Jungle Cruise Review 'SUMMER ADVENTURE of the year'

#GeekFuel Review: July 2016

Our final Geek Fuel box offers more of the same: a perplexing array of geeky sundries. Review by Matt Cummings NOTE: This review has been updated to include our cancellation of the Geek Fuel subscription box. With 2016 half way completed, Geek Fuel is not exactly weathering the subscription box storm. With our interest in monthly boxes finally at an end, it's time to bid GF a fond farewell. July's box makes a strong case for cancellation, featuring yet another hodge-podge of seemingly random items. Before diving in to the misery, let's review the details: The cost for a Month to Month is $17.90, $16.90/month for a 3-month subscription, $15.90/month for a 6-month tour and just $13.90/month for a one-year subscription. Shipping $6.00 to the US, Canada, and at least a few other countries. We use QUALITY and TIMING to base our reviews, so let's see how this box stands up. As always, we'll end our review with some additional thoughts after t

We Will Have To Wait A Little Longer For Neill Blomkamp’s ALIEN Film

Here an update of the Neill Blomkamp’s new ALIEN movie. Bloody Disgusting is reporting.. “Alien 5 is still very much in the works, as Fox remains hot on the idea. Blomkamp continues to work on the script (only an outline existed previously) and refine the tale he is telling. Ridley Scott is still producing, but has insisted on Prometheus 2 being made first.” PROMETHEUS 2 may start production next year and then we’ll see about Blomkamp’s new ALIEN movie which he is currently writing. Ridley Scott will produce this next ALIEN movie which Blomkamp previously promised wouldn’t tread on the toes of Scott’s “Prometheus 2″ which itself also promises to divert away from ‘Alien’ franchise. Blomkamp’s ALIEN will pay respect to “ Alien 3 ″ and “ Alien Resurrection ” instead of completely ignoring them, at least that what Blomkamp promised,.. there are many promises here but it’s still uncertain where his new ALIEN movie will fit in the series.

*UPDATED* Neill Blomkamp's Alien Sequel to Ignore Alien³ and Alien Resurrection

New film aims to be The Real Alien 3. By Brandon Wolfe After a week of rampant speculation, director Neill Blomkamp, doing a press tour for his upcoming film Chappie , has confirmed that his recently announced Alien sequel will indeed deal with problematic previous installments Alien³ and Alien Resurrection by simply blinking them out of existence, much like Halloween: H20 and Superman Returns did with the preceding sequels they didn’t like. “I want this film to feel like it is literally the genetic sibling of Aliens , so it’s Alien, Aliens , this movie,” said Blomkamp. “It’s a Freudian kind of nightmare. That element to me is what is so appealing, to try to put the audience on the edge of their seat the whole time in a traditional ‘monster stalking you/dark corridor’ way. And then when you mix in the life cycle and the design elements of the Alien, it’s just a powder-keg of creativity to me.” Blomkamp further confirmed to The Guardian that he would “categorically”

Neill Blomkamp's Alien Fantasy Film Becomes a Reality

Alien gets a resurrection thanks to Instagram. By Brandon Wolfe District 9 director Neill Blomkamp created a stir recently when he posted to his Instagram page a series of Alien concept art images he had commissioned independently as an unsolicited “what if?” fantasy project. Blomkamp stated at the time that he did this for fun and that he did not expect any of it to ever come to fruition. Yet sometimes fantasies do come true, as both the director and 20th Century Fox have now confirmed that Blomkamp will indeed be bringing his Alien vision to life. Ridley Scott, the granddaddy of the Alien franchise, will produce the film through his production company, Scott Free. The project will coexist with the upcoming Prometheus sequel that Scott is still making for some reason. Though Sigourney Weaver has not yet signed onto the new film, she recently expressed enthusiasm for the idea and has just worked with Blomkamp on the upcoming Chappie . Given that the concept art show

Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel

Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel The anticipation for his next project is building to fever pitch: it will be a two-part prequel to Alien, shot in 3D. Scott was never asked to make a sequel to Alien; that honour went to James Cameron, before a further two sequels and two Alien vs Predator spin-offs milked the franchise dry. But with the Lost co-creator Damon Lindoff polishing the first prequel's script, you can sense the competitor in Scott, desperate to put his stamp back on the film series that launched him. "Jim's raised the bar and I've got to jump to it," he says, in a friendly jibe at Cameron. "He's not going to get away with it." Set 30 years before the 1979 original, so with no room for Sigourney Weaver's Ripley, the prequels will explore the origins of the deadly aliens. "The film will be really tough, really nasty," he notes. "It's the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of sp

Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel

Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel Ridley Scott is going back to where it all started and will direct the prequel to his "Alien".  He recently spoke to MTV and gave us some great insight to the upcoming film. Here's what Scott had to say about where the production is currently at. As we speak, I've got a pile of pages next to me; it's like the fourth draft. It's a work in progress, but we're not dreaming it up anymore. We know what the story is. We're now actually trying to improve the three acts and make the characters better, build it up to something [we can shoot]. It's a work in progress, but we're actually making the film. There's no question about it, we're going to make the film. He goes on to explain that he is working on getting the screenplay complete so they can find out how much is will cost to make the film. He's also got people working on the films designs. The story is set, the characters are in place, and here
