With Disney CEO Bob Iger thinking that Marvel movies could go on forever, and Transformers movies planned to the end of the decade, it should come as no surprise to hear that Lionsgate hopes their revamped Power Rangers movie will be the start of a new franchise.

On Alien Day last month, director Ridley Scott offered our first look at the production of Alien: Covenant by way of the mission patch with the name of the title ship we’ll be following. This is just the first of what is meant to be two sequels (even though Scott once said this was the first in a new trilogy) that lead us up to the events of Alien in 1979. Production is still underway, and a new photo has just been shared from the set that provides us with our first look at Katherine Waterston as the new female lead character, Daniels. Will she be as cool as Ellen Ripley?

DreamWorks adaptation of the anime Ghost in the Shell has come under fire for whitewashing by casting Scarlett Johansson in the lead role as Kusanagi, a cyborg that is a part of an elite cybercrime-fighting task force known as Section 9. However, there will be some Asian talent on board the project in key roles in a poor attempt to heal the wounds left by this increasingly annoying method of casting.
