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.

Treat yourself to some Alien Merchandise!

Thanks, it's always interesting to see what could have been.


PraetorianMember4207 XPSep-25-2022 8:35 AM

Yes, I love rejected concepts

Seems to be more like some of the Concept works for the New Born before we got the Abomination we ENDED up with in Alien R it would be Interesting to see WHAT the Monsters of the Paglen/Green Drafts would have been like.

Maybe these are some of them?

Hi BigDave :D 
H.R Giger’s Alien is so iconic and ahead of its time it’s hard to match. The alien queen design was a very successful visual attempt at creating something new although clearly in the same vein, obviously linked to the xenos by merely looking at it.
The Newborn was at least an effort at making something fresh and different which was welcomed and maybe needed at that point. Some people like it, others dislike it. I personally love it, in part because of the incredible animatronics ADI created for it.
The final version of the Neos look very simple and toned down compared to these artworks and the earlier Ultramorph concept but I guess it was the demand of Ridley given the simplistic aesthetic nature of his other recent works (android suits and pods in Raised by Wolves for example)

That would explain alot Neomorph

Yeah Xenotaris, maybe you knew this already but Ridley himself also has a long art background and I believe he said in an older interview that he graduated from a 7 year (!) art school, probably very prestigious. He doesn’t overdo things many times, if not most of the time. For instance, look at the solar sails on the Covenant spaceship, shaped like a big square, plain and simple yet so effective in terms of credibility. The designs in Ridley’s films (whether he’s responsible for the art direction or not) also works great in conjunction with his long-time working partner; cinematographer Dariusz Wolksi, hence all the stunningly beautiful shots.

"Some people like it, others dislike it"

Yeah for me i was looking at some of the other Concepts for the New Born, i think the Actual Animatronics etc were Great i was just NOT a Fan of the Face or its Personality if you would it came across a bit Comical!

If you Watch this VIDEO of some of the Concepts. Then the Design at 2:30 is something i would have Preferred. We can see from this Video that some of the Designs had Influenced the Deacon and Neomorphs from the Prequels.


PraetorianMember4207 XPOct-10-2022 3:58 PM

Yeah the NewBorn freaked me out when I first saw it, I thought the regular xenomorphs looked alot better than that abomination
