  • I was excited before about the 3D but now I'm REALLY excited. I didn't realize Scott was such a fan of it. I honestly think 3D is amazing when used right (none of that post-converted, tons of cheesy pop-out effects added crap).

      Apples and oranges.. Besides, I don't think the trailer for TDK was all that impressive either. I trust Nolan more than any other filmmaker working today. Especially considering he's in those prime filmmaking years like Spielberg & Carpenter were in the Mid 70's to Mid 80's.

      As for this film, like everyone else has said it looks really great. And like Klown said the trailer does show alot of new stuff but it's still able to stay relatively spoiler-free which is awesome.

      And from what we've seen so far I think it's safe to say that Iceland provides some prime real estate for otherworldy filming locations. Can't wait..

        I think I'm warming to the idea too now.

        Doesn't bother me in the slightest. if that's the case we'll no doubt get a director's cut on blu ray complete with anything that was left-out.

          I'd add QT and PTA to that list.

            Not only that, but an experienced director like Scott probably knows how to stretch a PG-13 for all it's worth.

              Trailer looks awesome. I love the fact that they've managed to capture the tone of the original withoput dragging too much of Aliens back in to it (which is where all the spin offs, games, etc have gone wrong). New Giger designs is awesome, a new plot. It looks like it could nail the tone and feel of Alien without having to retread material. Hopefully the film is actually good and does well enough to influence other franchise follow ups.

              Depeche tells it how it is.

                    It's connected to Alien alright, and a lot more than they are letting on.

                    I guess they are just trying to maintain the elements of mystery but from everything I've seen it's a direct prequel.

                    As for a PG-13 rating, who cares. The blu will be be unrated so if there's any gore shots cut out they'll find there way to blu.

                    Besides, I watched Alien last night and if that film was released today it would be PG-13. Besides the chestburster scene, which looks tame by todays standards, there is nothing that warrants an R in that film.

                    • Is it just me, or does the CGI look absolutely perfect in this film? Some of those shots are so obviously green screened, but it all looks incredibly authentic.

                      I think this film might be that next step in visual effects we've all been waiting for.

                      When does this come out again? These trailers are blowing me the fuck away.

                        Agreed. Every shot is a thing of beauty. Just amazing. I think the release date is June 6.

                        • I wasn't so sure about this movie because we Xenomorphs play NO part in the film, but after some convincing from a friend in the forum, I'm going to give it a second chance when it comes out.

                            Give it up, and get banned already. Christ, you're irritating.

                              The effects look flawless. A perfect blend of CGI and real locations and sets.

                              Released on June 8.
