Charlize Theron is having a pretty decent month. She’s the star of Show White and the Huntsman, which opens Friday, as well as Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, which opens next Friday June 8. From there, she’s heading to Africa to shoot Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy and directed by George Miller. That’s about what you’d expect for an Oscar-winner who is sought after for almost every female role in Hollywood today.

/Film attended the London junket for Prometheus and while Theron spoke plenty about that film (we’ll run the full, spoiler-filled, interview next week) she also talked about her excitement at finally getting to shoot Mad Max, a film that has had a tumultuous time making it in front of cameras. She commented on if the script changed in that time, how violent it will be and  how her character is different from anything she’s ever done. Read her quotes after the jump. Read More »

Sequels in all stages of production – from hypothetical, to development, greenlit, filming and finished – are all featured in today’s  Sequel Bits. After the jump read about the following:

  • A prequel to the video game Tekken might be on the way from the director of Ong Bak. Or not according to the creator.
  • Not only would Andrew Stanton be open to making Finding Nemo 2, he feels Pixar will continue to make sequels after Monsters University and beyond.
  • Watch an awesome 15 minute interview with Rick Baker, in his studio, talking Men in Black 3 monsters.

We’re less than a month away from my #1 anticipated film in a great, great year of movies: Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus. The sort-of Alien prequel starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron opens June 8 and the news of its R-rating is just the latest in a long line of fantastic updates on the 3D, sci-fi epic.

The latest comes from Entertainment Weekly, the May 18 issue of which (out Friday), will be graced by the film. While the story itself has yet to come online, they’ve updated their site with 17 new looks at the sets, costumes and stars of the highly anticipated summer film. Check them out below. Read More »

I think I’m at the point where I have to stop watching new Prometheus materials. With last night’s long international trailer, the footage cut into new clips seems to have tipped from suggestive to all-out demonstrative. In other words, Fox is ready to show much more of Ridley Scott‘s hand. I’d rather see that in the full film, and so I’m shutting down my own viewing for now.

But I know there are many who want to see all they can. And so here’s the latest in Prometheus marketing: a featurette similar to one we ran last week. This time, the focus isn’t on how awesome Ridley Scott is, but more on what he and screenwriters Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof came up with for the film. Check it out below, and if the paragraph above isn’t warning enough, beware slight spoilers. Read More »

Briefly: Rupert Wyatt didn’t exactly come out of nowhere to direct Rise of the Planet of the Apes, as he already had his name on The Escapist and Subterrain. But the unlikely success of his Apes prequel definitely put him on the map for a lot of audiences. Wyatt is tapped to make another Apes movie for Fox, but he’s also making other deals.

The latest is a project called Agent 13 that, if given a green light, would have Wyatt directing Charlize Theron in a sci-fi action story scripted by T.S. Nowlin. Read More »

We’ve gone from being ravenous for every bit of footage we can get from Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus to being at a point where we might actually be sated until the film’s June 8 opening. I know I don’t want to see too much more than what we’ve been shown in the collection of footage that landed in the past week.

But I’ll take a just a few new spots, including a dire warning from Charlize Theron and a demonstration of the affection between Noomi Rapace and Logan Marshall-Green. Those bits and a couple more are part of the new stuff in the first TV spot for Prometheus, which you can see below. The other notable part of this spot is that it finally puts the word Alien right in the marketing for this movie, which acts as a prequel to the 1979 film. Read More »

WonderCon may not command the same audience as Comic-Con, but that doesn’t mean its without its fair share of powerhouse panels. Point in case: Prometheus, the full trailer for which has now been made available online, as have some other goodies.

But wait, there’s more!

Headlining the film’s panel were co-writer Damon Lindelof, director Ridley Scott, and Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender. As is typical with Con Q&A sessions, there was a good deal of fluff, but we’ve filtered all of that out for your reading pleasure.

See a Few Seconds of New ‘Prometheus’ Footage

I can’t realistically complain about the increasing practice of releasing trailers for trailers in the exact same post in which we’re showing you a trailer for a trailer. Instead I’ll take this moment to note that Fox seems to be very aware of a high level of interest in Prometheus, and is prepared to exploit every aspect of it.

The full trailer for Ridley Scott‘s new film will be released on Saturday, March 17, during an event parallel to this year’s Anaheim incarnation of WonderCon. Fox says:

On Saturday, March 17th at 4 p.m. PST/ 7 p.m. EST, legendary director Ridley Scott will premiere the first full trailer for one of 2012′s most anticipated films, PROMETHEUS, at the AMC Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA. This invite-only premiere will follow a 30 minutes Q&A session with the iconic director conducted by Prometheus writer/producer Damon Lindelof.

That even will be presented online via Livestream, but in the meantime you can see a bit of the new trailer below. Read More »
