A new poster for ‘Alien: Covenant’ gives us another terrifying glimpse at the iconic xenomorph… and it looks as though it’s on the prowl. Clutching her favourite space rifle as she hides from the slathering alien, Daniels (played by Katherine Waterston) is definitely channelling the Ellen Ripley look. Not bad, and it’s clearly intended to remind us that this is an ‘Alien’ movie following the ‘mixed’ critical responses to ‘Prometheus’.
New footage from Alien: Covenant shown by Ridley Scott at CinemaCon in Las Vegas links up the sequel with its predecessor Prometheus.
During an interview with Fandango, Ridley Scott revealed that there’s another ‘Alien’ movie to follow the upcoming ‘Alien: Covenant’. “There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] ‘Alien’,” said Scott as he explained the chronology of all the recent and upcoming ‘Alien’ movies.
One of the most controversial movies to come out of the Toronto International Film Festival is transgender horror ‘(re)Assignment’ which has been mauled critically. The film is about a male assassin (played by Rodriguez) named Frank Kitchen who, after killing the brother of a talented surgeon known as The Doctor (Weaver), is surgically transformed into a woman after being double-crossed by gangsters. It all sounds a bit absurd and potentially offensive, with the trans community voicing their disappointment in using the life-changing operation as a gimmick for a film.
It’s no secret that ‘Prometheus’ made a major leap from Ridley Scott’s original ‘Alien’ movies… and by the end of the movie, we saw a vastly different xenomorph to those of the original film series. According to Birth.Movies.Death, a new video which appeared on the Alien Anthology Twitter account may give us some clues about the new xenomorph. Of course, the account has previously released a number of behind-the-scenes images from the upcoming ‘Alien’ movie… and now it looks as though it’s given us our first glimpse at the new xenomorph.
Ridley Scott has come a-cropper on the Australian set of ‘Alien: Covenant’, following a run-in with a forklift truck. “But Ridley took it like a man, apologises and said it was his fault and just got on with it.

A revealing new image has emerged from the set of ‘Alien: Covenant’ which depicts Katherine Waterston in her role as Daniels – the new female lead. Appearing on the official Alien Facebook page, the behind-the-scenes image gives us a glimpse of Ridley Scott’s monitor on the set of ‘Alien: Covenant’… and it looks as though things have gone sideways already for the ill-fated crew.
Danny McBride is reportedly in talks to join ‘Alien: Covenant’. According to The Wrap, the 39-year-old American actor is being courted for a role in Ridley Scott’s upcoming ‘Prometheus’ sequel, ‘Alien: Covenant’.
As ‘Alien: Covenant’ edges closers, its director Sir Ridley Scott is gradually revealing more and more about the hugely anticipated follow up to 2012′s ‘Prometheus’. The latest piece of info comes in a recent interview with the Daily Mail, where Scott talks frankly about the first film’s star Noomi Rapace. Presumably he’s talking about the female lead, as it’s believed that Michael Fassbender - arguably the best thing about ‘Prometheus’ - will return to the series as David.
Katherine Waterston has landed the lead role in Ridley Scott’s forthcoming ‘Prometheus’ sequel 'Alien: Covenant’. The 'Inherent Vice’ star will play opposite Michael Fassbender, who will be reprising his role as the android David. Filming on the movie begins in Australia in the New Year, with the movie being the first in a new trilogy which will eventually link up with Scott’s 1979 benchmark 'Alien’.
Ridley Scott has confirmed that ‘Alien: Covenant’ will be the first of three films that will then link up to the story from the original 1979 'Alien’. The second movie in his 'Prometheus’ series is in its pre-production stage in Sydney, Australia, at the moment, where Scott confirmed the plans in a press conference. Covenant will tell the story of the crew of a colony ship which discovers what it believes to be an 'uncharted paradise’ world, but is in fact a 'dark and dangerous’ place, inhabited solely by David, Michael Fassbender’s android character from the first 'Prometheus’ movie.
Just when Sir Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ has been gathering momentum and dominating the ‘Alien’ franchise headlines, Michael Biehn’s only gone and revealed some juicy details on the plot for ‘Alien 5′. Biehn, the actor who played Corporal Hicks in James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’, had a lot to say regarding ‘Alien 5′ (as per its working title), declaring it was still very much happening. Not only does this, as he previously specified, ignore ‘Alien 3′ and ‘Alien: Resurrection’, but it plays out a very different timeline whereby both Hicks and Newt survive the crash-landing in David Fincher’s ‘Alien 3′.
