All aliens, please proceed to level one . . .

And bite these movie-makers on the butt.

All news related to the upcoming Alien prequel has to be taken with a grain of salt, because every time news breaks, the folks associated with the movie are quick to come out and refute it. So you can't believe everything you hear. But here's the latest news, true or not . . . and like it or not.

Will Charlize Theron Kick Butt in Ridley Scott's Prequel?

I hope not. Don't get me wrong, I like Charlize Theron. I just can't see her in the gritty, hard-as-nails world of Alien.

And then of course, there's the news that it's not really going to be a prequel after all, but a mostly-new movie:

I am NOT happy. I was really hoping to see the prequel and learn more about the big space jockey from the first movie. I thought I might get to learn more about the xenomorphs and where they came from. I thought I was going to be getting another chapter of my beloved Alien series. Now I don't know what I'm going to get. I don't want unique, large, and provocative; I want to see more Xenomorphs dripping acid blood and poking at people w/ their second set of teeth. I want more face-huggers jumping out of dark corners and wrapping their segmented tails around throats.

Why, oh why, can't we just have that? Why must we have "epic?" Every movie doesn't have to be Avatar, thank you very much.

Ok. Rant over. Maybe I'll get lucky and someone will come out and brand this latest news as mere rumor (fingers crossed).
