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 pretty sure that the planet at the beginning of the movie is a primordial earth. Also when they mentioned a fertile world, I was concerned that's it would be light colors and sunshine. I'm glad I was wrong lol
@123Engineer The black dna, the landscapes! Just have a feeling it could be the same planet at the beginning of Promethues. @DavidNebula great images also good point on younger Peter Weyland. Damon Lindelof left a lot of questions lol.
I hope the story has also elements of religion and philosophy, like Promtheus had. I have the fear that the storyline comes too short. I mean, another hunt through corridors and exploding spaceships-thing ...really? I hope the crew discover the truth behind all of it. Alien and Prometheus just showed us a tiny bit of the whole thing that is going on with the engineers. Whats all behind it? Who created them? Why did they want to destroy us at the end of Prometheus? Where is Shaw? I hope that under the earth of that planet, there is a huge engineer facility. Not military. A place where the engineers live, work and plan... the homeplanet...
I am very curious about this planet. The way the derelict is setting is very similar to that of the one in Alien. To add, it is sending off a distress call just as the one in Alien. Or it is just coincidence.
Good catch on it being "primordial earth". I thought 0:56- 0:57 looked like a shot pulled from Prometheus. I still have a hard time believing this planet is LV-426. That place was a waste land and if this is primordial earth then it's been in its present state for thousands of years. Hard to believe it would become a waste land in 20 some odd years. I really hope they delve deeper into why and who the engineers are.
My theory for James Franco, who is the husband of Waterson in the film is that he is not on the ship but home on earth or another location. She communicates via video transmissions to him as she is away on this mission. Perhaps they have a daughter already. Just my two cents and would explain why Franco has a small role.
I'm thinking that this planet is obviously the one David and Shaw landed or crashed the Engineer ship on, and it was once, maybe long long ago, a grand home planet for the Engineer race, during their "roman empire" phase of existence, but has since fallen into a biohazardous wasteland, full of the living viruses (spores, black goo) that was unleashed at some point by their own Engineer scientists/military/terrorists.
I think David took Shaw there per her request, her not realizing the terrible danger zone it currently has become, probably all the Engineers extinct by now. I assume she either died or became a test subject for David, who has become quite comfortable on this planet, performing his Dr. Moreau type of experiments with the black goo/spores over the course of a decade alone.
Now though, years of testing later, he finally has a new group of test subjects to experiment on, thanks to a distress signal he set up from the Engineer ship. The colonists aboard the covenant, wherever they were intended to go originally, heard the signal from this planet, same as how the Nostromo heard a signal from LV-426, and went to investigate. (Possibly on purpose, the same way the Nostromo was "meant" to go to LV-426 all along through Weyland-Yutani's Special order) They were not prepared for the result, as a monstrous variety of parasitoid alien creatures are all out to kill them, helped along by David, I feel like he likes seeing human beings suffer.
I would personally love to see some resolution to the questions I have about the Engineers, but I think they will probably leave their history vague, since the outcry after Prometheus was all "where's the Xenos/aliens?!"
i am personally more interested in the Engineers than the xenos/photos/neos whatevermorphs, but still beyond excited to see this movie!
The Planet has to be called Paradise, the movie was called Alien Paradise Lost before Covenant. I can't see it being called LV-426, Shaw had **** time in Prometheus. Her DNA could be mutated and David using her to make eggs.
I have to be real here, the ship on LV-426 was transmitting that message before prometheus left. Weyland Corp had already deciphered it. David was going to send prometheus there if Shaw missed with LV-223.
Interesting tidbit. What if all the juggernauts send the same message automatically when their xeno cargoes are compromised? No one needs to send it.
I don't think the planet they arrive on is LV-426...I think it's possible that towards the end of the movie a lone Engineer will take off in that ship with it eventually crash landing on LV-426...I think a facehugger will attack the piloting Engineer which forces the ship's descent to the planet.
I was surfing the net and came across this! very Interesting..........
"They're colonists. They're scientists," Waterston explained after Fox screened a clip. "Obviously Amy Seimetz's (character) is a pilot. They're not military experts or anything, so they are all civilians."
She added, "There are some military dudes around to protect us, but most of the -- I don't know if I'm supposed to say this, but I'm gonna say it anyway -- most of the people on the ship are couples, and then there are all of these colonists who are in a cryosleep."
"You always wonder, what kind of person you would be in an extreme crisis," she continued. "Will you be a coward, or will you be courageous? And I think [Daniels is] just one of those people, who, if her kids were in a car that was on fire, she'd be able to lift up the car."
