Ross Burt took it upon himself to give a new, coherent design style to the posters of the first three Alien films, and we're just going to sit back and enjoy it. (And we certainly don't mind some of his other Aliens art either.
It Belongs in a Museum!No, that's not a picture of actress Sigourney Weaver. That's a sculpture of her Alien character, Ellen Ripley. Steve Scotts Sculpting Studios created it and good lord is it impressive. Check out the evolution from the original sculpt, to a bald, very Alien 3-esque Ripley, to the finished product.

It Came From Outer Space
You may not remember the "Bambi Burster" from Alien 3, but that's probably attributable to a few good reasons: the film is 20 years old, threequels are always kind of iffy, and, oh yeah, that thing is so terrifying you might have blocked it from your memory anyway. Watch as the film's crew makes sculptor Steve Norrington's quadrupedal xenomorph animate, and try not to let it creep you out too much. Think of it as refreshing: isn't it nice to see 3D models in an age of CGI? (via i09.)
