What I'm looking forward to most are the next batch of interviews where Ridley Scott goes off on some more spontaneously rambling tangents.
Ive said this before and I will say it again. Not to be a jerk but just to be sure this stays fresh in people's minds.
Anyone who says another ALIEN film after PROMETHEUS will not happen is sorely, sorely mistaken.
The ONLY question is what that film will be and if you don't WANT it to be PARADISE, well you can pretty much be assured that the next ALIEN film will be a REBOOT/REMAKE of ALIEN that follows in sequence after PROMETHEUS.
That's how PROMETHEUS set things up, and THAT IS WHAT FOX LOVED ABOUT LINDELOF'S DRAFT.
If you don't root for PARADISE, then you will be delivered an ALIEN reboot.
Do you want that to happen?
After ALIEN 3 - which was a clear ending, we still got A:R.
After A:R effectively ruined the franchise, we ended up with AVP.
After AVP turned a smart adult-themed series into a PG-13 cartoon and everyone hated it, we STILL got AVP-R.
NOBODY LIKED AVP-R. It is one of the most widely despised films in recent memory. It didn't even do well at the BOX OFFICE and yet....
...WE STILL GOT PROMETHEUS!
Even though the next logical step, at that time was a remake/reboot of ALIEN...
Do the math here.
PARADISE or REBOOT. That's whats on the table.
