Spoilers follow – Explosion seen on location of Alien: Covenant! As filming continues on location in Milford Sound, New Zealand, it would appear effects work is beginning to take place! Several weeks ago we shared the first ever pictures from Alien: Covenant. They were of the construction of some sort of spaceship, possibly the airlock of a vessel of some sort. It would seem that particular construction maybe no more!
The above video comes from a crewmember of one of the tourist sight-seeing cruise ships that operate at Milford Sound. This video comes not long after another tourist spoke of an explosion on location: “Stumbled onto the set for the new ‘Aliens Covenant’ movie here in Milford – they blew up something late last night too.”
Below are some additional close-up images provided by a different tourist.
Here are another series of photos courtesy of silverfernz:
“Filming Alien:Covenant in New Zealand, they blew up the ship today, they spent a month building it and then boom!!”
Thanks to Ikarop and LarsVader for the news of the video.
