    Teaser to the first trailer has arrived:



    Full trailer should be up in time for Christmas! (which is a really strange day to release it, I think...I mean, what movie is it going to air in front of?)

    Ladies and Gentlemen: Trailer #1



    Actually, I think this is a "Red Band" trailer, so just warning - it's got "language" and...a lot of blood. Which would explain why they're not attaching this to a movie this weekend, now that I think about it...I guess they wanted to reveal this directly to the fans on the internet first.

    12/25: Now that's what I call an Alien movie! The trailer is a welcome relief. Looks leaps and bounds better than Prometheus. Some of that bio-weapon is still in play, Facehugger, Xenomorph, and that infected guy (whew, that's going to be killer scene).

    Waterson revealed her character is the chief terraformist.

    A summary from a press event.

    3 more stills released.

    Waterson video released


    1/3: There will be a VR experience for Covenant.

    1/5: Trevante Rhodes joined Predator cast.

    1/6: Keegan-Michael Key in final negotiations to join Predator.

    1/8: Must film article from USA Today has a new still of Waterson.

    1/12: Still of Fassbender and Ejogo on Covenant from EMPIRE Dec. Issue.

    An official sequel of Covenant, "Alien: Covenant 2" is being offered for pre-order by Titan Books. 304 pages and set for a September 26 release, here.

    1/22: Filming for Predator reported to start February 20, 2017.

    1/23: It's been reported Thomas Jane joined the Predator cast. :D

    1/24: Blomkamp tweeted the odds of his Alien 5 getting made are "slim." Dang.

    1/25: Jacob Tremblay joins Predator cast.

    The prologue is very underwhelming. Feels like casting rehearsal.

    New still from EMPIRE of crew stepping foot on planet.

    Feels like the one happy moment before the carnage. ;)

    Not really. I mean, yes, they are trying to imitate that famous scene from the original, but it's a very mediocre attempt at best. Very robotic and scripted acting, weird editing, too long and no action. Most people online and even fans who saw it earlier are disappointed and I am too. The previous clips were a lot better.

    Eh, it's just viral marketing. I'm still waiting for the next official trailer.

    Only thing I'm wondering is why James Franco's character looks like death warmed over. Are they somehow being poisoned...BEFORE they get to the planet?

    It doesn't seem like a good idea to go into hypersleep when you're sick or whatever the case may be.

    Okay, when I said "Next trailer hits Thursday", I obviously meant "Tuesday". ;)

    What can I say about the actual trailer? That was awesome!!!
