Alien: Covenant IMAX Featurette Released!

Alien: Covenant IMAX Featurette Released!

Alien: Covenant is meant to be viewed in IMAX this May, just listen to Ridley Scott! A new featurette promoting the IMAX theater experience for Alien: Covenant has been released. Although no new footage is shown, there is some new, creepy audio and we also get the infamous return of that iconic "Alien siren" sound from the 1979 original trailer and Prometheus' trailers! The video also ends with a green overlay of the original Derelict spacecraft from Alien, on LV-426. Was it deliberate? Does it have any bearing on the plot of Alien: Covenant? We're not sure. Check it out below:

I have to drive 1 hour to get to the closest IMAX theater :(

So should I view this IMAX? I live next to a Regal Cinemas 16 screen with a IMAX, is that a good screen or nah? would it be bad to view in regular 2d? I don't know that much about the difference, if I were to view it in regular would they have to cut off the sides in order to view it in that sized theater? Thanks

I LOVE the style of this trailer, it's Truly 'ALIEN' in feel and the 'siren' sound!!

I cannot wait. IMAX makes everything better. Now if only we can get IMAX 3D

@Blackwinter-witch, right?! I've been waiting for them to use that since the first trailer! Hahaha

And yes to the rest asking, IMAX I've found is way more immersive. Louder, bigger, all around better. I really enjoy loud films though so if you're sensitive to that or don't like your seat to shake then I'd probably say avoid it hahaha but for the most part IMAX is a winner for seeing films.

@ Chris

 

You've convince me see IMAX for the first time!

I have just one concern I hope you might have the answer to; I read online that watching IMAX films such as Christopher Nolan's INtersteller and The Dark Knight constantly had the film size change in many scenes from the IMAX widescreen, to the standard 35mm screen which I hear was really annoying. Will A:C do this at all? Thanks a ton!

I've been MISSING the iconic 'siren' in the trailers...it just....I dunno...makes the trailers more 'real', y'know?

In this featurette you can now clearly see David together with the other guy in the egg room getting facehugged.

This scene was already known and described by people that saw that scene at a private trailer/clip screening or as they were visting the set...cant remember what it was.

The shots of the Derelict at the end...pretty sure that was just some footage from ALIEN thrown in at the end, for flavour, look at the rock formations and other details, and pretty sure it was taken from the part where Dallas, Kane and Lambert have seen it and are making their way towards it.

Still, a nice touch :)

No IMAX cinemas anywhere near me...as yet :(

Getting goosebumps hearing Ridley talk about A:C!!

Yes, the Derelict image is taken from when Ash views it on his monitor, with the picture breaking up..."Shit...I'm going back to the console"

B-W I'll take A:C in any format, just glad I'm around for it! :)

Same here, I'll be just fine with a normal theatre, or even catching it at home, just so long as I get to see it! :)

I think there is a few IMAX near me but the Prices compared to my usual place i go to watch movies (My local Odeon) are massive I watched Star Wars Rogue One in 3D and it cost me £7.25 included Glasses, and the nearest IMAX with 3D would have been double that cost.

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. 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.
