    I bet it's only an appearance in "logs" or something. :D But I hope it's more! Bring on this sequel/whatever it is.

    It's been reported as "weeks worth" of shoots by Deadline: https://deadline.com/2016/06/noomi-rapace-alien-covenant-reprises-role-1201776038/

    So it's hard to say how much she'll be in the movie. Sounds like more than a sequence or two, but doesn't sound like she's the main character either.

    Which is a shame because she was really the only thing I gave a damn about in Prometheus and was looking forward to a story told just with her. It just all sounds like a mess and doesn't really look like they've got it together on this one either.

    It might pick up directly after the first one as a pre-credit bookend to begin part 2 showing Shaw discovering the Engineers' crib. Then, as Workshed pointed out, she might appear in some sort of discovered journal that the new cast discovers.

    I'm sold. I love that they used a red band trailer to promote it.

    I'm excited about it... the trailer certainly looks promising.

    I've enjoyed all of the Alien films except 4, and I seriously over hyped myself for Prometheus which didn't help when I saw the film. I still liked it, but some elements pulled me out of the film, especially the weirdly fake looking make-up job for the old man. I'll keep my feelings in check on this one.

    Still feeling the Prometheus vibe but with actual Xenomorphs now. Seems David the Android was left to keep conducting experiments on his own with the weird black goo finally leading to the classic Alien look. Seem like this could end up being what I had hoped Prometheus would be. Very interested.

    Did I just see Danny McBride in that trailer? Interesting casting....wonder if he's got a significant role or just a small side character. Don't think I've seen him in anything even remotely serious. Looks like a cool flick though, I'm with it.

    Pretty cool "Re-Cut" of the trailer :)


    Btw, isn't it time to change the title of the thread? ;)

    Looks a tad Sy Fy Channel in spite of the unique and innovative teal color corrected cinematography.

    So, we're getting the chest and back bursters (the latter seen in the trailer),
    could we also have one popping out of the throat or mouth?
    Can't wait to see what the different Xenomorphs are going to look like :)

    And, yes, please change the title.
    It will be easier to search for it, using the real one.

    Slow news day, but...

    First look of the Neomorph, that was barely visible for about a second in the official trailer
    http://www.alien-covenant.com/news/alien-covenant-trailer-analysis-first-look-at-neomorph

    Another re-cut, using the sound from the original Alien trailer.


    I kinda wish that FOX would have done the official trailer in this style, as they did with the teasers for Alien, Aliens.



    No dialogue, just visuals and scary sounds.
    Also the Prometheus teaser was close in the same style as well, even with a bit of dialog.

    Mods, can we get a thread title change, please?

    Anyway, Ridley Scott just shared a five-minute PROLOGUE to Alien: Covenant:

    Yes, please change the title. We have been asking since December, what is the problem?!
    Was searching and couldn't find it, because I forgot that it STILL had the wrong title...

    Christ, now I get it. Prometheus 2 is now Alien: Covenant. I wondered why I kept seeing different titles. Thought there were two different films. Have to admit I haven't been following the new on this film but it does look really good.

    Yeah, it gets a bit confusing, when they, for some reason, won't change the title over here :D

    Where are the mods?
