Ok, I was going to post a question to anyone else who had seen the film, but I can't get the frakking spoiler tags to work...so I guess that idea's tits up!

Did you click on the little (s) in 'go advanced' then insert text? The spoiler tags were working fine for me.

Yeah, I click on the little "s". A prompt comes up, and I am guessing that that is where you type in what you want to have hidden....and when I preview it, I get nothing...as if it never existed.

Did you try going straight to submit once you typed? I don't think I previewed, I just went straight to post.

Nope...it's not working Kevin. Yeah, I went straight to submit, and still nothing.

I could swing about on that yeah. I think it could be argued they could have done that, but I think commercially they didn't want to lose the association.

'sallright, Kevin. I sent you a PM with my question that I would've put in spoiler tags here.

As for the movie itself, I think there is a unique opportunity here. I mean, here is a really cool universe of sci-fi to deal in stories....and they don't necessarily have to be about ALIEN or ALIENS....there's all sorts of possibilities that could be expanded upon. More of the Colonial Marines' function in the ALIEN universe. How do Private Military Corporations work? What about the ferocious corporate intrigue and (likely) warfare in this dystopian universe? I'm sure that Weyland has made MANY enemies in the corporate world.

Perhaps piracy on the high stars?

This was something that the "ALIENS ADVENTURE GAME" (basically, a short lived, published, paper and dice role-playing game set in the ALIENS universe) encouraged. Unfortunately, you had to be an Einstein, a Hawking, or a Rain Man to get into the heavy math involved in resolving dice conventions. LOL!

In the UK the film trailered with an ad for a new game coming out in 2013 called 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' but don't know if it was shown at US screenings.

I could be wrong but I seem to think it was once rumoured (or maybe this was a fan thing) that Blade Runner and Alien could concievably be set in the same universe because of the backdrop of their stories of dystopian darkness, giant Corporations like Weyland-Yutani and Tyrell etc and the look and feel of the films.
