Prometheus

Ridley Scott has one of the best problems you can have in Hollywood. He’s got a number of projects in development that he desperately wants to make, and which financiers want to fund. The problem is, he’s just one man, and the second he commits to a project, others get moved back.

After releasing Prometheus in 2012, we already knew he was looking at making a sequel to that, as well as a sequel to Blade Runner. Neither project has happened yet, with the director instead making The Counselor, Exodus: Gods and Kings, and now The Martian. In a new interview, Scott makes it sound like either Prometheus 2 or Blade Runner 2 could be next, and he hints that the xenomorphs from the Alien franchise won’t play a part in the former. Read the Prometheus 2 xenomorph quotes and more below. Read More »

Following the viral hit of the short film Portal: No Escape, Universal Pictures and screenwriter-turned-producer Chris Morgan (Wanted, Fast Five, 47 Ronin) quickly acquired Dan Trachtenberg‘s  time travel action heist film Crime of the Century. Trachtenberg has been actively developing the idea into a movie since the 2011 acquisition with screenwriter Daniel Kunka (12 Rounds), while trying to get a Y: The Last Man movie adaptation off the ground at New Line and finally getting a greenlight with the mysterious Bad Robot film Valencia.

Now it seems like the heat is back on at Universal to get Crime of the Century into production, and the studio has hired screenwriter Gary Dauberman, who recently wrote The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle for Warner Bros.

Interstellar images

There are only about three months left in 2014 at this point, but those three months look to be absolutely jam-packed with exciting new movies. One we’re particularly looking forward to is Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar, which shoots Matthew McConaughey into outer space in a last, desperate attempt to save humanity.

As Nolan himself points out, that makes it “almost a mirror image of Inception. It expands out in the way Inception contracts inwards.” Read more comments from Nolan and his cast, and see new Interstellar images of McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Jessica Chastain, and David Gyasi after the jump.

Ian Glaubinger Hoth Star Wars header

Figuratively and literally, the Hoth location in The Empire Strikes Back is cool. It’s only in the film for a few minutes, but the ice battle on Hoth has created some of our most enduring images from the entire Star Wars saga. In fact, it’s so important, rumor has it J.J. Abrams is doing something similar in Star Wars Episode VII.

So if you like Hoth, how do you tell the world? Well, artist Ian Glaubinger has a suggestion. Dark Ink Art will release his latest print, Hoth: Protect Our Wildlife, at 11 a.m. PST September 26. We’re happy to not only debut the piece, but show you a bunch of behind the scenes images and let Glaubinger himself explain how the poster came to be. It’s a fascinating look into the creation of a seemingly simple work like this and a must read for art fans. Check out the Ian Glaubinger Hoth poster below. Read More »
