Creating a movie that’s an all-time classic and forever influences the genre it belongs to is quite a feat, and usually means a few mediocre sequels. Creating a sequel that not only lives up to the original but stands as a classic in its own right is an even bigger achievement, and in capitalist terms, pretty much means you just founded an unkillable franchise. No Alien movie created since 1992 has managed to come near the first two, but as long as we have Alien and Aliens, there will always be new attempts, forever and ever.
But the one thing that HASN’T been attempted yet is an Alien TV show. Legion’s Noah Hawley is going to attempt just that for FX next year. Details are still very light; the only thing we REALLY know about the plot is that it takes place on Earth, an idea that was ALMOST the plot of Alien 3. Bot FX chairman John Landgraf had a few words to say about the show during a press conference yesterday…
“[The show] is very grounded. I think Noah is very conscious of the fact that there’s a cinematic universe if you will. While it has some flexibility, the aesthetic that was established by Ridley Scott and I think continued by James Cameron is a part of that universe,” he says. But just to make sure Hawley doesn’t go off on any Legion-like tangents (or does anything Joss Whedon did in Alien Resurrection), Scott WILL have a presence in the production of the show. It will be as a producer, not a showrunner, so decisions will ultimately be Hawley’s to make, but the man will be around.
“So while I think you’ll see some inventiveness and originality that is uniquely Noah, I also think the show will feel like a part of the cinematic universe you’re familiar with in terms of Aliens,” says Landgraf.
The Alien TV show still has no release date, nor has it started filming. Landgraf says at the moment, two scripts have been completed and filming is planned to start in early 2022.
Mother/Android is coming to Hulu and it is disturbing as the horrors of this thriller is more grounded than a zombie apocalypse. Georgia (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her boyfriend, Sam(Algee Smith) are having a baby. It is Moret’s first pregnant role as she had been playing teen roles for a
One of the titles that led the way for anime’s breakthrough in the West during the 90s was the four-part OVA Macross Plus. If you remember renting this from a Blockbuster VHS shelf and watching it on a 13-inch Trinitron, there’s good news ahead: a much better, much clearer, much
You may have played plenty of 2D hack-and-slash platformers before, many involving ninjas, but we guarantee you haven’t played one like Cyjin: The Cyborg Ninja, due out tomorrow for PC. What makes it different? The fact that it’s controlled by the mouse. Yup, you maneuver your ninja in this one
Remember MORK BORG? It was Free League’s love letter to metal culture in the form of a tabletop game that took place in a gnarly occult world. The game was released early in 2020 and, despite the obstacles you’d think would keep it from selling, weathered the pandemic enough to
