Apparently there was an extended cut of the shower death scene in Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant none of us were aware of! Thanks to YouTuber Drechsler, the following extended cut was uploaded to YouTube last month which you can read more about below.
The added footage shows more of the Xenomorph's attack on Upworth after killing Jussie Smollett’s character Ricks. The video is age-restricted on YouTube so you'll need to be signed in to watch it (it also has a bizarre music overlay which we suspect was used to avoid the video from being flagged for copyright infringement). Click here to watch the scene!
The extended footage definitely makes the scene better - the way the Xenomorph attacks Upworth and launches through the shower glass - epic.
What do you think of the extended footage? Sound off in the comments below!

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.
