In 1979 Ridley Scott combined, sci-fi, suspense, and a the nightmares of H. R. Giger  to create the groundbreaking film Alien. Seven years later James Cameron doubled down, giving us the sci-fi, action thriller, Aliens. After these two films Alien(s) fans eagerly awaited the next bold, innovative pivot, they would see in this franchise. They’re still kind of waiting. This August the folks at 21st Century Fox (recently consumed alive by Disney) take another turn at bat with, Aliens: Romulus, which reportedly falls in between the two watchable films. The Regular Joe’s take a look at the trailer and chart their hopes and fears. In Aliens, Carter Burke was such a perfect soulless, corporate hack that audiences cheered when he died horribly. Recently Marvel, the current license holder for the Aliens comics, released a “What if Carter Burke had lived? story. Because they continue to cling for hope that something good will float to the surface in the oily, stagnant pool of the Alien franchise the Joes read it and let you know what they think. There’s also the usual, Random Topics and a round of What’s in the Box. Thanks for listening?
