As far as I'm concerned Sil is an Engineer weapon broadcast into space to wipe out civilisations before they become too advanced.

Maybe Earth is the hub of the story but everything else is off world or something.

From Hawley, back in July 2021:

QuoteIt's not a Ripley story. She's one of the great characters of all time, and I think the story has been told pretty perfectly, and I don't want to mess with it. It's a story that's set on Earth also. The alien stories are always trapped... Trapped in a prison, trapped in a space ship. I thought it would be interesting to open it up a little bit so that the stakes of "What happens if you can't contain it?" are more immediate.

The intent is definitely to bring the Aliens themselves to Earth.

In the movie The Tomorrow War, the protagonists discover that the alien outbreak originated from a spaceship buried in a glacier millennia ago. With climate change the ice melted and the monsters woke up to take over the world. Furthermore, the characters theorize that the aliens and the ship were biological arsenal created by an unknown alien civilization, and that humans may or may not be the target. I couldn't help but mentalize the same scenario but with the Aliens & Engineers. Anyhow, something on that scale in the Prometheus era and before 1979's Alien is impossible.

Welcome to the fandom


I don't hate it. But I'm pretty disinterested at the moment seeing as it will be set primarily on Earth prior to the first movie. It's kind of retcon I can't stomach because why ? Why would you do that ?  I don't see the benefits of doing that while the problems are piling on top of one another. At least in first AvP movie Aliens were brought to Earth not by humans and filmakers made a point of telling (and showing) that if Aliens get loose on the surface it'll mean end of humanity

It'll take pretty great word of mouth for me to get excited again

Something to keep in mind here...

By Prometheus time mankind had already colonized a number of worlds beyond our solar system.

Hawley's comment makes it sound very much like the Aliens will be on Earth so I don't get what bringing up other planets has to do with anything. Also I'm not sure anybody was doubting that other colonised worlds existed?

It's pretty obvious the Space Amazon driver got lost on his way to deliver them to LV-426 and accidently threw them over Earth's back fence instead. Fits with the whole theme of corporate irresponsibility.

1. Found underneath the Earth.

2. Brought from somewhere else, with us following dualing or even triple perhaps narrative threads, probably not in our solar system.

3. Crash lands.

Sil being connected's more of a stretch than Blade Runner, and I'm not just saying that because I prefer it's classier cousin, I just don't see them utilizing a transmission as a plot point because of the original Alien film.

The Species 'embedded blueprint' concept is actually something that Raised By Wolves has riffed on, in a sense, as well. In season one, it is revealed that...

Spoiler
The blueprints for the show's Necromancer androids (like the main character Mother) were not actually developed by the Mithraic forces on Earth, but rather, were found embedded within ancient Mithraic scripture. The Mithraic merely built the Necromancer machines according to schematics that they believe came from their god Sol, when in all actuality they likely that they were embedded there ages ago by whatever the "Signal" posing as Sol on Kepler-22b is.

Speaking of which, can you imagine that for Noah, what David did in Covenant is like when the Mithraic designed the Necromancer to fight against atheists, using an ancient blueprint?  :laugh:

That's almost certainly the route I expect them to go now, as far as retconning David as the creator goes. The only alternative would be straight up wiping Prometheus and Covenant from the continuity, which I guess is possible (they did it with the AVPs, thankfully), but retconning David into merely re-inventing (and not being aware of the "re-" part of his place in all of this) the Alien seems to be the more likely route for them to take.

I still think the best route forward would be to just set any future stories, including Hawley's show here, after the events of the prequels, and simply just not acknowledging the exact origin of the eggs on hand in any specific instance. I also think that anything set on Earth should absolutely not be set prior to Alien, but hey, that's just me!

A post-Alien 3 setting would have been perfect here for both setting this series on Earth without stepping on the original trilogy's toes, and for being able to play fast and loose with the David as creator angle. Pre-Alien, like they're doing here, ends up just stepping on every installment's toes.

I really wonder what, specifically, is the main narrative thread that makes this a story that has to be set prior to Alien? Prior to the release of Covenant and the revelation of David as creator, which firmly set the story pre-Alien, I also thought that Prometheus was a story that, with very minimal changes, could have just as easily been told post-Alien 3.

That's assuming the producer knew what he was talking about.

And if it really does take place around Prometheus, I have to wonder why. If they aren't involving the prequels or actively going against them, then why would they pick that time period?

Unless they have good reason, I feel like I'm going to wish they'd just set this after Covenant and used the Advent transmission.

I do think David's story deserves a conclusion, but it ought to be developed as such, not forced into a separate project.

Fingers crossed. Ridley's definitely still in their good graces as producer, at least, what with the Noah Hawley show and Fede Álvarez movie (and Asbell seems to have a particular affection for Ridley and his prequels, based on his Twitter posts) and the recent Kenneth Branagh Hercule Poirot movies.

I wonder what particular (Alien-related or otherwise) film(s) Asbell might be referring to, that Scott apparently has up his sleeve as a director at 20th. It'd have to be something after Gladiator 2 at this point. :D

Disney always wants to build brands, they do not rock the boat, if he ever got to make another Alien prequel they would absolutely make an effort to not incur the criticisms that the others incurred even if they miss the point and create new ones.

This is the main thing that worries me. I'd much rather see risks taken, even if they don't all land, than see them simply play safe and just retread Alien/Aliens (as The Force Awakens is to A New Hope).

For the many issues I have with the sound of certain elements Hawley show (namely the Prometheus-era, pre-Alien Earth setting), I'm at least intrigued by the fact that it seems to be leaning into/expanding on ideas that go beyond what was just in the first couple movies.

But as I've said a few times, I am all for seeing - and explicitly want to see - new filmmakers come in and really put their own stamp on the material. That's the whole fun of Alien as an ongoing franchise to me, the way it is always reinventing itself under the guiding hand of some real A-level filmmakers with very distinct voices. I just really wish that the Ridley Scott prequels would have gotten a chance to properly wrap up before we kickstarted this particular wave of new films/shows from new filmmakers that we're about to enter with Hawley and Álvarez.

And I also wish Alien's entire future wasn't locked into Hulu, but I digress there...

Well that's exactly what I'm saying and they have already stated openly, the films on Hulu can do whatever they want essentially as can Noah Hawley, but any big event Theatrical Film? Like a final prequel, or an AVP film, will be played safe.

I honestly don't think we'll see aliens on earth. It seems more like we'll see what it's like from Earths perspective when stuff goes down that would go down in a usual Alien movie.
