Let's not forget that Gibson wrote his script 33 years ago, when the idea of a new alien and of genetic modification were fresh. Now, it's cliche and every alien movie since 1997 had the urge to introduce a new, "better" monster.

True enough! I wasn't criticising Gibson for that though - just why I wouldn't want to see it show up in Blomkamp's. As much as I like the idea as presented in certain ways, it's a little boring at the moment.

The "introducing a new Alien every time" mentality has been a thing '86, with Aliens' Queen, and was continued in Alien 3's Runner even before Resurrection went all out with literal genetic tampering.

It's just kind of baked into the franchise's post-Alien DNA at this point.

For being the perfect organism and having acid and extreme immune system etc it seems its super easy to do genetic experiments and change to any scientist wish, even easier than changing human dna xD Xenos should be extremly hard to change their dna and genes, its after all alien to human and how our genes work.

William Gibson's script actually had something talking about the ease in which the Alien's DNA allows itself to be manipulated, like a GMO weapon. And I know I'm being contradictory with how bored I am of genetic modification storylines at the minute, but I do like the idea of the Alien deliberately being flexible in its design and parameters. (Just let's have a break when all the other franchises were doing it).

As long as it's not too Kenner, I have no problem with what evolves to adapt vs. a definitive organism that never changes.

Good point actually. I would love a scene of scientist trying to dissect a Xeno only to find out its blood melts all the instruments  :D

I have to imagine this would have been some in-between form with Big Chap transitioning into a Queen?

I'm not so sure, as it looked like this was leaning very heavily into the mutant/genetic engineering angle based on Huante's concept art. Which is another reason I was glad to see this not take off. I'm so bored of that angle.

I like the goofy extra arms and overly large head. It's cute and i want to pet it.
Fine by me as a "weird mutant alien".

But overall Blomkamp isn't a good director and his art direction for this project was beyond silly at times.

And Joe Rogan is a transphobe and Blomkamps little friendship with him and his relentless simping for Elon Musk... not cute at all.

Glad this project is dead.

Design elements may show up in the tv series if ADI ends up being involved.. lol

I think part of the reason is that it looks od while running on all fours.

Didnt they said they were doing practical effects for the most part

Add that to the list of "Music I've definitely heard somewhere before but didn't know where it oritinated from"
