Academy Award Winning Artist H.R. Giger, Dead At 74
H.R. Giger passed away this week, after suffering injuries caused by a fall. In his 74 years of life, he made the impression of a dark and brooding genius on anyone who saw his visage. Yet if you talked to the people who worked with him, they could have told you that he was a lot friendlier than his image's reputation would suggest.

Fox Is Building A Theme Park In Malaysia With Alien And Life Of Pi Rides
This actually isn't the first time that Fox has tried to launch a theme park of their own. In 1999 the studio opened the doomed Fox Studios Backlot in Australia, but the idea wound up flopping and the park closed two years after it opened. The Genting Outdoor Theme Park that currently exists will begin the upgrade process in September...

See The Men Behind The Monsters In Sensational Production Stills
Without the wizardry of modern computer imaging, Lang and his team created a movie monster who could bring down society, and created a Metropolis that still inspires artists today. And thanks to some fascinating behind-the-scenes photos, modern audiences can get a fuller appreciation of the work that went into building this world.

Alien Shooting Script Features Ridley Scott's Notes And Drawings
For as long as there has been art there have been people who analyze artists' works and try and get inside their minds. They look back and various pieces of literature, film, and music and discover themes, uncover allegory, and divine origin of inspiration. Much of the research is theory until either confirmed or explained by the creators, which isn't always an option - which is why we should treasure little pieces like this.

For Halloween, Some Truly Bizarre Polish Horror Movie Posters
The last one, which pretends to be for the corpse-dragging comedy Weekend at Bernie’s, is the absolute “WTF?” of the entire group. I can’t even begin to pretend that the two eyeballs on Peter Parker’s Web-shooting hand have to do with Ted Kotcheff’s 1989 movie.

Watch Some Creepy Test Footage From Ridley Scott's Alien
At 7' 2" Badejo had strangely long arms and a very slim form that Scott believed would look downright unearthly with a little bit of costuming. And he was right. Even in this test footage where Badejo wears little else but a mock-up head and slinks around a basic set, the transformation is unsettling and suitably alien.

Augmented Reality Delivers The Chestburster Experience Without All The Blood And Death
Cool as it may look in the Alien franchise, I'm fairly certain that none of us would ever want to go through the horror of having a chestburster launch out of our chest. In addition to the fact that it results in death (there's no real positive spin on that aspect), it also looks insanely painful and just the thought of an alien being making a home in your ribcage is ridiculously disturbing.

What To Know About The Alien Universe Before Seeing Prometheus
Prometheus may not be directly linked to Alien(s), but there is little doubt it returns Ridley to the world he created over thirty years ago-- and though it’s not strictly necessary to know a lot about the Alien movies before seeing Prometheus, you might like to have a little context if you haven't caught the earlier films

UPDATE: James Cameron Will Not Direct A Prometheus Sequel
"There's a gap of a few years between Prometheus and the original Alien," Cameron tells The Guardian. "That gap is meant for me to answer all the questions raised in Prometheus."

Prometheus International Poster Uses A Very Similar Design
The studio’s content to stick with that tagline – “The search for our beginning could lead to our end” – which confirms the basic story of a team of astronauts (played by Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce and Noomi Rapace) venturing to the darkest corners of our universe when they discover a clue to the origin of our species. Beyond that, virtually everything else about Scott’s sci-fi/horror hybrid remains a mystery.

Prometheus Image Reveals Two Space Jockey Suits
In case you haven’t seen Scott’s 1979 masterpiece in years, the Space Jockey was the mysterious, fossilized alien creature spotted sitting in a chair, or on some throne of bizarre technology. Scott, at one point, promised the Space Jockey’s back story – and that still may be coming – but then he changed his tune to say that Prometheus will be a standalone story with threads that might connect with Alien.

Prometheus Trailer Finds Pure Terror In Outer Space
Scott’s clearly alluding to his seminal sci-fi classic with the way the title Prometheus comes together on screen. And even his imagery, from cinematographer Dariusz Wolski, looks like it continues from Scott’s 1979 effort. Yes, there are plenty of high-tech spaceship shots, and the technology has advanced. But by first glances, this is a companion piece to Alien< and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Ridley Scott Says The Xenomorph Is Absolutely Not In Prometheus
With the release of Prometheus still more than six months away, I'm not entirely sure why Ridley Scott is doing lengthy interviews about the film, especially since his m.o. has been to keep most of the basic plot details under wraps while hinting at where this sci-fi film fits in alongside his landmark Alien

Michael Fassbender Watched Blade Runner To Prepare For His Prometheus Role
It makes sense, in a way. While the characters of Ash and Bishop are unforgettable, the core of Blade Runner is very much about what it means to be "human," and whether an artificial being can measure up to that standard and thus be worthy of the same respect and consideration as us fleshy types. Plus, it's not like Fassbender went off into some other director's interpretation of androids. He's keeping it within the Ridley Scott family.

Is Ridley Scott's Alien Prequel Basically Star Trek V?
There's a crazy rumor from a tipster who describes the movie it's like some sort of Ridley Scott take on Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. There’s no way to know if any of what this scooper has to say is the real deal, but just in case it is, tune out now if you don’t want to read possible spoilers for Prometheus.

Damon Lindelof Explains How Prometheus Is Both An Alien Prequel And Its Own Movie
Lindelof describes Prometheus as "the movie I would want to see as a fanboy, take place in that Alien universe, which precedes the events of the original Alien, but is not necessarily burdened by all the tropes of that franchise with Facehuggers and Chestbursters."

New Prometheus Rumors Suggest Major Alien Ties, Return Of The Space Jockey
Even though the production is quickly assembling a cast that includes Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender, precious little information about the actual plot has leaked, and it's entirely likely that whatever leaks we do here are part of deliberate misinformation campaigns
