Ridley Scott Wants Alien: Covenant To Top The Alien Chestburster Scene

Ridley Scott Wants Alien: Covenant To Top The Alien Chestburster Scene
Ridley Scott revealed in a backstage interview at the Golden Globe Awards that he wants to make Alien: Covenant scarier than the original Alien film, which is bound to please film fans fed up with once gory franchises being watered down for PG-13 audiences. “I always remember walking down the edge [of the auditorium] in Saint Louis when we were previewing Alien,” Scott recalls. “I couldn’t sit through the film one more time. I walked down...

Ridley Scott In Negotiations To Direct Film Version Of The Prisoner
By hook or by crook Universal intends to send Ridley Scott to the Village. According to Deadline, the Alien/Blade Runner/The Martian director is in negotiations to helm a big screen adaptation of one of the greatest TV shows of all time – The Prisoner.

Ridley Scott Promises Lots Of Familiar Aliens In Alien: Covenant

Ridley Scott Promises Lots Of Familiar Aliens In Alien: Covenant
Disappointed with the lack of Giger-style aliens in Prometheus? Then have no fear. Or a lot of fear. Or something. It’s seems that the next film in Ridley Scott’s prequel series will justify the shift in naming from Prometheus 2 to Alien: Covenant (via Alien Paradise Lost and Operation: Piss Off Neill Blomkamp… erm, possibly). According to Ridley Scott in an interview with The Wrap, “We’ll have them all… Egg, face-hugger, chest-burster,...

Alien: Covenant will tell the story of the...

Michael Biehn Teases Neill Blomkamp’s Aliens Sequel
Whether it will ever happen is still unclear, but Niell (District 9) Blomkamp’s Alien sequel is still managing to create headlines. Now Michael Biehn, who played Hicks, one of the few survivors of James Cameron’s Aliens (1986) along with Ripley and Newt, has revealed a few titbits about what he knows about the proposed, but much-delayed sequel.

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... 

The Martian: The World Rallies Behind Rescue Mission

The Martian: The World Rallies Behind Rescue Mission
Not a clip from the new Ridley Scott-directed The Martian (which is being described all over the place as his best movie in ages) but an “in world” video – ie, it’s something you’d see if you were a character in the film. It features the world sending good will messages to stranded astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon). It’s called “Bring Him Home” but doesn’t feature Hugh Jackman bursting into song. Based on the best-selling novel...

Blade Runner 2 Director On His Hopes And Fears For The Sequel
The man with the poison chalice of helming Blade Runner 2, Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario), has admitted to Collider that initially he thought the idea of sequel to the SF classic was a bad idea: “When I heard that Ridley Scott wanted to do another movie in the Blade Runner universe, at first my reaction was that it’s a fantastic idea, but it may be a very bad idea. I’m among the hardcore fans of Blade Runner. Blade Runner is one of... 

Ridley Scott Teases Prometheus 2

Ridley Scott Teases Prometheus 2
Prometheus may not have been the triumphant return the the Alien franchise that everybody had hoped for from director Ridley Scott, but it’s impossible not to hold out hope that Prometheus 2 might not be a leaner, more successful movie. Especially now that Scott himself has confirmed at the Toronto International Film Festival that Michael Fassbender will be definitely returning as the android David, quite clearly one of the best things about the...
