‘Alien’ lovers, beware, there are potential SPOILERS AHEAD!
According to sources over at Scified, it seems that the new film ‘Alien: Covenant’ will be featuring 2 monsters similar to the Xenomorphs in the original films, not to mention some other story points that were leaked. Here’s everything they released:
“The movie will have 2 Monsters, one is new and both are different yet similar to the Xeno DNA. The NEW Monster is a New Event, so it’s nothing created before the Events of the end of the First movie…. it’s created by an event in the movie… and this New Monster is going to be based off of the Original Concept that Alien drew influence from, and this idea is something they had planned with Spaights’ Ultramorph and so Gigers Necomonicon 4 is the starting point. This Monster will be transparent like a Jelly Fish to a degree…. and it’s hinted that David plays a part in its creation.
“The movie won’t be going the route of an Alien movie, just we will see more clues and things that we can relate and make connection to the Xeno DNA and Bio-Mechanics of the Engineers. The movie will loosely touch up on themes that can connect to the Prometheus Mythos and the Bible but more in respect to the Paradise Lost version of events but again loosely.
“They won’t be going a full blown Ancient Aliens in detail on us, just we can make subtle links to themes, such as Rebellion, Order of Creation (that has multiple layers that does not start with the Engineers and does not end with David). Stealing of Forbiden Knowledge and Fire and how playing God and going against God always has dire consequences.”
It is interesting the direction they are going with the series, especially if rumors are true and Ridley Scott wants this to be a trilogy that would lead into the original film. And as I am always a fan of original concept art, I love the idea of making one of the early Xenomorphs more closely resemble the original concept art of the first film. More and more this film is piquing my interest, and I cannot believe we have to wait till May of 2017 to see how it is all going to turn out.
