‘Chris Cornell’ Attempts to Bring the Grunge Icon’s Musical Career Into Focus

‘Chris Cornell’ Attempts to Bring the Grunge Icon’s Musical Career Into Focus
Chris Cornell was an enigma. He could sound savage and tender at the same time. During his 52 years, he was grunge’s Golden God, a folky songsmith, a pop wailer and an easy-listening crooner. He possessed one of the most awe-inspiring voices of his generation, and possibly the greatest voice to emerge from grunge, and he could stretch it to work in any context. He even improbably made melisma sound cool in hard rock. Ultimately, there were many Chris Cornells. He could be looking California, feeling Minnesota or seeking a

Does Walking Dead Math Not Add Up? Did Last Ship Make Hearts Sink? Was Arrow Bombing a Dud? And More Qs!

Does Walking Dead Math Not Add Up? Did Last Ship Make Hearts Sink? Was Arrow Bombing a Dud? And More Qs!
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Last Ship, This Is Us, The Flash and S.W.A.T.!

1 | The CW is totally readying a Superman/Lois Lane series, isn’t it? (Or would that be awfully hard to do without treading much of the same ground Supergirl already has?)

2 | How has no one done a The Haunting of Full House spoof yet? They’re both Netflix shows, even! (Funny or Die, we’re looking at you.)

Here’s When The New Green Arrow May Be Unmasked

This season on Arrow, viewers have thus far had two major questions on their minds: when will Oliver Queen get out of prison and just who is the new Emerald Archer running around Star City? It looks like the former will occur soon enough during “The Slabside Redemption,” but we now have a pretty solid lead on the latter.

You see, we’ve known since last month of how an episode set to air this fall would be titled “Unmasked,” but today is the day we can tell you it’ll arrive on December 3rd. Not only that, but we have an official synopsis to go along with said confirmation:

Felicity Makes Certain Decisions For Her Family — Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) stands by her recent decisions regarding her family. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) continue to look into the Dante painting that Curtis (Echo Kellum) found.

Alien: Awakening Doesn't Have A Script Despite Recent Rumors

Alien: Awakening Doesn't Have A Script Despite Recent Rumors
It looks like recent information regarding Alien: Awakening may have been overstated a bit. We reported on some plot details contained in the alleged script for the planned follow-up to last year's Alien: Covenant, which would round out the prequel trilogy that Ridley Scott started with Prometheus back in 2012. However, according to a new report, that script doesn't even exist. At least not yet.

Unfortunately, for the time being, Ridley Scott and Fox are staying quiet, so this information needs to be treated with the appropriate amount of skepticism. That said, a new report states that John Logan, who had been tapped to write Alien: Awakening, hasn't actually written the movie yet. It's certainly possible that he and Scott have tossed some ideas back and forth and that they even have a treatment, but according to "a source who's certainly in a position to know," no screenplay for the movie currently exists.

Details on the planned Alien: Covenant sequel Alien: Awakening have emerged

Possible details for the sequel to Alien: Covenant have emerged, shedding light and what might be heading our way.

The Alien franchise is one of the most beloved, however, the future isn’t looking too bright for Ridley Scott’s film series in the aftermath of Alien: Covenant, a film which didn’t meet expectations at the box office.

Scott wants to make more films but at the moment the franchise is on hold. However, in an Empire Magazine Alien special (via HNEntertainment), details of Covenant‘s sequel, Alien: Awakening, have emerged. The film would have been written by John Logan. Empire reveals:

“Logan’s script would have seen the return of Prometheus‘ Engineers, with that species’ survivors coming after the genocidal David. Setting-wise, Scott said it was obvious, ‘We’re gonna actually go to the planet.’ By which we assume he means Lv-426.”

Sadly for fans of the series,

Alien: Awakening Details Emerge for Ridley Scott's Shelved Covenant Sequel

Alien: Awakening Details Emerge for Ridley Scott's Shelved Covenant Sequel
We have some new details regarding Alien: Awakening, the planned finale to Ridley Scott's trilogy of prequel movies in his franchise that started back in 2012 with Prometheus. Unfortunately for Ridley Scott, things have been put on hold ever since Alien: Covenant failed to meet expectations. Plus, with the Disney merger looming large, it seems less likely than ever that this movie will actually see the light of day. However, if this movie does somehow get made, it will tie the entire franchise together.

The new details come from Empire Magazine's special Alien issue. Apparently, John Logan, who previously worked with Ridley Scott on Gladiator and Alien: Covenant, penned a script that would see the Engineers return. They were first featured in Prometheus and, as we learned in the last movie, Michael Fassbender's David pretty much wiped them all out. But a few have survived and those who lived

David Returns: Plot Details Emerge About Ridley Scott’s Potential ‘Covenant’ Sequel ‘Alien: Awakening’

The ‘Alien’ franchise seems to be polarizing amongst film fans. You have those who believe that the series never was able to succeed after James Cameron’s “Aliens.” Those people tend to also despise Ridley Scott’s two most recent ‘Alien’ films, “Prometheus” and ‘Covenant.’ Then you have those fans that enjoy the series as a whole and have come to accept the director’s crazy vision for the ‘Alien’ prequels.

‘Alien: Awakening’: Plot Details Revealed for On-Hold Ridley Scott Sequel

‘Alien: Awakening’: Plot Details Revealed for On-Hold Ridley Scott Sequel
While the future of Ridley Scott’s “Alien” franchise on the big screen remains unclear, details about the intended next film, “Alien: Awakening,” are coming into focus. As part of Empire Magazine’s special “Alien” anniversary issue (via Av Club), the publication confirmed screenwriter John Logan, who co-wrote “Alien: Covenant” with Dante Harper, has already finished writing “Awakening” and the film is now waiting to be made. Empire even spilled the beans on the next sequel’s plot.

Following the events of “Covenant,” in which it was revealed the android David (Michael Fassbender) caused a genocide on the planet Paradise that wiped out the Engineer population, “Awakening” would find a group of Engineers who survived the mass murder making it their mission to exact revenge and kill David. The Engineers were first introduced in “Prometheus” and are humanity’s forerunners. The fight was expected to bring both parties to Lv-

New Details on Ridley Scott's Alien: Awakening Which Would Taken us to Lv-426

I’m not the biggest fan of Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel films Prometheus and Alien: Covenant. I know some people like them, which is cool, I just couldn’t stand how unbelievably stupid the characters were.

Scott definitely had plans for another sequel called Alien: Awakening and a script for it was written by John Logan. That sequel and the franchise in general is still in limbo. We don’t know if this next film will happen, and with the Disney and Fox merger officially closing next year, it’s a film that may never see the light of day.

Regardless, some new details have surfaced for the film and it would see Michael Fassbender‘s android David finding himself up against the Engineers on Lv-426, which is the moon where the Xenomorph was discovered in the first Alien film. Empire reports:

“Logan’s script would have seen the return of Prometheus’ Engineers,

‘Alien: Covenant’ Sequel Would See the Return of the Engineers—If It Gets Made

The future of the Alien franchise is in a state of flux at the moment, but Ridley Scott’s plans for the next movie—if it ever gets made—are quite interesting. Scott returned to the sci-fi genre and the franchise that launched his career with the 2012 prequel Prometheus, which spurred a bevy of hot takes but grossed over $400 million worldwide. That’s not bad for an R-rated sci-fi thriller about the meaning of life, so 20th Century Fox greenlit a follow-up with Scott returning. That film was 2017’s Alien: Covenant, a mixed …

‘Alien: Awakening’ Could Return to Alien Home World, If It Gets Made at All

‘Alien: Awakening’ Could Return to Alien Home World, If It Gets Made at All
The future of the Alien franchise is in doubt, mostly because audiences haven’t taken kindly to Ridley Scott‘s strange new direction started with Prometheus and followed with Alien: Covenant. But Scott was already planning an Alien: Covenant sequel, with Covenant writer John Logan handling the script. New details about Logan’s script, titled Alien: Awakening, have hatched.

Which Actress Is the Best Lisbeth Salander: Claire Foy, Rooney Mara, or Noomi Rapace?

  • Indiewire
Adapted from the fourth novel of the best-selling “Millennium” series — which David Lagercrantz continued after the death of original author Stieg Larsson — Fede Álvarez’s “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” is technically a (distant) sequel to David Fincher’s 2011 thriller, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” In reality, however, this new movie is nothing less (and nothing more) than a bonafide franchise reboot, as far removed from Fincher’s movie as Fincher’s movie was from the trilogy of Swedish films that director Niels Arden Oplev first made from Larsson’s books.

To recap: There are now three distinct film versions of hacker Lisbeth Salander, and “The Girl in the Spider Web” is her fifth on-screen adventure. In Oplev’s triptych, the feminist vigilante was played by “Prometheus” actress Noomi Rapace. In Fincher’s one and only stab at the series, she was recast with Rooney Mara. Now,

Idris Elba Voted People's Sexiest Man Alive 2018

Idris Elba Voted People's Sexiest Man Alive 2018
It's that time of year, everyone. That special time when one man is named the sexiest of them all by one publication, who passes out just such an honor on an annual basis. This year, it's Idris Elba who takes home the top prize as he's been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine. Elba beat out the likes of other men in Hollywood such as Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, Dwayne Johnson and many others to earn the title for 2018.

The 46-year-old actor has become increasingly prolific in recent years as one of the most in-demand and well-respected talents in the industry. His knack for drama, and even comedy when the situation calls for it, has made Idris Elba a standout and unique talent, who is apparently quite sexy as well. So what did Elba think when he found out about being bestowed with the title of Sexiest Man

Arrow Recap: A Tale of Two Felicitys

This week on The CW’s Arrow, Oliver was subject to the unexpected perils of Level Two, while Felicity and Dinah each found themselves forming surprising alliances. Meanwhile in the future, Roy and William returned to Star City — for better or for worse.

The Sins Of The Father

In perhaps the least compelling part of the episode, Oliver arrived on Slabside’s ominous Level Two, only to not meet Demon but instead be subject to the psychobabble of a Dr. Jarrett Parker. In a series of scenes that to me covered much of the same ground as his torturing by Prometheus,

Michael Chabon's Short Trek is a Thing of Optimistic Beauty

Kayti Burt Nov 20, 2018

Titled "Calypso," the mini-episode is set 1,000 years in the future and casts the eponymous starship itself as a main character.

While three of the four Short Treks follow characters we've already met on Star Trek: Discovery, "Calypso," the mini-episode written by novelist Michael Chabon (and writer on the upcoming Picard-centric Star Trek series) is a story entirely its own.

If you're looking for a connection between the ongoing series and these supplementary stories, look no further than the eponymous Discovery, the setting and one of two main characters in the 18-minute story about the blossoming of a friendship between the ship's AI and one man lost in space.

Aldis Hodge (Underground) stars as Craft, a castaway rescued by Discovery—or more accurately, by Zora, the AI of the starship, played by Annabelle Wallis (The Mummy

New Arrow Synopsis Teases Laurel Helping Oliver

To say Earth-2’s Laurel Lance is a complicated woman is an understatement. Having originally debuted during The Flash‘s second season, she naturally made her way over to Arrow during the following year, where she was responsible for giving Oliver Queen and company one headache after another.

But after allying herself with big bads like Prometheus and Ricardo Diaz, Black Siren eventually found redemption through her not-dad, Quentin Lance, and has pretty much reformed following his death. These days, she’s doing her best to live on the straight and narrow as Star City’s District Attorney.

Thankfully, the new Laurel in town will put her legal skills to good use in a couple of weeks when she seemingly does her best to get Ollie out of prison. At least, that’s the impression we’re being given by the official synopsis for “Due Process,” which we have right

China box office: 'The Nutcracker' dances to the top as ticket sales fall again

Decline is the worst since September 2014.

Ticket sales at the Chinese box office fell below the RMB500m ($72.67m) mark for the third week running, triggering the worst decline since September 2014.

The week from Oct 29 - Nov 4 saw the box office drop by 6.5% week-on-week. Additionally, the month of October has slumped by a massive 40% compared to the same period last year.

In such a quiet week, Disney’s live action fairytale The Nutcracker And The Four Realms easily topped the chart but with an underwhelming $11.7m from its first three days.

Why Netflix should green light Guillermo del Toro’s At the Mountains of Madness

Thomas Roach wants to see Netflix reviving Guillermo del Toro’s At the Mountains of Madness…

Just last week it was announced that Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio project has received the green lit from Netflix. Del Toro had been working on the stop motion adaptation for some time, before stating back in 2017 that it was no longer happening, only for the streaming service to offer it a reprieve.

Coming of this year’s Academy Award win for his film The Shape of Water, it appears that Del Toro may have more weight to get his projects greenlit from now on. Pinocchio is only one of several del Toro projects that has found itself stuck in development hell – the filmmaker has also spent many years trying to adapt the H.P. Lovecraft story At the Mountains of Madness.

Former Arrow Star Might Return For Elseworlds Crossover

When we first heard that Legends of Tomorrow was sitting out this year’s Arrowverse crossover, some were worried that it would mean the event would be lacking in the superhero department. Well, we can now safely say that’s not the case, as numerous faces both new and familiar will be featured in the crossover, which is titled “Elseworlds.” There’s Ruby Rose’s Bawoman, two versions of Superman, the debut of Lois Lane and a certain DC TV icon from the 1990s.

What’s more, Arrow star Stephen Amell is teasing that another face from the franchise’s past will be returning for “Elseworlds.” If you follow him on social media, you’ll have seen that he shared a photo of himself on Twitter yesterday alongside Colin Donnell Aka Tommy Merlyn, Oliver Queen’s best friend who was a regular on Arrow back in season 1 until the character’s untimely death.
