Katherine Waterston Is Just As in the Dark About ‘Alien: Covenant’ Sequel as Everyone Else

Katherine Waterston Is Just As in the Dark About ‘Alien: Covenant’ Sequel as Everyone Else
Alien: Covenant” may have gotten Ridley Scott’s enduring science-fiction franchise back on track with critics, but the R-rated release couldn’t attract the kind of global audience that would give 20th Century Fox the confidence to keep the series alive. “Covenant” opened in May 2017 and didn’t even break the $75 million mark at the U.S. box office. The film’s global gross was $240 million, a sharp decline from “Prometheus'” $403 million worldwide gross in summer 2012.

The box office response to “Covenant” has put Ridley Scott’s intended sequel on indefinite hold, and not even leading lady Katherine Waterston knows what the future holds for the franchise or her character, Janet Daniels. Speaking to The Playlist while promoting her latest indie, “State Like Sleep,” Waterston could offer no answers when pressed for tidbits about the “Covenant” sequel. In fact, nobody has even spoken to the actress about a potential follow-up film.

‘State Like Sleep’, ‘Rust Creek’ & ‘Mojin’ Sequel Ring In 2019 – Specialty Preview

‘State Like Sleep’ Film Review: Katherine Waterston and Michael Shannon Float Through Enigmatic Neo-Noir

  • The Wrap
As hazy and amorphous as a rain cloud, Meredith Danluck’s “State Like Sleep” does a fine job of recreating the dream-like fog of grief. But it doesn’t go much further, and “somnolence” isn’t an ideal quality around which to build an entire film.

As played by Katherine Waterston (“Fantastic Beasts”), American photographer Katherine has been floating dully since her Belgian movie star husband, Stefan, was mysteriously killed a year earlier. But when her mom (Mary Kay Place) winds up in a Brussels hospital, Katherine is jolted into action. She wants to know what really happened to Stefan, and the more she looks, the less she finds to like.

Stefan’s severe mother, Anneke, appears to be an open book: she bluntly hates her daughter-in-law, whom she blames for stealing her beloved son. A series of effective flashbacks also suggests that she was the Momager from Hell, though

Does Escape Room Stand a Chance Against Aquaman and Mary Poppins This Weekend?

The dominant reign of Aquaman at the box office is set to continue for a third straight week. Warner Bros. has seen big returns from their latest DC offering in its first two weeks of domestic release, with the movie bringing in $52.1 million in its second weekend to claim the box office crown heading into the new year. This week's only other wide release, the horror flick Escape Room, won't quite be enough to take down the King of Atlantis, or Mary Poppins for that matter.

Aquaman will win a pretty rare third weekend at the box office with between $25 and $30 million. To date, the James Wan-directed DC Comics adaptation has already grossed north of $820 million globally and is poised to become the first DC movie to cross the $1 billion mark since The Dark Knight Rises. This was exactly what Warner Bros. needed after what happened with Justice League last year.

“Glass” and “The Upside”: Films to see in January

I said it last year right around this time and I’ll say it again today. There’s no getting around it, this month is not one to get excited about at all, new release wise. January is usually a real dumping ground for films. That’s normally true, but if you try and look hard enough, you can find worthwhile titles hitting screens. This year is no exception, as 2019 has a couple of potentially decent movies hitting in its first month. I can personally vouch for a few that I’ve seen already, so there’s that. Your mileage may vary with these, but if you look hard enough, you’re sure to find a few things to enjoy. For sure, the still expanding 2018 titles are superior, but it’s not all about those. Without any further delay though, here are the first batch of 2018 titles that don’t
