alien covenant wraps

Alien: Covenant, the the sixth film in the Alien series and the third time director Ridley Scott has helmed one of these movies, has officially wrapped filming and the official Alien Twitter account has shared a new photo from the set to prove it. Despite a pretty steady series of behind the scenes photos and little updates, this has been the rare major studio film to make it this far in the process with the vast majority of its secrets intact. Outside of a cast list, a basic synopsis, and a wild (and potentially spoilery) rumor about Katherine Waterston‘s character, we know precious little about Alien: Covenant.

So let’s just ponder this set photo, shall we?

Rules Don't Apply Trailer

It’s been 18 years since Warren Beatty was behind the camera with the political comedy Bulworth. Now he’s finally back in the director’s chair with a project that has been kicking around for a long time. Though the project has always been said to focus on Howard Hughes, the first trailer for the film shows that this is more of an ensemble romantic comedy.

Rules Don’t Apply follows the budding romance between a young aspiring actress (Lily Collins) and her married driver (Alden Ehrenreich) as they both have to deal with the eccentricities of the famous billionaire Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty), who employs them both.

aliens sequel details

While Sir Ridley Scott is currently shooting Alien: Covenant in Australia, Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien sequel remains on hold.

There was — and there probably still is — some doubt over whether the sequel will get made, but Weaver remains confident it’ll happen.

kingsman resurrection

Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2014, a wild reinvention of old school spy movie imagery that never spared the gore while ruthlessly satirizing just about anything remotely connected to modern politics and espionage. It’s a messy movie, but it’s the best kind of messy – it has so much on its plate and so many targets in its sights that it moves breathlessly from one bizarre idea to another.

And it had a high body count, with large swaths of the original cast not living to see the credits roll. And now, a long-simmering rumor associated with the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, has been seemingly confirmed: a certain dead character will somehow make it back for the sequel. This feels like the kind of reveal that will inevitably surface in a trailer, but proceed with caution and consider this a spoiler warning.

‘Gambit’ Aims to Shoot in Spring 2017

Gambit shoot date

We’re getting six major superhero movie releases in 2016 (DeadpoolBatman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeCaptain America: Civil WarX-Men: Apocalypse, and the upcoming Suicide Squad and Doctor Strange) but at one point we were going to get even more. Gambit was initially slated to open in fall 2016, only to hit a snag when original director Rupert Wyatt walked away. Although Doug Liman eventually signed on to replace him, production had to be delayed and Fox yanked the X-Men spinoff from its 2016 release calendar earlier this year.

Since then, we’ve heard next to nothing about the project, which still has Channing Tatum attached to play the Ragin’ Cajun. But expect that to change in the coming months. Producer Simon Kinberg has revealed that not only is Gambit still on, it’s aiming to start shooting in spring 2017.  Read More »

assassin's creed trailer

Justin Kurzel‘s Assassin’s Creed adaptation has a pretty killer cast to begin with, and making things even better is the fact that he’s giving us two Michael Fassbenders for the price of one. Well, sort of. Fassbender doesn’t seem to get a whole lot of scenes with himself, but he does play two different characters: modern-day man Callum Lynch, who discovers that he is descended from a long line of Assassins, and his ancestor Aguilar, who was one of said Assassins in 15th century Spain.

A new pair of photos gives us a look at both versions of Fassbender. And while their worlds and costume choices may be very very different, they both look ready to spring into action. Check ’em out after the jump.
