You guys should know by now that Ridley is a notorious trickster.

Yup.  Absolutely love what he is doing.  He's very consciously driving this forward on the anticipation of 'The Martian' being a big hit. 

Absolutely love it.  Instead of nagging on about the title, I'm embracing it as a new entry in the series.  After all, including Blomkamp's  effort, we are getting 4 new 'ALIEN' movies now.   I don't care that Ridley is making the series his own.  He should have made the sequel to 'ALIEN' in the first place.

Maybe he'll retcon 'ALIENS' as well as anything beyond the original movie.  Now THAT would be something to whine about.  After all, he has been known to say it's not the direction he would have taken the 2nd movie if he was involved. 

I'm so looking forward to see how this all unfolds over the next few years.  Love what you're doing, Sir Scott.  Absolutely love it!

I meant the one that was implied to have been sent to destroy earth (but never made it because - Aliens) thousands of years ago back when humans fell out of favor with the Engineers. (For killing space jesus or some shit)  I mean - that was obviously what they were implying so as far as we know what what info we have the Derelict from Alien was headed for earth with deadly cargo and crashed on LV-426 around the same time as when the shit hit the fan on LV-223.

Oh, I thought that it was the Juggernaut which was in charge to destroy us ?!
I also had the feeling that the Derelict had been there for a long time, but destined for another planet or moon rather than Earth.

If really it was headed to us, then we are lucky that the Space Jockey did not set the ship on autopilot  :laugh:

And plus - it gives the little guys a voice to. Blomkamp's not the only huge Alien fan (he's just the one with the most Hollywood connections). ;)

Wonder what the title for Neill Blomkamp's move is going to be, what with Prometheus 2 being renamed Alien: Paradise Lost, Blomkamp has said he has a title but that it gives away the plot, his words

“I sent what I wanted as the title to Ridley. It’s kinda quite bold, and he was like, ‘I really like that.’ So I’m gonna test it, I don’t think it’s gonna work, though. I have my own idea but it gives away too much if I say the title. But in the event that it doesn’t work, I’m dead in the water…”

That, by extension, would retcon Blomkamp's movie. I doubt he plans to erase a film he has just recently agreed to produce, unless he really wants to stick it to Neill.

Super Aliens.

That will be the title of NB's alien 5.

Meaning Scott should have went with Super Prometheus.

I absolutely share your enthusiasm I think this is an amazing time for Alien purists. For me Alien Isolation got the ball rolling with everything, that restored so much integrity for the IP it was perfect.

I do think Alien: Paradise Lost is subject to a name change though, but that's me being a cynicalist. Bring on the first poster I say!

Yeah, I doubt Fox would let him retcon the most popular entry in the franchise. Killing-off Hix 'n N00t almost resulted in rioting and general public unrest back in the day.

Not sure what Scott's thoughts are with regards to Alien 3. His son worked on it and Scott also visited the set during production.

The Juggernaut in Prometheus was in charge to destroy humanity. Who knows what the Alien derelict story was, it's still a mystery - at least for now.

In the original Alien: Engineers script it was one and the same ship. It was also already on autopilot and on it's way to earth with the Engineer/Pilot already dead. That is why the Magellan (which would later become the Prometheus) had to ram it out of the sky. Simple eh?  :)

I really hope that the universe doesn't tighten to the point where we can't make any sensible stories with the Predator crossover...

Just what the original film actually doesn't need; explanation. It's gonna water down the effect of the original Alien.

On the other hand it's the only other ALIEN film that he's praised.

.... LOL

They should have it so a character breaks the fourth, looking at the camera and say 'Predator does not exist in the Alien universe'

I agree entirely.  However epic and classic the original films are, calling them together a 'saga' akin to Star Wars was weak at best.  Blomkamp and Ridley have an opportunity to really create something that truly makes the Alien universe come to life (or death, I should probably say).  Since the late 90s at least, AVP has become little more than an ever-circling world of cliches and repetitive plots; I seriously think that the circle is not only about to be broken, but shattered.
