  2. Minimalist Movie Posters, Made With Simple Sheets Of Paper

    Get on my wall.

    It feels almost unnecessary to write anything about artwork that manages to say so much with so little. My hat is off to the folks at Spanish design studio Atipo, who have proven the old adage about pictures being worth a thousand words.

  3. New List Of The 250 Greatest Moments in Sci-Fi, Horror, & Fantasy Is Sure To Cause Some Arguments

    WRONG!

    As with any "list" presented to the masses, there are the inevitable "but you forgot" and "that shouldn't be on there." We make such lists from time to time, so we're used to it, but we're not sure SFX Magazine is prepared to deal with the onslaught of responses to what they call the "definitive" list of moments from sci-fi, fantasy, and horror.

  4. Sigourney Weaver On The Legacy of Alien And The Possibility Of A Fifth Movie

    Spaaaaaaaaaaace

    When my brother was fourteen or so, I made him watch Alien with me. "This movie's important," I said. "Sci-fi and horror movies are what they are now because of this." He didn't dig it at first. The expository pacing did not pair well with the restlessness of puberty. The comment "this is boring" was muttered more than once -- right up until something horrible burst out of Kane's chest. He was rapt after that. The Alien franchise is something special, and it's impossible to imagine it without its leading lady, Sigourney Weaver. Recently, Weaver took part in a Q&A hosted by the Hero Complex Film Festival, in which she discussed the legacy of the series, the experience of playing Ellen Ripley, and her thoughts on a fifth Alien film. We've got the highlights below.

  7. H.R. Giger, Oscar-Winning Alien Designer, Dead at 74

    May hosts of xenomorphs sing you to your sleep, old friend.

    Whether you know H.R. Giger's name or not, you've definitely been scared by him: the Swiss surrealist who passed away yesterday was best known for his Oscar-winning work on Alien, for which he designed the sets and titular creature.

  9. New Alien: Isolation Video Evokes An Old School, Low Tech Future

    Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

    I am excited for this game. I am very excited for this game. Set fifteen years after the final voyage of the Nostromo, Alien: Isolation will cast the player as Weyland-Yutani employee Amanda, who is investigating the disappearance of her mother. Her mother, Ellen Ripley. This should end well! The video above highlights the developers' efforts to create an environment that looks and feels like the "chunky, analog, push-button" world of the original film. From this and other preview material I've seen, it seems like a lot of effort is being put into summoning that quiet, slow-burn tension Alien is so famous for. Bring it on.
