Alien: Covenant Release Pulled Forward & Fox Offers First Glimpse Of The Alien

20th Century Fox has announced that the release date for Alien: Covenant has been pulled forward yet again, this time from August 4th to May 19th.

The announcement comes via a teaser poster that has just been released on 20th Century Fox’s various social media platforms. The new teaser posters also offers us our first look at the upcoming film’s Alien: Covenant’s traditional Alien, with a simple tagline of “Run”. We have also confirmed with 20th Century Fox that this is an announcement in change of release date.

Fox announces that Alien: Covenant's release has been pulled forward to May 19th 2017 with a new teaser poster showing the film's Alien! Alien: Covenant Release Pulled Forward & Fox Offers First Glimpse Of The Alien

Fox announces that Alien: Covenant’s release has been pulled forward to May 19th 2017 with a new teaser poster showing the film’s Alien!

As we previously mentioned, 20th Century Fox has been recently testing the film and are currently filming additional footage at Leavesden Studios. This marks the second time Alien: Covenant has had it’s release pulled forward (it was originally announced with a release date of October 2017) and Alien vs. Predator Galaxy has heard that the studio is pleased with how the film is turning out.

This additional change in release potentially shows real confidence on the part of 20th Century Fox as it now puts Sir Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel release into close proximately with Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (May 5th). Alien: Covenant’s only similar competition on release date, however, is Annabelle 2.

    The first Prometheus trailer came out about six months before the film was released, in December. Prometheus came out in June; Covenant is coming out in mid-May so I imagine we'll still be getting one in December for it, too.

    When is this trailer coming out already! Surely with the new release date it must be soon. Other films start the teasers of teaser trailer much earlier ... Basically, I don't do waiting  ::) Nice idea for the header.

    Nice! Thanks for sharing.

    You're welcome. If you want me to modify something, say it. It did not take long.
    Hey that's a nice wallpaper but if it is not too much trouble, could you perhaps, add Ellen Ripley to it. Say about 10 years old... plus some snazzy dialog about her mother being the savior of humanity. I'd like that.

    The Alien: From Egg To Adult By Smell

    Egg:
    Earthy, like sniffing a fungus growing on some moist dirt... until it opens.

    Once opened, you would smell the most wretched fart. Not like a normal fart. The fart of an emaciated old lady wandering the halls of an old folk's home. Spoiled, boiled cabbage. The fart that tells you something's wrong with a person.

    Facehugger:
    This little guy still reeks of the egg for awhile, but it's own enzymes quickly clean it, giving way to a musky smell.

    If dead & dry, it would smell much like the closed egg. If still alive & lubricated, more like patchouli & machine oil.

    Chestburster:
    Now of course the Chestburster is going to smell pungent & coppery when it's freshly birthed, being covered in the blood of whatever.

    Shortly after though you would find that it smelled much farty like the inside of the egg. Maybe not as bad, probably like a freshly opened bag of BBQ potato chips. This is true of course until it begins shedding it's skin, at which point it would gradually give way to -

    Adult:
    The adult Xenomorph is constantly excreting lubricant from it's hide & drool from it's mouth which allows it to be a silent killer, a well oiled machine. The scent of the adult Xenomorph will vary slightly depending on it's environment & the amount and type of particulates it can absorb into it's body through the tubes on it's back.

    Being biomechanical in nature I would imagine the adult Xenomorph has a very subtle scent if any, & that it would, if anything, smell faintly of machine oil or sex lubricant. If one were to encounter a cold, dry Alien that had been exposed to the vacuum of space for a brief period you might catch a wiff of motel room air conditioner just before it huffs it's pharyngeal jaw deep into your cranium.

    When he's not covered in guts, the adult Xenomorph smells like the guy that changes your oil & is sleeping with his boss' wife. Start living right, Joe.

    Speaking of which, I don't think it has ever been addressed what aliens smell like, has it? Wonder if it will be brought up in the movie here. I mean, if the alien from the first movie smelt of something or even of all the rotting guts and brains of the former crew members, it would have given the survivors a visceral prompt of its presence.

    There are no insects on Earth that transforms their prey into eggs.

    Worth mentioning that according to Ridley, nothing is transformed, the cocooned person is just a food source that the egg uses to grow. There are lots of insects that use still-living prey to feed their growing young like that.

    I know what you mean, but at a basic biological level that is what exactly what eating and digestion is.    The egg, via the mechanism of digestions, is transforming the food source into itself.  I can transform pizza and hamburgers into body fat pretty easy :)

    Interesting word Run. To me the word links to Vickers telling David that if she doesn't tell him what Weyland said she'd find the cord that makes him run and pull it. I guess 10 PRINT "HELLO WORLD!", 20 GOTO 10, RUN
    sort of thing. So Run to me made me immediately think of that, "running" or being alive in David's terms. I guess it's nothing to do with this but that's what I thought of.

    You can't wish for something to happen. In the end, this is Ridley's idea. It is his creation. People need to stop this whole "I want this....that". You cannot please everybody. Besides, the derelict on LV 426 is much older than the year in which covenant will be taking place, thus, the alien being created by David on this new planet would conflict with evidence of eggs found on LV426. Let's be honest, he will not be bending the timeline this much.

    I rewatched Prometheus last night...it wasn't as bad as I remembered, but the unforgiving issues I have still concern the stupid character choices, the humanoid engineers and the crudely edited finale.

    Is it possible to salvage the mystery of the Xeno and the Engineers? Yes. Just please don't let the Xeno's be a human hybrid made by David's experiments with the biomatter, and please let the Engineers be themselves mere servants to a higher, more "Alien" being.

    The last thing we need is detailed explanations, excessive exposition of who and what these beings are. Imagine how creepy the briefest glimpse of another intelligent creature could be -  a master in the shadows, letting his beasts wreak havoc.

    Of course I'm delighted there's a new movie arriving, I'm just more or less convinced the enigmas of the original film will be diluted, if at all present.

    You mean to tell me that you haven't heard of the nasty insect called Ripley?

    It is eggmorphing the franchise into a reboot as we speak!

    Lol kidding.  :laugh:

    Some have suggested that the eggmorphing is probably not a process turning the host into an egg, but simply breaking it down into a nutritional sludge for the Alien/s.

    But I like the idea of eggmorphing, it really sounds terrifying to be transformed while fully aware of it. Actually, both sound terrifying, turned into egg or into food for the hive... why not have both? It'd double the terror. Maybe the eggmorphed person's leftovers are used by the Facehugger for energy when it leaves the egg, and also for biological materials to help grow and maintain the emgryo. The queen usually provides everything needed when she lays an egg, but if one's not present then this'd make sense.

    But a separate scenario is where a person is placed into a pre-prepared empty egg-like sac to be broken down and eaten by the others. So most of the time they'd likely be doing this if a queen is present, but if not, then they'd resort to eggmorphing. This makes me think of how ant and been hives have specific places where food is stored. How bees have them polygons to help feed the hive. Maybe Alien hives have these egg-like feeders for their hive.

    Perfect organism, the ultimate survivor is ready for anything! Extinction can kiss its chitinous acidic arse for all it cares.

    It's not just hideous - it's incomprehensible.  It's truly Alien in a way we find completely outside our experience. 

    -Windebieste.

    Not really, various nasty insects do it all the time.

    What 'nasty insects'? 

    There are no insects on Earth that transforms their prey into eggs.  What's more, we aren't hosts to be cocooned or transformed in this way by any naturally occurring organism on this planet thus making the process outside our experience. 

    Some insects use hosts to breed in.  All insects physically change and metamorphose from larvae to adult.   There are no insects that combine both of these traits to physically alter the host and transform them. These are 2 different processes at work here and they do not occur together.  You could add a 3rd trait to this list.  Some insects actually cocoon their prey* - but once again, no actual transformation is taking place to the host.

    The egg morph victims are not turned into Aliens; their bodies are used for sustenance and protection for a deposited spore (Giger thought the Alien “drains the blood out of its human prey and [forms] the dried husk into a cocoon"). Probably why the inside of an egg looks like somebody's guts (and why the eggs in the scripts were described as having a 'tan discolouration' and 'leathery' appearance: they're rendered literally from flesh.)

    This I completely agree with.   Bring on Eggmorphing I say.  Sounds like fun to me!  ;)

    -Windebieste.

    *No.  I am not talking about spiders.  Spiders are not insects.  Mind you, they don't transform their prey into eggs, either.  :P

    Question popping to mind, how will the subsequent posters turn out, how creative will they get? The possibilities are endless. On another note, Scott had made a comment of doing 3 Prometheus sequels allegedly, is he still intending to do this or have his plans changed?

    I'd assume Prometheus was simply a trilogy, Alien Covenant would be the second chapter and the third movie to come after wards will be the one the links up to the events of the original Alien. if there's any movie out of these 3 I want its the one that links to the original Alien, that's the prequels I've been waiting for.

    From what I've gathered, Prometheus will act as a bit of a Prologue and THIS film will begin a trilogy of new films that link with Alien.

    It's still generally outside of human experience, even if bugs do it all the time.

    Wayne mentioned in the AVPG interview that Scott was still interested in shooting two more Alien prequel films in Aussie. That's the latest.

    Actually Alien: Covenant will be the first movie of a trilogy as far as I understand it. I'm not sure if anyone remembers way back when, but I remember Ridley saying that he was planing on doing 3 or 4 movies.

    Yup.

    Probably why the inside of an egg looks like somebody's guts (and why the eggs in the scripts were described as having a 'tan discolouration' and 'leathery' appearance: they're rendered literally from flesh.)

    IIRC, they used actual bovine stomach lining/intestines, didn't they? Wonder what the set smelled like under the hot studio lights and summer heat?

    Kane also uses the words "leathery objects" to describe the eggs in the film itself.
