Ridley Scott is a tough critic in Hollywood - especially when it involves his own properties. Recently the Alien / Blade Runner filmmaker was given the opportunity to review Fede Alvarez's Alien: Romulus - of which he is a producer of - and thankfully - he thought it was great!

During the DGA Latino Summit, filmmakers Guillermo del Toro and Fede Alvarez discuss Fede's latest work - Alien - at the 18:30 mark in the video below, he explains:

I finished the Director’s Cut a week ago and had to go through the incredible tense process of obviously sending to Ridley. I wanted him to see it before anybody. And everyone gave me the head’s up that Ridley is really tough. He’s really tough, particularly if it has something to do with his movies. He was really tough on Blade Runner, which I thought was a masterpiece, and he had issues with it because it’s really hard for him because it’s his work.


So I was like “there’s no way I win this one.” Even if he didn’t ask for it, I was gonna go there and sit at a table and look at him and get it. Even if he was gonna say “you destroyed my legacy,” I wanted to be in front of him and see him in the eye. I didn’t want to get an email where it says “Ridley says…”

I was like I wanna see him, if you’ll see me, I want to talk to him right after. I drove there. I see his executives, which couldn’t see it with him, because he wanted to watch it on his own. Because it was Alien. It was very important to him. He didn’t want to have anybody in the room. That makes me even more terrified while I’m waiting.

And then he walks into the room and he did say “Fede, what can I say? It’s fucking great.” For me it was like…ahhh…My family knows it was one of the best moments of my life to have a master like him, which I admired so much, to even watch a movie I made but particularly something like this…and talk to me for an hour about what he liked about it.

Alien: Romulus will arrive in theaters August 16th, 2024! Expect more news and updates to arrive as we enter the new year!

Hopefully we'll get some quality Alien-stuff, it has been too long (1992).
