    "Was walking Milford Sound the other day and off the beaten path stumbled into the film set of Alien:Covenant. Fortunately I was wearing all black and fit right in with the production crew. Went unnoticed for about an hour, had a free coffee but was asked to leave eventually when they could see 'Ridley Scott stalker' in my eyes."

    That's actually quite funny, gives new meaning to the term "All Blacks".
    He should just have bluffed it out - start ordering people around and pretend like he's in charge.  :laugh:

    QuoteWhen asked if he saw Ridley Scott, he replied: "Only a girl in a lieutenants uniform sorry." Unless they're sticking a traditional ranking system, I'd guess he just means a military-style uniform.

    Probably a civilian uniform with civilian insignia. Like Ripley's uniform.

    There's definitely a similarity in style which is cool but I don't think it's from the Prometheus.

    Here's some more pictures from another tourist and a little comment:

    "Stumbled onto the set for the new 'Aliens Covenant' movie here in Milford - they blew up something late last night too"

    When asked if he saw Ridley Scott, he replied: "Only a girl in a lieutenants uniform sorry." Unless they're sticking a traditional ranking system, I'd guess he just means a military-style uniform.

    Quote from: Sven on Apr 06, 2016, 11:18:41 PMIt's the Prometheus lifeboat where we last left it, except the planet has started to terraform / evolve around it following the release of the genetic accelerant material in the Engineer's pyramid/s.

    It's clearly not the Prometheus lifeboat. Even with just that one section it looks nothing like it.

    Yeah. I doesn't look like Vicker's Suite. I think this is a completely different thing.

    It's the Prometheus lifeboat where we last left it, except the planet has started to terraform / evolve around it following the release of the genetic accelerant material in the Engineer's pyramid/s. So life forms on the planet will have evolved at the same rapid rate as well.

    Someone else is watching the set while whispering "over here... over here..."   ;-)

    ;D ;D ;D

    So, we ll have monumental forest and green and beautiful nature.... but dont forget:

    Behind beauty lies Gigeresque architecture and facilities! :laugh:

    We know (100%) that only outdoor locations are on New Zealand (we shall have aerial scenes! ;)),
    all other scenes will be shoot in Fox studio in Sydney!

    Ooh... that's a nice close-up Corporal!

    This at least makes it clear that the ship is not canted off to the side. The deck is clearly horizontal, so it's not sinking into the water.

    Could most likely be a shuttle, the engines would be too small for a colony ship (unless they are supposed to be maneuvering thrusters) and it's sitting too low to the ground for it to be a large ship.

    Can see some CO2 tanks as well so there will probably be lots of practical smoke & steam effects.

    These latest pictures you're posting really look phenomenal. With the mountains, it could definitely pass for something other worldly. It makes a big change from the baron planet of LV-223.
    It doesn't look otherworldly, to me. It looks like Earth. Why? Because there's plant-life. You want to know what looks not of this Earth? Barren planets.  :D

    Well, the term Paradise indicates it will be a lush planet full of life. It wouldn't be so much of a paradise if it was completely void of any life. It doesn't have to be xenomorphs stalking people in a jungle - I agree, that wouldn't look right and that's more for Predator. That was a big problem with Predators, the jungle just looked something out of Earth. Instead they should have been aiming for something like Avatar style scenery.

    Well, from whose point of view? I'm sure a xenomorph's idea of Paradise is inside a host.

    Semantics aside, I do agree that it being void of life would seem odd. But what if that's the point? I think if they went the AtMoM approach and had a place that was originally pastoral, until things went to pot, that'd be a cool way to go about it. Ruins in the jungle haunted by a sinister presence... or the city of the Old Ones haunted by evil Shoggoths. Good stuff. I mean, Antarctica was originally warmer and had plant life, didn't it? A similar approach with Covenant would be fun. Except, more the ruins-in-the-jungle approach. I'm down with that. Plus, certain Central American gods, like Quetzalcoatl, were steeped in the lore of life, death, and human sacrifice. It kind of fits with the alien lore, from a certain point of view. It certainly reminds me of Prometheus' approach to humans and myth, and I actually kind of liked that.
