Harrison Ford discusses 'Blade Runner 2' during rowdy Reddit Ama

15 April 2014 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Oh, Harrison. While Harrison Ford is one of the few guys working right now who I could indisputably call "iconic," I find myself ambivalent about his persona when he's giving interviews. I've had some good chats with him, and some that were more difficult, and it completely seems to be up to his mood at the moment we sit down. The same can be said about his appearances on talk shows. He's done it well at times, and there are other interviews where it looks like he wants to crawl out of his skin, and for an actor, he seems to have no interest in disguising his feelings at all. He seems perfectly happy to snarl at someone if he thinks they ask him something stupid or obvious, which makes it extra-surprising that he was willing to do a Reddit Ama to help promote the new documentary series "Years Of Living Dangerously. »

Harrison Ford Excited to Return for Blade Runner Sequel

15 April 2014 5:21 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When Ridley Scott first revealed that he's working on "Alien" prequel, called "Prometheus," he also said that he's working on a sequel to his "Blade Runner" sci-fi film, which starred Harrison Ford. Now, while participating in an "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit, Ford commented on how he feels about potentially returning for "Blade Runner 2." He said: "I'm quite curious and excited about seeing a new script for 'Blade Runner.' If it's a good script I would be very anxious to work with Ridley Scott again, he's a very talented and passionate filmmaker. And I think it would be very interesting to revisit the character." Coincidentally, Ford also said that "Blade Runner" was the most difficult film he ever worked on, stating that the cast and crew worked fifty nights in a row and "it was always raining." »

DC Vertigo's Scalped TV Show In The Works

14 April 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

DC Entertainment have yet another tv adaptation of one of their comic books in the works, this time at Wgn America. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cable network is developing a series based on the Vertigo comic, Scalped, which is a pretty great crime tale set on a Native American reservation. The series will be written by Banshee scribe Doug Jung. When I interviewed Prometheus actor Logan Marshall-Green a while back, he said if he could play any comic book character it'd be Dashiell "Dash" Bad Horse from Scalped..so maybe now's his chance!  Jason Aaron's Scalped launched in 2007 and ran for 60 issues, ending in 2012. »

‘The Leftovers’ Teaser Trailer #2: The Departed Are the Lucky Ones

14 April 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Writer/producer Damon Lindelof isn’t known for backing down from a challenge, be it trying to weave together the convoluted mythology on Lost, pontificating on the nature of creation in Prometheus, or re-introducing an iconic Star Trek villain in Star Trek Into Darkness.

His next trick? A series about the Rapture titled The Leftovers, based on the popular award-winning novel written by Tom Perrotta (author of such books-turned film adaptations as Election and Little Children). The first teaser trailer released for HBO’s Leftovers TV show (created by Lindelof) hints at how the remaining people on Earth respond in different ways, after millions of their fellow humans from around the world vanish simultaneously.

The second Leftovers teaser (see above) is more on the nose, revealing that although a number of the folk left behind seek to deal with their pain and ...

James Cameron Wanted To Make 'Aliens 5' With Ridley Scott, Says 'Prometheus' "Didn't Add Up Logically"

14 April 2014 6:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You probably remember that at one point in the early aughts, Ridley Scott wanted to return to the 'Alien' franchise. This is years before “Prometheus” took shape and this version would have essentially been a more traditional “Aliens 5” with Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, and the alien battle taking place on Earth. But the “Aliens Vs. Predator” series not only stole the idea, but in the eyes of Scott, it sullied the franchise and he didn’t want anything to do with it. Though, they did consider it regardless for a while. "We’d have to go back to the drawing board on [the fifth alien film]," Weaver told MTV in 2008. "Ridley said that right away when we first talked about [a fifth film]." But in the end he wiped his hands clean of it all for years until he found the right way to reboot the series with the prequel-like “Prometheus.” But did you know »

‘Avatar’ Sequel Scripts Nearing Completion

14 April 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

James Cameron’s documentary series Years Of Living Dangerously arrives on Us television screens this week, and over the weekend he joined a Reddit Ama session to answer some burning questions from fans. Of course, when it comes to Cameron nobody can resist bringing up cinematic stunner Avatar, which blew away critics and audiences in 2009. With three sequels in the works there’s obviously a lot going into bringing them into production, with Cameron spilling some secrets:

“The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They’re essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks…The biggest pressure I feel right now is cutting out things I love to get the film down to a length that is affordable.

James Cameron Talks 'Battle Angel', 'True Lies 2', 'Terminator' and 'Alien 5'

12 April 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director James Cameron just finished his extensive Ama on Reddit, where he went over his entire career and discussed all of his movies, both future and past. In an unusually candid conversation, the man behind two of the world's biggest movie releases, Titanic and Avatar, was definitely asked anything and everything.

To read his comments about the future of the Avatar franchise: clickHere.

Read on for his comments about True Lies 2, Battle Angel, the future of the The Terminator franchise and the Alien franchise, where he discusses his thoughts, feelings and general attitude towards cinema at this point in time.

For years, we've heard that True Lies 2 is happening. These rumors have mostly been kept alive by Arnold Schwarzenegger's co-star Tom Arnold. According to James Cameron, we'll probably never see a sequel.

We abandoned True Lies 2 after 9/11, because we didn't think a comedy about fundamentalist terrorists was so funny anymore. »

Noomi Rapace Chases The Lead In Unlocked

11 April 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There are three moments a script on Hollywood's infamous "Black List" is guaranteed to experience. The first is when it actually makes the list, drawing the attention of script readers all over town. The second is when a studio eventually bites the bullet and options the script, because the next big thing is always just a step away. The third, and this is the make-or-break part for the script's lifespan, is whether the film is either dropped into turn around or put in front of the cameras. In the case of the terrorism thriller, Unlocked, the project is entering turn three, and according to Deadline, a steadily rising star is looking to join in on the fun. Noomi Rapace (Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, Prometheus) is at the bargaining table with producer Lorenzo Dibonaventura (of the G.I. Joe franchise) and director Mikael Hafstrom (of 1408 and most recently Escape Plan »

International Trailer for Deliver Us From Evil Starring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Sean Harris, and Joel McHale

10 April 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Screen Gems and Sony Pictures have released a new Deliver Us From Evil international trailer.  The film stars Eric Bana as a New York police officer who teams up with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez) to investigate a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes.  It's a fun premise: cop-drama-meets-exorcism-movie and mixing the two together could provide fresh life for both genres.  You also have a strong cast featuring not only Bana and Ramirez, but also Sean Harris (Prometheus), Olivia Munn, and Joel McHale even though the last two are known more for comedy than horror.  My only concern after watching this trailer is that putting these two genres may result in more clichés than exciting entertainment. Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Deliver Us from Evil opens July 2nd. Here’s the official synopsis for Deliver Us from Evil: In Deliver Us From Evil, New York police »

Prometheus 2: 10 Lessons It Must Learn In Order To Succeed

10 April 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Last month Ridley Scott’s 2016 “mystery project” was finally revealed – after a lot of speculation on movie forums, 20th Century Fox announced that the film in question will be the sequel to Prometheus, with Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender reprising their roles of Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and David.

The announcement immediately reopened the can of worms regarding the merits of Prometheus (something which this article will be guilty of doing in a moment), a movie which has stirred up no end of debate since its release. Is it a cinematic masterpiece or a hugely wasted opportunity to really flesh out the Alien mythology? Or is it – more plausibly – something in between; a decent science fiction film based on a much-loved franchise that’s as entertaining as it is over-ambitious?

To many, Prometheus felt like a project in which the makers – aware of the great expectations the movie »

Battlestar Galactica To Be Revived For The Big Screen?

8 April 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Prometheus 2: 10 Questions The Film Needs To Answer

8 April 2014 2:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

In space, no one can hear you scream. Well, unless it’s the collective groans of about a million Alien fans when promised prequel Prometheus delivered itself to the cinema, only to tell a 99% standalone story told practically adjacent to the mythos and story of the ill-fated Nostromo. That sound was practically heard in every part of the cosmos.

Ridley Scott, a talented director, broke ground with the claustrophobic space thriller Alien that introduced body horror and Cthulu-esque terror to a whole new generation, and delighted fans around the world when he announced new film Prometheus would deal with the story before his previous effort. Not everyone was satisfied, expecting Scott to pull out all the stops to craft a dark, thrilling prologue that upon its finale would lead directly into the events that preceded Alien.

Not every question was answered – far from it – but a larger, »
