Hi guys first post,

I was just wondering what your thoughts were regarding how well received both critically and from fans the Halloween retcon was and if you thought that because of this then the execs at fox might think twice about making an alien retcon film.

They probably thought about it more than twice when they were looking at Blomkamp's retcon.

And ultimately decided against it.

You can't make an Alien film for $10m.

However the idea might appeal to Disney once they take over.

They might consider it after Ridley is done, but the Halloween retcon was much more acceptable among the fanbase than an Alien one could ever be.

The Alien series can go into many directions, there is a lot of space for ideas, it can work with new characters, we can always have new aliens pooping out of somewhere. While Halloween is dependable on Michael Myers, so at this point the only options were either a retcon or another remake, and considering how those failed, retcon it is.
