Inspires more confidence than the last trailer... I'd like to know what the shot at 1:57 is about, looks purty cool.

it's fine in terms of content

tone is pandering and clunky though

Fassbender is really a different character, which is cool

it doesn't look dumb so much as it looks like a completely unnecessary & diversionary rehash of everything we've already seen in these movies time and time again. it looks like a remake alien with some couples retreat shit thrown in. should've come out on valentines day

honestly if there's some deeply clever and interesting way of not dumping the weird prometheus stuff while doing all this other monster shit i will eat a pretty close to expired sandwich from somewhere i dont like to eat sandwiches from, on my honor as a man and boarder

but jesus christ james fucking franco. east bound and down guy is fucking annoying as fuck too. fuck these assholes

billy cruddup is a true prince of the silver screen though

i'm actually excited to see him and fassbender in something together :oops: :brokenheart:

totally agreed on all actor sentiments. I mean franco has non-offended me in certain roles but there's just no need for more than one cast member of pineapple express in basically any movie

and no way prometheus is much more than easter eggs in this movie. this movie is a departure from prometheus for the same reason donald trump is president, it's the same reason all the marvel movies are "good enough" but actually suck

Ridley Scott, who is currently on your ignore list, made this film.

Can we first talk about that shot with the huge courtyard of corpses and what looks like to be a city in the background?
Ross and FBTS's next level enthusiasm and expectations since this whole Prometheus thing fills me with warm feelings...thank you for your services. Some of your posts on the last page had some great insight into Engineer shit, but I think I gave up on expecting a sequel to Prometheus to run too far with the Lindelof stuff some time ago.

I'm resigned to the notion that the filmmakers of Alien at the time gave little thought as to what was going on beyond what was shown on screen, so whatever they did in Prometheus and this one isn't necessarily "canon" to me. If any of their new ideas are the least bit interesting, and I thought Prometheus had some, I won't be too unhappy...as long as it's a Giger-Lovecraftian slasher fuckfest, xenomorph rehashing be damned. But maybe I just have more hope that it won't depart THAT far from Prometheus as you guys think it will, I dunno.

The casting is already annoying me, so did some of those community theater actors in Prometheus.
SPOILERSPOILER_SHOW
that CGI alien trying to bash the window in with its head seems kind of silly. I thought the idea of the "backburster" sounded dumb too, but I think the idea is those spores traveled through that guy's ear canal and a "neomorph" begins to incubate around the spine. I'll take it for now.

this is hard to weigh in on since I'm on blackout (worked well for the last movie :lol: ), but...
If any of their new ideas are the least bit interesting...
I'm betting this will be the biggest issue. backlast against prometheus says that new ideas = bad, unexplained anything = bad, making people think = bad. so now we get BACKBURSTERS! which is the most

idea they could've come up with

your spoiler'd epidemiology would earn it some credence, but it's still pretty desperate

even if the movie is a re-skin of the first one, I do like some of what I've (accidentally) seen. the neomorphs (heh) seem pretty cool and true-to-Giger... but that didn't stop people from bitching about them being different. I think already posted this... should probably shut up 'til I see the movie

Yeah I watched it, nice cut

Really hope they didn't listen to people's bitching as much as you guys fear they did

‘Alien: Covenant’ Will Get Back to the ‘Alien’ Roots You Wanted to See in ‘Prometheus’

no surprises here...
He did listen to the criticism, if you like, of [Prometheus] and people wanted more aliens. The other thing as well is that certain studios want to make a certain movie, and sometimes your hands are tied for horror. If you’re making it for a PG-13 or 15, your hands are tied to give proper horrors. But when the gloves are off and it’s 18 or R-rated, then you can make the movie exactly what you want — with more aliens. He listened to the audience, that they want more aliens — they’re gonna get a lot more aliens. More than they probably anticipated.
how many minutes of screen-time did the creatures get in Alien?

OK wait this is surprising:
It shouldn’t have really ended, so we’ve come back with a very simple idea. Who made them? No one ever asked that question. [Alien] was just about there it is; it exists. And this is what it is. Seven guys and gals in a steel hull. Frankly, the very old idea of The Old Dark House. Who’s gonna die next? The fundamental basis of Alien was a pretty old B-movie, but because of the cast and talent involved it came out an A+ movie. So we’ve reinvented the idea of Alien, I think, which is that Covenant gets us a step closer to who and why was this thing designed to make human beings. And if you think it’s them [the Engineers], you’re dead wrong.
huh? make human beings?

I think scott's idea of press engagement is just to make up a bunch of stuff and blatantly lie so that people are intrigued
