Since we’re unlikely to get a sequel to the 2012 sci-fi comic adaptation Dredd starring Karl Urban, we’ll have to take solace in a new Dark Horse Comics title featuring the one-man judge, jury and executioner. In a new four-issue series, we’ll see Judge Dredd crossing over with two of the biggest sci-fi franchises that he’s encountered before.
Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens will see Judge Dredd pitted against the tactical, nearly unbeatable Predators, as they both try to survive an onslaught by the galaxy’s ultimate killing machines, the xenomorphs from the Alien franchise. For those who don’t know, this isn’t the first time Judge Dredd has met either of these creatures. Find out more about Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens after the jump. Read More »

Later this month, 20th Century Fox is trying to make Alien Day a thing on April 26th. The makeshift holiday is inspired by LV 426, the place where the Nostromo first encounters the xenomorph eggs that will be the end of them in the classic sci-fi flick Alien. As we previously reported, the day will be bringing a bunch of exclusive collectibles, artwork, clothing and other merchandise, in addition to double feature screenings of Alien and Aliens.
In advance of the holiday, the toy company Super 7 has just offered up a sneak peek at a few of the items they’ll be releasing on Alien Day. See what Alien Day ReAction figures Super 7 has in store below. Read More »

Neill Blomkamp‘s proposed Aliens sequel is probably not going to get made. The District 9 director ignited a whole tank full of flammable internet passion when he revealed that he was developing a direct sequel to James Cameron’s 1986 classic, which would’ve ignored the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection and followed Ellen Ripley and a no-longer-dead Corporal Dwayne Hicks on a new horror-tinged sci-fi adventure. Fans were split: some loved the idea of revisiting these characters while others thought it was an insult to the franchise and to the flawed-but-fascinating sequels.
In any case, Ridley Scott, the godfather of this whole series and the director of the original 1979 Alien, put an end to Blomkamp’s movie by moving ahead with Alien: Covenant, the sequel to his Alien prequel, Prometheus (this probably sounds very confusing to non-initiated). However, this hasn’t stopped actor Michael Biehn, who played Hicks in Aliens, from chatting about Blomkamp’s vision, which would have reunited Ripley with Newt, her surrogate daughter.
For word on what could have been with Blomkamp’s Aliens sequel, hit the jump.

There are a handful of science fiction movies that arrived at just the right time and place to dig their hooks into an entire generation and dictate the look of countless future movies. Soon, all dystopias looked like Blade Runner. All spaceships started to look battered and personal, like in Star Wars. The influence of James Cameron’s Aliens may not ring quite as loud, but you can feel its sticky, razor-sharp tendrils in countless movies and even more video games. Cameron’s Colonial Marines have become the template for the science fiction military hero.
Which brings us to the point we’re trying to make here – everyone remembers the pulse rifle. The weapon of choice for most of the brave, doomed soldiers who lost their lives on LV-426. So when director Neill Blomkamp shows off a new version of this famous movie weapon as part of that new Alien movie he’s supposedly making, we have to sit up and take notice.
Hit the jump for the first look at the new Alien pulse rifle.
