Alien: Covenant finally debuted in Japan and the box office numbers for its opening weekend are officially in. Unfortunately Covenant did not pull ahead with a very strong take, earning itself only $2.6 million. Compared to Ridley Scott's previous Alien prequel, Prometheus earned $3.8 million when it debuted in Japan.
It's no surprise that Covenant struggled at the box office, both domestically and internationally. The good news however is that Covenant Blu-ray and DvD sales are staying strong - most likely because fans were eager to check out the film's deleted and extended scenes.
