Alien 5

I didn't get into the Alien movies until about 5 years ago when my wife got me the big boxset and I actually sat down and watched Alien - which I didnt even know existed. I had always thought Aliens was the first movie so you can imagine my excitement when I saw Alien (directors cut), then the next two. The Alien 3 directors cut is actually an awesome film. Ive never seen the other version but I heard it's disjointed and confusing - so I have no interest in seeing it.
Alien 4 was interesting and we will leave it at that

Alien 5!!!!

Quote:
20th Century Fox has closed a deal with director Neill Blomkamp to develop a new “Alien” movie, sources confirm.
The untitled sci-fi project is separate from “Prometheus 2,” which Fox is still making with Ridley Scott.
Blomkamp, who directed “District 9″ and the upcoming Sony feature “Chappie,” had been teasing the project in recent months but said the extra-terrestrial reboot was likely abandoned. It was supposed to star “Alien” veteran Sigourney Weaver.
But on Wednesday Blomkamp confirmed the tentpole was back on track at Fox.
“So I think this is officially my next film,” he confirmed on Instagram.
It’s unclear whether Weaver is still attached to the movie.
According to insiders, the new “Alien” takes place years after the “Prometheus” sequel. Scott is producing both films through his production company Scott Free.
“Prometheus,” also distributed by Fox, was “loosely based” on the “Alien” franchise and earned over $400 million worldwide. But the 3D movie opened to mixed reviews, and Fox hopes Blomkamp, who last directed “Elysium,” can take the franchise to the next level.












I know Prometheus was very unpopular with lots of people but I absolutely loved it, plot holes and throw away characters and all. So Im super excited by the idea of Prometheus 2

I just watch The Tonight Show on Hulu and Weaver was on it and mentioned a new Aliens movie.

Count me in as excited!

Ugh. Just hope it doesn't suck. Prometheus begged more questions than it answered...

Isn't this supposed to be the one where we never see the alien? Because if that's true, count me out. Fuckin' lame.

Prometheus left a lot of things hanging which just means they have the chance to answer a bunch of things i the second one!
If the second one is amazing, it will make the first one better

"Alien(s)" is my favourite franchise. In fact, I just bought the boxed set again for the third time (VHS, DVD and now Blu-Ray). I enjoyed "Prometheus" a lot. Glad to hear there is more on the burner!

Sci-Fi is mind expansive and the writers of these epics have the ability to see things in the future that we make happen.

Aliens 5 will be excellent.

Correct me if I'm wrong [and I frequently am] but aren't there two different movies set in the Alien universe: Prometheus 2 and also Alien(s) 5?

Ridley Scott directing Prometheus 2 and executive producing Alien 5 with Neil Blomkopf [sp?] directing?

yes - and if I read the article correctly, Alien 5 is loosely supposed to take place after Prometheus

but they take place on different worlds (theoretically) so I suppose it's kind of irrelevant.... or is it....

my personal fascination with the franchise doubled when we lost HR Giger and I started researching the guy. Not only how kind of screwed up in the head he was, but how he insisted on working on a lot of the sets himself to make sure they were perfect.

and i doubt there will be any sets that amazing made, ever again






fast forward to 39.30

The first was a genius horror movie, the rest have been formulaic shit for the most part. I hated District 9 (and everything else he's done so I won't be holding my breath on this one either).

That's what happens when producers see a cash cow. The first film was crafted by Dan O'bannon, and he was cut out of getting to do any writing for the other films (and from directing the first). Scott has become a egocentric hack of a director/producer and managed to ruin the legacy of two great Science Fiction films (Alien, and Blade Runner), by blending unrelated works into the pus-oozing miasma of elementary schoolboy fantasy that is Prometheus.

It's taken years, literally years.

But we finally find common ground.

Alien was great.
Aliens was just as great.

You've lost me at that point. Alien 3? WTF? They crash landed in Yorkshire.
Alien 4 was just stupid.

Prometheus was the worst.
