The movie Alien: Covenant released some week ago and the Blade Runner sequel due out this fall, both have Ridley Scott involved.

 

There is talk in old interviews about a connection between these two universes, and also possible references and easter eggs in Ridley Scott directed and produced movies.

 

Could these movies be connected? What is your thoughts about a potential Alien and Blade Runner crossover? The first Blade Runner, which was directed by Ridley Scott, takes place in a futuristic and dystopian world in Los Angeles in 2019, while Alien takes places in space and other planets. I haven't really seen much from Alien 3 or Alien 4.

 

Have guys seen the trailer for Blade Runner 2049?

I would be quite annoyed if they were connected.  These two films were originally created as independent worlds by completely different writers who wrote in completely different styles.  They're not even the same genera.  Scott getting up and saying these two stories have always been interconnected is like George Lucas claiming he originally wrote Darth Vader as a sand-hating sociopath.  He could connect them now out of sheer desperation to intrigue fans, but I certainly hope Scott doesn't throw these two universes together just because he can.

Did you guys see the latest Alien movie? I have seen it but since it's such a recent film hide the spoilers. There are some paralells scenes with the original Blade Runner.

Uh, no way can these two different sci-fi movies be connected in any way whatsoever. It wouldn't make sense even with a crossover.

I also found out that the recent Death Race movie trilogy had one possible connection with the Alien series..... Weyland Corporation. No one really knows for sure that Death Race was the precursor to the Alien series, and I also doubt Weyland is in Blade Runner.
