Updated: Alien: Covenant Prop Display at Comic Con Experience?

Will 20th Century Fox have an Alien: Covenant Prop Display at Comic Con Experience? It looks like Fox may be gearing up to show some Alien: Covenant props to the public at Comic Con Experience, the Brazilian convention, over the next few days.

Yesterday, 20th Century Fox teased that Alien: Covenant would be there in some fashion and their latest tweet seems to hint at the possibility of some sort of prop display!

“In @ 2016, learn a little more of the universe in an exhibition with unique parts of the movie!

Exhibition with exclusive objects.” It would appear that 20th Century Fox will be displaying props from Alien: Covenant at Comic Con Experience.

The text on the image tweeted translates to “exhibition with exclusive objects.” Another tweet translates to “exhibition of original pieces.” It’s possible that something may be lost in the translation and it ends up being something else entirely – some footage, perhaps? – but it sounds more likely that this is indeed a prop display. With the convention starting tomorrow, we’ll find out soon!

For those who don’t know, an escape room is a type of adventure game in which you are locked into a room and have to solve puzzles to determine a means to escape. An Alien themed escape room sounds like a fantastic experience! Thanks to Scified for the heads up about this latest tweet.

    "The panel Fox in CCXP - Comic Con Experience in 2016 showed the first scenes of backstage Alien: Covenant. The material had Ridley Scott giving Some details about the plot.

    According to him, the film will bring the roots of the Alien franchise back. The plot is located just before the first film Alien and xenomorfo will be present all the time, as the first poster. Also according to the director, the production much less bet on science fiction than Prometheus .

    The film, Scott explains in the video, will follow a crew with a mission to colonize a distant place in space. They find a planet unmapped what appears to be harmless, with mountains and rivers (all filmed in New Zealand), but holds many dangers and the group will need to combat the danger of the place. The idea, he says, is to bring back the atmosphere of horror. A claustrophobic aesthetic:  "I think it will scare the people of truth" . He also talked about the character of Michael Fassbender , which is dangerous, but "may have a soul" . The scenarios seem grandiose, with statues of the faces of the engineers who resemble the heads of Easter Island. The debut Alien: Covenant is scheduled for May 19, 2017."

    Sounds like the video I mentioned earlier. I hope we'll get to see that online eventually.

    Someone who went posted about the Escape Room on the Facebook page:

    Well, nothing new but the plot was that we were the members of the Convenant ship and after answering a distress call from another spacecraft, we find a sole survivor and he's infected...We manage to escape before the aliens arrive, but idk how much of it is accurate with the movie's real plot xD

    I hope this doesn't mean that Covenant will be just a simple horror movie.
    I'm for the return of stifling atmosphere à la Alien but says like this, the film looks much less ambitious than Prometheus.

    @AL I didn't translate this, my browser did it :)

    :P it was quite accurate



            From the same site that Himmelblau took the article


    ...The audience had a chance to get a synopsis of the film and a guided tour by Ridley Scott himself in some sets.
    Covenant is going to happen ten years after Prometheus. We will accompany another expedition team in search of an unknown planet to begin the colonization process. Believing they had parked on a deserted planet, the team will face the unexpected creatures that will bring a complete destruction of the ship's crew.

    With sinister locations in the midst of marshes without trees, Scott promises "This movie will scare the shit out of you!". By the concepts that we saw translated into scenarios, storyboards, lighting games and locations, we have no doubt about that.

    After the showing of the video, there was a chat with Afonso Solano about the biology of the xenomorph And the inspiration of Giger and Scott in translating the creature as a mixture of man's greatest fears: sex and insects. Nothing more appropriate.

    Translation of the ESCAPE 60  CCXP:

    https://i1.wp.com/nosbastidores.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/ALIEN.jpg?resize=1280%2C640

    Known attraction for his challenging puzzles he set up a stand that mimics a spaceship with the name "Escape 60 Xtreme - Alien Covenant". It is the union of the new movie from the alien monster franchise with the group challenge game. In it you can not work alone but in partnership. Everyone helping each other.

    When entering the ship the assistant who stays inside helps people with what they should do and what is prohibited. We have about ten minutes to find all the clues inside the ship. So we started working as a team. As I had some experience, I started to guide the group of young people as a way to get out of the place.

    It is important in this game to have a leader to direct the actions otherwise people get lost and the game ends up becoming a "each for itself" and that is not the idea of ​​the game. I will not tell you details about the challenges so that you will not lose the grace of who to attend in the next few days.

    The proposed challenges are relatively simple, I do not know if they will be the same ones that will be available in the Escape rooms scattered around SP. I think it's a preview and a way to promote the movie since the Alien character is a pop icon.

    After seven minutes out of ten we had already finished the challenge and discovered a way out of the ship. The assistant outside said to a girl. "They ended up missing three minutes. They were the best. " And then everyone on the team won as a prize a beautiful picture with plaques and the best: Vips tickets to the Imax room of the UCI network. Unity is strength.

    Ingwar did a great job in the translation of the article.


    I have tried to look for more news but there are only two articles about the FOX panel, and they both say the same thing.

    The artist who did that fan poster should seek legal advice and take Fox to the cleaners!  :laugh:

    They wouldn't have done it without artist permission. That teaser poster says one thing: we can expect a lot of Fassbender as David and Walter. Hell yeah.

    Guy in that video (11 seconds) looks like Benjamin Rigby or maybe it's just my imagination.

    Is this from the link, and that's it for the convention or is there more??

    total bummer that nothing really came of this event outside of an updated "poster" of sorts.

    i talked to a guy who actually went into the Escape 60 thing. said it was kinda neat, but nothing new or interesting was revealed about Covenant.

    The panel hasn't happened yet. That's in another 10 hours or so. But yeah, the exhibition is a big letdown.
    I'm not really sure what people expected. It would've been really weird for Fox to drop world-first news in Brazil of all places.

    Prometheus did OK in South America, It did pretty alright in Brazil considering.  So it wasn't completely out of the realm of possibility that they might gives them a little something. 

    Still, people seem to think every Convention should be like the big US ones.  Different expectations for different places. 

    It's only a little over 6 months till release date, so I suspect in the next 2 weeks we will have lots to talk about as the hype train is gonna have to get started considering the budget of this one.300+ million to break even (with ad budget and all that shit factored in) for a very hard R horror movie?  They are really gonna have to start to hype it very soon.

    I also don't really get excited anymore.  I'm a hit at parties.

    This is phucking amazing, i can't believe it. We're getting Alien Convenant, Alien 5(alt 3), new Predator.
    Fox is at it again, but this time it seems they want nail that shit. If only we got a real Aliens Colonial Marines as Randy Bitchfraud promised. Non the less, it's awesome to see Alien getting some love again.
  12. Corporal Hicks
    I've asked him for a more in depth explanation... I'll let you know what he says when he replies

    Thanks, much appreciated.

     :( in twitter and the event schedule, they only say ....exhibition with exclusive pieces (props, objects) of the film, and ''other news'' in a panel full of special attractions.

    So I guess we will have to wait for the ''other news''  between 20:00 and 21:30 (London time)

    ... the trailer of O Rastro will be introduced at 21:30, but  is a Brazilian horror film, about a doctor and missing patients.
