“Everybody’s gone out of their mind. You’re not the only one, Max.” Moviegoers last saw Max Rockatansky roaming the desert wasteland in 1985, but longtime fans of director / writer George Miller’s apocalyptic road rage series will be reunited with the widowed wanderer in May of 2015, when Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters, and you can get a taste of the post-apocalyptic mayhem to come in the film’s new trailer.

While chatting to MTV about his new biblical epic Exodus: Gods And Kings, Sir Ridley Scott let a few story details slip about his planned sequel to Prometheus. It sounds as if David the android -- excuse me, artificial person -- (Michael Fassbender) will try to persuade Elizabeth (Noomi Rapace) to find a new body for his severed head at some point as they travel through space together. As you would! Another sci-fi sequel much longer in the making is Scott's Blade Runner follow up. The director talks a little about the design aspect, and claims Harrison Ford told him it's the best script he's ever read. Check out the video interview below, as Sir Ridley also has some choice words for his critics! Get More: Movie Trailers, Celebrity News »

In light of Sony Pictures’ recent hack attacks, studio production president Michael De Luca is acquiring a stream of new properties to counteract the effects of the leaks. This week alone the studio nabbed Passengers, the latest script from Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts and a NYPD documentary titled The Seven Five. The most intriguing addition to their upcoming slate, however, is this recently-announced project from J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production banner.
As reported by Deadline, the untitled sci-fi film was at the centre of a bidding frenzy between Sony, Lionsgate and Stx, until Sony beat out its competitors. Abrams and his Bad Robot team will produce the pic, with up-and-comer Chris Alender at the helm. The expectation is to introduce Alender – who at this point has crafted a handful of shorts – to bigger audiences as Abrams did with Matt Reeves via his 2008 monster flick. According to Deadline’s reporter, »

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings, out in cinemas in the Us this Friday, has come under fire from some critical voices due to the casting of the movie, where Egyptians are being portrayed by an all-white cast.
In the past Scott has openly defended the decision saying, “I can’t mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such. I’m just not going to get it financed.”
Now, at the New York Premiere of the movie, Christian Bale has also defended the movie, telling critics to “get a life”.
“No doubt it would have been a melting pot between Europe and the Middle East and North Africa,” Bale said when asked what »

With its focus on ancient times, religion, morals and big battle scenes, Exodus: Gods and Kings brings together a ton of classic Ridley Scott trademarks. Most of the following films have some element in common with the upcoming film. A few are just must-see classics; all are worth your time. Prometheus (2012) Despite the film’s many Alien-prequel elements, Prometheus is really a story about mankind’s search for God and what it looks like when...

Starring Christian Bale as Moses, Exodus: Gods and Kings marched into its first 10 foreign markets this weekend, grossing a pleasing $23 million as Hollywood once again tests the global appetite for biblical epics. The 20th Century Fox tentpole, directed by Ridley Scott, fared well in all. Some are heavily Catholic markets, including Mexico, where the film grossed $4.7 million. That was somewhat less than what Darren Aronofsky's Noah scored in its debut earlier this year ($5.7 million), but Exodus was 41 percent ahead of Scott's last film, Prometheus. Conversely, it came in 40 percent ahead of Noah

He's done dystopian and horror sci-fi, historical and Biblical epics, contemporary thrillers, fantasy, action, and comedy both light and dark. Yet one kind of film that director Ridley Scott has yet to tackle is also the most popular one at the box-office these days - a comic book adaptation.
Even as a producer, in which he has spread into even more genres, he has yet to be involved in any project based on a comic. Nor are they something too low-brow for him either, after all Scott just produced a digital series based on a video game franchise. Speaking with IGN, Scott has explained why it has not only not happened but isn't likely to happen either:
"I've had a lot of opportunities and I tend not to do that. They're the hardest single thing to write. Taking a comic strip character is very hard to write. Because comics are »

Some good news for a science fiction project we've been following for years, and hopefully this means it may happen. A spaceship script by Jon Spaihts (a talented writer of work on Prometheus, The Darkest Hour, The Black Hole, The Mummy remake, Doctor Strange) titled Passengers has found a new home at Sony Pictures, amidst all the chaos of the Hollywood studio's hacking this week, they did actually win a bidding war for the rights to develop and distribute. Deadline reports that Sony is picking up Passengers, with production president Michael De Luca, and producers Neal Moritz and Ori Marmur of Original Film plus Michael Maher of Start Media and Stephen Hamel of Company Films, producing. There's a few changes, too. The original version of the project had Keanu Reeves attached to star, and along the way bounced between studios like The Weinstein Company for the most time, with Focus Features »

20th Century Fox has released three clips and nearly 20 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings. The film is, of course, Scott’s take on the Bliblical story of Moses, with Christian Bale playing the former Egyptian prince and Joel Edgerton filling the role of the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses. If nothing else, the film certainly looks to be visually impressive, as Scott returns to the scale of his previous period epics like Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven. Check out the new Exodus: Gods and Kings clips and behind-the-scenes footage after the jump. The film also stars John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley. Exodus: Gods and Kings opens in theaters in 3D and 2D on December 12th.

Earlier this year, Focus Features had been in talks to acquire U.S. rights to “Passengers” with Keanu Reeves starring. “Passengers” went back on the market after the Weinstein Co. ditched the project after acquiring the rights with Reese Witherspoon attached; the actress later departed and was replaced by Rachel McAdams, who has also left the project.
Spaihts’ script is set on a spacecraft in the future with thousands of passengers making an interstellar voyage to a new planet. One passenger awakens from cryogenic sleep 90 years before anyone else, then awakens a female passenger.

For those of you not in the know, Strange, a neuroseurgon, becomes involved in the mystical arts and starts jumping into alternate dimensions after a career-ending car accident. On his off days, he’s also the Sorcerer Supreme, Earth’s protector against all mystical enemies. Fun stuff.
“Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity,” said Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios. “In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.”
Cumberbatch, perhaps best known for his role on BBC’s modern adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, has been enjoying a very envious, very busy career of late. He’s worked with J.J. Abrams, speechifying around a spaceship as Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness, »

After months of rumor and speculation on who would play the eccentric Marvel character Doctor Strange, it was revealed in late October that Marvel had their sights set on Benedict Cumberbatch for the role, though an official deal was never made. Until now. Marvel has announced that Cumberbatch will play the neurosurgeon turned sorcerer in the upcoming Doctor Strange film.
The second of Marvel’s Phase Three films, Doctor Strange is scheduled to hit theaters on November 4th, 2016. Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us from Evil) will direct off a screenplay by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), while Benedict Cumberbatch, of course, will star as Doctor Stephen Strange. We have the official press release (via Marvel) with full details on »

Marvel has confirmed rumors that Benedict Cumberbatch will play the title role in Marvel's Doctor Strange for director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) with a screenplay from Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). This casting was all but assumed, but Marvel slow-played the reveal as contracts most likely weren't signed when they did their big announcement back in October. The film will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. Doctor Strange arrives in theaters November 4, 2016. Next we have Ryan Reynolds who is apparently closing a deal to star in Deadpool, a spin-off from the 2009 summer hit X-Men Origins: Wolverine in which Reynolds starred as the wise-cracking mercenary. It was assumed he'd return after Fox set a February 12, 2016 release date, but nothing is confirmed until it's confirmed... rightc https://twitter.com/VancityReynolds/status/540594148097916928 yt id="LoXGsv9nsNs" width="500" »
