Now Entering Russ's World
There have been mixed responses to the news of the upcoming Alien movie which could easily be called The Other Alien 3. While some fans are quite interested in how this could turn out, there are some fans of the film series that are crying foul to the movie. Neil Blomkamp has stated that the film is not going to “undo” Alien 3, it is just going to be connected to Alien and Aliens. Brit Systems report that given the time that has passed since the release of Aliens and the age of the returning actor Sigourney Weaver, it is also safe to say that it is not going to take place between Aliens and Alien 3.
This is going to be a separate timeline that branches out from Aliens. The other films are still going to be available for viewing. Both Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection were considered inferior films to the first two installments. Alien 3 suffered from excessive studio interference. The extended cut is definitely a massive improvement over the choppy theatrical cut. However, it is still somewhat inferior to the other films. Alien 3 was a rather depressing film. Neil Blomkamp’s Alien movie is likely to take on a more hopeful tone for the series.
