The Next Alien Theatrical Movie has to be So So at best3,171 Views5 RepliesAdd A Reply
The next movie has to suck enough to give us something to complain about. A perfect movie would break tradition- Alien has plenty to complain about regardless how great it is.
Please do not give us a perfect movie- we will not know how to handle it or know what to do with ourselves!
I think thats a Great Point.... your not gonna get a Movie that pleases EVERYONE..
The Closest they would have gone would had been in Hindsight if Prometheus offered more Clues, a bit of Xeno-like Monster Action and allowed the Door to Alien to be somewhat closed... Then allow Prometheus 2 to go off a different Tangent.
Thats in Hindsight!
But Prometheus was the PERFECT Anchor for the Franchise and HOW to expand it.
What should have been done was TWO Sequels to Prometheus.
1) A Sequel to where David and Dr Shaw went that would not have to cover Xenomorphs or link to LV-426 (but could hint to the LV-223 Experiments or maybe not). If say the beings discovered are none the wiser to LV-223.
2) A Mission to LV-223 that would allow for a more Alieny Movie offering more clues to the Xenomorph and what was going on LV-223 with maybe clues to WHY.
The Option 2 should have been brought out First!
Then Option 1 next and allowed RS to have Freedom to go off and do what ever he wanted.
After BOTH are out... Fox could Gauge would BOTH Warrant Sequels, would only Option 1 or 2 Warrant Sequels, or was both Prequel Routes a DUD and just go back to the ALIEN Franchise.
Then this could have been the Potential Expanded Avenues.
When working on my Prometheus 2 in 2012/2013 it was more a None Alieny/Engineer Sequel (had a bit) but would set up a Sequel that was to LV-223 and be very ALIENY...
Then there would have been another Movie that would have been where David and Dr Shaw end up that would be not so ALIENY.
My Prometheus 2... Loosely covered Dr Shaw and David but not much time on them, (few Flashbacks Dreams) only as far as to SET-UP the TWO Sequels. It mainly Focused on what becomes of the Company after the Disappearance of LV-223, sets seeds for the Merger and then a Mission to LV-223 (A Direct Sequel more Alieny more clues to ALIEN and NO Dr Shaw/David or Philosophy)
While then it would have been another Sequel (to Prometheus) that goes on a different Tangent to were David and Shaw go.. which is VERY FAR and set Hundred or 50 years after Prometheus. And goes and does its own thing... with not much connection to Alieny things as far as LV-223.
But i struggled with how to do that last Part Justice so i abandoned it..
Sorry for going OFF Topic... my point being that Prometheus should have had a more ALIENY Fans Pleasing LV-223 Sequel and then a Prometheus Fans Pleasing off to Paradise (or other place) different Tangent.
But now its a bit of a MESS!
Edit: Here is the Idea i had 3-4 years ago to Expand Franchise. (ideas mentioned prior are the Starting Points)

A perfect film would be relative anyway. No matter what they create next, some of the fan base will love it and some will hate it. Sadly it's inevitable.
Chris Yes, I was being tongue in cheek lol! If there is a movie in the works, they should just go for it. There will always be lovers and haters..........but even the haters will watch and that counts as $ales!
No worries dk, another movie would surely suck enough to satisfy our complaining tendencies! ;)
