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.

Although there is another article dedicated to it, it worth a mention on this page too, Dane Hallett's homage to the 40th Alien Anniversary, which consists in links to a limited collection of free, high resolution, alternate Alien posters.

The last one has just been posted amd link will only be available for a short while.

Here it is:

daliens I didn't think they would be able to pull it together to perform the play on Alien Day- that is fantastic. Pricey tickets must mean some good Scott Free support (and hopefully a film crew).

dk all the money will go to the North Bergen Theater and Arts Foundation.

In case there will be a film crew will be pro bono I think. I hope Ridley Scott will send a film crew, but what is Fox doing here, apart from advertising the event as we do? I did not see any engaging statement from their side other than how happy they are for the encore.

Let's still hope for more involvement and a film crew, so Fox, if you are reading this, you have the duty to record the event for the history. Or you have the right to remain silent.

Even if it doesn't get recorded for the masses, thanks to the crew and support from Scott Free and NECA for this- and I envy the ticket paying audience. To all, Happy Alien Day!!!

I trust Alien: The Play will be recorded this time.

They have to send a copy to Ridley Scott in case he will be busy with something else. And some bootleg records for us, at least.

It seems like we won't get any news from those "tough sons-of-bitches", though. That's disheartening!

Anyway, Happy Alien Day!
