We've said it before, and we'll say it again. TV continues to become more and more of a medium that Hollywood's biggest directors can find an outlet. Showtime in particular is no doubt on the hunt for more high-profile programming with the (likely) imminent loss of 'Dexter' and 'Californication, as well as 'The Big C,' so what's next? Why not turn to master director Ridley Scott, helming his first-ever TV pilot 'The Vatican!' Find out the story inside!

That Ridley Scott is such a rascal -- always taunting us with information on sequels that may or may not happen, but where there's money, there's a way, and he's talking up those 'Prometheus' and 'Blade Runner' sequels again.

The ‘Prometheus’ That Could Have Been — Facehuggers, Xenomorphs and More

'Prometheus' + Facehuggers
20th Century Fox

With the release of 'Prometheus' on Blu-ray and DVD, we can probably expect the debates that raged this past summer to fire up again; it's hard to think of another recent sci-fi movie fueling so many arguments. However, one thing the film's supporters and detractors will be able to agree upon is that the version we're seeing now is vastly different from what could have been, now that screenwriter Jon Spaihts is discussing his original vision for the Ridley Scott pic.

Did you know that it once contained facehuggers and xenomorphs? Or that it would have depicted the grossest sex scene ever? All that and more revealed after the break!

Prometheus Blade Runner
20th Century Fox/Warner Bros.

With the impending release of Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' on Blu-ray and DVD, some of our readers will be getting a nifty Steelbook Edition only released in the UK. Said edition will hand its owners a very interesting Easter egg indeed via the bonus features: A possible connection between the 'Prometheus' and Scott's 1982 classic 'Blade Runner'. (It's unclear to us at the moment if this is relegated to the UK edition or is featured in all editions.) Geeks, start your drooling!

‘Blade Runner’ Gets a New Trailer for Its 30th Anniversary

Blade Runner
Warner Brothers

The summer of 1982 was so seminal for cinema that even its flops have been canonized. 'Blade Runner' was a huge disappointment for everyone involved thirty years ago, but now it's revered as a classic. And maybe it's finally making money with all the reissues, as we're about to get a new special edition for the film's thirtieth anniversary.

‘Coma’ Review

Coma
A&E

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.
