Quote from: Evanus on Mar 05, 2017, 05:04:49 PMThe Hall of Heads sounds really cool. Sadly, we'll probably learn nothing about it. It's frustrating, because they could've done something really epic with that and the whole engineer citadel. Instead, they focus on David and his experiments.
Quote from: ReluctantNerd on Mar 05, 2017, 06:48:01 PMIn reference to my earlier post (can't figure out how to quote!), yeah I also think Ridley means the usual suspect when he talks about who created what...And I don't know in which topic my following remark belongs, it's just an observation on a common misconception so I'll put it here: the remains of the people of Pompeii were not found as we know them, they are plaster casts of hollows found in the volcanic debris (which formed after the flesh decomposed, leaving only bones in the hollows). The engineer remains in Covenant are obviously based on them and in story the cause is probably something entirely different so that's fine, I just hope some character doesn't do a Prometheus and says something like "My god, they're petrified. Just like Pompeii!" when they discover them
Quote*CYPRESS is a symbol of the Lord of the Underworld. The cypress was first planted in cemeteries, due to a folk belief that it had the power to preserve the body from corruption. Today it is common to see cypress trees growing in a cemetery, particularly in Italy,The cypress tree is also associated with the Watchers or Grigori, and is a guardian tree. Because of its tall straight nature the cypress wasoften used as the tree for the Maypole, and was sacred to Maia, the May goddess. Cypress was believed to preserve the dead body from corruption.In the ancient Aegean/Mediterranean region the cypress was sacred to Zeus, Apollo, Venus, and Hermes. In occult imagery the cypress is sometimes pictured in art with the sun and moon on either side, symbolizing the cypress as the balance of polarity. Interestingly Swiss painter A. Bocklin used cypress as a symbol in many of his images. This plant occupied the central part of his most famous painting Isle of the Dead.
QuoteFILMSTARTS: You're more familiar with your comedic roles. How does it look at "Alien: Covenant"? Danny McBride: "Covenant" is definitely not a very funny movie, so I can say for sure. When I got the role, all my friends blasphemed me that I'll end up just for the funny loosening, but there is not much to laugh in "Covenant", just a bunch of people muttered. (Laughs) FILMSTARTS: Do you have a little Meet & Greet with the title-giving creature in the movie? Danny McBride: Oh yeah, I meet some of those in the film. The first thing I did when I went to Sydney was to visit the Creature Shop at 20th Century Fox Studios. It was the madness that must be the coolest job in the world, to think up something and actually to implement it. In addition to the creatures, it was also very exciting to see live copies of your colleagues with mutilated faces. (Laughs) FILMSTARTS: How did you prepare for the role as a pilot? Danny McBride: When I met Ridley to discuss my part, he told me that Tennessee was a tribute to Slim Pickens' Major Kong from Stanley Kubrick's " Dr. Strange Or: How I Learned, To love the bomb ". I watched the movie again.
