    I've heard rumors they're going to release everything in 4k, and that got me hyped for probably nothing. However, if they're going to release everything, or at least Alien, in 4k transfer.....I'll forgive Alien Covenant. If they don't, well I suppose I'll still forgive them about Alien Covenant, because I am a fool in an abusive relationship with this franchise. I'll be grumpy though.

    I'm not sure there's any substance to that rumour. I'm only really seeing it from fans going "wouldn't it be nice."

    Lol so true ... "because I am a fool in an abusive relationship with this franchise"

    Exactly how I feel about predator, constant disappointments and let downs yet they will always get my money,  man I'm a sucker!  😂 @NetworkATTH

    As a huge alien fan, AlienDay is a pretty big blessing.  Best part is the mechant discounts -- DarkHorse etc.  Last year i grabbed all the alien comics on the cheap -- really looking forward to this year.

    The Cartel is probably cancelled or delayed for now since Fox is adapting one of Don Winslow's other books for a release next year. Scott will only serve as a producer on that.

    Merlin Saga script is finished and ready to go. Scott's production designer (Arthur Max), his cinematographer (Dariusz Wolski) and his costume designer (Janty Yates) is already attached to the project so it's probably what Scott is working on right now - though there has been no official announcement yet.

    Doubt very much that there is any movement with regards to a Covenant sequel. There's just nothing on the radar.

    Not to mention its adaptation of Cartel, the Fox acquired the rights for $6M.
    The shooting was supposed to start in March but it seems to be pushing again ...

    Seriously, do you think Scott is going to make an uninspired umpteenth spy movie based on a forgotten comic ?! Maybe at production and still .. (But you're right, you never know in Hollywood!!) Merlin saga, why not ?! But no idea if the scenario is ready or not. We know that Scott often rewrites his scripts for months.

    The Battle of Britain would be a realistic project, a huge project. Scott would love to do it. But it may be added to Scott's long list of dead projects, such as Tripoli, King David, The Eternal War, Prisoners, Monopoly (lol) and so many.

    Finally, for me, the only thing that seems really concrete is finished this prequel franchise. Ok, the last episode didn't work commercially. But it would be stupid not to finish it. With a controlled budget, this remains possible.

    Ridley's been linked to a Battle of Britain film, a Merlin saga for Disney and might be adapting Greg Rucka's 'Queen & Country' - on top of another Alien flick.

    Yes, it would be the perfect timing, certainly from a fan's point of view, but I suspect we will need to wait until Discney acquires Fox, if in fact that happens...  But whether, it's a Covenant sequel, Blomkamp's film, or any other Alien film, 4 / 26 would be perfect...

    I have the feeling that something is slowly getting ready for Alien's 40th birthday. Ridley Scott is certainly working on the script for the sequel now, and I don't think he's doing anything else now, which is very surprising, it's a very busy man! I think that this sequel won't change the plans of Disney, it's better to finish the prequel before doing new things (or reboot or marvelisation..). What's more logical to let the creator of the first film finish his vision 40 years later.
  9. AVP-CAPCOM
    Only things I could think of would be Dennis Lowe's Alien Fan documentaries.

    Ah thank you so much for this.

    Yes Dennis Lowe's "ALIEN FANS- 2" in the link below.5th video down in the link.
    http://www.zen171398.zen.co.uk/

    Amazing documentary for all those who haven't seen it yet. "Gareth Elner" is the "ALIEN costume guy" whose voice sounds familiar like he's been on a podcast is the person who went to ALIEN-WAR.

  10. AVP-CAPCOM
    Not to derail the thread and sort of related. Asking in an active thread.

    What was that "ALIEN fan" documentary that came out after AVP-R but before PROMETHEUS that featured a guy who became a fan of ALIEN through "ALIEN WAR" (UK) and set about making his own XENOMORPH costume. He complained that ALIEN-Ressurection Xenos looked like cockroaches.
    Also featured a surreal painting artist and a computer graphics maker all inspired by ALIEN.

    In 30 more days it'll be a year ALIEN-COVENANT was released. Only this time it does feel like a long time has passed.

    Anybody know if they are doing screenings of any of the films for Alien Day?  I was always mad living In Wisconsin that they never had screenings by me but we just moved to L.A. last summer so I was hoping someplace out here would be showing Alien or Aliens. Haven’t seen either one in a theater and am dying to be able to!

    I think that one of the companies named in the press release is responsible for the cinema re-releases/events so it's a likelihood that is pretty reasonable.

    Any chance we will hear more on this new game that day?

    Unknown for sure but hopefully.
  12. Perfect-Organism
    Yep.  That's fair.  And in all honesty, it's probably for the best.  I don't want to get my hope up for something only to have them dashed again.  I expect that the folks at Marvel / Disney have a much more vast brain trust that will give the fans something memorable.

  16. Still Collating...
    With all the delays NECA has been having. Do you think they’ll really have anything to offer by the end of the month? Other than that, can’t wait to read Dust to Dust!

    I would be very surprised. I believe they might just announce a new figure, show a picture of a prototype. I hope I'm wrong and they have something planned!

    Yeah, wanna see Dust to Dust. I am mostly looking forward to something new and any surprise announcements. Wouldn't mind some news on Covenant 2...  :P 
  17. Shimmering Canopy
    Ditto Morose...all very exciting... but all I want is a decent Alien movie or game ;) Granted - we did get a great Alien game after the CM fiasco - so, all I want is a decent Alien movie or new AVP game:0)

    Or if not AVP, a Pred game. 5 chapters, not necessarily the same pred: A Cretacous level, couple of alien world levels (not necessarily with 'Aliens', but other beasts), a 'Nam level, a Ryushi-like space colony.

    Sorry guys, daydreamin' again, went a little going off topic there...

    I signed up for Eaglemoss.  I fell in love with their stuff after they started coming out with a figure for almost everything!  Fortunately they're 1:16 scale otherwise my entire office would be filled up. 

    Someone above mentioned a Covenant sequel.  I second that! 
  19. VegettoXTSY
    I love the fact that they do this every year now especially since it falls directly on my birthday.  Its like it was meant to be.  It's made it much easier for my wife and kids to find me awesome gifts the last couple of years.  I hope they keep this up every year and keep making new things and not just discounting the same old things that are already out there.  I like saving money but i want a push for new stuff with the alien franchise!
  20. FiorinaFury161
    Sounds good! This year, I plan to finally break a box of (2016) Upper Deck Alien Anthology cards! Really hoping for an awesome sketch card or autograph, or, if I picked a very good box, the dual auto of Charles Dance and Charles Dutton (still never even seen one for sale or pulled yet!).
  21. MattFiler
    Some more news on Cold Iron's project would be great - but I feel it's still too early to see anything. It was over two years between them announcing the Creative Assembly were working on an Alien game and them even announcing the title of Alien: Isolation.
