Alien: Covenant Audi Lunar Quattro Short

20th Century Fox and Audi have just released a fun little video with the Lunar Quattro rover used during the filming of Alien: Covenant. The new short shows the lunar quattro activating having detected an unidentified lifeform in the terraforming bay aboard the Covenant…

“Audi presents a suspenseful short film featuring the Audi lunar quattro as an integral part of the Alien: Covenant colonization mission. Besides providing exploration and research support, it also patrols the ship for unseen dangers. One night, an unidentified presence in the ship’s Terraforming Bay prompts it to investigate what might be lurking in the dark.

Exploring the unknown. The Audi lunar quattro. With intelligent technologies.”

The lunar quattro a genuine lunar rover concept that is the product of Audi and The Part-Time Scientist’s participation in Google’s Lunar XPRIZE (GLXP) competition. In addition to the short, Audi has also shared some pictures of the lunar quattro on location at Milford Sound and on set in the terraforming bay on their website.

    The little rover itself is probably in the film. Saw it a couple of times going down the dropship ramp in the trailers and tv spots.

    They're really going all out with the product placement in Covenant.  :laugh:

    We've had Gillette, AMD and now Audi. Were there any others?

    Ridley has signed up Durex for the follow up to Covenant, mainly for the scenes after the colonists awake from cryo...

    Spaceship engineer: So, for mapping of the colonists' new planet I think we should equip the Covenant with PUPS. Those flying ball things that can build up a 3D map of an environment and detect toxins and lifeforms, amongst other things.
    Company executive: No, sounds like a terrible idea. A little robot on wheels can do that in only a matter of months.
    Spaceship engineer: Well, it's your call, but what if there's long grass? Or a wheat field or something?
    Company executive: It can drive up on a hill, stupid!
    Spaceship engineer: ...and the Covenant should have full interior coverage CCTV.
    Company executive: Why? Just put a few cameras here and there. What you need is something to patrol the ship for unseen dangers.
    Spaceship engineer: OK, you have a Walter android on board.
    Company executive: No! Walter will be busy enough watching old movies and styling his hair. These are unseen dangers. Right then, the little robot on wheels. Ideal to find things lurking in the dark; in which case it had better be solar powered. Any questions?

    Do you like Aliens?  Buy an Alien Covenant ticket. Summaries this too.

    It's a cool commercial. 
    It's neat, cause I drive an Audi and I love the Alien Universe. 
    Two of my favourite things. :)

    not going to do the math because that's above impossible.

    i seriously doubt that 7 year mark. impossible. Tennessee in his vid stated he can't wait to see his 'baby brother' old, bald, and having kids. 7 years is nothing. no way in life. makes no sense. huge continuity problem there.

    You are overstating things a bit. We have basically no knowledge of Tennessee's younger brother beyond Tennessee giving him shit in a humorous way in a personal message, it doesn't need to be taken so literally as though Tennessee's brother is a literal child or teenager (he doesn't talk to him like one). Tennessee also mentions his brother already has kids - they would simply be older.

    That was really fun. More frightening than the entire Prometheus movie. I really enjoyed this clip. Reminds me of the "double signal" scene from the Novelization of the first film.
