Abrams Distributor: Paramount Release Date: May 16, 2013 Giving any kind of plot summary of STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS runs more than the usual risk of spoilers. What can be said? Well, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), Mr. Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the very dedicated crew of the Enterprise extricate themselves by the skin of their teeth […]Read On »

While speaking to a small group of press after the PROMETHEUS panel at Wondercon 2012, screenwriter and producer Damon Lindelof spoke a little bit more in detail about where a PROMETHEUS 2 could go. It also shed some light on why PROMETHEUS has the “DNA” of the ALIEN films, but isn’t a really a true prequel. “If ending this movie is going to take you to the room where John Hurt is walking into that room full of eggs, we know where it’s going to end,” says Lindelof and why they didn’t do that? “Real good stories, you don’t know […]Read On »

Movie Review: PROMETHEUS

Rating: R Stars: Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Logan Marshall-Green, Sean Harris, Rafe Spall Writers: Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof Director: Ridley Scott Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: June 8, 2012 Prior to PROMETHEUS, director Ridley Scott has, in his prolific career, made only two other science fiction films. However, those two films were ALIEN and BLADE RUNNER. It’s hard to imagine what current science fiction (and, in the case of ALIEN, creature horror) films would look like without those two seminal features in the canon, except to say that things would be different.

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 »

ABC’s new series ONCE UPON A TIME, airing Sundays at 8 PM, is definitely a fantasy, but beyond that, it’s hard to compare to anything on the air, now or in the past. The short version of the premise is that the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) exiles many characters from Fairytale Land, including Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle), to the picturesque small town of Storybrooke, Maine. The erstwhile fairytale folk have no notion of their true identities but young Henry (Jared Gilmore), the adopted son of the mayor, has a glimmer of what […]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 »

SDCC 2011 News: PROMETHEUS star Charlize Theron wishes she got into shape for the new sci-fi film

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 »
