Crew Messages – New Alien: Covenant Marketing Campaign

We’re each allowed one transmission back to Earth,” says Daniels in the first of what seems to be a series of new Alien: Covenant marketing videos. First up we have Katherine Waterston as Daniels and second is Billy Crudup as Oram.

The videos are framed as being recorded messages by the crew of the Covenant intended for a recipient back on Earth. They’re also intercut with “found-footage” from the crew’s shoulder mounted GoPros that we have seen in previous footage and production stills.

A recent TV spot aired during the NBA featured some of the footage from the Daniels video and a second TV spot seemed to include footage from a Tennessee-themed crew message so there’s likely several more of these Crew Messages on the way! We’ll keep this post updated with new videos so keep checking back in for more!

    Very cool. I hope they don't overuse it (if they us it at all), but the shoulder cam stuff is great.

    A part of me kind of hopes they take the shoulder cam footage and make an alternate cut of the film with just that footage as a  Blu-Ray extra.

    well, i find it hard to believe that we get shoulder cams so prominently placed and visible in the movie on the (main) characters, and then not getting used at all? hell no. There will be shoulder cam footage in the movie without a doubt.

    but i must say, the idea to see the movie solely through shoulder cam footage would be fantastic as en extra

    So since we know Tennessee made one, should we expect messages for all the crew members (aside from Walter)?

    I expect so. I'm fairly sure Franco filmed more footage from promo but we've not seen any more.

    I'd love it. I expect it'd be a bit too much though. But I'd love it (in case anyone working on home release is reading this)!

    The Jockey arms look a lot longer and less humanoid than they appeared in Prometheus, no?

    yeah i liked this gopro-style footage. Reminded me also a bit of Cloverfield, too.

    Nice mention of the Blair Witch, i've always imagined how amazing a very tense and suspenseful blair-witch style Alien movie would be.
    Not like cloverfield. The above reminded me of it, but honestly, i hated how they executed that.

    On the run, hide and battle, underprepared, unarmed, and in the unknown on an abandoned alien space station that has an alien (not neccesarily a xenomorph) aboard, filmed from a gopro-like camera mounted to their suits which they can't take off because the suit contains a system to feed them oxygen through a mouthpiece of sorts would be amazing.

    All of the found footage in Aliens, Alien and Prometheus is used sparingly to illustrate the perspective of the characters at the "base," ie Ash, Gorman, Janek. It's never used as found footage for its own sake.

    Quote from: SpeedyMaxx on Apr 17, 2017, 05:07:14 PMI think any substantial use of these in the final film would have people crying "Blair Witch" and bitching up a storm. I love it, though.

    That's not the problem. Blair Witch is all found footage. Heavy use of found footage style shots mixed with the very steady shots Ridley is known for ( and that we've seen all over the trailers so far ) would probably not mix well at all. We might get a couple of shots as we did in Alien/Prometheus, but I can't see more than that happening. Visually it would be very distracting.

    I actually love the found footage from the planet. I wish it could be incorporated into the film (who knows, maybe it is) but I know purists would crucify Ridley for using it.

    Why would "purists crucify" Scott for using found footage style video when he used it in both Alien and Prometheus?  ???

    There's the grainy video links seen sporadically in the first two movies and then there's this, which much more closely resembles the found footage trend we've seen over the last twenty years. I think any substantial use of these in the final film would have people crying "Blair Witch" and bitching up a storm. I love it, though.

    I think the marketing campaign for this has been better than Prometheus. Not that I hated the pre-release material for Prometheus, but it wasn't very exciting.

    I'd like to see some of the point of view footage put on the dvd/bluray release of the film.

    These are really cringeworthy, IMO. Especially the Billy Crudup one. He seems hostile and he only reads two lines from a script? Sosososososo bad.

    Oram is evidently a stilted sort of intellectual unused to a leadership role or to social cues. He's also religious and insecure. I think it makes sense.
    It makes sense as a scene immediately following e viral where he wanted to make a speech. The piece of paper is the speech. But that doesn't account for Crudup's awful delivery and the brevity of the viral compared to the other one. Both of these are halfassed. Scott is repeating himself so much he ran out of Alien stuff and now he's cribbing from The Martian. It's like the advertising wants me to stay away.
