Check Out the Latest BLADE RUNNER 2049 and ALIEN: COVENANT Photos

The holiday season is typically a time when Hollywood slows down its marketing efforts, but Tinseltown has provided plenty of goodies for today’s Movie Morsels. We’ve got new photos from both Blade Runner 2049 and Alien: Covenant, as well as a fantastic Easter egg that Star Wars fans may have missed in Rogue One, a clip from Vin Diesel’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage, and much more!

Blade Runner 2049

With the trailer for next year’s much ballyhooed Blade Runner 2049 now running on a constant loop in our minds, a handful of new photos from the sequel we didn’t know we wanted have arrived via Entertainment Weekly, showcasing stars Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling. Of the two, the latter looks more than a little like Deckard in Ridley Scott’s original science-fiction masterwork…

Alien: Covenant

In other Ridley Scott-related news, the latest pic from Alien: Covenant brings back a very creepily familiar location from the 1979 classic, one which yours truly may or may not have walked through when I visited the film’s set in Sydney earlier this year…

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

As both Blade Runner 2049 and Alien: Covenant demonstrate, everything old is new again when it comes to big screen sci-fi these days. But that hasn’t stopped Lucasfilm from injecting a little bit of its new Star Wars Rebels TV series into a familiar film locale in Rogue One. Many fans have noticed and been talking about the presence of the show’s principal ship, the Ghost, in the film’s big space battle. But did you know a member of the Ghost’s crew can be seen at the Rebel base on Yavin? Check out the following image…

xXx: Return of Xander Cage

Ah, nothing like a little Vin Diesel machismo to make my life complete. With the star returning to the role of the extreme sports enthusiast/superspy he created in xXx, we’ve got ourselves a new clip of Vinnie D in a high-speed motorcycle chase in xXx: Return of Xander Cage. James Bond, eat your heart out…

Dune

dune-remake-112116

While David Lynch’s Dune (pictured above) has its admirers, the film isn’t exactly the most faithful adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Hugo Award-winning epic, which is still arguably the finest pure science-fiction novel ever written in the English language. So my heart swells knowing Herbert’s book could finally be getting its due on screen. The Dune remake may soon have a director, and word on the streets is that Blade Runner: 2049 helmer Denis Villeneuve is in early talks to take the job. We haven’t heard anything official just yet, so for the time being file this news under “Cautiously Optimistic.”

How to Be a Latin Lover

Finally today, we’ll leave you with a laugh. Funnyman actor-director Ken Marino has assembled a motley cast that includes Salma Hayek, Rob Lowe, Kristen Bell, and Rob Riggle, and topped it off with Mexican superstar Eugenio Derbez in How to Be a Latin Lover, a comedy about an aging lothario who just doesn’t know when to quit. Here’s the first trailer…
