No one argues that Alien and Aliens are the best films in the Alien franchise. It’s an objective, undisputed fact. After that, though, nothing is certain—is Alien 3 a good movie? How bad is Resurrection? Do the Alien vs. Predator movies count? Did you like Prometheus? The debates go on and on.
Fans of the long-running series might want to skip Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant. The director’s follow-up to Prometheus is not only disappointing, it somehow manages to make both films worse. It’s not a complete loss, though, thanks to talented stop-motion artist Serene Teh who made this amazing Alien:…
With Alien: Covenant coming out next week, lots of people have been discussing or revisiting the film that came before it: Prometheus. That even includes the director of both films, Ridley Scott, who admitted fan reaction to Prometheus influenced Covenant.
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.
Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant opens in May, and recently, he’s been showing off footage and talking about the franchise’s future. He made waves saying he’s already got a script for the next film, and even said there could be three more after that. Now, he may have slipped and let us know the title of that next Alien…
One of the things we know about Alien: Covenant is that Michael Fassbender is pulling double-duty in it. He’ll be playing David, the android from the last film, and Walter, another android from the same assembly line... or so we thought. The latest, utterly bizarre Alien: Covenant promo just ruined a bit of that…
If you’ve ever wondered why the performances of terror in the first Alien movie feel so real, here’s your answer: the actors had no idea what the hell was about to happen in Alien’s infamous chestburster scene.
Michael Fassbender has been talking quite a bit about what to expect in the upcoming sequel to Prometheus. Now, new pictures show that it’s going to be pretty terrifying.
We’ve gotten a few tidbits about what to expect from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant. The (cryptic) plot summary’s been out for awhile, along with the cast list, including Katherine Waterston as the lead. And now Prometheus’ only returnee, Michael Fassbender, has offered up some details on the film’s…
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, bringing the celestial wonders of Saturn’s rings to a screen near you since 2004, has outdone itself once again with its recent portrait of Prometheus, a glittering beauty of a moon suspended in a ring of ice and dust.
Hoo boy. Ridley Scott has announced that Alien: Covenant isn’t the only Alien prequel he hasin the works. The director says he’s making two additional movies which will link up 2012’s Prometheus to the original Alien film, which he made in 1979.
First it was Prometheus 2, and then Alien: Paradise Lost. Now, Ridley Scott’s followup to Prometheus apparently has a new name: Alien: Covenant.
Last week, word broke that Neil Blomkamp’s Alien 5 was being put on hold due to ongoing work while Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2 is being developed. That’s a shame, but if Fox looks at what Marvel’s been doing, they can probably have their cake and eat it too.
Somehow, the news that Ridley Scott wants to make three Prometheus sequels is not the most ridiculous Prometheus news this week. Scott himself announced the sequel to the semi-Alien-prequel will now be named Alien: Paradise Lost—which is super-strange given that Scott literally said Prometheus 2 has nothing to do with…
When Ridley Scott’s Prometheus hit theaters, it was polarizing for a bunch of reasons. Some of the biggest were its connections to Alien, which created more questions than they answered.
Of the umpteen or so upcoming movies Ridley Scott has said he’s directing, it turns out that Prometheus 2 is at the top of the list. At the recent NASA/The Martian event, the director announced he is already currently scouting locations for the sequel, presumably for Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender’s severed head…
While the first Prometheus definitely opened the door to a sequel, very few walked out actually thinking it was going to happen. The 2012 film was a middling financial and critical success so though there was talk of a follow-up, it seemed likely the project would fade away and die. It has now risen from the dead.
In an editing exercise, film student Job Willins has taken Ridley Scott’s films Alien and Prometheus into a single film called Derelict. The end result is pretty good, and well worth watching.
