapped on the set of Alien: Covenant – but not before Danny McBride can share another behind-the-scenes snap.

Set to take the helm of Ridley Scott’s titular space vessel, McBride took to Instagram to post one final look into what we assume to be the cockpit of the Covenant, promising that, “Ridley is going to scare the shit out of you.” Given the awe-inspiring set photos coupled with the promise of a Xenomorph slithering onto the scene, we’re inclined to believe him.

Hoping to correct course after the largely underwhelming Prometheus – it was by no means Alien: Resurrection, but Scott’s prequel spinoff paled in comparison to the director’s original classic – Alien Covenant is the second chapter in the filmmaker’s planned prequel trilogy, one that has subsequently ordered Neill Blomkamp’s proposed Alien sequel to the shelf, for now. Should that plan take shape, »

As you can see its an intriguing image of lead actress Katherine Waterston (playing a character named Daniels) who is kitted out in very familiar garb. Is anyone else thinking Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley?

Here’s how the new ‘Tomb Raider’ will be ‘new and fresh,’ according to Alicia Vikander

19 July 2016 3:14 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Following in the footsteps of Angelina Jolie is a daunting task, especially when the task in question is taking on the role that launched Jolie into a Hollywood stardom — Lara Croft — and in turn further established the character as an icon. But Alicia Vikander appears confident she’s got this covered. The Ex Machina actress was cast as the lead in the newest film adaptation of the Tomb Raider games back in April. Talking with Vikander today about Jason Bourne, I checked in on the plans for Lara Croft. The new movie had been reported to “tell the story of a young and untested Croft fighting to survive her first adventure.” Looks like we will indeed get to see more of the archaeologist-adventurer actually becoming the Tomb Raider, much like in the more recent games. “They told me they were doing the film based on the reboot of the game »

19 July 2016 2:52 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ridley Scott's sequel to the divisive Prometheus, Alien: Covenant, has wrapped, and the Alien Anthology Twitter account has shared a stylish new behind-the-scenes pic of the director alongside a grinning Katherine Waterson (Inherent Vice). There seems to be little doubt that her character's look pays homage to Sigourney Weaver's Ripley, and rumor has it that Daniels may actually be the iconic officer's mother. You can check out some more Bts images Here and Here. “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.” Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demien Bichir and Danny McBride, and is set to hit theaters on August 4, 2017. »

Such is the gravity of post-production and CGI work on Hollywood’s marquee releases, that some of 2017’s biggest releases are already beginning to wrap filming. Just yesterday, we brought you the news that The Mummy, Universal’s modern redo of the cult supernatural thriller, had completed principal photography in London and now, Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant will join it in post.

That’s according to the ever-active Alien Anthology Twitter feed (thanks, Collider), which has also unearthed what is surely the final set photo of Covenant, spotlighting Ridley Scott opposite Inherent Vice breakout Katherine Waterston.

Alien: Covenant Wraps; Ridley Scott Shares New Set Photo

19 July 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, production began on 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated Alien: Covenant, which not only serves as a sequel to 2012's Prometheus, but starts a new trilogy that will help bridge the gap to the original 1979 classic Alien. Today we have word that production has officially wrapped, along with a final photo from the set with director Ridley Scott and star Katherine Waterston.

The set photo debuted through the Alien franchise's official Twitter, which teased that "the next phase begins" after filming has wrapped. Unfortunately, the photo doesn't reveal too much, although we haven't seen or heard too much from the set since filming began. We did see a set video earlier this month that revealed a Xenomorph, along with previous glimpses of Michael Fassbender and Danny McBride on the set. Unfortunately, we won't be getting a glimpse of this movie at Comic-Con, since 20th Century Fox is skipping the convention entirely. »

Sigourney Weaver: 'Alien 5' would have happened already if not for 'Alien: Covenant'

13 July 2016 11:07 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I’ve already logged my complaints with Neill Blomkamp’s revisionist Alien 5, and truth be told, I wouldn’t mind a bit if the project ultimately fell by the wayside. Needless to say, that viewpoint puts me at odds with series star Sigourney Weaver, who is eager to see Blomkamp's vision realized -- though it sounds like it may be awhile before that happens. "[20th Century] Fox asked us to delay so Ridley Scott could shoot his [second] Prometheus movie [Alien: Covenant]," Weaver told EW in a recent interview. "That was too bad because we would have already done it by now." Indeed, as previously reported, Alien 5 was backburnered to make room for Alien: Covenant, the Prometheus sequel/Alien prequel that’s currently shooting in Australia with stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, and Danny McBride, among others (you can watch Drew’s recent interview with McBride and his Vice Principals co-creator Jody Hill below, during »
