Not too many examples of this approach being successful. Stopping franchise getting milked doesn't stop new interesting movies being made, on the contrary.

It does kinda ruin Alien films for new generations. I'm super thankful I got to experience Alien as it was in my childhood. The idea seeing Covenant first makes me want to puke a bit.

What's the point making new entry in existing franchise, that deviates significantly or even outright contradicts what was presented earlier. Isn't it better to make something brand new?

I personally don't look at it that way, if Prometheus had a good story, I'd be all for that kind of approach. In spite of what we got I still am in fact. As for first exposure. If viewed in theatrical release order like people ought to we have nothing to worry about.

Because studios are bloody cowards and hate taking risks. So you might as well hijack existing franchises to tell new stories

Being limited is good for creativity, these rules (that I continue to be vague about, will try to expand once less busy) doesn't mean new ideas can't be introduced. But they have to add without destroying the core in the process. That's one of the more important rules.

Utter nonsense.

what truly ruined that movie was cocaine, tho (and weird attitudes towards people with autism). :laugh:

absolutely f**king bizarre movie that goes from "this is kind of fun" to "f**king dire" often in the same scene within 15 seconds..

If limits keep silly shit like dance numbers out of this, I'm all for having limits.

Would you be down for a flute solo though?

Only if he wears half a facemask, but that might get in the way.

I take it that means this must be acceptable then?



Nightmare Asylum

The Obi-Wan Kenobi art shown at last year's Disney Investor Day (the very same event where the show was announced) just leaked online.

Crossing my fingers in hopes that whatever they showed/discussed (if anything of note) for this series when they cut the camera so regular viewers at home wouldn't be able to see leaks as well...

I don't think there will be any musical, but if I'm wrong, I'm sure Noah will know how to give it the right context.  :laugh:

We haven't had a good execution of new ideas in Alien so far. Prometheus went from prequel, to almost prequel and then to an expensive 2 hours prologue for an spin-of series...before returning to Alien in Covenant. But I think that even for a spin-off, it could have been better with a superior script.

One of the things that I respect about James Cameron is that he doesn't use existing franchises to exploit the themes he is passionate about today.  :laugh:
