Today marks the date with which content embargoes placed on Fox's 2017 film showcase event have been lifted. That means press and media outlets who attended the event can now freely post and share their experiences online. Beware, the descriptions below do contain some minor spoilers concerning Alien birthing scenes. Collider are the first outlet to re-cap the event, below is a rundown of their report: 

This world is very different from the planets in Prometheus and other Alien films because it’s a lot more like earth in terms of environment. There are forests and fields and lakes, which probably makes it more habitable for humans to live there, but also more prone to alien life. Now, mind you, these clips mainly showed the aftermath of some of the crew who had landed on the planet as some of them had clearly been infected with the eggs, as we got to see these new breed aliens escaping from their hosts in particularly gory fashion.

This is where things get spoilery...

The first example of this is a scene that involves two of the film’s female actors and an unidentified male actor who has an alien inside him. We see that his back is being punctured from inside by a number of spikes, which turns out to be the new Neomorph, who eventually bursts out of him. We could see that it’s quite adorable as a baby even though it has this spikey tail we haven’t seen on previous incarnations. As it happens, one of the women has been isolated in the room with her now dead colleague and before she can get out, the alien kills her, too. (That recent picture of the blood-splattered window? That was from this sequence.)

One thing leads to another and then that lander explodes, killing the other woman as she comes out with her body on fire as some of their crewmates return to the lander. Apparently, a man they’re bringing back with them has also been “infected,” but the Neomorph he’s hosting doesn’t bother exploding out of his body but rather climbs back up his throat and explodes out of his mouth, basically blowing his head up in the process.

We have also now learned what Katherine Waterston's role is in Alien: Covenant. During an interview at the event, Waterston revealed that Daniels is the chief terraformist on the colonization mission - she helps to build better worlds:

She’s the chief terraformist on this colonization mission, so she’s basically a space gardener. She’s an impressive woman, and she’s smart and capable and everything, but she’s just a member of the crew. She’s not a warrior or anything. It’s just that the circumstances push her into a very unexpected kind of combat, and she just happens to be one of those people, it turns out, that when push comes to shove, she’s got a great deal of strength and confidence. It’s not necessarily something she knows about herself.

Be sure to read the full write-up over on Collider

As other outlets release their accounts of the event, we'll be sure to keep you posted.

Thanks to Dark Nebula for the link!

The first trailer for Alien: Covenant will debut tomorrow, on Christmas Day. Be sure to check the Alien: Covenant Trailer Page often for when it's released online!

I do also wonder if we will see the process of "Egg-Morphing" as we saw in the directors cut of Alien with Brett and Dallas.

Huh, so it does appear the article is offline.

Rumor has it the embargo is supposed to end to coincide with the trailer's release. Many are thinking it'll be at midnight tonight. I'll be keeping an eye out!
