Hoping Old One storyboarded the Xeno to do some crab-walk.

I just love me some crab-walk!



I hate the crab walk! I can see why they excised it. It's so goofy looking and so obviously a man in a suit.

It also reminds me of playing this weird game with a huge beach ball in gym class in elementary school. Where everyone was forced to crab walk and kick while crab walking.

Bravo Old One! I can't imagine how awesome it must feel to know you left your mark on an official Alien in universe product.

And I'm really liking the trailer.

Likely to coincide with the Hollywood Reporter article. It was probably just a mistake.

I’m sure, it just seemed goofy to yank it when it’s so close to the intended reveal anyway.

Anyway, these are looking pretty good.  The only thing that slightly waters down my excitement is how static the Covenant xeno’s face looks in that clip.  I got the impression that the suit was made as a stand-in with the intent of completely covering it with CGI.

And congrats to Old One.  That’s awesome.

The film's Covenant's suit is absent.
 
A variation of the design is present though.

I realize I was not involved and you were but respectfully... The suit is clearly the removed-from-the-film Odd Studio suit created for Covenant. It has the exactly same face/mouth and floating/blank space shoulder arches. I mean it IS the suit we have seen on the James Corden show, on the Covenant BTS videos and on the weird marketing video for Alien Blackout.

This suit:

She means that the suit wasn't actually featured in the finished film, Jenga. It's a "technically, she's correct" thing.

Anyway, these are looking pretty good.  The only thing that slightly waters down my excitement is how static the Covenant xeno’s face looks in that clip.  I got the impression that the suit was made as a stand-in with the intent of completely covering it with CGI.

That's because it's not a hero head. We've known for some time that all the suits were done with the knowledge that a lot of them would be removed and replaced with the CGI Alien. I know Odd Studio talked about this particular suit when it first showed up on Corden's show and I'm trying to find the quote now.

Got it, it was something Adam told me in chat and I mentioned in the post. It was a stunt suit.

So Bill Paxton's son is in one of the shorts, Alien: Alone.


That's pretty f**king cool.
