Marines? I hope you guys aren't talking about Covenant's sequel because there is almost zero percent chance of that happening. If you want to talk about fan service, inserting wise cracking tough guy marines and the queen back into the series is the definition of fan service.

Why would any of those well known actors jump aboard the sinking ship that is the Alien franchise? lol
Keep dreaming that dream.

According to BOMJ, Prometheus took in roughly 3.1 times its budget.

Covenant is at 2.34, still with a Japan release. I would argue that would push it to the 2.5-2.75 arena.

Not nearly as bad when you look at it like that.

This.

A little perspective is always a refreshing thing. There is so much negativity in this thread.

13 days in China and it's $43.47 million so far. It's very unlikely it will reach 50 but it's still better than Prometheus (34 in total).

I've never known a sinking ship to stay afloat as long as nearly 40 years.

It'd be more than just an Alien entry. It's a Ridley Scott movie lol. Anyone would work with him.

Because Ridley Scott. Ridley Scott worked with A-List stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Michael Fassbender, Russell Crowe, etc....

Alien movies don't need A-list stars. Fassbender is enough. Besides, look at actors in Alien. They were known to the public but weren't superstars, not mentioning Weaver who was totally new in the business.

Lol. If we want A list stars, let us want. Alien just might need a bona fide star the next movie to bolster box office. So don't be so agonized.

If you want to watch an Alien movie with no stars just watch most of the other Alien movies. The only star-stars at the time of their respective entries are arguably only Winona and Charlize, and Fassbender but only with Covenant. And Franco barely counts but obviously an A-lister.

On the tier below A list I'd say, Elba, McBride and Pearce would be there.

I'd like to see Denzel Washington headline the next film. He was great in American Gangster.

Never been an A-lister.

He'd be great squaring off against Fassbender.
