Why Aren't Aliens Prettier?
The earlier trailer didn't show but a blurred glimpse of the alien, but this one gives an extended look. He's cute. But really: That's the thing that bugs me most about sci-fi's vision of aliens. They're supposedly higher life forms, perhaps more evolved than we are. Wouldn't you think they'd be ever more attractive than us, and not disgusting big-headed creatures? Wouldn't you imagine in a real alien world, Ryan Reynolds and Christina Hendricks would be the unattractive people? That's why we hate aliens in films. They're ugly. It's just alieniophobia. We really have to get over that as a planet. Obama: Look into it.
Other than that, it looks like as solid a sci-fi film as we're going to see this year post-Star Trek.
