Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World gets first trailer

The kidnapping of John Paul Getty III has somewhat faded into the annals of history, but when it happened is was probably the biggest story in the world. The kidnapping was obviously major news, but Getty's grandfather, at the time th...

Alien: Covenant sequel to film within 14 months

If the reviews are to be believed, and they should be because we wrote it, Alien: Covenant is not a good movie, and is definitely not the space horror film you thought you were getting. However, that probably won't stop the box office ...

 
 
 
Alien: Covenant Review photo

Review: Alien: Covenant

As reviled as it is (justifiably or not), Prometheus deserves a little pass for being unlike its Alien siblings in large part because of its branding. It may be in the same canon, but it’s not pretending to be an Alien movie. And, at ...

Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 isn't happening says Ridley Scott

After Prometheus landed and everyone was kind of confused about everything and just wanted another Alien movie it looked like Neill Blomkamp might sail in to the rescue. The director had some ideas that he threw out on the interne...

Alien: Covenant gets a prologue with food and drinking

Yesterday we got our first good look at the crew of Alien: Covenant and today we have a bit of a prologue to the film that's been released. "Prologue: Last Supper" doesn't really tell us much, but it has fun playing with some of Alien&...

New image for Alien: Covenant teases new trailer

When the first trailer for Alien: Covenant landed I was pretty excited as it looked like a true return to from for the series after the oddness of Prometheus. I mean just check out this new picture; it's basically a small crew waiting ...

Ridley Scott wants to adapt The Prisoner for the big screen

Originally aired in 1967 and 1968, The Prisoner is one of the best TV shows of all time. Many directors have tried to bring it to the big screen, including Simon West and Christopher Nolan, and the show had a poorly received AMC remake in 2...

Review: The Martian

If you haven't read The Martian you should because it's better than whatever you're reading now (most likely). It's one of the most enthralling pieces of science fiction to come along in ages and it's an incredibly quick and easy read....

Prometheus sequel gets new, Alien friendly title

Despite the two hour confusing slog it was, Prometheus was divisive here at Flixist. We even pulled in Jim Sterling at one point to talk about it because it was so crazy. I'm sure Ridley Scott was interested in pursuing a sequel because it ...

Ridley Scott is still making Prometheus 2 for some reason

So...like, remember Prometheus? That modern classic sci-fi film that set the world on fire and had clamoring fans eager for a sequel the second they left the theater? No? Well...you're getting a Prometheus sequel anyway. In an interview wit...

New trailer for The Martian is pretty spoilery

Are you excited to check out Ridley Scott's The Martian? If so, it might not be a terrible idea to pass on the newest trailer for the adaptation of Andy Weir's hit novel, due out in October. In short, the new trailer isn't playing coy at al...

First trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian

Although Ridley Scott has had a few misses lately, his adaptation of Andy Weir's The Martian might shape up to be quite a film. It's got a great cast with Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena...

Plenty of first looks at Ridley Scott's The Martian

The novel The Martian is still in my must read pile, but it's supposed to be a fantastic and science-based tale of space survival, which is basically Ridley Scott's wheelhouse, so the adaptation is basically made for the man. We alread...

6 things we want from Neill Blomkamp's Alien project

We've all wanted to make a movie at some point. We've all thought it through in our minds, from story to characters to the final act that would shock audiences around the world. Our own personal dream movie. A movie we would love to see, bu...

Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings

Folks don't know this about me, but I have a soft spot for biblical stories. Having been raised half Roman Catholic, half who gives a hooey, I have an abundant knowledge of Christian bible quotes and intricacies. Regardless of your beliefs,...

Newest Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer lets the people go

I can't watch help but watch these trailers for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings without thinking about all of the other times I've seen this story played out on film. The Ten Commandments, The Prince of Egypt, that one episode of The...

Ridley Scott addresses Exodus: Gods and Kings' White cast

Casting in Hollywood has always been predominantly White. You can argue about certain stars or certain roles, but that's the cold, hard truth. Regardless of the film, the leads have always been a certain race, and in a perfect world, I coul...

Blade Runner 2 script is finished, brings back Harrison Ford

We've been hearing about the Blade Runner sequel for nigh on forever now, but it looks like one giant hurdle has been leaped: the screenplay is finished. Ridley Scott told EW as much while also telling them that it was "damn good." Con...

 
 
Ridley Scott's David  photo

Ridley Scott producing biblical film based on David

With Noah, a Ben-Hur remake, that Bible miniseries, a film based on Pontius Pilate, and Ridley Scott's own Exodus: Gods and Kings in the pipeline, it seems like big Biblical adaptations are making a comeback. That's pretty cool. There are n...

New images for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings

We've seen a scant few images from Ridley Scott's upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings (that's a new full title by the way), which stars Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Pharo Ramses. Nothing says Egypt like two white guys. Grea...

NRH's Final Analysis: Blade Runner

Is there anything left for me to say about the film? I'm trying not to get ahead of myself but I'm something of a Blade Runner fanatic and, some might say, even a Blade Runner academic. I've written a book on the film, I've written cou...

First image of Christian Bale in Exodus has a beard

If there is one thing that Hollywood has taught us that is a historical fact it is that Moses had a beard. While Bale's beard in Ridley Scott's Exodus might not be as epic as Charleton Heston's was it is good to know that they are keeping o...

Review: The Counselor

Cormac McCarthy books have been made into some of the best movies you will ever watch. The likes of No Country for Old Men and The Road are the epitome of how adaptations should work and McCarthy's blend of philosophical dialog an...

Christian Bale is Moses in Ridley Scott's Exodus

Ridley Scott's upcoming Bible film, Exodus, is already a hot topic thanks to it being about the Bible, but it's about to get even more interesting as the aptly named Christian Bale has been officially cast as Moses for the film. Joel Edgert...

Trailer: The Counselor

Holy intensity, Cormac McCarthy and Ridley Scott. The first trailer for The Counselor has landed and it is damn full of stylish power. Who knew Scott could be this slick after the bombast of his last few films. It's a far cry from Pro...

Prometheus sequel is certainly happening, nabs new writer

Whether we like it or not (and despite rumblings of pre-production trouble), Fox is moving forward with a sequel to the blockbuster head scratcher, Prometheus, just as Noomi Rapace hinted at a few months back. Hey it's not all bad news...

Damon Lindelof not working on Paradise (Prometheus 2)

Ridley Scott's Prometheus is a gorgeous movie rife with half-baked, pseudo-intellectual ideas. It's also populated by embarrassingly stupid characters. A lot of my gripes fall at the feet of Damon Lindelof, who rewrote the film's ...

Read Alien: Engineers, the original version of Prometheus

Ridley Scott's Prometheus was a gorgeous-looking movie filled with some the most abysmally idiotic characters I've seen in a long while. (e.g., How do you get lost when you have a digital map? Why can't you run diagonally or perpendicularly...

Ridley Scott's I Am Legend vampires are better than CG

Francis Lawrence's I Am Legend (starring Will "Movin' in with your Auntie and Uncle in Bel Air" Smith) was okay. Not bad, not great, but okay. Part of the reason my enjoyment for it was tempered was that the vampires had changed severely f...
