Again, we have no idea what this film may or may not do. Hicks is in it? Great. He could also be a flashback, dream sequence or waking hallucination. If 'Terminator 2' was being made and we had a picture or two of Sarah Connor interacting with Kyle Reese, people would be shouting RETCON from the virtual rooftops, right about now, too - but context would matter.

We know nothing, guys. Absolutely nothing, whatsoever.

Just hope it'll do its job as a movie and will prove entertaining.

'Alien Isolation' is a big f**king massive retcon of the highest order, but nobody's up in arms about that. Everyone just loves how atmospheric it was (and, dare I say it, but perhaps her involvement with that title heavily contributed to Weaver's engagement with this one). If you can like that game, then there's just as much of a chance you could possibly like this, too.

Alien Isolation - to my knowledge... Just expanded on her daughter's story. Was there something else added that contradicts anything in the Alien films? Apart from the idea of the Company lying to ripley about her daughter. Cause that's not the same thing as a retcon.

Yes exactly, nothing in Alien: Isolation was a retcon, it simply expanded upon existing material and (retroactively) made us suspected of Burke's terminology- but that's an extremely minor retcon considering most don't trust Burke already.

Michael Biehn is at Pensacon 2015 and according to an attendee over at Reddit he has been contacted about the new movie.

This is so surreal. Something that should've never happened but somehow is. Now with the actual possibility that Biehn is signing on after all, it's finally hitting me  :o

That quote from the Reddit top, was beautiful D: Hope this is not fake U.U

Isolation is a game and most people don't give a shit what they do with the story. Bubble-gum pink Aliens all the way, man.

Whoooooaaaaaaaaaaah!  :o

All we need to know now is if Alien 3 and Resurrection are dreams or not.. I'm hoping they're not made into dreams.

Would explain the different cryotubes, different colour writing on the Sulaco and the magic egg if they were dreams though....

Yeah but the whole "It was a dream" thing is a huge cop out and I would be extremely disappointed.

Burke had no reason to lie - and Ripley had every reason to look up her daughter's life details from non-company sources. She would have been at her utmost paranoid about trusting the company at that point. Finding out Amanda went off in search of her voice recorder to somewhere which came to grief, Nostromo-style, would have been a big red flag.

And the fact nobody's heard about anything remotely like the Alien... Nobody mentoning that the woman's daughter mentioned encountering something similar, at Ellen's own hearing? Not plausible.

And if the company was nefarious and evil, having a reason for covering it up, then they would have also had every reason to go and seek out LV-426 and actively scour it before Ellen returned. They didn't. It's just another colony to them. One which they never bothered putting any real dedicated bio-warfare personnel or facilities on.

The game's really well presented and worthy of being praised, but even its own writers copped out of providing an explanation for Amanda's inclusion. :)

So, again, if people can take that gaming experience to heart, they can enjoy a movie which retcons the third/fourth movie, too. 'Isolation' proved that, so well as something is done well, people just won't care.
