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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
