Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant find what they believe to be an uncharted paradise. What the crew discover is a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
The film also stars Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce, returning in their roles from Prometheus, with newcomers Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir and James Franco.
Alien: Covenant is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2017.
Summit Entertainment is pulling out all the stops to promote its upcoming release Enders Game at Comic-Con this year including constructing an 8-room interactive Ender’s Game exhibit for fans in the heavily trafficked downtown Gaslamp district, But what Summit is not doing is iinviting Ender’s Game writer and despicable human being Orson Scott Card to Comic-Con in hopes of keeping down a backlash against the film due to Card’s virulently homophobic attacks on the LGBT Community.
Card and his work (both in fiction and as a board member of the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage) have been at the center of a brewing controversy in the comics industry, which has been reaching the occasional mainstream news outlet, a fact which has not gone unnoticed by executives at the company in charge of a big-budget adaptation of the award winning young adult novel according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“I don’t think you take him to any fanboy event,” says one studio executive. “This will definitely take away from their creative and their property.” Another executive sums up the general consensus: “Keep him out of the limelight as much as possible.”
Card’s status as a board member of the National Organization for Marriage,which works to prevent not only marriage equality but equal civil rights for LGBT Americans, has also expressed his views on gay marriage as worth overthrowing the government for, linked homosexuality with pedophilia, and has stated that he would wants laws that criminalize consensual homosexual sex
Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn.”
Summit must realize that issue is no only Cards homophobic views but its also his ACTIONS that are causing the problem. He donates his time and money to NOM, including sitting on its board of directors. And has publicly spread lies and propaganda about the LGBT community that has fueled hatred in order to try to turn people against them using his public pulpit.
Will hiding Card help save the 110 million dollar movie from potential backlash and boycott? Or will Summit have a PR disaster on its hands for buying the film rights for millions to which Card potentially used to promote anti-gay hatred.
Only time will tell.
*Geeks OUT has launched a campaign called Skip Ender’s Game, urging their fellow geeks to take responsibility for their box-office dollars and make sure that none of them end up in Card’s (or NOM’s) pockets.

“Thunderbirds are go!” became a catchphrase to generations thanks to Gerry Anderson, puppetry pioneer and British creator of the UK sci-fi hit “Thunderbirds” tleevision show.
Anderson passed away peacefully in his sleep on Wednesday at a nursing home near Oxfordshire, England, after being diagnosed with mixed dementia two years ago.
Anderson introduced the use of “supermarionation” _ a puppetry technique using thin wires to control marionettes.
He forever changed the direction of sci-fi entertainment,”son Jamie Anderson told the Associated Press. “Lots of animation and films that have been made in the past 20 or 30 years have been inspired by the work that he did.”
He said the TV show was perhaps his father’s proudest achievement _ along with the cross-generational appeal of his body of work, which also included TV shows “Stingray” and “Space: 1999,” among others.
“He was very much a perfectionist and was never happy with any of the end products although he may have been happy with the responses,” Jamie said, describing how his father would involve himself in every aspect of production. “He wasn’t just someone who sat in a chair barking orders, he managed to bring together great teams of great people and between them with a like mindset produced some real gems.”
In recent years, Anderson and his son had become active supporters of Britain’s Alzheimer’s Society. He was determined, despite his own recent diagnosis, to spend the last year of his life speaking out for others living with dementia to ensure their voices were heard and their lives improved

The Total Recall remake trailer is here starring hunky (and extremely gay friendly) Colin Farrell.
Now I am usually against remakes, BUT If a 80’s Sci-Fi movie could benefit from today’s computer generated special effects technology and the lack of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone in it. Total Recall would be the to remake.
The Total Recall 2012 remake also stars Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, and Ethan Hawke. There has been no casting news so far of a three breasted alien.
