Title: New Images of StudioADI Alien 5 Maquette
Post by: RidgeTop on Jan 08, 2022, 01:23:35 AM
Podcaster Joe Rogan showed off some images of the StudioADI Alien maquette created for Neil Blomkamp's cancelled Alien 5 project.

Between the arms and feet I'm convinced he was going to go "Big Chaps become Queens" with all of this.

I hope they relase the script soon and stop teasing us or just make the movie

I can picture an eighty year old Neill Blomkamp going "Guys it would have performatived the best felatio on fans" and answering questions on his potato growing blog.

Lol the alien 5 movie would been bad, ripley in a alien queen combat suit, and the whole plot from what we seen and ridley to cancel it, and the fact blomkamp hasnt done a good movie since district 9, his robocop remake got cancelled too.....
Plus remote controling xenos by a vr helmet, and xen drone combat suit/helmet for humans to use wtf.

The alien design: the quality is good and nice to see the original design, some changes in it, but adding those tiny arms just make it look silly, and why? It dont need those arms and why would it even get them? Plus they are so small they dont do any good use, I dont see any purpose for them besides the designer thinking it would be cool just because. xD

I can literally say the same about Queen having extra set of arms

I can't stand the double-jointed dog legs. Horrible. Now almost every modern rendition of the classic Alien design has to have them.

The second set of arms are rubbish.

Glad A5 wasn't made. Going by the A5 pre-production art, it probably would've turned into another CGI sh*t-fest, fan service exercise.

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

Whatever the case, my mindset on this new reveal is the same as it has been on most of the others – I'm glad we didn't get this particular movie, but I'm also constantly fascinated to see more and learn about what would have been.

We cannot know what this movie would've been. We do know however that Covenant is a bad movie.

And I agree, extra arms could've gone down the queen road, I'm not too fond of the idea, but again, with lack of context... Ah we'll probably never know.

You may be mistaking with "ADI can't do predators mouths correctly", except that one is totally true.

That was just some fan art an artist created to try and grab Blomkamp's attention. You can't lay that on the poor man. :D

Really? 65% RT, 65 Metacritic, B CinemaScore. That's considered "generally positive".

I think you unintentionally mistook this franchise for Star Wars. It  is  not, it's Alien(s) franchise. You're welcome

This idea's more offensive to my sensibilities than Ridley Scott's most inane Alien ideas, and Neill Blomkamp's track record speaks for itself.

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'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.

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.
Title: Re: New Images of StudioADI Alien 5 Maquette

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

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

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).

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.
Title: Re: New Images of StudioADI Alien 5 Maquette
Post by: Nightmare Asylum on Jan 13, 2022, 03:03:01 PM
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.

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.
