    With the whole Disney/Fox thing I can see this going one of two ways.

    They let Scott make another prequel leading into Alien because they don't know what else to do.

    Or they go the soft reboot route and retread old material in a kind-of-different-but-kind-of-the-same sort of way. An Alien: Isolation type movie with a single Alien set on a space station or something. Then an Aliens: Colonial Marines thing (hopefully not embarrassingly godawful) with loads of Aliens and guns. Then completely goings nuts with a proper Aliens vs. Predator if The Predator doesn't reinvigorate that franchise, pushing the shared universe stuff that's big right now.

    But whatever it is I'm sure we'll argue about it of course feelsgoodman

    The FYC score finally leaked. It's interesting--almost every cue is mixed very differently, not even counting the new stuff. In this rawer, less polished mix, you can really hear how uncomfortable Kurzel is with orchestral stuff, it's seriously dialed down and sometimes even missing from cues where an orchestra is present on the album. The official soundtrack album is definitely the best presentation of this music. It's still the weakest proper Alien score by far, though.

    I've done three 12Hr shifts in a row with a conference group for which I had to stand all day, now I'm lying in bed feeling like shit and I can't find anything to entertain me. It's now 12AM but I'm so deprived of energy I can't even seem to sleep.

    Anyway have some fan art of Walter X Daniels.

    I watched Alien Covenant for the first time on blu ray a couple of hours ago. Anything involving the Alien remains pretty weak and rushed but the David/ Walter scenes remain utterly compelling in their own creepy and campy way.

    fucking covenant

    Nobody took magic wands on the away mission ........ and I've watched that movie a few times now and not ONCE do they scan to see if any voldemorts populate the planet or if any dragons were going to pop up.

    it's lazy writing at its finest

    List of things that could happen to Alien™
    Ridley Scott makes another sequel or two.
    Disney scraps the franchise permanently.
    Disney builds a Cinematic Universe.
    Disney makes a film every so often.

    List of how I would react;

    Apathy.

    Granted, a movie with Katherine Waterston and a Magic Wand is something I'd like to see. nicsrs
