Default Ridley Scott's Alien Prequel - Prometheus (2012)



Was originally intended as a prequel to Ridley Scott's Alien (1979), but Scott decided to turn it into an original film with Noomi Rapace (who was already set to star in the prequel) still in the cast as one of five main characters. Some time later however, it was confirmed that the movie will take place in the same universe as Alien (1977), it will greatly reference that movie, but it will, for the bigger part, be an original movie and not a direct prequel.

'Alien' is a truly great film. An all time classic sci-fi horror, which hasn't dated hardly in the slightest. I can't see any reason to remake this at all!

I can: $$$$$


Seriously, I don't mind this at all. The director is a commercial director with some potential (he made that creepy dancing robot Heineken commercial) and its being produced by the Scott bros.

If it sucks you always have the original. The more horror the better!

I'm not opposed to a prequel (which is the current rumor). But a remake i am 100% opposed to.

Fincher ass-raped the series with part 3
same goes for you.

I don't know whats worse, that its being remade, or that ridly scott seems to be going along with it. He wouldn't even be a filmmaker if not for that movie.this truely is a sad day. Predator, NOW Alien. the horror won't end with thier release either. sequel's will follow and hollywood will destroy millions of peoples favorite movies for the sake of wringing out some more money to make the rich even richer. God I hate this fucking country.

Seriously... why does everyone whine like a puritan at an orgy whenever a "classic film" is being remade? Don't want to watch a remake of your favorite film? Ok, then don't watch it. It's really quite simple. I really don't give a shit, they could remake any movie they want, if it's good then I will be happy about it. If it sucks then I will just not give a shit and stick to watching/telling people about the original.
