Newswire: Here’s a photo of the crew of Alien: Convenant in happy times

21 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

This morning, 20th Century Fox unveiled a photo of the crew of the Covenant, the ship that’s inevitably going to run into some trouble in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant. It seems these space travelers just had a nice dinner, complete with some whiskey, and we even detect some smiles that will soon be wiped off their faces.

Alien: Covenant (@AlienAnthology) February 21, 2017

The group is flanked by Katherine Waterston and Michael Fassbender, the latter of whom is back from Prometheus. Elsewhere, you can spot Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Jussie Smollett, Danny McBride and Demián Bichir. Notably, James Franco is prominently featured at the center of the image, draped in some sort of blanket, staring dead-eyed into the camera. That placement seems to indicate that ...

New 'Alien: Covenant' Image Confirms James Franco Casting

22 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Ahead of a sneak peek Wednesday, a new image from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant has been released, showing the full crew of the Covenant for the first time — including the debut of a particularly dapper and presumably ill-fated James Franco.

Franco seemed curiously absent from the first trailer for Ridley Scott's follow-up to his 2012 franchise prequel Prometheus (although it's possible that he's the unfortunate figure who gets alien particulate in his ear at the 1:11 mark), so the sight of him standing in the center of the new image, wearing a blanket that looks like a robe, in »

Ahead of a new Alien: Covenant trailer sneaking in during the next episode of Legion on FX tomorrow evening, 20th Century Fox has released a new image of the full Alien: Covenant crew including a first look at James Franco as Captain Branson.

The crew picture which includes the movie’s stars, Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby, has a few too many smiles radiating out of the image. Where guessing they’ve all polished off that empty bottle of Jack Daniels on the table just a little too quickly.

Check out the new photo below from the upcoming film, and then watch Legion on FX tomorrow, February 22, for an exclusive Alien: Covenant debut.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Cast Assembles In New Look at Ridley Scott’s Much-Hyped Sequel

21 February 2017 8:24 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ridley Scott’s latest addition to the franchise he created more than forty years ago, “Alien: Covenant” doesn’t hit theaters until May 18th, but 20th Century Fox has released a new photo of the star-studded crew in the meantime. The studio will also air a sneak peek of the sci-fi thriller during FX’s broadcast of Noah Hawley’s critically acclaimed “Legion.”

The original “Alien” has a long list of sequels and prequels, most recently 2012’s “Prometheus,” which drew mixed reactions from fans and critics alike. “Covenant” picks up where “Prometheus” left off, with Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce returning to their roles. Rounding out the cast of “Covenant” are James Franco, Amy SeimetzKatherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, and, Jussie Smollett.

Alien: Covenant Crew Photo Has First Look at James Franco

21 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you didn't believe that James Franco was going to be part of the Alien: Covenant cast before, here's your definitive proof. 20th Century Fox has released the official Covenant Crew photo, and we see Franco standing front and center looking Jesus like in his white robes, and he's seen standing next to his frequent on-screen collaborator and sometimes comedy partner Danny McBride. Fox had this to say about the photo.

"Introducing the Alien Covenant crew. Check out the new photo below from the upcoming film, then watch Legion on FX tomorrow, February 22, for an exclusive Alien: Covenant debut."

So far, 20th Century Fox has released only one teaser trailer for Alien: Covenant. And this latest sneak peek doesn't sound like it will be the full-trailer either. Which makes us think that director Ridley Scott is being sneaky on his build-up to the May 19, 2017 release date. Perhaps much of the thrills, »

New Alien: Covenant Photo Confirms James Franco’s Role

21 February 2017 7:59 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Alien: Covenant continues to potentially be one of Ridley Scott’s most interesting movies. It isn’t just interesting because of the mythology that it hitches itself to, but rather how it ended up being an Alien film in the first place. First coined as a Prometheus sequel, it wasn’t long before Scott settled on an Alien name, the first being Alien: Paradise Lost. That one didn’t last too long, for a few weeks later, it was confirmed that the title change was Alien: Covenant. Why Covenant? Well, that’s the name of the ship that we’ll be riding with for the duration of the journey, and when all said and done, it certainly makes for a less pretentious title.

But what would the film be about? That was the $10,000 question, wasn’t it? Well, this one looks to be both a sequel to the divisive Prometheus, »

The crew of the Covenant gathers around the dinner table for what could be their last meal in a new photo from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant.

You can view the new photo below, and if you want to see a sneak peek of Alien: Covenant, be sure to watch Legion on FX tomorrow.

"Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. 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."

Bd Wong’s Shady Geneticist Will Be Back For Jurassic World 2

20 February 2017 7:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ahead of its launch next June, production on Universal’s Jurassic World 2 is officially underway in London, and it appears those early rumors linking Bd Wong with Juan Antonio Bayona’s monstrous sequel were right all along.

Taking to Instagram over the course of the weekend, Wong all but confirmed that he’ll reprise the role of shady geneticist Dr. Henry Wu, who was last seen fleeing Isla Nublar by helicopter with a raft of dinosaur embryos. Towards the end of Colin Trevorrow’s franchise revival, we learned that Wu actually held an alliance with Vic Hoskins (Vincent D’Onofrio) that involved licensing InGen’s research to the military. And we all know how much Hoskins wanted to assimilate the Velociraptors onto the battlefield.

Can we expect to see Wong’s pioneering research stretch beyond the parameters of Costa Rica come 2018? It would certainly appear so. Besides, such a plot »

Unlocked trailer, starring Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom

9 February 2017 1:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Feb 10, 2017

The trailer for terrorism-teeming thriller Unlocked teams CIA agent Noomi Rapace and MI5 agent Orlando Bloom.

The upcoming action thriller Unlocked will soon arrive as a surprisingly low-key affair, especially considering the rather impressive cast it brings. While the film industry has collectively pumped out more than its share of post-9/11 dramas filled with nightmarish scenarios in which the threat of wanton Western destruction is on the table, Unlocked seems to throw in a pinch of the conspiracy thriller genre, with an oil-and-water partnership.

The debut trailer for Unlocked showcases a slick, fast-paced suspenseful affair starring a CIA operative played by Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, the original Swedish The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), who, after the interrogation of a captured terrorist underling, comes upon crucial information about a biological attack on London that suddenly makes her a target from ersatz agents working for the terrorists. Forced to go on the run, »
