20th Century Fox has released the first official image from Ridley’s Scott’s Alien prequel/sequel known as Alien: Covenant. The first look shows Katherine Waterston’s character revealed to be named Daniels with nothing revealed to be known about the character other than she has short hair. Alien: Covenant will pick up 10 years after the events of Prometheus, and finds a crew aboard the colony ship Covenant headed for a remote planet.

James Cameron has been developing Battle Angel, an adaptation of the Manga series Battle Angel Alita for years now, but with his attention pulled in the direction of the Avatar franchise there has been very little forward progress until recently when Cameron handed over directing duties to Robert Rodriguez, with the filmmaker looking to find the right young woman to lead the film. Now, in a report right here on Collider.com, sources are saying that Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials standout Rosa Salazar has landed the coveted role of Alita.

20th Century Fox has released a set of new Independence Day: Resurgence posters that prove all landmarks in our world are prime destinations for vengeful extraterrestrials. The posters show no building is safe, with the alien invaders targeting the Statue of Liberty, the Washington Monument, the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben.

According to Variety Jake Gyllenhaal is set to reunite with his Prisoners and Enemy helmer Denis Villeneuve for the adaptation of Jo Nesbo‘s critically acclaimed suspense novel, The Son. Villeneuve will direct the film, which follows a long-imprisoned drug addict who stages a breakout on a mission of vengeance when he discovers the surprising truths behind his father’s suicide.
