Stars: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin Writers: Evan Daugherty, John Lee Hancock, Hossein Amini Director: Rupert Sanders Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: June 1, 2012 After Julia Roberts tore through scenery in the campy MIRROR, MIRROR early this year, prospects for the second big studio reboot of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale certainly didn’t look promising. However, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN has just the right amount of reinvention and visual panache, that it turns out to be a pretty decent movie. The story is way too familiar, which is one of its big drawbacks, but director […]Read On »

While speaking on the panel at Wondercon 2012 for PROMETHEUS, the thinly veiled ALIEN prequel, director Ridley Scott hinted that there will be more movies in his latest science-fiction opus if things go well with this one. “It’s been a long time since I’ve done science-fiction which doesn’t mean I wasn’t trying couldn’t come across anything that was of interest with me,” says Scott who says the description that this has “the DNA of ALIEN” is a perfectly good description.” Once Scott began to work with screenwriter Damon Lindelof, the original seed of an idea that Scott had developed for […]Read On »

While speaking to the press at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, LOST co-creator Damon Lindelof spoke about scripting the new Ridley Scott directed film PROMETHEUS, which depending on who you speak to, is a thinly veiled prequel to Scott’s 1979 ALIEN. In coming up with a title, Lindelof says he wanted to come up with something “pretentious” like INTENTION. “PROMETHEUS makes the movie sound much smarter and much better than my original title EXPLOSION,” Lindelof says with a grin. Lindelof does go on to say that the title is very key into the story of the film, since Prometheus was […]Read On »

While Sigourney Weaver clearly has some big shoes to fill now that Ridley Scott is helming a loosely connected prequel to his 1979 classic ALIEN, casting Charlize Theron in the new film called PROMETHEUS surprisingly didn’t require the actress to get into shape. “I was going to do MAD MAX, so I started training for that for six months,” says Theron. “I would be lying if I said I was training for this.” Her character of Meredith Vickers is more business-like than kick-ass heroine, which got very interesting for the actress. “I’m the Suit,” she says. “I have a very […]Read On »

While speaking to the press at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, writer-producer Damon Lindelof (LOST)  finally revealed the secrets behind the new film PROMETHEUS that he penned and produced for director Ridley Scott. What started off as a prequel to Scott’s 1979 classic, ended up becoming its own entity. However, details were scarce until today as Lindelof spilled some of the secrets. “I think from the beginning Ridley has been very cryptically obtuse about it,” says Lindelof. “There are some very big ideas in PROMETHEUS, thereby it covers a vast space of time – the past present and future. Is […]Read On »
