That treatment for avp3 is so close to one I created it’s scary!! Man that’s weird. Mine ended up with space jockeys coming in at the end and was kind of a Star Wars-esque space battle at the end, along with 2 protags battling a space jockey in the pilot chamber at the end. Even had some sweet Space jockey creature designs which were suuuper creepy. Got the design from a Nightmare I had. Maybe I’ll turn it into a comic...
I will have a more detailed write-up of that treatment up at some point. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
10 years just goes by so fast.
It's hard to think. I can still remember all the time prowling the internet looking for details, all the time I spent on that trivia games on the official website. I had so many of those posters.
It was such a fun time.
I very much enjoyed this conversation and learning a bit more about what went on in development. AVPR really was the horror/sci-fi film that resonated with me at the time, and while I've seen more of its flaws since then, the positive feelings around the film stuck. And all things considered... it could've been a lot worse.
It was easily one of my favorite interviews that we've ever done. Opinions of the films themselves aside, I appreciate learning more about the experience the people working on the films had and I think Liam offered some really interesting insights into AvPR's production.
Things like their insecurity around the plot leading to them putting more homages in. That kind of thing fascinates me.
Glad to hear Beyond Skyline is getting a lot more love than its predecessor. I'm excited to check it out this weekend.
I'm really interested in seeing it after reading the positive reviews. I'm hoping I'll find a showing somewhere nearby.
I'm really glad this podcast turned out as good as it did. I know I personally had aspirations to get Colin back but whether or not he would have done it or not is another story. Lucky that Liam contacted just as we were looking for somebody. Instead of the typical roundtable discussion, it was nice to hear from someone who worked on the movie post-release. There's a lot of nuggets in there we need to add to our Trivia page.
It was incredibly fortuitous. Liam was incredibely honest and I think that made for some really interesting responses. There's definitely plenty of interesting trivia in there! RidgeTop mentioned it after recording but I do wish we'd have asked if Liam had known about any other R words they explored for the title.
It's a shame the Kendra stuff never made it to the DVD. I did hear from Colin that was like a whole second day of the film that had been totally cut out. It was me who told you about the west and east coast stuff. Colin told me Fox refused to show them the DVD masters and it turned out to be way darker than it was supposed to be.
I would certainly buy another release if they sorted out the colour grading and put all the deleted scenes back in.
Thanks for the kind words guys.
