It looks like we will be getting a sequel to Prometheus whether we want one or not. 20th Century Fox appears to have decided that due to the fact it made over $400 million worldwide, they can and will move forward with the sequel. According to Variety the ball is rolling.
Genre cinema is often a reflexive thing, it responds to society, and there is no more prevalent issue than the class divide between the 99% and the 1%. The Hunger Games dealt with it, The Dark Knight Rises touched on it, and this year's Snowpiercer is tackling it head on. Elysium continues this theme with the story of a space station where the privileged 'haves' get to live a life of opulence and premium medical care, while the lowly 'have-nots' see out their days on an over-crowded, dying Earth.
The first trailer has been released for Bong Joon-ho's science fiction thriller Snowpiercer.

By now you have probably encountered the debate surrounding Star Trek Into Darkness, namely the Alice Eve nude scene. Some see it as sexist and reductive, others don't see the big deal.
Damon Lindelof took ownership of the issue and apologised. That probably would have been enough, the issue could then die out with everyone chalking it down to an error in judgment.
Until, that is, JJ Abrams appeared on The Conan O'Brien Show to address the issue personally. Initially joking, he revealed there was a similar nude scene in the film featuring Benedict Cumberbatch's "John Harrison" having a shower. If this was an attempt to redress the balance, it was a huge miscalculation. If anything it only draws further attention to the wrong-headed nature of the scene.
