6 months agoEntertainment / Film : SlashFilm

Ridley Scott‘s last two movies, Prometheus and The Counselor, haven’t exactly supported his legendary status. The good news is, once you reach that status, it never goes away. So the director behind some of the best sci-fi and action films of all time continues to look ahead. His next movie will be the Biblical epic Exodus […]

‘Transcendence’ Scribe in Line to Script ‘Prometheus 2?

10 months agoEntertainment / Film : SlashFilm

Briefly: Do you want to see Prometheus 2? Personally, that’s a difficult question to answer. The ending of last year’s Ridley Scott film (warning: spoilers ahead) didn’t leave me hungry for more, but there’s still a framework there in which a good story could be told. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender would likely feature in [...]

‘Green Lantern’ Screenwriter to Rewrite ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel

11 months agoEntertainment / Film : SlashFilm

The notion of a Blade Runner sequel wasn’t something a lot of sci-fi fans wanted to think about even before Ridley Scott made Prometheus. And now that we have that semi-prequel to Alien to take into account, it seems more than ever that Blade Runner might be better left alone. The new film is happening, [...]

11 months agoEntertainment / Film : SlashFilm

Ridley Scott hasn’t even finished post-production on The Counselor yet, but Fox already has an eye on awards season for his next project. The studio has set a December 12, 2014 release for Scott’s Moses movie Exodus. That doesn’t leave Scott with a whole lot of room to do much else before jumping into Exodus [...]

Ridley Scott Producing ‘Child 44? With Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace

This week we spoke with Damon Lindelof about the sequel to Prometheus and, in the conversation, he mentioned that Ridley Scott was finishing The Counselor and had “Child 44 lined up right behind it.” That was an interesting statement, making it sound like Scott was directing the film. Scott is not directing the film, he’s producing, [...]

Exclusive: Damon Lindelof Explains the Unglamorous Truth Behind ‘Prometheus 2? Rumors

The end of Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus is just the beginning of a new story. As Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) flies up into space it’s obvious that the prequel (of sorts) to Alien has more ground to cover. Some of the film’s questions were answered by the time the credits rolled, but many were not. The unresolved [...]

Noomi Rapace Confirms ‘Prometheus 2? Script Is In The Works

One of 2012?s most bickered about films was Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus. We started the year debating whether or not it was an Alien film. By the time we saw the movie we debated if it was good or not. Now that it’s on Blu-ray, we’re debating if it’s worth revisiting. Two people who certainly think [...]

Read the Original Script For ‘Prometheus,’ and See Ridley Scott’s ‘I Am Legend’ Creature Tests

Once again, it’s time to tip my hat to Prometheus for having a particular longevity online. Whether you loved the film or hated it, or had very mixed emotions (perhaps relating to the beautiful cinematography versus the particular actions and motivations of the characters) there’s no question that Ridley Scott‘s vague Alien prequel remains a [...]

Gruesome, NSFW Concept Art From ‘Prometheus’ Reveals Chest Bursting Scene

Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus is now on Blu-ray and, with it, come hours and hours of behind the scenes footage and revelations. None of it has been incredibly enlightening – most of our burning questions about the film remain unanswered – but there’s still a ton of excellent content that’s being revealed. One such revelation was [...]

Ridley Scott Offers More Hints On Possible ‘Prometheus’ And ‘Blade Runner’ Sequels

The fate of a Prometheus sequel is likely being decided as we speak…on Blu-ray shelves nationwide. Ridley Scott‘s return to the Alien universe just came out on Blu-ray after its slightly disappointing U.S box office, grossing just over $126 million. When combined with its international take, though, the film was a moderate hit, grossing just over $400 million. [...]

Is ‘Prometheus’ Set in the ‘Blade Runner’ Universe?

The links between Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus and Alien are explicit. But an image that purports to be a screenshot from the bonus material on the steelbook edition of Prometheus makes a case for something bigger: the Alien films and Blade Runner being set in the same universe. The precise intent of the info in the [...]

Another big Blu-ray mystery has been solved this week.

Watch 10 Minutes of ‘Prometheus’ Deleted Scenes, See Several New Making-Of Images

A few weeks ago, rumors began to circulate that Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus would have over a half hour of deleted scenes, a majority of which would be from the controversial ending. 20th Century Fox never confirmed this and since, it seems increasingly likely that’s not the case. The latest rumor is that the disc will have just [...]

Three CGI Images From An Alternate Version of ‘Prometheus’ Action Scene

Want even more evidence that Ridley Scott created multiple variations of his Alien prequel, Prometheus? Several images have now come online that show a completely different version of one of the film’s major set pieces. In the theatrical version of the film, the scene was played with practical effects. However, the entire scene was also completed with [...]

Prometheus’ Blu-ray To Feature Nearly 15 Minutes Of Footage Deleted From Ending

Audiences walked out of Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus with numerous questions, many of which came from the opened ended nature of the ending. Reports and photos released after the film suggested a bunch of footage hit the cutting room floor and it seems that’s very much the case. A list of deleted scenes reportedly on the upcoming Blu-ray suggest 14 scenes [...]

Prometheus 2? Moving Forward, Perhaps Without Damon Lindelof; ‘Ted 2? Possible at Universal

Even before the release of Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus, which acts as a (rather distant) prequel to his 1979 film Alien, we’ve known the director and his screenwriters Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof had ideas for a sequel. Indeed, the end of Prometheus, not to give anything away, is open enough to a sequel that Scott [...]

LOL: ‘Prometheus’ Prequel Video Features Weyland Industries Scientist Training

Whether or not you liked Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus, you have to admit, the scientists in it were pretty crappy. They touch potentially hazardous foreign substances, interact with alien species, and poorly communicate with their crew. All in all, very dangerous stuff. A comedy troupe called Barely Political noticed that too and created what they’re calling a [...]

Trivia: Just What Did David Say to the Engineer in ‘Prometheus’?

On the grand list of Big Questions left by Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus, one item that probably falls somewhere down in the lower third is “what the hell did David say to the Engineer?” Well, we can’t tell you specifically what the black goo is, or what it has to do with the green goo, or [...]
