I wonder if they'll repackage it later on with the two prequels. At least they're not putting the Alien vs. Predator movies in there.

I have a feeling the two prequels will be considered their own series.

We'll probably have 4 separate sets. It'll be something like this:

Alien Prequels
Alien: The Ripley Chronicles
Alien vs. Predator Series
Predator Series

Speaking of... has there been any kind of rumblings about a sequel to 'Predators'? Did it do well enough to justify such a thing?

^More to the point, what will they call it? Predators 2, Predator 4 or Humans vs Predators and maybe some Aliens 6?

"More Predators"

"Too Many Predators"

"Predators Again? But I Had Them Last Night!"

"Predators: The Revenge"

(I think adding "The Revenge" to the title of a sequel should happen more often. Just saying.)

Re: Alien Anthology (Blu-Ray release) review thread

I thought Rodriguez was already talking about making a sequel called PREDATORS 2. But perhaps I'm confusing talk from before the release of PREDATORS with post-release sequel chatter.

I could go either way on a sequel, honestly. PREDATORS was good a 'meat and potatoes' action SF movie, but it was hardly outstanding. Unless a unique environment or some other twist can be applied to the franchise (and, as fun as Aliens and Predators in the same movie should have been, two tries has shown that idea to be more than played out) why bother?

Re: Alien Anthology (Blu-Ray release) review thread

Sorry to 'zombify' this, but the Alien blu-ray films will be out individually this May.

Hopefully some online rental place will be able to carry them, then-they're missing from Blockbuster and Netflix (Although Netflix does have an HD stream of Aliens, I'm pretty sure it's not the same).

Re: Alien Anthology (Blu-Ray release) review thread

I just got it this week and yes the first film's 4k telecine really shines on the HD version here. Hardly any big grain and great contast and black levels. It does not look like a 1970s movie for 90% of the film.
Also checked out "Aliens" and also looks great. I'm looking forward to the group commentaries i haven't heard yet.

It's been over 10 years since i saw the 3rd and 4th films so also great to get these. Thanks for mentioning the sound fx added and mix on 3rd film.
The composers original isolated score and final theatrical isolated score on "aliens" is interesting how much it changed and great to hear both married to picture.

The documentaries are really great and some of the footage is 16mm film and great to see them use a number of interviews over the years.


On the Aliens docu. For "the power of real tech visualFX" it has many great shots the VFX crew did and stories.

I can highly recommend this blu-ray set if you are a fan of even just the first 2 films. After seeing "Prometheus" at the cinema i really wanted to see this again and this is really the way to see it.
Has anyone else got this recently?
