Filmmaker Job Willins knows his Alien movies, and also happens to be a master of the fan edit, chopping up and remastering existing theatrical cuts of sci-fi films to create something new and provocative. He delivered Derelict in 2015, joining scenes from Prometheus with 1979's Alien, and again for Man of Tomorrow, meshing together Zack Snyder's Man of Steel and Batman v Superman.

His latest project is Paradise, an ambitious fan edit combining Prometheus and Alien: Covenant and following Michael Fassbender's unstable android, David, as the main narrative focus. Willins also interspersed deleted scenes, rarely seen promotional material, and imagery used in trailers and TV spots that never made it to the finished films, scoring them with different snippets of music he acknowledges in the credits.

"The goal was to intercut material from both films to tell a story in a way that favors the strengths of both," Willins explained on his Tumblr site. "With a runtime of about 2.5 hours, I aimed to enhance much of the excitement and mystery from the two films by unfolding them in parallel and playing them off one-another. This method also allowed opportunities to emphasize the major theme of creator/creation relationship that runs through both stories and hopefully achieve a unique viewing experience rather than merely a significantly abridged double-feature."

I had seen the Gift-bearer Prometheus Edit and that was well done.

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.
