23 February 2017 8:12 AM, PST

Earlier this week we got the above image from Alien: Covenant that offered our most complete look at the surely doomed spaceship crew. But that was just a still image. Now you can see it in motion thanks to Fox releasing what the studio is calling a prologue. It's not a trailer, but rather an extended look at the scene from the pic. In it we get to know the lay of the Covenant land a bit. It appears that everyone on board, save for Michael Fassbender's droid character, is part of a...

Indie Movie Guide: The All-Female Directed 'Xx'

22 February 2017 10:34 AM, PST

It's a fact that mainstream Hollywood has a serious lack of female directors making movies today, and one genre in particular that rarely sees a woman at the helm is horror. This changes with the horror anthology Xx, which has four short films by four different female directors including Karyn Kusama (Aeon Flux, Jennifer's Body), all with female leads. One of those leads may look familiar: Melanie Lynskey, whom you may recognize from TV shows like Two and a Half Men and movies like...
