Details for the Ridley Scott-directed, Damon Lindelof-scripted Prometheus have been scarce. Up until now, all that’s known about the project, which serves as a stand-alone companion piece to Scott’s 1979 classic Alien, is that it involves a team of scientists stranded on a planet with hostile inhabitants.
But, now, Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron is shedding a little light on the movie. She tells Total Film:
I actually don’t play the heroine in it; that’s Noomi Rapace. I play somewhat of a villain in it. She’s not a believer, she’s not a scientist, she is the red tape that everyone has to go through.
She’s working with the company that’s sponsoring this whole thing, and you can feel she definitely has an agenda, which we pick up in the third act. She’s more quiet thunder.
Emma Stone portrays Peter Parker’s love interest Gwen Stacy in director Marc Webb’s (500 Days of Summer) upcoming Spiderman reboot for Sony Pictures. Images featuring the 23-year-old stunner in character have hit the … umm … web.
The Amazing Spiderman is an origins film based on Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley’s “Ultimate Spiderman” comics, which finds our friendly neighborhood crime-fighter back in high school.
The film stars Andrew Garfield as Spidey, Denis Leary as Gwen’s father Capt. George Stacy, Rhys Ifans as super-villain The Lizard, Chris Zylka as Flash Thompson, Sally Field and Martin Sheen as Peter Parker’s aunt and uncle, and C. Thomas Howell as Soul Man.
The Amazing Spiderman swings into theaters on July 3, 2012.
The folks at Screen Gems want to remind you why you need to see Underworld: Awakening, the fourth installment in the popular vampires-vs-werewolves franchise that sees the return of Kate Beckinsale as death-dealer Selene … and, it has little to do with supernatural creatures.
Sure, the new trailer provides better looks at Eve, Selene’s half-vamp/half-lycan teen daughter, and the film’s bigger, meaner, and hairier mega-lycan, but the hard sell comes near the end of the clip when it states “Kate Beckinsale In 3-D” and with a low angle shot of her crotch.
Well played, Screen Gems, well played. Underworld: Awakening opens Jan. 20, 2012.
