Leaked Behind-the-Scenes Stills from Alien: Covenant

A mysterious benefactor with a friend who worked on Alien: Covenant appeared in the night to share an album of behind-the-scene stills taken from the set of Alien: Covenant.

These stills show off more of David’s laboratory and creatures but there’s also one particular image that is a major spoiler (I’ll place this towards the end) as to the fate of a certain character.

    He's gonna go nuts if there's viable embryos on the covenant.

    One review I read hinted at something along these lines...

    dark comedy and self-parody

    BETTER NOT BE. Someone please!

    Can anyone confirm this movie is not a self parody? Really concerned with what someone said about the tone being like alien resurrection and bordering comedic.

    Having seen it a few hours ago, I can see the point they are making. It's certainly not an intentional parody, but there are probably one too many scenes/tropes that have been used in at least three other films in the franchise.

    From watching the film, all I remember of Shaw is..
    Spoiler
    Walter finding her body on the table, with her chest/abdomen wide open. I don't remember anything attached to her head, but her head/face was intact. Clearly dead.

    The only other time we see her, was a drawing of her in a similar state in one of David's sketches that Daniels finds.

    Just wanted to add something to this thread regarding Shaw from Alien Covenant, based on what I recall seeing:

    Spoiler
    While much of the first description given is mostly correct, from what I remember Shaw DOES have something attached to the sides of her head and neck. Like bones but oddly shaped, very different from humans, but nothing boimechanical. It's not the same as in the leaked picture, Shaw has more hair, her eyes were definitely closed and she was dead, plus it also looked like she is lying on a headrest of bones and possibly flesh, which may or may not be attached to her, but I couldn't tell. Then the camera then pans down to reveal her torso that's been pulled wide open as also mentioned earlier. Also, the drop shot with the alien climbing down a wall towards its next victim, with someone lying on a slab nearby and chest pulled wide open, this is Shaw as well and not an Engineer as some have thought.

    OK Guys I just got back from seeing the film and viewed these pics now - so it's really fresh in my mind.

    Regarding Shaw:

    Spoiler
    I am 99% certain what we see in the film is different, her head looks almost normal and she has all her big red hair, her torso though is completely open. Put it this way when I saw the image in this post I was like, why didn't they use that prop in the movie.  She also 100% had her eyes closed, because I remember thinking she might be alive and open them - which would have been an amazing scene

    thank you for support! Well, guys, who's the troll here?

    They take the one compelling character-Shaw,keep the evil f**king robot I wish Vicker had yoked his cord,& we get doughy lego faced KW&Pineapple Express!!f**k THIS MOVIE NOW&FOREVER!!!Whoever's behind this has screwed the pooch!!!!!!Some people don't when to stop....

    they should have done this to somebody else than Shaw. what the fuzz man.

    Why not have waterston instead? ah , because she's supposed to be this movies 'ripley' offcourse. cheap shot, really.
    but why on earth not add some other character, that has been through less? some 'replaceable' female character that runs into david. yeah, too short of time.

    but then how about the covenant finding the distress signal from somebody else, and that david has sent a signal to earth to send someone before, and that happened just moments before covenant's trip so they don't know much about that but simply recieve a distress signal.

    you could have divert it just as much, and save Shaw for some other role, where she can get a little redemption. It doesn't need to be 'deeply sad' to work. It also would have opened for an interesting additional movie for the ship that went to david's message to send meat before.

    david's a real bad, evil motherf****er. very dark sh*t.

    then again, we can't say Shaw doesn't want this for herself for whatever reason or reasoning happenening during the time spent there.
    on the other hand then, we aren't guaranteed something bad doesn't happen to shaw. does SHE get infected accidentally - her own fault?
    does she get facehugged? why did the juggernaut crash, and what happened to her?

    did she get gravely wounded? was she undoubtedly going to die, but did david know or tell her he can 'save her' 'at a cost' ? did he administer the stuff to save her thus?

    she looks rather dead on that HBO bookpage, and then we see the prop/head with the stuff aside the heads just like the amazing concept art, so i'll assume that's later? though imho what i find odd is that the hbo page picture looks like she's missing her lower jaw, and theres something weird there, so i find it odd that the prop then has a complete jaw whilst looking more advanced and 'further developed' ?

    either way she's scr*wed. here's hoping they'll have a way to bring it in an acceptable, satisfying way.
    i don't want this sadeness on this great character.

    if david does it delibaretly because he's evil, then he's reaaaaaly a b*stard thinking about looking at the prologue piece.

    They can just clone her once Wal-Mart (who buys out Wetland-Yutani before the events of Alien Resurrection ) sends a ship hundreds of years later and finds some Shaw DNA frozen in a capsule by David.

    Because if what you guys are saying about Covenant having a comedic tone to it is true, then to hell with it. That shit is one of my chief complaints of Alien: Resurrection. This franchise won't just be overcooked but rather overcooked, digested and violently shat all over the walls of 20th Century Fox.

    I'd like to ask other people who saw Covenant what they think about this: in all reviews/reactions, no matter positive or negative, I've never met a mention about the fact that the film transforms from serious tone into dark comedy and self-parody in the second half of the second act - parts of the third act. There are some scenes, where Ridley clearly makes fun of Alien and these scenes were very much WTF moments and audience reactions at my screening were loudly the same. It reminded me of Alien: Ressurection, but Jean uses his French sense of humor and Ridley uses his own. I wasn't happy with these tone changes and many people at my screening too. I expected a serious movie which makes Alien scary and serious again, but what I saw wasn't what reviews/Ridley/marketing promised. But critics seem to be okay with it or they just don't care.
    aha!
    For example, the scene of the birth of an alien
    spoiler

    Its David
    and its Alien
    And this is Me when I watched this scene

    Spoiler
    I thought her eyes were shut when we saw her in the film, then it pans down to her torso which was spread open, it was disgusting. I had a feeling that was her outcome but couldn't believe it when I saw it. So sad actually. F*ck David.

    Spoiler
    I found the scene to be very effective. It was heartbreaking. It would've had a stronger impact though if they had left in the footage from the prologue. It would've been great to see her alive in the film before the big reveal.

    The BTS photo of Shaw is definitely real, but I do think that the version seen in the film looks a little bit more like Noomi Rapace though. This one seems to lack the hair. We don't know when this photo was taken so it's quite possible it was tweaked further during filming. In the finished version, the hairdo is more distinctive and CLEARLY Shaw and I don't recall the eyes being open. I could've sworn they were closed. As Hicks said, the shot is brief. So I will definitely be watching this scene a lot closer when I see it again the 18th.
    Absolutely agree! But it seems to me that her eyes were open
  15. Huggs
    The sketch was far more gruesome than what is shown here, and also resembled the actual character much more closely. I'm starting to wonder if the film has been toned down or altered for certain markets. Or possibly, additional/different material held back before widespread release. That would definitely be a surprise twist.

    Yep, the red corridor shot isn't in the film.

    Shaw's body is found by Walter and looks the same as the BTS image.

    I did not write about the scene in the red corridor. I wrote about the scene of an alien attack on two people

    HBO posted a short vid on youtube. The sketch shown near the end looks...different from what we see here. I won't get into specifics, but there is a stark difference from the nose down. What gives? Is this not what we see in the movie then?
    It's an album of sketches.

    Shaw's face will not be so damaged

    I noticed this thread and decided to register and clarify some things. Janus is correct about
    Spoiler
    Shaw's face in close-up frame in the movie. Her face in that close-up was normal, without tubes and alien stuff like in the pic in this thread.
    [close]
    I also want to notice that I saw the movie a few days ago on early screening on Kiev's Comic Con. While reading some reviews after watching the movie, I was surprised to see many conflicting descriptions and opinions about the movie, like me and my audience saw a very different movie from the one english/american press saw. It's really strange.
  20. MrPotato
    Ok, i can confirm that Janus watched the movie. The question he's trying to ask you

    Spoiler
    is that leaked bts photo of Shaw isn't her real image in the movie. She's there dead without all this stuff around her head, just dead body.

    Corporal Hicks, Whos_Nick, did you watching the movie in the US? There are may be a different versions of the movie with less creepy shots of Shaw for releasing on international markets to fit in a local parental raiting system.
    Spoiler
    We saw the kiss of androids

    . I doubt that in our country there are special requirements for films. I do not live in China
  22. Huggs
    I figured that's what happened to her. I wonder what she looked before dissection? Looks a bit like the stuff from independence day. Thought it was Faris there for a minute when I first saw her, but she got cooked. So what did he do, harvest her eggs? He's gonna go nuts if there's viable embryos on the covenant.
  23. tuskhaus
    Is there any confirmation of the relief sculpture seen on the movie poster being in the film at all? Maybe during the Hall of Heads scenes or something? I fear the poster may mean nothing in terms of story :/
  24. Janus
    Here are a few spoilers, for confirmation
    Spoiler
    Sergeant Lope fought with a facehugger during alien's jump
    The ship returned to David, Lope and Daniels.
    [close]
    Sorry, about Daniels
    Spoiler
    I was mistaken, she found an album with sketches. Body Shaw found Walter. Shaw had a nominal face

    The alien's leap was in the film. The body on the table as in the trailer is seen badly.
    Spoiler
    In the movies there was a scene where Daniels came close to the body. The head of Shaw was ordinary, human. It was clearly visible
    [close]
    Then why do the other people who've seen the film all say that the shot of the Xeno jumping around is not in the film?

    And Shaw's face is clearly visible in the BTS shot, isn't it?

    He's trolling.  The scene is obviously in the movie and they have shown the closeup shot of her now.  He's factually incorrect and either never saw the movie (most likely) or is lying.
