PROMETHEUS

Michael Fassbender spoke with InStyle about his upcoming film "Haywire" and briefly touched on his time filming "Prometheus."

"It’s the must-see film of 2012! I play the humanoid android," Fassbender told InStyle. "The first thing that struck me was a good script. Really intelligent script. A real thriller. Real anticipation. The first alien had that. The atmosphere was thick. You knew that something was going to happen. Which is very rare that you can read that in a script. And also, Ridley Scott is the master. He’s amazing. Really something else to watch him work. His attention to detail. And also his mischievousness, his playfulness. And again, no idea is stupid for him. He’ll let you bring it to the floor and have a go at it. I really, really enjoyed working with him. And of course the cast."

Opens June 8

THE WALKING DEAD

Gale Anne Hurd spoke with Water Cooler Journal on the strength of the show's female characters and teased the future appearance of Michonne.

"Andrea is already undergoing a change in her character from a civil rights attorney lacking survival skills already found in some of the men (like the deputies Rick and Shane, or the survivalist Daryl) into someone who can take care of herself," Hurd told Water Cooler Journal. "Maggie Greene is a farmer’s daughter who can ride horses better than any of the men, and takes out a walker the first time we see her in the series. And one of the most kick ass characters from the comic book is Michonne, a samurai sword wielding woman, who will be introduced in future seasons."

New episodes premiere February 12 on AMC
