A good example to follow for the Weyland Yutani corporate angle

A good example to follow for the Weyland Yutani corporate angle

It's been discussed recently that going more into the inner workings of Weyland Yutani wouldn't be a bad idea to explore more.Outland is a perfect example.It's Alien comparisons are well known.

I actually wouldn't mind an Alien film that focused on Weyland Yutani without any xenomorph at all.Give OutLand a look if you haven't already.

LOL! I think I was the one who made that suggestion. I have heard of Outland but never watched it.

Indeed you were lol.I just got around to seeing it last year after reading about it on a sci fi list.Picked it up for a buck at a thrift store.It has that Alien look and feel,Jerry Goldsmith composed.The corporate corruption feels like Weyland Yutani.

Looks very Alien and with Connery to boot! I will have to see this!

I highly recommend it.It's a semi remake of the western high noon.It's Peter Hyam who also directed Capricorn One(which i haven't seen)And 2010 The year we make contact (which i ironically bought around the same time as Outland)

Outland is a gem at least in my opinion.

Never seen it.... will have to look into it....  Certainly Interesting as indeed any kind of Future where we explore Space, set up a Mining Colony.... as with folks working long way from home on Earth.. is Boredom and Being alone with not much to do!      Take the Outpost 31 Team from The Thing! you would need things to occupy yourself...    and so thats very interesting with the OUTLAND movie in that they have set up some Entertainment to allow the workers who work hard, to be able to play hard and unwind.

Regarding the OT!

Indeed i had discussed before the Franchise has more to it than Ripley and Queens.... but we would face the similar Problem in exploring a Weyland-Yutani movie that does-not have Xenomorphs or anything related...

That similar Problem... would be they cant use the ALIEN prefix because certain fans would EXPECT to have Xenomorphs and Queens and Marines.... even if there was NO Alien Prefix.... and it had Weyland-Yutani in the Title... then again the Fanboys would be wanting to know where the Colonial Marines are at!

For example you could have a movie called..


Make it about the Weyland-Yutani company after Aliens and explore what leads to the Company being NO-MORE! and have it having little or nothing to do with the Xenomorph.

Problem is would many people know what Dissolution is about as in about the Corrupt Company in the Alien Franchise?    And would the Plot/Trailers alone get the Average JOE in to watch such a Movie?   This is where they then have to Market it more Heavy so people KNOW its about the company in the ALIEN Franchise or even drop in the Alien Prefix.... which in either case  Fans would expect there to then be Xenomorphs and Marines.

When Prometheus was being released... if you asked say a Random Million People, how many would have known it was a Alien Franchise connected movie?   Then on the Flip-side those who knew it was connected either could not see what the connections were, or was disappointed it was not a Alieny Movie.

So while there is scope to expand other Stories set within the Universe of the Franchise...  a lot would still expect some Xenomorph connection. or Ripley etc.

That's a good movie. I totally missed it growing up, but my wife found it by chance on Netflix a few years ago.

I found by going through some western remake list.As soon as I read about it it went to the top of my must see sci fi list.Well worth the search.

A great portion of Outland looks like it was filmed in the Nostromo set. I highly recommend this film...loved it.
