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.

  • David Tucker

    I wish they would’ve used that inside steelbook cover for one of the covers. I’m just not digging the baby Xenomorph design. I’ll most likely go with the Target exclusive.

  • James

    No amount of deleted scenes could save this travesty of a film. I so wanted to like this movie but it was horrible in nearly every way possible.

    • Bullshit!

      No it wasn’t.

      • James

        Yes it was. This movie was embarrassing.

        • Bullshit!

          No it wasn’t.

          • James

            Yes it was. Ridley is a great director but the latest alien film was shockingly lazy and embarrassing on the every level.

          • Bullshit!

            No it wasn’t.

          • James

            You obviously have terrible taste in film and that’s ok.

          • Bullshit!

            No I don’t,
            and yes, it is.

    • The chicken man

      No, it was awesome. Some people are just hooked on hating things.

      • Bullshit!

        You sir are correct…on both counts.

  • Pf Mahan

    Sadly, I believe Ridley is out of fresh ideas for this series, I want Alien 5

    • Bullshit!

      No he isn’t.

      • hatter76

        did you Join today just to defend a Movie from Peoples Opinions? if so, then share an actual Opinion rather than just posting in protest to
        someone sharing theirs

        • Bullshit!



          • hatter76

            No you don’t want to share an actual Opinion?

            now fair warning, I am not a basher of this film! so be careful to continue defending the film from the right people

          • Bullshit!

            Okily dokily,
            understood, loud & clear.

    • Hugh Finnegan

      I don’t think it was all his fault – I think the studio interfered as usual and he cut out stuff. I saw clips in the trailer that weren’t in the finished movie. Personally, I think they should have stuck to the Prometheus story a lot better than they did instead of just washing over it

    • Jake Logan

      Alien 5 is dead and should stay that way.

  • Necro

    Booklet looks interesting

  • J Jett

    i want that book.

  • SpacemanSpliffz

    i enjoyed the hell out of this flick, and will be getting my copy from walmart, cool alien shirt ftw!!!

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    They’re REALLY trying to make up for some of that lost revenue.

    Alien had been my favorite movie franchise for decades. I think a person’s enjoyment of this film depends on whether you consider Prometheus a reboot of the series or if you view it as a prequel to the main series. It also unfortunately requires you to ignore the basic concept behind science fiction, that rules can be established and adhered to within a fictional universe which allow the audience the luxury of suspension of disbelief. If this movie is truly a prequel, then it is highly inconsistent with Ridley’s original 1979 film and highly suggests that James Cameron’s 1986 Aliens is about to be retconned.

    Consider the following:

    The engineer’s bio-weapon (black goo) either was used to create the dispersal pods for the airborne Neomorph pathogen or was derived from it, which means David then would have went out planting the pods as traps. It seems unlikely the engineers would have built a vast metropolis within walking distance of highly dangerous and contagious Flora. The pods would seemingly be more effective than Xenomorphic facehugger eggs as they are far easier to inadvertently trigger.

    The Neomorphs are somewhat exempt from being criticized as they are brand new creatures and as such, have no previous examples for comparison.

    The Xenomorphs in this film grow as rapidly as the Neomorphs, and presumably can endure point blank pump action (presumably shotgun) rounds as infants since the back bursting infant Neomorph displays this durability. (David remarks the Xenomorph is a perfect organism.) The growth rate is inconsistent with Alien 1979.

    Orem’s chestburster bursts immediately as he regains consciousness, unlike Cain’s in Alien 1979. The Xenomorphs are also fully formed and there are no indications that growth stages occur or that the Xenomorphs molt exoskeleton(s?).

    Facehuggers can now be cut off and removed after latching and impregnating victims such as with Lope, and acid to the face is no longer lethal as was the case with Drake in Aliens 1986. The impregnation appears to now be near instantaneous unlike Alien 1979. Acid blood in Alien 1979 will also eat through multiple decks of a starship – Daniels cautions Tennessee about firing due to this reason during the final confrontation.

    Orem’s chestburster is near immediate while Lope’s takes a long while, possibly due to the strong sedative he was given back on the Covenant after escaping the planet, but the bursting should have occurred at the latest during Daniels’ crane fight with the first Xenomorph.

    David says his creations ignore ‘the meat’, yet the first Xenomorph directly runs into the jaws of Daniels’ crane and can be clearly seen attacking and clawing at it as if to do damage prior to the jaws being triggered to close by Daniels.

    The second Xenomorph leaps upward at an arc and crashes through catwalk netting and railing to chase Daniels but apparently lacks the dexterity to avoid being caught up in the netting, much like a slasher film villain. This momentary hindrance allows Daniels time to run into the truck cab.

    Both Xenomorphs and Neomorphs can endure multiple direct hits from automatic weapons fire. This may be due to the rounds being standard. The M41-A pulse rifles in Aliens 1986 use 10mm explosive tipped caseless rounds.

    In general, the Xenomorphs exhibit completely different behavior than in Alien 1979. They are far more aggressive and apparently survival is secondary to relentlessly pursuing armed prey openly. Stealth is not preferred, even whilst alone – single Xenomorphs attack groups of people. The Xenomorph in Alien 1979 largely ignores Ripley when she’s inside the Narcissus escape shuttle. Xenomorphs are now also apparently detectable by starship internal sensors. Aliens 1986 establishes that the Xenomorphs do not appear on infrared. It is unknown what sensors the Covenant, a Weyland-Yutani ship, carries.

    These are just a few of my thoughts. I didn’t hate the film but found issue with these observations; I find that thinking of it now like a slasher film rather than a science fiction horror franchise film softens the disappointment.
