I agree.that the series needs.to evolve, but I'm not.keen on Ridley Scott. AvP as an idea isn't daft. The people hired to make it a reality were daft.

He can keep the core of the Alien and do new things if he is talented enough still. As others have said though, play in the Alien sandbox.

Even if I can't be totally on board with Ridley's vision for the future of franchise i just can't help but respect the man for being honest with his opinion. I think Ridley isn't jerk and realise that he often says not the most popular and anticipated things. But again he has his own different vision and I respect him just for that.

I’d rather the films didn’t try and fill in explanations, but I’d be interested in where he goes with the AI ideas.

I’d be interested in a sci-fi thriller (set in the Alien universe) about a space colony inhabited by synthetics.

Weird is good, but a good script and unnerving your audience with fear is more important.

Alien 1979 is all about fear of the unknown as much as it is about it's sexual subtext.

Leave the politics in the politics board. Any further attempts to continue that angle will be deleted.

Alien: Covenant has grown on me. Granted, I didn't like it upon first theater viewing, but I think that was just me being butt-hurt that it didn't live up to my expectations or they didn't much as much time and effort on the xenomorph as they should have, but it has actually added to and complemented the series and I honestly think Sir Ridley should kind of leave well enough alone - if he must make a third film, just have it be about what happens to David, and focus on the Neomorphs and the Engineers and leave the Xeno alone (imo).

I think Ridley is thinking along those lines. He's obviously tired of the xenomorph. It does what it does. Chases people around and kills them. A psychotic robot trying to become God/Satan is infinitely more interesting at this point imo. I think there is room for some courageous narrative tweaks to the xeno mythos, but Disney is going to play it safe. My prediction is that they'll put two film into production simultaneously. One that finishes the prequel trilogy, and another, safer sequel-esque movie that continues Aliens via tons of nostalgia and action. They'll get Signourney, Biehn, and Henn back. That's where the big potential interest and money is, even if I ultimately sigh at the thought.

He can't, because the third prequel will be the final prequel before Alien. And how the prequel to Big Chap will work without Big Chap? Do you can imagine Revenge of the Sith without Dart Vader or Palpatine? ???

True, It grew on me also. Better to have no Aliens than that ugly CGI thingy. Fox keeps thinking Aliens is a happy go lucky action monster flick. As soon as I saw the main cover of the movie, with that Alien on board the ship thrashing around like a dumb pos, I said to myself again they're going the wrong direction. If that's all they can come up with than yea, better to just stick to AI and world building than mindless Aliens running around like dummies.
