The lukewarm reaction to the veteran director's 'Alien' prequel leads 20th Century Fox to 'reassess' franchise plans.
Director of the 1982 original promises the sequel will answer the long-debated question "one way or the other."
Ridley Scott directs and Katherine Waterston stars in “Alien: Covenant”. “Alien: Covenant” is a science fiction horror film that’s the sixth in the “Alien” franchise and the second of the prequel movies.
The 'Alien: Covenant' director admits he made mistakes on 'Prometheus' and explains how he's attempting to make amends with the fans on the sequel.

It's the UK premiere of Ridley Scott's 'Alien: Covenant' tonight, and you can watch Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, and more walk the red carpet live here on Yahoo.
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.
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).
For all the special effects that go into a mega-budgeted space movie like The Martian, one setting that did not need to be digitally tricked out was the film’s Mars. That’s because the red hues of the Wadi Rum in the country of Jordan bear a striking resemblance to the fourth planet from the sun. “I added dust devils and skies, otherwise it was all real,” director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner) told Yahoo Movies about the film’s very practical location in the interview above. (“Dust devils” refer to the upward swirling busts or dust and matter common in deserts and also Mars, apparently.)
NASA’s announcement that a rover had discovered saltwater on Mars — and with it, potential life on the planet — surprised and delighted the general public on Monday morning. Filmmaker Ridley Scott, on the other hand, was nonplussed by the red planet revelation. The Martian stars Matt Damon as an astronaut/botanist who gets stranded on Mars, and has to find a way to survive on the barren planet for up to four years — a seemingly impossible feat that requires him to manufacture his own water supply by splitting and fusing elements in his lab. Scott and his screenwriter Drew Goddard worked closely with NASA to make the film’s science as realistic as possible, though the space agency couldn’t answer all their questions.
Prometheus wasn’t a bad movie, not by any stretch, but it clearly left a bad aftertaste in the mouths of many of sci-fi maestro Ridley Scott’s most ardent fans. The Martian is also light years less jumbled than last year’s divisive space epic, Interstellar, with all its black holes and mystical bookshelves. At its core, The Martian is a crowdpleaser, delightfully retro and reminiscent of ‘90s sci-fi blockbusters like Apollo 13, Deep Impact, and Armageddon in its devotion to convention and accessibility (yes, that’s meant as a compliment).
