And the Beating Goes On: Dinosaurs Vs Aliens Continues the Tradition Of Kicking Alien Ass. We Think.
Cowboys vs. Aliens, Ninja’s Vs. Aliens, now Dinosaurs vs. Aliens. I hear that Cinderella Vs. Aliens is also in the works, but Disney has reservations about licensing. I’m actually wondering if there is anything these damn stubborn aliens won’t fight! At this point, they never win, ever. It’s always humans for teh win!!
They can be outnumbered and out weaponed and just pwned period. However the human element (in whatever form) always pulls some absurd skill out of their asses and gives em hell. Yeehaww, congrats, and that bow thing that the karate people do..actually ninjas would be more likely to disappear mysteriously. Anyways.
This film, titled Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens is set in pre-historic Earth, and is based around the idea that aliens attack, and dinosaurs are the only hope of saving life on the then young planet. The battle is actually in a “secret” time period. Perhaps the outcome will be a draw between the two that causes the explosion that kills them both, explaining why the dinosaurs disappeared. That would solve a lot. Load of my mind I’ll tell you what. However, I will give this film the benefit of the doubt, as it is directed and partially written by Barry Sonnenfeld who was pretty successful with the miniseries We3. And with a film that will have aliens and dinosaurs fighting, anything can happen
A quote from Sonnenfeld tells Deadline:
Growing up, my fascination was all things dinosaur, and as an adult, I’ve had some success making films about aliens, so this is a dream come true.”
With Sonnenfeld’s passion, and the inclusion of Grant Morrison and the whole gang at Liquid Comics, this film has a fighting chance. And so do the Dinosaurs. Go reptiles! We know you’ll win!!
