Complete galactic saturation.


First time I watched it, the Alien at the end had a Resurrection vibe that I didn't like.  Second time though, it was not really that obvious.

I think it looks great and I watched Prometheus again last night in anticipation...the "back burster" looks terrifying. The landscapes appear incredible.

I dig going back/forward to something that is similar to the original facehugger and appearance to the "Xenomorph." David also looks awesome.

I appreciate Prometheus, this looks like its going to cater to fans a lot more, similar to what Star Wars is doing, which is fine. Give the fans movies that they want.

Why is it if I watch a 2minutes and 14 second music clip on YouTube it seems like it takes forever to finish... But when watching this awsome Alien Covenant trailer that's the same length? It's over in seconds.  :'( Dam I want more.

Awesome! Also, I'm assuming that is the Prometheus David standing behind the egg as it's opening.

So we have airborne spores and facehuggers; I hope those eggs came from egg morphing.

Looks stunning, New Zealand truly is a beautiful place. Fassbender was right it does look like a mix between Alien and Prometheus. And now having seen a bit of the shower scene, it's exactly what I thought it would be. Should be intense!
Title: Re: Alien: Covenant Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: whiterabbit on Dec 25, 2016, 05:40:25 AM
You can also see the neomorph for a split second through the cargo net. Also loving the spore concept even though it's a ground pod vs the hanging pod I was expecting.

Ugh, I know it's early days but this trailer has shattered my excitement, recycled imagery from Prometheus and Alien, as generic as trailers can get, and the last shot is just laughable, may have been shocking in 1979, but not in 2017.

I love how the Alien has its hands pressed against the glass before it attacks. Its hands look way longer and thinner then the xeno in the first alien movie did from what I could make out.

Post by: Engineer on Dec 25, 2016, 05:45:58 AM
I'm satisfied with the trailer and what I saw. I think I'll enjoy this far more than I did Prometheus. It Doesn't seem like they've made the same mistakes, which is good...

... but for whatever reason, I still can't shake the feeling/vibe that this isn't really "alien." Something still feels off about it!
Title: Re: Alien: Covenant Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: DaddyYautja on Dec 25, 2016, 05:46:33 AM
Hmmmm, the trailer makes it seem like they just remade Alien.

They dropped in a different location but the series of events are almost the same.

A group of people land on a planet with a Jock ship, explore it, and get infected.

And if this group knows what they are looking for... why would they walk in unprotected? The planet having a breathable atmosphere is not an excuse. That scene of being infected by the spore is the same silliness we saw in Prometheus from people that should know better.

No. Is he supposed to be in the trailer? Also David looks a little chunkier where as Walter pretty much looks like David from Prometheus. Also that shot at the beginning, I'm wondering if the two are Walter and David.

The dogtags are clearly from someone, though whether that someone is a transmogrified Shaw is really anyone's guess.

Eh, serviceable. Moody, though nothing special, IMO. Not at all on the level of that famous 'Prometheus' one, but then, few things really could be.

There was something a bit artificial-looking and unconvincing about the Alien's face. Not sure why.

At least it had more promise than the lazy poster design. Guess we now know why there were two pools of blood in that set picture, eh? My guess is that the reason the other woman can't be let out is that both her and the other guy are believed to be infected.

Starting to have problems with Ridley Scott's infatuation with supposed professionals not wearing any protective suits... It's not like they couldn't have also given the pods serrated thorns to tear through the suit material and infect people that way. It's way too much like 'Star Trek' to have professionals not care about native bacteria/parasites/whatever, which could literally be anywhere in an atmosphere and for which they would potentially have no cure.

I mean, I get that, thematically, he's probably trying to push an underlying psychological theme of sacrificial vulnerability and 'shedding one's skin', but it still feels as superficial as it did the last time.

So, yes, interesting, but it hasn't given me a reason to raise my expectations. Still feels a little too close to 'Prometheus' for that. Nice to hear some of the original sound effects, however. :)

Post by: Nightmare Asylum on Dec 25, 2016, 05:57:49 AM
No clue what to make of this. Some of it looks fairly interesting, but a lot of it looks like a really generic, run of the mill slasher. I guess it's for the best that the trailer doesn't have me as excited as the Prometheus trailer did. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised this time, rather than completely burnt by the experience. I want to love this and there are some elements of the trailer that seem like they have the potential to work, but Alien is just one of those movies that I love and will always hold dear to my heart, so it upsets me so much when I see the property mangled the way it has been, especially at the hands of Ridley Scott himself. Some of this just seems so cheap and below him, even below Prometheus somehow. Like it's just horror schlock without any of the integrity of the original, or any of the ambition (however misplaced and butchered it was) of Prometheus.

I want to like this. I want to love it. I don't want to keep feeling burnt by this franchise.

Yea but Weyland was a very old man in Prometheus, there he looks to be no worse than 40 from behind. I'm thinking it's Walter sitting and David standing. Then again it could be Weyland I suppose. :laugh:

The scene where the woman refuses to open is obviously from alien.

Looks stunning looks amazing even better than Prometheus.

I LOVED the Prometheus trailer and the movie ended up disappointing. I'm lukewarm on this trailer which gives me hope for Alien Covenant. I do agree that it looks like it is just going to be a mishmash of the old films with a few new twists.

I'll be honest: I was underwhelmed. It didn't feel like an Alien film, it felt like a cheap 90s sci-fi horror film. Something like Sphere or Event Horizon, I liked both those movies but they aren't on Alien's level. And that shower scene? the greatest horror cliche in history has finally made it into the Alien series huh?

Can anyone Who read the spoilers tell me how the Aliens are portrayed in this movie? because the Alien in the shower reminded me more of the AVPR aliens than the original Giger beast. Please don't tell me the aliens are expendable canon fodder in this movie.

I'm seeing a lot of people saying they think it looks too much like Prometheus. It's a sequel to Prometheus so that makes sense. And they didn't give away any of the story which is probably why it feels generic. They literally just threw some exposition shots at us with a xenomorph tease here and there. I'm much happier with a tease than a trailer that gives away the entire story with all the money shots included. Personally, I'm not exactly thrilled the xenomorph is in this film, but I'm willing to give it a shot since I loved Prometheus. Hell, the trailer didn't even give us one line of dialogue from Fassbender. The good stuff is in the movie! This is great news.

They dropped in a different location but the series of events are almost the same.

A group of people land on a planet with a Jock ship, explore it, and get infected.

And if this group knows what they are looking for... why would they walk in unprotected? The planet having a breathable atmosphere is not an excuse. That scene of being infected by the spore is the same silliness we saw in Prometheus from people that should know better.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw the cowboy hat, the actress who reminds me of Ripley, etc.

And to elaborate a bit further, all alien movies basically follow the same series of events but atmosphere different enough in each movie that you dont care about it.

A military mission, trapped in a penal colony, sneaking into a test facility.

This one looks a lot like a group of space truckers sent to explore some crashed ship.

I liked that it didnt show much, but that shower scene was corny im just gonna say it.

The trailer editing wont help that. Remember, there likely to be far more to it than that but yeah, it is a bit of a trope. I like that there's not a lot of story specifics in this. Not much in the way of creature either - I'd been expecting them to make a bigger deal of the Alien but I'm happy with that.

Gutted they showed the death scenes they did though. Loved the Bowie cover, thought it worked really well.

Whether there's more to it or not doesn't change the fact that's a gratuitous shower scene

I'm pretty sure this silhouette is Weyland.

Yep! Looks like the footage we described when we broke the Weyland news.
Yea but Weyland was a very old man in Prometheus, there he looks to be no worse than 40 from behind. I'm thinking it's Walter sitting and David standing. Then again it could be Weyland I suppose. :laugh:

He's not supposed to be old there.

Here, refresh your memory (spoilers) http://www.avpgalaxy.net/2016/10/29/avpgalaxy-exclusive-guy-pearce-returns-alien-covenant/
Yes and it doesn't add up unless David is a lot older than most of us thought he was in Prometheus. Prometheus is what, set 10 years before Covenant and no one on the ship appeared to have ever seen the "David" production model. Of course perhaps it was a work in progress that took decades. The Scene does make sense as the flashback scene we read about though.

I'm seriously bummed out by how cheap/Earthlike what we are seeing of the planet looks like.

So much for any potential hope of anything even vaguely Giger-esque in terms of landscape. Even Prometheus' stone architecture felt closer to the look of Alien than what we're seeing here.

The dogtags are clearly from someone, though whether that someone is a transmogrified Shaw is really anyone's guess.

Eh, serviceable. Moody, though nothing special, IMO. Not at all on the level of that famous 'Prometheus' one, but then, few things really could be.

There was something a bit artificial-looking and unconvincing about the Alien's face. Not sure why.

At least it had more promise than the lazy poster design. Guess we now know why there were two pools of blood in that set picture, eh? My guess is that the reason the other woman can't be let out is that both her and the other guy are believed to be infected.

Starting to have problems with Ridley Scott's infatuation with supposed professionals not wearing any protective suits... It's not like they couldn't have also given the pods serrated thorns to tear through the suit material and infect people that way. It's way too much like 'Star Trek' to have professionals not care about native bacteria/parasites/whatever, which could literally be anywhere in an atmosphere and for which they would potentially have no cure.

I mean, I get that, thematically, he's probably trying to push an underlying psychological theme of sacrificial vulnerability and 'shedding one's skin', but it still feels as superficial as it did the last time.

So, yes, interesting, but it hasn't given me a reason to raise my expectations. Still feels a little too close to 'Prometheus' for that. Nice to hear some of the original sound effects, however. :)

Well said.  Going open helmet commando on a planet teeming with alien life is beyond stupid.  I wonder how they'll justify it.

First I was excited, then i watched it again. 

I hate the music in the trailer, I honestly think it's garbage, doesn't fit and i find it distracts from the trailer overall.  I know it won't be in the movie (or hopefully used again), but bad choice of trailer music always sullies my experience  (I tend to be hyper critical of music choices i find ill-fitting) and makes me question seeing the movie in a theatre (I'll still go see it).

The Shower scene looks exactly as cheap and tacky as I thought it would.  Thanks for that AvP:R-esque moment in there.  That's just great.

Honestly I want to be excited.  I'm not, and will echo the "it looks like a cheap 90's horror movie".  I am comparing my reaction to the Prometheus trailer, and while that film wasn't as good as it could easily have been the trailer was filled with splendor and wonder.  It showed neat parts of the culture and took you further into the Alien universe (also the music cues in that trailer and the music itself f**king rules).  This looks like a random Dark Horse comic brought to life.

I watched it a third time with the sound off.  If I didn't know this was an Alien movie, I'd have a hard time believing it took place in that universe.  It looks like a really well shot (the colour palette is great) stock horror movie.

The Prometheus trailer lived and even exceeded the hype surrounding that movie, this trailer has brought my excitement down a few notches (beyond maybe the backburster part).

I had to see it 3 times to start loving it.

I think it looks more like Prometheus than Alien, and that´s the first thing that hit the fans.

But i love that they continue with the Prometheus feel.

Other thing that i didn´t like it it´s the CGI, too much.

I love Danny McBride moment of sad and then giving the weapon to Daniels. Epic characters, like Parker and Ripley.

David 8 on the shadows looks amazing waiting for the facehugger.

The trailer sells horror and too many blood for the actual audience. In some way looks like an actual horror movie like Evil Dead.

But i love it, it look fresh in some ways, don´t spoil the main villain, keep secret and the visual looks outstanding.

Jed Kurzel on the OST, he worked with Justin Kurzel on Macbeth and Assassins Creed.

Then make it sound in context with the world.  Lyrically if it fits great, but it doesn't musically fit with the imagery in my mind.  I find the music distracting and working against the trailer.  I dislike how it sounds, and nothing about they lyrics fitting the overall story of David will make me like the arrangement/instrument choice/production of the track.  It actually really reminded me of the theme from "End of Evangelion", another track I am not fond of.

I also hate most lyrical music and in general shy away from trailer that feature musically selections with words.

Lastly, I'm still not completely sold on having David be the focus of all these movies.

Couple of thoughts.

About the back burster?
This Scene looks tense I can't wait to see what burst from his back and what attacks that woman. is it going to be something new, or a regular xeno type? who's to say that the chest burster always has to burst from the host front? It could just rip it's way out from any direction if it wanted to? Ive tried to keep away from mayjor spoilers but I'm getting the impression that David's experiments ain't quite 100% perfected that's why we are seeing strange things like back bursters and deadly spores and probably differnt xeno types. Even the egg looks a little differnt from the 70's alien egg in this trailer. Same with the alien on the poster it looks almost like H.R Giger's alien however it just seems to be missing its original xeno look by a tiny bit.

The Shower attack.
Personally I don't feel that the shower scene looks out of place in this trailer. If you go back to "Alien" Ridley Scott had the idea that sex was more acceptable between the crew members, like friends with benefits type of deal. This was also hinted in Prometheus with Vickers and the captain. I think Ridley is just making it more obvious in this film with that shower scene.

This entire movie is a damn enigma. My entire question is "what's the balance going to be" at this point.  I want to delve deeper into the Engineer mythology, and their intentions. The wonder and questions about the tie-ins to the creation of the human race at large which I think could still be, or not be a misstep. Are they catering to this at all, yet going full in on a style of movie that never had a place for any of that?  I don't want it swept under the rug.

We know well that's not the case, yet we kind of don't. Prometheus vibe is heavy with all of the totally new stuff like the Spores, and backbursting. In other places, Alien elements are back in full force;  even that egg had an obvious weirdness to it, yet had a pretty classic looking Facehugger.

This reaction is genuine excitement and drooling for the answers, yet cautious and wanting to poke it with a stick at the same time.

Holy gratuitous @ the end of the trailer, not knowing full presentation and context, that scene has the potential to be as cringeworthy-not good facepalm in the theater as the Predalien bursters.

I think naysayers should probably wait for the film itself before writing it off. Sure, there's a bunch of tropes, but most films rely on tropes right (Alien and Aliens have plenty... "here kitty kitty")... it ain't nesersarily a bad thing.

What is obvious is that Covenant has lush production values, it looks gorgeous, and clearly there seems to be more actual 'Alien' iconography in this than there was in Prometheus e.g. egg, facehugger, xeno, dark spacecraft corridors etc. etc. It all looks pretty good to me so far. Of course the films success (for me anyway) will largely depend on an engaging story/characters and a return to a sense of suspense/horror last seen in Alien/Aliens.... Ridley is probably more able to provide that than others.

Does the shower scene really bother people that much? If there is an alien covertly maneuvering around a spaceship it makes sense that it would pick up on the sound of high pressure water in the pipes. Hell the original alien was moving around in a similar fashion around the underground ducts. I'll say it again, I'm disappointed the xenomorph is even in this film, but I see how Fox would make it a condition for Scott to put it in since ultimately they need to sell tickets, but I feel like there is literally nothing he could of done that would of pleased us all. I'm excited to see the story and to see what David has been up to. That's the real draw of the movie for me. The characters, the motivations, and the existential stuff. I guess I'm approaching this as a Prometheus sequel more than an Alien prequel. Either way, I'm excited and none of the footage is offputting to me. They showed us nothing. No story. No Fassbender dialogue. All the good stuff is waiting for us in the theaters ( providing they don't spoil it all with the next trailer ). Maybe it's good that the reactions are lukewarm. We can hopefully see the money shots in the theatre like they should be.

Does the shower scene really bother people that much? If there is an alien covertly maneuvering around a spaceship it makes sense that it would pick up on the sound of high pressure water in the pipes. Hell the original alien was moving around in a similar fashion around the underground ducts.

Personally I did like this trailer mainly because of the egg/alien being revealed.. but I have to admit that it felt like the trailers only purpose was to force the R rating down our throats. Rather then give us something more cryptic to sink our teeth in to.

As someone who wasn't really wanting Alien: Covenant after being burned by Prometheus, I still think part of me, deep down, wanted to be amazed by this trailer.  But it just didn't strike any chord with me.  And I'm a guy who falls into trailer hype pretty easily (all issues with final product aside, Prometheus still has one of my absolute favorite teasers of all time, and a pretty good second trailer that I have a very fond memory of, watching it premiere live with you guys)

Obviously there's tremendous potential for this to be good if not great, but so far I'm not really feeling it.   :-\

Tomorrow I will see the trailer in more detail and without interruptions.

I felt like one of the few people who adored Prometheus and was genuinely excited for the story to continue. But my enthusiasm is slowly draining the more I see and read about this film. Perhaps they shouldn't have started with this shameless red-band trailer, which over-sells the horror but does little else. It reminded me of AvP: Requiem in the worst possible way. Has the advertising for this movie been really mediocre, or is the film itself going to be a dud? Where are all of the iconic images like the ones Prometheus had? Fresh images? Maybe the special effects aren't finished and the next trailer will be more epic and awesome? I understand why so many people bring up Alien knockoffs from Galaxy of Terror to Event Horizon. I can enjoy those movies, but I think Prometheus was several levels of sophistication above those films, and I'm disappointed beyond words that this trailer looks so... dumb.

To be fair, this looks like the most generic Alien movie so far, and yeah, I saw it coming. It's pretty much a mishmash of Alien and Aliens with just a little and vague dash of Prometheus. They're now even recurring to horror cliches like the monster killing a horny couple. Hope this is a little more than sees the eye, but still a shame they cancelled Blomkamp's to favor this regurgitated stuff.

Well if you liked the trailer then I feel safer already.

@Hicks: It just dawned on me, the entire TED speech. Weyland probably already created David back then but had to keep him a secert until Prometheus. So yem that is definitely David and Weyland. Probably where he tells David about his ambitions and delusions of immorality.

it almost seems like, to me at least, what were being shown in the trailer is just such a small portion of the movie... like pretty much just the shit hitting the fan within the first 30-45 minutes perhaps? obviously from previous posted stills with the burned remains of the engineers on the stairs, there may be A LOT more that happens.

and im very curious if during the egg scene where the facehugger jumps out, if dear ol Fassy is David or Walter in that shot.

also, theres the whole thing with the lab david has built in the photo that leaked... curious how much of that will play into the film.

Title: Re: Alien: Covenant Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: Xenoscream on Dec 25, 2016, 09:33:01 AM
OK interesting stuff. I overall like it.

A few notes / ideas.

1. We get to see the white Alien, it's what Daniels is shooting at, if you freeze the frame you can clearly see the little white Alien almost exactly like the Prometheus concept art. It looks to be about 3 feet tall.
2. Not really sold on the whole airborne spores - seems a lot less scary than getting raped by a facehugger.
3. I think the shower scene may actually be 2 people trying to be decontaminated, if you look at the scene the shower seems to be firing from all angles - this would make it a lot less cheesy. i.e. shit we are infected get naked and washed off, and f**k it lets make out because we are probably going to die.
4. Alien's hands are BIG
5. Good to see the facehugger - great spot of David lurking in the background.


All in all I agree the trailer is not the best, but this is an ALIEN movie and that makes me very happy.

That scene had real potential to be incredibly disturbing and creepy. Personally, I really like Spaihts' script. It wasn't without flaws (I would have removed the traditional Aliens completely) but I think it was a much better experience than Prometheus.

Great trailer! Not as great as the first Prometheus trailer, but still enough to get excited about.

I'm really glad the continued the eastetic of Prometheus, whiltst incorporating more of the feel of Alien. I can see now why they chose New Zealand. It does the same for this as Iceland did for Prometheus. It looks absolutely gorgeous.

I think the music is great, though that doesn't say anything about the film itself.

I don't like the fact that they're showing us so much casualties allready. I think it should be more mysterious.

But overall, I'm really looking forward to this.

The shower scene is most definitely a sex scene... at first. Those two are clearly embracing, getting it on.

They might have an open shower or something... akin to Starship Troopers. Or else maybe those two got up out of bed and thought... "Hey babe, let's go bang in the decontamination shower." Hopefully with context its not as cheesy as it sounds.

My favorite part so far I think is that its an environment we haven't gotten to see yet in an ALIEN movie.

Or whatever they were expecting from a movie called ALIEN: Covenant.

Slightly off topic but I love how all of a sudden everyone on Reddit and Youtube are HUGE fans of Prometheus and are absolutely affronted that the trailer wasn't two and a half minutes of Shaw and an Engineer having a dance off for the future of humanity while David's disembodied head acts as DJ in the background. Or whatever they were expecting from a movie called ALIEN: Covenant.
You "love" it? Why?

Prometheus was a unique film, and apparently it will remain so. Alien already had three sequels and two spinoffs. Prometheus was a franchise that never had a chance to spread its wings, and as a story it had much more potential than Alien ever had.

It's like if we got a trailer for a sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey and the trailer started with a shootout and ended with car chase without ever hinting that they would continue Dave Bowman's story. Yes, people would be offended.

Anyone notice Daniels watching the necklace with the tag....is that Shaw's tag? It seems they found this in the derelict??

Those mountain shots, beautiful. Mobius is everywhere, Daniels' head gear in the helmet, fn' great, head gear of the landing crew too, fantastic. McBride looks convincing. Look, the Prometheus trailers cannot be beat, but it's better when the film actually exceeds the trailer, so that remains to be seen. Looks like an unpretentious, beautifully shot slasher in space thus far, with perhaps some Miltonian musings from David.

Katherine's acting at that table scene was awful, poor girl probably got zero direction from Scott. The lighting and that shaky cam didn't feel like alien to me. The non action scenes with David and the planet felt promethesy, the rest just felt like some bland horror movie. I realise now after watching this trailer that the only thing that interests me is Fassbender's character. As someone else said here, if the trailer focused more on the planet, David and his evil plans rather then the gore the trailer would've been better.

Rite, so though i'm excited at a levle, i'm also rather disappoint.
I'll sum up my negatives and positives

Negative :

- trailer without suspense, and far from Prometheus 'atmosphere'.
- i dont like the backbuster, just too 'try to shock through hurt'
- i hate the spore idea, like profoundly. it makes no sense. spores that affect the 'species' recieving it in a way - sure. dna degrading, sure. but a could of spores creating a living organism that turns into a backburster? no. no no. it is also just a cheap lame way. The egg thing and facehugger thing is great, it's scary and though 'twisted', it is oddly also rather acceptable as a 'form of nature'. this spore stuff is just silly.
- the end scene with the tail between the legs is just no. not shocking, not cool. avp-r level as mentioned and just corny.
- too much classic alien 'reveal'. i wanted suspense and hinting. not in your face.

the positives

- david looks evil in the background with the egg. just 1 egg. could that be a morphed shaw? disturbing. really disturbing. yet cool. how long has he been standing there?
- the derelict, and it being overgrown with nature.
- the trees. something happened there.
- the appearence of the ship
- the planet indeed is that of the introduction of prometheus, not earth.

i am left with some questions though

Spoiler
- i thought james franco died in cryo, am i mistaken that it's james franco that gets the facehugger?
[close]
- how old is david8 really? that is clearly david8 and a much younger weyland. old weyland was what, 90?!!! must be 40 years at least passed. explain that timescale. doesn't make sense.
- is that view that weyland and david have on the screen actually 'paradise' ?! if it is - how?!

I think Weyland created David decades before the events of Prometheus but hide him from society. It's what his entire TED speech was about if you think about it. Legalizing artificial intelligence.

Juggernaut crashed on the planet, I wonder how David released that black goo...
Other than that, pretty interesting, cinematography is top notch as expected,
visual effects are even better. :D I think this will play out fine although its obvious
Ridley and his writing board played this one pretty safe in terms of overall
story. Its pretty clear Covenant is new Prometheus and I think
the next one will really bring us closer to resolution.

Funny, I m very familiar with Justin Kurzel's work.

P.S. I was right about Aurora's cover :) Now I need to prepare for trailer dissection!

I enjoyed the trailer, I guess this is a rescue mission that going to go wrong ala "Aliens".   They must of sent the Covenant to find David and Shaw.   The crashed shipped is probably theirs.  LOL @ the Alien Hitchcock Shower Scene.   Definitely feel like this one will be more action packed but still have that suspense.  I guess David has a "Human" counterpart like Bishop unless the android David somehow gets a new body.   Anyways, the new girl looks like a young Ripley which means Shaw is probably getting written out.  Overall looks like a good sequel, I'm just happy Ridley and co stopped this spin about "Prometheus" not being a "prequel" or "Loosely tied".  The black goo was in this trailer as well.  I just hope the engineers story doesn't end with "Prometheus".    Basically when the box set comes out:


Alien: Prometheus
Alien: Covenant
Alien: Whatever the next ship is called
Alien: Nostromo
Aliens: LV-426
Alien 3: Fiorina 167
Alien Resurrection: Auriga
Alien 5: TBD

:D

i am loving this trailor. .the beginning felt really tense and well acted. .the backburster scene looks like it.s gonna deliver and theirs just so much panic.  .and i actually feel sorry for these people. . .the rest of it everythings awesome imo. .shower scene i did not mind in the least. . But it never bothered me when i first heard about it either. . .anyway i am very excited. .is the trailor better than the first teaser for prometheus. . No nothing could top the music in that trailor. . But then once u actually saw the full movie. . Those trailors gave away too much. .and the music is this trailor . . .. i thought it was great too. .just not quite as effective as the music used in the prometheus trailor. .

Dat Ending part xD


im glad they are spoiling death scenes..... but why? i know already who r the 3 people who will die for sure

and yes that was corny as F. AVP-R level indeed and why am i feeling it wont be the level on the Clemens scene. now that was built up and scary!

also why would the alien take only the guy? is it a serial killer playing around? wtf

Ridley screwing up again it seems. that scene spoiled the whole tone i guess.


my feelings what this movie will be


classic xenos+more gore+great acting+great shots+great music+great effects in a very very very dumb movie. again



i just wish Ridley would have played with Alien Isolation just to remember whats Alien is all about bc he seemed to forget it

I think the trailer has just been crushed under it's own weight of anticipation and expectation. The Alien and Prometheus trailers are two of the most iconic trailers ever. So for that reason alone I'm gonna cut it some slack. It was obviously heavily aimed at those of us displeased that Prometheus wasn't horrifying or Alieny enough. I've watched it about 6 times now and it does grow on you.

One thing that's really important to me is the portrayal of the Alien. I'm hoping the screech during the shower scene is just a placeholder and it's actually a bit more silent, in line with the original.

I think Danny McBride is going to be brilliant. I know we haven't even hear him speak yet, but he wouldn't look amiss off the Nostromo in that cowboy hat!

I'm liking the trailer overall (apart from the choice of music and slasher feel). I just hope they deliver on the large scope aspect. Despite it's faults I adore Prometheus because of the big questions it asks about creation. 

Where in the trailer are the dog tags suspected of being Shaw's?

*sigh*


Im in it tho bc of Fassbender yet again to see how Walter and David interact or is it there a twist, maybe Walter is evil as well and David was just a curious kid. And for Danny he looks cool and gets a lot of screen time it seems.


And now im curious to see whats the balck goo is capable of and why on that planet xenos breed from the black goo.

Post by: shawsbaby on Dec 25, 2016, 11:56:02 AM
Trailer looks great to me. It's very clearly emphasizing a certain facet of the film, not the totality. Based on the leaked spoilers, that's very much the case.

I was surprised they showed Crudup getting facehugged and so much of that intense scene where Seimetz isn't letting Ejogo out of the surgery room. Otherwise, I'm actually impressed by how much of the plot isn't given away in the trailer and how restrained the imagery is.

And I agree, it's so funny that suddenly everyone is Prometheus' biggest fan and is appalled by how "generic" this looks. I certainly don't think anyone would have been happy with a 2 hour 2 person play-in-space of Shaw and David getting to the Engineers home planet (or a film taking place on that planet with living Engineers that, without a $300 million budget, would probably look embarrassing).

Post by: bacchus on Dec 25, 2016, 12:12:27 PM
Long time lurker, first time poster after seeing the trailer I thought I'd share my thoughts.

I'm really unimpressed. It just doesn't evoke any of the spirit of Alien or Aliens. If anything, I got an AVP: Requiem vibe - which clearly isn't a good thing. It felt too sanitised, overly saturated, and the CG (Xeno at the end in particular) really didn't work for me at all.

I was hoping (expected) dark, subtlety, poignant, a lot more Giger-esque. What gave us the atmosphere in Alien and Aliens was the dirtyness, the lived-in feel, the raw industrial/grimey feel. Everything in the trailer felt over-thought, over-designed, and over-done. Even the "blood" looked out of place. From the breif glimpse we've had, I felt the production design of Prometheus was superior to Alien Covenant.

Also, things just look so recycled from 20+ years of Hollywood. It doesn't feel like Ridley Scott. Like others have said - the spore floating into the ear....unnecessary all of that depth of field, slow motion etc. Exactly the opposite of what an Alien film should be like. The worst part - that "sizzle reel" in the second half of the trailer, the explosions, the editing, the glimpses of set pieces. They looked awful and cheap.

I didn't get the vibe that this was a polished, Ridley Scott masterpiece on the level of Alien - it felt rushed and cliched.

It felt like what Michael Bay would do if asked to direct an Alien movie.

Really hope the second trailer is darker, and that the CG is more polished in the final film. Really wished they'd use animatronics/puppetry than CG.

Disappointed.

Alien: Convenient

gorgeous sets but this is Scott's standard fare, Prometheus and Martian had gorgeous sets too that's a given

the filmmakers are saying: here's Prometheus as we should have done it before we're doing it better now sorry we forgot the Aliens last time here they are now it's going to be good watch our movie !!

And this begins from the fact the title is ALIEN Covenant and not Prometheus Covenant

this literally looks like the same film as Prometheus, selling itself with the things general audiences wants (cheap scares, Aliens, gore) and was "denied" in the last film in much the same way AvP 2 almost a decade ago sold itself with trailers that promised the R rating with that obvious glowing red R that they later said stood for "Requiem" -- for your brain, something I suspect will be necessary once you watch this new film

there's a nice crescendo of cringe throughout from the Harbinger Down guy to the couple making love in the shower as the creature tail slips in like a voyeur pervert! In the shower!!! I love this, Alien has turned into the countless copycats spawned after its release

You are spot on.  Only watched once and her acting (yes I know this is a trailer and .0000098% of the movie) was just terrible.  I cannot believe they let a trailer go out in distro like this.  They could have made this more of a mystery with zero music and just sounds that leave the viewer uncomfortable and anxious....instead, it left me like goo under my shoe, only to be wiped off like many of the standard canned AvP or teens in the creepy cabin.  Just disappointed.

I think people were expecting to be as impressed as they were initially with the Prometheus trailer, which was truly great and literally set the trend for lots of other trailers. In comparison, this feels generic.

It might not turn out to be one of the best Alien films, but, let's be honest, it's still going to be a better sci-fi horror than most things over the past few years.

Quote from: bacchus on Dec 25, 2016, 12:36:11 PMI think people were expecting to be as impressed as they were initially with the Prometheus trailer, which was truly great and literally set the trend for lots of other trailers. In comparison, this feels generic.

I'd much rather have an OK trailer for a great film than a superb trailer for a crap one.

Here, here!

Besides, the more you watch the trailer the more it grows on you. i was underwhelmed at first but I'm pretty satisfied now.

I agree with some on the colour palette. But that may change come May?

I think the back bursting sequence is gonna be particularly good. I thought the acting for this was rather convincing. Katherine waterston at the table, not so much. But ya know, she may play a blinder in the film. Noomi Rapace was dreadful in Prometheus.

Aliens went a totally different direction even with the trailer already.

I've been out most of the day celebrating Christmas with the family and new this trailer had finally dropped but I resisted watching it given all the distraction around me. Got home and watched in glorious HD all quiet and alone and ... bam ... wow.

The vibe is not what I was expecting. Shades of the original Alien and Prometheus to boot. That backburster scene looks horrifying and that spore/embryo(??) flying into that dudes ear. Wow.

And Scott finally got his sex scene in too (remember the original Alien was planned to have a scene in the removed Observation Bubble). That tail curling up ... Lambert all over again.

I want more!!!

But now its time for people to start wining and hating about every detail because they cpmpletely over hyped themselves up for something that was totally different in their head. The comparisons to avpr and how Scotts a hack, I'm sure it'll all get posted. If it hasn't already.

But I'm happy looks like its gonna be really great, can't wait for may to get here.

Yep, just skim-read through this thread, it's mentioned several times.  :laugh:

Pretty much how I thought it would look and it looks great. No surprises, no complaints. Yet.
Would be interesting to see how everything looks and works in the proper context though. That first Prometheus teaser trailer was mind-blowing but the actual film was a bit of a letdown.

I dont think Hollywood needs creative writers. They can sell whatever they want with an established franchise. We are living the age of the remakes remember :)

Aliens is as much of a remake of Alien as Prometheus and Covenant.

Check it...

Alien & Aliens

Ripley travels to planet to check out a disturbance.
Aliens infect/kill crew.
She escapes hell by blowing up the place (ship/Hadley's Hope) and believes the Alien/s are dead.
Alien stowaway is revealed and Ripely hides away to suit up (spacesuit/Powerloader) and blow the creature out of the airlock.

Covenant taking similar scenes from Alien is just the nature of sequels.

Watched it a second time, it just looks so great, so much good stuff in this trailer.

The alien at the end of the trailer can barely be seen other than a tiny bit of the face and some of the tail. So you can't compare it design wise. But I think it is the original xeno or really close to it, that facehugger that hits crudup looks like a normal facehugger from the other films.

Nah the Resurrection hands have 2 elongated fingers with a thumb either side. AvP onwards had flipper hands. I was expecting hands similar to the tease we got ageeees ago in the creature workshop, which looked reminiscent albeit slightly different to Big Chap. What we saw in the trailer seemed like yet another variation of the creature's hands. At least they're not flippers :)

The jury's out for me. There's no way that the film can be judged based on this trailer alone. The music all but guarantees that because it shapes the mood of what we're seeing, even though it's just temp trailer music. I'm withholding judgement.

That said, me being pretty much spoiler-free, it sure does kind of look like a note-for-note remake of ALIEN, doesn't it? But come on, it couldn't have taken them three years to write an ALIEN remake. I hope that there are many surprises left out of this trailer.

[p.s: Is it just me, or does the captain have a bit of a Tom Skerritt vibe?]

What a panic and negativity. Almost nothing of the real story (the spacejockeys, role David etc) was given away. Some scarejumps and that's it. "It's so generic i'am gonna cry". Just like with almost every movie.

That's supposed to be the Juggernaut that David and Shaw nicks at the end of Prometheus (but not the one that the Prometheus rams though). They fly off to the Engineer homeworld (known as Paradise) and apparently crash-land in the forest.

What if paradise is LV-426? what if that juggernaut never made it out and just landed on that beautiful planet,
and after the crash of David and Shaw it slowly became a black goo infested planet and after Covenant it became more rotten and rotten and started to change over the years into a desolate place, i know it isnt Lv-426 but he shouldnt have parked that Juggernaut as the Derelict ship!!! and its parked backwards ffs!!! ;)

Its safe to say this is David (blonde) with long hair as it comes out of his hoody, yes?


I think the egg/facehugger is Davids legacy/work, eventually he will be in the movie, luring the captain into looking into the egg and getting facehugged, giving birth to the xeno on the Covenant, seeing his work that is finally working to creating the perfection weapon as the god he thinks he is, probably killed Shaw with his first experiment.
Then the crew of the Covenant become victim to the xeno terror and all becoming eggs, therfor the engineer in the derelict captured those eggs at some point in the timeline, trying to get them back to their world (Earth) because David made them and we made David, the engineers offcourse gives birth to something horrible, crashes the ship on LV-426 and sends a warning signal.
So if there will ever be another movie after this, it will involve a lot more info on everything as for the goo as for the engineers,
and thus Blomkamp will have to change his story/script.

Kinda weird trailer, especially showing multiple death scenes - why? I guess there are other useable scenes to show Prometheus complainers that this time there are Aliens and eggs in it - without spoiling the fates of several characters.

Feels a bit like:
Look, there are eggs and Aliens, like in the original. Look, there is a cowboy hat and old stuff, space truckers - you know? Look, there is something like the chestburster scene in this one as well. Look, a chick like Ripley in tank top. Look, helmets and shoulder cameras like in Aliens...so much similar stuff, so this time it's Alien for sure! I'm fine with this, as long as we get a good plot and acting as well :D

Though, not judging the whole thing by an early trailer. Liked the first Prometheus trailer, but the movie - not so much :D

I'm SHOCKED at all the complaining I see on various boards. This was honestly better than I expected, the acting looks fantastic, the cinematography - about which people whine everywhere I look now  - honestly looks great to me - dark and gritty but also very beautiful (the shots of the environment of the planet) and that opening scene was tense as hell. Fantastic trailer!
Agreed, the hate is immeasurable as Krennick would say!
Ridley knows how to create good effects and worlds, this trailer has everything going and still people hate on it.
Or those people dont know nothing about movies and they just follow the hate hype, because thats what everybody does.
Or they are just full of shit.

I can't believe people are shocked that others are going to have a difference of opinion when it comes to making a judgment on the trailer. For some (myself included) the trailer doesn't make much of an impression. It just looks like old hat to me.

Maybe the greenband will be better.

While the trailer had some problems, I'm not that worried about the film itself and it won't a simple Alien remake. We know that there is additional stuff like David's experiments, burned Engineers, different strains of Alien. Also we didn't had before in an Alien film, a lush green planet like here. We were presented familiar elements to get us interested, but there is more than meets the eye.

The scale of this shocks me. This is a great trailer and Alien movies are always a crew of a ship or a group of people being taken down by creature(s). What did people expect to happen here?

Wow! Looks like a generic early 2000's sci fi horror that's nothing to do with Alien films, more like a uninspired Alien knock off. Obvious cgi that's made worse with terrible cheap color grading doesn't help. Not sure if im gonna see it, i turned off AVP:R halfway in, might as well skip this one entirely. I'm sure it won't be as dreadful as AVP:R, but i will be really pleasantly surprised if it can top even Alien:Resurrection, i really doubt it will.

Prometheus didn't work for me at all and was a complete mess with some interesting and unexpected ideas, but at least they tried to do something different. For me the Prometheus killed the space jockeys, but this one will try it's best to finish off the perfect organism.

I think movies like this should only be made if the script is amazing and it expand the universe while not damaging the classics. Im not saying that Prometheus shouldn't have been made, but i it was a mistake to tie it in with Alien universe, they are worlds apart and this will be even further away, even if it's got eggs, facehuggers, xenomorphs etc. Despite this i really respect Ridley Scott and all but thank god he is not directing the Blade Runner sequel.

I just watched the truler, and thought it was pretty damn good! Visually the film looks even better than Prometheus, which is really saying something. Also, I like that it doesn't spoil much.

Of course I loved the shot of the Juggernaut, and the brief glimpse of the traditional alien.

I have a question and comment on it, the part when you see the Covenant passing a planet where there is lightning in the clouds, and then the camera follows the Covenant but in the distance you see another planet with a sun behind it, isnt it more likely that that is the planet they are heading? and what do we know for sure that the planet where the clouds and lightning are on isnt the one from Prometheus??
if David and Shaw or lets say David is on that planet "paradise" for ten years, ten they didnt travel long to get there.

Scott is delivering a popcorn thriller, laced with the more philosophical elements of Prometheus.  A good mix, and one that a majority audience demanded quite viciously.

People are right to guffaw at the trailer for being nothing new - it's not.  But then, what were people expecting from a Ridley Scott Alien movie?  Especially one where Scott has possibly been 'asked' to sell-out his original vision to appease said cynical, impatient majority audiences?

Any disappointment with the trailer might comes from those who have followed all the set pictures and secrets that we shouldn't really know.  So those people are perhaps disappointed that those more abstract choices weren't included in the trailer, and I agree with that thinking. 

However, Fox has to build a momentum that convinces those that hated Prometheus to come to this one - this trailer delivers and a degree of nostalgia was inevitable as a result.

However, I think people here still believe in the movie itself - no reason not to.  I, for one, enjoyed Prometheus, and Alien is my favourite movie.  I think it's a shame that there may be less risk here, but it'll be an enjoyable movie.

I do not understand why all the hate for the trailer....doesnt ruin the movie.
Seems scarier than Prometheus and the alien(and facehugger) we love is back.

Two things i did not like though.
First,the tail in the shower scene.Not very convincing...maybe the cgi will be better on the final copy.

Second,the spore flying in the ear.Even if it turns out that it is a trap from David,i do not like it as a way
to infect people.Facehugger,black goo on your drink...ok.Flying spores that seem like they came from the
Matrix...no.

It's visually fantastic, maybe even sharper than "Prometheus". The shots of David in the piano room and the ship heading to the planet are simply delicious!

Also eliminates any concern we might have had about the degree of the gore and horror aspect :).

I am mostly worried about wether or not they will give serious continuation to "Prometheus"'s themes. It definitely seems, for better or worse, a totally different movie in terms of tone and atmosphere.

Looks great, listen to those footsteps in the beginning in the corridor..i just hope aliens are not full cgi looking..

I initially thought it was going to be a clever reference to 'Alien 3', with that being the sound of a creature the crew had trapped, banging on a door.

When you see the two female characters meet, however, the same noise coincides with the woman banging her hand on the door, who's begging to be let out of there.

As I wrote earlier, I suspect this is because she's also regarded as being similarly infected. If not, then the other character is going to look like a dick for not taking the opportunity to try quickly letting her out.

That shriek at the end might be a placeholder sound effect though. The Hugger sound is lifted directly from the '79 film. We haven't seen literally anything to determine how the Alien is gonna be portrayed. I'm sure Scott will make the Alien seem Alien again, or at least I'm choosing to place my faith in him until I've seen the film in May.

And in my opinion, Alien/Ridley Scott DID make use of existing thriller/horror tropes. These did NOT start with Alien.

So am I but we have to look at the date it came out in.  The average film-maker or viewer has next to zero access to this in a per-vhs beyond private screenings, or the films being played at a theatre or on TV.  Tropes I think more form in the days of VHS and with accessibility to these films.  Before that, most of these films were made in complete isolation.  They might not have started with Alien, but Alien is one of the last refining stages before they become established tropes.  In my mind, the watering down/becoming a overused cliche all has to do with the rise of VHS and horror film in the 1980's.  It might have existed before, but many filmmakers would have zero knowledge of it or ability to watch those films.  You also have to localize geography quite a bit as well, as screening of international horror films in the 70's we very few and very far between even in massive cities. 

Even Scott and Dan Obannon have claimed to have never seen "Planet of the Vampires" when ALIEN was made (a claim i do not believe but they still claimed it).

I think technology/time frame has more to do with the rise of tropes/cliche than anything else.  I'm more likely to go easy on a film that dates before 1980 than I am during the Home Video revolution.

Yeah, Alien was dragged through the critical grinder for using many old tropes (splitting up search parties, cat scares, etc) that were instantly recognisable (and quite old hat) to audiences in the 70's. Since Alien became the benchmark, younger fans just don't have the same perspective and don't recognise that much of the film was repurposed from older material.

Meh trailer. I see trailers as a work of art in themselves, as they should present something appetizing and stimulating to the mind. This doesn't cut it. Plus, CGI aliens? Uncharacteristic cinematography from the start? Incomprehensible dialogue? I'm worried.

But I'm not gonna judge until I've seen the real deal.

I kinda wanna see the Shaw and David movie that takes place between Prometheus and Covenant.  Kinda like Shaw and David starring in "Moon".

That would be really interesting, how i imagined the sequel could pan out after seeing Prometheus. A nightmarish entrance to the Giger-esque world.

I really hope that that neomorph has a friendly child face, something like the creature from Mimic the movie had a humanoid sillouette.
Just to throw you off.

Please no, another cheap horror trope that is far below the threshold of Alien standards.
NO!! Listen to me, we need kids faces on these neomorphs!!

ALIEN explicitly made use of horror tropes; it's all about execution. We'll have to wait and see.

ALIEN did it before those tropes were as really established, and with a sense of mystery and style that you just can't pull off in 2016.  Pre-1980 horror films establish the tropes, 1980 (the year slasher films exploded on the film world) solidifies them and the rest of the 80's was spent building on those tropes to the point of cliche. 
I consider myself quite an aficionado of horror films... everything from expressionist German horror to Classic Universal and Hammer Studios films... to the classic horror movies of the 60's and 70's.

Since Alien became the benchmark, younger fans just don't have the same perspective and don't recognise that much of the film was repurposed from older material.

No, they were to critics and film fans/buffs, not to general audience members who might see a few films a year.  To the general viewing audiences those tropes still had some life left in them.  Again, it goes back to home video.  Everything changes when you go from being able to see what is at the theatre or what happens to be playing on TV that evening (and outside major metropolitan areas, this means you might get 3-5 TV channels and maybe a theatre, my home town of 60k in the 80's had 2 single screen and one double screen theatre till 1985 plus 2 drive-in seasonally, rarely did anything horror make it there in the 80's) to being able to rent at any time from a selection of thousands of movies.  As the general populations watches more their viewing IQ goes up, as does their expectations.  When you get to my generation, who rented movies by the truckload (I watched/rented maybe 5-10 movies a week as a child), you end up with a far more educated audience every quickly.

I won't say Alien didn't use tropes, just I excuse them a lot more because of the time period and because I think it brought some important ones to the table.

It certainly hasn't blown me away to be honest. Whilst it isn't bad, it just feels to far disconnected to what the original Alien presented. I know we've only seen a glimpse, but it doesn't even feel like the same universe.

Instead of prequels, I wish now Prometheus had actually been a post-resurrection sequel exploring the Engineers.
Title: Re: Alien: Covenant Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: acrediblesource on Dec 25, 2016, 07:02:01 PM
I was thinking about that the effect of seeing the engineer in a state of fossilization made the engineers begging to be discovered.
That's far more dramatic than actually seeing the society of engineers dance about.
If they are all dead, we should just see remains of them. MY guess is that the trailer shown us the first act and not the second. The second by which we meet David. etc.etc.

Long time lurker, 1st post:

My take on trailer: Just like everything else there will be thumbs up, and there will be thumbs down - no matter what. I personally liked it, but only after watching couple of times. Two main points:

1. This is just the 1st trailer - 1st part/hour of the movie.  Arrival, landing, spores and finally lander blowing forcing them to "step out".
2. Real Prometheus/Alien story is in the 2nd part for which there will be 2nd trailer.  Entering Citadel, finding David and his "chamber of horrors".  One of them is the alien egg, experiment for which David needed and finally found test rabbit. 

I also expect David to show them what happened with Engineers (remember stills of Engineer / Alien  massacre?) and how things got out of hand on Paradise.  What happens afterwards will be the 'real' meat of the movie.  I am very curious about Shaw story.  Has David put her in hibernation, or is she another of his experiments?  There might be some real foreshadowing here.  Noomi Rapace is not even on main screen actor list, yet she reportedly spent several weeks filming in Sydney.   I don't believe she will turn out to be alien queen, but I wouldn't be surprised if she is the only survivor from Covenant movie - and not Daniels, as most expect.  Along with Walter probably.

Another speculation -- Alien 5 has been delayed because it would spoil Covenant in some degree.  Reportedly script has "the most satisfying end to Alien saga".  Can it be that Ripley, Hicks and Nute end up on Paradise, where everything started by David' experiments with black goo.  So this is where Ripley will somehow find way to finally finish it for good.

Really enjoyed the trailer, it's clear that they choosed to keep most of the movie a secret.
For those that complained about the spores, you should read this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophiocordyceps_unilateralis


Obviously Scott looked for something which exist on earth, much like some of the design of the deacon was based on the goblin shark.

Post by: Hemi on Dec 25, 2016, 07:17:10 PM
Dunno...  For me it kinda made sense.  Specialy after Prometheus.  Tad more body horror,  which is great.  The whole spore thing I prepared for.  It's different kind of alien. Maybe not the alien we hoped for,  but it's an alternative I can live with.  It feels dirty and vile,  like an alien movie should feel.  I just hope we don't get the stupid dialogue and story inconsistencies that Prometheus had.  Maybe it will even change my mind on Prometheus, and create some sort of bridge between the two. I like Prometheus style and it looks like this new one will build upon that and make it more dirty.  Not a bad trailer tbh. Even the ending part was not the typical shower scene imo.

We have context and patterns of data going back decades. We have the trickle of stills with design work going back for months. I have seen nothing impressive or exciting in any the Covenant material. This trailer merely confirms my position. So far, seems more like, "Move along, nothing to see here."

fans expected flawless movie and endorsed the trailer, but they
ultimately were disappointed with the movie itself. Perhaps it will be

I consider myself quite an aficionado of horror films... everything from expressionist German horror to Classic Universal and Hammer Studios films... to the classic horror movies of the 60's and 70's. And in my opinion, Alien/Ridley Scott DID make use of existing thriller/horror tropes. These did NOT start with Alien.

So am I but we have to look at the date it came out in.  The average film-maker or viewer has next to zero access to this in a per-vhs beyond private screenings, or the films being played at a theatre or on TV.  Tropes I think more form in the days of VHS and with accessibility to these films.  Before that, most of these films were made in complete isolation.  They might not have started with Alien, but Alien is one of the last refining stages before they become established tropes.  In my mind, the watering down/becoming a overused cliche all has to do with the rise of VHS and horror film in the 1980's.  It might have existed before, but many filmmakers would have zero knowledge of it or ability to watch those films.  You also have to localize geography quite a bit as well, as screening of international horror films in the 70's we very few and very far between even in massive cities. 

Even Scott and Dan Obannon have claimed to have never seen "Planet of the Vampires" when ALIEN was made (a claim i do not believe but they still claimed it).

I think technology/time frame has more to do with the rise of tropes/cliche than anything else.  I'm more likely to go easy on a film that dates before 1980 than I am during the Home Video revolution.
I'm still not sure I'd agree. Ridley Scott knew exactly what he was doing when he used half light, smoke, hissing cats, close shots etc. etc. when making the original Alien. He was using all the techniques/tropes of previous films/filmmakers to create suspense (which is what good filmmakers usually do). What I think has changed is...

1) There are more products/films out there now. Every other film is a big budget thriller... so by definition it's harder for any film to stand out in a crowd/competitive market. A good thriller usually uses the same tropes as a bad thriller. The difference being that they are usually better executed in terms of cinematic language/context.

2) Related to the above... With the increase in volume of products/films, there is a risk of a deterioration in the skills (or less emphasis placed on those skills) in order to push films to market too quickly. Thus some filmmakers resort to tropes without understanding their cinematic context. Which is why there are many examples of modern filmmakers equating suspense/thrills to just 'jump'/'boo' moments... which is usually the default position of lesser filmmakers.

I'm intrigued anyway, seems to be a pretty basic setup and everyone knows there's aliens for definite. Visuals look fine, though for the first thing you see on an alien planet grass and barley/wheat plants ain't that exotic. Showing character deaths in the trailer was dumb too, but whatever.  Compared to Prometheus this looks like it may explain stuff, or at least try to give some origin for the usual alien and that's fine by me. 

Only major annoyance is the lack of space suits again, why does Ridley hate them so much?

So we mostly saw just stuff from the 1st act, right? Except the shower scene...but that seems a bit odd. Your fellow crew members just got killed by some space crap and you wanna have sex in the shower?:D

That is probably from the first act. It might even be the first kill by a Xeno (not including any chest/back bursting.)

Spoiler
So that is the protoxeno that is already there and not the one that gets out of the facehugged dude?

So there are neomorphs? protomorphs? and xenomorphs? in this movie?

The magic is gone. That's the most concise way to put it. I can wait for this on video and not miss anything. I'm happy for the people who are hyped for this. I hope it's not another turd, but the more they show, the less I care about it. I'll monitor its progress in the hope that I'm wrong. But so far, this thing is not thrilling me.

Yup, the magic is gone, because everyone who touches the Alien Franchise is incompetent. INCOMPETENT!
Another franchise burned for me. Oh well...

No offence ladies and gentleman but some of you need a treatment for pessimism. Are you ever happy in your life? :) I don't want to be mean but how can you judge a movie by its trailer. I think that trailer is amazing and movie is gonna be even better. Now you say that I'm judging movie by the trailer. Yes I do. But I do it with optimism because it's bloody stunning.

So trying to figure out the sequence of events...Curdup gets facehugged, this thing gets out and it's the one that kills the people in the shower? And that is the so called protoxeno that later evolves to the one we see in Alien?

And going by the leaks
Spoiler
they said David saves the crew from neomorph and that's how they meet him. So there is one neomorph already there - did it get out of Shaw? That would be for the sake of consistency since we have two in the movie that get out of the crew of Covenant, neomorph that is previously there should have come out of a human host too.

That's a good point. Maybe it had something to do with the info graphic from the black goo released a couple of months after prometheus that claimed that the ampules  was able to spread the black goo  either by ingestion of water that contained it or by inhaling it from air infected with it . ONE of the side affects of ingesting it was that it made people horny. Could be the cause.

There's going to be 2 more, maybe a 3rd actually.... unless it bombs of course. NB's movie is unlikely to ever happen. I have no qualm proclaiming if it doesn't start production by 2018 it's absolutely dead. Disgustedly enough, NB's aliens is probably the back up plan.

Also, there isn't anything in this trailer that looks cheap. Prometheus might as well be the prologue with A:Covenant being the first act of a quintilogy or more precisely a trilogy with bookends. The rumored 4th film will probably tie straight into Prometheus.

Spoiler
If the alien came from a spore cocoon then that could mean they are a naturally evolving life form who was harvested as a weapon by the engineers. The planet could be paradise and the tree of knowledge may be quite literal, eat from the fruit and attain vast knowledge. The black goo seems capable of this feat. Of course the side effect is the alien.

However there are 2 neomorphs in the movie. The one in the lander and one outside, who then runs into the woods. Who knows when he comes back into the story. We all assume the black alien is the facehugger breed beast.

One thing I have to be honest about, that 4chan leaker must have been bs. Cause how the hell can David drop death and then not land the ship. I don't buy a last minute defense where they shot him down. The mofo crashed on purpose more than anything or at least in a fight with Shaw for the controls.

I think Ridley told Blomkamp to wait because Ridleys plans could contradict Blomkamps story or vision on the alien.

And the spores i think are simple wildlife flora that has come in contact with the black goo, our first xeno plant :D instead of impregnating other plants/spores with simple flower stuff it impregnates anything that can give birth.

Remember that 1080p is downloaded with no audio. Look for a browser that allows you to join them . That means you will have to download the audio separately.

Ive watched the trailer a few times now. At least we now know that the giant tree stumps were actually normal giant trees until the flying croissant carved its way through the trees when it crash landed. I wonder if theres anything that can be inferred from the trajectory  at which the ship seems to have crash landed.

The very brief glimpse of the inside of that ship shows some kind of organic detail/veiny structure draped over the corner of the juggernaut control panel near the chair. Or it could just be moss/vine growth.

Overall I'm quite happy so far. The only things that bug me are the shower scene (looks like something that belongs in AVP Requiem along with expectant mothers being rapidly birthed in the hospital maternity ward) and the blue-ish filter added to everything that seems so cold and sterile and clean and Prometheus-y most times. In the grand scheme of things, these are minor points, and I am so happy this doesn't seem to be another Engineer movie.

I think it's safe to assume they would have contradicted each other but yea I can live with the wild life being affected by the goo. Hell maybe it is true that David dumps the goo onto the engineers and the world is still in a state of evolution. It would be less than 10 years since the bombing run.

However the thing that I love about it is that the alien in this movie is not only alien to us humans but very much alien to the alien itself. I want the alien to be almost divine but not literally. It's hard to explain without it sounding condescending. The earlier Prometheus concept art had a ceiling clinging alien that dropped into the mouth of an unsuspecting and unconscious person. That is what I wanted to see. The alien looks like us because it was born from us, however on an alien world it wouldn't be surprising if it was completely unrecognizable. The spore pod is a direct take off of that. I like stuff like that.

It's Alien movie. What do you want? If Alien (1979) was made today and you have seen chestburster scene you would probably had said the same.

yes, because if it was made today it would be CG.  Also, you'd never get a script like Alien 1979 off the ground in 2016, and the creative forces behind it would be far far different.  Alien is a classic because of the period it was made, you can't take it out of that time.  You have to have a young and hungry Scott, a broken Dan Obannon, and a fairly unknown giger onboard to make it what it is.  Heavy Metal has to be a hugely popular subculture magazine.  So, yeah, Alien (1979) in 2016 would probably look like a cheap mess.

Oh, and Moebius because Moebius is a f**king genius.

Unrelated; I tried to watch the trailer again.  I hate the song so much I shut it off.  Hopefully next trailer will have score element, because I cannot stand that piece of music.

However the thing that I love about it is that the alien in this movie is not only alien to us humans but very much alien to the alien itself. I want the alien to be almost divine but not literally. It's hard to explain without it sounding condescending. The earlier Prometheus concept art had a ceiling clinging alien that dropped into the mouth of an unsuspecting and unconscious person. That is what I wanted to see. The alien looks like us because it was born from us, however on an alien world it wouldn't be surprising if it was completely unrecognizable. The spore pod is a direct take off of that. I like stuff like that.
That's why I think that Prometheus despite it's flaws is a worthy addition to Alien mythos. Before Prometheus any Alien related content only repeated what was shown in movies e.g. egg->facehugger->chestburster->adult alien. Even if they tried something new, mostly it was ridiculous, like the Newborn or Chet regurgiration. Through Prometheus we were introduced to the black goo which opened up new possibilities like Neomorphs, which doesn't seem contrived, they seem like alternative pathways of evolution instead of messing with original strain of Alien. Previously Alien life cycle seemed to be established and rigid, only deviating in very specific circumstances like A:R queen having additional human DNA due to genetic engineering. Now going to roots and possibly exploring origins of Alien, we have opportunity to introduce new concepts and give the Alien new, suprising elements to its lifecycle without it being out of place.

Harequinade regarding the sex scene, you mean just like Janek decided to have sex with Vickers after she torched one of the crewmembers in Prometheus? Or Shaw who decided to have sex with Holloway right after she was humiliated and started to cry?
That is the definition of odd, but then again that whole film sucked.

Makes Prometheus completely redundant. If there is nothing revealed about the engineer culture. So what happened to Shaw......

Remember there's another 2 films after this.

Is there?  I mean do you have this confirmed?  I also recall this being stated by Ridley Scott a while back, but I couldn't tell if that was just an off-the-cuff remark or not.  Lately, we've just been hearing that there will be 1 more, plus Neil Blomkamp's film.  Do you know this as a fact from a reliable source?
There's going to be 2 more, maybe a 3rd actually.... unless it bombs of course. NB's movie is unlikely to ever happen. I have no qualm proclaiming if it doesn't start production by 2018 it's absolutely dead. Disgustedly enough, NB's aliens is probably the back up plan.

Also, there isn't anything in this trailer that looks cheap. Prometheus might as well be the prologue with A:Covenant being the first act of a quintilogy or more precisely a trilogy with bookends. The rumored 4th film will probably tie straight into Prometheus.

Spoiler
If the alien came from a spore cocoon then that could mean they are a naturally evolving life form who was harvested as a weapon by the engineers. The planet could be paradise and the tree of knowledge may be quite literal, eat from the fruit and attain vast knowledge. The black goo seems capable of this feat. Of course the side effect is the alien.

However there are 2 neomorphs in the movie. The one in the lander and one outside, who then runs into the woods. Who knows when he comes back into the story. We all assume the black alien is the facehugger breed beast.

One thing I have to be honest about, that 4chan leaker must have been bs. Cause how the hell can David drop death and then not land the ship. I don't buy a last minute defense where they shot him down. The mofo crashed on purpose more than anything or at least in a fight with Shaw for the controls.
[close]
I think Ridley told Blomkamp to wait because Ridleys plans could contradict Blomkamps story or vision on the alien.

And the spores i think are simple wildlife flora that has come in contact with the black goo, our first xeno plant :D instead of impregnating other plants/spores with simple flower stuff it impregnates anything that can give birth.
I think it's safe to assume they would have contradicted each other but yea I can live with the wild life being affected by the goo. Hell maybe it is true that David dumps the goo onto the engineers and the world is still in a state of evolution. It would be less than 10 years since the bombing run.

However the thing that I love about it is that the alien in this movie is not only alien to us humans but very much alien to the alien itself. I want the alien to be almost divine but not literally. It's hard to explain without it sounding condescending. The earlier Prometheus concept art had a ceiling clinging alien that dropped into the mouth of an unsuspecting and unconscious person. That is what I wanted to see. The alien looks like us because it was born from us, however on an alien world it wouldn't be surprising if it was completely unrecognizable. The spore pod is a direct take off of that. I like stuff like that.
Remember that beginning on Alien ressurrection with the little xeno bug? i think you call it a ladybug in English.
imagine if the black goo also can infect small insects, what hell it could bring if you pour it out on a field on Earth.

Yes i always had that phantasy before Prometheus when the engineer was still the mysterious space jockey,
so undefined and strange, i thought we would see a whole world of weird things that contradicted our logic and world.
But now Giger is gone and Lindelof leprechaun had its way with Prometheus and Ridley close to becoming a fossil himself,
i doubt we will ever see something so weird again, unless you get a passionate geek director who willl know his way around that universe and stuff.
But maybe the goo David dropped wasnt goo but something that burned the engineers, i think if it was the goo then the engineers should have become even more dangerous to David because of changing into a Fifield thing,
so why would the engineers die from the goo, can too much goo kill you? sounds like a good song for an engineer: too much goo can kill you.
I hope to see something undefined again in the alien universe, like the monolith in space stuff and the space jockey,
shit that is so out of place that its mesmerizing.

There seems to be hope! This looks much better than Prometheus. The kind of Alien film we want may just be here. Will there be more answered questions, instead of just more questions...like with Prometheus? That would be great. But, if this just creates more questions about the Alien's origin, let us all hope it is just being held back for a full reveal and a huge "A-HA!" in the next film Ridley Scott has promised.

Hi, new guy here, big fan of Alien, big time lurker, but now that the new trailer popped I decided to "burst" into the community.

So I've seen the trailer numerous times already and have become quite fond of it, although I had a bittersweet taste in my mouth the first time I laid my eyes upon it this morning. That aside I think its a pretty damn fine trailer, and it did satisfy my hunger for footage and did hype me for the film.

I have read people ranting about a non existent slow-mo sequence in this trailer, you're all saying its slow-mo because the shot is focused on the floating and morphing spore heading into the guy's ear, when you can clearly notice the guy is smoking a cigarette and his motion seems as natural as it can be. So, I guess that's it for all the negativity regarding the "matrix-spore" spore shot.

I do like the shower scene a lot. The creeping shadow of the Alien slowly and silently moving behind the couple is stuff straight out of the '79 Alien film, not to mention the obvious tail between the legs shot. Design wise (Shower scene Alien) it does look very reminiscent of the Big Chap. The tail looks exactly the same, and although you can't quite make out the entire creature (I like that) I made this comparison with a still from the original Alien that shows some similarities with the lower jaw of the "New Chap". Check it out for yourselves bellow.

And the even more funny part is that you are here on a christmas eve grumbling about a movie that looks cheap and you do it,
on a paid internet connection, so whats the difference? blaming others for the same thing you do, only the others will have a fine night at the movie theater, and you? you will go to bed this night and still feeling hatefull and grumbling in your dreams.
And dont forget you pay for all this, all this is for you my son, you paid for this what you are seeing and doing, if i where you i would go somewhere where i would feel nice and have fun, shit i have to pay so it better feel good to me.

QuoteOr Shaw who decided to have sex with Holloway right after she was humiliated and started to cry?

she wanted comfort from her partner after she felt very vulnerable about herself, that and the day she had was quite physically and emotionally stressful i'd think. he didn't humiliate her, he wasn't even speaking of her she made the connection to herself and her insecurities and he immediately apologized.

You seem like Prometheus maybe you can explain the following things;
- Why did Fifield and Milburn get lost despite them being in possession of advanced mapping technology?
- Why couldn't Vickers and Shaw run sideways to avoid the rolling juggernaut?
- How is it possible that Shaw- not only could stand up- but even run around and jump after having her abdominal muscles completely sliced apart?
- Why did Fifield and Milburn freak out when seeing an old corpse but then try to cuddle with an aggressive hissing snake?
- Why did Janek and his co-pilots so quickly decide to crash into the juggernaut without even caring?
- How did Shaw manage to fly the juggernaut?
- Why did she choose to cooperate with David after what he did and how he behaved towards her when she was pregnant?
- Why did Janek open the hangar bay door when something clearly deformed was waiting outside as pictured on the screens?
- How could Holloway possibly be disappointed after the discoveries they made on LV-223?

The 4chan leaks that Hicks have basically vouched for don't say that.
Spoiler
They mention a "protomorph" but we just think that's the writer being a bit confused because the xeno in this movie acts more like an animal than the one in the first film, There's a different 4chan post about David mixing his mechanics with a pro-xenomorph, but that has been debunked.

Scott has said that he wants to eventually get around to showing how the Derelict wound up on LV-426, but that quote is a few years old at this point, and even if that's still his intention, it's highly unlikely he would do something so likely to upset fans as have it turn out to be Shaw.

Yeah, I disagree.  It's garbage to me.  Lousy voice, insipid and boring arrangement.  It's just awful.  It's everything I hate about music in a single go.  It's boring while pretending to be creative and cutting edge.  It's crap people in university used to listen to and think they were edgy.  Completely uninteresting.

Quoteit still doesn't make sense that nobody takes action against Vickers afterwards, it's like nobody cared. I saw this film twice btw but it's been a while.

because its a company-run mission on a company-run ship and its obvious that in space the rules of earth have little meaning. Weyland showed he could order the company mercs to kill effortlessly if he wished and everyone knew holloway was infected its not like it was unprovoked murder.

QuoteYou seem like Prometheus maybe you can explain the following things

i found it underwhelming but still a fine movie. it has plenty of plot holes to pick apart but allot of the "complaints" are just people parroting stuff they heard that could be easily understood if they paid attention to the movie.

QuoteWhy did Fifield and Milburn get lost despite them being in possession of advanced mapping technology?

this is one legit grievance. though what is equally annoying is a quick line a dialogue stating that the storm outside was f**king with the mapping could have been an easy solution to this.

QuoteWhy couldn't Vickers and Shaw run sideways to avoid the rolling juggernaut?

they did both move to the left at one point and the juggernaut follows their path. they are also both extremely distraught and were running on instinct.

QuoteHow is it possible that Shaw- not only could stand up- but even run around and jump after having her abdominal muscles completely sliced apart?

humans have survived and moved around with worse injuries, that and space future drugs kept her functioning. and even then she is visibly in pain pretty much for the rest of the movie, its not like she was acting totally fine afterword. if this is something that is so unbelievable to you you must not like many sci-fi or action movies.

QuoteWhy did Fifield and Milburn freak out when seeing an old corpse but then try to cuddle with an aggressive hissing snake?

only milburn wanted anything to do with it, not fifield. and this is another legit complaint though it could have been more accepted if milburn was smoking some of fifield's weed. i can accept goofy biologist gets high and thinks he's an alien snake charmer.

QuoteWhy did Janek and his co-pilots so quickly decide to crash into the juggernaut without even caring?
im pretty sure they did care about their lives, they just know from what they've seen on the planet that if that ship was going to earth everything would die and they thought their lives were a small price to pay to protect earth. again watching the movie should have answered this one for you.

QuoteHow did Shaw manage to fly the juggernaut?
with help from david, he even said so. he'd been learning engineer tech through the whole movie, again you really need to rewatch before asking this stuff.

QuoteWhy did she choose to cooperate with David after what he did and how he behaved towards her when she was pregnant?
as opposed to what? starving or asphyxiating on a planet with nothing but a the deacon for company?

QuoteWhy did Janek open the hangar bay door when something clearly deformed was waiting outside as pictured on the screens?

he didn't open the door the guy in the garage was the one who did it.

QuoteHow could Holloway possibly be disappointed after the discoveries they made on LV-223?

he wanted answers and all he found were corpses. he wanted live aliens. its not hard to see why he was disappointed though he does come off as spoiled.

I've seen people say this on the board all day, how the hell can you guys tell? It's so dark that the only clear glimpse of an Alien I got was the Facehugger, which looked fine.

I could only just make out the Alien hand on the shower screen and it looks creepy, long fingers scare the crap out of me.

Your comment instantly reminded me of a Father Ted episode, haha.

As for the trailer, it's passable. It's obvious that Fox's initial marketing strategy is to explicitly spell out what this film is going to deliver after Prometheus' pretty confusing campaign. Facehugger? Check. Alien? Check. Blood? Double check. I'm hoping they'll reign things in considerably after this teaser and deliver a little more on tone and atmosphere. I really think they need to give a little more of an insight into the premise too. A lot of people on many comment boards seem to think this is a reboot, or at the very least completely ignoring Prometheus.

King ghedoora oh ok but it still doesn't make sense that nobody takes action against Vickers afterwards, it's like nobody cared. I saw this film twice btw but it's been a while.
You seem like Prometheus maybe you can explain the following things;
- Why did Fifield and Milburn get lost despite them being in possession of advanced mapping technology?

The map is on the ship. They rely on Janek for directions, and he was busy helping the people actually doing their job. When the storm hit it was too late for them to leave anyway.

Quote
- Why couldn't Vickers and Shaw run sideways to avoid the rolling juggernaut?

Shaw rolls sideways and still almost dies. Vickers is a stubborn bitch who never changes course in the entire movie, it was a fitting death for her. Also, I highly doubt most people would be thinking logically in a situation like that.

Quote
- How is it possible that Shaw- not only could stand up- but even run around and jump after having her abdominal muscles completely sliced apart?

Yeah, that was BS. Future Space painkiller and healing tech?

Quote
- Why did Fifield and Milburn freak out when seeing an old corpse but then try to cuddle with an aggressive hissing snake?
Fifield has spent the whole movie trying to ingratiate himself to Millburn. When the dude is stoned and scared out of his mind, Fifield sees a chance to use his biologist powers to impress his new friend.

Quote
- Why did Janek and his co-pilots so quickly decide to crash into the juggernaut without even caring?
Janek knew everything was going south and that they had stumbled upon something incredibly dangerous; he told Shaw as much. When he saw a giant alien ship filled with the horrible terror goo taking off, he did his duty to stop it.

Quote
- How did Shaw manage to fly the juggernaut?
David is pretty adept at handling Engineer tech.

Quote
- Why did she choose to cooperate with David after what he did and how he behaved towards her when she was pregnant?
She didn't have much of a choice.

Quote
- Why did Janek open the hangar bay door when something clearly deformed was waiting outside as pictured on the screens?
I never really considered that.

Quote
- How could Holloway possibly be disappointed after the discoveries they made on LV-223?
He didn't want to make an amazing archaeological discovery. He wanted to talk to God.

After the response the trailer has received, I wish they just went and made a full-fledged Prometheus 2.

Cant believe what the negative nancies are crying about with this trailer. What the f**k are you expecting? Fox wanted to get across the fact that this is scary, intense and has aliens in it. Because thats what us fanboys want, isnt it? Waaaa too much cg, waaaa a shower scene. I cant believe some you are comparing the vibe of that scene to avpr. Are you f**king kidding me? Ridley could make a better movie than that piece of shit with his left nut. Waaa its too much like prometheus, waaa its too much like alien... Its tiny clips of the movie, give it the benefit of the doubt. You want this franchise to keep going, give it your money, no matter what you think of the first teaser.

Not everyone can be pleased. Some people want this and others want that and not everything can be crammed into one movie.

I am personally really pleased with what I saw and am super pumped to see the movie. I have no expectations though because that's another road to disappointment if they're not met. Just go in there expecting to see a film set in the Alien universe, it's the only way to be sure...

I don't get the hate either, Alien Covenant is a direct response to the criticism of Prometheus and a ton of Alien fanservice, a chance to fix the issues with the first film and also tie it into the legendary Alien film, and in the process bringing the Xenos back. I could never have imagined that people would complain about a 2 minute trailer. Wow...

Fortunately I'm super excited to see what Ridley brings to the table now that the hype job Lindelof is "lost"

Still reserving full judgement until I see more, but there was a lot to like; the Möbius inspired costume designs and Daniels' helmet and head gear look great and retro, perhaps my favourite element thus far. I get the feeling each death will one up each other, as well, so as far as body horror is concerned it looks like it'll put all else before it to shame.
The shot of David and Weyland in that big white room is some damn fine composition, and those aerial shots, superb. I'm loving the more retro bridge design on the dropship, a nice mash up of Alien and Aliens there.
Shower scene will most likely be foreshadowed earlier in the film as it seems like a decontamination area, so I'm waiting for more context, but I don't mind a few unpretentious 80s slasher tropes my self.   
It's not a perfect trailer, but it's far better for the film itself to be better than the trailer, and it won't be the last trailer.
The trailer for The Martian didn't exactly blow me away either, so leave that for the finished film itself I say.

My issue is mostly with the trailer itself. The trailer for Prometheus did an excellent job of creating a sense of rising tension. You get a sense of the growing mystery and discovery and dread -- more than the finished film, as far as I'm concerned. It was a really good piece of advertising.

This trailer starts with a gory kill and then throws as many flashes of action and "horror" at you as it can. It feels like it was outsourced to a company that specialises in slasher movie trailers. It advertises the film as a largely mindless series of death scenes strung together on a thin plot.

I was expecting a better-edited trailer that created an actual sense of tension. Alien's trailer nailed this, Prometheus' trailer nailed this, so it wasn't much to ask for this to follow suit. It didn't.

There are flashes in it I really like, but every piece of footage they showed surrounding the Aliens and neomorphs and what have you lacked any sense of imagination or creativity. It portrays the film as bottom-of-the-barrel sci fi horror and that's really disappointing. Monster shows up, snarls, blood, next scene.

Arguably, that's how Alien goes, too -- but that's not how the trailer showed it. It showed it as an intense, claustrophobic nightmare and left the generic aspects of the story to the film itself. So I have hope for Covenant the movie, but no love for Covenant the trailer.

You can never please everyone & that's just how things are.

It is interesting to see so much criticism about the shower scene;  I think it will end up as one of most memorable, not just from Covenant but across Alien franchise.   Real horrors are not seen yet though;  they will start once they enter David' "chamber of horrors" in 2nd part of movie, of which we still know very little.  In particular what really happened with Shaw

I think some of the problem comes from hardcore 'ALIENS' fans that are disappointed that Scott shunted Blomkamp's Grand Return of the Indomitable Ripley into the nether regions of production postponement. 

These people desperately want a retcon of 'ALIEN 3' and 'ALIEN: Resurrection'.  Nothing Scott or anyone else does will make them happy until that happens. 

I refer to them as 'The Boohoo Brigade'.   

By the way, I'm loving what this movie has to offer so far.

This is a discussion board, not an echo chamber. Some people won't like what others love. That's half the fun, it creates a conversation. Trying to shut the opposing side up by writing them off as either sycophants or haters is childish.

There seem to be a lot of Prometheus fans upset that they didn't get a direct sequel, and as many Alien fans are upset that it feels like a slasher movie. You've got the people who really want the Blommkamp thing to happen (even though it will anyway). A ton of people disappointed with Prometheus are writing it off because they don't want to be "fooled" again. People sick of reboots are decrying it. Reddit doesn't know what to think, Facebook seems nonplussed, 4chan loathes it. Some people are saying it even looks fake and cheap, which is insane.

I personally loved the trailer but the whole reaction has just put a damper on my hype.

Disappointing.

It has always been that way since I joined back in 2007 before Requiem came out. With each new movie people get excited and want to hear all the good things about it. I knew all this inner quarreling would start sometime. I also didn't get the vibe that you were 'hating' on anything either.

You some some fair points, and i agree with you on the second prometheus trailer, its paints a better than the finished film for sure. You might not agree with how it was put together, but keep in mind, the second trailer is sure to better and longer, also this is surely a response from fox to the prometheus criticism. You gotta look at the bigger picture and take it for what it is to an extent, also have faith in Ridley Scott, he wants to return his movie back to glory, surely if anybody can, its him

What exactly is a Prometheus fan? Someone who doesn't like ALIEN(S) but does like PROMETHEUS? ALIEN(S) fans who like PROMETHEUS best?

Its seem trivial. The movie is a sequel to Prometheus. Its just being branded as ALIEN because it hits closer to "home" than Prometheus did.

If delivered the right way Covenant will have the best of both worlds and should be terrific. I trust in Ser Ridley's directing skills, I think its just a matter if the script was good and if he doesn't over edit it.

The like\dislike ratio isn't as important as word of mouth and buzz IMHO, and the comments are filled with endless complaining. Right now the discussion around Covenant is mixed which can quickly turn toxic, which is concerning since the continuation of this story and potentially the Blommkamp film will be hanging in the balance. And make no mistake, there are people who would be interested in memeing this film into failure for fun.

I feel that if they released this trailer a few weeks ago as a total surprise, the reaction would be very different. Heck, with how stressed and frustrated people have been this year maybe it would have been a better idea to wait until January when people are refreshed for the new year.

Liked it. Not super bothered about trailers though. Have seen trailers I didn't like for films I liked and vice versa. Mostly I'm just in on the idea of another Alien film and seeing if I enjoy it or not. You could put out a supercut of concept art soundtracked by a short interview with Ridley Scott explaining the premise and I'd be like "cool. hmu when it comes out k".

It's not Christmas here anymore in the UK (AM on boxing day) but Merry Christmas to everyone all the same. Try not to argue with one another. I understand that when someone talks negatively about something you like (or vice versa) that it's easy to feel 'threatened' in a sense. I feel it too all the time. Important thing to do is to react appropriately. If they've phrased it in a dickish way then politely tell them to be a bit more cordial. If they've written it in a level-headed way then just take it on board and move on, or have a discussion about it. A nice, normal discussion. You get the level of discourse that you deserve.

Fox Marketing Exec #1:  "when should we release a major movie trailer featuring hideous monsters shredding up the crew of a space ship when people need it the least?"

Fox Marketing Exec #2:   "How about Christmas?"

Fox Marketing Exec #1:  "Excellent idea!  No one needs any more of that 'Joy to the World' and 'Goodwill to All' stuff on Christmas Day as much as they need a gory scary ALIEN trailer.  Let's do it!"

Seriously, though, why release an 'ALIEN' trailer of all things on Christmas Day?  I just don't get it...

Definitely a good time to release it on Christmas day. think about it, families get together everyone's having fun around the dinner table people showing off the new gadgets and talking about the latest showbiz news ect ect. I've shown at least 2 people who would not of known about Covenant because of celebrating xmas dinner today. If it was just regular day the won't of seen it this soon.

I liked it, it's something quite different from what we've usually got. It's simple and straightforward and you can tell it really has just one purpose. It's not there to collect ores or to transport troops and carry huge ship weaponry, it's just there to take people to new worlds and make them home. It doesn't need much complexity to its design. The long length allows it to carry not only the terraforming equipment but the huge amounts of colonists it'll need to take to the new world.

If the comment here proved anything, its that one should NEVER listen to fan opinion. Fans hated "Prometheus" because it didn't tie itself closely enough to Alien? Now fans are hating this trailer because it is too "Alien" and not enough "Prometheus"? What the hell? Illogical and irrarional. But of course, these so-called fans will never admit their opinion is WRONG.

I am rooting for this film to be a triumph. Just to piss those here who brush it aside.

Looks very long and flat. I think the long corridors might show us some nightmarish horror when in the dark. Like can you imagine, your at one end of the corridor and at the other end you can see a strange penis head looking humanoid, shaped silhouette in the very far background just standing there looking back at you.? Or even worse your in the middle of one of the long arse corridors and a xeno and a Neomorph are coming slowly towards you from either end of the corridors why your in the middle.

This trailer doesn't look cheap to me, it looks like gritty European scifi.  I know some of you expect more Hollywood polish, but I'm really happy with this direction.  The best movies in the franchise are very low tech (Alien 3 is almost medieval).

I also don't think it looks cheap. However, I do think rather cheap tricks are being used e.g. shower scene. In fact, I would say it needs to be more gritty. It still feels cold, crisp and clinical in places. (Maybe the blue tinted filter is to blame) where it maybe shouldn't. Although Id draw a line at Alien 3 levels of grittiness which were just too dire and insufferable to keep me glued to the screen.

Rarely and barely a hair is out of place on the Covenant actors. Clothing seems neatly ironed and unstained. Makeup and complexion blemish-free. For David or lab scenes this works just like the Ash/lab scenes. But not for others.

Im being really picky now, but it somehow matters. And its not like Ridley isn't CAPABLE of delivering greatness, so minute attention to detail does kinda matter once a tight and gripping script has been successfully pulled off.

I will never understand the fanboy's capacity to 'know' a whole movie based on a trailer. Actually judging acting based on one line.

On a different forum, so idiot was actually complaining that this movie won't answer any of the questions from Prometheus. How can you f***ing know?? This was two minutes of footage from a movie that's gonna be about 2 hours long...... Were you guys honestly expecting all the answers in those two minutes?

Is the ship that is seen exploding in the trailer the Covenant or a drop ship of the Covenant? If we assume that the flat ship is the convenant, then it's quite obvious that the exploding ship is not the covenant. If we assume that the exploding ship is a drop ship of the covenant, then we need some expanation for the seen showing the flat ship cruising over a lake. This means that the crew of the falt ship need not rely on a drop ship to get them on the ground. Could it be that this flat ship we are shown at the begining of the trailer is driven be a entirely different (may be even non-human) crew?

Only guessing but I think the lander is attached to the front of the long ship - kinda like the Nostromo toes the refinery.

There are two ways to view the new trailer... 1) With a technical eye on how a trailer is constructed/edited and how those technical choices elicit excitement/anticipation for the film. 2) A simple visual insight into the film itself...

In terms of approach 1 - yes, it's a trailer designed to highlight action and horror. Is it a superbly edited trailer? Apart from the first few shots I'd say it's a very averagely put together one (from a technical perspective), but that shouldn't be automatically viewed as a reflection on the film itself. Yes, it's certainly a generic trailer... However, in terms of approach 2 - we, the audience (and Alien fans), are getting our first real glimpse of the aesethtics of the film. It's certainly a lavish production and is seemingly going to be tonally darker, more claustrophobic, grittier and closer to the aesthetic of the original than Prometheus was. Other than that it's difficult to get a real sense of how succesfull the plot, pacing will be (the acting seems perfectly fine based on the trailer) or how 'scary' it will actually be. And my initial reaction is that the first few shots of the character trapped in the room with the back burster is infinitely more scary than anything in Prometheus, Aliens Versus Predator, Alien Requiem and Alien 3... which bodes well for the film. We'll see.

The trailer has some nice bits.

It's also got a few issues. I think the editing is a big problem here. They're showing too much too soon. I actually really like the track. I do think it fits the tone of things. Big beef here is that, especially now with our ability to stop and analyze everything, they really should have not shown the deaths. We know who get's it and when pretty succinctly now. It would have been much better to focus on reactions, and the beautiful visuals. Keep the cheap thrills for the movie.

I feel like it would have worked better for a trailer that emphasized David and the more Prometheus elements of the story. When you're using a song that is pointedly referencing David in an ad that's all about the aliens, it creates a weird disconnect where the music choice is both on the nose and totally inappropriate. It doesn't help that the timing was unlucky in that people are finally sick of the sad husky-voiced lady doing a song cover trend in trailers and are taking out their frustration on this one.

And yeah, it does spoil a bit too much. I personally don't mind because the I spoiled the whole movie for myself already, but it reeks of overcompensating due to people's confusion with the tone and plot of Prometheus. This one is SCARY and it has XENOMORPHS and it plays out HOW YOU'D EXPECT.

Anybody noticed that the clicking sound heard during the shower sequence when the tail is coming up is actually taken from the '79 Alien film?

Thought it was a decent enough trailer overall. Thing that bugged me the most about it was the whole "not wearing a helmet on an alien planet" nonsense that was also one of the niggles about Prometheus. Not going to read too much into the film based on a two minute trailer. Aliens is the best film in the series, but the trailer for that was terrible...

Well we don't really know the context. If the crew of the Covenant have been in communication with David, if they've received a message, then they may have good reason for not wearing space suits on the surface. Clearly it's a bit of a mistake on their part, but it does appear they may have been tricked by David...

I suspect everyone who hates the trailer is still gonna see it (i dislike the vibe but I am still going because that is what i do).  Just, for myself I know I am not going to the midnight screening this time around.  I'll still catch it opening weekend but I'm not gonna be first in line.

Agreed. I thought it was a good trailer. Prometheus was shrouded in mystery and "is it or isn't it?" so the trailer was a thing of beauty. This is not meant to have that same impact because we know it's both a sequel to Prometheus and a more direct prequel to Alien.

Also - this shower scene insanity. It's clearly the way it's cut for the trailer. I highly doubt in an intense, dark Ridley Scott film he inserted a cliched, throwaway sex in the shower death scene for kicks. Context is everything.

I also think Hicks is onto something when he says this is mainly from the first act. Matches what I've heard/read.

Regarding the trailer being released on Christmas Day, my opinion is that this is no coincidence, and if you all remember, the Prometheus crew first entered the pyramid on Christmas Day.

Charlie Holloway: Captain, would you please tell the survey to suit up and meet us in the airlock.
Janek: There's only six hours left of daylight. Why don't you leave it till the morning.
Charlie Holloway: No, no, no. It's Christmas, captain, and I want to open my presents.

If that is mixed in then its impossible that it looks like an Alien reboot.
Bit of an unnecessary response there.

In contrast to the many here, I think trailer is well made.

On first part we are witnessing the horror scenes that are typical part of all Alien movies. And because we already know (and accordingly expect) that, there is no need to mask it in some kind of suspense attempt to make events in the movie more exciting. This is only a frame for more important, second part of trailer - introduction of  David/Walter through the song "Nature Boy", which metaphorically describes him with peaceful, melancholic tone as "...a very strange enchanted boy..." who is "...wandered very far... a little shy and sad of eye...but very wise...". As contrast to that song, we are visually introduced to whole bunch of horrifying events, what suggests us that he is somehow connected to all that savagery at "the end of his journey".

So with that combination of cold melancholic chant as "introduction" of David and horror visuals, trailer shifts nicely the tension of the movie from typical horror elements of Alien to sinister but perhaps consequently logical reasoning of one "very strange enchanted" character who seems to have his own agenda despite terrifying consequences this agenda might have.

This looks like a pre-sequel that fits, and its ironic that the trailer seems to be a reaction to the confusion that Prometheus delivered - most people who watch this will want what an Alien franchise should deliver; scares thrills and a bodycount - doesn't mean that Ridley will be holding back on more mysteries, - but he's figured that, in the short term, mystery in the trailer doesn't put bums on seats on the opening weekend, but hey, once you're there popcorn in trembling hand, he can deliver his mysteries in his own sweet time.

I'm all for this, can't wait to see what happens in May.

Doesn't mean we want to know how and when people get killed. Crudup is the THIRD billed cast member and we saw him get facehugged lol.

Doesn't mean he'll be dead - David may have means to vaccinate him from an incubating egg, or a way to remove it.

Re-itterating that we can disagree with others sentiments without taking to insulting them. No need for it at all. Hicks.

Very true... Most people going into the cinema to see Alien first time around knew what was going to happen to John Hurt's character. If anything, that awareness of basic plot points/scenes only increased the suspense/anticipation. I think this is what we're getting here...

Prometheus had the most clout behind it since Aliens though. Anticipation was fever pitch, it was Ridley Scott's first sci-fi since Blade Runner, it's connections to Alien at release were LOOSE therefor it didn't suffer from franchise fatigue, I'm taking a guess but I'm pretty sure it had the most expensive marketing campaign of all the films. So it's harder to measure it's "success" against the other movies.

Besides, I imagine Fox have done their research. They're backing Alien the brand over Prometheus the brand.

Those are not main characters. In Alien movies you got 2-3 main characters. Excluding David (main antagonist) in my opinion those are: Walter, Waterston and McBride. That's all. The rest is expendable.

i really hope that Ridley sticks to his word and keeps the philosophical depth of Prometheus in this film! the questions Prometheus posed are what made me fall in love with the movie so much. Posing deeper religious questions without making them sound hokey or offensive is a very difficult thing to do and Ridley did it EXTREMELY well in Prometheus!

MINOR spoilers
Spoiler

Was watching a Katherine Waterson interview. She revealed that the group of people that are aboard the ship are going to the planet to colonize it. Each of them has a soulmate/significant other aboard the ship and therefor there "objective" would be to reproduce in order to populate the planet. Thought I'd pass this along for those that thought the scene was completely out of place, though I still don't like it being in the trailer. Should make sense in the movie, I suppose.

It's just silly for two people to start f**king when there's an active crisis. Even in the immediate wake of a crisis. It just doesn't seem a natural reaction.

In Aliens, the flirtation between Hicks and Ripley is so subtle and mostly under-the-radar. "It doesn't mean we're engaged or anything." "I want to introduce you to a personal friend of mine." There's low-level innuendo. But they were never dumb enough to slip away and start banging while Newt was asleep or something.

I am glad I wasn't the only one who thought that. It definitely reminds me of the Engineer's robes and hoods from the beginning of Prometheus and in that deleted scene with the Elders. They all wore something that looked like that, same look and even materials if I remember it right.

Maybe... then again, we don't know where that scene takes place in the movie - if it does at all. It may have been shot specifically for promotional content.  We might not see it in the movie at all.

On the other hand, it may just as easily be the final scene in 'ALIEN: Covenant'.  The movie could be in its closing stages when this happens.  All the mayhem is over and these 2 have gotten off the planet, apparently safely.  They decide to celebrate their hard won victory by engaging in some shower lovin' aboard the Covenant.  Then Big Ol' Smily pops up and says "BOO!" End of Movie.  Roll the credits. 

Honestly, is it outside the question the Alien will sneak aboard the ship at the end?  It's a trope in this series.  We've been told it appears at the end of the movie.  I've got no problem with if its' treated as a cliff hanger.  It would make for a welcome change having the Alien survive at the end of one of these movies; and take what's almost a cliche and use it as an impetus to open up a sequel. 

How would that be?  Waiting for 2 years, knowing that the Covenant is still in orbit around Paradise with an unknown number of survivors on board and one of those things pacing its hallways?  I would actually like that as a cliffhanger...

Either way, yes.  Context is important for a sex scene.

Regarding the trailer being released on Christmas Day, my opinion is that this is no coincidence, and if you all remember, the Prometheus crew first entered the pyramid on Christmas Day.

Charlie Holloway: Captain, would you please tell the survey to suit up and meet us in the airlock.
Janek: There's only six hours left of daylight. Why don't you leave it till the morning.
Charlie Holloway: No, no, no. It's Christmas, captain, and I want to open my presents.

Coincidence? I think not!  :)
I was under the impression that was a joke. He was saying he was excited like a kid on Christmas eve, not that it was literally Christmas.

No, it was literally Christmas.

Rogue One was far more "memberBerry" than The Force Awakens. Although The Force Awakens hit most of the same notes as A New Hope, Rogue One was blatant full frontal nostalgic pornography. I'm still trying to figure out which film is worse. They're both pretty awful. I bet George Lucas is secretly laughing his ass off at how bad Disney is messing up Star Wars. Say what you will about the prequels, but the story/plot and action sequences were extremely unique. Disney has gotten the original trilogy aesthetic down, but both films are extremely hollow. The actors are all seemingly winking at the camera for two hours. But alas, enough with Disney's abomination.

I see a lot of people grumbling about AVP:R. Does anyone actually believe Scott would deliver a film like AVP:R? Even though I get some enjoyment out AVP:R, Scott is in a league of his own when it comes to visual storytelling. Scott is a master, and although it looks like he had to compromise with Fox on some of the decisions ( putting the alien back in the film ), he's not going to film a crap script in this saga. I realize that Prometheus wasn't perfect, and that its script has gotten quite a bit of criticism, but it wasn't that bad. Honestly. It wasn't. This is just my opinion, obviously, but anyone thinking Convenant will be on a quality level of AVP:R needs to take a deep breath and relax. It's going to be much better, especially on a technical level. :)

If this is the movie where the Alien is indeed created, and it is a prequel or pre-prequel to Alien, then the Alien MUST survive the movie, or at least provide offspring before it goes out.  I too would like to see an alternate ending in the Alien Franchise.

The eggs 'surviving' after the first one was the impetus for the second.

Oh wow comparing rogue one to a new trilogy is all kinds of fail. Rogue one is attached to the old trilogy that's why it fits in.

Force awakens is supposed to be  new trilogy but shamessly attaches itself to old trilogy, screwing over fans that expected something new.

Rogue One is the best SW movie since Empire strikes back, no goddamn cute muppet teddy-bears defeating the Empire or Jar jar or Mary sue Rey.
I can't take you seriously when u compare Rogue One (have u even seen it?) to Force Awakens...

That you have so much un-called faith for Ridley after Prometheus is ridiculous...skepticism is legitimate.

Yes, I have seen Rogue One. I didn't care for it. And it is comparable to The Force Awakens in the context we're referring to. Not only is it the second film from Disney, it's littered with references to the original trilogy. References that serve no other purpose other than to wink at the audience. Both films from Disney do this, but Rogue One goes far and beyond what is necessary. Hey, if you liked it, great, but don't act like the two films have nothing in common. And yes, I'm giving Scott the benefit of the doubt because he directed the original film in this saga, and he just directed Prometheus, which is at least the third best film in the saga ( in my opinion ). I can't take anyone seriously when they start comparing Scott's work to that of the brothers Strause. That's nonsense. People can hate on Prometheus all they want, but at least it wasn't the same recycled trash we've been getting from the Alien series ( and AVP ) for over a decade. If anyone actually believes that Covenant is going to be on the same level of film making as AVP:R, I just don't know what to tell them.

It's a sequel/prequel in an established franchise. If you seek different elements of story devices, either in writing or on set production etc we live in a universe where we have the luxury of thousands of other franchises which tell other stories.

I'm glad to know that the movie is not going to shy away from being bloody and gory when it needs to be. Not saying that it should be filled with it to the gills, but the Alien universe ain't no PG-13 and I'm glad they didn't cut it down to size.

Fox Marketing Exec #1:  "when should we release a major movie trailer featuring hideous monsters shredding up the crew of a space ship when people need it the least?"

Fox Marketing Exec #2:   "How about Christmas?"

Fox Marketing Exec #1:  "Excellent idea!  No one needs any more of that 'Joy to the World' and 'Goodwill to All' stuff on Christmas Day as much as they need a gory scary ALIEN trailer.  Let's do it!"

Seriously, though, why release an 'ALIEN' trailer of all things on Christmas Day?  I just don't get it...

I can't believe you're the only one who's voiced this so far.  I took the time to read this thread from the beginning.  Releasing this type of thing on Christmas Day to take advantage of a Christian holiday is an insult to Christianity.  It was very tasteless to release the trailer on Christmas.  As much as I think this is a marketing decision, I also get the sense that Scott has a bit of a disdain for Christianity.

It's a shame that it reveals a few dead, but absolutely nothing about the story that interests me (the two david, engineers, terraforming, shaw ...)which is probably a good thing!

Ok, I have to mention the song in the trailer.  It's called Nature Boy, and while it was sung by Aurora, it's originally a Nat King Cole tune from the '40's.  The full lyrics are below, and I wonder if the latter part of the song is not more in tune with humanity's ultimate purpose.  The notion that "love" may be our main purpose for existence, may in fact be something that is intentionally going to be explored here.

There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he

And then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me
The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return

The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return

Also, wasn't this song in another trailer recently about a kid who has monsters in his life?  I can't remember for the life of me what that film was called.  Anyone?

It was actually written by Eden Ahbez

Yeah, I wasn't happy with it either but for different reasons. I didn't think it would get much exposure at that time when people are busy with other stuff. I can see why they've done it. Christmas is pretty slow for news, nothing much gets posted. So this trailer is going to stay on the frontpage of many news sites for the entire holidays. It's just like releasing AvPR on Christmas Day and playing into the whole Christmas theme with the silent night trailers they did.

They landed around Christmas, or Cuddles was born on Christmas, and the movie ends on New Year's Day. Janek says, "It's Christmas" the day they wake up, and Holloway says "It's Christmas and I want to open my presents" right before they explore the ruins for the first time. But you are mostly correct that Prometheus has a Christmas theme and setting. It's one of the great unconventional Christmas classics, like Die Hard and Eyes Wide Shut.

Not too impressed by the trailer, to be honest. The intro was awful, looked like some amateur shot that scene. The rest looked good. Alot of Prometheus and Aliens callbacks, but that was to be expected. FX looked decent, but not too happy about the color palette, everything´s a bit too dark and bit too teal colored IMO. And that shower scene, oh my.... better not talk about it.

Maybe it´s just a badly cut trailer and it actually turns out to be a decent/good movie after all. We´ll see.

Rogue One was far more "memberBerry" than The Force Awakens. Although The Force Awakens hit most of the same notes as A New Hope, Rogue One was blatant full frontal nostalgic pornography. I'm still trying to figure out which film is worse. They're both pretty awful. I bet George Lucas is secretly laughing his ass off at how bad Disney is messing up Star Wars. Say what you will about the prequels, but the story/plot and action sequences were extremely unique. Disney has gotten the original trilogy aesthetic down, but both films are extremely hollow. The actors are all seemingly winking at the camera for two hours. But alas, enough with Disney's abomination.

I see a lot of people grumbling about AVP:R. Does anyone actually believe Scott would deliver a film like AVP:R? Even though I get some enjoyment out AVP:R, Scott is in a league of his own when it comes to visual storytelling. Scott is a master, and although it looks like he had to compromise with Fox on some of the decisions ( putting the alien back in the film ), he's not going to film a crap script in this saga. I realize that Prometheus wasn't perfect, and that its script has gotten quite a bit of criticism, but it wasn't that bad. Honestly. It wasn't. This is just my opinion, obviously, but anyone thinking Convenant will be on a quality level of AVP:R needs to take a deep breath and relax. It's going to be much better, especially on a technical level. :)
Amen brother... totally with you on all that (although I enjoyed Rogue One much more than The Force Awakens). Alien:Covenant will be a couple of notches above most sci-fi/horror films at a minimum...

If Alien Covenant is a good/well made film, audiences will watch it regardless of any on-line opinions. No worries there. If it's a turkey, then it's a turkey... but that will be as a result of the film rather than fan reaction to a trailer...

I actually hated the religious aspect of Shaw's character.  In the very beginning of Prometheus the only evidence she presents in the movie for their expedition is the star map, and that 'she believes'.  She also backs dumb statements later on without evidence, like 'they created us', 'its a weapons facility'.

The worst part about the movie is that it indulges her by being right.  Any self respecting scientist knows to withhold belief before compelling evidence can be presented.  I could go on all day about Prometheus's anti-science agenda but I won't since its not a Prometheus thread.

You're doing a fantastically good job of grumbling. Don't stop please. The funniest thing is that you are gonna pay a ticket to see this "cheap" film in cinema.

I thought I'd already commented on this and I've not read ahead in the thread yet so apologies if another mod has already chipped in but let's chill out please. It's quite clear this trailer has been quite divisive. Let's not take to insulting those who don't have an opinion you agree with. You discuss it maturely. I wont have immature bickering here.

There's actually no evidence, even in the leaks, that
Spoiler
David in any way creates the xenomorphs, much less that the Derelict from the original film will wind up being he and Shaw.
[close]

Spoiler
Have you seen all 4chan leaks? One said the classic alien is biomechanical because David mixed his android dna or whatever I have no idea what it meant with the neomorphs that are "flesh" aliens, thus making the classic alien.
Ridley said the Prometheus sequels would lead to Alien and explain the origins of the aliens. How else could those movies lead to Alien? I think he meants he wants to explain how the ship from LV-426 crashed and how the aliens there were created.
I dont believe 100% in that, there are a lots of trolls in 4chan and they might change things until the final release.[a/spoiler]
[close]
The 4chan leaks that Hicks have basically vouched for don't say that.
Spoiler
They mention a "protomorph" but we just think that's the writer being a bit confused because the xeno in this movie acts more like an animal than the one in the first film, There's a different 4chan post about David mixing his mechanics with a pro-xenomorph, but that has been debunked.

Scott has said that he wants to eventually get around to showing how the Derelict wound up on LV-426, but that quote is a few years old at this point, and even if that's still his intention, it's highly unlikely he would do something so likely to upset fans as have it turn out to be Shaw.
[close]

There was another 4chan guy claiming that there was like a Waltermorph or some crap that Scified ran. That guy was definitely a load of crap.

I actually really like the track.
I feel like it would have worked better for a trailer that emphasized David and the more Prometheus elements of the story. When you're using a song that is pointedly referencing David in an ad that's all about the aliens, it creates a weird disconnect where the music choice is both on the nose and totally inappropriate. It doesn't help that the timing was unlucky in that people are finally sick of the sad husky-voiced lady doing a song cover trend in trailers and are taking out their frustration on this one.

And yeah, it does spoil a bit too much. I personally don't mind because the I spoiled the whole movie for myself already, but it reeks of overcompensating due to people's confusion with the tone and plot of Prometheus. This one is SCARY and it has XENOMORPHS and it plays out HOW YOU'D EXPECT.

We're on the same brain-wave there. I agree with pretty much everything you just said in that post.

one thing i REALLY like about the trailer is that it shys away from revealing any of the actual "details" that were all craving... rather the questions we want answered from Prometheus! the trailer just really showed the obvious: Neomorph back bursting, spore based accelerant, the crash landed ship from Prometheus, the facehugger and, last but not least, the proto-xeno.

We still get to wait for all the juicy details like... what happened to Shaw? what happened during the trip to "Paradise"? how did David get his head back on? answers to what exactly is going on in Davids lab (leaked photos)? what the 2nd Neomorph (or 3rd or 4th) will look like? How did David go about creating the Neomoprhs? how different the proto-Xenos will look (super long hand digits in trailer)? what the hell happened to all of the Engineers on the planet (again, leaked photos)? etc etc etc

Im still convined that the trailer is really only events that unfold during the first 45 minutes of the film (something tells me total run time is AT LEAST 2 hours and 15 minutes to 2 hours and 45 minutes if were lucky)

Actually I think the treatment was loosely based around Peter Brigg's version of his Aliens vs Predator screenplay, but only modernized. This is from an old interview when the first AvP was released.

MR: DISGUSTING: So now, obviously, (your AVP draft) will never happen?



PETER BRIGGS: Strangely enough, I was told recently by an exec that Fox might still be interested in doing it, with a bit of reworking. I don't know about that. I think its thunder's been totally blown. Now, I'd sooner write a standalone "Alien" or "Predator" movie, personally. In fact, in '99 -- I think - I went into Joel Silver's and pitched a "Predator" movie set in the 18th Century, but both franchises were in a state of panic-stricken flux then, so....

I also don't think it's safe to assume that just because Shaw wears her father's cross and believes in God that she is a Christian

in fact ..... everything she says and does in prometheus suggest that she actually has a different set of beliefs ........... stating that she chooses her own beliefs alone suggests that her faith lies elsewhere........

I can't recall the exact scene, but was it a perfect match? Or 90 something percent? Because from what I remember, they seemed to be comparing the DNA samples and when they matched them, they were very similar but with very small differences.

Regardless, the Engineers are definitely very closely related to us no doubt.

Title: Re: Alien: Covenant Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: SM on Dec 28, 2016, 03:56:47 AM
Hard to tell.  It simply says "Match" which is probably 99.9 something to account for things like skin colour and height (and possibly accelerant corruption).  Perhaps.  I don't know that much about genetics.

Post by: The Alien Predator on Dec 28, 2016, 04:07:46 AM
I agree, it's most likely 99,9% as they appear more similar to us than Chimps and Neanderthals do. But some of their differences may separate them from us like their odd eyes and as you said, any accelerant corruptions.

The search for God is a major theme in Prometheus.

If we assume that the Engineers had a hand in creating us humans, the question is then are they our God(s) or did God(s) allow the Engineer to create us or provided the means. Is God(s) acting through the Engineers the same as God creating us?

Shaw is most definitely a Christian. She probably believes in an ancient alien theory of some sort that a sentient being from another planet thousands of years ago planted the seeds and then stood by to grow the seeds to make sure that humans came about. Would that not be close enough to the biblical Judeo/Christian/Muslim God?

My reading of Prometheus (or the Shaw element) was that it was about how faith/beliefs can get tested... and how scientific discovery can in fact affirm and strengthen those faiths/beliefs rather than undermine them. It's circular...

Scott in interview once called himself scientific agnostic.

He definitely digs the scientific stuff.

He also said at one stage that people in spite of all the tech we have now is looking for something higher spiritual. Hence Shaw 's viral video where she states: don't you feel that all the science / tech will never really answer your questions . That was what Prometheus was about in terms of Shaw's  character.

Another example (off topic) is how Scott spoke how easy it is just to walk up to a dam and and throw poison into it make it undrinkable and thousands would suffer before anyone knew as it was the drinking water of a city. Hence the goo.

Etc etc

All current themes.

People are definitely Looking for a higher purpose presence  goal.  And feel abandoned . Most people have no or little connection with a higher presence turns to something else . Fifield turn to drugs another social commentary..

The film wasn't vague at all about it. She wears a Christian cross, repeatedly talks about God, and says she still believes at the end as she flies off. The only way it could be less vague is if she turned to camera halfway through and said "I am a Christian."

Oh wow comparing rogue one to a new trilogy is all kinds of fail. Rogue one is attached to the old trilogy that's why it fits in.

Force awakens is supposed to be  new trilogy but shamessly attaches itself to old trilogy, screwing over fans that expected something new.

Rogue One is the best SW movie since Empire strikes back, no goddamn cute muppet teddy-bears defeating the Empire or Jar jar or Mary sue Rey.
I can't take you seriously when u compare Rogue One (have u even seen it?) to Force Awakens...

That you have so much un-called faith for Ridley after Prometheus is ridiculous...skepticism is legitimate.

Yes, I have seen Rogue One. I didn't care for it. And it is comparable to The Force Awakens in the context we're referring to. Not only is it the second film from Disney, it's littered with references to the original trilogy. References that serve no other purpose other than to wink at the audience. Both films from Disney do this, but Rogue One goes far and beyond what is necessary. Hey, if you liked it, great, but don't act like the two films have nothing in common. And yes, I'm giving Scott the benefit of the doubt because he directed the original film in this saga, and he just directed Prometheus, which is at least the third best film in the saga ( in my opinion ). I can't take anyone seriously when they start comparing Scott's work to that of the brothers Strause. That's nonsense. People can hate on Prometheus all they want, but at least it wasn't the same recycled trash we've been getting from the Alien series ( and AVP ) for over a decade. If anyone actually believes that Covenant is going to be on the same level of film making as AVP:R, I just don't know what to tell them.

References to the old trilogy? Are you kidding me? It is PART OF the old trilogy, it's the SAME time-line, the ending leads DIRECTLY into the first scene of A New Hope! You would have known this if you had watched the movie, which obviously you haven't. Your answer is exactly the kind of stuff I would expect from someone who has yet to see movie n guessing wildly "well, it looks old n stuff, it takes from old movies just like force awakens..BOOO!!"
Go watch the movie before you come on here n comment on it. Embarrassing really...

I would have had more faith for Ridley if he hadn't involved his name with Bladerunner 2...looks like his principles went out the window as he got older n wanted to relive glory from younger days...(yes, I know he doesn't direct it, but still, he should have kept far away)
as for the trailer, reaction says it very good here..

A here's the article . Scott calls himself logically agnostic. Note how he thinks that there must have been a civilization  billions of years ago and that evolution is impossible at an mathematical level. There must be a guidance system.

"The idea that a scientist can't also be a believer is incredibly narrow minded."

Depends on the level of belief, and whether your belief takes over and overshadows rational thinking, like joining a massive expedition to "find our makers" based on paintings(!) because she merely "chose to believe".

Comedy gold right there. That's some prime religious fanatic behaviour, hence my comment that Shaw is a religious and naive wacko.

It is also, again, poor writing like most critics perfectly pointed out, regardless of the other good qualities the film had like the cinematography, art direction etc.

I doubt your typical christian is gonna embrace the idea of engineers and neither your typical atheist.

Most atheists go by evidence. So if there was evidence that the Engineers created humanity, then atheists would very easily accept the fact that we were created by the Engineers.

That's the thing with atheism, if there was 100% evidence of God, then they'd believe he exists. So why wouldn't they accept Engineers?

Now obviously if some random guy on the streets started claiming we were made by Engineers and doesn't present the evidence for it, then it'd no different from some preacher preaching in public about God from their point of view.

As you saw in Prometheus, Holloway didn't have any problems about us being Engineer creations and even told Shaw she can now drop her faith because there's 100% proof that we're their creations but then she begins asking "who created them?"

I am astonished Holloway didn't throw it at her and say "and who created God?", I would've loved to hear what she would've said.

Oh wow comparing rogue one to a new trilogy is all kinds of fail. Rogue one is attached to the old trilogy that's why it fits in.

Force awakens is supposed to be  new trilogy but shamessly attaches itself to old trilogy, screwing over fans that expected something new.

Rogue One is the best SW movie since Empire strikes back, no goddamn cute muppet teddy-bears defeating the Empire or Jar jar or Mary sue Rey.

For the last time, I saw the movie. You think I'm not smart enough to know it leads directly into A New Hope? Derp. That's what the whole movie was about. It still had needless reference to the original trilogy. No matter how much you try to spin it, Rogue One is not a part of the original trilogy. It's certainly related, but it's separate at the same time. And yes, a lot of the references were just fan service nostalgia. For instance:
Spoiler
Showing us Ponda Baba and the other outlaw minutes before the death star is used.
[close]
That reference served no other purpose other than to wink at the audience. Quite frankly, I'm starting to wonder if you even saw the film yourself.

We Christians believe that God is Love.  There is no further definition or description that goes beyond this.

Where do we come from?  Well we Christians believe that God created us.  Whether the seven days are metaphors, who knows?  In the beginning was the word.  That implies that in the beginning, we were information, which is largely in line with some of the current leading scientific theories.  The universe is information.

A scientist CAN also be a believer.  Science is effectively a discipline which is based on a collection of the quantitative observations of our universe.  By it's very nature, this means a scientist can only collect these quantitative observations when they are alive.  There is not quantitative knowledge of the experience beyond death.  One can only hypothesize.  It would be a perfectly sound scientific hypothesis to suggest that we are living in a matrix-like reality and that death is really only akin to being unplugged from one program, and plugged into another.  We see precedent for this sort of thing in our own computers and especially video games.  But none of this can be proved, because nobody (except Jesus, Lazarus, etc. if you believe) has ever come back from beyond death's door.  So any speculation on what lies beyond death, can only be speculative and faith based, even for a scientist.

I just checked the first posts on this site now and there's no comments on posts like Stan Winston not involved in Avp.(he's not asked to be back, what a shame) That movie could be much better with him just by the look of the creatures.

We're on a tangent but...

Almost correct I would say, but perhaps not completely.

Belief in God is only "important" if there is a God and it matters to Him whether you believe in Him or not.

Belief most appropriately is described as a question of "inescapable necessity" when you are considering God or notions of the afterlife.  Since there is no possible way of telling what is beyond death, and no way of quantifying that information through a scientific process, belief is the only notion that can be applied here.  Whether you believe there is something more, or that there is not, it is still a belief.  The idea of belief is so "necessary" here, to the point that it is inescapable.  Even if you choose to be agnostic about the existence of God or the afterlife, that is still a belief.  There is no empirical evidence for that position or the other two.  There is no way to "definitively" know.

This is a fundamental limitation of science, along with an inability to identify, much less discern between notions of right and wrong.

I'll stick by my opinion that the trailer was average to above average at best with some good parts but still just a trailer.

Look at Dredd (2012), the movie as far as I am concerned is great, and I know I'm not alone on that, and it just shits all over Stallone's Judge Dredd, but the movie had a terrible marketing campaign and didn't even break even at the box office.

Alien  prequels are named after the doomed space ship. So the final movie will be called Alien: Derelict. twas a joke.

Although I'm still reeling over the rumored title "forces of destiny" for episode 8. In any case Alien: Prometheus works fine by me.

If Fox really sees that there is a lot of confusion on this subject going into the film, they should release an expanded cut of Prometheus, called Alien: Prometheus on Bluray prior to the release of covenant.

I think Prometheus fans will go and see Alien Covenant regardless (due to it being a sequel of sorts). The trailer will probably bring in those who expected a more Alien vibe to Prometheus.

I wasn't too excited by the trailer. Maybe it's the scenes they decided to show but I'm getting way too many "Alien remake with some Aliens thrown in" vibes from the trailer.

Hopefully it's just the trailer, and David's goals will make things more interesting and unique.
Title: Re: Alien: Covenant Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: BishopShouldGo on Dec 30, 2016, 06:28:18 PM
Yeah. David is by far the most unique and complex character the Alien series has been endowed with to date. I want more, many more, scene stealing moments from him. I want The Fassbender Show.

It's bad enough that it sounds like
Spoiler
we might not be getting that much Engineer action
[close]
. And the dialogue we've read about and heard so far isn't too promising. "How about we don't know what the f**k's out there!" Yikes, I know these are just colonists but maybe don't make the characters colonists in the first place.

Sounds like my favorite sequence might be David's dream with Weyland.
Title: Re: Alien: Covenant Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: DorkiDori on Dec 30, 2016, 06:30:36 PM
i have a really great feeling that Covenant will be just as deep as Prometheus was... but will add all of the "Alien" film elements back in that so many people were craving from Prometheus. Personally I dug how they dropped a lot of the traditional "Alien" elements out of Prometheus, but still kept its DNA in there.

May seems like an eternity away even though its been almost 5 years since Prometheus and the promise of sequels lol!

For me it screams "slasher" and "generic horror". I know its Ridley so we shouldnt be that worried (although the general consensus on Scott seems to be that if hes good, hes really good, if hes bad, hes terrible), but still, in Scot's alien movie? two pinup characters going at it under the shower, then the monster kills them, plus the typical modern startling moment...sorry guys, it just leaves a bad slasher taste in my mouth, thats all. Just my personal opinion

red band trailers only have a limited reach due to age restrictions and movie ratings in theaters. its RARE that i ever see a red band trailer in the actual theater. green band trailers are universally marketed without worry of the wrong audience of seeing it... so hence, my original point, trailer needs to be attached to actual films ASAP. not everyone lives on the web like a lot of us seem to. most older folks arent going to spend a ton of time on the interwebs hunting down trailers. theyll catch the preview when its attached to a movie and go "oh, look at that... a new Alien film. i had no idea they were making one!"

With how much inspiration Scott and Logan seem to have taken from Gibson, I think we'll be seeing a revisit of Gibson's notion of the Alien DNA being able to assimilate other's DNAs, with it being deliberately designed to be so versatile.

There is more than one Neomorph because more than one Covenant member will be infected.

There's already a lot of native Neomorphs spawned by the Engineer population of the planet. We're talking "ALIENS" type situation here... but with an Engineer Citadel instead of a Human Colony.

Title: Re: Alien: Covenant Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: The Eighth Passenger on Jan 17, 2017, 09:56:16 PM
Well, Passengers was PG-13 while the other two were R-Rated. So they couldn't really use the red-band trailer.

There is however an existing greenband trailer (which has already been rated in two countries) that they could have used instead.

They probably cut out the bloody parts and some of the decon shower scene. The blood will also be made to look darker like they do in most trailers that show it.

According to someone who has seen the greenband trailer it is completely different to the redband version. It's not just a case of the bloody or nude bits having been cut.

Maybe you're right but I doubt that the Neomorph will have such a small role. I think the photo shows all the phases of its evolution.
And his deformed face could be caused by the exploding.

It doesn't shock me that the neomorph has survived.

The landing party is taking another infected person to the dropship when it explodes. After the explosion, the landing party is in shock as another neomorph pops out of their infected crewmember.

The explosion originates right next to the neomorph we see in the trailer, i'm more than sure its dead.

Still remember attending the premiere in my hometown here in Australia, back in 1986. The sound was so loud especially during the first dropship scene (had to cover my ears).

I really hope local cinemas maybe bring back Alien or Aliens back to the big screen for Alien Day or Covenant's release. Doubt it though.

if it was intended to be shaw's, then we would have clearly seen her crucifix, not a card nobody knows of.
it would not make any sense either to have a card suddenly added to that crucifix.

i could ONLY theorize, that if it indeed is something of shaw, then it can only be that shaw added some card to her necklace,
which might contain information digitally stored or anything like that. perhaps a warning.

Could it not just be dog tags from one of the Covenant's security people? The ship seemingly has an entire squad of armed security men on board.

True but sagardoa said that this scene
Spoiler
wasn't in the screening he was at, and prob was added in reshoots...And her attire in the pic is not the same she has on in the pic with gun..
[close]
. To me it looks like when they first go out and explore the juggernaut. Which means that no one would have died yet.

its a security/acces card, imo.
The question is, what is she reading on it, does it say Walter? Or Billy? Or Shaw?
Then should be asking herself why is Walters security pass on this, if he is with us the whole time?
Or who is Shaw? And does the David android knows something more that he isnt telling.

This scene or still is cleary an assumption fck up, everybody that sees this instantly yell: dogtags!
But when zoomed in it isnt a dogtag. Imo

Post by: whiterabbit on Jan 28, 2017, 12:25:32 AM
The most logical explanation is that it is a futuristic dog tag. Then perhaps a protective sheet for which her cross is inside. Then there is digital magic where they remove the place holder in favor of a cross for the movie. At this point what I see is some type of information device that is meant to hang around a persons neck. Dog tags.

It could also be a microscopic slide with someones DNA actually...

Post by: rabidranger on Jan 28, 2017, 11:08:06 PM
Well, dog tags aside that is no doubt Shaw's cross.....without her attached to it. Someone ends up putting it in an evidence bag of some sort for safe keeping. The question is where's Shaw?
Title: Re: Alien: Covenant Teaser Trailer Now Online!
Post by: Ultramorph on Jan 29, 2017, 03:12:47 AM
Didn't Shaw have dog-tags on in that behind the scenes transmission that was sent to the Engineers? I have to think it's related to Shaw. There's no reason to make a big deal out of it in the trailer if the tags belong to some random security officer.

I don't see the cross in the shot at all.


Furthermore isn't it entirely possible this is the wreckage of the dropship she's inside of?

no, it's looking rather like a cave. just up the lighting/gamma in a photoshop editor. it looks most like it has the same structural environment that we see when one of the actors scream and we see a hallway that looks like a derelict corridor [but isnt actually, again, just up the gamma], just before switching to the shower scene.

it has wildgrowth branches too.

i'm in the middle of it being the derelict, or something else on the planet. we know there are structures on the planet due to the platform scene with the pillars. there might be some caves, too, who knows.

the dogtag - which probably isnt a dogtag at all - simply and factually does not belong to shaw. stop hanging on to something that was a big mistake to assume from the beginning.

I think the trailer itself is purposely made to mislead us in few scenes. When I watched trailer for the first time I thought that those three shots take place in one location (crashed Juggernaut) but now I'm not so sure about the last one with Daniels.

Some of my thoughts on the trailer.

1. Certainly interesting how teaser trailers are now becoming as long as feature length trailers.

2.  While I understand that the song was supposed to be related to David, the trailer wasn't concentrated on David.  Wonder what would have happened if the trailer was shorter, less dialogue,and had Mr. Bowie's  Space Oddity song.

3.  Was a bit underwhelmed, IMO.  Movie looks gorgeous and I am sure it is going to knock it out of the park.

QuoteThere was supposed to be a Superbowl trailer, but...

...according to a guy who works at a company making these trailers, it was pulled at the last minute. On the Something Awful movie forums, he posted that another non-Fox Superbowl trailer (meaning not Logan or A Cure For Wellness, which they also did) is already using the same music they were planning to use for the Superbowl spot.

or perhaps this one:

Not sure if i'm bummed down that if it was this one, that it now isn't. As interesting as I think it would be,
i think it would be a wrong approach for the movie to add this sound to a trailer.

however, if it would be a cover like this one - despite it not being as good as Johnny Cash, i really dig the vibe.

You might think that is silly and we should have heard about that before Friday and I'd say you are right and this was intentionally withheld by design which is kind of apropos for gamesmanship. We were out-coached is what I'm trying to say.

While I do appreciate every new entry in the Alien Saga, honestly this first trailer of Alien Covenant just bored me with how bland and unoriginal it looked. I should've been excited but I just felt almost nothing. It was rather cringy. I hope Ridley Scott will prove me wrong and surprise me with classic Alien goodness but I'm lowering my expectations. Especially that shower scene with the Alien tail between the chick's legs looked really embarrassing and cheap. Did Ridley Scott learn to do that that from George Lucas' Poetry & Rhyme class?  :D

I m completely sure. Maybe it belonged to Demian Bichir's character!

One new thing...

Remember how someone who claimed to have seen the move (I think Sagardoa)
said that the person standing next to Daniels on photo below is Bichir's character...
When asked about the name he said he forgot it... as any other name for that matter.

Well let me tell you, that is not Bichir's character!!! And its obvious from the trailer! ;) :)

What confuses you?
Sagardoa was wrong about this... Bichir is not on that photo with Daniels as those who allegedly
saw the movie claimed! That is suspicious.

Nothing, that pic didn't show up right away. :)

I feel sullied, and soiled being fooled Sagardoa.

I suppose the leaks are still true, but that is suspicious indeed.

Also, they're standing in front of the temple from the leaked pictures. But where are all the dead engineers?

Shit Enoch, the dude saw the movie once.

Once.

Cut him some slack.

Besides, he knew Walter's name long before it became public. He was also spot-on with regards to Franco's fate. And a lot of other much more important details.

He said that
Spoiler
David drops black goo on them,

but then why would the ship have crashed??

I read somewhere that someone said the
Spoiler
David creates xeno to kill them
[close]
so a little confused.

Perhaps they never screened the whole thing... Maybe they just did partial screenings...? Is that possible?
Eight, you re right, but there are still some discrepancies regarding Sagardoa's statements which lead me to believe
that he never saw the whole movie/cut (no matter what version of it).

Little point in doing a partial test screening.
And Sagardoa already remembered more than I would have from a single screening. Also keep in mind that he apparently attended the first test screening. A few things may have changed since.

I would have been suspicious if he didn't miss-remember a few things.  :laugh:

Do you guys have any idea what cloaked David is carrying? I thought it was a cylinder or a canister of something but the way his other hand is gripping part of it like a trigger I thought it might be a type of breach-loading weapons where you open it like a double-barrel, stick the shell in and close it. If you watch that part a few times he seems to snap it closed just as the scene changes.

Am I imagining things or do you see this too?

Or maybe it's just off the Covenant. We already know they have a pretty heavily armed security detail.

Yes. Considering his facial characteristic and height, he could play Engineer.


And yes... that dog tag belonged to someone from Covenant crew.
I m completely sure. Maybe it belonged to Demian Bichir's character!

One new thing...

Remember how someone who claimed to have seen the move (I think Sagardoa)
said that the person standing next to Daniels on photo below is Bichir's character...
When asked about the name he said he forgot it... as any other name for that matter.

Well let me tell you, that is not Bichir's character!!! And its obvious from the trailer! ;) :)

No, I prefer the dialogue of an unfolding story.

It's an ok trailer if you want a stack of spoilers, or a nice reminder of the loud bits once you've seen it.

Didn't like the red light or the hopping about too much. More shots in film like the entry into the terraforming bay would have been good in the film itself.

They sort of included that when it was running around onboard the Covenant before being locked inside the terraforming bay.

Nothing like the trailer shot though.

Funny thing is, some of the people from Fox I spoke to after the press showing I went to on the 2nd were surprised when I told them it wasn't in, because it had been when they'd seen the film. Evidently it was cut quite late in the day.

Wow. I surprised, I really disagree here. I think they shouldn't show the Alien so much. I LOVED the part of the Alien being trapped inside the Truck, when it's thrashing about. I hate that they showed the Alien walking through that door slowly because it seemed off guard. I also didn't like the Alien POV vision. They should have kept it clean and wide-angled, like in A3.

The shot of it walking through the terraforming bay door? It's amazing! The most Alien thing I've seen since the first film. It's the kind of creepy that I've wanted, it's a shame it's taken this long to get it and that it's a disappointing finale.

standard cinematography shooting rules... 3 second rule and 7 second rule

damn near every and any scene ever shot on film follows these 2 rules. dont believe me? next time youre watching ANY movie, count the seconds off in your head between camera cuts. they will always fall within 3 seconds or close to 7 seconds.

the alien is USUALLY shown in the 3 second rule because cutting that quickly keeps you guessing. your brain cant get a 100% fix on what its seeing, it only sees glimpses of detail. this is done for a purpose... it helps keep the monster a mystery, even when you KNOW what it looks like, your brain still wants to see ALL of the details so it keeps you glued to the screen.
