So, the Alien Day live stream just concluded and it featured an amazing piece of footage from Alien: Covenant where we see Dr. Shaw putting David's head back on his body. We also see that David put Shaw into a cryo chamber and while she was asleep, he learned their ways.
We then see the Juggernaut arrive on Paradise and dock with the massive Scorponaught ship (As Big Dave and other theorized it would). We then see David prepare to unleash the weapon upon the unsuspecting Engineers below.
Indeed you also heard him say that this was exclusive footage for this event?
I got copyright strikes from uploading the VR videos.
Perhaps I could download it and send it to you?
I got it recorded, but with no sound! d'oh! I'm scared to put it on my youtube account though.
Personally, the footage felt haphazardly cut together from a bigger piece of footage, which speaks more for it being in the movie as a flashback as some leaks have suggested. On the other hand some of the scenes were weirdly shot and edited and didn't feel like ridley directed them. Probably second unit stuff they only made for promotional purposes like this. Which would confirm what some people watching the later half of this footage at the event have said 'It won't be in the theatrical release'
I recorded it and with sound, but how do I upload it? It is a .mov clip.
This was breathtaking! Will this be in the film?
The replay of the live q and a is on the Alien Universe website - including the exclusive scene.
If you click on the Alien Day tab, there is a window that expands.
All I can say right now is wow! This movie keeps looking better and better. Happy Alien Day everyone!!
Wow, David must be really pissed off for some reason since he punishes the unsuspecting down below :) By learning their ways whilst alone on the ship, has he found out something about them that aids him in his decision? What you think?
@Necronom yes I believe you are correct. Perhaps he found their plans to wipe out Earth, and since he seems to have formed a special relationship with the good Dr., I think something happens to her that he blames them for as well, leading to the desire to eliminate the hazard(s)...
Alien anthology FB just uploaded an official prologue.
We can also replay the stream now.
EDIT: The sneak peek in on youtube.
new theory time.
so i guess we would have to look at david and shaws relationship and how david may of changed while he was alone?
thought we would of got the next 30 - 60 seconds, like cinema con did
Take This.... This is the blood of our lord
What are the words David is speaking at the end (the bombardment/arrival)? I heard "despair", but couldn't quite make out the rest...
No way they would show the gory footage of the engineers dying on an open to everyone youtube stream.
Ah, Fox just released the footage officially! Thank goodness. Here it is!
that is nuts....so basically Shaw is/was not aware of what David is going to do. Also If she was in Cryo when it happened and she was not in her uniform (maybe ID tag also ) she could still be alive in cryo through out the movie. In know way I could see David purposely hurting her after seeing that.
P.S. I like her with the Long hair ;-)
also could answer the hologram question the covenant finds of her operating the juggernaut. It could have been her taking off from LV223.
Where is the planet paradise located? Is it the home planet of the engineers?
No one's really sure who this group of humanoids is yet.
They might be more like us than the Engineers. If it's not the Engineer home planet, it's probably part of a central trade route or important to their ancient past (as others suggested).
It's possible this is the planet the Engineers evolved on long ago, and this group was left to tend to the ancient garden.
Like Shaw like she is in this clip. Longer hair and not as hysterical as in Prometheus. In this short clip, there is much more feelings built into it than whole of Prometheus. Guess it is the quality of the script/writers and dialogue.
@necronom yep...already this movie has more feeling and true emotions than Prometheus did, and that's just the supplemental material! GREAT script/writing combined with great acting...should be a monster (get it?) movie!
I find it interesting that David said, "We were finally going to meet our creator." Does he truly see the Engineers as his creator, and not Peter Weyland?
Starlogger Yes, very easy on the eyes. That brief scene with her and David was pretty heavy and changed my mind- I used to hate her with a passion!
Seems he despised Weyand. With good reason probably. I guess he feels he has a lot in common with Shaw. Kinda feels like they're a couple :)
