Gareth edwards would be a GREAT choice for a sequel/reboot!
I could see him definitely being able to depict the Alien in proper terrifying fashion once more.
Were the monsters in "Godzilla" at all terrifying? I didn't think so.
Was it a good thing that Bryan Cranston's character was killed off early in that film? Not to me. (I know that Edwards is not the writer but still, why not ask for a rewrite when there is such a clear character mistake.)
- Anyway, I'm not the only one who was meh about "Godzilla". It has a 6.4/10 rating on IMDb.
That's lower than "Alien: Covenant" and "Prometheus".
- Considering all that, I can't agree with switching to Edwards away from Ridley if another Alien film is approved next year by Fox.
PS. Now to Star Wars, "Godzilla" is rated lower on IMDb than any of the prequels.
- As for "Rogue One", Star Wars now has the help of Disney's massive teams of talented people who are putting the new movies together. It would be very hard for any director to screw that up.
- I don't count "Rogue One" as a predictor of how well Edwards would do with an Alien film.
"Godzilla" and Alien are outside the Disney machine. "Godzilla" is the better measure of what Edwards would do with Alien.
(And if anyone wants to go back to Blomkamp, fine, I'd gladly compare the portrayal of an AI robot/android between Chappie and David.)
