Blomkamp Shares ADI Alien Sculpt for Alien 5!

Earlier this week Neill Blomkamp shared a new image on his Instagram account of an Alien sculpt from Amalgamated Dynamics Inc, saying how much he enjoyed working on Alien 5. ADI’s Alec Gillis has since regrammed the image with some added context and credits!

Repost from @neillblomkamp who allowed us to play in his ALIEN5 universe. Happy he’s letting you all see some of the design work we did. There’s no doubt in my mind you would have loved what Neill had planned.

Project supervisor @h2.originals. This sculpt is by @monsterman03gmail along with @monstermania2017 and @ayumi.fx . Molds by @jon_k_miller with tech work by @saratheterra and Brian Clawson. @paulkomoda had a hand in other design/sculpt on A5 too.

 Blomkamp Shares ADI Alien Sculpt for Alien 5!

The sculpt shows a lot of influence from H.R Giger’s first Alien but with a noticeable second set of arms, much like the Alien Queen. While we don’t know much of what Blomkamp’s Alien 5 would have looked like, we know it went under the codename of Red Harvest.

Frequent Alien series concept artist Carlos Huante previously shared – and then took down – some concept art he did for the project which showed a lot of mutated Aliens, many of which also had two sets of arms.

    To be honest,  I could live with  a movie  that incorporated a little of both,  with enough  room for at least  one,  intelligent and  well-armed reptilian warrior on the hunt.


    Ugh,  this was in response to someone  who asked if the real fans wanted armored power loaders or crazy androids.

    No one should actually want to know/see the backstory of the f**king Alien/Space Jockey.  Because then it takes away the mystery and turns it into just another stupid cheesy movie monster, something the Alien was always above imo.  Aside from all the sexual metaphors, the Alien is also just supposed to represent the unknowable cosmic horrors that could await humanity in the black uncharted vastness of space.  Giving it a backstory (especially one as stupid and bad as the one given) just defeats the whole purpose.

    I must say I agree with this sentiment.  Regardless how one feels about the  prequels, Alien lost much of its potency when Ridley started trying to explain its origin. For Alien to be completely effective, it needed to retain its mystery. (The same can be said about  H.R. Giger's art.) That's when Alien was at its terrifyingly best, something it has now lost with the existence of the prequels, in my humble opinion.

    I think Alien 5 would have turned out to be a pale imitation of Aliens at the very best. It has way too much to live up to, in peoples minds and to the legacy of Aliens - there's no way in hell Blomkamp's Alien 5 would not disappoint everyone on some level. People are sore now because it's not being made, but I guarantee even if it was made, these people would still complain because it's not in line with their own ideals. Plus, Fox would probably view it as a HUGE cash cow for them especially considering its links with Cameron's film, which only means a lot of studio nonsense.

    At least the prequels tried to appeal while bringing something different to the table.

    We may never know if Blomkamp's film would've been good or not, but it surely would've been better than what we got with the "prequels".

    'We'll never know if Blomkamp's film was good except we do know.'

     :laugh:

    Yeah, righto.

    We may never know if Blomkamp's film would've been good or not, but it surely would've been better than what we got with the "prequels".  Prometheus/Covenant are bad not just because of the plot holes, ruining of the lore, bland characters, unrealistic character actions, etc, but simply because the very IDEA of a prequel to the first Alien film is a bad idea.  Alien should've never had a prequel.  Not everything is supposed to have a deep mythology/backstory/cinematic-universe, and in fact, Alien was designed not to.  The first Alien was a small/self-contained story, and Prometheus tried to be this grand epic philosophical movie answering the question of the meaning of life etc, something that was never a theme in the Alien movies, all while being ASHAMED to be an Alien prequel.  Ridley clearly wanted to make a non-Alien movie with Prometheus but I guess figured tacking it on to Alien would sell more tickets or something.  I genuinely wonder how many "casual" viewers saw Prometheus in theaters and didn't even know it was supposed to be a quasi-prequel.  The alien popping out of the stupid blue guy's chest at the end probably just confused them lol.   

    No one should actually want to know/see the backstory of the f**king Alien/Space Jockey.  Because then it takes away the mystery and turns it into just another stupid cheesy movie monster, something the Alien was always above imo.  Aside from all the sexual metaphors, the Alien is also just supposed to represent the unknowable cosmic horrors that could await humanity in the black uncharted vastness of space.  Giving it a backstory (especially one as stupid and bad as the one given) just defeats the whole purpose.  At least the AvP movies were self aware enough to kind of know that they were corny disposable non-canon popcorn flicks.  But the "prequels" want to be taken super seriously and god its just so so bad smh. 

    I want an Alien movie that isn't a spin-off or prequel ffs.  There's a literal 200 year gap between Alien 3 and Resurrection, do something there.  Or just stop making them at this point.  We've suffered enough. 
  6. SM
    Not really.  People often don't like repeating themselves or others.

    Even Giger didn't like the dorsal tubes and sought to improve the design by removing them on Alien 3. Plus the Wolverine claws and Michelle Pfeiffer lips.

    Get rid of the extra pair of arms and it's literally perfect.

    These arent even films anymore. They are cash grab summer movies.

    Welcome to Hollywood. Yeah, it's bad. But what can you do? I'd say to vote with your wallet, but we're stuck smack dab in the digital spectacle/one-liners age of film, and unfortunately, it's what alot of people want and like right now.

    All we can do is wait it out, and hope this style gets so old and boring that the industry is forced to change before we're all old and decrepit. But with each new marvel character bringing in big dollars, and the Chinese market on the rise, this could go on forever. Best buckle up.

    Well fan is short for fanatic but in fairness, some of us are more rational and objective than others. You have some of us that can objectively criticise a movie, book and game, even if it has our favorite monster in it and you get some that will absolutely love the worst movie/book/game ever just because it has their favorite monster in it.

    Worst movie/book/game defined by whom? See this is where the blade shows its sharpness on both sides, the "fanboy" who likes everything and the "pretentious fan" that expresses condemnation towards fans who like certain output.

    I enjoyed "The Predator". I am rational, well spoken, realize there are many faults with the film's execution (especially narratively) yet still found enjoyment with the film.  For those feelings, I have been mocked for my opinion in this very forum, on more than one occasion.  I have no qualms with people disliking the film, or expressing their dislike, but we all should welcome a fan environment that allows all of us to express our views without condemnation.

    And one general note regarding "AvP Requiem".  While the film sits with a lowly 11% positive critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes, that does mean 11% of critics enjoyed the film enough to give it a fresh rating and a recommendation... and among those recommendations were Variety and Entertainment Weekly.  So if someone here likes that movie, more power to them.

    Having the minority opinion doesn't make someone's opinion wrong, it just simply means you're in the minority.

    Hahahahahahaha no just stop. They are awful movies with nothing redeemable about them.  The problem with what you are saying is if we ever have a chance of getting a good movie out of these IPs again, people need to stop giving caveats and saying crap like, "its better than not getting another movie".

    I'd deleted your first attempt at posting this for a reason. Granted, this one is less insulting but it's still wrong. People are entitled to their opinions, even if they differ to yours.

    Im not wrong. I maybe abrasive at times and extremely opinionated, but the truth is if even 10% of people like these crappy movies they been pumping down the pipes using the Predator IP, then the studios will continue to make them. But i guess there's no account for taste huh? I dont think its wrong to expect more than some watered down, marvel influenced, shoulda been direct to dvd predator movie. The ground work was laid with the first two movies for them to make something that doesn't need to jump the shark. Special needs kids reading alien languages using their ailment as super power? Seriously? Thats a big part of the plot and people eat it up? Its offensive stupid lazy writing. Thats just one of a movie which is nothing but a grab bag of crap like it. Next thing on the list to be in the movies im sure is to bring in big titted predators because people cant seem to drop what was a deviant art flap-drawing and move on. These arent even films anymore. They are cash grab summer movies.

    Spoiler Alert Bro!

    Am I allowed to like both Aliens and AVP:R? I do. Honestly I think every movie in the franchise has something to offer.

    Alien - masterpiece
    Aliens - masterpiece
    Alien 3 - amazing atmosphere
    Alien: Resurrection - amazing art direction
    Prometheus - introduction to new and interesting lore
    Alien: Covenant - best story in the series imo
    AVP - good pacing, nice sets, best predator mask ( celtic )
    AVP:R - awesome predator, grotesque death scenes
    Predator - masterpiece
    Predator 2 - brutal sequel
    Predators - interesting new lore
    The Predator - funniest movie in the franchise by far

    I guess I'm a fanboy. I like all the movies from both franchises for a variety of different reasons. I admit the quality of a couple of them are iffy ( AVP:R and The Predator ), but there is something good about all of these movies imo. I wouldn't be opposed to rebooting the AVP series entirely though. I'm kind of hoping The Predator is ignored going forward too. It was just too ridiculous for my taste lore wise, but I can see why people could like each movie.

    I do like your glass is half full approach.

    Are the "real fans" the ones who want heavily armed powerloaders and splosions? or just more Ridley robots and philosophy? I can't remember anymore.  ;)

    I'm just waiting for the memes where xenos are pointing fingers at either Ridley or Cameron and screaming, "You're not my real dad!".

    So people need to stop voicing their opinion on some piece of make believe, because someone condescendingly tells them to "just stop".

    Yeah good luck with that.

    Could the BLOMKAMP/ RIPLEY storyline be ressurected as a Television series? Would that work? I dunno.

    I don't think so; I really do believe that NB was channelling Dr Sam Becket off of Quantum Leap and was just setting right what once went wrong. I think his AL II ENS would have been a one-shot, torch-passing and setting the ghost of Rippers and Hicks to rest in a satisfying way (as most would have it, I don't want to get in to the whole "But 3 was perfect" thing again). I don't think after that movie, we'd see more of Rippers and Hicks - I think as has been said that Newt would have carried on the fight.

    Also - if there ARE further Alien movies in the offing, wouldn't Fox be worried about "confusing" fans (or underestimating their audiences as Corp Hicks said!).

    I reckon the proposed TV show WON'T have anything to do with anyone we know, but will heavily reference them and nod and wink for all its worth to ground people (that's my guess - I can't see them setting it post Resurrection, but you never know). I can only imagine this'd be in the "classic" era.

  18. The Old One
    One daughter is enough. :laugh:

    Even then Amanda Ripley's encounter and fight against the Alien had a motivation and correlation that made sense.
    Granted, it could've been anyone's descendant looking for their parent gone missing on the Nostromo.
    But it works really well because of the pretty seamless extension of Ellen Ripley's transmission.
    Retroactively I think it makes the arc of the first three films all the better.

    I don't really see what requires a retcon of A3 or what Rebecca Jorden offers that isn't doable with a new character.
  19. SiL
    Isolation effectively passes the baton from Ripley to, well, Ripley (Jnr), and apes a popular entry in the series, and people love Isolation (you amongst them! ;D)

    Baton-passing and nostalgia can be used very effectively. Not saying Blomkamp's would've necessarily, but conceptually, it's not an inherently untenable idea.
  20. The Old One
    If it's a passing of the torch to Rebecca Jorden and then it ends up being a series following her, it will have saved nothing. IMO

    I'd rather wait fifteen years for another completely new story than have the franchise become what Star Wars is now,
    which Alien will if it's successful in bringing back fan favourites- the series will become nothing but that,
    and aping the popular entries that came before.
    I'd genuinely rather have nothing than that.

    Anthologies FTW.
  21. CainsSon
    At this point, as much as I loathe the idea of retconning A3, I think Blomkamp's film - AND BRINGING BACK RIPLEY - may be the only hope of saving this franchise.

    Im thinking with the sure success of HALLOWEEN 2018, and the return of Sigourney's good friend Jamie Lee to her iconic role as Laurie Strode in that franchise - which is also retconing it's sequels to bring her back - that BLOMKAMP knows there's a shot of reinvigorating interest in his story, given the recent Disney/Fox merger, and his ROBOCOP appointment.

    That DISNEY/FOX merger will be finalized starting January 1st 2019... btw.

    Could the BLOMKAMP/ RIPLEY storyline be ressurected as a Television series? Would that work? I dunno.
