THE PREPOSTEROUS BOLLOX OF THE SITUATION

A collection of stuff, things, nonsense, rants, raves, pretties, sillies, and gee-gaws from Rev. Hugo Nebula, Ordained Minister of the Church of the SubGenius. (And boobs. Sometimes there are boobs. Just like in real life.) Thank you for reading.

Blade Runner - The Aquarelle Edition (by Anders Ramsell)

(via io9)

Natalie Dormer and Michael Fassbender in The Counselor (x)

""Alcon—they’re the ones that own it and apparently they have Ridley to direct it — and when I met with them they didn’t make any offer-plans to include me. And when I called Ridley Scott’s office, he doesn’t call me back. So I guess they’re going to go, like, prequel or…I don’t know what they’re going to do. But my official opinion is that, if they don’t include me in it, everybody should boycott it. Because it’s stupid not to have me in it…"

I’m already boycotting the Blade Runner sequel because it will be shit, but I may as well do it on the side of Sean Young, because she’s far more bugshit than Ridley Scott.

"This animation is made of 3285 aquarelle paintings and form the very beginning of my paraphrase on the motion picture Blade Runner (1982) by Ridley Scott."

Blade Runner Aquarelle Edition, Part 1 (Teaser) (by andersramsell)

"Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade.

"Whether challenging the ethical boundaries of medicine with nanotechnology or going toe to toe with the Vatican itself on the issue of gene-therapy sterilization, Sir Peter prides himself on his motto, “If we can, we must.” After a three year media blackout, Weyland has finally emerged to reveal where he’s heading next. Wherever that may be, we will most certainly want to follow."

(Conceived and designed by Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof and directed by Luke Scott.

"When, at the end of Alien, Sigourney Weaver says, “This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off,” she’s not telling the whole truth. Because there’s another survivor, curled up with her in the hypersleep capsule. Jones (or Jonesey) the ginger tom.

"Jones serves multiple functions within the Alien storyline: 
1) CATGUFFIN, a pretext for characters to go wandering off on their own.
2) CATPANION, an excuse for Ripley to express herself out loud when she’s otherwise alone.
3) CATSHOCK, a cheap shock tactic in which the cat jumps out unexpectedly.
4) CATSCALLION, a wild card; at the end of the film, the cat might yet be harbouring an alien.

"In short, one cannot overestimate the importance of Jones to Alien. This is his story.”

"I’ve always felt that really good prequels should be original movies… Show me something else which I can’t guess the possible outcome of. There is no suspense in inevitability. So a true prequel should essentially proceed the events of the original film, but be about something entirely different, feature different characters, have an entirely different theme, although it takes place in that same world. That was my fundamental feeling about what this movie wanted to be."

Warner Bros-based financing and production company Alcon Entertainment… co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, in the most significant property acquisition negotiations in the Company’s 13-year history, are in final discussions to secure film, television and ancillary franchise rights to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic 1982 science-fiction thriller Blade Runner.
Warner Bros. press release.
While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place. The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn’t be more pleased to have found the singular tale I’d been searching for, and finally return to this genre that’s so close to my heart.
Ridley Scott, announcing that he’s not making an Alien prequel after all.

"Some concept artwork was recently sent to us from a reader claiming it’s directly related to Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien Prequel. There is no confirmation it is legitimate, but if so we will be asked to remove it, so let’s see; but from first glances this does appear to be Space Jockey concept designs.”

Why, with the advent of CGI - for all its faults and drawbacks - are filmmakers still churning out alien designs based on the same old bipedal, humanoid forms that can be played by a man in a rubber suit?

The adaptation is going to be a four-part BBC1 drama series.

“No director, or directors, have been named, but we do know that Ridley’s Scott Free productions are teaming up with Freemantle, Headline Pictures and Electric Shepherd, the production development watchdog for the Dick estate. Howard Brenton is currently writing the screenplay. His resume as a playwright shows a determined political drive, so I think he’ll really be riding this one home hard.”

Ridley Scott had this to say about it:

[It’s] a joy and a privilege to be back in Dick’s world. I’ve been a lifelong fan. He is the master of creating worlds which not only spark the imagination, but offer deeper commentary on the human condition. Howard is one of Britain’s most highly regarded writers and will bring even more depth to Dick’s classic.
