Prometheus had a fantastic Sci-Fi premise – life was injected into worlds by a species called The Engineers. Sadly the diabolically stupid characters dragged the movie down. To put it bluntly, there was nothing to like about them for the audience to be engrossed. Except perhaps the character development of Vickers (played...

This promo shot features Noomi Rapace (swedish version of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) calling Weyland for reinforcement.

The buzz surrounding Ridley Scott’s prometheus is definitely increasing. The last weeks or so has seen the revelation of murky set pictures and trailer. Suffice it to say Twentieth Century Fox was not amused by the leak of either material, complaining the piss-poor quality of the trailer would be a let down.

Blade Runner sequel in the works!

IGN.com has an interesting story, apparently Ridley Scott is working towards Blade Runner 2, a sequel to the 1982 original starring Harrison Ford. Though rumors first started to seem about two years ago on a Blade runner sequel things took a turn when Prometheus was announced, the long awaited prequel to Alien.
