With a franchise that's been around as long as "Alien," there's a lot of backstory to work through. But the long and short of it is still aliens killing humans in very large numbers.
As IGN's Daniel Krupa put it: "Director Ridley Scott must've heard the screams of frustration as 'Alien' fans left theaters after watching 'Prometheus.' ... While 'Alien: Covenant' continues to pose new questions about the origins of the classic monster, unlike 'Prometheus,' it provides satisfying answers."
After creating the iconic original "Alien" in 1979, Ridley Scott took a solid 30-year break from the franchise. But now that he's back in the director's chair, he seems to want to hold on to his Xenomorph a little tighter this time.
In a recent interview, he said: "'Star Wars' is still running. I mean, the 'Alien' franchise should be [makes blow-up motion] into 'War of the Worlds' now. That's where I'm going."
Well, if "Star Wars" can recover from the prequels, surely we can all forget "Alien vs. Predator."
