The Aliens are going to look more realistic in the actual movie, right? I'm a little concerned from what I've seen so far. It looks very CGI up to this point, bordering on Alien 3 CGI, and I don't mean the rod puppet effect.

I want to see more scenes with the facehugger.  The scariest creature in the Alien films, yet we rarely see them.  That scene in Aliens with the 2 facehuggers is the most suspenseful scene in that movie.
Dude, I agree. That part was so intense.

Look at how the left wall bends around the facehugger as it leaps into the shadows.

Alien spacetime warping confirmed.

It's not a wall. It's just rag-alike curtain :)

That was hilarious until someone pointed out reality.  :laugh:

I think we've seen enough TV spots now though. It'd be nice if we don't get any more.

Yeah, I agree. It's a lot, but they need it to do well. Kinda crazy that we only just got the first trailer three months and three weeks ago!

I expect a heavy push for promo material on Alien Day, though.

The work on that little snapshot of the Face-hugger darting away is very well done.So well done I initially thought it was a puppet.Certainly has a weight and physicality about it, especially in its movement.

The Xenomorph also has a physicality about it and would go as far to say,especially with it's back tubes jerking about,that it is a guy in a suit with CGI added touch ups.

Either way those two shots look particularly well done.

Everything we've seen so far looks CG to me. I think we've yet to see a single practical shot in action which is kind of worrying. Although the Alien looks a marked improvement from recent outings, it still doesn't look to me like it's actually there.

If this is CG then it is good. I'm calling it a guy in a suit though. Check how the back tubes kind of bounce like they are rubber. Seems odd they would do that with CG.

Definitely CG. And awesome.

So many aliens. So darn happy. ;D

I would have to agree with you on all of the above. IMO, this is the best the alien has looked in a very long time.

I hate the dorsal tubes, they look odd and seem to flop around

But it doesn't. The CGI is solid.

I spy some brief new footage of the spores infecting someone.

Split off and merged with existing TV spots thread.
