Prometheus 2 is happening and shooting will start in January 2016

3 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

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.

However, the film has now confirmed a shoot date of January 2016, according to Total Film.

"I've got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it," director Ridley Scott told the magazine in a new interview.

Prometheus 2 will be written by Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green. However, the sequel will not have the fan favourite Xenomorphs.

Scott also gave his view on upcoming sci-fi epic Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens.

"Star Wars is a juggernaut," he says. "Good, bad or indifferent. And with that director [Jj Abrams], it ain't gonna be indifferent, it's gonna be really interesting."

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

“Fight in epic Star Wars battles on iconic planets and rise through the ranks playing as the heroic Rebellion or the evil galactic Empire.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens IMAX update

7 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

More details on that IMAX scene for Jj Abrams' Star Wars scene - and how to see it in full 70mm.

It's been known for a while that director Jj Abrams has shot one sequence - and apparently only one sequence - for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens using IMAX cameras. And now we know what that scene is. So we figured you might want to know too.

According to Making Star Wars, "the scene is most likely the escape from Jakku". This scene has popped up in the trailers, as it's apparently the one where the Millennium Falcon flees Tie Fighters.

That said, whether you get the full feeling of the IMAX effect may depend on where you see the film. According to the Making Star Wars site, it's the cinemas that have "a 'true' eight story tall IMAX screen" that will present the film using a 70mm film reel, »

Casting – Force Awakens to Game of Thrones for Max von Sydow, Supergirl Jenna Dewan-Tatum Knows her Lane

10 hours ago | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Jenna Dewan-Tatum adds her good looks to CBS’ Supergirl, joining the Lane family as Lucy, the sister of Lois Lane, in a recurring roll.

THR reports that Lucy has similar qualities to her big sis, being both brash, beautiful, and  armed with a sense of humor. She also has a connection with Jimmy Olsen. Look out for Jenna to debut in the third episode of the first season, which kicks off on CBS on October 26th with the enviable lead-in from the mega-popular (and perhaps audience sharing) Big Bang Theory.

Lucy Lane has roots from the ’50s, debuting in Jimmy Olsen’s comic and having some super adventures of her own.

Jimmy, forget Supergirl, Lucy Lane is what it’s about.

Is This How the 'Star Wars' Movies Will Include Characters from 'Star Wars Rebels'?

13 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

This December marks the return of Star Wars to the big screen with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It is Disney's intention to then start releasing one live-action Star Wars movie per year, with standalone Anthology films arriving in the years between chapters in a new trilogy that picks up 30 years after Return of the Jedi. But with one successful Star Wars TV show (Star Wars Rebels) already up and running, what are the chances characters from that show will eventually show up in one of these movies? Well, we may have our answer. The first standalone movie is Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, and what we know so far is that it will take place right before the first Star Wars, telling the story of how the rebels got their hands on the Death Star plans. Those plans, of course...

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Gets Max Von Sydow as Three-Eyed Raven

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after veteran actor Ian McShane joined the cast of Game of Thrones for Season 6, the hit HBO series has added another highly-respected veteran actor. Entertainment Weekly reports that Max von Sydow has signed on to play the Three-Eyed Raven in Game of Thrones this season. Both Ian McShane and Max von Sydow are not expected to have major roles, but each character is described as "crucial." No details were given for Ian McShane's character.

At the end of Season 4, the Three-Eyed Raven finally appeared before Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), after he reached the Weirwood Tree. The Raven was played by a different actor in the Season 4 finale, but now we'll see Max von Sydow as this mystical tutor to Bran. Last season, Bran and his travelling companion Hodor (Kristian Nairn) did not appear at all, since their story was already caught up to the George R.R. Martin books. »

‘Game of Thrones’ Casts Max von Sydow as Three-Eyed Raven for Season 6

14 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Three-Eyed Raven is getting a makeover in season six of “Game of Thrones” — Variety has confirmed that Max von Sydow will take over the role, which was originated by Struan Rodger in the season four finale of the HBO drama.

The enigmatic character is responsible for teaching Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) about his supernatural gifts, including his ability to transfer himself into the body of other creatures through the process of “warging.” Although Bran and his allies were absent throughout season five, they are confirmed to be making a return in the new season, which has commenced filming in Europe.

While von Sydow is not expected to have much screen time in season six, he will reportedly play a major role in the events of the new season. The same has been said of fellow new cast member Ian McShane, who is playing an undisclosed role.

'Twin Peaks' Giant Carel Struycken wants in on the Showtime revival: 'I think I belong there'

15 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Netherlands-born actor Carel (pronounced "Carl") Struycken is known for his roles in a number of different franchises, from Lurch in the "Addams Family" movies to the nearly-mute "Mr. Homm" in "Star Trek: The Next Generation." But to "Twin Peaks" fans he will always be "the Giant," an enigmatic Black Lodge denizen who serves up cryptic, coded messages to Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) during his investigation of Laura Palmer's murder. Though the character appeared only briefly during the run of the show's second season, his presence and influence loomed large (literally and figuratively), and for fans he continues to represent a fascinating piece of David Lynch and Mark Frost's mysterious, offbeat puzzle. With the much-ballyhooed "Twin Peaks" revival series set to premiere on Showtime sometime in 2016 (2017?), we hopped on the phone with Struycken to talk about working on the original series ("It felt very much like a dream"), his working relationship with David Lynch, »

Oscar Isaac Takes A Stand In Stylish Trailer For HBO Miniseries Show Me A Hero

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After turning heads with his eye-catching performance in J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Oscar Isaac is returning to the genre of period dramas for David Simon’s anticipated six-part miniseries, Show Me a Hero.

Lifted from the pages of Lisa Belkin’s acclaimed 1999 novel of the same name, Isaac assumes the role of real-life mayor Nick Wasicsko, who has to shoulder the burden of implementing legally mandated low income housing against a fierce backlash from the more affluent members of society. Offering up a rich tapestry of characters, the miniseries will showcase the city’s palpable class disparity from both sides of the equation, giving Isaac ample room to flex his acting muscles as he continues to establish a reputation as one of the industry’s bankable character actors.

With Crash director Paul Haggis behind the lens and The Wire‘s David Simon overseeing the adaptation, »

Extra Details About 'The Force Awakens' 70mm IMAX 3D Release

17 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

A few new details have surfaced regarding the plans for the upcoming IMAX release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens coming up this December. By now, it's been pretty much confirmed that there is one main sequence shot with IMAX cameras in The Force Awakens. The movie will be getting a 70mm IMAX 3D release, and film blog Making Star Wars has posted some info on the initial plans for the IMAX 3D version. As one would hope, there will definitely be special IMAX 70mm film showings at the few remaining "real" IMAX theaters, but they will be in 3D with dual projectors, so this will still be pushed as 3D. Rest assured, "it's what IMAX was founded on, showcasing the best and most immersive 3D ever." Let's hope for the best.

Get Ready For The Pez Movie

18 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Lego Movie really does have a lot to answer for. Hot on the heels of news of an Emoji movie, Deadline are reporting that Pez is the latest thing you’d think would never get a movie to get a movie, with the world famous candy dispensers becoming the focus of an animated feature. The Three Stooges and Brother in Law’s Cameron Fay will be penning the script, so it does have the potential to be a comedy, possibly of the 21 Jump Street meta variety, but really only time will tell. The sheer number of licenses, from Disney (with Marvel and Star wars being put underneath that umbrella) to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to The Simpsons, does suggest it could go down The Lego Movie route, but that is ignoring the main question here: why is it happening in the first place? Lego at least had a solid fanbase, »
