star trek reboot on hold

Noah Hawley‘s Star Trek movie, which isn’t to be confused with the long-delayed Star Trek 4, is now on hold. Paramount actually has three different Trek movies on the backburner: Star Trek 4, the Star Trek movie that Quentin Tarantino was going to direct, and Hawley’s movie. The fate of all three remains in doubt now, and sources state that one of the reasons for the delay of Hawley’s film is that the plot involves a deadly virus, which audiences might not be in the mood for anytime soon.

Chinese Tenet Preview

Even though it feels like it’s been a long journey for Tenet to arrive in theaters, in reality, it’s only been a few weeks since the movie was supposed to be released on the big screen. All of the hullabaloo was about whether or not the movie would actually get released this summer by Warner Bros. Pictures, so the movie has been on everyone’s mind. And soon, people will finally get to see it in movie theaters.

Since theaters in the United States aren’t yet ready for a new wide release like Tenet, international markets will be getting the movie first. Audiences in China won’t be getting it before the United States (for now), but since there’s a huge population there to help boost the dead box office around the globe, they’re being tempted to see the movie by Christopher Nolan himself. Watch the director’s message and the Chinese Tenet preview below. Read More »

Scariest Scene in Alien

(Welcome to Scariest Scene Ever, a column dedicated to the most pulse-pounding moments in horror. In this edition: This claustrophobic scene in Alien relies heavily on the intensity of the actors’ performances to sell the fear.)

Ridley Scott’s seminal 1979 sci-fi horror film Alien birthed an iconic movie monster as well as an enduring franchise. It also birthed one of the most iconic scenes in cinematic history with the infamous chest-bursting scene. That scene delivered one of the most shocking, blood-drenched moments in horror, coming in at the tail end of a lighthearted family-style gathering around the dinner table. It marks the turning point of the film; going forward, the crew becomes prey to one deadly extraterrestrial. Nothing sold the intensity and horror of it like the air duct scene, which sees the Nostromo’s captain volunteer to enter into the vents to track and kill the stowaway. The simplicity of the scene, the claustrophobic setting, and the powerful performances of the actors collide in one of horror’s most palpable moments of dread and terror.

Now Lilly Wachowski, one of the film’s writers and directors, has officially confirmed that those ideas were intentional.

raised by wolves trailer

The first trailer for Raised by Wolves is here, and what a fine trailer it is. It’s a bad idea to overhype stuff based on a trailer, but I have to admit, this looks wild and different, and that’s pretty exciting. In this sci-fi series from executive producer Ridley Scott, a group of human children is being raised by two androids on a strange planet. But all is not as it seems.  Read More »

Avatar 2 Vehicle Concept Art

Avatar 2 was on track to arrive in December next year, but now the coronavirus pandemic is forcing us to wait an extra year for the anticipated sequel to James Cameron‘s sci-fi action adventure. Thankfully, producer Jon Landau is providing little tidbits of information about the sequels every now and then, and the most recent tease comes in the form of a couple pieces of concept art showing off a new multi-functional submersible vehicle used by the Resources Development Administration.

Starship Troopers Honest Trailer

When Starship Troopers came out, it was mostly received as an action-packed sci-fi movie filled with gnarly alien bugs, plenty of graphic violence, and some nudity for the horny teens out there. But slowly people realized that even though the director of RoboCop may not be subtle, he’s certainly not bombastic enough to make such a hollow movie. Instead, as the Starship Troopers Honest Trailer reminds us, this is a smart satire of the propaganda of war and the stupid people who buy into it.
