The “Prometheus” Blu-ray is on its way and, despite many people being left hugely disappointed by Ridley Scott’s latest, there still seems to be a fair bit of excitement surrounding the home release. Maybe it’s because of what Ridley Scott has been able to transform his films into in the past when given a second crack at the whip, or maybe it’s in the wild hope that there may be enough amongst the special features to make sense of the original film. Perhaps it’s just to see some more of the stunning visuals, who knows?

With "The Bourne Legacy" and "The Expendables 2" landing over the last couple of weekends, we're pretty much at the tail end of the tentpole-laden summer movie season. The rest of the month finds classic late-August programmers like "Premium Rush," "The Apparition" and "The Possession" hitting theaters before attention will be turned to the fall festival season with Venice, Telluride, TIFF, and NYFF all on the way.

There’s no hiding the fact that Ridley Scott’s summer sci-fi adventure “Prometheus” was divisive amongst moviegoers and critics alike, and we certainly had some heated discussions of our own here at The Playlist. But now that the dust has settled – and we’re a little over two months away from the film’s theatrical release – it would seem like it’s time to put away all “Prometheus” verbal sparring for now...at least until the DVD/Blu-ray comes out.

Franchises. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. And if you're Hollywood, you just can't live without them, period. The Hollywood Reporter has done a quick rundown of would-be series likely to spawn sequels in their latest issue, and if you've been following the box-office numbers, none of the choices should be much of a surprise.

Earlier this year, Guillermo Del Toro hit his official fansite to bring sad tiding to fans about his long developing passion project, "At The Mountains Of Madness." With "Prometheus" seemingly touching on some of the same creation mythology that H.P. Lovecraft outlined in his celebrated and hugely influential novella, Del Toro believed his film was doomed: "I assumed the greek metaphor [of the title] alluded at the creation aspects of the HPL book. I believe I am right and if so, as a fan, I am delighted to see a new RS science fiction film, but this will probably mark a long pause -if not the demise- of ATMOM." But never say never?

Tyler Perry and lots of other people didn't like "Prometheus." Some other people did. And between the two there have been a lot of conversation about Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi and quasi "Alien" prequel about what it all means and where it could possible go from here. At any rate, when it arrives on Blu-ray, as expected, there will be plenty more to explore.

It's no secret that Hollywood have been running scared the last few years. Falling admissions, the ever-present threat of piracy, a collapse in the DVD market...these are dark times for the major studios. But there has been a glimmer of hope, thanks to certain exhibition techniques with both large-screen IMAX and 3D becoming virtually requirements when it comes to major tentpoles, with the subsidies on ticket prices as a result helping to boost grosses for many major movies, and giving others -- like rereleases of "Titanic" and "Star Wars" -- a new lease of life. Hell, theaters are even trying to make an extra dollar or two with D-Box vibrating seats, of all things.

Well, if you've longed for the words Tyler Perry and "Prometheus" to appear in the same news story, today is your lucky day. It seems that Ridley Scott's sort of "Alien" world movie still has people talking, and opinions, as always, are fiercely divided. So leave it to Perry -- the man who has made cross-dressing into a money-making machine -- to weigh in with his own erudite thoughts on the film.

Tired of hearing about “Prometheus?” Well, what else are we cinephiles supposed to talk about? “That’s My Boy”? “Snow White and the Huntsman”? “ROCK OF AGES"!?! Anyways, for those still involved in the discussion of all things regarding director Ridley Scott’s divisive summer blockbuster, “Prometheus,” a bit of new information has leaked regarding one of the film’s many ambiguities. Suffice to say, spoilers for “Prometheus” follow:

Kids sure do love these CGI ‘toons. “Madagascar 3D: Europe’s Most Wanted” took over the box office for a second straight week, handily defeating holdovers and two new big releases despite falling off a bit heavier than your usual kids’ flick (41.1%). Having grossed $120 million domestically so far, the film is certainly playing up to expectations, currently performing in the vicinity of the previous installment. And it had better -- next week, the Pixar beast looms, with “Brave” taking both the family audience and a number of those 3D screens.
