Alien Covenant: Official Collector’s Edition Book To Be Released

Alongside the other books that we have previously reported about that are scheduled for release this year, Titan Books will also be publishing a hardcover Alien Covenant: Official Collector’s Edition. The 96 page Official Collector’s Edition book looks to be a behind-the-scenes book:

“Alien: Covenant Official Souvenir Edition brings you all you need to know about the making of the blockbuster movie, including stunning photography and exclusive concept art, and interviews with cast and crew including Michael Fassbender (Prometheus, 12 Years a Slave), James Franco (127 Hours, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Billy Crudup (Watchmen, Spotlight), and Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Steve Jobs).”

Alien Covenant: Official Collector’s Edition Book is currently scheduled for release on the 23rd of May, alongside Simon Ward’s The Art and Making of Alien: Covenant and Alan Dean Foster’s novelization.

The Alien Covenant: Official Collector’s Edition Book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon (UK and US) for £15/$20.

The Alien Covenant: Official Collector's Edition Book will feature interviews with various cast members, including Michael Fassbender.  Alien Covenant: Official Collector's Edition Book To Be Released

The Alien Covenant: Official Collector’s Edition Book will feature interviews with various cast members, including Michael Fassbender.

The production page over on Amazon also comes with a new synopsis of Alien: Covenant and confirms James Franco’s involvement with the film (as we exclusively revealed last year):

When a shipload of human colonists investigates an apparently habitable planet, they have no idea of the horror they are about to discover. But the biggest danger may perhaps come from a more unexpected source.”

    if you observe the way David talks to the crew , I've noticed their questions lack definition and are asked in a nonchalant way

    he answers them in the same way and never really gives any definitive answers , like he knows that because their questions lack specificity he answers in the same way , vague and without specifics .

    he is a very sneaky robot

    Too easy. And David was the bad guy in Prometheus.(to the general public) So thats wat people expect.

    He's not a typical bad guy, though.  If you look at the other human villains of the series, their motivations are pretty clear.  However, with David you don't know.  Like the question if he has consciousness that Ridley mentioned.

    Well, yes.  Basically this.  For most of 'PROMETHEUS' running time, David 8's actions were carried out under the instructions of Weyland.   It will be interesting to see how this machine interprets 'freedom' now that it has.   After all, Weyland assuredly states that David has no soul. 

    Can a machine capable of more than follow instructions truly understand what Freedom actually means? 

    This will be a very interesting movie.  No doubt Sir Scott is out to investigate what it means to be a free thinking Human Being vs Intelligent Machine with an agenda.  Too awesome. 

    As for the book itself, 96 pages may seem a little light - but for a lavish full colour production that's being offered any more will drive the cost up.  Call it a 'Collectors Edition' if you like.  It's just marketing hype.  Titan will want to sell boatloads of the book.  Nonetheless, I'm still looking forward to adding this to my library.  I just wish publisher's would stop badging print copies with such superfluous content across covers like this.   

    Given time, almost anything officially released in print form becomes a Collector's item.

    I mean, i'd love to think the Engineers might show up in the end and really make a nightmare mind-f*ck out of the situation. Like waking up the colonists just to experiment on them... But we'd never see a film like that made by the mainstream. It'll likely be David pulling a Wrath of Khan type of scenario.

    Then again... Franco could be, or maybe Shaw turns up and gives birth to Newt because she kissed Hicks in another dimension.

    Fck knows.

    The biggest danger has to be David.  The real villain of the film.

    Yeah, I'm thinking the same. Also nice to see Franco mentioned in the synopsis. I think that's the first real confirmation outside of Franco's surprise in the interviews.  :)

    This has actually been on Amazon for a few weeks now. I was talking about this book to someone on a Twitter a few weeks back and I've no idea why I never posted it.  :laugh: I've shared it now.

    Prequel novel sounds fantastic.  So long as it picks up straight after Prometheus.  I'll read a sequel novel if it's a prequel to the next film after A:C.
