Whenever production wraps on a highly-anticipated movie, the countdown then begins for the first trailer to be unveiled. 20th Century Fox’s Alien: Covenant wrapped back in July. Today, fans are giving thanks for the unveiling of the first poster. This one-sheet not only gives us a look at the brand new Xenomorph alien, but it also reveals the surprising news that the movie will hit theaters three months earlier than originally planned, in the summer of 2017. The poster surfaced on 20th Century Fox’s official Twitter for the franchise, which could also indicate that the first trailer may be just around the corner, especially now that the release date was moved up three months. The poster reveals that the movie will now hit theaters May 19, 2017, going up against Paramount’s Baywatch remake, New Line’s horror sequel Annabelle 2, 20th Century Fox’s family sequel Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul and Open Road Films’ animated sequel The Nut Job 2. If it would have stayed in its August 4, 2017 date, it would be going up against Open Road Films’ All I See Is You and Blazing Samurai, along with Sony’s EmojiMovie: Express Yourself.
If the new trailer does arrive soon, then perhaps it will confirm the latest rumor about this sci-fi sequel. Actor Michael Fassbender revealed last month that he is actually portraying multiple android characters in Alien: Covenant. The actor will be reprising his role as the robot David from 2012’s Prometheus, but also another alien character named Walter. The actor also revealed that director Ridley Scott already had a cut of the movie assembled, calling the director “a machine,” which could be a factor into why the studio pushed the release date up three whole months. It’s worth noting that, if 20th Century Fox is planning on unveiling the first trailer soon, the studio could possibly attach the first footage to their action-packed video game adaptation Assassin’s Creed, which is set to hit theaters on December 21. It isn’t known what will be shown in the trailer, but hopefully it will give us a glimpse at the new Xenomorph shown on the poster in action. Even if the studio is planning a theatrical trailer release with Assassin’s Creed, the first footage may very well debut online before that date. Article courtesy Movieweb.
Good news for German Noomi fans. “Rupture” will be released on DVD & Blu-Ray in Germany on January 27, 2017. The film is stated with a running time of 101 minutes and the disc will feature interviews and a featurette. The Blu-Ray cover has been added to the photo gallery, alongside a very cool UK poster, where the film will be released in theaters on November 04 and on demand on January 02. Three new production stills have been added as well, and most of the previously added pictures have been replaced with high quality versions.
A second clip from the beginning of “Rupture” has been launched, showing us more of Noomi Rapace’s Renee, before all the horror starts. Additionally, four new production stills have been added to the photo gallery. Many thanks to Marinka for finding both.
On Monday, Noomi was among the celebrity guests of the “Hacksaw Ridge” screening in Los Angeles. You can find pictures in the photo gallery, alongside a good hundred additional pictures from last week’s American Cinematheque Gala honoring Ridley Scott.
Noomi Rapace looked absolutely stunning at yesterday’s 30th Annual American Cinematheque Awards Gala, honoring director Ridley Scott. A roll call of friends and collaborators, including Rapace, Josh Hartnett, Sigourney Weaver, Katherine Waterston, Ben Kingsley and Kristen Wiig took the stage throughout the evening to offer personal anecdotes. Matt Damon presented Scott with the award. As he often does in these circumstances, Scott looked back to his art school upbringing when it was his turn to respond to the outpouring of love and respect. â€śI was almost dyslexic to anything but that which was visual,â€ť Scott said, recalling how poor a student he was until he took on graphic design as a chosen subject at Londonâ€™s Royal College of Art. â€śI had this intuition about film,â€ť he said. â€śI didnâ€™t know how in the hell I was going to get there, but I figured maybe set design would bring me that much closer.â€ť Over 100 pictures from the ceremony have been added to the photo gallery.
Public appearances have been a rare treat for Noomi’s fans these past months. Yesterday, Noomi was spotted at the BFI Southbank Cinema on the South Bank in London for the premiere of “Anthropoid”. Based on the true story of Operation Anthropoid, the historical drama is set to hit UK theatres this week. Pictures from the premiere have been added to the photo gallery.
A couple of new production stills from the upcoming “Rupture” have been added to the photo gallery, while some previously added pictures have been replaced with better quality. Many thanks to Marika for helping me out with these. Enjoy.
