Daniels cautious of nearby Aliens in latest Alien: Covenant movie still!

A new Alien: Covenant movie still was just released by Entertainment Weekly and features a new look at a terrified, yet tough Daniels (Katherine Waterston). Emulating Ellen Ripley's flamethrower-weilding aesthetic, Daniels is seen holding a Weyland-Yutani security rifle, advancing through plastic curtains. The look on her face is one of both concern and focus as she seemingly investigates the aftermath of an Alien massacre/birth or advances through the interior of the ship - looking for the beast(s).

What do you think is going on in this scene? Sound off in the comments section!

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Good grief, there have been more news drops today then there have been in the past month and a half combined.

I love the look on her face.

And its the same room as in this photo I think.

I just wonder what happens next.


FacehuggerMember159 XPDec-20-2016 12:39 PM

Maybe Ridley played a little trick on her (like he does occasionally to get a "natural" reaction from an actor).  The two of them smiling could be just after he played the trick. :-)

Groovy! This is the marketing week for sure. Keep an eye out for the update of the Weyland Yutani site as the viral marketing should begin as well.


FacehuggerMember159 XPDec-20-2016 12:47 PM

I go on the Weyland Industries site (from 'Prometheus' marketing campaign) multiple times a day, but nothing so far.  I wonder if they will even use it to help market 'Alien: Covenant'.

FacehuggerMember488 XPDec-20-2016 12:54 PM

I think they will. They have mentioned that Franco shot some videos for the viral marketing. I would imagine in a month, or weeks they might update that site. They still have it which says a lot but we shall see.

Something Real

TrilobiteMember5639 XPDec-20-2016 12:54 PM

Hmm...I have a feeling she is seeing eggs - or bodies...


ChestbursterMember736 XPDec-20-2016 1:00 PM

Ridley really likes his strong female heroes doesn't he?

Wouldn't be surprised if Daniels ends up as the sole survivor.......again 

That being said she does look smoking hot in that picture XD and I'm sure she won't say cringeworthy lines like "because I choose to believe", "I love rocks!!!" or "father"


FacehuggerMember357 XPDec-20-2016 1:02 PM

Whatever it is that she seems to have come across, it was'nt with the aid of a movement sensor by the looks of it.


ChestbursterMember736 XPDec-20-2016 1:10 PM

I'm guessing the picture is from later in the film where all or most crewmembers have been killed by one or several morphs, and she alone or with the remaining survivors are living up to the teaser poster's tagline RUN

Guess I'm gonna need new pants after this film.

Looks like this will actually come in handy when watching this movie.


ChestbursterMember736 XPDec-20-2016 1:32 PM

Perfect, now all I need is a macho alpha-male voice changer to suppress my girly screaming when watching AC, and I'm all set.

Hey Mrs Bass would be cheap to hire and who said you cant have Female Sacrificial Engineers

Guys, lets not forget alien 5, remember how the betty landed on earth at the end of resurrection? Who knows what else was on that ship when they landed, i really hope SW will lead im alien 5 #alien5


ChestbursterMember736 XPDec-20-2016 1:59 PM

Haha Dave that looks like a female Dolph Lundgren! 

But my point is that we've seen this "only surviving female warrior" code twice already.

Ripley, sole survivor of the Nostromo

Shaw, sole..ok not really but sole human survivor of the Prometheus expedition.

Will Daniels also be the sole survivor of AC? I hope not because it would be a little ridiculous but not necessarily bad for the film itself.


DeaconMember10325 XPDec-20-2016 2:16 PM

Fully Agree Neomorph, but i think its likely she would now play the female lead for the next few movies and essentially be our new Franchise Ripley...  But they dont have to be related like Star Wars and how Prequels where Anakins Story and Original Trilogy his off springs... i hope we dont get this being the same but Ridley did mention Star Wars as a Franchise as far as how potentially they could do with Alien.

So if Alien Franchise was Ripleys Story, i would not be surprised if they make Alien Prequels her daughters... because they may think it makes money.

FacehuggerMember444 XPDec-20-2016 3:54 PM

You mean her mother's? Since it come before the originals lol

FacehuggerMember488 XPDec-20-2016 4:14 PM

I got word from a friend who works with the theaters and according to her the AC trailer is attached with Assains Creed or so she says. 


DeaconMember10325 XPDec-20-2016 5:35 PM

LOL.....  Yeah sorry thats what i meant ALIEN 426

Actually my Prometheus 2 draft that i canceled work on had Ripley connection in it..

Nut Shell Mrs Weaver would appear in a cameo with Shaw, and another female in Flash Back... of her alive while Shaw is at her Funeral... not Ripley though... its a relative, Ripleys Great Granmother to be exact lol and the Person who took care of Shaw once her Mother and Father Died... 

The other girl a cousin of Shaw who (also thinking Auntie) who is Pregnant.... and She tells Shaw at the Funeral she knows the name of her Daughter to be... i am going to name her Ellen after Grandma....  there 2nd name is not Ripley..

Thats Shaws Cousins (or young auntie) soon to be husband's surname  Corporal Ripley  (Marine) who are due to Marry when he gets back.

This was a set of flash backs to tease, the importance of death and birth of new life, within Shaws Beliefs.. where in this memory she is shown saying she will meet her Grandmother again in the other life.

So we have them at Funeral, and as they talk about their Grandmother who is in the Coffin, they have flash back memory where Shaws Grandmother (Ripleys Great Grandmother) is in a kitchen and giving Shaw some Juice and Sandwiches lol.

Just a little cameo nod...


OvomorphMember44 XPDec-20-2016 8:52 PM

Which one survive at the end of AC,Shaw or Daniel?


OvomorphMember42 XPDec-20-2016 10:10 PM

Long time lurker...So excited for this, I feel like there's going to be a little bit of something for everyone. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all your theories so thanks!

Welcome to the site!


OvomorphMember3 XPDec-21-2016 11:17 PM

Does anyone here really believe the whole "Ripley" spoiler? This image of course dredges that early rumor up once more. Somehow I can't believe Scott's connection would be so dramatic between the films - there really isn't a reason to have any lineage present.
