Hmm, they're not doing themselves any favours bringing that alien out of storage.

Anyone but ADI. Please f**king god say they're not involved. The fact that tom woodruff posted a photo of himself in aliens armour next to a alien resurrection mould says everything. He'll wear the suit in alien 5 and look like a chubby actor in a plastic costume. Anyone but them, please

That statue looks better than what they produced  :laugh: .
Even though it's a painted cast of the Resurrection Aliens?
it looks better than the rubber crap we got.

You do realize that ADI are not the problem right? its the directors and studio that makes the design choices and cuts corners.
They are just doing their jobs to a T, the choices are not theirs.

Any of the poll choices above could be forced to make a fleshy crap looking alien if it is requested by the director or studio. So people really need to lay off ADI.

Yeah, I don't get the hate for ADI. Sure there Aliens looked crap, but how much of that was down to the design they were told to produce?

From a technical standpoint, their work is great.

People just think, "I don't like the Alien design. Who did the special effects?!" they go over at IMDb and ADI are listed as the creators of the effects... so "ADI sucks pls don't bring them back!!!1" An incredibly piss poor thing to say.

Aye, ADI have done some incredible work (including, but not limited to, their work on the various incarnations of the Alien).

I myself am much more fond of the Alien aesthetic than the Resurrection aesthetic, but unfortunately that's not the direction that the latter directors went in. Can't fault ADI for doing what they were hired to do.

Tom has portrayed the Alien since Alien 3 too pal. Every shot he's in I can tell it's a man in a suit whereas in the 1979 film the illusion is much better, despite it STILL being a man in a suit. I'd be willing to bet money Tom will insist on being in the suit again and I just don't think he's tall or slight enough

They were so hands on with the creature designs in the AvP films too and fluffed all them up. They've had their chance. Remember the mandibles on Scar in AvP? Or the Predalien in general. Woeful

Tom didn't direct the moves, though.  Also, the Predalien is what the filmmakers and Fox requested. ADI just worked with the orders given to them.

The lighting is different in those films, Alien 3 tended to have an orange or bronze tint all the time, whereas the previous films were far darker and obscure.
