“The crew of a colony ship, bound for a remote planet, discover an uncharted paradise with a threat beyond their imagination, and must attempt a harrowing escape.”

Alien: Covenant does its predecessors proud…for the most part. While the film was overly amazing, at the end of it, it’s clear that it suffers from some continuity issues. But I’ll get to that in a minute because overall, they don’t affect the enjoyment of this film at all.

The Perfect Wolverine Film | Review of ‘Logan’

“In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.”

—IMDB

There’s simply no limit to the beauty this film has wrapped in all the swearing and gritty glory that defines Wolverine’s character and this film. Wolverine has not had an easy life, he has gone through so much and the writers knew just how to capitalize on the character, the Wolverine, and evolve the story for him. They took a risk, and they ended the story properly, they ended it in such a way that they gave closure to the character and his legacy in the X-Men.

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus wasn’t exactly the movie we were all hoping it would be, getting a less-than-stellar response from critics and ultimately failing to make back its budget at the domestic box office, but thanks to a solid performance overseas a Prometheus 2 has been pretty much guaranteed. While it hasn’t been made official yet, it’s rumored that the Untitled Ridley Scott Project that 20th Century Fox has set to come out on March 2016 will be a follow-up to the director’s most recent space epic, and now news has come that the studio has found someone to pen a new script for the project. According to The Wrap, screenwriter Michael Green has come aboard to do a rewrite of the existing draft that was put together by Transcendence writer Jack Paglen[…]

Blade Runner Sequel Coming From Green Lantern Screenwriter


By: Nick Venable

image “Replicants Screenwriters are like any other machine – they’re either a benefit or a hazard. If they’re a benefit, it’s not my problem.” That’s a paraphrased quote from Rick Deckard, the main character in Ridley Scott’s seminal 1982 sci-fi thriller Blade Runner. He was actually talking about the skin-job replicants that the titular Blade Runners are meant to retire, which just means killing them really. And while I’m not saying that bad screenwriters should be killed, I’m perfectly fine with some of them retiring. Which brings us to the long-proposed Blade Runner sequel, which The Wrap reports, has finally landed its screenwriter in Michael Green, who was one of the five writers involved in the fairly awful screenplay for Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern two years ago.

Last year he wrote several episodes for the increasingly disappointing ABC found-footage horror The River . Besides a Flash script he wrote for DC, he’s written for such TV shows as Smallville, Everwood and Kings. Is this really the guy that is going to take us back (or forward) to the gorgeous dystopia that was (will be) Los Angeles? Sure, the original film’s screenwriters Hampton Fancher and David Peoples weren’t established when they pounded out their script, but anything could happen in the ‘80s.  Cinema is an entirely different behemoth now.

Scott is set to come back and direct the film, which will be produced through Alcon Entertainment and Scott Free. It isn’t clear yet whether it will be a sequel or a prequel, but The Wrap’s sources say it will take place years after the first film’s ending. The story also says Scott is counting on Harrison Ford to come back for the Rick Deckard role, which indicates a sequel as I’m having a hard time understanding how that could even happen if the movie turned out to be a prequel. And we know that Sean Young is willing to reprise herRachael role. And I’m pretty sure Rutger Hauer would come back in no time.

The new film would probably feature a lot less smoking, as apparently 2019 L.A. didn’t get the smoking ban memo. I could sit here all day halfway bemoaning this decision, but I’m just one Blade Runner fan out of millions.
