Honestly, if they look as good as the Prawns, I'm all up for photo realistic mo-cap Aliens. I've never been so impressed with a visual effect than watching D9 for the first time.

But I'm still always going for prefer and miss seeing practical suits.

Fokken prawns!

They did make some practical creatures for that, but only for the scene where they break into the lab and you see them lying on the operating tables.

glad it's Weta.

as far as the story goes....
with the hybrid and her handlers, this is sounding like a sober remake of Resurrection.

Even if this ends up being pretty good, I will not be able to enjoy it due to the scummy people involved

Ego got too big for their heads?


Guess we'll hear about casting soon

My boiz from ADI shall return !!!

Yup!

Super stoked it's Weta. I mean over-the-moon excited. No fears here that it won't look good! Woot!!! 👏

What do you care ? They're not doing Predators for the show as far as I know. And ADI haven't done any Aliens for more than a decade

Truly, truly, nothing would make me happier than me potentially applauding their work in "Prey." :)

Hey I didn't bring it up! But to answer your question...

Because me likey Alien, and me likey Weta, and me can't wait to see their work in the series. (And me personally believes ADI bid for the job.)

Somebody said they're thankful it's not ADI and you replied "Yup!" I thought you don't care about ADI Aliens. You're even in Chet Official Fan Club !

And argument "I want some other studio doing Aliens" doesn't quite work here 'cause we technically had exactly that in Covenant.

Speaking of which, Covenant is why I'll be a little bummed if there're no practical Xenos. CGI Aliens can look great and all but I wanna me some practical suits !

Their Alien work is alright. I don't love it, but I don't hate it as much as the "Snalien" crowd. I wouldn't be excited if ADI was announced, but not depressed either. But Weta??? Mucho excitement!!!

I founded it!

Yep, and that's an official ADI creation I'm a big fan of, unabashedly! Give me more Predalien!!

Awesome! Speaking of District 9, I hope they give Bloomkamp an episode to direct.

Not with Riddles as producer and certainly not after Chappie.

Do you know who's doing the helmets?
