Morgan trailer

Anya Taylor-Joy came seemingly out of nowhere to wow audiences in The Witch earlier this year. It was the kind of star-making performance that had us dying to see where she’d end up next, and luckily we haven’t had to wait too long for an answer. Taylor-Joy will be seen this fall in Morgan, a sci-fi thriller that marks the directorial debut of Luke Scott (son of Ridley Scott, who gets a producer credit).

As in The Witch, she plays a young woman that arouses fear and suspicion in others. Unlike in The Witch, her character in Morgan seems to know exactly what she’s doing. Taylor-Joy is Morgan, an artificial being created in a lab. Kate Mara stars as a corporate consultant sent to investigate a terrifying incident involving Morgan. The impressive cast also includes Toby JonesRose LeslieBoyd HolbrookMichelle YeohJennifer Jason Leigh, and Paul Giamatti. Watch the first Morgan trailer below.  Read More »

Morgan Trailer

Last year Ridley Scott delivered the crowd-pleasing sci-fi survival drama The Martian, and now he’s busy shooting Alien: Covenant, the first film in what is supposed to be a new trilogy that will lead up to the events of the original Alien from 1979. But before that, Scott had time to produce a promising new sci-fi thriller directed by his son Luke Scott.

The film is called Morgan, and the first teaser trailer just debuted with some flares of Alien, Ex Machina and Firestarter. Plus, it’s a pure teaser that doesn’t give much away, which makes it all the move intriguing. Watch the Morgan trailer after the jump. Read More »

Today, Ridley Scott announced a new sci-fi webseries from his RSA Films commercial company, created in conjunction with his brother Tony and nephew Luke. Purefold is to be a series of 5-10 minute online videos, laden with product placement and tinged with Phillip K.Dick-like sci-fi themes, concepts and questions. Already, I’ve seen reports pitching it as a kind of Blade Runner prequel where, in fact, it is nothing of the sort. Can’t blame the Scott Bros. (and Son) from trying to cash in on the comparison-cum-confusion though, can you?
