Is this a joke? Are they going to cut Alien from the title as well? :)

I can't even imagine how that would work. How is Oram's death explained, or the fate of the remaining crew? How do you edit around the creature in a way that would even make sense?

How...how is that even possible? The movie will be incoherent.

And why?

That cannot be true, the film would have to be a lot shorter than 116mins to cut out the alien.

Q
There's two ways they did this

a. they replaced the Alien with the Neomorph (unlikely)

b. they jump-cut to them leaving right after the android kung-fu (removing Oram's death beforehand, perhaps cutting before he enters the chamber leaving his fate unknown) and jump-cut AGAIN to the ending scene (so basically they assume the crew has left unscathed). That way should be around 20 minutes or so of cut footage

Q
If that happened, did they add any new scenes like the crossing or whatever else that was cut to fill in the scenes without the Alien?

Any particular reason why this was done?

Nail to the coffin. It will damage Covenant box office in China like hell. Why did they censor Alien? Ridiculous. Scenes with Neomorphs are more gore an brutal. And what about final fight with Xeno?

one of the chinese members on here said that in a limited release of prometheus it was severely cut in theaters. .no medpod scene and no fifield and milburn with the hammerpede. .amongst other things. .

no wonder piracy is so big in china. .
