Corporal Hicks

Following on from his tour around the Juggernaut set, Adam Savage has released a new behind-the-scenes video looking at the weapons and blood effects of Alien: Covenant.

This new 11 minute long video sees Savage being shown around Alien: Covenant’s weaponry, seeing an Alien ramming it’s head into glass, some serious vomiting blood We’re also treated to a good look at the massacre set at Potts Hill and a practical Alien skull!

“On the set of the upcoming Alien: Covenant, Adam Savage learns about the array of prop guns and knives used in filming by production armorist John Bowring! Adam then stops by the breakaway effects department to see how the various alien, human, and synthetic bloods and fluids are made and used to great effect on screen!”

Nice Vid, good to see some more of the "quarry" set and close-ups of the weaponry.

Adam Savage is like a little kid in a candy store but good to see he knows about trigger discipline.  :)

What are the chances of finding a Banksy this far from Earth?

Engineer street art confirmed!

These people seem to love their jobs. Very good sign for the quality of the movie!

Probably just concept art. But yeah,

Shaw is experimented on so she should look something like that, right?

Also, you can clearly see the engineer corpses are bigger than humans.

Yes, its a concept art, but concept art is made following the screenplay instructions and requirements (plot). :)
I never said those guys on Paradise are not the Engineers, I said that they are not the same group we ve  seen in Prometheus.

Corporal Hicks

The set reports mentioned a piece of concept art that looked like that.  :)

Also, I love how they didn't blur those images but blurred something behind the fx guys.  :laugh:

The Eighth Passenger

Yeah, someone mentioned that Gigeresque drawing of Shaw during the press set visits. Nice catch Enoch.

I see there was some other stuff that was deliberately blurred out in the video.

Yeah I know, but that doesn't mean this is exactly how it looks in the film. It will definitely look similar, but not 100% the same.  ;)

Oh and my comment about the engineers wasn't directed at you, it was just an observation.

Denton Smalls

Man I hope they made a purchasable rifle prop like they do for the pulse rifles.

Where was the traditional yellowish xeno blood? Are we meant to think that the Aliens in this bleed black?

Adam is king.

I hope he made a selfie at the engineer genocide stairs.

Corporal Hicks

While I love the AUG and understand them wanting to make it less futuristic than the Pulse Rifle, I'm still a little miffed they didn't try harder to disguise the props they used.
