Principal photography has officially concluded for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant last night! Many of the crew have taken to social media to share photos of their celebrations!
Alien: Covenant now moves on to post-production with special effects work being handled by Animal Logic and MPC.
Throughout Alien: Covenant's filming in Australia, a few set photos made their way online, but thankfully nothing too revealing was exposed. You can browse a full re-cap of the various set photos taken from Alien: Covenant on our Prometheus Movies news blog!
Now begins the wait for an official teaser trailer. We expect the first footage to debut will be cryptic and subtle, like the first Alien (1979) trailer as well as Prometheus' first teaser. When exactly the first trailer will drop is anyone's guess. Fox will not be showing any footage at Hall H during Comic-Con, but that's not to say they won't release something online during that time.

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.
