Alien in the UK

According to Launching Movies the Director's Cut of Alien will be getting a release in the UK this October 24.

AvP - Alien design

According to Dark Horizons a rumour is circulating that the design of the Aliens in the new film will be more like the ridge headed creatures of the second film, than their smooth headed brethren of the other three flicks.

Batman : Dead End

Eh? This is AvP! Why do we care about the Dark Knight? Because he's getting down and dirty with an Alien and a Predator, that's why! Download the new fan film Batman : Dead End from Montauk Films and Level 7. I've seen a lot of fan films, and what this lacks in plot it more than makes up for in brilliant production values. Highly recommended!! (NOTE: It's a 48MB Quicktime download - but still worth the effort!)

BerneyBoy's Fireworks

Little bit of fun from BerneyBoy over at PlanetQuake. A Predator and his pet facehugger enjoying some fireworks after a hard days hunt. Check it out! Or another game perhaps?

Alien Query

Hi all, Corpral Hicks here. OK all, I got an e-mail from a Paul Mills asking me questions about what we like about the Alien movies and so forth. I am pasting the content of the e-mail he sent bellow and I would anyone to send an e-mail to Paul Mills with your answers. The questions: I can manage with the research, but need to also survey people on the question of who their pick is, of the best alien ever and their (serious, or even humorous) reason/s why (in a maximum of about 35

AvP Gold Sourcecode

Just learned from AvP News that sourcecode for AvP Gold has been posted online at Sebultura's website with some tutorials for modders/ coders. (Note: I was unable to download any code when I just tried, so perhaps there's some bandwidth issues. Perhaps check back later if you have no luck.) Discuss in Alien Master's forum thread.

Weaver's next...

Sadly not another Alien flick, but of interest to genre fans. "M.Night Shyamalan’s new film “The Woods” is sounding better and better everytime the trades publish an update. Hot on the heels of William Hurt joining the cast, comes news that Ellen Ripley herself, Sigourney Weaver, has signed for a role. Set in 1897, the film revolves around a close-knit community that lives with the frightening knowledge that a mythical race of creatures resides in the woods around them. Shyamalan, mastermind behind “Signs”, “The Sixth Sense” and “Unbreakbale” also wrote the script." Sourced from Moviehole.

Predator 3

With stories abounding about Aliens vs. Predator and a potential Alien 5, this was bound to come up sooner or later... "Hollywood Insiders have let loose more cafe talk that Robert Rodriguez is still discussing this project, pushing his own screenplay a little further. His project is said to take place on board a 17th century ship, which the Predator making a visit to its crew. The other script is another golden oldie, The Zoo, which is meant to include Arnold's character Dutch and Danny Glover's from the underated sequel. The two men are captured and taken back to the Predator's home planet, as trophies." From Z Review via Dark Horizons.

Cameron and Alien V

Thanks to Dark Horizons for this schnippet about James Cameron, T3 and Alien 5. "James Cameron recently talked with BBC1 and revealed he's very happy with how Terminator 3 ended up: "In one word : Great. There was a small part of me that hoped it wasn't good - but another part of me hope'd it succeeded. And it did. And I'm so glad it did. Jonathon's made a great movie. Arnold's in great form. I really like what he's done with it". If he had done it, would he have handled it differently: "Yes. That's only natural. I mightn't have structrued it the same, nor may I have ended it the same way - but coming in where he has, such a hard thing to do, and I give Jonathan points for it". This isn't a man whose going to whitewash his opinion either, take for example his reaction to "Alien 3" - "Hated it. Simple as that. I hated what they did.... I couldn't stand Alien 3 - how they could just go in there and kill off all these great characters we introduced in aliens, and the correlation between mother and daughter. It stunk, but hopefully I'll get a chance to rectify all that". You mean the talk about him being tied to "Alien 5" is true? "To an extent. yes. We're looking at doing another one. Something similiar to what we did with Aliens. A bunch of great characters, and of course Sigourney. I've even discussed the possibility of putting him [Arnold Schwarzenegger] into the Alien movie". Thanks to 'Ryan'." This seems to be markedly different from some earlier quotes from Cameron indicating Weaver wasn't a given for future Alien films - but, if Cameron's claims have substance, is nonetheless encouraging news if you the current rumours regarding the storyline of Paul Anderson's Aliens vs. Predator have left you a bit cold.

Double X Chapter 5: The B&M Campaign

Endeavoring To Achieve Greatness: Chapter 1

Ok, the next chapter of Endeavoring to Achieve Greatness is up on GS, its called the Birth of Pre'len-ja. Elaborates a bit more on the life style of Mar'kel-ja and Kaht'ay, and of course the birthing of their young daughter. Enjoy it! Mar. Mar got to his feet and walked around to his mother, at the foot of the sleeping mattress, a small bundle of blankets was passed from his father to himself. Mar looked down into the face of his young daughter; she smiled back up at him and reached out for the large Kainde Amedha tooth that hung around his neck. Both Mar'kel-ja parents laughed at the actions of the young child, Mar just stood there looking down into her young face, bursting with pride..

Colonial Marines - Elite Force

The Crew of the USS Aurian have been called upon to investigate the sudden loss of contact on LV429. A secret Medical Research and Developement Facility deep in the Beta Fora system. Details are sketchy at best. However, if the crew have been called, then something is seriously wrong on the planet. That's the setup for the upcoming 3D animated fan film from Purity Animation Studios entitled 'Colonial Marines - Elite Force'. Part 1 is scheduled for release in just 29 short days. Check their website out for background on the project, pictures and a trailer. Impressive... most impressive. Thanks to AvPNews for the heads up.
