The film’s creators describe why Aliens is the way it is.
Sigourney Weaver takes Ripley in a new direction in the recently announced survival horror DLC.
Footage for the upcoming Alien: Isolation videogame shows us more reasons to be afraid. Be very afraid.
Will the upcoming survival horror game set in the Alien universe scratch that xenomorph itch? We investigate.
As we see in the video, the game takes more from the 1979 horror movie than the 1986 action movie.
The xenomorphs want to kill you. I’m not just saying this because I’ve seen all of the movies where H.R. Giger’s creation appears (Alien and Aliens, among them). I’m saying this because I’ve seen the “survival multiplayer” trailer for the upcoming videogame, Aliens: Colonial Marines. Not only do they want to kill you, but also they’re pretty good at it.
One of the reasons the Alien franchise, which kicked off in 1979 with Ridley Scott’s horror film, Alien, was so popular is because of the alien itself, an organic kill-machine that was both horrifying and mesmerizing to watch. This xenomorph is unmistakably the work of H.R. Giger, a Swiss artist, whose work has been described as “biomechanical.”
The international launch trailer for Prometheus is out, and it has 30 seconds of more footage (or is that “appendage”) than the U.S. trailer. I loved the U.S. trailer, which started out hopeful and turned our hope into fear faster than a leather egg can open. This new trailer isn’t as dramatic as the U.S. one, but it manages to outdo its American counterpart in one important way: it’s hella frightening.
A few weeks ago, 20th Century Fox created a TED presentation that turned out to be a sly form of advertising for the upcoming film, Prometheus. Now they’ve released another video in the form of an infomercial for their robot, David.
When I spoke with Randy Pitchford, Gearbox CEO and major Aliens franchise fan, it wasn’t long before he landed the first dropship of awesome in my lap: He told me that the upcoming FPS, Aliens: Colonial Marines (A:CM), is a continuation of the first three Aliens films…and is completely canon. That’s right. This videogame is fabulously and officially 20th Century Fox-approved.
