Neill Blomkamp reveales ‘Alien 5’ pulse rifle. Get hyped.

We all knew there would be pulse rifles. Obviously. Now with added RIS

Neill Blomkamp continues to tease Alien 5, while waiting for Ridley Scott to put out Prometheus: Oh Boy Oh God so he can really begin working on it. The latest tease? A glorious goddamn pulse rifle.


Blomkamp shared the picture on Instagram and as you can see for yourself, it’s fairly close to what we saw in the original film. There are changes for sure, like the scope on the top and a few cosmetic differences, but it’s close enough. It’s enough to send a wave of warm, gooey, caramel-flavored nostalgia oozing into your brain. Blomkamp is betting on you looking at this thing and remembering how you wore out that copy of Aliens on VHS back in day. Or just spun the DVD a bunch. Or accessed that digital file last year. You know how old you are. Pick one.
