Collider seems to confirm that the body we see in that overhead shot is indeed

Considering all the other set reports and...

Well, to my mind, since they mention

or they wouldn't have spoiled it on the set visit in the first place, you know?

The ''Hall of Heads'' sounds pretty interesting... http://collider.com/alien-covenant-spoilers-things-to-know/?utm_campaign=collidersocial&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social#creatures

I bet we'll barely learn anything about it in the movie, though. It's sad that the engineers have such a small role.

I get a feeling that quite a lot of Engineer scenes have been filmed though, with probably only a tiny fraction of it being in the final film?

Seems like it. Though I'm sure the engineers will still have a somewhat important presence in the film. Just not as important as in Prometheus.

I for one hope david wiping out the engineers (and all life on the planet as we clearly see in the trailer) is not the last of the engineers. i hope there are still engineers alive somewhere, and discover what happens at a certain point.

would bring quite the story though!

“The first ‘Alien’ was seven guys and gals in a steel hull, frankly the very old idea of ‘The Old Dark House,'” Scott recollects. “Who’s gonna die next? The fundamental basis of ‘Alien’ was a pretty old B-movie, but because of the cast and talent involved it came out an A+ movie. So we’ve reinvented the idea of ‘Alien,’ I think, which is that ‘Covenant’ gets us a step closer to who it was and why they decided to make human beings.”

With this film popping up and embracing the ALIEN universe and Blomkamps impending ALIEN 5 aka ALIEN 3 "for real", they had film researchers create a 10-page rule-book for the series. First time that happens in the franchise's history.

Interesting quote there. They have a little bible now.

Ugh... I don't care if characters are heterosexual, bisexual or homosexual, but you do not want your significant other to be your own subordinate - especially in the same military/security unit. The actors say their characters are all professional and whatever, but favouritism, even if it's subconscious, tends to creep in during life-or-death moments. That's just basic psychology.

Looks like my theory about Fassbender looking at Bishop as a template for the new synthetic was correct.

Curious about how accurate the guide they came up with is. Wonder if it'll include the magical Storm Rifle...

Alien: Covenant Actors on Playing the Franchise’s First Gay Couple.



Quote
During Screen Rant’s set visit last year, Bichir expounded on what the characters (who also appeared in the “Last Supper” prologue short) meant to him and to the broader context of the Alien mythos:

“Before partners, before husband and before lovers we are professionals and we know we can’t cross that line because that would be the difference between dead and alive. No one really crosses any line, the rest of the crew is also formed in couples and whatever happens in our cabins is private.”

“We are all couples on this ship, all kinds of couples, even men and men. For me that’s a beautiful side of the story when you can have these two almost iconic macho types being together and loving each other and being a part of keeping everyone alive.”


When asked if Lope and Hallett intend to have children of their own, Bichir replies:

“I’m sure we will be many children’s uncles because we won’t be able to have our own. Or maybe by the time we tell the story we can actually get pregnant. Please don’t tell Ridley because he might bring it in on the script and I don’t look good in a belly.”

Added Dean:

“It’s really great in the future… The thing within this film is that we don’t really italicize it. You know, it’s just a thing, they’re just two men who love each other and they’re happy to be bad-ass soldiers.”

Ridley Scott decided to come back to the world of ALIEN after being let down by the AVP films. Moreover, he listened to the fans who craved aliens in Prometheus hence why Prometheus 2 goes back to ALIEN territory even down to its title. As Scott said while I was on set: “They want Aliens, I’ll give them f*cking Aliens”. (Dude swears like a sailor – I like that!)

So Blomkamp's film is still on the table.

And this is very smart of them because the series is currently very incongruous. Alien and Aliens are the only two that feel of a piece. Maybe Alien 3. Maybe a bit of Prometheus. But yeesh.
