Tony Scott, brother of Ridley and the director of innumerable brilliant movies, apparently committed suicide last night. Reports say he ‘leapt without hesitation’ from a bridge in San Pedro, LA. A note was said to be left at the 69 year-old’s office. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.

My review for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is up now waiting to be read. Firstly, check out this IMAX poster that has a very cool retro/70s look to it.

Review: Prometheus

I know nearly every review for the film will make mention of this so I’m going to get it out of the way at the start – Prometheus sees Ridley Scott’s long-awaited return to sci-fi, a genre where he made such stone-cold classics as Alien and Blade Runner. Can Prometheus possibly live up to such a lofty billing, or will it be fanboy crushing damp squib like a certain Phantom Menace? Read on and find out.

The release of Prometheus (here in the UK, at least) is only two days away. The first reviews are out and doing the rounds.

I’d love to offer up a brilliant insightful clip that defines the potential brilliance of Ridley Scott’s latest film, Prometheus, but all I have is a slight puff-piece on Charlize Theron’s character Meredith Vickers. Will that do? It’ll have to. Continue reading

News: Massively Spoilerific New Prometheus Poster

Posted in Movies, Poster with tags , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2012 by Bjorn Grainger

This not the new Prometheus poster, by the way. This is the teaser poster from before Christmas when the marketing for the film was still going for the subtle and mysterious, not the “let’s show them EVERYTHING so there’s no drama or surprises left when they go to the cinema to see it” we’re getting now. Maybe, just maybe, we’re not being shown everything and Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi will shock and surprise like his original Alien did. We live in hope.

This past weekend Channel Four, a broadcaster here in the UK, had the world exclusive first showing of the brand new three-minute long international trailer for Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated return to science fiction. Having watched the trailer air live, I have to admit I was a little disappointed that it was it was so full of apparent spoilers. It might be the film is so awesome that these reveals matter not a jot, but I thought I should warn you before you view it, just in case.
