Is director Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" a full-on prequel to his 1979 sci-fi horror masterpiece "Alien" or not?
That's the question movie fans have been asking for months and we're going to answer it for you, once and for all. The answer, friends, is yes ... basically.
Scott has been adamant that while "Prometheus" "carries the DNA" of "Alien," it is an original piece of science fiction that delves into everything from biotechnology to artificial intelligence to the origins (and possible destruction) of mankind itself. Get More »
Just how great is Ridley Scott's already-iconic trailer for "Prometheus?" It's so great that even if you take out all the visuals and replace them entirely with construction paper cutouts and drawings, it's still one of the most powerful trailers in recent memory.
How do we know this? Because someone actually did just that and we've got the results right here for you to marvel over. Get More »
Cameron Diaz might be best-known for her work in comedies like "There's Something About Mary," "Shrek" and, most recently, "Bad Teacher," but one would be remiss to forget she's held her own with edgier material too, including "Vanilla Sky" and "Any Given Sunday."
The film will be based upon author Cormac McCarthy's script and will feature Scott's "Prometheus" star Michael Fassbender in the lead as an attorney who muddies up his clean reputation and endangers his formerly respectable life by involving himself with cocaine trade. Get More »
The latest piece of the "Prometheus" puzzle has arrived online, and it's a must-see.
The new clip, "Happy Birthday David," is the sort of thing companies play internally to school employees on the dangers of sexual harassment; in this case, Michael Fassbender's android David explains who he is, what he does and why he's the perfect employee in what's likely a promo video for Weyland Corporation.
David blends in perfectly, he assures us, despite the fact that he's wearing the face of one of the sexiest men alive. He can also play chess with himself, he enjoys the delights of fresh flowers, and he can do things that humans "might find… distressing or unethical." Tell us more! Get More »
This June, director Ridley Scott is going to debut "Prometheus," the long awaited and eagerly anticipated sequel to his classic 1979 sci-fi/horror epic "Alien." It's a movie that fans have been hoping for and dreaming about for over three decades.
But once "Prometheus" arrives, the question becomes, what can Scott possibly do to top it?
Well, how about a movie starring Brad Pitt, Angelina and Jolie and Javier Bardem?
Yeah, that should just about do it.
The news is not officially official just yet, but fans across the various districts are already up in arms about it. The hashtag #WeWantGaryRoss made its way into today's trending topics on Twitter as a result of the story.
If it is true, and Ross will not return for the second film, we're left with a very burning question: Who could take his place?
Ross' will be big shoes to fill by whomever steps in, of course, so we thought we'd go ahead and size up some of the potential candidates for the job. Get More »
Sometimes the more you know about a movie, the less excited you are to see it. Explanation and revelation often has a way of taking all the fun out of a film that's been shrouded in secrecy. But unlike a lot of highly anticipated mystery flicks, the more we learn about "Prometheus," the more we can't wait for June 8 to finally get here.
Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic marks the A-list director's return to the genre that made him a household name with "Alien" and "Blade Runner." At this point, we don't care if "Prometheus" is an "Alien" prequel or not (it is, sort of, but whatever) — we just want to see it.
Take a look at a master filmmaker's brave new world.
In Greek mythology, Prometheus was a Titan who felt the wrath of Zeus for giving mankind the secret of fire. In modern day movie mythology, on the other hand, Ridley Scott is doing everything in his power to make sure mankind doesn't learn the secrets of his upcoming sci-fi epic "Prometheus."
Until now, that is. Get More »
We will most certainly indulge a new look at Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic.
Guy Pearce appears in an extended "Prometheus" teaser as technology mogul Peter Weyland (hmm!), a key speaker at a technology convention known as TED 2023. TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is described as a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, and Weyland has a rather radical one: he intends to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system.

The plot of Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' has been kept fairly secret since it's appeared on our radar like a looming planet in the sky. Is it a sequel to the seminal sci-fi film 'Alien'? Is it a prequel? Is it just in the same universe? What the frak?
Scott's spilled a bean or two recently, and while it's only a small detail, we're sucking it up like a hungry face-hugger. The first link between the two movies is Guy Pearce's character, a businessman who owns the ship Prometheus. Get More »
