(MAJOR SPOILERS) Some behind the scene shots of some props and David's lab4 Upvotes38 RepliesUpvoteAdd A Reply
There does seem to be a lot of .... crap.... around her head and bones going into her face. I wonder if she had some kind of facehugger on her (accidentally or deliberately) and David tried to cut it off either out of desperation or experimentation.
Qubism Chris has put out quite a bit of info as possible at this time about this- which seems deliberately little. I agree that it is a great mystery to those of us whom haven't seen the movie yet.
@Tiwaz, that sketch of Shaw with the strange abnormalities coming out of her jaw is one of many David created. It gave me the impression David tried a lot of various things on Shaw or attempted to conceive ways of mutilation her corpse in the most efficient way.
There's no mistaking it, the plastinated woman is Shaw. She was ripped apart and it also looked like her organs had been harvested. David is a sick, twisted robot. I think he used her eggs as a missing link between the pathogen spore born creatures and the Ovomorph / Xenomorph. Using her eggs he was able to incubate and mutate the Facehugger to self sustain themselves and grow to produce the Ovomorph (Egg).
Chris Sorry if you cannot answer, but were you given a dvd to watch for the in depth review? Not saying it is impossible, but one shot at a movie in a dark theater and remembering it all with travel etc seems a tall order.
When that is Shaw, so be it. I don't mind her being a dead "queen" and ending up on frankenstein's gyno-table.
I just looked at the two pics (drawing and set photo) and thought "Eh?". The rest I stated already.
All i'd like to see in A:C (and following) is consistency story wise in regards to, at least, the other movies. But I suspect, after all I've read, it might not go that way.
Ps.: No offense meant and none taken, just in case. ;)
Eine Theorie die nicht auf Etwas solidem basiert ist für gewöhnlich nur Geschwätz.
ObscureMammal, yes the urns are different sizes and I'm sure different in capability as well.
So i was right all along, David creates the Alien, was pretty obvious from writers perspective and looking at history, it always repeats itself. A robot is built on many repetitive traits, like we humans. One i love most, is that we always try to over come our parents or creators, to become a grown up for ourselves. It either works out well with the upbringing and they are strong enough and clever enough, to deal with life correctly or if that is not the case, it is most likely going to end with someone who cannot deal with what life has to offer. Especially in terms or moral, good nature and to have borders what you can and cannot do. Clearly David is Pinnocchio in so many ways but with messed up parentage and role models. Even after seeing the Engineers and understanding their culture, they were not any different than we were. Perhaps even worse, so is it really so shocking how he reacts? He already mentioned, you must destroy to create and big things have small beginnings. Always being drawn to extremes. It´s a weird combination what Fox has pitched us, how would a human react to this environment, upbringing? and if a race or creation exceeds our knowledge and wisdom, it will ultimately want to establish itself as the new leading species, put themselves on top of the food rank.
We have a messed up history or wars and dictatorships, experiments and horrible things, where else should David have learned to do the same. He is the ultimate Hitler and with all good villains, he thinks he is just and right with his actions and does not see himself as bad, if he even thinks in that manner.
The reason why Prometheus and now Covenant strike a strong cord with me, is exactly these Topics and many more you can take out of it as long as you know a lot :-)
