If the latest rumor regarding Alien: Covenant proves to be true, then you should definitely turn back now because this could be a potentially major spoiler. A new report offers additional details on Katherine Waterston’s role in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus follow-up, in which she plays the commander of a derelict crew — we already knew that, of course, but what we didn’t know is that there just might be something more to Waterston’s part.

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.
Kate Mara looks very confused in the new teaser trailer for ‘Morgan,’ and so am I.
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.
Yesterday was “Alien Day,” the latest “holiday” concocted by studio marketing teams to continue interest in their franchises (see also: Star Wars Day, Force Friday and Back to the Future Day). The crass commercialization can almost be overlooked...
Remember last year when Neill Blomkamp released his ‘Alien’ concept art? Remember losing your cool when he announced his ‘Alien’ movie was actually happening? And then Ridley Scott walked in and seemingly swooped all those dreams away.
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.
