I'm sure it was someone on here's account. Sorry if it's not you.

If you're talking about the YouTube channel with the Covenant trailers that would be me. I'm new to this forum,  just found it recently. I'm just really excited for Covenant so I've been following a lot of different things about the movie.
The nursery rhymes trailer is a fan made one, here's the original -

Danny Mcbride will be on Jimmy Kimmel tonight!

Just wanted to let people know that actor Billy Crudup (Oram) will be on Jimmy Kimmel tomorrow night. That's on ABC after local news.

Also, James Franco will be on Conan O'Brien next Monday. That's TBS. Not sure the time it starts. On the same night, Michael Fassbender with attend The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon which is on NBC.

Btw, I love that poster!

It's so awkward having Franco a part of the press burst. He's talked about it more than he actually in it!

Should've. Had. Him. As. Oram. Or even Lope.

I know I shouldn't post scified stuff but I just wanted to get it down for the record: a thread over there claims alien 5 was initially going to be called awakening.  Just for the record.

Scott says he was wrong ... or right.

Prometheus received fan ire for not focusing heavily enough on the scares, something which appears to be fixed in the terrifying Covenant. "What changed was the reaction to Prometheus, which was a pretty good ground zero reaction," Scott said of his decision to refocus on the classic xenomorphs. "It went straight up there, and we discovered from it that [the fans] were really frustrated. They wanted to see more of the original [monster] and I thought he was definitely cooked, with an orange in his mouth. So I thought: 'Wow, OK, I'm wrong.'"

Unlike some filmmakers, who push down a certain path regardless of fan reactions, Scott says that he does consider it, explaining that fans, while not the final say in what he includes, can be a "reflection of your doubts about something." "You realize, 'I was wrong' or 'I was right,” he said. "I think that's where it comes in. I think you're not sensible if you don't actually take [the fans' reaction] into account."

Despite negative fan response to Prometheus and amid mostly positive, mixed reviews for Covenant, Scott still says that he plans to do at least one more sequel, set to be released within "a year and nine months," and possibly even another after that, although he won't say what they will be about or when they will take place. "It's weird when you're writing, doing, planning, thinking about franchises, it's amazing how it opens up and starts to evolve," he said.

I don't know the best place to inquire, but it's not worth it's own topic: was Covenant filmed in 3D? Prometheus was & they promoted that aspect heavily. It looked f'n gorgeous too. Haven't heard anything about it this go around, but it seems odd to go backwards it terms of presentation.
