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.
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with the latest chapter in the Alien franchise, Alien: Covenant . The new trailer for the upcoming 20th Century Fox sci-fi thriller lets audiences know that “the path to paradise begins in hell,” and begins with Katherine Waterston and the crew aboard the colony ship, Covenant.” As the team explores undiscovered territory, danger and extraterrestrial species – including Xenomorphs – lurk all around. The sequel to Prometheus …
Santa has just dropped off a little extra something for film fans: The first trailer for Alien: Covenant. Ridley Scott’s sequel to 2012’s Prometheus arrived at midnight on Christmas Eve, picking up with a new crew, who intend to build a colony on an uninhabited planet… or at least, they think it’s uninhabited. Michael Fassbender returns in two separate roles, one of which is Prometheus android David (whose character was the high point of that film).
It’s no secret that ‘Prometheus’ made a major leap from Ridley Scott’s original ‘Alien’ movies… and by the end of the movie, we saw a vastly different xenomorph to those of the original film series. According to Birth.Movies.Death, a new video which appeared on the Alien Anthology Twitter account may give us some clues about the new xenomorph. Of course, the account has previously released a number of behind-the-scenes images from the upcoming ‘Alien’ movie… and now it looks as though it’s given us our first glimpse at the new xenomorph.
Ridley Scott has come a-cropper on the Australian set of ‘Alien: Covenant’, following a run-in with a forklift truck. “But Ridley took it like a man, apologises and said it was his fault and just got on with it.
Someone’s sewn Michael Fassbender’s head back on, then. A new snap from the set of ‘Prometheus’ sequel 'Alien Covenant’ finds the Irish actor rapt as director Ridley Scott gives a pep talk to the cast and crew.
Ryan Gosling can’t wait to get started on ‘Blade Runner 2’. During an interview with IGN, the 35-year-old ‘Blade Runner 2’ star revealed why he’s personally excited to see the sci-fi classic return to the big screen. During an interview with Gizmodo UK, original ‘Blade Runner’ star Rutger Hauer – who played the iconic replicant Roy Batty – sounded less than impressed with the thought of a sequel.
With Ridley Scott at work on his ‘Prometheus’ sequel/’Alien’ prequel, ‘Alien: Covenant,’ there have been questions asked about the ‘Alien’ movie which Neill Blomkamp is lined up to direct. Blomkamp’s would-be sequel is a revisionist film, which would follow on directly from James Cameron’s ‘Aliens,’ disregarding ‘Alien³’ and ‘Alien: Resurrection’ altogether. Famously, the ‘District 9’ and ‘Elysium’ director - who met ‘Alien’ series star Sigourney Weaver on his last film, ‘Chappie’ - released his concept art for the film online in 2015, after studio 20th Century Fox initially turned it down.
If you’ve been looking forward to the return of 20th Century Fox’s two iconic extra-terrestrial monsters, now we know when you’ll be seeing them next. Director Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ sequel/’Alien’ prequel ‘Alien: Covenant’ had originally been set to hit cinemas in October 2017. There’s no word yet on whether this will also mean a change to ‘Alien: Covenant’s scheduled UK release date of 6 October 2017.
Danny McBride is reportedly in talks to join ‘Alien: Covenant’. According to The Wrap, the 39-year-old American actor is being courted for a role in Ridley Scott’s upcoming ‘Prometheus’ sequel, ‘Alien: Covenant’.
As ‘Alien: Covenant’ edges closers, its director Sir Ridley Scott is gradually revealing more and more about the hugely anticipated follow up to 2012′s ‘Prometheus’. The latest piece of info comes in a recent interview with the Daily Mail, where Scott talks frankly about the first film’s star Noomi Rapace. Presumably he’s talking about the female lead, as it’s believed that Michael Fassbender - arguably the best thing about ‘Prometheus’ - will return to the series as David.
Made the mistake of doing it twice — three times. ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ is okay. Director Jonathan Demme’s film, based on Thomas Harris’s novel, went on to sweep the board at the Oscars, with best lead performance awards for both Jodie Foster and Hopkins - despite Hopkins having under 25 minutes of screen time.
If any of us were so foolish to imagine Ridley Scott might start slowing down a bit as he draws ever closer to his 80s, we would be sorely mistaken.
Director Ridley Scott is talking up his next ‘Alien’ movie again, promising that the iconic creations of the first film will be making an appearance.
It’s been 30 years since Ridley Scott’s epic fantasy ‘Legend’ first hit UK cinema screens. In 1985, Ridley Scott badly needed a hit. After breaking through in a big way with his 1979 instant classic ‘Alien,’ the British director’s 1982 follow-up – another dark science fiction movie entitled ‘Blade Runner’ – had seen him at loggerheads with the studio over the final cut, and met a muted response at the box office.
Ridley Scott has confirmed that ‘Alien: Covenant’ will be the first of three films that will then link up to the story from the original 1979 'Alien’. The second movie in his 'Prometheus’ series is in its pre-production stage in Sydney, Australia, at the moment, where Scott confirmed the plans in a press conference. Covenant will tell the story of the crew of a colony ship which discovers what it believes to be an 'uncharted paradise’ world, but is in fact a 'dark and dangerous’ place, inhabited solely by David, Michael Fassbender’s android character from the first 'Prometheus’ movie.
Finally, Ryan Gosling has confirmed - with actual words and everything - that he’s going to be in ‘Blade Runner 2’. Rumours had placed him in a role in the long-awaited sequel, and Ridley Scott himself had even mumbled his name too. He would only add that the addition of Denis Villeneuve (helmsman of 'Sicario’) as director and legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins being involved in the movie helped to seal the deal. As Gosling says, there’s a great deal more to go on just yet, other than that Harrison Ford is on board too.
