Isabela Merced Talks “Disgusting” Alien: Romulus Scene

With Sony’s “Madame Web” due out in cinemas tomorrow, the cast has been doing the press rounds promoting the new Spiderman universe film. One such cast member is Isabela Merced, one of the actors from Fede Alvarez’s upcoming Alien: Romulus! Though Merced didn’t dish the specifics, in a new article with The Hollywood Reporter she talked about a “disgusting” scene that made all her cast members look away!

Merced is also starring alongside Cailee Spaeny in Fede Álvarez’s upcoming Alien: Romulus, which takes place between Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979) and James Cameron’s Aliens (1986). During a recent round of reshoots, Merced and some nearby cast/crew got to watch a significant chunk of the film on Álvarez’s iPad, and one scene in particular prompted everyone but Merced to look away in horror.

“There’s a scene that I’m in, and they all had to turn away. Not one person stayed looking at that iPad because it was so disgusting,” Merced reveals. “And I was watching it like this … (Merced pretends to hold an iPad with a mesmerized look on her face.) I was so excited.”

The article also points that Alien: Romulus is currently undergoing reshoots. Fede Alvarez reported that he’d finished an assembly of Alien: Romulus in October last year and that after showing it to Sir Ridley Scott, that the Romulus director was “terrified” about Ridley’s response.

“And then he walks into the room and he did say “Fede, what can I say? It’s fucking great.” For me it was like…ahhh…My family knows it was one of the best moments of my life to have a master like him, which I admired so much, to even watch a movie I made but particularly something like this…and talk to me for an hour about what he liked about it.

    Because they're Gen Z, they cannot strive to be actors? I know a few folk who used to be young at one point... Every single human being. With that logic, Sigourney Weaver would have been too young, as she was only a few years older than Cailee Spaeny at the time of the release of ALIEN in 1979.

    I mean, it wasn't mediocre. Everything affects everyone differently. Some people will find it super nasty, some won't be phased. Example from 1979 with the Chestburster scene.

    Some of us will be the guy in the back smiling, some of us would be flinching. Every single person has different taste. Some us here will think it was awesome, and others, possibly not.

    But you'll have to wait and see that instead of making assumptions because the cast is young. They don't feel like teenagers who'd be dancing on TikTok in this movie at all. They felt like young adults who've live in a futuristic world and deal with that life they live.

    I doubt a trailer will help dispel this really stupid discourse about the cast being young, but people are still complaining about Naru from PREY taking down a Predator years later. So I don't see that lame discussion going away.

    these Gen Z people who turned "actors" are today´s biggest softs , so if she talks about some scene like it is "disgusting" i think its pretty mediocre  visual-wise. ..

    Alien Day is the perfect day to drop a trailer. I don't know for sure if that's when it's coming, but I think it's safe to expect it then. If they want to help fans celebrate the franchise on one specific day, dropping a trailer would be a good way to do it.

    Quote from: Nightmare Asylum on Feb 20, 2024, 01:47:19 PMApparently Romulus starts very soon after Alien ends, in which case Isolation (if it's even considered canon) would be a ways off from happening yet.

    What indicates this ? If true, this could get us closer to the Big Chap coming back theory.

    McWeeny's a reliable source. And Asbell commented on it, to boot.

    Any source on this number?

    Quote from: Mr. Joe on Feb 19, 2024, 12:56:12 PMmaybe Caile - Amanda after Isolation, before comics Aliens Defiance, Resistance

    Apparently Romulus starts very soon after Alien ends, in which case Isolation (if it's even considered canon) would be a ways off from happening yet.

    It does seem as though there will be quite a bit of aesthetic influence from Isolation here, though.
