Ridley Scott Confirms the Next Alien Film Will Not Feature Aliens

Published

on

Last month director Ridley Scott told the world that the next film in the Alien saga was going to get rid of the xenomorphs (and aliens altogether) in favor of spending more quality time with the universe’s A.I. – which I took to (hopefully) mean more Michael Fasbender.

Well, it looks like Scott is sticking to his guns with this one and let EW know in a recent interview that both he and the Alien franchise are done with aliens.

“I think what we have to do is gradually drift away from the alien stuff,” Scott says. “People say, ‘You need more alien, you need more face pulling, need more chest bursting,’ so I put a lot of that in Covenant and it fitted nicely. But I think if you go again you need to start finding another solution that’s more interesting. I think AI is becoming much more dangerous and therefore more interesting.”

While I’m totally down for more Michael Fassbender in future Alien films, how about Scott and his team just use the xenomorph a bit more like the original film did: In the shadows and f*cking scary. Not in full-blown CGI battles. After all, Scott should know what I mean. He directed the original classic.

What do you think of future Alien movies without the aliens? Let us know below!

Synopsis:

Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, members (Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup) of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think to be an uncharted paradise. While there, they meet David (Michael Fassbender), the synthetic survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous when a hostile alien life-form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival.

Published

Later this year we will see the release of the new horror anthology Nightmare Cinema. The film comes ot us from directors Mick Garris, Joe Dante, David Slade, Ryuhei Kitamura, and Alejandro Brugues and stars Mickey Rourke as The Projectionist.

Today we have word via the MPAA that the horror anthology has been given an R rating for “horror violence/gore, grisly images, language, some sexuality, and brief nude images.” And all of that sounds like good times to me!

Are you excited about this new horror anthology? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Nightmare Cinema will premiere at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival.

Synopsis:

A series of down-on-their-luck individuals enter the decrepit and spine-chilling Rialto theater, only to have their deepest and darkest fears brought to life on the silver screen by The Projectionist – a mysterious, ghostly figure who holds the nightmarish futures of all who attend his screenings. By the time our patrons realize the truth, escape is no longer an option. For once the ticket is torn, their fate is sealed at Nightmare Cinema.

Like many of you out there, I’m really looking forward to Blumhouse’s upcoming direct sequel to John Carpenter’s Halloween. That’s why I wanted to make sure you guys were aware that the film’s official website is now up and running.

At this time, the site doesn’t have much going for it. But it does have a “save to calendar” feature and I’m sure it’s a site we will be keeping track of over the next few months as some cool stuff is bound to pop up before the film’s release.

You can visit the official site right HERE.

After looking through it make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer and composer.

The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.

Synopsis:

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
