Alien: Covenant - Prometheus sequel by Ridley Scott

Alien: Covenant


Katherine Waterston had a lot of fun doing her own stunts in Alien: Covenant

Katherine Waterston had a lot of fun doing her own stunts in Alien: Covenant

In a fresh interview with FOX News, Katherine Waterston, who plays the lead female character (Daniels) in Alien: Covenant, discussed how Ridley Scott's original Alien traumatized her for life after seeing it at a young age (which most of us can relate to), as well as discussing her work on Covenant, specifically with regards to her own stunt work.

During the interview, which you can watch below, Waterston explains that doing the action scenes in Alien: Covenant was a "pure joy", but also physically demanding. She mentions that Ridley Scott essentially had to "pull her off of the wires" because she would get so into her role and push herself to limits she didn't know she was capable of.

Given the above, it's safe to assume that Waterston will be bringing some serious heat to Alien: Covenant, much like Sigourney Weaver did in Aliens.

Waterston also reiterates that the USCSS COVENANT is a colonizing vessel, full of couples, en-route to a new planet to populate, with no intention of returning to Earth. Check out the full interview below:

So it's a colonizing vessel, not a "search party" (for Shaw and David)!

Indeed put i think the interesting question would be how they ended up at the same place that David is at.. and how they are going to answer that.

It will be interesting to see how Waterston comes off on screen, as it seems she has made a lot of effort fitting into this role.

Looking at the News today released on here... i think that Deep Space is where the TWO AC Novels will cover....

So at  least we get answers, but then we wont get to see visually on screen those questions... i hope what ever is covered they at least provide a Pull Out of some Art Work.

"colony ship carrying couples" hmmm... How I see it now, Engineers identify this planet for potential seeding(like the beginning of Prometheus, some form of civil war breaks out but they are smart enough not to use weapons of mass destruction on their planet, so they agree to have the war on this new planet, planet gets infected with black goo, Covenant is flying by and sees the planet is Habitable, then all hell breaks loose... Not too sure how the eggs arrive though, does David use Shaw as an incubator for a xeno queen??? Were the eggs left behind from the war???

Stan Winston (deceased)Jan-13-2017 12:09 AM


Perhaps it's the eggs that are indigenous to the planet? And originally, idk, contained cutesy bunny rabbits, but David smeared some eggs with the evil black goo, and just like a mogwai turns into a gremlin, the cutesy bunny rabbit turns into a dormant facehugger. You get the picture.

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.
