No problem. It is quite a beautiful poster with chaos and beauty. My favorite poster so far.

Hi I'm new made an account because this is blowing my mind

What is the structure/face in the background?? Am I the only one seeing it?

Top centre, and what looks like a right eye, next to the centre xenomorph.

FacehuggerMember488 XPMar-23-2017 6:43 AM

IF you look center top. It is very close to that of the Alien Queen's head. So, can there be a queen and if a queen, is Shaw or has Shaw been mutated into the queen by the hands of David.

It has "the depths of Hades..."  feel plastered all over it.

Lessee...Which do you prefer? Milton's "Paradise Lost", Dante's "Inferno", Virgils's "Aeneid", or the Biblical "Hell..."

Needless to say, we ain't in Kansas anymore...

Beautiful, looks like a very old painting that tells a horrifying story of when the unstoppable monsters (xeno, proto?) emerged from the darkness and the engineers were more or less brought to extinction.

There's just SO many of the heads (plus the obvious huge backdrop) that look like an alien queen. I hope this is just a nod to the fans, and that Ridley hasn't actually gone for including the queen in this movie!

I mean, I don't dislike the queen and everything "Aliens", but it's got some major differences to how I see Ridley's creatures and their species.

@ David007

While it does resemble the Queen's crest a queen will not be in Ridley Scott's Alien movies, it is Csmerons creation not his and i feel he prefers to keep with the mutation and  cosmic horror vibe rather than use the queen which automatically turns the xenomorph species into a bunch of dangerous insects and cannon fodder. I liked the Queen in Aliens but i prefer something a little deeper than that in this film universe....give me ancient horror with mutations and unspeakable macabre things we have yet to discover....that being said i think the crest resembkles the top of the mural from Prometheus

I'm not kidding.....if you zoom in....real tight in the upper right/left bottom center....is that....

ChestbursterMember907 XPMar-23-2017 6:56 AM

@Grinning I so agree with you. 

@Steve LOL!

OvomorphMember14 XPMar-23-2017 6:59 AM

While it does resemble a queen it's more likely to be Shaw, however it really doesn't resemble her at all unlike Gigers art. 

This poster is amazing props to whoever created it!

FacehuggerMember488 XPMar-23-2017 7:01 AM

What if Scott creates his version of the egg layer...Shaw who has been engineered, made perfect by David? Rather than use Cameron's creation, Scott goes into his own direction with a Giger like queen...a mother.

David 7

FacehuggerMember488 XPMar-23-2017 7:04 AM

Aside from the idea of a mother. It would appear the Xeno takes out the engineers...inflicted by David? Or by their own hand?

Starlogger

ChestbursterMember907 XPMar-23-2017 7:09 AM

@Xeno I agree with you. Just looking to try and find out the artist's name. It'd be cool to know. Very "Giger" esque and Giger worthy!

Suspensorium

OvomorphMember13 XPMar-23-2017 7:14 AM

I'm wondering what all the biomech tentacles are. If they're just an artistic thing showing that the xeno species strangle and eradicate the engineer (or native human) race, or if it's from a creature we'll actually get to see.

Considering how many strange variations of the xeno we're seeing, I'm guessing it's just artistic. Love the stone sculpture features of it. Monolithic.

ChestbursterMember731 XPMar-23-2017 7:15 AM

Uppermost/central part does indeed look very similar to the Alien Queen's crown-like head, and if you follow the centreline further down while trying to exclude all the xenos, facehuggers and engineers (please get out of the way we're trying to analyze something here ok), notice the symmetrical yet partly concealed pattern covering most of the upper part of the picture. 

It does look like a giant head, whether it's an actual creature, mural or statue. (Tyrannoxenos Rexmorphus. Gigantus Indeedus.)

Could it perhaps be a design variation of the creature on the cover below?

FacehuggerMember355 XPMar-23-2017 7:19 AM

@Neomorph. It's the rampaging Dildomorphus Rex.

Sorry, I had to bring it up....

OvomorphMember14 XPMar-23-2017 7:19 AM

@starlogger cool do let us know if you find the artist, I can't seem to. Somebody on instagram suggested it's inspired by auguste rodin's 'gates of hell' 

Starlogger

ChestbursterMember907 XPMar-23-2017 7:24 AM

@Xeno oh yes it is absolutely influenced by Rodin. That's without question.

XenomorphMember1263 XPMar-23-2017 8:41 AM

Amazing! I need this poster.

Hard to believe Ridley would let James Cameron's 'Queen' get involved with his project. I'd say it's Bio-mech Shaw.

Necronom IV

FacehuggerMember152 XPMar-23-2017 9:32 AM

Nah, there was a similar crest in the mural in Prometheus. I do not think it is a queen. It's just a design thing for us nerds to go crazy about :)

"Kane's son"

TrilobiteMember8212 XPMar-23-2017 9:40 AM

Interesting. I see a lot of bio but really no mechanical. No true Xenomorph yet?

OvomorphMember38 XPMar-23-2017 9:44 AM

It's a beautifully haunting masterpiece. If I could borrow a line from Ash.....

Supposedly this is a set piece on the main stage in the film. I read that over at the AVP site.

This has just becomey wallpaper on my phone....geek moment.

A fantastic piece of artwork telling the story of the end of a civilisation..would be great if this was shown in film as a warning to those who mess with too and play god.. The peaceful race shown eradicated in covenant trailers keep this to show what dangers await those that tamper with DNA of xeno

SteveRogers1973

FacehuggerMember203 XPMar-23-2017 11:07 AM

Its not the Queen crest.  It's an optical illusion.  Cover your left eye only, turn off all the lights, then turn off the computer BUT keep your left eye covered.....its Shaw

That poster looks really good.

I hope they use it for the Blu-ray and DVD cases.
