Watch the Alien Covenant prologue: Last Supper & new images

4 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

A few months before Prometheus Ridely Scott paved the way for our return to the world of Alien with a future set Ted talk starring Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland. Directed by Luke Scott, it was an intriguing introduction to elements and themes which would become important in the subsequent film. The Scotts have repeated their pre-Alien film tradition with a prologue to Alien Covenant called Last Supper, which you can see below.

Late last year we broke the news that James Franco would be joining the cast of Ridley Scott’s new Alien film, and he makes an appearance early on in this new piece of the puzzle. He is in poor health however, and speculation abounds that his character won’t make it too far into the film. There’s nothing to say that he won’t take a pulse rifle to the new Alien »

‘Alien: Covenant’ Serves Up 5-Minute ‘Last Supper’ Prologue

10 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With Neill Blomkamp‘s “Alien” looking unlikely to happen, the future of the franchise rests on the shoulders of the man who started it all: Ridley Scott. He’s back with “Alien: Covenant,” which for fans will have to show some improvement over the beautiful looking, viscerally engaging, but kinda really dumb “Prometheus.” And he’s going to try, bringing buckets of blood along with him.

Alien: Covenant 4-Minute Prologue Video Introduces the Crew

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It has been nearly five years since we have seen a movie from the Alien franchise in theaters, and a whole lot longer since we have seen a truly great entry in the legendary sci-fi series. That looks like it all may change this summer when Alien: Covenant scares its way into theaters, a movie that has inspired a lot of confidence and hope in fans up to this point. Now we have some brand new footage from the movie, giving us a new look at the latest Alien entry.

Fox debuted this new footage during the latest episode of FX's Legion. It is a 4-minute prologue from the movie that features James Franco and Danny McBride. While it may not be a trailer, this may actually be better in some sense. It is actually the official prologue to Alien: Covenant, which introduces the crew of the mission as they »

Newswire: Here’s a photo of the crew of Alien: Convenant in happy times

21 February 2017 12:40 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

This morning, 20th Century Fox unveiled a photo of the crew of the Covenant, the ship that’s inevitably going to run into some trouble in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant. It seems these space travelers just had a nice dinner, complete with some whiskey, and we even detect some smiles that will soon be wiped off their faces.

The group is flanked by Katherine Waterston and Michael Fassbender, the latter of whom is back from Prometheus. Elsewhere, you can spot Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Jussie Smollett, Danny McBride and Demián Bichir. Notably, James Franco is prominently featured at the center of the image, draped in some sort of blanket, staring dead-eyed into the camera. That placement seems to indicate that ...

New 'Alien: Covenant' Image Confirms James Franco Casting

21 February 2017 11:49 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Ahead of a sneak peek Wednesday, a new image from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant has been released, showing the full crew of the Covenant for the first time — including the debut of a particularly dapper and presumably ill-fated James Franco.

Franco seemed curiously absent from the first trailer for Ridley Scott's follow-up to his 2012 franchise prequel Prometheus (although it's possible that he's the unfortunate figure who gets alien particulate in his ear at the 1:11 mark), so the sight of him standing in the center of the new image, wearing a blanket that looks like a robe, in »

Full crew image released for Alien: Covenant

Ahead of a new Alien: Covenant trailer sneaking in during the next episode of Legion on FX tomorrow evening, 20th Century Fox has released a new image of the full Alien: Covenant crew including a first look at James Franco as Captain Branson.

The crew picture which includes the movie’s stars, Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby, has a few too many smiles radiating out of the image. Where guessing they’ve all polished off that empty bottle of Jack Daniels on the table just a little too quickly.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Cast Assembles In New Look at Ridley Scott’s Much-Hyped Sequel

21 February 2017 8:24 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ridley Scott’s latest addition to the franchise he created more than forty years ago, “Alien: Covenant” doesn’t hit theaters until May 18th, but 20th Century Fox has released a new photo of the star-studded crew in the meantime. The studio will also air a sneak peek of the sci-fi thriller during FX’s broadcast of Noah Hawley’s critically acclaimed “Legion.”

The original “Alien” has a long list of sequels and prequels, most recently 2012’s “Prometheus,” which drew mixed reactions from fans and critics alike. “Covenant” picks up where “Prometheus” left off, with Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce returning to their roles. Rounding out the cast of “Covenant” are James Franco, Amy SeimetzKatherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, and, Jussie Smollett.

Alien: Covenant Crew Photo Has First Look at James Franco

21 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you didn't believe that James Franco was going to be part of the Alien: Covenant cast before, here's your definitive proof. 20th Century Fox has released the official Covenant Crew photo, and we see Franco standing front and center looking Jesus like in his white robes, and he's seen standing next to his frequent on-screen collaborator and sometimes comedy partner Danny McBride. Fox had this to say about the photo.

"Introducing the Alien Covenant crew. Check out the new photo below from the upcoming film, then watch Legion on FX tomorrow, February 22, for an exclusive Alien: Covenant debut."

So far, 20th Century Fox has released only one teaser trailer for Alien: Covenant. And this latest sneak peek doesn't sound like it will be the full-trailer either. Which makes us think that director Ridley Scott is being sneaky on his build-up to the May 19, 2017 release date. Perhaps much of the thrills, »

New Alien: Covenant Photo Confirms James Franco’s Role

21 February 2017 7:59 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Alien: Covenant continues to potentially be one of Ridley Scott’s most interesting movies. It isn’t just interesting because of the mythology that it hitches itself to, but rather how it ended up being an Alien film in the first place. First coined as a Prometheus sequel, it wasn’t long before Scott settled on an Alien name, the first being Alien: Paradise Lost. That one didn’t last too long, for a few weeks later, it was confirmed that the title change was Alien: Covenant. Why Covenant? Well, that’s the name of the ship that we’ll be riding with for the duration of the journey, and when all said and done, it certainly makes for a less pretentious title.

But what would the film be about? That was the $10,000 question, wasn’t it? Well, this one looks to be both a sequel to the divisive Prometheus, »

Bd Wong’s Shady Geneticist Will Be Back For Jurassic World 2

20 February 2017 7:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ahead of its launch next June, production on Universal’s Jurassic World 2 is officially underway in London, and it appears those early rumors linking Bd Wong with Juan Antonio Bayona’s monstrous sequel were right all along.

Taking to Instagram over the course of the weekend, Wong all but confirmed that he’ll reprise the role of shady geneticist Dr. Henry Wu, who was last seen fleeing Isla Nublar by helicopter with a raft of dinosaur embryos. Towards the end of Colin Trevorrow’s franchise revival, we learned that Wu actually held an alliance with Vic Hoskins (Vincent D’Onofrio) that involved licensing InGen’s research to the military. And we all know how much Hoskins wanted to assimilate the Velociraptors onto the battlefield.

Can we expect to see Wong’s pioneering research stretch beyond the parameters of Costa Rica come 2018? It would certainly appear so. Besides, such a plot »
