The Sheffield Comic Con is held on August 15-16, 2015. So it looks like filming for the new Alien movie will start this year. Very little has been said about what the story will be about. Neil Blomkamp has teased some concept art he created which paints a picture that we could be mostly on Earth at Weylend-Yutani's headquarters.
