For many of us our love of all things nerdy started with a handful of movies… one of them was without a doubt Ridley Scott’s Alien. It scared us, thrilled us and opened up a universe of possiblility. No question was as vital in that universe at just what was the space jockey? The massive alien that piloted the ship that carried the facehuggers.. we hoped we’d have it answered in Aliens, but James Cameron went a totally different direction with that, and as the movies went on the jockey was forgotten.
Until now. 33 years later, director Ridley Scott goes back to the start. The story of the xenomorph will be incidental here… Scott has a much, much bigger story to tell… and we can’t wait.
