Too bad Toshiro Mifune is gone. 

He was awesome in Shogun

@Barf The Mog: "This thread topic had a nice buzz going until the above comment was posted, the one right above mine."

I think that the other fellow was half-joking about casting Kojima.  I'm sure that he's a interetsing/successful guy, but these movie roles require actors with a solid resume, and some real gravitas.  In real-life you get business juggernauts like Mark Zuckerberg, but those people don't make good models for characters in action/horror movies.

Here's a breakdown of your justification for the insulting comment towards a video game tastemaker.

I'm sure that he's a interetsing/successful guy, but these movie roles require actors with a solid resume, and some real gravitas.

He's not an actor.

Kojima likes Covenant and has given the film much praise, and to Ridley his latest effort. Yes, he is very successful, in the video game industry. 

In real-life you get business juggernauts like Mark Zuckerberg, but those people don't make good models for characters in action/horror movies.

Ummm, yes they do.

Look, somebody suggested that he could play the role... that's why we're talking about him.  Being involved in the video game industry wouldn't make him at qualified for a leading or even a supporting role in a motion picture.  Actors and actresses spend many years training and climbing the ladder.  Him not being an actor doesn't give him a free pass to be a noob, but somehow show up in a film and fumble his way through it.

NOBODY wants to pay good money to see a Zuckerberg fight off aliens.  We want Arnie and Biehn. Big investors like FOX want the movie to make money, not flop at the box office.

Great topic Ripleys_Ghost. I am also very excited that the story is moving to explain more of the Yutani Corporation. You list a great set of actors above but I narrowed it down to these four:

Ken Watanabe

Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa

Takeshi Kitano

James Hong

Has anyone done the math or stumbled on intel that gives us the date that the Covenant left Earth for Origae-6?

id have the actor be middle aged, sharp looking and can carry the pat of an AI off well. id love there to be a side story that the yutani company sees the merger as an opportunity to destroy weyland from within so place an AI at the head of the negotiations and the company to infiltrate weyland. this would then lead into a nice back story for Ash and what happened later on between synthetics and humans. would also open up the possibility of another movie between alien3 and resurrection as to what happened to earth as we see its been quite decimated at the end of resurrection. I think Watanbe or Sanada would have the look on screen for the part

Of all the names that were mentioned by the author of this thread Ken Watanabe if they are making these movies serious like they used to be and not laughable like they are now. But fuck it Lopan, James Hong, because he is hilarious and he's in Blade Runner and he's f**king Lopan!

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.
