new alien film

Neill Blomkamp debuted his ideas for a new Alien film via concept art that very clearly showed Hicks, the hero from Aliens who is killed in the opening shots of Alien 3. And his first comments on video about the project, released yesterday, seemed very clear. “There’s Alien, and Aliens, then this film,” he said. That, along with comments from Sigourney Weaver about giving Ripley’s story a proper ending, all made a clear point: this upcoming film will basically ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection.

But now Blomkamp says his intent is not to undo the third and fourth movies — it’s just that he wants his film to connect to Alien and Aliens. Read More »

Gary Whitta unproduced projects

This week, we’ve been running portions of our extensive interview with screenwriter Gary Whitta (Book of Eli, After Earth) as a five-part feature we’re calling “/Film’s Week Of Whitta.” Promoting the pre-order of his first novel, Abomination, Whitta talked to us not only about his career thus far, but the future and unproduced projects that haven’t happened.

Today in the fourth part, Gary Whitta talks about the projects he’s worked on that have not made it to the big screen, which include the American live-action Akira movie, an Escape From New York reboot, a big screen adaptation of Blizzard’s popular MMORPG video game World of Warcraft. I also ask Whitta about the rumors that he may be working with Blizzard on a a Diablo or Starcraft project. I always love hearing about the movies that could have been, so for me this segment might be the most interesting. Read the Gary Whitta unproduced projects interview after the jump.

Hulk Age of Ultron character header

The first official Avengers: Age of Ultron poster was a big mess of characters and details, but the character posters are a lot more clean. It helps that the posters only have to focus on one character each — in this latest case, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk — and also that it appears to be just one part of a larger set which will assemble into a huge image. (This looks like it could be something along the lines of the concept art drop from Comic Con last summer.) We’ll continue to post the Age of Ultron character posters as they arrive, assembling them as we go along if they are indeed pieces of a larger image.

See all of the Avengers: Age of Ultron character posters below.

Spectre video blog

Following up the new images released earlier today, here’s a new Spectre video blog in which director Sam Mendes explains a lot about what’s going on with James Bond in this 24th film in the (official) series… without actually explaining much at all. But did you think he was just going to lay out the entire plot now, months before the film hits theaters? Not likely. But he does drop a few hints, so check out the video below. Read More »

Spectre Austria Craig Seydoux Bautista 2

We’ve already seen 007’s slick all-black getup from the new Bond film, Spectre, and now we have a first look at some of the characters that’ll cross his path. New pictures reveal Dave Bautista as henchman Mr. Hinx (who, unlike Drax the Destroyer, understands what a metaphor is) and Léa Seydoux as not-quite-Bond-girl Dr. Madeleine Swann.

Get to know the new characters with a fresh batch of Spectre images after the jump.

Blomkamp's Alien

Fox is making Neill Blomkamp‘s new Alien movie, and Sigourney Weaver is definitely on board to reprise her Ellen Ripley role. And while we still don’t know the story, despite the teasing glimpses provided in concept art such as the pieces above, we do know something new: Blomkamp’s Alien will basically disregard Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection as the director says he’s designing the film to sit in sequence after Aliens.

Check out a video interview with Blomkamp and Weaver discussing the next Alien film, below.  Read More »
