Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
Now, I have a lot of problems with Alien 3, but most of them are focused on the story elements… hell, even the story’s okay, it’s the base concept that I have a problem with. By killing Hicks and Newt off screen it almost negates ALIENS as a film. All the themes about motherhood and companionship are rendered nil by the first 2 minutes of Alien 3.
David Fincher’s execution of the story and his direction of the actors are top notch, but since the story is flawed at its very foundation, almost a lugie in the face of people who loved Aliens, there’s not much he can do.
I wonder what an Alien sequel directed by the Fincher of today would look like. Think about it… Fincher, who can’t be bullied by a studio trying to protect its franchise, taking on a genre film with as rich potential as the Alien series... Drooooooollll…
My misgivings about the film aside, this BTS pic is killer. Love it to death. Consider it a preview of the all horror and monster-themed October run of BtSPotD comin’ up!
Here’s the pic! Enjoy!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic gets its ass to Mars.
