David has been a very naughty android…
As part of the Alien Day celebrations yesterday Fox released this short that links Prometheus to Covenant.
That ties together some of the images that have come out in recent months – including these leaked from the set last year. If you care at all about spoilers don’t click that.
Also part of Alien Day: Adam Savage and the Tested team got to visit the set during production, and finally got to share the footage.
Fox has also been dropping stills left and right in the past couple of weeks. Including a look at the newest member of the alien clan: the neomorph. We got a quick look at this critter at the end of Prometheus. They’re going to be all over Covenant.
It looks a little like a reversed goblin shark, and there’s a reason for that: Ridley Scott. Screenwriter John Logan talked a bit about where the inspiration for the new aliens came from with Empire: “Some of those nature videos are so stomach-churning that they don’t pay me enough to watch them, but Ridley will see something to do with insects swarming, for example, which eventually finds its way into a movie. Usually there’s some sort of grotesqueness we find interesting.”
There’s a lot of previews being dropped – the same level of marketing that drove the hype for Prometheus. Hopefully this one will actually live up to it.
