Alien 5: What would you want to happen?

Aliens on Earth for me. It's been too long coming.

(I'd also want it to be a direct sequel to Aliens, but...)

I'd take Ridley Scott if Cameron wasn't interested.

That's what I was thinking. As long as it's based on Aliens being on Earth. But don't forget, AvP needs to do well in the BO before Fox will even think about an Alien 5.

I always wanted either Aliens:Earthwar or for them to find the Alien homeworld, Perhaps a ship of settlers could crash on the planet.

Oh yeah, and no Sigourney Weaver.

Exactly...although I'd prefer "Directed by Ridley Scott" and "Produced by James Cameron"

Here's what should happen:

Opening Scene: We see clips from Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection with Ripley...the screen goes white, and we see that it's the cryo-pod glass hatch lifting up to awaken Ripley aboard the Sulacco...and Hicks is waking her up.

Ripley, still in panic from her dreams notices that Newt's cryo-pod is empty and starts yelling "Where's Newt?!" Hicks calms her down and explains that she's just across the way, getting something to eat after her long sleep...

Ripley runs to a young Newt, embraces her and gives her a big hug.

"Did you get to dream?" asks Newt.

"I dreamt so much," Ripley responds. "Now it's time for us to live."

There's a shot of the exterior of the ship heading into Earth orbit and the title credit appears:

"Alien: Rebirth"

The screen goes black and text appears saying:

"20 Years Later"


The story begins on Earth with Ripley, Hicks and Newt (all played by the orginal actors, since it's 20 years later!) preparing for Newt's wedding. Hicks (who's now a general) gets a call from the President concerning an unknown spaceship that's been spotted heading towards Earth...one that looks exactly like the Derilict ship from the original "Alien".

And the story continues from there...

Lets not make this happen. There is no need for another Alien movie. But can't wait to check out Alien Vs. Predator.

Low budget film - a prequel to the first movie. The alien race that initially makes contact and crashlands on the planet, the company finding out and at the end seeing the nostromo blast off. You'd have to put a bit more in there of course, maybe a new crew doing something in space that gets wiped out in the end. Low budget, model ships, no major film stars. Less is more.

Either that or Nutt's idea

In all honesty, I think AvP will end up being even worse than Alien 3 or Resurrection.

I could be surprised, but I doubt it. It's just a stupid concept IMO, and will at best result in a decent, plot less popcorn flick.

I agree with you 100%. I don't see how Paul Anderson could make a decent movie, let alone a decent Alien flick. I'm sure AvP will turn out to be the crap that we all think it will be.

As for what I'd like to see in Alien 5? Well, that would be assuming that I actually want to see Alien 5 made, which I don't. Don't mean to threadcrap, but that's just my 2 cents.

The earth idea is always intriguing. The Alien Homeworld COULD be intriguing, but on the other hand, do we really want to know all the backstory of these creatures? Doesn't that just take away the mystique of the whole situation?

Anyway, the dream idea is...no offense...terrible. Sure Alien 3 is pretty mediocre as an Alien film (interesting nonetheless) and Resurrection is...well not good. But that's where the story is. Personally I think Whedon's 200 year jump was inane and really pointless. They didn't move the technology forward, they lost half the company name, and for what? What was the purpose except to create an ugly Alien wannabe? But, that movie does put Aliens on earth so...they could just run from there. Just ge a script that has better dialogue than what was in that movie.

I did find it amusing that the Resurection people kept saying how they put all this dark humor in Resurection. First off, Alien should not be a comedy, second, whatever humor they put in, they forgot to be funny. So, next time don't hire Jeunet...he's a great director, but not of Alien flicks.

It's not personal, but the series really needs to move on. The way the forced her into Resurrection is the worst aspect of the movie (and that's saying alot).

If anyone saw Angel last night, you could bring in Wolfram + Hart to help.

Or not.

I honestly can't wait for Alien vs. Predator. Is there a trailer or teaser anywhere around?

Yeah, it shows nothing.

Cameron has expressed interest in directing a fifth Alien movie.

There's a teaser that shows nothing. You can view it at www.apple.com.

I would like to see the plans to make them viable military weapons come to fruition. I want to see who they intended to use them against.

I think it would be great if they just left well enough alone...

I like this one, sounds great to me. Get to work on that screenplay!!
