And now it looks like another familiar face will be making their way to the X-Men spinoff. Get details on the Logan cameo below, but be warned that the following information may be considered spoiler-y.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Photos: Everyone Looks Terrified

Alien Covenant - Jussie Smollett and Ridley Scott (BTS)

20th Century Fox’s Christmas present to the world this year was the Alien: Covenant trailer, and judging by the reactions, it’s exactly what fans were hoping would be waiting under their trees: a creepy, disgusting, flat-out terrifying return to form for the Alien franchise after the polarizing Prometheus. Even better, that trailer was just the start of it, as the Alien: Covenant marketing campaign is the gift that keeps on giving. Today, Fox has come back with more Alien-themed treats in the form of three new official photos from Covenant. Click through to see them all.  Read More »

For theme park fans, Walt Disney World’s Pandora: The World of Avatar has long existed as a series of rumors wrapped in photos taken from a distance, a handful of intriguing promises that didn’t quite line up with the fact that the Animal Kingdom theme park’s newest themed land has looked like a construction site for most of the past year. So this new video, which teases this endeavor as an actual place with rides you can go on and things you can do, is a pleasant surprise after so many aerial photos tracking minuscule changes.

war for the planet of the apes

Although the human characters change from installment to installment of the Planet of the Apes prequel series, the core ape group has remained somewhat consistent. There’s Caesar, of course (played by Andy Serkis), and his pals Maurice (Karin Konoval) and Rocket (Terry Notary). But War for the Planet of the Apes brings on one intriguing new addition, a lonely zoo chimpanzee named Bad Ape.

The day after I got to see some War for the Planet of the Apes footage introducing Bad Ape, I got the chance to talk to Bad Ape himself, Steve Zahn. He told me a little bit about his character, how he got involved with the film, the experience of doing motion capture for the very first time, and more.  Read More »

Alien Covenant Photo

One of 20th Century Fox’s most intriguing upcoming releases has to be Alien: CovenantRidley Scott‘s follow-up to 2012’s Prometheus. As the title suggests, this prequel ties more closely into the Alien franchise — but it also picks up where Prometheus left off, with the further adventures of the android David (Michael Fassbender).

I was lucky enough to attend an early presentation of footage from the film, featuring stars Katherine WaterstonAmy SeimetzCarmen EjogoDanny McBride, and more. Below, read an Alien: Covenant footage recap and my thoughts on what I saw.

Alien Covenant

20th Century Fox is ending 2016 with the start of its marketing campaign for one of their most promising 2017 releases, Alien: Covenant. You’ve seen the first trailer and read my detailed footage recap. Now find out what star Katherine Waterston has to say about the whole thing.

During the recent Fox Showcase presentation in New York City, I had the opportunity to sit down with Waterston and ask her about the new film, as well as her tough, Ripley-esque character Daniels. Understandably, she was wary of giving away too much in the way of spoilers — but we still managed to have a nice chat about her character’s style, her action hero chops, her inspirations for the performance, and more. Watch our Katherine Waterston interview below.  Read More »

Die Hard Compared to The Book

If you had a Christmas that was worth a damn this past weekend, then you probably watched Die Hard, one of the best Christmas movies. You can feel free to debate that in the comments if you disagree that it’s in fact a Christmas movie, but that’s not why we’re here. Instead, we would like to enlighten those who may not know that Die Hard was actually based on a book, and it has some significant differences from the book.

Die Hard is based on a book called Nothing Lasts Forever by Roderick Thorp, and it was actually meant to be a sequel to The Detective, another book turned into a 1968 film led by Frank Sinatra as New York detective Joe Leland. That’s where the first key differences come into play, because the story featured Leland going toe-to-toe with a terrorist named Anton “Little Tony”Gruber in a high rise building belonging to the Klaxon Oil Corporation. Sounds pretty familiar.

alien covenant trailer

Few films have divided movie fans quite like Prometheus, the Alien prequel that answered too much while saying too little. It remains one of the more maddening studio films I’ve ever paid to see in the theater: an impeccably made, stunningly designed, ambitious as hell…misfire? Flawed success? Something in-between? I’m a member of the Prometheus fan club, but I understand where the detractors come from and have come to peace with it.

But that means director Ridley Scott has something to prove with Alien: Covenant, the sixth film in the Alien series but the second chronologically, taking place about a decade after the events of Prometheus. Those of won over by Prometheus will come to this film happily, but everyone else is going to need the appropriate nudge. Will the new trailer get the job done? Or are you ignoring these introductory statements and already scrolling down to watch the preview?
