Michael Fassbender and Carmen Ejogo featured on new Alien: Covenant image

13 January 2017 4:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Empire, we’ve got a new image from Ridley Scott’s hotly-anticipated sci-fi horror Alien: Covenant, which features Michael Fassbender’s android Walter alongside Carmen Ejogo’s as-yet-unrevealed character. Check it out here…

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, 2017 and is penned by Michael Green, »

Alien: Covenant 2 Book Sequel Is Coming in September

12 January 2017 2:11 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Here's a strange bit of news. Alien: Covenant 2 is already planned and will be coming this September. Just five months after Ridley Scott's prequel Alien: Covenant hits the big screen in May. Alas, this follow-up is a book and won't be playing at the local cinema anytime soon.

This may be perplexing for some, as Alien: Covenant, which is the sequel to Prometheus and a prequel to the original 1979 classic Alien, is said to be the first in a new trilogy of movies coming over the span of the next couple of years. But so massive is this story, there needs to be a sequel book to fill in some of the gaps.

Alien: Covenant is just a mere 4 and a half months away, and will help kick off the summer movie going season when it debuts the weekend of May 19. The movie promises to be more of a scary horror thriller than Prometheus, »

New Alien: Covenant Still Sees Michael Fassbender & The Crew Observing The Unknown

12 January 2017 9:45 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Straight from the pages of Empire Magazine's December issue, this new Alien: Covenant image gives us a great new look at Michael Fassbender's Walter and Carmen Ejogo's undisclosed character. In this new still, the Covenant crew are gathered around and observing what appears to be a hologram of some sort. Could this be another mystery left by the Engineers, or could it be a recording that showcases what became of David and Noomi Rapace’s Dr. Elizabeth Shaw? That remains to be seen, but for now check out the new image below to see what you can find.    “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 stars Michael Fassbender, »

Flickering Myth’s most anticipated movies of 2017

12 January 2017 7:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth get excited for the year ahead of us…

After a fairly below-average year at the cinema last year, we here at Flickering Myth are feeling rather hopeful for 2017. There are some fantastic films lined up; including a load of comic book movies, the return of Christopher Nolan and King Kong, a new Alien film and a War for the Planet of the Apes. There’s even a new Blade Runner film! Wait… King Kong, Alien, Planet of the Apes, Blade Runner… are we sure this isn’t 1987?..

Twenty-one of our writers voted for a whopping forty-seven movies, with a very tight final top ten. Last year Captain America: Civil War topped our most anticipated movies beating out Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Deadpool and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It’s probably fair to say that at least three of those movies delivered, but we’ll let you decide which ones. »

'Alien: Covenant,' 'Justice League' and More 2017 Heavyweights Offer Up New Images

9 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Every summer sees Hollywood unleashing its biggest franchises. There's something unique about 2017's crop of movies, though: the biggest are all either remakes or sequels. USA Today put out their preview piece today, which gives us new images from the fifth Transformers movie, the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean, the sixth Alien (not counting the AvP movies), the third Zack Snyder Dceu movie, and the latest live-action remake of a classic animated movie. And while it may be easy to gripe that none of these are original films, it's hard not to be excited about certain things in each of them. So let's take a look.   Alien: Covenant In theaters: May 19, 2017 [Image Credit: Mark Rogers; 20th Century Fox] The first Alien is through and through a horror...

Alien: Covenant Photo Has a Bloody, Battle-Scarred Katherine Waterston

9 January 2017 12:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2017 is absolutely jam-packed with sequels to many of Hollywood's most bankable and beloved franchises, but Alien: Covenant is quickly climbing the ladder and becoming one of the most anticipated movies of the year. We recently got to see the first trailer for Ridley Scott's upcoming installment of the Alien franchise, which promises to be a return-to-form, scary space adventure. Now, a new image of Katherine Waterston's character Daniels has been released and falls right in line with the theme of terror for Alien: Covenant.

The photo was released by USA Today as part of a preview of the "must see" movies coming out this year. Following the release of the first trailer, it is pretty safe to say that Alien: Covenant now falls into that category. This new picture shows Daniels, who is one of the crewmembers of the colony ship Covenant, and she appears to be having a pretty rough day. »

Considering how battered and bruised 2016 left the world in general, the only sane thing to do is look at 2017 with caution and fear. Except for the movies. The movies look pretty cool.

Seductive New Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Image, And Various Other New Movie Stills

9 January 2017 12:00 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Ok, so maybe this pic would be more seductive, at least to me, if it was Gamora's head in the forefront of the image as opposed to Drax's fat noggin. Instead, Star-Lord is giving much more of an incredulous look, perhaps Drax is pondering the metaphorical meaning of life, maybe he is wondering how a planet could also be a father, or it's possible he decided that everyone is responsible for killing his family so everyone must die. Either way, more and more images of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 are trickling in and I'll take what I can get concerning one of my favorite franchises of all time.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is the sequel to Guardians Of The Galaxy, a surprise megahit in the Marvel superfranchise, that focuses on a group of space "pirates" turned heroes, the aftermath of Ronin's defeat, and the relationship with »

The photo is of Covenant crew member Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Jobs, The Babysitters) doing her best impersonation of Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver).

International Trailers For Baywatch Tease Sun, Sea And Shenanigans

9 January 2017 9:40 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Protect the Bay at all costs. That’s the underlying message found in today’s pair of international trailers for Paramount’s Baywatch movie, but you better believe that Dwayne Johnson’s Mitch Buchannon and the gang are going to have some fun while doing so.

Held up as the elite of the elite, the core Baywatch team is comprised of Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera and Jon Bass, who all band together to combat Priyanka Chopra’s power-mongering oil tycoon – and save a few lives along the way, of course. There’s not an awful lot of new footage when considering the film’s original, raunchy trailer, but between the two promos, you’ll no doubt be able to locate a handful of new shots and gags to sate your appetite.

Among them is a scene of Zac Efron’s heartthrob Matt Brody describing one »

It’s that time of year as the most anticipated pieces are still trickling in and all media outlets are looking forward to what comes next in 2017. So, that means newspapers like USA Today are revealing new photos from many upcoming films.

The Ripley-Esque Daniels Gears Up For A Firefight In Latest Pic For Alien: Covenant

9 January 2017 7:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With pulse rifle in hand, Katherine Waterston’s character fends off an off-screen nasty in the latest pic for Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott’s upcoming horror-thriller set to bring his prequel series closer to the original Alien lore.

One element that’s instrumental in such a creative process, according to reports, is Waterston’s Daniels, a passenger on board the Covenant ship who becomes embroiled in a desperate fight for survival once the shit hits the fan. The Xenomorphs are back, back, back, and below you’ll find Katherine Waterston channeling one Ellen Ripley as she prepares to open fire.

Indeed, if those rumors are on point, Alien: Covenant will introduce Waterston as Ripley’s mother, neatly dovetailing her arc with that of Scott’s 1979 classic. It’s a comparison that Waterston herself has addressed in the past – and one that she will likely be quizzed about right up until »

New Alien: Covenant image released, Katherine Waterston acknowledges similarities between Daniels and Ripley

9 January 2017 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

USA Today recently shared a new image of Alien: Covenant star Katherine Waterston entrenched in battle.

Waterston also acknowledges the similarities between Daniels and original heroine Ripley, stating: “You don’t really know what you’re made of until you’re tested. They are both able to somehow think clearly in really shocking, unimaginable scenarios. It’s fun to play someone who can thrive in that chaos.”

Alien: Covenant Trailer & Images!

6 January 2017 10:04 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

We are sorely behind sharing all the great Alien: Covenant material that's been hitting the web recently, so I'm rectifying that by posting it all here.

Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with the ambitious and unique Prometheus, Alien: Covenant is said to connect directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 Alien.

It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “syntheticâ€. David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
