The upcoming sequel to Aliens will ignore the events of Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.

The upcoming sequel to Aliens, which will be directed by Neill Blomkamp, will ignore the events of both Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection. Please read about it in the following article: Neill Blomkamp's 'Alien' Sequel Will Probably Forget About Two 'Alien' Movies AdamDeanHall (talk) (Contribs) 16:44, February 26, 2015 (UTC)

If this is true, then fans are pleased to see someone finally up to set things back to its correct track.General Wild Dog (talk) (Contribs) 03:26, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
I for one am not pleased with the idea. It's sad to think they're just going to rehash tired old characters with a silly retcon instead of actually doing something new with the series. Hicks and Newt have been dead for almost 25 years, it's sad that some people still can't get over that fact.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:09, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
The fact is, fictions and fictional characters can be manipulated all you want, and if constitution centuries old can be amended, so do movies.--General Wild Dog (talk) (Contribs) 09:36, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
That doesn't mean it's a good idea ;) --Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 12:05, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
Of course it's not a good idea, because it is an excellent idea.--General Wild Dog (talk) (Contribs) 16:13, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
In your eyes. I think it's a cheap move that reeks of lame fanfic and brings to mind all the worst nostalgic movie excesses of recent years. In a time when Hollywood is churning out endless bland, forgettable reboots and rehashes and re-sequels of classic movies — and doing so with only rare success — an idea like this worries me immensely. On top of which, I don't really wanna see a 60 year-old Michael Biehn fighting Aliens. With all due respect to him, the guy's just too old to be running around killing monsters. Plus we have Blomkamp's track record, which is decidedly spotty. District 9 was superb but his other movies have been all over the place and nothing like the kind of quality a project like this would demand.
Oh yeah, and you can also look at the last time they tried to retcon Hicks back into existence — Aliens: Colonial Marines. Great success that was.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:25, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
Forgettable or not is about brain integrity and functionality, if anyone finds something is difficult to be remembered, consult a physician, or read Shakespeare and Karl Marx, they really help. On a side note, if anyone doesn't like Hollywood's ways of filming, he/she can cease to mention them, or I always have a misconception that he/she is actually attracted by Hollywood productions nowadays.
On another side note, good folks like Hicks and Newt deserve to be alive and active (not to say they have personal scores to be settled with those Xenomorgh), that's basic moral sense. Anyone thinks otherwise should consult a psychologist or a priest. If someone thinks Michael Biehn is too old to be enlisted again, modern CG tech is sufficient to solve the problem.
On the third side note, Colonial Marines is quite a good game, although its potential is not fully realized. I rate it as 7.0/10, B Rank.--General Wild Dog (talk) (Contribs) 11:34, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
What has Shakespeare got to do with anything? And it's hard to leave Hollywood out of the argument when this film will be made by Hollywood. As for Hicks and Newt "deserving" to be alive, that's exactly the kind of argument in favour of a retcon that worries me. Because it's all about getting them back no matter what, rather than actually doing it for some important reason beyond simply pleasing bitter people that can't move on after so many years. Their deaths may have sucked, but you can't argue they were inappropriate for the dark, bleak tone of the film franchise, where terrible things happen to good people in the heartless void of space.
And as for your implication that I need mental help for thinking otherwise, do not throw around insults like that just because someone disagrees with you.
As far as Colonial Marines being "quite a good game"... Even forgetting the fact it was a broken, graphically ugly mess, its story had one of the most immature, ridiculous plots I've ever seen in officially licenced media. It felt like it had been written by a 12 year-old with exactly the kind of "Hix n' Noot!" attitude that concerns me about Blomkamp's proposed retcon. It couldn't even be factually consistent with itself, let alone the movies it was supposedly an "official" sequel to.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 13:29, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
EDIT: Hold on, you're the guy who tried to argue Eric Red's Alien 3 was a masterpiece. OK, now I see why you think Colonial Marines was a good game.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 13:30, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
Shakespeare is the pride of western literature, his stories are second to none and very catchy, easy to be remembered. And "hard" is not "impossible", "Hollywood" can be easily replaced by "United States of America".
"Inappropriate for the dark, bleak tone of the film franchise" That's the general moral issue in western: lacking faith to the world and to future. Alien and Aliens succeeded partly because they promoted human nature's brighter side even in utter darkness, thus became good guy's salvation at each film's end, in short, they had faith in humanity. But the following film complete went to a wrong direction. Can't blame them for since 90's western was declining in an alarming rate, people lost faith, filming community also got influenced.
I never insult any dissidents, if someone fell for it, there's nothing I can do because I scored a point or several points. To this end, I apologize for hurting dissidents' fragile hearts.
Guess you didn't read my statement carefully, I didn't say Colonial Marines is perfect, instead pointing out it's potential is not fully realized, thus means it has many problems to be reworked. Can't blame you since last time some Ruskie guy also didn't read my statement with carefulness.
Glad to see you have memory back, and this is not the second time we point muzzles to each other. I actually eager to meet you in person since we have many agrees and disagrees to debate, too bad geographically, there's a distance of 8000 km between us.--General Wild Dog (talk) (Contribs) 16:04, February 8, 2016 (UTC)

I know exactly who Shakespeare is. I am British and I studied Shakespeare extensively at school. I was asking what his works have to do with this subject. The answer is nothing.

As for your comment that I'm a "dissident" or unable to read, which all sounds suspiciously like more insults, I consider further arguing with you to be pointless and futile. As The Cruentus says, continuing as you are will result in punitive measures being taken.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:11, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

Didn't Blomkamp himself outright stated that Alien 5 would not ignore the events of Alien3 and Resurrection ? Something like "I’m not trying to undo ‘Alien 3′ or ‘Alien Resurrection,’ I just wanted it to be connected to ‘Alien 1′ and ‘2.’" But that contradicts recent statements made by Sigorney Weaver as well as concept art of grown-up Newt.

Other Characters?

Will there be new characters in Alien 5 besides Ripley, Hicks, and Newt? Maybe a Captain of a Starship that went looking for the Sulloco after the events of Aliens, along with a crew of Naval and Marine personnel? HarryAck (talk) (Contribs) 00:15, March 22, 2015 (UTC)

AvPGalaxy would probably be a better place to talk about this. We typically use talk pages to discuss the relevant article. :) --Toa Quarax(Talk) 02:06, March 22, 2015 (UTC)

I would love the existence of Neill Blomkamp's Aliens sequel, but they must not ignore Alien 3 and Resurrection. I get it, they want to revive an Aliens sequel as fans would like, but they must not ignore, unless this is a reboot.Miguel Evaristo (talk) (Contribs) 19:55, June 18, 2017 (UTC)Miguel Evaristo

Alien Awakening

I think that there should be an article made for Alien Awkening.--Preceding unsigned comment added by MikeChristie13 (talk) - Please sign your messages with ~~~~

We don't really have enough info on Awakening to justify a page. Even Ridley doesn't seem to know if it's supposed to be a prequel or sequel to Covenant. It's best left to the Future section of the Alien franchise page.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 11:34, August 19, 2019 (UTC)
