    The only way I'd possibly want to see her in another alien movie is if they made a proper sequel to aliens
    bringing back hicks and newt
    . Never happen and probably a good thing too.

    Exactly. Hicks and Newt
    were killed
    . What has been seen can never be unseen! :D

    Not in favour of changing what has been done, no matter how much I hated Resurrection.

    To be honest I pay alien 3 and resurrection about as much attention as I do the lost boy sequels.

    Never understood the hate for 3. My last favourite of the trilogy but still enjoyed it, anxious thought it wrapped up Ripley's journey well.

    The CGI was a bit ropey in the tunnel chases but not enough to spoil it.

    Not for me - aliens moved ripley story on nicely, cathartic and all. As soon as ripley, newt and bishop were 'dealt with' at the beginning of alien 3 it lost interest because a. I'd invested so much in those characters in aliens and b. the characters in alien 3 were barely given any time to register - shameful waste of some fantastic actors too.

    Alien 3 was a virtual reality experiment designed to test her loyalty to the 'the company' and see how she would behave if they used her to try and secure another Alien specimen.;)
    Problem solved, now they can do a proper sequel to Aliens with Ripley, Newt & Hicks as it should have been. :smashin:

    Really don't think David Fincher would be too chuffed about this 'Bobby Ewing Shower' scenario happening. :laugh: It would be kinda like a big slap in his face. :blush: Obviously it would never happen though.... Would it? :rolleyes:

    Not sure Fincher would be that bothered. He has pretty much disowned the film and refuses to have anything to do with it.

    Yep, apologies Garrett, I slipped up there too. :( Thanks for modifying my post & any quotes.

    Apologies also to any members who may have not seen Alien 3 & Resurrection but read our posts before modification. :suicide:

    Garrett you made a blunder though, you attached tags instead of
    to my one, so the spoiler was put on a little sign, instead of spoilered!

    And Phil's Quote in Markus' following post needs the appropriate tag attention too, unless Markus could amend it himself... :smashin:

    News on the film rating, i assume Scott will be filming with for an R-rating, and they will edit one version down, allowing Tim Rothman (head of 20th Century Fox) and Scott to decide what they want to release.

    Im glad Scott is involved in the process and that he makes the final judgement to what works better. And hopefully we get two versions for the blu/dvd release.

    = Wider audience therefore more revenue... I know it sucks, but thats how Hollywood tend to market big blockbusters these days! :(

    At least it's a fair compromise that they'll release an R rated version on DVD/BD. They could just not have done that at all. If the film is good then I'll watch it at the cinema once and then on Blu repeatetly. Also, the original Alien and Aliens are quite tame by today's standarts and they would probably get a PG-13 today.

    There were reports that Scott was struggling getting the cast and an R-rated cut for the budget he demanded. Now that he got his budget, he compromised slightly on the cast (Charlize Theron instead of Michelle Yeoh) and on the rating.

    The thought of Charlize Theron in space has grown on me, she's a good actor really.

    Liking all this new Prometheus news... apparently it shares one piece of DNA with the original Alien but that's all, and we'll understand how it relates in the last few minutes of the film (space jockey maybe??). Scott says he's using minimal digital effects and that he'll never work without 3D again... oh and he also wants to scare the living poop out of us. :cool:

    Low gravity suggests it probably isn't LV426.

    a small bit of info I missed earlier is that Theron apparently said ”...she is really the suit, she's the one that runs the company,” you can speculate as to what this could mean..
