About Alien: Covenant 2 / Alien Awakening

The state of the Alien: Covenant sequel continues to remain uncertain. Ridley Scott has mentioned previously that they have a story already in place and know exactly where the sequel to Covenant will go, however the recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox film properties by Disney have potentially put the rumored-to-be-titled Alien: Awakening on hold for the time being. As new details arise concerning Alien: Covenant 2 we will be your premiere source and you can find information on the Covenant sequel by visiting the About Alien: Awakening page here.

Good to see, those practical effects are amazing!

I don't have an IMAX cinema anywhere near me, so the Morphs and lab specimens were very hard to make out in any detail. 

Wish Daniels and co had looked around the lab more, so little screen time for such a beautifully detailed set! :(

The practical effects look great, but in the final product they seemed to have a thick layer of CGI over them which was disappointing, especially the CGI-looking slime from the alien. All of the practical sets were very impressive indeed! I'm glad Ridley still appreciates in-camera special effects and sets.

I'm impressed by these pictures, not by what I saw in the movie... Really. I feel sad.

Yeah Lone those dark sets were so tough to make out. That whole Necropolis was just so damn dark it's just a travesty. Seems what Ridley sees as average I'd say those sets were beyond amaze balls awesome. Looks like the illustrated book is they only way we are gonna get some detail on this stuff. That neomorrph suit on a dark night walking around a corner, wow, you talk about freaked out
