After summer’s nail-biting space drama “Prometheus,” audiences were left asking a lot of pointed, intelligent questions regarding the fate of the characters. Or, there were those like me were going, “Huh. Really? But…? Huh.” But there is good news for both ends of the spectrum! A sequel to the prequel might currently be in the works, and aims to tie those open endings into a nice, neat gory space bow for us. Yet again, Sigourney Weaver in her underwear is not, reportedly, involved.
Sad news today. It has been confirmed that iconic action film director, Tony Scott, has committed suicide in Los Angeles. Brother to Ridley Scott and the second half of Scott Free Productions, Scott has put his special touch on a long list of great films. Whether as a producer of movies like “Prometheus,” or as the director of great iconic movies like “Top Gun” and “Enemy of the State,” his knack for delivering drama and intense action has deeply impacted Hollywood’s film industry.
He's been a special agent, a sex addict, a creepy android and Magneto; now Michael Fassbender will be taking on the role of a time-traveling assassin. Ubisoft, creator of the "Assassin's Creed" series of video games, is working on putting together a movie adaptation with Sony. Ubisoft has apparently demanded a huge amount of control over creative aspects like script approval and casting, so the deal seems to be going a bit slowly, but one thing is settled: Michael Fassbender will produce and play the lead.
It would be nice to say that June started off with a bang, but really last weekend's offerings were a little underwhelming this second weekend, however, was impressive indeed, thanks in most part to "Prometheus" and "Madagascar 3." "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" took the top spot over the weekend, even though "Prometheus" originally had it beat on Friday. The animated threequel brought in $59.6 million over the weekend, putting it about on pace to match the second movie in the franchise (which opened to about $63 million).
Summer is in full swing, and while the really big movies (i.e. "The Dark Knight Rises") won't be out until July, June still has some offerings for you. This weekend offers a thoughtful sci-fi thriller and, if that's too much for you, a goofy animated movie that works for kids and adults. "Prometheus" Rated R, 2 hrs. 04 mins. When the creator of "Alien" and the creator of "Lost" team up to make a sci-fi thriller, you know you're in for something special.
