Studio Coffee Run 6/8/12: Prometheus, Dredd, Arrow, etc.

Behold and look upon this Prometheus IMAX poster to the left (Image via Shocktillyoudrop). Then look upon the last of these Prometheus promo clips in preparation for Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel magic opening today. Then check these cast interviews with Noomi Rapace, talking about how she channeled Sigourney Weaver for the role, along with Michael Fassbender talking about playing a creepy android. Also feel this: here’s Damon Lindeloff talking with Ridley Scott on videotape and here’s him again talking about a Prometheus sequel to Heat Vision, which could very well happen as the film currently has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 74% (via Shocktillyoudrop, Next Movie, and THR)

And Lindelof just keeps on talkin: at the link he discusses the Batman DC Digital exclusive Batman comic he just made with artist, Jeff Lemire (via EW)

Hmmm… as it would turn out, a gentleman named Will Beall has been quietly scripting a Justice League movie since before The Avengers was even released, while Green Lantern screenwriter, Michael Goldberg, has been working equally quietly on a Wonder Woman script (via Variety)

The Dark Knight Rises’ Christopher Nolan talked at length to Indiewire’s Playlist and mentioned, among other things, that the scale of this film has not been seen since the silent film days, in terms of the number of extras, which totaled 11,000 per day some days. Also of note, there will be no reference whatsoever to The Joker in The Dark Knight Rises. Advance tickets for IMAX screenings of the flick will go on sale on June 11th, btw  (via Indiewire and Deadline)
