First look at Katherine Waterston in ‘Alien: Covenant’

26 May 2016 11:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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. Some set photos have been popping up online via various outlets, but here we have our first ‘official’ look at one of the series’ new stars, Katherine Waterston, who we last saw in Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs.

The image, which you can see below, was actually from an image on a monitor, but you can clearly see Waterston’s new female lead.

Here’s the plot.

Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PrometheusAlien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, »

Katherine Waterston’s Character Teased in New Alien: Covenant Photo

26 May 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

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. The photo is accompanied with the caption, “Nowhere to run. #AlienCovenant #Daniels”. This is the second official look at the film, following the teaser image of a Covenant crew member’s patch that was revealed on Alien Day.

A follow-up to 2012’s Prometheus and the second of three planned prequel films, Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant is scheduled to hit theaters on August 4th, 2017.

In addition to Waterston (Inherent Vice), the cast for Alien: Covenant includes Michael Fassbender (reprising his role as the synthetic David from Prometheus), Demián Bichir (The Bridge), Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down), Amy Seimetz (The Sacrament, »

First look at Katherine Waterston in Alien: Covenant behind-the-scenes image

26 May 2016 7:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the weekend we brought you some set photos from Alien: Covenant featuring an “extraterrestrial massacre” [see here], and now the social media platforms for Ridley Scott’s latest foray into the world of the Alien franchise have revealed a new behind-the-scenes images from the film, which gives us our first look at Katherine Waterston as Daniels…

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.

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...

Mel Gibson Stars As A Vengeful Patriarch In Trailer For Old-School Actioner Blood Father

4 April 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Barring minor roles in both Machete Kills and action sequel The Expendables 3, it’s going on half a decade since we last saw Mel Gibson headline a feature film. That’s all about to change with the release of Blood Father later in 2016, an old-school thriller that has Gibson assume the role of a vengeful patriarch known as John Link.

An ex-convict seeking redemption – stop us if you’ve heard this one before – Blood Father pulls Gibson’s grizzled lead back into the thick of the action when he is tasked with protecting his estranged daughter (Erin Moriarty) from a deadly drug ring. It’s all very familiar territory. Take the espionage thriller beats of Taken and swap out a European city setting with the sun-kissed desert outback (Mad Max?) and you’ll begin to get a sense of the film’s trite genre tendencies.

Exclusive Blu-ray Interview: Talking 'The Hateful Eight' with Demián Bichir

31 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Demián Bichir may not be a household name, but he's an actor that's definitely started to make his impact on Hollywood. Starting out in telenovelas in Mexico in the 1980s, the actor slowly transitioned into Hollywood with films like 2001's In The Time Of The Butterflies and 2008's Che, where he played Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

More recently he's starred in such films as SavagesThe Heat, and, perhaps most notably, Machete Kills, a film that eventually led to his being cast in Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight, as is discussed in the discussion below.

In a phone interview, Kellvin talks in-depth about the acting process with Tarantino, as well as Bichir's upcoming role in Alien: Covenant.

If you'd like to hear an audio version of the interview, you can listen to the one of our recent podcast episodes below! The interview begins around 01:39:11 into the episode.

'The Hateful Eight' Interview with Demian Bichir | Exclusive

25 March 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With a filmography that spans nearly 40 years, Demi&#225n Bichir has had more than his fair share of ups and downs throughout his career. In the mid-80s, he moved to New York and then Los Angeles to pursue his craft, but he was eventually drawn back to Mexico, where he became one of his home country's biggest box office stars. He won an Ariel Award, the Mexican equivalent of an Oscar, for his role in 'Til Death in 1994, and his 1999 blockbuster Sex, Shame and Tears became the highest-grossing movie in the country's history. While he was a bona fide star in Mexico, he would only gain the attention of American audiences nearly a decade later

His portrayal of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 2008's Che (Part 1) and Che (Part 2) helped put Demi&#225n Bichir on one Hollywood map, as well as his portrayal of Tijuana mayor/drug kingpin Esteban Reyes on Showtime's Weeds. »
