Hoo boy. Ridley Scott has announced that Alien: Covenant isn’t the only Alien prequel he hasin the works. The director says he’s making two additional movies which will link up 2012’s Prometheus to the original Alien film, which he made in 1979.
First it was Prometheus 2, and then Alien: Paradise Lost. Now, Ridley Scott’s followup to Prometheus apparently has a new name: Alien: Covenant.
Last week, word broke that Neil Blomkamp’s Alien 5 was being put on hold due to ongoing work while Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2 is being developed. That’s a shame, but if Fox looks at what Marvel’s been doing, they can probably have their cake and eat it too.
Somehow, the news that Ridley Scott wants to make three Prometheus sequels is not the most ridiculous Prometheus news this week. Scott himself announced the sequel to the semi-Alien-prequel will now be named Alien: Paradise Lost—which is super-strange given that Scott literally said Prometheus 2 has nothing to do with…
When Ridley Scott’s Prometheus hit theaters, it was polarizing for a bunch of reasons. Some of the biggest were its connections to Alien, which created more questions than they answered.
Of the umpteen or so upcoming movies Ridley Scott has said he’s directing, it turns out that Prometheus 2 is at the top of the list. At the recent NASA/The Martian event, the director announced he is already currently scouting locations for the sequel, presumably for Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender’s severed head…
While the first Prometheus definitely opened the door to a sequel, very few walked out actually thinking it was going to happen. The 2012 film was a middling financial and critical success so though there was talk of a follow-up, it seemed likely the project would fade away and die. It has now risen from the dead.
In an editing exercise, film student Job Willins has taken Ridley Scott’s films Alien and Prometheus into a single film called Derelict. The end result is pretty good, and well worth watching.
I was 9 in 1993 when the original Jurassic Park came out and it holds a special place in my heart as a genuine classic family movie I was able to see during its original run, and at just the right age to be fully captivated by all its fear and wonder.
Is Jennifer Lawrence going to space? Is Chris Pratt going ... back to space? A new report has the duo in talks to head up the cast of Passengers, with Imitation Game director Morton Tyldum at the helm.
While Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender's severed head journey through the cosmos, Sir Ridley Scott is hard at work at chronicling their adventures in his script for Prometheus 2. And now he's dropped a fascinating bombshell about the movie: It's going to have a new type of alien we've never seen before.
Lately, every movie seems to be a sequel or reboot — but it doesn't stop there. Because the movie industry is increasingly dependent on creating franchises, we're seeing some bastardized forms, that are just designed to keep franchises alive. Here are six newfangled types of movies that we're already tired of.
When Noomi Rapace and the severed head of Michael Fassbeder resume their interstellar adventures in Prometheus 2, they can take comfort in the fact that they won't be bothered by any more xenomorphs. Ridley Scott says the sequel to his 2012 quasi-prequel to Alien will be completely devoid of Aliens. Yay?
In science fiction movies and TV shows, intelligent aliens are usually the same basic shape as humans: two arms, two legs and a head. But why would creatures that evolved on a completely different planet look so similar to us? We asked some experts, and they told us the most likely explanations for humanoid aliens.

It's the middle of summer movie season. These days, that means tons of movies, designed to bring in the broadest audience to justify their $100 million-plus budget.

Ridley Scott confirmed months ago that the script to Prometheus 2 was in the bag. Filming is slated to begin this fall, with a projected release date of March 2016. Now, in unsurprising but auspicious news, Michael Fassbender has confirmed he's "doing a sequel," presumable reprising his role as David (Davids?).
The first issue of Dark Horse's Prometheus #1 comic isn't due until September 10th of this year, but you can get an exclusive sneak preview right here! It seems a group has sent to LV- 223 to investigate what happened to the crew of the Prometheus, but it's staffed by a much, much smarter group of scientists.
