For those who may not be aware, Scified began as a Prometheus movie fansite, which quickly became one of the top spots on the net to discuss all things Alien. You could say, Scified was built by Alien fans and has since expanded to cover other sci-fi movie franchises. But our roots will always be grounded deeply in the Alien mythology and because of this, we can't wait to get celebrating Alien Day!

April 26th, 4/26, a homage to LV-426, the planet where this journey began and where it will undoubtedly end. Many outlets and vendors are selling and giving away awesome Alien goodies and we've joined their initiative to give fans more of what they love - Alien!

About Alien: Covenant 2 / Alien Awakening

The state of the Alien: Covenant sequel continues to remain uncertain. Ridley Scott has mentioned previously that they have a story already in place and know exactly where the sequel to Covenant will go, however the recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox film properties by Disney have potentially put the rumored-to-be-titled Alien: Awakening on hold for the time being. As new details arise concerning Alien: Covenant 2 we will be your premiere source and you can find information on the Covenant sequel by visiting the About Alien: Awakening page here.

Stay up to date with the latest news and updates on the Alien: Covenant movie sequel, potentially titled Alien: Awakening by liking us on Facebook and by following us on Twitter and Instagram! You can also subscribe your email to our Alien: Covenant blog for instant notifications of when new posts are made!

Arthur Dallas, Ellen Ripley, Joan Lambert, Samuel Brett, Gilbert Kane, Ash, Dennis Parker, Jonesy, and the alien.

Aliens:

Ellen Ripley, Dwayne Hicks, Carter J. Burke, Bishop, Rebecca "Newt" Jorden, Hudson, Gorman, Vasquez, Apone, Frost, Crowe, Wierzbowski, Drake, Spunkmeyer, Ferro, Dietrich, the aliens, the alien Queen, and Jonesy.

Favourite scene: The getaway from alien. Tension ramped up to the max. Terrifying. With the best part being Parker and Lambert's death. Nightmare inducing, especially with all the theories of Lambert's demise.

Favourite quote: "You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? The perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility. I admire its purity, a survivor. Unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality."-Ash from aliens, the perfect way to describe the dire situation the crew are in whilst explaining the near indestructible nature of the alien. Gives me chills!

Favorite scene: The pan out when you get a look at the grandeur of the room that the space jockey body is in. It will always be an image in my mind that sells the whole movie. Epic and thought-provoking

Favorite scene: The Ripley's escape in Alien when the autodestruction was activated, with mother's countdown ! 

Favorite quote: I'm french so i don't know any quotes in english, except the 'Get away from her, you bitch!", but not my favorite. I love in Aliens when they decide to launch a nuclear warhead, Ripley and Hicks : "Comme ça, on sera sûr du résultat" which might be in english "Like that, we shall be sure of the result" (not sure). :D

Happy Alien Day!

ALIEN:

Ellen Ripley, Arthur Dallas, Joan Lambert, Samuel Brett, Gilbert Kane, Ash, Dennis Parker, Jonesy, The 8th Passenger (Face Hugger, Chestburster, and Big Chap Alien), and Dead Space Jockey (Engineer).

Aliens:

Ellen Ripley, Bishop, Dwayne Hicks, Rebecca "Newt" Jorden, Carter J. Burke, Hudson, Gorman, Vasquez, Apone, Frost, Crowe, Wierzbowski, Drake, Spunkmeyer, Ferro, Dietrich, the face huggers, chestbursters, aliens, the alien Queen, and Jonesy. (Special mention for doctors in dream sequence and lawyers in company hearing.)

Favorite scene: Discovering the inside of the derelict space craft. My first exposure to Giger's art come to life. Still creepy as hell, yet beautiful.

Favorite quote: "You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? The perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility. I admire its purity, a survivor. Unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality."-Ash. Quote from ALIEN. Not only is this the perfect explanation of the Alien, but a perfect quote for the movie. Could very well be a long tagline for the poster (Especially the last sentence).

ALIEN characters: Ripley, Dallas, Kane, Ash, Lambert, Parker, Brett, Jonesy, the Xenomorph, the Engineer (and Mother, I guess).

ALIENS characters: Ripley, Hicks, Newt, Bishop, Hudson, Vasquez, Burke, Gorman, Apone, Drake, Frost, Ferro, Spunkmeyer, the Alien Queen, Jonesy (plus cannon fodder Dietrich, Crowe, Wierzbowski; and of course Timmy, Russ, Anne, and the glorious Al Simpson, who were given much more time in River of Pain!)

Favorite scene (ALIENS): Ripley and the Queen in the hive, making a mutual understanding, and the Queen for the first time demonstrating and establishing for the audience the hive-mind that drives the entire species, before Ripley righteously incinerates the hive. Such a significant and visually stunning scene, more or less alone setting up the foundation for the entire following book-series!

Favorite quote: At the risk of being unoriginal, it's got to be "Get away from her, you BITCH!" It still sends chills down my spine every time!
