The first glimpses from the set of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel (and Alien prequel) Alien: Covenant keep coming quicker, like drips of acid from the gaping maw of a xenomorph hiding in a builkhead. We already saw a picture of the crew uniforms (along with a patch sporting the name of infamous Alien corporation, Weyland-Yutani), plus a few other scattered photos of abject and unspeakable horror. Hey, it’s an Alien movie. That comes with the territory.

Much of Tim Burton’s 2010 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ was a forgettable, unsavory mess, but it did have some redeemable qualities. The filmmaker’s eye-popping visuals and imaginative production design were the best aspects of the largely unbearable Disney movie. But you’ll find none of that in the new sequel.
To honor the 15th anniversary of the movie that started it all, Universal is re-releasing The Fast and the Furious in theaters nationwide. Revisiting your introduction to Dom, Letty, Brian and the magical world of NOS should help make the wait for Fast 8 a little easier, but you’ll only have a limited time to see the original film on the big screen.
Back before he made Cop Car and landed the highly-coveted Spider-Man: Homecoming directing gig, Jon Watts made a little horror film called Clown. The twisted result of a collaboration between Watts and Christopher D. Ford, Clown tells the story of a man whose life is torturously taken over by a seemingly innocuous clown suit that turns out to be far more than a mere costume.
Recent news of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn spinoff confirms what we already assumed: she’s the best part of Suicide Squad. But if a new rumor proves to be true, she may not be the only charismatic member of Task Force X, as Warner Bros. might be considering giving a couple of her villainous co-stars spinoffs of their very own. To be honest, a Captain Boomerang solo movie doesn’t seem like something that would ever actually happen, but WB has done wackier things in recent years.
That long-developing live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell has drawn plenty of ire for its primarily white cast, and reports that Paramount commissioned VFX tests to make Scarlett Johansson appear asian only made things worse. Sure, the film does have some asian cast members, but they’ve been largely relegated to supporting roles so far. Perhaps that will change with the addition of The Wolverine star Rila Fukushima — though it would be far more interesting if she were cast in the lead.
Disney’s live-action remakes have become just as inevitable as death and taxes — not that it’s necessarily a bad thing, considering how well The Jungle Book turned out (on the other hand, there’s that whole Alice in Wonderland thing…). And like that project, the studio may once again be setting up a competing live-action remake, this time turning their sights to The Little Mermaid.
You thought you knew all the characters in the ‘Rogue One’ trailer, but you had no idea.
Bryan Cranston became a superstar as drug kingpin Walter White on AMC’s Breaking Bad. Clearly one of the hooks of this summer’s The Infiltrator is the way it flips Cranston’s image on its ear; this time he play the federal agent who goes undercover to take down notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar.
Although May 4 has become Star Wars Day (Observed) just because of the cutesy “May the 4th be with you” thing, the real anniversary of Star Wars’ unveiling, the day we should celebrate, is May 25. Which just so happens to be today.
