Are you drooling yet? New Alien prequel Prometheus hits the Internet and wow!


Well, the first trailer left Science Fiction fans wondering and waiting. With a fast-moving trailer, giving only hints of its meaning, the entire Internet was wroth with ideas and questions. Now, with the new trailer released it seems that we now have a better idea on what to expect. It is set in the year 2085, and was initially a prequel to the Alien franchise. However, according to Ridley Scott, it has morphed into something else; as he has decided to explore other aspects of the Alien franchise. This trailer clearly shows what is known as the “Space Jockey“. The trailer looks incredibly intense and full of action; with the terror of the original Alien movie. It will be interesting to see what this movie does in the box office this year.

The name “Prometheus” comes from Greek mythology and it is definitely related to the movie. It maybe a good idea to read up about him and how it may relate to the movie coming out this summer.

Beowulf – Real and Unreal


Sorry for getting off track a bit on this one! I rarely would I ever comment on a movie, but the progression of 3D CGI graphics has defiantly hit a new level. When Lord of the Rings “The Two Towers” was released I was amazed on how real Golem looked in the movie. Meaning, how well he blended into the film. Now, with Beowulf, we are seeing 3D graphics progress even further. It is not perfect, however it makes me wonder what 3D graphics will look like in 4-5 years. Will we be able to tell the difference between the real and unreal? Beowulf is the classic story about the warrior Beowulf, who must fight and defeat the monster Grendel who is terrorizing towns, and later, Grendel’s mother, who begins killing out of revenge. Beowulf” is rated PG-13 (Parents strongly cautioned). Gory violence and Angelina Jolie (enough said…)! Yes, I placed this under Sci-Fi, but I guess I will have to make a new category for “Fantasy” sometime soon.

Bones, Kirk enlist for ”Star Trek” movie


(Hollywood Reporter) – “Lord of the Rings” veteran Karl Urban is strapping on a stethoscope to play Leonard “Bones” McCoy, the Starship’s Enterprise’s medical officer, in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” feature.

Chris Pine, meanwhile, closed his deal to star as the young Captain Kirk. He had been in talks to play Kirk as well as a role opposite George Clooney in Joe Carnahan’s “White Jazz.” The two movies overlapped, and Pine was forced to choose between them, opting to make the “Trek.”

Abrams has been furiously casting “Trek,” with John Cho (Sulu), Simon Pegg (Scotty) and Eric Bana (the villainous Nero) joining the film last week.

Also on board are Zoe Saldana as the young Uhura, Anton Yelchin as the young Chekov and Zachary Quinto as the young Spock. Leonard Nimoy, who originated the role of Spock, also will be part of the film.

The Paramount Pictures project is expected to shoot from November to March.

Plot details are begin kept under wraps, but it is understood that the movie chronicles the early days of the Enterprise crew.
