    This looks fantastic. Looks like Ridley Scott's got his groove back. 2017 is going to be one expensive year.

    When they first came out, Alien was a critical failure and Blade Runner a commercial failure.

    I am looking forward to it, but making it a horror movie is a bit lazy.

    I'm actually pretty happy that's the route they're going. We haven't had a good straight up horror Alien film 37 years - and it's been 30 since the last good one - so going back to basics is a good move I think.

    Plus, with the remnants of Prometheus' cast expected to show up to complicate matters, I don't think the film is going to be as straightforward as the trailer would make you believe. I don't think they'll be retreading the original that much at all, actually.

    Hopefully I'm right.

    I really hope I'm right.

    Ridley Scott is a lot of things, lazy is not one of them. He has a story he wants to tell and this chapter is a horror story; I can't wait. It looks incredible.

    Can't say I'm overly excited by that Alien Covenant trailer. Something about it bugs me.....I mean, an Alien shower scene...?!!!

    I remember the trailer for Prometheus made that film look fantastic....

    We shall see.

    Double I want to one day buy you a beer. Largely because you and I see things so differently that well I can bet the conversation at a bar would last well into closing time. I thought the trailer looked ok at best... I could go and create a full list of just how different we see the world (which I believe even goes as far as religion and politics) but still want to buy you a beer

    Haha! Cheers, mate. I'm holding you to that.

    'Liam Neeson plays an insurance salesman who must suddenly employ a very special set of skills to uncover the identity of a mysterious stranger on his train before the final stop – lest everyone onboard dies'

    Yep, I need 'The Commuter' right now!

    What do we think of the chances of Neeson making more thrillers after The Communter? Look at his 'Projects in development' on his IMDB page, at least two of them sound like they are action thrillers (The Escapist and The Revenger).

    @MajorDSmythe Neeson has signed on to make 'In Order of Disappearance' (if they stay true to the original film, Neeson will go on a brutal revenge in a snowy location against a mafia organization), he is also linked to 'Narco Sub' (a submarine thriller where Neeson will try to recover a stolen nuclear missile/whatever) and about a year ago he agreed to do 'The Reluctant Patriot' where he plays a CIA agent who will single-handidely take down an entire terrorist network in South America. And yes, 'The Revenger' is an action/comedy by the director of Zombieland, and 'The Escapist' is a remake of a prison escape thriller (with Brian Cox, made in 2008 I think).

    That's even better. More old school, old man badassery. B-)

    I still need to see The A-Team, The Grey and A Walk Among The Tombstones.

    So...Non-Stop and Taken had a baby, then? All these films are starting to blend together for me now, and that's not good.

    Me too! Someone needs to fill the void left by Clint's departure from the action genre, and Liam is doing a fine job of it as far as I'm concerned. Heck, he's also filling the shoes left by Van Damme, Seagal, Willis etc.

    @bondjames I don't care what it takes, but someone in Hollywood must green-light an action film featuring both Liam Neeson and Denzel Washington being total badasses before they get too old.

    Probably the only comic book movie I'm actually looking forward to. Thought the last Wolverine movie was pretty solid, and I love that this one will have an R-rating.

    It should be a crazy send-off for one of the best casting choices in recent moviemaking memory.

    As a fan of his, Van Damme hasn't gone anywhere, he's still kicking ass. Even some of his later DTV stuff has been worth a watch (Pound Of Flesh had a surprising ammount of emotion for what it was, and in Enemies Closer, Van Damme looked to be doing a Raoul Silva impression).

    Neeson's working overtime in the badass department. Can't wait to see these projects.

    That Logan poster is sweet. It's not too jazzed up or some lame photoshop rubbish. It's appeal is in its simplicity.

    He is; I do remember reading an interview with him where he set a time limit on this type of role. He is approaching that limit; let's see if he sticks to his guns....so to speak.

    I got chocked up just watching the trailer for A Dog's Purpose (so lord knows what the full film will do). I can watch someone getting their head ripped apart at the jaw in a film, and not feel anything, but the thought of mans best friend going to the dog park in the sky, turns me into a blubbering wreck.
