Great, like we all weren't worried about surgical procedures to begin with. Now there's the added problem of going under the knife and becoming part of a complex conspiracy that, for whatever reason, puts you in a Silver Surfer costume, dangling from the ceiling.
If you think you know what that conspiracy is just because you read Robin Cook's thriller 'Coma' or saw the 1978 film adaptation by Michael Crichton, think again. This mini-series produced by Ridley and Tony Scott airing on A&E beginning Labor Day does something far more important than present a new paranoid thriller. It acts as a rejoinder to the three hundred essays suggesting that cable television is the bold, new frontier for storytellers. This new version of 'Coma' is a cheap, lame Movie of the Week of the pre-'Sopranos'/'Breaking Bad' era. It is lousy, lazy and disposable. Whatever your plans are for Labor Day, don't think for a minute you need to race home to catch this.
Ridley Scott - Page 5
Way back in 2007 (18 years in Movie Years) Ridley Scott signed on to direct 'Child 44,' but it seems he's just a bit too busy at the moment. But have no fear -- 'Safe House' director Daniel Espinosa has just landed the gig.
'Prometheus 2' is going to happen. Despite a lukewarm critical reception, the film performed well enough (over $300 million worldwide) to warrant a sequel. And now we have some details on when we can expect 'Prometheus 2' and who will be returning.
The photo above is taken from the prologue of 'Prometheus,' in which one of the extraterrestrial Engineers sacrifices himself in order to allow his DNA to plant the seeds of life on Earth. But we bet you didn't know that someone is standing right behind him -- someone not seen in the finished film.
That darned Ridley Scott. Not content to address the origins of human existence in his new sci-fi thriller 'Prometheus,' the 74-year-old filmmaker is taking on another ambitious project: adapting the Biblical story of Moses.
It's another day and yes, another 'Prometheus' trailer, clip or featurette has surfaced somewhere online. This time around it's the latter -- a featurette -- and it focuses on the title "character"...not the Titan of ancient myths but the ship of the future.
There's been rumblings about the Ridley Scott-directed 'Blade Runner' follow-up for a while, but there hasn't been a script. It looks like Hampton Fancher - one of the two credited writers on the original - is in talks to come back and write what is now being called a sequel.
The deluge of 'Prometheus' footage shows no signs of letting up, and with the film's release less than a month away, Fox seems bent on making sure we've seen all there is to see before then. What follows is a new TV spot with some spoilers...
God does not build in straight lines. And neither, apparently, does Ridley Scott. For while we’ve all kind of assumed that the director’s ‘Prometheus’ was a prequel to his ‘Alien,’ the closer we get to the film’s release date, we’re finding out that might not be the case.
The featurettes, TV spots and images are starting to roll in for the upcoming science fiction film 'Prometheus,' and each one reveals a bit more about the Damon Lindelof-written story that has managed to stay a secret since shooting last year. Now a brand new featurette reveals even more about the movie and what fans can expect.
