Whether you liked Alien: Covenant or not, critics and fans alike can agree that like Prometheus, Covenant was a visual spectacle and an incredible cinematic viewing experience. Like Prometheus as well, the visual effects for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant were handled with extreme care by the folks at MPC. This post is somewhat of a throwback, as it details some of MPC's magnificent work on the Alien prequel sequel.
Below are visual effects breakdown videos produced by MPC. Some of you may have already seen them but many reading this post likely haven't. What's most fascinating about these specific VFX videos is that they offer a fantastic look at the destructive capabilities the Black Goo pathogen possessed when it was unleashed by David on the Engineer society on Paradise.
Regardless of where Disney takes the next Alien film - we hope the story arc concerning David and his Black Goo experiments continues to evolve! What about you? Should we see more Alien genetic mayhem in the next Alien film? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
