an interesting unused trailer image. reveals whole different film.2,515 Views3 RepliesAdd A Reply
i have been advocating for a directors cut of AC for a while now and I was looking at some more unused trailer images to get an idea for the origimal cut and found this.
this may have already been covered on this website but i am not sure.
the image clearly shows the covenant ship ON THE PLANET. this meens that in the original cut the covenant ship actually did land on the planet. not just the dropship. this seems like an integral part of the movie because if they sent both ships down, than when ferris blows the lander, they still would have been able to escape. the only way that I could see the covenant landing on the planet is if the lander didn't witch would meen that there is alternate scenes for the lander such as the backburster, landing and blowing up. then once they get attacked, it wouldent make sense to follow david if they had the entire covenant on the planet. the whole story dosn't make sense anymore. there seems as if there was a completlt different plot shot intirely.
sorry if I repeated some stuff or if the artical sounds a bit convoluted. I am just starting to think about ths and my thoughts on this are jumbled.
let me know wha you think in the comments.

This shot is a interesting one and debated a bit prior to AC.
I was not sure it would be the Covenant because i felt the ship appeared to be to Fragile to enter the Planet and Land and take off again, the structure of the ship appeared to not work with this. I looked at the Covenant Ship as being much thinner than it appeared, like some kind of Grape Vine, where the Grapes are the many Modules attached to the Ship.
I always felt the Lander used to rescue the crew by Tennessee would be used to collect the Modules of the Covenant and take them to the surface where they are assembled like some giant Lego Set. Essentially those Rooms are attached via Airlocks to the Main Structure of the Covenant but they could be disconnected and assembled on a World thus becoming the Architecture/Outpost and so not requiring them to Assemble a Outpost from Scratch.
THIS is what i pondered we shall see in AC as far as that Shot on the OT.
The other option i thought of was during the rumored flash back scene of Daniels and Jacob, i wondered if Daniels would sit peering through the Window at the Stars, she dreams of the Memories she had, and they end up talking about the Lake, and then we see Daniels drift from this memory and we see the Window with that Lake, then disappear to reveal Stars.
Again.... once the movie came out, this was not the case... but i cant help but wonder if this was the case in a extended scene...
So for now, who knows what this shot was all about.

That's not the ship, it's Daniels and her husbands home on earth if I recall correctly. The footage is in the Blu-Ray. They mention the cabin they're going to build.
this is daneils on earth.
