Ridley Scott’s reaction to Fede Álvarez's forthcoming Alien: Romulus movie has been revealed, and it bodes well for the next installment in the franchise. The film series initially started off in 1979 with Scott's classic Alien, which follows a crew in deep space being hunted by the Xenomorph that has infiltrated their ship. After the first movie, the franchise went on to produce three other sequels that were directed by other talented directors and several other spinoffs, most notably the Alien vs. Predator series. In 2012, Scott directed two prequel films for the franchise, and in March 2022, it was announced that Álvarez would be directing a new standalone Alien movie that’s set to hit theaters soon.
