XENO-PHO­BIA

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Your Sfx -

I have been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing flash­backs in­volv­ing Bran­don Routh fly­ing around in tights and a cape. The blame for this has to sit squarely with Neill Blomkamp and his plans for a fifth Alien film that won’t be Alien 5, but will in­stead be a kind of se­quel to Alien and Aliens, ig­nor­ing parts three and four. Didn’t Bryan Singer do ex­actly the same thing with Su­per­man Re­turns? Let’s hope that un­like Singer’s take on Su­per­man the be­lated Alien in­stal­ment will be more than just a homage to a much- liked film se­ries be­fore the wheels came off.

lord knows we’re over­due a good Alien film, but I’m not sure this is the right way to go about it. the se­ries has res­ur­rected char­ac­ters be­fore, and look how that turned out.
