Japanese anime Ghost In The Shell is an Empire-acclaimed world cinema great, with the manga on which it's based celebrating its 25th anniversary. To mark the occasion, the film has an upcoming re-release. It has a new poster to mark the occasion. Click below for a closer look. What’s so good about this film? Easy. It’s a feast of blistering visuals that wears its cyberpunk spirit on its sleeve and helped set up big Hollywood sci-fis ahead. Filmmakers from James Cameron to Steven Spielberg have acknowledged the influence of Mamoru Oshii’s animation, while Lana and Andrew Wachowski have pointed to it as a key Matrix touchstone.With shades of Philip K. Dick, the story sets a cyborg gumshoe on the trail of shadowy hacker The Puppet Master. But is she human or is she dancer just a machine? Those philosophical questions will obviously be familiar to Blade Runner »
You never know who will change the world, it might be someone we can't imagine. There's nothing like that feeling of euphoria after sitting through an outstanding film, one that surpasses expectations and provides so much more on top of any/everything one could imagine. That's how I felt at the end of The Imitation Game, a film by Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) about British mathematician Alan Turing, who helped crack the uncrackable Engima code during World War II. The film tells his life story jumping between his youth, his work during WWII, and time after when he was prosecuted for "indecency" because he was "a homosexual". It's an exceptionally compelling film lead by remarkable performances. The title The Imitation Game refers to a paper that Turing wrote which, as far as I could tell, was a direct inspiration for the Voight-Kampff machine from Blade Runner (questions are asked »

Todd Farmer has definitely made a name for himself in genre films. Having written the “Jason Voorhees in space” Friday The 13th sequel, Jason X, as well as co-writing films like My Bloody Valentine 3D, Drive Angry and the now lost Halloween 3D with frequent collaborator Patrick Lussier, Farmer is a staple in the horror community, an all around nice guy (I witnessed Icons’ Aaron Pruner once tossing a pencil at Farmer at a convention and surprisingly Aaron didn’t get the knuckle sandwich that Pat Healy’s character was given by Farmer in Cheap Thrills), and from the sound of it, a pretty avid gamer. Given that knowledge, it would come to no surprise that Farmer’s recent endeavor is the full length computer animated film adaption of the popular video game, Heavenly Sword. Ambitious and full of memorable characters, the Heavenly Sword film is one hell of a time, »

We can debate all day which comic book hero is cooler: DC or Marvel? Superman or Spiderman? Justice League or The Avengers? Batman or anyone who isn’t cool enough to be Batman? But it’s no question that Marvel has a serious leg-up on DC in the movie business.
Outside of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, DC has had a harder time making their characters stick and is even behind the ball in planning their lineup of films. Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel was one of the highest grossing films of last year, but it was forgotten as a dour, colorless, over-important mess as soon as it arrived. And yet this model may be the template DC is pursuing with all their future projects.

Each week I find myself writing about how much I hate performance-driven music videos but present you with an exception. I think it’s time to admit defeat and realise that there is actually a large population of artists and music video directors who can get creative and pull them off. Although I feel a little foolish for having this initial hatred for them I am also thrilled to see a number of videos surprising me each week as well as what feels like a sudden influx of them. It’s great to see that all hope hasn’t been lost just yet. I can’t believe I even included a video which features both Jessie J and Nicki Minaj (I have nothing against Ariana Grande, yet). There’s just something really empowering about watching an all female ensemble come together and celebrate different kinds of femininity and female sexuality simultaneously. »

Scott confirmed that he’s looking for Harrison Ford to return as Rick Deckard, the world weary bounty hunter who ends up forming a connection with the replicants he’s hired to retire in the 1982 dystopian neo-noir. Speaking about Blade Runner 2, Scott said:
“It’s written and it’s damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years.”
The Prometheus sequel is also ready for filming, although quite when this will happen is still unclear. Scott is currently busy with The Martian, starring Matt Damon, which is due for release in November 2015. It looks like he may start working on the Blade Runner sequel after The Martian, but then where does that leave Prometheus 2? He’d better get a move on. »

(Cbr) Ridley Scott has a lot on his plate — too much, one could argue, especially if you’re one of the fans eagerly awaiting sequels to two of his films: "Blade Runner" and "Prometheus." The director confirms to Entertainment Weekly that scripts and plans exist for both the announced "Blade Runner" and "Prometheus" sequels, with the former film in particularly good shape. “It’s written and it’s damn good,” he said of the "Blade Runner 2" script. “Of course it involves Harrison [Ford], who is a survivor after all these years — despite the accident.” But Ford’s "Star Wars" set injury isn’t what’s getting between Scott and the next "Blade Runner." Instead, it’s the Oscar-winning filmmaker’s increasingly busy schedule. His next film is called "The Martian," a Matt Damon-starring adaptation of Andy Weir’s novel about an astronaut stranded and left for dead on Mars. “It’s like 'Robinson Crusoe, »

Four interesting tidbits coming atcha that we neglected to discuss for multiple reasons. If you hadn't yet heard them, they'll feel like brand new news to you.
In what is clearly understood to be an awards-traction move, Jon Favreau's sleeper hit Chef will be coming back to theaters this Friday in wide release. I'm not sure it has the critical oomph to win any nominations and it didn't have the box office size to make that a non-issue (a la gargantuan hits like My Big Fat Greek Wedding) but could it sleeper hit its way into, say, The Screenplay race? I'm realizing I neglected to consider it at all there which is an obvious mistake. I had a really good time watching it with friends though; it's an easy sit and safe for diverse groups of viewers. My favorite visual was ScarJo eating a bowl of pasta but my »

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, filmmaker Ridley Scott has spoken briefly about the proposed sequels to his sci-fi offerings Blade Runner and Prometheus, stating that Blade Runner 2 looks set to move forward, while Prometheus 2 seems to be suffering from scheduling issues.
With regards to Blade Runner 2, Scott stated that: “Blade Runner 2 is written and is damn good,” says Scott. “Of course it involves Harrison [Ford], who is a survivor after all these years – despite the accident [on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII]. So yes, that will happen.”
Scott is currently putting the finishing touches to Exodus: Gods and Kings and is gearing up to shoot The Martian with Matt Damon, which means he’s struggling to find time to fit Prometheus 2 into his schedule: “That’s the problem. I’ve got a lot of ducks in a row. But they’re all written.”

Per Entertainment Weekly, Scott revealed that the scripts for both sequels have been written, and it's essentially now just a matter of time before he can get around to bringing them to life.
"It’s written and it’s damn good,” Scott said of the Blade Runner sequel. “Of course it involves Harrison [Ford], who is a survivor after all these years. So yes, that will happen.”
As far as a sequel to Prometheus is concerned, »

We hope you love sequels, because we’ve got all kinds of news about the next installments in franchises you already love in today’s roundup. Director Ridley Scott is 76 years old, an age where many of his compatriots are well into retirement and spending their time in a tropical locale. However, the Alien director isn’t ready to hang up his camera just yet – and to prove he's still got it, he has multiple projects in various stages of development. Of all those films on his docket, people are most interested in his long-awaited sequel to Blade Runner and the follow-up to his quasi-Alien prequel Prometheus. EW recently caught up with Scott, who offered up a status report on both features. The current state of Blade Runner should leave fans pleased...

As usual, Ridley Scott is juggling five thousand projects at once. He's currently wrapping up "Exodus: Gods And Kings" for release later this year, and this fall he'll begin rolling on the sci-fi film "The Martian" starring Matt Damon. But what about the long developing sequels to "Blade Runner" and "Prometheus"? Well, Scott promises both are coming, and he says that at least from a writing standpoint, they are ready to go. “It’s written and it’s damn good,” Scott told EW about "Blade Runner: Title To Be Determined." “Of course it involves Harrison [Ford], who is a survivor after all these years, despite the accident. So yes, that will happen.” That being said, Ford's involvement isn't confirmed by, at least not officially, but we suppose if the actor is willing to come back for "Star Wars," he will do anything. He's been rumored to participate in the movie for »

This December, we'll see if Ridley Scott can finally deliver another great film by returning to the sword and sandal tale of Exodus: Gods and Kings (the trailer had impressive visuals, but felt a bit artificial otherwise). But he's got plenty of other projects on his future slate to keep him busy. The director's next film has been confirmed to be the sci-fi drama The Martian starring Matt Damon, but many are wondering when he'll get around to directing the developing sequels to his classic Blade Runner and the Alien prequel Prometheus. Well, Scott gave a brief update on the status of both sequels, giving us a vague timetable. When it comes to Blade Runner, Scott confirmed to EW that the script written by Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original film) and Michael Green (of Green Lantern) is completed and just waiting for him to shoot it, "It’s written and it’s damn good. »

Ridley Scott is keeping quite active for a man in his 70s. He’s currently gearing up to release his Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, and is also starting to get ready for production on The Martian (which begins shooting in November), his sci-fi film with Matt Damon. The prolific filmmaker doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon, either, as he recently told Entertainment Weekly that after The Martian, he’ll move on to Blade Runner 2.
According to Scott, the film has a completed script and it’s “damn good” :
“[Blade Runner 2] is written and it’s damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years—despite the accident. So yes, that will happen.”
Now, Ford hasn’t confirmed his involvement in the sequel just yet, and hasn’t seemed to eager to do it, so whether he’ll actually climb on »

Sir Ridley Scott likes to keep a number of irons in the fire. At one point, the legendary filmmaker.s IMDb had nearly as many "announced" projects as it did completed features. The Englishman likes to work, even at the older age of 76, and he has several sandboxes in which he.s able to play. Two of his most popular worlds might get extensions, in fact, as Ridley Scott says screenplays are reaching positions of completion. So what.s on the horizon, and when might we see these films? Ridley Scott opened up to EW about three of his most-discussed projects: his Blade Runner sequel; his Prometheus sequel; and The Martian, which he wants to make with Matt Damon. Of the three, he suggests that The Martian will be next, adapted from Andy Weir.s novel about an astronaut stranded on Mars following a solar storm. Scott says he has »
Ridley Scott is a busy man. With Exodus: Gods and Kings set to release later this year, and his next project already pick (The Martian with Matt Damon in the lead), many fans have been wondering what's going on with his other science fiction sequels that have been in the works for a little while now. Ridley Scott finally opened up about the upcoming sequels to both Blade Runner and Prometheus, even stating which one he expects to shoot first. Come inside to check it out!
Prometheus had it's share of problems, to be honest, but regardless of that, I still felt it was an interesting movie with some nifty concepts. I feel that a sequel to that film could expound those ideas and be something specila (if handled correctly). So despite being somewhat "meh" about Prometheus, I have been eager for a second one. If you feel the same, »

Ridley Scott is busy. He’s got his Moses tale Exodus: Gods and Monsters opening in December and then will shoot The Martian with Matt Damon, with a November 2015 release already set for that novel adaptation. But Scott also has been announced to direct sequels to two of his sci-fi series: Blade Runner and Prometheus. […]

A few months back, we found out that Ridley Scott had no intention of slowing down. Even at 76, he's been adding a steady stream of high profile projects to his schedule lately. But with the kinds of projects he's been talking about, it's been important to note that some of them were just concepts or ideas- like the long-rumored Blade Runner sequel. But it looks like his slate is prepared to become official, as all three of his next films now have scripts. Yes, including that Blade Runner sequel.
