Prometheus: Movie Review

Published by

One can walk a very fine line between having a movie be a prequel or it's own original piece. At the same time, if you're watching a movie you don't want to be constantly guessing over whether or not it has any connection to the filmmaker's previous flicks. With Ridley Scott's Prometheus, a lot of fans were under the impression that not only is he going back to his...

Prometheus ship
With a week and a half left before the film’s U.S. premiere, Prometheus just can’t help but release yet another featurette on the film, this time concerning the titular spacecraft that gives the movie its name.  Featuring about a minute of all-new (and, admittedly, pretty cool) footage, the featurette tells us a lot about the ship and the technology of the fictional year 2089. ...

Even The Posters For 'Prometheus' Are Spoiler-Heavy Now

Published by

Prometheus International Poster header
Until very recently, part of the fun of Prometheus’ ad campaign was just how ambiguous the marketing was for Ridley Scott’s semi-prequel to his 1979 classic, Alien.  Was it a true prequel?  Would it connect directly to the beginnings of Alien?  And so on.  And then, unfortunately, came the spoilers.  In April, we received a three-minute trailer of pure...

Prometheus may be R rated, but it's gunning to be one of the big event films of the summer, and the advertising and viral videos are now hitting the frequency of Avengers material. Perhaps it's a winning strategy. The latest from the Prometheus cast and crew concerns extra terrestrials. An interesting word...

Latest 'Prometheus' Featurette Reveals Even More

Published by

Charlize Theron and Idris Elba in 'Prometheus'
For a while there you could say that Ridley Scott's Prometheus was playing cute. It was embracing one of J.J. Abrams's favorite marketing schemes - the puzzle box - where part of the fun was not knowing what the film exactly was until you got into the theater. That game plan has been modified for marketing recently, and now we're getting a clearer sense of what the...

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is currently running neck and neck (or space helmet and bat-cowl, if you like) with The Dark Knight Rises for the title of Most Mysterious Action Film of Summer 2012.  More and more plot elements, both leaked and featured in the excellently spooky trailer, indicate that Prometheus is a full-on prequel to Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror...

Trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus

Published by

Prometheus
Quick of cut and huge of scale, the trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus ties the film into his 1979 film Alien in two distinct ways. One is the lettering that comes as we get quick flashes of cast members Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace and Idris Elba. The other is a certain prop that looks mighty familiar to fans of the...

Take a Better Look at Ridley Scott's Prometheus

Published by

Prometheus
Ridley Scott's Prometheus is and isn't a sequel/prequel to his 1979 film Alien. And though it may not feature Alien creatures as we know them from the previous installments, from the latest images to come from the film it's going to have the same look and feel that's for sure. The film is due out June, 8 2012, but the first wave of publicity...

Shame: Michael Fassbender
This week in theaters, Shame, the already multiple award-winning film, directed by Steve McQueen and starring Michael Fassbender hits theaters with a whole lot of sex, emotion and fine filmmaking.

Dangerous Method: Movie Review

Published by

Keria Knightley and Michael Fassbender in A Dangerous Method
The sex lives and interactions of Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) seems a ripe topic for David Cronenberg. It sets expectations that A Dangerous Method cannot meet. His film - adapted from the play by Christopher Hampton - rarely goes for some of the beautiful discomfort that one would expect from the old genre master. Instead you...

Viggo Mortensen in Dangerous Method
One of the great modern working relationships is Viggo Mortensen and David Cronenberg. A Dangerous Method is their third film together, and while Eastern Promises was solid but minor Cronenberg, this looks like the master in full-on kink mode. Mortensen plays Freud, while Michael Fassbender plays Carl Jung, who obviously gets in over his head...

After Wolverine, there was some hope that 20th Century Fox was going to steer their X-Men franchise into better hands when writer/director Matthew Vaughn took the helm for X-Men: First Class.

Jane Eyre: Movie Review

Published by

Director Cary Fukunaga attempts to punch up the romantic, period piece genre with his latest film Jane Eyre. The drama is made with a bit of horror, not something you normally would equate with a Charlotte Brontë 19th century novel, but it definitely makes the film appealing to not only the romantic film-goers but to those looking for something more. Find out what...
