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…
The cast of Aliens assembled at Comic-Con to celebrate the iconic science fiction film’s 30th anniversary, and all agreed that James Cameron’s script is a key part of what makes the film a classic. But woven into that strong storytelling are also some of cinema’s most memorable one-liners, as stars Bill Paxton and…
James Cameron put it very delicately when he admitted he didn’t like Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But he has no such restraint when discussing the sequel to his Aliens, the polarizing Alien 3. It begins with the cruel discovery that Aliens’ hard-fought survivors—other than Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley—have all perished.
Whether or not J.A. Bayona’s new film A Monster Calls ends up being any good, we can say one thing for sure: it’s going to be beautiful. And, let’s be honest, if this trailer is any indication, it’ll probably be exceedingly good, too.
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.
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.
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.
Back when Aliens was the number one movie in America, Sigourney Weaver took to Saturday Night Live for their 12th season opener, and took part in an Aliens spoof. The skit is... sort of interesting, but the joke on Ripley randomly removing her jumpsuit for no reason is pretty classic.
Some fans of James Cameron’s Aliens consider Newt the worst part of the movie: Her high-pitched scream, laughable dialogue, it can be painful. If you are one of these people, I have some potentially bad news: Newt might be the star of Neill Blomkamp’s Aliens sequel.
A truly great fantasy fairy tale movie is a rare thing. In the ‘80s, films like The Dark Crystal, The Neverending Story and Labyrinth made the cut. Guillermo del Toro’s early films, The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth, are worthy additions. And next year, we may need to add a new one to the pantheon.
Many of you now know about one of the many things I collect. Another thing on that list is prop replicas of weapons from movies. I’ve got lightsabers and samurai swords, but one thing I always wanted and never got was the Pulse Rifle from Aliens. Now I can build one for under $30.
As a concept, Alien vs. Predator was always kind of cool. A fun fan-idea, blending two great franchises, that worked in comic books and video games. But the movies, while financially successful, aren’t very good and Alien star Sigourney Weaver thinks the idea “caused more problems than it was worth.”
Sharlto Copley (District 9) brought the titular robot of Chappie to life, thanks to performance capture and director Neill Blomkamp, but as it turns out everyone wanted him dead. We spoke with the Chappie'scast — Copley, Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver — about the violence they inflicted upon this adorable robot.
Neill Blomkamp's Alien movie is gaining steam really quickly. The latest news comes courtesy of a Sky Movies interview with Sigourney Weaver and Blomkamp himself, where the two of them lay out where they want this film to go.
Your spirit animal is a honey badger? That's nice. My spirit animal is Sigourney Weaver in a jumpsuit unleashing a plume of hot death over what looks like a dry, potentially disastrous, patch of grass.
Legendary Blade Runner designer Syd Mead helped to inspire the AT-ATs in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, with some "walking tanks" he designed for a U.S. Steel catalog. A few years later, Mead was allowed to do his own walker design, when he created the first art for the power loader in Aliens.
