The first trailer has dropped for Ridley Scott´s Alien Covenant. Check it out below.
Back in November 2014 I first wrote about this drama series TABOO , which was set to be produced by Ridley Scott , and star Tom Hardy. At that point my interest was not at all that big, as I said “I might watch it “. Now the eight episode series has released its first trailer, and I must say my interest is slightly elevated. Have a look :
Set in 1813, “Taboo” is based on an original story by Hardy and his father, Chips Hardy ( yes , his name is Chips ) . Hardy has the lead role of “James Keziah Delaney,” an adventurer who returns from Africa with 14 ill-gotten diamonds looking for vengeance after the death of his father ( Chips ? ). Refusing to sell the family business to the East India Company, he sets out to build his own trade and shipping empire and finds himself playing a very dangerous game ( Monopoly for realz )
Taboo is still in production and will not be out until at least 2017, when it will be shown on FX. It is the first major production for Tom Hardy’s company Hardy Son & Baker ( wonder why it wasn’t Hardy Son & Chips )
What did you think of the trailer ? Let me know by posting me an actual letter. Or do the lazy thing and comment below.
Jean-Claude Van Damme is set to star in an upcoming comedy pilot for Amazon where he will play a fictionalized version of himself working as a black ops operative. Expendables writer Dave Callaham is attached to write the script, but let’s not doom the project just yet. JCVD isn’t a stranger to comedy, and he has shown in the past that he more than comfortable making fun of himself.
Callaham will also act as executive producer, alongside big names Ridley Scott and David Zucker, via Scott’s production company Scott Free.
The reported title of the show : Jean-Claude Van Johnson !!! I love it! Only Jean-Claude Van Norris could have been better than that.
I’ve always liked Van Damme, and I hope this project is a success for him. Still waiting on that rated R director’s cut of Streetfighter (1994). Make it happen !!
Following yesterday’s video which introduced the crew , Fox ( fuckers ) has released the trailer for director Ridley Scott’s science fiction action adventure The Martian.
-During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return.-

I read online that the book is actually very humourous. And it looks like Ridley Scott has kept to that. At least from watching this video anyway. The film has a pretty good cast with Matt Damon , Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig , Kate Mara, Michael Pena , Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor , Donald Glover , and in a very small role, almost an extra really , is some Norwegian guy which, if you read Norwegian headlines is the star of the film 🙂
So, a 90 seconds TV spot….. Isnt that a trailer ?
From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure Exodus: Gods and Kings, the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. sing state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton in arabic face), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
Exodus: Gods and Kings opens in theaters on December 12.
The Prometheus sequel is reportedly going to debut an entirely new extraterrestrial to the world of Alien.
Ridley Scott did an interview with The Australian, where the Alien Godfather teased an entirely new species of alien in his eventual Prometheus sequel.
“The alien’s real which is why it’s probably one of the scariest monsters in film history,” Scott told the news site. “So with Prometheus 2, what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act.”
Scott also mentioned that he is staying away from any species used in past Aliens films, going so far as to say, “If I see one more dragon I’m going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons.” Thats great Scott. I wish someone had told you that the Alien and connection to the first film was the only reason i wanted to see Prometheus in the first place. And I paid to do so. When the sequel comes out I will not. I will download it illegally , watch it, then rip it a new one. Fuck you old man.
A release date for Prometheus 2 has not been set, though it is rumored to land in theaters sometime in 2016. Scott said that the script is finished, describing it as “really good.”
What else would he say really??
No word yet on the full title for the film, but I’m sticking with “Noomi and Heads Excellent Adventure” for now.
So yeah, Tom Hardy will be doing an eight-episode series for FX called “Taboo.” Ridley Scott is producing and the series is slated to debut in mid-2016.
