Alien Covenant Ultra HD Steelbook Coming Soon

Hot on the heels of Alien Covenant’s release, we have the first details of what various media releases are in store for us in a few months time. We’re looking at a August/September release for the Alien Covenant sets. We obviously have the standard DVD, Blu-Ray and UHD Alien Covenant releases with some generic artwork so I won’t bore you with those.

What we do have is an Alien Covenant 4K Ultra HD Steelbook featuring some very snazzy artwork of the embryonic stage of the Neomorph. Inside of the Steelbook, we have the Giger-esque picture showing numerous Xenomorphs interlocked with human beings. This set is exclusive to Best Buy in the US for $24.99 and HMV in the UK for £22.99.

IGN also happen to have a video of an exclusive motion graphic version of the Alien Covenant Steelbook cover. I’m not entirely sure where this release is going to be found or even how it works. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a media release with a motion cover before. But it looks very cool nonetheless.

 

Also coming soon is a Blu-Ray boxset featuring all six Alien films including Prometheus and Alien Covenant. The artwork is supposed to show the evolution of the Xenomorphs throughout each film. On the left is the regular boxset while the right picture is the Steelbook version.

You can preorder the regular DVD, Blu-Ray, and 4K versions from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com. Hopefully, we’ll have an announcement on the special features soon and I do suspect we’ll see 4K versions of the other Alien films within the next year or so.

    Oh no! No CDL is VERY sad! I look just as forward to his awesome 3+ hour documentaries as the
    actual films themselves, I wonder WHY he is not involved?

    And I hope to God Ridley does a director's cut of COVENANT... Not a bunch of outtakes like with
    PROMETHEUS but an actual new cut.

    No. Just confirmed on Twitter that he wasn't doing either this or Blade Runner.

    Did he do the extras for Blade Runner the final cut ?

    He did the Blade Runner Final Cut itself (in collaboration with Scott). He was also the producer of the Dangerous Days documentary and all the other bonus features.

    Sorry for those not in the blu-ray/home video know but who is this "CDL" and why is it sad he's not working on the BR Covenant or Blade Runner home video releases?

    Cdl = Charles de Lauzirika. He did the making-of documentaries and extras for the Alien Quadrilogy/Anthology as well as the Furious Gods documentary for Prometheus. He is also the man behind the Alien 3: Assembly Cut. It's sad because his work is incredibly in-depth. detailed, interesting and thorough. It was done with real passion for the subject.

    Makes total sense to do a new cut or an alternate one to watch alongside the original,maybe more new cuts of Alien,get rid of Lambert's trainers for god's sakes,AC will have tons of deleted stuff I bet.

    The Alien Covenant Steel book looks nice. The alien anthology set is not worth it. They do this every time a new alien film comes out. In a couple of years a new alien film will be released, thus a new box set will feature that film. Best deal was the exclusive alien anthology set that came with the light up egg.

    The COVENANT Steelbook looks great but the Cover Art on the 6 film boxed set needs a lot of work. Here's hoping that by 'PLACEHOLDER' they mean 'PLACEHOLDER.'

    TBH the only thing that could entice me to buy this 6 film boxed set is if there is some crazy amount of new Special Features or an extended cut of PROMETHEUS and/or COVENANT. Otherwise I'll wait for the trilogy to wrap up before buying an all inclusive set.

    This series has always delievered the goods for the Home Releases. Whats taking so long for an extended cut of Prometheus Scotty!? Same goes for Covenant. We can tell you cut alot out... Psh.
