Fox is starting to kick it up a notch with promotional material for this coming May’s Alien: Covenant, having released a prologue to the Ridley Scott-directed sci-fi horror blockbuster. The clip offers a look at the mission and the new characters, and acts as a ‘Last Supper’ of sorts before everything naturally goes to hell. Check it out here…

Michelle Rodriguez Secretly Joined Alita: Battle Angel

22 February 2017 11:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production has been under way on the highly-anticipated Alita: Battle Angel for the past few months, with filming coming to an end last week. While a number of cast members were announced last year, there is one mystery role that hasn't been announced until today, with Michelle Rodriguez being cast as Gelda from the original manga by Yukito Kishiro. It remains to be seen how faithful this movie version of Gelda is to the source material, but in the original manga, Gelda was described as a "slim cyborg warrior."

Entertainment Weekly broke the news, although it remains unclear if there are other mystery characters that haven't been announced at this time. Michelle Rodriguez joins a cast that includes Rosa Salazar as the title character, alongside Christoph Waltz, Eiza Gonzalez, Jackie Earle Haley, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jennifer Connolly and Lana Condor. This project has been in development for several years, »

‘The Lodger’ DVD Review

8 February 2017 4:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Alexa PenaVega, Spencer Grammer, Kathryn Morris, Richard Riehle, Bryan Dechart | Written by Aaron Horwitz | Directed by Rob Margolies

Originally titled 2Br/1Ba, then retitled Roommate Wanted for its Us release, The Lodger - debuting here in the UK complete with cliched supermarket-friendly dark, brooding artwork which sells the film more as a straight up horror rather than the black comedy is really is (talk about mis-marketing) – is actually a loose remake of 2Ldk, the 2003 Japanese “film” (it only ran just over an hour) directed by Yukihiko Tsutsumi.

Interestingly, 2Ldk was actually made as part of a filmmmaking challenge called the “Duel Project”, which saw Tsutsumi go head to head with director Ryuhei Kitamura to make a film under strict criteria: The script can contain no more than 2-3 characters and must be shot, on a low budget, in seven days and can only take place in one setting. The most important rule? »

James Cameron on the Alien franchise and Alien: Covenant

29 January 2017 3:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week it was announced that James Cameron is returning to the Terminator series to “godfather” a reboot from Deadpool helmer Tim Miller, and now speaking to Vulture, the filmmaker has been chatting about the Alien franchise, and whether he has any interest in it going forward.

“The franchise has kind of wandered all over the map,” said Cameron. “Ridley Scott did the first film, and he inspired an entire generation of filmmakers and science-fiction fans with that one movie and there have been so many films that stylistically have derived from it, including my own Aliens, which was the legitimate sequel and, I think, the proper heir to his film. I sort of did it as a fanboy. I wanted to honor his film but also say what I needed to say. After that, I don’t take any responsibility.”

“I don’t think it’s worked out terribly well, »

New Alien: Covenant image released, Katherine Waterston acknowledges similarities between Daniels and Ripley

9 January 2017 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

USA Today recently shared a new image of Alien: Covenant star Katherine Waterston entrenched in battle.

Waterston also acknowledges the similarities between Daniels and original heroine Ripley, stating: “You don’t really know what you’re made of until you’re tested. They are both able to somehow think clearly in really shocking, unimaginable scenarios. It’s fun to play someone who can thrive in that chaos.”

Alien: Covenant to get a Vr experience

4 January 2017 11:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fans of the Alien franchise have even more reason to anticipate Alien: Covenant as director Ridley Scott is set to immerse audiences in a virtual reality game set in the latest film.

The Alien: Covenant Virtual Reality Experience will come to all major Vr platforms as a paid-for title for an as yet unknown date, though it can be assumed the game will be timed for or close to the film’s May 19th, 2017 release.

Ridley Scott is partnering with the Fox Innovation Lab to produce the game, but it will actually be his visual effects artist David Karlak who will direct the Vr experience. Fox Innovation has described the game as a “dread-inducing journey into the depths of the Alien universe” and that players will have to “navigate through horrifying alien environments and a story where every decision could mean the difference between life and death.”

Interview: Ridley Scott on revisiting the Alien franchise with Prometheus and Alien: Covenant

2 January 2017 4:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Speaking with us at the press junket for Taboo which airs this weekend on BBC One, director Ridley Scott opened up about what we can expect in Alien: Covenant and why he returned to the franchise he launched back in 1979.

“When I saw Alien finally succumb after four films, which was a good run, then they also did Alien vs. Predator, after which I thought, ‘Uh-oh, that’s it’ – then I waited a couple of years, I went back and decided to resurrect it,” he said. “No-one actually asked where [the aliens] came from in the three subsequent movies, which is kind of ridiculous. That’s why good writers are good writers, they’ll ask a basic question like that and make that into a scenario.”

Scott wanted to go back and really explore the origins of the xenomorphs, adding that, “We did Prometheus – that heaved it off the ground, and Covenant is a follow-through to Prometheus. »
