    Prometheus and Alien covenant don't seem to connect much - They even end up on some different planet! No explaniation by Ridley scott why he called the people there Engineers when they are not and don't even look like them! The whole thing was not thought through and people were made to expect answers in Alien covenant with so much hype and then they put 2 fingers up to the fans! Its come to the stage where the Xenomorph is not even scary at all. Scotts original instinct was right to give the franchise a new lease of life by introducing Engineers and so you expected Gigers ideas to be prominant but we got ancient Roman or Greek culture!

  • Georgios Papadopoulos

    No binary logic no sattelites no computing no telecommunications that's why they had to come and go and that's why the engineers were hailing David and the death cargo, they hadn't heard from the LV-426 for thousands of years and thought the pilot was one of them. That's why maybe their ships record everything in 3D, because they had to go back to their planet to give the information of what they were doing 'out there'. David found their weak point and destroyed them.

    absolutely tragic editing process in this film - once again, why the f**k did they cut this from the final version???! unbelievable, the exploration of the Engineer planet/Paradise, as well as any information relevant to the engineers, their endeavours, and their civilisations, was primarily what I was most looking forward to in this film - also what the film was primed to develop and portray. tragically, Scott made huge editing and script revisions, listening to a body of the fanbase and bringing back more of the Xenomorph storyline; after having introduced us to a new world of the Alien universe. tragic blow to the prequel trilogy, it's now a mess, flip-flopping all-over the place, even though I still loved Convenant.
    And, I would have liked any combination of the 'Giger-esque' architecture with the more Greco-Roman designs and architecture together, both looked amazing. sigh, what a let down. all would be redeemed if they released an unedited version in the Blu-ray package, but from what I'm hearing, that's also out?

    We are going to see what David has done to Shaw in the next film.
    The engineers are going to return to the covenant planet, David has buried the memory of Shaw, what is left of her is a hybrid of alien human and she's going to be alive.

    She is going to be the brain, the collective consciousness of all the aliens and the engineers don't have the heart to kill it. They will come to worship or at least respect what she is.

    She is going to be a queen of sorts that all knowledge is kept within of the species.

    My wife and I liked Alien Covenant. But we agree with you completely. Ridley Scott could have really really hit it out of the park if he had put so much more in to it.

    And not nearly as much about the David's psychotic pets! Scott could have went sooooooo in depth about the engineers city. There culture.


    And still kept some of the stuff about the Aliens. But not make the entire movie about them!!

    Fox Reassessing Ridley Scott’s Planned ‘Alien’ Movies
    Kevin Jagernauth July 21, 2017 10:17 am News theplaylist.net



    It’s been a summer of franchises that might have made okay money (largely thanks to international ticket sales) but left audiences disappointed.


    “Transformers: The Last Knight,” “The Mummy,” and “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” all fall into that category, but “Alien: Covenant” is its own special thing.



    Not only was the sequel to “Prometheus“/prequel to “Alien” a box office disappointment (it earned nearly $200 million less than its predecessor worldwide), but it arguably severely damaged the brand.



    Ridley Scott spent the press tour promising at least two more followups, and boldly stated the next film would be in front of cameras within 14 months. However, that may not be happening.



    THR reveals that Fox is going to “reassess” what they’re doing with Scott’s two planned “Alien” movies.





    At the moment, the director is shooting “All The Money In The World” which he is racing to complete in time for the awards season, and after that, he’s apparently expected to film the adaptation of Don Winslow‘s drug drama “The Cartel.”





    If that’s the case, it certainly means the “Alien” franchise is going to be on ice for a while, and by the sounds of it, Fox is considering whether or not they want to proceed with the rest of the narrative Scott has planned out.





    Certainly, the “Alien” franchise isn’t going to hibernate.





    It’s far too valuable for them to leave to the side, but I bet Neill Blomkamp‘s scrapped “Alien” movie is looking more enticing with each passing day.





    It would certainly be a way to revive the franchise and bring Sigourney Weaver‘s Ripley back to the big screen.



    That alone would restore the excitement to the series that seems to have faded.

    I loved Prometheus, have watched it around 15 times, and will probably watch it another 20. Also loved Covenant and will also watch it multiple times as well.  Ridley has deserved the respect to go the in direction he wants. The story line  may not add up now but will finish with a bang. How many times have we watched TV/Movie series that have been awsome in the middle  but end average ?

  • Chris F

    Do you think that Ridley and company essentially cut out all of the engineer sequences and plot threads due to the following things? 1. The backlash that some Alien purists didn't want a film centered in the Alien universe, but rather another direct tie in to Alien? 2. The creative team deciding that their budget was 30-35 million dollars less than Prometheus and figured they could get back to their horror roots and write off an engineer centric world?

  • Rhensel88

    What part of the whole those people were not engineers do you not understand??? I promise you that they are two different species and that is the direction the franchise will go. The beings we saw in the movie worshiped the engineers as gods. They looked different because they were different. It's called reading between the lines.

  • pplr1
    pplr1 4 days ago

    I don't care much either way in terms of romanesque or Giger-eque but I am one of the people who agreed this was a major wasted opportunity to explore more of the engineers-which is what I expected and hoped for from a sequel to Prometheus.

    Design continuity makes sense for movies but it's not necessary for me. I would rather something different anyway! It's like saying our buildings should look closely related to a B-2 stealth bomber. The science for buildings is very different than the science for war machines.

  • Grant Saunders
    Grant Saunders 4 days ago

    I'm pretty sure it was an outpost of the engineers with a race they engineered. The population worshiped the engineers as gods. I think the original idea was to make it the engineers home world, but clearly it isn't. They look nothing like engineers, their architecture is greek/ roman. This is a civilization that is behind humans.

  • Destiny Captain

    Some of the guys that did artwork for AC have made comments to the effect that there was some kind of back and forth with legal and the Giger estate. The change in look may be a result of this. They may have simply decided to go in a less actionable direction. Both the AVP Galaxy Podcast and The Perfect Organism Podcast have interviews to this effect.

    Seems very clear that a last minute decision was made in production that this was not to be the Engineers home world. Given the way Covenant ended, I suspect we may be headed there now (or eventually).

    After highly anticipating this film since it was announced, and then having that anticipation building to a fever pitch from Christmas to May 19. Seeing the final product left me with a sour feeling about all news related to the Alien franchise. I remember seeing Life and thinking "this will tide me over til AC comes out". If I only new then that I would be more entertained by that movie than AC. Any new news has me like "meh". "Coulda, shoulda, woulda". Well at least we got OATS and a pissed off Neil Bloomkamp out of the deal...

    The Roman aspect of the Engineers was a crock of shit. They should have gone with, and only with, the more Giger-esque architecture.

    Just because of the way they were dressed and the lack of evident technology, I assumed Paradise was not the actual home world. I assumed it was more like an Amish community, and David used it as a place to begin experiment without them being able to call for help.

      I think as a storyline movie goers never wanted to see Shaw, being a good natured character, meet a gruesome end like they took in Covenant. Even if they did do that, the only way I could see them redeeming David is if we find out that the engineers killed her and David, who was in love with her, in a moment of rage and fury unleashes the goo. Feeling unsatisfied with that vengeance, he goes on to figure out a way to not only erase them but their own creations, hence his efforts to make the xenos. Instead, it looks like we got just a generic evil robot.

    It was an apology film, and unfortunately Ridley crammed too much in at once to try and keep everyone happy, and he screwed it up because of that. Blomkamp needs to be given the chance to freshen it up. The stuff that is coming out of Oats Studio is amazing, and he's ramming it down Fox's throat as proof right now. It's like " fuck you for cancelling my Alien movie bitches"! And his last 3 shorts are better than Covenant, fact!

      Well its not that simple. The plot holes and weak characters WERE there. They were real issues holding prometheus back. So complaining about it IS the right thing to do. "The lack of alien" argument though is absolute horseshit, the movie is called prometheus not "alien returns" or whatever. I mostly heard people with legit complaint about the script, but maybe fox and ridley heard the "wrong" complaints? maybe test audiences (problably mostly youngish boys, the worst group of people (my people sadface) that exists) went on and on about "whoot baut my alieeenz in mah alienz movah!!!!". Or fox and ridley didnt even bother checking, assumed the worst, and just went with the easy solution and brought back the alien.


  • Martin Chládek

    This is *NOT* the Engineer planet and they are *NOT* the Engineers, so we aren't getting any of this stuff, because it would get the audience confused. It had to look primitive, so it would be more obvious that it's just a colony. I think they will use these ideas in the Alien Awakening for the more detail story about the real Engineers. Covenant was about David, that's why there was so little about them and were killed in 2 minute long scene. So please, *STOP* calling it Engineer planet ffs.

    • Kds Cool
      Kds Cool 5 days ago

      It's Engineer's planet and they are engineers, it was confirmed many times by Ridley and writers before and after Covenant's release, including that script page, which confirms it once again. Ridley doesn't have mysterious master plan, it exists as it is. This is why this movie is a mess. Ridley didn't have a plan how to continue the story before Prometheus and he didn't have a plan before Covenant.


    • czar225

    • Martin Chládek
      Martin Chládek 6 days ago

      CrossCynical Yes, that was the "early stage" of production of the Covenant, then they changed the story to a more Alien kind of movie and postponded the more detailed Engineers story to Awakening. Again, this was not the Engineers planet so all those cool buildings and themes had to be changed to a more basic form to fit the story.


    • CrossCynical
      CrossCynical 6 days ago

      I do recall Ridley Scott specifically stating that the planet in this movie was the engineer's homeworld. However, I don't know if that was only true only during early filming when it was going to be Paradise/Paradise Lost and before the decision to go with what they wound up with in Alien Covenant.

    I think there is just one exciting thing that Prometheus had started which is: Every culture have their own understanding of what the Engineers are about ....for me they more look like Jews other than Romans even the hoods they are wearing it is more reminding me of the Jews.... even the architecture it looks to me like a Jewish civilization.... and that is they were stranded in a planet where they were promised to get back to their promised land which is earth and the returning of the juggernaut is like returning of hope to them that is why they gathered around it hailing for the return......

They have to be qualified.

    I know many don't like Alien vs Predator 1 (AVP) but I thought that movie manage to integrate both and have exploration. Thing that Alien Covenant had problems with Alien and Engineers. They could have starting with a longer better Engineers story and then have Alien stuff in the right places and the right way. Like being stalked from the shadows while exploring, Alien images on the walls and so on. Both group of fans could have liked the same scenes for different reasons.

    My best guess as to why Ridley would leave out all that amazing design work that's similar to what we saw in Prometheus is because the civilization in Covenant are not the same race of Engineers from Prometheus.
    The Prometheus Engineer eyes were completely black, their skin was almost translucent white and they wore those Geiger bodysuits.
    I don't see much overlap between the Engineers from both films outside of the wearing similar robes (like what we saw at the start of Prometheus) and having the same space craft.
    It seemed odd to me that they recorded things on paper in Covenant when we saw nothing non- technological like that on the Planet in Prometheus.

    It wasn't just that they didn't explore the engineer world it was they made them looked dumb. Why would they all be there at the square. Movie would of been better if a couple engineer survived the holocaust cause they were outside the city. Their goal would be same as the humans and tryinging to get off planet. Most of them get killed trying to reach the communications room by the time humans arrive. Some of the covenent are killed by surviving engineers cause they think it was humans who attacked them.David take a them to city. After seeing the city the crew ask about the engineers. Movie city plot and ending stays the same. After credit we get a camera pan to the planet where the last engineer makes it to communications room and telling the actual homeworld about the humans who attacked their colony.

    I believe they cut these aspects of the film b/c they changed the story that David & Dr Shaw arrived at the Engineers Home world. I believe that the giant people we saw were another experimental race created by the Engineers. This is why their city was more primitive and focused around the area where the Engineers originally landed. This is also why they didn't look exactly like the Engineers themselves. Everyone gathered on that docking platform b/c they thought they were meeting their makers, who must of took off long ago with a promise to return. These early concepts of a Giger-esc world, would of only worked if they were actually on the Engineers Home Planet.

    Ridley fucking over the other creatives that were involved. Ridley is editing history to turn alien into a beloved franchise into a pet project to convey his beliefs to people. By systematically negating the efforts of the other artists.

    Why in the world would they not put this in the theatrical release? This scene could have actually MADE the movie. It's Ridley Scott's fault for holding back from the fans that ticket sales were low.

    Seems like someone wrote a good story for Alien Covenant and they started making a good film but then changed their minds, cancelled everything and gave us the weak slop of a movie we got.

    As someone who actual has Giger's work to call this stuff Giger-esque is stupid. It weak attempt at mimicry and I get why tehy cut it because it doesnt look nearly as good as his stuff and the space jockey biomechanical body didnt even have legs, it literally melded with the fucking ship. Sure them exploring the world be interesting but it the same issue with Prometheus when you had these scientists not bothering to investigate the god damn world they on and not act like rational explorers. Both films have had characters that are just filled with woeful irrationality. Alien on the other hand had characters that acted like actual people.

      They probably have to call it Giger-esque (As a side note, wouldn't Gigerian be a much better term?) because Giger isn't actually involve in these movies anymore. It's Giger-esque precisely because they're trying to mimic his work while still creating new things rather than using his already existing works.

    I am confused, the change in the script regarding the city architecture may indicates that those well.. not Engineers but humanoids, but David dialogue about them where he considered them as the Engineers!! So again I am confused!!

    It's clear that they cut all the interesting engineer lore in favor of more xenomorph focused story. Very unfortunate that they bent the knee and focused on xenos instead of continuing the story that was set up by the first film.
