Poetic Alien

Alien: Paradise Lost

You can forget about Prometheus 2 right here and now. Just walk away.

But don’t walk too far as what we all assumed would be the sequel title for Prometheus (2012) is now being called Alien: Paradise Lost (release date none of your beeswax). This was revealed by director Ridley Scott, who is crafting the sequel as we e-speak.

To all you literary types: The title is an intentional reference to Paradise Lost, the John Milton classic. (Milton, a 16th century poet, probably wore shirts with poofy sleeves and drank wine out of a bucket.)

Paradise Lost

So what is the connection to the mammoth master work and the Alien franchise? Pretty clear to me that the new alien creatures will recite poems with their outer mouth while they punch a hole in your face with their inner extend-o mouth.

Sometimes I’m embarrassed by my smartness.
