If you’re a horror game fan, this fall is going to be hotter than a Sumerian summer. Two massive titles are set to hit console in the pre-Christmas season, and one of them, Alien: Isolation, just released a new video.
Instead of game footage, this video shows some behind-the-scenes moments with the cast of the original Alien and some of their thoughts on video games and the enduring quality of the film. Everyone from Sigourney Weaver to Harry Dean Stanton makes a quick appearance.
This was no doubt done to encourage people to pre-order Alien: Isolation, which comes with the Crew Expendable and Last Survivor Dlc featuring the cast of the original film. Both Dlc packs recreate scenes from Alien and should be a big enough incentive for any horror fan to pre-order the upcoming game.
Alien: Isolation is a first person survival horror game where »

As creator Bryan Fuller puts it, the last season of Hannibal “ended with everybody bleeding, and Hannibal dropping the mic and walking out,” but the next season is about to get even more intense. At EW’s Comic-Con hideout, Fuller offered some hints about the next season, including clues as to how the series will incorporate Hannibal and Dr. Du Maurier back to the rest of the characters, and talked about the various Alien collectibles he’d like to pick up in San Diego. The big prize? Sigourney Weaver, who Fuller admitted he’d love to sign for a spot on the show. »

Being that she's one of the most badass characters in film history, it only makes sense that the Alien universe's Ellen Ripley has been honored with a handful of action figures over the years. But there's always been a catch involved, which has resulted in them being a bit less than screen-accurate.
You see, Sigourney Weaver had never given permission for her likeness to be used, and so most of the Ripley toys out there don't quite look like Ripley. But that all changes thanks to Neca, who have Finally acquired the license, and have not one but two incredible Ripley figures in the works.
At Comic-Con, the company is showing off both figures for the very first time, and we've got the images for you today, courtesy of Figures.com!
Both toys will be included in the fourth series of Neca's ever-expanding Alien line, the first one depicting Ripley »

Ridley Scott immersed viewers in a spaceship of horrors 35 years ago and now it’s time to return. Alien: Isolation may focus on Ripley’s daughter, but Sega and The Creative Assembly are allowing gamers to relive the events of the 1979 movie and have brought back much of the Nostromo’s crew, including Sigourney Weaver, to lend their likeness and voice. A new video shows the original cast reflecting on the film’s legacy and the upcoming game.
This will be part of two Dlc missions that will allow players to relive classic scenes from the movie and are part of the game’s pre-order offerings. Alien: Isolation is due out on October 7th. In addition to the game’s new video from The Creative Assembly, a previous trailer and two screenshots are also included below. Read on for more details on the bonus missions and how to »

For Neill Blomkamp’s next slice of sci-fi freshness, Chappie, he’s tapping into a more comic vein that was evident in either District 9 and Elysium. Both of those have wit and laughs, but at the end of the day there’s only so much levity to be mined from the sight of Matt Damon being drilled into an exosuit. The film has a new poster timed with Comic-Con and it’s a bit of a doozy. The director rolled cameras in Johannesburg at the end of last year, with a cast that includes Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Ninja, Yolandi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo and Brandon Auret, who is voicing the main character. The metallic dude it’s named for is shaping up to be the cutest ‘droid since Marvin, albeit in a grungy, lo-fi way.Chappie, penned by Blomkamp and his old District 9 co-writer Terri Tatchell, »
The Ripley actress, who will be joined by her fellow co-stars for Alien Isolation story Dlc, discusses the game and its environment in the new video from Sega.
Weaver says that while video game developers aren't film directors, they know that people want to be immersed in the world of Alien.
"It's not a really pleasant world for humans to be in," admits Weaver. "And it certainly becomes a lot more unpleasant when the alien is in your midst."
The game's primary narrative revolves around Ripley's daughter Amanda. Amanda Ripley's mission takes her to a remote trading station 15 years after the events of the first Alien film as she attempts to track down the flight recorder of her mother's ship. »

Sega's Alien: Isolation video game will be a big draw at Comic-Con starting today, what with a giant Alien egg on the show floor that attendees willing to brave the line will be able to step into to demo the game. Today is also the first time that Alien: Isolation will be playable following the surprising news that the film's original cast would be lending their voices to their characters, and you would only be able to experience this at launch by pre-ordering the game to access the 'Crew Expendable' and 'Last Survivor' modes via Dlc.
Pre-orders for Alien: Isolation are still top priority at Sega and as Comic-Con begins, they've released a new Alien: Isolation cast trailer featuring Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Tom Skerritt (Dallas) and Yaphet Kotto (Parker) talking about returning to those roles after so many years. »
Sega’s forthcoming Alien: Isolation tells an original story about Amanda Ripley (briefly mentioned in Aliens) set 15 years after the first film. But Amanda is about to be overshadowed by her very famous mother: Sigourney Weaver will play Ellen Ripley for the first time since 1997’s Alien: Resurrection—albeit in digital form—in two pieces of downloadable content for the game.

“It looks like we’ll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I’m hearing,” Aykroyd told Carson Daly during his interview. “It should be good.”
It should be noted that is not the first time Aykroyd has said the movie is going into production, so perhaps take this one with a pinch of salt.
Here’s the video clip so you can see for yourself:
Ghostbusters 3 has been written by Ethan Cohen (Men in Black 3) but no director has been named, though Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) is rumoured to be the front runner. Aykroyd is to return as Ray Stanz »

A Facebook page for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie, a sci-fi comedy starring fellow South Africans Ninja and ¥o-Landi Vi$$er of Die Antwoord as themselves and frequent Blomkamp collaborator Sharlto Copley (Wikus in District 9 and Kruger in Elysium) as the titular android Chappie, has gone live and indicates we can expect the film in 2015. Die Antwoord separately posted the first image of Chappie himself. Chappie's local South African cast is fleshed out with some big international names, not least of which are Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, and Dev Patel.After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot....

This has promise. The images have a dirty, gritty feel to them, which I expect from Blomkamp, and the premise (from an earlier Sony press release) has me plenty curious:
Chappie tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes. The film will star Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, with Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and members of rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, as the two gangsters.
At any rate, here's some of the images that our Dread crew managed to snap live from the Sdcc '14 floor.

Little Lost Robot Chappie is making his presence well known down at the San Diego convention center, with Comic-Con preview night just hours away from kick-starting this epic event. Yesterday, we got our first look at this artistic prodigy in a banner spotted within the halls of ground zero. Now we get a better look at Chappie to discover he has some nifty graphitti skills and a pretty clear sense of who his family is. From District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, this will serve as his follow up to last year's Elysium.
After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot.
There will be lots of sci-fi at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International.
“The Hangover” actress Sondra Currie will be on location to pitch a new sci-fi television series “Ganymede Pan” to fans and others attending the convention. Currie is best known as Alan’s mother in all three “Hangover” movies.
Currie spoke with in detail about the premise of the television and her plans for the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con International.
Read the interview below.
Latino-Review: Tell me more about this show “Ganymede Pan.” I’ve seen the trailer. What is this science-fiction television show you’re trying to promote?
Sondra Currie: It’s a situation in which the universe is in grave danger. I play General Tai. She is the nemesis on the show. There’s a psychotropic substance or we call it a “trope. »

"He also happens to be a robot." Meet Chappie, a boy kidnapped by criminals who becomes an adopted son of a "strange and dysfunctional family". The first promo banner for Neill Blomkamp's third film, Chappie, has been found inside of the halls of Comic-Con 2014 in San Diego. The Con has been launching grounds for Blomkamp's last two sci-fi creations, Elysium and District 9, and while Sony doesn't have his latest film listed on any panels yet, it will be getting a reveal here as indicated by this banner. It's a very wide promo banner positioned right above the entrance doors, showing the robot drawing child-like sketches on a wall. Sharlto Copley stars as Chappie, joined by Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Dev Patel. Photos below. Here are some of our own photos of the banner on display inside the convention center at Comic-Con 2014: More close-up of the actual »

We don’t know very much about Chappie, Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi follow-up to the instant classic District 9 and the somewhat underwhelming Elysium, but Comic-Con is giving us our first look at the movie with an intriguing poster. Collider provided the images, which you can check out below, shooting the dimly lit poster from multiple angles so as to give us the best possible idea of what it looks like.
Chappie centers on a robot with artificial intelligence (played by Sharlto Copley) who is kidnapped by two gangsters. Producer Simon Kinberg has tantalizingly referred to it as “the most provocative studio movie you’ll likely ever see,” though we won’t find out whether that’s actually the case for a little while. The poster is still fascinating, depicting the titular robot drawing a cartoon of his adopted family (doesn’t look like his father is a very nurturing figure though, »
