From the Prometheus IMDb FAQ: It should be noted that AvP franchise is not considered part of the official canon of the Alien saga [...] Prometheus is considered by both Ridley Scott and the film's producers to be the first film in the Alien series. From an interview with Damon Lindelof: [...] Look, as to what’s canon and what’s not canon, for ...

There are subtle clues inside the films to establish their individual timeframes, but no concrete evidence that they are connected in any way beyond the actor Clint Eastwood, and any connecting mannerisms he places in the character. Sergio Leone himself said that it was merely a packaging ploy by the American distribution company to link the films. The best ...

Simply put, the story of Fast and Furious is not in the order that the movies are released. A bit of this post is a little speculative since one of the movies is in pre-production, but the cast has already been confirmed. Obviously there are some spoilers below tying it all together. The first movie - The Fast and The Furious (2001), ends with Brian ...

To answer your main question, X-Men First Class is based before X-Men Origins. X-Men First Class is based in the 60s. In 1962, the United States government enlists the help of Mutants with superhuman abilities to stop a malicious dictator who is determined to start world war III. In Origins, Striker doesn't approach Wolverine until the 70s. ...

As Wikipedia says - Prometheus was originally intended as a direct prequel to the 1979 science fiction horror film Alien, set approximately 30 years before the events depicted in the film. While the finished film explored a more stand-alone mythology based upon the race of giant beings discovered by the crew of the Nostromo in Alien, it is, as ...

If I understand your question(s) correctly, Vincent Vega, played by John Travolta, is probably the closest character to tying all of the events and characters together as most of the events involve him. If you were to take all of the events and re-arrange them so that they were in chronological order then it would be as follows... Vincent and Jules drive ...

Batman Begins (2005) was made as a full reboot to the franchise, effectively erasing anything accomplished in the previous movies, regardless of their connections. After a series of unsuccessful projects to resurrect Batman on screen following the 1997 critical failure of Batman & Robin, Nolan and David S. Goyer began work on the film in early 2003 ...

Firstly, the post-credits scene from X-Men 3 hints at his survival. If for any reason you can't view the video, this is what happens (from the wiki): After the credits there is a scene at the hospital, where the comatose man from the video that Xavier showed his students is lying in a hospital bed. Dr. Moira MacTaggart enters the room to see the ...

I haven't seen X-Men: Days of Future Past, so I can't comment on whether this was shown in the film, but this site does include quotes from the director, Bryan Singer, on the issue: That wasn’t the only tempting breadcrumb that Singer threw to Empire, as part of the organization’s Days of Future Past marketing blitz. Fans who’ve been paying close ...

I'm pretty sure Vantage Point (2008) has to be in the mix, as it's the same events as viewed from 8 different witnesses. I'm not sure exactly how long the span is, it's been a while since I saw it, but I feel like the main body of the movie covers the same 10 or so minutes several times.

Although the fantastical plots of TV shows like Dr. Who and Futurama might trump it, The Tree of Life from 2011 must be a serious cinematic contender. Its story spans the beginning of the universe until present day (showing us along the way the big bang, the creation of the solar system and the extinction of the dinosaurs), which means approximately 13.8 ...

According to this Marvel timeline: In 1973: "Early" scenes of X-Men: Days of Future Past are set. Mark I Sentinels are created. Between 1973 and 1996, Trask produces 8,732 Mark I Sentinels for the governments of the United States, China, Russia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, India and the United Kingdom.

Pulling from the The Comic Board Forum (and from IM3), we know that: December 31, 1999, Tony Stark learns about Extremis from Maya Hansen. October, 2006, Aldrich Killian injects himself with Extremis. February, 2008, Killian goes on to find new recruits (including Ellen Brandt, Chad Davis, Eric Savin, and Jack Taggert) to test Extremis on. Some of the ...

As the name suggests actions you make in life are irreversible, one action leads to another and you can't go back to change them. This film analyzes what actions lead to the brutal actions of Marcus (Vincent Cassel). Doing this in reverse order forces the viewer to reevaluate his view of Marcus, because in retrospect his actions can be justified by the ...

Further to Paulster's great answer - considering the next episode of Agents of SHIELD takes place immediately after the events of Thor: The Dark World, and will not only be referencing it but will also incorporate a possible piece of Asgardian (or other realm) technology, I believe the AoS storyline is running concurrent to the Marvel cinematic universe. ...

At the end of Fast 6 they show the same clip from Han dieing in Tokyo Drift, but you see Jason Statham get out of the car that hit Han's. So seven will take place with Dom going to Tokyo (assuming) since he shows up in the end of Tokyo drift

Tokyo Drift felt really out of place in the timeline. Nothing seemed to add up because it was assumed the events occurred either completely independent of Dom's realm, or perhaps directly after 2 Fast 2 Furious based on Dom's appearance at the end of the film. The writers did an amazing job re-introducing Han into the big picture by giving him a small yet ...

The film Run Lola Run takes place over the course of twenty minutes (beating out Vantage Point by three minutes). The film's running time (sorry) is padded out with flashbacks and flashforwards. The links lead to the relevant info according to Wikipedia.

It got established in Halloween II (1981 film), the same link present the full story of the film. It's better to go through it again to get to know the exact situation.

Well, wbogacz already gave a very good answer to the question about the chronology and its clarity. But as to if it was intended or how far it is consistent with the overall story, I think it is rather us audience who just want to draw a connection between different characters where there is none. This motivation lead at least to the coining of the term "Man ...

If you want to know how he survived , then he just transferred his consciousness to his identical brain dead twin brother. From marvel-movies.wikia.com In an after-credits scene, Xavier speaks to Moira McTaggert through the body of a comatose man, implying that his consciousness survived by transferring itself into the body (An action that Xavier ...

Since time is a relative concept we would have to take that into consideration. The Chronicles of Narnia cover minutes of time on earth but years in the fantasy land of Narnia. The same would apply to the Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland.

I think the original Batman with Keaton is set in the 1940s or so. I don't think Batman Begins go"s back to the golden age. I'm pretty sure the Batman story gets retold over and again as time progresses.

From the episode "Band or DJ?" we know that Barney and Robin's wedding took place on "Sunday, May 25, 2013". The How I Met Your Mother episode, "The Poker Game"(S09E05) specifically states that the events of the Halloween party took place... "6 years earlier" which means that it was most likely Wednesday, October 31, 2007, assuming the party was ...

This is difficult because many of the movies/episodes overlap. Most notable is "Fury’s Big Week" which is the name for the week in which "The Incredible Hulk", "Iron Man 2", and "Thor" all occurred simultaneously. There are scenes in "Thor: The Dark World" dating back to 2987 B.C. even though the majority occurred in 2012. Similarly, "Captain America: The ...

It's difficult to tell how long does it actually take to tell the story in the police office in The Usual Suspects. It could actually take few minutes even if the fictitious stories told to police officer take much longer to picture in the movie with all the details. We can find out if we clock only the speech of the hero as the narrator and scenes in the ...

The winner would probably be "The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy" from 2005. At the end of the movie, we see the main characters travel from (approximately) the present day to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, a span of some 1010120 years into the future.
