Alien Romulus Full Trailer Released!

Almost as if in celebration of the future anniversary of the Alien’s birth aboard the Nostromo in 98 years, on June 4th 2122, 20th Century Studios has dropped the much anticipated full trailer for Fede Alvarez’s Alien: Romulus!

“Alien: Romulus” takes the phenomenally successful “Alien” franchise back to its roots: While scavenging the deep ends of a derelict space station, a group of young space colonizers come face to face with the most terrifying life form in the universe. The film stars Cailee Spaeny (“Civil War”), David Jonsson (“Agatha Christie’s Murder is Easy”), Archie Renaux (“Shadow and Bone”), Isabela Merced (“The Last of Us”), Spike Fearn (“Aftersun”), Aileen Wu. Fede Alvarez (“Evil Dead,” “Don’t Breathe”) directs from a screenplay he wrote with frequent collaborator Rodo Sayagues (“Don’t Breathe 2”) based on characters created by Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett. “Alien: Romulus” is produced by Ridley Scott (“Napoleon”), who directed the original “Alien” and produced and directed the series’ entries “Prometheus” and “Alien: Covenant,” Michael Pruss (“Boston Strangler”), and Walter Hill (“Alien”), with Fede Alvarez, Elizabeth Cantillon (“Charlie’s Angels”), Brent O’Connor (“Bullet Train”), and Tom Moran (“Unstoppable”) serving as executive producers.

    @Sabres21768 I don't wanna speak for Mike but:

    Quote from: Mike's Monsters on Jun 05, 2024, 08:24:29 AMJust so folks know, I'm not stoked on being tagged to be summoned like a Pokémon to answer every question and theory. I know and am aware I've opened this box on myself by sharing that I've seen the film, but I've stated that I won't be giving detailed information or spoilers. I'll share what I can, when I feel like stepping in, but not about every little detail.

    Don't take it personally if I don't respond your DMs or tags. I simply can't keep up, nor want to give out all the info.
  2. Sabres21768
    This question is for Mike's Monsters.

    Is there a reason the Alien isn't closer to Rain in the final clip from the trailer?
    It looks like there's something else going on there.

    If you can't say anything, I understand.
  3. Mike’s Monsters
    It helps them and their scoops look more official if they don't disclose that it is AI. Much like a lot of YouTubers these days too. It tells me they are lazy, and or don't have the skills or patience to try to make something of their own. Which tells me a lot about their content as well.

    There are about 2, maybe 3 quick shots in the trailer that are from the climax.

    Quote from: BigDaddyJohn on Jun 05, 2024, 04:23:44 PMIn the very first shot of the atmospheric processor, there are letters written on it but I cannot read the full thing. Maybe the name of the town/station they live in ?
    I remember seeing some artwork somewhere that said Jackson Station I believe, but I need to try and find that again.

    I think the name "Jackson" originally came from that VScooper guy on Twitter. If it was him, I'd be inclined to believe it, as he's proven recently that he's had real info he was drawing from.
    Yes, I found the Twitter/X post from VScooper.  This was the piece of artwork he shared in that original post. https://x.com/thevscooper/status/1776354122259689820?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1776354122259689820%7Ctwgr%5E22ffee631c51232d4ac897e639b85b68fda956a5%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.avpgalaxy.net%2Fforum%2Findex.php%3Ftopic%3D66283.1575

    The artwork is AI generated and not a good representation of what's seen in the film by the way.
    I really wish when people made these kind of posts that they had to include a disclaimer that said something like, "This artwork is generated by artificial intelligence tools and is not accurate of what is in the final film".  I'm so tired of seeing AI used for clickbait like this and just AI generated images in general.

    that the main alien we see in the trailer is created on the station, and is not born from Wu's character Kay. So if her chestburster gets to grow, there'll be at least two adult aliens + the hybrid one.

    Spoiler
    Incorrect. It is from the burster. Don't believe I said that it wasn't from a chestburster.

    I've been a bit hasty for that conclusion, thanks for the correction.

    Quote from: Jigsaw85 on Jun 05, 2024, 05:27:21 PMThe final shot of the trailer with Rain and the Alien looks like the shot from Alien 3 but more importantly it looks like the Alien is resisting the vacuum of space. The Alien is going to get pulled out of an airlock while rain holds on for dear life. Obvious Aliens reference. Only this time I hope it isn't the climax. The movie looks great, but 'memberberries' is the right word for it.

    idk it's like barely a reference to that Alien3 shot. Not even framed the same and is clearly two different circumstances to the scene itself. Didn't find it obnoxious in the least. Are we gonna cry "Alien3 memberberries" every time a Alien gets near someone's face and snarls? You know, as something they tend to do?

    I'm truly not trying to be antagonistic, and I'm sorry if I'm coming across that way. I'm just getting annoyed that any little similarity is being nitpicked as "ugh, f***ckin memberberries" and people are using it to write off the film entirely despite all the new and good looking things about it.
  9. GrimmVision
    When do track listings of scores/soundtracks typically leak? :D  The Alien scores are always a favorite aspect of the movies for me. I listen to them often and I can't wait to hear what Wallfisch brings to the table.

    the little claw arm at 1:43. Could that be the small arm on the chest wall of a queen. You can see a large tail in the background at 1:43 also. Please comment
    I definitely don't think it's a queen.  I just think it's an Alien "hatching" and unfolding it's hand.  Love the practical effects in this!  If you haven't already, I'd recommend watching Mike's recent Youtube video on his YouTube channel (Mike's Monsters).

    A scene I would like to see in the film and it might very well be are video logs of all the experiments that have been done and one chaotic one, much like that in Event Horizon that Callie, Andy stumble upon will they're in that lab. Would add some depth and commentary to what has been taking place. I'm sure there would be an SOS video with a few survivors as well.

    Quote from: Cosmic Incubation on Jun 05, 2024, 04:02:46 PMI feel there's a bit of overexaggerating the "memberberries" levels in here.

    Not that I don't sympathize with some concerns, but a lot of what we've seen just seems like simple visual parallels and callbacks rather than some Star Wars level obnoxious 1 to 1 reference being thrown in our face. 

    Hicks said it pretty well here:

    Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Jun 05, 2024, 09:17:56 AMthere's a balance over the visual references - a balance between visual/world-building continuity and what's just blatant re-doing a screen.

    The only thing that's come off to me as a tad on the nose is that still recreating the shot of Ripley and Hicks with the rifle. Everything else just seems like pretty tastefully incorporated hallmarks that feel natural to the series and world of Alien. But will have to see how it's done in the full film ofc.

    Facehuggers hitting people's faces in this one does not automatically lead to chestbursters, like I said earlier, this isn't Covenant.

    I have my reaction and breakdown up now with a little more details that I think some haven't picked up on yet.

    When did you say that? I think some of us may asked you about that and you said you couldn't answer it. But I am glad to know that now so thank you.

    I mentioned it a page or two before this post you've responded to. It likely got lost in the many pages of this thread and easy to miss. You can refer to my post history to see what I've said.

    Ah ok, thank you, I will have a dig around. I have to say that is a relief that they its not going to be Covenant life-cycle.

  18. The Cruentus
    There is a lot of memberberries here. I think I can understand why though. Ridley deviated so far from what Alien was with his prequels that in order to bring back jaded fans, they had to make a show of being like the first two movies.
  19. The Cruentus
    Quote from: Jigsaw85 on Jun 05, 2024, 03:25:21 PMIn one shot Merced is in the room with Wu while she's getting chest-bursted. Another shot she's screaming, looking down on someone, possibly wu. And then there's a shot of the Alien standing up behind her. Is this all in the same scene? Did the Alien grow into Adult size in seconds?

    It is Wu's character that is being cradled and judginh by the blood splattered on Merced's face and clothes, Wu's character is dead and the chestburster either free or maybe killed (we have to and see on that)

    Unfortunately I wouldn't put it past them to make the life-cycle fast like in covenant which is just stupid.

    Quote from: Rankles75 on Jun 05, 2024, 03:35:07 PMFinding a way to have a realistic amount of time pass between a chestburster emerging and it becoming a full grown adult is always one of the challenges for an Alien movie (likewise the time between impregnation and chestbursting), but I certainly hope that isn't the case.

    The first few movies at least made it seem like it was hours, if not a day or more.  Still pushing plausibilty but it is atleast far more better than it growing in seconds.

    Apparently there's gonna be links to Covenant, so yay. I hope they're substantial.

    Links, for sure. We can see what looks to be one of them at 0:35 in the trailer. But what I meant was, a direct followup to those story threads with Ridley at the helm, and following David et al.

    :'( Someday, friend. We'll get ours!

    Fingers crossed that the rumored Ridley Scott series is A.) Real, and B.) This!

    In the meantime, though, I am all aboard the Romulus hype train.

    Not saying anyone has to like it of course, but Fede Álvarez is pretty much through and through a slasher guy. I figured we'd be getting something in that mode from the day he was announced as director. I was incredibly bitter about the project on day one based partially on that assumption (and also based on us getting this instead of a Covenant followup, and based on Disney eating Fox and further monopolizing the industry, and based on the studio relegating Prey and this to streaming releases at the time) as I'm sure many of you recall, despite having since really warmed up to the project. But this is always the kind of movie this was going to be – for better or worse – because this is the kind of movie that he makes. This is exactly why he was hired.

    Quote from: SkyStreak on Jun 05, 2024, 10:35:41 AMWhy do people keep going on and on about how young the cast is? 

    Most of the Marines in Aliens were about 30.  The cast here ranges from 23 to 31. 

    Not a drastic difference really...

    Physiological age is one thing, how they actually looked and acted is quite different.

    I agree, I'm only getting gravitas from Spaney and Jonsson right now. The others are coming across like AVP fodder. I kinda get the vibe Fede gets off on, but again, this isn't teen slasher trash, it's sophisticated sci-fi.

    Some of the visuals looks superb...it would be a shame for it to be undermined by girly screams and faux-cockney accents.

    There wasn't girly screams in Alien or Aliens ?

    Lambert's screams aren't from the Guidlford School of Musical Theatre. We witness the visceral terror of a woman succumbing to an unthinkable nightmare. Only a genius performer can dig that deep into such primal emotions. Ripley doesn't scream - she hyperventilates but stays in control. Newt is a child but has an authenticity about her. Other than Spaney and Jonsson (so far) I'm getting "I Know What You Did Last Summer" vibes from the performances.

    Nothing wrong with "I know what you did last summer," vibes.
    I remember going to cinema to see that film like it was yesterday. Good times.

    I never really got the impression that the Nostromo crew actually liked one another very much. It was more of a "I'll tolerate you while we do our jobs" situation.

    In Romulus, these people grew up together and are all friends with brother/sister duos. The stakes within this group dynamic are very high.
