Neill Blomkamp Shares New Alien 5 Concept Art!

Director Neill Blomkamp has shared a brand new piece of concept art for Alien 5 on his Instagram account. This one shows Ripley and Corporal Hicks with his acid-burnt face, standing next to a man in heavy armour. Note the South Korean flag on his armour. You can also make out two strange figures standing behind them which harkens back to one of his other pieces of concept art showing Ripley next to a strange alien figure. Blomkamp says in the caption that the alien project is going well and he’s loving it.

#alien going very well. Love this project

This is the first piece of Alien 5 concept art we’ve seen since the initial batch was released back in January 2015. We can only speculate what the story will be and we know that it will be ignoring the events in Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection. We’re still in the dark as to whether or not Michael Biehn has agreed to reprise his role as Corporal Hicks.

    Who knows for sure if the cop was even Korean.  Just because he spoke a Korean phrase doesn't necessarily mean he's Korean - in Blade Runner, there is something called "city speak" which was a new language birthed from the culture mishmash melting pot of 2019 Los Angeles.  In the same scene posted, Gaff speaks sentences to Deckard that are composed of Hungarian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, French, and German words and phrases.

    Good point but we know at least he was Asian. The Sushi Master and Chew both speak clean Japanese and Chinese respectively, so it's not too far fetched to assume the cop only spoke Korean.

    Both also spoke English. Korean phrase could've been part of cityspeak.  Just because someone is Asian doesn't mean they can only speak one language.

    Originally he was planning a sequel to Alien 3 which would have precluded Ripley and Hick's inclusion.

    Quote
    My apprehension with Alien was that I had never worked with someone else’s material. And not even someone else – at this point it was like… I’m going to count Fincher in with the third one. They’re all three awesome filmmakers. So it’s not about living up to it and being nervous about it, I just don’t want other people to tell me what to do. Which is a different thing. ‘Well we think in this film this should happen because it happened in that one.’  That kind of scared me a little bit so then I was like ‘I’m just not going to do it, I’m just going to put it out.’ But then I spoke to Sigourney [Weaver]. And I love Sigourney and her wanting to execute the story  that I wrote, and she thinks it’s the right story for Ripley. So I was like ‘Nah, I’m fully going to do this.’

    So those going on about how he is just a Hix & N00t fanboi, it's not that clear-cut.
  3. Corporal Hicks
    Yeah, Ripley wasn't going to be in it at all until he worked with her on Chappie. Essentially it was Weaver who changed his mind regarding the inclusion of Ripley.

    Something like that, yeah. Everyone seems to be name-calling Blomkamp because Ripley and Hicks have featured so heavily in the concept art, but it's more likely that was a result of alterations resulting from Weaver discussions.

    Now thats an interesting factoid.

    Quote
    NEILL BLOMKAMP: It did have to do with having Sigourney on Chappie. It’s just something that I’ve always wanted to one day be a part of. Those first two [Alien] films are probably my favorite films ever made. I didn’t know if it would ever happen. I just always wanted to participate in it if I was able to.

    Over the years, I came up with a story for a film in that universe that I wanted to make. And then when I talked to her about her experience making those films and what she thought about Ripley and everything else, it informed and changed the film I wanted to make into something different.

    It just sort of stuck with me. A year later, when post-production was winding down on Chappie, I started fleshing out the idea for a film that would contain Sigourney. Fox never knew. I just worked on it when I could. Before I knew it, I had this really awesome film with a lot of artwork and a lot of backstory. And then I didn’t know whether I was going to make it or not. So I just kind of sat on it for a while.”

    HuDaFuK - I vaguely recall reading somewhere that blomkamp had made some story changes to his base-idea after talking with Ridley Scott. I'm just not sure if those story changes were minor or major...

    Blomkamp implied those were changes imposed by Ridley to stop any conflict with Prometheus 2, but he said they were fairly minor.
    That's pretty much what I had heard. But you never know; if Ridley had his own ideas for alien 5, he and/or weaver could have easily influenced blomkamp's story with suggestions. I don't think his story was (or is) set in stone yet, but I could be wrong about that too I guess...
  8. The Eighth Passenger
    Seem to recall something about the story being heavily influenced by Weaver when they talked together. Don't remember the exact quote, but it was around that time when the project took on full traction.

    Quote
    Hell, being Ridley is executive producing, I wouldn't be surprised for him getting story credit along with Cameron, Blomkamp and Weaver!

    Ridley has never written a screenplay before (discounting his student film). You probably don't want him near a script anymore than Blomkamp.

    I knew Ridley Scott was involved as a producer, but I had it in my head that his story suggestions were strictly to keep things in line with prometheus 2. I hadn't even considered the possibility of Ridley offering up suggestions from his own alien 5 treatment...

  11. LiquidMonster
    Yes, she did. But correct me if I'm wrong, I think xenomorphine is implying that this will be less like all of Neil blomkamp's previous work because sigorney weaver will have a say in what story elements should be emphasized (i.e., political, etc..). So it's sort of unfair to assume that this will be exactly like his other work when we know at least 1 other person involved will be heavily influencing both the story and direction (weaver).

    Well, that, but more importantly, don't forget she was repeatedly interviewed, over the years, as being involved in the informal talks between Cameron and Scott for their brain-storming sessions for an 'Alien 5'. It's unlikely Cameron will ever reveal what he had written, so far, for that, but Weaver strikes me as the kind of creative individual to have thought it a shame a lot of those ideas never made it to the screen. I could definitely see her speaking candidly with Blomkamp in private, about all the 'what ifs' which had been spoken about. Heck, if he's half the fan he says he is, I'd have expected him to ask about those!

    So, my feeling is that this will contain more than a few elements of what we could have had for the Cameron/Scott project. Blomkamp seems like the kind of imaginative soul to take some of those ideas, run with and modify them, based on what Weaver told him she would have liked to have been involved with, back then.

    When you mix this with Scott being a producer, it doesn't seem unlikely... The only thing missing is for news to be leaked about Cameron being 'consulted' about this.

    Simply ace Xeno! A very good response. I agree. You just *KNOW* that Blomkamp has asked about Ridley and Cameron's Alien sequel ideas. Hell, being Ridley is executive producing, I wouldn't be surprised for him getting story credit along with Cameron, Blomkamp and Weaver!

    Everybody seems to be forgetting Weaver clearly had a large amount of input on this, story element-wise.
    That's true but she had a lot of say in Alien 3 and Resurrection as well if I remember rightly

    Yes, she did.

    That actually makes sense yeah.
  15. HuDaFuK
    Nice art but still not sold on the film.

    I don't like the idea of giving the later films the boot and I'm still really worried that Blomkamp's gonna be writing it. Seriously, they better announce that someone's working with him on the script soon or else my expectations will drop quite a bit. Writing is not his strong suit.

    Dr. Matshuita in Alien 3 is Japanese (albeit played by Chinese actor Hi Ching (credited as company man 1))

    Interestingly, in  Blade Runner there is a Korean cop in heavy body armour who tells Deckard , "Hey, idi-wa", Korean for "Hey, come here".

    That's really interesting. I watched Blade Runner many years ago. So I forgot about the Korean cop. It makes me wonder what made Ridley Scott decide to have Koreans patrol his city. (I'm not against his decision since it's his movie and it's science fiction. And seeing a Korean in a controlling position like that in a British/American movie was very new and intriguing). Note that the Korean spoke in Korean to Deckard, not in English. It's as if the Koreans are in control of this city. Blade Runner is a 1982 film. This was long before South Korea became a wealthy and high tech country. In fact, South Korea used to have sweatshops in 1982. And the country was politically unstable, experiencing coups and oppression by the government. This was before South Korea hosted the Summer Olympics and the FIFA World Cup. I was a very young kid at that time, but I still remember that people didn't think much about Korea. I even know people who weren't even aware of that country.  It seems so out of the blue that he chose Korea as the superpower in his film.

    Or could it be that the Korean was acting as a mercenary for the Japanese? I remember a lot of Japanese cultural influence in the city.

    I highly highly doubt it Ridley's use of the Korean "idi-wa" was a prediction/statement regarding the rise of South Korea so much as another facet of his statement regarding the totally multicultural state of LA in his movie.




    It looks as though Neil Blomkamp is going to tackle yet another childish political cliche's that no one is going to take seriously.

    Or.. Samsung is advertising the movie but it seems unlikely.

    The presence of a Korean flag is your reasoning to assuming this will be another political cliche?  The Alien series has always dabbled in predictions on the future or merging of various countries, whether it's Ron Cobb's concept art for a "United Americas" flag and a "Three World Empire" patch or the increasing influence of Japanese corporations in the Yutani aspect of Yutani...or in the kanji that's adorns Fury 161 all over.

    Technically, it was Gearbox which kept hyping that. Fox seems to see endorsing something as canon as just a cheap way to make extra sales.

    Wasn't there meant to have been some kind of official endorsement of the recent novel trilogy as being canon? Something else I can't accept other than as a 'what if'.

    Yea, I suppose that is a better description of how fox and gearbox handled it...

    Yes, I remember hearing a lot about fox endorsing the recent novel trilogy as canon too, but that sort of stopped once A:CM was released... Or at least that's the way it seemed to me. I haven't read the books yet, but I've heard enough about them to say that I'd probably feel the same way as you about it. The first two books in the trilogy in particular just seem like too much of a stretch for me, but the third one sounds like the best conceptually out of the trilogy.

    The funny thing to me is, out of all the recent additions to the alien saga - games, books, etc... - the one which held the most promise and plausibility (in my opinion) never got the "canon" endorsement from fox! That would be alien: isolation. I understand why, I just think it's funny and ironic...

    Yea I believe that's the kind of thing they did with the 2 box sets I mentioned too.

    They included an exclusive comic from dark horse for the alien/predator/avp box set

    Then if I'm not mistaken, the Blu Ray box set for alien/prometheus included a brand new deleted scene that shows the ultimate fate of Burke.

    I'd have no doubt that at least one new never before seen special feature will find its way into this new, inevitable "all inclusive" alien/prometheus box set.

    PS. I'm surprised there wasn't some sort of box set that included A:CM, given how hard they pushed it as canon initially... Thank god they didn't!
  23. Mr. Clemens
    Ah, I did not know this. I'm not really into comic book movies, so this is my first experience with retconning.

    Sure would be a dick move, though: "hey, we retconned these two movies because the majority hates 'em, but you have to buy them again if you want this set!" (with exclusive Special Features, no doubt.)  :-\
  24. Xenomorphine
    Yeah, even menu stuff would depend on who they hired to do them.

    You can go and get sets of all the 'Superman' films, including 'Superman Returns' - which was a retcon. Different studio, sure, but the precedent is there.

    If this retcons anything, it won't stop them from selling the other films.
  25. Engineer
    I still maintain that Fox is gonna want to continue to sell blu-ray boxed sets with five films in there, not three.

    Could be wrong of course, but it seems crazy for them to throw away revenue that A3 and AR could still generate.
    I dunno man, I wouldn't put it past fox to throw them all into a box set anyway... They added prometheus to the box set even though it was supposed to be "same universe" rather than same story arc; and even further back (and even worse, imo), they threw predator 1, predator 2, avp, avp:r, and the alien quadrilogy into a box set. I'd fully expect fox to throw in the original alien quadrilogy, alien 5, prometheus, and prometheus 2 into a new box set, and maybe if we're lucky we'll get a Blu Ray menu animation that fills in any continuity errors/gaps...  (The menu thing is a joke, lol).

    In District 9 and Elysium Blomkamp had South African mercenaries. Same thing there, South Africa also used to have compulsory conscription for all white males. After it's transformation to democracy many white men found themselves without work. But one thing they all had in common was very good military training and that's how that country became infamous for it's mercenaries.
    Neill Blomkamp directed that part very well.

    It could very well be that the Korean is a mercenary in Blade Runner (they are essentially rent-a-cops after all) as well as in Blomkamp's concept art.
     
    South Korea (just like Israel) is basically a nation of warriors. There is compulsory military conscription for all men in South Korea. Young Korean men basically have a choice of either serving in the armed forces for two years or going to jail for two years.

    In District 9 and Elysium Blomkamp had South African mercenaries. Same thing there, South Africa also used to have compulsory conscription for all white males.

    Yes, you're quite right, it's mainly Japanese influences in the LA of 2019. During the early 80's Japan was doing very well, much like China today before the asset price bubble burst in the 90's. The joke was back then that Japan would one day own the entire USA.

    But there is also lots of Chinese and Korean influences in Blade Runner if you look carefully.

    This city owned utility tanker from Blade Runner for example has "Riddles" written on it in Korean. Presumably as nod to the director.

    Im done with this shit, Blomhack just ignoring Alien 3, my favorite Alien movie, in favor of fan-fiction, seems like he's not smart enough to figure out a better story than just wipe out the last 2 movies, f**k that shit

    i agree, this isn't the Star Wars legends EU where you can shove your fingers in your ears and just say "nope, not canon", either reboot the whole series or dont bother starting the bulldozer; this clown says "he has no ego" yet he seems to have more ego than Randy Pitchford (you better believe i went there) thinking he has the right to disregard two films in a series to please fanboys. yes, his concept art looks cool but it takes more than pretty concept art to reinvigorate a franchise thats been effectively dormant for almost 20 years(unless you count the avp films and "that ancient aliens movie with the albinos in elephant man spacesuits that resemble that fossil from the first film)

    Alien Resurrection is the first Alien film I saw.  I love that movie.  Its not as good as the others but still very good. I feel the same about Alien 3. Both are hugely underrated and to disregard them is to do a disservice to the series.

    The background characters are definitely human. Although I really want to see what Arcturians are like. C'mon, FOX! No more teasing!

    Also, I warmed up to Alien 3 and dislike Resurrection  (that's pretty much the common mindset, although Alien 3 is sharply divided). Either way, it's looking like Blompkamp is going with alternative universe, which I can dig. As long as he hires the right writers to go with his excellent visuals, the movie will succeed. I don't think anyone will expect it to be better tgan Alien or Aliens. They just want a movie that they feel does "justice" to the series. "Good enough" is better than shite (Resurrection, AVP, AVP-R) that we've had to deal with for years.

    The background characters are definitely human. Although I really want to see what Arcturians are like. C'mon, FOX! No more teasing!

    Also, I warmed up to Alien 3 and dislike Resurrection  (that's pretty much the common mindset, although Alien 3 is sharply divided). Either way, it's looking like Blompkamp is going with alternative universe, which I can dig. As long as he hires the right writers to go with his excellent visuals, the movie will succeed. I don't think anyone will expect it to be better than Alien or Aliens. They just want a movie that they feel does "justice" to the series. "Good enough" is better than shite (Resurrection, AVP, AVP-R) that we've had to deal with for years.

    ....... i believe that there were/are korean personel in weyland yutani but particuarly in Alien 3 you notice it in the personel arriving at the end of the movie.......

    ....... i like Alien 3, i dont love it but i like it. When i got the Alien Quadrology DVD set  and i saw the "assembly cut" of Alien 3 my opinion on it changed dramactically.......

    That's about the same time my opinion of alien 3 changed too! :-)
