Blomkamp Shares Newt Concept Art from Alien 5!

Blomkamp shares Newt concept art from Alien 5! Earlier this morning Neill Blomkamp posted a new piece of concept art for Alien 5 to his Instagram, this time giving us our first look at his adult Newt! This is the first piece of Alien 5 related content that Blomkamp has posted since announcing that the film was on hold whilst Alien: Covenant was being filmed.

Blomkamp Shares Newt Concept Art

The concept art looks remarkably like an adult Carrie Henn, suggesting that perhaps we won’t be seeing a recasting of the Newt character as assumed by most people. The majority of artwork released so far has focused around Ripley and Hicks and this is the first time we’re seeing something regarding Newt.

Back in November of 2015, Michael Biehn had apparently said that Newt would be recast with a younger actress but Biehn spoke out about that interview, saying he was misunderstood and that he was merely speculating on Alien 5.

Sigourney Weaver recently spoke about Alien 5, reaffirming that the intent was to produce Alien: Covenant first and then come back to Alien 5, stating that both Neill and herself were very excited about the project.

Thanks to Joel Foster (XENOMORPHOSIS) and Wade B Wyeth (aka Number 13) for the tip.

    I actually hope she is in the film.  By the time the film starts shooting, Carrie Henn could polish up on her acting.  It would be silly not to give the character a larger role, and I suspect Blomkamp sharing this images may imply that they're rethinking the extent of the character's role.  I would hope that they really think things through and put together something that can be a trilogy.  I mean I don't want a story spread thin like not enough butter on toast (Hobbit, ehem!), but if they have something good and epic that can come thogether over 3 films, I would be up for that..

    It never got reported on but according to Ross Poulter, one of the admins at WY-Bulletin, at London Film and Comic Con last year he spoke to Carrie Henn who said she would be in the film but only through something like a video link call.

    How did I miss this news? ::)

    After reading the comments, I agree that IF Carrie Henn is recast to her role as Rebecca Jorden, we know she has been battling Aliens of her own as a teacher :laugh: I'm ok with a recast, as long as she can still hold her own. Another actor taking her place is ok too. The costume design is, well, sketchy. ;D

    As for the comment on reconning the Star Wars prequels, I disagree. At first, I did not want to see them at all. Then one day, I seen Episode 2 on TV and watched it. Was very surprised. At least George Lucas had a major part in all three films... Sometimes I think Episode 3 is my favorite next to Episode 5 or 6. This is coming from a SW fan since 1997 at age 12.   

    Sorry for the run on, someone post a pic of Jar Jar Binks getting facehugged or something. :laugh:

    Indeed. Alien 3 very much achieved something. They destroyed the Aliens. At least, as far as the films were concerned until Resurrection.

    And even then you could argue it was only man's meddling that undid her actions, and not for another 200 years.

    This is exactly right. Ripley was successful at destroying the species, "for all intents and purposes she succeeded". That was one aspect of Resurrection that I actually liked; that it didn't devalue her sacrifice, her era had come and gone and the film essentially tried starting a new arch. Just a shame the film didn't turn out well.

    Indeed. Spot on. I'm not sure I liked a definitive end though - that's primarily just because I'm selfish and want lots of stories and comics and etc.

    I think nobody was the hero of Alien 3.  Nothing was really achieved.  The Aliens still resurfaced.

    That was the fault of the fourth film/EU stories, not a fault of Alien 3 itself. The third movie was meant to be a definitive ending.

    Indeed. Alien 3 very much achieved something. They destroyed the Aliens. At least, as far as the films were concerned until Resurrection.

    TAP, I understand what you mean and I'd agree they should really veer off into fresh territory. But at the same time, I can see the value of including a character we're already familiar with, who has prior knowledge of not just the creatures, but the events which we, as the audience, also are.

    I also quite like the fact that Hicks may be included (assuming he's not a hallucination, as per Scorpius in 'Farscape'). So long as he's portrayed like the competent military veteran he is, I think his knowledge and mentality could have been infinitely valuable during 'Alien 3'. If he's used that way, it'll be a refreshing change from the Ripley-wakes-up-all-alone-and-nobody-believes-her formula.

    So, yes, new territory would be great, but I can also see this is a potentially worthy stepping stone. Especially if an adult version of Rebecca Jordan has the torch passed along to her (even if it'd be more of a poisoned chalice, from the character's perspective).

    That's actually a really good point. One of the big problems with new stories with new characters is the characters having to relearn everything the audience already knows. It gets mildly tedious at some point and having them return would be a way to solve that. There are other ways, of course, but this one has the benefit of existing character history with the audience and a shared knowledge.
  7. LordCassusSnow
    I was just joshin about the unsung hero thing. Though it would make a good meme along with newts hide n seek champion of hadleys hope. Also, Hudafuk, i can agree on that.

    Lets not forget what weve gotten from Alien 3 though. The Queen Facehugger, the Queen Chestburster and the Alien being able to take on traits of its host to better survive its environment. Meaning if it wasnt for alien 3, we probably wouldn't have predaliens or Kenners Aliens line. Not to mention Neca's upcoming Kenner tribute line.
  8. Perfect-Organism
    Perfect O. Thats why he's my favorite! Morse: the unsung hero janitor of fiorina 161. Oh you think ripley was the hero in Alien 3? Guess again! Lol

    I think nobody was the hero of Alien 3.  Nothing was really achieved.  The Aliens still resurfaced.  Besides that, nothing was really resolved with the bigger picture issue of where they come from and how do we deal with them if we really need to.  That's why I am up for a retcon.  It would be more meaningful I think, if Ripley's character finds out about the meaning behind the Aliens and changes her mind and decides to help W-Y find more specimens.  That would be coming around full-circle, not dying.

    I always understood Ripley's value in "Aliens", like you said, she was the person who encountered them so her experience and knowledge was very helpful for the Colonial Marines. She chose to bravely go with them rather than stay behind. And her ending up combating the Aliens was more a coincidental outcome due to how events turned out. She never expected the Marines to disarm themselves hallway into the fight due to an atmospheric processor etc.

    And she was just unfortunate in Alien: 3, just how she was unlucky in Alien. All the non-Aliens movies are basically Ripley encountering them due to unforeseen circumstances with Aliens being the only one where she actually chose to come to them rather than otherwise.

    So this makes me wonder if Blomkamp's film is gonna be like that. Will Ripley encounter them by chance? Or will she be called upon for her experience?

    Hmm, I am beginning to understand your reasons.  But if this is the case then they totally didn't play the character correctly.  I mean I didn't even notice all the things he did.  He literally was the proverbial fly on the wall for the whole movie and then he kind of saved the day didn't he.  That makes no sense practically.
  12. The Alien Predator
    I didnt mean you i meant rankles. Sorry bro

    Sorry I'm confused here. He says you like Morse and there's no justification for that. I like Morse as well and there's plenty of justification for that.  :) Alien: 3 made me laugh so hard during my last re-watch of it for some reason. Just them saying "f**k!" cracks me up, it's the way they say it.

    I'm not having a go at anyone, we're all friends here just discussing our passions.
  13. The Alien Predator
    As for 'Terminator Genisys', what's that got to do with anything? I seem to recall a recent 'X-Men' film reset its own continuity, too - and that got some very positive reviews (and lots of commercial success). A film's quality has nothing to do with whether it has a plot device in common with an inferior product or not.

    My point for bringing Genysis is this:

    Terminator 1 and 2 had Arnold and did well

    Terminator 3, Salvation (to an extent) and Genysis also had Arnold and did not do well.

    Hell, let's use Alien as an example.

    Alien and Aliens = RIpley = great success.

    Alien: 3 and Resurrection = Ripley = I will spare you the details as you likely know the response.

    Just because you bring back a nostalgia classic character does not mean it's gonna be a masterpiece as the childhood classic that so many people love.

    Sure, the story could be great, the movie may turn out to be the best Alien movie ever made... we'll never know until we see. But don't forget that it has just as high of a chance to bomb hard like a Predator's wrist nuke. Ripley isn't the saving grace of this franchise. 3 and Resurrection have proven that. I'm one of the few people who loved those films but not many fans here share that opinion.

    I just don't understand... why can't they honestly just continue the story? It's a big universe with many characters to introduce and explore. Why is Alien limited to Ripley? It's one of this franchise's glaring flaws to be honest. For a sci fi that grounds itself in lots of realism, it sure suspends tons of belief by having one character encounter Aliens 238024830843 times in her lifetime. What was so great about Weaver's suggestion to Blomkamp to make him change his original script which was going to explore a new character?

    Haha you troll XD

    I'm not trolling you.  Honestly, you picked one of the most "fly on the wall" type of characters to be your favorite.  There's basically no justification for that other than to say that you just want to be different.  There is hardly anything memorable that Morse does on screen, other than to be the sole survivor of Alien 3.  Why?  What is it about this character that just does it for you?

    No offense but that is his opinion man. I like Morse too. He's memorable and funny to me. A lot of A: 3's characters were hilarious.

    No justification for liking Morse? I could tell you there's no justification for Alien 5...  other than for the sake of Blomkamp fanwanking.  :P
  14. LordCassusSnow
    Morse didn't do anything? Its was Morse that spoke up for Dillon and Rip and got the other prisoners to get off their asses and help kill the beast. It was Morse who suggested to Rip, after pouring hot lead on the beast, that she use the sprinkler system to kill the alien who was after her in a blind rage. It was Morse who deprived the company of their queen specimen after helping Ripley martyr herself. And it was because of Morse i laughed so hard in a movie that could have ultimately been joyless as hell. Especielly when Andrews gets grabbed lol

    Anyone else remember when Danny Webb's(Morse)name was on the IMDB page for the sequel to Prometheus? When i saw that i was over the moon! Its too bad it didn't happen. His making a deal with god to live forever n all. Anyway the brits in that movie were terrific actors! The cast was extremely memorable in my opinion. How could they not be especially after shouting each others names over and over at the end very loudly. Can you honestly say you didnt feel any emotion as Morse takes one last look at his home towards the end? Poor dude lost all his mates and you can tell he's feeling something about it. I for on am glad he survived. Guy was probably my favorite character in the whole series.

    C'est what?  Morse did hardly anything in the movie.  And then he got to survive.  His character meant nothing basically.  How can he possibly be your favorite?  Are you some kind of Hipster?

    I think it's irrelevant whether or not Henn is cast again. There are millions of actors out there, of all types of appearances. Many of them potentially great unknowns.

    What I do think is excellent, is that he's made a point of requesting the commissioned artist to base Rebecca's likeness adult off of the person who played her. To me, that's a wonderfully refreshing thing to aim for and shows dedication to authenticity of the spirit of this beloved series.

    Yes, the Dark Horse comics portrayed Rebecca as model-like in 'Book 2', but she looked different in 'Book 1' - and even more different in 'Earth War'. The character never had a consistent physical appearance. She went from a dowdy, depressed-looking brunette, to a sort of Piper Perabo likeness and then to... Whatever Sam Keith was drawing.

    It's kind of weird how alike DB's Rebecca portrayal looked like Perabo's then-future self, actually.

    http://wallpapersdsc.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/220.jpg

    But I like this new concept art. It shows Rebecca to look like a real person and that was something which 'Alien' was renowned for. Dallas, Lambert, Parker... They all looked and acted like real people we could relate to.

    Amanda Ripley? She's wearing practical clothing, but she's clearly 'sexed up'. Pretty to look at, but it always felt like shallow motivation on CA's part. I honestly never saw any resemblance to Sigourney Weaver in her (or, especially, Weaver's mother, who that photograph, from 'Aliens', was of), which is what they should have aimed for.

    As for 'Terminator Genisys', what's that got to do with anything? I seem to recall a recent 'X-Men' film reset its own continuity, too - and that got some very positive reviews (and lots of commercial success).

    Very well said Xenomorphine.  On all points.  It's all in execution and in the story.

    Not oscar worthy maybe but none of them were bad. I think Morse, 85, Andrews,  Dillon, Clemens, and especially Ripley were great. I also thought Postlethwaite's character and Golic were good for small otherwise throwaway parts

    If you can actually follow who is who (probably easier for Brits who recognise most of them from TV) there are actually some good performances in there. As you say, Aaron, Andrews, Dillon and Clemens were all really good. Ripley was superb. And even Morse was decent considering his character on paper was kinda one-note for most of the movie.

    Yes, we do need this.  We've had 3 attempts to bring in a new strong female lead for Alien films after Ripley and while some films were better than others, the female leads were meh.

    And you think the solution is to execute some silly retcon specifically so you can shoe-horn back in another strong female lead, even if it is one we've had before?

    Do something new. Cast a man or something.

    Firstly, it isn't silly, it's the natural conclusion. It's all in the execution.  I am agnostic about how the film will turn out.  It could be great, and it could be that all the Alien 3 fan boys were proven right.  It's all in execution. It's all in the strength of the story.  What I am saying is that it is the last chance to do this movie right with the original actors, including possibly Carrie Henn.

    Could some of this not be said for a story not involving retcons?

    Like a story set between A:3 and A:R with new characters? Or a story continuing Ripley 8's story? Or one set long after A:R?

    Have they not learned from Terminator Genysis? Dude, it has ARNOLD in it! How did it flop so bad that even sequels got cancelled? (Btw, I liked Genysis.) Just because a fan favourite re-appears in a franchise isn't the saving grace.

    Like you said, it's all in the execution. And if you ask me, Blomkamp is actually doing himself more harm by saying "hey guys, this is gonna be better than the last two films. In fact, it's gonna be the best, it's gonna be like the old two. It will have HIX AND NOOT!"

    Does he not realize that it raises expectations? When I see things like "Weaver says the script was so good" and other similar news, I just imagine fans are all like "aw, this is gonna be the best thing ever!" *sees film* "It SUCKED! 0/10 INTANT NON-CANON!"

    I think the guys behind The Predator may be doing themselves a similar harm by saying it will be an event film that will re-invent a franchise, which may be raising fan expectations rather than saying "hey guys, we're making a Predator film" they go "we're making this an event film, it will be talked about, it will reinvent the franchise..." I think they need to be careful. I couldn't care less for Blomkamp's film though, more excited for Covenant.

    Ridley is probably handling it the best, not raising too much hype while trolling us here and there. His method works as it keeps us discussing without raising hype to possibly dangerous levels.

  23. Beatnation
    Yeap the retcon work so well in the Terminator franchise right?, Beside that Alien 3 -Assembly Cut- it's a masterpiece and if Blomhack can't think in a way to move forward in the series instead just deleted 2 movies in favor of stupid cheap fan-fiction, then f**k him.

    Whilst I love Alien 3, it had far more problems than simply killing Hix and Noot! However it's gained quite a following, especially after the Assembly Cut. I think the real crux of it is going to be whether Covenant bombs and if Alien 3.2 is actually better than 3.

    Don't know the chances for her coming back but I'm for Carrie Henn too. She seems such a nice person in real life that if she manages to be as strong, determined on screen, as the concept art suggest, then that would be great :)

    She's an incredibly lovely person in real life. If she has the acting chops after all this time I have no problem with her returning. I'm not adverse to seeing the character recast if she doesn't though. I just want a good performance.

    Oh I can see what's happening here, all you ungrateful geezers want to have a hot sexy young actress play the role of Newt. Well I for one wouldn't mind the real deal Carrie Henn squeezing off a few thousand rounds from a M-41A pulse rifle into acidy xenomorph ass. You perverts should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Agreed lol!  That one sketch with Henn carries so much gravitas.  We need this.

    We dont need this. If you really have to, i can do with retconning resurrection, have WY find the derelict after ripleys suicide and we can get a whole new mythos with future alien/human conflicts and keep the familiar things present, but undoing a3 is the wrong thing to do. Let ripleys story end. Lets focus on someone new.

    Yes, we do need this.  We've had 3 attempts to bring in a new strong female lead for Alien films after Ripley and while some films were better than others, the female leads were meh.  The problem is that Ripley's death in Alien 3 accomplished nothing.  They still found a way to get the xenomorphs, and if the new Rage War series is treated as canon, then earth has more Aliens coming anyway, so where did the sacrifice take the story?  It's much better to have the original Ripley in the film, and to allow her to pass the torch to Newt.

    It's a film that can easily go the wrong way.  That is granted, but it is worth a try.  If not now, then the actors will get too old and pass away eventually, and we'll never know what a great Aliens film we could have had.  Give it a chance I say.

    Agree with LordCassusSnow.

    This right here -
    "People hate Alien 3 because their favorite characters died horrifically during the beginning. I love it for just that, the message. The message that the beast will always win and that there are no happy endings in this cold dark universe."

    Amen.
    Speak for yourself and your Lord, mate.

    I didnt like Alien 3 cos it was just a poor in every way.
    Even Fincher is flabbergasted that there are people out there who like it ;)

    That is certainly untrue, there are many things about Alien3 that are not poor. The soundtrack, acting, cinemtography, and alien design just to name a few.

    Yeah, great acting. A bunch of instantly forgettable characters running around, saying "f**k" a lot... :)

    Other than obviously Ripley, Dillon and Clemens were okay, but that's about it...

    I think they should continue the movies only if they get a competent person to write and direct. Having a different person is going to end up like Alien 3 and Resurrection with tone changing each film and directors putting their own input in what the series should be. Honestly if Blomkamp film is a success I really hope FOX doesn't go crazy with it. As we all know FOX is what ruined the franchise with their horrible practices. They became the Real Weyland-Yutani in a way.

    And for the love god please don't let Fox think of making another AVP film reboot or sequel. I know everyone here don't share the same opinion with me but AVP film is doomed to fail and just insult the franchise even more. Sorry guys but its the truth.

    Agree with LordCassusSnow.

    This right here -
    "People hate Alien 3 because their favorite characters died horrifically during the beginning. I love it for just that, the message. The message that the beast will always win and that there are no happy endings in this cold dark universe."

    Amen.
    Speak for yourself and your Lord, mate.

    I didnt like Alien 3 cos it was just a poor in every way.
    Even Fincher is flabbergasted that there are people out there who like it ;)

    That is certainly untrue, there are many things about Alien3 that are not poor. The soundtrack, acting, cinemtography, and alien design just to name a few.

    Guys, we're getting Alien films from both ends.  There could be a half dozen new films if things go as planned.  How is that not epic??  It's truly a day to celebrate.  I can't wait to see all the films get turned into reality!

    This is why I will ALWAYS love BOTH cuts of Alien 3. Infact, I still stand by that the Alien-Predator universe is a cold, dark and devoid universe.

    But in regards to this, I just hope Blomkamp doesn't render Alien 3 and Resurrection as dreams. The whole dream theory which the fandom created back twenty years ago is just... dumb.
