Top 5 Clichés Movie Reviewers Should Stop Using

Top 5 Clichés Movie Reviewers Should Stop Using
This feature does what it says on the tin… By Jayne Nelson Ever read a film review and felt like you’ve heard it before? That’s not surprising – many reviewers repeat the same phrases, tropes and irritations in their work until they’re as familiar as old boots.  We’ve decided to list the worst culprits here… while also acknowledging that yes, we’ve probably been guilty of some of these too. But we’ll try not to be from now on,... 

Ridley Scott Reveals Prometheus 2’s Title

Ridley Scott Reveals Prometheus 2’s Title
Just a few days (and a few press interviews for The Martian) after stating that it could take four Prometheus movies before the series brings audiences up to the events in Alien, director Ridley Scott has revealed in an interview that Prometheus 2 will be called Alien: Paradise Lost. Which strikes us as a little odd if we’re still possibly three movies away from Alien. Maybe after the decidedly underwhelming critical (and fan) reception given to... 

Ridley Scott Hints At Plans For Up To Three More Prometheus Movies

Ridley Scott Hints At Plans For Up To Three More Prometheus Movies
Seems like Ridley Scott has longterm plans for the Prometheus movie series, suggesting in an interview with German movie site FilmFutter that there could be up to three more Prometheus films before the story joins up with Alien continuity. “Yes,” says Scott when asked if Prometheus would ever directly lead into Alien, “but it won’t be in the next one. It will be in the one after this one or maybe even a fourth film before we get back into... 

Is Prometheus 2 Delaying Alien 5?

Is Prometheus 2 Delaying Alien 5?
Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2, which is scheduled to go into production in January 2016, could be delaying production on Neil Blomkamp’s Alien 5, according to sources talking to Bloody Disgusting. And it’s a situation that sounds plausible as Ridley Scott is producer on Alien 5 as well as director on Prometheus 2. According to the article, sources claim, “Alien 5 is still very much in the works, as Fox remains hot on the idea. Blomkamp continues...

20th Century Fox has officially closed a deal with District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp to lead a new addition to the Alien franchise. The news was confirmed by Blomkamp himself via Instagram, and follows a series of concept designs teased over recent months.

Alien Designer H. R. Giger Dies, Aged 74
A spokesperson from the Giger Museum in Gruyere has today announced the death of the artist and Oscar-winning designer H. R. Giger, from injuries sustained from a tragic accident at his Zurich home.  Perhaps best known for his work on Ridley Scott‘s Alien, the artist made cinema history in 1979 with his groundbreaking designs for the film’s set and Xenomorph creatures. Giger’s involvement in the film came about after Scott saw... 

Assassin’s Creed Movie announced

Assassin’s Creed Movie announced
It was a while back that Ubisoft funded and created Ubisoft Motion Pictures and although it has only now surfaced again to the light of day, it had never really strayed too far from gamers’ thoughts. Detailed in an exclusive to Variety magazine, Ubisoft Motion Pictures officially announced not only the production of an Assassin’s Creed movie but also that the sci-fi star Michael Faasbender (recently made famous by his roles in X-Men Origins and... 

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus Review

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus Review
Yesterday I grabbed the popcorn, double sized drink, decided to leave the 3D glasses and sat down to watch Prometheus at my local cinema. I’m not sure if I have been consciously putting it off because of the mixed reviews or if I was just unsure about Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien universe. To say that this is a prequel, I believe, is unfair. I would simply say it was set before Alien. In the same way that Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels...

The Avengers Assembles Opening Weekend Record at US Box Office!
Joss Whedon’s The Avengers has proven to be a fantastic start to the summer movie season, making US box office history by scoring the highest opening weekend EVER! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 broke the record back in July 2011 when it earned $169 million, but it could barely hold on to it for more than a year. This past weekend saw Potter’s wand smashed by Thor’s hammer after Marvel Studios’ The Avengers completely obliterated...
