A week or so back in the forums we had some links to HMV’s Predators page but with small cover art on them. Play have just put up their updated Predators pages with some lovely large cover art:
While speaking to James Cameron about his Avatar re-release, Coming Soon.net snuck in some questions about the upcoming Blu-Ray release of Aliens:
The Blu-Ray is due out October 2010. Keep an eye on AvPGalaxy for some interesting Anthology related updates in the future. Thanks to DazAvP85.
AvPGalaxy is proud to offer all you fans in England the opportunity to see Alien and Aliens back in the cinema. It’s a perfect opportunity for those who weren’t around the first time round or for those of you who just wish to do it all again.
“The showings will be taking place at The Screen Room, an independent one screen cinema in Nottingham, England. We’ll be using the upcoming Blu-Ray release of the films for the showing. While the Screen Room has the classification as being the smallest cinema in the world, the screen is far from being tiny. Bigger than any home theater the screen is 115cm x 212cm. The event will be taking place on Saturday the 6th of November from 12.30 pm until 5pm. Now the seats are limited to 21 so book now to ensure you get a seat.”
Please check out the whole details. While we wont be charging for the tickets, we do ask for a donation of £5 to cover the costs of hiring the cinema out. We’ll also be offering AvPGalaxy t-shirts only normally available for subscribers at the event. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me.
The BBFC website has posted up a list of deleted scenes from Predators that will be featured on the upcoming DVD/Blu-Ray release:
No descriptions as of yet. Thanks to the optimistic pessimist for the link.
I recently had chance to have a chat with Brian Steele, the performer responsible for Mr Black and Falconer in the recent Predators film:
“It was different in scope because there was so much source material on the Predator. The character isn’t being developed from scratch. There is already an outline in place on what is expected from the performance. With other characters I have done the canvass is blank which allows me a different type of freedom on personality and movement.”
I’d like to thank Brian for taking the time to talk to us. Be sure to read the whole interview here.
Dennis Lowe just emailed to let us know he’s released his 4th documentary regarding people involved in the production of Alien:
Dennis also talks about his experiences for the first time, along with Nick Allder and Michael Seymour. If you visit Dennis’ website you’ll also find his other Alien documentaries.
Hollywood Deadline have just announced that Damon Lindelof, one of the Lost writers, has been brought onto do some work on Spaiht’s prequel script:
“In a development as vexing as a Lost plotline, studio insiders said that while Lindelof indeed met with Scott and the studio for that rewrite job, the exchange of ideas between them sparked a take that could well turn out to be a free-standing science fiction film. The studio will decide when Lindelof turns it in. Scott Free is producing and Lindelof’s CAA reps closed his deal last night.

In an interview with IGN FilmForce, Robert Rodriguez has ‘confirmed’ that they are looking at a sequel to Predators.
“[The studio] said, ‘Let’s do some other ones. What other story ideas do you have?’” says the filmmaker. “Because it was like, let’s test out the market with this one. They really wanted it to be pretty contained, pretty scaled-back. They didn’t want to put too many of the ideas into it that we could save for a second one. So we could see what the appetite was, because the bigger movie would actually be what comes following that. That kind of sets up a new storyline, new location and world, and then you can really go crazy from there.”
Rodriguez says he has “an idea” of what he will do with the sequel. The next step, he says, is probably to have other writers come in and pitch different versions of his basic premise, along with new concepts. And then, as with the first Predators, he’ll pick the best one. As for whether or not he would direct the sequel…
“I don’t know,” he laughs. “I think I have too many people wanting me to do Sin City 2 first!”
Thanks to Shasvre for the news.
20th Century Fox are currently promoting the Alien Anthology set in the San Diego Comic-Con. They’ve set up life-size pods, similar to the ones in the Nostromo in Alien, where people can get inside and watch a trailer for the set. You can see some pictures on DreadCentral and a video of the booth in action over on Fearnet.
There’s a new promo picture here showing what the discs are going to look like. Finally, there’s some close-up shots of the limited edition Alien Egg that can be found on HomeTheatreForum. Thanks to coolshow, Vulhala and Sabreman for the news.
There’s a new trailer for the Alien Anthology Blu-Ray set over on IGN. It’s about a minute long and is inter-cut with scenes from all four Alien films.
20th Century Fox have also launched the official website for the set: AlienAnthology.com. There’s nothing there right now but tomorrow, they will be adding an interactive desktop program. Thanks to Mikey for the news.
