Desperate to breathe life back into the series, 20th Century Fox turned to director Bryan Singer to help right the ship, and although Singer didn’t return…

Just a few days ago, 20th Century Fox announced a handful of new films, including an unnamed project from director Ridley Scott which many assumed would be the sequel to Prometheus. Looks like those assumptions were dead-on, as The Wrap reported earlier today that Prometheus 2 (not the official title) would be opening on March 4, 2016. In addition, the…

In my original theatrical review of The Counselor, I called the film “a spectacular failure on almost every level” and “particularly disappointing considering the talent involved.” Needless to say, I wasn’t exactly keen to revisit the material again, especially with the extended cut running about 20 minutes longer than its theatrical counterpart. But upon further consideration, I recalled several of Ridley…

Abrams and Empire Strikes Back writer Lawrence Kasdan to take over, rumors began circulating that all of Arndt’s work would be scrapped and the duo would be starting from scratch.

With X-Men: Days of Future Past currently filming, it seemed a bit strange that the title wasn’t included as part of 20th Century Fox’s scheduled Comic-Con presentation in Hall H. After a short chat with The Wolverine director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman, there was still plenty of time left on the panel, and the crowd gave a thunderous…

In this clever (and somewhat creepy) viral marketing video for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, we get introduced to David (Michael Fassbender), the incredibly lifelike android that will be accompanying the team of scientists aboard the titular spacecraft. Fassbender looks great here, affecting a vaguely human quality while keeping his dialogue delivery appropriately robotic. Check it out.   Prometheus opens on June…
