Some may not know it as he isnt credited but writer Peter Briggs was one of the very first to work on the story for Alien vs. Predator. Paul W.S. Anderson who directed the picture would eventually tackle the final screenplay. Most of those involved in the project most likely hold some small special place in their hearts for the movie. And that seems to be exactly why Briggs took some offense to remarks recently made by Sigourney Weaver who expressed a desire to have her character killed in Alien 3 after learning of plans to shoot Alien vs Predator. »
Appearing at London Comic Con last week, Sigourney Weaver spoke about her history with Fox's "Alien" franchise and seemingly suggested that Fox's early plans to make "Alien vs. Predator" back before "Alien 3" in 1993, was what caused Ridley Scott to drop out of the project and what made her decide to kill off the Ellen Ripley character.
Now Peter Briggs, who penned the original "Alien vs. Predator" spec script back in 1991 (but is uncredited on the final 2004 film) has responded to the criticism in a letter to Bloody Disgusting. Briggs penned a draft which was at Fox for over a decade until Paul W.S. Anderson came onto the movie and did his own version, and says that the third "Alien" began filming almost a year before his spec script even arrived at the studio:
"Maybe they were in a panic about 'Alien 3'... I have no idea. And so when »

Earlier this week, Sigourney Weaver dropped some truth bombs when she said that when she learned about Fox's plans to make "Alien vs. Predator," that's when two things happened: Ridley Scott dropped out of directing "Alien 3," and she decided to get killed off. However, Peter Briggs, who wrote the spec script for the project in 1991 (he was not credited on the finished film released in 2004), has responded to Weaver's criticism. In a lengthy statement to Bloody Disgusting, Briggs make it clear that his draft of "Alien vs. Predator" was his first project for 20th Century Fox, and his first professional sale. But he says it was so well received it launched his career (he's a co-writer on "Hellboy") and remained Fox's only draft of the movie until Paul W.S. Anderson came along and actually made his version over a decade later. He breaks down the timelines of how everything »

Ridley Scott.s 1979 sci-fi film Alien is one of the scariest movies ever made. However, the most recent installments of the franchise, Alien vs. Predator and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, didn.t exactly set the world on fire. One individual they failed to impress is series star Sigourney Weaver, who is not a fan. In fact, AvP is one of the reasons her character, Ellen Ripley, one of cinema.s greatest badasses, dies in Alien 3. Talking to Radio Times at the London Film and Comic Con, she was asked whether or not it was her decision that Ripley was killed off in Alien 3, to which she replied: Well, yes . because I heard that Fox was gonna do Alien vs. Predator. Which really depressed me because I was very proud of the movies. Though Alien vs. Predator didn.t actually materialize until 2004 (Alien 3 showed up in 1992), Paul W.S. Anderson, »
It’s a common complaint from comic book fans whenever the first images of their favourite characters from a new movie are released: “they don’t look like the comics”.
Even going back as far as Bryan Singer’s X-Men, there were those in the comic book community who bemoaned the fact Wolverine was not in the classic yellow suit, or that Cyclops wasn’t clad in blue, or Storm wasn’t in white. Daredevil’s suit looks like it’s left over from a bondage party, Thor isn’t wearing his trademark helmet, Superman is missing his red panties. The list goes on.
But what people seem to forget is that these are movie adaptations and interpretations of comic books, not literal translations. And, as such, things are going to change.

After a long delay, it looks like the eagerly-awaited Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is finally ready to get off the ground. Franchise star Milla Jovovich confirms that production prep on the 6th installment of the long-standing series will begin this week in South Africa. She doesn't give an exact start date for shooting to take place, but expect it to be soon. The actress, who has appeared in every single Resident Evil movie, will reprise her role as Alice. And she has shared an instagram photo of her first face cast as effects work gets underway.
It was last August that Milla Jovovich and her husband and director Paul W.S. Anderson announced that Resident Evil: The Final Chapter was getting delayed.

Dakota Fanning plays a heroine on the run from her past and chased by an evil Preacher (Guy Pearce). Harrington will play an outlaw who has a crucial role in this tale of retribution. Paul Anderson, Jack Roth, Carla Juri and Harington's 'Thrones' co-star Carice van Houten also star.
Pattinson had been linked to the role earlier this year at the Berlin Film Festival. This marks the second high profile cast switch on the project as Mia Wasikowska was originally cast in Fanning's role.

An alien craft shaped like an artichoke? A vessel with breasts? Here's our pick of 15 of sci-fi cinema's most eccentric spaceships...
For decades, heroes have crossed the universe in rocket ships and modified light freighters. Aliens have conquered galaxies in disc-shaped craft of varying sizes.
Yes, as long as there's been science fiction on the silver screen, spaceships have captured our imagination, from the matinee serials of the 30s to the sci-fi blockbusters of the present.
We all have our own idea of what a great spaceship should look like. For some, it's Han Solo's fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon. For others, it's the more graceful USS Enterprise, or maybe the utilitarian craft of 2001: A Space Odyssey. But what about cinema's more unusual, outlandish spaceships? The ramshackle ones, the anachronistic ones, the ones that look a bit rude, or just plain scary? Those are »
While most mainstream cinephiles worship at the altar of that other, similarly-named filmmaker, vulgar auteurists are generally more apt to find meaning and substance in the work of Paul W.S. Anderson. For the uninitiated, Anderson is a mainstream genre filmmaker best known for the Resident Evil series, of which he has directed three entries. He made his debut in 1994 with the controversial Shopping; his last film was 2014’s Pompeii. Occasional Sos contributor and up-and-coming film scholar Molly Faust has put together a 15-minute video essay that examines Anderson’s visual motifs and submerged themes, using clips from across his entire career to piece together a convincing throughline. Check it out below:

Vulgar auteurism enjoyed its moment of notoriety, launched briefly into the critical consciousness, and now it has receded from view as a bit of silly marginalia. But I wanted to bring it up here because I think it offers a useful illustration of the problems we face when talking about a director like Paul W.S. Anderson(Shopping, Mortal Kombat, etc.)—a director who for one reason or another found himself at the very center of the V.A. discussion. »
