Blomkamp seems to be a big enthusiast of the original Alien design -- seeing as he owns a Sideshow bust of it -- what kind of Alien design would you like to see in the new film?

I wouldn't mind seeing both the Alien and Aliens variation. I would also welcome something akin to the new Alien: Isolation Alien... Giger Alien with digitigrade legs.

I'm not a fan of the digigrade legs, makes it look too much like a dinosaur, but the Isolation alien shows that Giger's design is still beautiful and terrifying. I hope Blomkamp goes for something faithful to Giger's original.

One thing I love is how they got the texture right. It reflects light and just seems to have the same skin as the original Alien -- it had that sort of organic rubber or silicon quality none of the sequels had.

Just for a laugh.


Perfect!

I love the grace that the Alien Isolation Alien exhibited. Whilst you never really saw it in the game, but when we visited Creative Assembly and showed us the model doing these incredible speeds and movements, those digigrade legs made it convincing.

I will be happy if I get to see something like the vent slink in Alienkamp.

Lol.

If there's one thing I dislike about the original film's creature, it's that it's so painfully obvious it's just a man in a suit when you finally see it at the end of the movie. In that regard I actually really dig the digitigrade legs, because it's more inhuman and unsettling. They looked great in Alien: Isolation.

Goddamn, those AVP:R aliens are so awful. Jesus.


Personally I could go for either Alien or Aliens style warriors. My primary concern is that the creature be lit well, demonstrate the grace and ferocity that it did back in the day, and that they do not resort to the noisey, lip quivering, nonsense that the Alien has suffered since Resurrection.

I would love to see the Alien and Aliens variants coexisting in one film as well, with some variants on each of them depending on various circumstances (host, genetic tampering, perhaps a diffident strain of Aliens altogether, etc).

Exactly what you said essentially.

Also I believe their is nothing wrong with the Deacon- is just isn't an Alien.

I like the Deacon, though it is perhaps not the design I would have settled on. I would have gone with something more primordial, ancient looking. Perhaps more biomechanically weaponized, given the nature of its creation. I love the mouth though. The idea of an Alien-offshot (or precursor, whatever the film's intentions were) is an interesting one.

I think it was Omega that said a while back that the Deacon reminded him of Venom, and I'm kind of inclined to agree.

I do like the Ghostly Deacon more though.

I think it was Terx2 calling the Deacon a Venom relative or something like that. As far as Proto-Aliens go, there was a perfect fan concept design that looked like a prehistoric Alien -- heavily inspired by Giger's concepts, but with a stronger jawline. Can't find it, but it was a marvel. Far better than anything in Prometheus.
