Fox's official Alien: Covenant website has been updated with linking to an Alien: Covenant page on Fox Movies' official site! The website features the film's plot synopsis and cast info, however no trailer.... yet.

We have also discovered another official Alien: Covenant website, which as far as we can tell is still under construction. The site appears to be a UK based domain which Fox plan on using to promote ticket sales in the United Kingdom. One of our regulars, Daniel Woods alerted us of the domain and after research its WHOIS information, have confirmed that it is in fact owned and managed by Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.

As I said, the site seems to be under construction, despite being publicly accessible. Funny enough, the Facebook icon in the top right of the website's template actually links to the Independence Day: Resurgence UK Facebook page, not an Alien: Covenant page.

Most images on the website are broken and when I tried to access them through direct URL after viewing the page's source code, I was met with an "Access Denied" response. However, the Synopsis tab works and offers an up-to-date version of Alien: Covenant's official synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

The "Share" tab also works, with links to share the tagline "Watch #aliencovenant with me" to Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.

Also, scanning through the site's source code, I also located what will eventually be the Alien: Covenant trailer embed code. Sadly though, the server hosting the video and most images for the website is inaccessible, at least for me. However, the link is:' + S.vM.moviePathName() + '.mp4'.

I was able to download a text-less version of the poster, the "Get tickets" image which is featured as the head of this article and the icon (same as the poster) used for the site's social media.

Beyond this I wasn't able to scrape much else out of the site's code. The rest of the images and videos which will eventually be properly displayed are locked up and can't be accessed through direct URL.

If you want to check out the site yourself, the link is I expect Fox will be quick to make this site private soon after this post goes live.

Alien: Covenant will release in theaters on May 18th in the UK and May 19th in North America.

No doubt, the trailer is inbound soon... Watch this space for more breaking news!

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.

I expect a trailer tomorrow


EngineerAdmin23332 XPDec-22-2016 8:59 PM

I still expect it to land on Christmas eve, with one more viral image tomorrow morning at 9am EST. Time will tell, only 24 hours or so to go before we know for sure!

I'm in agreement with Chris. I think we will get one more final photo, perhaps one of the creatures will be in this photo and the trailer Saturday.

Has anyone gone to see Assissans Creed? I thought for sure they would include the trailer with that movie since it's starring Fassbender. 


OvomorphMember69 XPDec-23-2016 12:42 AM

I predict that today we'll see one last photo of an outline of a new alien-type, lurking in the shadows - nothing too detailed but just enough to make us scratch our eyes out from anticipation before the trailer's release on Xmas Eve. :)

About 30 more minutes till the next release.


EngineerAdmin23332 XPDec-23-2016 6:08 AM

Nothing yet... Keeping my eyes peeled though.


FacehuggerMember159 XPDec-23-2016 6:13 AM

Thanks, CsapiX.  Hard to know if the information is legitimate or not being from YouTube, but 2 things of note...

- most violent 'Alien' movie yet;  never seen so much blood or torn bodies

- trailer announced on December 26

Perhaps a trailer will debut then if nothing shows up. Fingers crossed

New pic...Walter?


FacehuggerMember159 XPDec-23-2016 7:30 AM

Yes, Walter.  And this time, not accompanied with any numbers.  But other than that, what the heck is this picture about?  He's not wearing shoes (he took them off to play?), it's a beautiful Steinway in a large, white, clean room.  2001-esque.  I haven't figured out if this picture tells us anything else... or is even supposed to.
