I don't think three films is really enough to objectively judge Blomkamp's talent. District 9 was superb but Elysium was bland (visuals and Copley aside) and Chappie was massively uneven (and I say that despite liking both). All three have some fantastic elements but the latter two obviously have their share of negatives.

I do at least hope Blomkamp works with someone on the script, someone who can help balance his shortcomings as a writer.

ACM may never be officially retconned but you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be completely ignored in the future.

Amen to that. Although, I don't think A:CM is even worth the energy of thought required to retcon. Easier just to throw it in the "LOL yeah whatever" bin along side AvP Requiem.

Maybe Blomkamp's new 'ALIEN' movie will just be called 'Big Chappie'...

Allegedly Prometheus 2 is still coming before this. Which is a good idea if you ask me. Sort of tent-poling P2 before this...

These sites always do the same, and usually are rumors of dubious credibility. They are not a reliable source.

Don't even know the difference between Alien and Aliens. Should stick to realty.

Ah, okay thanks! It's hard to remember what is what with SM gone.

I said ALLEGEDLY guys... But it goes to show how what someone mentioned (I can't remember which of you said it) is true. That casual film fans don't follow the continuity and may not even notice or care about a retcon.

I am still thinking Fox may release Prometheus 2 first, while keeping fans in the pool eagerly awaiting Alien-kamp. It would be a smart marketing strategy cause it would use the hype for Alien-kamp to generate revenue for Prometheus 2.
