    Well, it only makes sense. Ridley Scott is pushing 75 and has several movies in development. He did mention that he wished to make a series out of Prometheus. I don't know. We'll see.

    Viral marketing appeared online a few days after the release of the last one, emphasizing a date in October.

    And nobody has captured a genuine alien environment on film.
    Not yet, not even close.

    Alas, Battleship. We hardly knew thee.

    I thought it would have been amusing for Prometheus to not get picked up for a sequel, which would have left everything stranded. But it made too much money for that to occur.

    Renewing Snow White is just stupid -- the best part of the first movie was Theron, and she's done. Stewart was actually among the worst parts; she has about as much charisma as Al Gore. (although her "stir up the natives" speech was worlds better than Sam Worthington's from Avatar).

    Kinda like the Golden Compass, huh?
    Though, I was hoping to see more Gandalf bear's maul amtics.

    Totally forgot about that mess...

    It's just as well. Things went downhill after The Subtle Knife anyway.

    It was much better than I feared. As a sci-fi horror movie, it is worth about six or seven out of ten points. Odd fact: I acquired the new 'Lawrence of Arabia' bluray just yesterday.

    I'm a massive Alien fan and I thought Prometheus was shit. For various reasons:
    A lack of likeable characters, the most relatable being Fassbender and he was playing an emotionless robot, which says something.
    Not saying Noomi Rapace is a bad actress, but she was crap. It's probably tough delivering lines in a foreign language though.
    Lack of plot consistency. One minute the mercenary geologist dude is freaking out about seeing an ancient hologram of someone dying in the alien relic, 100's of years ago for all he knows, and running back to the ship, the next minute he's had a random change of heart and decided to stay there and wander round poking things.
    The film lost me really early and never regained my confidence. Terrible script, poor story structure. I don't really care about the cinematography or themes, if you can't get the dialogue and plot right you won't engage me. I just sat the whole way through thinking "I could do this better". And the whole point of paying for a movie is to see something you couldn't come up with yourself.

    How's the HD quality of Arabia?
    I've never seen the movie all the way through.

    7/10. There is only so much you can do with the material, I guess. Maybe the Criterion version, when it comes, will again improve the quality.

    That's a pity.
