It goes without saying that Alien’s xenomorph is just plain cool. But why exactly do we love this grotesque monster so much? YouTube’s kaptainkristian explores that exact question, delving into the delightfully creepy mind of Swiss surrealist artist H.R. Giger and exploring the nuanced cinematic genius behind this…
Extremely infrequent Instagram user Neill Blomkamp took to social media this week to share an enigmatic image, with the vaguest of descriptions: “Working on new things. Currently not alien.” So what might the next project on the Chappie and District 9 director’s slate possibly be?
The Predator is on a mission to destroy a barrage of bean-headed aliens that have invaded a small office—with Boba Fett’s help, of course.
Recently, Sigourney Weaver said that Neill Blomkamp’s still-in-the-ether Alien movie be a new sequel to Aliens, meaning, it would render the series’ existing third and fourth films redundant. Alien 3 may be the most maligned film in the franchise, but it would be a shame to erase Ripley’s adventure on Fury 161, and…
Deckard’s sweet gun in Blade Runner was actually built from parts of real guns. Where a lot of prop weapons from films are just resin poured into a mold and then painted, Deckard’s gun looks and feels like a weapon; there’s a genuine heft to it, something inside clicks when you pull the trigger, and there’s even a…
News of filmmaker Neill Blomkamp’s hypothetical Alien movie has been swirling for the better part of two years. In that time, we’ve heard so many rumors and quotes about it that it’s hard to keep them straight. But a new one is a clear as crystal.
Last night, Elon Musk suggested that Earth is simply a simulation from an alien race’s video game. Why would Musk say this? Because he is one of those aliens.
Fox released this image from the filming of Alien: Covenant, which shows Katherine Waterston in character as “Daniels” for the first time (that’s her on the right). Also, there are wires ripped from the ceiling and lighting that could indicate a fire in the background, which, if she’s in a spaceship, is rarely a good…
Alien collectors who also collect toys can silently weep today as their dream has finally come true. Hot Toys has revealed a 1/6th scale Ellen Ripley figure with full Sigourney Weaver likeness and it’s everything you’ve ever dreamed of.
Today might be “Alien Day” in recognition of the scifi horror classic, but it’s actually tomorrow that a fascinating new layer of this universe gets uncovered in the new comic Aliens: Defiance.
Ellen Ripley, the lead character of the Alien films, is one of the most iconic female heroes in cinema history. And today, during the celebration of the franchise of which she’s the star, her fans have been screwed over in an incredibly crappy way.
Tuesday, April 26, aka 4-26 (as in LV-426), has been dubbed “Alien Day.” To celebrate, several different companies and brands have teamed up to do events related to Ridley Scott’s masterpiece. There will be screenings, Q&As, art shows, special merchandise, and more.
When Neill Blomkamp released art that he had put together for an Alien project that he wanted to work on, it was quickly greenlit, then put on the back burner when Ridley Scott announced his own Alienverse film, Alien: Covenant. According to Sigourney Weaver, Blomkamp might still get to make his film.
Three of the most iconic scifi franchises in history are meeting up once more in Dark Horse’s latest crossover comic, the aptly titled Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens. Want to know more about Dredd’s latest adventure? We sat down with writer John Layman to discuss what makes these series so perfect for crossovers.
Syfy’s space opera The Expanse is getting geared up for its second season, and later this week, the series comes out on Blu-ray and DVD, which means that we can binge on the show all over again. When you watch it again, keep your eyes peeled for a whole bunch of easter eggs.
Veteran actor Harry Dean Stanton turns 90 this year. His wildly varied career contains a few starring roles (the haunting Paris, Texas is a must-watch), but the man’s true gift is portraying memorably offbeat characters that may only appear in a few scenes—but that still improve the entire movie.
As recognizable as the characters in our favorite scifi movies are, the landscapes are what completes the vision. A new poster set by artist Jordan Buckner focuses on these familiar cinematic vistas, and each one is more gorgeous than the next.
If you’re like us, you can’t get enough pop culture art. New movies, old classics, cult oddities—we love it all, and a new show at Los Angeles’ Hero Complex Gallery combines all of that and more.
