For years, fans have been rallying for a proper video game based on the Alien film franchise, which revolutionized the sci-fi genre and scared the pants off of generations of fans. While Aliens: Colonial Marines was a slap in the face with a thumbtack taped to the palm, us scorned fans have our hopes up for the upcoming Alien: Isolation. Following Ripley’s daughter Amanda, the game promises to deliver a survival-horror experience on par with the original film’s intensely terrifying game of cat-and-mouse.
As if developers Creative Assembly weren’t spoiling fans enough already, they’ve just announced that Sigourney Weaver will be reprising her role as Ellen Ripley for a Dlc chapter that follows the crew of the Nostromo during their first encounter with the Xenomorph.

You are hiding in a locker and keep telling yourself, "Breathe slow, breathe slow." But it’s hard to stay calm when all you can see is a gigantic tail laboring across the floor in front of you, attached to a body that craves your mortal coil with a need only known by crackheads at 6 am.
If this scene from the upcoming horror game Alien: Isolation doesn’t sound inviting enough, Sega announced a huge pre-order bonus for the upcoming title.
Pre-ordering Alien: Isolation will grant players access to two downloadable missions that will allow them to relive two classic scenes from the film and feature voice acting and likenesses of the film’s original actors. Gamers can look forward to seeing Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker), Ian Holm (Ash), and Ripley herself, Golden Globe winner Sigourney Weaver.

After a very disappointing collaboration with novelist Cormac McCarthy on The Counsellor last year, Ridley Scott is back to his epic ways of film-making with Exodus: Gods And Kings. Starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, the film is based on the exodus of The Israelites from Egypt led by Moses, and it also relates to The Old Testament Book Of Exodus.
From what the trailer shows, Ridley Scott seems to be on very firm ground as he dramatises the battle between Moses and Ramses II. Christian Bale dons an impressive beard as he plays Moses, while The Great Gatsby’s Joel Edgerton makes an astonishing transformation as Ramses II and with no Whitney Huston-esque soundtrack in sight though like 1998′s The Prince Of Egypt – which is probably a good thing!
Here’s that trailer and scroll down for the posters – which may need a little work before the film is »

We've still not quite forgiven video game publisher Sega (and developer Gearbox) for the absolutely dreadful Aliens sequel Aliens: Colonial Marines, but the company is doing its best to win us back into the Xenomorph video game fold with today’s news. Sega has revealed that the latest title in the series, Alien: Isolation, will feature not only the voice talents of Sigourney Weaver, but also her Alien costars Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton and Veronica Cartwright. That’s most of the original film’s cast, minus Ian Holm, who will not be back. For an Alien geek, this is pretty awesome news. While the main game follows Ellen’s daughter, Amanda, as she searches for her mother 15 years after the events in the original film...

Alien: Isolation may focus on Ripley’s daughter, but Sega and 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.
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. Details on the missions and how you can get them are included below, along with the new trailer and two screenshots:
“San Francisco & London – July 9, 2014 – Sega® of America, Inc., Sega® Europe, Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products today announced exclusive pre-order bonus content for Alien: Isolation™, featuring the vocal talent and likenesses of key cast members of the 1979 Ridley Scott masterpiece, Alien.

Sega of America announced today that their upcoming video game Alien: Isolation will feature two bonus missions that include original Alien cast members Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker) voicing their characters in two bonus missions. Ian Holm's likeness was used for Ash, but he did not provide the voice for this character. A new pre-order trailer has been released, giving fans the first look at these video game versions of the Nostromo crew in action, and you can also check out images from the game, and find out what Sigourney Weaver thinks about returning to voice Ripley.
During an interview with Associated Press, Sigourney Weaver reveals how quickly it came together for her return as Ripley.
"It was eerie how quickly it happened. Honestly. I had to start with this sort of sign-off, 'This is Lieutenant Ripley of the starship Nostromo. »
Take a look at the Red Sea parting! Listen to the cover of Simple Minds' "Belfast Child!" It's all glorious!
In this adaptation, Christian Bale stars as Moses who dukes it out with Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton barely recognizable) so he can free the slaves and escape Egypt's plagues. So "Ten Commandments" here we come! But, according to Bale, there will be shocking stuff so Scott and company may be a bit liberal in adding or subtracting passages from the bible. Yup, just like "Noah. »
Sigourney Weaver is playing Ripley again — or, more precisely, she’s remaking her first turn as Ripley. The cast members from Ridley Scott’s Alien (minus Ian Holm and John Hurt) are reprising their roles for a downloadable content (Dlc) expansion for the forthcoming game Alien: Isolation. So we’ll hear Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean […]

Sigourney Weaver is to reprise her signature role as Ellen Ripley – albeit in video game form – with the actress set to reunite with the cast of Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic for a pre-order bonus pack for the upcoming Alien: Isolation. Weaver will be joined by Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronic Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett) and Yaphet Kotto (Parker), all of whom have recorded new dialogue for the game and will have their likenesses appear in bonus levels. Here’s a shot of the crew of the Nostromo…
The original crew will feature in two missions: ‘Crew Expendable’, which takes place after the death of Brett and gives gamers the choice of playing as Ripley, Dallas or Parker; and ‘Last Survivor’, which Ripley has to activate the self-destruct on the ship and make it to the Narcissus in order to escape the alien.

The previous Alien game, Aliens: Colonial Marines was, to put it lightly, reviled to the point of people suing the developers for making a game so incredibly terrible. The new Alien game, Alien: Isolation, looks like a vast improvement by taking the popular sci-fi series away from a first-person shooter and moving it to a first-person survival horror game. Those who pre-order Alien: Isolation will get a pretty cool bonus: the ability to play through two scenes from Ridley Scott's Alien, and they will have the authenticity of including voice work from actors Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), and Yaphet Kotto (Parker). Ash will still look like Ian Holm, but it will be a sound-alike. Damn androids. Hit the jump to check out the pre-order trailer and the press release, which details the two scenes from Alien »

2014 is the year of the Bible. After March’s Flood tale Noah saw a drenched Russell Crowe and Emma Watson fight for survival, another story from the Old Testament is parting the Red Sea and heading to theatres in December.
Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings sees Christian Bale as Moses squaring off against his adopted brother Ramses played by an unrecognizable Joel Edgerton. The 3D film covers the familiar story of the brothers-turned-enemies as Moses rises up against the Pharaoh Ramses in his quest to set 600,000 slaves free while the deadly plagues rain down on Egypt.
Edgerton gives his best Yul Brenner impression while a bearded Bale shows he’s adept at riding a horse and wielding a sword in the heat of battle. The trailer certainly gives new meaning to the term “epic” and is exactly what we have come to expect from the director of Gladiator and Prometheus. »

On the Internet, fans of Ridley Scott's Alien will scream at today's news of the entire original film cast joining Sega's Alien: Isolation video game for a pair of Dlc missions first obtainable by carefully the right edition of the game from the right retailer.
Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), Yaphet Kotto (Parker) and Ian Holm (Ash) are all returning to voice their iconic Sci-Fi characters in Alien: Isolation. For Weaver, this marks the first time she has returned to the role of Ripley in 17 years.
The first Alien: Isolation Dlc with the original Alien cast is titled Crew Expendable. In this mission, Brett has just been munched by the Alien and players will take control of Ripley, Dallas or Parker. The objective is to coordinate with Lambert and Ash and explore the Nostromo ship from top to bottom, »
Are you ready for some biblically apocalyptic business to go down? Christian Bale is starring as Moses in Ridley Scott's epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, and he is looking good in the first trailer. He's up against his childhood friend the Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton, sporting a lot of eyeliner) in the battle to free Egyptian slaves. If you've heard anything about Moses, you know the story doesn't end there. It's Moses's job to rally a ton of people to flee before the plagues arrive, meaning he has some locusts to swat and a Red Sea to part. I'm digging the special effects here, and I can't wait to see Aaron Paul as Joshua, plus more of Sigourney Weaver. The movie opens Dec. 12, and take a look at the trailer now.

The game itself is set fifteen years after the events of the original film. Ellen Ripley’s now adult daughter Amanda sets out in search of the truth behind her mother's disappearance. You play as Amanda for much of the game.
Today though, Twentieth Century Fox, Sega, and The Creative Assembly have revealed that pre-orders for 'The Nostromo Edition' of the game includes bonus missions which allow players to recreate key scenes from the film.
Sigourney Weaver (Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett) and Yaphet Kotto (Parker) are all set to reprise their roles in the game. Events in these missions are set after Kane's death (so John Hurt isn't involved), while a voice actor will replace Ian Holm as Ash. »

Ridley Scott is channeling Cecil B. DeMille in this first trailer for "Exodus: Gods and Kings," the Old Testament saga about Moses and Rhamses. It looks epic, if epic weren't a word rendered nearly meaningless from use by overenthusiastic bloggers and/or "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," but what else can you say about the story of Moses leading the slaves out of Egypt?
The budget for spray tanning Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton alone must have been astronomical! Edgerton is barely recognizable as a sort of 20th century Yul Brynner in his get-up, because if you want to cast someone who looks like an Egyptian king, it makes total sense to cast a white Australian dude. At least Bale could sort of pass for Semitic. (In any case, he'd be welcome at our synagogue any day.) In any case, Sigourney Weaver looks awesome and terrifying as Queen Tuya, a »

Sigourney Weaver and other original cast members are coming back to their classic roles in the original Alien film, for a pair of bonus missions in the upcoming Alien: Isolation game.

Come inside to check out all the details, some new screenshots of the cast in the game, and even a new trailer!
My feelings on pre-ordering video games are fairly well known...I don't like it. I think it's a ridiculous practice and the only times I've ever done so, is when something cool is offered as a bonus. Even then, I still dont' really like it and it's a strategy I wish the gaming industry would drop. Alas, that's not likely to happen, »

Each character offers a slightly different perspective of the events.
Last Survivor puts players in control of Ripley in the finale of the film, when she must reach the escape pod as the Nostromo's self-destruct sequence counts down.
Only Ian Holm will not return in the Dlc, with his character Ash voiced by a sound-alike.
"It was unforgettable when Sigourney came in and started being Ellen Ripley again," said director Alistair Hope. "It was quite special.
"The real joy was having Sigourney say, »
