Rumor: Prometheus sequel in trouble

Please take this rumor with a grain of salt or two. Nothing has been confirmed by 20th Century Fox or Ridley Scott yet. But writer Damon Lindelof says this rumor is false. The Prometheus franchise seems to be in a bit of a pickle right now....

Flixist Awards 2012: Most Underrated

This is the kind of list that is very hard to narrow down every year. You have to account for everyone's tastes, try to figure out exactly what qualifies a film as 'underrated', and then chop the nominees down to just five. There are always...

Flixist Awards 2012: Best Horror

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...


The chestburster from Prometheus that could have been

For someone who regularly voices his displeasure for Prometheus, I just can't seem to bring myself to forget about it, especially when I keep discovering all of the ideas that were cut from the final product. Not too long ago...


Ridley Scott discusses Blade Runner, Prometheus sequels

After having just seen Prometheus for the second time, I'm not particularly excited about any news involving a sequel. If anything, my distaste for the film has only grown from viewing it again, but there were still plenty of people wh...


John Spaihts shares secrets from his Prometheus script

Ah, Prometheus, how I detest that you keep finding your way back into my life, especially with news like this. Jon Spaihts, the screenwriter who worked on several drafts of the script before it was handed off to Damen Lindelof for rewriting...


Three images from an alternate Prometheus scene

Warning: This is ever so slightly spoiler-y. Prometheus is still a bit of an open wound for me. I know several people who really enjoyed it, but for me it was nothing but sloppy story telling and a slap-dash attempt to start cashing in...


Prometheus sequel confirmed; Damon Lindelof not returning

The "Is-It-or-Isn't-It" Alien prequel, Prometheus, is receiving a baby sequel in 2014 or 2015. While I haven't seen Prometheus yet, I'm sure the chance for further exposition will help the crowds that felt the film left too many questi...


Prometheus Blu-Ray outlined; 15 minutes of deleted scenes

Love it or hate it, Prometheus is a hell of a movie. And this being a Ridley Scott directed movie, we can expect a pretty grandiose home release. Fox recently detailed the list of extras that'll be on the Blu-Ray, and it doesn't disapp...


Book: Prometheus: The Art of the Film

Earlier in the month, Titan Books released Prometheus: The Art of the Movie by Mark Salisbury (designed by Martin Stiff), a beautiful hardcover volume that features hundreds of full-color images, including production art, behind-the-scenes ...


Prometheus visual effects breakdowns show practical roots

So, first off, this first video has some mild spoilers for the opening scene of Prometheus. I'm cool showing this since, again, it's literally talking about the first scene of the film. I won't talk about it in specifics, in case...


Behind the scenes shots from Prometheus raise questions

So this kinda ties in with some stuff we were just talking about on Prometheuscast, which, if my numbers are correct, a very large number of you have already downloaded and experienced. We were talking about some of the theories behind the ...

That's right, the Flixist Movie Club is back with Prometheuscast! Max, Jenika, Dre, Liz, and I are joined by Destructoid's Jim Sterling as we talk about Ridley Scott's latest science fiction opus. We delve into some of the movie's weird thi...


Red Letter Media hits every plothole in Prometheus

This should go without saying, but: SPOILERS. Prometheus is a film that raises a lot of questions. Sometimes it means to raise them and other times not so much. It's definitely philosphical in many ways, and often those kind of questi...


Review: Prometheus

Do not believe anything Ridley Scott has told you. Prometheus is a prequel to the pre-existing Alien film series. The corporate backers are one half of that template for evil sci-fi corporations, Weyland-Yutani, and a keen eye will cat...


Papercraft Prometheus trailer is awesome, so much work

Man, I can't imagine how long this hand-made papercraft trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus must have taken. Made entirely out of paper by Travis Betz, this trailer basically follows shot-for-shot one of the theatrical trailers for Prome...


International Prometheus poster is explosive, titillating

So I have thus far stayed clear of pretty much all information about Prometheus. Aside from the Guy Pearce and Michael Fassbender viral videos, I'm basically in the dark about the film. I don't need any convincing. I'm going to see the film...


Prometheus viral continues with Quiet Eye

And the Prometheus viral campaign just keeps on rollin'. Today, we're graced by the lovely Noomi Rapace sending a message to the Yutani Corporation pitching her intergalactic mission. But it wouldn't be a viral without a bunch of audi...


Trailer: Prometheus

This again? Look Ridley, we get it. Prometheus looks amazing, but you don't have to flaunt it in front of everyone. While you get to finish the movie, us mortals have to suffer until June 8. That's like, a month and some change away. ...


Meet David, be kind of creeped out by him in Prometheus

We got a really brief glimpse at the birth of David, Prometheus's resident synthetic life form played by Michael Fassbender, and that glimpse has turned into a full-on product advertisement. I have to say, if the intention of this video wa...


Ridley Scott thinks Prometheus should be rated R

Prometheus is at the top of many people's most anticipated movies of a very busy summer, and a big part of that is the prospect of Sir Ridley Scott returning to the Alien universe and bringing back the horror credibility lost after such ind...


Trailer: Prometheus

Just yesterday we showed you a new trailer for Prometheus and you had a full blown nerdgasm. Well, consider this a post tug.  Above is the U.K. variant of the Prometheus trailer, and while i was sure that would mean they'd all speak w...


New Prometheus image shows off a familiar friend

So a new image from Prometheus has been released today, and it contains someone fans of the Alien franchise might recognize. For the sake of spoilers, in case you guys don't get that the things Ridley Scott's said about the movie is basical...


First wave of Ridley Scott's Prometheus photos revealed!

Back in July we got our first peak at Prometheus and ever since then we've grown more and more confident that it is in fact an Alien prequel film. After looking at the five new photos from this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, I'm conv...


New Prometheus synopsis hints at authenticity of leak

A few months ago, a synopsis of Ridley Scott's upcoming Alien-related movie, Prometheus, was leaked, apparently offering a detailed account of the story and its themes. You can read it here, but beware of possible spoilers. Understandably, ...


SDCC 11: Ridley Scott talks Prometheus

Yes, Prometheus is an Alien movie. There is no dancing around this fact at the San Diego Comic Con. By the time I got into the 20th Century Fox's panel at SDCC, they had already started. Thankfully for this Alien fan, they were just getting...


Is Prometheus still an Alien movie?

In a recent interview with one of the stars of Ridley Scott's upcoming Sci-fi film Prometheus, Michael Fassbender reveals some details on the movie as well as his character. While keeping the script rather secretive, Fassbender has had a ch...
