Ridley Scott Confirms ‘Alien’ Franchise’s Uncertainty After Disney’s Acquisition of Fox

Just two weeks ago, an unconfirmed report indicated that Twentieth Century Fox had pulled the plug on Ridley Scott’s Alien: Awakening, the tentatively-titled third film in the Alien prequels that would follow both Prometheus and Alien: Covenant. It wasn’t that surprising – considering the weak box office performance of Covenant, and Scott’s ability to go back to the drawing board and reel in a budget – but what really muddied the waters was Disney’s acquisition of Twentieth Century Fox. Would Disney, a family-friendly company, back such a violent, R-rated franchise? Would they look at the numbers of Prometheus and Covenant and say to themselves, “Man, what a great investment!”? I think not, and it’s looking more and more grim for Scott’s plans to turn Alien into the next Star Wars. In fact, after months of posturing that nothing would stand in the way of Awakening‘s early 2018 production, Scott has finally confirmed the franchise’s uncertainty:

“It looks to me that the Fox deal is certainly going to go ahead with Disney, and I’ve been with Fox for a number years now,” the All the Money In the World director told Digital Spy before sounding doubt about Disney’s willingness to make a darker kind of film. “I’m hoping I’ll still probably be there so whether or not they go ahead with such a dark subject, being Disney, as aliens remains to be seen.”

He continued: “I think they should because I think, when people have a hard and fast franchise which has ongoing interest, it’s crazy not to do something with it.

As John Squires and I have expressed on several occasions, we’re hoping that Disney shifts gears and goes back to Neill Blomkamp‘s plans for an Alien 5 with Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn returning to their Aliens role. PG-13 and fun seem to be the right course to take this slowly dying franchise.

Even Scott reveals that PG-13 films are the focus of Disney’s strategy: “That’s why they’re so successful. And they draw the line at anything that crosses PG-13,” Scott told the site. “[If] they find that they’re so successful with that that they want to cross the line and do something a little darker, and if they do that, do they want to do that under Disney or do they want to do that under the Fox banner? I think there’s a business plan afoot definitely.”

With that said, Deadpool and Logan have been big money markers for Fox, and New Mutants is poised to explode as well. It’ll be interesting to see how Disney retools Fox once this merger is approved.

What do you think?

  • Hopefully Disney does the right thing, and gets rid of Scott. Personally, I’m more worried about Mayans MC than anything else.

    • Necro

      It’s funny I just heard about that for the first time literally 20 minutes ago, what’s your worry if you don’t mind me asking?

      • Deadpool, Predator and Alien are safe. They have a track record, a fanbase and the option of turning into PG-13 franchises, if necessary. Anything connected to SOA doesn’t have that; they have a loyal fanbase that seems to only care about the TV show. Granted it’s a successful show, but I can’t imagine ‘Jax Wild Ride’ being added to Disney World.

        • Jeff

          Disney owns Miramax and has since 93 or so. Pulp Fiction was made after they bought it.

        • Necro

          No I can’t imagine it either

    • Reanimated Charlie

      What the hell is Mayans MC?

      • Necro

        FX’s new spinoff show of ‘Sons of Anarchy’

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      disney never does the right thing

      • Jeff

        They do the right thing a hell of a lot more often than WB/DC. Those morons haven’t done anything right yet.

  • Jess Cobb

    They need to cancel ,the predator

    !https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9MGchLolnjA

    • Rick-Taylor

      I completely disagree.

      • Jess Cobb

        Did you watch the video?

        • Rick-Taylor

          Yes, and while I hate the whole trope of children being better at things than adults, I still think it’ll worth a watch.

    • Reanimated Charlie

      That really depends on the upcoming The Predator film. Although, that being said. I did enjoy Predators. It was a B- but still a B and way better than both AVPs.

  • Francesco Falciani

    i think it’s the box office that killed alien, not Disney. i would like to get a 3rd chapter…but after that worldwide box office i bet that even without Dsisney involved Fox would never move forward with that!

  • Brett Lovejoy

    After Covenant, I’m totally fine with the series being done for the time being.

  • Rick-Taylor

    If Disney wants to make another Alien film and do it right, they will release it under either the Touchstone banner or 20th Century Fox banner.

  • Rick-Taylor

    As for me. 1, 2, and 3 are the only canon movies in the series.

    • Saturn

      Yup.

      Personally, I reckon that the next step in the Alien franchise is a total reboot from scratch.
      Remake the original movie, but modernise it a little, perhaps hint that when the eggs are found there are eggs for different species of aliens altogether, not just Xenomorphs, as if the deserted space craft they are discovered in is some kind of Noah’s Ark kinda thing.
      This then opens up the franchise a little more.

      • Jeff

        Uh no. Stupid idea. The xenos would hatch and destroy those other species.

        • Saturn

          Possibly.
          But it’s also possible that precautions were taken by the original inhabitants of the craft (be they Space Jockey’s or something totally different altogether) to keep them separate from the others species’.

  • Necro

    I’m sorry but as a fan I couldn’t get behind a PG-13 ‘Alien’ film! Whether it’s made by Scott or Blomkamp.

    • sliceanddice

      Or Jesus Christ himself.

      • Necro

        Haha! Yeah this PG-13 bullshit needs to go!

  • The Night King

    Ridley, you done fucked up. Instead of returning Alien to it’s gritty, raw origins which is what everyone wanted, you turned it into an action, cgi, movie starring a gayish android named David.

    • a_v

      Which is one major reason Disney now owns it probably. After all, Disney only got Star Wars & Lucas Films after George Lucas decided what Star Wars REALLY needed was Jar Jar Binks.

      Only fair for Alien to get that “gayish android” as a Jar Jar Equivalent.

  • Will Coors

    Well this sucks. The last movie was such a disappointment but I still would want him to finish out the prequel stuff. All I know is that I’m not here for a pg-13 alien, absolutely not. I hope there’s some future for the franchise in rated R form cause this is very disappointing. The last film was messy but they could fix it and get it back on the right path.

    • Jeff

      I’ll continue pretending those piece of shit movies have nothing to do with the Alien franchise. According to Ridley the hack the xeno species was created by a psychotic AI 17 years before the original. No thanks.

  • Grimphantom
  • xcalibrate ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Fox won’t change much. R rated films will still be made. Disney may well get the Alien Franchise back on track. As it is, Scott hasn’t done much for the Alien Franchise since Alien. Looking good is no substitute for a compelling story featuring compelling characters.

  • Nick Blackford

    If it were up to me I’d have Disney fast-track production on Awakening under the Fox label, have Scott finish his trilogy and simultaneously develop an all new entry in the franchise post-Ripley.

  • DeathApeDisco

    If the most recent film had made money, Disney would fund the next one, I don’t really have any doubt.

  • sliceanddice

    “PG-13 and fun seem to be the right course to take this slowly dying franchise.” you guys are full of such horse shit. when the heck did i ever think I’d read a site called bloody disguting back such whimpy notionas as makign an alien movie PG-13. Moreover, you guys gave alien covenant (which i loved) a great review despite for being so full blooded the fact that it had done poor at the box office.

    • Manny

      Thank you. Seems they have SDS -scott derangement syndrome.

    • Chūjitsuna Heiho

      Brilliant answer, could not add anything to it, my thoughts as words exactly.

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      you are right but Covenant is just an ok movie, could and should have been way better

      • Jeff

        No it was a completely shit movie.

    • Necro

      Nice!

  • GunsOfNavarone

    I’m glad he’s out of options, his grotty ideas almost killed the entire franchise. Thank god he never got to see them through to completion in The David Chronicles.

  • EvilWhiteMale

    Aliens was the last good one. Do it right or leave it alone.

    • Kaijudude

      ^this

      • Tech2750

        both wrong, but I guess when you have a low IQ, all movies should be all action and no plot.

        • Jeff

          Only one with low IQ here is you.

        • Kaijudude

          And when you’re a trolling dick over the internet you can be all mouth with no muscle to back it up .

    • Chūjitsuna Heiho

      Superb. Agreed.

    • Z4NID

      Since people are now more open to the concept of a “reboot”, maybe they could reboot Alien 3 to be a direct sequel to Alien 2 and fix all the mistakes like killing off Newt and Hicks, and give all these characters arcs closure.

      They could explore Hicks and Ripley romance, Ripley and Newt mother-daughter relationship…. Maybe they can make Newt grow into a badass survival growing up across various movies while being taught by both Hicks and Ripley. Maybe Ripley could sacrifice herself to save Newt at some point, so she will carry Ripley’s torch of bad-assery.

      So many possibilities… and yet it’s sad to see what they chose to do with Alien 3…

  • Manny

    Talk about picking and throwing out facts to hate on Scott. Disney is negotiating with Scott on doing a film involving Merlin, and seeing how Alien is under mouse’s wing, you don’t think Disney is already already negotiating on what to with the franchise. If they didn’t care, why even bring him in the first place since he’s well known for doing gritty films no mamby pambi fare that we usually see from Disney. Stop fantasizing about Blomkamp coming back. He even said, he’s moved on.

  • Terry

    arrrgg I am sooo wanting more sci fi horror movies and they have pretty much dried up, So disappointed.

  • Kaijudude

    Well , look at it this way , if they actually wanted to , they can start a division through Fox for anything potentially R rated . I think this is how Touchstone came about many moons ago .

    • johnhelvete

      Disney does not need to start a division through Fox to release R rated films, they could take the existing Fox brand and release R rated films under the Fox name, while the family friendly Fox franchises could be released as Disney titles.

    • obfuscate99

      The rumblings I had heard once the deal was confirmed as being in the works, were very much along this vein. They’d start up a new division, in the same manner as Touchstone (which was in itself a way of separating the traditional Disney fare from the slightly darker material), and have the PG-13 and potentially R rated material.

      Given the commercial and critical success of films like Deadpool and Logan, I can’t see Disney pulling the plug…they like money after all.

      • TheWalkingLost

        It isn’t like Disney is against releasing PG-13 films; everything isn’t G-rated. Most notably the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is rated PG-13. It’s for the whole family, but it isn’t exactly geared towards children. When Avatar 2 comes out I imagine it’ll be a Walt Disney Pictures production considering they have Pandora: The World of Avatar at Disney World. Avatar wasn’t filled with explicit sex and Tarantino-style language, but it’s pretty intense. There are a fair amount of Fox products that can be released with the Disney castle at the beginning, but still have a PG-13 rating.

    • whitemike

      That’s exactly why Touchstone was started, it was so disney could release stuff that was more adult and not have it directly connected with the disney brand.

      • Jeff

        Disney owns Miramax too and they released Pulp Fiction

  • Aaron Boone

    Why are you so certain Disney will try to sanitise Fox’s output? They just own the studio, they don’t want to sell fucking stuffed face-huggers in the Disney store. They own Marvel too, and if The Punisher was anything to go by, they have no real aversion to violence or bleak, horrible themes, so I doubt they would try and shackle Blomkamp with a PG13 rating.

    • Chūjitsuna Heiho

      because that’s Disney modus operandi as per Star Wars and everything they touch with their avowed SJW mittens.

      • American_Ignorant

        It’s cute when folks with white privilege get butt hurt when it’s pointed out to them.

        Absolutely adorable.

        • Chūjitsuna Heiho

          I’m not white and not American. I simply hate communists.

          • Skiptomylou

            Please tell us what mud hut country you live in, so we can bomb the fuck out of you for being a sniveling dick. STFU!

          • Chūjitsuna Heiho

            Typical fggot response. Fight like a man face to face. Oh no- you’re Murrican, you die like squealing little stuck pigs on punji spikes without air power. (sad face).

        • Z4NID

          The notion of “white provilege” itself is insane. Economic privilege relates to a class, never a race. If you go to anywhere in Africa the majority of the privileged class will be black, because that’s the ethnicity of the majority of these nations.

          Likewise, if you go to, say, Western Europe, they will be white, because they are majority. Go to the Middle East, and muslims will be the majority of the privileged class, because they are majority. And so on…

          America is a mixed bag in that regard, you can have both whites and blacks in the privileged class.

          • Aaron Boone

            It’s not insane, at all, actually. The concept of white privilege certainly intersects with social class, but they’re not the same thing. The most striking example of white privilege I can think of, in America at least, is the fact that a black man can be shot and killed while reaching for the license for the gun he legally owned, but white, right wing militia members can point military-grade weapons at cops and feds and nothing happens to them. There’s an element of politics in there too as well, I suppose, as I doubt any of the various commie militias that have cropped up recently would get away with that shit.

            But I digress. Yes, liberals focus on privilege way more than they should, with the idiot above bringing it up despite race not even being mentioned serving as a prime example, but that doesn’t mean it’s not there.

          • Z4NID

            That’s a different situation altogether. General security forces, taking here the only example you gave – the police force – is, as everything else with the government, acting based on numbers. When most violent crimes happens in black communities, the police force will adjust to respond acoordingly – that being most of the time responding with deadly force against blacks. The same with, say, muslims in immigration, since they are the ones causing the majority of the terror attacks. There is no other way around it. It’s not about race or ethinicity, it’s about the numbers.

          • Aaron Boone

            Alright, I was trying to have a rational conversation, but you’re clearly a fucking cretin.

          • American_Ignorant

            No it’s not. The evidence is everywhere.

            My guess is you’re white. It’s usually self evident in statements like what you just made.

        • Skiptomylou

          And it’s a total piss off to read shit about privilege this and privilege that on a thread about alien movies.

      • Aaron Boone

        The point was regarding violence in films, so Star Wars, a kids film, is irrelevant. As are ‘sjw mittens’, whatever the actual fuck they’re meant to be. Read before commenting.

            See, just Indonesia, America has done some pretty fucked up things over the years, but only a complete garbage human being would be proud of them. Just saying.

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      lol what? have you seen the comedies disney made under the “Marvel” brand?

      • Jeff

        Would you please keep your fucking mouth shut you idiotic troll.

      • Aaron Boone

        You not liking Marvel’s output has quite literally nothing to do with Disney’s tendancy or, as has been established, lack thereof, to water down violence in films. Read before commenting.

      • Charles Lupula

        It must be hard to be as stupid as you are. Did someone type this for you while someone else wiped the drool from your mouth and changed your diaper?

    • Z4NID

      And rich. Don’t forget rich.

      • Chūjitsuna Heiho

        Oh, of course, I took it for granted it would be an obvious assumption by audience members- better throw on a top hat and a monocle.

    • Skiptomylou

      And don’t forget you’re an idiot.

      • Chūjitsuna Heiho

        Kosher approved.

  • John Svensson

    PG-13? Fun as comedy?
    That would be so grossly insulting and showing such vile contempt for the fans of the franchise would be a very bad idea.

  • Nahuel Benvenuto

    disney ruins everything

    • Jeff

      You are such an idiot.

  • Jeff

    It’s better to be gone if that hack Ridley has anything to do with it.

    • Kevin Edward

      Thank god… finally someone else that understands.

    • Skiptomylou

      While I don’t like the direction of Covenant, you can never say Scott is in any way a hack.

      • Kevin Edward

        Just because he made some good films in the past doesnt entitle him to a free pass when he fucks something up and produces a pile of garbage. The man created an Alien movie as if he didn’t have a clue about the films time line or its lore. It was a shambles, and for covenant as far as I’m concerned he was a hack. This is why you can’t just rely on someone to do a good job just because the did a good job in the past. The man needs to never touch the alien franchise ever again. The only saving grace is that it was mildly and I mean by a grain of salt amount, better than alien resurrection.

        • Skiptomylou

          I appreciate your points, but consider this before you bury the man: fan pressure on the film development company. We all heard about all the early fanboy outcry over story details for Covenant. As I heard, Scott faced a lot of pushback from the parent company over appeasing them, so the script was rewritten. I disliked several things about it, especially focusing on David. They essentially abandoned the film Prometheus set up, which was horrible, because I was excited for two years while they made it. And Shaw was already dead, so we got some half ass new direction that was in no way as intriguing as what we were promised. So, I guess we agree on some things, we just don’t agree on who’s at fault.

        • Pepe

          He made good films in the PAST? lmao his movies are still CURRENTLY getting Oscar noms for Best Picture you dumbass.

          • Anthony DeRouen

            More trolling from the Trolltard.

        • Rob Taylor

          Actually, it does… Remember which seminal movies he has ACTUALLY made… Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Thelma & Louise, Black Hawk Down and to a lesser extent Black Rain… That absolutely means he can make any movie he wants… same bracket as Scorcese or Spielberg.

  • Kevin Edward

    Disney would pull the plug on it because Covenant was garbage not because they are a family friendly company, You think Disney would loose out on a guaranteed mass money maker if he had a quality film to make? Awakening was going to suck like covenant did and Fox knew this, Ridley is just looking for someone to blame for his own failings. The man doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing with the Alien franchise and wherever it goes next I hope he has nothing to do with it. Id rather no film gets made ever again than see whatever trash Alien awakening was going to be.

    • Pepe

      Prometheus and Covenant made almost $700 million you moron. So your garbage hissy fit of “…you think Disney would loose out… blah blah blah” doesn’t hold water.

      • Anthony DeRouen

        And you’re just trolling people, Pepe. Walk away.

  • JB

    Just let Ridley do his last garbage Alien movie. Even tho Prometheus and Covenant weren’t great I still kind of want to see how he finishes it.
    Then let Blomkamp do Alien 5, and if it’s successful go on from there.

  • Dan Warren (Forgottenretroworl

    I say we nuke the entire franchise from orbit.

  • Mateusz Kowalczyk

    We need Covenant 2 <3 <3 Prometheus and Covenant are AMAZING …..I love both movies…history is not finish yet and i want to see again Daniels 🙂

  • Tone Lacy

    Please Disney pull the plug,so these ungrateful complaining fans will have more to be disgruntled with. There never gonna be satisfied with anything anyway. They complained about Prometheus then complained about covenant. NOTHING IS EVER GOING TO PLEASE THEM. So tell them to EFF OFF

    • I Am Colossus

      Covenant sucked, fans just wanted a scary ass movie with atmosphere and tension…. We got backstory to a fucking prequel and flute tutorials

      • Anthony DeRouen

        hahahaha True.

    • ElGigante

      Yes, how dare fans of a franchise want a good film. The monsters.

      • Pepe

        You bitches complained about the direction of Prometheus so Scott went in the other direction with Covenant and you bitches still complained. You deserve nothing.

      • Rob Taylor

        Franchise? They did 2 good films over 30 years ago… everything else was dogsh** thus not a franchise… it was that thinking that made it crap.

  • Jay Rizzi

    covenant stunk

  • I Am Colossus

    Yea PG-13 is why movies are soooo successful not bad story telling and weak direction…tell that to Deadpool and Logan, oh hey those were FOX movies too….seems like maybe he’s hiding behind is eclectic scenes of flute tutorials

  • Skiptomylou

    This fixation with David has been the ‘falling from grace’ part for me.

  • ronnie chowder

    can we just confirm uncertainty in Scott at this point? he’s going the Romero route and spitting on his earlier work.

  • OneFootFriendly

    Dude, they just kept getting worse.

    And I dont know if Ridley just doesn’t know what he’s doing anymore, I suspect that he doesn’t since he hasn’t really made any good movies since bladerunner, his first 3 movies were his high water mark. But these last two movies are VERY OBVIOUSLY designed by producer committee with ridley just being a name brand shlub for hire doing what they tell him to do. A committee of producers who will continue to over meddle in a property that is viewed as a franchise by their own insufferable and unwavering nature.

    Theres just no culture in hollywood that any kind of decent Alien sequel/prequel/remake/reimagining/versus/whatever can ever be made. Yeah there were some people who liked these prometheus movies, but they were never going to get any better then the last two.
    And never will.

    And whats the deal with continuing to suck the blood of Alien’s reputation anyway.
    Just by the nature of that concept you’re going to get lower and lower denominator clumsy knockoffs and returns.

    Make something else new.
    Heres my idea, lets see some diversity at the executive level in hollywood
    Some diversity about what gets greenlit.
    Maybe that would create some diversity in content.

    • OneFootFriendly

      “…Scott’s plans to turn Alien into the next Star Wars.”

      Eugh…
      I’ll assume that you’re referring to the expanded universes, not the original classics.
      Not the same thing at all. Turn the alienS franchise into the same hollywood culture war propaganda as the star wars franchise? What an insidious plan.

      As far as I can tell they did all the right things.
      All the same awful things they did with star wars.
      prometheus had all the same scumbags writing it and shoehorning their agendas into it as the MCU and the star wars movies, to push it on children.

      But maybe the audience for comicbooks and star wars was never really the same one that Alien had. Star wars wasn’t a stupid movie, but it was a comic book fantasy. Alien had comicbook roots through O’Bannon, but from the EC kinds of comics not Flash Gordon serials.

      Maybe what those hollywood scumbags got wrong was trying to use the same methods and hacks that they’ve used to make low denominator superhero movies and star wars knockoffs to try and imitate the appeal that Alien had through thoughtful and artistic dialogue, plotting and suspense.

      lindelof and michael green ISN’T thoughtful.
      Thats a comicbook low denominator imitation of thinking deeply only suitable for ignorant children and mushbrained stoners.

      Maybe what the bloodsuckers should have done is stick to that stupid james cameron/alienS formula, and just add more guns and explosions to go with their liberal stereotypes.

    • Pepe

      Yeah he sure doesn’t know what he’s doing anymore that’s why every other movie he puts out gets an Oscar nom for Best Picture. lmao. Dumbass.

    • Rob Taylor

      It’s very simple… his brother died, his brother has kids… he makes the movies to make sure they are financially OK… it’s a very British thing to do…

    • shpinkis

      …there are multiple M.L. tho: 2

  • Raul Calvo

    “As John Squires and I have expressed on several occasions, we’re hoping that Disney shifts gears and goes back to Neill Blomkamp‘s plans for an Alien 5 with Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn returning to their Aliens role. PG-13 and fun seem to be the right course to take this slowly dying franchise.”

    I hope this never ever happens. It would truly be the ending of the franchise, going out with a whimp and not a bang.

  • Charles Lupula

    If you think Alien should be PG-13, then you should never be allowed to watch movies ever again.

    That said, the Alien franchise should just die. It is over. Blomkamp’s idea was awful. Ridley Scott’s idea to focus the franchise on AI is awful. There are obviously no more ideas for it, so let it die. That and Terminator. Just let them end.

  • abyx34

    You can’t farm eggs from the same chicken for decades, you just can’t. At some point the chicken dies.

  • Jesse Schultz

    You guys just don’t get it…there are only TWO reason why Disney bought 20th Century Fox. One is for the original Star Wars film, which Fox still owned, and the second is for the X-Men characters and universe, which (X-Men films) have grossed over 2 Billion. They could care less about any other “franchise” that Fox has, and that just leaves Predator and Alien…that baggage just came with the deal. That’s it. No more than that.

    • Paul Littlefield

      Agreed, nice one.

  • Leo

    Disney a family-orientedBWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    Oh boy.

    Disney is a money-printing leviathan. They couldn’t give a damn if they’re going to have Darth Vader massacre innocent rebels or a homicide being the stage setter of an entire movie (already happened). They own enough IPs to basically do whatever the hell they want. As long as it’s not one of the core franchises specifically aimed at children, they won’t care as long as it earns them money.

    And if they pull the plug on Ridley’s failure of a plan and overinflated ego, so be it. God save us from another crappy Alien movie.

  • Daniel Anderson

    ” Would Disney, a family-friendly company, back such a violent, R-rated franchise?”

    They would not belittle themselves to stoop to that level. Can’t wait for deadpool 2.

  • Baron Von Marlon

    Disney should go all the way. They got the cash.
    Gimme the Covenant sequel. And after that more Prometheus type stuff.
    Give us (Blomkamp’s) Aliens 2 with marines, big guns, lots of violence and gore.

    And some creepy violent thrillers with aliens. Perhaps give Craig Zahler a chance.
    Give us everything, Disney!

    Disney is social justice trash

    • Garbageface

      Aren’t you the little snowflake that was whining about gay kissing inanother thread? Is this what you do? Just mindlessly rail against gay people and “social justice” online? Seriously, I can’t imagine how miserable and lonely your existence must be. Maybe try to pull yourself out of your hate hole and live a better life

    shame on you disney fans. give it up. you can still watch the old 1930s cartoons all you want but stop supporting what it has become. it is not what it was when you were a child when will you learn that it is a greedy money hungry company buying stuff out.

    PG-13 Aliens? Fuck off.

    What disney and alien”/prometheus whatever franchise needs to do is stop trying to smart it up, stupidly.

    These prometheus movies are trying to be stupid smart, like all these terrible “lost” TV shows, and isht them out through a stupid hollywood blockbuster formula. Dude you’re trying to make an apple into an orange and its not even a real apple but some kind of phoney plastic apple in the first place… The concept is all wrong from what you’re trying to pretend to do to the incompatible way that your trying to do it.

    All that phony ignorant-intellectual stuff ISN’T what franchises like star wars (post first two) or the avengers or pirates of the carribean are made out of. You probably get away with that better on TV becasue you can isht TV shows out every week for way cheaper and recover from missteps and change directions and dangle people along through a casual medium like television easier.

    If you where gonna make a smart movie, you’d have to make it smartly.
    Not through a boardroom of producers consensus.

    What they need to do is go stupid.
    The other direction.

    James cameron movies are not smart.
    jj abrams movies are not smart.
    transformer movies are not smart.
    They’re popular and successful becaseu they’re not trying to be smart,
    they’re stupid.

    Just stick to guns and explosions and throw the predator in there.
    Boom, franchise.

    Stop trying to imitate Alien, imitate alienS.

    I’d like to see the “conclusion” to the ALIEN prequels… where we see the actual Juggernaut crash on LV426 and see what happened to the Pilot and how the Eggs came to be. THAT would be good, and the… END… of… the… story loop.
