Sam Raimi and Marc Webb Passed on ‘The Flash’

The Flash director

The search for The Flash director continues. Yesterday, we heard Robert Zemeckis is the frontrunner for the job, and today we’re hearing two Spider-Man directors, Sam Raimi and Marc Webb, are no longer in the running. Either one of them could’ve replaced directors Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and Seth Grahame-Smith (The LEGO Batman Movie), who both left the project over creative differences.

Below, learn more about what Raimi and Webb have coming up.

Alien prologue

At the end of Prometheus, Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) either makes a very brave or very foolish decision. After the doctor’s search for humanity’s creators goes horribly wrong, leaving most of the Prometheus crew dead, she continues to seek answers. Based on Shaw’s lack of presence in the promotional materials for Alien: Covenant, her minimal role in the film, and the fact she’s with David (Michael Fassbender), we’re presuming her post-Prometheus mission doesn’t go so well.

In a new Alien: Covenant prologue, titled “The Crossing,” you can see Elizabeth and David hitting it off on their journey.

Alien Covenant Promos

The crew aboard the Covenant are in for one rude awakening. They’re all hopeful for their colony expedition and ready to start new lives, but what they don’t see coming are Xenomorphs, chest bursters, and your friendly neighborhood homicidal droid, David (Michael Fassbender). Daniels (Katherine Waterson) and friends are mostly doomed, but they don’t know that yet in some new Alien: Covenant promos, which features the film’s heroine and Captain Oram (Billy Crudup) sending messages back home intercut with some found footage of everything going to hell.

Alien Covenant international poster

We’re only a month away from witnessing some nasty xenomorphs tear apart the crew of the colony ship known as the Covenant. A recent poster for Sir Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant went heavy on religious subtext, while the new international poster highlights the film’s stars. It’s a less artful piece of marketing for the sequel, but at least it has Billy Crudup in full view.

Below, check out the Alien: Covenant international poster.

Alien Covenant Trailer Breakdown 53

Last year, I visited the set of Alien: Covenant. Today, I was able to publish my observations, and I wrote all about the film’s gore and monsters, its cast of characters, its sets and costumes, and its connections to Prometheus. And then, like clockwork, a new trailer arrived, and you know what means – it’s time to go through this whole thing frame-by-frame.

The Xenomorph may be the star of the Alien movies, but let’s face it: these movies wouldn’t have much staying power if the humans they were tearing apart didn’t make us care just a little bit. Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley, the crew of the Nostromo, and the colonial marines on LV-426 aren’t just victims – they’re flesh-and-blood people we grow to love before they’re so violently torn away from us.

Alien: Covenant follows in the footsteps of its predecessors by offering up a strong ensemble of actors for the slaughter: Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Billy CrudupDemián Bichir, and more. And now, here’s everything we learned about the doomed crew of the colony ship Covenant after visiting the set last year.

alien covenant prologue

If you were watching Legion this evening (and you really should be watching Legion!), you were offered a brief preview of looks like an extended clip from Alien: Covenant. The full scene has arrived online and it introduces us to the crew of the colony ship Covenant, which is venturing deep into space on a mission to establish human outposts on other planets. But it’s not actually a scene from the movie – it’s a short film called Prologue: Last Supper and it’s directed by Luke Scott, the son of director Ridley Scott.

While it probably doesn’t feature any footage from the actual movie, the short does offer something the final film probably will not: this group of people actually having a good time, with no running or screaming or eviscerations. Let’s see what we can gleam from it.

Katherine Waterston in Alien: Covenant

Yesterday, we got our first look at the complete cast of Shane Black’s The Predator, so it makes perfect sense that today offers up our first look at the complete cast of Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant. After all, these are the definitive science fiction/horror movie series, with the beasties at the center of both franchises even battling it out in the two Alien vs. Predator movies. It’s fun to imagine that rivalry extending beyond the screen – “Well, if they’re going to release a cast picture…”

So here we go: here is our first look at the Alien: Covenant cast gathered in one place.
