Prometheus

Ridley Scott‘s last two movies, Prometheus and The Counselor, haven’t exactly supported his legendary status. The good news is, once you reach that status, it never goes away. So the director behind some of the best sci-fi and action films of all time continues to look ahead. His next movie will be the Biblical epic Exodus and, after that… we don’t know what he’ll make. Two definite options are the rumored sequels to Prometheus and Blade Runner. The director recently confirmed both films are still being written. Or maybe one of them is written. It’s hard to tell. Read his update about those, and the long in-development The Forever War, below. Read More »

The notion of a Blade Runner sequel wasn’t something a lot of sci-fi fans wanted to think about even before Ridley Scott made Prometheus. And now that we have that semi-prequel to Alien to take into account, it seems more than ever that Blade Runner might be better left alone.

The new film is happening, however, based on a first draft by Blade Runner writer Hampton Fancher. So let’s try to look on the bright side, shall we? How about considering what the newly announced rewrite screenwriter might bring to the table? Michael Green has been hired to script, and since he’s one of the credited writers on Green Lantern… oh, crap.  Read More »

The fate of a Prometheus sequel is likely being decided as we speak…on Blu-ray shelves nationwide. Ridley Scott‘s return to the Alien universe just came out on Blu-ray after its slightly disappointing U.S box office, grossing just over $126 million. When combined with its international take, though, the film was a moderate hit, grossing just over $400 million. That’s not a number that guarantees a follow up but the movie has generated a ton of discussion and a strong showing in the home market would surely help the sequel’s case immensely.

Scott recently spoke about that potential film and made it sound like a Blade Runner sequel was more certain than a second trip on the Prometheus, saying that the sequel to the 1982 classic was definitely “happening.” Read his quotes after the jump. Read More »
