Movie websites become desperate for page views. As a result, rumors take flight and somehow get upgraded briefly to "truth" before the filmmakers can sort out the misinformation. Lately, however, a spate of big releases have been playing a lengthy game of chicken with film websites, the suggestion being that false information was being leaked in order to throw publicity hounds off these movies' tracks.

A project that we were actively dreading only a few months ago, we are now looking forward to Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" more than any film from the director in years. The helmer's always worked best in the sci-fi field ("Alien," "Blade Runner") and the idea that he's working on a project that's evolved from a full-blown prequel to the "Alien" series to (for the most part -- and we'll get to that in a moment) something very different, and more original, is a fascinating one. While the script has since received a major overhaul from "Lost" and "Star Trek" writer Damon Lindelof, if even a small fraction of the bold ideas featured in the Jon Spaihts draft we read make it to the screen, it's going to be very different from every other sci-fi tentpole out there.
