New Alien 5 Concept Art Brings Back Newt and She's Badass

In celebration of Alien Day, Neill Blomkamp posted some more concept art from his version of Alien 5, a film that is in constant flux as to whether or not it will exist—Schrödinger’s movie, if you will.

Now, since this is concept art from Alien 5 of Newt, it can be inferred that Blompkamp’s intention is to bring that character back from the dead for this movie—either explaining it away or shoving Alien 3 out of canon. Of course, Blompkamp didn’t actually say any of this. His comment on the Instagram post is just “Alien Day.”
