'The Counselor' Trailer: 'No Country' for a Drug-Dealing Lawyer

'Prometheus 2' Gets A New Writer, Thank Jeebus

Fox Fox

They say that if you play with fire, you're going to get burned. Just ask the Greek god Prometheus. He played with fire and got burned to the tune of an eternity of birds eating his innards. Some might say there's an object lesson in that.

But Ridley Scott is apparently not one of those people, because according to Variety, the legendary director is proceeding full speed ahead with "Prometheus 2" despite widespread critical derision and fan disappointment with last year's "Prometheus."

At least he'll be doing it with a new writer. Get More »

Damon Lindelof Dishes on 'Prometheus 2'

Fox Fox

Last summer's sci-fi epic "Prometheus" wasn't exactly universally loved, but one thing has to be said for it: It certainly got people talking. And that talking is still going on, as one rumor or report after another about the upcoming sequel "Prometheus 2" seems to hit the internet every other day.

So why should today be any different? This week's big "Prometheus 2" news: Damon Lindelof has explained at length to Slash Film just why "Prometheus 2" isn't "Alien," why he's not writing it and why anybody who blames him for "Prometheus 2" sucking even before it exists is probably mental.

Hey guys, remember "Prometheus?" Last summer, everyone was totally psyched up for Ridley Scott's long-awaited prequel to his 1979 masterpiece "Alien." And then the movie actually came out and it was, like, the most confusing mess of nonsense ever put together.

Geez, the bruise on our forehead from all that slapping hasn't even healed yet! Get More »

Our 'Prometheus' Blu-ray Giveaway Is Otherworldly

Prometheus on Blu-ray 20th Century Fox

If you're like us, you really liked "Prometheus" but left the theater somewhat perplexed. Ridley Scott's sorta-prequel to "Alien" has gorgeous visuals, at least one squirm-inducing abortion sequence (shudder!) and first-rate performances but definitely leaves several questions regarding, well, almost everything unanswered.

At least a few of these blanks will be filled in now that one of the year's most imaginative yet maddening films is hitting Blu-ray and DVD. The home video release of "Prometheus" contains many behind-the-scenes featurettes and deleted scenes that dig deep into the film's convoluted sci-fi mythology and help paint a clearer picture of Scott's stunning vision ... while still retaining a sense of mystery, of course (you have to leave some things for the sequel!).
