many of you have heard by now that the alien covenant sequel has bean canceled. the next alien movie will probably be made under disneys controll asuming that they make one at all. 

This brings me to the quiestion, what do you think will happen next? 

right now, there seems to be only 3 options for the franchise.

1: it will get put on ice and we wont see another alien film for 10-15 years.

2: disney will alow ridley scott to continue with his prequels.

3: disney will reboot it with a new director and storyline. (alien 5)

what do you think is the most likey situation in your opinion? let me know in the comments.

I personally think they will give RS one more movie to tie things up, wait for about 5 years and than reboot.

I hope for option 2 only with just one more movie tying into Alien. After that, they can do whatever they want. I was 11 when Alien was released- I'm getting too old for this s"it.

Disney should put the franchise completely to bed; Alien Covenant mustn't have a sequel, because it was too perfect


ChestbursterMember902 XPDec-27-2017 6:56 AM


How can something be too perfect anyhow? is it something out of this world communicated from the 7th dimension?


FacehuggerMember109 XPDec-27-2017 8:47 AM

It's the same as when somebody says that a movie is really bad; perfection is just the opposite


TrilobiteMember8212 XPDec-27-2017 10:51 AM

It was too perfect. My PS3 refused to eject it and automatically restarted the movie so it could have the honor of playing it again. I had to un plug the player to stop the perfection.


FacehuggerMember109 XPDec-27-2017 11:07 AM

Does the PS3 refuse to play bad movies?


ChestbursterMember902 XPDec-27-2017 11:11 AM


David installed itself into the ps3 now?


TrilobiteMember8212 XPDec-27-2017 11:47 AM

It was AC. The PS3 wanted to replay it. You decide.


FacehuggerMember109 XPDec-27-2017 12:11 PM

That must mean that the PS3 doesn't play Aliens, Prometheus or Alien Resurrection


ChestbursterMember902 XPDec-27-2017 12:23 PM


Neither Alien nor Alien 3... only the Perfect Blu-ray.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPDec-27-2017 12:42 PM

trokanmariel The PS3 plays the entire Anthology and spat out Prometheus a couple times at first (but I threatened it with AVPR and it came around), but they all play just fine. But it wanted to replay the pristine AC again by itself. I had to unplug it since I felt unworthy to behold utter perfection twice in the same night.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPDec-27-2017 12:42 PM

twitchy double post


ChestbursterMember528 XPDec-27-2017 9:32 PM

There's a 4th option, they continue at a different point/time within the existing lore. Unless that is considered a reboot.

Eine Theorie die nicht auf Etwas solidem basiert ist für gewöhnlich nur Geschwätz.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPDec-27-2017 10:04 PM

A reboot before connecting to the original Alien (which was the original intent) is weak, lazy and a slap in the face to loyal fans who have gone the distance imo.


PraetorianModerator2414 XPDec-27-2017 10:33 PM

dk threatening things with a bout of AVPR. Clever!

righto thats it, we're all going to sit down and watching AVPR until a sequel is made. I hope you're happy Fox/Disney!


NeomorphMember1823 XPDec-27-2017 10:38 PM

id put it on hold and take stock of the situation. AC dropped the story ark/ expanded universe ball big time and needs to regroup. if this means another year to wait id rather wait and they got it right. but will Disney push the boat out and give us a movie above pg13?

lol how can AC be classed as too perfect????????????????????


PraetorianModerator2414 XPDec-27-2017 10:40 PM

Agreed ali81. I enjoyed Covenant but it was far from perfect. Like an Adam and Eve rip-off gone wrong.


NeomorphMember1823 XPDec-27-2017 11:15 PM

I see the point of couples on the colonisation mission but that just makes sense. Prometheus was heavily faith and origins toned but I didn't get any of that from AC.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPDec-28-2017 12:39 AM

Sorry. My sarcasm and trolling skills are evidently weak. My posts of utter AC perfection were total BS. I was hoping some would see that and join the lampoon lol! I like AC but it (and Prometheus) is woefully bad compared to the Quadrilogy.


NeomorphMember1823 XPDec-28-2017 1:10 AM

dk, lol no my friend they wernt lost on me hahaha


DeaconMember10416 XPDec-28-2017 2:07 AM

Well this is the BIG QUESTION

A lot depends on Disney, and do they pick up the Franchise or do they License it out to someone else?

Disney are in the Market to look at what Makes $$$$ and what can lead to Merchandise and Toys!

This Sadly leans more to a Blomkamp Alien 5 Scenario, Disney will not make a Alien movie unless they feel it will make back 2-3X its Budget, they may Sadly not wish to Risk Investing $100-150M never mind more and so if they did make a Movie we would either be left withe TWO options.

A) A lower $50-75M Budget AC sequel attempt.

B) A similar Budget to AC or maybe a bit more HOWEVER bring in Xenos and Ripley again.

A big Question is those at Disney who make such decisions, what Care do they have for the Franchise, do they care for the first TWO movies? Do they care for the last TWO movies and do they care for the TWO Prequels?  

Does Respect for the Franchise mean more than making Money? 

So who knows... we cant rule out a REBOOT but i hope they remain Respectful and instead go for a ALIEN movie set in the Universe that does not affect the Prequels or Original Franchise... and so i think they could potentially bring about a movie where we get a new Cast of Characters, and introduce us to another Place where Xenomorph Eggs are discovered/obtained or Re-Engineered.

The other option would be if they feel that the XENOMORPH is simply not enough, and feel they have to introduce Ripley into it.... then who knows what route they would take.  a Alien Resurrection Sequel? or a Blomkamp Style Re-con of Alien 3?

I fear they may not be interested in the Prequels, unless they RE-BOOT them... simply because of the way the Prequels have Split the Franchise and Disappointments in fans minds with both.

Many from my work place found Covenant already a reboot. So why reboot again?


TrilobiteMember8212 XPDec-28-2017 2:24 AM

BigDave How about a Disney pitch like this: 

Imagine a movie trailer that suggests a very vague sequence of the SJ supervising cargo loading into an are we figure is the Jugernaut. Something along those lines without showing too much. Next, a voice or words would suggest a connection to an origin. 




NeomorphMember1680 XPDec-28-2017 3:31 AM

Disney is in it for the money and not the art so to speak but so was probably Fox if you think about it. I think that since they are into familiar things I guess that we might get an Alien 5.

Maybe they will make Scott finish the prequels with one other movie and then I guess that it is a wrap. I am not very interested in the direction that he is taking this so I will probably not miss it. Perhaps they can do a spin-off movie, I am not very interested in that but I would rather have a movie like that than another movie about David.

“I had to un plug the player to stop the perfection.”

Going back and reading this really had me laughing. I am glad that I wasn't drinking coffee or anything, the table would probably have been covered in coffee.

Ripley is not necessary, give me well-written and sympathetic human characters and a lot of it is saved. Prometheus could have been a lot better if this would have worked but it didn't.

“I fear they may not be interested in the Prequels, unless they RE-BOOT them... simply because of the way the Prequels have Split the Franchise and Disappointments in fans minds with both.”

No big loss, it is only about David anyways.
