Michael Fassbender Shows Musical Skills in new Alien: Covenant Production Still

Michael Fassbender shows musical skills in new Alien: Covenant production still. It’s a new day in the Alien: Covenant teaser trailer pre-release week and you know what that means! Another production still courtesy of the Alien Anthology social media accounts, this time of Michael Fassbender with a piano.

Those of you who read our exclusive report about Guy Pearce’s appearance in Alien: Covenant might recognize this imagery. Whose haven’t can read up on it here. Beware spoilers for the opening sequence of the film.

————

Unlike the last four production stills, today’s still doesn’t come with any numbers. Yesterday’s number yielded a result in the GPS co-ordinates theory. Wednesday and Thursday’s numbers led to a location near Fada, Chad. Fada is well known for ancient cave paintings and the imagery matched up quite nicely with Prometheus. However, they could simply be time stamps indicating when the stills were taken – another popular theory.

The agonizing for the Alien: Covenant teaser trailer continues. We’re expecting to see it released at the weekend, likely Christmas Eve or Christmas Day depending on where you are in the world.

  1. cliffhanger
    a weyland android, with weyland's mind 'copied and hardcoded' onto the walter A.I.

    which would then 'explain' how Bishop is an android that is modeled and copied from an actual Bishop human being. who knows.

    Opening scene? WTF?  P.Weyland Born in 1990, android David 8, or news version Walter manufactured in 2090.. previously version David's 7 on Weyland Ind. timeline 2072. In trailer is Young man 40-50 yrs And David..? What..?!

    I thought the image is kind of a callback to the map room scene in Prometheus. If I remember correctly, David sits down at the Engineer's control board and sounds out musical notes to activate the holographic map that hints at the Engineers' plans for Earth. Also, "robot pianist" sounds pretty funny.  ;D

    u c. . The problem os i am doing yjese chats via an old nokia. . They super cheap on surfing the internet. . Nut obviously everything is displayed in a different manner and i am not even sure if all options are available. . They are probably but they might be displayed a
    in an obscure manner. . I don't bkame developers tho. . U can only support older devices up to a certain point. . On douth africa we pay for internet data. . So i only go online with my pc if i wanne download a mp3 or music video or trailer. .i made sure i have pkenry of cap for that prometheus trailer. .and then whats left i will get the mummy trailer and fast 8. . Just cause charlize theron acts in it and she is from my country  and i alteady got kong:skull island trailer. . Probably the only other movie i am really really looking forward to next year. . Tho not the type of movie i would go discuss on a forum. . Just loving the trailer. . 100 foot kong!!!. . And i trailed like 100 miles of topic. . .so to wrap it all up. . Just give us our f**king trailer already

    holy crap how do u fix spelling mistakes and rypos. . I should probably just use my reading glasses. . .lol

    . . And he propably uses her to atract the covenant. . . How does spoiler tags work. . Just need to know what to click and where. ..and what i just said about shaw is purely speculation. .their is always such a thin line berween speculation and those who have claimed they actually seen the trailer or know someone who has seen the rought cut of yje movie. . I have read most of the spoilers and if they true. . .i really dont' mind. . Sounds like a solid  story. .  what if this sargondoa guy is in fact working for fox and just testing our reactions. . I know it might sound far fetched. . Maybe fox is trying to mislead us?. . Far away from the genuine plot. . Thats what i would have done if i was rhem. . Only danger. . What if fans prefer the bullshit u feed them over the teal plot. . .!!!!??

    Pretty sure my theory that Shaw was in cryo the entire time... And she still is will hold true seeing as Shaw IS in the movie aaaaand I'm guessing Davids been using skin/DNA samples from her to create his Neomorphs. David just never woke Shaw up...
  7. juxtapose
    . . Shame poor shaw will most likely die. . Forever seeking her questions to the engineers. . I never felt that she was quite able to fill ripleys shoes. . But it was not her fault. . .i blame the script. . .same with vickers. . Charlize theron's character was their for no purpose. . Other to look pretty and fry halloway. . If mad max came out prior to prometheus. . Then she would have been shaw. . Furiosa vs the aliens. . .i think it would have been splendid. .
  8. juxtapose
    . . Bit how would walter colour his hair. . I am sute his colouring gear was back on  the prometheis. . .which also brings up the question.  . .what did shaw eat and drink while on that horseshoe engeneer ship. . For ten yeats? . .we don't know how long it took them to find the planet. . But even so. . Is their anything edible on this so called paradise they land upon. . .so i think shaw had no choice but climb into a modified engineer sleeping pod till david could find ways to sustain her apetite and thirst . ..
  9. juxtapose
    . . It must be david. . He likes being blond. . Else why would he have colored his hair in the first place. . His a finer psychopath like hannibal. . Will have u eat your brains while u listening to your current favourite track. .deceiving, clever and munipultting. . Thats is how i see david. . Criminal psychotic master mind. .
  10. juxtapose
    .  .and my thinking is that one will be blond and the other with dark hair. .i can't see where david is gonna find hair dye tho. . Unless android hair does not grow.  .they usually apear very smooth and clean shaven. .although bishop always seemed like he skipped a morning shave. .so who knows for sure. . I am losing track of the discussion. . Lol. . What was the topic again?
  11. Ingwar
    This is off topic but I wonder if David and Walter are a nod to producers David Giler and Walter Hill? Of course I'm sure it's something more than that.

    David continues the tradition in the Alien franchise. It might have been coincidence that they named synthetic in Prometheus by the same name as David Giler. Perhaps they wanted to break that pattern in Covenant and came with Walter, this time not by coincidence, paying tribute to Walter Hill.
  12. juxtapose
    . . David was based upon a olympian gay diver or swimmer. . Well that was fassbenders inspiration. . So most not completey hoterosexial men like mtself are often more passionate about the arts. . David has always striked me as an entity that would be facinated by arts and film and poerty and the like. . Where as walter sounds like a very mild and timid sraight fofward sevant. . .but perhaps curious and easily tainted. . His still new and young. . Where as david is older, wiser and more mischevous. . .mysterious and mad?. .and evil and bad, he might see walter as an impresuanable youngster. . Someone he can teach or at least use to his advantage. . His aprentise. . . .. ..mmmmmmmh

    Just my opinion of course Enoch, I got more excited by the first few images. Not to mention the Empire scans from Gazz. Not saying the image isn't interesting of course, as someone who studied lens based fine and applied art in university I'm of the opinion that every 'image' has something interesting to offer. This one just doesn't create the same buzz in me as the first batch. That is all. With regards to the actual image and how it connects and plays out in the film, it certainly makes for a very different setting in an Alien film. While I preferred the first few stills, This one still looks great imo, reminds me of THX-1138 blended with 2001 and A Clockwork Orange.
