THE MYSTERY BEHIND ALIEN 3’S MISLEADING TEASER TRAILER


Alien 3 was originally supposed to take place on Earth, but after the box office failure of Predator 2, the studio decided to fire screenwriter David Twohy (creator of Riddick) and replace him by Vincent Ward (What Dreams May Come). Originally, Ripley wasn’t supposed to be in the sequel, due to a creative disagreement with the studio.

Some say the original storyline became the Aliens: Outbreak comics.

BIGGEST BOX OFFICE BOMBS: #15 Battlefield Earth (2000)

The Damage: Battlefield Earth’s budget isn’t exactly clear, but some people claim that they lost over 61 million. Of course, Travolta’s career also took a serious beating.
The Reason: Have you seen it? It’s probably one of the worst films of the last 20 years! It’s also considered as propaganda for the Church of Scientology.

BIGGEST BOX OFFICE BOMBS: #17 Treasure Planet (2002)
The Damage: For Disney’s movie analysts, it confirmed that movie audiences were no longer interested in 2d animation. It only grossed 38 million in North America, but it had way better results overseas.
The Reason: The movie opened against Harry Potter 2. It was doomed. It had good reviews though…

BIGGEST BOX OFFICE BOMBS: #18 Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever (2002)
The Damage: A loss of 51 million and A LOT of bad reviews. Wych Kaosayananda never directed an american movie after that…
The Reason: Why would you give 70 million to the son of a Thai diplomat, who only directed one movie prior to this one, and expect a good turnout?

BIGGEST BOX OFFICE BOMBS: #20 Red Planet (2000)
The Damage: It only grossed 33 million worldwide on a 80 million dollar budget and opened at number 5 on the box office. It also seriously damaged Val Kilmer’s career.
The Reason: The movie itself was terrible (imagine 2001 mixed with Armageddon), but it was also fighting against Charlie’s Angels, Little Nicky and Meet the Parents.

Screenwriting My Webseries #2: Dealing With Competition

Two weeks ago, I discovered that an upcoming web series here in Quebec had a similar subject to the one I’m currently writing. Now, that’s incredibly frustrating because I only have three choices:

  1. Abandon the project.
  2. Change it so that people don’t really compare them.
  3. Keep writing anyway and never watch the other one. Que sera sera…

What sucks even more is that I have 0 budget and they are backed by Power Corporation (huge media corporation).
