Two fans of the Alien franchise took their maternity pictures to a whole other level. We just had to find out more.
Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Ellen, is back.
Let’s be real. You’ve had dozens and dozens of chances to buy high-end, intricately detailed statues of the titular star of Alien before. Tell me: How many chances have you had to do the same for the true (not-played-by-Sigourney-Weaver) star of Alien, Jonesy the Cat?
When we say pop culture is iconic, we don’t usually mean it this literally.
Oh, you thought sending a kid in a wheelchair careening off a giant cliff was bad enough? A new clip has surfaced from the iconically bad ‘80s film, Mac and Me, and let’s just say child murder was apparently not off the table for this family-friendly fare.
When Fox approached William Gibson to write a script for Alien 3 back in the late ‘80s, the studio imagined that the lauded author would bring his distinct cyberpunk vision of the future to the franchise. Instead, Gibson turned in a complicated, politically-charged script influenced by the Cold War. Due to a number of…
So much great art centers on conflict. Love and pain. Heroes and villains. Good and evil. Black and white. And, in one special case, Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo.
Lynda Carter says she’s could be making an appearance in Wonder Woman 2. There’s more rumors about who’ll be joining Harley Quinn in the Birds of Prey movie. Colin Trevorrow is already teasing Jurassic World 3. Plus, intriguing casting for Stranger Things’ third season, and new looks at Cloak and Dagger. Spoilers get!
Look, The Shape of Water is great. Seriously, it is. But when you look at film history, the fact that The Shape of Water is the first science fiction film to ever win Best Picture is kind of weird. There have been decades and decades of phenomenal scifi films better than The Shape of Water, so for it to get the award…
The Avengers, the Mad Max movies, Rick and Morty, The Legend of Zelda, Daft Punk, David Bowie, Star Trek, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more. Artists Matt and Miles Ritchie both love that shit. However, the father and son each bring a very different perspective to their favorite pop culture and those divergent…
In the realm of science fiction, it’s hard to get bigger than Star Trek or Star Wars. Each has a long history in multiple mediums, massive fan bases, and are still going strong. It would be difficult for any franchise to match those levels of success, but Ridley Scott thinks Alien should have.
While there are mixed feelings about whether Ridley Scott’s newer movies set in the Alien universe are good are not, there’s a general consensus that neither Prometheus nor Alien: Covenant have really done much to move the franchise forward. But that isn’t stopping Scott from planning his next film in the series.
Though Ridley Scott’s last two Alien movies have been incredibly divisive, they at least have had one thing in common: the alien. However, in a new interview, Scott suggests that after Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, the iconic creature may have overstayed its welcome.
Few movies lend themselves to as broad a visual representation as Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. There’s the monolith, the characters, the costumes, the cosmos, and so much more to draw from. In this new poster, though, artist Matthew Woodson truly grounds the space drama in a surprising way.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's round up of all the delightful toys hurtling around the internet demanding our attention this week. This time, everything is giant! (Except for the very tiny lightsaber remote!) But apart from that, if you want large robots, large dinosaurs, and large Jason Momoas, we’ve got the toys…
For years The Walking Dead has been one of the most popular shows on television. Unfortunately for its fans, TV shows rarely get really beautiful, movie-quality posters made for them. So one of the show’s executive producers, Greg Nicotero, decided to change that. And he decided to rip off the best of the best.
David Huggins is a 72-year-old man who believes he lost his virginity to an alien. He also believes he’s been visited by aliens for the majority of his life. It’s an easy story to laugh at, but in Brad Abraham’s documentary Love and Saucers, you want to believe Huggins. And, frankly, it’s hard not to.
Carl Rodd, the owner of the Fat Trout Trailer Park in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, has a sign on his door. It reads: Do not wake before 9am under any circumstances. When two FBI agents defy those instructions, he’s understandably dazed and angry. In a movie full of surreal terror, it’s a perfect moment precisely…
Alien: Covenant may not have been the movie that everyone wanted but, at the very least, Ridley Scott kept up his long tradition of working with practical effects. A new, behind-the-scenes featurette shows part of the process for making the ooey-gooey xenomorph eggs in Alien: Covenant.
