First Look at ‘Alien: Covenant’ Reveals Destruction

Alien: Covenant | via Fox

The first officially released shot from the set of Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant has been released. The photo shows a production monitor that reveals an image from the shoot of Katherine Waterston laying against the wall of a hallway, a weapon of some sort resting against her leg, wires exposed and hanging from the ceiling and a fire in the distance. Clearly, something has gone awry in the events leading up to this moment.

Michael Fassbender is returning as Prometheus‘ android David, with Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Jobs, The Babysitters) leading a new crew that includes Demian Bichir and the hilarious Danny McBride (“Eastbound and Down”), as well as Alex England (Gods of Egypt), Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die, “The Killing”), Jussie Smollett (“Empire”), Carmen Ejogo, and Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills).

Alien: Covenant is currently shooting in New Zealand. It is scheduled for theaters on August 4th, 2017.

    Looks a lot less high tech and battered alright. Seems like they follow up on what they promised

  • Rezzzz

    I hope that this is done right!!

  • Reanimated Charlie

    I would be lying if I didn’t say this has me a little stoked for the film.

    there were some INCREDIBLE looking outdoor sets from this movie posted on TheDailyMail a couple of days ago and they looked stunning! in some pics it showed frozen in place/charred corpses of people as well as some pix how ENORMOUS tree trunks (i assume the rest of the trees will be CGI’d in in post). seeing those pix made me very excited for this movie!

    I POSTED THE DAILY MAIL LINK for those interested but nope of course Bloody-disgusting wouldn’t allow the link to post. now watch, Mr. D will post the dailymail pics/link as if he found it himself.

    I wanted a Prometheus direct sequel really really bad and Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 sounded great but this one is starting to look pretty interesting too, to be honest.

  • Varg2000

    Although I’m still upset about them not sticking to the real Prometheus storyline with Shaw and David on their way to “Paradise” (which I think should have been the title of the sequel), this is kind of interesting.

  • Josh Evans

    It had its issues, but I really enjoyed Prometheus overall. Looking forward to the next film as well!

      me to man

    • aNYagenda

      Did you also enjoy lost?

      Apparently a lot of people like what lindelof does, it only infuriates me.

      • Josh Evans

        I did not enjoy lost, I thought the name was a good way to describe the screenwriters during its creation. 😉

  • Harbottle64

    Wow! Thanks, JJ! :o)

    • J Jett

      no problem, Harbottle! those are awesome sets/pics!

  • REC03

    im still pressed about Alien 5 but im so happy they are going back to the style of the original from what it seems like.

  • Alanmac

    Has that dark gritty look to it!!! CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!

  • boaaa82 .

    hell yeah its about time cant wait

  • brewers_rule

    Someone say destructor cometh?

  • diapers

    Nice find. Very cool.

  • aNYagenda

    Everything I’ve heard about this so far sounds like the same crap he did prometheus.
    We’re searching for answers, it makes references to the bible, its named after the spaceship, its got a new ellen ripley…

    Ridley’s become a shameless hack in his old age.
    He’s probably just sure that people are going to go see it no matter how bad it is just for putting Alien in the title, but I’m not falling for prometheus twice.

    • Scott now talks like the original Alien was all his idea. He’s clearly entered into his “I can do no wrong”/surrounded by Yes-men phase. I’ll watch it but I’m prepared for another Prometheus. He’ll butcher it and then call it “great”. He makes a nice looking flick but he’s too full of himself. :/

  • I want to know how they’re going to explain away Elizabeth Shaw’s disappearance. I hope it’s not just a deus ex machina moment. If she’s not around, I really want to know why… unless she just happens to have drowned or had her face smashed in during cryosleep. In which case I think they should rename the movie to Alien: Convenient.
