News of filmmaker Neill Blomkamp’s hypothetical Alien movie has been swirling for the better part of two years. In that time, we’ve heard so many rumors and quotes about it that it’s hard to keep them straight. But a new one is a clear as crystal.
When Neill Blomkamp released art that he had put together for an Alien project that he wanted to work on, it was quickly greenlit, then put on the back burner when Ridley Scott announced his own Alienverse film, Alien: Covenant. According to Sigourney Weaver, Blomkamp might still get to make his film.
Some fans of James Cameron’s Aliens consider Newt the worst part of the movie: Her high-pitched scream, laughable dialogue, it can be painful. If you are one of these people, I have some potentially bad news: Newt might be the star of Neill Blomkamp’s Aliens sequel.
Last week, word broke that Neil Blomkamp’s Alien 5 was being put on hold due to ongoing work while Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2 is being developed. That’s a shame, but if Fox looks at what Marvel’s been doing, they can probably have their cake and eat it too.
Image Engine, the Vancouver-based special effects company that worked on Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie, has posted up a VFX breakdown reel that shows just how they transformed Sharlto Copley into the film’s titular robot.
Adam Sandler’s new movie Pixels will leave a lot of people wondering how this movie even exists. What kind of a universe allows such a travesty to happen? But Pixels came about because a short film went super-viral. And here are nine other films that were greenlit purely thanks to internet manias.
Chappie, the childlike super-genius robot, is the best thing about Chappie, the movie. And a large part of that is due to Sharlto Copley’s insane performance, done via motion capture. We’ve got an exclusive clip from the movie’s DVD featurettes that shows how Copley created the character.
When Chappie was released in the U.S., it was a R-rated film. But for the movie’s upcoming Japanese release, Sony decided to edit the film for kids 12 years-old and up. Here’s where things get really awkward.
Sharlto Copley (District 9) brought the titular robot of Chappie to life, thanks to performance capture and director Neill Blomkamp, but as it turns out everyone wanted him dead. We spoke with the Chappie'scast — Copley, Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver — about the violence they inflicted upon this adorable robot.
Here are the first-ever clips from Neill Blomkamp's Chappie movie, which are laughably devoid of any actual scenes with the titular robot. But what they do have is plenty of villains and Hugh Jackman with a mullet.
From the moment that District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp released his concept art for a possible Alien movie, we've been salivating over the possibility of a Blomkamp-directed Alien film. But after saying that he wasn't "ready" to make it, Blomkamp has apparently confirmed it's his next project.
Dwayne Johnson talks Black Adam's place in the DC Universe. There are already rumors about who's the new Spider-Man. Neill Blomkamp delves into his Alien project. Sophie Turner talks Sansa's Game of Thrones journey. And Hugh Jackman ponders a place in the Marvel Universe for Wolverine. Spoilers await!
What would Neill Blomkamp's much speculated about idea for an Alien movie look like in real life? One clever artist took the director's insane concept designs another step forward bringing Aliens' Corporal Dwayne Hicks back from the dead.
Neill Blomkamp's new robot movie Chappie is hilarious, like Short Circuit on speed, judging from what we've seen so far. But this brand new trailer hints that there's a serious topic at the heart of the film, and you might want to strap yourself in for some intense emotions.
Guess what? Neill Blomkamp was working on a secret Alien project that included Sigourney Weaver reuniting with Corporal Hicks, and the concept art is gorgeous. But now it's dead, or was never going to be made in the first place, and I'm just going to scream "PROMETHEUS" into a pillow all day until I pass out from…
Check out the very heartstring-pulling, musical-swelling look at Chappie, District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp's smaller, robot-centric film, which also stars Hugh Jackman and musical duo Die Antwoord.
