In 2104, almost eleven years after the disastrous expedition to the distant moon, LV-223, in Prometheus (2012), the deep-space colonisation vessel, USCSS Covenant, is on course for the remote planet, Origae-6, with more than 2,000 colonists in cryogenic hibernation to build a new world. Instead, a rogue transmission entices the crew to a nearby habitable planet which resembles Earth. As a result, the unsuspecting crewmembers of the Covenant will have to cope with biological foes beyond human comprehension. Now, what started as a peaceful exploratory mission, will soon turn into a desperate rescue operation in uncharted space. Is there an escape from the treacherous, mysterious planet?Written by
The extended material from the Blu-ray release contain scenes of David in his lab, known as "Advent", mixing various parts from Neomorphs (and possibly Shaw's mutated eggs), using black goo as a catalyst to create his Xenomorph eggs. See more »
In the second half of the movie, in the first scene where Daniels is sitting on the ground out in the rain by the laptop asking the crew on the ship to drop the cargo lift we can hear her voice loud and clear, but her mouth is not moving. See more »

Chinese version was heavily edited to get an approval from film censor's office. Beside violent scenes, almost any scene with an Alien was cut/shortened so you can barely see the creatures. The kiss between David and Walter was removed as well. See more »
I think people have too high expectation to new movies of famous franchises, and when it doesn't come to their expectation, they just freak out and start giving one out of ten. If you have seen lots of harsh criticism for this movie, I say it's not bad at all. It's still quite entertaining. To be fair, lots of good horror movies are barely above 6 out of ten. So don't avoid it just because people say they hate it. It's true that they throw lots of (probably too many) elements into this movie, which might turn out to be less exciting. However, the ending succeeds in opening up to more stories, which is good. Also, keep in mind that this is not meant to be like the previous alien movies. It has totally different theme. I bet Ridley is a totally different person now. I would be surprised if he makes a new alien movie with similar tone to the older ones. And it's sensible for the old Ridley to explore the "creation" stuffs. I think it's a fairly good sequel to Prometheus. Look, now we have a new franchise directed by Ridley Scott himself, which is some what relates to the alien franchise. That is just great.
