A question about the Covenant landing site6,272 Views8 RepliesAdd A Reply
Look at the place where the Covenant Lander has landed. People were almost waist-deep in water. How could you explain it?
Also the water level is constantly changing (maybe because of tides).
Simple, Tennessee was adjusting his hat and wan't looking where he landed.
Then the crew cussed him out for getting them all wet ;)
Obsession is a Power, not a Curse ;)
Yep, there are tides.
When the crew first landed the area was covered in water. When they later returned the tide lowered down.The trailers didn't exactly show these scenes in order.
Different filming days in New Zealand? That place is gorgeous, btw...(Milford Sound, NZ) I want tickets to there!
@Movie fan nice version about Tennessee. :)
@Dark Nebula Why not to choose a constantly dry place to land? It seems there are many dry flat places on Planet 4 (for example, fields and other areas of shores)
Looks like the set was built on dry land and when they started shooting the tide has risen and Ridley was like "Well nevermind, we won't drown".
My assumption, nothing official.
I heard there were environmental restrictions there. If they moved more inland, they may have had to clear/level some land and that may have been a no no. I heard a similar story about the explosion regarding debris and water pollution etc...
Sources were from members on various threads.
Water = Life so a completely dry area is boring to anyone looking for signs of life (or looking for a distress signal from some kind of life....)
