According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Alien installation is one of 25 new upcoming rides and attractions slated for a 2016 launch, all based on the studio's movie franchises like Ice Age and Night at the Museum (with more head-scratching additions like Life of Pi). The attractions will be part of Malaysia's Genting Outdoor Theme Park, which is also getting an upgrade this fall to the tune of $125 million.
 
According to the announcement, an animatronic parade featuring all the Fox characters is also being planned... but the idea of Alien's Xenomorph and Sid the Sloth from Ice Age strolling down the street together is just too bizarre to wrap our heads around on a Monday.
