Yes, it’s true. Disney, who will probably own everything one day, have purchased “most” of 20th Century Fox. This not only means that characters like the X-Men and The Fantastic Four [and what’s the betting they’ll have another go at the latter now?] will now co-exist under the same roof as Marvel’s lot, but also that the Alien and Predator franchises are now under the ownership of the House of the Mouse.

What does this mean? Rumours already surfacing that Disney may not continue Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel series, and judging by the mediocre quality of the first two instalments, I’d argue that’s not really a bad thing. On the other hand the Shane Black Predator is still definitely being made. I would imagine that Disney, who like to milk everything, will have another go at Alien and not long after that go down the Alien Vs Predator route – and perhaps it’ll be done well this time.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
