However, this creature was man-made, dreamt up in industrial nightmare by artist H.R. Giger. Over the course of the main four films in the series, Giger and fellow designers tweaked and modified the Xenomorph, evolving the creature little-by-little. This infographic shows you the changes made in each film, from its original appearance in 1979 through Alien: Resurrection in 1997.

Summer of 2016 is bringing us a reboot of the popular Ghostbusters franchise, marking a 27-year gap between films. Since Ghostbusters became a cultural phenomenon in the 80s, talks of a third movie had been in the works shortly after the release of Ghostbusters II in the 90s. Dan Aykroyd, the driving force behind the franchise, initially pitched a third installment, but the studio had turned it down due to it's outrageous $150 million budget. For perspective, the 2016 release Ghostbusters has reported to have a budget of $154 million, so the budget for Aykroyd's movie adjusted for inflation would be around $275 million today! Throughout most of the past decade, Ghostbusters III had been in various forms of development with scripts being drafted and Aykroyd continually providing updates on the progress. However, the movie was ultimately scrapped in favor of the upcoming...

Krampus reads mean tweets

 

Long before Ebenezer Scrooge was the name most associated with being a Christmas grouch (we're talking pre-Christian, pagan era long), Krampus was the terror around town.
