Though they look cool, I’m not completely sold on Neill Blomkamp’s seemingly fan pandering Alien sequel just yet. This fan art by concept artist Marek Okon is a bit more exciting to me, because it’s promising a new idea that hasn’t yet been explored in the Alien universe. I can easily see this as an interesting film, not one where the Aliens are made heroes but somehow weaponized against their will, before ultimately revolting. Sure, the idea isn’t anything new (hey Jurassic World), but who knows, with the right amount of push, it could lead to something new.

See more work from Okon at his website, and visit ArtStation for his thoughts on this piece.
