Alien Covenant: Official Collector’s Edition Book is currently scheduled for release on the 23rd of May, alongside Simon Ward’s The Art and Making of Alien: Covenant and Alan Dean Foster’s novelization.

The Alien Covenant: Official Collector’s Edition Book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon (UK and US) for £15/$20.

The Alien Covenant: Official Collector's Edition Book will feature interviews with various cast members, including Michael Fassbender.  Alien Covenant: Official Collector's Edition Book To Be Released

The Alien Covenant: Official Collector’s Edition Book will feature interviews with various cast members, including Michael Fassbender.

The production page over on Amazon also comes with a new synopsis of Alien: Covenant and confirms James Franco’s involvement with the film (as we exclusively revealed last year):

When a shipload of human colonists investigates an apparently habitable planet, they have no idea of the horror they are about to discover. But the biggest danger may perhaps come from a more unexpected source.”

    This is from the upcoming Sideshow Alien King statue. Looks like it will go this direction.

    That's something I've wanted to see for ages - Alien's coming up from the ground like that. I got a little of it in that big battle sequence in Three World War but I want more. More god damn it!

    design does look similar, including the fingers!

    Yep Corp, so true. Just too sad that the whole King concept is silly as hell and looks like SpaceCraft recycled garbage in my opinion. Well, so I have to do an own one.....:D :D :D  (not King concept I mean, but something crawling out of somewhere) :D

    Oh man, please do! I miss seeing new pics from you.

    to the person who addressed an awareness of robots vs organisms: there's a series out there called transformers, you might have seen it?  i kid.  mostly. 

    But more importantly, as Perfect-Organism stated, if you are familiar with HR Giger and his body of work, you'd know that the "creatures" he created were essentially organic machinery, seamlessly merging mechanical forms with biological organism (hence "biomechanical").  I don't think it's too far outside of the realm of possibilities, especially when the design of the original alien creature had very clear mechanical features (and has always been described as such). 

    david seems to be playing scientist on this new planet of his, so i can imagine he'd be curious to see what effects the black goo (and its offspring) had on his own kind. 
  5. Perfect-Organism
    It's an absurd, check your brain at the door kind of idea.   So yes you're right; that would be an appropriate idea for the sequel to Prometheus.  ;)

    How so?  We are standing on the gates of all sorts of possibilities that genetic engineering will hold for the future.  Who is to say that you can't genetically engineer an organism (a plant) to be a chair, or something much more complex?  It's fair game for compelling science fiction.
  6. Perfect-Organism
    Well, actually, there has always been a tacit implication in the alien series that there may be some sort of connection between the biological and the mechanical.  Many of H.R. Giger's paintings portrayed biomechanical landscapes, and that is where the idea seems to stem from.

    How often has it been stated that the Juggernaut looks like it may have been grown?  And yest it is a machine.

    In the Rage War series, we have a biological creature of sorts that is creating all manner of machinery.

    It's an interesting idea, this mixing of organic and mechanical, and I would say entirely appropriate for the Aliens series.
  7. Feeds On Minds
    Does noone on this form understand the difference between a robot and a living organism?   Asking if a facehugger can impregnate an android, is like asking if a facehugger can impregnate your car.  ::)  ::)  ::)

    i havent read through all the comments, so i dont know if this has been brought up before, but does anyone think there may be a chance that walter gets impregnated (at the hands of david, most likely), thus giving birth to our biomechanical love child ..?

    I just deeply hope, that the original´s ALIEN creature and the Space Jockey are meant to be something of an older and more primal source of the species, and all else is an Engineer and David attempt to reverse engineer the stuff. HOPE!

    I will definitely be hoping you are correct!


    I think they're doing a slow progression of the creature until the other movies get around to tying up the dots to the original film. I'm not much of a fan of the fleshy vibe, but the head and jaw look really nice.

    Yeah the jaw and front of the head look pretty cool.

    Goodbye biomechanic beauty...

    You're so very right, I don't think we'll ever see the return of the biomechanical aspects of the creature, its been fading for such a long time now, I used to just blame ADI lol. I had hoped that Scott would be the one who would bring it all back but unfortunately it seems he is determined to take us even farther away from Giger's nightmarish vision.

    It's likely not a 100% representation of the Alien, even if it is based on Stanley. Looks drawn so there's probably some degree of artistic license going off too. I don't think the Alien in the film will be looking that green or white.
  14. 426Buddy
    I wonder if the cover art is a representation of the creature in the film?

    It sure looks like the creature on the poster and it is a bit more fleshy/reptilian like I heard rumored.
