Hard “R” Rating For ‘Alien: Covenant,’ Says Ridley Scott!
But the shocker is the reveal that he is planning something “much worse” than the famous chest-burst scene.
>One of the reporters pointed out that fans of the horror genre are still looking for films like Alien to which Scott responded, “That’s why I’m doing it. I’m going to do pretty hard ‘R.’ Pretty tough.”
>But the shocker is the reveal that he is planning something “much worse” than the famous chest-burst scene.
THIS WILL BE CRAZY
Who gives a shit, the best part of the chestburster scene was that literally no one expected it. Now we expect something similar to happen. Ruined your movie before you even finished it, Ridley, you idiot.
mfw it get s a heavy R for vaginal alien birth as shown in comics.
This is worse than trailers that give away an entire movie. Now everyone will be sitting in the theater waiting for the "better than chest burst" scene.
Fuck Ridley Scott.
>incurs pleb rage for making challenging movies like Prometheus and The Counselor
>gets an oscar nomination for a pandering capeshit tier flick like The Martian
>now going to give Alien the Disney Star Wars treatment
There was a /tg/ thread last night that had links to all the scripts and interviews and shit about how the original concept was the alien was a feral of its species that due to lack of contact with adults of its own kind lacked any social context or skills and enjoyed killing and slowly raping people to death.
Prometheus was a massive let down in the script department but the c-section scene was worthy of the Alien series.
I'm excited to see what Scott has next.
This. Jesus Chris, Ridley. What the fuck.
Also it was bad enough when Giger was only asked to do some unimportant wall paintings for Prometheus, but now the guy is actually dead. No one will ever be able to get his assistance on anything again. And I don't trust any actual innovations to be done in the series without Giger.
Nobody gave 2 shits about the space jockey.
The space jockey always could have and still can be just about anything.
What people want is Engineer vs predator.
Or more more genetic diversity of the aliens.
>WHAT COULD BE SCARIER THAN THE STRAUSS BROTHERS RAPING ALIEN LORE
Indeed anonymous, indeed
Of course it will. What was the last good movie to come out of Hollywood? Blade Runner had a better chance than say. Ghostbusters, for escaping the sequel raping relatively intact but yeah, Ridley is gonna ruin it.
>What people want is Engineer vs predator.
Really? Engineers are just big humans now. Who the hell cares about this vs predator?
If that faggot guard in the movie just shoot him in the head movie would be over.
It won't be anywhere near as good as the original but it won't be as bad as most needless sequels. Villeneuve, Deakins and Gosling will give us something that's at least watchable.
Ridley is just a producer on Blade Runner 2.
I'll probably get some shit for saying this but I liked the 2013 Evil Dead remake. It wasn't as good as the original Evil Dead movies but it was way better than the vast majority of remakes.
It's going to be a scene akin to the werewolf in London where the guy turns into the monster.
It's gonna be some human shedding its skin and be the modern equivalent of the werewolf transformation.
The chest burst scene is iconic. Having a similar scene where the alien comes out of the ass, skull, or dick will just be shitty. He's gonna go for full transformation.
I liked it as well. I am ok with the bleak tone, every movie in that franchise feels different from each other anyway. If we can have a full blown comedy with army of darkness I don't see a problem with the latest one being a full blown gore movie.
It's one of two reasons I saw it senpai, the other was based fassy.
Well, I did watch it for Javier Bardem too, and I have to say that whatshername, the blonde lady, was fucking awful and a bad choice for that character.
This could be true, do we even know how the queens are made?
>yfw in Ridley's mind, Prometheus = alien and covenant = aliens
>crew battles the "covenant" the entire movie with a climax of the birth of a queen
Unless it's something I can fap to, I don't care
He probably wanted to do Cuntbursting scene in Alien but they studios wouldn't let him. Now we live in a degenerate age where Jews sex up children, multi-racial romance and lgbt paradise they're probably like "Go for it!"
Never been on /lit/ because they fetishise Ayn Rand and I believe in state intervention. But that's another discussion
Really the problem wasn't that McCarthy's a shit writer, but that he didn't know how to write a screenplay and make it engaging. Couple that with him trying to write 'muh deep symbolism heavy dialogue' that didn't sound like how people talk, and you've got yourself a shitty script. Ridley's never been good at choosing scripts and/or spotting what's bad about them, so he took the shitty script and made a shitty movie.
It was a modern day robinson curuso minus the goat fucking.
But I've always recognized Scott as primarily a visual director. His plots and stories are never deep just a framework to hang a visual presentation on.
Yep, it was an original script from him, it wasn't adapted from one of his novels.
I loved it, though I will freely admit that it didn't necessairly have to do with the direction.
When you get a chance you should kill yourself.
>everything needs to read exactly like real life dialogue
spotted the redditor, there are hundreds of different types of narrative and only a few of them necessairly go for realism. People don't talk like they do in real life in theatre plays and people don't complain about it.
She looks like there's just an aura of chlamydia circling around her infecting anyone that gets too close. And if you were to touch her, I bet there's a thin layer of film all over.
I am annoyed at Ridley for changing the name constantly.
First it was Prometheus 2? Then Prometheus: Paradise. Then Alien: Paradise. Now Alien: Covenant.
Has his OCD settled down yet?
Nah I think I'll just go trap another bunny and fuck the open wound in its fluffy little stomach. I like rabbits the most because they spazz out and make these lovely screams just like a person. I will keep doing it and nothing you say will stop me, and I don't feel a shred of guilt.
So, for all of you who are hyped for this film, did you not see Prometheus? Ridley Scott is a hackfuck idiot of a director who is too scatter-brained to be given as much executive authority as he is given on projects these days. His best films, like Lucas, came as a result of him being kept in check by producers, editors and writers. Once Ridley gets his stupid hands all over a project and has his say in everything, you end up with the half-aborted Alien prequel mess that was Prometheus.
I hope so. Hope Ridley is not controlled by the film industry and is allowed to do his own thing.
We all know what happened with Fantastic 4 the new one.. the director filmed over 30 minutes of action sequences and the film company made him cut it out as he tweeted about how angry he was with them controlling his film.
Alright, I haven't actually seen the Counselor, I was just shitposting.
>comparing Ridley to Lucas
Ridley is immensely talented when it comes to visuals. Also, Ridley has never written his movies.
You're retarded if you can't figure that out. Do you think all R-rated movies contain an exactly equal amount of explicit content? Clearly some are closer to NC-17 than they are to PG-13.
Prometheus was alright, interesting little story of human belief.
But really though I fault it strongly for pretty much telling us everything there is to know about the Space Jockeys and the Xenomorphs. In Alien it truly FELT Alien in that no one knew what the fuck was going on. In Prometheus it says the Jockeys are our maker and they wanted to turn us into Xenomorphs for some bizarre religious ceremony.
I'd be more excited if Covenant just avoided Xenomorphs and Space Jockeys entirely and had it be a new movie monster. Unforunately that will never happen especially since there's no more HR Giger around to draw disturbing shit.
There will be an engineer/xenomorph love scene. But here's where it gets interesting. We show it. We show ALL of it. I'm talking about full penetration. Fights aliens, full penetration, more fighting, full penetration, and so on, until the movie just sort of ends.
The weakest aspect of Ridley's Scott's output is how cookie cutter and "hollywood" his movies have become. Alien and Blade Runner are a whole league of difference structurally and tonally from something like the Martin, Exodus and Prometheus
I honestly think Ridley Scott would benefit from just taking producer roles and giving all the projects he's interested in to Denis Villeneuve to direct. Villeneuve really reminds me of a young Ridley Scott.
THIS, if he's ong back to his roots lets explore that sector of lambert getting her shit pushed in and raped in half but seeing it this time, even push the tail through her anus and make it come out of her mouth, that would be insanely hoffific and do it like gigers painting, but have the alien all twitching and moving erratic, shit would be one hell of a way to go out as his last film
But anon, alein go in ass and alien go out are same thing.
Isn't that exactly what's happening with the new Blade Runner flick? I believe that's also what was going to happen with Blomkamp's Alien, before Ridley Scott decided to make another fucking Prometheus.
>Alien was never about rape
>never about rape
What was the facehuggers dick doing down that mans throat laying his seeed in him?
What was alien doing to lambert? Why is she moaning rhythmically and her trousers removed when you see her and her legs and feet covered in blood?
It's all rape you fucking idiot
fuckk off fuckign mysoginistic pricks, its a shame you have small dicks and thats why you find my post funny, and fuck this site im done here, this is exactly why women are going to take over
>his storyboards got the studio to double Alien's budget
>helped design the Nostromo and the spacesuits
>fought the studio when they said Giger was too ghastly to design Alien
>to prepare the actors for their roles he wrote several pages of backstory for each character
>he came up with the end of Alien where Ripley fights the xenomorph on the shuttle
Ridley was a huge part of Alien. Don't sell him short just because in his old age he has lost some of his touch.
Watch the movie Splice. That is as closest as you will ever get to seeing an alien have intercourse.
jokes on you deliverance is a man getting raped and we are fine with that, because its shows mens power is not always finite, as for clockwork orange we dont mind either because it was in the contect and kubrick is a great director
the problem with other films are that they glorify rape and make it acceptable to show a woman as helpless and not being to fight back, its pathetic, i wish someone try to rape me i would never let them close, even if they did the punishments will be higher now because of all the rape in the news so again women are getting stronger and im telling you here first, we are going to get what we deserve, not you men
isnt she a transgender beast that rapes the woman at the end with like a 20 inch python of a cock? literally a subliminal representation of transgender mental illness, great documentary
>planning something “much worse” than the famous chest-burst scene
Shit. There's gonna be no talk about the bonus situation, is there.
adrien brody dindu nuffin
he a gud boi
he juss tryin' to get his career back together
no, she's not transgendered as transgendered applies to human being who are actually incapable of changing their gender
the creature in splice is a sequential hermaphrodite
>People were really excited when Blomkamp announced he was making a film for the fans and not the studio, so I've decided to steal his thunder and shit out another gimmicky, lazy piece of shit that falls apart in the 3rd act.
>Ridley Scott - 2106
listen motherfucker I got quads what i say is legit, hermaphrodite or not it was literally a subliminal reference to wanting to be a man and she did it and raped the shit out of her becasue that what mental degenerates want
I can't tell if this is b8 or not... If it is, great job m8. If it isn't, please seek help. If the only thing hindering you from hurting something living is the fact that you're smarter than it is, you're deranged, cruel and you need help. Also, by this logic of yours, it would be perfectly fine for someone like, lets say, black science man to come to your house and give your anus a tearing it could've never imagined was possible.
Didn't he say the same thing about Prometheus and c-section scene? That ended up being pretty tame. I did like the part where the "placenta" bursts and soaks her open stomach wound in alien juice. I thought that was a nice touch.
seriously gas yourself, no m8, I've seen over 3000 films legitemately and im not evena fucing film student, ive seen close to voer 1000 foreign films, I've also seen film from the 50s up until now, my visual library out pontificates yours exponentially and you need to fucking understand that you are a millenial faggot and i have the last say because i know and have seen way more than you you fucking michael bay degenerate
STOP MAKING EVERYTHING ABOUT TRAPS
It was the the express intention of the original writers, Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett, to write a scary sci-fi picture which featured the notion, or suggestion of homosexual rape as a transgressive, subversive story element. After the fact (of the screenplay), as other creatives and elements came into the project, Lambert's kill-rape was one-way-or-the-other added into the final product, while the larger story arc for the humans involves them getting fucked over metaphorically by their employer, which was made clearer in re-writes not due to O'Bannon and Shusett (but which even they acknowledge made the story better). I am referring specifically to the idea that Ash was a company plant on board, to protect the company's interests. Just before the bot is destroyed, in the midst of a twitchy-error-confusion, he even attempts to orally "rape" Ripley with a rolled-up magazine (Ash must be all smooth down there).
Alien is a film about rape.
The origins of the xenomorphs is a franchise that should not even exist.
They should be a species that has been around for billions of years preying on people that don't realize how dangerous the universe is.
Sorry but this is bullshit, Alien is a film about fucking Alien! Another fucking lifeform, it has nothing to do with Rape! You sick fucks are literally pulling fake wikipedia articles and contorted references now to try and make it legit!? It's pathetic, I'm literally about to make a thread on reddit to stop covenant being about rape and have fox be branded as a rape studio if they proceed to even go near this subject, I will make sure an army of women boycott this film
I kinda like that. I like how in the aliens movies humanity is depicted at a corporate train moving through the universe. And instead of the universe being organized like lets say star trek. It is wild. Filled with predatory races and animistic creatures. And the one incling or an organized race. The engineers is just bones now.
In a nutshell Aliens were good because they were a mystery monster of the universe and the more we learn the less interesting they get.
it's about pic related and
It's a higher art.
The ratings board wouldn't let him keep most of that scene in the final cut just like they won't let him in the next one either so I don't know what he's going on about.
Maybe a directors cut for the home version.
prometheus revealing how they were created didn't kill the interest they hold.
this is why prometheus was good, it revealed a lot, but not too much , so the alien universe stays mysterious n shit
It acknowledged pic related directly, as being very influential.
Nobody gives a shirt about the Aliens origin anymore. OK, they were created by accident from a biological weapon. Next.
At this point the only mystery anybody cared about is what are the engineers doing now.
>great director whose style couldn't be more suited to Blade Runner
>also Roger Deakins
My only issue is that by including Harrison Ford they'd ruin the ambiguous ending of the original. They really don't need his character to be in the movie.
>Never been on /lit/ because they fetishise Ayn Rand
You've clearly never visited. She's probably the more loathed author on /lit/, which is the most left wing board on 4chan
Originally, that scene had time lapse and was supposed to take days, to allow for recovery, during which time she saw the rest of the crew getting fucked up.
Original script was much more interesting.
Don't forget the Blob. That acid rape shit was INSANE. The movie is more on the funny side, but holy fucking shit.
>only movie I know that has a fake main character
>sets up MC, only to utterly destroy him
>switch to new, actual MC
>Bone Tomahawk was pretty visceral and hard not to react to, especially since the movie is hard to follow
>hard to follow
dude what. it's a straight-up western about rescuing civilized abductees from brutal savages. and christ are they brutal. best gore hands-down 2015.
It's a flow chart. it's easy to follow; the absurdity is the plot. There's so little explained, we can only assume the vial of dank shit the Engineers on Earth takes at the beginning is the same as the shit they find on the planet later. But's its not well explained why the Engineer taking this stuff broke down, while a drop turned human Space Jock into a freaky mess with a completely different non-human load in his balls. It's wacky writing that's so convoluted I can only assume Lindelof and co. were flying by the seat of their pants, just like in Lost. Lindelof should stick to EMOTIONAL mystery dramas like The Leftovers, and leave hard sci-fi to people who can plot shit.
She would literally be the perfect Rachel/Replicant in Blade Runner 2. Her autistically playing off Gosling's stoic detective would be fucking god-tier.
I absolutely hate the lore in Prometheus, but it's still a cool movie. The best was to cope with it is assume that the xenomorph evolves with every birth cycle, depending on environment and host.
>but that's literally so fucking easy to understand you goddamned moron
Wait a sec, Goofy, why are you assuming I suggested it was "difficult" to understand?
My point is that it's bullshit, not that it's hard to understand. Anyone who takes the time can figure it out, even the speculative points. My point is that it's fucking stupid and borderline crazy and that it shows the writer didn't think it through because no writer plans such intricate bullshit.
I'm sorry, there is no excuse for this shit. Lindelbitch was trying to pull a Lost on the Alien audience and nobody liked it.
The fake spoilers had better theories:
>humans mix Engie DNA with bees to create a bioweapon capable of anihilating the Engies before they cancel us; doing so, we create the Xeno, the Xeno is placed on the ship that's sent out to destroy earth: giant face hugger kills Space Jockey and makes babies, ship crashes on asteroid
Four horsemen of the Apocalypse.
I wish they had gone through with the Christian stuff.
>send emissary to calm down the humans who are going crazy with conquests and violence, AKA the Roman Empire
>they crucify the emissary
>Engineers decide that this is enough, time to stop the human experiment
>rebellious engie faction decides to sabotage the Apocalypse, use xeno against other faction
>natty engie VS biomechanical engie
>angels VS demons, from a human perspective
It IS evolution. The idea is that the basic primordial soup is from the Engie's own DNA, which then evolves.
Even today we have no real clue as to how life started. Panspermia is seriously considered; Prometheus' deal isn't very different from panspermia.
Notice all the cruciform positions that the Engineers and the Xeno use.
Reminder Christ was an Engineer.
Except in reverse: first Engineer, or Adam, dies so we can live, while Christ died so we could die, basically. And the Xeno is the wrath of God.
It's a Ridley Scott Alien film, how could it be bad?
This a million times.
This cunt: top earth biologist: literally isn't interested in dead alien lifeform.
THEN LITERALLY INTERESTED IN LIVE LIFEFORM THAT'S FUCKING HISSING AT THIM AND LOOKS LIKE A FUCKING DEATH SNAKE.
Alien characters were regular people with regular jobs and acted accordingly. They were fun, much of the chit chat was improvised, they were the real deal, and you felt bad for them but they never did stupid shit, they died because the alien was superior.
Now, THESE motherfuckers are all dumb as shit and do crap that makes you WANT them to die in horrible pain. That is not how you create fear.
>Scott hasn't made a watchable movie since Alien
Thelma & Louise
Black Hawk Down
Kingdom of Heaven (director's cut)
>At least Blomkamp's movies always look great.
Ridley's movies always look great too.
That was too dumb, though. It made abortion and C-section look like simple procedures you could do with a jack knife.
I thought the cesarean scene from prometheus was really cool and sorta related to the chest burster scene
That's what they were going for. Too bad they botched it.
Prometheus' main problem was the same as SW VII: trying to be a soft reboot instead of something new.
atleast it had a relative and realistic feeling atmosphere in prometheus, in Starwars it was simply deathstar #2 and thats what really bugged me about that movie. its a remake but for better purposes. I do feel however if youre not a fan of Alien than you wont understand shit in prometheus which is my main gripe with the movie
It was the third Death Star, and the Federation ship in TPM also served a similar plot function to the Death Star. So that's 4 times that a Star Wars movie ended up with the blowing up of a large structure to save the day.
right well you get my point. I feel ridley knows how to cater to his audience but in a different way than lucas
>atleast it had a relative and realistic feeling atmosphere in prometheus,
One of the few good things.
> I do feel however if youre not a fan of Alien than you wont understand shit in prometheus which is my main gripe with the movie
I almost considered the opposite: if you know the lore, you'll get even more confused trying to complete and connect the dots.
yea this is true aswell i feel there were alot of plotholes being a fan of Alien, but aswell its a prequel and i feel they tend to have plenty of plotholes to me.
Prometheus holds a special place in my heart because I went into it completely cold. No trailers. No spoilers. No hype. Making the connection to Alien on your own without it being spoiled was a pretty weird feeling. I wish more films would do that. Imagine someone making a predator film with calling it Predator. You could relive the mystery and surprise of the first film all over again.
it does have a feeling of pure mystery if you have no outside connections, which is very nice.
>No trailers. No spoilers. No hype.
What? It re-used the trailer from '79, with the same sound, and made every other movie do the same from then on. That trailer was huge and we analysed the shit out of it here. Huge fucking hype.
Where the fuck were you before it came out? It was more hyped than SW and far less memed.
You guys must be very new.
Abortions kill the baby. It wasn't killed, so it's a C-section.
>reminder that the machine is for males
>squid is the result of an infection human shooting his load into an infertile woman
>story of Mary
>man isn't the real dad
>old Bible stories about infertile women giving birth
>baby is a squid who orally fucks the Engineer
>Deacon alien is born of it
So facehuggers are kinda a fetish of mine
Honestly, the most fun I had from prometheus was the threads before the movie came out. Speculating was more fun than watching the fucking thing.
I don't regret a thing.
