The Alien: Covenant - The Official Collector's Edition book is currently set for a Jun 6th release date, but select comic shops have obtained their own exclusive copies a week ago. The book features a plethora of behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Alien: Covenant and specifically some fantastic looks at the film's practical effects Neomorphs and Xenomorphs, created by the talented group at Odd Studio and Creatures Inc. The folks over at AvPGalaxy managed to obtain an early copy of the book and have uploaded most images of interest. As you can see, there were practical suits and puppets created for pretty much every iteration of David's beasts:

For those looking to obtain their own copy of this book, you can currently pre-order it on Amazon in the US and UK.

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Good to see, those practical effects are amazing!

I don't have an IMAX cinema anywhere near me, so the Morphs and lab specimens were very hard to make out in any detail. 

Wish Daniels and co had looked around the lab more, so little screen time for such a beautifully detailed set! :(

The practical effects look great, but in the final product they seemed to have a thick layer of CGI over them which was disappointing, especially the CGI-looking slime from the alien. All of the practical sets were very impressive indeed! I'm glad Ridley still appreciates in-camera special effects and sets.

So cool!


FacehuggerMember120 XPMay-24-2017 3:10 PM

I like how they made inside ananatomy for the Neomorph Carapace & The Ovomorph (pictured in an earlier post)


FacehuggerMember402 XPMay-25-2017 12:32 AM

Awesome pictures. Thanks!


OvomorphMember14 XPMay-30-2017 3:04 AM

so will we get a butt-burster in the next sequel?


OvomorphMember32 XPMay-31-2017 3:30 PM

I'm impressed by these pictures, not by what I saw in the movie... Really. I feel sad.

Yeah Lone those dark sets were so tough to make out. That whole Necropolis was just so damn dark it's just a travesty. Seems what Ridley sees as average I'd say those sets were beyond amaze balls awesome. Looks like the illustrated book is they only way we are gonna get some detail on this stuff. That neomorrph suit on a dark night walking around a corner, wow, you talk about freaked out
