We’ll also be keeping on eye on Geoffroy’s ArtStation in-case he posts these pieces on there and we can get better quality copies of these particular pieces.

Update 14/06/21 – Geoffroy has uploaded some more concept artwork, this time showing off what appears to be a character named Miller trapped and being attacked by a new form of the Alien (a Trematode). This may in fact be the creature in the first picture above and not a chestburster attack. It also seems like it maybe related to this concept by Doug “please look at me neill blomkamp” Williams (thanks to Nightmare Asylum for the shout).

  1. Nightmare Asylum
    Yep. Dark Fate is the only one outside of the first two that I like. It obviously doesn't reach the quality of the first two, but I actually really like it, to be honest. There's Jimbo thumbprints all over it.
  2. Kimarhi
    I actually liked Dark Fate as the third best Terminator, but what it did at the box office is going to turn studios off to that sort of thing.






    Only if Keanu can bring back the Matrix will it be considered.
  3. Nightmare Asylum
    Make that film please, release it on hulu. Or make a new Alien 5 with Sigourney, it's now or never.

    Post-Terminator: Dark Fate, I'm guessing Disney/20th Century Studios is leaning much more towards the "or never" on this kind of partial-reboot movie with Sigourney. They didn't even bother looking at the Hill/Giler treatment that came after this one. If they could do it as cheap as the recent Halloween then maybeeee but there's no way that'd ever actually be possible.

    Nowadays when i look at weird story ideas in Alien i think back to Blue Marsalis..

    A lot of these weirder "no that could never work" concepts can be good and compelling in the hands of the right writer,
    done with the right care, with proper themes and stakes in place.
    (They could've gotten away with the biomech suit idea too if written well.. and if the final design didn't look like a halloween costume).

    Was there any actual screenwriter attached to this or was it just Blomkamp going at it alone?
  5. skhellter
    And looks like the trematodes also birth facehuggers...  ???

    Likely random result of genetic tampering like the rest of the creatures in this. (Huante mentioned that a lot of his mutated aliens weren't really meant to "work well"... still deadly, though.)

    The "Anchor" seen here seems to connect directly to the Montero station.

    Going back to old stuff, this hangar is aboard the Montero (you can see the name on the white "arm" that holds the dropship).

    But of a strange thing to theorize, if he removed Ripley changing the characters, creatures settings it could just be an unrelated sci-if flick, may likely loose alot of its appeal if that were done, noticed a similarly with his short film Rakka
  7. irn
    From the concept art it looks like it could have been a decent film (alien suit aside). But then again concept art normally looks way better than the final product. It would be much better if they replaced the Ripley and Hicks characters with maybe the parents of Hicks, or one of the other Marines, or someone else affected by what happened in Aliens and seeking the truth about what happened on the LV-426 mission, so Alien 3 wouldn't be wiped away. I know that would never happen since Ripley and Hicks are the selling point of this project.
  8. Kimarhi
    I think he could've done alright with an Aliens movie, but NOT the one presented in the cover art.  Despite my ribbing of certain people on the boards, I could never actually be down for giant robot alien suits.  Or humans wearing any sort of Alien suit.

    Somebody would have to rework the script. 
  9. Nightmare Asylum
    What most action movies lack today is any kind of soul, and even if he hasn't mastered the technique, every one of his movies have that spark.

    "I am consciousness. I am alive. I am Chappie."

    I didn't care for Elysium either originally, but I like it much better after I got over the fact that it wasn't District 9 2. 

    I love what Elysium was going for (and Kruger, of course :D ), but I think it would have benefitted from being a smaller, grimier movie. It has too much of a Hollywood sheen to it, and I think that undercuts the message to some degree. I don't hate it, but it is something I admire more for what it is trying to be, rather than what it actually is. Not unlike Prometheus, in a sense, in that it is a messy script and the execution is lacking, but it has great ideas some really cool visuals. 'Dat Syd Mead.

    I still think he would have been a great fit for a Robocop movie, and I'm pretty bummed that that one was canceled.
  10. Kimarhi
    I would disagree about him failing harder each time. I think Elysium is absolutely his worst film – it is his biggest and most conventionally mainstream and, perhaps as a direct result, feels the most compromised and sloppy. I'm in a weird minority that quite likes Chappie, though; I may even prefer it to District 9, actually. And I do look forward to checking out his new one, Demonic.

    My major reservations about him taking on an Alien have less to do with his specific body of work and any patterns within, and more to do with some or the specific ideas present in the concept art tied to his project.

    Still think District 9 is his best work, but I actually dig Chappie.  I'm sure some of it is the nostalgia factor.  To me, aside from the still working directors of the 80's, he's the closest that can capture the feel of all those 80's sci fi actioners.

    Not against the concepts he uses and aliens is basicly alien retold with a different tone and do things differently witht he same lore and creature. My point about blomkamp is more: since district 9 he has tried to do the same movie and replicate the same success but failing harder and harder at it.

    See no he doesn't. District 9 is pretty unique among his filmography for how it was edited so meticulously. There's a reason people still love that movie. The others, are not like that. Elysium was almost like that and somebody at Sony who in Sony fashion had no idea who they hired as writer director after he made a movie scathing racism and apartheid, and had to say in the nerdiest pussiest way "WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH YOU CAN'T JUST MURDER THE PEOPLE TREATING THE EARTH AS TRASH" because that movie was I guess supposedly much more to do with Kill Bill style revenge porn once people got to Elysium. He makes similar movies because he knows the system won't make it, why bother. I agree they're similar but District 9 is its own beast and you can tell he put the most energy into its ideas as someone from South Africa himself. I can watch that movie again and again. What's missing from his other films is that sense of multiple perspectives from handheld in story, to handheld out of story, to flat shots never being used in story but to tell the events as they happen as a movie would, handheld that's in story but different than the other handheld and seems to be from a news team or MNU or someone different, maybe all of the above, CCTV footage, and a documentary happening after the events of the film.

    It's a genius way to hook you in to what he's trying to say because it instantly hooks you into the idea of a documentary and doesn't make you unsatisfied that's not all it is by the end. To say they're the same is to say that it's edited similarly and these movies are not in any way edited similarly lol

    As someone else said: blomkamp has since district 9 pretty much done the same setup and theme in all of his movies: docu or message kind of start of the movie, then nailing down the message like in chappie that all life is sacred etc and then a mecha suit end battle.

    I get the same feeling here: would see Ripley and hicks and they are dragged into weyland yutani trying to do something with the xenos and threatening life on earth and newt so they start to fight back and its probably a drama docu style in the start, showing weyland yutani doing things and those guards with that dog picture might be a tv recording of WY entering some hotspot. Then at the end we have ripley in the queen mecha suit fighting the queen alien and lots of action. Blomkamp must have mecha suits or robots, its in all of his movies :P

    Yes but District 9 did it actually well, every action movie can be exactly the same set up and do it well.Aliens is effectively a carbon copy of Alien, glaringly obvious towards the end. That doesn't matter, what matters is he learned how Hollywood worked and Hollywood doesn't want its support and romantic notions for say, Apartheid, because the people against Apartheid were largely socialists, to be central to the conversation anyone is having. They, and thus Neil because he's not stupid, knows what they want. Which is some stupid childish fantasy. The editing of the camera work and how scenes play out of District 9 is nowhere close to his other films, mixing with static camera for story happening at the time and handheld, then handheld moved in such a way that it feels documentary or investigative, perhaps home video of some sort.Then there's news footage. And then there's documentary happening of the events that already happened, his own father in the beginning raising curiosity saying "He (Vickus) died in my mind a long time ago". It asks whoever is watching "Well why would a father say that about his own son, now I'm intrigued."

    You learn "Oh right, he's an Afrikaaner through and through it all makes sense now
  15. Rush Hour Rambo
    Thoorens is talented that's for sure. This stuff looks great.

    I do wish for a fresh direction for the franchise, moving away from Scott who I think has lost his spark for these movies.

    This might have been it.

    I just want another Alien movie proper. Is that really too much to ask?
  16. TNF
    These are individual artists releasing content that was (presumably) under an embargo of some sort until very recently. "The point" is simply to show their talents in order to secure further work. It's not their fault the project was canned, so lighten up, dude.
    Agreed. Oh for the days before the internet when we didn't get to see concept art until right about the time of release, if ever! And we liked it!  ;D
  17. The Necronoir
    Isn't it just rubbing salt in wounds at this point? Seeing all this concept art is just like saying "Here's what you could have had, but will never get to see." What's the point?

  18. Gilfryd
    Now that I think of it maybe Hicks' bio-gun is an Existenz moment where he has to sneak in an organic weapon undetected?

    I'd also like it a bit more if Ripley (or whoever) was piloting a big clunky (possibly retrofitted) Space Jockey-type suit.
  19. Bug hunt wilson
    There another piece of concept art that seems to be missing here .its on the artists website calls johnshon knocks jax it's a hazamat dude beating a android with a fire extinguisher .
  20. Bug hunt wilson
    Has the other artist nda papers retired if so why haven't they post their it's essently free marketing.And while there at it relase the script or make the moive one of the two I don't care.

  22. Baron Von Marlon
    Anyone noticed the flag emblems on the arms of the mercenaries.
    There's one from South Korea, Belgium and I think Burkina Faso.
    Making me think it'll be about infighting between countries and/or them having to work together, which possibly could be Blomkamp's message.
  23. Gilfryd
    I don't have anything against a big Alien bio-mech thing ('Ripley and the Alien becoming one' and all that) but having it be a hollowed out Queen and just that (big crest and everything) makes it come across too... comic book/video gamey.

    I like the idea of Ripley and Hicks going rogue against the company and Ripley 'suiting up' one last time to save the day (following the compression suit on the Narcissus and the power loader on the Sulaco), but those weaponized Alien/bio-mech designs don't inspire much confidence. Stuff like guns with exposed vertebrae and Queen power loader mech suits is the most uninteresting (and kinda stupid/fanboyish) way of approaching the company finally weaponizing Alien biology. (I know it's just concept art and we really don't know anything but that's how it's coming across to me.)
  26. NetworkATTH
    Im sorry if i opened up some kind of proverbial can whoop ass.

    I just don't think he's as dumb. I just think he's cynical. But he made one movie without cynicism whatsoever and pointed out how f**ked international support for apartheid was and made it fantastic to watch in editing and in plotting. And the fact some had to be cut because it went over their heads feels like it should be from the 70's. Not 2009
