Re: New Alien film will be a prequel

Someone on another forum,a self confessed geek,mentioned that the crew of the Nostromo already had news of the existence of the aliens prior to the mission.

Aliens died with Aliens 4 and even that was stretching things a bit far!
Yep. Yep. Oh, and Yep.

Re: New Alien film will be a prequel

There are possibilities for more Alien films, a prequel to Alien would be interesting. They could expand more on the human colonisation of the galaxy. They could send some ship full of new Chrisitians to a new world where they intend to await the coming of their lord and saviour, only to be eaten by aliens. Might be worth watching, only if the Aliens win entirely though. If some person (probably a single woman) does survive and destroy all the Aliens then it fit as well with the original alien.

On the other hand I don't see why they can't have an entire film that chronicles the battle between two alien species. Do we need humans in a film to interest us?

Re: New Alien film will be a prequel

For me it was in part about Ripley (and Giger's art, still have his Necronomicon somewhere, not sure if he is still around).

I hope, as the Scotts are involved, for some disturbing, creative visualizations. I expect a militaristic / corporate shooter where the survivor will be the one with the cute tattoo.

Re: New Alien film will be a prequel

I'd still like to see the idea of a human x alien. Or maybe visit the aliens homeworld,see their life story

That would be worth a watch, but would the Aliens have much of a home planet?
Aliens don't (as far as I know) have any technology, they don't build houses or farm animals, so on thier home world they would dominate through killing and breeding, but without a constantly refreshed supply of hosts they would soon die out, wouldn't they?
In fact the Aliens would not have been able to get off planet without the help of some other species. Hmmm, there is a good possibility here, they could start by using something less intelligent as a host, but then get picked up by some space faring alien and use them as hosts, and cross the galalxy. Or they could be at war on their home planet with a host(able) species that they never quite wipe out, but when the host(able) species flees the planet they hitch a ride and plague the galaxy.

What is the back story for the Aliens? Anyone know?

Re: New Alien film will be a prequel

I'm not sure there is an official (cannon) back story yet. I suppose they could go one of two routes: evolved or created. If they evolved, they certainly have a home world or home asteroid and I suspect it's not a very nice place to be (even worse than Carthage!). I believe that the Alien hives are tribal in nature (a definite caste system), so that supports the idea that they evolved. Then again, they could have been created by some previous advanced race for some unknown purpose and they simply got out of hand. Or they could have been a final solution.

Re: New Alien film will be a prequel

Weren't they supposed to have been engineered by the Predator species as prey for the ultimate hunt?

I think that might only be once the AvP arc kicks in. When "Alien" was being written back in the 70s I'm sure they weren't thinking that. My thoughts on the issue would be that there must be a huge volume of food, otherwise they'd burn out. Maybe so many eggs don't get laid naturally by the queen when they're more dominant? I'm just trying to imagine how they'd work as a species in an area "naturally". Or it would work like a huge hive...

Re: New Alien film will be a prequel

The best thing about the first one is that so much was left to imagination, and now they are probably going to hand the answers to us on a plate.

What does an alien look like in a full body shot? We don't find out until the end.

Where do the aliens come from?

Are they a biological weapon?

Who are the dead race that the crew discover at the beginning?

We don't know, and that's the fun.

Re: New Alien film will be a prequel

It needs to be something other than another bug-hunt. That was done in Aliens and there's no need to keep doing it. Truth is, though, if they want to keep the bums on seats it'll be a big stupid rollercoaster, probably involving Vin Diesel. I love Alien, but the sequence is getting increasingly thin. In the absence of original ideas they should just stop. Let it rest in peace.

Hoping for a good one

As usual for me, I do not wish to hear any word or see any preview pretaining to the new ALIEN film until after watching the movie. I confess that I made a huge mistake in viewing a graphic novel of the original film months before it was released....and there were no surprizes for me when I saw it in the theater....argh. However, I'm still a great fan of the first three films.

Since I made that trajic error, I never watch preveiws of a movie that I have an interest in seeing. Because when I saw STAR WARS: The PHANTOM MENACE & HELLBOY (without ever seeing a single trailer for both movies) I was awed by the beauty of both films. So! I will see this new ALIEN flick and hopefully it will be great.
