I was interested for a second till I read it was in the Sunday Sport
Anyway I hate the obsession with Ellen Ripley (is it just an American thing to call everyone by their surname?). Let her rest, it's a big universe, you would think someone else would have encountered them and survived!
Calling people by their surname is big for military and some team situations. At my last job I was always referred to by my last name because there were multiple people with the same first name.
In the case of Alien, it probably has more to do with the fact that Ripley sounds more prominent than calling her Ellen.
I agree with moving past Ripley’s story and steering clear of the cloning concept. I’d rather see them go in the direction of Alien Isolation’s story.
