Believe it or not, it's already been two whole years since Ridley Scott's Prometheus graced our screens and...produced one of the most venomously divisive reactions to any blockbuster in recent memory. Even ignoring that, its box office gross was a solid $403 million, ensuring Fox were eager to press on with a follow-up, tentatively titled Paradise, which would presumably see sole survivor Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) carrying android David's (Michael Fassbender) head with her to the Engineer homeworld in order to find out why they wanted to wipe out humanity. Though we can't deny that there's at least some interesting potential there, we're still waiting on tenterhooks for a fifth Alien film, something both James Cameron and Ridley Scott expressed an interest in pursuing last decade (with Cameron writing and Scott directing), though Cameron has changed his mind since the AvP movies happened, and Scott appears to have completely cooled on the idea now that he's working on his kinda-but-not-really-prequel series. Though there are plenty of great arguments both for and against, we've come up with 10 reasons why we'd rather see a Alien 5 and have Prometheus 2 scrapped. Do you agree, or would you rather see Scott expand the Alien world away from Ripley and the Xenomorphs, as is dead certain to happen anyway? Let us know in the comments!
