Ridley Scott says ALIEN: AWAKENING is a Prequel to COVENANT

  • Added:  5 months ago
  • It really does look like Ridley Scott is determined to spend the rest of his days making ALIEN films...and I am in no way against it. However, the newly announced ALIEN: AWAKENING, which will serve as a prequel in the PROMETHEUS trilogy of films, is an odd way of going about things. Though we'll have to wait and see what Mr. Scott does with the Engineers, humans, and Xenomorphs in that film.

    I actually prefer Scott's vision over Cameron's contribution. Cameron took the franchise more in the direction of a creature feature by having multiple aliens, a queen, etc.
    With Prometheus Scott brought the franchise back to a Sci-Fi horror. If anyone is being honest the franchise went the same way as Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street did. Each movie got more and more rediculous as it tried to follow the formula.

    Prometheus really brought a unique perspective on the franchise that I appreciate, which may be why Scott abandoned the franchise. Movie executives may have wanted it to go in the direction Cameron went and Scott wanted to go in the direction of Prometheus.

    Time does move faster as you age. I was born in 79, the year of the Alien. My guess is that the Alien franchise will continue so long as movies are still being made. Every ones gotten their hands on the creature , either though video games or comic books, and someday somebody is going to have to carry on the torch. I look forward to the experience of future theatrics.

    I think there should be some flashbacks mixed in to clarify David's intentions... did Shaw die or was she killed?
    The engineers we saw in Covenant had a different look, less attractive and etherial; were they primitive elder engineers?
    The mystery doesn't have to all be solved at once, but there are certain answers needed as staples to the continuation of the story as a whole.

    There were scenes cut that shouldn't of been and tacky for movie clichés of floating face of dull repetition as an attempt to make up for the lack of aliens in Prometheus... letting the studio interfere because they want to please the audience usually ends up as stink bombs dropped in a well thought out film layered with tension and fear of the unknown… Drop the floating faces!
    The core actions/horror scenes are cheapened by scenes with characters we don't know or care about being killed in slasher clichés; there's nothing wrong with a good slasher film, but this is not a slasher film.
    After the first attack & explosion (👏 actress from Your Next & The Sacrament) the movie ran hot and cold.

    Bring the tension, lore, snowballing of terror, and tell the studios to piss off... dig into your own pockets Sir Scott, if you want to do this right follow your gut... cutting character development equals the audience being less invested & cutting scenes connected to key plot points isn't mysterious, it's frustrating.

    The studios and the fans need to let the professionals work together and you either like what they put out or you don't; trying to please an audience doesn't create anything except second guesses.

    I hope we see a happy medium between Prometheus and Covenant based on the writers' and directors' vision, not the studio wants, or the fans expect.

    The problem with the fact that David made the Xenomorph upset us because... well we know that David is pretty much an a**hole by this point and with that we are mad it's the creator, David.

    So could be said about the engineer that create life at the beginning of Prometheous. We assume that they are good, but do we know them. The fine line between us knowing and not knowing will either make us or break us. A quote from LOK:SR "You may uncover your past but you know nothinh of it" - Kain

    If awaking is in fact a prequel to covenent then by all means I welcome it. Covenent opens far more question then answered. And those question needs to be answered.

    Changing topic, one could say that that this is a bait of sort but this could be an artistic take on unraveling the mystery.

    I think we need to find our feet within the Alien Universe once more, before we set off again. A Good Idea would be to try a no-brainer approach to the storylines first and polish them up into an Alien Movie we can all enjoy. How about ALIENS: The Battle for Hadleys Hope put to screen. Treat it as an exercise of Futility. If we can pull off the basics, then we should be able to do it again.

    When i watched Avatar again yesterday i wished James Cameron could make another. Out of the now 6 alien movies, we only really have one where they really put up a fight, with guns blazing and all, knowing somewhat what they were up against. There can be suspense, depth and surprises in action as well. I miss some grandness, which the first movie also had with it being a gigantic ship. I miss some other music like in Aliens. Generally just one where they know more.. not 1 or none knowing.
    1 - They didn't know, no weapons.
    2 - Ripley knew, Marines knew some but were arrogant.
    3 - Ripley knew, They didn't know much - no weapons
    4 - Arrogant, not really any weapons (but also be stupid with acid in space ship)
    5 - They didn't know, no real weapons.
    6 - They didn't know, no real weapons.. tho so glad seeing they took a long.

  • Thomas SK

    Considering how many allusions to mysticism there are in Prometheus (including the fact that Scott confirmed that Jesus was an "engineer"...), I personally think that Ridley Scott's "renewed love for the Alien franchise" comes from this whole engineer creating humans thing.
    It's some kind of idea to expand the Alien universe without creating a new saga.
    He must be an adept of "panspermia", meaning the theory that life was injected into earth, came from somewhere else, and did not appear down here.

  • Sam Mazensky
    Sam Mazensky 2 months ago

    If these are "His twilight years" then I hope he's aware of the complaints, and is perhaps driving at something that could make the corpse of the space jockey terrifying, and somehow connected back to the mystique that surrounded the original Xenomorph.

    The most important new information that we've *seen* of Shaw, is her re-attaching David's head. Going back to "Shaw Based Advertising". there's a promo for Prometheus featuring her, being scanned by Yutani technology, before going on a mission for the Weyland company. The Covenant, work for Weyland-Yutani. The technology Yutani provides in the promo is "visual polygraph" technology, being in a message from Shaw to Weyland.

    Not only could the Covenant promo put his "brain" in question since he's synthetic, but the only *other Engineer* everyone seems to have forgotten from the Prometheus trip: David saw one who was decapitated by a door, and survived while wearing a helmet that Shaw removes in order to get information from what might have been a severed head. She had faith in a severed head, that still showed signs of life. It may be THAT SIMPLE.

    Given that "MUTHUR" is a computer that makes it's first appearance in COVENANT, as opposed to Prometheus, it's seeming ability to recognize David(?), and the Weyland Yutani "W and Y" logos (alarmingly similar to the volkswagen logo) all over the ship could suggest that Ridley has been trying to build towards something

    Part of this story so far is terrifying, but I don't think it's the right part, as far as the way he might be planning on telling it.

  • Jack Bonar

    I really hope Scott isn't keeping all his ideas to himself and that he's sharing them with other people because I really want to see all of the movies he has in mind get made and I'm just afraid he won't be able to do them all being currently 79 years old. I'd like it if he lived forever and never gave up control of his universe again, as I could watch an infinite amount of movies set in this universe, but unfortunately that cannot happen.

    There will be a total of 4 movies as part of the lead-up to the events of Alien, not 3 as you described. Also, I'm pretty certain that Awakening was one of the numerous working titles for what would eventually be called Covenant after they abandoned the Paradise/Alien: Paradise titles. I wouldn't expect the timeline of the remaining prequels to jump out of chronological order. Ridley could've very well been confused about his own projects. It wouldn't be the first time he flubbed incorrect information in an interview

This is what happens when u get a old senile ass man making movies. The next one should be the last prequal to Alien 1979 and at the end introduce a young Ripley sleeping in her pod on board The Nostromo and then it ends. If he wants to expand and make more alien movies then he needs to start after Alien Resurrection.

    All these movies are fine but I just want Aliens Colonial Marines 2 or something like it and Alien Isolation 2. ACM should have been made faster than it was and AI should have had a better marketing campain. The gaming industry should not penalize it's true franchise fans from its own business mistakes by not making sequels to those games. They should learn, adapt, and change things the next time around. Study what makes certain games sell more copies and do the same even if it makes Aliens games even more Call of Duty like. Millions of COD gamers interests are more important than 20,000 picky, ignorant, and complaining gamers that try to ruin the future games from the very game they take the time to comment on.

    Awakening will explain what happened between David and Shawn, why David killed all Engineers, why David turned to be so dark, etc. The way Scott tells the story has no problem. He tells the audience what happened first (Prometheus and Covenant). Then explain why this is happening (awakening). This trilogy is extremely profound, all characters, philosophical and theological story consistency, even details are thoroughly considered. I'm not surprised at all he put the sequence like this. As a matter of fact, I'm very excited that he will shoot a movie so that all the questions I had over the years can be explained.

  • Andrew Basile
    Andrew Basile 2 months ago

    I agree that this shit is more that convoluted and that Ridley Scott seems to me making it up as he goes along with no consistent story arc. He seems to keep backtracking but is doing it in a sloppy way. If "Awakening" covers the 10 year period between Prometheus and Covenant and explains how and why David decides to kill Shaw and create the Xenomorph then it will be a welcome addition to the franchise and more importantly, the story line. It would also help if he brings some clarity to who the Engineers are and why they created humans. One thought that I occurred to me is that perhaps David did not kill Shaw. It is possible that in their crash landing Shaw is injured or dies. Since David loves Shaw could he have manipulated her body to produce what he considers his children who are perfect or on their way to being perfect. It's obvious in Covenant that the Aliens have an allegiance to David, they don't try to attack or kill him. Could he have created them because he wants them to wipe out anything humanoid? I would welcome a prequel that would help explain the gaping holes that are making this franchise look like Swiss Cheese.

  • Danimation

    I get a George Lucas/Star Wars Prequel Trilogy vibe from Scott revisiting Alien. GL wanted to make Star Wars something more serious and deeper than it ever was, mirroring the Prequel Trilogy with the GW Bush administration, when the Original Trilogy was rather very, very simple. Alien was simple as hell, and now has become much deeper and bigger than it ever was imagined. The difference is Scott is a much better director than GL, but not as strong as a storyteller.

    The way I see it we'll always have the first 2 Alien movies personally I enjoy Alien 3 too but I know that's an unpopular opinion. So I'm totally OK with letting Riley Scott do his thing. For those that are saying they're ruining the franchise need to open their eyes because Alien in my opinion hasn't been good since Alien 3. Even the games have been meh A:CM was terrible fan fiction so much so that it's no longer cannon the last AVP was just ok. Alien Isolation is an exception and was great but it didn't do anything new. Ridley Scott isn't going to ruin a franchise that's already ruined and honestly so far I'm enjoying what he's doing. And all of this is coming from a die hard Alien fan I can quote all the movies and games all day long even the bad ones.

    Um, the fact that it is intriguing and alluring and leaving questions unanswered is precisely why we're all hyping the continuation. And it's precisely why you're able to perpetuate the continuation of the franchise. Enjoy the ride and let the writers do their part. And remember, once it's all explained, we have much less to come back for other than the action of it all (which I, for one, am not nearly as drawn to).

    Covenant- Now about the new covenant crew, and aftermath of the engineer's demise. (With David being on the planet) (This is after watching the film (Covenant).
    Then we get a fourth film, maybe the fifth taking place after covenant, and ultimately leading up to the first alien.

    Ridley should've just made a proper Prometheus 2 about the journey of Shaw and David to the engineers planet. instead he is doing a half baked Prometheus and alien mixture. It feels like they will go from movie to movie with the story like in the 80ies and 90ies, resulting in a movie universe that is inconsistent. Covenant totally feels like it was made to quiet down the haters of Prometheus to give them another movie where people are running around like idiots because they are hunted by xenomorphs. But I also liked the movie, David's storyline is very interesting and they should've made the movie about him and the engineers. let's see what's going to happen next. hopefully we don't have to wait another 5 years...

    pallafox 3 months ago

    The problem with this is that the order of its releases are not in favour with the trilogy's chronological narrative but to the demand of getting the alien franchise back to what Scott thinks is relevant. A lot of people hated prometheus, I personally liked it minus the writing. The themes the story and the backdrop was a great set up exploring the alien lore. But all of that was thrown out of the window in favour of getting to that moment in which actual xenomorphs were created. The film ends with a journey towards the next era that could potentially lead to 1979 Alien. NOW why in the world do we need to go back and explore the events that took place before landing to paradise and after Promotheus? is it such a demand now after seeing Covenant? no? the movie clearly throws all of that away to put xenomorphs in right away, is it going to further detail David's cause and actions? No, he's clearly made that point in the end that he wants to ascend as the new creator and immortal icon of the universe. whatever it is he discovers in that ship prior to kiling the engineers or even Shaw's desire to understand their decision to eliminate the human race wouldn't matter any longer because we've now tackled the theme of creationism. So I'm confused. Scott is caught in the middle of several revisions that it completely ruined the franchise's potential to detail a beautiful story about life cycle in the univese, but instead we get this clusterfuck of a tale that leads to nothing at the moment. I like how prometheus set the events that led us to think that humans depended on its creator and its reflection on relgion wanting to know more of its origin. With Prometheus, lets just play God and take it from there.
