Prometheus is one of those films that you are much better of not knowing anything about going in. Which is why I almost didn’t write this review. The less you know going in the better. The trailers actually did a great job of giving you just enough information to get you in the theater, and without any context, really very little information beyond that. So I urge you, please stop reading this review, if the trailer intrigues you enough, then go see the film. My review won’t contain any spoilers, but regardless, I think Prometheus is a film that should be experienced with no opinions other than your own influencing your experience. [Read more...]
This is probably my most anticipated film this summer next to the Dark Knight Rises. I’ve tried to know as little as possible about it outside of the fact that there is some relation to Ridley Scott’s Alien, but, it is a story independent of that film. It stars Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Patrick Wilson, and Charlize Theron, and was written by Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts. I seriously cannot wait for this movie, especially after this trailer.
It makes me ridiculously happy to report this. Ridley Scott is returning to the Alien franchise as director.
20th Century Fox has hired scribe Jon Spaihts to write a prequel to the 1979 film that Ridley Scott directed. The film tells the story of a commercial towing ship that responds to a distress signal from a nearby planet. They discover too late that the signal was coming from an empty ship was actually a warning.
There have been three sequels since the original Alien, and it was the pitch for an Alien reboot by Spaihts that got Scott interested in the project.
I cannot wait.
