Last year, fans went crazy for Back to the Future Day on October 21st, 2015, celebrating the day that Doc and Marty go into the future in Back to the future Part II. Now 20th Century Fox is hoping to gin up the same kind of excitement for Alien with a special celebratory day.
On April 26th, fans can celebrate Alien Day, inspired by the planet LV-426 (get it?) from the original Alien. If you’re an Alien fan, this day comes with a slew of cool goodies, contests and screenings, including things like official Reebok shoes inspired by the ones Ripley wears in Aliens, new action figures, and an online trivia contest. Get the details below. Read More »
Over the past couple months, we’ve reported on a few cameos being made in Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters by cast members of the original 1984 paranormal comedy. However, this hasn’t been something that has pleased us.
We would much rather these cameos were surprises when seeing the movie. But when all the trades, blogs and Ghostbusters fans are spreading the news like wildfire without any regard for spoilers, it doesn’t make much sense for us to try to keep it secret.
And director Paul Feig has succumbed to this same problem as he has just revealed on Twitter that… Read More »
As cinema has progressed over its relatively short lifespan, many are already starting to forget, or simply aren’t familiar with, the classic stars of the big screen. Perhaps with the exception of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland, audiences are becoming less and less acquainted with the likes of classic starlets such as Grace Kelly, Bette Davis and Ingrid Bergman.
Now a new documentary aims to shine a light on one of those classic leading ladies in Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words, a new documentary that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this past May. A trailer from overseas has just surfaced, and it paints an intimate, personal portrait of Bergman, a side that many never got to see.

Neill Blomkamp debuted his ideas for a new Alien film via concept art that very clearly showed Hicks, the hero from Aliens who is killed in the opening shots of Alien 3. And his first comments on video about the project, released yesterday, seemed very clear. “There’s Alien, and Aliens, then this film,” he said. That, along with comments from Sigourney Weaver about giving Ripley’s story a proper ending, all made a clear point: this upcoming film will basically ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection.
But now Blomkamp says his intent is not to undo the third and fourth movies — it’s just that he wants his film to connect to Alien and Aliens. Read More »
Fox is making Neill Blomkamp‘s new Alien movie, and Sigourney Weaver is definitely on board to reprise her Ellen Ripley role. And while we still don’t know the story, despite the teasing glimpses provided in concept art such as the pieces above, we do know something new: Blomkamp’s Alien will basically disregard Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection as the director says he’s designing the film to sit in sequence after Aliens.
Check out a video interview with Blomkamp and Weaver discussing the next Alien film, below. Read More »
We’re going to see that Neill Blomkamp Alien movie after all.
Details are scarce but Wednesday afternoon, the District 9 and Chappie director tweeted that his radical reimagining of the Alien universe – which was first revealed via concept art – will “officially” be his next film. Variety then confirmed the fact with 20th Century Fox and found out Ridley Scott is producing. Read more below. Read More »
This new Chappie trailer really makes Neill Blomkamp‘s latest film out to look like his own RoboCop. There’s the designer played by Hugh Jackman who is trying to push a new military/police technology, with a design that looks a lot like the ED-209. There’s the advent of a new drone police force, and the one who ends up with a more-human-than-robot consciousness. But is that just an easy sales pitch to hide the film’s true personality? Check out the trailer below and see if you can figure it out. Read More »

2014 marked the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters and we’ve been celebrating like Gozer in New York City. The original 1984 film was rereleased, and there were traveling art shows, tons of new merchandise and events. For a while, almost every single week it seemed like something Ghostbusters was going on. That culminated last month as director Paul Feig revealed he was going to make a new Ghostbusters movie, something fans have been waiting on for 25 years.
Or maybe that wasn’t the culmination. Maybe the culmination is actually the cover of this week’s Enteratinment Weekly, which reunites four living stars of the film: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver. Harold Ramis passed away earlier this year, and there’s no appearance from Rick Moranis. But Annie Potts and director Ivan Reitman do take part. Below, check out the Ghostbusters reunion photo.
UPDATE: We’ve added some video too. Read More »
The modern, kick-ass female action star started with one name: Sigourney Weaver. So it was no surprise that Sylvester Stallone recently expressed interest in casting the iconic actress for The Expendabelles, the potential female-centric Expendables spin-off. Now it turns out, Weaver actually did get a formal offer, but passed on the role. Read more about The Expendabelles cast below. Read More »
