It's no surprise that after working with Scott on the new Blade Runner reboot, Michael Green is officially on board to work on the rewrites for the untitled...

'Prometheus 2': Noomi Rapace Has Been In Script Talks With Ridley Scott

PROM-005 - Ridley Scott directs Noomi Rapace on the set of PROMETHEUS.
Prometheus—it was one of the most highly-anticipated films of 2012, seeing as how it was a Ridley Scott-directed prequel to his sci-fi horror classic, Alien.  In the end, it became one of the more controversial films of the year in terms of its reception, as the film—for the most part—fell far short of expectations and ended on a jarring and ambiguous...

While Ridley Scott should certainly carry his share of the blame for Prometheus’ massive—and we mean massive—flaws (a basic slasher film plot featuring a too-large cast in which only two or three have any actual characterization who variously to make a series of bad decisions and get killed, do drugs and get killed, or have sex and get killed; a barely-defined alien species that...

The Top 5 Horror Films of 2012
2012 provided us with a number of decent horror flicks. For so many years we were getting these awful horror movies, all suffering from the same sickness – cheap thrills and cliché endings. Paranormal Activity provided fans of the genre with something fresh and terrifying, but then that franchise fell into the same traps. The sequels, including the one we saw this year, failed to...

Box Office Predictions: Summarizin' The Summer

Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows
Though there are three wide releases this weekend, who cares? Summer's over. Labor Day weekend is here. So let's talk about the winners of the summer, and general trends. Cause that's fun. And you'll never guess who won the summer (Hint: it was The Avengers)

Damon Lindelof On 'Prometheus' and Marketing in the Digital Era

Even though it's only just August, the summer season is winding down, and we're able to take stock of what worked and what didn't. Ridley Scott's Prometheus was one of the big event films of the summer (at least for geeks), but only made $125 Million domestically. Screenwriter David Lindeloff talked to Wall Street Journal about the film and it's reception and its...

'Prometheus,' 'Ted,' And 'American Reunion' All Receiving Sequels

Published by

prometheus
While most films released this summer don’t really need a sequel (unless you count The Amazing Spider-Man, which needs a sequel simply for Sony to maintain rights to the franchise), Ridley Scott’s Prometheus may be one of the only films that could possibly be enriched a sequel to explain away some glaring plot holes/ character motivations/ muddled questions.  So...

Box Office Predictions: 'The Dark Knight Rises' All Right

Published by

bane and batman in the dark knight rises
So, it's finally here, and for many (or at least me) The Dark Knight Rises is the make or break movie of the summer. But even if it is truly great, it's been a pretty bad season for event films. The Avengers, and a number of the animated films were hits, making money and not just through international numbers. And pretty much everything else...

Box Office Roundup: 'Brave' Takes the Top

Published by

Brave
Though Brave may not have had the critical consensus of Pixar films in the past - films that often have nearly 100% Rotten Tomato ratings - that wasn't going to keep parents and children from one of the best brands in the business. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter didn't pass the sniff test, but may be okay as a smaller gamble. Check out the...

Box Office Predictions: It's Still a Pixar Movie

Brave
This weekend Brave and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter hit screens in one of the strangest summers seasons on record. Movies that cost over $100 Million (and much more) have been tanking with regularity. Will that effect these new releases?

Box Office Roundup: This is a Floppy Summer

Rock of Ages
Though we may yet see Brave do good business, basically everything that's opened since The Avengers has eaten curb, and that's a trend that's likely to continue until The Dark Knight Rises. It's possible a couple may see a profit through international, but this is one of the most pathetic summers on record and you can...

Box Office Predictions: It's the 80's All Over Again

Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages
Between Rock of Ages and That's My Boy, we've got a weekend of films that seem to use nostalgia as their main draw. "Hey remember when Adam Sandler would swear?" "Hey remember hair metal?" Then again, those of us who remember may not want to go back.

Noomi Rapace in Prometheus
Oh, for crying out loud—look, Prometheus, we get it: viral marketing is a fascinating tool that can expand the fictional universe in which a film takes place, and it’s a savvy way to advertise said film.  That said, Prometheus came very close to ratcheting things up to overkill levels with multiple viral ads; and now, despite the fact that Prometheus has already...

This is a strangely busy weekend for June. For the most part studios launch their biggest titles in May and July, while June and August don't normally hold the big powerhouses. But this weekend we've got a big prequel and sequel hitting screens, and at least one of them has an X-factor that means it could do much better than expected, or much worse (that is,...

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. ...
