Ridley Scott is currently filming Alien: Covenant in Australia, and while we have yet to see the first official image from the upcoming Prometheus sequel, Michael Fassbender has been offering up a few ideas of what we can expect — mostly in terms of production design, which he’s compared to Scott’s sci-fi masterpiece Blade Runner. But some new set photos have popped up online to give us our first real look at Covenant, and they are somewhat unnerving.

The Martian was easily one of Ridley Scott’s better films in recent years, thanks in part to Andy Weir’s solid source material. It seems as though Scott has grown quite fond of the author, as the pair are reuniting for another film project based on a new, original pitch from Weir. Although Scott is a little too busy to direct it himself, he is teaming up with Simon Kinberg to produce the project for 20th Century Fox.

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was a bit divisive, to say the least, so when the director announced plans for a new trilogy of Alien prequels, it left fans with some big questions. We’ve gotten answers to a few of them (no, Noomi Rapace isn’t returning; yes, we will see the origins of the Xenomorph), and though he’s not allowed to reveal much about Alien: Covenant, Michael Fassbender is happy to shed a little more light on the upcoming prequel.

It looks like moviegoers weren’t the only ones who enjoyed the collaboration between Ridley Scott and Drew Goddard, as the director and writer of The Martian have decided to combine their talents once again for our viewing pleasure. Just don’t expect their next project to be as uplifting as watching astronaut Matt Damon science the s— out of some potatoes on Mars.

It’s been over a year since Blade Runner 2 tapped Sicario director Denis Villeneuve to helm, with Ryan Gosling joining Harrison Ford in the long-developing sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic. With filming slated to begin this summer, the project is really starting to come together, with Robin Wright joining the cast as of yesterday, while today brings an interesting potential new addition: Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista.

It’s hard to imagine any kind of AMC horror that doesn’t involve walking corpses these days, but Ridley Scott and David Kajganich may at last succeed in changing that. AMC has officially given a 2017 series order to The Terror, based on the Dan Simmons novel of an arctic monster chasing 1847 sailors.

Although Alien: Covenant is a horror film, its planned October 2017 release seemed a little too on-the-nose, especially for a blockbuster sci-fi project. With an increasingly excellent cast, we’re fairly excited for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien prequel, which makes today’s news of an earlier release date pretty wonderful.

Tom Hardy isn’t a name one easily lures back to TV these days, at least not on the American side, but an eight-part miniseries venture between FX and the BBC gets the Mad Max: Fury Road star grunting under a crazy hat, and naked in the snow straightaway. Take it in, as FX debuts Hardy’s new Ridley Scott-produced period drama.
