8 April 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Prometheus 2: 10 Questions The Film Needs To Answer

8 April 2014 2:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

In space, no one can hear you scream. Well, unless it’s the collective groans of about a million Alien fans when promised prequel Prometheus delivered itself to the cinema, only to tell a 99% standalone story told practically adjacent to the mythos and story of the ill-fated Nostromo. That sound was practically heard in every part of the cosmos.

Ridley Scott, a talented director, broke ground with the claustrophobic space thriller Alien that introduced body horror and Cthulu-esque terror to a whole new generation, and delighted fans around the world when he announced new film Prometheus would deal with the story before his previous effort. Not everyone was satisfied, expecting Scott to pull out all the stops to craft a dark, thrilling prologue that upon its finale would lead directly into the events that preceded Alien.

Not every question was answered – far from it – but a larger, »

She also has several very exciting upcoming projects, like The Drop, Child 44 and of course, Prometheus 2, to look forward to.

Universal Plots "Battlestar Galactica" Reboot

7 April 2014 10:07 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The long in development cinematic reboot "Battlestar Galactica" franchise has picked up steam with "Transcendence" scribe Jack Paglen having signed on to write the screenplay.

Universal Pictures is planning a "complete reimagining of the story" for the upcoming movie, which means Paglen is likely starting over from scratch.

Filmmaker Bryan Singer was attached to direct a 'Galactica' film back in 2009 but the new report makes no mention of his involvement. Original series creator Glen Larson does remain onboard as producer.

This would mark the third version of the story about the last of humanity of the Twelve Colonies escaping the robot Cylons and searching for their mythical ancient homeland of Earth.

The story originated with the late 1970s series and became an acclaimed mini-series and four season series for Syfy which ran from 2003 to 2009.

Paglen is also committed to Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" sequel at Fox which begins production this fall. »

7 April 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

How excited you are for HBO’s upcoming series The Leftovers probably depends on how much you like Damon Lindelof. The Lost co-creator and showrunner has had a hand in several high profile genre projects since his pop culture phenomenon ended, deciding to take his talents to the big screen for films like Star Trek, Cowboys & Aliens, and PrometheusThe Leftovers marks his much-anticipated return to television though, and audiences are definitely curious about it.

The series debuts on June 15th and focuses on those in a suburban community who are left behind after the Rapture summons 2% of the world’s population to heaven. It’s an intriguing supernatural premise that offers opportunities for some great character-driven drama (and plenty of twists and turns), so Lindelof should feel right at home with the material.

Tom Hardy Teams with Ridley Scott for Taboo

7 April 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Tom Hardy will produce and star in a new series for BBC One called Taboo. The series was created by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Peaky Blinders) and will be produced by Ridley Scott (Prometheus, Blade Runner). Taboo follows a “rogue adventurer” who sets out to build his family’s failing business into a trade empire all his own. It is set during the war of 1812. Hardy will, of course, play the rogue. He released this scintillating statement.

“We're creating a flagship British drama for this generation, a hybrid of orthodox and unconventional story telling, packed with darkness and spirited characters. I think Steve Knight and Ridley Scott are the perfect partners and the BBC the perfect home for this hugely exciting and compelling project.”

This project is a bit of a reunion for Hardy, as he has worked with Knight and Scott before. He recently finished Child 44, which Scott produced, »

Watch: First Teaser for Damon Lindelof's 'The Leftovers' Asks You To Consider the Two Percent

7 April 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Damon Lindelof. Few names can illicit such heated, varying responses right off the cuff, but the creator of "Lost" and co-writer of "Prometheus" is certainly one of them. Now the beloved or loathed lover of twists is returning to television with "The Leftovers," a new HBO drama about two percent of the population disappearing in an instant. The teaser below calmly establishes the magnitude of that number before cutting to a baby disappearing from a carseat, shocking and terrifying the mother while putting us in an immediate state of unease. Followed up with quick cuts of various survivors coping with loss, including the show's lead Justin Theroux screaming in the deep end of a pool, "The Leftovers" looks as dark and intriguing as Lindelof's past work. Here's hoping it unites audiences instead of only, say, two percent.

However you feel about the way writer/producer Damon Lindelof handled the endings of "Lost" and "Prometheus," one thing he's undeniably good at is setting up projects with captivating hooks and (at least initially) engrossing mysteries.

Your thoughts about "Lost," "Prometheus" and "Cowboys & Aliens" (among others) may influence how you feel about writer/producer Damon Lindelof, equally successful and controversial given his contributions to a variety of high-profile projects. His next gig finds him returning to the world of episodic television, this time on HBO with "The Leftovers," another supernatural story with an intriguing premise. One of our 20 Most Anticipated TV Shows Of 2014, the show is based on the 2011 novel by Tom Perotta, focusing on those in a suburban community left behind after the Rapture summons most of humanity up to heaven (or did it?). As a concept for a show? Great stuff. It's hard not to be compelled by the material—and the cast is pretty solid too, with Justin Theroux in the lead and supporting players including Liv Tyler, Christopher Eccleston, Amy Brenneman, Michael Gaston and Ann Dowd. And hell, Peter Berg directed the pilot. »

Looking back at Alan Dean Foster's Alien novelisation

4 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 7 Apr 2014 - 07:06

As Alan Dean Foster's novelisation of Alien gets a 35th anniversary reissue, we take a look back at its intelligent rendering of the film...

Celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, Ridley Scott's Alien remains a timeless exercise in atmosphere and suspense. The intervening years may have diminished the impact of its bloodiest moments, but the air of astral coldness is still as potent as it ever was.

Alan Dean Foster's Alien novelisation succeeds in capturing that same chilly essence - quite a feat, given that the author wrote the book in just three weeks, with what appears to be an early draft of the screenplay, and without having seen a photograph of the title creature.

Novelisations essentially a marketing tool - released around the same time as the films on which they're based, they're written quickly and bundled onto bookshop shelves without much fanfare. »

First trailer for The Drop starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini

2 April 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, the first images from James Gandolfini’s (The Sopranos, Enough Said) final feature The Drop debuted and we now have the trailer, which you can check out below.

Previously titled Animal Rescue, the film follows Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) as an ex-con trying to go straight by working at a bar which serves as a drop point for money attached to what we can presume are gangsters. Gandolfini stars an older criminal who is having a hard time going straight, while Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) also features in the cast.

When first announced, the film had a far different tone than to what the trailer shows but Tom Hardy is an almost incomparable screen presence and this looks set to continue his impressive run in form. Take a look...

The Drop opens September 19th. »
