what would 3-D bring to an Alien film?
The depth of the Z-axis beyond the flat screen.
Modern 3-D (RealD) adds depth to the screen and not just gimmicky jump at your face imagery. Get used to it. It differentiates the cinema experience with what someone can get on Blu-ray on a 60 inch HDTV at home in 2D. Hollywood can make more money per seat by offering films in 3-D at the cinema.
