Neill Blomkamp
Another day, another batch of information from director Neill Blomkamp about his upcoming Alien project. Previously, we learned that the new film would take place between Ridley Scott’s Alien and its sequel, Aliens, and although it’s avoiding Alien 3 and Resurrection, it’s not going to mess with the canon established in those films…somehow. Blomkamp’s new project also won’t interfere with Prometheus 2, though the director reveals that he did have to make some changes to keep the films from overlapping.

‘Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck’ Review: Documentary Exposes a Man Who Resented Exposure

by Britt Hayes 7 days ago
