Covenant Crew on Paradise Timeline
The below timeline is an attempt to reconcile the date/time stamps on the four above images with captures from Alien: Covenant.
As i stated before these dates IMO are flawed and more to do with order of filming rather than dates on Planet 4.
Here goes, December 5th film starts, crew recieve message. Takes 2 weeks to get to Planet 4 = Dec 19/20. Then the few days on the Planet i think lead to the birth of a certain creature around Dec 25 ish. Havent worked it out completely as i did a few months ago i have not got me notes here.
Take This.... This is the blood of our lord
"Note: they flubbed the timeline in the movie because the date "December 5, 2104" flashed when showing the Covenant hit in space by charged particles, weeks before."
I don't think the date/time stamp has anything to do with the order of filming. All of Alien: Covenant was filmed Spring-Summer 2016.
They made a mistake flashing December 5, 2104 before they got to the planet or four mistakes in the date/time images not counting weeks of travel time to get to Paradise from where Dr. Shaw's signal was picked up.
Going by the marketing images with the date/time stamp...the daylight/darkness reconciles with the scenes from Alien: Covenant.
That is why I believe both below images are from December 8, 2104. One, because 20th Century Fox labeled it with a date/time stamp and the view from Daniels window looking over the wheat field.
To summarize, it seems clear they got the date wrong somewhere. So, I reconciled to the image date/time stamps because that seemed to be the intent of the marketing and I believe used to send a message with the December 8, 2104 image.
Yes, the Covenant arrives at Planet 4 on 24, December 2104 - if I know correctly. (Yes, 24th again...)
I agree with you both. I just wish I had a date on a screen somewhere or some other marker to show the actual date on the surface...and not four cryptic time stamps. If I did, I would correct the timeline start and reconcile to a later date. Late December sounds reasonable.
Ingeniero - Or the answer is that we shouldn't focus on what the images show, perhaps they have a plus meaning:
For example, the last one: corridor/path meaning the end of the road - we see nobody/the corridor is empty meaning that the planet will become empty by the end of the movie, etc.
