Prometheus Sequel Titled Alien: Paradise Lost

EGP Website Article Image 362

The title of the sequel to the 2012 Prometheus film has been revealed as Alien: Paradise Lost.

We’ve seen lots of Prometheus news this week, but the title reveal is by far the biggest news. Prometheus filmmaker Ridley Scott revealed the title himself, clearly feeling the sequel would benefit from having the Alien name as part of its title. This makes sense as even though long-time Alien fans would know Prometheus is part of the franchise, an average movie goer might not so that could be the reason for the title.

Alien: Paradise Lost begins production in February 2016.

Thoughts on the title? Are you looking forward to Alien: Paradise Lost?

Report- New Men in Black Trilogy in Development

EGP Website Article Image 361

A new report from The Hollywood Report (which included interviews with producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald) has indicated that a new Men in Black trilogy is in development.

The following exchange took place in the interview:

THR: You produced Men in Black. Has there been talk of reviving that franchise with the new Sony regime?

Parkes: We’re in the middle of it. It’s very active.

THR: Is Will Smith going to be part of it?

Parkes: Most likely no.

MacDonald: It will be reinvented as a trilogy.

As stated, Will Smith (James Edwards) likely won’t be involved so the new trilogy will likely be very different to the trilogy we’ve already seen.

Rumours have indicated for a while that a Men in Black/Jump Street crossover is being considered, so it’s possible that the Men in Black series will be reinvented in an even bigger way than Parkes and MacDonald stated.

Thoughts on this report? Are you looking forward to another Men in Black trilogy?

EGP Website Article Image 356

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens rumours kicked into overdrive when the cast was officially announced last year, but no details (rumoured or confirmed) have really been released on experienced actor Max von Sydow’s character- aside from a codename, “The Vicar”. Now the name of his character is rumoured to have been revealed.

Von Sydow’s character is said to be called Lor San Tekka.

Also, rumoured details on the character are below, but be wary as there are possible spoilers in there so here is your SPOILER alert warning.




“Lor San Tekka is believed to be the one on Jakku who gets Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber after it falls from space.  He then calls Poe Dameron and the resistance to come pick it up.  Unfortunately the First Order also arrives on Jakku, looking for the lightsaber.  Lor San Tekka gives the lightsaber to Poe before he is confronted and ultimately killed by Kylo Ren.  This all happens within the first fifteen minutes of the film.”

Thoughts on the character name? Are you excited to see Max von Sydow in The Force Awakens?

EGP Website Article Image 354

Shooting for one of the upcoming Star Wars films is reportedly taking place in Iceland.

While it’s unconfirmed which film is being filmed (either Rogue One: A Star Wars Story or Episode VIII), but it’s likely to be the former as actor Mads Mikkelsen stated before that filming will mostly take place in England and Iceland.

A production crew has supposedly been working near Hjörleifshöfði and Hafursey in South Iceland. It was previously rumoured that scenes for this year’s Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens were shot in Iceland, involving Stormtroopers. So it may not be the first time a Star Wars film is partially shot in Iceland
