Danny McBride Shares Photo from Set of Alien: Covenant

Danny McBride shares photo from set of Alien: Covenant. Earlier this morning the captain of the Covenant, Danny McBride, shared a photo from the set of Alien: Covenant via his Instagram. This image has since been shared by the official Alien Instagram.

It’s a little hard to tell exactly what is going on but it would appear to be a cockpit of some variety. Given the apparently small size, it maybe the cockpit of a shuttle?

Danny McBride shares photo from set of Alien: Covenant.

Given the large blue screens that are seen outside the cockpit windows, it’s possible that this was taken on location at Potts Hill where we saw a ruinous alien city (spoilers).

The picture was shared with the caption “that’s a wrap on #aliencovenant. Ridley is going to scare the shit out of you,” re-expressing that he believed Alien: Covenant to be a “dark horror movie.”

    I think we're due some new stuffs soon??? Its been awhile.  8)

    Dunno if it'll tide you over  :laugh: but Scified have just picked up on something from last month and are posting it everywhere: http://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/index.php?topic=54863.msg2128323#msg2128323

    It's kind of been in Alien since the very beginning. Albeit, it didn't make it onto the screen but ADF has a whole thing at the very start of the Alien novelizations about professional dreamers who had their dreams recorded for entertainment purposes.

    I don't know much outside of the movies. The idea still doesn't sit very well with me.

    That's fair enough. It's a little outside the realms of the "realism" the movies present. Fun tidbit though!

    I never really liked the dream thing. Not only is it lazy writing, but technology like that doesn't feel like it fits in the Alienverse - it went too far into Star Trek territory for my liking.

    You know what would be boss is if they actually filmed a scene where David 8  placed himself in Shaw's dream and investigated the location and watched more than just her but everyone and everything else. Maybe it would make a great 10 minute short film.

    A wild guess would be everyone was filming in new zealand or where ever this place is and MF just happened to be in costume goofing around. In my recollection, he wasn't in any of those scenes and neither was noomy. Maybe they were going to film one and decided not too?

    Why was Fassbender on set during that scene in costume? Not saying it isn't from Prometheus, just confused about the overlap.

    No, it's 100% from Prometheus. That still I just posted above is from our Prometheus gallery. Someone just cropped it and tried to pass it off as from Covenant.

    That's what I thought it was... so now it's just sea-weed. That's a bummer. :P

    Maybe considering David was watching Shaw's dreams, they might have thought it good for Fassbender to witness the filming of it so he has first hand experience with how the dream plays out. Might be better for him rather than just reading it in a script. I'm just guessing though.

    No, he's there. Little Elizabeth looks right at him. It's the conclusion of the dream.

    Guys! Just had a crazy thought about this that I haven't seen posted anywhere. Are we sure that this is actually a cryopod?

    Is it possible that it's actually an android ignition chamber similar to the one saw with David in the prometheus viral marketing? Maybe Daniels is a line produced military robot?

    This one you mean?

    Yeah that's the one. I wonder if it's just a sort of more advanced update on that kind of thing?

    Tumblr reckons this is from Covvie but I'm pretty sure it's just the end of Shaw's dream sequence. That looks like the tracksuit Ridley wears in a lot of the bts shots.

    Yeah, definitely from Prometheus with blonde Fassbender and all.

    It would seem that the days of the Creepy-Crawly departments being staffed solely by pimply guys with Coke-bottle glasses have come to an end.

    Also, it's so cool that the letters glow in the dark. I'd wear that sucker everywhere:D

    Usually, the higher the production budget the higher the marketing budget.

    But once you go past $150 million dollars for an R-rated film you start getting diminishing returns no matter how much you advertise. You simply start running out of cinema-goers. The only way past that hurdle is to lower your rating and get the kids (with all their disposable income and free time) in.

    Maybe with advertising.

    I'd also buy it then. But the officially-released budget for studio films usually exclude marketing.

    They've said repeatedly this is a gory horror film.

    Indeed, Scott himself said he would be pushing for a "hard R".

  18. BonesawT101
    Yeah I doubt very much that the budget is over 200 million. The Martian by comparison was apparently 110 million, prometheus 130 million or there abouts. Wasn't there a rumour a while back that the budget was somewhere in the region of 130-175 million? I'm sure I read that somewhere. Can't remember where now though. Any who, loving the new Gif, it's got a real classic 70s sci fi feel to it in terms of design imo.
  19. windebieste
    I don't see Ridley going out of his way to earn an R-rating; I expect the movie to earn it because it is necessary to the story. It's a grown up, dark movie which is filled with gods and monsters. Both nature and evolution creates horrible things.

    Absolutely. 

    'ALIEN: Covenant' is shaping up to be a mature horror movie experience aimed at an adult audience.  I'm hoping the R-rating will be governed out of necessity as provided by the narrative rather than being dictated by gratuitous sensationalism alone.  Yeah.  This is beginning to look like the real deal.

    Bring it, I say.
