That ok, but the sound of Alien/Xenomorph can not be just electronic or ambiental or computerized for that matter.
It needs to have some primordial feel to it also, and how to get that without orchestra and some ancient instruments.
Xeno is primordial, ancient, mysterious... computer and synth can not describe the horror of such an organism.I want to hear some kind of elegant mix with more classical elements. Goldenthals soundtrack is the last evolution phase of Alien music. He created a perfect music for such Universe using Goldsmiths and Horners established music and introducing something new and more fitting to the themes of Alien movies.

This kind of music could very well be implemented in Alien soundtrack,
but I would like orchestral elements!!!!

Wow. Would love it if they dropped a production still or 2 on us or even a poster.

Would be nice. To be honest, I don't think we'll get the poster until the end of the year anyway. Maybe something at NYCC if we're lucky.

Interesting!
Can you tell us more?

Corporal Hicks

No more than that, I'm afraid. It was a screening for Fox.

Nice find! I suspect we may just get a Covenant poster at NYCC if FOX intend on promoting the franchise, fingers crossed!

SuicideDoors

It's definitely positive the franchise has got some prescence there. And Ridley obviously has that toast night coming up mid October where I suspect we'll hear some details. Maybe October won't be so barren!

I don't think its a coincidence that the alien franchise will be at NYCC!! Maybe possible teaser seeing as how a test screening was already done, or maybe that 'Making Fear' docu!!! 8)

'The Forever War' draws my attention. I ll explore all possible relations with Covenant.
I now have something to do. :)

QuoteIn 2008 Ridley Scott picked up the rights with plans to direct a Forever War movie. David Peoples (Blade Runner), Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z), and Dante Harper all took turns at the script. But needless to say, Scott's plans never quite came together.

So he now wants to use ideas from Forever War in Covenant... that can be a very good thing!
I suspect Ridley will use time dilation effect in Covenant, we shall see in what way! Or maybe he ll describe the story of Engineers explaining in that way destiny of humanity and hinting the origin of Xeno... like Milton did whit Satan.   Joe Haldeman did the sam in his novel...

Chris!(($$))!

I like that Xeno. It does a good job combining the Xeno designs over the year.

I remember an Alien script that used Time Dilation and other ideas from The Forever War....  ;)

I'm unsure if this is an authentic account (I'm checking with PR) but the Alien: Covenant Official Instagram account is claiming we'll be getting a trailer with Assasain's Creed: https://www.instagram.com/p/BLHYkwiBiIK/

Quote"Pleased to announce the first official @aliencovenant teaser will debut along with the #assasinscreed film. #aliencovenant #alien #teaser #20thcenturyfox"

That said, it's when I expect we'll be seeing a trailer and it is a Fox film so it's not unlikely.

Time dilation seems too obvious, its the whole crux in which the character drama revolves around (great book!)...perhaps it's something more akin to not being able to understand the enemy?

Nice find!! So December 21 is when Assassin's creed comes out. Anyone planning to go see that movie with Fassbender in it? I tried the first game, not really my type of game..One of you Predator assassins need to go on assignment and videotape the preview. :)

I think I will do it actually, I'll just pay for Star Wars and sneak in the beginning of Assassin's Creed..damn 2+ more months..getting there slowly.
