They're putting it out on Blu Ray less than 3 months after it came out in theaters to try to recoup the money they've lost, hilarious.

@Dr.Curt Connors

This is standard practice and not a reflex. A lot of movies nowadays come out pretty quick behind their theatrical run. Wonder Woman is coming out on video in August too, I guess they're trying to recoup as well? Lol

Good comparison, a movie that's made a shitload of money to one that hasn't. I know some movies come out faster on Blu Ray than they used to, this is definitely panic for the Alien universe. Just keep your head in the sand and think Covenant is great and that Fox is happy with the amount of money it's made. Newsflash they're not

I'm not keeping my head in the sand, I'm being objective. You imply that since the movie is coming out three months from its theatrical run that its saying Fox is scrambling for cash but then I use Wonder Woman as an example since it is doing very well at the box office but coming out around the same time showing that what you believe to be panic is false. Now it just looks like you are trying to grasp at straws. Yes, Covenant didnt do great domestically but overall $228 million worldwide against a $97 mill budget isnt bad.

@Dr. Curt Connors

Ok? What do you want us to do? We didn't write Covenant, and who knows, maybe it didn't make a lot of money, but we love it just the same.

 

Are we "keeping our heads in the sand", because we love it? We're not going to stop loving it, just because some people don't.

 

Anyhow, Covenant isn't even finished making money. For example, I've ordered six "Weyland-Yutani: Covenant" T-shirts for me and my husband and my sister and my friends to wear to my birthday next month. Undoubtedly some of my birthday gifts will be Alien and Covenant related.

 

We love it and we're fans of it, ok? Some people just like the original movie and they feel it can't be topped. That's great, you all can just keep watching the original movie ad infinitum, don't let us stop you.

I'm excited for the Blu-ray. I want the sequel to get made and I'd be happy with just one more prequel. I like the idea of an Alien prequel trilogy..

Nicely put @VivisectedEngineer :-) Even if it didn't do the greatest, it's still a great film and there are lots of great films that bombed (WAY worse than Covenant) at the box office. I'm gladly throwing cash at Fox because I'm loving what they're doing. I'm stoked Covenant is coming out soon since I can't wait to watch it in my lair >:-) Hopefully Ridley gets to make as many films needed to properly tell his story.

It might not have a Director's Cut this soon, but maybe an extra could be a bootlegged phone cam version with people walking in front of the screen speaking Chinese and not seeing the Alien/morphs!

No Ridley was grasping at straws sniffing coke when he was making this movie, haha. Hopefully the Alien universe will rest in peace after this shitstorm. Covenant is a flop, people are considering The Mummy a flop which has made over 100 million more dollars than Covenant worldwide already and only has about a 30 million more dollar budget than Covenant so if that's the case Covenant is a huge flop.

And you're throwing the word great around very loosely, this movie is the furthest thing from great. It's a disgrace to the Alien film franchise.

Pull yourself out of the 1990s. It's 2017.

3-4 months from theatrical release to DVD/Blu is typical. Prometheus was only 4 months.

@Lawrence of Arabia

Thanks!!! I can't wait too! ...O_O; it comes out right on Krishna Janmashtami! ...Must...resist...the temptation to watch it while I should be at the temple...

Oh well, at least by then I can watch it to console myself over the tragic demise of my summer vacation T_T .And yes, hopefully Ridley WILL tell his story regardless of what detractors think. At this point in his career he doesn't have to cater to everyone's whims, he can focus on his own creative vision.

And

@Dr. Curt Connors

Covenant is GREAT! GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT!!! You saying otherwise is not going to change our minds. *Throws the word 'GREAT' all around the room to spite you* :D

Wow, that is a really interesting tidbit! Can you imagine the censorship person's thinking? "Regurgitating one facehugger embryo? Seems fine. REGURGITATING TWO FACEHUGGER EMBRYOS!? Oh, come on now! That's just obscene!" Hehe.

There were Blu Rays in the 90s, hahahahaha. Less than 3 months doesn't equal 3 to 4 months. That's like addition and subtraction, less than 3 months equals 2 months and however many days. Like May 19th to August 15th isn't quite 3 months, not very hard to figure that out and I suck at math. And yeah I know most movies come out on Blu Ray faster than they used to, read all comments before making statements as I said this in a previous comment, there are plenty of movies that still take longer to come out on Blu Ray cause they wait for holidays and such, man I am so dumb I guess. Thanks for reminding me it's 2017 where have I been, the years have flown by so fast just yesterday it was still the 90s, what the f#@k.

@Dr. Curt Connors

This conversation is inherently enjoyable to us all, because we're thinking about something we're fond of. We're all pretty happy to reminisce on Covenant. 

 

...Given that Covenant is something you hate, would you say this conversation is an unpleasant experience for you? Your obfuscated expletive seems to indicate as much.

No way I'm having a blast ripping this movie, it's always good times. That's just how I talk, I like those words and I'm pretty sure I'm doing it to the accordance of the rules. I could not use the symbols but I was told by some people to do so because bad words hurt people's feelings. Cause everyone on here is 5 I guess and hasn't heard those words ever, haha. Please don't use words like obfuscated those are too big for trolls like me.

Alright Dr. Curt Connors , I don't know if you are typing a response, but I need to sign off for the night.

But, seeing as how you are having a blast, I hope you will think about it. Really think about it. About Covenant, and all the parts that you especially hate.

 

Really think about that now, ok? Think about it the same way one thinks of a jingle from an advertisement, that one has no particular affinity for yet cannot help singing under his breath.

Remember to think in particular about those parts which you most hate, ok?

 

Bye. :)

Oh god, where do I start? Hate the most, David, but the scene I hate the most and should have walked out right afterward was the proto/xeno, whatever the hell it is, chest bursting out of Crudup's character and him and David with their arms up and all that ridiculous, cheesy garbage and terrible CGI. But I thought Ridley would make up for everything because I really wanted to like this movie bad, boy was I wrong. I think if he had had Daniels realize and maybe ask a few questions to make sure Walter was Walter and her knowing it was David and taking him out somehow that would have salvaged the movie for me. There still would have been plenty of other stuff I hated and lots of ridiculous stuff in the movie but if she would have taken out David I could have lived with it. But nope everyone is dumb cause when there are two androids who look exactly like each other one wouldn't ask a couple questions to make sure he was really who he was.

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
