Could This Be Prometheus Plot?

There have been all kinds of rumors about what exactly Ridley Scott's new sci-fi epic Prometheus is about. And now it seems like we may have an answer.

io9 has received what is allegedly the official plotline of Prometheus, which Scott is directing now in London from a script by Lost guru Damon Lindelof. The site questions the authenticity of the synopsis, and it's actually pretty crappily written, but there's reason to believe that it could have at least some truth to it.

Spoiler after the Jump...

Earth. Year 2058.
Archaeological digs in Africa reveal alien artifacts that humans were genetically engineered by a advanced alien race (space jockeys). These "Alien Gods" also terraformed Earth in order to make it habitable for their human creations. Amongst finds are coordinates to the Alien God's home-world, to Paradise. Months later the Weyland Corp launch the spaceship PROMETHEUS and his crew, into deep space to make first contact. Thanks to faster than light travel a few years later the PROMETHEUS enters the Zeta Riticuli star system. Humans are greeted by their makers, then transported further into space to a scary yet fascinating world. The Alien Gods are proud of their "children", their first creation to reach such levels of intelligence.


As a reward they share bits of their astonishing bio-based technologies with the humans. But for one crew member of the Prometheus it's not enough. In a treacherous act he steals the "bio-source code" to Terraforming, a technology at the origin of all Gods' power, that could make humans equal to the gods. The Alien Gods may be scientists but are also ruthless conquerors, destroyers of worlds who will not accept humans as equals. They unleash on the escaping human crew their favorite bio-weapon, a creature used to "clean up" worlds before colonization. But something goes wrong in the process and humans manage to turn the bio-weapon against their makers. Giving birth to a smarter, nastier, bigger breed of gut eating creatures. Creatures that will be the demise of Paradise. What's left of the Prometheus crew manages to escape the doomed planet.

On their trail a survivor Alien God in very familiar ship with one ultimate mission. Bring the wrath of the Gods to Earth.

If that sounds like it could almost be a prequel to Alien, well, that's correct. Prometheus started life as an Alien prequel, but once Lindelof came on board he turned the script into something else—although he has said recently that the two are connected.

Meanwhile Scott himself showed up this week at an event called CineEurope to talk about the film, along with stars Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) and Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). Scott said that the movie was originally inspired by his desire to explore the background and fate of the dead "space jockey" being glimpsed in the first Alien film.

He added that the title referred to a ship "sent from earth by an all-powerful corporation of the kind familiar to fans of the Alien franchise," adding, "NASA and the Vatican agree that is almost mathematically impossible that we can be where we are today without there being a little help along the way. That's what we're looking at (in the film), at some of Erich von Daniken's (Chariots of the Gods) ideas of how did we humans come about."

If you put together Scott's remarks with that rumored synopsis above, that storyline sounds more and more plausible—although hopefully Lindelof did a better job with the script that whoever summed it up above.

Do you like what you're hearing about Prometheus? Does this sound like a cool storyline or a half-baked Alien prequel?

Dwayne Johnson's Roadblock To Play A Major Role In Upcoming G.I. Joe Sequel

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has come forward to explain his intentions behind the Jon M. Chu directed sequel G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes. Dwayne Johnson, also known to some as "The Rock", recently joined this new adventure as Roadblock. As Lorenzo di Bonaventura tells it, this new addition to theatrical franchise will be one of the movie's two lead characters.


"It's a full-on lead role. In a way, he and Snake-Eyes, their stories are really dynamic and very important. (Dwayne Johnson) is such a great character to have in 'G.I. Joe 2.' It's an amazing combination. We would not be very good if we didn't fully utilize him, so he's going to have a lot of things to do. It is an ensemble movie, so you have other characters certainly playing it out."


Lorenzo di Bonaventura then went onto explain that this will essentially be a sequel tailored to the ninja fan.

"The ninja fans are going to love it. There's a tremendous amount of it. What's interesting is, we both have that going on in the Snake-Eyes story, but we've found a way to bring that element into the Joes' story. I think anybody who's a fan of dark, in the middle of the night [action with] a dangerous foe arriving, this is a movie for you."

The Dark Knight Rises Footage Appears Online

When it comes to Christopher Nolan films, everything's done under the radar. He's the Ethan Hunt of directors, so whenever there's a leaked photo or video we're like moths to a flame. Some amateur footage has surfaced from The Dark Knight Rises that features Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale, who look mighty comfortable together.

The scene takes place on a rainy day, which it really isn't judging from the T-shirt wearing crew members on the street. From the looks of it, Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne are on a joint mission. Bruce knocks on the door of a house but gets no answer, so Selina walks up and whisks him away.

We might be over-romanticizing the scene just a tad, but Selina does grab his hand. We're not sure who's supposed to be behind that door or why Bruce wants to talk to them, because we're more interested in the dynamic between him and Selina.

Spike Lee Explains Why He Has Been Away From Hollywood

Spike Lee is not feeling the love from Hollywood’s money men.

“I haven’t made a feature film in three years,” 

Lee has lately focused on documentary work with two films about post-Katrina New Orleans for HBO. But he had designs on biopics about Jackie Robinson – the Brooklyn Dodgers slugger who broke baseball’s color line – and soul icon James Brown. And he was in discussions a while back for a sequel to thriller Inside Man, which starred Denzel Washington, Clive Owen and Jodie Foster. But he's been unable to secure financing.

Inside Man was my most successful film,” he said, adding that he had Washington and Foster on board for the sequel. “But we can’t get the sequel made. And one thing Hollywood does well is sequels. The film’s not getting made. We tired many times. It’s not going to happen.”

Lee’s comments came during a free-wheeling Q&A session with public television’s Charlie Rose at PromaxBDA, the annual marketing, branding and design conference here. Lee received the organizations lifetime achievement award for his work in film and television, including a series of groundbreaking commercials for Nike that featured Michael Jordan and Lee as Mars Blackmon, the character he played in his 1986 breakthrough film She’s Gotta Have It.

“First of all, what in this world does not revolve around money? But money is a big part of film, unlike a lot of other art forms.”

Lee wore a tan seersucker jacket over a T-shirt and a straw pork pie hat. And when Rose’s cell phone rang at the beginning of the presentation, Lee jumped from his seat as the crowd in the New York Hilton ballroom cheered him on.

“I just want you to know,” said Lee, as he walked to the front of the stage. “On my sets, when the camera is rolling and the phone rings: $50.”

“Will you take $5?” asked Rose, rising from his chair and fishing in his front pockets.

“I’ll let you slide,” Lee laughed. (Later in the presentation, Rose’s phone rang a second time. “I owe you $100,” said a contrite Rose. It did not ring a third time.)

Lee – whose cinematic heroes include Akira Kurosawa, Billy Wilder, Elia Kazan, Federico Fellini and Martin Scorsese – has never won an Academy Award. But he likened Academy voters to basketball referees who attempt to make amends for a bad call with what is known in the sports world as a subsequent “make-up call.”

By way of some examples of this theory, Lee offered Al Pacino and Denzel Washington. Pacino turned in numerous Oscar-worthy performances in Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico, The Godfather, The Godfather II, etc. But he won his only Oscar for Scent of a Woman. Washington did not win a best actor trophy for Lee’s Malcolm X, though he was nominated. He received his best actor trophy nearly 10 years later for Training Day.

“In 1989, Do the Right Thing was not even nominated [for best picture],” said Lee, with some mock outrage. “What film won best picture in 1989? Driving Miss Mother F---ing Daisy! That’s why [Oscars] don’t matter,” said Lee. “Because 20 years later, who’s watching Driving Miss Daisy?”

(Lee was nominated for best original screenplay for Do the Right Thing, though he didn't win. And in 1999, the film was selected by the U.S. Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry.)
“There are many times in history where the best work does not get awarded," he said. "And I’m not even talking about my own work. So that’s why [the Oscars] don’t matter.”

On acting in his own films:


“I don’t like acting; not in front of the camera. The only reason I was in She’s Gotta Have It is because we couldn’t afford anybody else. But with the success of Mars Blackmon, I said, ‘I’ll continue to do it.’ At the same time, it was not something I enjoyed doing. Once it got to point where it wouldn’t hurt [the film] if I weren’t in it I [stopped].”

On actors in general:

“You’re out there buck-naked and that is hard. The reason why actors are f---ed up; can you imagine having a job where someone is, ‘No, no, no. Your butt’s too big. Your heads to big. You’re too skinny. Your nose is to big?'”

Francis Ford Coppola To Returns To Comic-Con

Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola will be attending the San Diego Comic-Con to present his new film Twixt on Saturday, July 23. Here's the press release:

Francis Ford Coppola will be presenting portions of his upcoming film TWIXT at a panel discussion on Saturday, July 23 at Hall H. TWIXT stars Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, and Ben Chaplin.

Coppola describes the film as, “one part Gothic romance, one part personal film, and one part the kind of horror film that began my career.”

Coppola has a unique new approach to the presentation of the film that will incorporate live music by acclaimed independent performance artist Dan Deacon. Deacon will attend Comic-Con with Coppola to help demonstrate the interactive experience of the film. The film incorporates both 2-D and 3-D elements.

Like his most recent films, TWIXT follows three self-imposed mandates that Coppola requires in all of his new work: be his own original story and screenplay, have some personal element, and be self-financed. This particular story came to Coppola during a vivid dream he had while on a trip to Istanbul and is inspired by the writings of Edgar Allen Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne. The film also brings Coppola back to his horror roots that began during his apprenticeship with Roger Corman.

On attending Comic-Con Coppola says, “I fondly recall meeting the Comic-Con audience years ago when I brought them my DRACULA film. That experience made me not want to miss this chance to return with TWIXT."

ABOUT TWIXT
A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He's unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.

Matterhorn Ride Being Developed Into A Film

Disney is developing an adventure movie project inspired by the Matterhorn ride and has set Jason Dean Hall to pen the script. Justin Springer (Tron Legacy, Prom) is producing the project, which has a working title of The Hill.

The Matterhorn, also known as the Matterhorn Bobsleds, is part of Disneyland’s Fantasyland section.

Opened June 1959, the elaborate ride was inspired by Walt Disney's desire for a toboggan-themed roller coaster as well as thoughts he had after an extended trip to Switzerland, the site of the famed mountain. The ride, a centerpiece of the park, was refurbished in 1978, with one of the upgrades being the addition of three automatronic Abominable Snowmen (aka Yetis) who growl at riders.

The idea behind The Hill is to do a thrilling, fast-paced movie centering on five young adventure seekers who, for mysterious reasons, are called to the top of the mountain and encounter a Yetis on the journey down.

Adapting Disney rides into film franchises is a priority for the company. Pirates of the Caribbean is the most successful of the rides-turned-movies, generating $3.7 billion worldwide over four films. A movie was made out of the Haunted Mansion, and another is being developed with Guillermo del Toro producing. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a Disney film, then a theme park ride, and is now being rebooted as a David Fincher directing vehicle. The ultimate theme park movie might be Disney's Magic Kingdom, which is set entirely in the park. That project is being developed by writer Michael Chabon and director Jon Favreau.

Bridesmaids To Surpass Knocked Up At The BoxOffice

With hits like The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad, producer-director Judd Apatow has spent the past decade as Hollywood's king of guy humor. But the Apatow-produced, female-driven comedy Bridesmaids is on track to pass Knocked Up on Wednesday night as the highest-grossing domestic movie of Apatow's career.

That’s not all. Projections show that by Sunday or Monday, Universal's Bridesmaids -- directed by Paul Feig -- will supplant Sex and the City as the top R-rated female comedy of all time domestically.

Through Tuesday, Bridesmaids' North America gross was $148.1 million, just behind Knocked Up, which cumed $148.8 million in 2007, and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, which earned $148.2 million domestically in 2006. Barring unforeseen interference from the Transformers sequel, Bridesmaids should pass both those movies Wednesday night.

Apatow directed and produced Knocked Up and produced Talladega Nights. Both were bigger hits overseas, with Knocked Up still serving as Apatow's top worldwide grosser at $219 million. Bridesmaids has made $21 million internationally but is still rolling out in many territories, where it is off to a phenomenal start.

In the U.S., Bridesmaids was released May 13 and is still playing in a little fewer than 2,000 theaters. Sex and the City grossed $153 million in 2008 but had the advantage of being based on a popular HBO series, which contributed to a whopping $57 million opening weekend. Bridesmaids, on the other hand, opened at a strong-but-not-blockbuster $26 million yet has continued to lure audiences based on strong word-of-mouth.

Bridesmaids also will become Universal’s top R-rated comedy of all time, replacing Knocked Up. The film stars Kristin Wig -- who co-wrote the script with Annie Mumolo -- Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Ellie Kemper and Wendi McLendon-Covey.

Here is the first trailer for Pixar's Brave previously titled (The Bear and the Bow.) The film stars the voice of Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Kevin McKidd, Robbie Coltrane, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters and Craig Ferguson.

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Movie Review By: SandwichJohn

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Movie Review
By: SandwichJohn

Where to start with this movie. How about here. I am just one person and this is my opinion. I don't think of myself as a movie critic but just someone who loves movies.

Maybe I am just not smart enough to follow this movie, it was a hot mess. An Autobot ship crashed on the Dark side of the moon, Megatron comes out of hiding and wants to restart the War. Are you still with me, something about teleportation and wanting to turn all of us into slaves.


Here we go with the negative. Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the summer movie you would expect from Michael Bay, a ton of action and explosions. But we don't actually get that until the second act of the film. We did get to see some new characters in the film (that were underdeveloped) and characters that really had no point being in the film. Yes, they got rid of the two clowns from the second film, but don't fear they have two more Jar Jar Binks in this movie. Wheelie makes his return with Brains. Why can't we have a movie without comedic sidekicks, sure they made me laugh a few times but they add nothing to the movie at all. I am sure George Lucas is smiling in his office now.


The film itself could have been trimmed down almost an hour, the run time for the film is 2 hours and 37 minutes.


The story didn't have any real flow to me and the action really didn't kick in until about an hour into the film. Too much story Mr. Bay, we come to see your movies for action and kick ass explosions, not a love story. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley how do you keep your clothes so white during the whole second half of the film during the battle in Chicago and where did you find time to change? Running and jumping in 6" heels. Ladies really, you all can do this? If this is true, I am amazed. Yes, I notice these things.


"I just want to matter," Sam Witwicky says with tears in his eyes, really? This is a key point in the film, this is the guy who saved the world twice and now he is begging for a JOB.


At times the film felt like a huge commercial. All the product placements throughout the film, I wanted to go drive a GM car while I play on my Lenovo computer at home, watching Autobot NASCAR 500.

Enough of the negative here are some positive things about the movie.



The Transforming of the robots in this film was very smooth and visually amazing. Cars, cars and more cars. I think my brother was more excited to see the Datsun 510 (Hakisuka/4 door Skyline for all you car nerds) than Optimus Prime.


The base jumping they did for the film was shot perfect, almost fells like you are one of the NEST teams jumping out of the plane.


The battle scene in Chicago was visually incredible and what I expected from the movie. Autobots and Decepticons beating the hell out of each other. It was better then the second film if that makes the pain go away any easier.


When the war on Cybertron between the Autobots and Decepticons appears lost to the Autobots, their leader, Sentinel Prime, attempts to launch the Ark from their planet, containing technology that could have saved his kind. Attacked by Starscream, it crashes on Earth's moon in 1961. President John F. Kennedy makes his famous promise to the nation to put a man on the moon. The 1969 NASA moon landing is actually an investigation of the wrecked spacecraft. Which I thought was clever and not a bad back story to start the film.


We see Sam Witwicky out of college and with no job. With Mikaela (Megan Fox) out of the picture Sam has moved onto Carly Spencer (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) this guy must have super game, maybe if they make a Transformers 4 they could have Sam become a dating expert and give advice to men how to date lovely ladies. Her character is loosely based on the character with the same name from the original 1984 animated series.


If your a fan of cameos then you'll enjoy seeing Patrick Dempsey who is a complete sell out in the movie, John Malkovich who should have never been in the movie (added nothing to it but a paycheck for himself ), Alan Tudyk who is pointless (stick to Firefly conventions) and the one and only Mr.Chow (Ken Jeong) who gave us a few laughs in the scenes he was in.


When we finally get to the final act of the film, you finally get your movies worth with the final battle. The sound and action wake you up from the long nap you might have been taking.


Don't get me wrong this movie is going to make a butt load of money and there is already talk about wanting a fourth film, which I really don't want to see happen. Why beat a dead horse to death.
