What happened after Prometheus? How does that lead into Alien: Covenant? We won’t know for sure until the new film opens on May 19 but a new short film gives us a pretty good idea.
We’ve known for a while that Noomi Rapace would be reprising her role as Prometheus’ Liz Shaw in Covenant—but now a rather oblique piece of viral marketing seems to have dropped a big hint about her appearance in the film.
I wasn’t aware Rupture existed until about an hour ago. That’s when an email came into my inbox touting a tense scifi film with Noomi Rapace, Peter Stormare, Kerry Bishe, and Michael Chiklis, directed by the guy who made Secretary. Yup, I’ll click on that.
Ridley Scott’s last Alien film, Prometheus, ended with Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and the head of cyborg David (Michael Fassbender) flying off to continue the story. So it was a surprise when the sequel, Alien: Covenant, was announced and Fassbender, but not Rapace, was in the cast. Now it turns out she is.
Noomi Rapace is going to star in a new science fiction thriller called Boy. Despite having a profoundly dull name—which will also be completely ungoogleable—the movie actually sounds like it should be good.
Last week, director Ridley Scott let it slip that the sequel to Prometheus was now going to be called Alien: Covenant. 20th Century Fox made that official Monday morning with a new logo and, most curiously, a very confusing plot synopsis.
The dystopian movie What Happened to Monday, centered around a pack of illegal septuplets, just got its star. Noomi Rapace has joined the scifi drama set in a future where each family is only allowed one child, so naturally a family of septuplets is doomed.
You've seen our breakdown of the horrors that await the half-naked Noomi Rapace in the medical pod of Prometheus — now watch big parts of that scene get filmed in this behind-the-scenes look at Ridley Scott's movie. Plus there's plenty of new David action — and now we know why Charlize Theron is freaking out inside…
The first ever trailer for Sherlock Holmes 2 is delivering much of what we loved about the first, sassy banter between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, wacky steampunky hijinks, slow-mo everything and a sepia toned world. Plus check out Jared Harris as Professor Moriaty! Watch!
The Alien prequel is dead. But Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof are salvaging the script's carcass by reconstructing the original premise into a new film titled Prometheus. Noomi Rapace will still star, and "strands of Alien's DNA" will remain. [THR]
