Noomi Rapace Has A Great Idea For Who The Villains Should Be In Prometheus 2

24 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

At the end of Ridley Scott's Prometheus, Noomi Rapace's character of Elizabeth Shaw finally got to meet one of the Engineers that created her and the rest of humanity. The only trouble with that meeting was that it turned out the gods who created us wanted to take us out of this universe just as quickly, and had the weapons to do so. After a climactic battle that eventually created the Xenomorphs from the Alien series, we were left with Shaw and David (or what's left of him) heading off to find more of the answers that she's been searching for. Despite Ridley Scott ruling out the Xenomorphs as being the villains in Prometheus 2, Noomi Rapace revealed in an MTV UK interview to promote The Drop that her idea for the next villains in the biological/theological sci-fi franchise are probably the biggest options available. God maybe. »

See how Ridley Scott terraformed Spain into Ancient Egypt for 'Exodus'

24 October 2014 5:54 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Epic can’t be faked. CG magic can only take directors partway. Without an element of the real to hang on, digitally rendered wideshots filled with simulated armies are going to trigger our scrutinous brains. Blame Cecil B. DeMille and David Lean. Audiences know how epic is done right. Reviving that “golden age” definition seems to be Ridley Scott’s prerogative on “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” Released footage still teases massive amounts of special effects — Moses’s 10 plagues look like a barrage attack exploding out of Zod’s “Man of Steel” World Machine — but there’s a foundation of reality. Landscapes are speckled with fantastical elements. “Exodus” kindly refuses the “300” style. We get a taste of Scott’s commitment to verisimilitude, the ol’ fashioned way of movie making, in a new “Exodus: Gods and Kings” featurette. Looking behind the scenes at the locations in the film, the video reveals Ancient »

Noomi Rapace Discusses Prometheus 2 Storyline

24 October 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Last month, director Ridley Scott revealed that the Xenomorph creature from the original "Alien" films will not appear in the upcoming "Prometheus" sequel. Now, in a new interview with MTV, Noomi Rapace spoke about where the follow-up is headed. "I know Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace) wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one," she explained. "I don't want to go back. She can't go to Earth, because there's nothing left for her there, really. She wants to go to where they came from, these giant creatures. I think, in her head, that's a dark paradise, in a way, so what's there? I don't know. I think she wants answers, she wants to know, and I feel like I'm sharing her curiosity, but also anger." Since the film won't have Xenomorphs, what else can the characters run into? "God, maybe? God or Devil, I don't know," Rapace continued. »

Rapace Talks "Prometheus" Sequel Progress

24 October 2014 1:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Ridley Scott confirming last month that the xenomorphs from the original "Alien" films won't be showing up in the "Prometheus" sequel, questions have quickly arisen as to what we will see in the new film.

We do know the film will see the return of Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw and potentially Michael Fassbender as the head of the android David. Rapace was asked about the sequel recently by MTV UK and offered her thoughts on where her character might go:

"Well, I know Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one. I don't want to go back. She can't go to Earth, because there's nothing left for her there, really. She wants to go to where they came from, these giant creatures. I think, in her head, that's a dark paradise, in a way, so what's there? I don't know. I think she wants answers, »

'Prometheus 2': Noomi Rapace Talks New Villains and Story Ideas

23 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Ridley Scott revealed that the classic Xenomorph creatures from his original Alien franchise will not be present in his highly-anticipated follow-up Prometheus 2. This news had many fans wondering who (or what) will be the primary villain in this upcoming sequel, which is currently being written. That report also revealed that Noomi Rapace will return as Elizabeth Shaw, and the actress recently offered her thoughts about where she hopes the sequel is heading, in an interview with MTV UK.

"Well, I know Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one. I don't want to go back. She can't go to Earth, because there's nothing left for her there, really.

New Trailer For Ridley Scott's 'Halo: Nightfall'

22 October 2014 11:46 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The new trailer for the live-action digital series Halo: Nightfall has the look of both Alien and Prometheus, and rightfully so since Ridley Scott serves as the series' executive producer. You can check out the trailer below.

Halo: Nightfall focuses on a surgically-enhanced agent named Jameson Locke, played by Mike Colter, and his investigation into a biological weapon affecting only humans. A multitude of classic weapons from the series seem to make an appearance, including an energy sword wielded by a Covenant soldier. The story takes place between the events of Halo 4 and the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians.

Sergio Mimica-Gezzan directed the series from a script by Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring. Scott and David Zucker are executive producing the project. Halo: Nightfall will premiere on November 10th, as part of the official HaloFest livestream.

Ridley Scott's Halo: Nightfall Looks as Good as a Feature Film [Trailer]

22 October 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

I don't know from video games, but I know fans of the Halo series have been dreaming of a feature film for many, many years. While the news that Ridley Scott would produce a "digital series" was likely enticing, I don't think anyone expected Halo:Nightfall to look as big budget and glossy as this!

This trailer feels like it's for a blockbuster. We don't have a famous face, but we do have some great acting talent here in Mike Colter (The Good Wife) and a cast of others including Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day), Steve Waddington (The Last Of The Mohicans), Luke Neal (Wilderness) and Christian Contreras (Zero Dark Thirty.

Besides the acting you've got big visuals and scope and simply stunning cinematography that put Halo: Nightfall somewhere between Prometheus and Aliens visuall [Continued ...] »

How Will Sean Bean Die In Ridley Scott’s Latest?

20 October 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sean Bean has just been cast in Ridley Scott’s latest film, The Martian. He joins an already awesome cast which includes Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, and Kristin Wiig. Based on an e-book by author Andy Weir, which was published in 2012 and then published in paperback this year, the film will follow the first man on Mars. Bean will play the Nasa flight director.

Of course, all us Bean fans are wondering how the man of many deaths will meet his maker. Research shows that Bean’s film’s box office correlates directly with whether or not he dies, and the more gruesome his death, the higher the box office (*statistics yet to be verified by anybody of any importance). So how will Bean die in this latest offering from the Prometheus and Blade Runner director?

Well, it sounds as though Bean will remain on Earth, »

Noomi Rapace says God could be the baddie in Prometheus 2

20 October 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month Ridley Scott gave an update on the status of Prometheus 2, during which he stated that the iconic Xenomorph from his 1979 sci-fi classic Alien was “cooked” and would be absent from the next film as he continues to take the series in another direction. Now Prometheus star Noomi Rapace has shared her thoughts on who could be the antagonist of the follow-up, telling MTV News that:

“God, maybe? Or the devil? I don’t know where [Ridley's] gonna take us but I can’t wait to go there. I don’t know what we’re going to discover. Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. She can’t go to earth, there’s nothing left for her there really. She wants to go where [the Engineers] came from. She wants answers, she wants to know. I feel like I’m sharing her curiosity, but also her anger.”

58th BFI London Film Festival – Second Coming (2014)

19 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Second Coming, 2014.

Directed by Debbie Tucker Green.

Starring Idris ElbaNadine Marshall and Alex Lanipekun.

Synopsis:

A London woman is slowly driven mad by suddenly and inexplicably becoming pregnant.

Naming your film after a poorly received Stone Roses album could be a creative risk, but when your protagonist, Jax (Nadine Marshall), suddenly becomes pregnant without conception, you might just be justified. Her story is that of cramped kitchens and overcast council estates, all seen through the slightly shaky camera of British realism. Grounding such a fantastical premise (divine conception) in this gritty tradition gives the film a poetic aesthetic. Unforuntaely, though, the lengthy opening segment is a bit too realistic…i.e. mundane.

Luckily, surprise Idris Elba (Prometheus, Luther) is a wonderful thing. He can pop up anywhere. Be it in Sky TV commercials, DJ spots at swanky Shoreditch parties or in independent British cinema by first-time female directors, the man is immune to overexposure. »

Noomi Rapace: 'God could be the villain in Prometheus 2'

17 October 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Noomi Rapace has spoken about Ridley Scott's upcoming Prometheus sequel.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actress, who played Elizabeth Shaw in the 2012 sci-fi, discussed the nature of the villains in the forthcoming sequel, after it was revealed that the iconic xenomorph aliens would not be appearing.

When asked by MTV News about who the follow-up's antagonist could be, Rapace replied: "God, maybe? Or the devil? I don't know where [Ridley's] gonna take us but I can't wait to go there. I don't know what we're going to discover."

Scott has previously said that he is retiring Hr Giger's classic Alien design for the sequel.

2012's Prometheus revealed the origin of the xenomorph aliens.

Rapace continued to say of the next instalment: "Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. She can't go to earth, there's nothing left for her there really.

"She wants to go where [the Engineers] came from. She wants answers, »

[Comic Execution] 10/17 – Prometheus, The Evil Within, The Storyteller

17 October 2014 6:27 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

The playlist to tonight’s column? Revocation‘s new brutal thrash metal masterpiece “Deathless.” Landing right smack in the middle of October, I have to mention how much energy this record instills in me. The thing about “Deathless” is that it marks an absolute highwater mark for Revocation, nailing the insanely technical flair they were previously known for while stepping up the songwriting a full notch, producing some of their most intense, melodic and catchy work since their inception. This isn’t a review because I’m a casual metal fan and that’s why I mention this album; outside a Dethklok album (or maybe High On Fire), “Deathless” truly embodies the best that modern metal has to offer. Listening to it is akin to snorting a line of demon cocaine off the butt of Satan itself.

So if this week’s column seems a little more aggressive than usual, »

Noomi Rapace Discusses Which Villains We Can Expect In Prometheus 2

16 October 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once Ridley Scott wraps up the final touches to his epic, Exodus: Gods And Kings, he’ll be turning his attention to The Martian. It’s to be expected, as that’s his next slated project and one that’s gathering steam at an alarming rate. However, if you were to ask any fan of the director which of his upcoming titles they’re most looking forward to, you’ll likely be presented with two options: Blade Runner 2 or Prometheus 2. The latter of which is still some ways off, but is never out of the news due to a massive amount of interest in the sci-fi sequel.

Scott threw a damp squib into proceedings last month when he announced flat out that there’d be absolutely No xenomorphs in the movie. After this particular writer finally stopped blubbing, it became clear that the move is to distinguish the follow-up »

Director Ridley Scott continues to be a busy man, particularly with his latest ventures into old material, including the Alien/Prometheus and Blade Runner franchises. Now, he's jumping back into a lesser-known property; The Hot Zone, a TV limited series for Fox TV. Back in 1992, Scott was hired to direct Crisis In The Hot Zone, based on the novel "The Hot Zone" by Richard Preston, which chronicled the initial outbreak of the Ebola virus.

Prometheus 2: 9 Things Need To Happen

16 October 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Have you ever wondered why Prometheus got such a slagging off by fans of the Alien franchise? Ridley Scott may have stated upon the release of Prometheus that the film wasn’t supposed to be a direct prequel to Alien like originally intended, but his attempt at placating the inevitable fan fallout did little to subdue the immense disappointment that fans felt upon watching a film that clearly had problems with trying to decide whether it was a prequel or not.

It’s still the biggest gripe that many have with the film two years on, but that problem has a knack for overshadowing some of the other glaring problems that the film needs to rectify if Ridley Scott ever hopes to produce a superior sequel. First and foremost, if a sequel is to feature more scientists, they need to actually behave like them – not throw all logical thought out the window. »

Ewan McGregor Rumored to Be in the Running for 'Doctor Strange'

14 October 2014 4:34 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For those who haven't heard, Joaquin Phoenix is officially out of the running for Marvel's forthcoming Phase Three title Doctor Strange. He was in talks, but apparently it just didn't work out. So now Marvel is still looking for a leading man to become the Sorcerer Supreme in the film directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). And in typical internet fashion, a new rumor has popped up from Badass Digest, citing an untested source, that has pegged Ewan McGregor as doing some research for the role by checking out some comic books. But it sounds like he's one of a few contenders. That being said, it's not clear what other names might be in the running either. But given the age range of Joaquin Phoenix and Ewan McGregor, who are respectively 39 and 43, they're clearly looking for somebody with experience. Some people have been asking Keanu Reeves »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Prometheus

14 October 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Prometheus is an oddity. Not only is it an example of a great sci-fi film, but it’s also an example of a bad one. For all the fan service to Alien fans, terrific visual quality, interesting premise and excellent acting; Prometheus also suffers heavily from an identity problem. While in development, the script for the film notoriously underwent several complete script rewrites, unable to decide on whether it was simply a grand, space faring adventure set in the Alien universe, of a fully-fledged prequel to the franchise that made Ridley Scott famous.

We can’t provide a definitive answer for you, but what we can do is provide you with some information which will hopefully help you make up your own mind as to what the ultimate intentions of the film were. In addition to helping you answer just what in the hell that ‘thing’ was »

Casting: Dave Bautista Rumored For 'Bond 24,' 'Mission: Imposssible 5' Gets Villain And More

13 October 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, and Naomie Harris may be getting an unlikely playmate in "Bond 24." Wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista, last seen mixing it up on the big screen in "Guardians Of The Galaxy," is rumored to have landed a bad guy role "in the tradition of Jaws or Oddjob." Bautista in a Sam Mendes-directed movie? Guess we'll see. Cameras roll in December. [Latino Review] Sean Harris has been offered the villain role in "Mission: Impossible 5." The increasingly busy actor's recent credits include "'71," "Southcliffe," "The Borgias," and "Prometheus," and basically, if you watch movies even casually, you've seen him in something. [Deadline] With "Underworld 5" moving ahead with Theo James in the lead, the presumption was that Kate Beckinsale was moving on. Not quite. At New York Comic-Con Len Wiseman revealed, "we have another film in the »
