Danny McBride Joins Alien: Covenant

Many people complained about characters in Prometheus behaving stupidly, but it seems we ain't seen nothing yet. Danny McBride, star of Eastbound And Down and an integral part of the Rogen-Franco-Goldberg stoner comedy fraternity, is in early talks for a starring role in Alien: Covenant. If it happens he'll join the returning Michael Fassbender and new lead Katherine Waterston. But not Noomi Rapace.

There are no details at all so far about the role McBride would play, but the situation has apparently come about through director Ridley Scott and McBride bonding over their mutual love of film.

It's easy to make the obvious cracks about the hapless egocentric drug-addled sweary slacker pratfalling that McBride might bring to the Alien universe. But this could also be his opportunity to display a significant broadening of his range, in something like the way his fellow Rogenite Jonah Hill has done recently in Moneyball and The Wolf Of Wall Street.

Whatever the character, he'll somehow fit into a story that sees the crew of the colony ship Covenant heading for a remote planet at the edge of the galaxy. They discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world, the sole inhabitant of which is the android David (Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant is set to start shooting in Australia next month for a 2017 release.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
