Alien: Covenant Sneak Peek on FX’s Legion

We still have some time before Alien: Covenant comes blasting into theaters on May 19 and reminds us that it’s never a good idea to bring a sick person into a spaceship. (No really, don’t.)

A new sneak peek, above, has revealed a bit more. The preview, a prologue titled “Last Supper” and which came during Wednesday’s episode of the FX series Legion (A show you should watch if you’re an X-Men fan, it’s about Prof X’s son), showed a business-as-usual colonization ship headed for a remote planet where the crew will build a new human settlement. While characters played by James Franco — who we learn is the captain — and Billy Crudup are in awe of their view, Danny McBride has another take: “I don’t know what you’re talking about. It kinda spooks me out — a big old sea of nothing.”

Yeap, definitely looks like nothing to me.

So far, we understand that this installment of Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise takes place somewhere after the events of 2012’s Prometheus and before the Nostromo starts to return to Earth as we saw in 1979’s Alien. Director Ridley Scott promises this film — which also costars Demian Bichir, Jussie Smollett, and Carmen Ejogo — will provide some answers. “Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why.”

STORYLINE

The movie is written and directed by Wes Anderson is absolutely fabulous and not to be missed. Wes Anderson delivers something classical yet original. The movie surrounds itself around the death of the old Madame Taxis who is played by Tilda Swinton. The plot of the movie thicker with the old lady leaving a what happens to be a priceless painting to the poor fellow making the situation more complicated as it is. The poor fellow is played by Ralph Fiennes and played it like splendid that you can’t see the Dark Lord in him nor M.
Note to self, this is Bill Murray and Wes Anderson seventh movie together and with this movie now we are looking forward to their eighth movie together.
Only comment we could think of is that Angela Lansbury would have played a better Madame Taxis.

Plot: 8.5/10

The Book Thief – Review

The movie is set  in 1938, Germany when Hitler started killing all Jew’s. When the movie started I thought that I was watching another Harry Potter with death narrating it. Death, voiced by Roger Allam explain how people should react when he approaches.

Slowly the story of young Leisel come to play with she meeting he new step parents – Hans(Geoffrey Rush) and Rose Hubermann(Emily Watsons). Hans act as a cool and loving father while Rose is the evil witch which everybody thought she were.

Young Leisel played by Sophie Nellisse has a beautiful smile quickly made friends with Rudy Steiner her neighbours. It quickly escalated to why Nazi is hunting Jews and later on how the Hans family is put in a situation of life and death. The family been living in fear ever since but not to let that stop them from having some family time.

If you’re expecting a movie magic or a little girl fighting against the Nazi’s, you’re in for a surprise as the movie title has nothing to do with the movie plot. The movie however offers a good reference to how was the life after the German invasion.

XCLUSIVE EMPIRE- X-Men: Days of Future Past (25 Covers Reveal)

The first cover reveals the Sentinels, powerful robots created by Trask industries specifically to hunt down – and if it comes to it, to kill – mutants. That obviously puts them at odds with the X-Men, and in a dark future ruled by the Sentinels Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart ) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) team up to send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back in time to avert their rise. The only problem is that he’ll have to convince the younger Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) to help him.
