    The hopes and prayers of sci-fi geeks and cinephiles were answered yesterday as news officially came in that Ridley Scott's semi-"Alien" prequel "Prometheus" had landed an R-rating, as all four "Alien" movies did before it.

    20th Century Fox Want 'Chronicle' Director Josh Trank To Helm Reboot Of 'Fantastic Four'

    Last-Minute Reshoots Saved James Franco's Character From Death In 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'

    It has been about two years since James Cameron's "Avatar" destroyed the box office, got nerds drooling and had everyone in Hollywood deciding that everything had to be in 3D (with the director himself leading the chorus).
