So after seeing Alien: Covenant on May 18th we had a question that we as an audience has had since May 25th 1979: How Xenomorphs see. Which is very similar to the way we see.

Look upon my works, you mighty, and despair

haha yes and it really served a purpose to the story...

Like looking through a cataract.  Or, what Ridley sees when wearing beer goggles!

At least this item won't be included among the questions of 'The Haters' List of Alien Unanswered Questions'...

Alien 3's fisheye perspective looked more "Alien" and visually effective than the perspective shown in Covenant.

Lol Ati, it will be on The Haters' List of Alien Covenant Effects instead!

You mean the part where the xeno attacks the landing craft and smashed his head against the windshield.

Hmmm, yeah i noticed two small indentations on the head

Gralen that's probably because it you know, just smashed it's head against a window capable of withstanding the elements of space, but you never know lol

Look upon my works, you mighty, and despair

So Alien: Covenant answered a long-standing question that was actually answered 25 years ago back in 1992's Alien 3; congratulations Ridley & Fox.


And the two indentations that can be seen behind the Xeno's dome in Alien: Covenant are the same as those seen in Alien - eye sockets...
