Whilst attempting to contact the prototype the rescue mission's captain is killed. This untimely tragedy imposes the captaincy on Commander Jane Altaire. After fifteen years on ThetaL, genius who developed the star drive Zepethar is the sole survivor of the prototype's crew. New Ridley Scott film, Prometheus , will have Geiger designs. It has been two years since we reported the rumours about a possible new Alien film back in autumn from Ridley Scott and then a year later the word was that it would be part of an Alien prequel trilogy.
Now a press release from the studio affirms that Scott's new film Prometheus will be hard SF involving scientists on an exoplanet, and with some of the photos released having HRG stamped suggests that that H. R Geiger the conceptual image designer of the original Alien alien will be involved. However, coyly there is no actual mention of an alien.
We think this lack of mention is smoke an mirrors and that either way Prometheus is bound to be worth checking out. Ridley Scott himself in an tele-linked interview at Comicon said that his aim was to scare the living hit out of you. The word is that Prometheus' story is related to Scott's Alien and there is a fleeting glimpse of what appears to be an alien nymph in the just-released trailer and also, equally fleeting, the adult at its end.
Stills and artwork released indicate that Prometheus has a Blade Runner look.
Hopes are high in fantastic film fan circles. New Daredevil film mooted. Now the Ben Affleck Daredevil film did accrue some arguably unfair criticism: it was actually quite a reasonable go at bringing the Marvel comics character to the screen.

In Time is a forthcoming SF film about the commercial ability of life extension. In the not-too-distant future, time has become the ultimate currency. You can stop aging at 25 by having cell death genes switched off. But there's a catch: you are genetically-engineered to live only one more year, unless you can buy your way out of it. The rich 'earn' decades at a time, becoming essentially immortal 'year olds', while the rest beg, borrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day.
Keep your eye out for a film called Nightfall. This is not to be confused with Asimov's brilliant short story, and certainly not the dire film of the same.

The deal is this. Budding film makers are given a line of dialogue and told a film prop which they must then both include in a short film that has to be made over the next hours.
