Aliens Unleashed: My Animated Aliens Fan Film

I didn’t plan this, but in the spirit of the new Alien movie, I have finished my animated fan film Aliens Unleashed. I have worked on it all by myself for over a year with only the help of my cast for the characters using XNALara models and animating them in Blender and getting public domain songs and sound effects from YouTube and other places. It is finally done and I’m glad. And there are more fan films to come. My Friday the 13th reboot will be my next project, and then I will return to Aliens with my sequel to Unleashed, Aliens Apocalypse

After the events of Aliens (retconning Alien3 and Alien Resurrection) Newt and Hicks returned to Earth to find Ripley has disappeared and the company denied everything. 30 years later, Newt and Hicks have moved to a new colony to move on with their lives. Only to discover that Weyland-Yutani has dug up the Derelict ship and harvested the eggs breeding lots of Aliens in a secret lab near the colony. The Aliens have been unleashed and it’s up to Newt to lead the colonists to safety or they will suffer the fate of LV-426.

Hope you enjoy.

Aliens Passing The Torch

The net is a buzz with what the next Alien movie will be with Neill Blomkamp at the helm and the return of Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, and possibly Michael Biehn as Hicks. it seems that this movie will be a retcon despite the fact that Blomkamp said he’s “Not gonna undo Alien3 and Alien Resurrection”, he seems to have no love for the two movies and talks about how he wants to be a sequel to only Alien and Aliens. Weaver talks about this to be the end of Ripley, considering that she’s not getting any younger, seems that she wishes to close the book on her for one last time. This will probably be Ripley’s last ride, and maybe Hicks too. But if there’s one thing I know about studios is they like making money, and the only way to do that is with sequels. In my opinion, there’s only one way to continue the franchise without Ripley. If this is a retcon, it means that Newt is still alive too, there is no proof that she’ll be included in this story, but she could still be alive, That’s the idea, maybe after this it is time to pass the torch to another character who can carry on the franchise, a new young female star. And I think that person can be Newt. She’s could be the new star and she’s like a surrogate daughter to Ripley. This has been done before in a comic book series written by comic book turn TV producer Mark Verheiden, his comic series starred Newt, grown up, as the lead alongside Hicks, and eventually Ripley in the 3rd and final book. Unfortunately, after the release of Alien3 the books were reprinted with different names, Newt and Hicks became Billie and Wilks, and the SD Perry novelization said that Ripley was a robot. But the point is, Newt could be the new star and carry on the series for a new generation and I think she can be the new Ripley.

That is what I would do and have been preaching for years.

I hope you enjoy them, read them in order, Unleashed, Apocalypse, and Vengeance.

While you’re at it, take a look at my fan art, along with my DC Cinematic Universe ideas I came up with.

Alien3 Reboot

This is something I’ve been wanting to post and questioning whether or not to post it.

I’m a huge fan of Ridley Scott’s Alien and James Cameron’s Aliens, mostly Aliens. I can’t stand Alien3, it ticks me off that after everything Ripley went through in Aliens was all a waste in the first five minutes 3. Resurrection wasn’t any better, at least it didn’t kill off great characters in the first five minutes making everything the heroes went through in the previous film all for nothing. Ever since 3, the series has been going down hill, the only film that was an improvement was Prometheus, but not by very much because of all it’s huge plot holes.

I feel the only way to reinvent the Aliens series is do what many movies have done before with one simple word, “retcon.” Simply make a straight sequel to Alien and Aliens and retcon 3 and 4 like they never happened. They could even bring back the original cast like Weaver, Biehn, maybe Henricksen, and they could bring a new actress to play Newt all grown up (since Carrie Henn is retired). I always thought it would’ve been great to do a whole Aliens story maybe franchise centered around Newt as a grown up.

Which has been done before, prior to the release of Alien3 Dark Horse wrote an Aliens comic book trilogy centered around Newt all grown up written by TV writer/producer Mark Verhieden. It was a good series, I enjoyed it. Unfortunately after the release of 3, Fox reprinted the books with different names, Newt became Billie, Hicks became Wilks, and in the Steve Perry adaptations Ripley became a droid. COP-OUT!!! I have the original comics before the reprint, they are prized possessions of mine.

Movies have done this before, both Prometheus and Predators ignored the Aliens vs. Predator movies like they never even happened. Superman Returns was a direct sequel to the original Superman 1 and 2 and retconed 3 and 4. Halloween: H20 was a direct sequel Halloween 1 and 2 and retconed 4-6, course 3 was a different kettle of fish. Just recently, Texas Chainsaw (3D) was a direct sequel to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre and ignored 2 and 3. If these movies can do it, why not Aliens?

They could really bring a new actress to carry on the Aliens legacy with Newt and Michael Biehn and Sigourney Weaver could return as supporting characters.

Well, that’s my idea. I’m very passionate about this idea, I even wrote my own stories as a hobby, even made photoshop fan art of my stories. I really miss the Xenomorphs on screen and I feel they bring back these characters as if 3 and 4 never happen to usher in a new Aliens franchise for a new generation.
