Having said all that, though, I'm with arch. I don't particularly enjoy comedy in movie format. If we're going by tv shows, ones that come to mind that have made me consistently laugh are Mr. Bean and Who's Line is it Anyway.
So Ridley is planning a total of 5 prequels to the original alien.
Ridley Scott: 'Alien: Covenant' Is First of 3 Films Before Linking Up With Original 'Alien'
Prometheus was born out of my frustration that on Alien 1 in 1979 - I only did one as I don't normally do sequels. I was amazed that in the 3 that followed that no-one asked the question "why the Alien, who made it and why?" Very basic questions. So I came up with the notion of Prometheus 1, which starts to indicate who might have made it and where it came from. So in other words, why was this space jockey there and why did he have an Alien inside him? And those questions will be answered.
Really? Who really cares? I love the ambiguity and mystery of Alien more than any other film. I never ever wanted those questions answered. Especially not in a total of 5 goddamn films.
This feels like it'll be Star Wars Prequels tier of shitness.
Prometheus was alright. I even enjoyed Alien: Resurrection to some extent.
Just let Neill make his goddamn fucking sequel already.
That's Jurassic Park. Someone ban this filth.
It's not the same universe?
Where is Saitama?
Lasers and aliens sounds like a good recipe for a movie.
Is he getting his own movie or is he part of some hero team?
His own film. I just made a thread about it.
