Does anyone think these movies might merge somehow? It seems a great way to go since the Alien franchise seems painted in a corner in some ways and BR really hasn't gone anywhere until now.

The ADF Origin novel feels suspiciously Blade Runneresque if that is anything to go by.....

I am not even half-way through the prequel novel and it is, like, reading something out of Balderunner. The novel is insteresting, but I honestly don't like the bladerunner feel! I am not a supporter (per say) of the franchises melting together. The Alien canon has been damn fluid for, like, ever! Especially recently. Now, if a Bladerunner/Alien merger occurs, we are in for another shift in mythology and continuity. Well, more the continuity part.

I would like to know if THE WALLACE CORP. is mentioned in the novel.

I hope not ... People are saying the new blade runner is amazing and with alien stuff going down the toilet definitely best to keep them apart. I wonder if Ridley is gutted the new one is so good.... Well at least to the first few reviewers...

Well, the Predator movies and Firefly are canon, as is RoboCop, and Terminator, and The DCEU and Judge Dredd, so why not include Blade Runner as well.

Why not have Santa Claus Vs a giant poo while we are at it... Certain things go together and if it's done well great but some things don't and currently alien stuff is way off the mark! Now if Denis Villeneuve is directing possibly theres hope... Arrival was brilliant!

Except that Santa is dead- tomb was recently found in Turkey. The impact would be lesser with that knowledge.

My friend told me Blade Runner 2049 reminds him of Prometheus, saying it looks like a prequel of Prometheus.

Saw Blade Runner 2049. Didn't really seem like they connected at all to the Alien universe.

 

and good for that.

Santa's dead?! My mummy said he was real... Oh man gonna be different this year....

Yes I have seen the new blade runner and it's quiet good... Doesn't have the extra specialness of the first one but still well done and in the same style just slightly updated. Looks like it's ready for sequels as well...
