Hello all! I have just returned from the 20th Century Fox Summer Movies panel at WonderCon. It only covered two films this year, but both look to be great. The first film was Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and the other was Prometheus. I will write about Abraham tomorrow, but today I am too jazzed to not write about Prometheus. Is Prometheus a direct prequel to Alien? I want to say ‘yes’ and ‘no’.
In a day of remakes and reboots it’s difficult to think that studios would green-light a single, self contained big budget story/movie. Half my assertions were justified when Sir Ridley Scott was asked the first question by panel presenter and writer Damon Lindelof.
