20th Century Fox and Entertainment Weekly have debuted two new movie stills from Alien: Covenant! The first image is of Walter in board the Covenant, as the mission begins. This shot shows Walter inspecting what I believe to be a piece of one of the Cryo-stasis pods - most likely that belonging to James Franco's character Branson, as we know something happens to his stasis pod, leading to his deteriorating health we witnessed in The Last Supper Prologue video. Could this mean Brandon's stasis pod was sabotaged? Is Walter the culprit or the detective?

Next up we have another shot of the David vs. Paradise scene which was teased in the recent Empire Magazine issue. This image however shows David unveiling the payload, before the Urns were actually released from the Juggernaut's cargo hold. These images offer a pretty decent example of how the weapon systems of these Engineer ships function.

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.

The line in a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' song keeps playing over in my head these days... "The waiting is the hardest part". :-)

I suspect Walter is the 'Detective', as David is already the villian. Having two Synths as villians, would be 'clumsy'.

The electromagnetic/gravimetric deployment systems for the urns is an impressive piece of visual candy, elegant and would allow Precise-patterning of the bombardment.
My brain's totally Nomming on the spoilers, they're kicking off and igniting lots of inspiration and ideas. :)

Does anyone know what Daniels first name is?  

The pictures of the citadel are absolutely amazing.  I'm beginning to wonder if there is more to David's motivation then just psychopathic tendency's.  If,perhaps, he is not responsible for Shaw's death but avenging it?



PraetorianMember2267 XPApr-21-2017 7:46 PM

I wonder if Daniels and tennessee names were inspired from a  glass of

What if..... 


Oram was actually the one behind Branson's pod sabotage? Oram strikes me as someone who doesn't impress Branson, so perhaps Oram is looking for some sort of way to "get Branson out of the picture". The reason I'm leaning this way is in the Last Supper promo spot, Branson defers to Daniels to give the speech to the crew just before he hits cryo, rather than give that duty to Oram. Perhaps Oram, even being 2nd in command, feels as if he's beneath those close to Branson.


I'm just throwing stuff at the wall to see what might stick lol.


EDIT: I completely missed the thread discussing Oram being the cryo-killer. Maybe I'm onto something after all lol

He's , WALTER,  holding a lab grown ear.  He can regenerate and "heal" to a certain degree.  He is repairing his own face as noted by mesh bandages on his skin in other pics.

Thank you....

I think is very possible that David want to see the devastating result of the Engineers weapon and that is to destroy an entire civilization. After all this is the purpose of this weapon. This planet with this diffrent Engineers, has ofer the perfect oportunity for David. I  think also David want to expierence the feeling of a destroyer and as life giver. After all the mission from Earth was finish one way or another and he maybe have he s new own goals, with a behavior being and acting like some God or something.
