This is pretty exciting news if you’re a fan of the Alien movie franchise as film director Neill Blomkamp, (District 9, Elysium, Chappie), has been given the go-ahead to bring his vision of an Alien movie to the big screen.

The director recently uploaded various pieces of concept art for a secret Alien project he was working on for Fox. Unfortunately the project was cancelled but following the amount of positive attention the art received across the Internet a real desire by fans to see this movie started to emerge. Now it seems Blomkamp has signed a new deal with Fox to bring his own installment of the Alien franchise to the big screen with the director announcing on Instagram the exciting news.

Details are sketchy right now but what is certain is that this Alien sequel will have not attachment to Ridley Scott’s current Prometheus 2 project except that the film’s events will take place directly after. There has also been no confirmation that Sigourney Weaver will reprise her role as Ripley or that Michael Biehn will return as Corporal Dwayne Hicks both of whom were featured in Blomkamp’s concept art for the movie.

No word on a screenwriter or scheduled release date either but its early days and more news will surely follow regarding this sequel soon.

Probably The Best Simpsons Intro Yet.

The video above was lovingly made by Paul Robertson, the man behind the Scott Pilgrim video game, and fellow game developer Ivan Dixon which features the full Simpsons introduction but converted to pastel pixel art.

As you can see this fan made video is pretty much the best intro The Simpsons has had yet.

Bill Gates Is Funding A Machine Which Turns Sewage Into Drinking Water.

Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates has not resigned himself to gardening leave since his retirement, instead he’s been looking to invest in some amazing and potentially life changing projects.

One such venture is the Janicki Omniprocessor, the brainchild of creator Peter Janicki, a low-cost waste treatment plant funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which turns sewage into clean drinking water and electricity.

This exciting new project could have massive implications for world sanitation not to mention a much needed increase in the quality of life for more impoverished countries.

Although the game looks glorious and the world for you to explore dense and grand in scale, the best bit of this demo video is the entirely scripted interactions between Zelda lead producer Eiji Aonuma and original Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto.
