Ridley Scott Will Produce ‘Marvel’ For AMC

Ridley Scott directing The Martian

Ridley Scott is a busy man. He always has a few movies on his plate, including an adaptation of The Cartel and possibly a remake of The Prisoner, and his company also produces a healthy amount of movies. Scott Free Productions is currently working on Marvel, a TV adaptation of George Pendle‘s nonfiction book Strange Angel. And no, it doesn’t have anything to do with Marvel Studios or Marvel Comics.

Ridley Scott The Prisoner

Ridley Scott isn’t one to waste time.

The Martian Honest Trailer

One of the favorites of critics and audiences alike in 2015 was The Martian, starring Matt Damon. The movie hits Blu-ray and DVD next week, so there’s no better time for the Honest Trailer to skewer the space survival story that makes us spend even more money to rescue Matt Damon from space (which has happened a little more often than you may remember). So let’s go to a place we can only go in the movies: a world where NASA is suddenly popular and very well-funded. Read More »

directors roundtable

alien covenant

If you want to get nerds shouting at each other, bring up Prometheus. A misunderstood masterpiece? A flawed, fascinating misfire? A low point for the Alien series? You’ll find all of these opinions and more floating around the internet, which means that the upcoming Alien: Covenant is facing down a variety of expectations. For some fans, it has to redeem the previous movie. For others, it needs to deepen the mythology that was introduced in Prometheus. Director Ridley Scott, riding high off the success of The Martian, certainly has his work cut out for him.

But today’s headline does not come to us courtesy of Mr. Scott. It comes to us courtesy of costume designer Janty Yates, who revealed that Alien: Covenant will be set ten years after the crew of the Prometheus was wiped out and Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and David (Michael Fassbender) set out in search of the Engineers’ home planet.

Alien Covenant Creatures

Not too long ago we learned that the official title for Prometheus 2 would be Alien: Covenant, with the story making a direct connection to director Ridley Scott‘s 1979 classic sci-fi horror Alien. The sequel will follow the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovering what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

And now we have some details on what kind of aliens we can expect to eat up the new crew on this presumably doomed expedition, and fans of the original franchise are going to be very happy. Read More »

Alien Prequel Trilogy

Within the past couple weeks, Prometheus 2 officially got a new title and a synopsis detailing the sequel to the prequel to the Alien franchise from director Ridley Scott. The movie is called Alien: Covenant, and the fast track for this project ended up pushing back Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 to an undetermined time, and if Scott’s new plan for the Alien franchise continues, it might be a long time before we see that movie.

At a press conference in Sydney, Australia where Scott is in pre-production on Alien: Covenant, he revealed that this will actually be the first in a new trilogy that will lead us all the way back to the original Alien from 1979. More below! Read More »
