New Alien: Covenant Set Photos Reveal Extraterrestrial Massacre!

New Alien: Covenant set photos reveal extraterrestrial massacre! The Daily Mail website has just uploaded a number of pictures taken at a quarry in Sydney. They show what appears to be the aftermath of a massacre. There appears to be a mix of scorched, as if petrified, humanoids (possibly Engineers themselves?) and aliens, not the capital A variety, locked in their death throes.

New Alien: Covenant set photos reveal extraterrestrial massacre!

“These are the incredible photos taken from the set of upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Alien: Covenant, which is being filmed at an undisclosed location in Sydney, Australia.

The pictures were snapped at a quarry in the New South Wales capital on Thursday and show dramatic scenes of scorched human bodies twisted in despair and some being attacked by extra-terrestrial beings, similar to those from the Alien film series.

Directed by Oscar-nominated Sir Ridley Scott, the long-awaited sequel to 2012’s Prometheus appeared to be coming along nicely Down Under as production staff were shown against the backdrop of a grand, otherworldly set piece featuring huge blocks of charred stone and mysterious hieroglyphs.

One heart-stopping image shows around two dozen ashen human forms which are eerily frozen in moments of panic and horror as they desperately clamber up a set of steps.

In another shot taken from a greater distance, there is a more complete view of the set which features three tall stone slabs which obscure the greenery and car park behind. 

Against the industrial background of the quarry, the set of Alien: Covenant (previously known as Prometheus 2) also features some remarkable aged stone edifices which are engraved with hieroglyph-like writing.

Reflecting a haunting dystopia or end-of-civilisation scenario, several huge monuments appear toppled and strewn across the dry landscape and a tremendously large stone structure of a man’s face is left cracked and half-decapitated.

Juxtaposed next to the modern film machinery – including a large red and white crane, barricade tape and several work vehicles – the unfamiliar set and perfectly still human forms look disturbing and out-of-place.

Elsewhere, a series of huge, tree-like stumps were shown growing out of a barren rocky landscape – and the sheer scope of the design was highlighted by a solitary crew member.”

Several pictures reveal a connection to the Engineer culture, showing the broken remnants of an Engineer monument (as seen in Prometheus and previously pictured at Fox’s Syndey Studios) and Engineer hieroglyphs:

Is this Paradise or are we seeing another world that the Engineers once shepherded over? Perhaps this is the aftermath of an Engineer experiment gone wrong? What is your take on these latest pictures?

    'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep' may not be a long book - Dick never wrote 'big' books, they just embrace big ideas; and many of them at once - but it's packed to the brim with content.  So much content that 'Blade Runner' is really just the bare bones synopsis of the book.  While I love 'Blade Runner', I'm hoping one day someone will make a truer version of 'DADoES' with all of its ideas in place.

    Scott was also Executive Producer on Amazon's 'The Man in the High Castle'.  It looks the piece, too. 

    Both of these books by Dick cover the main themes that he revisited many, many times in over 30 novels and dozens of short stories:  What is the nature of reality?  ...and what does it mean to be Human? 

    Unfortunately, most of Dick's work gets into Hollywood's clutches turns into drivel.  'Total Recall', for example shoves the main reality into the back seat in favor of being yet another action vehicle for Schwarzenegger.  I'm not sure if it's O'bannon's script, but 'We Can Remember it for you Wholesale' is one trippy short story. 

    Ash's revelation as an android is very Phil Dickian.  Interestingly, that was one element that the producers made to the 'ALIEN' script.  The film is soooo much better for it.  It's addition gives the movie some much needed depth and richness it desperately needs at that point in the film to drive the film to its endgame scenes.  'ALIEN' would be a much more vacant experience without its inclusion as it tows a whole freight train of implications regarding WY.   I was actually surprised that it wasn't O'Bannon's idea.  He'd obviously read a lot of Dick's work - its seemed natural to be his idea.

    'The Man in the High Castle' wins on the television front but the closest I have seen any movie genuinely get to a Dick book is 'A Scanner Darkly'.  Oh, man... that is one menacing and trippy movie.

    Winde, a few years ago, DADoES was adapted into a graphic novel.  By that I mean it wasn't the same old Bladreunner story, but actually the original novel adapted to the Graphic novel format.  Perhaps there is hope for a film in the future, but it would have big shoes to fill.

    I was speaking about ideas and theories regarding God, existance, universe and creation. I said that the whole universe is an "illusion" and that the God is in fact an unlimited source of informations (non material and not created "things").
    Quote
    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word (logos) was God. ~John 1:1
    We have Universe and all the planets (objects) inside it, and lifeforms on those planets, but how can number 1 which represent all this, be produced from nothing (from ZERO)? Well I mentioned this ancient Greek cosmology idea which tells us that "Nothing comes from nothing" (nihil fit ex nihilo), and its easy to assume that  all we see and perceive is a simple illusion or better projection of non material pieces or bits of informations stored within higly densed objects (singularity/ black/white holes). Well there is a rather shocking theory which now begins to evolve into something really serious, and that theory shows that all what I said might be "true". That theory is widely accepted now and its called Holographic (theory) principle.
    Quote
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holographic_principle

    The "holographic principle” asserts that a mathematical description of the universe actually requires one fewer dimension than it seems. What we perceive as three dimensional may just be the image of two dimensional processes on a huge cosmic horizon (like a horizon of a black hole). And if we introduce black holes into this story then its easy to assume that we are in fact living inside the black hole which horizon store all the informations that produce this 3D space/time hologram. Big bang could have been an imploded (grand) black hole which singularity/ or horizon possessed unlimited information for creation of endless universes and projections. All that could have happened inside other black hole... I will also mention famous  theoretical physicist Nikodem Popławski whose theory of black holes states that every black hole is a doorway to another universe and that the Universe was formed within a black hole which itself exists in a larger universe.
    Quote
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikodem_Pop%C5%82awski
    Remember that word (logos) or bit of information is eternal and indestructible (thats the law of physics) so every projection and complete informations about those projections are eternal and they could be reasembeled again in some other universe withing the master one, and master one is in fact grand black/white hole. I look at this like everything is a grand server, constantly expanding and within master server there are hundreds of other servers (black holes) formed within the master and the next sub level server etc. All of those servers expand because there are unlimited quantities of informations loaded into them. Interesting thing. I wanted to share this with you no matter its not related to Alien whatsoever.

    Okay, I tried to keep an open mind about the possible settings we were going to get in the PROMETHEUS follow-up, and rather than anything 'Giger-esque', we got an early look at some lush, non-ominous 'New Zealand' backdrops as the likely setting for the 'Engineers' actual homeworld of 'Paradise' (or whatever they themselves call it).

    Which is fine, but I'm certainly pleased to see these atmospheric 'dead body' pics now.  It's almost like a hellish scene out of a Hieronymus Bosch painting, and I love the raw, bright lighting we currently see.  I hope Ridley keeps the reveal of these bodies in stark lighting like this, rather than filming them in some 'stylised' colorscheme (or unnatural 'color grading', shudder), as I think coming across these distorted, unfortunate figures in the bright light looks very ominous indeed, with the shadows they currently cast in these shots.

    Look at the faces of the more muscular husks. Those are Engineers. See how they all have that distinct nose?? Also, compare this image to the fossilized pilot suits scratching at one of the doors in the installation on LV-223. You know, the ones Fifield said reminded him of a holocaust painting?

    Too small to be Engineers IMO, but certainly the image looks like a holocaust

    Plus, it is me or there are chains of black goo in this humanoid?

    Whoa...

    I've read somewhere recently that there is this idea that the fundamental building block of our reality is the "bit".  It is not a unit of matter as we perceive it, but a unit of "information".  You are able to touch things and they appear real, because you are inside this information model.  Much like when you are in a video gamy you can reach out and touch the things around you "in-game" even though they are in fact not real.  They are only information or an idea. We are an idea by extension. NOT ONLY WE, BUT EVERYTHING!

    In some ways, this is a comforting thought.  According to the bible, in the beginning, there was the word.  The word is an idea...


    Yes. I heard about those theories... I find them very interesting :)

    Man, these are just a metaphorical and symbolical references... Xeno is a metaphor of  creation made by those who thought that they are Gods (Satan thougt that he is better than God). Creations of those who want to top Gods creation will become a destroyers of their creators... Who made the Xenomorph? Probably those who wanted to top ultimate creator (fallen angels - just a reference), but you cant top that entity. Humans created David, but the paradox of that creation is that David could become superior to Humans... thats the trick with creation... to create doesnt mean you are God!!! But the nice question will remain, who is the ultimate creator? Life is born from death, death from life... where is God? God must be all that at the same time, and none of those things. Who is God? What is God? All things at the same time and none of them. "He" is not created, but "he" "created"... Knowledge/ IS GOD (logos)... Its not created but it "created all there is"... its not material, but can be "materialised"...it can be nothing, and everything at the same time. What is existance? Materialisation (projection) of non existance, materialisation of knowledge (all things have their mathematical/physical/chemical properties which are in their essence knowledge of something, and therefore non material things). Life and material things (a materialisation of existance/of knowledge) came from death/void/chaos (dematerialised existence----knowledge... its non existent and existent at the sam time), and death came from life. God is everything and nothing, knowledge is everything and nothing (a true/false illusion). But how can something non material become material? How can you make space, planets, Humans without elements such as Oxygen, Hydrogen, Carbon,...?  How can you have number 1 from zero (0); you can have 0 from 1 (when you introduce another number 1), but first option is not imaginable to us...? Imaginable... What if 0 and 1 are the same - what if they are both same becuse they represent the same thing - NOTHING AT ALL... (nihil fit ex nihilo)... "Out of nothing, nothing [be]comes." There is nothing... So duality of death and life is not at all "duality" but modality of the same thing. Good and bad are duality of the same thing (not duality at all)... Only sentient "creatures" percive things in a different way, they see some difference (because they observe only visible,sensible and measurable thing which are in fact not visible, sensible or measurable)... is there a difference? When you are born you see and feel  numerous different expiriances, objects, things... you sense, comperhend the world around you... but like numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4, ...... all those things: senses, expiriances, existance; they are all just a variations of the same number - 0 (ZERO). They came from nothing, and therefor all of them are also nothing. You dont need a cause for nonexistent thing! Its all just an illusion.


    Philosophy is dangerous, and I am not good at philosophy but I wanted to explore one thing that Weyland said before he "died": "There is nothing", and then David said to him: "I know! Good journey mr. Weyland." David as a soulless machine can comperhend that there is no causality, reason, purpose, there is just this illusion... so things like immortality, life, death and God are not important at all, because they are all the same. We are in a loop of endless illusion. 

    I dont want too much difficult philosophical questions in Prometheus... more mystery and horror please; and some sensible answers to numerous questions that Prometheus delightfully asked.

  10. windebieste
    Yup.  Now yer talkin'.   

     ;D

    Scott loves to load his SF movies up with symbolism and deeper inferences.  'Prometheus' is very heavily laden with such content.  It's just too bad the characters were lacking in order to accommodate the deeper themes the movie embraces.  By layering these movies, and I mean 'Prometheus' and 'ALIEN: Covenant',  with such rich symbology, Scott is making movies that need multiple viewings to fully comprehend the concealed content that we can currently only guess at.  Some people will fail in their appreciation of these movies simply because they can't get beyond the face value of what's projected on the screen when in actual fact, these movies appear to embrace deeper and more challenging existential content than such audiences are familiar with. 

    Most of 'Prometheus' questions can be answered.  Sure, there's some that defy adequate explanation currently.  Nonetheless, its a safe bet that more than just a few questions that require more information - information that looks like we will start seeing in the next movie - is reasonably telegraphed by anyone who has paid attention to the movie in the first place.  What's more important is the level of symbology we are being exposed to.  For some audiences who are expecting simple space adventures they may want to take a good hard look at the rich textures that this fabric is being woven with. 

    From what we are seeing now, particularly with these recent images and what has been revealed to date, literary, mythical and Biblical symbology is only going to continue and expand within this series.  There's a lot more going on here in these new movies than we have seen previously - more than meets the eye, that's for sure.

    Serpents = Xenos  ;D :o

    Expect a lot of symbolism from Covenant... and prepare for a good mystery-horror movie.

    Oh crap, isn't that what they're called in the AvP film and in the latest AvP game?
    God uses the black goo to punish Satan and his servant by turning them into xenos? Wow so the alien would literally be Satan. Man I like it better when they were simply just another beast trying to make it's way in the universe.
  13. CainsSon
    It looks like that they are engineers dying on that field,which suggests a civil war between them. But there some things which interest me: what was the cause of the war,example,decadence and corruption after their golden age of their main civilisation or they created something which divided them such as humanoids,humans,xenomorphs,black goo or worse. It probably started with xeno then the rest of them gone wrong,I mean war, or vice-versa. For xenos,I mentioned before that they probably are not such young species but rather much older,maybe millions or one hundred thousand year old. What do you think about latter,guys?

    I'm pretty sure that in PARADISE LOST the war in Heaven/descent amongst the Angels, is started over God's love for Adam and Eve/humans.

    Also of note:
    "As a result of Adam and Eve's sin (eating the Forbidden Fruit), the gates of Hell are now wide open for Sin and Death (who are actual characters in this poem) to build a bridge from Hell to earth. Satan returns to Hell triumphant, but he and his angels are eventually turned into serpents as punishment for Satan's evil deed. "
  14. LordCassusSnow
    Yup, thats engineer writing on those stone walls. Compare em to the writings in Prometheus and bingo. And as to the lack of Shaw, well, either she and David 8 went their separate ways off screen or David 8 probably turned her into the mother of all xeno's which we'll see at the end of the movie.
  15. whiterabbit
    Man I'm absolutely loving what I'm seeing so far. The practical sets are so damn huge that it has to be done in the wide open for all tourist to photo.

    I'm well aware of the expanded universe. What i should have said was predator comics are called predator not yautja. So if there are more comics coming out focusing on the Engineers, they should be named so as there won't be anymore Prometheus movies. Only Alien ones.
  19. Ulfer
    These pictures are cool. I want to believe that this next movie will be more satisfying than Prometheus, that fell short, alas, of its massive potential. I hope there will be less discrepancy between the alienness I wish to see in the movie and the more conventional part (the human characters, etc.). Let's say it, there is not a great deal of awe and mystery in the great movie sci-fi franchises nowadays ; it's what is at stake here, for me. If the film manages to be really impressive on that matter at least during a few scenes, it would be great. I wish the crew were bold enough to try to go past (at least a bit) the usual platitudes the studios think are necessary in a wide-audience movie (this kind of thing is what makes many blockbusters incredibly boring and disappointing)...
  20. Infected
    Oh and i honestly hope its a three hour movie at least.
    an hour and a half doesnt cut it for me.

    Or he should make a tv show with a big budget and high quality.

    My soul just needs a lot of this mystery and i think a two hour movie is just not enough to cover all the years that follow and we again get nothing year after year.
  21. LordCassusSnow
    Wonder what Prometheus comics will be called now? Engineers perhaps? We'll probably get a true name for the race but still, the Predator isn't Yautja and Alien isn't Xenomorph. I wouldn't mind. Aliens v Predators v Engineers? Anyone?

    Excuse me sir, do you have a moment to talk about our lord and saviour, the Xenomorph? Who burst out of our chests, taking with it all of our sins?
    Wow, but what if that is why the Engineer are pissed at us? We broke with covenant?

    So everyone who joins the Church or Xenology gets a free biomechanical cookie? f**kING CONVERTED! Where is my nearest church?

    I liked the photos, since the first minute of the first Prometheus film this is the first time I'm genuinely feeling there's a mystery worth getting stuck into. Why? Because the scenes look so mysterious! Now just carve out these wonderful set pieces with the right mixture of lighting that you brought to Alien, and not that horrible bland lighting of Prometheus, and we could be talking art. Oh, and please please please don't don't don't have us, your audience, see these scenes in the movie through a stupid helmet cam with bio read outs. Pretty pretty please don't spoil it with helmet cams.
  25. The Alien Predator
    We're going to see Jesus nailed to the cross and by Jesus I mean the Alien with a capital A. Yea we're going to find out that the Alien is our savior and the whole time Ripley was murdering our future. Probably because Ripley is part Engineer which would explain why she is 6 feet tall and full of manliness.

    Oh did I just give away anything, oh my. :P

    Excuse me sir, do you have a moment to talk about our lord and saviour, the Xenomorph? Who burst out of our chests, taking with it all of our sins?

    Oh god... stop it Whiterabbit, stop trying to turn this forum into the Church of Xenology!

    Wait, screw it, everyone off to the cocoons we go... let's get f**king CLEANSED!

    But seriously, I am super freaking excited! These pictures have hyped me up so much.

    We're going to see Jesus nailed to the cross and by Jesus I mean the Alien with a capital A. Yea we're going to find out that the Alien is our savior and the whole time Ripley was murdering our future.

    I think those trees will be towering over everything around them by the time we see them onscreen.  They're  partially built set pieces for actors to immediately be part of.  I doubt we'll be seeing tree stumps in the movie, no matter how large. 

    Besides, there's scaffolding framework in the top of the image that suspiciously looks like it's supposed to support green screens.  This scene will be digitally transformed by the time we see the final version.   That, and all the registration markers place on the ground means this scene is a long way from completion

    They did the same with Lothlorien in Lord of the Rings. Only built the bottom of the trees, the rest was CGI.

    But those trees would probably preclude it being a flashback scene to the past. At least in the ancient Mediterranean area. Don't really get trees of that scale outside of tropical and temperate rain-forests.

    They'll probably have complete trees built digitally for visual effects and the stumps will just be for close-up eye level stuff.

    Look at the faces of the more muscular husks. Those are Engineers. See how they all have that distinct nose?? Also, compare this image to the fossilized pilot suits scratching at one of the doors in the installation on LV-223. You know, the ones Fifield said reminded him of a holocaust painting?

    Too small to be Engineers IMO, but certainly the image looks like a holocaust

    Plus, it is me or there are chains of black goo in this humanoid?
