STAR WARS: EPISODE IX---director JJ Abrams released a photo of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac at the conclusion of principal filming for EPISODE IX.





JAMES BOND---Scott Z. Burns (THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM) will do a major rewrite of the script for the 25th James Bond movie written by 007 veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

BLACK WIDOW---Ned Benson (THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY) will rewrite the script for the Marvel movie starring Scarlett Johansson.

ALIEN---Screenrant ranked the ALIEN movies.

1. ALIEN
2. ALIENS
3. ALIEN: COVENANT
4. ALIEN RESURRECTION
5. PROMETHEUS
6. ALIEN VS. PREDATOR
7. ALIEN 3
8. ALIENS VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM





NETFLIX---the network cancelled THE PUNISHER and JESSICA JONES. THE PUNISHER star Jon Bernthal commented on the cancellation, "To all who have served. All who know loss. All who love and understand Frank and his pain. It has been an honor to walk in his boots. I’m endlessly grateful to the comic fans and the men and women of the Armed Services and law enforcement community who Frank means so much to. Thank you to the USMC and all the wonderful soldiers who trained me. Go Hard. Be safe."





NINE MEN FROM NOW---director Paul Schrader said Ethan Hake has departed the Western movie which is a remake of the 1956 movie SEVEN MEN FROM NOW. Schrader said his remake is, “Basically, if you took a script from 1956 that Budd Boetticher made with Randolph Scott, and you asked Terry Malick and David Lynch to come in and take a sh-t on the script, you would have the movie I’m making.”

EVIL---Katja Herbers (WESTWORLD) will star in this CBS tv series as Kristen Benoist, “a skeptical female clinical psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a blue-collar contractor as they investigate supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and other extraordinary occurrences to see if there’s a scientific explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.”

TRIPLE THREAT---Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Tiger Chen, Michael Jai White and Scott Adkins star in this VOD martial arts movie about assassins who target a billionaire's daughter.

TRIVIA---more James Bond movie trivia.
In THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, the little boy on the beach who points to the Lotus Esprit submarine car surfacing from the ocean was played by Richard George Kiel, the son of Richard Kiel, who played Bond Villain Jaws.

Kudos for having COVENANT high; slap on the wrist for having the brilliant and hugely underrated ALIEN 3 next-to-last.

While I don't particularly like ALIEN 3 that much*, botch up or not, it's a way better film than ANY of the shit that followed, especially the most recent garbage, which is just ruining any love I had for the franchise in the first place.
I remember not hating 4 as much as everyone else at the time, but haven't seen it in years, so don't know how it looks or holds up these days.

*certainly when compared to the first two high water marks.

Isn't The Punisher a brutal Vigilante? Nice to know who our armed services and cops idealize.

Alien 3 is hugely underrated. It's strange that all those horror aficionados have such an issue with Newt's and Bishop's deaths and are so very negative about it as bad choices or insensitivities. It is supposed to be a horror film, and when something horrible happens, the horror lovers object ?!
Besides that, the design of the film is epic and makes it a piece truly on its own. It is on the tail end of the trend, started in the 80s, to use 1950s and 1960s interiors, clothing, spectacles and some other elements to create a completely different vibe.
Yes it was like a lead blanket and while it was nowhere near an assault as "Resurection" was, I was worn out after the film as its atmosphere was very invasive and stayed with me for days.

It is a film that must be experienced in cinema for maximum effect and when it achieves it, it goes deeply under the skin. It is a really good film.

D.S.

ALIEN 3 is a masterpiece in comparison to those ridiculous PREDATOR/ALIEN celebrity death match films and the shite old Ridders has been vomiting forth these past few years.
