Last week, Sigourney Weaver was brave enough to head to the most feared part of the galaxy: New Jersey. The actress stopped by North Bergen High to say hello to the talented high schoolers who put on a pretty impressive stage production of Alien. Ridley Scott, director of the O.G. Alien film, as well as recent prequels, was so impressed when he heard about the production that he donated $5000 for an encore performance. It was that encore that Weaver showed up at, appropriately blowing the minds of the entire cast. You can see Weaver stopping by below, and you can also watch the full play, which North Bergen High uploaded to their YouTube page.

Last weekend, a high school stage production of Alien went viral when images and video of the impressive play by a New Jersey drama club hit the web. The hype was enough to gain the attention of the official Alien Anthology account from 20th Century Fox (which may be in the hands of a Disney employee now), but now the students will be riding a whole new wave of pride thanks to some praise from Alien director Ridley Scott and the film’s star Sigourney Weaver.

If you haven’t gotten around to seeing The Predator yet, which is now available on home video, you should know that it has a totally insane ending that sets the stage for a crazy sequel. But the ending was almost even more ludicrous than the one that ended up in theaters, and it would have brought the Predator franchise back around to its rivalry with the Alien franchise.
UPDATE: Another alternate ending would have brought back another character from the Alien universe as well. We’ve added details about that in our original story below.

We’re almost a decade removed from the record-breaking box office success of James Cameron‘s Avatar, and we’re still years away from seeing if the long-gestating Avatar 2 will reignite audiences’ interest in the fictional world of Pandora. It’ll be even longer than that before we see Avatar 4 and 5, but despite Cameron’s assertion that those planned sequels aren’t sure bets, production is apparently already underway. And the franchise has already made at least one huge improvement: Cameron and his team have ditched the Papyrus font they used in the first movie.
In a new interview, Avatar star Sigourney Weaver says she’s “busy” working on those sequels now. She also talks a little about the new character she’s playing, her experience filming Avatar 2 and 3, and whether or not we’ll ever see Alien 5 directed by Chappie filmmaker Neill Blomkamp. Read Weaver’s quotes and take a look at the new Papyrus-free Avatar logo below. Read More »
