Ridley Scott directs and Katherine Waterston stars in “Alien: Covenant”. “Alien: Covenant” is a science fiction horror film that’s the sixth in the “Alien” franchise and the second of the prequel movies.
'Alien: River of Pain' tells the tragic tale of the residents of LV-426 before Ripley and the Colonial Marines arrived in James Cameron's sequel.
A new poster for ‘Alien: Covenant’ gives us another terrifying glimpse at the iconic xenomorph… and it looks as though it’s on the prowl. Clutching her favourite space rifle as she hides from the slathering alien, Daniels (played by Katherine Waterston) is definitely channelling the Ellen Ripley look. Not bad, and it’s clearly intended to remind us that this is an ‘Alien’ movie following the ‘mixed’ critical responses to ‘Prometheus’.
During an interview with Fandango, Ridley Scott revealed that there’s another ‘Alien’ movie to follow the upcoming ‘Alien: Covenant’. “There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] ‘Alien’,” said Scott as he explained the chronology of all the recent and upcoming ‘Alien’ movies.
Hollywood actor Bill Paxton has passed away at the age of 61, it’s been reported. According to the BBC, Paxton suffered from post-heart surgery complications and is survived by his wife, Louise, and two children. Before making it as a big-time actor, Paxton, like many other famous faces, earned his money doing a low paid, regular job like us normies – he was a car park attendant.
Ellen Ripley, the intergalactic explorer played by Sigourney Weaver in four Alien movies, has long been considered one of the greatest — if not the greatest — action heroines of all time. Both DC (Wonder Woman) and Marvel (Captain Marvel) have hotly anticipated standalone female superhero movies on the horizon, and with this week’s release of Rogue One, the past two Star Wars movies have featured a woman in the lead (after last year’s Force Awakens). “The tide is turning, but hasn’t it been a long time coming?” Weaver asked Yahoo Movies at the New York press day for her latest film, the tearjerking YA adaptation A Monster Calls.
Although Neill Blomkamp’s proposed fifth ‘Alien’ movie has yet to get an official green light, fans of the series are feverishly anticipating it – and they’re not alone. Lance Henriksen, famed for his role in the franchise as the android Bishop, has spoken of his excitement for the ‘District 9,’ ‘Elysium’ and ‘Chappie’ filmmaker’s sequel in waiting. It picks up right where Aliens ended.
Neill Blomkamp’s little art project was not for naught. According to multiple trade reports, 20th Century Fox has signed Blomkamp to direct the project with original Alien minder Ridley Scott producing. Scott will continue to develop a separate Prometheus sequel that will take place in a different time period from Blomkamp’s feature.
On New Year’s Day, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp shocked and delighted sci-fi fans when he uploaded several stunning pieces of concept art for a potential Aliens sequel to Instagram. As it turns out, Aliens studio Fox had no idea that Blomkamp — whose new sci-fi flick Chappie hits theaters in March — was working on what amounts to some spectacular spec art… at least for now. “I was in the end process of Chappie, and when my workload started to decrease, I could start thinking about what I could do next,” Blomkamp told Yahoo Movies on Tuesday.
