'Twilight' Returns to Theaters
Fanboy Fix: 'Twilight' Re-Release, 'Star Trek' Deleted Scene and 'Alien' Prequel
Summit Entertainment plans to give you Twi-hards an extra treat prior to the theatrical release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon as they've just announced a plan to re-release Twilight into theaters for one night only on November 19th, 24 hours prior to its sequel is scheduled to roll out nationwide.
According to Summit, the decision was made to re-release Twilight on the big screen due to overwhelming fan requests, adding that some theaters will offer discounted admission prices (after all, the film has been on DVD for months now). Too bad they're not keeping it in theaters for at least one more day so you all can do a double feature of Twilight and New Moon, though something tells me Summit will plan some Twilight-a-thons at some point in the near future.
'Star Trek' Deleted Scene Features Klingons
Oh, you heard that correctly. Though they were mysteriously absent from the film when it hit theaters this past May, a newly released deleted scene shows that, yes, J.J. Abrams did include a Klingon subplot that went missing from the final product.
In this scene, which you can watch below, the villainous Nero is being interrogated by a Klingon who wants to know more about the future. Thing is, Nero isn't going to give up the goods that easily, and when the Klingons try to make the wrong move, he strikes back with force. Expect more of this subplot to be revealed when the Star Trek DVD hits shelves on November 17th.
Ridley Scott Talks 'Alien' Prequel
Things have been silent on the Alien prequel front ever since news hit a couple months ago that Ridley Scott would return to the franchise and direct the film himself. Speaking to Empire, Scott finally shed some light on when, exactly, this prequel would be set. He says, "It's a brand new box of tricks. We know what the road map is, and the screenplay is now being put on paper. The prequel will be a while ago. It's very difficult to put a year on Alien, but [for example] if Alien was towards the end of this century, then the prequel story will take place thirty years prior." Scott then adds, "I never thought I'd look forward to a sequel. But a prequel is kind of interesting. I'm looking forward to doing that."
What do you think about Ridley Scott returning to the Alien franchise for a prequel? Can it work? Is there still room to tell a really wicked story within this Alien universe? Sound off below!
