Gone!

Less than 18 months after he joined Everton as a surprise managerial appointment to succeed Marco Silva, Carlo Ancelotti has abruptly left Goodison Park to return to Real Madrid, the club that sacked him six years ago.

The Blue half of Merseyside was stunned by reports that broke late last night that the Italian was being lined up to replace Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu and events moved quickly today to the point that Ancelotti was confirmed as Real manager this evening.

It leaves Everton having to put their summer transfer plans on hold and scramble to draw up a shortlist of candidates to replace Ancelotti, with the likes of Eddie Howe, David Moyes and Nuno Espirito Santo among the early names being linked.

Zidane's decision to step down at Madrid had been on the cards as the 2020-21 season drew to a close and it sparked rumours that Ancelotti might be among the candidates to replace him, suggestions that the Italian laughed off during his final pre-match press conference of the season ahead of the Manchester City match.

The lure of Madrid proved too much for the 61-year-old, however, and it appears as though firm contact was made with his representatives last Friday, leading to a final agreement today that sees Ancelotti sign a three-year contract at Real which will reportedly be worth less than half per year than he was earning at Everton.

Everton's board of directors were scheduled to hold an emergency meeting this evening to discuss the club's next steps.

“While I have enjoyed being at Everton I have been presented with an unexpected opportunity which I believe is the right move for me and my family at this time,” Ancelotti said once the club confirmed he had left for Madrid.

“I would like to thank the Board of Directors, the players, and the Evertonians for the tremendous support they have all given me during my time at the club.

“I have complete respect for everyone associated with Everton and hope they can achieve the exciting opportunities they have in front of them.”

Ancelotti was hired in December 2019 as the result of an ambitious move by Everton owner Farhad Moshiri with the hope of building a team capable of qualifying for the Champions League within the lifetime of his 4½-year deal.

He tempted James Rodriguez to Goodison with the promise of as much first-team football as he could manage while also driving the acquisition of Allan from his previous club, Napoli.

While Allan is likely to remain on Merseyside, Rodriguez's future is far less clear in the wake of Ancelotti's departure, particularly given his recent injury problems and the fact that he has openly admitted he moved to England to play under his former manager.

Ancelotti stabilised the Toffees' performances in the early months of his tenure before the team's form dropped off again with the resumption of the 2019-20 season following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Citing the need to overhaul the midfield, the decorated boss helped bolster the squad with the signings of James, Allan and Adboulaye Doucouré, acquisitions that sparked a scintillating start to 2020-21.

Everton were the early pace-setters in the Premier League and were still sitting second after Christmas before the season, not to mention the club's European-qualification hopes, was wrecked by a dreadful sequence of results at home in an empty Goodison Park. The Blues ultimately finished 10th after losing 5-0 to City on the final day of the campaign.

While Ancelotti's only full season at Everton was dogged by concerns over the absence of any discernible style of play and an inability to turn around that abysmal home form, he did oversee the club's best away record of the Premier League era with 11 wins on the road.

The hope and expectation was that with another summer to work with Marcel Brands and a first complete season with fans in the grounds, Ancelotti might have been able to lead Everton back to the upper echelons of the English game and to some long-overdue trophy success.

Instead, Moshiri and Brands must go back to square one as they seek to lay more of the foundations on which some stability can be built at a club that is now looking for its sixth manager in the space of five years.

Why has nobody asked the question of would the "Top 6" want him? Oh, hang on, this lot are bigger than any of them, aren't they?

I'd prefer he stayed as we must at some stage have some continuity with an accomplished manager at the helm but if he is to go then Everton should insist on at least the remainder of his contract as compensation and given their rumoured financial position that should be the end of all this talk.

As mentioned on another thread, perhaps his replacement should be that famous No 7 – Bond, James Bond – then we'd all be shaken but not stirred. With "M" - Moshiri, leading and "Q" with his funny ways and gadgets, or is that "K"?

It is all becoming the running joke.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 07:38:55

I think we should change managers every season to satisfy the bloodlust for managers on TW.

We could start with bringing back the Moyesiah (much loved and admired on here), then Sean Dyche, followed by Eddie Howe, Graham Potter etc...

Once we are done with the flavour of the month, usual suspects we could appoint a triumvirate of Hind, Edwards and Tasker to manage the team. After all, this management thingy is a doddle.

Arrivedercci Carlo, if you go, all the best, amigo.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 07:39:00

Looks like a small number rod Everton fans will get what they wish for. I don't think it is any coincidence Eddie Howe did a U-turn at Celtic last week.

Without a big-name manager and European football, the only way we are going to persuade class players to join is paying through the nose to get them. We are going to end up getting relegated within 2 years I think if we get Eddie Howe as manager.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 07:58:47

Not if Ancelotti turns them down Dan, and gets a new longer contract at Everton!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:22:56

No chance! Carlo will not risk his massive Everton pension pot for one season at Madrid, unless he's totally pissed off with our lack of ambition. I wouldn't trust Moshiri to get the right man in anyway, I'd guess it would be big fat Frankie Lampard.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:23:24

Are we allowed yet to wonder out loud who we'd get in his place or is that still considered a bit of a no-no?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:29:54

It's unfortunate Perez doesn't read TW. If he did, he would know that Carlo is finished. He is yesterday's man according to TW football experts. So why would the biggest most demanding football club in the world even consider him as their next manager? It's a fucking mystery.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:32:21

Colin, you’ve missed out some bloke called Steve Cooper from Swansea. Also should Carlo go, I say sack the new manager already, after all he’s shite!

Good point Barry. That is clearly beyond me. Good enough for Real Madrid, but not good enough for us. It definitely is a mystery.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:42:25

Why not, Brian 54. I'll start the ball rolling; Enzo Nomarkoni from Italian third division side FC Pecorino.

He's a dynamic, forward thinking, progressive manager who will provide Tom Davies with a football brain, Alex fucking Iwobi with an iota of courage, and André ‘lead in his boots' Gomes with an increased spatial awareness and a quicker than sloth-like pace to his game.

After his third-loss-in-a-row start to the season, we can always replace him with our very own, perennial saviour, Big Duncan Ferguson! A man anointed by god himself, Bill Kenwright.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:57:04

Nomarkoni out! Sack him, get rid, plays zombie negative football. Bellendotti from the Italian conference league is who we should bring in. Plays a 2-3-5 formation. Leaves his defence totally exposed, but fuck, can his teams score goals, but ultimately loses most games heavily, but boy, it’s great entertainment!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:59:14

If there is any truth to this, and he knocks Real back, it certainly shows how comitted he is to Everton.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 09:15:29

Rob #58.

Ccan you remember when 2-3-5 used to be the only formation there was? Inside forwards, left-half and right-half. Them were the days!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 09:31:49

Surely Madrid would rather Conte!

If Carlo goes, which I wouldn't blame him for, we should be in the mix for Conte or Sarri. Enough of this talk of Big Dunc.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 09:40:15

Colin, Rob - how about that guy Patrick Grant from The Great British Sewing Bee? Rumour has it he can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 09:44:50

Normally I would just dismiss this as British press speculation but I see the Spanish paper Marca is also reporting this and they are usually very accurate when it comes to anything to do with Real or Barca. Would the lure of going back to Real tempt Carlo? I am sure it would, but Carlo is an honourable man and I believe he would decline the offer.

Should he however go to Real, I dread to think who this club would look to appoint, I guess the same names will be bandied about as before Silva came, never mind Ancelotti: Howe, Dyce and numerous others who have won very little in their careers.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 09:57:22

Let's not forget the newest name TWebbers have recently thrown into the ring. Scott Parker... riding a current crest of a wave having triumphantly taken Fulham out of the top flight!!

And also let's not discard those other faves from over the years on here... Owen Coyle and Alan Pardew. The rich range of potential managerial talent is staggering!!!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 10:11:10

If Real Madrid ask, I think he'll go.

For all their financial concerns, they are still very much an elite club and (true or not) Carlo will see them as a better match for him.

Let's be honest for a minute: Carlo is at Everton because he got the sack from Napoli and we jumped in quick with a lucrative offer – he's not with us for other reasons that get mentioned (project, new stadium, family club etc), although these are no doubt part of the picture. Let's also be honest and admit that we are probably something of an embarrassment at board level and he probably thinks he's dealing with a bunch of amateurs.

Real Madrid may approach Carlo as they see him as a safe pair of hands during a difficult time. I'd personally be gutted if true – not because I think he's doing an amazing job, but more because it would be a shame that we landed a top manager and, for whatever reason, it didn't work out. There's a huge manager merry-go-round unfolding at the elite level so, if he did want out, he'll probably be able to find something else anyway?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 10:18:44

Good comments about Enzo Nomacaroni of Pecorino FC he is is the gratest available at the moment.

I think it’s not Carlo we should be possibly worried about with this decision, it his his wife and daughter, and possibly son, their preferences may tip the balance.

Anyway, it’s good to know we have many other top options like Nomacaroni, Giuseppe Lossalotti etc to replace him.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 10:25:00

Even if Madrid come knocking, I can't see Carlo leaving. Real Madrid have an ageing squad and need a complete rebuild, with pretty much zero budget. Covid and the collapse of the ESL 'project' have hit them hard. It's why Zidane left and it's why Carlo won't go.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 10:35:59

I agree that Real Madrid are aging team, that being said they will no sooner turn it around and win a major trophy than Everton are ever likely to.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 10:57:48

Tony 66, there’s a guy in the third tier of the MSL who’s got a bit of a tasty reputation. Maybe our American cousins can enlighten us more regarding his potential. His name is Chris P Bacon.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:00:22

Brian @ 63. This:

'Normally I would just dismiss this as British press speculation but I see the Spanish paper Marca is also reporting this and they are usually very accurate when it comes to anything to do with Real or Barca.'

Sure about Marca Brian? Check out the following:

Media Sources Rated for Football Rumours

Scores of European media outlets, individual journalists and ex-footballer pundits rated and placed into five different 'reliability tiers'.

Tier one being the highest rated, tier five the lowest with the single sentence description 'Don’t waste your time reading them.'

Marca is placed just one tier above that, tier four, which is described as 'Not to be trusted at all. These companies make money out of ensuring that you read them and they will make up anything to get you to harness advertising revenue.'

Marca shares the tier with such luminaries as Paul Merson, The Sun, The Mirror and Talksport.

Easy money making up and writing football rumours which get picked up and repeated globally, giving the false impression that 'there must be something in it if it's being so widely reported.'


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:02:27

Surely we all agree, after sacking Martinez, Koeman, Allardyce and Silva, that maybe it’s the players, not the manager, who need replacing?!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:12:14

Colin (69), Chris P Bacon, I’ve heard he’s very Smokey, so wouldn’t go a bundle on him!!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:14:59

It annoys me the way some media outlets are reporting on this.
"Real Madrid are considering hiring Ancelotti" etc etc.
There IS the small point of him having a contract with tiny Everton.
Perhaps I'm being over sensitive.
On another note a name I mentioned in an earlier thread is being touted as already lined up to replace Ancelotti, and that's Nuno ex of Wolves.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:33:41

Danny Broderick @71. The elephant in the room. The whale in the pool. Whatever phrase we use it is obvious. We need better players.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:37:03

Give Big Dunc the top job. As long as he consult ToffeeWeb before making his team selection, and tactics discussed here, we will be challenging top 6 for sure.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:43:55

Footy accumulators (solid ITK bunch) are saying Madrid set to name Carlo as new manager in a few hours.

If I had a dog I’d take him out for a walk but as I don’t have one I’ll stay indoors eating my toenails in nervous anticipation.

Now Marca (Twitter) are announcing it! BK to be named as interim manager.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:46:41

Ok,say hes gone.

Whos next on the carousel?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:49:23

wow a lot of reports now on the internet that Ancelotti is to be announced Real Madrid Manager and he has shocked Everton and asked to leave


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:50:05

So next season's El Classico fixtures will see both teams with ex Everton managers at the helm?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:50:35

I wonder why Eddie Howe turned down Celtic, when it looked all done and dusted - hmmm.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:51:49

Germans seem to be in vogue recently. I suppose we could get ourselves one as long as it’s not Klinsmann.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:55:17

Carlo won’t go he loves to watch and admire the iron static men on Crosby beach. Reminds him of our midfield probably.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:56:01

Reports in Spain say Carlo will be announced as real manager this week


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:57:38

Will he take James (and Brands) with him? That is the question


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:00:40

Colin, rumour has it that he wants to take Iwobi with him! :-)


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:02:36

The new manager will come in, have us up and running in no time.
He will turn the second rate players we have into world beaters.
A challenge for top 4 and CL is on the cards next season, but only if Ancelotti goes.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:04:21

Then he goes with my blessings, Derek 🙏. Can you hear the champagne corks popping in the background? There’ll be some sore heads on TW tomorrow.

I wonder if Bill will be in charge of “scouting” the next manager? Gawd help us.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:04:53

this is looking likely now. If it's true we've avoided a likely thirty million pay out in October, and a host of 29 year olds looking to burnish their pensions in the close season.
I am in parts relieved, and appalled. These deals don't just happen out of the blue, he'll have been approached weeks ago. He's treated the club miserably if it's true.
Having said all of that, I'll be delighted to see him out of the door.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:05:38

Colin, another Twitter rumour this week was Carlo and Brands are not on the same page regarding this summer's recruitment so maybe we're stuck with Marcel.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:06:04

Away from the managerial rumour mill for a second, but just read this piece on the Beeb, Danny O'Neill will probably be crestfallen that I have linked it. Football is indeed a cruel mistress. I hope when the final game at Goodison arrives that we are challenging for the title, but I don't think I could handle what happened to Schalke.


Final Day Drama


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:14:06

Andrew, I’m a pragmatist so if he does go he will be replaced by someone else. I’ll be disappointed but clubs go on as does life. The last couple of months have been a huge disappointment so maybe it was Carlo, or maybe it was the players or both, I don’t know.

Hopefully, we will get some compensation for him and (fingers crossed) he is replaced with an even better manager (doubt that) but if people think a dynamic young manager is going to get this lot playing gegenpress then you’re in for a rude awakening.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:15:48

I suppose it depends on your opinion of Carlo.

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:16:32

Lampard/Howe/Nuno or Big Dunc shortlist ?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:21:00

I wondered why Big Sam turned down the WBA job long-term, now we know! Only joking. I'd be pretty annoyed if Carlo upped sticks so soon, if only because he made lots of the right noises, but ultimately like so many others in the game, principles don't seem to apply. However, he hasn't gone yet, and it may be a smokescreen for Madrid, but it would be nice if Carlo and or Everton refuted the rumour as soon as possible.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:23:58

Whoever will work with Big Dunc will get the gig. BK will see to that. I have a feeling it will be Howe.

Kante to Madrid ???


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:25:58

Who'd want to manage this bunch of multi millionaire has beens? There is no passion in the people who manage or play for this great club, Dunc excepted.

We seem to be a good place to feather your pension pot. How many manager changes do we have to make, was Big Sam bothered that the crowd was baying for his blood as he looked down at his expensive gold watch after another shit result? He was sniggering all the way to his villa in the Costa Lotta.

We have to settle for a manager a la Bielsa with a strategy and plan and stick with him. Who? Don't know. Someone who can turn water into wine maybe


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:29:02

Yes Colin 87, let’s hope Bill isn’t involved. His last 2 managerial appointments have brought us regular European football on a shoestring budget and our record Premier League points tally.

Let’s hope it’s down to Moshiri and we get another Koeman / Allardyce / Silva appointment.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:29:26

My monies on Nuno if he goes.

If it's Howe I'm fucking finished with the shit show that is Everton.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:31:36

This guy Nico Chira seems to have an eye for transfers. He thinks it's a done deal. Was that why Bale said he knows where he'll be next year?

https://twitter.com/NicoSchira/status/1399684788806635525?s=19


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:34:39

I'd rather Howe than Nuno myself. Not that either of them are particularly exciting.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:40:19

Well, well, well Carlo seems to be leaving? So much for all the cheap Ancelotti talk about rebuilding the club and the family feeling of walking the dog on Crosby Beach and loving Gormley's statues!

Does he really want to select the first line-up at Bramley Moore and that feeling of belonging to a great project and the restoration of the pride of this wonderfully historic club?

If he goes then there is no hope for anyone in the world of football, just always the bottom line. I am 69 in a few weeks and sadly my cynicism of the modern game can not sink any lower.

If Ancelotti goes after all the talk, who is worth trusting again! So many of you may not be upset and think he is not the man, but whether he is the saviour or not, he would have run out the door and his staure as a decent man has been shattered for me!

I think I will treat myself to a season ticket at AFC Rushden & Diamonds ten minutes walk away.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:41:13

Excellent point Kevin #97.

If Real really want him then he'll probably go - although Real have their worst team in years and are struggling financially (hence needing the superleague). Their best hope is the development of Rodrygo, Reinier, Vinicius, Valverde, Militao and other youngsters which isn't really Ancelotti's bag. So we'll see.

As for replacement's it might be time to reluctantly accept we were never going to spend enough to get the most out of Ancelotti. So someone better able to develop players and get a tune out of crap might be a better fit anyway. Not blessed with lots of obvious options mind you.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:41:44

You must be on cloud 9, Kevin. Have you got your, I ❤️ Moyes t-shirt back on?😄😄

Tomorrow’s headlines will probably be “ Oyston family buy Everton”. That would be so Everton.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:43:12

Would RM have to ay us a nice fat compo if this is true? I think it would be a huge gamble for Carlo. Why would he want this job? RM on their knees financially hence their President geezer pinning so much on the ESL, may be looking at points deduction, Euro penalty and/or fine, ageing squad - and added to which second runs at a job rarely pay off.

If it happens, which I doubt - Sarri? Benitez? If we fancy a German - Klinsmann?, Nuno? Lampard?

Need someone to put a rocket up the arses of our lethargic squad wether it's Carlo, Duncan or someone else.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:48:46

As long as we don't look total shit and clueless at home to Burnley, Sheffield United, etc I don't care who we get if CA goes.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:49:42

If Carlo goes, I demand his successor be sacked immediately!! Ok, within three months then as all of TW demand his sacking as we're not in the top two of the premier league.

Patience awaits no man, or whatever the saying is??


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:54:32

For continuity I'll be sad to see Carlo go. It's clear what player profiles we need this summer, and it would be up to Brands and the club to see if they could meet Ancelotti's expectations.

The flipside to that is that I do have some concerns that Carlo would want to sign more established stars like Ramsay and Pedro (yesterdays link) and that would be at odds with Brands wanting younger long term signings.

If he does leave we should appoint Santo. No compensation, and a very good manager who has proven his qualities as a premier league manager for a number of seasons. Take no notice of Wolves league position last season. He was unlucky losing Jota and Jimenez.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:07:56

Rob @106
I understand that you think that some on TW are negative for the sake of being negative. But isn't it right and proper that some have different views on Everton and whoever is the manager at the time?

I've been looking at some tweets and posts on other sites and there is a growing group of people that seems intent on blaming the 'negative' fans for hounding out previous managers and indeed if Carlo leaves of his own accord, for his departure too.

We appear to live in a society where opposition views are not tolerated because every individual believes that they are right regardless of the quality of arguments put forward by others.

If Carlo leaves, that's football, we move on to the next manager and hope that they make a fist of improving the team.

I do admit that Carlo leaving for Real Madrid will inevitably lead to many 'negative' fans blaming Everton and questioning the ambition of the club and all of the other stuff that they spout, but sometimes things just happen and it will be Everton's response to the events, should they happen, that will be crucial for our future.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:08:34

Rob#106 - maybe Darren will write a piece on our next manager (whoever it may be) before he's appointed, explaining to us all why he'll be a failure?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:12:20

Paul Joyce just confirmed it's happening, and we're going all in on a previous employee currently living down south.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:13:53


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:15:27

oh joy, on twitter a lot of reports say Moyes is top of the list and we are also speaking to Eddie Howe!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:17:45

Given that IF Carlo is the man of integrity that I believe he is, after the stance that he and the club took against the ESL, I would be staggered if he chose to go there.
Big, BIG risk.

Staying and working with the EFC project has got to be more attractive bar getting burgled, the weather and some fans.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:17:55

Carlo Ancelotti is now considered ‘one step away’ from joining Real Madrid. His agents are now working to terminate his current contract with Everton - it’s the last step then the deal will be completed. Ancelotti won’t create any problem on personal terms with Real from Fabrizio Romano


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:18:52

I don't know how much truth is in it but I've just heard Carlo Ancelotti is set to be announced as the new manager of Real Madrid this evening.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:19:07

Haven't read all the posts - so this might already have been mentioned, but, if, as rumoured, Carlo Ancelotti is on salary of £12M pa at Everton and his contract has 2½ years still to run – the compensation if he breaks the contract will amount to over £30M. Since Real Madrid are ostensibly "broke', how will they manage to pay the compensation package?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:20:58

Unbelievable heartbreaking moment For Schalke Barry Hesketh @90.

A great club as I've banged on about many times. Close to my heart. They don't own my heart like Everton, but they are always on my mind.

On my last trip out, February 2020, what was really impressive is what they've done with the old Park Stadion. They were renovating it to be the primary pitch / stadium of the academy. It now sits proudly on top of a slope looking down on the academy training pitches where the youth teams play and train. All of it in the shadow of the new stadium, which itself is impressive. And what an academy that has been over the years.

A great set up, just a shame I will watch them in Bundesliga 2 next season. They'll come back. That support base and passion they have for their club and their city will get them there.

It can't happen twice right? Lightning never strikes twice!!! You done it now; odds on Everton winning the league on the last game at Goodison in the 98th minute?

You distract me!! Back on topic.

We don't need to be changing our manager. Forget who it is / could be / want to be. Get better players and the manager will get better results.

But, whatever happens, Moshiri needs to own this now. It's his thing. Stop listening to the sentimentalists like me. Unlike other walks of life, with Everton I just follow. Lead me to the promised land.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:21:37

Hugh there's a good chance that he and Rodriguez have break clauses allowing them to move on if an established Champions League club calls. So we may well get nowt - or a lot less than £30M anyway.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:22:07

It's that time of year again. More bullshit... if it's true, and I doubt it, my pick would be Lampard. Some good young talent at Chelsea who may follow him.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:24:55

The compensation point is going to be interesting. Cos by rights, we can demand £30M from Real Madrid, which we know they don't have. But if Carlo plays hardball with us, says 'I really want to go, if you don't let me I think it will really affect my motivation going forward' ... ie, "I will stink the place out and you'll have to pay me £30M in October" ... I think we will release him with no compensation (that's what I'd do).


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:26:51

Barry, fully agree that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, be it for the manager of any player. With any player the answer is simple, if he's playing rubbish then he can be dropped. With a manager it's slightly different. Ok he can be sacked, but I don't think Moshiri will be sacking Ancelotti any time soon. He's been with us eighteen months, he inherited a bag of shite, he's played a handful of premier league games in front of home fans, unbeaten in them all by the way, he's had one proper transfer window to try and improve the squad, yet because some fans expected miracles overnight, which unfortunately didn't happen, they want him gone. As I said, Patience awaits no man, and believe me, a gnat has more patience than some on here.

If he resigns and walks away, then that is a different matter!!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:28:24

Real will never be broke. Franco looked after them very well in his will.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:29:16

Robert (118). Quite possibly, you are correct. But, if so, why bother with a contract at all?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:29:37

Kim

I was thinking regarding him wanting ESL teams punished


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:30:08

I wonder if Moshiri and Kenwright take it in turns to appoint the manager of Everton?
BK - Martinez
BK - Royle/Unsworth
FM - Koeman
BK - Unsworth
Both - Allardyce
FM - Silva
BK - Ferguson
FM - Ancelotti

Therefore it's Bill's turn and so we await the return of the Ginger one?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:30:39

We’ll find out soon enough because Carlo will surely make a short statement, today or tomorrow, rubbishing it all. Or sadly confirming he’s moving on.

Robert, Dale I like Lampard too, he is a serial winner with the highest of standards, seems a grounded and positive person who will be driven to succeed . Also, Nuno Espirito is ready to take a step up. Either would be good appointments.

Chris P Bacon , Enzo Macca-Rooney etc are out of our league and pay scale .


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:31:32

If this does come to pass then whoever the next manager is should have written into his contract that he can't buy players over 25 apart from a keeper.

The team needs young, athletic, super fit players with a fair chunk of their career, and their best form, ahead of them and not players for who Everton is a comfortable last hurrah!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:33:25

Lol – why the fuck would Moyes come here?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:33:53

Colin(#69); That Chris P. Bacon has gone to Germany, a club on the Rhined, apparently.

Strong rumour that Bill has lined up a smash and grab raid for Rooney with Dunc as assistant as he has been told he has done well at Derbies.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:36:14

"I want Ancelotti out. A dinosaur who is out of touch with modern day football. Under no circumstances do I want him as manager next season".. . . . . . . . "Cheeky fucker is treating the club shabbily by leaving."

Only on ToffeeWeb


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:37:25

Brian @127
We have a DOF, therefore any incoming manager if we end up needing one, should be told that Brands will bring in the players and it's your job as the manager to manage them. Obviously, there has to be consultation between Brands and the manager, but we can't have any manager dictating which players we sign, particularly in the higher age group, unless of course, we remove the position of DOF, which if a manager like Moyes came in would be probably the only way he'd take us on again.

Coincidentally West Ham is looking for a Director of Football, even if Moyes renews his contract with them.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:37:32

If Moyes is to be considered, then it's clear who is pulling all the strings. Fuck me, I'm surprised Rooney hasn't been mentioned as a possible replacement if the teary eyed one is involved.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:37:49

We are approaching the best day in the Club's history since we won the Cup in 95.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:37:50

Alan, Rooney would be a rasher decision than Chris P. Bacon.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:39:04

Ian, why so provocative mate ?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:39:10

Ian,

You havent jumped off the top balcony stand have you?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:40:21


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:42:03

Thomas, wishful thinking mate!!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:42:30

Need Carlo out asap time is of the essence now.

The huge issue with Carlo and previous appointments is the arsing around early doors none of them grasp the scale of the problem till it bites them on the arse 6 months later. The new guy needs to be briefed that only a handful have potential beyond mid table - Digne, DCL, Mina and perhaps Richarlison and Pickford. It needs resolving asap preferably before the first game of the season.

We need Carlo's decision pronto.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:42:46

This is all a bit shocking to say the least. Carlo going, Moyes coming back if reports are to be believed. Hang on to yer hats!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:43:23

Will it be Bill’s (wet) dream team of Rooney/Ferguson/Cahill? Can he persuade the Moyesiah to return? Is Dave Hickson still alive?

Absolute laughing stock this football club. I’m glad I saw us win things because it won’t be happening again for a long long time.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:43:55

Now Ian’s big moment as it might actually happen- who do you want as manager?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:47:12

Wow, this really seems to have taken off.

I was in two minds about running it, then I saw Lyndon had updated the original rumour – although I can't figure out why it's displaying the original date at the top.

Quite a slap in the face for Everton if he goes, even though I think he has been poor in motivating our players and figuring out tactics that work for them. Not much to ask from such a great man.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:48:22

Can we have a comedy poll pls Michael?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:50:23

Will Mahon (134),

Don't bring me in to this argument. I'm not interested n the job either :)


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:50:35

Decent bet... Lampard to his boyhood club...Moyes back to us with a fistful of knives for the gunfight.

Ffs can it get more depressing


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:51:12

Apparently Everton FC are locked in talks with Carlo to persuade him to stay - what is the point, if he did stay his heart will not be in the job. If someone wants to go let them and get someone in who wants to be there


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:52:05

Big Dunc as the new number 2?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:53:19

If Ancelotti stays, his position will be hugely strengthened and his transfer budget will be increased significantly!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:53:26

If it wasn't true don't you think the club and Carlo himself would have come out and quashed the rumours already.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:57:07

This story even seems to be visible from space, can all the media outlets be wrong ? I am sure we will know in 24 hours.
If it happens then maybe Nuno has been the target all along knowing that Zidane was leaving and Carlo was wanted he left Wolves to bide his time.
I do know this we need a manager who will get the squad fit, organised and where everyone knows their role what is required of them.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:57:53

Marc @147
Totally agree we don't want anyone at the club who would prefer to move elsewhere. I suppose it would be inevitable that the club would try and hold on to Carlo or at least appear to do so.

Everton trying to prevent move


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:58:48

This Fabrizio Romano seems to think it's all completed

Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, here we go! The agreement on the termination of his contract with #EFC is set to be completed, the two clubs are in direct contact then Carlo will re-join Real Madrid.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:59:37

I think it'll be Moyes. Kenwright will speak to Dunc Seamus Baines Unsy and they will all come back saying bring him back. The argument that the players aren't fit, and that we need somebody good in the transfer market, and a safe pair of hands will be made. Bill can now say that he got them Europe last year, unlike Carlo. And I think Moyes would like to move back to Preston (if he ever left) and get out of the way of the Porn Barons.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:00:53

Rumours come and go but some stick like shit to a blanket and eventually prove to be true – such as this rumour.

It will be a sad day for EFC because, despite the lack of success thus far, his name caused us to be linked with the better class of player and the next appointment in that regard will be a step down.

At least if it is the Nuno chap recently of Wolves, he just might get a tune out of Gomes and bring in one or two more of his diamonds such as quality players he has brought over like Jota, Neto and Jiminez. We can live in hope.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:01:11

I'm hearing he's agreed to leave. Staggered to be honest. Thought he had his heart set on a project. Where does that leave us now ? in the mire I guess but whilst I have been proud to have him at our club I've sensed he's somewhat over the hill and we have not improved under him. He's attracted some big names but the football has been woeful at times. WHO'S NEXT ?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:03:16

Barry @152

I do truly believe that we had Carlo at the wrong time, he is not used to managing a club with a few mediocre players. He has always had top players to work with.

I think we should be looking at someone who will get the club in the Top 4 first, something like Rogers has done at Leicester, win something then maybe in a few years time with a better calibre of players look at a manager Carlo's level.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:03:52

It is confirmed. Ancelotti is out. Fabrizio never gets it wrong.
https://twitter.com/FabrizioRomano

James will certainly leave. We are in a mess.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:05:20

Zidane might like the Gormley statues?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:05:34

Looks like Eddie Howe it is then according to a lot of reports - Everton in advanced talks with him.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:06:00

Lampard was a great player but he's done nothing to suggest he's anything other than a very ordinary manager.

Farke, Potter, Dyche are more in the category of managers that genuinely improve players and get a tune out of shit.

Santo has proved he can coach a conveyor belt of Mino Raiola clients to good effect.

Martinez may have matured a bit but probably wants the Spurs job (as will most of the better candidates).

Failing that, probably some nauseating links to Steven Gerrard and, less nauseating, the likes of Ten Haag (Ajax), Amorim (Lisbon) and Galtier (Lille).

None of these look like a great fit - even for those who have a different opinion of Lampard he doesn't really look like an obvious choice. Dyche is probably the best qualified but not really an appealing prospect.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:06:42

Not a chance these wanting the manager out will name his successor. They risk putting themselves up to be pulled if their choice of manager fails.

The new manager will not get us in the Champions League in his first season. The new manager will not win us a trophy in his first season.

Sack him before he gets the job. Save everyone a bit of time.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:07:40

Is this why Eddie Howe turned down the Celtic job?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:07:48

Mark @156, I can't argue with any of that, and I'm a bit surprised Real are so keen to have him. But it is a much better fit for him than Everton.

The main problem for a new manager would be an utterly shit squad, who neither have the quality to control games, nor the energy to get in the faces of the opposition and rattle them.

He'll either have to build a team around Richarlison, or around Tom Davies to get either of those elements. Which is not something that fills me with confidence.

Offer Poch the world, and a big house in Crosby.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:09:22

Our wonderful game is becoming a disheartening fucking soap opera. Bread & Circuses by dint of global business.

Truth is, we can effectively discount differences of opinion on Ancelotti as a manger. Let's say we were flying, and everyone wanted Carlo to stay, so what? Chances are approaches like this would be even more likely to happen.

I have been a little disappointed in Ancelotti in some regard, not in others. There's no certain reading of the future but the probability that things may greatly improve over a period, is higher by a mile with this guy than anyone we've had in recent years.

"Instant" success just isn't a thing without City-type money. What a world we are in where being "Just" a billionaire rather than a multi-billionaire is inadequate to fight on an equal footing. And where the patience and understanding of this fact is equally absent.

Hope we all enjoyed the concepts of stability and continuity in our clubs/sport, because they've gone, expunged from the lexicon by global corporate interest.

Five minutes back, the Euro Renegades were apparently reigned in. Er... not really, it seems. On with the plunder. The gap is just going to get wider. Look at the transfer rumours around the "Big" clubs, the fees mooted.

"They" will likely get their super league in the end; it will just exist permanently and out of reach at the top of the various existing leagues. All very sad.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:09:34

Doubt Everton are in advanced talks with Howe if 10 minutes ago they were locked in talks trying to get Carlo to stay.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:10:01

Mark @167

Looks that way, there are loads of stories coming out now that he is in advanced talks with Everton


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:10:12

Absolutely, Thomas. Lots of people know better – until you ask them what they know.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:11:27

Mind you, TalkSport just said Nuno is our Number One target now! Oh, the rumour mill!!!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:11:28

I'll have £1 on Howe and 50p each way on Santo.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:11:51

Whoever is appointed should be sacked!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:12:35

Nuno Espirito Santo, come on down.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:12:42

Thomas,

I have on good authority from Darren the new manager is a busted flush but that's the only clue he gave me.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:12:55

Alan @ 147,

Looking at some of the other candidates touted, you may well get a shot, whether you like it or not!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:13:36

Poch and Kane to Goodison.

"Mark, wake up, Mr Ryan, wake up... "

Oh no, what a shambles... dreading the next few weeks already...


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:13:43

Kieran,

Not if it's Eddie Howe. Darren rates him highly.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:14:10

Carlo realising he can't polish the Everton turd. We're a basket case of a club and even he can't raise the dead.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:15:11

It's Nuno.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:15:24

Ian Edwards for manager please.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:15:56

Great news. Will save us paying out all of his contract when we need to get rid at Christmas. We actually might get a football coach in because for the life of me, I don't know what Carlo is.

I'd be happy Potter or Bielsa. Howe underwhelms but I actually think he's a very intelligent man and wouldn't write him off. Whoever we get, needs to be a tracksuit manager.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:16:31

Kevin Molloy you're missing your vocation. World class speculation and rumour mongering in all your posts today. You should set up your own clickbait football rumour bait. You'd be quids in.

'Paul Joyce has just confirmed it.'

That would be the RS leaning Paul Joyce who in October had a hissy fit with Carlo in a presser after the Goodison derby because our manager had the audacity to describe the Pickford-VDD clash as a football incident, simultaneously mentioning that James had picked up an injury early on by the flying Dutchman.

Pinch of salt.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:16:37

I'd take Nuno Santo over Eddie Howe. Lots of decent Portuguese players out there that he could bring in, and he'd probably get a tune out of Richarlison.

Bielsa would be fun. Don't suppose Leeds would be happy to part with him though.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:16:58

If Carlo leaves as seems more likely than not, what's the betting that Everton FC drags the appointment of his replacement until well into the summer?

Due to the disruption, some of our better players such as Richarlison and Digne decide to seek pastures new and the new Everton boss is landed with huge problems before he even gets his foot in the door.

Wouldn't surprise me if Richarlison joined Real Madrid as part of the 'compensation package', as someone tweeted if Everton FC was an animal you'd put it out of its misery.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:17:31

The Italian journo hasn't confirmed he's going. Nothing agreed yet.

If it does, at least we won't need to pay compo if it's Nuno or Howe. I rate Nuno and while I like Howe, he could be another Martinez clone who doesn't have a plan B.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:18:08

Bring back the new improved Davy Moyes who now brings a sword to a gunfight.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:18:40

Good enough for Real Madrid but not good enough for a mid table English team?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:21:19

Everton's last 4 permanent managers' reigns:

Ronald Koeman - 1 year 131 days
Sam Allardyce - 167 days
Marco Silva - 1 year 188 days
Carlo Ancelotti - 1 year 162 days?

There is the problem right there.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:21:53

Says it all really no one gives a fuck Don Carlo is going.

Blessing in disguise this plus there are a few managers available at the mo.

Whatever happened to Enrique the old Barca manager.

Personally I’d like to see what Moyes could do with more money.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:22:14

I thought this was all just good old fashioned paper talk but I’m getting messages from mates abroad saying sorry about Carlo leaving. Jeez.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:22:38

Just had a Media interview and was told " 95% certain Ancelotti will go to RM - - media informed within last hour " - - my Interview will be on Capital radio later today. Quoted ToffeeWeb as always as the font of all knowledge.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:23:01

Not a good look is it when you see how long each of Martinez's replacements lasted. According to Everton Statto, Everton's last 4 permanent managers' reigns:
Ronald Koeman - 1 year 131 days
Sam Allardyce - 167 days
Marco Silva - 1 year 188 days
Carlo Ancelotti - 1 year 162 days


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:25:07

I’ve heard that it’s Moyes nailed on cert.

He’s been delaying signing for the Hammers as he’s been talking to BK and Moshiri.

All hail the return of the Moyesiah


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:25:31

Guess it explains Howe's reluctance to sign the papers at Celtic ?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:25:38

Time for Ian Edward’s to move from critic to visionary - WHO DO YOU WANT AS MANAGER?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:26:36

So to all those that said CA was only here for an easy pension. No longer had the drive or ambition to compete at the top. He clearly wants to rejoin the most pressure driven job in world football at a time when RM need to rebuild like never before.
So if that doesn't show ambition and self belief I don't know what does.
But all Carlo wanted was a last cushy number with Everton according to some on here.
Where does the club go now?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:26:39

Jeez, typical so much for building a foundation, “the project”, but the media circus seem to be on a frenzy on this one.

Moshiri would have to be asking questions, but also the house burglary and robbery and perhaps other matters may be brought into account.

Well I had no expectations in this transfer window, as it’s every player going linked with Everton, but I hope that they don’t go for Moyes if this sketch turns out to be true.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:27:10

Daniel @195

David Prentice has said that replacement talk is premature and also David Moyes is wide off the mark


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:27:19

Probably a done deal, who would turn down Real in favour of us let's be honest, so no hostility towards Carlo from me.

All those whinging about what a shit manager he is, a dinosaur etc. will get their wish and we're back to square one all over again, new manager, new players, new budget demands, new staff. When we will ever learn that chopping and changing is the root cause of our problem. For the first time in decades we bring someone in who has the capabilities to build something significant, but no, people scream the place down because it's not an instant fix.

A sad day if (when) he goes.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:34:32

I may have got a LITTLE carried away Jay, but if you can't speculate on days like today when can you..


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:34:42

Eddie Howe? Another manager with "Premier League experience".

Of getting relegated. Haven't we tried two of those recently?

Moyes? No thanks. We've been there before. Won nothing and gradually had our expectation played down.

I hope this isn't true but it's growing traction.

I'll say it again. Regardless of the manager. Get better players.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:36:01

If Fabrizio Romano's reporting it, it means it's probably true Carlo's gone. Now comes my nearly annual suggestion that we should appoint Marcelino, which at this point probably makes me look like a madman, his agent, or his mom.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:37:49

Rudy @156
In the modern world, it's possible you could be all three :)


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:42:38

Danny, Moyes walked out on us once, he can stay where he is as far as I'm concerned.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:42:46

The only time Everton have won silverware since the war is when an ex-Everton player has been the manager. Arteta is probably out of the question, but step forward Big Dunc, together with a very savvy assistant.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:47:32

I don't like that perspective Jimmy, although clearly everyone is entitled to it.

I hate using them as an example, but it took Liverpool to step out of the boot room mentality and reinvent themselves in the modern game to win stuff again.

If we think that Evertonians (mostly non native ones) will only ever win us trophies, we'll probably never win anything ever again.

I don't care where the manager comes from or who he's played for and whether he's played for Everton. Klopp never played for Liverpool. Ferguson never played for United. Mourinho never played for Chelsea and Wenger never played for Arsenal. Pep never played for City or Bayern Munich.

As always, first and foremost you need the players. But then if you want to succeed now, you need a fairly big name manager. Chelsea has just proven that. Lampard may have the potential, but it took Tuchel to come in and get a tune out of it.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:48:02

Why would any half decent manager come here, after one defeat they’re pulled apart on here. Same as the players.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:49:45

If Madrid have made an approach I can only see one scenario as nobody says no to Madrid.

If Carlo departs then the best of luck to the new manage as he will be taking over an absolute mess of a club. It will be some challenge to move the club forward, therefore, no matter who takes over, be it Nuno, Howe, Moyes, Potter, another world class German coach, I wish them well.

Of the candidates mentioned I think Nuno offers the best hope of success.

I don't think Moyes will leave West Ham, not with them in Europe and things having gone so well for him there. He might use the situation to improve his contract and his bargaining power regarding future transfers.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:50:14

Not bothered if he does go, Carlos gravitas still got us 10th and the football was dire! There is no chance he would have got the spends to by the players he would require, to get us challenging again. We need someone who can get the best out of what's at their disposal and sadly - Carlo didn't know what to do with our lot. Does that make him a bad manager? No, just the wrong one for this particular job.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:52:33

If Ancelotti goes, there'll be him at Real, Koeman at Barca and Martinez as manager of the number one international side, Belgium. All were not exactly successful at Goodison. Interesting.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:53:26

Quite right Keith, I actually think some people would prefer to see us fail so they can get their full moans in. It's a bit like these Arsenal TV types, they make more money when they lose.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:53:29

Keith @161
I really don't believe anyone employed in the game, at the highest levels, really concerns themselves with what us mere mortals have to say, be it good or bad. It's the large amounts of money on offer that they look forward to and if they get praise along the way that's a bonus. I had admired Carlo and thought he might do something for Everton but he has shown himself to be yet another mercenary in a pantheon of mercenaries.

Whoever Everton appoints to replace Carlo, I don't want to hear 'family club', 'nice place to work' etc I want to hear I'm here to win as many games for Everton as is humanly possible. All the other soundbites are meaningless.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:54:22

Go get Christophe Galtier. Did a remarkable job with Lille, winning Ligue 1. Wonder if he is capable of doing something similar here.

"Everton are talking to a big name to replace Ancelotti".
Nuno Herlander Simões Espírito Santo! There is a big name for ya!!!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:57:38

Because they didn't have the players Rick Tarleton.

Ultimately, you need the players.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:58:00

Barry @167

Absolutely agree, problem is though its Kenwright most of the time that keeps saying family club, nice club etc.. and also keeps employing ex players because he loves being sentimental regardless if any of those ex players can actually coach!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:00:54

Well either way it's the most exciting thing that's happened since he took over.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:01:46

One lighter note. Whatever happens everyone, we'll all still be here!!!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:02:26

I can't believe we are being linked with the likes of Moyes and Howe again ffs! Kenwright out.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:02:39

Rick: @ 165. I was just about to write that. So fucking Everton.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:03:44

Soren

I know ffs why not get Mike Walker if their the options


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:04:31

Marc Hints nailed it: as much as most Evertonians are positive about Carlo, nobody is bigger than the club and if he wants to go Everton is better off without him. We need players, managers, coaches who, as well as being good at their job, really want to be at Everton.

The phrase “world class” gets bandied about in relation to Carlo but if it’s true that he’s asked to go, and I believe it is, there is nothing class about that at all.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:06:05

It will completely wreck our summer transfer strategy if this happens and the club didn’t know/plan for it.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:07:00

Kieran, if Walker was available, we would have been linked with him too lol.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:07:45

Gerard

I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, a bereavement, a house break in, coupled with an underperforming team. Some times when you’re down the grass looks greener.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:09:04

Surely Benitez has to be the obvious choice when Ancelotti leaves and the speculation window opens.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:09:08

Kieran did you have to?!!!

Mike Walker. Done well with provincial Norwich and at the time the latest, greatest darling of the English media.

That went well didn't it?!!

Watch the media clamour for Howe now.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:09:18

If you want loyalty - get a dog! Not sure why I even have an interest anymore!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:09:18

Bielsa would be my No.1. How exciting would the ball be to watch. I'm so sick of watching poor football. Last time we saw anything decent was in RM first Season. No chance of course, we will end up with Big Sam again, he is available after all.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:11:18

Exactly Barry Williams.

My dogs are with me every morning at 6am listening, agreeing and nodding as I vent about Everton!

Really they just want the cheese cubes I take with me, but I have to believe in their loyalty to me . and Everton.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:11:33

Gerard @177

Thanks, pointless keeping him and as you say nobody is bigger than the club. Its better having someone who wants to be there and is a good coach.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:11:40

FFS, Gerrard is being linked now. Done well in the Scottish Sunday league, but can he handle the intensity and pressure of the English premier league? Let the RS find that out.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:12:54

Give Bielsa or Rodgers(!) a blank cheque. Failing those, Graham Potter would be a good appointment – i'd have thought Moshiri will be after a 'name', however. Wouldn't mind Lampard either, he had Chelsea playing some good stuff at times and they were a little unfair to him in the end.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:14:07

Gutted if this turns out to be true.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:15:38

I have a feeling that the next manager will either take us to the promised land or be the final nail in the Everton project.

How the devil enjoys making the dark side happy, Everton's form tails off in the closing months, culminating in a humiliating defeat at the Etihad, his faves make third place in the table and the two manc clubs get done in their respective European finals and now our first and possibly only world-renowned manager jumps ship at the first opportunity. I would imagine even the most optimistic Kopite can't believe those events actually happened.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:15:38

Available coaches. Take your pick fellas lol:

RAFA BENITEZ
ATONIO CONTE

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:15:44

Think a little perspective needs to be put on the situation. The owner has squandered a good few quid on different approaches to get us challenging again..

None have worked, but over time the expectation level has risen! The money spend is a lot but nowhere near enough to buy success.

In reality, Everton are a top 10 team nothing less- nothing more. The gap between our good selves and those in the top 4 is millions!

This project still is very much in it's infancy and the long game is what it's about. The trouble is we expect too much and lose sight of the level we are really at.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:18:08

Rob. Go and get washing liquid, clean your mouth out and then go straight to Mass for confession!!

Okay, different spin on this. Has the club decided to move here? This club will never fail to break my hope, but I wonder how much of a "mutual agreement" aspect could be in this.

Especially if there's any truth in the poster above's statement that we're already in talks with a big name replacement.

Just please do not dress up Moyes or Howe as a big name. Don't let Kenwright near this one.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:20:48

Greg O'Keefe tweeted Everton has a long list of names including Benitez and Gerrard. As Greg notes the day gets more surreal.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:21:26

Soren - got to be the return of Marco "Stan Laurel" Silva, if we can't get Super Steve Cooper. Or how about Pulis?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:23:09

Can we please stop mentioning Howe and Potter, they are not managers of any substance or pedigree.
Someone posted Howe was an intelligent man, so was Einstein but he knew fuckall about football.
I'm shit scared at the moment, have visions of BK at a presser all teary eyed flaunting our latest fucking waste of a contract.
Im am genuinely scared as well lads.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:23:51

Soren, a veritable House of Horrors that lot. Tony Pulis? Is he still alive?🤣🤣


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:25:13

Okay, if this happens, here's an outside shot.

The Brentford manager.

You go one way or the other. Up and coming or established and experienced.

Experienced; I'd go for Benitez. I'll now go and get the washing up liquid and tooth brush!

But ultimately, give the coach the players. Players win matches.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:26:40

I don't want more managerial instability just now but if he does go, it might as well be now. Aside from the hefty compensation due, it means that the new manager will get his own budget to replace some of the players. Better now than halfway through a season when a new manager would inherit players he doesn't fancy.

It would also have the spinoff benefit of putting an end to Mr Hind's Ancelotti Out campaign! Till the next manager at least!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:26:43

Will (195), Pulis, Silva, etc. They are finished. Steve Cooper!? No thanks lol.

What we can be sure of is that we will go for an out of work dude this time if indeed Ancelotti goes.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:27:46

I am holding my powder dry at the moment until something concrete is confirmed although I am told there is a bunch of Spanish reporters hovering around GP to confirm the outcome. Perhaps some of our local lads can confirm.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:27:54

Phil jagielka released by Sheff Utd. Kenwright already on the phone to him, offering him the managers job.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:28:35

So if he joins Real, will he still be espousing the need for bans and points losses?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:29:02

If Moyes goes back to Goodison then so will my season ticket.

Thomas Franke from Brentford would be my choice, although wouldn't be upset if it was Lampard, at least some of the kids would get a chance.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:29:11

Soren, just to clarify, as it's vitally important - I wasn't serious.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:29:31

I don't want Nuno. He's more negative than Ancelotti.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:30:21

we're a laughing stock and Ancelotti is a ffing tosser.
Why the fk do journalist keep on mentioning Moyes and Benitez?

will we ever amount to anything again?
why do we bother?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:30:22

Sky Sports reporting it's 99% done


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:31:58

Barry - of course not. Never underestimate the vast reserves of easy hypocrisy in football.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:32:03

Lampard for me. Will be a perfect fit with the Everton project.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:32:04

Farhad is letting Blue Bill handle this one and I've just come from Bill's office, I can confirm most of the paperwork is complete and the new manager being appointed tomorrow will be Pep Guardiola.

Bill just has to finish up the compensation package with the Sheikh (Bill offered over 1 million Pesos) and by tomorrow, Bill will have Pep in front of the cameras will the new away shirt in hand.

Bill also had a long discussion with another leading candidate Antonio Conte, who was also locked in discussions with Bill but he didn't match the ambition of Bill as he's only won the league in two countries, also he was rather rude when listening to Bill reminiscing about his time in the boys pen.

I can also confirm Moyes, was also having talks with Bill and Bill really liked his game plan for "getting out alive" at Mordor and Old Trafford but he's very much second choice and provided no last minute hiccups with the Pep deal he won't be returning as manager.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:32:30

Will, Yes. My post was meant to be agreed with you but somehow it didn't lol. My apology.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:32:35

Who do you want Ian?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:33:28

Andrew - media eh!

I wonder how they were able to gauge when it went from 98 to 99%.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:34:20

That's an interesting shout Ian. Some of the in-laws are big Wolves fans, have been all their lives and love what he's done for them.

I'll admit, not followed them a lot as most of the inherited family are Villa, but when I have seen them over the past few years, they've played some good stuff. Their midfielders in particular have played positive football.

Admittedly, they had a poor season this year. Worse than ours.

But I'll agree. I don't know why, but I just don't instinctively see a connection there for him to be Everton manager.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:34:22

Matt (212), Is Pep in the building?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:34:59

Only one man with the pedigree that Everton deserves.
Gary Megson...come on down


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:35:13

Will Mabon - 215

or 499.99% done deal, using modern parlance!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:36:00

If anybody is going to the Freshy this afternoon, can they please get Richard Dodd's take on Moyes' return ?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:37:34

Dave @ 197

It was me that said Howe was an intelligent man. I could add hungry, motivated and meticulous to that list of adjectives. I'd have concerns about his flexibility though, as others have mentioned.

As for Potter. Brighton had the forth highest XP in the league last year. They create chances and play great football. Most of the players on the team have increased in value, some considerably. He's made Brighton a fairly comfortable Premier League side and his career is on an upward curve. Young, hungry and yes, wait for it. . . Bright!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:38:12

Congratulations Darren and Ian. Now we can move on lads. Who next though?

Scary times. I just hope the new man has the power and courage to tell Moshiri what players he wants.

No way do I want to see an Eddie Howe steady type with Brands bringing the likes of McNeil in for him as top players.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:40:08

Barry, yes.

500 the latest one, replacing the previous favourite, "110%".


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:41:01

Steve # 214. Ask the Pope, you'll likely get a reply from him!!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:41:53

Soren, some interesting names on that list. Benitez, Conte, Jardim and Favre have the best credentials. The others look more like the standard Watford used to hire and sack repeatedly. It would seriously gall me to appoint Benitez and it's not like he's achieved anything for years. Conte looks more like a manager who'd want a bigger budget than we've got. Jardim hasn't really done anything since Monaco sold all their marvellous players about 4 years ago. Favre is now 63 and is probably too old to debut in the Premier League, albeit built a very good Monchengladbach side.

So I still like Ten Haag the best but we seem to now be the ruin of many a manager. Whether it would work out is anyone's guess.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:42:18

I've just been looking at the Wolves' fans take on this. They all seem to love Nuno and were gutted when he was linked with Palace. But they generally seem to think Everton is a better fit and makes sense for him and the club.

Here's one quote:
"Would be just what Everton need to be honest, though I don't think the way we played last season will excite their fans. However we were electric for large parts of our first two seasons back in the PL."

They also seem to think we'd be in for Neves.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:43:13

Gary Megson! How about McCall?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:44:54

Michael, maybe go back and sign Raul Jiminez as well? Can leave Adama Traore where he is though.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:44:58

Problem is Conor we are a shit show.

Why would the Brentford manager leave after taking them up?
Why would Potter leave a stable club for us?

My money is still on Dour Dave with Lampard going back to his boyhood club... these are very scary times for us.

For the record I would like Nuno, he's suffered a poor season and a lot of injuries to boot and still managed a decent placing all considered.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:46:15

Rob @ 224, you are correct! But I will keep asking. Perhaps the other arch critics would like to contribute a name?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:47:41

If you look what’s happened over the last few weeks, it would seem that this was something that was being discussed for. just look at the display against City and the reaction. Howe pulling out of the Celtic job is also interesting although that could be a red herring

Shit, back to fish puns now


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:48:48

Anthony - scale it down a bit.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:49:01

Rob H, can you use the excuse of taking the dog for a walk to pop round to Seamus’s place and get us the inside story from FInch Farm?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:49:10

If Moshiri really is serious about making Everton a force in English football, perhaps this is an opportune moment to have a complete re-shuffle of the club, time for him to take control of his hobby and become proactive in events at Goodison rather than reacting to stuff.

If we stumble on as a club the way we have for the last few years, regardless of who we appoint as manager, there is only one likely destination and it isn't Bramley Moore.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:49:20

The wheels are falling off at Everton if this happens, even with the muted USM money underlying the project, we'll struggle to compete in the medium-term if managers like Ancelotti can and want to leave for jobs elsewhere so quickly. It sends out all the wrong messages.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:50:38

Ferguson and Jagielka.

Duncan can enthuse everyone for a game or two before realising the players aren't good enough.

Jagielka can put his arm around the players when they haven't performed and tell them it's okay, don't listen to the nasty crowd. "Don't listen to them Ross" or whatever it was he said.

If we revert to type here I will be fuming. If this is happening, we had best be thinking externally.

There are enough sentinmental old boys in the system. Move on Everton.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:50:54

James Vaughan just announced his retirement from playing age 32.

Coincidence? Lol


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:51:25

Anthony #231.

You seem like you are really in tuna with everything that's going on.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:52:29

I can only think that the club have showed no resistance or determination to may be keeping Carlo and if that is the case then maybe either they weren't satisfied with the way the Carlo project was going, ie, quality of football, or maybe the players he wanted to sign were going against what Brands was trying to do.

The reason I am looking at it in that way is because only very recently he quashed these rumours stating he was happy at Everton Football Club.
If this is true, I will be sad because it means maybe ripping up one plan and having to start another which puts us back in both terms of recruitment strategies and players wanting to sign who now, without Carlo, may not want to.

If it's true, I wish him a fond Farewell.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:52:40

Barry, I don't think he is. He is here to build the stadium and sell for a profit.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:53:23

Klinsmann seen in duty free at John Lennon Airport apparently.

In all seriousness, though, if he goes, he goes. Get someone else in and give them our full support. If Carlo stays, we also give him our full support. Football and life move on.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:53:59

17th is going to be a push next season. Carlo's signings won't be happy. Half the squad needs the boot.

New manager will want new players and we all know how long that takes at EFC.

Eddie Howe is awful. It will be as funny as fuck if it's Moyes tho… just to see the faces on the "Kenwright isn't involved anymore" sheep.

Absolute laughing stock of a football club.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:54:02

I hope the players are having a long hard look at themselves as, yes, most of them are average at best but the lack of effort and lack of basic skills must surely be in Carlo's mind when considering this one

Win-win for the players as they get at least another year to convince a new manager of how bad they are.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:55:13

Next season in the balance on a personal note.

Alien (film)

1979 science fiction horror film by Ridley Scott

This article is about the 1979 science fiction film. For the franchise it started, see Alien (franchise).

Alien is a 1979 science fictionhorror film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Dan O'Bannon. Based on a story by O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett, it follows the crew of the commercial space tug Nostromo, who encounter the eponymous Alien, an aggressive and deadly extraterrestrial set loose on the ship. The film stars Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm, and Yaphet Kotto. It was produced by Gordon Carroll, David Giler, and Walter Hill through their company Brandywine Productions, and was distributed by 20th Century Fox. Giler and Hill revised and made additions to the script; Shusett was executive producer. The Alien and its accompanying artifacts were designed by the Swiss artist H. R. Giger, while concept artistsRon Cobb and Chris Foss designed the more human settings.

Alien premiered May 25, 1979, as the opening night of the fourth Seattle International Film Festival, presented in 70mm at midnight.[7][8][9] It received a wide release on June 22 and was released September 6 in the United Kingdom. It was met with mixed reviews on release but was a box-office success, winning the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, three Saturn Awards (Best Science Fiction Film, Best Direction for Scott, and Best Supporting Actress for Cartwright), and a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation. In 2002, Alien was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the Library of Congress and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. In 2008, it was ranked by the American Film Institute as the seventh-best film in the science-fiction genre, and as the 33rd-greatest film of all time by Empire.

The success of Alien spawned a media franchise of films, novels, comic books, video games, and toys. It also launched Weaver's acting career, providing her with her first lead role. The story of her character's encounters with the Alien creatures became the thematic and narrative core of the sequels Aliens (1986), Alien 3 (1992), and Alien Resurrection (1997). A crossover with the Predator franchise produced the Alien vs. Predator films: Alien vs. Predator (2004) and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007). A prequel series includes Prometheus (2012) and Alien: Covenant (2017), both directed by Scott.

Plot[edit]

The commercial space tug Nostromo is returning to Earth with a seven-member crew in stasis: Captain Dallas, Executive Officer Kane, Warrant Officer Ripley, Navigator Lambert, Science Officer Ash, and two engineers, Parker and Brett. Detecting a transmission from a nearby moon, the ship's computer, Mother, awakens the crew. Per company policy requiring any potential distress signal be investigated, they land on the moon despite Parker's protests, sustaining damage from its atmosphere and rocky landscape in the process. The engineers stay on board to effect repairs while Dallas, Kane, and Lambert head out to investigate. They discover the signal originates from a derelict alien ship and enter it, losing communication with the Nostromo. Ripley deciphers part of the transmission, determining it to be a warning, but cannot relay this information to those on the derelict ship.

Meanwhile, Kane discovers a chamber containing hundreds of large, egg-like objects. When he touches one, a creature springs out, breaks through his helmet, and attaches itself to his face. Dallas and Lambert carry the unconscious Kane back to the Nostromo. As acting senior officer, Ripley refuses to let them aboard, citing quarantine regulations, but Ash overrides her decision and lets them inside. Ash attempts to remove the creature from Kane's face, but stops when he discovers that its blood is an extremely corrosive acid. It later detaches of its own accord and is found dead. The ship is partially repaired, and the crew continue their journey back to Earth. Kane awakens with some memory loss, but seems to be otherwise unharmed. During a final crew meal before returning to stasis, he suddenly chokes and convulses. A small alien creature bursts from Kane's chest, killing him, and escapes into the ship, with Ash dissuading the rest from killing it.

The crew attempts to locate the creature with tracking devices and capture it with nets, electric prods, and flamethrowers. Brett follows the crew's cat Jones into a landing leg compartment,[10] where the now-fully-grown alien attacks Brett and disappears with his body. After a heated discussion, the crew decide the creature must be in the air ducts. Dallas enters the ducts, intending to force the monster into an airlock, but it ambushes and kills him. Lambert, realizing that the alien intends to aggressively kill the crew one by one, implores the others to abandon ship and escape in its small shuttle, but Ripley, now in command, explains it will not support four people and insists on continuing with Dallas' plan of flushing out the alien.

Accessing Mother, Ripley discovers Ash has been secretly ordered by the company to bring the alien back, with the crew considered expendable. She confronts Ash, who tries to choke her to death. Parker intervenes and clubs Ash, knocking his head loose and revealing him as an android. Ash's head is reactivated, and they learn he was assigned to ensure the creature's survival. He expresses admiration for the creature's psychology, unhindered by conscience or morality, and taunts them about their chances of survival. Ripley cuts off his power; as they leave, Parker incinerates him.

The remaining crew decide to self-destruct the Nostromo and escape in the shuttle. However, Parker and Lambert are ambushed and killed by the creature while gathering life-support supplies. Ripley initiates the self-destruct sequence, but finds the alien blocking her path to the shuttle. She retreats and attempts unsuccessfully to abort the self-destruct. With no further options, she makes her way to the shuttle and barely escapes as the Nostromo explodes.

As Ripley prepares for stasis, she discovers that the alien is aboard, having wedged itself into a narrow space. She puts on a spacesuit and uses gas to flush the creature out. It approaches Ripley, but before it can attack, she opens an airlock door, almost blasting the creature into space. It manages to hang on by gripping the frame. Ripley shoots it with a grappling hook, but the gun catches as the airlock door closes, tethering the alien to the shuttle. It pulls itself into an engine exhaust but Ripley fires the engines, blasting the creature away into the depths of space. After recording the final log entry, she places Jones and herself into stasis for the trip back to Earth.

Cast[edit]

The seven principal cast members of the film stand in front of a white backdrop, in costume and holding prop weapons from the film.
The principal cast members of Alien(left to right: Holm, Stanton, Weaver, Kotto, Skerritt, Cartwright, and Hurt)

See also: List of Alien (film series) characters

  • Tom Skerritt as Dallas, captain of the Nostromo. Skerritt had been approached early in the film's development, but declined as it did not yet have a director and had a very low budget. Later, when Scott was attached as director and the budget had been doubled, Skerritt accepted the role.[11][12]
  • Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, the warrant officer aboard the Nostromo. Weaver, who had Broadway experience but was relatively unknown in film, impressed Scott, Giler, and Hill with her audition. She was the last actor to be cast for the film, and performed most of her screen tests in-studio as the sets were being built.[12][13] The role of Ripley was Weaver's first leading role in a motion picture, and earned her nominations for a Saturn Award for Best Actress and a BAFTA award for Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Role.[14]
  • Veronica Cartwright as Lambert, the Nostromo's navigator. Cartwright had experience in horror and science-fiction films, having acted as a child in The Birds (1963) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).[15] She originally read for the role of Ripley, and was not informed that she had instead been cast as Lambert until she arrived in London for wardrobe.[12][16] She disliked the character's emotional weakness,[13] but nevertheless accepted the role: "They convinced me that I was the audience's fears; I was a reflection of what the audience is feeling."[12] Cartwright won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance.[17]
  • Harry Dean Stanton as Brett, the engineering technician. Stanton's first words to Scott during his audition were, "I don't like sci fi or monster movies".[11] Scott was amused and convinced Stanton to take the role after reassuring him that Alien would actually be a thriller more akin to Ten Little Indians.[11]
  • John Hurt as Kane, the executive officer who becomes the host for the Alien. Hurt was Scott's first choice for the role, but he was contracted on a film in South Africa during Alien's filming dates, so Jon Finch was cast as Kane, instead.[13] However, Finch became ill during the first day of shooting and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, which had also exacerbated a case of bronchitis.[18] Hurt was in London by this time, his South African project having fallen through, and he quickly replaced Finch.[12][18] His performance earned him a nomination for a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.[19]
  • Ian Holm as Ash, the ship's science officer who is revealed to be an android. Holm was a character actor, who, by 1979, had already been in 20 films.
  • Yaphet Kotto as Parker, the chief engineer. Kotto, an African American, was chosen partly to add diversity to the cast and give the Nostromo crew an international flavor.[12] Kotto was sent a script off the back of his recent success as villain Dr. Kananga in the James Bond film, Live and Let Die (1973), and said he rejected a lucrative film offer in the hope of being cast in Alien.[21]
  • Bolaji Badejo as the Alien. Nigerian Badejo, while a 26-year-old design student, was discovered in a bar by a member of the casting team, who put him in touch with Scott.[13][22] Scott believed that Badejo, at 6 feet 10 inches (208 cm) (7 ft inside the costume) and with a slender frame,[23] could portray the Alien and look as if his arms and legs were too long to be real, creating the illusion that a human being could not possibly be inside the costume.[13][22][24]StuntmenEddie Powell and Roy Scammell also portrayed the Alien in some scenes.[24][25]
  • Helen Horton as the voice of Mother, the Nostromo's computer.

Production[edit]

Writing[edit]

Screenwriter Dan O'Bannon

While studying cinema at the University of Southern California, Dan O'Bannon had made a science-fiction comedy film, Dark Star, with director John Carpenter and concept artistRon Cobb.[26] The film featured an alien (created by spray-painting a beach ball and adding rubber "claws"); the experience left O'Bannon "really wanting to do an alien that looked real."[26][27] A "couple of years" later he began work on a similar story that would focus more on horror. "I knew I wanted to do a scary movie on a spaceship with a small number of astronauts", he later recalled, "Dark Star as a horror movie instead of a comedy."[26]Ronald Shusett, meanwhile, was working on an early version of what would eventually become Total Recall.[26][27] Impressed by Dark Star, he contacted O'Bannon and the two agreed to collaborate on their projects, choosing to work on O'Bannon's film first, as they believed it would be less costly to produce.[26][27]

O'Bannon had written 29 pages of a script titled Memory, containing what would become the opening scenes of Alien: a crew of astronauts awakens to find that their voyage has been interrupted because they are receiving a signal from a mysterious planetoid. They investigate and their ship breaks down on the surface.[24][27] He did not yet have a clear idea as to what the alien antagonist of the story would be.[26]

O'Bannon soon accepted an offer to work on Alejandro Jodorowsky's adaptation of Dune, a project that took him to Paris for six months.[26][28] Though the project ultimately fell through, it introduced him to several artists whose work gave him ideas for his science-fiction story including Chris Foss, H. R. Giger, and Jean "Moebius" Giraud.[24] O'Bannon was impressed by Foss's covers for science-fiction books, while he found Giger's work "disturbing":[26] "His paintings had a profound effect on me. I had never seen anything that was quite as horrible and at the same time as beautiful as his work. And so I ended up writing a script about a Giger monster."[24] After the Dune project collapsed, O'Bannon returned to Los Angeles to live with Shusett and the two revived his Memory script. Shusett suggested that O'Bannon use one of his other film ideas, about gremlins infiltrating a B-17 bomber during World War II, and set it on the spaceship as the second half of the story.[24][28] The working title of the project was now Star Beast, but O'Bannon disliked this and changed it to Alien after noting the number of times that the word appeared in the script. Shusett and he liked the new title's simplicity and its double meaning as both a noun and an adjective.[24][26][29] Shusett came up with the idea that one of the crew members could be implanted with an alien embryo that would burst out of him; he thought this would be an interesting plot device by which the alien could get aboard the ship.[26][28]

Dan [O'Bannon] put his finger on the problem: what has to happen next is the creature has to get on the ship in an interesting way. I have no idea how, but if we could solve that, if it can't be that it just snuck in, then I think the whole movie will come into place. In the middle of the night, I woke up and I said, "Dan I think I have an idea: the alien screws one of them [...] it jumps on his face and plants its seed!" And Dan says, oh my god, we've got it, we've got the whole movie.

—Screenwriter Ron Shusett[30][31]

In writing the script, O'Bannon drew inspiration from many previous works of science fiction and horror. He later stated,"I didn't steal Alien from anybody. I stole it from everybody!"[32]The Thing from Another World (1951) inspired the idea of professional men being pursued by a deadly alien creature through a claustrophobic environment.[32]Forbidden Planet (1956) gave O'Bannon the idea of a ship being warned not to land, and then the crew being killed one by one by a mysterious creature when they defy the warning.[32]Planet of the Vampires (1965) contains a scene in which the heroes discover a giant alien skeleton; this influenced the Nostromo crew's discovery of the alien creature in the derelict spacecraft.[32] O'Bannon has also noted the influence of "Junkyard" (1953), a short story by Clifford D. Simak in which a crew lands on an asteroid and discovers a chamber full of eggs.[27] He has also cited as influences Strange Relations by Philip José Farmer (1960), which covers alien reproduction, and various EC Comics horror titles carrying stories in which monsters eat their way out of people.[27]

With most of the plot in place, Shusett and O'Bannon presented their script to several studios,[26] pitching it as "Jaws in space."[33] They were on the verge of signing a deal with Roger Corman's studio when a friend offered to find them a better deal and passed the script on to Gordon Carroll, David Giler, and Walter Hill, who had formed a production company called Brandywine with ties to 20th Century Fox.[26][34] O'Bannon and Shusett signed a deal with Brandywine, but Hill and Giler were not satisfied with the script and made numerous rewrites and revisions.[26][35] This caused tension with O'Bannon and Shusett, since Hill and Giler had very little experience with science fiction; according to Shusett, "They weren't good at making it better, or, in fact, at not making it even worse."[26] O'Bannon believed that Hill and Giler were attempting to justify taking his name off the script and claiming Shusett's and his work as their own.[26] Hill and Giler did add some substantial elements to the story, including the android character Ash, which O'Bannon felt was an unnecessary subplot but which Shusett later described as "one of the best things in the movie...That whole idea and scenario was theirs."[26] Hill and Giler went through eight drafts of the script in total, concentrating largely on the Ash subplot, but also making the dialogue more natural and trimming some sequences set on the alien planetoid.[36] Despite the fact that the final shooting script was written by Hill and Giler, the Writers Guild of America awarded O'Bannon sole credit for the screenplay.

Development[edit]

Despite these rewrites, 20th Century Fox did not express confidence in financing a science-fiction film. However, after the success of Star Wars in 1977, the studio's interest in the genre rose substantially. According to Carroll: "When Star Wars came out and was the extraordinary hit that it was, suddenly science fiction became the hot genre." O'Bannon recalled that "They wanted to follow through on Star Wars, and they wanted to follow through fast, and the only spaceship script they had sitting on their desk was Alien".[26]Alien was greenlit by 20th Century Fox, with an initial budget of $4.2 million.[26][36]Alien was funded by North Americans, but made by 20th Century-Fox's British production subsidiary.[37]

O'Bannon had originally assumed that he would direct Alien, but 20th Century Fox instead asked Hill to direct.[36][38] Hill declined due to other film commitments, as well as not being comfortable with the level of visual effects that would be required.[39]Peter Yates, Jack Clayton, and Robert Aldrich were considered for the task, but O'Bannon, Shusett, and the Brandywine team felt that these directors would not take the film seriously and would instead treat it as a B monster movie.[38][40] Giler, Hill, and Carroll had been impressed by Ridley Scott's debut feature film The Duellists (1977) and made an offer to him to direct Alien, which Scott quickly accepted.[24][40] Scott created detailed storyboards for the film in London, which impressed 20th Century Fox enough to double the film's budget.[11][38] His storyboards included designs for the spaceship and space suits, drawing on such films as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Wars.[11] However, he was keen on emphasizing horror in Alien rather than fantasy, describing the film as "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre of science fiction".[38][40]

Casting[edit]

Further information on individual characters: List of Alien characters

Casting calls and auditions for Alien were held in both New York City and London.[11] With only seven human characters in the story, Scott sought to hire strong actors so he could focus most of his energy on the film's visual style.[11] He employed casting director Mary Selway, who had worked with him on The Duellists, to head the casting in the United Kingdom, while Mary Goldberg handled casting in the United States.[12][41] In developing the story, O'Bannon had focused on writing the Alien first, putting off developing the other characters.[38] Shusett and he had intentionally written all the roles generically; they made a note in the script that explicitly states, "The crew is unisex and all parts are interchangeable for men or women."[12][42] This freed Scott, Selway, and Goldberg to interpret the characters as they pleased, and to cast accordingly. They wanted the Nostromo's crew to resemble working astronauts in a realistic environment, a concept summarized as "truckers in space".[11][12] According to Scott, this concept was inspired partly by Star Wars, which deviated from the pristine future often depicted in science-fiction films of the time.[43]

To assist the actors in preparing for their roles, Scott wrote several pages of backstory for each character explaining their histories.[36][44] He filmed many of their rehearsals to capture spontaneity and improvisation, and tensions between some of the cast members, particularly towards the less-experienced Weaver; this translated convincingly to film as tension between the characters.[44]

Roger Ebert notes that the actors in Alien were older than was typical in thriller films at the time, which helped make the characters more convincing:

None of them were particularly young. Tom Skerritt, the captain, was 46, Hurt was 39 but looked older, Holm was 48, Harry Dean Stanton was 53, Yaphet Kotto was 42, and only Veronica Cartwright at 30 and Weaver at 29 were in the age range of the usual thriller cast. Many recent action pictures have improbably young actors cast as key roles or sidekicks, but by skewing older, Alien achieves a certain texture without even making a point of it: These are not adventurers but workers, hired by a company to return 20 million tons of ore to Earth.[45]

David McIntee, author of Beautiful Monsters: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to the Alien and Predator Films, asserts that part of the film's effectiveness in frightening viewers "comes from the fact that the audience can all identify with the characters...Everyone aboard the Nostromo is a normal, everyday, working Joe just like the rest of us. They just happen to live and work in the future."[46]

Filming[edit]

In a film studio, a director operates a crane-mounted camera aimed at a large grey model spacecraft, raised several feet in the air by a support structure underneath. The model is lit from one side by bright studio lights and has tall spires with many pieces protruding from them.
Ridley Scott filmed model shots of the Nostromoand its attached ore refinery. He made slow passes filming at 21⁄2frames per second to give the models the appearance of motion.[24]

Alien was filmed over 14 weeks from July 5 to October 21, 1978. Principal photography took place at Shepperton Studios near London, while model and miniature filming was done at Bray Studios in Water Oakley, Berkshire.[41] The production schedule was short due to the film's low budget and pressure from 20th Century Fox to finish on time.[44]

A crew of over 200 craftspeople and technicians constructed the three principal sets: the surface of the alien planetoid, and the interiors of the Nostromo and the derelict spacecraft.[24] Art director Les Dilley created 1⁄24-scale miniatures of the planetoid's surface and derelict spacecraft based on Giger's designs, then made moulds and casts and scaled them up as diagrams for the wood and fiberglass forms of the sets.[11] Tons of sand, plaster, fiberglass, rock, and gravel were shipped into the studio to sculpt a desert landscape for the planetoid's surface, which the actors would walk across wearing space-suit costumes.[24] The suits themselves were thick, bulky, and lined with nylon, had no cooling systems, and initially, no venting for their exhaled carbon dioxide to escape.[47] Combined with a heat wave, these conditions nearly caused the actors to pass out; nurses had to be kept on-hand with oxygen tanks.[44][47]

For scenes showing the exterior of the Nostromo, a 58-foot (18 m) landing leg was constructed to give a sense of the ship's size. Scott was not convinced that it looked large enough, so he had his two young sons and the son of Derek Vanlint (the film's cinematographer) stand in for the regular actors, wearing smaller space suits to make the set pieces seem larger.[47][48] The same technique was used for the scene in which the crew members encounter the dead alien creature in the derelict spacecraft. The children nearly collapsed due to the heat of the suits; oxygen systems were eventually added to help the actors breathe.[44][47] Four identical cats were used to portray Jones, the crew's pet.[41] During filming, Sigourney Weaver discovered that she was allergic to the combination of cat hair and the glycerin placed on the actors' skin to make them appear sweaty. By removing the glycerin she was able to continue working with the cats.[18][44]

Alien originally was to conclude with the destruction of the Nostromo while Ripley escapes in the shuttle Narcissus. However, Scott conceived of a "fourth act" to the film in which the Alien appears on the shuttle and Ripley is forced to confront it. He pitched the idea to 20th Century Fox and negotiated an increase in the budget to film the scene over several extra days.[49] Scott had wanted the Alien to bite off Ripley's head and then make the final log entry in her voice, but the producers vetoed this idea as they believed the Alien should die at the end of the film.[49]

Post-production[edit]

Editing and postproduction work on Alien took roughly 20 weeks to complete, concluding in late-January 1979.[50] Terry Rawlings served as editor, having previously worked with Scott on editing sound for The Duellists.[50] Scott and Rawlings edited much of the film to have a slow pace to build suspense for the more tense and frightening moments. According to Rawlings: "I think the way we did get it right was by keeping it slow, funny enough, which is completely different from what they do today. And I think the slowness of it made the moments that you wanted people to be sort of scared...then we could go as fast as we liked because you've sucked people into a corner and then attacked them, so to speak. And I think that's how it worked."[50] The first cut of the film was over three hours long; further editing trimmed the final version to just under two hours.[50][51]

One scene that was cut from the film occurred during Ripley's final escape from the Nostromo; she encounters Dallas and Brett, who have been partially cocooned by the Alien. O'Bannon had intended the scene to indicate that Brett was becoming an alien egg, while Dallas was held nearby to be implanted by the resulting facehugger.[34] Production designer Michael Seymour later suggested that Dallas had "become sort of food for the alien creature",[48] while Ivor Powell suggested that "Dallas is found in the ship as an egg, still alive."[50] Scott remarked, "they're morphing, metamorphosing, they are changing into...being consumed, I guess, by whatever the Alien's organism is...into an egg." The scene was cut partly because it did not look realistic enough, but also because it slowed the pace of the escape sequence.[34][49] Tom Skerritt remarked that "The picture had to have that pace. Her trying to get the hell out of there, we're all rooting for her to get out of there, and for her to slow up and have a conversation with Dallas was not appropriate."[50] The footage was included with other deleted scenes as a special feature on the Laserdisc release of Alien, and a shortened version of it was reinserted into the 2003 Director's Cut, which was re-released in theaters and on DVD.[34][52]

Music[edit]

Main article: Alien (soundtrack)

Jerry Goldsmith composed the music for Alien.

The musical score for Alien was composed by Jerry Goldsmith, conducted by Lionel Newman, and performed by the National Philharmonic Orchestra. Scott had originally wanted the film to be scored by Isao Tomita, but 20th Century Fox wanted a more familiar composer and Goldsmith was recommended by then-president of Fox Alan Ladd Jr.[53] Goldsmith wanted to create a sense of romanticism and lyrical mystery in the film's opening scenes, which would build throughout the film to suspense and fear.[50] Scott did not like Goldsmith's original main title piece, however, so Goldsmith rewrote it as "the obvious thing: weird and strange, and which everybody loved."[50][53] Another source of tension was editor Terry Rawlings' choice to use pieces of Goldsmith's music from previous films, including a piece from Freud: The Secret Passion, and to use an excerpt from Howard Hanson's Symphony No. 2 ("Romantic") for the end credits.[50][53][54][55]

Scott and Rawlings had also become attached to several of the musical cues they had used for the temporary score while editing the film, and re-edited some of Goldsmith's cues and rescored several sequences to match these cues and even left the temporary score in place in some parts of the finished film.[50] Goldsmith later remarked, "you can see that I was sort of like going at opposite ends of the pole with the filmmakers."[50] Nevertheless, Scott praised Goldsmith's score as "full of dark beauty"[53] and "seriously threatening, but beautiful."[50] It was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score, a Grammy Award for Best Soundtrack Album, and a BAFTA Award for Best Film Music.[citation needed] The score has been released as a soundtrack album in several versions with different tracks and sequences.[56]

Design[edit]

Creature effects[edit]

Further information on the creature: Alien (creature in Alien franchise)

A man covered with sweat lays on a medical examination table, with a spider-like alien creature covering his face. The creature is beige in color and has four long, thin fingers on either side of its body that grasp tightly around the man's head, and its long tail is coiled around his neck.

The "facehugger" was the first creature Giger designed for the film, giving it human-like fingers and a long tail.[22][57]

The head and tail of an alien creature is emerging from the ruptured chest cavity of a dead man. The small eyeless creature is beige in color, has sharp metallic-looking teeth and a long segmented tail. A significant amount of blood covers the creature and the man's body.

The "chestburster" was shoved up through the table and a false torso by a puppeteer.[22] The scene has been recognized as one of the film's most memorable.

O'Bannon introduced Scott to the artwork of H. R. Giger; both of them felt that his painting Necronom IV was the type of representation they wanted for the film's antagonist and began asking the studio to hire him as a designer.[38][40] 20th Century Fox initially believed Giger's work was too ghastly for audiences, but the Brandywine team were persistent and eventually won out.[40] According to Gordon Carroll: "The first second that Ridley saw Giger's work, he knew that the biggest single design problem, maybe the biggest problem in the film, had been solved."[38] Scott flew to Zürich to meet Giger and recruited him to work on all aspects of the Alien and its environment including the surface of the planetoid, the derelict spacecraft, and all four forms of the Alien from the egg to the adult.[38][40]

The scene of Kane inspecting the egg was shot in postproduction. A fiberglass egg was used so that actor John Hurt could shine his light on it and see movement inside, which was provided by Scott fluttering his hands inside the egg while wearing rubber gloves.[58] The top of the egg was hydraulic, and the innards were a cow's stomach and tripe.[22][58] Test shots of the eggs were filmed using hen's eggs, and this footage was used in early teaser trailers. For this reason, the image of a hen's egg was used on the poster, and has become emblematic of the franchise as a whole—as opposed to the Alien egg that appears in the finished film.[58]

The "facehugger" and its proboscis, which was made of a sheep's intestine, were shot out of the egg using high-pressure air hoses. The shot was reversed and slowed down in editing to prolong the effect and reveal more detail.[22][58] The facehugger itself was the first creature that H.R. Giger designed for the film, going through several versions in different sizes before deciding on a small creature with human-like fingers and a long tail.[22][57] Dan O'Bannon, with help from Ron Cobb, drew his own version based on Giger's design, which became the final version.[57] Cobb came up with the idea that the creature could have a powerful acid for blood, a characteristic that would carry over to the adult Alien and would make it impossible for the crew to kill it by conventional means, such as guns or explosives, since the acid would burn through the ship's hull.[28] For the scene in which the dead facehugger is examined, Scott used pieces of fish and shellfish to create its viscera.[22][58]

The design of the "chestburster" was inspired by Francis Bacon's 1944 painting Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion.[22] Giger's original design, which was refined, resembled a plucked chicken.[22] Screenwriter Dan O'Bannon credits his experiences with Crohn's disease for inspiring the chest-busting scene.[59]

For the filming of the chestburster scene, the cast members knew that the creature would be bursting out of Hurt, and had seen the chestburster puppet, but they had not been told that fake blood would also be bursting out in every direction from high-pressure pumps and squibs.[18][60] The scene was shot in one take using an artificial torso filled with blood and viscera, with Hurt's head and arms coming up from underneath the table. The chestburster was shoved up through the torso by a puppeteer who held it on a stick. When the creature burst through the chest, a stream of blood shot directly at Cartwright, shocking her enough that she fell over and went into hysterics.[18][22][24] According to Tom Skerritt, "What you saw on camera was the real response. She had no idea what the hell happened. All of a sudden this thing just came up."[22] The creature then runs off-camera, an effect accomplished by cutting a slit in the table for the puppeteer's stick to go through and passing an air hose through the puppet's tail to make it whip about.[22]

The real-life surprise of the actors gave the scene an intense sense of realism and made it one of the film's most memorable moments. During preview screenings, the crew noticed that some viewers would move towards the back of the theater so as not to be too close to the screen during the sequence.[51] The scene has frequently been called one of the most memorable moments in cinema history.[citation needed] In 2007, Empire named it as the greatest 18-rated moment in film, ranking it above the decapitation scene in The Omen (1976) and the transformation sequence in An American Werewolf in London (1981).[61]

For the scene in which Ash is revealed to be an android, a puppet was created of the character's torso and upper body, which was operated from underneath.[44] During a preview screening of the film, this scene caused an usher to faint.[51][62] In the following scene, Ash's head is placed on a table and reactivated; for portions of this scene, an animatronic head was made using a face cast of the actor, Ian Holm.[49] However, the latex of the head shrank while curing and the result was not entirely convincing.[44] For the bulk of the scene, Holm knelt under the table with his head coming up through a hole. Milk, caviar, pasta, fiber optics, and Foley's Urinary Catheters were combined to form the android's innards.[44][49]

The Alien[edit]

Giger made several conceptual paintings of the adult Alien before settling on the final version. He sculpted the creature's body using plasticine, incorporating pieces such as vertebrae from snakes and cooling tubes from a Rolls-Royce.[13][22] The creature's head was manufactured separately by Carlo Rambaldi, who had worked on the aliens in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.[63] Rambaldi followed Giger's designs closely, making some modifications to incorporate the moving parts that would animate the jaw and inner mouth.[22] A system of hinges and cables was used to operate the creature's rigid tongue, which protruded from its mouth and featured a second mouth at its tip with its own set of movable teeth.[22] The final head had about 900 moving parts and points of articulation.[22] Part of a human skull was used as the "face", and was hidden under the smooth, translucent cover of the head.[13] Rambaldi's original Alien jaw is now on display in the Smithsonian Institution,[49] while in April 2007, the original Alien suit was sold at auction.[64] Copious amounts of K-Y Jelly were used to simulate saliva and to give the Alien an overall slimy appearance.[22][57] The creature's vocalizations were provided by Percy Edwards, a voice artist famous for providing bird sounds for British television throughout the 1960s and 1970s, as well as the whale sounds for Orca: Killer Whale (1977).[53][65]

For most of the film's scenes, the Alien was portrayed by Bolaji Badejo. A latex costume was made to fit Badejo's slender 6-foot-10-inch (208 cm) frame by taking a full-body plaster cast.[22][24] Scott later commented that the Alien "takes on elements of the host – in this case, a man."[40] Badejo attended t'ai chi and mime classes to create convincing movements for the Alien.[13][22] For some scenes, such as when the Alien lowers itself from the ceiling to kill Brett, the creature was portrayed by stuntmen Eddie Powell and Roy Scammell[24][25]—Powell, in costume, was suspended on wires and then lowered in an unfurling motion.[22][58]

Scott chose not to show the full Alien for most of the film, keeping most of its body in shadow to create a sense of terror and heighten suspense. The audience could thus project their own fears into imagining what the rest of the creature might look like:[22] "Every movement is going to be very slow, very graceful, and the Alien will alter shape so you never really know exactly what he looks like."[24] Scott said:

"I've never liked horror films before, because in the end it's always been a man in a rubber suit. Well, there's one way to deal with that. The most important thing in a film of this type is not what you see, but the effect of what you think you saw."

— Ridley Scott[24]

The Alien has been referred to as "one of the most iconic movie monsters in film history", and its biomechanical appearance and sexual overtones have been frequently noted.[66]Roger Ebert remarked that "Alien uses a tricky device to keep the alien fresh throughout the movie: It evolves the nature and appearance of the creature, so we never know quite what it looks like or what it can do...The first time we get a good look at the alien, as it bursts from the chest of poor Kane (John Hurt). It is unmistakably phallic in shape, and the critic Tim Dirks mentions its 'open, dripping vaginal mouth.'"[45]

Sets[edit]

The sets of the Nostromo's three decks were each created almost entirely in one piece, with each deck occupying a separate stage. The actors had to navigate through the hallways that connected the stages, adding to the film's sense of claustrophobia and realism.[24][44][57] The sets used large transistors and low-resolution computer screens to give the ship a "used", industrial look and make it appear as though it was constructed of "retrofitted old technology".[48] Ron Cobb created industrial-style symbols and color-coded signs for various areas and aspects of the ship.[48] The company that owns the Nostromo is not named in the film, and is referred to by the characters as "the company". However, the name and logo of the company appears on several set pieces and props such as computer monitors and beer cans as "Weylan-Yutani".[67] Cobb created the name to imply a business alliance between Britain and Japan, deriving "Weylan" from the British Leyland Motor Corporation and "Yutani" from the name of his Japanese neighbor.[68][69] The 1986 sequel, Aliens, named the company as "Weyland-Yutani",[68][70] and it has remained a central aspect of the film franchise.

Art director Roger Christian used scrap metal and parts to create set pieces and props to save money, a technique he employed while working on Star Wars.[48][71] For example, some of the Nostromo's corridors were created from portions of scrapped bomber aircraft, and a mirror was used to create the illusion of longer corridors in the below-deck area.[48] Special-effects supervisors Brian Johnson and Nick Allder made many of the set pieces and props function, including moving chairs, computer monitors, motion trackers, and flamethrowers.[18][24]

H. R. Giger designed and worked on all of the alien aspects of the film, which he designed to appear organic and biomechanical in contrast to the industrial look of the Nostromo and its human elements.[24][48] For the interior of the derelict spacecraft and egg chamber, he used dried bones with plaster to sculpt much of the scenery and elements.[24][48] Veronica Cartwright described Giger's sets as "so erotic...it's big vaginas and penises...the whole thing is like you're going inside of some sort of womb or whatever...it's sort of visceral".[48] The set with the deceased alien creature, which the production team nicknamed the "space jockey", proved problematic, as 20th Century Fox did not want to spend the money for such an expensive set that would only be used for one scene. Scott described the set as the cockpit or driving deck of the mysterious ship, and the production team was able to convince the studio that the scene was important to impress the audience and make them aware that this was not a B movie.[48][58] To save money, only one wall of the set was created, and the "space jockey" sat atop a disc that could be rotated to facilitate shots from different angles in relation to the actors.[24][58] Giger airbrushed the entire set and the "space jockey" by hand.[48][58]

The origin of the jockey creature was not explored in the film, but Scott later theorized that it might have been the ship's pilot, and that the ship might have been a weapons-carrier capable of dropping alien eggs onto a planet so that the aliens could use the local lifeforms as hosts. In early versions of the script, the eggs were to be located in a separate pyramid structure, which would be found later by the Nostromo crew and would contain statues and hieroglyphs depicting the alien reproductive cycle, contrasting the human, alien, and space-jockey cultures.[28] Cobb, Foss, and Giger each created concept artwork for these sequences, but they were eventually discarded due to budgetary concerns and the need to shorten the film.[24] Instead, the egg chamber was set inside the derelict ship and was filmed on the same set as the space-jockey scene; the entire disc piece supporting the jockey and its chair was removed and the set was redressed to create the egg chamber.[24] Light effects in the egg chamber were created by lasers borrowed from English rock band The Who. The band was testing the lasers for use in their stage show on the sound stage next door.[72]

Spaceships and planets[edit]

I resent films that are so shallow they rely entirely on their visual effects, and of course science-fiction films are notorious for this. I've always felt that there's another way to do it: a lot of effort should be expended toward rendering the environment of the spaceship, or space travel, whatever the fantastic setting of your story should be–as convincingly as possible, but always in the background. That way the story and the characters emerge and they become more real.

—Ron Cobb on his designs for Alien[24]

O'Bannon brought in artists Ron Cobb and Chris Foss, with whom he had worked on Dark Star and Dune, respectively, to work on designs for the human aspects of the film such as the spaceship and space suits.[38][68] Cobb created hundreds of preliminary sketches of the interiors and exteriors of the ship, which went through many design concepts and possible names such as Leviathan and Snark as the script was developed. The final name of the ship was derived from the title of Joseph Conrad's 1904 novel Nostromo, while the escape shuttle, called Narcissus in the script, was named after Conrad's 1897 novellaThe Nigger of the 'Narcissus'.[67] The production team particularly praised Cobb's ability to depict the interior settings of the ship in a realistic and believable manner. Under Scott's direction, the design of the Nostromo shifted towards an 800-foot-long (240 m) tug towing a refining platform 2 miles (3.2 km) long and 1.5 miles (2.4 km) wide.[24] Cobb also created some conceptual drawings of the Alien, but these were not used.[38][68]Moebius was attached to the project for a few days, as well, and his costume renderings served as the basis for the final space suits created by costume designer John Mollo.[24][68]

The spaceships and planets for the film were shot using models and miniatures. These included models of the Nostromo, its attached mineral refinery, the escape shuttle Narcissus, the alien planetoid, and the exterior and interior of the derelict spacecraft. Visual-effects supervisor Brian Johnson and supervising modelmaker Martin Bower and their team worked at Bray Studios, roughly 25 miles (40 km) from Shepperton Studios.[73][74] The designs of the Nostromo and its attachments were based on combinations of Scott's storyboards and Ron Cobb's conceptual drawings.[73] The basic outlines of the models were made of wood and plastic, and most of the fine details were added from model kits of warships, tanks, and World War II bombers.

Three models of the Nostromo were made: a 12-inch (30 cm) version for medium and long shots, a 4-foot (1.2 m) version for rear shots, and a 12-foot (3.7 m), 7-short-ton (6.4 t) rig for the undocking and planetoid surface sequences.[24][74] Scott insisted on numerous changes to the models even as filming was taking place, leading to conflicts with the modeling and filming teams. The Nostromo was originally yellow, and the team filmed shots of the models for six weeks before Johnson left to work on The Empire Strikes Back. Scott then ordered it changed to gray, and the team had to begin shooting again from scratch.[73][74] He asked that more and more pieces be added to the model such that the final version (with the refinery) required a metal framework so that it could be hoisted by a forklift. He also took a hammer and chisel to sections of the refinery, knocking off many of the spires that Bower had spent weeks creating. Scott also had disagreements with miniature-effects cinematographer Dennis Ayling over how to light the models.[73]

A separate model, about 40 feet (12 m) long, was created for the Nostromo's underside from which the Narcissus would detach and from which Kane's body would be launched during the funeral scene. Bower carved Kane's burial shroud out of wood; it was launched through the hatch using a small catapult and filmed at high speed. The footage was slowed down in editing.[73][63] Only one shot was filmed using blue-screen compositing - that of the shuttle racing past the Nostromo. The other shots were simply filmed against black backdrops, with stars added by double exposure.[74] Though motion control photography technology was available at the time, the film's budget would not allow for it. The team, therefore, used a camera with wide-angle lenses mounted on a drive mechanism to make slow passes over and around the models filming at 21⁄2 frames per second,[24] giving them the appearance of motion. Scott added smoke and wind effects to enhance the illusion.[73] For the scene in which the Nostromo detaches from the refinery, a 30-foot (9.1 m) docking arm was created using pieces from model railway kits. The Nostromo was pushed away from the refinery by a forklift covered in black velvet, causing the arm to extend out from the refinery. This created the illusion that the arm was pushing the ship forward.[73][74] Shots of the ship's exterior in which characters are seen moving around inside were filmed using larger models which contained projection screens displaying pre-recorded footage.[73]

A separate model was created for the exterior of the derelict alien spacecraft. Matte paintings were used to fill in areas of the ship's interior, as well as exterior shots of the planetoid's surface.[73] The surface as seen from space during the landing sequence was created by painting a globe white, then mixing chemicals and dyes onto transparencies and projecting them onto it.[24][74] The planetoid was not named in the film, but some drafts of the script gave it the name Acheron[13] after the river which in Greek mythology is described as the "stream of woe"; it is a branch of the river Styx, and forms the border of Hell in Dante's Inferno. The 1986 sequel Aliens named the planetoid as "LV-426",[70] and both names have been used for it in subsequent expanded-universe media such as comic books and video games.

Title sequence[edit]

The title sequence was developed by R/Greenberg Associates "to instill a sense of foreboding, the letters broken into pieces, the space between them unsettling."[75] It is referenced as one of the most iconic opening sequences of all time.[76]

Release[edit]

"It was the most incredible preview I've ever been in. I mean, people were screaming and running out of the theater."[62]

—Editor Terry Rawlings describing the film's screening in Dallas.

An initial screening of Alien for 20th Century Fox representatives in St. Louis was marred by poor sound. A subsequent screening in a newer theater in Dallas went significantly better, eliciting genuine fright from the audience.[62] Two theatrical trailers were shown to the public. The first consisted of rapidly changing still images set to some of Jerry Goldsmith's electronic music from Logan's Run, with the tagline in both the trailer and on the teaser poster "A word of warning...". The second used test footage of a hen's egg set to part of Goldsmith's Alien score.[51] The film was previewed in various American cities in the spring of 1979[51] and was promoted with the tagline "In space, no one can hear you scream."[62][77]

Alien was rated "R" in the United States, "X" in the United Kingdom, and "M" in Australia.[41] In the UK, the British Board of Film Censors almost passed the film as an "AA" (for ages 14 and over), although concerns existed over the prevalent sexual imagery. 20th Century Fox eventually relented in pushing for an AA certificate after deciding that an X rating would make it easier to sell as a horror film.[78]

Alien opened in a limited release in American theaters on May 25, 1979.[77][79] The film had no formal premiere, yet moviegoers lined up for blocks to see it at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, where a number of models, sets, and props were displayed outside to promote it during its first run.[51][62] It received a wide release in the United States on June 22.[80] Certain Jewish rabbiset fire to the model of the space jockey, believing it to be the work of the devil.[51] In the United Kingdom, Alien premiered at a gala performance at the Edinburgh Film Festival on September 1, 1979,[81][82] before starting an exclusive run at the Odeon Leicester Square in London on Thursday, September 6, 1979,[83] but it did not open widely in Britain until January 13, 1980.[51]

Box office[edit]

The film was a commercial success, opening in 90 theatres across the United States (plus 1 in Canada), setting 51 house records and grossing $3,527,881 over the 4-day Memorial Day weekend with a per-screen average of $38,767,[5] which Daily Variety suggested may have been the biggest per-screen opening in history.[84] In its first 4 weeks it grossed $16.5 million from only 148 prints before expanding to 635 screens.[5] In the UK, the film grossed $126,150 in its first 4 days at the Odeon Leicester Square, setting a house record.[85] It grossed $78.9 million in the United States and £7,886,000 in the United Kingdom during its first run.[51] Including reissues, it has grossed $81.8 million in the United States and Canada, while international box-office figures have varied from $24 million to $122.7 million. Its total worldwide gross has been listed within the range of $104.9 million[5] to $203.6 million.[6] In 1992, Fox noted the worldwide gross was $143 million.[86]

Despite this apparent box-office success, 20th Century Fox claimed that in the 11 months since its release, Alien had lost the studio $2 million. Seen as an example of Hollywood creative accounting used by Fox to disguise the film revenue and limit any payments to Brandywine, the claim was decried by industry accountants, and by August 1980, Fox readjusted the figure to $4 million profit, although this was similarly refuted. Eager to begin work on a sequel, Brandywine sued Fox over their profit distribution tactics, but Fox claimed that Alien was not a financial success and did not warrant a sequel. The lawsuit was settled in 1983 when Fox agreed to fund an Alien II.

Critical reception[edit]

Critical reaction to the film was initially mixed. Some critics who were not usually favorable towards science fiction, such as Barry Norman of the BBC's Film series, were positive about the film's merits.[51] Others, however, were not; reviews by Variety, Sight and Sound, Vincent Canby, and Leonard Maltin were mixed or negative.[88] (Maltin reassessed the film upon the release of the Director's Cut and gave Alien a positive review.)[89] A review by Time Out said the film was an "empty bag of tricks whose production values and expensive trickery cannot disguise imaginative poverty".[90] In their original review on Sneak Previews, critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert gave the film "two 'yes' votes." Ebert called it "one of the scariest old-fashioned space operas I can remember." Siskel agreed that it was scary but said it was basically a "haunted house film" set "in a spaceship" and was "not the greatest science fiction film ever made."[citation needed] Siskel gave the film three stars out of four in his original print review, calling it "an accomplished piece of scary entertainment" and praising Sigourney Weaver as "an actress who should become a major star," but listed among the film's disappointments that "[f]or me, the final shape of the Alien was the least scary of its forms."[91]

Accolades[edit]

Further information: List of accolades received by Alien

Alien won the 1980 Academy Award for Best Visual Effects and was also nominated for Best Art Direction (for Michael Seymour, Leslie Dilley, Roger Christian, and Ian Whittaker).[92][93] It won Saturn Awards for Best Science Fiction Film, Best Direction for Ridley Scott, and Best Supporting Actress for Veronica Cartwright,[17] and was also nominated in the categories of Best Actress for Sigourney Weaver, Best Make-up for Pat Hay, Best Special Effects for Brian Johnson and Nick Allder, and Best Writing for Dan O'Bannon.[citation needed] It was also nominated for British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards for Best Costume Design for John Mollo, Best Editing for Terry Rawlings, Best Supporting Actor for John Hurt, and Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Role for Sigourney Weaver.[citation needed] It also won a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation and was nominated for a British Society of Cinematographers award for Best Cinematography for Derek Vanlint, as well as a Silver Seashell award for Best Cinematography and Special Effects at the San Sebastián International Film Festival.[citation needed] Jerry Goldsmith's score received nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score, the Grammy Award for Best Soundtrack Album, and a BAFTA Award for Best Film Music.[citation needed]

Postrelease[edit]

Home video[edit]

Alien has been released in many home video formats and packages over the years. The first of these was a 17-minute Super-8 version for home projectionists.[94] It was also released on both VHS and Betamax for rental, which grossed it an additional $40,300,000 in the United States alone.[51] Several VHS releases were subsequently issued both separately and as boxed sets. LaserDisc and Videodisc versions followed, including deleted scenes and director commentary as bonus features.[94][95] A VHS box set containing Alien and its sequels Aliens and Alien 3 was released in facehugger-shaped boxes, and included some of the deleted scenes from the Laserdisc editions.[95] When Alien Resurrection premiered in theaters, another set of the first three films was released including a Making of Alien Resurrection tape. A few months later, the set was re-released with the full version of Alien Resurrection taking the place of the making-of video.[95]Alien was released on DVD in 1999, both separately and, as The Alien Legacy, packaged with Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.[96] This set, which was also released in a VHS version, included a commentary track by Ridley Scott.[94][95] The first three films of the series have also been packaged as the Alien Triple Pack.

"The traditional definition of the term 'Director's Cut' suggests the restoration of a director's original vision, free of any creative limitations. It suggests that the filmmaker has finally overcome the interference of heavy-handed studio executives, and that the film has been restored to its original, untampered form. Such is not the case with Alien: The Director's Cut. It's a completely different beast."[97]

—Ridley Scott

In 2003, 20th Century Fox was preparing the Alien Quadrilogy DVD box set, which would include Alien and its three sequels. In addition, the set would also include alternative versions of all four films in the form of "special editions" and "director's cuts". Fox approached Scott to digitally restore and remasterAlien, and to restore several scenes which had been cut during the editing process for inclusion in an expanded version of the film.[97] Upon viewing the expanded version, Scott felt that it was too long and chose to recut it into a more streamlined alternative version:

Upon viewing the proposed expanded version of the film, I felt that the cut was simply too long and the pacing completely thrown off. After all, I cut those scenes out for a reason back in 1979. However, in the interest of giving the fans a new experience with Alien, I figured there had to be an appropriate middle ground. I chose to go in and recut that proposed long version into a more streamlined and polished alternate version of the film. For marketing purposes, this version is being called "The Director's Cut."[97]

The "Director's Cut" restored roughly four minutes of deleted footage, while cutting about five minutes of other material, leaving it about a minute shorter than the theatrical cut.[51] Many of the changes were minor, such as altered sound effects, while the restored footage included the scene in which Ripley discovers the cocooned Dallas and Brett during her escape of the Nostromo. Fox released the Director's Cut in theaters on October 31, 2003.[51] The Alien Quadrilogy boxed set was released December 2, 2003, with both versions of the film included along with a new commentary track featuring many of the film's actors, writers, and production staff, as well as other special features and a documentary entitled The Beast Within: The Making of Alien. Each film was also released separately as a DVD with both versions of the film included. Scott noted that he was very pleased with the original theatrical cut of Alien, saying that "For all intents and purposes, I felt that the original cut of Alien was perfect. I still feel that way", and that the original 1979 theatrical version "remains my version of choice".[97] He has since stated that he considers both versions "director's cuts", as he feels that the 1979 version was the best he could possibly have made it at the time.[97]

The Alien Quadrilogy set earned Alien a number of new awards and nominations. It won DVDX Exclusive Awards for Best Audio Commentary and Best Overall DVD, Classic Movie, and was also nominated for Best Behind-the-Scenes Program and Best Menu Design.[citation needed] It also won a Sierra Award for Best DVD, and was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best DVD Collection and Golden Satellite Awards for Best DVD Extras and Best Overall DVD.[citation needed] In 2010 both the theatrical version and Director's Cut of Alien were released on Blu-ray Disc, as a stand-alone release and as part of the Alien Anthology set.[98]

In 2014, to mark the film's 35th anniversary, a special re-release boxed set named Alien: 35th Anniversary Edition, containing the film on Blu-ray, a digital copy, a reprint of Alien: The Illustrated Story, and a series of collectible art cards containing artwork by H.R. Giger related to the film, was released.[citation needed] A soundtrack album was released, featuring selections of Goldsmith's score. Additionally, a single of the Main Theme was released in 1980,[56] and a disco single using audio excerpts from the film was released in 1979 on the UK label Bronze Records by a recording artist under the name Nostromo.[citation needed]Alien was re-released on Ultra HD Blu-ray and 4K digital download on April 23, 2019, in honor of the film's 40th anniversary.[99] The 4k Blu-ray Disc presents the film in 2160p resolution with HDR10 High-dynamic-range video. Several previously-released bonus features on the 4k Blu-ray include audio commentary from Director Ridley Scott, cast and crew, the final isolated theatrical score and composer's original isolated score by Jerry Goldsmith, and deleted and extended scenes.[100]

Cinematic analysis[edit]

Critics have analyzed Alien's sexual overtones. Following Barbara Creed's analysis of the Alien creature as a representation of the "monstrous-feminine as archaic mother",[101] Ximena Gallardo C. and C. Jason Smith compared the facehugger's attack on Kane to a male rape and the chestburster scene to a form of violent birth, noting that the Alien's phallic head and method of killing the crew members add to the sexual imagery.[102][103] Dan O'Bannon, who wrote the film's screenplay, has argued that the scene is a metaphor for the male fear of penetration, and that the "oral invasion" of Kane by the facehugger functions as "payback" for the many horror films in which sexually vulnerable women are attacked by male monsters.[104] McIntee claims that "Alien is a rape movie as much as Straw Dogs (1971) or I Spit on Your Grave (1978), or The Accused (1988). On one level, it's about an intriguing alien threat. On one level it's about parasitism and disease. And on the level that was most important to the writers and director, it's about sex, and reproduction by non-consensual means. And it's about this happening to a man."[105] He notes how the film plays on men's fear and misunderstanding of pregnancy and childbirth, while also giving women a glimpse into these fears.[106]

Film analyst Lina Badley has written that the Alien's design, with strong Freudian sexual undertones, multiple phallic symbols, and overall feminine figure, provides an androgynous image conforming to archetypal mappings and imageries in horror films that often redraw gender lines.[107] O'Bannon described the sexual imagery as overt and intentional: "I am going to put in every image I can think of to make the men in the audience cross their legs. Homosexual oral rape, birth. The thing lays its eggs down your throat, the whole number."[108]

Some have argued the film's narrative details and visual design were inspired by those of the 1965 Italian film Planet of the Vampires(top), such as a scene in which the crew discovers a ruin containing giant alien skeletons.[109]

Alien's roots in earlier works of fiction have been analyzed and acknowledged extensively by critics. The film has been said to have much in common with B movies such as The Thing from Another World (1951),[45][110]Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954),[111]It! The Terror from Beyond Space (1958),[32][66]Night of the Blood Beast (1958),[112] and Queen of Blood (1966),[113] as well as its fellow 1970s horror films Jaws (1975) and Halloween (1978).[45] Literary connections have also been suggested: Philip French of the Guardian has perceived thematic parallels with Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None (1939).[110] Many critics have also suggested that the film derives in part from A. E. van Vogt's The Voyage of the Space Beagle (1950), particularly its stories "The Black Destroyer", in which a cat-like alien infiltrates the ship and hunts the crew; and "Discord in Scarlet", in which an alien implants parasitic eggs inside crew members which then hatch and eat their way out.[114] O'Bannon denies that this was a source of his inspiration for Alien's story.[27] Van Vogt in fact initiated a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox over the similarities, but Fox settled out of court.[115]

Several critics have suggested that the film was inspired by Italian filmmaker Mario Bava's cultclassicPlanet of the Vampires (1965), in both narrative details and visual design.[116] Rick Sanchez of IGN has noted the "striking resemblance"[117] between the two movies, especially in a celebrated sequence in which the crew discovers a ruin containing the skeletal remains of long dead giant beings, and in the design and shots of the ship itself.[118]Cinefantastique also noted the remarkable similarities between these scenes and other minor parallels.[118] Robert Monell, on the DVD Maniacs website, observed that much of the conceptual design and some specific imagery in Alien "undoubtedly owes a great debt" to Bava's film.[119] Despite these similarities, O'Bannon and Scott both claimed in a 1979 interview that they had not seen Planet of the Vampires.[120]

Writer David McIntee, as well as reviewers for PopMatters and Den of Geek, have noted similarities to the Doctor Who serial The Ark in Space (1975), in which an insectoid queen alien lays larvae inside humans which later eat their way out, a life cycle inspired by that of the ichneumon wasp.[27][121][122] McIntee also noted similarities between the first half of the film, particularly in early versions of the script, to H. P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness, "not in storyline, but in dread-building mystery",[123] and calls the finished film "the best Lovecraftian movie ever made, without being a Lovecraft adaptation", due to its similarities in tone and atmosphere to Lovecraft's works.[46] In 2009, O'Bannon said the film was "strongly influenced, tone-wise, by Lovecraft, and one of the things it proved is that you can't adapt Lovecraft effectively without an extremely strong visual style ... What you need is a cinematic equivalent of Lovecraft's prose."[124] H. R. Giger has said he liked O'Bannon's initial Alien storyline "because I found it was in the vein of Lovecraft, one of my greatest sources of inspiration."[125]

Audience research[edit]

Findings from an international audience research project conducted by staff from Aberystwyth University, Northumbria University and University of East Anglia were published in 2016 by Palgrave Macmillan as Alien Audiences: Remembering and Evaluating a Classic Movie. 1,125 people were surveyed about their memories and opinions of the film in order to test some of the theories offered by academics and critics about why the film became so popular and why it has endured for so long as a masterpiece. The study discusses memories of Alien in the cinema and on home video from the point of view of everyday audiences, describing how many fans share the film with their children and the shocking impact of the "chestburster" scene, among other things.[126]

Legacy[edit]

Retrospective reception and lasting praise[edit]

In a 1980 episode of Sneak Previews discussing science fiction films of the 1950s and 1970s, the reviewers were critical of Alien. Roger Ebert reiterated Gene Siskel's earlier opinion, stating that the film was "basically just an intergalactic haunted house thriller set inside a spaceship." He described it as one of several science fiction pictures that were "real disappointments" compared to Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. However, in both episodes Ebert singled out the early scene of the Nostromo's crew exploring the alien planet for praise, calling the scene "inspired," said that it showed "real imagination" and claimed that it transcended the rest of the film.[127] Over two decades later, Ebert had revised his opinion of the film, including it on his Great Movies list, where he gave it four stars and said "Ridley Scott's 1979 movie is a great original."[128] In 1980, the film was included in Cinefantastique's list of the top films of the 1970s while failing to make the magazine's top ten. Frederick S. Clarke, the magazine's editor, wrote that Alien was "an exercise in style, refreshingly adult in approach, wickedly grim and perverse, that manages to compensate for a lack of depth in both story and characters." In 1982, John Simon of the National Review praised the cast of Alien, particularly Sigourney Weaver, and the film's visual values. Simon also wrote, "For fanciers of horror, among whose numbers I do not count myself, Alien is recommendable, provided they are free from hypocrisy and finicky stomachs".[130]

Despite initial mixed reviews, Alien has received critical acclaim over the years, particularly for its realism and unique environment,[66] and is cited one of the best films of 1979.[131][132] It is seen as one of the most influential science-fiction films.[133][134] It holds a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 125 reviews and an average rating of 9.11/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "A modern classic, Alien blends science fiction, horror and bleak poetry into a seamless whole."[135]Metacritic reports a weighted average score of 89 out of 100 based on 34 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[136]Halliwell's Film Guide awarded it a full four stars, describing it as "a classic of suspense and art direction".[90] Alan Jones of Radio Times awarded it five stars out of five, describing it as a "revolutionary 'haunted house in space' thrill-ride [...] stunning you with shock after shock", praising the "top-notch acting [...] and imaginative bio-mechanical production design", as well as "Ridley Scott's eye for detail and brilliant way of alternating false scares with genuine jolts, which help to create a seamless blend of gothic horror and harrowing science fiction".[137]

Critical interest in the film was re-ignited with the theatrical release of the "Director's Cut" in 2003. Roger Ebert ranked it among "the most influential of modern action pictures" and praised its pacing, atmosphere, and settings:

One of the great strengths of Alien is its pacing. It takes its time. It waits. It allows silences (the majestic opening shots are underscored by Jerry Goldsmith with scarcely audible, far-off metallic chatterings). It suggests the enormity of the crew's discovery by building up to it with small steps: The interception of a signal (is it a warning or an SOS?). The descent to the extraterrestrial surface. The bitching by Brett and Parker, who are concerned only about collecting their shares. The masterstroke of the surface murk through which the crew members move, their helmet lights hardly penetrating the soup. The shadowy outline of the alien ship. The sight of the alien pilot, frozen in his command chair. The enormity of the discovery inside the ship ("It's full of ... leathery eggs ...").[45]

David McIntee praises Alien as "possibly the definitive combination of horror thriller with science fiction trappings."[46] He notes that it is a horror film first and a science fiction film second, since science fiction normally explores issues of how humanity will develop under other circumstances. Alien, on the other hand, focuses on the plight of people being attacked by a monster: "It's set on a spaceship in the future, but it's about people trying not to get eaten by a drooling monstrous animal. Worse, it's about them trying not to get raped by said drooling monstrous animal."[46] Along with Halloween and Friday the 13th (1980), he describes it as a prototype for the slasher film genre: "The reason it's such a good movie, and wowed both the critics, who normally frown on the genre, and the casual cinema-goer, is that it is a distillation of everything that scares us in the movies."[46] He also describes how the film appeals to a variety of audiences: "Fans of Hitchcockian thrillers like it because it's moody and dark. Gorehounds like it for the chest-burster. Science fiction fans love the hard science fiction trappings and hardware. Men love the battle-for-survival element, and women love not being cast as the helpless victim."[138]

David Edelstein wrote, "Alien remains the key text in the 'body horror' subgenre that flowered (or, depending on your viewpoint, festered) in the seventies, and Giger's designs covered all possible avenues of anxiety. Men traveled through vulva-like openings, got forcibly impregnated, and died giving birth to rampaging gooey vaginas dentate — how's that for future shock? This was truly what David Cronenberg would call 'the new flesh,' a dissolution of the boundaries between man and machine, machine and alien, and man and alien, with a psychosexual invasiveness that has never, thank God, been equaled."[139]

In 2008, the American Film Institute ranked Alien as the seventh-best film in the science fiction genre as part of AFI's 10 Top 10, a CBS television special ranking the ten greatest movies in ten classic American film genres. The ranks were based on a poll of over 1,500 film artists, critics, and historians, with Alien ranking just above Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) and just below Scott's other science fiction film Blade Runner (1982).[140] The same year, Empire magazine ranked it thirty-third on its list of the five hundred greatest movies of all time, based on a poll of 10,200 readers, critics, and members of the film industry.[141] In 2021, Phil Pirrello of Syfy ranked it at number two in the "25 scariest sci-fi movies ever made". He described it as a "groundbreaking science fiction classic" and "a movie so influential that it's hard to think of a time before Alien".[142]

Cultural influences[edit]

"The 1979 Alien is a much more cerebral movie than its sequels, with the characters (and the audience) genuinely engaged in curiosity about this weirdest of lifeforms...Unfortunately, the films it influenced studied its thrills but not its thinking."[45]

—Film critic Roger Ebert on Alien's cinematic impact.

Alien had both an immediate and long-term impact on the science fiction and horror genres. Shortly after its debut, Dan O'Bannon was sued by another writer named Jack Hammer for allegedly plagiarising a script entitled Black Space. However, O'Bannon was able to prove that he had written his Alien script first.[143] In the wake of Alien's success, a number of other filmmakers imitated or adapted some of its elements, sometimes by using "Alien" in titles. One of the first was The Alien Dead (1979), which had its title changed at the last minute to cash in on Alien's popularity.[144]Contamination (1980) was initially going to be titled Alien 2 until 20th Century Fox's lawyers contacted writer/director Luigi Cozzi and made him change it. The film built on Alien by having many similar creatures, which originated from large, slimy eggs, bursting from characters' chests.[144] An unauthorized sequel to Alien, titled Alien 2: On Earth, was released in 1980 and included alien creatures which incubate in humans. Other science fiction films of the time that borrowed elements from Alien include Galaxy of Terror (1981), Inseminoid (1981), Forbidden World (1982), Xtro (1982), and Dead Space (1991).[144]

The "chestburster" effect was parodied in Mel Brooks's comedy Spaceballs. Near the end, in a diner, John Hurt does a cameo appearance as a customer who seems to be suffering indigestion. He turns out to have an "alien" in his gut, and moans, "Oh, no...not again!" The "alien" then does a song-and-dance, singing a line of "Hello, Ma Baby", from the classic Warner Bros. cartoon One Froggy Evening.[145]

Nintendo's long-running Metroid video game series, created in 1986, was significantly influenced by Alien, both in stylistic and thematic elements. As an homage to Alien, villains in the first Metroid installment were named Ridley and Mother Brain, after the movie's director and the ship computer, respectively.[146]

In 2002, Alien was deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" by the National Film Preservation Board of the United States,[147] and was inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress for historical preservation alongside other films of 1979 including All That Jazz, Apocalypse Now, The Black Stallion, and Manhattan.[148][149]

Eli Roth cites Alien as his primary influence, saying "I saw Alien when I was 8 years old. To me, it was like a combination of Jaws and Star Wars and that's the movie that made me want to be a director. It traumatized me. I actually threw up I was so nervous after I saw it but that's like the highest compliment you can give a horror film."[150]Ty Franck, one of the authors behind the sci-fi series The Expanse, credits Alien as one of his major inspirations.[151]

Merchandise[edit]

Alan Dean Foster wrote a novelization of the film in both adult and "junior" versions, which was adapted from the film's shooting script.[53]Heavy Metal magazine published a graphic novel adaptation of the film entitled Alien: The Illustrated Story, as well as a 1980 Aliencalendar.[53] Two behind-the-scenes books were released in 1979 to accompany the film. The Book of Alien contained many production photographs and details on the making of the film, while Giger's Alien contained much of H. R. Giger's concept artwork for the movie.[53] A model kit of the Alien, 12 inches high, was released by the Model Products Corporation in the United States, and by Airfix in the United Kingdom.[94]Kenner also produced a larger-scale Alien action figure, as well as a board game in which players raced to be first to reach the shuttle pod while Aliens roamed the Nostromo's corridors and air shafts.[94] Official Halloween costumes of the Alien were released in October 1979.[94]

School play adaptation[edit]

In 2019, students at North Bergen High School in New Jersey adapted the film into a play. The production had no budget, with props and sets developed from recycled toys and other items. Social media recognition brought Scott's attention to the play. He wrote a letter of congratulations to the students ("My hat comes off to all of you for your creativity, imagination, and determination") and recommended they consider an adaptation of his film Gladiator for their next stage production.[152] He donated to the school to put on an encore performance at which Weaver was in attendance. She got on stage before the performance to congratulate the cast and crew for their creativity and commitment.[153]

Sequels and franchise[edit]

Further information: Alien (franchise)

Sigourney Weaverbecame the star of the Alienfilms, reprising her role as Ripley in three sequels between 1986 and 1997. She did not appear in either of the Alien vs. Predatorcrossovers of the 2000s, but has expressed interest in doing a fifth Alienfilm.

The success of Alien led 20th Century Fox to finance three direct sequels over the next eighteen years, each by different writers and directors. Sigourney Weaver remained the only recurring actor through all four films: the story of her character Ripley's encounters with the Aliens became the thematic and narrative core of the series.[45]James Cameron's Aliens (1986) focused more on action and involved Ripley returning to the planetoid accompanied by marines to confront hordes of Aliens.[70]David Fincher's Alien 3 (1992) had nihilistic tones[46] and found her on a prison planet battling another Alien, ultimately sacrificing herself to prevent her employers from acquiring the creatures.[154]Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Alien Resurrection (1997) saw Ripley resurrected through cloning to battle more Aliens even further in the future.[155]

The success of the film series resulted in the creation of a media franchise with numerous novels, comic books, video games, toys, and other media and merchandise appearing over the years. A number of these began appearing under the Alien vs. Predatorcrossover imprint, which brought the Alien creatures together with the eponymous characters of the Predator franchise. A film series followed, with Alien vs. Predator in 2004, and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem in 2007.[156][157][158]

Sigourney Weaver has expressed interest in reuniting with Ridley Scott to revive her character for another Alien film. In the 2003 commentary track for the Alien DVD included in the Alien Quadrilogy set, she and Scott both speculated on the possibility, with Weaver stating: "There is an appetite for a fifth one, which is something I never expected...it's really hard to come up with a fifth story that's new and fresh...but I have wanted to go back into space...I think outer space adventure is a good thing for us right now, 'cause Earth is so grim...so we've been talking about it, but very generally." Scott remarked that, if the series were to continue, the most logical course would be to explore the origins of the space jockey and the Aliens.[159] Weaver supported this idea, saying "I think it would be great to go back, because I'm asked that question so many times: 'Where did the Alien come from?' People really want to know in a very visceral way."David Giler said that he, Walter Hill, and Gordon Carroll, the producers of the first four films in the series, would not be willing to produce another unless it was about the Aliens' homeworld and Weaver was on board (despite the fact that they were among the producers of Alien vs. Predator films). Weaver indicated that she would only return to the franchise if either Scott or James Cameron were to direct.[160] Cameron had been working on a story for a fifth Alien film which would explore the origins of the creatures, but ceased work on it when he learned that Fox was pursuing Alien vs. Predator, which he felt would "kill the validity of the franchise".[161][162]

In July 2009, 20th Century Fox announced that Jon Spaihts had been hired to write a prequel to Alien, with Scott attached to direct.[163] The script was subsequently re-worked by Scott and Damon Lindelof. Titled Prometheus, it went into production in May 2011, and was released the following year. Scott said in a statement: "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."[164]

Variety reported on February 18, 2015, that a new Alien film would be developed by Neill Blomkamp.[165] On February 25, it was confirmed that Sigourney Weaver would have a role in the film,[citation needed] the intent being to produce a direct sequel to Aliens, ignoring the events of later films, featuring the characters of Hicks and Newt.[166] Blomkamp's sequel was ultimately shelved by Fox in favor of Alien: Covenant, a continuation of Scott's prequel, Prometheus.[167]

Several computer gamesbased on the film were released, but not until several years after its theatrical run.[94]

Ancelotti makes shock return to Real Madrid

Gone!

Less than 18 months after he joined Everton as a surprise managerial appointment to succeed Marco Silva, Carlo Ancelotti has abruptly left Goodison Park to return to Real Madrid, the club that sacked him six Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen ago.

The Blue half of Merseyside was stunned by reports that broke late last night that the Italian was being lined up to replace Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu and events moved quickly today to the point that Ancelotti was confirmed as Real manager this evening.

It leaves Everton having to put their summer transfer plans on hold and scramble to draw up a shortlist of candidates to replace Ancelotti, with the likes of Eddie Howe, David Moyes and Nuno Espirito Santo among the early names being linked.

Zidane's decision to step down at Madrid had been on the cards as the 2020-21 season drew to a close and it sparked rumours that Ancelotti might be among the candidates to replace him, suggestions that the Italian laughed off during his final pre-match press conference of the season ahead of the Manchester City match.

The lure of Madrid proved too much for the 61-year-old, however, and it appears as though firm contact was made with his representatives last Friday, leading to a final agreement today that sees Ancelotti Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen a three-year contract at Real which will reportedly be worth less than half per year than he was earning at Everton.

Everton's board of directors were scheduled to hold an emergency meeting this evening to discuss the club's next steps.

“While I have enjoyed being at Everton I have been presented with an unexpected opportunity which I believe is the right move for me and my family at this time,” Ancelotti said once the club confirmed he had left for Madrid.

“I would like to thank the Board of Directors, the players, and the Evertonians for the tremendous support they have all given me during my time at the club.

“I have complete respect for everyone associated with Everton and hope they can achieve the exciting opportunities they have in front of them.”

Ancelotti was hired in December 2019 as the result of an ambitious move by Everton owner Farhad Moshiri with the hope of building a team capable of qualifying for the Champions League within the lifetime of his 4½-year deal.

He tempted James Rodriguez to Goodison with the promise of as much first-team football as he could manage while also driving the acquisition of Allan from his previous club, Napoli.

While Allan is likely to remain on Merseyside, Rodriguez's future is far less clear in the wake of Ancelotti's departure, particularly given his recent injury problems and the fact that he has openly admitted he moved to England to play under his former manager.

Ancelotti stabilised the Toffees' performances in the early months of his tenure before the team's form dropped off again with the resumption of the 2019-20 season following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Citing the need to overhaul the midfield, the decorated boss helped bolster the squad with the signings of James, Allan and Adboulaye Doucouré, acquisitions that sparked a scintillating start to 2020-21.

Everton were the early pace-setters in the Premier League and were still sitting second after Christmas before the season, not to mention the club's European-qualification hopes, was wrecked by a dreadful sequence of results at home in an empty Goodison Park. The Blues ultimately finished 10th after losing 5-0 to City on the final day of the campaign.

While Ancelotti's only full season at Everton was dogged by concerns over the absence of any discernible style of play and an inability to turn around that abysmal home form, he did oversee the club's best away record of the Premier League era with 11 wins on the road.

The hope and expectation was that with another summer to work with Marcel Brands and a first complete season with fans in the grounds, Ancelotti might have been able to lead Everton back to the upper echelons of the English game and to some long-overdue trophy success.

Instead, Moshiri and Brands must go back to square one as they seek to lay more of the foundations on which some stability can be built at a club that is now looking for its sixth manager in the space of five years.

Why has nobody asked the question of would the "Top 6" want him? Oh, hang on, this lot are bigger than any of them, aren't they?

I'd prefer he stayed as we must at some stage have some continuity with an accomplished manager at the helm but if he is to go then Everton should insist on at least the remainder of his contract as compensation and given their rumoured financial position that should be the end of all this talk.

As mentioned on another thread, perhaps his replacement should be that famous No 7 – Bond, James Bond – then we'd all be shaken but not stirred. With "M" - Moshiri, leading and "Q" with his funny ways and gadgets, or is that "K"?

It is all becoming the running joke.

I think we should change managers every season to satisfy the bloodlust for managers on TW, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen.

We could start with bringing back the Moyesiah (much loved and admired on here), then Sean Dyche, followed by Eddie Howe, Graham Potter etc.

Once we are done with the flavour of the month, usual suspects we could appoint a triumvirate of Hind, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, Edwards and Tasker to manage the team. After all, this management thingy is a doddle.

Arrivedercci Carlo, if you go, all the best, amigo.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 07:39:00

Looks like a small number rod Everton fans will get what they wish for. I don't think it is any coincidence Eddie Howe did a U-turn at Celtic last week.

Without a big-name manager and European football, the only way we are going to persuade class players to join is paying through the nose to get them. We are going to end up getting relegated within 2 years I think if we get Eddie Howe as manager.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 07:58:47

Not if Ancelotti turns them down Dan, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, and gets a new longer contract at Everton!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:22:56

No chance! Carlo will not risk his massive Everton pension pot for one season at Madrid, unless he's totally pissed off with our lack of ambition. I wouldn't trust Moshiri to get the right man in anyway, I'd guess it would be big fat Frankie Lampard.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:23:24

Are we allowed yet to wonder out loud who we'd get in his place or is that still considered a bit of a no-no?

It's unfortunate Perez doesn't read TW. If he did, he would know that Carlo is finished. He is yesterday's man according to TW football experts. So why would the biggest most demanding football club in the world even consider him as their next manager? It's a fucking mystery.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:32:21

Colin, you’ve missed out some bloke called Steve Cooper from Swansea. Also should Carlo go, I say sack the new manager already, after all he’s shite!

Good point Barry. That is clearly beyond me. Good enough for Real Madrid, but not good enough for us. It definitely is a mystery.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:42:25

Why not, Brian 54. I'll start the ball rolling; Enzo Nomarkoni from Italian third division side FC Pecorino.

He's a dynamic, forward thinking, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, progressive manager who will provide Tom Davies with a football brain, Alex fucking Iwobi with an iota of courage, and André ‘lead in his boots' Gomes with an increased spatial awareness and a quicker than sloth-like pace to his game.

After his third-loss-in-a-row start to the season, we can always replace him with our very Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, perennial saviour, Big Duncan Ferguson! A man anointed by god himself, Bill Kenwright.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:57:04

Nomarkoni out! Sack him, get rid, plays zombie negative football. Bellendotti from the Italian conference league is who we should bring in. Plays a 2-3-5 formation. Leaves his defence totally exposed, but fuck, can his teams score goals, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, but ultimately loses most games heavily, but boy, it’s great entertainment!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 08:59:14

If there is any truth to this, and he knocks Real back, it certainly shows how comitted he is to Everton.

Rob #58.

Ccan you remember when 2-3-5 used to be the only formation there was? Inside forwards, left-half and right-half. Them were the days!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 09:31:49

Surely Madrid would rather Conte!

If Carlo goes, which I wouldn't blame him for, we should be in the mix for Conte or Sarri. Enough of this talk of Big Dunc.

Colin, Rob - how about that guy Patrick Grant from The Great British Sewing Bee? Rumour has it he can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear!

Normally I would just dismiss this as British press speculation but I see the Spanish paper Marca is also reporting this and they are usually very Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen when it comes to anything to do with Real or Barca. Would the lure of going back to Real tempt Carlo? I am sure it would, but Carlo is an honourable man and I believe he would decline the offer.

Should he however go to Real, I dread to think who this club would look to appoint, I guess the same names will be bandied about as before Silva came, never mind Ancelotti: Howe, Dyce and numerous others who have won very little in their careers.

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 10:11:10

If Real Madrid ask, I think he'll go.

For all their financial concerns, they are still very much an elite club and (true or Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen Carlo will see them as a better match for him.

Let's be honest for a minute: Carlo is at Everton because he got the sack from Napoli and we jumped in quick with a lucrative offer – he's not with us for other reasons that get mentioned (project, new stadium, family club etc), although these are no doubt part of the picture. Let's also be honest and admit that we are probably something of an embarrassment at board level and he probably thinks he's dealing with a bunch of amateurs.

Real Madrid may approach Carlo as they see him as a safe pair of hands during a difficult time. I'd personally be gutted if true – not because I think he's doing an amazing job, but more because it would be a shame that we landed a top manager and, for whatever reason, it didn't work out. There's a huge manager merry-go-round unfolding at the elite level so, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen he did want out, he'll probably be able to find something else anyway?

I think it’s not Carlo we should be possibly worried about with this decision, it his his wife and daughter, and possibly son, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, their preferences may tip the balance.

Anyway, it’s good to know we have many other top options like Nomacaroni, Giuseppe Lossalotti etc to replace him.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 10:25:00

Even if Madrid come knocking, I can't see Carlo leaving. Real Madrid have an ageing squad and need a complete rebuild, with pretty much zero budget. Covid and the collapse of the ESL 'project' have hit them hard, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. It's why Zidane left and it's why Carlo won't go.

'Normally I would just dismiss this as British press speculation but I see the Spanish paper Marca is also reporting this and they are usually very accurate when it comes to anything to do with Real or Barca.'

Sure about Marca Brian? Check out the following:

Media Sources Rated for Football Rumours

Scores of European media outlets, individual journalists and ex-footballer pundits rated and placed into five different 'reliability tiers'.

Tier one being the highest rated, tier five the lowest with the single sentence description 'Don’t waste your time reading them.'

Marca is placed just one tier above that, tier four, which is described as 'Not to be trusted at all. These companies make money out of ensuring that you read them and they will make up anything to get you to harness advertising revenue.'

Marca shares the tier with such luminaries as Paul Merson, The Sun, The Mirror and Talksport.

Easy money making up and writing football rumours which get picked up and repeated globally, giving the false impression that 'there must be something in it if it's being so widely reported.'


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:02:27

Surely we all agree, after sacking Martinez, Koeman, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, Allardyce and Silva, that maybe it’s the players, not the manager, who need replacing?!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:12:14

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 11:14:59

It annoys me the way some media outlets are reporting on this.
"Real Madrid are considering hiring Ancelotti" etc etc.
There IS the small point of him having a contract with tiny Everton.
Perhaps I'm being over sensitive.
On another note a name I mentioned in an earlier thread is being touted as already lined up to replace Ancelotti, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, and that's Nuno ex of Wolves.

this is looking likely now. If it's true we've avoided a likely thirty million pay out in October, and a host of 29 year olds looking to burnish their pensions in the close season.
I am in parts relieved, and appalled. These deals don't just happen out of the blue, he'll have been approached weeks ago. He's treated the club miserably if it's true.
Having said all of that, I'll be delighted to see him out of the door.

Andrew, I’m a pragmatist so if he does go he will be replaced by someone else. I’ll be disappointed but clubs go on as does life. The last couple of months have been a huge disappointment so maybe it was Carlo, or maybe it was the players or both, I don’t know.

Hopefully, we will get some compensation for him and (fingers crossed) he is replaced with an even better manager (doubt that) but if people think a dynamic young manager is going to get this lot playing gegenpress then you’re in for a rude awakening.

I wondered why Big Sam turned down the WBA job long-term, now we know! Only joking. I'd be pretty annoyed if Carlo upped sticks so soon, if only because he made lots of the right noises, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, but ultimately like so many others in the game, principles don't seem to apply. However, he hasn't gone yet, and it may be a smokescreen for Madrid, but it would be nice if Carlo and or Everton refuted the rumour as soon as possible.

Who'd want to manage this bunch of multi millionaire has beens? There is no passion in the people who manage or play for this great club, Dunc excepted.

We seem to be a good place to feather your pension pot. How many manager changes do we have to make, was Big Sam bothered that the crowd was baying for his blood as he looked down at his expensive gold watch after another shit result? He was sniggering all the way to his villa in the Costa Lotta.

We have to settle for a manager a la Bielsa with a strategy and plan and stick with him. Who? Don't know. Someone who can turn water into wine maybe


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:29:02

Yes Colin 87, let’s hope Bill isn’t involved. His last 2 managerial appointments have brought us regular European football on a shoestring budget and our record Premier League points tally.

Well, well, well Carlo seems to be leaving? So much for all the cheap Ancelotti talk about rebuilding the club and the family feeling of walking the dog on Crosby Beach and loving Gormley's statues!

Does he really want to select the first line-up at Bramley Moore and that feeling of belonging to a great project and the restoration of the pride of this wonderfully historic club?

If he goes then there is no hope for anyone in the world of football, just always the bottom line. I am 69 in a few weeks and sadly my cynicism of the modern game can not sink any lower.

If Ancelotti goes after all the talk, who is worth trusting again! So many of you may not be upset and think he is not the man, but whether he is the saviour or not, he would have run out the door and his staure as a decent man has been shattered for me!

I think I will treat myself to a season ticket at AFC Rushden & Diamonds ten minutes walk away.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:41:13

Excellent point Kevin #97.

If Real really want him then he'll probably go - although Real have their worst team in years and are struggling financially (hence needing the superleague). Their best hope is the development of Rodrygo, Reinier, Vinicius, Valverde, Militao and other youngsters which isn't really Ancelotti's bag. So we'll see.

As for replacement's it might be time to reluctantly accept we were never going to spend enough to get the most out of Ancelotti. So someone better able to develop players and get a tune out of crap might be a better fit anyway. Not blessed with lots of obvious options mind you.

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 12:54:32

For continuity I'll be sad to see Carlo go. It's clear what player profiles we need this summer, and it would be up to Brands and the club to see if they could meet Ancelotti's expectations.

The flipside to that is that I do have some concerns that Carlo would want to sign more established stars like Ramsay and Pedro (yesterdays link) and that would be at odds with Brands wanting younger long term Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen he does leave we should appoint Santo.

I understand that you think that some on TW are negative for the sake of being negative. But isn't it right and proper that some have different views on Everton and whoever is the manager Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen the time?

I've been looking at some tweets and posts on other sites and there is a growing group of people that seems intent on blaming the 'negative' fans for hounding out previous managers and indeed if Carlo leaves of his own accord, for his departure too.

We appear to live in a society where opposition views are not tolerated because every individual believes that they are right regardless of the quality of arguments put forward by others.

If Carlo leaves, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, that's football, we move on to the next manager and hope that they make a fist of improving the team.

I do admit that Carlo leaving for Real Madrid will inevitably lead to many 'negative' fans blaming Everton and questioning the ambition of the club and all of the other stuff that they spout, but sometimes things just happen and it will be Everton's response to the events, should they happen, that will be crucial for our future.

A great club as I've banged on about many times. Close to my heart. They don't own my heart like Everton, but they are always Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen my mind.

On my last trip out, February 2020, what was really impressive is what they've done with the old Park Stadion. They were renovating it to be the primary pitch / stadium of the academy. It now sits proudly on top of a slope looking down on the academy training pitches where the youth teams play and train. All of it in the shadow of the new stadium, which itself is impressive. And what an academy that has been over the years.

It can't happen twice right? Lightning never strikes twice!!! You done it now; odds on Everton winning the league on the last game at Goodison in the 98th minute?

It's that time of year again. More bullshit. if it's true, and I doubt it, my pick would be Lampard. Some good young talent at Chelsea who may follow him.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:24:55

The compensation point is going to be interesting. Cos by rights, we can demand £30M from Real Madrid, which we know they don't have. But if Carlo plays hardball with us, says 'I really want to go, if you don't let me I think it will really affect my motivation going forward' . ie, "I will stink the place out and you'll have to pay me £30M in October" . I think we will release him with no compensation (that's what I'd do).


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:26:51

Barry, fully agree that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, be it for the manager of any player. With any player the answer is simple, if he's playing rubbish then he can be dropped. With a manager it's slightly different. Ok he can be sacked, but I don't think Moshiri will be sacking Ancelotti any time soon. He's been with us eighteen months, he inherited a bag of shite, he's played a handful of premier league games in front of home fans, unbeaten in them all by the way, he's had one proper transfer window to try and improve the squad, yet because some fans expected miracles overnight, which unfortunately didn't happen, they want him gone. As I said, Patience awaits no man, and Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen me, a gnat has more patience than some on here.

If he resigns and walks away, then that is a different matter!!

If this does come to pass then whoever the next manager is should have written into his contract that he can't buy players over 25 apart from a keeper.

Obviously, there has to be consultation between Brands and the manager, but we can't have any manager dictating which players we sign, particularly in the higher age group, unless of course, we remove the position of DOF, which if a manager like Moyes came in would be probably the only way he'd take us on again.

Coincidentally West Ham is looking for a Director of Football, even if Moyes renews his contract with them.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:37:32

If Moyes is to be considered, then it's clear who is pulling all the strings. Fuck me, I'm surprised Rooney hasn't been mentioned as a possible replacement if the teary eyed one is involved.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:37:49

We are approaching the best day in the Club's history since we won the Cup in 95.

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:42:30

Need Carlo out asap time is of the essence now.

The huge issue with Carlo and previous appointments is the arsing around early doors none of them grasp the scale of the problem till it bites them on the arse 6 months later. The new guy needs to be briefed that only a handful have potential beyond mid table - Digne, DCL, Mina and perhaps Richarlison and Pickford. It needs resolving asap preferably before the first game of the season.

We need Carlo's decision pronto.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:42:46

This is all a bit shocking to say the least. Carlo going, Moyes coming back if reports are to be believed. Hang on to yer hats!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:43:23

Will it be Bill’s (wet) dream team of Rooney/Ferguson/Cahill? Can he persuade the Moyesiah to return? Is Dave Hickson still alive?

Absolute laughing stock this football club. I’m glad I saw us win things because it won’t be happening again for a long long time.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:43:55

Now Ian’s big moment as it might actually happen- who do you want as manager?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:47:12

Wow, this really seems to have taken off.

I was in two minds about running it, then I saw Lyndon had updated the original rumour – although I can't figure out why it's displaying the original date at the top.

Quite a slap in the face for Everton if he goes, even though I think he has been poor in motivating our players and figuring out tactics that work for them. Not much to ask from such a great man.

This story even seems to be visible from space, can all the media outlets be wrong ? I am sure we will know in 24 hours.
If it happens then maybe Nuno has been the target all along knowing that Zidane was leaving and Carlo was wanted he left Wolves to bide his time.
I do know this we need a manager who will get the squad fit, organised and where everyone knows their role what is required of them.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:57:53

Totally agree we don't want anyone at the club who would prefer to move elsewhere. I suppose it would be inevitable that the club would try and hold on to Carlo or at least appear to do so.

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:58:48

This Fabrizio Romano seems to think it's all completed

Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, here we go! The agreement on the termination of his contract with #EFC is set to be completed, the two clubs are in direct contact then Carlo will re-join Real Madrid.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 13:59:37

I think it'll be Moyes. Kenwright will speak to Dunc Seamus Baines Unsy and they will all come back saying bring him back. The argument that the players aren't fit, and that we need somebody good in the transfer market, and a safe pair of hands will be made. Bill can now say that he got them Europe last year, unlike Carlo. And I think Moyes would like to move back to Preston (if he ever left) and get out of the way of the Porn Barons.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:00:53

Rumours come and go but some stick like shit to a blanket and eventually prove to be true – such as this rumour.

It will be a sad day for EFC because, despite the lack of success thus far, his name caused us to be linked with the better class of player and the next appointment in that regard will be a step down.

At least if it is the Nuno chap recently of Wolves, he just might get a tune out of Gomes and bring in one or two more of his diamonds such as quality players he has brought over like Jota, Neto and Jiminez. We can live in hope.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:01:11

I'm hearing he's agreed to leave. Staggered to be honest. Thought he had his heart set on a project. Where does that leave us now ? in the mire I guess but whilst I have been proud to have him at our club I've sensed he's somewhat over the hill and we have not improved under him. He's attracted some big names but the football has been woeful at times. WHO'S NEXT ?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:03:16

Barry @152

I do truly believe that we had Carlo at the wrong time, he is not used to managing a club with a few mediocre players. He has always had top players to work with.

I think we should be looking at someone who will get the club in the Top 4 first, something like Rogers has done at Leicester, win something then maybe in a few years time with a better calibre of players look at a manager Carlo's level.

Looks like Eddie Howe it is then according to a lot of reports - Everton in advanced talks with him.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:06:00

Lampard was a great player but he's done nothing to suggest he's anything other than a very ordinary manager.

Farke, Potter, Dyche are more in the category of managers that genuinely improve players and get a tune out of shit.

Santo has proved he can coach a conveyor belt of Mino Raiola clients to good effect.

Martinez may have matured a bit but probably wants the Spurs job (as will most of the better candidates), Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen.

Failing that, probably some nauseating links to Steven Gerrard and, less nauseating, the likes of Ten Haag (Ajax), Amorim (Lisbon) and Galtier (Lille).

None of these look like a great fit - even for those who have a different opinion of Lampard he doesn't really look like an obvious choice. Dyche is probably the best qualified but not really an appealing prospect.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:06:42

Not a chance these wanting the manager out will name his successor. They risk putting themselves up to be pulled if their choice of manager fails.

The new manager will not get us in the Champions League in his first season. The new manager will not win us a trophy in his first season.

Sack him before he gets the job. Save everyone a bit of time.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:07:40

Is this why Eddie Howe turned down the Celtic job?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:07:48

Mark @156, I can't argue with any of that, and I'm a bit surprised Real are so keen to have him. But it is a much better fit for him than Everton.

The main problem for a new manager would be an utterly shit squad, who neither have the quality to control games, nor the energy to get in the faces of the opposition and rattle them.

He'll either have Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen build a team around Richarlison, or around Tom Davies to get either of those elements. Which is not something that fills me with confidence.

Our wonderful game is becoming a disheartening fucking soap opera. Bread & Circuses by dint of global business.

Truth is, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, we can effectively discount differences of opinion on Ancelotti as a manger. Let's say we were Xforce Crack 2021 With Keygen Full Download Software Win+Mac, and everyone wanted Carlo to stay, so what? Chances are approaches like this would be even more likely to happen.

I have been a little disappointed in Ancelotti in some regard, not in others. There's no certain reading of the future but the probability that things may greatly improve over a period, is higher by a mile with this guy than anyone we've had in recent years.

"Instant" success just isn't a thing without City-type money. What a world we are in where being "Just" a billionaire rather than a multi-billionaire is inadequate to fight on an equal footing. And where the patience and understanding of this fact is equally absent.

Hope we all enjoyed the concepts of stability and continuity in our clubs/sport, because they've gone, expunged from the lexicon by global corporate interest.

Five minutes back, the Euro Renegades were apparently reigned in. Er. not really, it seems. On with the plunder. The gap is just going to get Kaspersky Internet Security activation code Archives. Look at the transfer rumours around the "Big" clubs, the fees mooted.

Great news. Will save us paying out all of his contract when we need to get rid at Christmas. We actually might get a football coach in because for the life of me, I don't know what Carlo is.

I'd be happy Potter or Bielsa. Howe underwhelms but I actually think he's a very intelligent man and wouldn't write him off, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. Whoever we get, needs to be a tracksuit manager.

Kevin Molloy you're missing your vocation. World class speculation and rumour mongering in all your posts today. You should set up your own clickbait football rumour bait. You'd be quids in.

'Paul Joyce has just confirmed it.'

That would be the RS leaning Paul Joyce who in October had a hissy fit with Carlo in a presser after the Goodison derby because our manager had the audacity to describe the Pickford-VDD clash as a football incident, simultaneously mentioning that James had picked up an injury early on by the flying Dutchman.

Pinch of salt.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:16:37

I'd take Nuno Santo over Eddie Howe. Lots of decent Portuguese players out there that he could bring in, and he'd probably get a tune out of Richarlison.

Bielsa would be fun. Don't suppose Leeds would be happy to part with him though.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:16:58

If Carlo leaves as seems more likely than not, what's the betting that Everton FC drags the appointment of his replacement until well into the Pes 2016 crack serial keygen

Due to the disruption, some of our better players such as Richarlison and Digne decide to seek pastures new and the new Everton boss is landed with huge problems before he even gets his foot in the door.

Wouldn't surprise me if Richarlison joined Real Madrid as part of the 'compensation package', as someone tweeted if Everton FC was an animal you'd put it out of its misery.

The Italian journo hasn't confirmed he's going. Nothing agreed yet.

So if that doesn't show ambition and self belief I don't know what does.
But all Carlo wanted was a last cushy number with Everton according to some on here.

Jeez, typical so much for building a foundation, “the project”, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, but the media circus seem to be on a frenzy on this one.

Moshiri would have to be asking questions, but also the house burglary and robbery and perhaps other matters may be brought into account.

Of getting relegated. Haven't we tried two of those recently?

Moyes? No thanks. We've been there before. Won nothing and gradually had our expectation played down.

I'll say it again. Regardless of the manager. Get better players.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:36:01

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:42:46

The only time Everton have won silverware since the war is when an ex-Everton player has been the manager. Arteta is probably out of the question, but step forward Big Dunc, together with a very savvy assistant.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:47:32

I don't like that perspective Jimmy, although clearly everyone is entitled to it.

I hate using them as an example, but it took Liverpool to step out of the boot room mentality and reinvent themselves in the modern game to win stuff again.

If we think that Evertonians (mostly non native ones) will only Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen win us trophies, we'll probably never win anything ever again.

I don't care where the manager comes from or who he's played for and whether he's played for Everton. Klopp never played for Liverpool. Ferguson never played for United. Mourinho never played for Chelsea and Wenger never played for Arsenal. Pep never played for City or Bayern Munich.

As always, first and foremost you need the players. But then if you want to succeed now, you need a fairly big name manager. Chelsea has just proven that. Lampard may have the potential, but it took Tuchel to come in and get a tune out of it.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:48:02

Why would any half decent manager come here, after one defeat they’re pulled apart on here. Same as the players.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:49:45

If Madrid have made an approach I can only see one scenario as nobody says no to Madrid.

If Carlo departs then the best of luck to the new manage as he will be taking over an absolute mess of a club. It will be some challenge to move the club forward, therefore, no matter who takes over, be it Nuno, Howe, Moyes, Potter, another world class German coach, I wish them well.

Of the candidates mentioned I think Nuno offers the best hope of success.

I don't think Moyes will leave West Ham, not with them in Europe and things having gone so well for him there. He might use the situation to improve his contract and his bargaining power regarding future Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen 01/06/2021 at 14:50:14

Not bothered if he does go, Carlos gravitas still got us 10th and the football was dire! There is no chance he would have got the spends to by the players he would require, to get us challenging again. We need someone who can get the best out of what's at their disposal and sadly - Carlo didn't know what to do with our lot. Does that make him a bad manager? No, just the wrong one for this particular job.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 14:52:33

If Ancelotti goes, there'll be him at Real, Koeman at Barca and Martinez as manager of the number one international side, Belgium. All were not exactly successful at Goodison. Interesting.

Keith @161
I really don't believe anyone employed in the game, at the highest levels, really concerns themselves with what us mere mortals have to say, be it good or bad. It's the large amounts of money on offer that they look forward to and if they get praise along the way that's a bonus. I had admired Carlo and thought he might do something for Everton but he has shown himself to be yet another mercenary in a pantheon of mercenaries.

Whoever Everton appoints to replace Carlo, I don't want to hear 'family club', 'nice place to work' etc I want to hear I'm here to win as many games for Everton as is humanly possible. All the other soundbites are meaningless.

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:04:31

Marc Hints nailed it: as much as most Evertonians are positive about Carlo, nobody is bigger than the club and if he wants to go Everton is better off without him. We need players, managers, coaches who, as well as being good at their job, really want to be at Everton.

The phrase “world class” gets bandied about in relation to Carlo but if it’s true that he’s asked to go, and I believe it is, there is nothing class about that at all.

Bielsa would be my No.1. How exciting would the ball be to watch. I'm so sick of watching poor football. Last time we saw anything decent was in RM first Season. No chance of course, we will end up with Big Sam again, he is available after all.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:11:18

Exactly Barry Williams.

My dogs are with me every morning at 6am listening, agreeing and nodding as I vent about Everton!

Really they just want the cheese cubes I take with me, but I have to believe in their loyalty to me. and Everton.

Gerard @177

Thanks, pointless keeping him and as you say nobody is bigger than the club. Its better having someone who wants to be there and is a good coach.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:11:40

FFS, Gerrard is being linked now. Done well in the Scottish Sunday league, but can he handle the intensity and pressure of the English premier league? Let the RS find that out, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:12:54

Give Bielsa or Rodgers(!) a blank cheque. Failing those, Graham Potter would be a good appointment – i'd have thought Moshiri will be after a 'name', however. Wouldn't mind Lampard either, he had Chelsea playing some good stuff at times and they were a little unfair to him in the end.

Gutted if this turns Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen to be true. Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen 01/06/2021 at 15:15:38

I have a feeling that the next manager will either take us to the promised land or be the final nail in the Everton project.

How the devil enjoys making the dark side happy, Everton's form tails off in the closing months, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, culminating in a humiliating defeat at the Etihad, his faves make third place in the table and the two manc clubs get done in their respective European finals and now our first and possibly only world-renowned manager jumps ship at the first opportunity. I would imagine even the most optimistic Kopite can't believe those events actually happened.

Think a little perspective needs to be put on the situation. The owner has squandered a good few quid on different approaches to get us challenging again.

None have worked, but over time the expectation level has risen! The money spend is a lot but nowhere near enough to buy success.

In reality, Everton are a top 10 team nothing less- nothing more. The gap between our good selves and those in the top 4 is millions!

This project still is very much in it's infancy and the long game is what it's about. The trouble is we expect too much and lose sight of the level we are really at.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:18:08

Rob. Go and get washing liquid, clean your mouth out and then go straight to Mass for confession!!

Okay, different spin on this. Has the club decided to move here? This club will never fail to break my hope, but I wonder how much of a "mutual agreement" aspect could be in this.

Especially if there's any truth in the poster above's statement that we're already in talks with a big name replacement.

Just please do not dress up Moyes or Howe as a big name. Don't let Kenwright near this one.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:20:48

Greg O'Keefe tweeted Everton has a long list of names including Benitez and Gerrard. As Greg notes the day gets more surreal.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:21:26

Soren - got to be the return of Marco "Stan Laurel" Silva, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, if we can't get Super Steve Cooper. Or how about Pulis?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:23:09

Can we please stop mentioning Howe and Potter, they are not managers of any substance or pedigree.
Someone posted Howe was an intelligent man, so was Einstein but he knew fuckall about football.
I'm shit scared at the moment, have visions of BK at a presser all teary eyed flaunting our latest fucking waste of a contract.
Im am genuinely scared as well lads.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:23:51

Soren, a veritable House of Horrors that lot. Tony Pulis? Is he still alive?🤣🤣


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:25:13

Okay, if this happens, here's an outside shot.

The Brentford manager.

You go one way or the other. Up and coming or established and experienced.

Experienced; I'd go for Benitez. I'll now go and get the washing up liquid and tooth brush!

But ultimately, give the coach the players. Players win matches.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:26:40

I don't want more managerial instability just now but if he does go, it might as well be now. Aside from the hefty compensation due, it means that the new manager will get his own budget to replace some of the players. Better now than halfway through a season when a new manager would inherit players he doesn't fancy.

It would also have the spinoff benefit of putting an end to Mr Hind's Ancelotti Out campaign! Till the next manager at least!


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:26:43

Will (195), Pulis, Silva, etc. They are finished. Steve Cooper!? No thanks lol.

What we can be sure of is that we will go for an out of work dude this time if indeed Ancelotti goes.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:27:46

I am holding my powder dry at the moment until something concrete is confirmed although I am told there is a bunch of Spanish reporters hovering around GP to confirm the outcome. Perhaps some of our local lads can confirm.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:27:54

Phil jagielka released by Sheff Utd. Kenwright already on Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen phone to him, offering him the managers job.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:28:35

So if he joins Real, will he still be espousing the need for bans and points losses?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:29:02

If Moyes goes back to Goodison then so will my season ticket.

Thomas Franke from Brentford would be my choice, although wouldn't be upset if it was Lampard, at least some of the kids would get a chance.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:29:11

Soren, just to clarify, as it's vitally important - I wasn't serious.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:29:31

I don't want Nuno. He's more negative than Ancelotti, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:30:21

we're a laughing stock and Ancelotti is a ffing tosser.
Why the fk do journalist keep on mentioning Moyes and Benitez?

will we ever amount to anything again?
why do we bother?

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:32:03

Lampard for me. Will be a perfect fit with the Everton project.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:32:04

Farhad is letting Blue Bill handle this one and I've just come from Bill's office, I can confirm most of the paperwork is complete and the new manager being appointed tomorrow will be Pep Guardiola.

Bill just has to finish up the compensation package with the Sheikh (Bill offered over 1 million Pesos) and by tomorrow, Bill will have Pep in front of the cameras will the new away shirt in hand.

Bill also had a long discussion with another leading candidate Antonio Conte, who was also locked in discussions with Bill but he didn't match the ambition of Bill as he's only won the league in two countries, also he was rather rude when listening to Bill reminiscing about his time in the boys pen.

I can also confirm Moyes, was also having talks with Bill and Bill really liked his game plan for "getting out alive" at Mordor and Old Trafford but he's very much second choice and provided no last minute hiccups with the Pep deal he won't be returning as manager.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:32:30

Will, Yes. My post was meant to be agreed with you but somehow it didn't lol. My apology.

Who do you want Ian?

I wonder how they were able to gauge when it went from 98 to 99%.


 Posted Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen 01/06/2021 at 15:34:20

That's an interesting shout Ian. Some of the in-laws are big Wolves fans, have been all their lives and love what he's done for them.

I'll admit, not followed them a lot as most of the inherited family are Villa, but when I have seen them over the past few years, they've played some good stuff. Their midfielders in particular have played positive football.

Admittedly, they had a poor season this year. Worse than ours.

But I'll agree. I don't know why, but I just don't instinctively see a connection there for him to be Everton manager.

Dave @ 197

It was me that said Howe was an intelligent man. I could add hungry, motivated and meticulous to that list of adjectives. I'd have concerns about his flexibility though, as others have mentioned.

As for Octane render cinema 4d r2 free plugin Archives. Brighton had the forth highest XP in the league last year. They create chances and play great football. Most of the players on the team have increased in value, some considerably. He's made Brighton a fairly comfortable Premier League side and his career is on an upward curve.

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:38:12

Congratulations Darren and Ian. Now we can move on lads. Who next though?

Scary times. I just hope the new man has the power and courage to tell Moshiri what players he wants.

No way do I want to see an Eddie Howe steady type with Brands bringing the likes of McNeil in for him as top players.

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:41:53

Soren, some interesting names on that list. Benitez, Conte, Jardim and Favre have the best credentials. The others look more like the standard Watford used to hire and sack repeatedly. It would seriously gall me to appoint Benitez and it's not like he's achieved anything for years. Conte looks more like a manager who'd want a bigger budget than we've got. Jardim hasn't really done anything since Monaco sold all their marvellous players Adobe Photoshop CS6.v13.0 crack serial keygen 4 years ago. Favre is now 63 and is probably too old to debut in the Premier League, albeit built a very good Monchengladbach side.

So I still like Ten Haag the best but we seem to now be the ruin of many a manager. Whether it would work out is anyone's guess. Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen 01/06/2021 at 15:42:18

I've just been looking at the Wolves' fans take on this. They all seem to love Nuno and were gutted when he was linked with Palace. But they generally seem to think Everton is a better fit and makes sense for him and the club.

Here's one quote:
"Would be just what Everton need to be honest, though I don't think the way we played last season will excite their fans. However we were electric for large parts of our first two seasons back in the PL."

They also seem to think we'd be in for Neves.

Gary Megson! How about McCall?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:44:54

Michael, maybe go back and sign Raul Jiminez as well? Can leave Adama Traore where he is though.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:44:58

Problem is Conor we are a shit show.

Why would the Brentford manager leave after taking them up?
Why would Potter leave a stable club for us?

My money is still on Dour Dave with Lampard going back to his boyhood club. these are very scary times for us.

For the record I would like Nuno, he's suffered a poor season and a lot of injuries to boot and still managed a decent placing all considered. Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen

Rob @ 224, you are correct! But I will keep asking. Perhaps the other arch critics would like to contribute a name?


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:47:41

If you look what’s happened over the last few weeks, it would seem that this was something that was being discussed for. just look at the display against City and the reaction. Howe pulling out of the Celtic job is also interesting although that could be a red herring

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:49:10

If Moshiri really is serious about making Everton a force in English football, perhaps this is an opportune moment to have a complete re-shuffle of the club, time for him to take control of his hobby and become proactive in events at Goodison rather than reacting to stuff.

If we stumble on as a club the way we have for the last few years, regardless of who we appoint as manager, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, there is only one likely destination and it isn't Bramley Moore.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:49:20

The wheels are falling off at Everton if this happens, even with the muted USM money underlying the project, we'll struggle to compete in the medium-term if managers like Ancelotti can and want to leave for jobs elsewhere so quickly. It sends out all the wrong messages. Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen YoWindow 2 crack serial keygen 01/06/2021 at 15:50:38

Ferguson and Jagielka.

Duncan can enthuse everyone for a game or two before realising the players aren't good enough.

Jagielka can put his arm around the players when they haven't performed and tell them it's okay, don't listen to the nasty crowd. "Don't listen to them Ross" or whatever it was he said.

If we revert to type here I will be fuming. If this is happening, we had best be thinking externally.

There are enough sentinmental old boys in the system. Move on Everton.

I can only think that Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen club have showed no resistance or determination to may be keeping Carlo and if that is the case then maybe either they weren't satisfied with the way the Carlo project was going, ie, quality of football, or maybe the players he wanted to sign were going against what Brands was trying to do.

The reason I am looking at it in that way is because only very recently he quashed these rumours stating he was happy at Everton Football Club.
If this is true, I will be sad because it means maybe ripping up one plan and having to start another which puts us back in both terms of recruitment strategies and players wanting to sign who now, without Carlo, may not want to.

If it's true, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, I wish him a fond Farewell.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:52:40

In all seriousness, though, if he Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, he goes, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen.

 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:53:59

17th is going to be a push next season. Carlo's signings won't be happy. Half the squad needs the boot.

New manager will want new players and we all know how long that takes at EFC.

Eddie Howe is awful. It will be as funny as fuck if it's Moyes tho… just to see the faces on the "Kenwright isn't involved anymore" sheep.

Absolute laughing stock of a football club.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:54:02

I hope the players are having a long hard look at themselves as, yes, most of them are average at best but the lack of effort and lack of basic skills must surely be in Carlo's mind when considering this one

Win-win for the players as they get at least another year to convince a new manager of how bad they are.


 Posted 01/06/2021 at 15:55:13

Next season in the balance on a personal note.

Alien (film)

1979 science fiction horror film by Ridley Scott

This article is about the 1979 science fiction film. For the franchise it started, see Alien (franchise).

Alien is a 1979 science fictionhorror film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Dan O'Bannon, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. Based on a story by O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett, it follows the crew of the commercial space tug Nostromo, who encounter the eponymous Alien, an aggressive and deadly extraterrestrial set loose on the ship. The film stars Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, John Hurt, Ian Holm, and Yaphet Kotto. It was produced by Gordon Carroll, David Giler, and Walter Hill through their company Brandywine Productions, and was distributed by 20th Century Fox. Giler and Hill revised and made additions to the script; Shusett was executive producer. The Alien and its accompanying artifacts were designed by the Swiss artist H. R. Giger, while concept artistsRon Cobb and Chris Foss designed the more human settings.

Alien premiered May 25, 1979, as the opening night of the fourth Seattle International Film Festival, presented in 70mm at midnight.[7][8][9] It received a wide release on June 22 and was released September 6 in the United Kingdom. It Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen met with mixed reviews on release but was a box-office success, winning the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, three Saturn Awards (Best Science Fiction Film, Best Direction for Scott, and Best Supporting Actress for Cartwright), and a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation. In 2002, Alien was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the Library of Congress and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. In 2008, it was ranked by the American Film Institute as the seventh-best film in the science-fiction genre, and as the 33rd-greatest film of all time by Empire.

The success of Alien spawned a media franchise of films, novels, comic books, video games, and toys. It also launched Weaver's acting career, providing her with her first lead role. The story of her character's encounters with the Alien creatures became the thematic and narrative core of the sequels Aliens (1986), Alien 3 (1992), and Alien Resurrection (1997). A crossover with the Predator franchise produced the Alien vs. Predator films: Alien vs. Predator (2004) and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007). A prequel series includes Prometheus (2012) and Alien: Covenant (2017), both directed by Scott.

Plot[edit]

The commercial space tug Nostromo is returning to Earth with a seven-member crew in stasis: Captain Dallas, Executive Officer Kane, Warrant Officer Ripley, Navigator Lambert, Science Officer Ash, and two engineers, Parker and Brett. Detecting a transmission from a nearby moon, the ship's computer, Mother, awakens the crew. Per company policy requiring any potential distress signal be investigated, they land on the moon despite Parker's protests, sustaining damage from its atmosphere and rocky landscape in the process. The engineers stay on board to effect repairs while Dallas, Kane, and Lambert head out Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen investigate. They discover the signal originates from a derelict alien ship Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen enter it, losing communication with the Nostromo. Ripley deciphers part of the transmission, determining it to be a warning, but cannot relay this information to those on the derelict ship.

Meanwhile, Kane discovers a chamber containing hundreds of large, egg-like objects. When he touches one, a creature springs out, breaks through his helmet, and attaches itself to his face. Dallas and Lambert carry the unconscious Kane back to the Nostromo. As acting senior officer, Ripley refuses to let them aboard, citing quarantine regulations, but Ash overrides her decision and lets them inside. Ash attempts to remove the creature from Kane's face, but stops when he discovers that its blood is an extremely corrosive acid. It later detaches of its own accord and is found dead. The ship is partially repaired, and the crew continue their journey back to Earth. Kane awakens with some memory loss, but seems to be otherwise unharmed. During a final crew meal before returning to stasis, he suddenly chokes and convulses. A small alien creature bursts from Kane's chest, killing him, and escapes into the ship, with Ash dissuading the rest from killing it.

The crew attempts to locate the creature with tracking devices and capture it with nets, electric prods, and flamethrowers. Brett follows the crew's cat Jones into a landing leg compartment,[10] where the now-fully-grown alien attacks Brett and disappears with his body. After a heated discussion, the crew decide the creature must be in the air ducts. Dallas enters the ducts, intending to force the monster into an airlock, but it ambushes and kills him. Lambert, realizing that the alien intends to aggressively kill the crew one by one, implores the others to abandon ship and escape in its small shuttle, but Ripley, now in command, explains it will not support four people and insists on continuing with Dallas' plan of flushing out the alien.

Accessing Mother, Ripley discovers Ash has been secretly ordered by the company to bring the alien back, with the crew considered expendable. She confronts Ash, who tries to choke her to death. Parker intervenes and clubs Ash, knocking his head loose and revealing him as an android. Ash's head is reactivated, and they learn he was assigned to ensure the creature's survival. He expresses admiration for the creature's psychology, unhindered by conscience or morality, and taunts them about their chances of survival. Ripley cuts off his power; as they leave, Parker incinerates him.

The remaining crew decide to self-destruct the Nostromo and escape in the shuttle. However, Parker and Lambert are ambushed and killed by the creature while gathering life-support supplies. Ripley initiates the self-destruct sequence, but finds the alien blocking her path to the shuttle. She retreats and attempts unsuccessfully to abort the self-destruct. With no further options, she makes her way to the shuttle and barely escapes as the Nostromo explodes, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen.

As Ripley prepares for stasis, she discovers that the alien is aboard, having wedged itself into a narrow space, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. She puts on a spacesuit and uses gas to flush the creature out. It approaches Ripley, but before it can attack, she opens an airlock door, almost blasting the creature into space. It manages to hang on by gripping the frame. Ripley shoots it with a grappling hook, but the gun catches as the airlock door closes, tethering the alien to the shuttle. It pulls itself into an engine exhaust but Ripley fires the engines, blasting the creature away into the depths of space. After recording the final log entry, she places Jones and herself into stasis for the trip back to Earth.

Cast[edit]

The seven principal cast members of the film stand in front of a white backdrop, in costume and holding prop weapons from the film.
The principal cast members of Alien(left to right: Holm, Stanton, Weaver, Kotto, Skerritt, Cartwright, and Hurt)

See also: List of Alien (film series) characters

  • Tom Skerritt as Dallas, captain of the Nostromo. Skerritt had been approached early in the film's development, but declined as it did not yet have a director and had a very low budget. Later, when Scott was attached as director and the budget had been doubled, Skerritt accepted the role.[11][12]
  • Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, the warrant officer aboard the Nostromo. Weaver, who had Broadway experience but was relatively unknown in film, impressed Scott, Giler, and Hill with her audition. She was the last actor to be cast for the film, and performed most of her screen tests in-studio as the sets were being built.[12][13] The role of Ripley was Weaver's first leading role in a motion picture, and earned her nominations for a Saturn Award for Best Actress and a BAFTA award for Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Role.[14]
  • Veronica Cartwright as Lambert, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, the Nostromo's navigator. Cartwright had experience in horror and science-fiction films, having acted as a child in The Birds (1963) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).[15] She originally read for the role of Ripley, and was not informed that she had instead been cast as Lambert until she arrived in London for wardrobe.[12][16] She disliked the character's emotional weakness,[13] but nevertheless accepted the role: "They convinced me that I was the audience's fears; I was a reflection of what the audience is feeling."[12] Cartwright won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance.[17]
  • Harry Dean Stanton as Brett, the engineering technician. Stanton's first words to Scott during his audition were, "I don't like sci fi or monster movies".[11] Scott was amused and convinced Stanton to take the role after reassuring him that Alien would actually be a thriller more akin to Ten Little Indians.[11]
  • John Hurt as Kane, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, the executive officer who becomes the host for the Alien. Hurt was Scott's first choice for the role, but he was contracted on a film in South Africa during Alien's filming dates, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, so Jon Finch was cast as Kane, instead.[13] However, Finch became ill during the first day of shooting and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, which had also exacerbated a case of bronchitis.[18] Hurt was in London by this time, his South African project having fallen through, and he quickly replaced Finch.[12][18] His performance earned him a nomination for a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.[19]
  • Ian Holm as Ash, the ship's science officer who is revealed to be an android. Holm was a character actor, who, by 1979, had already been in 20 films.
  • Yaphet Kotto as Parker, the chief engineer. Kotto, an African American, was chosen partly to add diversity to the cast and give the Nostromo crew an international flavor.[12] Kotto was sent a script off the back of his recent success as villain Dr. Kananga in the James Bond film, Live and Let Die (1973), and said he rejected a lucrative film offer in the hope of being cast in Alien.[21]
  • Bolaji Badejo as the Alien. Nigerian Badejo, while a 26-year-old design student, was discovered in a bar by a member of the casting team, who put him in touch with Scott.[13][22] Scott believed that Badejo, at 6 feet 10 inches (208 cm) (7 ft inside the costume) and with a slender frame,[23] could portray the Alien and look as if his arms and legs were too long to be real, creating the illusion that a human being could not possibly be inside the costume.[13][22][24]StuntmenEddie Powell and Roy Scammell also portrayed the Alien in some scenes.[24][25]

Production[edit]

Writing[edit]

Screenwriter Dan O'Bannon

While studying cinema at the University of Southern California, Dan O'Bannon had made a science-fiction comedy film, Dark Star, with director John Carpenter and concept artistRon Cobb.[26] The film featured an alien (created by spray-painting a beach ball and adding rubber "claws"); the experience left O'Bannon "really wanting to do an alien that looked real."[26][27] A "couple of years" later he began work on a similar story that would focus more on horror, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. "I knew I wanted to do a scary movie on a spaceship with a small number of astronauts", he later recalled, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, "Dark Star as a horror movie instead of a comedy."[26]Ronald Shusett, meanwhile, was working on an early version of what would eventually become Total Recall.[26][27] Impressed by Dark Star, he contacted O'Bannon and the two agreed to collaborate on their projects, choosing to work on O'Bannon's film first, as they believed it would be less costly to produce.[26][27]

O'Bannon had written 29 pages of a script titled Memory, containing what would become the opening scenes of Alien: a crew of astronauts awakens to find that their voyage has been interrupted because they are receiving a signal from a mysterious planetoid. They investigate and their ship breaks down on the surface.[24][27] He did not yet have a clear idea as to what the alien antagonist of the story would be.[26]

O'Bannon soon accepted an offer to work on Alejandro Jodorowsky's adaptation of Dune, a project that took him to Paris for six months.[26][28] Though the project ultimately fell through, it introduced him to several artists whose work gave him ideas for his science-fiction story including Chris Foss, H. R. Giger, and Jean "Moebius" Giraud.[24] O'Bannon was impressed by Foss's covers for science-fiction books, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, while he found Giger's work "disturbing":[26] "His paintings had a profound effect on me. I had never seen anything that was quite as horrible and at the same time as beautiful as his work. And so I ended up writing a script about a Giger monster."[24] After the Dune project collapsed, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, O'Bannon returned to Los Angeles to live with Shusett and the two revived his Memory script. Shusett suggested that O'Bannon use one of his other film ideas, about gremlins infiltrating a B-17 bomber during World War II, and set it on the spaceship as the second half of the story.[24][28] The working title of the project was now Star Beast, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen O'Bannon disliked this and changed it to Alien after noting the number of times that the word appeared in the script. Shusett and he liked the new title's simplicity and its double meaning as both a noun and an adjective.[24][26][29] Shusett came up with the idea that one of the crew members could be implanted with an alien embryo that would burst out of him; he thought this would be an interesting plot device by which the alien could get aboard the ship.[26][28]

Dan [O'Bannon] put his finger on the problem: what has to happen next is the creature has to get on the ship in an interesting way. I have no idea how, but if we could solve that, if it can't be that it just snuck in, then I think the whole movie will come into place. In the middle of the night, I woke up and Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen said, "Dan I think I have an idea: the alien screws one of them [.] it jumps on his face and plants its seed!" And Dan says, oh my god, we've got it, we've got the whole movie.

—Screenwriter Ron Shusett[30][31]

In writing the script, O'Bannon drew inspiration from many previous works of science fiction and horror. He later stated,"I didn't steal Alien from anybody. I stole it from everybody!"[32]The Thing from Another World (1951) inspired the idea Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen professional men being pursued by a deadly alien creature through a claustrophobic environment.[32]Forbidden Planet (1956) gave O'Bannon the idea of a ship being warned not to land, and then the crew being killed one by one Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen a mysterious creature when they defy the warning.[32]Planet of the Vampires (1965) contains a scene in which the heroes discover a giant alien skeleton; this influenced the Nostromo crew's discovery of the alien creature in the derelict spacecraft.[32] O'Bannon has also noted the influence of "Junkyard" (1953), a short story by Clifford D. Simak in which a crew lands on an asteroid and discovers a chamber full of eggs.[27] He has also cited as influences Strange Relations by Philip José Farmer (1960), which covers alien reproduction, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen various EC Comics horror titles carrying stories in which monsters eat their way out of people.[27]

With most of the plot in place, Shusett and O'Bannon presented their script to several studios,[26] pitching it as "Jaws in space."[33] They were on the verge of signing a deal with Roger Corman's studio when a friend offered to find them a better deal and passed the script on to Gordon Carroll, David Giler, and Walter Hill, who had formed a production company called Brandywine with ties to 20th Century Fox.[26][34] O'Bannon and Shusett signed a deal with Brandywine, but Hill and Giler were not satisfied with the script and made numerous rewrites and revisions.[26][35] This caused tension with O'Bannon and Shusett, since Hill and Giler had very little experience with science fiction; according to Shusett, "They weren't good at making it better, or, in fact, at not making it even worse."[26] O'Bannon believed that Hill and Giler were attempting to justify taking his name off the script and claiming Shusett's and his work as their own.[26] Hill and Giler did add some substantial elements to the story, including the android character Ash, which O'Bannon felt was an unnecessary subplot but which Shusett later described as "one of the best things in the movie.That whole idea and scenario was theirs."[26] Hill and Giler went through eight drafts of the script in total, concentrating largely on the Ash subplot, but also making the dialogue more natural and trimming some sequences set on the alien planetoid.[36] Despite the fact that the final shooting script was written by Hill and Giler, the Writers Guild of America awarded O'Bannon sole credit for the screenplay.

Development[edit]

Despite these rewrites, 20th Century Fox did not express confidence in financing a science-fiction film. However, after the success of Star Wars in 1977, the studio's interest in the genre rose substantially, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. According to Carroll: "When Star Wars came out and was the extraordinary hit that it was, suddenly science fiction became the hot genre." O'Bannon recalled that "They wanted to follow through on Star Wars, and they wanted to follow through fast, and the only spaceship script they had sitting on their desk was Alien".[26]Alien was greenlit by 20th Century Fox, with an initial budget of $4.2 million.[26][36]Alien was funded by North Americans, but made by 20th Century-Fox's British production subsidiary.[37]

O'Bannon had originally assumed that he would direct Alien, but 20th Century Fox instead asked Hill to direct.[36][38] Hill declined due to other film commitments, as well as not being comfortable with the level of visual effects that would be required.[39]Peter Yates, Jack Clayton, and Robert Aldrich were considered for the task, but O'Bannon, Shusett, and the Brandywine team felt that these directors would not take the film seriously and would instead treat it as a B monster movie.[38][40] Giler, Hill, and Carroll had been impressed by Ridley Scott's debut feature film The Duellists (1977) and made an offer to him to direct Alien, which Scott quickly accepted.[24][40] Scott created detailed storyboards for the film in London, which impressed 20th Century Fox enough to double the film's budget.[11][38] His storyboards included designs for the spaceship and space suits, drawing on such films as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Wars.[11] However, he was keen on emphasizing horror in Alien rather than fantasy, describing the film as "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre of science fiction".[38][40]

Casting[edit]

Further information on individual characters: List of Alien characters

Casting calls and Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen for Alien were held in both New York City and London.[11] With only seven human characters in the story, Scott sought to hire Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen actors so he could focus most of his energy on the film's visual style.[11] He employed casting director Mary Selway, who had worked with him on The Duellists, to head the casting in the United Kingdom, while Mary Goldberg handled casting in the United States.[12][41] In developing the story, O'Bannon had focused on writing the Alien first, putting off developing the other characters.[38] Shusett and he had intentionally written all the roles generically; they made a note in the script that explicitly states, "The crew is unisex and all parts are interchangeable for men or women."[12][42] This freed Scott, Selway, and Goldberg to interpret the characters as they pleased, and to cast accordingly. They wanted the Nostromo's crew to resemble working astronauts in a realistic environment, a concept summarized as "truckers in space".[11][12] According to Scott, this concept was inspired partly by Star Wars, which deviated from the pristine future often depicted in science-fiction films of the time.[43]

To assist the actors in preparing for their roles, Scott wrote several pages of backstory for each character explaining their histories.[36][44] He filmed many of their rehearsals to capture spontaneity and improvisation, and tensions between some of the cast members, particularly towards the less-experienced Weaver; this translated convincingly to film as tension between the characters.[44]

Roger Ebert notes that the actors in Alien were older than was typical in thriller films at the time, which helped make the characters more convincing:

None of them were particularly young. Tom Skerritt, the captain, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, was 46, Hurt was 39 but looked older, Holm was 48, Harry Dean Stanton was 53, Yaphet Kotto was 42, and only Veronica Cartwright at 30 and Weaver at 29 were in the age range of the usual thriller cast, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. Many recent action pictures have improbably young actors cast as key roles or sidekicks, but by skewing older, Alien achieves a certain texture without even making a point of it: These are not adventurers but workers, hired by a company to return 20 million tons of ore to Earth.[45]

David McIntee, author of Beautiful Monsters: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to the Alien and Predator Films, asserts that part of the film's effectiveness in frightening viewers "comes from the fact that the audience can all identify with the characters.Everyone aboard the Nostromo is a normal, everyday, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, working Joe just like the rest of us. They just happen to live and work in the future."[46]

Filming[edit]

In a film studio, a director operates a crane-mounted camera aimed at a large <b>Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen</b> model spacecraft, raised several feet in the air by a support structure underneath. The model is lit from one side by bright studio lights and has tall spires with many pieces protruding from them.
Ridley Scott filmed model shots of the Nostromoand its attached ore refinery. He made slow passes filming at 21⁄2frames per second to give the models the appearance of motion.[24]

Alien was filmed over 14 weeks from July 5 to October 21, 1978, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. Principal photography took place at Shepperton Studios near London, while model and miniature filming was done at Bray Studios in Water Oakley, Berkshire.[41] The production schedule was short due to the film's low budget and pressure from 20th Century Fox to finish on time.[44]

A crew of over 200 craftspeople and technicians constructed the three principal sets: the surface of the alien planetoid, and the interiors of the Nostromo and the derelict spacecraft.[24] Art director Les Dilley created 1⁄24-scale miniatures of the planetoid's surface and derelict spacecraft based on Giger's designs, then made moulds and casts and scaled them up as diagrams for the wood and fiberglass forms of the sets.[11] Tons of sand, plaster, fiberglass, rock, and gravel were shipped into the studio to sculpt a desert landscape for the planetoid's surface, which the actors would walk across wearing space-suit costumes.[24] The suits themselves were thick, bulky, and lined with nylon, had no cooling systems, and initially, no venting for their exhaled carbon dioxide to escape.[47] Combined with a heat wave, these conditions nearly caused the actors to pass out; nurses had to be kept on-hand with oxygen tanks.[44][47]

For scenes showing the exterior of the Nostromo, a 58-foot (18 m) landing leg was constructed to give a sense of the ship's size. Scott was not convinced that it looked large enough, so he had his two young sons and the son of Derek Vanlint (the film's cinematographer) stand in for the regular actors, wearing smaller space suits to make the set pieces seem larger.[47][48] The same technique was used for the scene in which the crew members encounter the dead alien creature in the derelict spacecraft. The children nearly collapsed due to the heat of the suits; oxygen systems were eventually added to help the actors breathe.[44][47] Four identical cats were used to portray Jones, the crew's pet.[41] During filming, Sigourney Weaver discovered that she was allergic to the combination of cat hair and the glycerin placed on the actors' skin to make them appear sweaty. By removing the glycerin she was able to continue working with the cats.[18][44]

Alien originally was to conclude with the destruction of the Nostromo while Ripley escapes in the shuttle Narcissus. However, Scott conceived of a "fourth act" to the film in which the Alien appears on the shuttle and Ripley is forced to confront it. He pitched the idea to 20th Century Fox and negotiated an increase in the budget to film the scene over several extra days.[49] Scott had wanted the Alien to bite off Ripley's head and then make the final log entry in her voice, but the producers vetoed this idea as they believed the Alien should die at the end of the film.[49]

Post-production[edit]

Editing and postproduction work on Alien took roughly 20 weeks to complete, concluding in late-January 1979.[50] Terry Rawlings served as editor, having previously worked with Scott on editing sound for Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen Duellists.[50] Scott and Rawlings edited much of the film to have a slow pace to build suspense for the more tense and frightening moments. According to Rawlings: "I think the way we did get it right was by keeping it slow, funny enough, which is completely different from what they do today. And I think the slowness of it made the moments that you wanted people to be sort of scared.then we could go as fast as we liked because you've sucked people into a corner and then attacked them, so to speak. And I think that's how it worked."[50] The first cut of the film was over three hours long; further editing trimmed the final version to just under two hours.[50][51]

One scene that was cut from the film occurred during Ripley's final escape from the Nostromo; she encounters Dallas and Brett, who have been partially cocooned by the Alien. O'Bannon had intended the scene to indicate that Brett was becoming an alien egg, while Dallas was held nearby to be implanted by the resulting facehugger.[34] Production designer Michael Seymour later suggested that Dallas had "become sort of food for the alien creature",[48] while Ivor Powell suggested that "Dallas is found in the ship as an egg, still alive."[50] Scott remarked, "they're morphing, metamorphosing, they are changing into.being consumed, I guess, by whatever the Alien's organism is.into an egg." The scene was cut partly because it did not look realistic enough, but also because it slowed the pace of the escape sequence.[34][49] Tom Skerritt remarked that "The picture had to have that pace. Her trying to get the hell out of there, we're all rooting for her to get out of there, and for her to slow up and have a conversation with Dallas was not appropriate."[50] The footage was included with other deleted scenes as a special feature on the Laserdisc release of Alien, and a shortened version of it was reinserted into the 2003 Director's Cut, which was re-released in theaters and on DVD.[34][52]

Music[edit]

Main article: Alien (soundtrack)

Jerry Goldsmith composed the music for Alien.

The musical score for Alien was composed by Jerry Goldsmith, conducted by Lionel Newman, and Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen by the National Philharmonic Orchestra, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. Scott had originally wanted the film to be scored by Isao Tomita, but 20th Century Fox wanted a more familiar composer and Goldsmith was recommended by then-president of Fox Alan Ladd Jr.[53] Goldsmith wanted to create a sense of romanticism and lyrical mystery in the film's opening scenes, which would build throughout the film to suspense and fear.[50] Scott did not like Goldsmith's original main title piece, however, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, so Goldsmith rewrote it as "the obvious thing: weird and strange, and which everybody loved."[50][53] Another source of tension was editor Terry Rawlings' choice to use pieces of Goldsmith's music from previous films, including a piece from Freud: The Secret Passion, and to use an excerpt from Howard Hanson's Symphony No. 2 ("Romantic") for the end credits.[50][53][54][55]

Scott and Rawlings had also become attached to several of the musical cues they had used for the temporary score while editing the film, and re-edited some of Goldsmith's cues and rescored several sequences to match these cues and even left the temporary score in place in some parts of the finished film.[50] Goldsmith later remarked, "you can see that I was sort of like going at opposite ends of the pole with the filmmakers."[50] Nevertheless, Scott praised Goldsmith's score as "full of dark beauty"[53] and "seriously threatening, but beautiful."[50] It was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score, a Grammy Award for Best Soundtrack Album, and a BAFTA Award for Best Film Music.[citation needed] The score has been released as a soundtrack album in several versions with different tracks and sequences.[56]

Design[edit]

Creature effects[edit]

Further information on the creature: Alien (creature in Alien franchise)

A man covered with sweat lays on a <b>Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen</b> examination table, with a spider-like alien creature covering his face. The creature is beige in color and has four long, thin fingers on either side of its body that grasp tightly around the man's head, and its long tail is coiled around his neck.

The "facehugger" was the first creature Giger designed for the film, giving it human-like fingers and a long tail.[22][57]

The head and tail of an alien creature is emerging from the ruptured chest cavity of a dead man. The small eyeless creature is beige in color, has sharp metallic-looking teeth and a long segmented tail. A significant amount of blood covers the creature and the man's body.

The "chestburster" was shoved up through the table and a false torso by a puppeteer.[22] The scene has been Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen as one of the film's most memorable.

O'Bannon introduced Scott to the artwork of H. R. Giger; both of them felt that his painting Necronom IV was the type of representation they wanted for the film's antagonist and began asking the studio to hire him as a designer.[38][40] 20th Century Fox initially believed Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen work was too ghastly for audiences, but the Brandywine team were persistent and eventually won out.[40] According to Gordon Carroll: "The first second that Ridley saw Giger's work, he knew that the biggest single design problem, maybe the biggest problem in the film, had been solved."[38] Scott flew to Zürich to meet Giger and recruited him to work on all aspects of the Alien and its environment including the surface of the planetoid, the derelict spacecraft, and all four forms of the Alien from the egg to the adult.[38][40]

The scene of Kane inspecting the egg was shot in postproduction. A fiberglass egg was used so that actor John Hurt could shine his light on it and see movement inside, which was provided by Scott fluttering his hands inside the egg while wearing rubber gloves.[58] The top of the egg was hydraulic, and the innards were a cow's stomach and tripe.[22][58] Test shots of the eggs were filmed using hen's eggs, and this footage was used in early teaser trailers. For this reason, the image of a hen's egg was used on the poster, and has become emblematic of the franchise as a whole—as opposed to the Alien egg that appears in the finished film.[58]

The "facehugger" and its proboscis, which Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen made of a sheep's intestine, were shot out of the egg using high-pressure air hoses. The shot was reversed and slowed down in editing to prolong the effect and reveal more detail.[22][58] The facehugger itself was the first creature that H.R, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. Giger designed for the film, going through several versions in different sizes before deciding on a small creature with human-like fingers and a long tail.[22][57] Dan O'Bannon, with help from Ron Cobb, drew his own version based on Giger's design, which became the final version.[57] Cobb came up with the idea that the creature could have a powerful acid for blood, a characteristic that would carry over to the adult Alien and would make it impossible for the crew to kill it by conventional means, such as guns or explosives, since the acid would burn through the ship's hull.[28] For the scene in which the dead facehugger is examined, Scott used pieces of fish and shellfish to create its viscera.[22][58]

The design of the "chestburster" was inspired by Francis Bacon's 1944 painting Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion.[22] Giger's original design, which was refined, resembled a plucked chicken.[22] Screenwriter Dan O'Bannon credits his experiences with Crohn's disease for inspiring the chest-busting scene.[59]

For the filming of the chestburster scene, the cast members knew that the creature would be bursting out of Hurt, and had seen the chestburster puppet, but they had not been told that fake blood would also be bursting out in every direction from high-pressure pumps and squibs.[18][60] The scene was shot in one take using an artificial torso filled with blood and viscera, with Hurt's head and arms coming up from underneath the table. The chestburster was shoved up through the torso by a puppeteer who held it on a stick. When the creature burst through the chest, a stream of blood shot directly at Cartwright, shocking her enough that she fell over and went into hysterics.[18][22][24] According to Tom Skerritt, "What you saw on camera was the real response. She had no idea what the hell happened. All of a sudden this thing just came up."[22] The creature then runs off-camera, an effect accomplished by cutting a slit in the table for the puppeteer's stick to go through and passing an air hose through the puppet's tail to make it whip about.[22]

The real-life surprise of the actors gave the scene an intense sense of realism and made it one of the film's most memorable moments. During preview screenings, the crew noticed that some viewers would move towards the back of the theater so as not to be too close to the screen during the sequence.[51] The scene has frequently been called one of the most memorable moments in cinema history.[citation needed] In 2007, Empire named it as the greatest 18-rated moment in film, ranking it above the decapitation scene in The Omen (1976) and the transformation sequence in An American Werewolf in London (1981).[61]

For the scene in which Ash is revealed to be an android, a puppet was created of the character's torso and upper body, which was operated from underneath.[44] During a preview screening of the film, this scene caused an usher to faint.[51][62] In the following scene, Ash's head is placed on a table and reactivated; for portions of this scene, an animatronic head was made using a face cast of the actor, Ian Holm.[49] However, the latex of the head shrank while curing and the result was not entirely convincing.[44] For the bulk of the scene, Holm knelt under the table with his head coming up through a hole. Milk, caviar, pasta, fiber optics, and Foley's Urinary Catheters were combined to form the android's innards.[44][49]

The Alien[edit]

Giger made several conceptual paintings of Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen adult Alien before settling on the final version. He sculpted the creature's body using plasticine, incorporating pieces such as vertebrae from snakes and cooling tubes from a Rolls-Royce.[13][22] The creature's head was manufactured separately by Carlo Rambaldi, who had worked on the aliens in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.[63] Rambaldi followed Giger's designs closely, making some modifications to incorporate the moving parts that would animate the jaw Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen inner mouth.[22] A system of hinges and cables was used to operate the creature's rigid tongue, which protruded from Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen mouth and featured a second mouth at its tip with its own set of movable teeth.[22] The final head had about 900 moving parts and points of articulation.[22] Part of a human skull was used as the "face", and was hidden under the smooth, translucent cover of the head.[13] Rambaldi's original Alien jaw is now on display in the Smithsonian Institution,[49] while in April 2007, the original Alien suit was sold at auction.[64] Copious amounts of K-Y Jelly were used to simulate saliva and to give the Alien an overall slimy appearance.[22][57] The creature's vocalizations were provided by Percy Edwards, a voice artist famous for providing bird sounds for British television throughout the 1960s and 1970s, as well as the whale sounds for Orca: Killer Whale (1977).[53][65]

For most of the film's scenes, the Alien was portrayed by Bolaji Badejo. A latex costume was made to fit Badejo's slender 6-foot-10-inch (208 cm) frame by taking a full-body plaster cast.[22][24] Scott later commented that the Alien "takes on elements of the host – in this case, a man."[40] Badejo attended t'ai chi and mime classes to create convincing movements for the Alien.[13][22] For some scenes, such as when the Alien lowers itself from the ceiling to kill Brett, the creature was portrayed by stuntmen Eddie Powell and Roy Scammell[24][25]—Powell, in costume, was suspended on wires and then lowered in an unfurling motion.[22][58]

Scott chose not to show the full Alien for most of the film, keeping most of its body in shadow to create a sense of terror and heighten suspense. The audience could thus project their own fears into imagining what the rest of the creature might look like:[22] "Every movement is going to be very slow, very graceful, and the Alien will alter shape so you Grand Theft Auto IV License Key.txt crack serial keygen really know exactly what he looks like."[24] Scott said:

"I've never liked horror films before, because in the end it's always been a man in a rubber suit. Well, there's one way to deal with that. The most important thing in a film of this type is not what you see, but the effect of what you think you saw."

— Ridley Scott[24]

The Alien has been referred to as "one of the most iconic movie monsters in film history", and its biomechanical appearance and sexual overtones have been frequently noted.[66]Roger Ebert remarked that "Alien uses a tricky device to keep the alien fresh throughout the movie: It evolves the nature and appearance of the creature, so we never know quite what it looks like or what it can do.The first time we get a good look at the alien, as it bursts from the chest of poor Kane (John Hurt). It is unmistakably phallic in shape, and the critic Tim Dirks mentions its 'open, dripping vaginal mouth.'"[45]

Sets[edit]

The sets of the Nostromo's three decks were each created almost entirely in one piece, with each deck occupying a separate stage. The actors had to navigate through the hallways that connected the stages, adding to the film's sense of claustrophobia and realism.[24][44][57] The sets used large transistors and low-resolution computer screens to give the ship a "used", industrial look and make it appear as though it was constructed of "retrofitted old technology".[48] Ron Cobb created industrial-style symbols and color-coded signs for various areas and aspects of the ship.[48] The company that owns the Nostromo is not named in the film, and is referred to by the characters as "the company". However, the name and logo of the company appears on several set pieces and props such as computer monitors and beer cans as "Weylan-Yutani".[67] Cobb created the name to imply a business alliance between Britain and Japan, deriving "Weylan" from the British Leyland Motor Corporation and "Yutani" from the name of his Japanese neighbor.[68][69] The 1986 sequel, Aliens, named the company as "Weyland-Yutani",[68][70] and it has remained a central aspect Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen the film franchise.

Art Red Giant Trapcode Particular 2.1 crack serial keygen Roger Christian used scrap metal and parts to create set pieces and props to save money, a technique he employed while working on Star Wars.[48][71] For example, some of the Nostromo's corridors were created from portions of scrapped bomber aircraft, and a mirror was used to create the illusion of longer corridors in the below-deck area.[48] Special-effects supervisors Brian Johnson and Nick Allder made many of the set pieces and props function, including moving chairs, computer monitors, motion trackers, and flamethrowers.[18][24]

H. R. Giger designed and worked on all of the alien aspects of the film, which he designed to appear organic and biomechanical in contrast to the industrial look of the Nostromo and its human elements.[24][48] For the interior of the derelict spacecraft and egg chamber, he used dried bones with plaster to sculpt much of the scenery and elements.[24][48] Veronica Cartwright described Giger's sets as "so erotic.it's big vaginas and penises.the whole thing is like you're going inside of some sort of womb or whatever.it's sort of visceral".[48] The set with the deceased alien creature, which the production team nicknamed the "space jockey", proved problematic, as 20th Century Fox did not want to spend the money for such an expensive set that would only be used for one scene. Scott described the set as the cockpit or driving deck of the mysterious ship, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, and the production team was able to convince the studio that the scene was important to impress the audience and make them aware that this was not a B movie.[48][58] To save money, only one wall of the set was created, and the "space jockey" sat atop a disc that could be rotated to facilitate shots from different angles in relation to the actors.[24][58] Giger airbrushed the entire set and the "space jockey" by hand.[48][58]

The origin of the jockey creature was not explored in the film, but Scott later theorized that it might have been the ship's pilot, and that the ship might have been a weapons-carrier capable of dropping alien eggs onto a planet so that the aliens could use the local lifeforms as hosts. In early versions of the script, the eggs were to be located in a separate pyramid structure, which would be found later by the Nostromo crew and would contain statues and hieroglyphs depicting the alien reproductive cycle, contrasting the human, alien, and space-jockey cultures.[28] Cobb, Foss, and Giger each created concept artwork for these sequences, but they were eventually discarded due to budgetary concerns and the need to shorten the film.[24] Instead, the egg chamber was set inside the derelict ship and was filmed on the same set as the space-jockey scene; the entire disc piece supporting the jockey and its chair was removed and the set was redressed to create the egg chamber.[24] Light effects in the egg chamber were created by lasers borrowed from English rock band The Who. The band was testing the lasers for use in their stage show on the sound stage next door.[72]

Spaceships and planets[edit]

I resent films that are so shallow they rely entirely on their visual effects, and of course science-fiction films are notorious for this. I've always felt that there's another way to do it: a lot of effort should be expended toward rendering the environment of the spaceship, or space travel, whatever the fantastic setting of your story should be–as convincingly as possible, but always in the background. That way the story and the characters emerge and they become more real.

—Ron Cobb on his designs for Alien[24]

O'Bannon brought in artists Ron Cobb and Chris Foss, with whom he had worked on Dark Star and Dune, respectively, to work on designs for the human aspects of the film such as the spaceship and space suits.[38][68] Cobb created hundreds of preliminary sketches of the interiors and exteriors of the ship, which went through many design concepts and possible names such as Leviathan and Snark as the script was developed. The final name of the ship was derived from Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen title of Joseph Conrad's 1904 novel Nostromo, while the escape shuttle, called Narcissus in the script, was named after Conrad's 1897 novellaThe Nigger of the 'Narcissus'.[67] The production team particularly praised Cobb's ability to depict the interior settings of the ship in a realistic and believable manner. Under Scott's direction, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, the design of the Nostromo shifted towards an 800-foot-long (240 m) tug towing a refining platform 2 miles (3.2 km) long and 1.5 miles (2.4 km) wide.[24] Cobb also created some conceptual drawings of the Alien, but these were not used.[38][68]Moebius was attached to the project for a few days, as well, and his costume renderings served as the basis for the final space suits created by costume designer John Mollo.[24][68]

The spaceships and planets for the film were shot using models and miniatures. These included models of the Nostromo, its attached mineral refinery, the escape shuttle Narcissus, the alien planetoid, and the exterior and interior of the derelict spacecraft. Visual-effects supervisor Brian Johnson and supervising modelmaker Martin Bower and their team worked at Bray Studios, roughly 25 miles (40 km) from Shepperton Studios.[73][74] The designs of the Nostromo and its attachments Final Cut Pro 10 Download For Mac & Windows Crack Free Download based on combinations of Scott's storyboards and Ron Cobb's conceptual drawings.[73] The basic outlines of the models were made of wood and plastic, and most of the fine details were added from model kits of warships, tanks, and World War II bombers.

Three models of the Nostromo were made: a 12-inch (30 cm) version for medium and long shots, a 4-foot (1.2 m) version for rear shots, and a 12-foot (3.7 m), 7-short-ton (6.4 t) rig for the undocking and planetoid surface sequences.[24][74] Scott insisted on numerous changes to the models even as filming was taking place, leading to conflicts with the modeling and filming teams. The Nostromo was originally yellow, and the team filmed shots of the models for six weeks before Johnson left to work on The Empire Strikes Back. Scott then ordered it changed to gray, and the team had to begin shooting again from scratch.[73][74] He asked that more and more pieces be added to the model such that the final version (with the refinery) required a metal framework so that it could be hoisted by a forklift. He also took a hammer and chisel to sections of the refinery, knocking off many of the spires that Bower had spent weeks creating. Scott also had disagreements with miniature-effects cinematographer Dennis Ayling over how to light the models.[73]

A separate model, about 40 feet (12 m) long, was created for the Nostromo's underside from which the Narcissus would detach and from which Kane's body would be launched during the funeral scene. Bower carved Kane's burial shroud out of wood; it was launched through the hatch using a small catapult and filmed at high speed. The footage was slowed down in editing.[73][63] Only one shot was filmed using blue-screen compositing - that of the shuttle racing past the Nostromo. The other shots were simply filmed against black backdrops, with stars added by double exposure.[74] Though motion control photography technology was available at the time, the film's budget would not allow for it. The team, therefore, used a camera with wide-angle lenses mounted on a drive mechanism to make slow passes over and around the models filming at 21⁄2 frames per second,[24] giving them the appearance of motion. Scott added smoke and wind effects to enhance the illusion.[73] For the scene in which the Nostromo detaches from the refinery, a 30-foot (9.1 m) docking arm was created using pieces from model railway kits. The Nostromo was pushed away from the refinery by a forklift covered in black velvet, causing the arm to extend out from the refinery. This created the illusion that the arm was pushing the ship forward.[73][74] Shots of the ship's exterior in which characters are seen moving around inside were filmed using larger models which contained projection screens displaying pre-recorded footage.[73]

A separate model was created for the exterior of the derelict alien spacecraft. Matte paintings were used to fill in areas of the ship's interior, as well as exterior shots of the planetoid's surface.[73] The surface as seen from space during the landing sequence was created by painting a globe white, then mixing chemicals and dyes onto transparencies and projecting them onto it.[24][74] The planetoid was not named in the film, but some drafts of the script gave it the name Acheron[13] after the river which in Greek mythology is described as the "stream of woe"; it is a branch of the river Styx, and forms the border of Hell in Dante's Inferno. The 1986 sequel Aliens named the planetoid as "LV-426",[70] and both names have been used for it in subsequent expanded-universe media such as comic books and video games.

Title sequence[edit]

The title sequence was developed by R/Greenberg Associates "to instill a sense of foreboding, the letters broken into pieces, the space between them unsettling."[75] It is referenced as one of the most iconic opening sequences of all time.[76]

Release[edit]

"It was the most incredible preview I've ever been in. I mean, people were screaming and running out of the theater."[62]

—Editor Terry Rawlings describing the film's screening in Dallas.

An initial screening of Alien for 20th Century Fox representatives in St. Louis was marred by poor sound. A subsequent screening in a newer theater in Dallas went significantly better, eliciting genuine fright from the audience.[62] Two theatrical trailers were shown to the public. The first consisted of rapidly changing still images set to some of Jerry Goldsmith's electronic music from Logan's Run, with the tagline in both the trailer and on the teaser poster "A word of warning.". The second used test footage of a hen's egg set to part of Goldsmith's Alien score.[51] The film was previewed in various American cities in the spring of 1979[51] and was promoted with the tagline "In space, no one can hear you scream."[62][77]

Alien was rated "R" in the United States, "X" in the United Kingdom, and "M" in Australia.[41] In the UK, the British Windows 10 ISO All in One Build 1709 Fall Creators Updated of Film Censors almost passed the film as an "AA" (for ages 14 and over), although concerns existed over the prevalent sexual imagery. 20th Century Fox eventually relented in pushing for an AA certificate after deciding that an X rating would make it easier to sell as a horror film.[78]

Alien opened in a limited release in American theaters on May 25, 1979.[77][79] The film had no formal premiere, yet moviegoers lined up for blocks to see it at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, where a number of models, sets, and props were displayed outside to promote it during its first run.[51][62] It received a wide release in the United States on June 22.[80] Certain Jewish rabbiset fire to the model of the space jockey, believing it to be the work of the devil.[51] In the United Kingdom, Alien premiered at a gala performance at the Edinburgh Film Festival on September 1, 1979,[81][82] before starting an exclusive run at the Odeon Leicester Square in London on Thursday, September 6, 1979,[83] but it did not open widely in Britain until January 13, 1980.[51]

Box office[edit]

The film was a commercial success, opening in 90 theatres across the United States (plus 1 in Canada), setting 51 house records and grossing $3,527,881 over the 4-day Memorial Day weekend with a per-screen average of $38,767,[5] which Daily Variety suggested may have been the biggest per-screen opening in history.[84] In its first 4 weeks it grossed $16.5 million from only 148 prints before expanding to 635 screens.[5] In the UK, the film grossed $126,150 in its first 4 days at the Odeon Leicester Square, setting a house record.[85] It grossed $78.9 million in the United States and £7,886,000 in the United Kingdom during its first run.[51] Including reissues, it has grossed $81.8 million in the United States and Canada, while international box-office figures have varied from $24 million to $122.7 million. Its total worldwide gross has been listed within the range of $104.9 million[5] to $203.6 million.[6] In 1992, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, Fox noted the worldwide gross was $143 million.[86]

Despite this apparent Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen success, 20th Century Fox claimed that in the 11 months since its release, Alien had lost the studio $2 million. Seen as an example of Hollywood creative accounting used by Fox to disguise the film revenue and limit any payments to Brandywine, the claim was decried by industry accountants, and by August 1980, Fox readjusted the figure to $4 million profit, although this was similarly refuted. Eager to begin work on a sequel, Brandywine sued Fox over their profit distribution tactics, but Fox claimed that Alien was not a financial success and did not warrant a sequel. The lawsuit was settled in 1983 when Fox agreed to fund an Alien II.

Critical reception[edit]

Critical reaction to the film was initially mixed. Some critics who were not usually favorable towards science fiction, such as Barry Norman of the BBC's Film series, were positive about the film's merits.[51] Others, however, were not; reviews by Variety, Sight and Sound, Vincent Canby, and Leonard Maltin were mixed or negative.[88] (Maltin reassessed the film upon the release of the Director's Cut and gave Alien a positive review.)[89] A review by Time Out said the film was an "empty bag of tricks whose production values and expensive trickery cannot disguise imaginative poverty".[90] In their original review on Sneak Previews, critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert gave the film "two 'yes' votes." Ebert called it "one of the scariest old-fashioned space operas I can remember." Siskel agreed that it was scary but said it was basically a "haunted house film" set "in a spaceship" and was "not the greatest science fiction film ever made."[citation needed] Siskel gave the film three stars out of four in his original print review, calling it "an accomplished Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen of scary entertainment" and praising Sigourney Weaver as "an actress who should become a major star," but listed among the film's disappointments that "[f]or me, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, the final shape of the Alien was the least scary of its forms."[91]

Accolades[edit]

Further information: List of accolades received by Alien

Alien won the 1980 Academy Award for Best Visual Effects and was also nominated for Best Art Direction (for Michael Seymour, Leslie Dilley, Roger Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, and Ian Whittaker).[92][93] It won Saturn Awards for Best Science Fiction Film, Best Direction for Ridley Scott, and Best Supporting Actress for Veronica Cartwright,[17] and was also nominated in the categories of Best Actress for Sigourney Weaver, Best Make-up for Pat Hay, Best Special Effects for Brian Johnson and Nick Allder, and Best Writing for Dan O'Bannon.[citation needed] It was also nominated for British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards for Best Costume Design for John Mollo, Best Editing for Terry Rawlings, Best Supporting Actor for John Hurt, and Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Role for Sigourney Weaver.[citation needed] It also won a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation and was nominated for a British Society of Cinematographers award for Best Cinematography for Derek Vanlint, as well as a Silver Seashell award for Best Cinematography and Special Effects at the San Sebastián International Film Festival.[citation needed] Jerry Goldsmith's score received nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score, the Grammy Award for Best Soundtrack Album, and a BAFTA Award for Best Film Music.[citation needed]

Postrelease[edit]

Home video[edit]

Alien has been released in many home video formats and packages over the years. The first of these was a 17-minute Super-8 version for home projectionists.[94] It was also released on both VHS and Betamax for rental, which grossed it an additional $40,300,000 in the United States alone.[51] Several VHS releases were subsequently issued both separately and as boxed sets. LaserDisc and Videodisc versions followed, including deleted scenes and director commentary as bonus features.[94][95] A VHS box set containing Alien and its sequels Aliens and Alien 3 was released in facehugger-shaped boxes, and included some of the deleted scenes from the Laserdisc editions.[95] When Alien Resurrection premiered in theaters, another set of the first three films was released including a Making of Alien Resurrection tape. A few months later, the set was re-released with the full version of Alien Resurrection taking the place of the making-of video.[95]Alien was released on DVD in 1999, both separately and, as The Alien Legacy, packaged with Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.[96] This set, which was also released in a VHS version, included a commentary track by Ridley Scott.[94][95] The first three films of the series have also been packaged as the Alien Triple Pack.

"The traditional definition of the term 'Director's Cut' suggests the restoration of a director's original vision, free of any creative limitations. It suggests that the filmmaker has finally overcome the interference of heavy-handed studio executives, and that the film has been restored to its original, untampered form. Such is not the case with Alien: The Director's Cut, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. It's a completely different beast."[97]

—Ridley Scott

In 2003, 20th Century Fox was preparing the Alien Quadrilogy DVD box set, which would include Alien and its three sequels. In addition, the set would also include alternative versions of all four films in the form of "special editions" and "director's cuts". Fox approached Scott to digitally restore and remasterAlien, and to restore several scenes which had been cut during the editing process for inclusion in an expanded version of the film.[97] Upon viewing the expanded version, Scott felt that it was too long and chose to recut it into a more streamlined alternative version:

Upon viewing the proposed expanded version of the film, I felt that the cut was simply too long and the pacing completely thrown off, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. After all, I cut those scenes out for a reason back in 1979. However, in the interest of giving the fans a new experience with Alien, I figured there had to be an appropriate middle ground. I chose to go in and recut that proposed long version into a more streamlined and polished alternate version of the film. For marketing purposes, this version is being called "The Director's Cut."[97]

The "Director's Cut" restored roughly four minutes of deleted footage, while cutting about five minutes of other material, leaving it about a minute shorter than the theatrical cut.[51] Many of the changes were minor, such as altered sound effects, while the restored footage included the scene in which Ripley discovers the cocooned Dallas and Brett during her escape of the Nostromo. Fox released the Director's Cut in theaters on October 31, 2003.[51] The Alien Quadrilogy boxed set was released December 2, 2003, with both versions of the film included along with a new commentary track featuring many of the film's actors, writers, and production staff, as well as other special features and a documentary entitled The Beast Within: The Making of Alien. Each film was also released separately as a DVD with both versions of the film included. Scott noted that he was very pleased with the original theatrical cut of Alien, saying that "For all intents and purposes, I felt that the original cut of Alien was perfect. I still feel that way", and that the original 1979 theatrical version "remains my version of choice".[97] He has since stated that he considers both versions "director's cuts", Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, as he feels that the 1979 version was the best he could possibly have made it at the time.[97]

The Alien Quadrilogy set earned Alien a number of new awards and nominations. It won DVDX Exclusive Awards for Best Audio Commentary and Best Overall DVD, Classic Movie, and was also nominated for Best Behind-the-Scenes Program and Best Menu Design.[citation needed] It also won a Sierra Award for Best DVD, and was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best DVD Collection and Golden Satellite Awards for Best DVD Extras and Best Overall DVD.[citation needed] In 2010 both the theatrical version and Director's Cut of Alien were released on Blu-ray Disc, as a stand-alone release and as part of the Alien Anthology set.[98]

In 2014, to mark the film's 35th anniversary, a special re-release boxed set named Alien: 35th Anniversary Edition, containing the film on Blu-ray, a digital copy, a reprint of Alien: The Illustrated Story, and a series of collectible art cards containing artwork by H.R. Giger related to the film, was released.[citation needed] A soundtrack album was released, featuring selections of Goldsmith's score. Additionally, a single of the Main Theme was released in 1980,[56] and a disco single using audio excerpts from the film was released in 1979 on the UK label Bronze Records by a recording artist under the name Nostromo.[citation needed]Alien was re-released on Ultra HD Blu-ray and 4K digital download on April 23, 2019, in honor of the film's 40th anniversary.[99] The 4k Blu-ray Disc presents the film in 2160p resolution with HDR10 High-dynamic-range video. Several previously-released bonus features on the 4k Blu-ray include audio commentary from Director Ridley Scott, cast and crew, the final isolated theatrical score and composer's original isolated score by Jerry Goldsmith, and deleted and extended scenes.[100]

Cinematic analysis[edit]

Critics have analyzed Alien's sexual overtones. Following Barbara Creed's analysis of the Alien creature as a representation of the "monstrous-feminine as archaic mother",[101] Ximena Gallardo C. and C. Jason Smith compared the facehugger's attack on Kane to a male rape and the chestburster scene to a form of violent birth, noting that the Alien's phallic head and method of killing the crew members add to the sexual imagery.[102][103] Dan O'Bannon, who wrote the film's screenplay, has argued that the scene is a metaphor for the male fear of penetration, and that the "oral Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen of Kane by the facehugger functions as "payback" for the many horror films in which sexually vulnerable women are attacked by male monsters.[104] McIntee claims that "Alien is a rape movie as much as Straw Dogs (1971) or I Spit on Your Grave (1978), or The Accused (1988). On one level, it's about an intriguing alien threat. On one level it's about parasitism and disease. And on the level that was most important to the writers and director, it's about sex, and reproduction by non-consensual means. And it's about this happening to a man."[105] He notes how the film plays on men's fear and misunderstanding of pregnancy and childbirth, while also giving women a glimpse into these fears.[106]

Film analyst Lina Badley has written that the Alien's design, with strong Freudian sexual undertones, multiple phallic symbols, and overall feminine figure, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, provides an androgynous image conforming to archetypal mappings and imageries in horror films that often redraw gender lines.[107] O'Bannon described the sexual imagery as overt and intentional: "I am going to put in every image I can think of to make the men in the audience cross their legs. Homosexual oral rape, birth. The thing lays its eggs down your throat, the whole number."[108]

Some have argued the film's narrative details and visual design were inspired by those of the 1965 Italian film Planet of the Vampires(top), Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, such as a scene in which the crew discovers a ruin containing giant alien skeletons.[109]

Alien's roots in earlier works of fiction have been analyzed and acknowledged extensively by critics. The film has been said to have much in common with B movies such as The Thing from Another World (1951),[45][110]Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954),[111]It! The Terror from Beyond Space (1958),[32][66]Night of the Blood Beast (1958),[112] and Queen of Blood (1966),[113] as well as its fellow 1970s horror films Jaws (1975) and Halloween (1978).[45] Literary connections have also been suggested: Philip French of the Guardian has perceived thematic parallels with Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None (1939).[110] Many critics have also suggested that the film derives in part from A, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen. E. van Vogt's The Voyage of the Space Beagle (1950), particularly its stories "The Black Destroyer", in which a cat-like alien infiltrates the ship and hunts the crew; and "Discord in Scarlet", in which an alien implants parasitic eggs inside crew members which then hatch and eat their way out.[114] O'Bannon denies that this was a source of his inspiration for Alien's story.[27] Van Vogt in fact initiated a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox over the similarities, but Fox settled out of court.[115]

Several critics have suggested that the film was inspired by Italian filmmaker Mario Bava's cultclassicPlanet of the Vampires (1965), Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, in both narrative details and visual design.[116] Rick Sanchez of IGN has noted the "striking resemblance"[117] between the two movies, especially in a celebrated sequence in which the crew discovers a ruin containing the skeletal remains of long dead giant beings, and in the design and shots of the ship itself.[118]Cinefantastique also noted the remarkable similarities between these scenes and other minor parallels.[118] Robert Monell, on the DVD Maniacs website, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, observed that much of the conceptual design and some specific imagery in Alien "undoubtedly owes a great debt" to Bava's film.[119] Despite these similarities, O'Bannon and Scott both claimed in a 1979 interview that they had not seen Planet of the Vampires.[120]

Writer David McIntee, as well as reviewers for PopMatters and Den of Geek, have noted similarities to the Doctor Who serial The Ark in Space (1975), Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, in which an insectoid queen alien lays larvae inside humans which later eat their way out, a life cycle inspired by that of the ichneumon wasp.[27][121][122] McIntee also noted similarities between the first half of the film, particularly in early versions of the script, to H. P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness, "not in storyline, but in dread-building mystery",[123] and calls the finished film "the best Lovecraftian movie ever made, without being a Lovecraft adaptation", due to its similarities in tone and atmosphere to Lovecraft's works.[46] In 2009, O'Bannon said the film was "strongly influenced, tone-wise, by Lovecraft, and one of the Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen it proved is that you can't adapt Lovecraft effectively without an extremely strong visual style . What you need is a cinematic equivalent of Lovecraft's prose."[124] H. R. Giger has said he liked O'Bannon's initial Alien storyline "because I found it was in the vein of Lovecraft, one of my greatest sources of inspiration."[125]

Audience research[edit]

Findings from an international audience research project conducted by staff from Aberystwyth University, Northumbria University and University of East Anglia were published in 2016 by Palgrave Macmillan as Alien Audiences: Remembering and Evaluating a Classic Movie. 1,125 people were surveyed about their memories and opinions of the film in order to test some of the theories offered by academics and critics about why the film became so popular and why it has endured for so long as a masterpiece. The study discusses memories of Alien in the cinema and on home video from the point of view of everyday audiences, describing how many fans share the film with their children and the shocking impact of the "chestburster" scene, among other things.[126]

Legacy[edit]

Retrospective reception and lasting praise[edit]

In a 1980 episode of Sneak Previews discussing science fiction films of the 1950s and 1970s, the reviewers were critical of Alien. Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen Ebert reiterated Gene Siskel's earlier opinion, stating that the film was "basically just an intergalactic haunted house thriller set inside a spaceship." He described it as one of several science fiction pictures that were "real disappointments" compared to Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. However, in both episodes Ebert singled out the early scene of the Nostromo's crew exploring the alien planet for praise, calling the scene "inspired," said that it showed "real imagination" and claimed that it transcended the rest of the film.[127] Over two decades later, Ebert had revised his opinion of the film, including it on his Great Movies list, where he gave it four stars and said "Ridley Scott's 1979 movie is a great original."[128] In 1980, the film was included in Cinefantastique's list of the top films of the 1970s while failing to make the magazine's top ten. Frederick S. Clarke, the magazine's editor, wrote that Alien was "an exercise in style, refreshingly adult in approach, wickedly grim and perverse, that manages to compensate for a lack of depth in both story and characters." In 1982, John Simon of the National Review praised the cast of Alien, particularly Sigourney Weaver, and the film's visual values. Simon also wrote, "For fanciers of horror, among whose numbers I do not count myself, Alien is recommendable, provided they are free from hypocrisy and finicky stomachs".[130]

Despite initial mixed reviews, Alien has received critical acclaim over the years, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, particularly for its realism and unique environment,[66] and is cited one of the best films of 1979.[131][132] It is seen as one of the most influential science-fiction films.[133][134] It holds a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 125 reviews and an average rating of 9.11/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "A modern classic, Alien blends science fiction, horror and bleak poetry into a seamless whole."[135]Metacritic reports a weighted average score of 89 out of 100 based on 34 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[136]Halliwell's Film Guide awarded it a full four stars, describing it as "a classic of suspense and art direction".[90] Alan Jones of Radio Times awarded it five stars out of five, describing it as a "revolutionary 'haunted house in space' thrill-ride [.] stunning you with shock after shock", praising the "top-notch acting [.] and imaginative bio-mechanical production design", as well as "Ridley Scott's eye for detail and brilliant way of alternating false scares with genuine jolts, which help to create a seamless blend of gothic horror and harrowing science fiction".[137]

Critical interest in the film was re-ignited with the theatrical release of the "Director's Cut" in 2003. Roger Ebert ranked it among "the most influential of modern action pictures" and praised its pacing, atmosphere, and settings:

One of the great strengths of Alien is its pacing. It takes its time. It waits. It allows silences (the majestic opening shots are underscored by Jerry Goldsmith with scarcely audible, far-off metallic chatterings). It suggests the enormity of the crew's discovery by building up to it with small steps: The interception of a signal (is it a warning or an SOS?). The descent to the extraterrestrial surface. The bitching by Brett and Parker, who are concerned only about collecting their shares. The masterstroke of the surface murk through which the crew members move, their helmet lights hardly penetrating the soup. The shadowy outline of the alien ship. The sight of the alien pilot, frozen in his command chair. The enormity of the discovery inside the ship ("It's full of . 360 Total Security 2021 Crack Key Free Download with Torrent eggs .").[45]

David McIntee praises Alien as "possibly the definitive combination of horror thriller with science fiction trappings."[46] He notes that it is a horror film first and a science fiction film second, since science fiction normally explores issues of how humanity will develop under other circumstances. Alien, on the other hand, focuses on the plight of people being attacked by a monster: "It's set on a spaceship in Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen future, but it's about people trying not to get eaten by a drooling monstrous animal. Worse, it's about them trying not to get raped by said drooling monstrous animal."[46] Along with Halloween and Friday the 13th (1980), he describes it as a prototype for the slasher film genre: "The reason it's such a good movie, and wowed both the critics, who normally frown on the genre, and the casual cinema-goer, is that it is a distillation of everything that scares us in the movies."[46] He also describes how the film appeals to a variety of audiences: "Fans of Hitchcockian thrillers like it because it's moody and dark. Gorehounds like it for the chest-burster. Science fiction fans love the hard science fiction trappings and hardware. Men love the battle-for-survival element, and women love not being cast as the helpless victim."[138]

David Edelstein wrote, "Alien remains the key text in the 'body horror' subgenre that flowered (or, depending Star Watermark Professional 2.0.1 Features Key: your viewpoint, festered) in the seventies, and Giger's designs covered all possible avenues of anxiety. Men traveled through vulva-like openings, got forcibly impregnated, and died giving birth to rampaging gooey vaginas dentate — how's that for future shock? This was truly what David Cronenberg would call 'the new flesh,' a dissolution of the boundaries between man and machine, machine and alien, and man and alien, with a psychosexual invasiveness that has never, thank God, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, been equaled."[139]

In 2008, the American Film Institute ranked Alien as the seventh-best film in the science fiction genre as part of AFI's 10 Top 10, a CBS television special ranking the ten greatest movies in ten classic American film genres. The ranks were based on a poll of over 1,500 film artists, critics, and historians, with Alien ranking just above Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) and just below Scott's other science fiction film Blade Runner (1982).[140] The same year, Empire magazine ranked it thirty-third on its list of the five hundred greatest movies of all time, based on a poll of 10,200 readers, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, critics, and members of the film industry.[141] In 2021, Phil Pirrello of Syfy ranked it at number two in the "25 scariest sci-fi movies ever made". He described it as a "groundbreaking science fiction classic" and "a movie so influential that it's hard to think of a time before Alien".[142]

Cultural influences[edit]

"The 1979 Alien is a much more cerebral movie than its sequels, with the characters (and the audience) genuinely engaged in curiosity about this weirdest of lifeforms.Unfortunately, the films it influenced studied its thrills but not its thinking."[45]

—Film critic Roger Ebert on Alien's cinematic impact.

Alien had both an immediate and long-term impact on the science fiction and horror genres. Shortly after its debut, Dan O'Bannon was sued by another writer named Jack Hammer for allegedly plagiarising a script entitled Black Space. However, O'Bannon was able to prove that he had written his Alien script first.[143] In the wake of Alien's success, a number of other filmmakers imitated or adapted some of its elements, sometimes by using "Alien" in titles. One of the first was The Alien Dead (1979), which had its title changed at the last minute to cash in on Alien's popularity.[144]Contamination (1980) was initially going to be titled Alien 2 until 20th Century Fox's lawyers contacted writer/director Luigi Cozzi and made him change it. The film built on Alien by having many similar creatures, which originated from large, slimy eggs, bursting from characters' chests.[144] An unauthorized sequel to Alien, titled Alien 2: On Earth, was released in 1980 and included alien creatures which incubate in humans. Other science fiction films of the time that borrowed elements from Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen include Galaxy of Terror (1981), Inseminoid (1981), Forbidden World (1982), Xtro (1982), and Dead Space (1991).[144]

The "chestburster" effect was parodied in Mel Brooks's comedy Spaceballs. Near the end, in a diner, John Hurt does a cameo appearance as a customer who seems to be suffering indigestion. He turns out to have an "alien" in his gut, and moans, "Oh, no.not again!" The "alien" then does a song-and-dance, singing a line of "Hello, Ma Baby", from the classic Warner Bros. cartoon One Froggy Evening.[145]

Nintendo's long-running Metroid video game series, created in 1986, was significantly influenced by Alien, both in stylistic and thematic elements. As an homage to Alien, villains in the first Metroid installment were named Ridley and Mother Brain, after the movie's director and the ship computer, respectively.[146]

In 2002, Alien was deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" by the National Film Preservation Board of the United States,[147] and was inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress for historical preservation alongside other films of 1979 including All That Jazz, Apocalypse Now, Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen, The Black Stallion, and Manhattan.[148][149]

Eli Roth cites Alien as his primary influence, saying "I saw Alien when I was 8 years old. To me, it was like a combination of Jaws and Star Wars and that's the movie that made me want to be a director. It traumatized me. I actually threw up I was so nervous after I saw it but that's like the highest compliment you can give a horror film."[150]Ty Franck, one of the authors behind the sci-fi series The Expanse, credits Alien as one of his major inspirations.[151]

Merchandise[edit]

Alan Dean Foster wrote a novelization of the film in both adult and "junior" versions, which was adapted from the film's shooting script.[53]Heavy Metal magazine published a graphic novel adaptation of the film entitled Alien: The Illustrated Story, as well as a 1980 Aliencalendar.[53] Two behind-the-scenes books were released in 1979 to accompany the film. The Book of Alien contained many production photographs and details on the making of the film, while Giger's Alien contained Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen of H. R. Giger's concept artwork for the movie.[53] A model kit of the Alien, 12 inches high, was released by the Model Products Corporation in the United States, and by Airfix in the United Kingdom.[94]Kenner also produced a larger-scale Alien action figure, as well as a board game in which players raced to be first to reach the shuttle pod Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen Aliens roamed the Nostromo's corridors and air shafts.[94] Official Halloween costumes of the Alien were released in October 1979.[94]

School play adaptation[edit]

In 2019, students at North Bergen High School in New Jersey adapted the film into a play. The production had no budget, with props and sets developed from recycled toys and other items. Social media recognition brought Scott's attention to the play. He wrote a letter of congratulations to the students ("My hat comes off to all of you for your creativity, imagination, and determination") and recommended they consider an adaptation of his film Gladiator for their next stage production.[152] He donated to the school to put on an encore performance at which Weaver was in attendance. She got on stage before the performance to congratulate the cast and crew for their creativity and commitment.[153]

Sequels and franchise[edit]

Further information: Alien (franchise)

Sigourney Weaverbecame the star of the Alienfilms, reprising her role as Ripley Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen three sequels between 1986 and 1997. She did not appear in either of the Alien vs. Predatorcrossovers of the 2000s, but has expressed interest in doing a fifth Alienfilm.

The success of Alien led 20th Century Fox to finance three direct sequels over the next eighteen years, each by different writers and directors. Sigourney Weaver remained the only recurring actor through all four films: the story of her character Ripley's encounters with the Aliens became the thematic and narrative core of the series.[45]James Cameron's Aliens (1986) focused more on action and involved Ripley returning to the planetoid accompanied by marines to confront hordes of Aliens.[70]David Fincher's Alien 3 (1992) had nihilistic tones[46] and found her on a prison planet battling another Alien, ultimately sacrificing herself to prevent her employers from acquiring the creatures.[154]Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Alien Resurrection (1997) saw Ripley resurrected through cloning to battle more Aliens even further in the future.[155]

The success of the film series resulted in the creation of a media franchise with numerous novels, comic books, video games, toys, and other media and merchandise appearing over the years. A number of these began appearing under the Alien vs. Predatorcrossover imprint, which brought the Alien creatures together with the eponymous characters of the Predator franchise. A Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen series followed, with Alien vs. Predator in 2004, and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem in 2007.[156][157][158]

Sigourney Weaver has expressed interest in reuniting with Ridley Scott to revive her character for another Alien film. In the 2003 commentary track for the Alien DVD included in the Alien Quadrilogy set, she and Scott both speculated on the possibility, with Weaver stating: "There is an appetite for a fifth one, which is something I never expected.it's really hard to come up with a fifth story that's new and fresh.but I have wanted to go back into space.I think outer space adventure is a good thing for us right now, 'cause Earth is so grim.so we've been talking about it, but very generally." Scott remarked that, if the series were to continue, the most logical course would be to explore the origins of the space jockey and the Aliens.[159] Weaver supported this idea, saying "I think it would be great to go back, because I'm asked that question so many times: 'Where did the Alien come from?' People really want to know in a very visceral way."David Giler said that he, Walter Hill, and Gordon Carroll, the producers of the first four films in the series, would not be willing to produce another unless it was about the Aliens' homeworld and Weaver was on board (despite the fact that they were among the producers of Alien vs. Predator films). Weaver indicated that she would only return to the franchise if either Scott or James Cameron were to direct.[160] Cameron had been working on a story for a fifth Alien film which would explore the origins of the creatures, but ceased work on it when he learned that Fox was pursuing Alien vs. Predator, which he felt would "kill the validity of the franchise".[161][162]

In July 2009, 20th Century Fox announced that Jon Spaihts had been hired to write a prequel to Alien, with Scott attached to direct.[163] The script was subsequently re-worked by Scott and Damon Lindelof. Titled Prometheus, it went into production in May 2011, and was released the following year. Scott said in a statement: "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."[164]

Variety reported on February 18, 2015, that a new Alien film would be developed by Quite A Box of Tricks v1.8-SHOCK crack serial keygen Blomkamp.[165] On February 25, it was confirmed that Sigourney Weaver would have a role in the film,[citation needed] the intent being to produce a direct sequel to Aliens, ignoring the events of later films, featuring the characters of Hicks and Newt.[166] Blomkamp's sequel was ultimately shelved by Fox in favor of Alien: Covenant, a continuation of Scott's prequel, Prometheus.[167]

Several computer gamesbased on the film were released, but not until several years after its theatrical run.[94]
