20th Century Fox just finished debuting the first trailer for Alien: Covenant, as well as some extra footage to a select number of reporters during a exposition event for their upcoming 2017 film lineup. The reviews and opinions have just begun to flood social media platforms and the reception seems to be unanimous - Alien: Covenant is everything we've been waiting for!
Attendees were asked not to reveal specific details about the trailer or footage, however that hasn't stopped some little details from slipping. A couple things we've learned:
There is a "killer shower scene". What exactly this entails we're unsure, but likely will involve an unfortunate death for one of the Covenant's crew members.
A parasitic Alien was shown! This likely references the Neomorphs discussed prior - protruding Aliens, bursting from the backs of its victims.
The classic Facehugger and Xenomorph are definitely not withheld. The film definitely has a definite feel of Alien and Aliens. Apparently also, Waterston's character Daniels has parallels to Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Ripley.
It also sounds like Alien: Covenant is everything fans were hoping to receive with Prometheus. Of course Prometheus had its own benefits and insightful concepts, it seems like Covenant will be more of a nostalgia trip for fans of the original films.
Also confirmed, is the fact that the Covenant is a colony ship, on a mission to populate a new planet. The crew are all couples, aimed to populate the colony.
The immense positive feedback is music to our ears here at Scified and Alien-Covenant.com.
The first trailer for Alien: Covenant is expected to drop any time before December 21st. Fox could very well release it this weekend or anytime next week. Unfortunately we don't know the exact date and time. However, once the trailer does drop, you can be sure to watch it here as soon as it's online!

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.

Fuck, I nearly died then I thought the trailer was out, this is all very good news however trailers still can be very deceiving so I just hope the film lives up to the hype the trailer is obviously going to create, fingers crossed..
Everything I've read so far about AC echoes straightforward horror and gore, but then again a trailer can be cleverly cut together to attract a certain type of fanbase like Prometheus or Suicide Squad.
Nice to see my Sherlock Skills may be still good.. lol
When we looking at comments about Couples and beating the Chest Buster Scene... a long while ago so seems, i did say a love scene would be great... i.e re-use the un-used Holloway/Watts Scene....
The Killer Shower Scene could be just that.. i thought such a scene could be in order from combine Ridleys Chest Buster beating scene and Couples and well the Franchise has re-used un-used concepts and ideas before.
Talking of which..... Baby Head Aliens... well those leaked Prop Photos showed a few different such Aliens... which are based off some unused Prometheus concepts..
I would be a bit disappointed if these are from Spores, unless like a theory i mentioned in regards to the Spore leak a while back and how it could fit in with Alien Covenant and Couples...
IMAGINE...... as i said before.. but now we got Shower Detail..
The Spores infect Pregnant Female.. who could be 8-16 weeks pregnant.... they then with their partner have a shower and make out a bit.... Female gets pains... in her Stomach she is worried and her Partner too about the Baby... as he goes to get help she collapses he goes over... to her and BOOOOOM! we get a Baby-Head Alien Chest Buster..
That would be EPIC.... it would fit the Spore potential well logical way it could infect someone to then produce a Baby like that..... the Spores basically do a Fifield on the Baby.... this scene would Top Alien for sure...
Lets see if my hunch is right ;)
No soon as that Killer Shower Scene was mentioned... i think it could fit..
I mean come on.... whats worse?
1) Xeno like Monster kills someone in the Shower
2) Spore Back Burster in Shower (especially in a Male)
3) A Couple having a Baby, have shower and infected females unborn baby Belly Bursts and its a Alien Hybrid Baby now..
The last image i came across not long ago on Pininterest tagged Prometheus/Avatar... now i have never seen Avatar (yep i know) and so cant say for sure how its related to either..
I have never seen it before but it does look like Eggs near those trees as the Spore Leak claimed.. this is not to say its from AC... just that i found it on the internet tagged with Avatar/Prometheus and looks like it could fit right in with AC.
Just noticed the the like Spider Looking thing too... lol
It does seem interesting and seems to indicate at least TWO main Monsters.... and also the speculation and theories that people shared that was similar to mine about maybe Walter could be the Host that gives the Xeno its Bio-Mechanical look could have been some pretty good speculation ;)
I saw the 4chan discussion and was skeptical at first because it essentially emulates what we've already discussed and speculated upon here on the forums for over a year now haha. That being said, I have heard that many of the concepts we've discussed and shared here are very close to what actually happens in the film, by those close to production. So, it could be legit.
We see a shot of Paradise as it used to be, then the image flickers and changes to how it is now that the black goo had run rampant.
The alarm song starts playing and Daniels is singing "You're my lucky star," and we then see the crew of the covenant disturb the spore pods. Cuts to back and neck bursters, and shots of full grown Belugamorphs.
We see a shot of Daniels being chased, and Danny McBride's character with a shotgun.
Then, we see a shot of David tampering with the goo and a baby alien. Then the alarm stops and the singing stops and we just here David say:
"The Perfect Organism"
Then, shot of the OG Bio-Mechanical xenomorph who then "grins" and slowly sticks his little mouth tongue out and roars.
then, Final note of loud trailer song and "Alien" forms on screen in the classic way, and "Covenant" flickers on like a light underneath.
This would be as a first teaser or trailer. More in line with the originals. Later trailers could touch upon the Engineer side of things
