A new poster for ‘Alien: Covenant’ gives us another terrifying glimpse at the iconic xenomorph… and it looks as though it’s on the prowl. Clutching her favourite space rifle as she hides from the slathering alien, Daniels (played by Katherine Waterston) is definitely channelling the Ellen Ripley look. Not bad, and it’s clearly intended to remind us that this is an ‘Alien’ movie following the ‘mixed’ critical responses to ‘Prometheus’.
New footage from Alien: Covenant shown by Ridley Scott at CinemaCon in Las Vegas links up the sequel with its predecessor Prometheus.
During an interview with Fandango, Ridley Scott revealed that there’s another ‘Alien’ movie to follow the upcoming ‘Alien: Covenant’. “There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] ‘Alien’,” said Scott as he explained the chronology of all the recent and upcoming ‘Alien’ movies.
One of the most controversial movies to come out of the Toronto International Film Festival is transgender horror ‘(re)Assignment’ which has been mauled critically. The film is about a male assassin (played by Rodriguez) named Frank Kitchen who, after killing the brother of a talented surgeon known as The Doctor (Weaver), is surgically transformed into a woman after being double-crossed by gangsters. It all sounds a bit absurd and potentially offensive, with the trans community voicing their disappointment in using the life-changing operation as a gimmick for a film.
