Alien Covenant title card

A few months back, Ridley Scott announced that he would follow up his hit sci-fi film The Martian with Prometheus 2. Many had speculated that the sequel would have been the director’s next project, but he then confirmed that the film wouldn’t be called Prometheus 2; instead it would be titled Alien: Paradise Lost. The film put Neill Blomkamp’s planned Alien 5 in a very tough position, forcing the District 9 director to put his Alien film on hold.

Spectre scribe John Logan was recently brought in to do some of the rewrites for the Scott’s sequel, and at the same time a rumor popped up that Alien: Paradise Lost would be getting a new title. Now, Fox has announced that the film won’t be titled Prometheus 2 or Alien: Paradise Lost, but rather Alien: Covenant. More on the story below, including the official synopsis.

Showtime's Penny Dreadful

A new teaser trailer has been released for Penny Dreadful, the upcoming Showtime series from the filmmakers behind movies like Gladiator, American Beauty, and Skyfall, John Logan and Sam Mendes.

We’ve seen teasers for the show before, but this is the longest of them so far, and the most like an actual trailer. With the series set to premiere on May 11th a full trailer should be coming fairly soon, but for now this is our best look at the show, which is described as a “psychosexual horror” that brings together literary icons such as Frankenstein and his monster, Dorian Gray, and Count Dracula.

You can check out the new teaser trailer for Penny Dreadful below.

Sam Mendes directs Daniel Craig in Skyfall

After what seemed like a back-and-forth of yeses and noes, Sam Mendes has finalized a deal with Sony Pictures to direct the untitled James Bond 24 with Daniel Craig returning once again to star.

The announcement was made earlier today, and Skyfall screenplay writer John Logan will return to pen the script. The studio also announced October 23, 2015 release date for the UK and November 6, 2015 release dates for the US. That means that Bond 24 would be opening up against Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man. With those two pics opening up against each other, Disney will most likely switch the release date so that it won’t be in direct competition with such a heavy hitter.

Sam Mendes May Return To Direct ‘Bond 24’

Sam Mendes directs Daniel Craig in Skyfall

Quantum of Solace pretty much set the bar low on Bond film expectations, so its succeeding director could easily jump over it with the next Bond film. When Sam MendesSkyfall came out late last year, the bar immediately was raised sky high. Touted as one of the best Bond films in its 50-year span, Skyfall went on to be a box office hit and even a BAFTA award winner. But its sequel is still without a director.

In a rare move, however, The Daily Mail reports that Mendes could return to direct Bond 24. According to them, there is a 75 percent chance that he will come back for a second time. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have gone on to say that they would like to see the director return for a second time. Rumor was that the next two films on Daniel Craig‘s contract will have a connective storyline. Something that Mendes has said he doesn’t really look forward to, which explained his hesitancy to come back, and Craig has denied.

Daniel Craig Says It’s ‘Impossible’ To Do A James Bond Two-Parter

Everyone who worked on Skyfall must be pleased with the results because EON productions has already commissioned a Bond 24 and Bond 25. We previously reported that the upcoming two Bond films would have a cohesive story, kind of like how Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace were linked. But it appears that rumor is untrue, as Daniel Craig has come out saying that it is “impossible to do a two-parter.”

In the initial report, Skyfall scribe John Logan presented a draft for a story that would play out over the course of two films. This would be the first time something like this would happen in the Bond franchise. The report also confirmed that Craig would return for at least two more Bond films.

John Logan, the screenwriter who penned the latest entry in the James Bond series, Skyfall, has been confirmed as the writer for the next two installments as well.

Logan is said to have presented a story arc to producers that would play out over the course of the two movies, and that they liked it enough to immediately set him off to work on them. It’s also said that star Daniel Craig will be back for at least two more turns as Bond (after that is yet to be decided), so this may just be the grand finale they’ve been looking for to close out Craig and move on to the next if need be.

Russell Crowe

A movie about the story of Noah and his ark from Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky has been floating around out there for a while now, but it’s been taking its time getting moving forward.

Nothing is official as of yet, but Aronofsky has shared who he would like to cast in his movie, which is simply titled Noah. According to sources, the director wants to bring in none other than Russell Crowe to play Noah in the biblical epic.

Aronofsky also wants to acquire the talents of The Grey star Liam Neeson for another role in the movie.

James Bond Is Saved; 23rd Movie Gets A Release Date From MGM With Daniel Craig Set To Return

At one point in time, things were so dire with MGM that many worried if both Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and the next installment in the James Bond franchise — two of the biggest movies on the horizon — would ever even get made.

While The Hobbit has mostly kept its head above water, back in April it was reported that the latest James Bond, currently known only as Bond 23, would be put on hold indefinitely. This also branched out to the likelihood that popular star Daniel Craig might not ever play the role again.

But lately, MGM has been finding ways to figure things out, and many other studios have been coming to them to help get these anticipated movies made. Warner Brothers has stepped up big time, swallowing almost all of the Hobbit financial needs, and now MGM is confident enough to give Mr. Bond an official release date.
