All over the world, kids want to be like their favorite superheroes. With all of their cool powers, and nifty outfits, it's hard to understand why they wouldn't want to be.

Aliens sequel visualized by director of District 9, Elysium [UPDATE]

We don't really know what to believe when it comes to this proposed sequel to Aliens.

Blomkamp previously directed Elysium and District 9 - his next film is Chappie.

HR Giger dead at 74: A legacy of Aliens and bizarre Batmobiles

Swiss surrealist artist H.R. Giger has died at the age of 74, best known for having designed the iconic Xenomorph star of the Alien movies, for which he won an Oscar. Giger's style, a blending of biological parts with mechanical elements, was dubbed "biomechanical", and became a recurring and challenging theme throughout his life. However, while he may be most memorable for designing the creature that terrorized Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Ripley, Giger's CV has many unusual twists to it.

Alien: Isolation game places Ripley’s daughter alone in space

There's a video game being developed right this minute by Sega with a main character that, if you've never seen the Director's Cut of "Aliens", you might never have known existed. This character is the daughter of Ellen Ripley, a character that died (or so this one tiny scene suggests) while Ripley was floating home from her original Alien mission - not all that far from Prometheus. Here in a new game with a working title of Alien: Isolation, we're to take to a sparse universe not unlike that original film, doing so behind the eyes of the younger warrior.

Oldest primate fossil found: how these bones could be “evolutionary”

The creature newly discovered and named Archicebus achilles has become the latest world's oldest primate fossil and may be shedding light on our evolutionary roots soon. In a paper published in Nature, the international weekly journal of science, researchers have made it clear that this find may help fill gaps in the fossil record regarding the earliest phases of primate evolution.

Ender’s Game trailer reveals child genius training for future alien war

Ender’s Game trailer reveals child genius training for future alien war

It's finally time to get a good look at the film adaptation of the science fiction novel classic Ender's Game with the first official full-length trailer for the movie. This trailer is just under two minutes long and has Harrison Ford speaking in what might be the least intense declaration of intent in the history of on-film representations of the military, rivaled only by his admittedly unenthusiastic voice-over for the theater version of Blade Runner. That said, the visuals appear to be bringing a fully prepared vision from director Gavin Hood and producer Bob Orci.
