    Gorgeous. Poster of the year? I'm glad to see there is finally something excellent happening in the marketing department.

    Hi Proto!

    The Poster is really impressive. But at the end, its a pure Xeno movie. All those trailers & teasers are simply promoting the bug and all we see is the traditional survival story in the midst of creatures attacking people. A few variations from Xenomorphs to Neomorphs and from Chestburster to Backburster are the only few innovative ideas it seems. A one step short-cut by having spores directly giving birth to a Neomorph and undermining the classical Xeno-lifecycle is something that's spinning off my head.

    I remember I disagreed with you. You were right. Going by the spoiler leaks, Alien: Covenant is going away from that something which made the grand universe of 'Prometheus'. Its really disappointing.

    I am not at all impressed with the costumes, spaceship designs & even the visuals. Just compare any A:C screenshots with screenshots of Prometheus. Prometheus was RICH. I mean, I can't even stand the costumes the Covenant crews are wearing and coming out of the drop ship, and with that hat Walter is wearing; all of them without helmets wandering in an uncharted planet. I mean, if Prometheus was ripped apart just because the crews removed their helmet inside the pyramid, I wonder would there be people bashing A:C for what it is? I am sure, there will be some reason established in the movie for the crews not deciding to wear helmets, but finally it will be just a ploy to have spores thing work!

    Spoiler (click to show/hide)

    I am not having high expectations, which in one way is good, if the film turns out to a surprise and holds the DNA & quality of Prometheus.

    *Added spoiler tags. Hicks.

    Guess what I've got a bunch of on the way to me to do another competition with?  :P

    Oh gosh I'm definitely going to try again even though I already won one of the last ones lol  ;D

    Not sure if the wife will let me hang anymore posters, need a room just for my alien stuff now lol.
    Damn you lol.

    I've not decided what this one is going to be just yet.
    Please consider doing it on this site.

    Its very Renaissance / Underworld painting. Very that. Its also very reminiscent of Alien Resurrection when Ripley gets pulled down via osmosis through a writhing mass of Xenos and appendages until she reaches the lair where the abomination hybrid creature is birthed.

    I like it, but its also quite disturbing (perhaps because of the renaissance / underworld theme)

    Logic doesn't dictate that at all.

    Who says future spaceship thrusters are even that hot? They wouldn't need to be,
    hahah ok whatever it takes man

    all aboard the roflcopter folks.

    We are airborne!!

    You need to take a step back and chill out with the condescending attitude. If your intent here to just to slag off fellow fans for differing opinions and you're unable to maintain a reasoned and mature discussion over the subject, you're better off not participating at all.

    *sigh* still not the point...

    It sort of is when you say "i just wish someone would go back and update the cgi" :P Because there's hardly any CGI to update and what little there is looks OK.

    But yeah, the rod puppet compositing looks really bad today. A shame because the behind the scenes footage of the puppet being filmed show that it was beautifully made and animated. They just screwed up editing it into the film.

    i apologize for my over-generalization - i know they used puppets and practical effects (which were interesting on their own) - but you missed the point.  the digital trickery used to sew their puppets into the movie left much to be desired.

    That wasn't digital either. It was composited optically, the old-fashioned way. The only thing done digitally was its shadow, and that isn't really what makes it look awful.

    *sigh* still not the point... however they did it, the digital trickery used to sew their puppets into the movie left much to be desired.  i'd just love to see the shots of the alien running/on the ceiling/approaching ripley touched up one day.

    Maybe the acid blood that sprayed all over the place from the puncture wound in its chest provided a temporary protective coating.   :D

    Big Chap is still alive I tell you! The engines gave him a nice little push and he floated back to David’s secret base under LV-426 to report his findings on cats, ladies underwear and sharp objects, which bloody well hurt!... Plasma engines are fun though; give you a nice little tickle. :laugh:

    I blame it all on RS’s 1999 directors commentary myself. Talking about the alien being invincible and perfect when commenting on Ash’s speech, gave a good fanning to the flames of misconception.
     
    Got to love good old Ridley.

    I always get a good laugh out of these:







    Yeah they're suppose to be hot and they are suppose to incinerate the alien. Apparently since neither is shown on film in detail it didnt happen at least to some.


    And people complain about cgi... But if there had been cgi in 1979, you would not have this argument now.

    Hey guys, I was wondering what these areas were.

    The red area looks like something with an eye? (perhaps the thing subjugated in the Prometheus Mural?)

    Also, what is that in the green area? Looks like some weird growth from the Alien head...

    (unsure of how to post an image, so attached the file!)

    But logic dictates, at least to me, that if the alien’s exoskeleton can withstand a blast from the thrusters of a spaceship, considering the extreme forces involved, different as they maybe, then a spear should present little problem.

    Logic doesn't dictate that at all.

    Who says future spaceship thrusters are even that hot? They wouldn't need to be, the only reason rocket engines are hot now is because of the fuel we use. Relatively thin plate steel would protect you from moderate heat for a few seconds (certainly as long as the Alien is in the exhaust stream in the film), but an armour-piercing bullet will go straight through it.

    I believe they were supposed to be plasma. At least according to RS.

    In the script the thrusters were supposed to incinerate the alien. So yes, they were supposed to be pretty hot.

    He is quite right, there are forms of propulsion that don't require heat. I believe one example is an Ion Drive, which we already have today.

    the problem is, Alien3 completely killed and destroyed that. there was so much to go for and all the worst were taken.
    They never had to kill the crew. That would have been a base for so much more.

    For everyone who is bitter that they killed Hicks and Newt, there's someone who finds the idea of the three of them going around as some kind of Alien ass-kicking family really cringe-worthy.

    wanting them to survive in Alien3 does not equal wanting to see them as a Alien asskick family at all.
    As i mentioned above, i didn't mention Newt at all except for her survival.
    As far as i'm concerned, she should have been taken into temporal custody in a safe haven with her family,
    there's a easy (cheap) solution to have her have uncles and aunts and nephews and that they would gladly take care of her,
    with Ripley promising she'll come back soon, a promise she can't keep.....

    Ripley not being able to allow a space station with many families to get the same aftermath as Hadley's hope colony to happen,
    and Hicks backing her up in her plan to infiltrate the compound and put an end to what's going on there, and mayhem already haven
    started when they arrive.

    As far as i'm concerned, either Hicks or Ripley could have died during those events. Hicks sacrificing himself to save Ripley for example.
    Or at the end Ripley gets facehugged and Hicks promises he'll protect her and cryo her in and will take her to scientists he knows that
    can help her, so she doesn't kill herself. It would actually make Resurection still possible somehow.

    Thing is, Ripley already turned into the 'space alien warrior' and we have had zero problems with Weavers portrayal in every single outing,
    so i dont think that would be a huge issue. Hicks grew into a heroic character during the events of Aliens and simply got hurt, he could
    put a great performance in being a slightly handicapped hero.

    Ripley was hardly badass in Alien, she became a absolute badass in Aliens. Hicks was a great marine in Aliens, he could have become
    absolutely legend in Alien3.

    again, there were so many possibilities to go with Alien3. Unfortunately, Hicks and Ripley are too old now to continue where they left off and turn Alien3 in a nightmare instead of canon.

    i love alien 3 (assembly).  i just wish someone would go back and update the cgi.  the cgi makes me pout :(

    The Alien in the third film wasn't CGI...

    It surprises me that people still think it was.


    i apologize for my over-generalization - i know they used puppets and practical effects (which were interesting on their own) - but you missed the point.  the digital trickery used to sew their puppets into the movie left much to be desired.  the lighting was wrong, it looked green-screened, and interrupted the viewing experience.  and the fact that so many "people still think" it's cgi is my point: it doesn't look real, and i wish someone would fix that, because the movie has a lot to offer. 

    that is all.  carry on  8)

    Things that can be pierced can be hard to break apart, tear, or crush. Things that can be easy to break apart or crush can be hard to pierce. They're very different physical forces. Susceptibility to one isn't much of an indication of the others.

    And your dismissive eye roll doesn't change that.

    To be fair SiL, you do make a valid point. But logic dictates, at least to me, that if the alien’s exoskeleton can withstand a blast from the thrusters of a spaceship, considering the extreme forces involved, different as they maybe, then a spear should present little problem.


    A Kevlar vest is not a complex organic life form. ;)
    ssshh quiet!, it's just your..., misconception of things, was it?
    :laugh:


    Hard to argue with that!  :laugh:

    The derelict to the space jockey, the eggs, the facehugger, Kane's death, all building up to the first reveal of the alien with Brett's demise... pure gold.


    You disappoint me Predaker. If your going to start to agree with me, then where’s the fun in that?  :laugh:

    My reason for wanting this movie to be awesome?  It's a very selfish one.

    I want to come back here and dissect and discuss the film for a long time and I want as many of you guys to be happy as I hope to be :)

    The problem I've always had with Alien 3 isn't that Newt and Hicks died. If I want to see them alive, I can just pop in Aliens and watch it again. My issue with A3 is that it has all the emotional maturity of an angsty teenager's livejournal account.
  18. Predaker
    Suggesting that ALIENS somehow hampered or prevented any future films from being classics alongside the originals is a bit disingenuous.
    The damage on the creature was indeed irreparable, and all just to make his own version of starship troopers, as he even admitted not too long ago

    What damage are you specifically referring to and how was it irreparable?

    the problem is, Alien3 completely killed and destroyed that. there was so much to go for and all the worst were taken.
    They never had to kill the crew. That would have been a base for so much more.

    For everyone who is bitter that they killed Hicks and Newt, there's someone who finds the idea of the three of them going around as some kind of Alien ass-kicking family really cringe-worthy.

    Personally I took it in stride when Hicks and Newt died, but keeping them alive wouldn't automatically lead to Lost in Space with Aliens.

    Yup. Killing them was a bit excessive maybe, but the thought of the same group visiting the homeplanet or some sht like that is fcking terribad. :P 

    Rather see them back with cameo's etc, give em a nice spot on Gateway..adopt Newt... and hump a few more. Then after a few origin movies let Covenants Neomorphs destroy Gateway, kill Newt and Hicks and start a new forum on the internet were everyone can btch about it.

    Aternative dimension created! BOOOM!

    You have to understand that it is a very difficult task, bordering act of faith to begin a conversation as to why Alien 3 was better or worse, while having such statement as the one and only starting point for debate.

    Simply put, It's very difficult to take the argument any seriously as it kinda mirrors a child's beguilement

        DECODING THE ALIEN COVENANT POSTER IN COLOR!!     .  (By Gavin Singleton of scified)

    http://www.alien-covenant.com/aliencovenant_uploads/color_ac_poster.jpg

       The legend for the colors used is as follows: 
    Quote
    Yellow - Protomorphs (3)
    Light Turquoise Blue - Xenomorphs (9)
    Dark Blue - Engineers (4)
    Purple - Trilobite (at least 1)
    Red - Queen (at least 1)
    Green - Facehuggers (2)

    Quote
          Some have suggested that what I have identified as the Queens crown carapace may in actuality be the body of a Trilobite. I postulate that is instead both, as the body section of the Trilobites back shares some similar markings to that of the Queens crown carapace.

    You will also notice that the three Protomorphs are shown almost unobstructed and unrestrained, whereas the numerous Xenomorphs seem to be overwhelmed, with only their heads visible among the mass. Most interesting are the four engineers, the three males of which are being subjugated, two by (differing) Facehuggers, and one by the Trilobite. The female engineer (the bosom/breast is too full to be male, the upper arm is less muscular and the hand is more feminine) is the only Engineer not being attacked, though like the other three Engineers her face is obscured.

    The monochrome, untreated areas are where the mystery remains. Although there is an arm visible in the top left quadrant with an accompanying rib cage, whatever this figure is meant to be has been morphed into the surrounding mass. More interesting is the pelvic shaped mass above this arm and the inhuman mass beneath the lowermost Engineer.

    As for the inferred meaning of all of this one can only speculate, as the best art even that which is memorial in nature is meant to be open to the interpretation of the audience. Even when the artist is clearly depicting something identifiable the best examples of art, especially renaissance pieces can be viewed from a different perspective.

     My interpretation of this piece would be that the Engineers and Xenomorphs are being subjugated by the Trilobite with the Protomorphs rising from the chaos. The Queen/Trilobites crown being displayed top and center is possibly symbolizing said creatures position in the hierarchy of the hive mass depicted, possibly inferring that the Queen is closer related to the Protomorph than the classic Xenomorph.   

       http://www.alien-covenant.com/topic/43817 


    Makes sense.

    Queen > Trilobite > Protomorphs/Neomorphs > Xenomorphs (Which I believe to be tampered by David).

    What if Alien ends up becoming a robot apocalypse sci-fi genre? Creator vs Created. Synthetics vs Organics. David vs Humans. Alien vs Humans. Basically, David the synthetic tampers with the xenomorph to create a biomechnical version of it to destroy his creator, mankind. Remember that Ridley Scott is responsible for both Alien and BLade Runner. He might link both of them in the same universe.

    Exactly, some of the shots were puppets filmed in front of green screen and inserted into scenes, eg (I'm assuming) the horrible looking scene with the alien coming up to Ripley which absolutely looks like bad cgi.

    From wikipedia: "The Alien is portrayed by both Woodruff, Jr. in a suit and a rod puppet filmed against bluescreen and optically composited into the live-action footage"
  24. cliffhanger
    i agree that the way Aliens was set made it really difficult for future movies as a lot of mystery was removed from the being.
    offcourse Aliens had some elements in it that could have been better, but that's with any movie, really.
    There's a reason Aliens is regarded the best sequel to a movie almost ever, and in some regards is even seen as better than the original.

    there was enough to work with though.

    the problem is, Alien3 completely killed and destroyed that. there was so much to go for and all the worst were taken.
    They never had to kill the crew. That would have been a base for so much more.

    And as Ridley said, he never understood why they didnt look into it's origins. They could have went there with Alien3.
    Where did it come from, why?

    Ripley, Hicks, Bishop, Newy all waking up from reaching 'home base' and in discussion with Weyland Yutani chairmen.
    Undermining what happened and being suspicious of Ripley's deeds and removing Hicks decorations and deactivating Bishop.
    Bishop stating that they sent another vessel when discovering the nuclear explosion on 'acheron' and taking a batch of eggs
    with them, having been frozen solid and brought to a space station for investigation.
    Hicks suggesting they have to go there and stop what's going on before it's too late since they have no idea what they're doing.
    You would get more or less the Alien Isolation story, which is an awesome story really.

    They also would have brought material from the derelict and discover it had communicated to a specific planet when crashing,
    opening the story for the origins story.

    instead, they came with the most stupid ideas ever like a wooden planet with monks.
