Latest colonization mission lands in hostile terrain in Ridley Scott's “ALIEN: COVENANT”


LATEST COLONIZATION MISSION LANDS IN HOSTILE TERRAIN IN RIDLEY SCOTT’S “ALIEN: COVENANT”

The largest colonization mission takes off in Ridley Scott’s latest sci-fi horror-thriller “Alien: Covenant” starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Billy Crudup, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and Danny McBride.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in “Alien” with “Alien: Covenant”, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with “Prometheus” and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

In recent interviews, Ridley Scott revealed that in “Alien: Covenant”, he explored into the origins of the xenomorphs, and that the movie touches on mortality, immortality and the higher power who created humans and the universe. “We did Prometheus – that heaved it off the ground, and Covenant is a follow-through to Prometheus. We now know who created this, and why, and the next one’s a joining up of the storyline,” says Scott.

Both Prometheus and Covenant are inspired by Scott’s personal beliefs about where we came from: “We’re not just a random biological accident, for you and I to be sitting here right now [by accident] would take trillions of correct decisions made randomly by nature, which of course is ridiculous. I think there’s some kind of decision being made. I believe in a higher force – if we want to call it God, then it’s God.”

Scott further revealed in his Vanity Fair interview about the opening scene in “Alien: Covenant”, “We start Covenant with a really clever prologue that settles—once and for all—who David really is.” The sequence begins on a “big beautiful blue eye—you see every vein” and over that shot audiences will hear footsteps approach. “How do you feel?” a voice asks. “Alive,” the owner of the eye responds. Scott explains that the prologue reveals Guy Pearce’s Prometheus character, Peter Weyland, as a younger, 40-year-old man whom the newly-born David calls “father.” Scott promises this sequence will “really get people going because it’s fucking smart for a change.”




“Alien: Covenant” opens May 10 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Strength of selfless teens ignite in “POWER RANGERS” movie


STRENGTH OF SELFLESS TEENS IGNITE IN “POWER RANGERS” MOVIE

Based on the unendingly popular legend of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comes the rollicking, action-packed modern chronicle of how the famed color-coded crew of teen warriors first transformed from a band of small-town outcasts into a united team of mighty superheroes in the new “Power Rangers” movie.

The re-imagined story of Saban’s “Power Rangers” comes to the screen on a thrilling scale that amps up the, action, effects and creative design. A fresh young cast from around the world joins with Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks in a non-stop adventure that puts ordinary teens to the test in the most extraordinary situation imaginable: transcending a 21st Century pressure cooker of cyber-bullying, alienation, peer pressures and family issues to become nothing less than the world’s only chance to survive.

"Recent research shows that most of us are born with what is termed as a 'selfless gene'," says Matt Suzana, co-writer of the Power Rangers movie. "Daily selfless acts include donating blood, helping blind people cross the street, giving alms, and the list goes on." he continues. "These selfless people share a common gene variation that is linked to the receptor for Oxytocin, often referred to as the 'love hormone.' Oxytocin plays a vital role in the formulation of social bonds and relationships, impacting a person's capacity for empathy.”

“With this in mind, we imagined 5 selfless youths chosen to become Power Rangers. We want the characters to be real and believable, and that they are really selfless people in this world who risk their lives, their jobs, and their future to help other people and yet expect nothing in return. In the case of these young people, their heroic acts are truly believable and most of us can identify with them. Standing up for those in need is a selfless way to live, everyone benefits. To exhibit altruism is to elevate our entire species to the next level," reveals Suzana.

The script honed in on exploring the five Power Rangers as 21st Century high schoolers, each going through his or her own epic coming-of-age battle – and confronting today’s issues of social media, cyber-bullying, peer pressure, family pressure and the uncertain future – all while learning to deal with superhuman strength and a heroic destiny that is thrust upon them without much warning.

Adds screenwriter John Gatins: “We wanted our Power Rangers to reflect more of what teenagers are going through right now – so we married more realism to the original concept. For each of our Rangers, there is something inside they have been wrestling with and trying to overcome."

Indeed, each Ranger-to-be has hit a form of adolescent rock bottom. Jason, the Red Ranger, is a former football star who inadvertently made a career-ending mistake; Kimberly, the Pink Ranger, is a Queen Bee who fell from grace; Billy, the Blue Ranger, is a super-smart but socially challenged kid who has never been able to make a single real friend; Trini, the Yellow Ranger, is a rebellious loner who never fits in; and Zack, the Black Ranger, is a tough-guy secretly in an even tougher family situation.

It is only when this quintet of outcasts all land together in school detention that fate takes over – and they suddenly find themselves attached to strange, glowing coins that seem to be bringing them inexplicable strength. Now, they have to figure how to control their mysterious abilities even as they face all the emotions and drama of finding their identities… and try to save the world to boot.





“Power Rangers” opens in cinemas nationwide on March 22 from Pioneer Films.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
