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.

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 »
This new Chappie trailer really makes Neill Blomkamp‘s latest film out to look like his own RoboCop. There’s the designer played by Hugh Jackman who is trying to push a new military/police technology, with a design that looks a lot like the ED-209. There’s the advent of a new drone police force, and the one who ends up with a more-human-than-robot consciousness. But is that just an easy sales pitch to hide the film’s true personality? Check out the trailer below and see if you can figure it out. Read More »
2014 marked the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters and we’ve been celebrating like Gozer in New York City. The original 1984 film was rereleased, and there were traveling art shows, tons of new merchandise and events. For a while, almost every single week it seemed like something Ghostbusters was going on. That culminated last month as director Paul Feig revealed he was going to make a new Ghostbusters movie, something fans have been waiting on for 25 years.
Or maybe that wasn’t the culmination. Maybe the culmination is actually the cover of this week’s Enteratinment Weekly, which reunites four living stars of the film: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver. Harold Ramis passed away earlier this year, and there’s no appearance from Rick Moranis. But Annie Potts and director Ivan Reitman do take part. Below, check out the Ghostbusters reunion photo.
UPDATE: We’ve added some video too. Read More »

The modern, kick-ass female action star started with one name: Sigourney Weaver. So it was no surprise that Sylvester Stallone recently expressed interest in casting the iconic actress for The Expendabelles, the potential female-centric Expendables spin-off. Now it turns out, Weaver actually did get a formal offer, but passed on the role. Read more about The Expendabelles cast below. Read More »
1999 was an amazing year of movies. One of the best ever. Being John Malkovich, The Matrix, Fight Club, Magnolia, Eyes Wide Shut, American Beauty, the list goes on and on. A film that also belongs on that list, but is rarely mentioned in the same space, is Galaxy Quest. The smart, hilarious send-up of geek culture with a sci-fi twist was a modest hit, grossing $91 million worldwide, but continues to be popular because it struck a cultural chord and was so ahead of its time.
The idea of a Galaxy Quest sequel has been batted around for years. In a recent oral history of the film done by MTV, several members of the cast jumped on board. Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Sam Rockwell, Justin Long – along with director Dean Parisot, producer Mark Johnson and writer Robert Gordon all talked about it. They would do a Galaxy Quest sequel in a heartbeat. Read their quotes below. Read More »

Long before there was talk of a lady-centric Ghostbusters reboot or Spider-Man spinoff, Sylvester Stallone was plotting his distaff take on The Expendables. And while no cast members have officially been announced for The Expendabelles as of yet, Stallone does have his eye on one particularly famous female badass.

Sigourney Weaver is playing Ripley again — or, more precisely, she’s remaking her first turn as Ripley. The cast members from Ridley Scott’s Alien (minus Ian Holm and John Hurt) are reprising their roles for a downloadable content (DLC) expansion for the forthcoming game Alien: Isolation. So we’ll hear Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton and Veronica Cartwright once again doing the roles that made them icons for a generation of sci-fi and horror fans.
The expansion will allow players to take control of Weaver’s character Ellen Ripley, and also Captain Dallas, and Parker as they attempt to survive the incursion of the original xenomorph aboard the cargo ship Nostromo. Read More »
