20th Century Fox have just debuted a sneak peek for a new Alien: Covenant featurette coming March 10th, announcing the Weyland-Yutani WALTER model (portrayed again by Michael Fassbender)! Apparently, Walter is powered by AMD, so we're hoping he also comes with a proper cooling unit (lol). Check out the new featurette below and be sure to check back on March 10th for when the full featurette is online!

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.

Treat yourself to some Alien Merchandise!

As we await the next Alien movie, now is a great time to build your Alien collection and expand your Alien-themed wardrobe. Check out some products below and click here for even more options!

"How dangerous, is the acquirement of knowledge?" has me thinking about David...

David 7

FacehuggerMember488 XPMar-08-2017 11:48 AM

Oh...sweet. The viral marketing is starting.

FacehuggerMember249 XPMar-08-2017 12:10 PM

what is he saying?

kind of whispery and mumbling for a synthetic right?


ChestbursterMember739 XPMar-08-2017 12:56 PM

Americans and/or British people! What kind of accent does Fassbender use here? English is not my first language so I can't tell all the differences like you can (I know he's from Ireland but I'm not sure about this accent) 

David 7

FacehuggerMember488 XPMar-08-2017 1:11 PM

He is quoting from Mary Shelly's Frankenstein.


NeomorphMember1984 XPMar-08-2017 1:27 PM

I'm stoked!


NeomorphMember1984 XPMar-08-2017 1:36 PM

Learn from me, if not by my precepts, at least by my example, how dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge and how much happier that man is who believes his native town to be the world, than he who aspires to become greater than his nature will allow...

-Mary Shelley (FRANKENSTEIN)

FacehuggerMember249 XPMar-08-2017 1:58 PM

Interestingly Mary Shelleys Frankenstein carries the name

'the modern Prometheus' in the literary world


OvomorphMember23 XPMar-08-2017 2:23 PM

sounds like a synth canadian accent actually.


OvomorphMember11 XPMar-08-2017 2:52 PM

All I hear is this: "Learn from me how dangerous the acquirement of knowledge is." 

Reminds me of Prometheus and how "David" used the black substance in order to infect Holloway to satisfy his curiosity and gather information.

FacehuggerMember281 XPMar-08-2017 4:19 PM

Everyone talks of David and the black may be Walter who gets the black goo, just a feeling


DeaconMember10416 XPMar-08-2017 4:35 PM

Certainly fits in with the theme of Forbidden Knowledge and Free-will....

I am not sure i like Fassbenders Walter Accent.. i think he will be annoying lol 

Oh well at least we have David ;)


OvomorphMember23 XPMar-08-2017 8:23 PM

Yeah Walter is the amoral one, does he sound more like Ash or Bishop than David?



OvomorphMember41 XPMar-08-2017 10:31 PM

@At BigDave,

LOL, I hear what you are saying. We have paid homage at the altar of Alien a few too many times.

BigDave I try my best not to not to commit the crime which is to criticize; however, I was willing to get past the CGI aliens. Psssst BigDave, looking both ways, or maybe breaking the fourth wall, with the looks from the cast from prologue: Last Supper! That exclamation is just for me, looks jussssst a bit like theater. However I digress.

The trailers are interesting. Did they really put a giant analogy camera on Daniels backpack. Is she the go pro-film-what the &^%#$!@!##$@@@!!!@@@!!!!! OOOOO BOYYYYYYYYYY *&^*%&^$^&%%$#$@$#@%$#%$^%$^%^&%&^ almost got it &%&%$$#$#@%$^%%$#@@%^&, for real BigDave? So in Prometheus we are to believe that David is using a neuronal linked machine that can distinguish individual synaptic reactions and transmit the data into a semi fuzzy hologram. Very interesting. So why does Daniels have a big untimely unconventional maybe digital camera. Are they programming us for vintage? I guess all the special effects people for drone work were working on another film. Oh well. Ahhh but I digress.

How have you been BigDave?  I do not have too much time to stop by and read all the posts. Honestly I cannot wait to see the film. I like the back busting scene too much not to go into this with at least an open mind.  

BigDave you call them as you see them what are your predictions for this film?

Going off the new trailer with the giant black grass hoppers jumping from wall to wall, I think Ridley is going in the James Cameron route. So, it wouldn't surprise me if Walter turns out to be the new "good guy" model ala Bishop.


PraetorianMember2674 XPMar-09-2017 5:29 AM

 Hmm he sounds kinda a robotic, measured way.


OvomorphMember12 XPMar-09-2017 6:00 AM

@Necronom 4


Ridley wanted a wall jumping Alien in the 79 movie but they didn't have the budget or means to do it so Cameron made it happen. 


I'm guessing Ridley wants his crack at it now lol 


FacehuggerMember247 XPMar-09-2017 6:04 AM

There's a new Walter video on Twitter:

NeomorphMember1566 XPMar-09-2017 11:11 AM

@ Harper;

Yes, I'm very aware that Ridley wanted the alien to move more like the aliens in Cameron's instalment. But thankfully, due to budget constraints, it didn't happen. I love the way the alien moves in the original; I love its elegance. I love the way it toys with the crew with a seemingly twisted agenda.

In the sequels it became a different beast all together in my opinion. It became more animalistic and less elegant.    


DeaconMember10416 XPMar-09-2017 2:55 PM

Indeed Blueant

Walter just seems a bit too Monotone and seems to be coming across like talking to a Sat Nav System Voice, which would not be bad if accent was better.

Reminds me of this KITT Sat Nav and this Stephen Hawkings with a hint of Irish lol


DeaconMember10416 XPMar-09-2017 2:56 PM

As far as whats going on.... thats gonna be a big post lol

I have One or Two Ideas....
