Cinematic Doppelganger

When I first saw the poster for openly gay director Roland Emmerich's new film, 10,000 BC, starring the hunky and often shirtless Steven Strait (read our movie preview here), I was struck by the similarity with that unforgettable scene in Alien where the Queen terrorizes Ripley (played by actress Sigourney Weaver). Is this poster an homage? Or lazy Hollywood movie marketing thinking that if it worked once, why not try it again?

What do you guys think? Homage? Or just plain old marketing re-hash?

Check out the trailer:
