Actress Noomi Rapace States That The Script For ‘Prometheus’ Sequel Is In The Works

The Playlist got a doozy of a scoop while they were chatting with actress Noomi Rapace. During a press junket for her upcoming thriller Dead Man Down (due out March 8), IndieWire writer Ben Taylor turned the topic of conversation from Rapace’s definite upcoming project to more speculative fare. Specifically, the possibility of a sequel to Prometheus, […]

Tonight just took a turn for the tragic. According to various sources (and seemingly stemming from TheWrap), Tony Scott, director of such films as Top Gun and True Romance, has died of an apparent suicide. He was 68.

Movie Sequel Round-Up: Prometheus, X-Men: First Class, And Thor 2

It may seem that Hollywood is swiftly becoming naught but a hotbed of sequels and reboots, but three high-profile projects in the news this morning at least have real potential. First up, Ridley Scott has been hinting at a sequel to his recent sci-fi opus Prometheus, with sources pointing to a 2014 or 2015 release date. […]

Brave Family


I really do not think it would be a stretch to say that this weekend would have been easy to predict for the top box office slot. Pixar’s new movie Brave claimed the title raking in more green than the lush Scottish countryside most of the film was set in. Honest Abe failed to be a […]


What The Film?! – Alien 2: On Earth

What The Film?! is a new weekly column exclusive to Under The Gun Review that brings to light the plot holes Hollywood hoped you’d never notice. Written by comedy writer Dane Sager, this column shows no mercy to films that try and pull the proverbial wool over our eyes. If you know a film with major […]

Madagascar 3


It was a slow weekend for moviegoers, probably due to the new releases available to see. Rock Of Ages barely beat out Snow White And The Huntsman for a number three spot, most likely because no one under the age of forty is going to watch a movie where a 50 year old Tom Cruise is a […]


EDITORIAL: “48 Frames Per Second: Advancement or Fad?”

Recently Peter Jackson and James Cameron have come out supporting a new film technology: shooting movies at 48 frames per second instead of the traditional 24 frames per second of film. For people in the film industry that sentence has a lot of meaning and implications, but for most other people it is just gibberish. […]


EDITORIAL: “Prometheus: How the Sci-Fi Flick’s R-Rating Helped It Conquer Audiences Worldwide”

Earlier this year, Universal cancelled a proposed $150 million adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At The Mountains of Madness when director Guillermo del Toro refused to settle for less than an R-rating. A fervent devotee of the novella, the Pan’s Labyrinth director had been working on the script for more than half a decade and didn’t […]



There are two films opening this weekend that everyone will be talking about on Monday. If you are a fan of kids and family movies then make sure to check out Madagascar 3. If you love science fiction or want to be up on pop culture discussions then definitely see Prometheus, which we have a […]


MOVIE REVIEW: Prometheus

Film: Prometheus Starring: Noomi Rapace, Logan Marshall-Green and Michael Fassbender Directed by: Ridley Scott There’s an Alien-shaped elephant in the room. Two viewings of this film later, I still haven’t quite formed a proper opinion. Let this not dismay or beguile you – it seems to be divisive, and even after prolonged analysis and breakdowns […]
