Neill Blomkamp Alien Concept Art

Check out the following concept art for an Alien movie that Neill Blomkamp was developing.

Blomkamp posted the images on Instagram with mention this was just a side project of his and nothing to do with any movie studio.

It’s possible Blomkamp, the director behind District 9, Elysium and the upcoming Chappie film, may have intended to use the art as a pitch to Fox for a new Alien flick.

Updated: with two more pieces of art. In addition, Blomkamp makes note that maybe he will go back to it.


Was working on this. Don’t think I am anymore. Love it though. #alien #xenomorph

Sigourney Weaver Not Too Thrilled For Ghostbusters 3 “Ghost Babes” (Video)


Plans are underway for a third Ghostbusters film, which will feature an all-female team as well as be a reboot directed by Paul Feig.

Feig previously stated he was open to having the original cast return, but in new roles for the film.

Well, the cast of the original Ghostbusters appeared on the Today Show to promote the new Ghostbusters Blu-Ray that is now available, with Al Roker bringing up Ghostbusters 3.

Roker directly asks Bill Murray, “When is there going to be a Ghostbusters 3?”

Murray responds by stating it’s hard to recreate the magic, but hears there will be a female cast.

“It’s really hard to recreate something that was so beautiful. So wonderful,” Murray said. “The studio would like to make a movie and continue the franchise. I hear there is going to be one that is all women.”

“Ghost babes,” Sigourney Weaver interjected.

“Ghost babes. Something like that,” Bill Murray stated.

Ghostbuster babes,” Weaver added.

Roker then suggested Sigourney Weaver could still be in it with her reaction less than enthusiastic as she rolls her eyes.

Murray then suggested Ernie Hudson could also have a roll, with the cast laughing and Hudson saying, “Go for it. I’m an actor.”

Hudson previously made comments where he was dismissive to the notion of a rebooted ghostbusters as well.

Press Release


Sigourney Weaver and key cast members from Ridley Scott’s classic 1979 film AlienTM add their voice and likeness to two downloadable bonus levels –

July 9th, 2014 – SEGA of America, Inc., SEGA Europe, Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products today announced exclusive pre-order bonus content for Alien: Isolation, featuring the vocal talent and likenesses of key cast members of the 1979 Ridley Scott masterpiece, Alien.

“Working with the original cast has been an incredible experience,” said Alistair Hope, Creative Lead on Alien: Isolation. “It was important to us to have the key original cast members reprise their roles in order to perfectly capture the atmosphere of the movie. For some of the original cast, this is their first appearance in an Alien video game. Seeing them reprise those roles after 35 years was an unforgettable experience.”

The bonus content in the Nostromo Edition features Academy Award-nominated actress, Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Tom Skerritt (Dallas) and Yaphet Kotto (Parker) as the original crew, reunited on the ship.

In these terrifying moments, Brett and Kane are dead. Along with Ash and Lambert, it’s down to you – as Dallas, Parker or the formidable Ellen Ripley – to find a way to isolate the Alien and overcome the terror that confronts them.  

Continuing on the legacy of Ellen Ripley, players will finally be able to discover the story of her daughter, Amanda Ripley in the full length game of Alien: Isolation.

Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.

Pre-order now to ensure you don’t miss out on getting Alien: Isolation on Day 1 and the incredible chance to play as the cast of the original film, Alien ™ in our bonus content.


Exodus: Gods And Kings (2014) Trailer Now Online; Stars Christian Bale

Fox has released the trailer for Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings, which stars Christian Bale as Moses, Joel Edgerton as Rhamses and Sigourney Weaver as Tuya.

Exodus has a December 12, 2014 release also starring Aaron Paul, Indira Varma, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro and María Valverde.


From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state-of-the-art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.


Aliens 5? Sigourney Weaver Hopes So


While Ridley Scott has been moving backwards with the Prometheus movies (part 2 is in the works), Sigourney Weaver talks about the future of the franchise.

Sigourney Weaver was recently honored at the Hero Complex Film Festival where she discussed the possibility of another Alien movie.

Among other things, she mentions she didn’t want to film two Alien movies back-to-back, and she also says she wasn’t thrilled with the idea of bringing the Aliens to Earth, which is where she suspected it was heading to, and of which Joss Whedon wrote the script for.

Here’s the blurb (via Collider):

I feel after going to a couple of these Comic Cons and meeting so many fans who are so passionate about the series, passionate about Ripley — that there’s more story to tell; but I don’t know how to do that. I don’t think Alien belongs on Earth popping out of a haystack, which is where I was afraid it was going to go. I feel it should take place in the far reaches of the universe where no one in their right mind would go. There are very few filmmakers that I can think of that I would want to entrust this to. But I can think of a couple… I feel there’s a longing in certain groups of fans when I meet them for the story to be finished because we really left it up in the air and I feel a bit badly about that because I was part of that decision making process. I didn’t want to make four and five in a bundle. I think it’s hard to make these films all in a big lump. You need time to sort of let things resonate so I can imagine a situation where we could at least finish telling her story. I think that would be very satisfying at least to me — although I haven’t done anything about it; but I can understand why that could happen and I certainly know young filmmakers who are interested in doing that. So we’ll just have to see what happens.


Henry Cavill’s Gotta Wear Shades; New Image From The Cold Light Of Day

Out in theaters domestically last week was the spy thriller, The Cold Light of Day, starring new Superman, Henry Cavill, as well as Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver.

While the movie didn’t do all that well at the box office, I hear that at least Henry Cavill’s performance was top notch, so blame the script.
