Last Signs of Life – New Alien: Covenant Short Film!

In celebration of the 2 year anniversary of Alien: Covenant’s DVD release in America, 20th Century Fox has teamed up with YouTube Space LA to release a brand new Alien short in which a Weyland-Yutani employee returns to Paradise to investigate David’s lab!

To celebrate the two-year anniversary of the Alien: Covenant DVD release, we wanted to share a little fun we had thanks to a partnership with YouTube Space LA, who helped recreate David’s Lab from the film’s set.

Has someone received David’s transmission from the Advent marketing short? Or has the crew of the Covenant turned around? What do you think? Let us know what you think of Last Signs of Life down below!

    Enjoyed it somewhat as badly want the prequels completed
    But would of been more interesting if man was an Android
    If this short is ridiculously canon it messes things up but if it’s not, kind of tarnishes the whole exercise as a throwaway we dont give a damn, just buy the Blu-ray

    Seriously though....what is the point of this for a 2 year old movie???

    Trust me I’m appreciative of the content and i actually liked this video. However i fail to see the point.

    It appears that the company wanted to know more about the lab after David's report at the end of Alien:Covenant. Yet again, another careless human who did not know what he was dealing with. He should have at least one Colonial Marine standing nearby to incinerate the egg. Great short film. Directors like these are true artists.

    I don't understand why people keep thinking that David did not create the Xeno... 
    Aside from it being a dumb idea on multiple levels, there's a good amount of evidence to suggest he didn't invent it.

    We may not lile something okay, I have no problem with that.
    But I don't understand why they do everything to find another solution. When the film shows something which is not possible otherwise, I don't understand people who absolutely want to change the film and what it shows...
    When you really look at the details and context (both in Covenant and in the franchise as a whole) it's not that cut-and-dry; at the risk of derailing the thread, I'd be happy to keep talking with you about it via PMs or something. :)

    Shame about what happened with The Predator. I'm a huge fan of The Nice Guys and Iron Man 3.
    If you like Shane Black, check out 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' and 'The Long Kiss Goodnight'.

    It's pretty clear cut. David created the xenomorph. Xenomorph isn't the deacon. The deacon existed before, and the engineers knew of it, even worshipped it. Xenomorph has human characteristics that David fused into the pathogen. I imagine the next step is fusing machine qualities into the xenomorph. I'm assuming Awakening was supposed to be David completing the bio-mechanical beast and attempting to fuse himself into it so as to become the devil himself.

    Can anyone make out the timestamps on the computer-filming sections? Wanna know where to put this in my timeline

    I was just trying to do the same.  Looks to me like:
    POST DATE   2039 5/5/17

    I assume that 17 is the year, since 2117 would make sense.

    I’m not even positive that’s a 17 though.  Kinda wondering if they intentionally made it too small to make out so us dorks wouldn’t latch onto it.  :P
    Ta!

    I'm positive it's a 17 but can't make out the rest.  Having too many numbers makes it deliberately ambiguous.  Kinda like that 'galactic position' stuff in Covenant.

    Another questionable part was a read-out saying 'Weyland Industries'.

    Cool video I guess it is in order to say. I won't even enter it is about time we see a video about David's laboratory. But I cannot be alone. How many of you have ever thought of the jockeys being some kind of nanobot race, and the chair some sorta species decoder?

    Requiem exists. IMHO Covenant is far from the worst Alien film. 4th favorite for me.

    Same.

    Alien
    Aliens/Alien 3
    Alien: Covenant

    Prometheus and Resurrection is where it gets tricky. I don't dislike either film, in fact I quite admire both of them in their ambition and concepts and they're both damn pretty movies as well, but they both have their pretty distinct problems as well. Depending on my mood their placement can flip flop, but they're always the bottom two.

    With me it competes with Alien3 for being third best, and the reason is both films are almost peas in a pod - both are nihilistic in tone and have dark endings. Prometheus is fourth for me. While Resurrection...yea...doesn't exist :D

    Some at the Blu-ray.com are asking why did Disnox even bother doing something like this if Covenant failed at the box office and its reviled by the fans, now especially after they wiped out Fox's slate of films. Some suspect it did that well in-home media and wanting to celebrate it by doing this short while others bless their hearts, suspect, they did the short to get a gist of the fandom after two years, especially to see if the audience has warmed up to it. Seeing some of the responses in social media, seems some are warming up to it which is surprising.  Though, at this junction, from what I see, for us Prequel fans, we have to get used to only having Prometheus and Covenant, and make up our final film on our minds.

    Because a good chunk of us didn't really like that angle and it's wishful thinking on our part that they steer away from it.

    Given how unpopular it is and the amount of wiggle room they left, I think chances are not too bad. If they bring up the creatures origin again at all, or even make something in the foreseeable future that is.
