Sundance Review: Life In A Day
Friday, January 28 by

Life in a Day was made by asking YouTube filmmakers to submit footage about what their day was like on July 24, 2010. I would assume that such an endeavor would generate a lot of really pretentious footage. If you’re like me, you would be right.

Ridley Scott Could Go Back to Rubber Suits for ‘Alien’ Prequel
Wednesday, October 20 by

Alien was made back in the good old days when monsters were guys in rubber suits. If Ridley Scott is making a prequel to Alien, it would make sense to go back to the practical effects. It turns out the director's been consulting with Avatar creature designer Neville Page. Scott’s still not sold on that performance capture hocus pocus.

“I just recently was talking to Ridley Scott,” Page said at a media even for the Blu-Ray release of Avatar. “He brought up a really interesting point about how the real rubber suits for him are still a preference because you get stuff that you’re forced to have be real. As a result, it feels real on camera or in camera. I thought, ‘Wait a minute, I thought we were doing everything digital now.’ Just like us, a director’s going to use whatever tools make sense for the end result.”

That’s food for thought for Ridley Scott. Dude, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Bring back the rubber suit. Page said Scott was just gathering information to weigh his options.

“He was talking more theoretical in regards to filmmaking and his experience on the original. It’s a choice of now moving forward, when you can do an alien fully digital, is that what he would do?”

What do you think? Wouldn’t it be great to see an old school alien in the Alien prequel as opposed to more CG B.S.?

Fox Freaks The Eff Out Over Lindelof’s ‘Alien’ Script
Wednesday, October 13 by

Damon Lindelof has handed in his new draft of the screenplay for Ridley Scott's Alien prequel and the execs at 20th Century Fox have responded: "A+++ will do business with again." It's said that the script is successful on both a creative and budgetary level, and we don't know much more beyond that.
What we do know is that the action takes place 35 years before Ridley Scott's original and follows a female Space Marine General. The studio and director have named Natalie Portman as their top-pick for the role, with Noomi Rapace selected as an alternate. Other names that have been mentioned are Gemma Arterton and Carey Mulligan (who just screams Marine general). And beyond that, nobody knows nothing. People run around and get eaten, I guess.

Carey Mulligan and Noomi Rapace Up For Lead In ‘Alien’ Prequel
Friday, October 8 by

We've got word that Ridley Scott's Alien prequel may end up being downright adorable. Early reports that Gemma Arterton would star in the film were shot down, leaving the role wide open for the right starlet. According to Deadline, the director and studio have been meeting with actresses, including Carey Mulligan, and Noomi Rapace.
Rapace is said to have a made "a strong impression." There wasn't any mention of how Mulligan's meeting went, but our inside sources confirmed that Ridley "really liked that little boy."
