New Sequel[edit]

The events of both Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection will be ignored by the upcoming sequel to Aliens, which will be directed by Neill Blomkamp.[1] AdamDeanHall (talk) 23:42, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Note - Variety: New ‘Alien’ Won’t Undo ‘Alien 3′ or ‘Resurrection,’ Director Neill Blomkamp Says - Gothicfilm (talk) 22:41, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Further Note - Yes, it will, as of SDCC 2016. [1] But unfortunately, Fox put a hold on Alien 5 in favor of Covenant, which comes out in 2017. DeeJaye6 (talk) 14:11, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

critique of film on logic/science basis . . .[edit]

While forums and a couple of off-comments in fan articles have mentioned some of the problems with the story (the aliens bending and breaking thru inch-thick steel, a power plant exploding like a thermonuclear weapon, etc.), has a Reliable Source been written yet on these issues? That would make a good addition to the article - without challenging the artistic license for making an entertaining story. (talk) 03:55, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Per WP:FILMHIST, " If ample coverage from secondary sources exists about a film's historical or scientific accuracy, editors can pursue a sub-topic sharing such coverage in a section titled "Historical accuracy" or "Scientific accuracy" ("accuracy" being applied as neutral terminology).". In other words, if you can find sources outside fan articles and message boards, be my guest. Andrzejbanas (talk) 04:16, 16 December 2016 (UTC)
