It’s been known for a while now that Ridley Scott wants to make a Prometheus 2. The question has been when he’ll do it.

But Scott has now confirmed, once and for all, that Prometheus 2 will indeed be his next movie. Read the Ridley Scott Prometheus 2 quote after the jump.  Read More »

Fantastic Four concept art

There’s a typical cycle for many major summer films, where the initial marketing gives way to a deluge of last-minute materials, with the post-release zone made interesting by the reveal of concept art and, frequently, alternate designs for various elements of the movie. We see this for Marvel movies all the time, and for many others as well.

Which is to say that, even if Fantastic Four had been a big hit without any tales of backstage drama, we’d be in the place now where we’d start to see concept art like the pieces below. In this case, it just happens that this Fantastic Four concept art, by Steve Jung, features one element many people would have liked to see in the film: the castle home of Doctor Doom. Read More »

Fantastic Four script

There will be questions about Fantastic Four for years to come: what happened, what could the film have been, what comes next? We don’t have all the answers now, but even as we hear some of the stories behind scenes that were cut from the film, there’s talk of early material that was trimmed long before the movie got to the production stage. At one point, the 2015 film featured not only Doctor Doom, but more of the FF’s classic villains, like Galactus and the Mole Man.

A breakdown of an early script draft is online, and while much of this draft was destined to be cut before the film got out of the development phase, it’s interesting to see what the early ambitions were for the movie.  Read More »

A new trailer for Ridley Scott‘s adaptation of the novel The Martian went online earlier this week, but as with the first trailer, this one seems to lean pretty heavily on details some viewers might prefer to get from the movie itself.

Amy Schumer vacation comedy

Even though Trainwreck may not be Judd Apatow’s most successful film at the box office, currently sitting with $98 million domestic behind The 40-Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up, his collaboration with Amy Schumer has an 86% at Rotten Tomatoes, which his second highest-rated film as director. That kind of reception for an R-rated comedy isn’t easy.

But Apatow had plenty of success on the big screen before now, and it’s Schumer who will benefit most from the success of this hilarious flick. She’s already marching onward and upward by getting her next movie together. Fox is working on an Amy Schumer vacation comedy that may team her up with 50/50 and Warm Bodies director Jonathan Levine.
