Alien 3 is probably one of the most confusing and most disliked films inside the Alien saga. However, they did create a couple of new concepts inside the Alien mythos that are liked by fans. One specifically is the dog aliens and you can now have the ability to display one in your house. Prime […]
If you’ve ever wondered what William Gibson’s unproduced script for Alien 3 could have been, you’re in luck. Dark Horse announced back in 2018 that they were creating a comic book mini-series based on Gibson’s unused script, which had it’s 5th and final issue release in March of 2019. Turns out, that wasn’t the END- […]
We’re already expecting a comic book based on William Gibson‘s original screenplay for Alien 3, adapted by writer/artist Johnnie Christmas and colorist Tamra Bonvillain. At the Diamond Retailer Lunch at San Diego Comic-Con, we didn’t learn much more than that… But we did get our first look inside the comic, showing a glimpse of what might have been… perhaps […]
Dark Horse has announced plans to publish a comic book adaptation of William Gibson‘s original, unproduced Alien 3 script by writer/artist Johnnie Christmas and colorist Tamra Bonvillain. The comic is part of the 20th Century Fox Uncovered program, which also saw Rod Serling‘s original Planet of the Apes script adapted at BOOM!. Hey, we hear […]
Alien collectibles have gotten a kick in the butt as of late, thanks to NECA and especially Super7. Super7 models their stuff after the Kenner figures of old, so they automatically make me want to purchase them. But the attention to detail in the sculpting is where they really shine. Their various 18-inch Xenomorphs are […]
On Alien Day last month, I was on the hunt for cool Alien collectibles, and stumbled upon these bad boys on the Super7 Store page. The Alien ReAction figures are awesome throwbacks to the 3.75 inch toys of old, and I’ve always loved the sculpts on these, so I ordered five of them and waited […]
I am seeing Alien: Covenant tonight, and I could not be more excited. Next to Star Wars, it is my favorite franchise, and let’s face it: Ellen Ripley is the all-time greatest hero of a sci-fi film, and to me one of the best characters ever created period. I can’t get enough Ripley stuff, from […]
NECA and their line of figures based on video game appearances are a huge hit with collectors, as figures like Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kruger, Leatherface, Predator, and more have found a spot on collectors shelf’s. Last year’s SDCC exclusive TMNT figure box sets were the hottest item of the convention as well. The best part of […]
New from CoolProps is a life-size version of the Xenomorph head from Alien. Based on H.R. Giger’s familiar design, the iconic head is stunning to look at, the translucent dome right down to the sculpting of the jaws. Just wow. Here is description from the Sideshow Collectibles product page: Dedicated to H.R. Giger— CoolProps are […]
Happy Alien Day everyone! How are you celebrating? I will be attending a screening of Alien tonight, and as anticipation is reaching a fever pitch for Alien: Covenant on May 19, Fox and many other partners have announced quite a few Alien related products today as part of the festivities. From new Funko products to […]
Though today has been agreed upon as a time to celebrate Alien and its action-packed sequel Aliens, I can’t help but think of the third installment in 20th Century Fox‘s sci-fi horror franchise. The film went through many permutations. At one time, Sigourney Weaver was definitely out and several writers, including William Gibson, were drafted […]
Many if you may have already read William Gibson's Alien 3 screenplay somewhere throughout the years, but if you never did, here's another chance.
If there's anybody out there who doesn't have this yet...
We’re getting closer and closer to the release of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus every day, and if you still need to do some revision with the other films in the Alien series, you might want to take advantage of this dipped price. At the moment, the Alien Anthology on Blu-ray is
There were several unused ideas for Alien 3, and I expect many of them would have served us better than the half-hearted compromise we ended up with. One of the unfilmed screenplays was written by William Gibson, the accidental futurist and sci-fi novellist who changed the sci-fi scene radically in the early 80s with his […]
Currently on sale at just $14.99 a piece are the individual Blu-ray releases of Alien, Aliens, Alienses, Alien 3, and Alien Resurrection. Or, as I call them, The Good, The Good, The Bad and The One With The Ugly Newborn Thing (But Which I Seem To Like More Than Just About Anybody Else I’ve Ever […]
Fox have not officially announced them yet, but it looks like individual Blu-ray releases for the Alien series* are on the way. I’d imagine that each release will be exactly the same as the disc packaged in the Anthology set, but that the two extra discs of amazing supplements you get in the full box […]
Officially, there’s more than 60 hours of special features on the Alien Anthology set. I didn’t count the minutes myself, but I know that when I was sitting down to watch these discs, my weekend just slipped away from me and before I even stopped to think properly about what was happening, a couple of […]
It’s a testament to the overall quality of the Alien Anthology box set that it survives the monstrous disappointment of Alien 3 in just the way a heavyweight boxer survives a stubbed toe. Indeed, I can’t imagine I’ll ever watch this film again in either it’s theatrical or extended cut and I might as well […]
Here’s a teaser, a longer trailer and a novelty packaging-focused commercial for the Alien Anthology Blu-ray sets. Sold, sold and sold. That last one comes from Dread Central. I wrote a previous story, breaking down what will be on each of the six discs. I wrote it in my own saliva.
