In a couple of days critics will start seeing "Prometheus," in less than a week it opens internationally, and soon the lid will be off the box of Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi as we'll finally experience what the director has conjured up in his kinda-sorta "Alien" prequel. While diehard fans have been covering their ears and eyes hoping to go in fresh, the Fox marketing team has been on a blitzkrieg dropping numerous TV spots, clips and images from the movie. And well, a few more details have squeaked out in the New York Times profile of Noomi Rapace, adding another dimension to the upcoming film. Warning: there are spoilers so stop reading here if you don't want to know anything more.

What does 20th Century Fox and The Weinstein Company have to do with one another? Good question. Maybe some kind of deal was struck?

The Nice airport is getting a bit less busy, and the cafés and hotels on the Croisette are quieter as the Cannes Film Festival wraps up today. Awards are starting to be handed out and first up are the prizes for the festival's Un Certain Regard category, which tends to feature newer, lesser-known directors and slightly edgier fare than the main competition lineup.

We're sure Catherine Hardwicke and Evan Rachel Wood are still pals, but sometimes scheduling or a variety of other reasons keep two people from working together. Earlier this year it looked like the "Thirteen" star and director were going to reunite on "Plush," but alas, things don't seem to have worked out. But another capable star is looking to come off the bench and sub in.

It seems Malin Akerman is impressing all the right people with her pipes. The actress will be showing the world her take on Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is" in the upcoming "Rock Of Ages," and she's graduating from that '80s neon-colored musical to something a bit grimier, but no less musical.

It has been one helluva week for Pablo Larrain. Easily one of the most buzzed-about movies on the Croisette -- and it wasn't even in the proper festival lineup, playing the Directors' Fortnight instead -- the biggest question being asked among those who saw and fell in love with "No" was how the Cannes selection committee didn't manage to snag this one for themselves. In the end, it doesn't matter -- the movie spoke for itself and has walked away with the top prize, the Art Cinema Award.
