Unfortunately, 20th Century Fox have decided to withdraw themselves from this year's San Diego Comic-Con presentations, which means no Alien: Covenant teaser trailer.

According to a fresh report from The Wrap, Fox have decided not to preview any exclusive footage from the Prometheus sequel to attendees of the convention's popular Hall H event because of potential piracy concerns. Every year studios unveil upcoming projects to eager fans through the Hall H event at San Diego Comic-Con exclusively, but recently the footage shown during these events seem to leak out online within days of its unveiling. This, of course is extremely frustrating for studios.

With so much secrecy and anticipation for Alien: Covenant currently building, it comes as no surprise that Fox would rather wait and preview high quality footage to its massive fan base, rather than risk a low quality rip leaking out online.

The future of Alien

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.

It's probably for the best. As long as a full trailer is released in the lead up to Covenant, and it doesn't give too much away, i'll be happy with that.

I'll be avoiding full trailers. I will sample a teaser, though.


PraetorianMember2674 XPJun-22-2016 9:16 AM

I'm glad about this, because it's so hard not to watch and I feel it's far too early to give anything away!


ChestbursterMember839 XPJun-22-2016 9:24 AM

Yeah it is early. That is usually my problem, a lot of marketing for movies starts reeaally early and then when the movie gets close to coming out, there are three full trailers, tons of TV spots, and whatever else they have done to promote. 

Glad that they will wait a bit, but no matter what I said, I cans till hardly wait for a trailer haha

Im sure by the Fall, we will see a teaser trailer, December at the latest. 


ChestbursterMember839 XPJun-22-2016 11:10 AM

Yeah I would think that once it gets down to just about a year before release a trailer should be out

FacehuggerMember488 XPJun-22-2016 4:47 PMPerhaps with the Star Wars: Rogue One in December would be the latest or in October...


FacehuggerMember425 XPJun-23-2016 5:21 AM

Little disappointing to me.


DeaconMember10333 XPJun-23-2016 8:47 AM

I think they could maybe drop some teaser images and posters, but maybe its a wise move to not show any footage at this time.

But for a movie they want to keep secret they have released images and comments that are giving a bit away... or maybe they are trying to put us off the scent?


DeaconMember10333 XPJun-24-2016 6:23 PM

I hope they release something!

We have been given teasers of the Ship, we seen some part of the Ship or Lander get blown up, we have seen Katherine Waterston sitting in one of the coridors of the ship... we have seen a number of cast onset in one of the interiors of the Ship (with David doppelganger maybe?)

We have seen Danny McBride on some sort of Bridge... and so we have been shown some elements of the Ships.

And so why not give away the Ship?

The movie is Covenant, the ship is Covenant and we seen the Logo/Badge...

So why not a teaser poster like these.

With a Plot Line relevant to the movie in a cryptic way... like how Prometheus was "The search for our beginning could lead to our End"

so yes have a shot of either Covenant in Space, or the Lander on the surface, even if they tease the Concept work that the ship is based off..

for example..

Note the first image was the Design before the Final one..

So yes a teaser like these would be Great with a Tag Line....

Maybe like "Ones Paradise is anothers Pandemonium"

Which would lead to hope to find a Paradise but finding Hell which i think is what the Movie is going for.


OvomorphMember44 XPJul-12-2016 3:23 AM

Yes,I think it's a good move 


NeomorphMember1621 XPJul-12-2016 12:19 PM

Maybe they could show us some scenes but that those are not very important to the movie as a whole?
