All three of Sir Ridley Scott‘s children have directed feature films now. The Alien director’s oldest son, Jake, has made some great music videos (The Cranberries’ “Zombie”) throughout his career, and his last picture was the thoughtful drama Welcome to the Rileys. Ridley Scott’s daughter, Jordan Scott, directed Cracks, which features an often frightening and heartbreaking performance from Eva Green. Luke Scott, who worked as a second-unit director on The Marian and Exodus: Gods and Kings, has his debut feature-length film, Morgan, coming out shortly.
Below, check out some Morgan videos.

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 Jones, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Paul Giamatti. Watch the first Morgan trailer below. Read More »
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 »
Almost eight years ago director David Fincher optioned the movie rights to Eric Powell‘s Dark Horse comic book series The Goon, which started back in 1999. Over the years, Blur’s animated project has struggled to acquire financing. Back in 2013, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, Powell said the comic book adaptation was still moving forward. The few hundred ground went towards paying for a feature-length story reel, which was meant to attract financiers. Since then, we’ve heard very little.
The Goon has been in development long enough that some may have forgotten that Deadpool director, Tim Miller, is co-directing the film. Well, Miller finally has an update on The Goon development.

Assassin’s Creed has lined up a cast and crew that’d be the envy of most prestige dramas, Warcraft looks like a meticulously realized fantasy epic of staggering ambition, and even Angry Birds looks pretty damn cute.
Rounding out that roster now is Ratchet & Clank, the new film based on PlayStation’s hit game. The first trailer has just landed online, and it looks like an enjoyable all-ages ride. Watch the Ratchet and Clank trailer after the jump. Read More »

Brian Wilson wasn’t a conventional person, so why should he get a conventional biopic? Love & Mercy casts not one but two actors as the Beach Boys musician. Paul Dano plays him in the 1960s, when he was a young man on track for greatness; John Cusack plays him in the 1980s, as he’s struggling to get out from under an abusive relationship with his doctor Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti).
Leaving aside the fact that Dano, Cusack, and Wilson don’t really look alike at all, Love & Mercy seems like an artful exploration of an American music icon. Elizabeth Banks also stars as Melinda Ledbetter, the woman who would become Wilson’s second wife. Watch the Love and Mercy trailer after the jump.
