‘Aliens’ 30th Anniversary Comic-Con Panel: Watch The Q&A Live Stream Now

22 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This year marks the 30th anniversary of James Cameron’s landmark sci-fi action film “Aliens,” a critical and commercial hit that’s widely considered one of the best films of the 1980s.

The first sequel to the film “Alien,” stars Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of the attack on the Nostromo, as she returns to the planet where her crew encountered the Alien, only this time with a crew of space marines. Naturally, everything goes wrong, and it’s up to Ripley to stop another attack from killing her and a traumatized young girl named Newt (Carrie Henn).

Now, the film’s cast are celebrating the anniversary with a panel at this year’s Comic-Con, with a live stream Q&A featuring questions from audience members and the Internet. The people participating include James Cameron, producer Gale Anne Hurd, Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, »

Danny McBride shows off the cockpit in Alien: Covenant behind-the-scenes photo

22 July 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the end of production on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant, star Danny McBride took to Instagram to share a photo of himself on set. In the film, McBride portrays a pilot, so it’s only fitting that the posted picture features the actor in his ship’s cockpit, sporting a space cowboy look. The snapshot was accompanied by a caption that read, “That’s a wrap on #aliencovenant. Ridley is going to scare the shit out of you.” See it here…

Of course, the actor is best known for his comedic work in such films and TV shows as Pineapple Express, This is the End, Eastbound and Down and Vice Principals (which premiered on HBO last week), so Covenant will certainly be new territory for McBride, as it brings him into a darker and more horror-infused environment. 

Lastly, the first behind-the-scenes photo from Alien: Covenant showing »

Danny McBride Takes You Behind The Scenes Of Alien: Covenant In New Pic

22 July 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production has officially wrapped on the set of Alien: Covenant – but not before Danny McBride can share another behind-the-scenes snap.

Set to take the helm of Ridley Scott’s titular space vessel, McBride took to Instagram to post one final look into what we assume to be the cockpit of the Covenant, promising that, “Ridley is going to scare the shit out of you.” Given the awe-inspiring set photos coupled with the promise of a Xenomorph slithering onto the scene, we’re inclined to believe him.

Hoping to correct course after the largely underwhelming Prometheus – it was by no means Alien: Resurrection, but Scott’s prequel spinoff paled in comparison to the director’s original classic – Alien Covenant is the second chapter in the filmmaker’s planned prequel trilogy, one that has subsequently ordered Neill Blomkamp’s proposed Alien sequel to the shelf, for now. Should that plan take shape, »

Film Review: 'Star Trek Beyond'

21 July 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A deep sense of nostalgia bookends the latest entry in the fifty year old Star Trek saga, Beyond. First, nostalgia for Earth (the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are space-weary, having been on an exploratory mission for three years); later, nostalgia for a new adventure (certain mid-movie mishaps forces them into a temporary space vacation, and they long to get back out there). In between lies a half decent action movie with engaging if familiar characters, and just enough action to keep you mostly interested. But even the diehard fans of the series may leave the theater with some wistfulness of their own—longing perhaps for the days of J.J. Abrams, when the films really dared go where they had not before.

To its credit, Star Trek Beyond strives hard, successfully, to feel more like an extended episode of the TV show than a modern, soapy Hollywood blockbuster. »

As you can see its an intriguing image of lead actress Katherine Waterston (playing a character named Daniels) who is kitted out in very familiar garb. Is anyone else thinking Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley?

Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and Billy Crudup also star in the film, which will be released next summer.

A New Behind-The-Scenes Look At Katherine Waterson's Daniels As Alien: Covenant Wraps Filming

19 July 2016 2:52 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ridley Scott's sequel to the divisive Prometheus, Alien: Covenant, has wrapped, and the Alien Anthology Twitter account has shared a stylish new behind-the-scenes pic of the director alongside a grinning Katherine Waterson (Inherent Vice). There seems to be little doubt that her character's look pays homage to Sigourney Weaver's Ripley, and rumor has it that Daniels may actually be the iconic officer's mother. You can check out some more Bts images Here and Here. “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.” Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demien Bichir and Danny McBride, and is set to hit theaters on August 4, 2017. »

Katherine Waterston is looking very, very Ripley-esque in new 'Alien: Covenant' image

19 July 2016 2:21 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Warning: There is a potentially major Alien: Covenant spoiler below. Proceed no further if you're sensitive to that kind of thing. ....... ....... ....... Back in June, The Playlist reported that Katherine Waterston would be playing Ellen Ripley's mother in Alien: Covenant, the Prometheus sequel/Alien prequel which just wrapped filming with director Ridley Scott. While that's an unconfirmed bit of information, this wrap photo posted to the official Alien Anthology Twitter today certainly shows Waterston looking very, very Ripley-esque:  Filming has wrapped. The next phase begins. #AlienCovenant pic.twitter.com/tH19MTGjfB — Alien Anthology (@AlienAnthology) July 19, 2016 Indeed, with her close-cropped hair, light-colored top and over-the-shoulder holster, the look of Waterston's character closely resembles Ripley's from Aliens. If nothing else, the photo will certainly fuel further speculation on the link between the two women. I mean, look, it's already happening! Thanks for the content, guys. Alien: Covenant hits theaters on August 4, 2017. »

19 July 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Such is the gravity of post-production and CGI work on Hollywood’s marquee releases, that some of 2017’s biggest releases are already beginning to wrap filming. Just yesterday, we brought you the news that The Mummy, Universal’s modern redo of the cult supernatural thriller, had completed principal photography in London and now, Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant will join it in post.

That’s according to the ever-active Alien Anthology Twitter feed (thanks, Collider), which has also unearthed what is surely the final set photo of Covenant, spotlighting Ridley Scott opposite Inherent Vice breakout Katherine Waterston.

Alien: Covenant Wraps; Ridley Scott Shares New Set Photo

19 July 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, production began on 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated Alien: Covenant, which not only serves as a sequel to 2012's Prometheus, but starts a new trilogy that will help bridge the gap to the original 1979 classic Alien. Today we have word that production has officially wrapped, along with a final photo from the set with director Ridley Scott and star Katherine Waterston.

The set photo debuted through the Alien franchise's official Twitter, which teased that "the next phase begins" after filming has wrapped. Unfortunately, the photo doesn't reveal too much, although we haven't seen or heard too much from the set since filming began. We did see a set video earlier this month that revealed a Xenomorph, along with previous glimpses of Michael Fassbender and Danny McBride on the set. Unfortunately, we won't be getting a glimpse of this movie at Comic-Con, since 20th Century Fox is skipping the convention entirely. »

Sigourney Weaver says Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 will give Ripley a satisfying ending

17 July 2016 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before Ridley Scott decided to press ahead with his Prometheus sequel / Alien prequel Alien: Covenant, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp was gearing up to enter the Alien universe with a sequel to the first two movies, which would have saw Sigourney Weaver returning as Ripley alongside her Aliens co-star Michael Biehn as Hicks. Although it is now on indefinite hold, Weaver has revealed to EW that she’s still committed to the project and feels it will deliver a satisfying ending for her character.

“We have a great script. Fox asked us to delay so Ridley Scott could shoot his [second] Prometheus movie. That was too bad because we would have already done it by now. It’s a great story and it’s satisfying to me to give this woman an ending. The script itself has so much in it that’s so original, but also really satisfies the, I would say, »

Sigourney Weaver Says Neill Blomkamp’s Aliens Follow-Up Will Give Ripley A Satisfying Ending

14 July 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The untitled Neill BlomkampAlien” film is set to feature the return of Sigourney Weaver (Ripley) and Michael Biehn (Cpl. Hicks). Even though the plot for the film is currently unknown, we have been provided with some awesome concept art that showcased a scarred Hicks, a battle ready Ripley, and an all grown up Newt. Earlier last year, it was revealed by Blomkamp that his new Alien film will take place after Aliens, and ignore the events of Alien 3 and 4. “My favorites are the first two movies, so I want to make a film that’s connected to Alien and Aliens. That’s my goal. I’m not trying to undo Alien 3 or Alien: Resurrection, I just want it to be connected to Alien 1 and 2.” The Aliens sequel was set to be released next year, however, the filming of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus-sequel caused Fox to shelve Blomkamp’s project. »

Star Trek Into Darkness: exploring the plot three years on

Ryan Lambie Jul 15, 2016

How does Star Trek Into Darkness's plot hold up three years on? Ryan takes a closer look...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus.

It's often the case that post-screening conversations are as much fun as the cinema visit itself. Whether a film's good or bad, sitting and dissecting a movie over a drink or during the car journey home is as much a part of the theatre-going experience as buying popcorn or the joyful sense of anticipation as the lights go down.

Sometimes, it's the most bewildering movies that provoke the most enjoyable discussions. I can still remember the exchanges I had with a friend after watching 2012's Prometheus: why did Rafe Spall tickle that evil-looking space snake? Why did Old Man Weyland hide aboard a ship that was his in the first place? Why didn't Charlize Theron run »
