20th Century Fox have just released a third, new Alien: Covenant movie still! This time, the image seems to be of an Engineer Temple interior - the halls look very similar to those of the installation on LV-223, however they seem more "warped" in a sense.
Also accompanying the image is another numeric clue: 185612082104
What could this number mean? Sound off in the comments!

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.

I'm with you on that Spaniard! 12th May the Marines land on LV223 to find out what happened to Prometheus - James Franco is their captain..? 12th June is the Crew in cryo stasis in the Covenant. 12th August is discovery of what David has created?!
It does indeed look like the inside of the Derelict. However it seems a lot cleaner looking than the Derelict. Could be part of the ship that wasn't gashed open, but I still think it's a different ship or part of the Engineer Temples, since the Derelict would have already been crashed on LV-426 many years prior to the Covenant event. That is of course, assuming the atmosphere of LV-426 doesn't age things more rapidly than on Earth...
Remember too that current production values will be exerted no matter what. Only a very small segment of the audience would applaud an outright reprise of the scruffier 1979 aesthetic. This is Giger's biotech realized in a new age.
The similarities between it and the original are startling, and if it weren't for the soil on the floor I'd say with confidence that it was a Juggernaut interior. It may still be. It's a surprise to see this sort of thing, I had the impression that look was off the table. What a pleasant surprise indeed.
Dark Nebula I agree it does look like the derelict interior corridors.
Chris yeah it doesn't really hold up, at first the derelict was supposed be very old according to Ridley (I think it was) but then he has stated that Covenant takes place right before Alien. And wasn't the pre-trilogy idea scrapped when Lindelof left the 3-film project he initially signed up on?
Can anyone explain the practicality of the interior of the derelict hallway pictured above? In other words, what's the function of the seemingly ribbed walls? (Please don't say that the walls are ribbed for the Aliens' pleasure! haha) Do you think the Aliens use the design for pulling themselves along the walls? The curved halls create a constant opportunity for danger lurking around the bend.
It's been suggested, including by Giger, that the Derelict was grown rather than built. I definitely subscribe to this idea, for several reasons, one being that with that explanation the textures shapes within could result from the utility of the growing process. And also because it's just so creepy.
It's definitely creepy. In fact, it's so different that it makes a great defense mechanism. When a human sees that, we don't know what it is and what could by hidden in the crevices. If it were a long, flat, straight corridor, the Aliens couldn't hide as easily.
This image makes me consider the possibility that the original alien derelict was sent from the Engineer home world (paradise) to LV223 in order to take out a rogue sect of engineer, but wound up crashing into Acheron instead. In other words it was part of an attack fleet, and it is that fleet that caused the xenomorph disaster inside the complex seen in Prometheus. This image could come from some flashback, or recording from the time period on paradise.
Scott says it would require 2 or even 3 more films to get back to Alien. Personally I don't see what the could accomplish, other than showing how the derelict arrived. Tying to Ripley through parents or something in this timeline would actually be pretty lame.
Aorta, yep certainly makes sense when put into context of a) that the organic xeno eggs couldve've been grown in Ridley's/Giger's version, and b) that Giger was really into organic/fleshy art as part of his trademark "biomechanoid" style, combining vehicle engines with organs.
He actually did a painting called "penis landscape"
Must be of the ship Shaw and David used. I can't believe they would take us to the end/beginning with this one. Perhaps David visits the ship every so often... also the militaristic nature of some of these images really came out of left field for me.
It's probably the ship David and Shaw used to leave the planet from Prometheus and the new crew from the Covenant found it like you guys are saying. Im assuming most of the stuff we've seen so far comes from the first act of the film, including the shot of Waterson with her gun up.
has anyone else noticed that the Twitter and Facebook versions of this picture are slightly different? in the Facebook version, there seems to be a rope or a cable running across the hallway and possibly into the doorway on the right, whereas this rope or cable is gone in the Twitter version. the difference is best visible by going back and forth between the two pictures in an image viewer.
doing the same thing, i also noticed that the Twitter version of the photo of the bloody lab is significantly darker than the Facebook version. not sure there's any relevance to this, but the missing/appearing cable or rope seems interesting to me.
