Updated: More Previously Unseen Concept Art For Blomkamp’s Alien 5!

Over the years we’ve seen a good deal of concept art from Neill Blomkamp’s aborted Alien 5 (codenamed Red Harvest), including some particularly memorable pieces from Geoffroy Thoorens. In the years since other artists have been sharing their own work on the project but the complete picture of what Alien 5 would have been remains shrouded in mystery. However, with each new image we get a look at the bigger picture.

Concept artist Geoffroy Thoorens has recently re-uploaded some work he did for Alien 5 to his ArtStation, which led me to discover some work he apparently uploaded 6 years ago that I haven’t seen shared around the fandom before!

    They're working on it.  ;)
    About that.. Any idea if Scott is still in talks to executive produce?  :P

    From what we know, no longer talks. But a done deal. Did check in again to be sure.

    He's updating that one page and it's still date labeling it as 6 years ago. Cheeky. Thanks  skhellter. Will post again!

    Some badass David's shenanigans in Ridley's sketches please. Hopefully his take on the Space Jockey set piece before Alien.  8)

    I was sad to learn this was not part of the official concept art

    Wow!  :o some VR glasses vibes there babe!  :laugh: They should make an animated 3D model to see how it works. ;D

    How many times have I seen these same conceptbro military team (add heavy with big ammo) in other media?

    Helmets overtly suggesting mimicking alien faces and fur in space are leaning a bit too much into CA tropes and I don't think it has place in Alien universe.

    However, a fully absurd Kenner Alien based, I would be a big fan of.

    Note ~ Although the fact that they are using elements from the prequels in the new EU seems to suggest that not everything is lost in this territory. The question is whether a final prequel from Ridley Scott is still possible.

    Yeah, prequel elements are everywhere at this point. They've basically become totally woven into the fabric of the identity of the Alien brand, and I am very much for that. The novels, the upcoming video game, and even that dream sequence in issue #1 of the current Marvel comic run – hopefully Hawley's series doesn't shy away, especially with Scott involved (?).

    They're working on it.  ;)

    Took the words right out of my mouth. :D

    It's a tricky question indeed!  :laugh:

    ...Alien 5 is heading to a not-so-popular part of the continuity, probably after Resurrection.

    ...The Covenant sequel is heading toward a not-so-popular but interesting part of the continuity.

    Note ~ Although the fact that they are using elements from the prequels in the new EU seems to suggest that not everything is lost in this territory. The question is whether a final prequel from Ridley Scott is still possible.

    ...A movie that is directly connected to the next TV series sounds likely. Although we are still not clear in which part of the continuity takes place.
  6. Evanus
    Yep, that probably didn't help either.

    It's been 4 years since Covenant released, without any concrete news.. They're probably having a hard time figuring out what to to on the film side.
  7. Evanus
    I'm sure they'll do another film eventually. Of course, they're probably focusing on the TV show right now. But I can't imagine they're not planning on doing another film down the line, especially when they're already doing a new Predator.

    Question is, what kind of film? The idea of an Alien 5 seems to be off the cards, for some reason.
  8. Tusky
    Sweet

    A bit late showing the art work if Scott dunk A5.
    Still nice work but I don’t think Disney will do another film after the prequels unfortunately.
  9. Perfect-Organism
    I think that’s what we’re looking at, and I have to say... that’s kind of dumb.  And I’ve been a big supporter of this film getting done.  Now I’m not so sure.  I mean this takes the earlier images of Ripley in an alien suit to another level of dumb.
  10. Russian
    I enjoyed all Blomkamp's movies and was looking forward to Alien 5 and RoboCop Returns. But I don't know how to feel about that "Alien Killer" suit. Perhaps it was a good thing this movie got scrapped?

    I don't really get the negativity for the Alien 5 project.

    The general reception was overwhelmingly positive.  In spite of reservations many had about Blomkamps track record.

    I don't really get the negativity for the Alien 5 project. I wasn't thrilled that it would feature Ripley, but might as well. Even if Ripley herself is not in it, every Alien production has a character cut from Ripley cloth. So, fine! Let there be Ripley. And we can have Michael Biehn as Hicks, too. Again, might as well.

    Even the worst Alien movie is worth a watch when it shows up on TV or whatever. And as others suggested, it could work well as an animated movie. You can get away with a lot more in an animated movie. The change of medium might be liberating.

    As for what our Hicks knows about not-publicly-seen materials... Eh! I don't know what that is, so I've no idea what I'm missing. But I do know that stuff changes from pre-production to final product. What we got might not have been great, but it should have been fun. Hopefully, it wasn't a stinker like The Predator. But even that had its moments.

    I actually quite like District 9 and Chappie. Elysium has ideas and designs that I like (plus Kruger!) but it is mostly a mess.

    I actually really liked Chappie myself (aside from Wolverine's mullet...). But I've struggled with his Alien 5. From what I know of it that isn't in the public, I don't think I'd have been too thrilled with it.

    That said, the same as I'd be quite happy to see Eric Red's script translated to comic or novel, I'd still like to see this make it to some other media so we can see what it would have been like.

    Also, looks like the film's synthetic was called Jax.
  14. Protomorph
    I'm glad this wasn't made. It looks like a typical Blomkamp movie to me loaded with action, mechanoids and futuristic big guns. All this is fine and I like Blomkamps work but it doesn't fit the Alien franchise for me. Keep it horror, keep it mysterious, keep it finely balanced with horror, atmosphere and some action.
  15. Halliday
    They could make it happen! Just think for example about 'Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within' and 'Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars' - or something along the lines of anime aesthetics...
  16. judge death
    Well blomkamp I would dare to say is a one hit director, ever since district 9 he has tried to replicate that success, chappie felt like same ideas: make it documentary style and a movie with a message of life is holy even as AI and is wront to terminate it and then have action scene at the end.
    Robocop movie felt like a good test to see if he could deliver and be a director that would be able to handle a movie like alien v but as its cancelled and he havent done anything since chappie I would say he isnt the guy for the job.

    Also his movie so far seems like a fan movie of aliens v2 with more of that and kenner toys tribute and alien suits and ripley back with hicks and newt and controling xenos with the helmets on their heads and very strange movie and making the xenos silly to me. And this last picture of a human in a queen like suit but much smaller, sneaking onto a queen and xenos ignoring a human for some reason like the kenner toys just feels weird and wouldnt be a good aliens movie.

    Covenant was to me a better movie although it did piss off more fans around me than prometheus did, but I take that any day than a new aliens v2 movie that is safe and please those fans but I fear those are way more than us who want unique horror movies xD
