He seems really passionate about it. It looks like he had a blast filming it. Good for him !

Nightmare Asylum

Watched this interview twice, loved it. Fede just really seems to get it.

BigDaddyJohn

I really hope that translates in the movie.

Love listening to this guy talk Alien.

Nightmare Asylum

Just a stray thought, based on what Fede says in this interview. On Renaissance Station, we know the Remus module is older and has tech more rooted in Alien's visual language, while the Romulus module has newer tech that skews closer to Aliens. Would be cool to see the Alien: Covenant/Alien Weyland-Yutani logo used on board Remus, while the Aliens/Alien 3 logo (yes, I know there's a bit of a difference with the pointed edges in Alien 3's, but for all intents and purposes they're the same logo in-universe) is used on the Corbelan IV and in the Romulus module.

Yeah, that would be really cool, and another very strong visual way to portray what he is saying there. One of the other interviews also talks about the whole Prometheus/Alien of it all. I know that's been a fansplanation for quite a while, but it's one I do agree with and I like seeing Fede also bring up.

I know a lot of people felt like it makes no sense. But I think we make the mistake when we watch the Nostromo and assume that's how the entire universe looks like. If I decide to make a movie on Earth today, and I go to the Mojave Desert and I take an old truck because a guy drives a Chevy, if you're an alien, you're going to go, "That's what the world looks like." But it doesn't mean there's not a guy in a Tesla in the city, which would be the "Prometheus" ship. The first movie is truck drivers in a beat-up truck. "Prometheus" is the ship of the richest man in the world.

This is a pretty good point actually.

That is a very endearing interview. Fede gets it. Good luck to him.

GreybackElder

This interview was fantastic. He had the perfect mindset for this teaser trailer. He didn't want to show everything but want to establish the mood and atmosphere that this film brings. I'm optimistic and the hype right now for me is sooo real.

Enjoyed this interview! Wish he could have expanded on the conversation with Cameron about the "another bug hunt" comment from Aliens and how that conversation went.

I always wondered about that myself, that the Marines were somehow aware of a hostile alien species and had been on missions related to them previously but had no idea about the term Xenomorph and appeared to be completely unaware of what they were dealing with once deployed.

Quote"bug hunt" is a play on "snipe hunt," a term that can be used to describe a purposeless task

Quote from: SM on Nov 13, 2016, 09:25:32 PMA 'bug hunt' in the context of Aliens is a literal hunt for bugs (ie. indigenous ET lifeforms).  It contrasts with a 'stand up fight' (eg. a terrorist or insurrectionist situation).

Still not sure how this 'wild goose chase' idea still perpetuates.

I totally agree with him.
