New Entertainment Weekly Alien: Covenant Stills

Entertainment Weekly has just shared two brand new Alien: Covenant stills. We get a further look at the bombing scene that was shown at CinemaCon and we glimpsed briefly in the recent Empire Magazine article.

    I fear you've lost me.  Follow my own advice, is that it?  Sorry if I'm reading that wrong.  I should care to ask for clarification.  Many thanks.

    :)

    Okay, I see.  However, to the best of my knowledge, I haven't actually dismissed anybodies thoughts, nor have I been insulting in conversation (certainly not in recent memory, at any rate) but okay, fair enough.  Duly noted.

    Thanks for the quotes, Predaker.


    Come to think about it, i really wonder if David perceives himself as a sort of lifeform, the only one worth existing no doubt. But wouldnt it then be more logical for him to try to replicate himself, rather than experimenting in the biological camp again (just like the engineers did). He obviously doesnt consider himself as being imperfect at all and with all the technology surrounding him he sure should be able to produce more Davids? I mean if weak cruel dying decadent humanity could build him..
  3. Predaker
    Predaker reminded me in the other thread (which, yikes) that David was apparently referring to humanity with that line - i.e., humanity starting out in the stars, colonizing with the Covenant.

    But the idea of the Engineers being reduced to the quasi-agrarian society suggested in the pictures as a kind of analogy for divine punishment is a very interesting idea.


    Ah ok, but humanity isnt really re-starting, arent they? Unless ok he means the process of seeding life, which they somehow repeat by colonizing okok.. But that would definitely imply that David makes no difference in agency when it comes to engineers/humans. Humans then deserve to die because their "fathers" have ++++ it up millenias ago, and they dont get their own take on things.Thats in line with the mythical approach i guess.

    Here is more of the dialogue that goes with that quote from David.

    My (limited) understanding is that he's referring to the Covenant expedition, which I think the crew has said is the first deep-space colonization project. Much has been made in the trailers, the Last Supper, the promos etc. of this being humanity's next big leap forward, starting a new 'life' in the frontier, a new future for humanity, etc etc. David's comments appear to be a response to that.

    I think he's also accounting for his own experience with Peter Weyland, who he loved/hated and who I think is his basis for how he views humans.

    Are the Engineers gathered for some sort of event in that domed structure or in response to the juggernaut showing up? It would be interesting if the former and David is making a statement ("I'm your God now"!).

    As I said this place is some holy site on some kind of sacred planet if you will. I think those pseudo engineer humanoids are some kind of priests, and they are not the Engineers from the Prometheus. They are not Engineers at all.

    For the 99th time: They are the Engineers and Ridley Scott is doing away with that storyline.

    For the 99th time that's conjecture on your part.


    Is anybody else getting a feeling there might be some Planet of the Apes type scenario going on (the original movie)?

    Think of the "engineers" from Prometheus as humans nearly destroying their own ecosystem/society (no birds, no animals) and the "engineers" we are presented in Covenant as the survivors of this all, who just begun evolving from the ashes of this downfall. The city itself might be a combination of parts of the old culture and new elements build around.

    Thats why when David arrives with the flying saucer (and i bet he is the one in control of that flying scorpion tail too) they are all drawn to the arenaesque plaza, cause they only seen anything like it on murals or heard of it in legends. Thats why they have no defence or anything like it either, or maybe the "have", but none of them is able to control what is left of something like a planetary defense system etc.

    Or maybe they have seen things like that, maybe they even have build temples around it, but now for the first time they actually see one of it flying.

    Passage of time then explains their different look. No longer being a space nation :D and no longer being able to use the biomechanical attachments their bodys began to look less bulky (gravity), thinner (roooids) and they are not that pale anymore either, cause they actually have to leave their house to put food on the table.

    I was thinking the same thing. What we see of the Engineer civilization "today" is the culmination of some sort of catastrophic event from the past that caused the turning on/loss of technology and reverting to a simpler life. I mean, the Engineers as we know them could be the "gods" of this group. Mythical almost. It would explain David's actions. He's dealing with "fallen angels" who retain the potential for past exploits.

    "They don’t deserve to start again, and I’m not going to let them."

    Is that quote confirmed? Would definitely fit.

    There might be more Prometheus to Covenant than one think: if what you assume is true these beings have re-established a condition for their society one could call Paradise-like. But instead of leaving them alone, God is punishing them again for quite literally creating mankind, just like Prometheus is being subjected for eternal punishment.
  8. SpeedyMaxx
    Yeah, I think the Engineers having been cross-bred over the millennia into hybridizing with the species they once seeded is actually an interesting idea worth thinking about or exploring onscreen in a proper cosmic epic story. But knowing Ridley it's something he'd toss off in an interview or a line on the commentary track as we watch David nuke 'em.

    @SpeedyMaxx - I understand how it can be frustrating to read wild theories which don't align with the leaked plot for 'Alien: Covenant', given that that leak is, let's face it, spot on.  Still, you seem to realise that people posting theories is not hurting anyone.  Let them eat cake.

    @CoalescedChaos - I adore your signature by the way.  It's strange how a few abstract shapes can be so recognisable to an 'Alien' fan.

    And so thou shall.

    SpeedyMaxx, consistent combativeness against those who're sharing their thoughts and theories on the future stories of films they love and adore is lame. This is a place for discussion - not to constantly be told "no", "nope", and "not going to happen" because we let our minds wander. Regardless of whether or not you're attempting to save us from "dissatisfaction".

    Just ease up on us a bit. We all share a passion for the same thing.

    this +2.

    Maybe I do. But it gets tiring to see posters jumping to insane and unrealistic conclusions about a movie that's already been well-spoiled. From the wild suppositions about the Engineers to this, it feels like people looking for any excuse to be less dissatisfied with what they've heard.

    You're projecting you're own misgivings about the film and that is exhausting.

    I really wish I had anything left to project. :P This is about what I know to be in it.

    I expect the film to be a lot of fun and do well. It looks amazing and improves on the prior one in many ways already. Creatively I feel disappointed by it. But I've expounded on that already so I won't again. What I will say is it's equally exhausting to hear people willfully avoid the facts we know to be true to avoid honestly engaging with the actual material and what we know it contains. But I'm done talking about it.

    I know what you mean, buddy. It was a stupid thought, and some of mine can get pretty wild.

    And I'm fine with what I've read of the film so far. :)

    Actually the instrument that Walter is using seem to be in line with ones used to investigate like in those NCIS films...

    Secondly there is no scar on his face cause this particular scene obviously takes place before hell breaks loose, and judging by the background it looks like the cryo chamber.

    So what? Walter may not even be in cryo at the beginning of the movie, a la David in Prometheus. He may be checking on the crew. He could be doing literally anything, but the point is there is no evidence of a subplot the likes of which you suggest.

    Have I missed anything.. Remember your spoiler leaks were done before reshoots, and this could very well be a new addition.  ;)

    Do you have evidence to prove other wise in your head??

    Common sense and the fact that there are zero mentions of anything like this in the many detailed spoilers we have on this film.

    We don't know that yet.

    Give me literally any evidence of your theory. By that I mean, something other than "this is a picture of Michael Fassbender in the cryo chamber, maybe he is investigating one of the crew murdering the other" based on nothing but a story you created in your head.

    tell it to you. you keep advocating they're wiped based on....really....nothing but own ideas.

    I am advocating nothing. The Engineers and the new mythology of Prometheus being wiped from the slate of future involvement is the last thing I wanted for this franchise's future. It is also what is happening and we knew that months ago.

    You don't get it. I don't want it, but what I want is irrelevant. It's what's going down.
