Sorry to disappoint all the Shaw-haters, but I seriously doubt we have seen the last of her Either she is off Tombraidin' on Paradise:Planet or she's asleep in that Engineer hyper-sleep pod which worked pretty nifty for 2 millennia, so she'll be back in a later movie
As for Blomkamp, i really hope that movie never gets made...that will be just like J.J.Abrams..."star wars:the force awakens" blatant stroking ripley fans...I'm so sick of that a xenomorph franchise shouldn't be able to go anywhere without having a particular human, ripley, attached to every freaking movie...ripley is worse than the face-hugers...instead of calling it Alien 5, call it Ripley 5...or "Ripley 5: Hicks & Newt strikes back!"
No more force awakens plz...I don't care how many would go see the movie...
I love this post, lol. Nice job.
As was said earlier in the comments, this decision to me makes it really feel like they're a bit lost as to where they want the story to go. In many interviews, Ridley expresses the constant need to 'sell tickets' and how hard that is, which just continues to illuminate the pathetic state that Hollywood has fallen to.
I mean of course they have to sell tickets, but it's an insane world where tickets are not sold by good movies, but by formulas to appeal to people's base impulses, nostalgia/remakes, and constant references to former, better
It really is obvious that Hollywood's riding a better era of filmmaking as hard as they can into the ground, and the only solution is for the bottom to fall out so creativity can return and the cycle can start anew.
I also think it's worth mentioning that who actually trusts them to come up with a cohesive story, given how much of a disaster they've left the entire franchise? Hell, it's spilled over into 4 different franchises
now that are each their own disasters. I'd say the lore and universe with the most consistency left is Predator.
