QuoteAsked if the Weylan-Yutani corporation is the show's focus, Landgraf says, "The Alien cinematic universe is that it's a world where that's sort of dominated by large corporate entities, and Weylan-Yutani has been in an important component of the movies. There are references to that corporation in this show. But it actually takes place in the territory of a different corporation that Noah invented."The executive went on to compare the series to the first two Alien films, both of which were critical and box office hits with their own uniquely creative approach."I'm a big fan of Alien and Aliens and I remember watching both of them in the theater and how how shockingly original and surprising each of them was in its own way," Landgraf says. "And so, similar to his approach to Fargo, Noah decided to not to take Ripley or any character from Alien – except perhaps the xenomorph itself – but go back and figure out what made the franchise so great and so durable in the first place and see if he could find an experience that felt like walking into a theater and seeing one of those first two movies, where you get caught off guard. That's all I can say at this point though."

The foundation was that it was a f**king scary movie about a face-raping chest-erupting monster with production design infinitely better than the concept deserved. The rest is icing on the cake.

From the Alvarez film, however...
