The facehugger was designed by the artist Giger himself, so I think it's at least relatively more original. lol The physical appearance of the ship was also designed by him - it's only the plot setting regarding it that was borrowed.

One of many non spoiler reviews of Alien Covenant.
Spoiler: show


Tip: Lower expectations. P-:

Just watched it. It was great.


Spoiler: show
I'm just disappointed we're going to see the psychotic robot again one more time. Possibly 3 more times. Ugh. His god complex is already getting too old and to think I've never watched Prometheus but the review spoilers in youtube.

It didn't really answer a lot of questions about the engineers. Mr. I AM GOD just wants to create life. But there was a flaw to the mutagen. It needs host. Once its killed all the host it results in extinction. So what the robot did was just perfect the neomorph to have a breeding cycle which leads to the xenomorph. My hypothesis is that based on the spoiler youtube reviews circulating for months there are 2 factions who are at war. One was just to spread life and evolution throughout the galaxy while the other faction was trying to be the ruling species of the universe who lost in the war. So I'm thinking these engineers were prisoners as they don't have any sort of weapons.

Apparently you can communicate with the neomorph which kind of explains Alien 4's clone Ripley having memories. With the discovery of Microsoft able to transfer data to a molecule its not that far fetch.


Like I mentioned before you're going to watch it for the action and I love the spaceship rescue scene the best.

I'm more than excited! I loved the first Alien movies and I really think Prometheus is underrated

Prometheus earned over $400 millions in box office, and is by far the most successful movie in the entire Alien franchise. All previous movies made under $200 millions. Did you mean to say "overrated", or maybe "overhyped"? P-:

No worries, everything is recycled in crossovers these days as long as there is any money remaining to squeeze out. Even if there won't be any new "Alien vs Predator", Aliens for sure will be crossed with some other popular franchise in due time. Alien vs Marvel, most probably.

A fanfic web series base on fan theories of Prometheus and Alien Covenant.

No need for spoiler tags on this one. 8)

When the synthetic genetic coding technique has become relatively more sophisticated in due course, wonder if there'd be bugs in the codes & hence loopholes for hacking. :P

Also Doctor Who had a similar story in 1975, four years before Alien.

Doctor Who: "The Ark in Space" (1975) Future Humans living on a space station are awakened from their sleep and come under attack by an alien that produces through bonding with humans, it then rapidly ages into a monster.

Alien: (1979) Future Humans on a spaceship are awakened from their sleep, and discover eggs on a planet that contain aliens that produce through bonding with humans, one of them rapidly ages into a monster.

Going further back, you can even argue that the classic film "The Thing from Another World" (1951) also inspired Alien. As the plot is about Arctic researchers living on a secluded base in the midst of the arctic, there they discover an alien spaceship under the ice. After thawing it out, an alien escapes and bonds with their dog killing it in the process, the alien then rapidly ages into a monster and attacks the base and crew.

^ Yeah, what really makes Alien unique is essentially just Giger's designs, & even so, he'd actually long been drawing pretty similar stuff before his participation in the film - in fact, he was invited to join the production team because someone had seen his past works. lol

I just remembered other similarities. In the Doctor Who story, the Doctor defeats the alien by opening the air locks, causing the alien to be sucked into outer space. Ripley does the same thing at the end of Alien.

Another similarity, in The Thing from Another World, there's a character who sees some sort of scientific potential in the creature, and is reluctant to destroy it, betraying his friends. In Alien we have Ash, who's revealed to be a company android that has orders to keep the Alien alive as the company see potential in the creature, so he betrays the crew.

The 1st instalment is sooo being a cliché in its plot that it's even bordering a B-movie, lol if not saved by its more classy visual designs (its director wasn't a big name at the time too).

The second Instalment, Aliens (1986) has a very VERY similar plot to the classic film, "Them!" (1954) that its almost a remake.

In Aliens, Ripley and a team of commandos head to an Earth colony which is in ruins and abandoned. They find only one survivor a traumatized girl. Eventually they find the aliens responsible, and find that there's a whole nest underneath, with an alien queen. In the end Ripley and those that managed to survive destroy the nest via flamethrowers.

In "Them!" Two cops on patrol in New Mexico find a traumatized girl wandering by herself on the desert highway. After eventually finding out where she lived, the cops find her place of residence destroyed and abandoned. The nearby town has also suffered this. Eventually the cops find a underground nest of giant irradiated ants led by a queen. After surviving numerous attacks and learning about other encounters across the country , the police eventually learn that the queen's nest is in the Los Angeles sewers. At the end of the film, the National Guard is called in and the nest and queen are destroyed via flamethrowers.

So far earning only 40 million dollars.

Still a little too early though.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien:_Covenant


Quote:
Fox released Alien: Covenant in a number of international markets a week ahead of its domestic bow. It was released in 34 markets where it grossed an estimated $42 million opening at number one in 19 of them. Its overall rank for the weekend was second behind the continued run of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.[73] The top openings were witnessed in South Korea ($7.2 million), followed by the UK ($6.4 million), France ($4.5 million), Australia ($3.1 million) and Mexico ($2.5 million)

And the film won't be shown in US theatres until the 19th of May.

Its budget was 111 million dollars, so when it hits the US it might break even. But still the fact that it only achieved 40 million dollars overseas won't be seen as a good thing to the studios. Especially since their rival film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 earned 106 million in its first weekend overseas.

Unless America has a huge craving for the Alien franchise, then there's a potential that this might be the last Alien film....again.

Really the Alien franchise should have been like the Terminator franchise. Just the first two movies and that's it.

Unfortunately Hollywood always likes to make a quick buck.

I feel more sorry for Ridley Scott, as Prometheus was meant to be its own series in the same Alien universe, but of course audiences asked "Where was the Xenomorphs?", which meant that Scott had to disrupt his plans and include the Xenomorphs again.
