This is the first I'm seeing of Nathaniel Dean and Tess Haubrich being in the film.

We've known about Haubrich for a while. I think Nathaniel Dean was someone we spotted on social media but had no info for.

So Blomkamp's film is still on the table.

I wouldn't put too much stock into this just yet. The visit was nearly 9 months ago. Odds are the reports were written around then. It's likely Joblo's report just wasn't updated to reflect the later comments.

QuoteIt shouldn't have really ended, so we've come back with a very simple idea. Who made them? No one ever asked that question. [Alien] was just about there it is; it exists. And this is what it is. Seven guys and gals in a steel hull. Frankly, the very old idea of The Old Dark House. 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 and why was this thing designed to make human beings. And if you think it's them [the Engineers], you're dead wrong.
Ridley Scott.

Can't help but think we're really going in the direction that David is responsible for the Aliens as we know them. I'm holding onto hope it's some Elder God race or something but I really think it's not going there.


Quote"The aesthetic choices aren't just superficial, they tie into the larger story. "Technically, we're slightly earlier than the Giger stuff, a little bit," Seagers explained. "We're sort of edging into that. That's part of that whole storyline."
Chris Seagers.

Another hint towards David somehow introducing the biomechanical aspect to the Alien. Probably not in this film though. We've seen that.

Quote from: BishopShouldGo on Mar 01, 2017, 07:23:55 PMAnd this is very smart of them because the series is currently very incongruous.

Things didn't get incongruous until AVP started having Aliens cropping up on Earth hundreds of years before humanity supposedly made first contact with them. The four Alien films make a pretty straightforward series.

Will fans have a major problem with this if, either in A:C or further down the line, the origins of the black goo are shown to be some kind of progenitor race/elder gods? I for one will be disappointed if the scale only goes up to the Engineers.

"In addition to the Neomorphs, we will also see a creature similar to the Deacon from Prometheus, along with old favorites like Facehuggers and Chestbursters."
"O'Sullivan says "There's an enormous amount of creatures" in Covenant, and multiple versions of them."

Sounds like way more than Neo and ProtoXeno...

I don't believe it. They're probably just confused and talking about the different stages of the Neomorphs, thinking they are different creatures.

Maybe that ties in with the comment in the trailer about a complete lack of wildlife on the planet.....

QuoteThe cast and crew of COVENANT watched ALIEN before diving into this one. Ridley's orders!

Quote"That is one of the coolest things I've ever seen on screen," said Waterson. "I'm so excited for it. And also jealous because they're totally going to steal my thunder, those two robots."

I thought he didn't watch the AvP films.

I thought he never heard the critics or the fan.

Have we been deceived?

QuoteWhen we arrived, the crew was on day 60 of a 75-day shoot, a more compressed schedule and reportedly a smaller budget than Scott had to work with on the previous prequel, Prometheus. We are led to the art room
