We’ve Got the Brand New ‘Alien: Covenant’ Trailer and It’s INSANE!

Holy shit, you guys. Holy. Shit.

If you were bummed that Prometheus was less an Alien prequel and more of its own thing, well, let’s just say you’re going to be insanely happy with this year’s Alien: Covenant. Ridley Scott is back with a brand new installment in the saga that began in 1979, and this new trailer is honestly one of the coolest we’ve ever seen. I’m having a hard time even forming words right now.

The trailer, running 90-seconds long, plays out like a super intense trip through Hell itself, and it’s absolutely loaded with creatures both familiar and brand new. We already saw a Face Hugger in the previous trailer, which hit back in December, but this one also showcases the brand new Neomorph, a white-colored, fast-moving beast that is sure to scare the shit out of audiences.

And then, towards the end of the trailer, he arrives.

As we’ve recently reported, Alien: Covenant will feature one of the classic-style Xenomorphs we were first introduced to back in 1979, and goddamn does the beast look cooler than ever.

You also get to see Katherine Waterson being totally badass as new female heroine Daniels, who is very likely going to be giving Xeno-slayer Ellen Ripley a run for her money.

Enjoy. And try not to completely lose your mind.

Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Jobs, The Babysitters), doing her best impersonation of Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), stars with Michael Fassbender returning as Prometheus‘ android David (and Walter), with a crew that includes Demian Bichir and 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). James Franco also has a role, which was confirmed in this fun crew photo.

Fox Just Released an Alien: Covenant Short Film That Introduces the Crew!

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

Scott had previously promised to answer questions that left Prometheus viewers confused: “Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why.”

Alien: Covenant takes off for Paradise on May 19, 2017.

    CGI aliens….awesome!

    • Nealus

      Yeah…….not my favorite. Didn’t work out very well in Alien 3 but Resurrection had an interesting blend of practical fx and CGI. I really don’t like when directors use CGI in this franchise. It just seems like a slap in the face. Anyway, the trailer is pretty strong. I’m super excited for May 19th I just really hope Scott incorporated some solid practical fx to balance out the often times lazy CGI.

      • wedellbudwhite

        In alien 3 it wasn’t cgi it was a puppet

        • Nealus

          Wrong. They used both.

          • wedellbudwhite

            The only cgi they used was a tiny bit at the end when it get doused. The cracks are cgi and they look fine. All the running around that everyone thinks looks horrible is a puppet.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Lol. You got owned.

    • J Jett

      REC03, i thought the Ultramorph(?) at the end (attacking the ship)…if that’s CGI, it looks fantastic IMO.

  • Weresmurf

    Holy fucking shit that looks great!!!

  • Cool to have a big budget alien movie, but I gotta say it didn’t blow me away

  • Andrew Flynn

    1:22 Mark, is that David standing in the background watching the egg open up?

    • Brian McNatt

      It’s definitely one of Fassbender’s android characters.

      • J Jett

        Brian that’s true. i also am fairly sure that the cloaked figure we see holding a gun/weapon over his head is David. we see him later walking through all the charred corpses heading towards a cathedral type structure.

    • MaryMaria

      Oh snap! I didn’t even notice him there!

  • Brian McNatt

    Oh, this looks good. Will be interesting to see the xenomorph in a variety of different environments this time, including outside in what looks like day? I think that’s a first for the series? And that shot of the xenomorph leaping from wall to wall! The actual physical speed and strength of the creature is something we haven’t really seen showcased since Aliens, I’d say.

    • J Jett

      wasn’t the dog-like xeno in ALIEN 3 as agile as the one you’re referring to? it’s been so long since i’ve seen A3 that i can’t quite remember.

      • PsychoMantis18

        You are correct, Jett.

        McNutts is most likely the typical Aliens fan that doesn’t appreciate the series as much as they do loud noises and big guns.

    • wedellbudwhite

      The alien in alien 3 shows heaps of speed. Runs on every surface jumps a huge distance out of molten lead etc. in resurrection they bash through steel doors, swim with speed and agility and jump a great distance out of the water onto a ladder. So I’d say it has been showcased since aliens

      • Brian McNatt

        Eh. Vast majority of Alien 3 moments were from the alien’s POV, so it’s not really something the audience “saw”. And the jumping out of lead part is mostly overshadowed by the whole “it can survive molten lead!” thing. In Resurrection they take a very, very long time to bash through those metal doors (certainly longer than it takes them in Aliens), and the jumping out of the water bit is way weakened by the downright leisurely stroll it then decides to take up the ladder after the characters, lol.

        • wedellbudwhite

          You see the alien running plenty. Being overshadowed by it can survive molten lead( another show of strength) doesn’t mean “physical speed and strength” wasn’t showcased, it was. it doesn’t take long at all for the alien to break into Riply’s cell( also 200 years after Alien 3, doors could be stronger) again because it moves slowly up the ladder doesn’t mean its “physical speed and strength” wasn’t showcased. the alien in the first film moves very very leisurely so i don’t see any issue with that at all. also by you way of thinking any show of strength in Aliens is weakened when a small human female overpowers and pins an alien with her leg.

          • Brian McNatt

            “Overpowers” isn’t the right word. It’s basic martial arts to use positioning and leverage against a larger foe. You’ll notice the xenomorph flailing around aimlessly, where Vasquez uses focused moves in the lead-up to taking the shot.

            Let’s split the difference here. The xenomorph in 3 came from a dog and the xenomorphs in Resurrection were mutants, so I’ll amend my statement to be that this will be the first time since Aliens that we see the speed and strength of a normal, human-bred xenomorph on full display. It reminds me of the shots of the xenomorphs leaping from wall to wall during Ripley’s rescue of Newt.

        • PsychoMantis18

          Did you actually laugh when you finished that? Very demented.

          Lol.

    • PsychoMantis18
      • Brian McNatt

        Someone subjected me to a South Park reaction image. Truly, I have been thoroughly admonished.

        • PsychoMantis18

          A ‘South Park reaction image’?

          Now you have been thoroughly admonished.

  • Khy

    I’M FUCKING CRYING RIGHT NOW. Sheer amazement! May 19th cannot approach fast enough.

    • Crying? Are you high or what?

      • J Jett

        no Maynard, he’s excited for this movie and loved what he saw in the trailer? is English your second language? are you trying to be obtuse? or are you just trying to be jerk?

      • BloodyDisgusted

        Are you always a cunt? You sure do look like a cunt.

        • Yes, I’m always a cunt. Just like you I guess.

  • MaryMaria

    As excited as I am for this movie, I was all ready to roll my eyes at the hyperbole, but god DAMN- that’s a great trailer. Super looking forward to this!

  • llcc1103

    what up with the CGI and over the top scene at the end? A cgi alien head butting a window? Kinda corny if you ask me. I think the problem these days is budgets that are too big. Directors are lazy and rely too much on post.

    • J Jett

      really? i loved that ending scene with the Ultramorph(?). he looks nasty/fierce (in a good way).

  • Khy

    Katherine Waterston is going to KILL this. Brilliant actress!

    • J Jett

      i think her acting (from what i’ve seen in the trailers/vids) is really good! i just hate the haircut. it’s too bowl-cut-ish. but yeah, she’s doing a great job thus far and i really don’t think she’s trying to be Ripley 2.0.

      • Simon Allen

        I agree JJ ….it would have been better if she had Farrah Fawcett Flicks .

  • Wil McMullen

    I personally loved Prometheus… Ever since i heard the murmurs of there being a sequal coming out i have been awaiting this release. I enjoyed Alien and dug Aliens, but i can honestly say that i wasnt a fan like most. (No there is nothing wrong with me, i love horror and i am very particular when it comes to the types of movies i call my favorites). However when Prometheus came out the mythology of this series took on a whole new meaning and has made me a fan of the installments preceeding). I loved the whole premise of this Alien race given the ability to create life, in turn wanted to annihilate us with an organism manufactured by these same Engineers. The irony is how this orginasim turned on its creators (how ironic that we are supposed to fashioned in our Creators likeness- dont you find a certain Human Race to lend validity to that notion as humans have manafactured weapons to take out other nations- sometimes in those testing phases the manufactures have suffered lethel consequences from not fully understanding the consequences of these malicious creations that could ultimately in turn destroy life and earth itself.) Any who, im so exited for Covenant. This just adds a new layer to this series mythology. The Aliens are not particular on race when it comes to them taking out any form of life. May couldnt get here fast enough

  • RKSDooM

    Much, much, MUCH better trailer than the first one. Fingers crossed for a movie with good characters, the atmosphere of ALIEN and the complexity (but not the “mystery box-ness”) of PROMETHEUS.

  • zombie84_41

    meh this looks like shit scott is a hack to horror. nemomorphs look like shit too. that lesbian shes a rip off of helen ribley. seth rogen is useless being trapped behind a door, and jake gyenhall is pointless here too. and that henry winkler fucker is soooo outdated. promethus is soooo lame tooo i rather see that movie life that looks 509% better and it features ryan gosling, sam jackson, and chris hemsworth and features a splice alien like sooo uber cool. cant wait for life.

    Hehehehe fooled you

    • J Jett

      i believed you for a second there, zombie84! 🙂

      • zombie84_41

        hehe got ya got ya 😛 But this movie seriously looks batshit insane.

  • G.A. McGillivray

    Awesome!

    1. You can finally (again) see the eye sockets in the Xeno’s skull – although they are farther apart on this new one.

    2. This Xeno has more human like arms than the ‘normal’ Xeno we are used to.

    That’s it for now. I have to watch this many more times!

  • J Jett

    trying so hard not to watch this trailer………..TRYING SO HARD NOT TO WATCH THIS TRAILER………………………….and i failed! LOL.

    VERY good trailer. much better AND MUCH LESS SPOILERY than the first trailer.

  • DBZEROGRAVITY

    cgi aside… that was awesome

  • J Jett

    so the dog tags that Daniels find ARE Noomi’s Dr. E. Shaw.

    http://www.imagebam.com/image/7ac285535452792

    • DBZEROGRAVITY

      nice find

      • J Jett

        thanx! is that the Ultramorph (i think it’s going to be in this movie) attacking the ship at the end?

        • Sky Commander

          I’d hope that’s a Space Jockey born Xenomorph and no I’m not calling them Engineers they’ll always be Space Jockey’s to me

          • J Jett

            that would be an interesting hybrid!

  • ShadowInc

    I’m a bit disappointed by this trailer. It looks like the usual formula ALIEN plot, only this one takes place on the planet from Prometheus. I hope there is more to it than the same old “people getting infected, and then chased by xenomorphs”.

    • PsychoMantis18

      So…. not an Alien film….?

      • Saturn

        I know – hopefully the next Friday The 13th won’t be just a guy in a hockey mask killing people.

        • PsychoMantis18

          Don’t be ridiculous.

      • ShadowInc

        How about a different type of ALIEN film? I liked that PROMETHEUS branched out, and was hoping the film was going to continue in that direction.

        • PsychoMantis18

          I get ya – you don’t want a film with xenomorphs being xenomorphs.

          It’s like saying you don’t want another Godfather with gangsters shooting each other – it’s part of the territory.

          • ShadowInc

            Apparently you don’t get me. I’d prefer different aspects of the ALIEN universe being explored. Kinda like they did with PROMETHEUS. Show me more about the Engineers, and their home world, or DIFFERENT types of aliens that they might have created.

          • PsychoMantis18

            So you’ve seen Covenant?

  • James

    Now I’m finally intrigued

  • Matt Miller

    This is great, I can’t wait for this movie but I don’t know. It looks intense and violent but that last scene is too campy in my opinion. I liked the more serious tone in Prometheus, this looks more over the top. And it’s cool but the trailer makes me think that I shouldn’t expect good characters, atmosphere or an innovative story. I know that I’ll enjoy it anyway but I expected something more of Ridley Scott.

    • Christopher Nickerson

      Just so jo one gets killed because a slow moving object is rolling at them and they continue to run in a straight line instead of veering right or left. That really killed the last act of Prometheus, stupid people.

      • spl85

        I always assumed they were running in the ships shadow (in front of it) to avoid all the falling debris from sky. It just didn’t work out so good for Vickers..

        • Mehliens

          Dont remind me that they killed off Vickers 🙁

  • J Jett

    is that Shaw’s dead body (the corpse’s entire stomach area is cut/exploded open) in the top left-ish hand side of the pic?……

    http://www.imagebam.com/image/9cc85d535454890

    maybe they find Shaw’s alien exploded corpse and bring it back to the base for examination? oh and i still want to know why no one is wearing helmets when they go to investigate the planet.

    • DBZEROGRAVITY

      could be. might also be an autopsy on one of the crew. possibly franco, since he nowhere to be found in the trailer, or one of the infected. lots of diagrams there, I see one of a facehugger against the wall behind the corpse

      • J Jett

        i noticed many of the diagrams but i didn’t notice the face hugger photo/diagram behind the corpse. good eye! although if you rotate the picture 180 there’s an actual dead face hugger on the table! also i wonder where this room is located? i assume it’s what David (from Prometheus) was using for his storage/investigating the aliens/face huggers. maybe the crew finds that room (and finds Shaw’s dead body?) and are investigating (since they have guns and are acting cautiously)?

    • Carlton Fisher

      If they already had atmospheric readings o show that he air was breathable, then they wouldn’t necessarily NEED helmets (at least in sci-fi logic–this of course automatically assumes that there are no pathogens in the breathable air that could cause…oh…wait…..now I know why there are no helmets).

  • This looks so fucking meh, it’s insane.

  • Maybe I’m weird, but I actually liked that Prometheus wasn’t a direct prequel to Alien. I’m more bummed out that they already seemed to have aborted that idea.

    This looks fine, though. Even if all the trailers sucked for this, I’d still see it.

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      is because people who did not understood Prometheus complained a lot and by some reason the movie makers listened to them

  • boaaa82 .

    We’ll shit I don’t know about you guys but I’m really looking forward to this movie

    • PsychoMantis18

      Sounds like somebody wants some upvotes.

  • Morteus

    “We’ve Got the Brand New ‘Alien: Covenant’ Trailer and It’s INSANE!”

    Well the hype certainly is…

  • Not a bad trailer by any means, but I regret watching. Shows far, far too much.. including what looks to be the big climactic scene.

    • Barry El Beardo

      Shows WAY too much. Keep the Alien a mystery. We were teased at the end of Prometheus with an early stage xenomorph, let us find out if the original will be there. Don’t show us in the freeking trailer -.-

      • Carlton Fisher

        Didn’t they already show us on the poster?

    • abyx34

      Yes way too spoily, I regret watching it.

    • Rick-Taylor

      Thank you. I was on the fence. Now I am not watching, until the movie comes out.

  • Jonathan Larsson

    Looks more like a traditional Alien movie, but with more weight to it’s story. I do get the feeling that they over-exposed the traditional Alien in the trailer in order to up the hype, but with that said, it does seem deliver all the things you need to make it worthwhile watching, plus some new things that makes it stand out more as opposed to the rest.

  • Alanmac

    Now THIS is the Alien trailer I was wanting back in December!!!!!!! Looks fantastic!!!!

  • Nahuel Benvenuto

    looks good

  • BloodyDisgusted

    CGI4eva. Seriously, this looks great.

  • Looks amazing!
    I’ll see in the theaters with my 12 years old brother, because in Portugal the underage persons can see rated R films.

    • Paul Chach Mcarthy

      And we wonder why kids grow up to be violent terrorists.

      • Dude you’re being just sad, it’s all a question about education, my brother knows everything in a movie is fake!
        There are a lot of good christians kids, that only see Disney films and dream about to kill people in their schools. Look to some to terrorists, they grow up being forbidden of to do a lot of things and they kill people.

  • Halloween_Vic

    Well we all know David did it and that’s obvious. Trailer seems cool I’m sure we’ll only see the Xeno for like 5 min in the actual film.

    • That’s what I was just thinking from watching this. Perhaps David and Shaw only show up at the end as some sort of reveal.

      • The Drucifer

        I think Shaw is an alien by this point

        • That would certainly make sense. I just hope it’s not an Alien 3 situation where it’s like “oh yeah, there’s her ‘sploded body. Moving on.”

          • The Drucifer

            I think David’s been busy

          • The Drucifer

            No, she’s the neomorph is what I’m thinking. David’s been a tinkering.

      • Halloween_Vic

        Hmm that’s a good point.

      • Halloween_Vic

        Because we still have no clue as to what role Shaw will have with all this playing out.

      • Paul Chach Mcarthy

        She isn’t in it. Rapace never signed up to do AC. However a new rumour says she might turn up for a cameo just for continuity, which is often not the strong point of Riddler Scott movies.

  • Prince Of Darkness

    Why do I get the feeling that this is going to be one of those movies that gets analyzed to death and the plot spoiled before it’s even released. We already got JJett taking his famous screenshots, god help us if he gets a hold of the screenplay. The film looks promising, but the CGI aliens will never scare audiences the way the original did.

    • Rick-Taylor

      Hello and welcome to the internet. Over here, you will see analyzing and damnation of pre-released films. Over there, you will see political posts written vehemently even though the author doesn’t know what they are talking about. Finally, all the way over there, you will see people who believe in wacko food trends but dismiss science evidence.

    • Paul Chach Mcarthy

      What plot? The plot for this will read like a porno flick. A group of young married swinger couples fly off into space to breed some kids on a planet inhabited by alien vagina penises that skull rape people who then birth monstrous penis mouthed proto human type aliens that go on a killing rampage using their mouth penises to penetrate people’s skulls.

      Maybe they should have called it Swingers in Space. The tagline could have been, in space, no hears you wife swap.

  • Carlton Fisher

    For Christ’s sake, can we stop with the damn “Ellen Ripley impersonation” line in every single article. Believe it or not, women are distinct, individual beings, even if they occasionally do something similar to another woman. We don’t here about a “Chief Brody imitation” for every singe reluctant shark hunter, or a “Dutch impersonation” for every single person who goes up against a Predator. So can we let Waterston’s character be her own thing?

    • Ocelot006 .

      Yes. Obviously it has something to do with sexism…..Jesus Christ. Anytime anyone criticizes something about a woman, it has to be because they are a woman, right?…..or was this parody? 😛 My brain is all over the place today.

      • Carlton Fisher

        Actually, it’s a pretty frequent issue that women get posited as knock-offs or copies of one another with far more frequency than happens with men–whether it’s in movies, television, music, or whatever. We have, at his point, a grand total of–what?–about 40 seconds of Waterston’s character in action? But every single article on this site says she’s doing a Ripley imitation. Based on…..a haircut? It’s not like Ripley is the only woman in the series to wander around with a flame thrower and kick Xenomorph ass. Why does Daniels have to be a Ripley clone? Is Ripley the only woman in the entire galaxy capable of going up against the Aliens?

        • Ocelot006 .

          Oh lord it wasn’t parody.

          Yeah no one ever points to male characters as being Bond rip-offs, Bourne rip-offs, Bruce Willis rip-offs, Joker rip-offs. Never happens……oh wait.

          I mean really, it’s sexist to compare a female protagonist to another female protagonist in the same franchise?

          • Carlton Fisher

            Based on forty second of footage, it’s pretty idiotic the first time. To do it repeatedly in every single article on the same site is both idiotic and lazy.

          • Ocelot006 .

            Yes, based on the forty seconds of footage is plenty enough. It’s what is given to us and we are allowed to judge what’s given to us. If we are given a second clip of a spy in a tux, we are allowed to call it a Bond rip off because from what we are given it looks like a Bond rip off.

            What’s lazy is to jump to the conclusion of sexism.

          • Carlton Fisher

            It’s standard, textbook sexism. And making a judgment about a character who is central to a feature length movie based on that little information is lazy, and kind of stupid. Yes, you can do it. But just because you CAN do it, doesn’t mean it’s not lazy and kind of stupid.

          • Ocelot006 .

            Textbook sexism according to your community college women studies course.

            ‘When a man criticizes you it’s not because you did wrong. It’s because they are sexist!’ Logic! 😛

            This isn’t lazy and stupid. It’s taking what we are given and judging it. Simple as that. I mean if you said it looked awesome, should I give you shit for that? ‘It looked awesome!’ ‘Now wait bitch. You only saw forty seconds. That forty seconds is there simply to exist. Not be thought of.’

          • Paul Chach Mcarthy

            People that see sexism everywhere are usually the most sexist. Projection, it’s called.

          • Carlton Fisher

            Because everything in the world–including 40 seconds of a movie that will likely be over two hours long, deserves to be responded to. God forbid you wait until you could have an informed response.

            And I’m sorry your viewpoint about what constitutes “real” sexism is so narrow. Likely, it allows you to make excuses for much of your own behavior.

          • Ocelot006 .

            So it would appear you are telling me that one wouldn’t even be allowed to find forty seconds of footage to be ‘awesome’. So then please tell me why trailers are released if they are not allowed to be judged?

            My viewpoint of real sexism is narrow? You don’t even know what my viewpoint is real sexism is. All you know is I’m calling bullshit on this propaganda that you can’t criticize women at all. They’re human beings too last time I checked. Not above anyone.

          • Carlton Fisher

            Of course you could find forty seconds of footage to be “awesome.” And as we’ve learned from the same situation time and again, frequently the “awesome” trailer is for a crap movie. Which pretty much proves that you cannot judge the entire thing based on a fractional sampling of it.

            And I never said anything about you or anyone criticizing women. I said that it is reductionist and sexist to automatically make knee-jerk comparisons (or claim that they are “the same” or an “imitation”) between one woman and another based on almost no information, which is a phenomenon which occurs frequently within the culture–with far more frequency than it does for men. There are studies to back it up.

            You’re baiting and switching. I say one thing, and you try to paint it as saying something completely different. Is this because you hold some sort of polarized view that you feel the need to defend at all costs, or can you just not read?

          • Ocelot006 .

            Someone compared a character to another similar character. Yes they both happen to be women. That doesn’t translate to sexism. It’s not sexist to compare people. It just isn’t. People compare people to others. Especially fictional protagonists from the same film series. Give me evidence of sexist intent in comparing these two characters. There is none besides you wanting it to be sexism.

            Even if there exists truth that people compare women to other women more often that doesn’t mean every case of such comparison is a case of sexism.

          Only in the world of idiot manginas and liberal women.

      When Predators was being released, I remember quite a few people complaining about Adrian Brody being a poor-man’s Dutch while imitating a Christian Bale Batman voice. While Shaw was her own distinct character, most of the complaints at Waterson’s character is about her having a similar look to Ripley in Aliens. I am withholding judgement until I see the film.

      • Carlton Fisher

        Waiting until the film comes out at least makes sense. This site, on the other hand, repeats the exact same phrase with EVERY SINGLE ARTICLE about the movie.

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      is not this site, everywhere the call Waterson character a Ripley clon, as they did with Shaw in Prometheus, is just the simple midned people

  • sliceanddice

    looking good, confident it won’t be scary however but will be happy if it at least tries to be so.

    • Mehliens

      Test audiences called it scary as fuck though

  • Munchie

    I’ve got the new comment on this article and it’s INSANE!!!

  • Carl Chrystan

    I’m in Paris and I accidentally dropped my phone in the river and it’s IN-SEINE!

    • blueskythis

      LMAO

  • The Fucked Up

    I hereby solemnly vow to not watch the trailer…. let’s see how that works after a few beers

    • Rick-Taylor

      I’m with you. I’m in that “should I, shouldn’t I” mode. I enjoyed Prometheus as a movie in the Alien universe, but in no way connected to the Alien story. Those weren’t the space jockeys we saw in the original film and the other creatures are just the effect of the Xeno virus on other creatures. I don’t want a movie connecting Prometheus to Alien, but I really want to see this movie.

      • The Fucked Up

        Oh don’t get me wrong I’m watching this movie on opening day, I ‘ll just abstain from the trailers… still going strong despite the beers. Only 2 more months to go!

  • Wolf Kane

    I much prefer the way this trailer portrayed Katherine Waterston’s character. As for the rest of it AMAZING!!!

  • Anthony DeRouen

    Literally nothing new in this film. It’s a mashup of Alien and Prometheus. Disappointing.

    The CGI looked good – too much of it, but then again it’s a Ridley Scott movie.

  • blueskythis

    Looks slick and sexy-wicked-knarly as… and dripping in alien goo – looking forward to it very much!

  • Mehliens

    Looks cool as fuck. Now bring it on!

  • Can’t wait for the movie. I wish they’d stop using so much of the CGI Xenomorphs though, I always think the guys in the suits and the practical f/x always look much more convincing than the CGI ones.

    • sliceanddice

      From what i read there is an element of both practical and CGI in this movie.

      • Oh I am sure there is, but one thing that made Alien and Aliens so good and so realistic was all the practical f/x. I think all the Xenomorph sequences in those two were ‘live’? From Alien 3 the CGI Xenomorphs just never looked so good, although I understand they probably do it because it’s easier. This movie does look like it’s going to kick-ass, though. The trailer made it look like the best movie since Aliens (although I am one of the few who also genuinely liked Alien 3; Resurrection is okay in a campy way).

        • sliceanddice

          good points. as long as its somewhere between 3 and 4 in terms of quality then id be happy. hopefully no worse. i enjoy 3 a lot too actually.

        • Paul Chach Mcarthy

          Well said.

  • mixed emotions. Seems just like prometheus – people going on a new planet, another craft is there with bio weapons, etc etc. Trailer was incredible and the actual film meh. But everything from production to visuals look top notch. Seeing this with average expectations and hope to be awesome

    • Mehliens

      The craft is the one Shaw and David escaped in…

      • sliceanddice

        Most likely.

  • aFriendlyAgenda

    That Alien costume doesn’t look very good IMO

    It looks like somebody tried to sew a homemade alien suit from pieces of an old sleeping bag

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      is CGI

    • Mehliens

      What? These are by far the best looking Xenomorphs since 1979. And there will be 3-4 different versions of it in the film. I hope there will be practical effects suit of it as well in the movie though

      • PsychoMantis18

        ^THIS^

    • Cause you can do so much better 😀

    • Paul Chach Mcarthy

      Did you see the costumes for ghostubusters 2016? They were probably made at the same place as these low rent jobs.

  • Paul Chach Mcarthy

    All I can say is that you guys over at BD are easily pleased. This looks like Alien Res. And that does not bode well. The entire trailer is almost remade shots of scenes taken from the earlier films. It’s like the trailer for Terminator genesys except applied to Aliens, lol. I wouldn’t put too much faith in Ridley if I were you. He’s been on the downslide since Alien, which in my opinion, is arguably, the only good film he has ever done (Bladerunner was ok stylistically, not much else going on though in terms of story and pacing, only in my humble opinion, of course). And it was all the other people involved, Dan and Shusset, Gieger, the acting talent, who made Alien a success. Ridley just held the camera in place.

    • PsychoMantis18

      Your comment is so ridiculous I can’t tell if you’re trolling or just an idiot.

    • aFriendlyAgenda

      “All I can say is that you guys over at BD are easily pleased.”

      They’re horror fans
      A super fan of something can be more forgiving

  • aFriendlyAgenda

    Good lord!
    I just saw logan last night,
    its HORRIBLE!

    Just wall to wall awful
    The story, the script, the direction,
    everything!

    Its getting rave critical raves,
    but not for being a good movie…

    And its so bad that its fascinating, so the first thing I did is go to wikipedia to find out who are the minds behind creating this abomination?

    … guess who helped write it?

    Heres a hint:
    The same guy who is helping ridley write covenant and the bladerunner sequel

  • David Keeling

    I hate it because it’s not new like Prometheus and its got the old hokey Aliens in it , I love it cos it’s got Aliens in it. I hate it cos it’s CGI. I hate it cos it’s not Alien 5. I hate it cos it shows too much in the trailer, I hate it because it doesn’t show enough story in the trailer. I am a sordid comment trollers who moans the hell out of everything cos my life is unfulfilled and I am insecure…oh and Prometheus sucked and Ridley Scott sucks and…oh life sucks because I just had to post on here about how it’s all so rubbish and this trailer sucks. in fact sucks sucks because it sucked being sucked
