Nothing featuring Mad Dog and Rama is the worst part of anything. ;)

Blade Runner aesthetics would be lovely to see. Hearing this actually makes me more excited.

It's true that Prometheus does feel very disconnected from Alien because of its looks.

I'm thinking it will be a mash up of art styles.  I'm guessing the aesthetic the art department has embraced will take some of 'Prometheus' lavish looking sets and dressed it with some of the retro-future presentation of 'ALIEN'.  Throw some empty beer cans around the place, drape it all in failing neon, add puddles and have some hare krishnas wonder through the set.  lol.

'Blade Runner' did have some remarkable production design, that's for sure.  Revisiting that philosophy in an 'ALIEN' movie would be fantastic!

i'd love to see something really lovecraftian monsters like those crazy Rathtars from star wars..


One of the worst parts of that movie,
i would love to see nothing of that at all.

it's very lovecraftian, squid-monsters trying to devour everything. I agree it didn't fit star wars.
I would leave it with movies as Pirates of the, journey to mysterious island and movies like that.
But thats my personal opinion.

Im hoping and still waiting for that undefineable stuff like the cargo hold of the Derelict, the jockey look (not the baldies)
the green crystal room, the room with the urns.

Don't get me wrong, I did buy into their explanations but it still doesn't gel quite as well. I will be very very happy to see that used and abused aesthetic return to the screen. It's one of many things that helps make Alien.

Even today with all the fancy CGI and other modern wonders available to filmmakers, it's still the benchmark for film production design. Nothing has surpassed it yet.

Fassbender wouldn’t though divulge too much about the plot of the much anticipated film.

“I’m really excited about this one I have to say,” he said. “There’s a lot going on, I think it is going to be super scary.”

Take my money now!!!

Can't access the article. Could you post the whole thing?

And that's really great to hear. I hadn't really considered returning to the horror genre but if Ridders is going back down that road and makes it work on the big screen like it worked in Isolation and the original Alien, I'm all for it!
