Ridley Scott: Aliens Will Probably Destroy Us

Profile Status

Alien creator Ridley Scott says he’s convinced that there are aliens out there, and one day they could come for us.

The veteran director said he believed in higher beings as he prepared to release the sixth episode of the sci-fi horror series, Alien Covenant, next month.

I believe in superior beings, I think it is certainly likely, an expert I was talking to at NASA said to me, have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous.

The experts have now put a number on it having assessed what is out there, they say that there are between 100 and 200 entities that could be having a similar evolution to us right now.

So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it, he joked.

Ridley Scott & Engineer

Because they are a lot smarter than we are, and if you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds.

Alien Covenant, the second of the prequel films, is set in 2104 on board a spaceship carrying 2,000 cryogenically frozen colonists to a distant planet, when they chance upon an uncharted paradise.

Alien Covenant has a religious subtext, the director insisted.

He said he was agnostic, but this did not stop him making a film about Moses, Exodus: Gods and Kings, in 2014.

Either religion is the greatest trick played on mankind, or it is not, and that poses some great questions, and this film is a great context for those, he said.


The film sees Irish actor Michael Fassbender return to his role as the cerebral android David which he played in the last prequel Prometheus in 2012.

But this time with a twist, Scott uses him to pose questions about the nature of humans.

There is an artist in there somewhere, Fassbender said in an earlier interview, there’s definitely an ego in there… So again these are very human things.

We all want to leave something behind after we go, there’s a legacy of some sort that we’ve left behind, he added.

Scott, who was knighted in 2003, is about to make a film about the Battle of Britain during World War II, when the Royal Air Force fought off the German Luftwaffe.

Alien Covenant opens across the world from May 10.

    Because you make a movie about aliens doesnt make you an expert on aliens. In fact, who can honestly say they are an expert on aliens, since we dont have any on hand at the moment.

    The only reason the aliens are out there is probably to make sure we cannot develop enough technology to reach them, after all who would want our warlike races to find their peaceful planets? If we can’t all live together why are we trying to reach other civilisations? As for the comment that they will probably destroy us, to reach us they must have greater technology than we have and so could have destroyed us long ago. Of course if we go too far with trying to destroy this planet then yes they may destroy us to prevent the repercussions this would have on the Solar system and their planets.
