Scott hasn’t been shy in discussing plans for the projects — particularly his own — and the director is at it again, teasing more plot details for Alien: Paradise Lost, as well as a potential release date for Blomkamp’s film.
John Boyega is having one hell of a year. After impressing audiences with his role in the Edgar Wright-produced, Joe Cornish-directed sci-fi film Attack the Block, Boyega was on many fans’ wish lists for big blockbuster projects. He finally got his chance with a lead role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and although the film doesn’t hit theaters until December, it’s already given him a huge break. But how is Boyega handling his newfound fame? He has a very special mentor to give him some guidance.

Artist Tyler Stout creates some of the most impressive, amazing and sought-after movie posters in the world. You know his work through Mondo, where he’s designed beautiful posters for Akira, Guardians of the Galaxy and the original Star Wars trilogy. Recently he was commissioned by Marvel to illustrate an Avengers: Age of Ultron poster that would be made exclusively to the cast and crew of that film. In a world of extremely rare posters, this one — unless you’re Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson or Joss Whedon — might be one of the rarest.

Makes perfect sense, we thought. Genisys was not a very good movie and didn’t leave many people, including us, very interested the future of this franchise.
