The Fine Print: No purchase necessary. Contest is only available to residents of the continental USA. DFAT staff and family are not eligible to win. Winners will be selected based on their creativity not randomly.
Maybe the next Alien film can go back to what attracted people in the first place, the scare/fright. Have it take place on a space station above Earth.
The plot should be Aliens in midevil times. Knights fighting Aliens would make a epic film!
I’ve always been a huge fan of people going back to Medieval times! I love this idea!
So, I have always wanted a true sequel to Aliens. Here is my plot:
After the events of Aliens, the USCM find the US Sulaco adrift in space, and decide to investigate after reading seismic charts from the reactor explosion on LV426. This investigation is also done by secret corporations wishing to find out what destroyed much of LV426 and the well armed Colonial Marines. The USCM, not wanting the public to know of their investigation, seek help from Weyland Yutani and its private military. In time the USCM and Weyland Yutani set out to the now quarantined planet. All of this is done under heavy protest by the now imprisoned Ripley. After reaching the planet both crews begin to question what it is, if anything, they are investigating. While stationed on the planet the crew realizes that radiation levels are deadly without proper equipment. They then send word back to the Sulaco in orbit but receive no response. An intense storm has severed communication and travel off the planet. The crews discover that the radiation is seeping into the makeshift station they have prepared. The seismic charts they had read earlier suggests there may be tunnels or a cavernous network some ways out from their station. However, to reach the entrance they have to permanently abandon their station, cause travel in the radiation multiple times would be lethal. Data records from the colonists suggest the tunnels are man made, and traversable to a less radiated part of the area where off world communications may be possible. Once in the tunnels the crew realizes they are not the only ones seeking refuge from the radiation. Alien 3, thanks guys
Very very interesting. This actually seems very plausible and great. I could see this being turned into a movie or one of the comics. Good stuff!
Ripley and crew see a building in the distance the’re knocked out by soldiers in stealth and are taken to a secret base . its a cloning facility they get rip’s dna and grow more aliens from the blood . ripley escapes and realeses aliens she becomes more intune with alien abilities (wall climbing , high jumping ,communicating with other aliens) she makes a massacre . she finds clones of newt and all marines so she gains her humanity back saves the crew and all marine clones fin . plot twist xenos escape
Always gotta have that plot twist. Great idea!
The plot of the movie starts when Amanda Ripley sees two men looking for her while she was on earth, she landed earlier with call and two other people, they found a city that was completely deserted but had supplies for comforted survival. When the two men didn’t find them, Ripley overhears them get orders to turn around and go to xeno prime, remembering the space jockey, Ripley finds the need to destroy the eggs before the eggs get on board. Ripley then decides to get on-board their ship with call (who wasn’t so enthusiastic about it) so they could stop the alien breeding, when the ship lands they realize it was a trap and they were on the space station. The people there captured her and kept call prisoner. With a sample of her blood they use the DNA to recreate a xeomorph, they only bred three xenomorphs because of her unstable blood. The three xenomorphs were stronger than any reported before and one of them seemed to be smarter than the others, later comes a team, ( the remnants of the Weiland Utani team) they decided to take the xenomorph cargo with them, they had the intention of controlling xenomorphs and allowing them to scout where they thought was too dangerous for mankind. Ripley knew they couldn’t tame xenomorphs.. she knew they failed over and over again, she understood that no technology or type of manner could tame a xenomorph and she knew that weylad Utani had no limits when it came to xenomorphs, Amanda used her blood to find a way out of her cell, he being the most powerful human there knocked out any one who stood in her way. She freed call and took a ship that followed the Weyland Utani one. As the ship landed she found herself another way in the space station, she knew to stay hidden for she was a high profile in the Weyland Utani foundation, call on the other hand fitted in and gave Amanda all the info needed to find the xenomorphs, the xenomorphs didn’t see her as a friendly like before so she devised a plan to kill them. When she tried setting that plan into motion she knocked out one of their working women and took their uniforms. When she saw the lab empty she knew something was amiss, they were moving the aliens. One which seemed to be in some sort of hibernating mode woke up and killed its captors as a praetorian. The alarms went off as Ripley sensed them escaping. They went in a rampage of destruction, escape pods flew from the ship but most got killed until there was no one left, Amanda sent call away (unwillingly) and decided to kill the aliens herself, she took a flame thrower and went offensive, she wasn’t human anymore so she knew her capabilities, she killed two of the with hardship and set the ship to self destruct while the praetorian transformed into a queen, she took an escape pod and left with call.
Alright then, AHEM:
2 years after the events of alien vs predator requiem………..
After ms. yutani uses the confiscated arm cannon originally used by the predator, she harnesses its technology to make super human soldiers. Meanwhile, the entire U.S.A is in an uproar over the nuking of the small town of Gunnison, Colorado. Riots, murders, threats against the government, no one is safe. The president then organizes a speech to calm the country down.
“Fellow americans, this country has been through tremendous times lately, but I promise you, we will get through this, by go-”
The president is shot in the head by a sniper. The crowd panics as it turns into an all out brawl, followed by brutal slaughters. Kids crying as they see the horrific event taking place. ms. yutani then somehow steps up to become president after the grief, and orders a civil war between two factions of the U.S., the rebels, and the military. This came to be known as the the second civil war, eventually becoming World war 3, as other countries become involved……
Meanwhile, a few aliens had survived the nuke blast of gunnison, and through the radiation from it, have evolved. They are now as intelligent as the predators, and have been slaughtering the humans to try and take over earth.
The story follows rebel Dallas Howard, as he leads a small faction of the rebels to find the the “cure”, which will redeem humanity. On the journey, they fight against the superhuman soldiers as well as the evolved aliens, and eventually the cure is the arm cannon, which has been manifested into a god like aura, caused by ms. yutani, and controls the military. The predator from the previous movie has also survived, and escaped the facility he was in and teams up with the rebels in order to stop the chaos.
