When Alien first hit the screens it was something science fiction fans would soon come to consider an instant classic. It had everything a great film should have and more. There was a great plot, incredible special effects that still hold up well to this day, and unsurpassed talent on both sides of the camera. This was confirmed by both the numerous awards the film garnered and the number of tickets sold.
That success spawned a number of novels, video games, comic books, toys, and several follow-up films. It also launched Sigourney Weaver’s acting career by providing her with her first leading role as a smart, tough woman who could hold her own against the universe’s worst. While the sequels and prequels that followed the original gave us more of everyone’s favorite xenomorph, there were really no answers to the whole origin mystery.
We were given almost no information about the alien spacecraft where all those face hugger eggs were found, who or what the “space jockey” was, or why it ended up crashed on a desolate planet with a ton of those infamous eggs. For 33 years we waited (im)patiently for answers and we did a lot of speculating, but now it finally looks like the answers will be given to us on a grand scale befitting the greatness of the film that started it all.
