Ridley Scott

  1. Sci-Fi Thriller Morgan Casts Kate Mara as Its Star

    But will she terminate, or be terminated?

    In sci-fi movie news, it seems we'll have another member of the Scott family to deal with. Ridley Scott's son, Luke Scott, is making his feature film directorial debut with a sci-fi thriller Morgan, written by Seth Owen and, as was announced today, starring House of Cards and Fantastic Four alum, Kate Mara.

  2. Officially Official: Harrison Ford Will Star In The Blade Runner Sequel, So I Guess He’s Not a Replicant

    It also picks up a new director who isn't Ridley Scott.

    Either that or he's a really well-crafted one that ages. We should probably give him the test anyway, just to be sure.

  3. Ripley & Her Xenomorph Space Suit Feature in Neill Blomkamp’s Drool-Worthy Alien Concept Art

    I'll take ten.

    Was District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp working on an Alien movie? Some new concept art reveals he just might have been. Now whether or not he was getting paid for it is another story...

  4. Dammit, America: Exodus Topped the Box Office This Weekend Despite Awfulness

    :/

    This weekend Exodus: Gods and Kings topped the box office. It overcame The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1. Perhaps most disconcerting of all is that according to Variety it "played particularly well to hispanic and African-American moviegoers," despite the movie's infamous whitewashing.

  5. Review: The Whitewashing Isn’t The Only Terrible Thing About Exodus: Gods And Kings

    Scott's epic mashup of camp and prestige fails to succeed.

    The movie almost reaches the point of "so bad its good" when focusing on the villains; but ultimately, Exodus: Gods and Kings fails to go far enough with old-fashioned cheese, so it remains a movie so bad it is just bad. So bad, it is one of the worst movies of 2014.

  6. Christian Bale Defends Ridley Scott’s Exodus Whitewashing, Doesn’t Think It’s Weird He’s Playing Moses

    Let the whitesplaining continue

    The frustration around Exodus' puzzlingly, absurdly white cast has been ongoing since, well, we all first realized how thoroughly whitewashed Ridley Scott had cast it. Well, let it continue further! On the heels of Scott's multiple unsatisfying explanations of why he couldn't/wouldn't cast brown people comes Christian Bale.

  7. Ridley Scott Won’t Be Directing Blade Runner 2

    But we will have Harrison Ford and a female protagonist, sooooo...

    In the same interview with Variety in which Ridley Scott writes off the racism in Exodus as a budgetary concern, he also says that he will no longer be directing the Blade Runner sequel. Harrison Ford, however, is still attached to return as Deckard.

  8. Ridley Scott Blames Lack of Diversity in Exodus on Needing Money

    Women are too hard to animate, brown people are too expensive to make films about.

    There are polite and considerate ways to say that in the face of a modern age of Biblical scholarship and historical study, the pressures of a racist Hollywood system forced you to cast only white people in the lead roles of a movie about a known era of Middle Eastern history. This is not one of them.

  9. The Hubris! Ridley Scott Producing 2001: A Space Odyssey Sequel

    It's going to go 100% failure in 72 hours.

    Last month Syfy's new programming chief promised that the network would be returning to its roots by attempting to recapture the network's pre-name-change "serious tone," and, well, attempting a sequel to one of the most iconic films ever is one way to do that, I guess. Memories of shark-based weather phenomena fading...fading...

  10. Sebastian Stan’s Agent Finally Got Him a Post-Winter Soldier Gig

    Tumblr, pay attention: Sebastian Stan, who made everyone lose their damn minds in The Winter Soldier and then leveraged his popularity to secure roles in exactly one weird-sounding indie sports comedy, is finally going to be in another (non-Marvel) movie that you'll actually be able to see on the big screen. Even better: The amazing, Oscar-nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor (who, unlike Stan, is actually in things), has been added to the cast as well.

  11. Sigourney Weaver on the Legacy of Ellen Ripley, Women in Games, and Her Return in Alien: Isolation

    Be my mom. Please. (Sorry, mom.)

    A magical thing happened a few months ago. I spoke with Sigourney Weaver on the phone. I'm not fully recovered. Find out what the actress, soon to be heard reprising her Ellen Ripley role in the video game Alien: Isolation, had to say about women in film, women in games, her sci-fi legacy, and Ripley's daughter.

  14. 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.

  15. Things We Saw Today: Doctor Doom As an ’80s Pop Sensation

    Nice shades.

    Rocky Davies also did 80s album covers for the Joker, the Xenomoprh, and Shredder. "You know, like Doom tried to do some good PR and produce an upbeat pop album," says the artist. "It has hits like 'Latveria, Why Latveria?' and 'Doom Done Did It Again' and 'Four Coffins' and 'Chrome Dome.'"

  16. Harrison Ford Approached to Film Blade Runner Sequel

    It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

    It's unusual for a movie company to just come right out and say they're wooing a certain actor before the deal is set, but that's just what Alcon Entertainment, makers of a putative Blade Runner sequel (set decades after the first film), have done.

  17. Ridley Scott and HBO Are Basically Doing Ancient Aliens: The Drama

    It Came From Outer Space

    Everything's coming up Biblical/Egyptian history nowadays. There's Noah, Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings, Travis Beacham's Hieroglyph, Paramount and MGM's Ben-Hur remake, the History Channel's The Bible miniseries (you know, the one with hunky Jesus), and Fox's just-announced Jesus origin story miniseries. But you know what all of those are lacking? Aliens. Enter HBO.

  19. The Naked Gun, Murder on the Orient Express Are Getting Remakes

    Oh Hollywood

    It might be because my brain's in Friday mode, but I'm having a tough time imagining two films that are more polar opposites than The Naked Gun and Murder on the Orient Express. One is a classic film veritably filled with cinematic legends bringing their Oscar-worthy talents to the table. And the other is based on an Agatha Christie novel. But today the two very different films have something in common: They're being run through Hollywood's remake machine.
