Although Noomi Rapace’s Dr. Elizabeth Shaw was one of the few survivors of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, the prequel to Alien (and predecessor to the upcoming Alien: Covenant), reports from the production have repeatedly claimed Rapace would not reprise her role for the sequel. Back in January, Scott told the press that Shaw wouldn’t appear in Alien: Covenant, which is set 10 years after the events of Prometheus, when a new crew of doomed astronauts stumble upon a paradise planet whose sole inhabitant is David, Michael Fassbender’s robot character from Prometheus. There had been some talk about Rapace “briefly” reprising her role, but then Scott’s claimed that she would not.

It’s been a while since we had an update on Bright, so you’d be excused for forgetting all about it — except it’s sort of impossible to forget that David Ayer is directing a movie for Netflix starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton as a pair of mismatched buddy cops. Oh, and one of them is an orc, apparently. It’s also hard to forget how the internet’s collective jaw dropped when Netflix plopped down $90 million for the film, and it looks like some of that money might go to Noomi Rapace, as the actress is in talks to join the strange new project.

Although Ridley Scott recently said that Noomi Rapace would reprise her role — albeit briefly — as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw in Alien: Covenant, the director has now determined that the actress will actually not be returning for the upcoming Prometheus sequel / Alien prequel. Many assumed we might see how her ill-advised adventure with Michael Fassbender’s David panned out, though it’s fair to assume that things didn’t go so well.

There are actually two Amy Winehouse biopics in the works right now — one from August Rush director Kirsten Sheridan, and another that’s being overseen by the late singer’s father, Mitch Winehouse, who famously voiced disapproval about his portrayal in this summer’s hit documentary, Amy. The non-dad-approved biopic may be moving along a bit more quickly, as Prometheus star Noomi Rapace is reportedly in talks to play the role of the iconic singer.

Paramount Picks Up Michael Mann’s Enzo Ferrari Biopic, Angling to Add Noomi Rapace

For a movie about a guy who developed neck-snappingly fast cars, Michael Mann’s Enzo Ferrari has been making progress at an extremely gradual pace. Mann first started toying with the idea of chronicling the life of the Italian auto pioneer (a concept first realized fictitiously on the HBO series Entourage, with the world’s greatest thespian Vinny Chase in the title role) fifteen years ago, but the film only shifted into gear earlier this year.

Ever since the release of Prometheus, Ridley Scott has been teasing fans with the idea of a sequel. Like most prolific directors, Scott always has a few projects kicking around and some never come to fruition — especially sequels. But after months of talking up the possibilities, Scott has confirmed that Prometheus 2 is officially his next project.

Look at this movie’s cast: Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace. Joel Kinnaman. Gary Oldman. Vincent Cassel. Paddy Considine. Even Jason Clarke shows up for a couple scenes. That’s a staggering roster of acting talent. It shouldn’t be possible to make a movie this bad with a cast that good. And yet somehow it is. And Child 44 is the proof.

The ‘Child 44’ trailer confirms something that has been a long time coming: 2015 is going to be the year of Tom Hardy. Sure, he’s been steadily rising through the ranks of Hollywood stardom for nearly a decade now, but he has five films coming out within the next 12 months, playing everything from post-apocalyptic action heroes to 19th century American cowboys. In the case of ‘Child 44,’ he’s taking on the role of a military police officer in the Soviet Union during the 1950s who finds himself embroiled in the hunt for a prolific child murderer.

'The Drop' may well be known as the late James Gandolfini's last film, but that's not all it should be known for. It also features Tom Hardy cuddling with puppies. Okay, okay, it's actually an effective and intense crime drama, which features yet...

There's a lot to admire in the new trailer for 'The Drop.' The first thing you'll notice is the presence of the late, great James Gandolfini is his final role. The second thing you'll notice is that Tom Hardy just plain smolders, even with a Brooklyn accent. The third thing you'll notice is that this is the American debut of director Michaël Roskam, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker behind the fantastic and truly unique crime film 'Bullhead.' Yeah, this is a movie you should keep your eye on.
