The Lost creator and director of the irritatingly gappy Star Trek films knows a thing or two about scriptural fudges. Let's pray he doesn't put another universe at risk with his breakneck pacing
Spoiler warning: read if you've seen Star Trek: Into Darkness
When Jj Abrams was announced earlier this year as the surprise director of the new Star Wars film following Disney's $4bn buyout of George Lucas's gently disintegrating space opera empire in October, there were few dissenting voices to be heard. Here was a director who had taken rival sci-fi film series Star Trek and reinvigorated the whole affair with some much-needed razzmatazz, in the process transforming a saga that had been a niche concern for decades into a must-see proposition for anyone remotely interested in big-budget spectacle-heavy film-making. This was after turning round the Mission: Impossible series following John Woo's dumb second instalment with »

Cinemax just recruited a Marine sniper. Okay, so Prometheus actor Logan Marshall-Green isn’t really a soldier, but he’ll play one on TV. The network chose him to star in their new drama pilot titled Quarry.
The pilot is based upon a Max Allan Collins’ book, which follows a Marine sniper who returns home from Vietnam in 1973 to become disillusioned by the America he finds. It isn’t the one he left behind and it isn’t kind to him. “Combat-hardened and disillusioned, he’s recruited into a network of contract killers and corruption spanning the length of the Mississippi River,” reported THR. I told you it was a drama, and what a drama, but I see exciting thriller elements here as well.
If you are thinking that the title is weird, don’t. A quarry holds rocks and any member of the military can tell you there are »

As Warner Bros. gears up to unleash its giant robots vs giant monsters epic Pacific Rim, the studio has released the first in a series of behind-the-scenes production blogs, with filmmaker Guillermo del Toro providing an insight into his kaiju homage by introducing 'The Drift Space' and how it's used to power the film's Jaegers; check it out below, after the official synopsis:
"When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no »

Radius-twc acquired Man of Tai Chi, which serves as the actor's directorial debut. The story, set in modern-day Beijing, follows a young martial artist (Tiger Hu Chen) who finds himself in the middle of a lucrative underground fight scene, where he must compromise his own morals to get out alive. Keanu Reeves co-stars alongside The Raid: Redemption's Iko Uwais and Jeremy Marinas. Here's what Keanu Reeves had to say about his first directorial effort landing at Radius-twc.
"I could not hope for a better home than Radius-twc for Man of Tai Chi. Their passion, understanding and support of the film is what a filmmaker wishes for in bringing their storytelling to the widest possible audience."
The Weinstein Company and its spinoff RADiUS-twc have been very busy scooping things up at the Cannes Film Festival and their latest acquisitions are two Keanu Reeves showcase films, as The Weinstein Company bought the rights to the long-in-development sci-fi film Passengers , co-starring Reese Witherspoon, while RADiUS-twc will distribute Keanu's directorial debut, the martial arts flick, The Man of Tai Chi . Written by Jon Spaihts ( Prometheus ), Passengers has been a long-time passion project for Reeves that was offered for pre-sale at Cannes. The plot involves a spacecraft transporting thousands of people to a distant colony planet that has a malfunction in one of its sleep chambers so that one passenger wakes up 90 years before anyone else. Lonely, he decides to wake up »

Exclusive: The Weinstein Company has won the bidding for the Keanu Reeves-Reese Witherspoon sci-fi romance movie Passengers. I’m hearing the distributor has committed to a multi-million dollar minimum guarantee and a P&A commitment in the $25 million range for a wide release in 2014. I understand FilmDistrict and Open Road were in the mix here in Cannes for the project, which was written by Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts and will be directed by Game Of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire helmer Brian Kirk in his major feature film debut. Wayfare Entertainment is financing and producing the pic. The plot: A spacecraft transporting thousands of people to a distant colony planet has a malfunction in one of its sleep chambers. As a result, a single passenger (Reeves) is awakened 90 years before anyone else. Faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, he eventually decides to wake up a »

Coming soon this fall from Fox: Everybody Hates Lindelof! To say writer Damon Lindelof divides movie fans is a bit of an understatement. While he has won the support of many people because of his work on Star Trek, Prometheus and the television series Lost, those same projects have also earned Lindelf the scorn of countless fanboys. Recently Damon Lindelof defended the misdirection that was used in the marketing for Star Trek Into Darkness and now he's apologizing for a certain »

Damon Lindelof is on the interview circuit, mostly explaining what he did with Star Trek Into Darkness. Lost ended in 2006, and Lindelof is waiting to hear if HBO will pick up his Rapture series The Leftovers, which would throw him back into the grind of producing a television show. In the transition years, Lindelof has tackled a variety of sci-fi tentpoles: Star Trek, Cowboys & Aliens, Prometheus. The next is Tomorrowland, an intriguing project at Disney that Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) will direct. George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Raffey Cassidy are on board to star. Rumored plot details leaked in March. Lindelof didn't elaborate much on what was out there other than to say some of the public information is "completely and totally erroneous." But he did discuss the inspiration behind the project, how he wants to give Tomorrowland a story (the Pirates of the Caribbean treatment), and his fascination with Disney history. »

Disney’s Tomorrowland is among the more intriguing sci-fi movies due to arrive next year, and not only because it unites filmmaker Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) alongside Damon Lindelof (Prometheus) and Entertainment Weekly contributor Jeff Jensen as the screenwriters. If the rumored story details are correct, then the final film should be an imaginative change of pace from this year’s crop of dystopian and/or post-apocalyptic sci-fi blockbusters (Oblivion, After Earth, Elysium, etc.).
The eponymous Tomorowland is described as being a wondrous and technologically advanced realm that exists in another dimension. Bird’s film is rumored to revolve around a middle-aged man (George Clooney) who – to save the Earth – must set out and return to that fantasy land, after he was kicked out as a ...

Loved it or hated it, the fact remains that Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was a major film that set up the distinct possibility – probability, really – of at least one more sequel to tie up the many many loose ends. It has developed into a difficult slog to get Prometheus 2 off the ground, though, what with screenwriter Damon Lindelof leaving the whole script up in the air, and director Ridley Scott taking on other projects. But for those of you who desperately want to know what happens to Elizabeth Shaw and Michael Fassbender’s head-in-a-bag, good news! Ridley Scott has been chatting up a young actor about a supporting role in Prometheus 2.
