Welcome to the SPOILER THREAD where spoilers can be read unmarked. So unless you want to prove to the rest of the world here you can't read, please refrain from using spoiler tags.
Fans of the Alien series have never been more united by the feeling of apathy since the news of this film’s development have hit day one. So what’s there to say about this series at this point? I mean, really. You’ll never get anything as good as the first two, and at this point it’s been a consistent serving of sloppy seconds. Sloppy. Seconds. When Prometheus is supposedly the third best the bar is very low. Loooooooow. But at least we got The Fassbender as David and Noomi Rapace giving the greatest abortion scene put to the sliver screen (I guess).
Ridley Scott strikes again to muddle the Alien mythos with another story in the Alien universe. This time a sequel to the prequel to the original Alien film. The crew of The Covenant unknowingly land on the Engineer’s home planet to colonize, but instead find themselves in the world’s worst game of hide and seek. The Prometheus sequel is set to return to scares and muddy whatever was set up in the film prior. Still better than the Alien vs Predator films, though.
Escaping fantastic beasts
Beware, you might be seeing double.
I’d do the rest but they’re all expendable and not worth my time. Plus, I’m not smart enough to work in a Dr. Manhattan joke for Billy Crudup.
Will it have scientists as dumb as the 2 morons in Prometheus?
do we know for sure that it will explicitly tie into exodus?
Giant albino jesus is still a thing.
It really is going to be about space Jesus again.
Which one is Judah??
PS just make a different sci-fi movie
Dear Ridley Scott,
Please stop trying to shoehorn Space Jesus into Alien. Also, please stop trying to recreate the success of the original by literally recreating pieces of the original.
Every Alien Fan
This looks like another flop in the series, but honestly nothing can possibly be worse than Prometheus.
Getting hyped for a new Alien movie after Prometheus happened
what are ya doing, brehs
I've watched every single Alien movie in existence and I'm still not sure what a space jockey is lol
Can't fucking wait for this! I hated Prometheus when I saw it opening night but it's aged like a fine wine and now stands as one of my favorite science-fiction films ever made.
Hi, I’m John Milton and I’ve come to the future to ask all of western society to stop diluting my poem. Also, I---what??
Oh hey John Milton, I’m just crashing in to ask if anyone making bad sci-fi movies or Biblical epics even read your poem or the actual Bible. I’m just wondering because I’d be really bummed if I had to witness another Prometheus or Exodus: Gods and Kings being based off those works, ya know? Ya know, Ridley? Ya know?
