Following the exciting unearthing of Alien 5 concept art earlier today by Geoffrey Thoorens comes another, even more exciting discovery! While browsing Thoorens' official website, another piece has been discovered suggesting Neill Blompkamp's Alien 5 might have featured a Hive War!

The following official concept art shows two Alien Queens, one under fire by either Weyland-Yutani security detail or the film's Mercenaries. Never have there been 2 Queens that coexisted in the same Hive, proto-Queens, known as Praetorians would act as royal guards to the Queen and could molt into a Queen if the Queen was ever killed. However, never would two Queens share the same Hive. Thus we can safely assume in Blompkamp's Alien 5, we would have seen two competing Alien Hives attack one another.... Or....

... We speculate that Weyland-Yutani might have been trying to weaponize and control the Xenomorphs. We knew this was their goal since their discovery of LV-426 (and prior) and so perhaps in Alien 5 we would have seen Weyland-Yutani pit a Human-controlled group of Xenomorphs against a natural Xenomorph Hive to test to see how they could be used for combat as well as a means of eradicating other Xenomorph Hives on prospective planets.

UPDATE: After further examining the photo, it appears the second Queen is actually Ripley (we assume) in a Xenomorph Praetorian suit! Take a look:

What do YOU think of this thrilling new concept art and the prospect of a Hive Battle!? Let us know in the comments!

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.

The working title for Alien 5 being Red Harvest makes more sense now... Red Harvest likely a callback to the Aliens Genocide comic... the RED Xenomorphs were a competing breed. RED = Enemy Xenomorphs. Harvest = Weyland-Yutani bred Alien Hive. That's my guess.

I don't know.... I'm getting a very AVP vibe with this concept art.

AVA ( Aliens Versus Aliens ) a new series ?

 

Dressing up as a Xeno Queen just seems so bizarre? 

Words fail me.....

That'd be cool because it'd be similar to insect colonies and how they have wars

like this one time i saw a little garden ant fight this HUGE red ant

wanna know who won?

Indeed Chris we can assume that Ripley has managed to GET INTO a Xenomorph Queen Suit!! i know *FACEPALM

Other Concept we saw prior had showed us a Ripley in like a Space Jockey/Xenomorph Hybrid Suit.

Regarding RED HARVEST its HARD to say as to HOW MANY versions of ALIEN V there was.

Red Harvest gave us some RED like Xenomorph related Monsters, it also showed VARIOUS Experiments on Xenomorph Related Organisms who are FUSED with Human Tech and we even see a Xenomorph Related Organism thats Connected to the PILOT CHAIR of a Engineer Ship.

So it seems the PLOT was about a Human Company who OBTAINED the Derelict (or other Engineer Ship) they OBTAIN a QUEEN and likely Eggs from her to then Begin Various Experiments on the Xenomorph and TRYING to Obtain Traits from them for Bio-Weapons Advancements but also TRYING to find a way to CONTROL them.

We can see THAT does NOT go to Plan.

I think the PLOT has some Interesting ideas but also some SILLY ONES and so its VERY like Comic Book and i also DONT think you have to BRING BACK THE GANG to make another Movie and so it would have been a PASS from me.

I Applaud the Effort by the Concept Artist though.

Bonkers. Ripley dressing up in a powered metal exoskeleton (Aliens) is fine. But a human does not have the muscle power of a Xenomorph, so it's just silly to dress up as one. The whole idea of a Xenomorph is that it is a fearsome powerful predator that can punch its way through metal and run into machine-gun fire without a care in the world. A human dressed up as a Xenomorph is just plain daft, and robs the beast of its might.

We dodged a bullet there, I think.

Maybe she's playing a surrogate mother for some of the brood? But why?

I  think the PLOT has some Potential as in the ALIEN Franchise (Theatrically) the Company has TRIED to Obtain a Specimen and they was ONLY successful in ALIEN Resurrection but NO Soon as they had Managed to Obtain some Eggs from the Queen and managed to get from them the ADULT XENOMORPHS then things went to POT.

You would Question to WHAT would they do with those Xenomorphs had they Managed to Contain them?  Surely they would LOOK beyond just using Eggs, Face Huggers as a Bio-Weapon?

So Genetic Study, Experiments would seem Logical and IF these Organisms have a HIVE MIND/TELEPATHY then i Guess you could look at ways to TAP INTO that and CONTROL THEM?

But you would NOT need to have Ripley etc back!

As FAR as the Queen Suit... this is even WORSE a IDEA than the PRED-KILLER SUIT from The Predator!

That picture looks like something out of a Transformers-movie, in other words stupid. Can't they just stop it and realize that Ripley has had her time? Move on with something else instead of throwing Ripley and her cousins and what ever into other things, even having Amanda Ripley in it feels like a parody. As much as I am tired of David and the android-thing Ripley feels more played out. Try again
