Updated: Geoffroy Thoorens Shares More Alien 5 Concept Art

Following on from the recent posting of some unseen concept art by Geoffroy Thoorens, the Alien 5 concept artist has updated his ArtStation with another four pieces of concept art! Three of which appear to show Ripley in a firesuit, and the fourth (titled Montero) shows us an orbiting space station with something extending below frame – which may actually been a space elevator!

    Weaver is now way older than Linda Hamilton was when she did Dark Fate.
     (although recently she was doing a lot of stunts for the Avatar sequels, so she's still in pretty good shape).

    If this thing still has any chance of getting made it has to be soon-ish.

    To sum it all up. By the looks of it, seems like the idea was:

    Ripley and Hicks radicalized against the Company and decided to conduct attacks against WY research sites.
    (Given how they've lost so many colleagues, friends due to the Company... yah it makes sense).

    There's no corny "Hicks and Ripley and Newt are one big happy family" stuff.

    And the plan was to continue with Cameron's aesthetics
    while injecting some anime-style influences of their own (the merc helmets are very Appleseed).

    And it would've ended with a probably definite defeat of the Company.


    Other thoughts:

    I like that there's no big Colonial Marines presence in this. There's the dropship and some guns, armor.. that's fine. 
    The Biomech suit stuff could be something they could get away with.. if they did big redesigns
    (gotta get away from that Atax, Halloween suit aesthetic).

    Blomkamp has kind of been channeling a "Cameron meets Verhoeven with a splash of anime" aesthetic and tone through his first three films, so that definitely seems to fit the bill and gel with what we're seeing in the art here.

    The biggest determents for me, like you said, are the very Atax/Kenner-inspired suits, and the odd genetic offshoot Aliens we saw in art a few years back - the ones with multiple heads, limbs, etc. The central ideas/concepts intrigue me, though, and I like Blomkamp's filmmaking enough that I would have been curious to see the final result here. It'd be hard to top Alien 3's Assembly Cut for me, and I certainly wouldn't expect this too (and if I had to pick between only this or only Covenant existing, I'd choose Covenant) - but there's room for different ideas and continuities in Alien. Every filmmaker that comes in puts their own stamp on the material and kind of sidesteps the previous filmmaker's intent anyways, and one of my favorite things about the franchise on the whole is that each filmmaker that comes in is able to really let their own distinct voice shine through. Each Alien film is just as much a distinct part of each individual director's filmography as it is a part of the franchise. There isn't a "house style" that they all adhere to, and I love that.

    Those are all good points but I wanted to see David’s fall into madness or why he would want to destroy humanity. Show don’t tell.

    Prometheus and the Covenant prologue did show us why David hated humanity, though. He felt oppressed and held back by human limitations (and, upon meeting the Engineers, by their very humanlike limitations as well). He saw himself not as an equal to prior generations of creators, but rather as being better in every conceivable way, capable of creating with actual purpose, rather than creating simply for the sake of creating. Once his 'father' was out of the picture, he was free to go off and do just that without anyone holding him back, and he took advantage of that wiping out his genetic predecessors and using them as the raw biological material on which to begin his experiments.

    "The tea, David."

    Disagree with ya on that, Prometheus had some muddled ideas for sure but the scope and the build up was great. Covenant had too many tropes for me, especially with the crew and David. Killing Shaw off screen was a poor attempt at edge. They both look gorgeous  but as far as an Alien story, Prometheus checked off more boxes for me. Witch this artwork for the buried Blomkamp movie does as well.

    These new pieces look Awesome!

    Covenant worked for me on the whole a lot more than Prometheus did. Prommy is gorgeous and packed with intriguing concepts, but by far the best gift it left us with is David, and in my opinion Covenant used David to much better effect. The Gothic Horror "tropes" of Covenant work in its favor, in my opinion. It's a totally unique flavor within the franchise (closest in tone, I guess, to Alien 3, but even that is a stretch). David, in his "Dire Necropolis," distills the themes and big ideas of creation and creators inherent to Prometheus into a much more captivating story and twists what we know (or think we know) about the franchise into something new and mutable. It really opened the floodgates to a whole new onslaught of fascinating concepts - concepts that, it seems, even Blomkamp's film would have dabbled with to some extent or another, given the "Trematode" creature.

    What direction's that exactly?

    I have to say I will take Covenant over Prometheus, any day, and certainly over this Alien concept.

    The Alien in Covenant felt tacked on yes, but the ideas around that felt more coherent, than whatever it is Prometheus attempted to say.
  8. Lost_Hunter
    That’s a good question, the direction they were going before they changed course and shoe horned the Alien in there. This Blomkamp art reminds of the art of the canceled true Prometheus sequel. The artist was Kang Le among others I believe.
  9. Lost_Hunter
    Still not into to the Alien suite but woh this looks cool. The images are dripping with style and talent. I’m more of an Alien fan but I’ve wanted to see a return of the USCMC forever. This should have happened along with a true Prometheus sequel. Instead we got Covenant, way to go Fox.

    Interesting. Reminds me of the old PS2/XBOX game Cold Fear. Still nothing that makes me sit up and say "Yes, I definitely want to see this film!" though...
  11. XENOMORPHOSIS
    Without divulging into insulting one cat like both Ridleu Scott's Prequels and want a conclusion as well as Blomkamp's efforts. Franchise has had it rough since Aliens vs Predator Requiem, Alien vs Predator, Alien Resurrection ect, "I'm aware these films have their qualities and defenders."

    One slight thing to consider could have the cancelation of Neill's Alien Awakening was partly being unimpressed with his script, though BanditIncoprated's video is old he made a critique that Blomkamp's movies are a bit repetitive of ideas and formulaic. Skip to 11:37

    It's the strangest thing though: There's stuff where I don't care one bit what other people think of it and there's other stuff where sometimes it hurts a bit to see people openly trash what I'm fond of.

    Have yet to figure out the actual (psychological) mechanism behind this.

    Going after this ongoing live stream most seem to prefer blomkamps alien 5 with seeing hicks and newt back and kicking aliens ass together, over covenant, few there seem to prefer covenant or what Alien 3 did:

    I think the future of the Alien franchise most likely resides in stories with new characters isolated from one another. The Hawley show will have its core group. any potential future movie will do its own thing, etc.

    As much as I long for one more David narrative…

    Yeah I’m going to have to disagree, I think we need a change of pace in the franchise,  Disney should take advantage of the isolation fan base and do a spin-off.

    What’s left to tell of David, now that we know the end game.
