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.

V.E. Schwab’s novel A Darker Shade of Magic is a thrilling story of magical journeys to alternate universes—there are four different versions of London, each with its own relationship to magical forces. We loved it. [Full disclosure: Schwab’s editor also worked on my own novel.] So it’s fantastic news that this book…
According to Deadline, Ridley Scott is in early negotiations to direct a movie-adaptation of the 60s TV show The Prisoner. This is a bad idea since A) Ridley Scott doesn’t have time for this, he has approximately four billion other projects already on his slate and B) The Prisoner needs to be left alone.
Ridley Scott’s latest entry in the Alien series has found its lead: Katherine Waterston, who was in Inherent Vice and Steve Jobs, and will soon star in the J.K. Rowling adaptation Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Tops among Ridley Scott’s best-loved movies are early entries Alien and Blade Runner. His varied career has also included Thelma and Louise, Gladiator, The Martian, and that movie where Russell Crowe weathers his midlife crisis making wine in Provence.

Speaking at the AFI festival, Ridley Scott gave a very detailed description of what the opening of Blade Runner 2 will look like. It involves stew, a creepy tree, and Harrison Ford.
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.
First it was Prometheus 2, and then Alien: Paradise Lost. Now, Ridley Scott’s followup to Prometheus apparently has a new name: Alien: Covenant.
What do you do when you’re working on a sequel to a movie that was visually stunning but made heads explode to think about? You hire someone to rewrite it who has just finished doing that. Brace yourselves for John Logan’s version of Alien: Paradise Lost.
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.
Science fiction has rocked cinemas for a century, and the genre has produced many undisputed classics during that time. But which movies are essential viewing for anyone interested in the genre? We broke down the 50 must-watch science fiction films.
When you watch The Martian, obviously you know it’s a big visual effects film. But many of the effects themselves are not as obvious. Director Ridley Scott didn’t shoot on Mars (shocker!) so, to make where he did shoot look like the red planet required the kinds of effects you never really think of.
