Bundle Up With The First International Riddick Poster

fb share tweet share

Despite facing what, at times, seemed like insurmountable odds, star Vin Diesel and director David Twohy have finally managed to squeeze out another Riddick film. At least it certainly looks that way. Their labor of love has faced so many delays and setbacks, that until we see the movie in theaters (or at least commercials running during prime-time television), I won’t be entirely convinced. But this new international poster is definitely a step in the right direction.

Read The Pre-Lindelof Prometheus Script, From When It Was Still Called Alien: Engineers

fb share tweet share

The fan conversation about Prometheus seemed to get a second wind after the home video release of the film last month. Some are still calling it brilliant. Some are still convinced it’s an abomination cluttered with gaping logic holes. And many seem to fall into the same camp I do: admiring what the film was trying to do, but bewildered by the characters doing one stupid, illogical thing after another. There’s no question that these problems should have been addressed in the script stage, by both director Ridley Scott and by Damon Lindelof (Lost), whose draft was used for the final film, and who shared screenwriter credit with Jon Spaihts. Now an earlier draft of the movie that became Prometheus has popped up online, giving us an intriguing look at a different path the film could have taken.

The script appeared on Prometheus Movie over the weekend, and has since been confirmed as genuine by screenwriter Jon Spaihts via Twitter. If you’re interested, we recommend you check it out quickly, because there’s no telling when/if Fox’s lawyers will begin trying to scour all copies of it off the internet. If it’s already gone by the time you read this, fear not: we’ll have our own look at the screenplay posting later this week.

A New Stage In The Alien Lifecycle: The Chesthugger

fb share tweet share

What’s even worse than one of those nasty facehuggers from the Alien movies? A facehugger with a libido. At least that’s my explanation for how or why a facehugger has suddenly ended up attached to this girl…

Or maybe it’s just an article of clothing. Actually, it’s definitely an article of clothing. It’s the facehugger corset, appropriately dubbed the chesthugger by the designers at Rage Custom Creations.

Americans Believe President Obama Is More Suited To Deal With An Alien Invasion Than Mitt Romney

fb share tweet share

In a recent study the National Geographic Channel found that nearly 65% of American’s surveyed think President Barack Obama would be better equipped to handle an alien invasion than probable Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney. 

Why the confidence in Obama? If there were an Alien invasion most believe we should try to befriend the aliens rather than go to war with them, which is probably why most feel President Obama would be better suited to deal with this situation. It seems as though President Obama would give a more personal touch by taking more of a diplomatic approach to Earth’s would-be alien visitors. Perhaps Americans feel Romney is too much of a stuffed shirt to deploy an unifying solution where Americans and aliens can benefit from each other.

The study also states 80 million Americans believe UFOs exist and 1 in 10 of those believe they’ve seen them at one point in their lifetime. The survey continues to state 17% of Americans don’t believe UFOs exist, while 36% think they do, and 48% aren’t sure what to think.
