Friday One Sheet: ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD

The one thing I love about Korean theatrical posters is that they often just take a good photograph and make it the key art. No fuss, no muss, a wee bit of photoshop buffing, a great sense of framing, and...

BLADE RUNNER 2049 International Trailer: The Future Has Finally Been Unearthed

A new international trailer for Blade Runner 2049 gives all due respect to Ridley Scott and Harrison Ford, but what drew my attention on this latest marketing tool are the elements that suggest the sequel will not be simply a...

Spoilers. "Mortal, after all," crows the android David (Michael Fassbender) in Prometheus, upon discovering that the "gods" his crew has sought - the Engineers - can in fact be killed. In Alien: Covenant we learn that David took his name...

Review: ALIEN: COVENANT Uses Horror to Mask Its Shortcomings

Ridley Scott returns to fill in the blanks of the maligned horrors of space, with plenty of screaming and more than enough people around to hear it in Alien: Covenant. His familiar fated take on the Alien genesis, however, sticks more...

Red Band ALIEN: COVENANT Trailer Slithers In

I've been waiting on a tease for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, and now it's here -- a full first trailer that looks like, well, an Alien movie. One can't argue about that. It's light years away from Prometheus in terms of both look and feel,...

ALIEN: COVENANT Issues a Warning

This is a public service announcement. 20th Century Fox has issued a warning on Twitter. Run.  The tweet itself contains little information other than a single date: May, 2017. Whatever it means, I'm praying for the best, but getting ready...

BLADE RUNNER 2049: Sequel's Title Sets a Date

If you like keeping up with these kind of things the title for the Blade Runner sequel has just been announced, Blade Runner 2049.  We realize this does not say much other than set the sequel thirty years after the...

Toronto 2015 Review: THE MARTIAN, A Thrilling, Entertaining Space Flick

The Martian concept is a delight, stranding an astronaut millions of kilometers from home, where he has to "science the shit" out of the situation in order to find a way back. Implicit in the concept, however, is that...

Destroy All Monsters: Mars Needs Meaning

To psyche ourselves up for Ridley Scott's next film, The Martian, ScreenAnarchy contributor Kurt Halfyard and I have been putting together a limited-run podcast which works backwards through the history of Mars on film, from 2012 to 1918. It was...

THE MARTIAN: Matt Damon Sciences 'Something' Out Of The Official Trailer

The trailer for The Martian, starring Matt Damon and directed by Ridley Scott, landed this morning. It is full of a wide range of thrills and chills, hope and despair, and action and adventure. Then Damon will 'science the shit'...

AnarchyVision: Jason Gorber Talks BNAT16, Scott's EXODUS and Rock's TOP FIVE

Special on-location report from Austin's famed Drafthouse movie theatre, home once again to the lunacy that is Butt-Numb-a-Thon. Almost 30 hours in that place, watching 13 features and other flicks, it made for a hell of a day, and a...

Opening: EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS, A Barrage Of Biblical Bombast

Meeting, but rarely exceeding, expectations, Ridley Scott's grand retelling of Moses and the Hebrews' flight from Egypt is strong on visuals and A-list presence, but slight on narrative and characterisation. Christian Bale and Joel Egerton both put in fine performances...

Blu-Ray Review: KINGDOM OF HEAVEN Ultimate Edition - A Primer for EXODUS

A decade before Ridley Scott brought Exodus: Gods and Kings to the big screen, he tackled another epic about religion, faith and pragmatism. Kingdom of Heaven was Scott's film about the Crusades, a rousing, rambunctious film that tried to...

Review: EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS Is Lost In The Wilderness

Meeting, but rarely exceeding, expectations, Ridley Scott's grand retelling of Moses and the Hebrews' flight from Egypt is strong on visuals and A-list presence, but slight on narrative and characterisation. Christian Bale and Joel Egerton both put in fine performances...

It's White Moses Versus White Pharoah Saving A Bunch Of White Guys From The Other Bunch Of White Guys, None Of Whom Should Actually Be White.

Oh, Ridley Scott, you're wacky. Also, Joel Edgerton: Bald is not a good look for you....

The Kids Talk Film: ALIEN

Imagine the opportunity to go back and watch Ridley Scott's Alien, for the first time again. Willem (age 10) got his first exposure to the horrific piece of science fiction as he continues his tour through the genre with his father...

Extended Cut Of Ridley Scott's THE COUNSELOR Coming In February

February cannot come too soon. After audiences unwisely ignored Ridley Scott's A-lister ensemble neo-noir and critics unfairly savaged it in print and online, it seems The Counselor is getting an extended cut for its Blu-ray release on the February 11....

THE VATICAN: Ridley Scott Rejected

First, ciritcs and audiences fled in horror from the genius of The Counselor, and now premium cable network Showtime has rejected Ridley Scott too, declining to move forward after seeing the pilot episode that he directed for the dramatic series...
