New Alien: Covenant image directly references LV-426!

New Alien: Covenant image directly references LV-426!

The Puerto Rican 20th Century Fox Instagram account recently shared a new promotional image for Alien: Covenant. Interestingly enough, the image is of LV-426, the moon both Alien and its sequel Aliens took place on. The rough translation through Instagram reads "It's not just a calm moon, Alien: Covenant in theaters May 11th". This immediately follows a short IMAX featurette which we reported on yesterday, which also featured original footage of LV-426 from the previous Alien films.

This can't be coincidence. Why are Fox making such obvious reference to LV-426 when the planet Alien: Covenant takes place on is not LV-426? Could they be trying to throw us off to hide more sensitive plot details from leaking? Only recently have Fox begun sliding images and references to LV-426 into Alien: Covenant's marketing, which leads me to believe there is a definite reason for it and it's not merely a coincidence.

Here's my theory. Either a few surviving Engineers recapture the Derelict after David perfects the Xenomorph and take it off planet it to save their home, or the planet becomes LV-426? Or something I missed. Whatever the case, I'm excited.

David 7Apr-08-2017 10:41 AM


Is this Shaws fate? She takes the ship? And makes off with the Alien eggs after David has successfully perfected the Alien. His cargo was destined for Earth? She herself becomes hosted? Thus, the hole in the chest of the jokey suit. 

AtiApr-08-2017 11:18 AM


David007, it was my theory on this site last year, but nobody liked it. :D

David 7Apr-08-2017 11:20 AM


Well, you might be right. Judging from the latest tv trailer with Shaw in the hologram...she is familiar with the ship...because David taught her how to use at the end of Prometheus. 

AtiApr-08-2017 11:40 AM


And the big-ass-big-head-big-hand mystery creature in the second trailer can be Shaw as well. And anybody... :D

LoneApr-08-2017 11:45 AM


Ati we see Shaw...everywhere...:D

AtiApr-08-2017 11:55 AM


...zzz, I jumped back for the answer, yes, Lone, I know there are people who do not like her, but there is a huge number of people who would like to see her in more movies. It's very interesing in my op, I'm not a Shaw fan but I feel that the character should be used in future Alien films. I mentioned it previously somewhere that Scott should take this contradiction into account - people want Shaw.

David.9Apr-08-2017 1:10 PM


There was a civil war in Paradise. Shaw took the side of liberal engineer, on the other way around, David became a part of conservatives. Conservative engineers wanted to bomb the earth with black goo. They recreated Xenomorph on Derelict. Shaw and an engineer stole the ship and tried to drop it somewhere. Then they found LV-426 but the engineer unluckily got face-hugged and died in a pilot chair. Shaw sent the signal to warn Nostromo not to fuck with this planet.  

+ I'm rooting for Shaw. She's not a typical character who just wants to survive the crisis. She went deep for the answer and i hope she would find it. 

Roger55Apr-08-2017 1:53 PM


I can't find any exactly reference in the Alien universe timeline to this, after Prometheus or before AC?

David 7Apr-08-2017 2:42 PM


My theory..though someone may have had the same theory is that the Planet from Prometheus is still key. Has David expended all the black goo from the ship he and Shaw commandeered when they departed the planet?  Would he need more to conduct his business of planet extermination? He would then need go back to the source of the weaponry. I am sure that the concordances are in the ship and would route them back. I believe that Shaw has some part in play as She is familiar with the ships operation. She is bent on not wanting Earth destroyed and in some act, takes the ship of its dangerous cargo and crashes it. Thus, creating a beacon to keep people away. However, I believe we will not see the derelict and what transpires until the next film, though we might see some footage at the end of Covenant that leads into the next film where LV-426 plays a very important role.

It's just more promotional stuff.

This is hashtagged AlienCovenant as well...


Are the Nostromo and her crew in Covenant too?

AtiApr-08-2017 3:36 PM


Scott made Alien and jumped back 30 years in the story in 2012 and made Prometheus. Now we have A:C and I think it is possible that he will jump back in time again in his next movie - as it was in the news some weeks ago (Alien:Awakening - if that is a movie).

It's a kind of pattern, a kind of game in my opinion. Perhaps this process is highlighted/revealed/supported by the usage of the expression 'emohemekat' - 'take me home' written backwards.

red herring


ChrisApr-09-2017 10:48 PM


@S.M, perfectly reasonable to assume but why add video footage of Alien/Aliens to the Alien: Covenant IMAX featurette as well? Why not use Covenant footage only? They didn't do this with Prometheus. Makes ya wonder a bit. 

S.MApr-09-2017 10:59 PM


Was there ALiens footage in it?


BigDaveApr-10-2017 6:37 AM


Well this image is taken from the Nostromo as you can make out in the image and so it could be a bit of a Red Herring if people read to much into it.

@ATI we can only hope indeed we are going further back into the Franchise with each movie, and so Awakening covers the events prior to Covenant but Post Prometheus but if this is the case then the Awakening in Relation to the Franchise would seem to hint that the events Post Prometheus and Prior to Alien Covenant are connected very much to the Alien Xenomorph.

I would hope we eventually see the Derelict as being a Ancient Event but who knows now... i wonder if its left open ended so we have to Guess which way it will go.

But as Ridley has the name for the next movie, and you can be sure as far as the Plot they all-ready have this completed.

HierosApr-11-2017 10:40 AM


What puzzles me is how does the original space jockey from Alien get back to LV-426?

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

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.
