Ridley Scott Says Prometheus 2 Won't Feature Xenomorphs

24 September 2014 7:52 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

While promoting his "Exodus: Gods and Kings," director Ridley Scott spoke about the upcoming "Prometheus" sequel, confirming that xenomorphs won't be making an appearance. He said: "The beast is done. Cooked. I got lucky meeting H.R. Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it and I said, 'I want to do it, it's fantastic'. But after four [movies], I think it wears out a little bit. There's only so much snarling you can do. I think you've got to come back with something more interesting. And I think we've found the next step. I thought the Engineers were quite a good start." Scott went on to say that the script for "Prometheus 2" is currently being written. "Right now, as we speak, it's being written. I've had 15 drafts evolving. »

Ridley Scott says 'Prometheus 2' will be xenomorph-free: 'The beast is done'

24 September 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Were you hoping to see some xenomorphs pop up in "Prometheus 2"? Sorry to burst your bubble. “The beast is done. Cooked,” director Ridley Scott told Yahoo! News when asked whether the iconic alien monsters would be showing up in the planned sequel. “I got lucky meeting [xenomorph designer] H.R. Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it’s obscene. They didn’t want to do it and I said, ‘I want to do it, it’s fantastic’. But after four, I think it wears out a little bit. There’s only so much snarling you can do. I think you’ve got to come back with something more interesting. And I think we’ve found the next step. I thought the Engineers were quite a good start.” As anyone who's seen "Prometheus" knows, »

No Xenomorphs To Appear In "Prometheus 2"

24 September 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Still upset that the "Alien" prequel "Prometheus" didn't show any of the original xenomorphs? Don't expect the upcoming sequel to be any more enlightening.

Ridley Scott, who directed "Prometheus" and is slated to helm the follow-up once he wraps "The Martian," tells Yahoo UK that the upcoming "Prometheus" sequel will not include any of the acid-dripping beasties:

"The beast is done. Cooked. I got lucky meeting H.R. Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it and I said, 'I want to do it, it's fantastic'

Ridley Scott Gives New Details On 'Prometheus' And 'Blade Runner' Sequels

24 September 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ridley Scott freely gave some updates on two of his anticipated sequels, Prometheus 2 and Blade Runner 2. The new details aren't anything out of this world, but at the very least they offer some hope/evidence that Scott is still working on them.

Though neither of said sequels will be Scott's next film – that'll be The Martian, starring Matt Damon – Scott revealed that Prometheus 2 is being written "as we speak."

"I've had 15 drafts evolving. I definitely want to do that again because I really enjoyed doing Prometheus."

(I sense a slight bit of doubt in his tone, but that might just be me losing hope. What do you guys think?) Scott also talked about the reaction to Prometheus and the aliens:

“The beast is done. Cooked,” he says simply. “I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to »

'Prometheus 2' Will Not Feature Classic 'Alien' Xenomorphs

24 September 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Those disappointed that Prometheus didn't feature the original Xenomorphs from the classic sci-fi horror thriller Alien aren't going to be any happier with the upcoming sequel Prometheus 2. Director Ridley Scott has officially stated that the legendary monsters won't be making in appearance in his follow-up.

Speaking with Yahoo UK in anticipation of his upcoming period epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, Ridley Scott made it clear that he is done using this particular acid-spewing extraterrestrial:

"The beast is done. Cooked. I got lucky meeting H.R. Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it and I said, 'I want to do it, it's fantastic'. But after four (he has conveniently forgotten the 'AvP' movies), I think it wears out a little bit. There's only »

‘Prometheus 2′ Script Update; Ridley Scott Says No More Xenomorphs

24 September 2014 2:31 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Ridley Scott, at this point in time, is far along into pre-production on the Matt Damon-headlined Mars survival adventure The Martian (preparing for release in fall 2015), and has screenplays for both Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2 being cooked up. Scott most recently said he expects to begin shooting the Blade Runner sequel after he finishes The Martian, but that doesn’t mean the Prometheus followup has stopped moving forward.

On the contrary, Scott informed Yahoo! Movies UK that a Prometheus sequel is something that he’s very much looking forward to making – and thus, he is keeping the screenplay writing process chugging along at a steady pace.

“Right now, as we speak, it’s being written. I’ve had 15 ...

Xenomorphs Won't Be In Prometheus Sequel

24 September 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ridley Scott ("Matchstick Men") is working on sequels to Blade Runner and Prometheus. Though neither of them will be his next film, as he is currently working on The Martian. Once that film is complete he will then begin work on Blade Runner 2, which will feature the return of Harrison Ford. By the time Scott finally gets to Prometheus 2 I can't help but wonder how much interest will remain. And those that are interested, will they still be when they find out that the Xenomorphs aren't in it? “The beast is done. Cooked,” Ridley Scott says of the Xenomorphs “I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it’s obscene. They didn’t want to do it and I said, ‘I want to do it, it’s »

Ridley Scott Gives Updates on Blade Runner and Prometheus Sequels

24 September 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Ridley Scott is currently preparing to direct his two big sci-fi fi sequels, Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2. While speaking to Yahoo about his upcoming movie, Exodus: Gods and Kings, he also offered an update on the other two projects.

The last we heard on Blade Runner 2 was that the director said the script was "damn good," and that he would shoot the film when he's done with The Martian. Here's what he had to say in his most recent interview:

"It’s on the charts, can’t say when that would be yet, because of [Ford’s] thing with ‘Star Wars’. It’s a sequel – it’s what happens next. It’s quite surprisingly clever."

I like that he's excited about doing this sequel, and I really hope that it turns out as good as he is making it out to be. He went on to give a more detailed »

Ridley Scott Says You Won’t See Any Aliens In Prometheus 2

24 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Currently hard at work doing post-production on Exodus: Gods And Kings, the biblical epic starring Christian Bale, Ridley Scott’s probably not heading off afterwards to a remote tropical island for a much-needed vacation. Nope, there’s no time for that. His crowded slate is brimming with a ton of exciting projects – The Martian, Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2.

The first Prometheus, released in 2012 divided critics and fans on account of not being everything everyone wanted it to be! While there’s definitely moments that require deeper investigation to understand (the lack of brainpower in a couple of scientists), it’s not the disaster that so many xenomorph die-hards claim it is.

Speaking to Yahoo!, the British director gave an update on the status of the sequel to the Alien prequel. The most interesting tidbit negated rumours afloat since late last year, with regards to the status of the script. »

Soda takes The Goob for UK

24 September 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

British drama debuted at Venice Days.

Soda Pictures has acquired UK rights to The Goob, the debut feature from writer-director Guy Myhill.

The deal was negotiated between Soda Pictures’ MD Edward Fletcher and producers Mike Elliott and Lee Groombridge of Emu Films.

The cast includes Sean Harris (Prometheus), Sienna Guilleroy (Luther), Hannah Spearritt (Primeval) and newcomer Liam Walpole.

The coming-of-age story centres on 16-year-old Goob Taylor (Walpole) in Norfolk. He helps his mother run a transport cafe and harvests the surrounding pumpkin fields. But when she starts a relationship with a stock car driver (Harris), Goob becomes an unwelcome side thought. But when exotic pumpkin picker Eva arrives, Goob dreams of a better life, fuelled by her flirtatious comments.

The Goob received its world premiere last month in Venice. It is up for the Golden Hitchcock at the 25th Dinard British Film Festival and will feature in the First Feature Competition at the BFI London Film Festival »

This is the Part I Really Like: Top ten movie-in-movie moments

23 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Sometimes it’s just a joke, sometimes it has hidden meaning, and sometimes it’s simply the director showing off their eclectic taste in all things celluloid (read: Quentin Tarantino). But one thing’s for sure: the annals of cinema history are littered with movie-in-movie moments.

The granddaddy of movie-in-movie moments comes from The Shawshank Redemption – released twenty years ago today. So in honour of its anniversary, we thought we’d go all “meta” by looking back at ten of the most memorable movie-in-movie moments to grace the multiplex.

Gilda (1946) in The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Though it’s probably a little bit cruel to show prison inmates Rita Hayworth at her finest, this 40’s classic plays a prominent role in the film’s plot as Andy later uses a poster from the 1946 noir to cover the entrance to the tunnel that he’s painstakingly carved out of the prison walls.

Fargo Writer to Script a Universal Monster Movie

20 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The screenwriter of the amazing Fargo series on FX, Noah Hawley, is apparently writing one of Universal Picture's monster horror films. There are no details on which monster he'll be working on. In Deadline's report, it just says, “Hawley, while readying another season of Fargo, is separately scripting an untitled project at Universal that will be part of that studio’s classic monster franchise push.”

The studio is hoping to build a cinematic universe with these monsters. Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are currently developing a plan to relaunch the studio’s classic monsters starting with the Mummy, which Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) wrote for Kurtzman to direct. That movie will be released on June 24th, 2016. According to Kurtzman, some of the monsters will get their own movie, but other monsters will appear in other films, as secondary characters. They just need to figure out how to balance that out.

Matthew McConaughey explores icy planet in new poster for Interstellar

16 September 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

For the November issue of Empire, director Christopher Nolan helped pick out an image from his Interstellar for the cover. Apparently Nolan liked the picture quite a bit, because it's also the latest poster for his upcoming film. You can check out the poster and Empire cover below, and to me it looks like they could have been from Ridley Scott's Prometheus, although it's probably only because both were filmed in Iceland and involve astronauts.

The Essential Movies & TV to Stream This Week – September 15th 2014

15 September 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

First of all, something of an apology. I have been writing this column thinking that every single title due for release the following Monday would of course be released via some kind of pay to stream service. Of course it would, we are living in the future, and this is how things are done isn’t it?

Apparently not, last week I included Jeremy Saulnier’s much loved Blue Ruin in the pay to stream section and then it didn’t come out the way I thought it might. Turns out that some companies still have a fairly limited release pattern so Blue Ruin was released by channel 4’s DVD label and appeared on DVD and Blu but didn’t show up to stream on any of the major providers, not even Sky Store or Playstation Network.

So turns out that being a channel 4 release, you can of course rent »

Box Office: How Did 'No Good Deed' Beat 'Dolphin Tale 2'?

15 September 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

On paper, "Dolphin Tale 2" looked like a stronger box office contender than "No Good Deed." Star-filled, family-friendly, upbeat animal sequel playing on nearly 3,700 screens vs. grim, modest-budget thriller debuting on about 2,200 screens? No wonder pundits predicted an opening around $24 million for "Dolphin" and $17 million for "Deed."

And yet, when Sunday's estimates came in, it was "Deed" boasting a $24.5 million debut and the top slot, while "Dolphin" settled for second place with $16.6 million.

What's behind the upset? A look at how the two films matched up head-to-head in their various elements offers some clues.

Empty Marketplace. Both films were positioned to take advantage of the current box office doldrums. Sure, there were other family films and action movies/thrillers playing, but they were all several weeks old and vulnerable. That said, September is generally not a good time for a family-friendly release (even though the first "Dolphin Tale" opened well »

‘No Good Deed’ Uses Star Power, Social Media to Top Box Office

14 September 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star power and social media savvy propelled “No Good Deed” to the top of the box office this weekend.

The $13 million film nearly doubled its production budget in its first three days of release, pulling in an impressive $24.5 million. The home invasion thriller was able to trump box office predictions because Sony and Screen Gems, the companies behind the film, expertly deployed Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson on Twitter to hawk the story of a district attorney menaced by a killer.

“You have two terrific actors who have followings and this weekend showed their collective star power is very powerful,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak.

Both actors will likely see their stars rise as a result. Elba has had showy supporting roles in “Thor” and “Prometheus,” but hasn’t carried a film to these kind of heights on his own shoulders since 2009’s “Obsessed.” He retains »

Lambasted Elba and Henson Thriller Going Unpunished to Top Domestic Box Office Chart

14 September 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'No Good Deed' movie going unpunished to top weekend box office? (photo: Idris Elba in 'No Good Deed') Apologies for the bad wordplay above, but if Friday estimates are a reliable indicator, No Good Deed should indeed go unpunished to the top of the domestic box office this weekend, September 12-14, 2014. But why "unpunished"? Well, so far the Sam Miller-directed thriller starring four-time Emmy nominee Idris Elba (Luther) and Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) has a downright putrid 10% score and 2.6/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes' top critics. Sony Pictures, whose subsidiary ScreenGems is distributing No Good Deed, reportedly opted to skip late Thursday screenings to ensure that the film's plot twist would be kept under wraps. More likely, however, it was the critics' derisive remarks that Sony wanted under wraps. For instance: "The final plot twist »

Are There Clues To Prometheus 2 In This New Comic Book Series?

12 September 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With Scott talking regularly about shooting a sequel to Prometheus, we were curious as to what we might be able to glean about a second film.s direction from the new comic series. The short answer? Not as much as we.d hoped. Don.t despair, though. We.ve got a theory or two to share with you. If you.re not up to speed on the comic, Giant Freakin. Robot has a really great breakdown of the first issue. It features some spoilers, but if you.re not planning on grabbing the comics and are still curious as to what.s going on in »
