Fox Releases Cool New Poster For Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant

20 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Totally digging the awesome new poster for the upcoming sci-fi film Alien: Covenant. The marketing folks over at 20th Century Fox have kicked it into high gear with their campaign for Ridley Scott’s return to the universe he created with a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. The previous posters have been been genius, with their taglines of “Run” and “Hide”. This latest one is truly inspired!

Check out the poster now before Alien: Covenant hits theaters May 19, 2017.

The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, »

Xenomorphs, Facehuggers, and their victims—what looks to be the Engineers—are intertwined in an eye-popping new poster for Alien: Covenant.

"Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape."

Stunning Geiger-inspired poster for Alien: Covenant graces the internet

23 March 2017 6:58 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

20th Century Fox have released a brand new poster for their upcoming horror prequel to the Alien series, and sequel to Prometheus, Alien: Covenant.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Ridley Scott is directing the film for the studio, while Michael Fassbender stars alongside Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smolett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, and Billy Crudup. We’re also expecting to see Noomi Rapace back as Dr. »

Hellish new poster for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant

A new poster has arrived online from Ridley Scott’s highly-anticipated follow-up to Prometheus, Alien: Covenant , which seems very reminiscent of Auguste Rodin’s sculptural work ‘The Gates of Hell’; take a look below…

Ridley Scott says there will definitely be four more Alien movies after Covenant

19 March 2017 6:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month, Ridley Scott revealed that he already has a script for another Alien movie to follow this year’s Alien: Covenant, and that we could get a further six movies in the franchise before he decides to call it a day.

Although that sounded like hyperbole from Scott, the filmmaker has now revealed to Fandango that he plans on pulling a James Cameron and will “definitely” make a further four movies after Covenant. It seems he may have also let slip one of the titles too:

“There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] Alien. It will go Prometheus, Awakening, Covenant… If this is successful, and then the next one, and then there will definitely be three more.”

So, it would appear that Alien: Awakening is a sequel to Prometheus, and a prequel to Covenant, »

At Least Four More 'Alien' Movies Are Reportedly In The Works

17 March 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

in advance of Alien: Covenant arriving in theaters on May 19, director Ridley Scott joined stars Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride at the SXSW Film Festival for a screening of the original Alien, followed by new footage from Alien: Covenant. It was there that Fandango caught up with the trio to talk a little more about Covenant and how it differs from Prometheus (it'll be gorier!), as well as how it all connects to Scott's original 1979 Alien movie. As we began our conversation, we asked Scott how Covenant would separate itself from Prometheus.  "It's beginning to answer the who and why," he said. "It's definitely gorier, and smarter. In it we raise some very interesting questions about the position and possibility of AI against human...

Are four more Alien movies to follow ‘Covenant?’

17 March 2017 12:11 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It looks like Ridley Scott has some serious plans for the Alien series. The legendary British filmmaker has been speaking to Fandango about his latest, Alien: Covenant, which opens in UK cinemas this coming May. Scott spoke about more planned sequels in the series, which goes beyond another two.

“There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] ‘Alien’,” says Scott. “…If this is successful, and then the next one, and then there will definitely be three more.”

Scott also mentioned the words Alien: Awakening as a potential title for a film that’s set between Prometheus and ‘Covenant’.  Here’s the official synopsis for ‘Covenant’.

Alien: Awakening Will Be the Next Alien Movie

17 March 2017 11:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We are still a couple of months away from Alien: Covenant hitting theaters, but that isn't preventing Ridley Scott from planning way ahead. Assuming this movie is everything we hope it could be, and it looks like it will be, that is probably for the best. Not only does the director have a script written for the next installment, but he has revealed the title for it as well.

While speaking with Fandango, Ridley Scott revealed that the title for the next Alien movie will be Alien: Awakening. That, in itself, is pretty interesting but it is how he said it, or more, where he said it that really raises some eyebrows.

"There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] Alien ... It will go Prometheus, Awakening, Covenant. (T)here will be more after this. If this is successful, »

Alien: Covenant gets a UK trailer

17 March 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we brought you a featurette for Alien: Covenant which focussed on Michael Fassbender’s Walter [watch it here], and now 20th Century Fox has released a UK trailer for Ridley Scott’s highly-anticipated follow-up to Prometheus, although sadly it doesn’t offer up anything in the way of new footage.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant is set for release on May 19th and is penned by Michael Green, Jack Paglen and John Logan. »

Ridley Scott and Cast Drop Alien: Covenant Secrets at SXSW

16 March 2017 1:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ridley Scott, at the age of 79-years-old, is a man who is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down. After directing The Martian, his most critically and financially successful movie in more than 15 years, he is returning to the world of Alien with the highly-anticipated Alien: Covenant. Unlike Prometheus, this movie is not just going to be taking place within that same universe with loose ties to the Alien mythology. This is a true-to-form Alien movie and if Ridley Scott has his way, it will be the first of many.

I was lucky enough to participate in a roundtable discussion with Sir Ridley Scott at SXSW about Alien: Covenant. We were also joined by cast members Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride, who seemed just as pleased to be there as everyone else. The second a man like Ridley Scott starts talking, everyone listens. He speaks quietly yet confidently and says what he wants. »

SXSW Alien Covenant Footage Review: Ridley Scott Returns to Horror

11 March 2017 10:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Ridley Scott descended on SXSW for the very first time in his long career yesterday in order to promote his upcoming movie Alien: Covenant. The movie, based on the trailers and posters alone, looks to be a return-to-form for the franchise and I can now confidently say even more so that seems to be the case. Last night prior to a screening of the original Alien, Ridley Scott screened several scenes from Alien: Covenant and it was mostly awesome...mostly.

Warning: this article may contain minor spoilers for Alien: Covenant, but I will avoid getting overly specific as to not spoil anything for those who want to see the movie when it comes out. The packed house at the Paramount Theatre on the first night of SXSW not only received free shirts and posters, but they saw three very encouraging scenes from the follow-up to Prometheus.

Ridley Scott gave us a sneak peek of Alien Covenant at South By Southwest – our reaction

11 March 2017 1:23 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Nathan McVay

In anticipation of the release of Alien Covenant this summer, South by Southwest welcomed Ridley Scott for the very first time to screen his 1979 classic Alien for the Austin, Texas crowd.

Scott did not come alone as he was joined by stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride, all with something special for the crowd in attendance.

Before the screening of Alien, Scott greeted the audience with news they would be getting a sneak peek of a few scenes from Alien: Covenant two months  before the release. Scott urged the audience he had been trying to do what he always has tried, “scare the living shit out of you.”

So what did we learn? Here is a breakdown of the three scenes shown. Obviously spoilers are ahead but nothing that isn’t hinted at in the recently released trailer.

Ridley Scott Shuts Down Ripley's Mom Rumor in Alien: Covenant

10 March 2017 1:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There is still a lot of mystery surrounding Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, which is probably the way a lot of fans want it to be at this point. However, we can now put one big mystery to bed. Well, maybe not so much a mystery as it was a rumor. Either way, we can definitively say that Katherine Waterston's character Daniels is not related to Sigourney Weaver's character Ripley from the original Alien.

Ridley Scott recently participated in a roundtable discussion about Alien: Covenant at SXSW in Austin. I was lucky enough to be at the roundtable and at one point the director was asked point blank whether or not Daniels was related to Ripley, which has been a popular theory up to this point. The director made it clear that isn't going to be the case, but did imply that it was at least brought up at one point or another. »

Newswire: Michael Fassbender gets a new body and identity in Alien: Covenant featurette

10 March 2017 11:06 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus ends with David’s (Michael Fassbender) severed head helping Shaw (Noomi Rapace) navigate her way back to the Engineers’ homeworld. This setup for the next film in this Alien prequel saga suggested we’d eventually get some real answers. But Michael’s body-less head did present some trouble, as well as the possibility of some Basket Case-like hijinks. Would Shaw tote the head around in Alien: Covenant, or would someone from the new crew—which includes Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, and James Franco—find a way to make him whole again? From the looks of this featurette, we can stop worrying about that, because David is no more.

“Walter. We are Walter,” Fassbender says after getting a new body, complete with head. The tears forming in his eyes suggest he got a new attitude as well, but we won’t know for sure until Alien »

Walter is a newer version of the android David from Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus.” “I think Walter’s a real different kettle of fish,” Fassbender told Screen Rant. “David was definitely a work-in-progress, somewhat of a prototype I suppose. The elements of him that were the human elements I think people found a little disturbing, so Walter’s more of a straightforward robot. Pretty logical, much more of a servant without the ego. »
