Neill Blomkamp revealed his ideas for a new Alien movie, and soon after his deal to make them a reality, during the promotional runup to his latest film, Chappie. Now that Chappie has been out for a couple weeks, all the focus is likely to go to Alien in the months going forward. And in a new podcast appearance, Blomkamp is already talking about the upcoming film. Specifically, he talks about its relationship to Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus films, saying that he had to change one thing in order to avoid getting in Scott’s way. Read More »

Neill Blomkamp debuted his ideas for a new Alien film via concept art that very clearly showed Hicks, the hero from Aliens who is killed in the opening shots of Alien 3. And his first comments on video about the project, released yesterday, seemed very clear. “There’s Alien, and Aliens, then this film,” he said. That, along with comments from Sigourney Weaver about giving Ripley’s story a proper ending, all made a clear point: this upcoming film will basically ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection.
But now Blomkamp says his intent is not to undo the third and fourth movies — it’s just that he wants his film to connect to Alien and Aliens. Read More »
Fox is making Neill Blomkamp‘s new Alien movie, and Sigourney Weaver is definitely on board to reprise her Ellen Ripley role. And while we still don’t know the story, despite the teasing glimpses provided in concept art such as the pieces above, we do know something new: Blomkamp’s Alien will basically disregard Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection as the director says he’s designing the film to sit in sequence after Aliens.
Check out a video interview with Blomkamp and Weaver discussing the next Alien film, below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’re going to see that Neill Blomkamp Alien movie after all.
Details are scarce but Wednesday afternoon, the District 9 and Chappie director tweeted that his radical reimagining of the Alien universe – which was first revealed via concept art – will “officially” be his next film. Variety then confirmed the fact with 20th Century Fox and found out Ridley Scott is producing. Read more below. Read More »
Tyler Stout is one of the most popular poster artists out there today but, in 2014, he was relatively quiet. Kind of like space. Which leads us to his first poster of 2015, Ridley Scott‘s Alien.
The poster was revealed Wednesday night at a special screening of Alien at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin Texas and the remaining posters will go on sale Friday January 30 at a random time. See the full images of the Tyler Stout Alien poster below. Read More »
Last month after we learned that Sony was discussing a possible crossover movie between 21 Jump Street and Men in Black, I wrote a list of 5 Movie Crossovers That Could Be Ridiculous Fun.
One of my ridiculous ideas was for 20th Century Fox to make Die Hard 24/7: Alien Invasion — John McClane, now head of security at a huge Casino resort either in China (because, well, co-production money) or Dubai, who is working to stop one of the biggest heists in the history of ever (another current trend). As it turns out, the mastermind trying to rob the casino is 24’s Jack Bauer (his daughter Kim is being held hostage, cougar or something, and he is being forced into it). The story starts as McClane vs. Bauer but all hell breaks loose when an alien ship crashes within the state of the art complex, which of course goes into lockdown and a swarm of xenomorphs are let on the lose. The two men must now work together against the bigger threat.
Ridiculous? Yes. One of my favorite comments from the post was “Die Hard/24/Alien Crossover is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. I’d see it at least six times at the theatre.” The idea isn’t completely original, Fox was at one time developing a Die Hard 24/7 film which would have seen John McClane and Jack Bauer team up against a global threat but for whatever reason, the project fell into development hell and we got that horrible 24: Live Another Day event series instead. Anyway, this is just a long intro to present a fan made trailer that was sent to me that almost visualizes my ridiculous crossover movie pitch. Hit the jump and watch the fan made DIE HARD: Alien VS Predator Teaser Trailer.

Neill Blomkamp has already given us an alien movie, but it seems he could have also given us an Alien movie. The District 9 director posted some very interesting pictures from an Alien project he was working on at one point but has since left. The trove of images include illustrations of an older Ripley and a scarred-up Hicks, concept art of a Weyland-Yutani building, a photo of a xenomorph model, and much more. See all the Neill Blomkamp Alien material after the jump. Read More »
