The New Trailer For MacBeth Arrives

1 September 2015 1:34 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Weinstein Company has released a new trailer for their upcoming film, MacBeth.

Starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, MacBeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition, set in war torn Scottish landscape.

MacBeth is directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) and stars Academy-Award nominee Michael Fassbender (12 Years A Slave) and Academy-Award winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose). The film also stars Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum), David Thewlis (the Harry Potter series), Sean Harris (Prometheus), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) and Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby).

5 movies you need to see this September: Two Tom Hardys for the price of one

1 September 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Two Tom Hardys for the price of one, a mission to Mars going horribly wrong for Matt Damon and a Jason Statham-less Transporter are among this month's movie treats. Here are five new cinema releases worth seeing over the next four weeks.

1. The Transporter Refuelled

Release date: September 4

Why you should see it: Ditching Jason Statham from the Transporter series sounds like madness, but his replacement Ed Skrein looks like he has the required skills based on the brutal trailers. This time around killer courier Frank Martin meets his dad, who's played by hard-as-nails Punisher star Ray Stevenson. Fists will fly.

2. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Release date: September 4

Why you should see it: This little Us indie caused a stir at Sundance earlier this year and finally arrives in the UK this month. It may not have a mega-budget or big stars, but it's a moving »

Trailer Trashin’: Matt Damon is Lost in Space in The Martian Official Trailer

28 August 2015 7:29 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s the last weekend of August, dear readers, and the summer movie season is at an end. But there’s still plenty of cool stuff coming to our theaters this year, from James Bond to Star Wars and everything in between. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at The Martian, the upcoming sci-fi film from director Ridley Scott.

Premise: A manned mission to Mars goes awry, and astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead and left behind on the planet by his crew. Watney fights to survive in the harsh environment and to signal to others that he is still alive. Upon discovering Watney’s signal Nasa, scientists all around Earth, and his crew members collaborate to find a way to rescue him.

My take: English filmmaker Ridley Scott has had a good relationship with science-fiction. The two films that helped put him on »

Prometheus 2 is definitely Ridley Scott's next film

27 August 2015 10:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ridley Scott is definitely directing Prometheus 2, it's definitely his next film, and he's already been scouting locations...

There were suggestions at one stage that Ridley Scott would pass on directing the sequel to Prometheus, and take a producer role on the new movie. After all, his slate of projects is hardly small, and he's making major, complicated films at a rate of one a year right now. His next, The Martian, is due out in the autumn.

In recent months, it then started to look as if he was interested once more in directing Prometheus 2 himself, and so it became a case of seeing where the film would land on his slate. Pretty much right now is the answer. The movie is reported to head into production early in 2016, and chatting to Empire, he's confirmed what he's up to next.

"I was already on to my next movie", Scott said, »

Neil deGrasse Tyson Examines the Ares 3 in 'The Martian' Promo

27 August 2015 6:20 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Our adventure is just beginning. Whoa! This is awesome. Fox has debuted an intriguing new promo video for Ridley Scott's The Martian, featuring real-world astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson examining and discussing the Ares 3 mission to Mars. With all the footage we've seen it looks like they're trying to make this as realistic as possible, as if this mission was actually taking place. And I love that angle because it really does make this feel more real, and like it's actually possible. This video delves into the ideas about Mars and why we want to go there, and how we're going to get there. It's a very nice primer for this movie. Here's the new promo for Ridley Scott's The Martian, with Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about Ares 3: You can also see the second trailer for The Martian here with tons of footage + the Ares 3 video promo.

Earlier this month we found out that production on the Prometheus sequel was hoping to get underway in January 2016, which would seem to indicate that it would be Ridley Scott's next film after The Martian.

Ridley Scott Confirms 'Prometheus 2' Is His Next Movie

27 August 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ridley Scott is busier than ever, and there has been some speculation as to whether or not he would revisit the world of Blade Runner or Alien first. As suspected, the prolific filmmaker has confirmed that Prometheus 2, a sequel to his 2012 Alien prequel Prometheus, will be his next movie as a director. He has The Martian coming out this October, but as soon as it was wrapped, he didn't hesitate to jump into preproduction on this upcoming sci-fi thriller.

Prometheus originated as a prologue to the action seen in Ridley Scott's 1979 horror classic Alien. But the movie morphed into something much greater than a mere prequel, becoming its own thing and igniting a new franchise for 20th Century Fox. It took some pretty complicated ideas head-on and in turn tore audiences in two. Some longtime fans loved it, others hated it, but there is no denying it is interesting. »

Here's how Star Wars: The Force Awakens' ball droid Bb-8 was made

27 August 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Those fantastically nerdy folk over at StarWars.com have revealed just how the new droid in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was made. The answer? With great difficulty.

After all, director Jj Abrams was looking for practical effect puppetry from his SFX crew, which meant they had to actually create a working robot... kind of.

The ultimate solution was to build several different versions of the little bucket of bolts - six in total:

The "wiggler", which was static, but could twist and turn on the spot and was used for close-ups.

Two trike versions, which had stabiliser wheels, allowing them to be driven by remote control without a puppeteer in the shot.

A version that could be picked up by actors and controlled via remote.

The "bowling ball" version, which could literally be thrown into a shot and never fall down.

The rod-puppet "acting on-set" version, which was »

"Prometheus," "Guardians" Sequel Updates

27 August 2015 4:10 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following numerous rumors, Ridley Scott has now officially confirmed that the sequel to "Prometheus" will be his immediate next film.

Speaking with Empire to promote this Fall's release of his Matt Damon-led astronaut drama "The Martian," both Damon and Scott confirmed that the latter is already well underway on getting the film ready to shoot.

Damon says: "Ridley was done with the movie [The Martian] about two weeks after we shot!" to which Scott followed up with: "I was already on to my next movie! I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is 'Prometheus 2.'"

At last report the follow-up to the "Alien" franchise prequel will kick off filming in January and will be out in cinemas (likely Summer 2017) before Neill Blomkamp's fifth "Alien" movie - a film which Scott will executive produce.

In news of another sequel, filmmaker James Gunn has confirmed »

The Martian – New Stills Drop For The Sci-Fi Adaptation

26 August 2015 12:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The marketing machine for Ridley Scott’s The Martian has really jumped up a gear in the last few weeks.

Following a second trailer, Empire have unveiled a pair of new set photos from the upcoming sci-fi adaptation.

Check them out below.

20th Century Fox 20th Century Fox

The Martian follows astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) after he’s left stranded on an alien planet in error. Watney has to find a way to survive, whilst his superiors back on earth debate whether a rescue mission is a viable course of action.

The stills don’t reveal much extra, rather just emphasising  Damon’s prevalence in the movie, and underlining the complications of shooting a story set in space. Although, as someone who hasn’t the read the book, the fact Damon looks to be underwater in one of the images seems like an odd, but potentially intriguing development, »

Last fall, it was Christopher Nolan who took us into outer space with "Interstellar," and now a year later, Ridley Scott is tasked with wowing audiences with "The Martian." It's the filmmaker's second return to sci-fi following "Prometheus," and Fox seems to be pretty pumped with a splashy Tiff premiere on the horizon.

'The Martian' TV Trailer Launches Matt Damon Into Space

24 August 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just last week, 20th Century Fox released an all-new trailer for director Ridley Scott's latest sci-fi masterpiece The Martian. Then, last night, during the Fear the Walking Dead premiere, they debuted the first TV spot, which gave us an extended look at the movie. We have that preview for you here, now, if you missed it last night. It features a star-studded cast that includes Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pe&#241a, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.

This latest footage is pretty close to what we saw in trailer #2. Matt Damon proclaims himself the world's best botanist as he fights to survive on Mars. The look and tone of the movie are very similar to Ridley Scott's 2012 thriller Prometheus. But this movie is firmly establishing its own sense of humor. That's something we don't typically get from Ridley Scott, and it's a welcome change. »

Prometheus 2: 8 Fan Theories For What To Expect

23 August 2015 5:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox/Warner Bros.

There were a lot of people who thought that it would never happen; that Ridley Scott’s follow-up to his sort-of Alien prequel, Prometheus, was doomed to linger in development hell forever – a project that would never quite find a way to find itself properly green-lit.

But then came the news: Scott was still interested in making the follow-up, despite the fact that he opted to direct three unrelated movies in the aftermath of the film’s release, and 20th Century Fox even plan to unveil the picture ahead of Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5.

Prometheus 2 is set to start filming in January, then, with both Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender reprising their roles from the first film – as a result, interest in the somewhat belated sequel has started to explode to life all over again. The original picture was something of a divisive film, of course »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation has crossed the $400 million mark at the global box office, with the fifth instalment of the spy series having grossed $146.1 million domestically and $259.2 million from international markets for a worldwide haul of $405.3 million and counting.

Tom Cruise’s latest outing as Ethan Hunt has now surpassed the lowest-grossing instalment in the series, Mission: Impossible III ($397.9 million) and will likely catch the $457.7 million made by the 1996 original in the coming weeks. It could still catch Mission: Impossible II ($546.4 million), although franchise leader Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol looks pretty safe with $694.7 million.

Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange: Everything you need to know, from release date to spoilers

21 August 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Though The Avengers: Age of Ultron felt much more like the closing of a chapter, it was the release of Ant-Man last month that officially concluded Marvel Studios' Phase Two.

We've all heard plenty about Captain America: Civil War, which will kick off Phase Three, but what of the movie that will follow in its sizable footsteps?

Below, Digital Spy rounds up everything we know so far about Doctor Strange.

When's it out?

Doctor Strange is scheduled for release on October 28, 2016 in the UK, and a week later in the Us on November 4. Principal photography is due to start in November in London.

The release date has already been pushed back from the formerly announced July slot, presumably to accommodate the star's notoriously packed schedule.

What's it about?

Guardians of the Galaxy was widely billed as Marvel's "anti-superhero movie", and Marvel Studios certainly have form with roguish anti-heroes given »
