Empire Magazine have just posted a new article with a clearer look at the new Alien: Covenant movie still we reported on yesterday. The still is of director Ridley Scott speaking with lead actress Katherine Waterston during a climactic scene from the film. In this piece as well, Waterston explains that Alien: Covenant wastes no time throwing the crew into turmoil - adding that unlike Ripley in Alien, Daniels is forced into survival mode from the very beginning.

Unlike Sigourney in Alien, [Daniels] is in a survival mode of sorts from the beginning. She’s not the captain, but she’s a natural leader so in times of crisis she falls into that position quite easily.

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.

"From the beginning" well, it looks as if it will be a film that dives right into it I like Alien were it was slow paced in the beginning. This makes me think that the security team will be infected and bring aboard the Aliens but I do wonder if the team of security guys will have some other crew members on the surface. 


FacehuggerMember316 XPDec-23-2016 11:27 AM

Maybe she's one of the security team?


EngineerAdmin23296 XPDec-23-2016 11:49 AM

I don't get that impression, but I mean most images we've seen of her have her carrying a rifle - so who knows!

Waterson will evolve faster than Ripley did in Alien. As She says up in the article, she is thrown right into it the action, where she has to survive right away. I think she is just thrown into a life threatening situation and has to deal with it without hesitation.

Hey I'm not the only one who thought she looked CG... just saying lol...




FacehuggerMember316 XPDec-23-2016 6:47 PM

I thought she was CG too, until I expanded the image. That lighting is set up for an entirely different camera. We're getting all kinds of stills, what an amazing Christmas!

Between Ridley and Dariusz, I imagine we can expect more world class cinematography and lighting. This is gonna be such a feast. I'm gonna poop.


OvomorphMember49 XPDec-23-2016 7:00 PM

Let the poop flow through you


FacehuggerMember316 XPDec-23-2016 7:51 PM

Thank you, Nick.nam. My poops will fly free. 

^welcome to the forum.^

excellent corridor design there.

I don't think the alien action will start from the first moment, that's not Ridley's style. She says that she is in a survival mode 'of sorts', so perhaps she is dealing with other issues on the ship in the beginning, unrelated to the aliens?
