Alien: Covenant ..... The Story So Far!70,548 Views185 RepliesAdd A Reply
I am starting this Topic to discus the Plot of Alien: Covenant as it unfolds, and to use information that was released after the COVENANT Name Change. So we can gradually discus how the Plot Thickens as more information is released from now until the Movie is out and try and peice together what we feel the movie is going to be about and what path it will be taking us down. I only wish to try and use information released after the Alien: Covenant Name Change... but we can draw upon other information released prior if any new information released after the Alien: Covenant Name Change supports it. Feel free to add any extra information and discus what you feel the movie is going to show us based on Official Information released.
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Update: 30 January... Noomi Rapace (Shaw) will not be apearing. (or may not be shooting in Sydney).
Michael Fassbender (David* plus another role?), Katherine Waterston (Daniels),Demián Bichir, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Jussie Smolett and Callie Hernandez, Alex England
Danny McBride, Billy Crudup (Both in Talks)
Additional Plot Information (Not included in the Synopsis)
*The Movie will take place 10 years after the events of Prometheus (year 2104+).
*The World the crew of the Covenant will arrive at will have a Evolving Creature that the Engineers or their Technology had a role in its origin.
*The Movie will try to answer who made the Beast (Xenomorph) and for what reason.
*The hints seem to be that it was a Bio-Mechanical Bio-Weapon and it will explain that.
*There will be all 4 Stages of the Beast (Xenomorph?) Egg, Face-Hugger, Chest-Burster, then the Big Boy.
*The movie (or sequels) will re-introduce the Alien (Xenomorph) back into the Franchise.
*Ridley feels the Franchise did not fully explore the Creature, and that without that Creature based of HR Gigers Work the movie Franchise would not have worked.
*The Movie will have 2 sequels at which time by the end we shall know the Xenomorph Origins and why the Space Jockey got to LV-426 or at the very least why/how did he get that Organism inside him.
*They will be comming in from the back end and will eventually reach Alien via the back door.
*Elizabeth Shaw will play a minor role at very least in the Next Movie, but there is not explantion to why.
*David will be reprising his role and that of a Doppelganger.
*The Emphasis seems to be on the David the Covenant finds as Synthetic.
*The World the Covenant finds is a scene of Disaster.
*The Movie will be shot in New South Wales, with Shooting Locations and a lot of work done in Sydney at a Movie Studio (Sydney Fox Studio).
*The Movie will feature Monumental Forest and Monumental Rock and the rest will be in the studio with fairly Formidable CGI.
*Micheal Biehn added in a interview about Alien 5, that both movies are set in similar theme, but that they take place on Different Worlds and Aliens is set THOUSANDS of years after Alien: Covenant.
*The Movie would be on the same tangent as Alien 5 but they would both be treading different paths, and Alien 5 goes out next after Alien: Covenant and seems they know more than they let on about Alien 5 Title, but Ridley then said it would be a Alien: Prefix but after both movies we shall see how the bus is being driven... pointing to some connection between both movies?
So feel free to discus of add information to the above and try and draw up any ideas of what you think may be happening as far as Alien Covenant mainly.... but if you wish how it could connect to other movies both past and future to the Franchise.
Update * Mid January 2016
*There will be a Chest Buster Scene that would be more gruesome than the 1979 Original
Update * End January 2016
*Alien Covenant is casting Extras aged between 8-40 who are either Very Small and Thin, or Very Tall and Thin but who also have to be very Strong and Athletic and skilled as Acrobats, Contortionists and the like.
*Noomi Rapace (Dr Shaw) may not be apearing in the next movie. (But this could mean not part of the shooting in Australia)

@MonsterZero and they have zero detection against space ship flying into their home with deadly weapon!? It's like a plane full of nuclear bombs flying straight into USA's city centre undetected. We are talking about a species with >1000 IQ.
@eng....Can imagine they were shocked that some alien could fly their ship! What kind of IQ does it take to fly a Juggernaut? It'd be like me seeing a monkey flying a 747.
Well...lets change the plot: David gets captured and his head pulled off? Davids dead(again)..Shaw is captured...Maybe a story centered on Shaw and the Engineers? Maybe Shaw befriends one of the cute ones and they get married? Not sure I want to see a that movie.
It might take a high iq to workout or not if the diverless cars are anything to go by :D . Just get in and say engineer home world please :) .
And yes those so called engineers looked like complete idiots... seems to be a theme that... looking like idiots.
"It's almost as if they are making it up as they go along" :D
Are those THE Engineers or just a colony? Farmers, bankers, grunts...just normal engineers just like humans wandering around our cities ..oblivious to everything.
I didn't see weapons in their hands....no space ships flying around. just a normal perfect day in the perfect world and very safe world of perfect creatures.
I'd say Engineers are on our level IQ's in 300's....They have anti gravity and warp travel...just like humans...I have yet to see anything they have produced that exceeds human inventions.
