The VR (Virtual Reality) movement is hot and heavy right now with so many different VR Headsets available on the market from many different companies.

Ridley Scott is now getting into the VR world with his upcoming new film ‘Alien: Covenant‘, which we saw the first trailer to that recently.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Ridley Scott has decided that as long as he’s getting such great buzz for ‘The Martian‘ and has all the press attention he could want, why not use it to tease the die-hard ‘Alien‘ fans at what is next to come in the franchise? Instead of months of calling the film a ‘Prometheus‘ sequel, we OFFICIALLY have a title – ‘Alien: Covenant‘ and we have a little more on the synopsis front, too.

Get ready for a wicked space adventure starring everyone’s mathematic brain-child, Matt Damon when ‘The Martian‘ lands in theaters on October 2, 2015! The film is based on a top-selling novel by Andy Weir and brought to amazingly realistic life by none other than master, legendary and beyond talented Ridley Scott (‘Alien‘, ‘Blade Runner‘).

The news is full of examples of a person overcoming what appear to be insurmountable odds. It’s no surprise that art imitates life in this vein. Granted the particular set of circumstances in this film have yet to be duplicated in reality, but it’s only a matter of time. I’m talking about the next Matt Damon vehicle, ‘The Martian‘.

Hi Bryan Here…..

National Geographic Channel has teamed with Tony and Ridley Scott to produce a two-hour documentary based on ‘Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever’ by Bill O’ Reilly.  The documentary, set to begin production in the spring for an early 2013 premiere globally on the National Geographic Channel, will keep the fast pace of the book, described as a historical thriller with a John Grisham-style narrative about the 1865 murder of President Abraham Lincoln and the furious manhunt for his killer.

Ridley Scott talks Alien Prequel…Gonna Be Hardcore

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 3rd, 2010

In a recent interview with Ridley Scott (director of the first Alien movie and Gladiator), he said concerning the two Alien Prequels “will be really nasty and tough to watch.”   He went on to say “We are talking about Gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet.”

He also revealed the film will explore the origin of the “Space Jockey” by saying…

“I sat thinking about the franchise, which now has died on the road somewhere way back and lying in the dust, and thought what I should do is go back. In the first ‘Alien’, when John Hurt climbed up and over the top of the rise. There was a massive giant lying in a chair.  The chair was either a form of engine or some piece of technology and I always thought no one has ever asked who was the space jockey?”

Ridley is set to direct the two prequels as of now.

Now I have a hardcore love for all the Alien films.  One of the first films I remember seeing besides E.T. was Aliens in the theater.  My dad took me to see it and I remember loving every bit of and how much it scared me.  I was an Alien fan for life.  Saying that I like all the Alien films but not as much as the first two.  It is good to see the original director come back and make a hardcore movie.  Now i wish it was not a prequel, but more of a re-imagining.  To be honest, most prequels are SHIT.  Just look at the Star Wars prequels.  And hopefully Ridley Scott will redeem himself from his recent turd effort of Robin Hood.

4K UHD Review: Alien: Covenant!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 25th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

We live in a time where all of our favorite films and television programs from decades ago are getting sequels, rebooted, and remade. The ALIEN franchise that we have all come to love over the years has had its share of revamps. Luckily, the original filmmaker Ridley Scott, who made ALIEN back in 1979 came back a few years ago and made an early sequel to the franchise with PROMETHEUS. Clearly, Scott isn’t done telling stories in this horrifying universe, and we now have a sequel with ALIEN: COVENANT, which breathes new life into this stale franchise and promises more sequels and even more scares. What we loved about the original ALIEN is certainly present in a lot of COVENANT.

Alien: Covenant is Coming to 4K and Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Well well well. It’s nowhere near game over man with the Alien franchise or their home video releases. Alien: Covenant is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD on August 15th with an earlier Digital release on August 1st. In addition to the mass roll out of these releases, there will also be Limited Edition Exclusives available at certain retailers. Luckily, there won’t be any bonus features specific to the different retailers like they’ve annoyingly done in the past. These exclusives are basically package-only differences, which you can read about below. It looks like Dolby Atmos will be the preferred audio format along with a ton of extras included. I can’t wait to watch this again.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #4!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 23rd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

maxresdefault

We’ve all had or been in the vicinity of someone having a complete meltdown. We never want to have one ourselves, because our dignity goes right out the window and we say and do things we regret. They’re just a part of life, and we can control it with a variety of medicine, breathing techniques, and various other forms of activity. Hopefully, we would have our meltdowns in the privacy of our own homes or in front of a small group of friends. We would never want to turn into Beast Mode in a public space.

Review #2 of ‘Alien Covenant’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 22nd, 2017

Dan M., here….

Alien-Covenant-Teaser-Trailer-020

A crew gets a distress signal from a planet. Crew lands on that seemingly abandoned planet. Planet has aliens. Aliens infect or attack humans. A survivor or two must fight said alien to get off the planet. Rinse and repeat. That isn’t to say the Alien: Covenant is a bad movie, it really isn’t but as far as the broad strokes are concerned it is a paint by numbers Alien movie. A marked improvement from Prometheus because it has better characters but the formula to this point is getting a bit stale for me. I didn’t hate this movie. I know it sounds like I did but really I’m just ready for it to evolve a bit more.

There is a new trailer for Ridley Scott’sAlien: Covenant‘ movie, which is quickly becoming my most anticipated film of the year. Scott was the first guy who brought us ‘Alien’ back in the late 70s, and now he’s back with a new chapter again. The cast is fantastic and this new trailer just looks amazing. I think I want to become an Alien.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Trailer is Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 26th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

still1

This holiday weekend, we were not only given food, gifts, love, kisses, and hugs; but we also received a different type of hug. We got a new face hugger in the ‘Alien: Covenant‘ trailer. Yes, a new ‘Alien‘ film is coming on May 19th, 2017 and is directed by the Ridley Scott, who gave us the original ‘Alien’ film. This is a red band trailer and is all sorts of scary and wonderful. This is the ‘Alien’ movie we’ve been looking for over the past couple of decades, and judging by this trailer alone, this looks to deliver. I really can’t wait to see if anyone in space can hear me scream again.
