Prometheus

  1. Ridley Scott Offers an Incredibly Dissatisfying Explanation of Why Exodus: Gods and Kings Is So Very White

    I'm not impressed.

    I'm listening, Ridley. Not that I think there could possibly be a good reason for whitewashing Moses and Rameses in Exodus: Gods and Kings. But hell, give it a shot. Wow me.

  4. “Before VFX” Tumblr Shows Us Hollywood Without Its Digital Makeup

    There has been some controversy in the world of Hollywood special effects recently. While Life of Pi brings in hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office and wins awards for its special effects, the company that did those effects, Rhythm & Hues, went bankrupt and closed up shop. The effects community protested the Oscars over the weekend, and have since continued their campaign online, where no one can play them off in mid-speech. The new Tumblr "Before VFX" shows us what popular Hollywood films looked like before special effects.

  5. Popular Science Picks the 2012 Movie With the Sloppiest Science

    she blinded me with science

    Science in sci-fi movies is rarely all that accurate. We get that. It's OK. Space battles wouldn't be nearly so visually interesting if there weren't any impossible explosions taking place in a vacuum. But some movies take their disregard for the basic principles of science to the next level. And according to Popular Science, the worst perpetrator from 2012 is…

  6. Mirror, Mirror: Two of Saturn’s Moons Face Off Across Its Rings

    While the above picture may look like an asteroid as seen in an enormous cosmic mirror, it's not -- it's much, much cooler than that. This is the one of the latest images from NASA's Cassini probe, which shows two of Saturns "shepherd moons" -- Pandora and Prometheus, and we swear we're not making that up -- seemingly staring at one another down across the planet's rings.

  7. Damon Lindelof Won’t Be Back to Spread Confusion in the Prometheus Sequel

    It Came From Outer Space

    Ridley Scott's going to have to find himself a new writer to (hopefully) explain all those crazy plotholes in the Prometheus sequel, because Damon Lindelof has officially taken himself out of the running. Lindelof, who rewrote Jon Spaiht's original Prometheus script (which had facehuggers galore and a chestburster sex scene), told Scott that he'd be unable to commit to writing the Prometheus sequel because he has so many other projects in the works.

  9. My Little Prometheus: Science is Our Undoing

    This is just like magic!

    "It’s a diorama depicting two space-traveling modern ponies discovering an ancient pony ruin on an exotic world," says the artist behind this diorama, prepared for My Little Pony Project 2012, "I was going for a mix of Planet of the Apes plus Lost, meets Prometheus where the new Friendship Is Magic ponies discover a Stone Age relic of the original style of pony. This suggests they have encountered evidence of their prehistoric extraterrestrial origins." Let just hope they know better than to take off their helmets or touch any mysterious space goo. Seriously.

  10. Awwww, Man. That Prometheus/Blade Runner Connection Was Just a False Alarm

    And That's Terrible

    You hear that? That's the sound of my Prometheus-related hopes and dreams falling to the floor and breaking into dozens of pieces. In an interview with Movies.com, Prometheus Blu-ray producer Charles de Lauzirika explained that the Blu-ray special feature linking Prometheus to Blade Runner is nothing more than a funny Easter egg, a nod to the fans who have long speculated as to a possible connection between Alien and Blade Runner universes.

  11. Why Prometheus Got More Interesting After It Left Theaters…

    Curiouser and curiouser!

    Prometheus comes out on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, which means we've been seeing a lot of interesting tidbits about the either genius or confusing and muddled (depending on who you ask) film. And while we already knew there will be a good 35 minutes of deleted and alternate scenes on the Blu-ray set, we now also know that they're forever going to be confined to the "special features" submenu, as director Ridley Scott is refusing to do a Director's Cut.

  13. Honestly, Prometheus is Mostly About Landscapes, Space Balls [Video]

    A lot of people really didn't like Prometheus. People have incredibly high expectations for a movie created to uphold and refresh the legacy of one the greatest sci-fi franchises ever made, and it definitely feels flimsy when it you look at closely. How does the film fall apart, you ask? There are a lot of reasons, really, which is why we'll leave it to this Screen Junkies' brutally honest trailer describe everything that's wrong with it.

  14. Fox to Release Digital Movies Three Weeks Prior to Retail

    Waiting for a major film release to finally hit store shelves can be a pain. Lack of availability is something often brought up during the discussion on piracy. Studios, for their part, have to battle with theaters when trying to release their movies to home viewers earlier than the current status quo. In an effort to revive flagging film sales, Fox will start digitally releasing high-definition versions of their films about three weeks before they can be bought on disc or viewed through on-demand services.

    With summer interns making their way back to the hallowed halls of education and Jill and I starting to realize just how close New York Comic Con is, we felt it was a good time to take a look back at the good, the bad, and the... wait, that came out this summer? Eugh. I'd repressed it from my memory.

  16. Comic-Con 2012 Cosplay That Really Impressed Us

    The sheer amount of costuming going on at Comic-Con is mind-boggling. Trying to come up with a "best of" list would be foolish (especially considering we weren't there to see them with our own eyes), not to mention insane, but we have come across several online that really impressed us. So here's our first roundup of Comic-Con cosplay pictures for your fan-gazing perusal.

  17. What If Christopher Nolan Made a James Bond Movie With Michael Fassbender? [Video]

    Consider the Following

    Just an idea to run by all of you, as we find ourselves in the midst of a very busy and exciting summer of gigantic movies, including Prometheus and the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises. Throw in a little Marvel magic, a little more Christopher Nolan, put the spotlight on Michael Fassbender, and choose a different franchise -- Bond. James Bond. Now, imagine a 007 origin story starring Fassbender, directed by Nolan. Does the trailer above come anywhere close? I'll let you make that call. Keep in mind: Daniel Craig might be vacating the Bond role... (via Movieline)

  18. Amanda Reviews Prometheus and Snow White and the Huntsman

    Review

    Editor’s note: we asked contributing writer Amanda LaPergola to write up a review on either Snow White and the Huntsman or Prometheus. We told her it did not matter which movie she chose, just as long as she got in a review within a few days of the movie’s opening. Clearly, we never learn our lesson.

  19. Now it Can Be Told: What David Said to The Engineer in Prometheus

    I'm going to work really hard not to drop any spoilers from Prometheus, but those who have seen the movie will remember a particular scene between David (Michael Fassbender) and a certain milk-skinned alien. Fassbender's speech is untranslated and indistinct, but an expert who worked on the movie confirmed that he said, "/ida hmanəm aɪ kja namṛtuh zdɛ:taha/…/ghʷɪvah-pjorn-ɪttham sas da:tṛ kredah/."

  20. Witness: The Pre-Prometheus Alien-Predator Marathon You Wish You’d Attended [Video]

    Audience Participation

    Since it had been over 30 years since Ridley Scott made a movie in the Alien franchise, which was later joined in unholy matrimony with the Predator franchise, a pre-Prometheus marathon of all those movies was in order, as well as an exercise in perspective. And that is just what Brad Hansen (creator of The Lion King Rises) and his fiancée Athena Stamos did. Complete with ratings and a final trip for 35 to the Hollywood Cinerama Dome, their marathon takes place in time lapse in the video above. Impressive, but how about a Lord of the Rings/J.R.R. Tolkien marathon ahead of The Hobbit? Do you accept this challenge? (via Crave Online) Previously in Prometheus
