I've just read that John Hurt (77) has passed away. Fantastic actor, and a wonderful and memorable part of the Alien universe.

John Hurt as Kane. To paraphrase Peter Weyland- a bit of a game changer, that one.

Thanks for the entertainment we continue to enjoy and RIP. Say hello to Rod Serling and Leonard Nimoy for me.

It's funny the things that stick with you - the opening scene in Alien, with Kane the first to wake from cryosleep is one of the vivid memories I have of first seeing Alien when I was young. I remember it seemed so eerie and stark.

Think it's only fitting to watch it again today!

R.I.P  John Hurt

A true talented Legend who is so versatile in the kinds of roles he plays and always seems to do a very good job with every role he has ever taken, and also some amazing performances to boot.

On Stage or TV or on Film, his talents will be lost but never forgotten.

I hope that the only AWAKENING we are in for is FOX/RS wake up and learn from their mistakes.

A wonderful actor.

His performance in The Elephant Man is the most emotive I have ever seen. No one else could have portrayed John Merrick so movingly!

RIP Sir John...you will never be forgotten...

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
