'Alien: Covenant' Gets 'Eastbound and Down' Star Danny McBride

10 February 2016 5:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a casting move no one expected, comedic actor Danny McBride is set to go deep into outer space as part of the Alien: Covenant exploration team. The Eastbound & Down star is in early talks with 20th Century Fox to join the Prometheus follow-up, which will be directed by Ridley Scott. The only other two actors thus far confirmed for the Alien franchise sequel are Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston.

Noomi Rapace, who was the main star of Prometheus, was expected to return for a cameo, but she will not participate in the production at all. Scott Free is producing this 20th Century Fox tentpole. And while Danny McBride's participation in the film certainly sounds unusual, his representatives are refusing to comment on the casting at this time.

Alien: Covenant follows a colony ship bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. The crew discovers »

Why The 33 soundtrack is a testament to James Horner’s memory

5 February 2016 6:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson remembers one of film music’s great dramatists James Horner with his instrumentally varied and beautiful disaster movie score…

Chilean mining drama The 33 may have generated mixed reviews, not least for its oddly international cast including Spain’s Antonio Banderas, France’s Juliette Binoche and Ireland’s Gabriel Byrne. However, it’s notable for being one of the final films scored by late, great composer James Horner. Here are five tracks reinforcing the loss a singularly brilliant musical talent.

1) The Atacama Desert

Horner’s flair with ethnic and regionally specific textures becomes immediately apparent in this exotic opening track, one that establishes the movie’s physical landscape with his customary finesse. Subdued strings, woodwinds and electronics anticipate the disaster to come whilst striking pan flutes possess a suitably earthy and authentic air. It’s a reminder not only of his acclaimed works like Legends of the Fall »

'Titanic' Shocker! Jack Could Have Lived, Admits Kate Winslet

3 February 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Please note: this post includes a major spoiler about the conclusion of 1997's Titanic. Originally slated for theatrical release in the summer of 1997, James Cameron's Titanic was a tremendous risk at the time. Thanks to the global success of Aliens, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and True Lies, Cameron was known as an action director, so the prospect of him directing a romantic epic set on the doomed maiden voyage of the Rms Titanic in 1912 was surprising, to say the least. The shooting schedule was extended to more than five months in total and the budget reportedly expanded to about $200 million, making it the most expensive production in history. When Cameron realized that it would not be possible to finish the film in time for its scheduled release on July 2, it was...

How many xenomorphs will be in 'Alien: Covenant'?

28 January 2016 11:41 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just how many xenomorphs can we expect in Alien: Covenant? Director Ridley Scott already promised multiple variations of the vicious alien creatures in the forthcoming Prometheus sequel -- “We’ll have them all: egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy," he promised The Wrap -- but if this new casting call put out by Australian talent agency McTv is any indication, we could be looking at multiple full-grown xenomorphs in the film. Here's the breakdown: Age Range: 8-40 Physical Attributes: Skinny and very tall and skinny and very short but strong and very physically agile. Other Skills: Fast in Movement. Acrobats, Dancers, Gymnasts, Contortionist, Cirque du Soleil type performers As die-hard fans of Scott's original Alien know, that film's xenomorph was played in large part by 6'10" Bolaji Badejo, a London-based design student who was hired for his tall, thin frame. For scenes requiring more specialized physical movement, the creature »

Certificate: 18

Running Time: 330 minutes

Special Features: Documentaries, featurettes, cast and crew audio commentaries, image galleries, trailers and draft screenplays.

Who knew that one short story could produce such a cinematic legacy? Well that’s exactly what happened when English horror author Clive Barker penned the dark and disturbing tale The Hellbound Heart. The story was first published in 1986 and would go on to become the source material for the movie Hellraiser, which Barker also directed. The novella and film focusses on a mystical puzzle box known as the Lament Configuration and the horror it wreaks on the people unfortunate to come across it.

Hellraiser performed well and was granted a sequel which picked up right where the first film ended. It in turn was granted »

We terrify Film Nerd 2.0 with 'Alien,' 'Aliens,' and the 'Star Wars Holiday Special'

13 January 2016 4:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tears running down his face, the seven-year-old said, "Stop, Daddy! Stop! I can't take it anymore!" Considering the strange holiday line-up that I shared with Toshi and Allen, ages ten and seven, it is little wonder it almost ended in tears. But what kind of tears and why is a little less cut and dry than I might have supposed when this recent run of programming first came together. I've been seeing someone for a little while now, and it's been nice. She's met the boys and they like her tremendously, and vice-versa. The Monday after the film opened, the four of us went to see The Force Awakens together, the second time for the kids, the first time for her, and it was a great evening. They were excited about the film, about the evening out, about Star Wars in general. She was the one who brought up The Star Wars Holiday Special »

Photos of Sideshow’s Alien: Internecivus raptus Statue

13 January 2016 3:27 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

H.R. Giger's Alien design looks great in paintings and on film, but it's always been tough to capture the right pose on statues and action figures. Thankfully, Sideshow Collectibles was up for the challenge and will be releasing one of the most unique statues of the Xenomorph (also referred to as Internecivus raptus on Blu-ray / DVD special features) I've seen to date:

Featuring one of the most iconic alien species ever to grace the big screen, Sideshow is proud to present the Alien: Internecivus raptus Statue.

Translated from Latin as ‘murderous thief,’ Internecivus raptus is one of the few official names recorded for the xenomorph species moviegoers have come to recognize most famously as ‘Aliens.’

Faithfully rendered with H.R. Giger’s visionary bio-industrial aesthetic, the specimen is suspended in an elegant pose – its structural perfection matched only by its hostility.

British cinema behaviour: 67 examples of bad experiences

When things go wrong on a cinema trip, from bad customer service, noisy audiences, to, er, 'other things'...

As part of our survey on the behaviour of audiences in British cinemas, and how well cinema chains respond to it, we asked a couple of open questions. In this post, we're looking at where we asked for specific examples of good or bad behaviour and practice you've experienced from your cinema visits. We had over 2000 responses, so we've had to pick and choose. But here's a flavour of what you told us.

We've quoted verbatim, save for correcting the odd typo...

Technical problems

"We went to see The Martian at Cineworld in Nottingham recently. The first ten minutes of the movie was unwatchable, as the projector wasn't in focus. We went to alert the staff, who, while very off-hand and disinterested, did get the problem fixed. People arrived »
