Danny McBride featured in new Alien: Covenant behind-the-scenes image

23 June 2016 4:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past couple of weeks Ridley Scott has given us a peek behind-the-scenes of Alien: Covenant with production photos featuring Katherine Waterston and Michael Fassbender, and now it’s the turn of Danny McBride, who is joined by the legendary director on what we presume is the Covenant spacecraft.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant is set for release on August 4th, »

Exclusive Interview with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

21 June 2016 11:24 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Robert Rodriguez interview

Movie director Robert Rodriguez is one of our favourites. His resume includes DesperadoSin City, The FacultySpy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror and Machete, and eclectic range of genre films that all hit the right spot.

Rodriguez is somewhat of a maverick film director. He’s not one to play by the expected rules of the movie world, be that in what he puts on the screen or how he interacts with his peers. During his career he has left both the screen writers and directors guild in favour of blazing his own path. His latest venture has been to create his own television network ‘El Rey’ which caters to a Latin American audience.

He used the platform to bring back a project from his past From Dusk Till Dawn; the film starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as brothers and criminal Seth and Richard Gecko. »

Noomi Rapace to return for Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant

21 June 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite previous reports suggesting otherwise, sources close to Deadline have now confirmed that Noomi Rapace will be reprising her role from 2012’s Prometheus as Elizabeth Shaw for 2017’s sequel, Alien: Covenant. According to the outlet, the actress is currently on the set of the film in Australia, where she will shoot “weeks worth of scenes.” The size of her role is unknown at the time.

Back in August 2012, when 20th Century Fox announced they’d be making a sequel due to the moderate success of Prometheus, Rapace was on board to come back. Earlier this year, however, fans were led to believe that Rapace wouldn’t make an appearance after director Ridley Scott (Alien) confirmed such news in an interview. That story was further cemented when the film’s ensemble was unveiled and she wasn’t listed among the many names.

Noomi Rapace to Appear in Alien: Covenant?

20 June 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Ever since the end credits rolled in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, viewers have been wondering if we’ll see more of Elizabeth Shaw on the big screen. But when Alien: Covenant, Scott’s sequel to his Alien prequel, was announced, actress Noomi Rapace was oddly absent from the gradually revealed cast. Until now.

Deadline reports that Rapace is on the Australian set of Alien: Covenant and is expected to “shoot weeks worth of scenes.” If Rapace is indeed back as Shaw, fans could finally see what happened after archeologist Elizabeth Shaw and the decapitated head of the android David (played by Michael Fassbender, who is already confirmed to co-star in Alien: Covenant), flew off the surface of Lv-223 in search of the Engineers’ home planet.

In addition to the aforementioned Fassbender (and potentially Rapace), the cast of Alien: Covenant includes Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice), Demián Bichir (The Bridge), Danny McBride »

Is Amber Heard’s Justice League Role In Jeopardy?

16 June 2016 6:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was confirmed a while back that Amber Heard had been cast as Mera in Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie, but a new report suggests Warner Bros. may be thinking about recasting the role for reasons relating the the actress’ recent domestic troubles with her soon-to-be ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

TMZ reports that Heard was told not to go to London for a costume fitting by producers because she wasn’t “camera ready.” Apparently, they feel that all the stress of her legal battles with Depp – not to mention the intense and invasive media scrutiny – has caused the Machete Kills star to drop 20 pounds, and she is now too thin to play the character. Plus, there’s a very good chance Heard is going to be too caught up in her upcoming court case to even find the time (not to mention the energy) to shoot the picture.

‘A Star Is Born’ Remake: Lady Gaga In Talks To Join Bradley Cooper’s Directorial Debut

16 June 2016 3:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Back in May, Deadline reported that talks emerged to have Lady Gaga star in Bradley Cooper’s remake of “A Star Is Born” for Warner Bros. At that time the singer had not committed to the project, but now it seems as if she is ready for her big-screen close up.

Gaga is now officially in negotiations to star opposite Cooper, who is set to make his directorial debut.

Based on William Wellman’s 1937 movie, the story centers on a movie star who helps an aspiring young actress as his own career is in a downward spiral. The film was remade in 1954 with Judy Garland and 1976 with Barbra Streisand, in what would be Gaga’s role.

The “Born This Way” singer was high on Cooper’s list of actresses after Beyoncé had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. »

Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender featured in new behind-the-scenes image from Alien: Covenant

16 June 2016 8:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The official social media channels for Alien: Covenant have debuted a new image from next year’s hotly-anticipated sci-fi, which sees director Ridley Scott joined by his returning Prometheus star Michael Fassbender. Check it out here…

See Also: Spoiler: Katherine Waterston’s Alien: Covenant character revealed

Fassbender certainly looks different than David did in Prometheus (his head is once again attached to a body, for a start), so could this be another android who is part of the Covenant crew? It’s looking likely from the above image.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction.

Ridley Scott is currently in Australia shooting the Prometheus sequel/ Alien prequel Alien: Covenant, a film which he and 20th Century Fox will release in August of next year.

With filming now underway in Australia on Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, a new photo from the film has been revealed, teasing Katherine Waterston’s character Daniels.

The photo (see below) comes from the official Alien Facebook page, and features Waterston as Daniels in the damaged hallway of what could be the spaceship Covenant.

Cannes Review: Mel Gibson is Officially a B-Movie Star With 'Blood Father'

21 May 2016 8:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At one point, Mel Gibson was supposed to cameo in "The Hangover Part II" as a tattoo artist, but his tarnished reputation quickly proved that he couldn't play for jokes. In "Blood Father," Gibson finally lands that role under different circumstances. As a rugged ex-alcoholic who drops his needle to zoom through the desert on a motorbike — taking down hordes of bad guys to protect his daughter — Gibson inherits a less-than-desirable mantle from the likes of Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris. The punishment for his sins is a cinematic purgatory of mediocre genre fare.  It's not the worst fate, but certainly a step down in terms of quality and innovation. Having anchored the 2012 shoot-'em-up "Get the Gringo" and delivered bit parts in "Machete Kills" and "Expendables 3," Gibson now solidifies his new stature as a B-movie star, fated to anchor discardable material readymade for the bottom-of-the-barrel VOD »

Marko Zaror Joins From Dusk Till Dawn

28 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

It would appear that From Dusk Till Dawn series creator Robert Rodriguez and Chilean martial artist Marko Zaror have got a little bromance going on and, really, who can blame them? After first using Zaror for a key supporting part in Machete Kills Rodriguez quickly brought him back to fight Michelle Rodriguez in a music video he directed for Demi Lovato and now Twitch has learned that Zaror has joined the cast From Dusk Till Dawn for the upcoming third season. While we don't really know anything about overall storyline what we do know is that Zaror's character is an Aztec jaguar warrior and that it will be a recurring part. So we can safely assume that there will be many asses kicked in the...
