  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Ripley’s Exoskeleton From Aliens Is Real And You Can Buy One

    Get away from her, you... Oh, no. Actually, this is pretty great.

    We've all seen the clip from James Cameron's 1986 film Aliens, where Sigourney Weaver (as eternal badass Ellen Ripley) puts the smack-down on an alien queen while wearing a strength-enhancing exoskeleton. Looks like the folks over at Panasonic have seen it too, because they've manufactured their own version - and are going to start mass-production.
