The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

If my eyes are not deceiving me, the Alien is taking out the camera's so it can not be tracked by Walter. Which shows it's intelligence,

Incredible.Soo many practical effects and animatronics used in this film.

For some reason this shot of the xeno and how it moves keeps reminding me of the unused Hunter creature from penumbra tech demo from 2006

Still, can't wait to see this.

Thanks for sharing.

Yepp, think you're right. Walter seems mighty startled and baffled.

First the cameras, then the power.
