20th Century Fox have just shared an awesome new photo of the Alien: Covenant crew! Emulating the fateful dinner scene in Ridley Scott's original 1979 Alien, the photo captures the awakened Covenant crew members, gathered around their dining table. Katherine Waterston and Michael Fassbender head the front left and right sides of the table with James Franco standing in the middle of the team, at the far back. Franco is also wrapped in a blanket, suggesting he is not well.

In addition to the awesome photo (below) Fox have also unveiled that there will be a special sneak peek of Alien: Covenant TOMORROW during the TV show Legion on FX. So, be sure to keep an eye on Legion tomorrow for that special footage! If you're unable to watch Legion, then be sure to check out Alien-Covenant.com for when the footage is released online! Screenshots will be taken and uploaded as well.

About Alien: Covenant 2 / Alien Awakening

The state of the Alien: Covenant sequel continues to remain uncertain. Ridley Scott has mentioned previously that they have a story already in place and know exactly where the sequel to Covenant will go, however the recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox film properties by Disney have potentially put the rumored-to-be-titled Alien: Awakening on hold for the time being. As new details arise concerning Alien: Covenant 2 we will be your premiere source and you can find information on the Covenant sequel by visiting the About Alien: Awakening page here.

Reminds me of the crew from Alien in 1979... so psyched!!

FacehuggerMember159 XPFeb-21-2017 6:37 AM

Was it confirmed that James Franco is playing Waterston's husband?  He does have a wedding ring on, so he's married to someone.

The Last Dinner...for that crew.

This is exciting! The crew shot looks great! Plus, a sneak preview tomorrow. We are less than 3 months away!

I am also guessing the Viral Campaign will also start sometime soon.

Really exciting.

Looks like Goran D. Kleut is either playing the xenomorph or the neomorph.

I notice some dog tags on one of the crew members!

FacehuggerMember133 XPFeb-21-2017 8:36 AM

I wont be able to watch it tonight but looking forward to seeing whatever gets shown!  Hopefully someone is recording tonight!

OvomorphMember19 XPFeb-21-2017 8:45 AM

Finally!! :D

The facial expression of the fifth person from the right(dark hair lady) totally reminds me of Lambert.

TrilobiteMember9954 XPFeb-21-2017 9:43 AM

Oh Boy...... cant wait...

And i will be busy till latter but boy oh boy i am going to Analyze the Crap out of this photo.

This is one Big JIGSAW Piece...

That now allows me to connect more dots....

So i will now be able to debate..

*Who's is that Dog Tag?  (not Shaws)

*Who is the guy with Daniels in front of the Temple after Hell breaks loose?

Plus.... where are Goran D. Kleut and  Matt Scaletti

I assumed Matt Scaletti was a part of the crew?  If we take this image as all of the Covenant crew we will see in the movie, from those left on the Covenant, the Drop Ship Expedition and any rescue mission.

Then this now narrows down a few things ;)

Key character on the left, key character on the right...

And James Franco is the centre, like Jesus...

FacehuggerMember488 XPFeb-21-2017 11:24 AM

The Hula Girl on the table alludes to Alien with the rocking bird that we saw in Alien. A small easter egg I would suppose. 

 

Also, tomorrow could be the kick off for the viral or a new trailer? 

 

Hopefully, it will be online.

XenomorphMember1185 XPFeb-21-2017 11:43 AM

And how many survive..? My guess is 3.

FacehuggerMember288 XPFeb-21-2017 11:50 AM

I just want believable performances by the lions share of this 15 strong crew and to be bothered what becomes of them, as per the 1979 gem

Is it just me or the person standing all the way to right, whatever he is wearing reminds me of a facehugger which I find weird and confidential...

They got it all! Let's get this Covenant show on the road!

I am hooked . . .

Neomorph

ChestbursterMember731 XPFeb-21-2017 12:56 PM

My first impression: A L I E N

Again with Ridley's attention to detail and homage to Alien such as the little figurine on the table, the door color pattern behind the crew and the more primitive interface on the screens. 

Goddamn Tropics in here

I agree. A fundamental part in a great film is to feel engaged by believable acting and characters we can relate to, like the space truck drivers in Alien.

Bottle of Jack Daniels. Reference to the character Daniels? I wonder how many more easter eggs we can find.

WOW!!!!! Sooooo many potential victims :) :)

ChestbursterMember935 XPFeb-22-2017 12:38 AM

Yes, it reminds us of "The Last Supper" in Alien, doesn't it? They were 7 on The Nostromo (the 8th passenger had an other taste in food) and fit around the small, round dinner table. The crew in The Covenant seem to be 15? They can't possibly fit around that small table? There has to be a canteen somewhere? Perhaps in the nest? :)

@BigDave  Dont analyse too much.  The scene being shot here is not in the movie its a promo piece. Plus Goran only wears a suit ;-) and Scaletti is only a background extra in a cryo bed.

OvomorphMember11 XPFeb-22-2017 6:40 AM

James Franco is in this??? He better die real quick or the movie is gonna suck.

OvomorphMember66 XPFeb-22-2017 7:10 AM

RinaRhodon : I totally get what you mean, but also, the third lady on the left...guess it was her brown jacket, but she also reminded me a bit of Lambert. 

now I'll be very glad if any of these actors can duplicate the same kind of intensity Veronica Cartwright brought to her Lambert performance...that feeling of being totally terrorized & doom

The Alien Covenant Instagram has been uploading photos...let the marketing begin!

Let the games begin tonight!!!!

BigDave

TrilobiteMember9954 XPFeb-22-2017 11:15 AM

I remember mentioning the other day on a guess when we should get more information and marketing and i said .. maybe 23rd February i.e LV-223

Well by the time what ever they have planned for tonight airs, it would be 23rd Feb GMT, i wonder if the marketing will start to roll out now?

BigDave

TrilobiteMember9954 XPFeb-22-2017 11:29 AM

"Yes, it reminds us of "The Last Supper" in Alien, doesn't it? "

Maybe more to it?  I mean they have been using Religious Symbolism in the past and even in AC, and so i wonder if this could be like the Last Supper?

Does this mean a Sacrificial Role for James Franco?

If not and if he dies earlier on and plays a small part then is his death not so much a Accident?  Who is the Judas?

I find it interesting how Franco is positioned in this photo at the Center just as Christ from the Last Supper, but again we cant maybe read to much into this,  as far as James Franco being at the center as far as him having a big role in the Plot.

If he is the Captain or even lead Corporation Representative then maybe this is all this means, Daniels and Walter on the either side as they are i think the TWO key players in the movie. Which we all know anyway.

@David007

do you have the direct address for those photos?

And do you need to sign up to view them? If they are official then they are interesting especially the David/Walter one.

It looks like Walter unless David goes to the Covenant and they get him some clothes..... he looks very sad at what ever happens and its as if he is watching something leave, or maybe become destroyed.

TrilobiteMember9954 XPFeb-22-2017 11:36 AM

"@BigDave  Dont analyse too much.  The scene being shot here is not in the movie its a promo piece. "

Indeed but it seems to be a shot taken after a scene in the movie, as the "See How it All Began" imagine shows.

I think indeed Goran would be playing either a Engineer, or potentially the guy in a Alien Suit. It will be interesting to see which.

Whats interesting is the comment you made about "Scaletti is only a background extra in a cryo bed"

I find it hard to see him listed as cast if he is to appear in the distance and so it has to be a shot that at least you can clearly make him out......

I always wondered if he was a contender for the Male who was next to Daniels in front of the Temple Shot, if we now discount that it does limit down the possibilities a lot... which i had from the Trailer narrowed down to just 2-3 anyway.

Without trying to spoil anything here, we had rumors of a members early fate and we do see those Cryo-Pods with one failed....  can we not consider if this could now be Scaletti instead?

Which could open up other possible avenues for the Male who is with Daniels after things have gone bad.

OvomorphMember3 XPFeb-22-2017 12:34 PM

@BigDave what I meant is that this was a photographers shot whilst shooting one of the promo shorts, not shooting the movie narrative. This viral short is a poker game before the crew enter hypersleep and was directed by Ridleys son.

Very close now....the anticipation is overwhelming

ChestbursterMember935 XPFeb-23-2017 1:40 AM

BD: Yes, I wonder what happens to the first captain? Does he die even before they arrive in "Paradise"? Why, in that case? Judas might be David (and Walter)?

DPM714

OvomorphMember17 XPFeb-24-2017 11:27 AM

Well in scholarly recordings Judas is said to have sat beside Jesus(Franco) first on the left during the last supper, but in Leonardo di Vinci's famous version he sits second from the right.... So no one trust the bearded dudes!
