Apos: Trocadero: I'm watching Alien right now, so I'm getting a kick!

Also, the scene where Ripley finds Dallas all gooed up, trying to say "kill me," was that the original cut or the director's cut?

The latter.


That scene sort of farks with the second movie's depiction of the xeno life cycle.


9beers: fusillade762: this new promo also implies that a PG-13 is out of the question. Doesn't it?

I read an article a couple days ago that said Ridley had given his blessing for the studio to go with whatever rating they felt would make them the most money. The studio said no farking way were they going to mess with Ridley's vision and wouldn't be cutting anything.

Here's a quote from another article....

"The rating board has not opened yet and it will go in to the board soon. This I can tell you and I can tell all the fans, not one frame will be cut. The movie will be what it should be. We will not cut a frame of the film. We will stand behind it 100 percent and if that means it's an R, then so be it, because not an ounce, not a percentage are we going to compromise the film."


That's good to hear. Can't make proper body horror with a PG-13.

I thought it was interesting that they kept the same high-pitched repeating squeal as a theme, the same as in the original Alien trailer.

Hate to break up your little nerd love fest, but Weekend at Bernies did this first, and did it without 100 million in CGI.

I always figured it was what an alien did if there wasnt a queen around. Maybe the person puts out a queen hugger or something. Plus, being turned into a giger egg thing is alot creepier than having that thing pop out of your chest, IMO. At least the chest thing is fairly quick.

"First, there are no cows in space...."

Despite Ridley Scott's involvement, put me in the 'overproduced crap' camp
on this one. The original ALIEN worked because it was self contained in
every sense: the setting was claustrophobic and small scale, and only
referred to things from outside the plot that moved the plot itself forward.

This is far too epic seeming.

Jaws_Victim: Is anyone hoping for SIgourney Weaver to make a cameo? She still looks great and I'd love to see her on the Nostromo years later as they slowly glide to the planet.


Only if it's from the same crotchal angle as when she was getting into the space suit in Alien. That scene gave me a puberty.

TheOriginalEd: My problem with this line of reasoning is that whenever someone comes along and whines that the trailer is showing too much, theyre assuming that theyve seen all there is to see and can fill in the blanks themselves.


Yeah, I see what you mean. I remember the trailer for a movie (the French ''Brigade du Tigres'') and there was seemed to tell the whole story. I thought ''what a waste''.

Then I saw the movie, and the trailer only showed scenes from the first 15-minutes. What seemed like the climax in the trailer was only the initial incident in the movie.

PainInTheASP: There's been a lot of new additions to the Weyland Industries website as well. Mostly background info on the tech that we'll be seeing in the movie. It'll burn a half-hour of your time at least.

Weyland Industries


That website is awesome. I imagine some of the stuff that is "restricted" now will be opened up in the future for more awesomeness.

For whatever it's worth, I always thought that the xeno wasn't storing Dallas for egg implantation, it was storing him for later eating. A queen xeno would need incubation vessels for the facehuggers, a worker xeno would just need a quick snack every now and then.

I loved this movie when it was on TV called ALF.
 
2012-04-30 09:44:59 AM
In my opinion, the trailer did give away the movie from start to finish. I should have avoided all these trailers. I was really excited before. Imagining what this movie would be, kind of like a kid. I even wanted to go opening night, see the imax, have a fun night. Now, I'll probably sit around on my lazy a$$ and wait on the blu-ray...

And by the way. Aliens was the only Alien movie that was Awesome. I still can't get enough of Aliens, it was a total masterpiece! But besides introducing us to super cool chest bursting, IMO the original Alien movie was sort of a ho-hum slasher film to me.

So is this a prequel to Alien or not? There seems to be a lot of back and forth about this... and now that Weyland Industries trailer.

WTF.

Pretty much no one involved in the project has denied it takes place in the same universe as the Aliens franchise, but the unclear thing is if they events are actually a prequel or just something that takes place earlier. So it's either a spin-off or a prequel, essentially.
 
2012-04-30 10:11:59 AM

PsyLord: So is this a prequel to Alien or not?


My takeaway from the trailer is that Weyland-Yutani learned about the location of some kind of xeno from archeologists and sent Prometheus to investigate. Because of this discovery, or concurrently with it, the Nostromo was diverted to investigate the signal on LV-486. So, an earlier time in the same universe, but Prometheus the movie is not a direct prequel to Alien the movie.

Plant Rights Activist: 1. explore planet cause the pictographs told you to do it

2. Find aliens

3. Aliens find Earth. Attempt to take off towards Earth.

4. Are somehow thwarted by Ripley-esque person.

5. Alien ship crashes back onto planet.


Yeah, the trailer didn't give too much away. nope. not at all.


They actually gave away even more.

2.5 The crew encounter other Alienish bioweapons, ramping up the horror. The actual mature aliens never appear.

4.5 Someone pilots the Prometheus into a collision with the Horseshoe shaped alien spaceship to stop it.

I have the unobtanium edition dvd with that deleted scene along with O'Bannon's commentary. It was cut for time and to give a sense of total isolation to Ripley. It was better to give the appearance that everyone was dead already when she initiates the reactor meltdown to scuttle the ship rather than Ripley was abandoning the ship with Brett, Dallas, Parker and Lambert still alive albeit doomed.

That is strang cause the commentary I watched Alien with said it was cause they did not want to give to much on the alien. Could be that both are true in their own reasoning. I think that was Scotts point of view on why it was cut. Still, There could be a lot gained from that one scene. And can still fit with the established Alien Queen. Dallas wanted to die cause he was scared of what could happen and what he has seen. Maybe Lambert was killed right in front of him in a horrible way and he did not want that. Does not mean he had a chest burster inside him as originally scripted.

is the scene from Aliens when Ripley finds Carter Burke all gooped to the wall ready for chestbursting and hands him a grenade available anywhere?
 
2012-04-30 01:10:54 PM
So yeah, was spending the night at my aunt and uncle's, and they have all the movie channels, was going through Cinemax late at night (obviously) and instead stumbled across Alien. However, it must have been a new remaster (I have the very first DVD copy that came out). It seemed a lot brighter, and more "blue." I remember on VHS and DVD that the ship was a little yellowy, and the dark parts were grimy black. Now it looks like a lot more blue gets through, in the lighting and metals throughout parts of the ship. And they left the Dallas/goo scene in now. Didn't see Brett's death, to see if Ripley and Parker run in only to get sprinkled in Brett's blood (another cut scene.) Basically, it's the Blu-Ray cut, and I guess they want the Dallas/goo scene in now. What really makes me wonder is if Ridley A) ever bothered to go see Aliens, B) liked it or disliked it, C) accepted the Queen Alien lore, and D) whether he would try and retcon the Queen out in Prometheus (assuming we ever get a xenomorph cameo or explanation at the end of the movie.)

You should of seen that alternate ending where Carter Burke is alive and made it back to the ship. When the Queen attacks, Ripley ties several grenades to him and throws him at the Queen before ejecting them both into space right as the grenades go off.

Knowing what she does about Carter Burke, why would she do that? It was Burke who tried to get her and Newt infected so he could get the xenomorphs past quarantine. If I were Ripley, I'd let him suffer. Then I'd start fondling myself, 'cause *DAMN*.

the scene was shot; the explosion from the grenade that she hands burke is still in the film, the entire scene is in the comic adaptation and in the novelization. Ripley finds him, he says something like "help me, i can feel it moving" and Ripley hands him a grenade. Ripley was a human being first and foremost. she couldn't just let him go thru the chestburst birth of an alien.

Oh man, That one was epic. But then there was the one where Ripley tied Carter Burke to the Queen, Tossed them both in front of the main canons on the ship and fired those massive guns at point blank range.
