At first I was disappointed by this news, but it's still Ridley Scott doing Sci-Fi again (finally!). Looking forward to this still.

great new, Im not a fan of alien, I hate the ''horror'' side of this sci-fi. Still is, Ridley scott is one of my favorites director, the majority of my favorites movies are from him. I prefer historical epics but I loved Blade Runner, I trust him do delivery.

I feel slightly disappointed that we're not gonna get the Alien prequel that was first planned, although on reflection maybe it's good that it's not going ahead that way. The Alien franchise as a quadrilogy is more than enough really. However, news of there being a new Ridley Scott SciFi movie is pretty damn exciting! It'll be interesting to see how they're going to use the 'Alien DNA' in this new project. I dont think I've ever seen a bad movie from Ridley Scott so this is definitely something I'm already looking forward to.

I agree completely. But I have seen a bad Ridley movie...Robin Hood.

Did you really think it was bad? or just disappointing for Ridley Scott?
Jan 18 - 08:51 AM
I didn't like it period. Kingdom of Heaven (the Director's Cut is all I've seen) is a somewhat okay movie, but pure shit coming from Ridley Scott.

Fair enough, to each their own.

I quite liked his take on Robin Hood, actually. It brought a new interesting flavour to an otherwise well told story. I think though, everyone favours the Kevin Reynolds version (Kevin Costner, Christian Slater, et al). Or of course, the old Disney animation!

I just recently watched Costner's version. Didnt like that one either. I really need to rewatch Scott's, because I know it was better than Costner's. Or really, they were just different. One was Gladiator mixed with Braveheart, the other was just fun and over the top.

Is this going to have anything to do with the large petrified creature in the crashed ship from the first Alien? I thought I remembered Scott saying he wanted to explore this?

I should be happy - a prequel would have been unlikely to relieve the troubled franchise. But I can't help being a bit sad... no more aliens for a while.

I'm a fan of the first two Alien movies. But David Fincher's Alien 3 was awful. Resurrection was a slight improvement, but the Alien vs Predator series killed it. Only Ridley Scott or James Cameron could breathe life back into this series.

Lets Ridley ride this thing.........everytime he went to the sci-fi genre he made two marvelous films. (Alien and Blade Runner)

That was before the CGI crap though. Lucas did great movies also remember...

Hang on did he say at any point that this film is not a prequel anymore?
Jan 18 - 12:43 PM
Would have been interesting to see the prequel idea, but in all honesty, I am very happy for this news. Better not to explain the origins of the Alien; the mystery is part of what has kept them fascinating and interesting for three decades. Glad Scott is getting back into Sci-Fi, though. Anybody know if he is still attached to The Forever War?
I'm equal parts disappointed that it's not going to be a flat out Alien movie and relieved that it's completely original. This makes sense. Something didn't feel right about Scott filming just another movie about those nasty aliens trapping people in spaceships. I'm still not clear if this even takes place in the same universe. "Alien DNA" could mean a story that takes place before Ripley's time or it could simply mean a return to that kind of film making.

Good move, and I think the point is what can the Alien films show what audiences hadn't seen already because they pretty much showed everything that needs to be shown!
