    Yeah we have already seen Alien, seems more like a reboot of that series than what was started in Prometheus.

    I just remembered watching a cartoon as a kid and seeing in the cartoon that had one of the characters watching TV and it was showing Aliens where riply is facing against a xenomorph and it had its mouth tongue pop out and within in it another one pops out and then another one pops out of that one lol. Anyone know what show that was, I was thinking maybe a duck tales episode but it could of been the other ones during the afternoon block in the late 80s or early 90s.

    Man I vaguely remember this too, but can't remember which show it was. Haha.

    For some reason, tiny toon adventures popped in to my head, but Google didn't produce anything.

    I know there's a sequence in Animaniacs that features a xenomorph, but I don't think that's what you're referring to. I can vaguely remember watching the multi-mouthed alien somewhere, too.

    God dammit. Now I'm obsessing about it.

    Animaniacs did that bit, so did Tiny Toons IIRC.

    Hell, all the Spielberg cartoons pulled a gag like that at some point, I think.

    The Simpsons had some great ones, Willy crawling through the air ducts but something is stalking him, the alien turns out to be Bart's dog.

    I believe that was an episode of Gargoyles. The teen gargoyles were watching a random channel on TV and it was a loose interpretation of Vasquez (she wore a red bandanna). The alien hopped out in front of her and did that multiple mouths thing and then she shot it....... why I remember that, I don't know.

    Late to the party but finally bothered to watch the trailer and.... couldn't care less about the Xenomorph stuff. Been there, done that.

    Even though Prometheus itself was a cinematic trainwreck and little more than a glorified, feature-length, teaser trailer for a sequel. It still had a lot of good ideas & concepts behind it and i was hoping they'd continue where they left off with the engineer stuff. Looks like they've abandoned ship on all that and gone back to stale Xenomorphs. Shame.

    Prometheus sucked and underperformed because it was an incompetent movie, not because of the concepts behind it. It had a lot of promise which i hoped would be redeemed with a proper follow up and, not a tired Aliens retread.

    They are never going to go I to the Engineers so you guys might as well give up hope on that.

    I mean with how Prometheus ended, it seemed like they were setting up to explain more about the Engineers in a sequel. Instead... we just get Totally Not Alien.

    Yea, it's Fox they are going to go with easy. Xenomorphs are easy.

    The bigger question is why is Keegan Michael Key in a Predator movie?

    Is Liam Neesons gonna make a cameo?

    This looks like an actual alien film so I might give a try as long as that Damon Lindelof isn't involved. Prometheus trailers looked cool too but I ended up hating that film so I can't get too excited about this.

    Predator always had weird as fuck people show up in the cast. Remember Adrien Brody? When he was cast everyone was like: "Uhhh... ok?"

    Anyways, have almost 5 minutes of Alien: Covenant.

    With no humans under 100kg. No heroines or dramatic bullshit. Two fictional alien species fighting to the death in space doesn't need some clownshoe attempt at the best actor nomination at the Oscars.

    Remember Lawrence Fishburn in Predators? He legit thought any of that was a good idea.

    Also you guys can suck it with your swagneto fanboism, this the same nigga that shat the bed with assassins creed. Fuck David.

    Weaver is 100 years old, let her retire in dignity, we remember alien3 and resurrecrion. Bitch ain't even in the new movies but she always getting name dropped now like she gonna turn water into wine with these dumbshit movies. That would take Arnie.

    He's apparently actually a well educated and practiced actor, he just happened to go towards comedy.

    I remember being shocked to learn that he was the Sargent in Tom Cruise's edge of tomorrow!

    I had no clue it was him! He totally vanished into the role. The mark of a great actor.

    Not impressed. Just looks like the same thing we've seen a hundred times already. Xenomorphs are scary, Xenomorphs attack, Oh nooooss, etc.

    Hoping the movie has more substance to it than that. And that all the engineer/homeworld stuff Prometheus attempted to build upon, wasn't dropped completely to go back to the "safe option". AKA: Xenos, facehuggers, more Xenos, etc.

    I'm also seriously hoping that is NOT the engineer homeworld and, that they are all dead, or have evacuated the planet eons ago. Because then the massive cock-block that was Prometheus will be complete and there won't be any answers for sure. As if Prometheus wasn't already a cinematic waste of time as it is.
  • locoghoullocoghoul Fuck Chun Joined: Posts: 3,704
    it looks to me that Scott is trying to give away the "plan" behind the Engineers (my version at least): they start out life on planets (as seen from first Prometheus scene), then they check to see how it has developed. If they read Reddit or SRK yeah they bring out the Xenomorphs to Ctrl+X that shit. The planet they found looked like it would something habitable for human beings but it is desolated. You find an Engineer ship with alien eggs...
    My bet is that a 3rd movie will fully disclose all the remaining details. Also some ppl are arguing that David is the one that makes the Xenomorphs somehow.

    This is still a prequel to the original Aliens so of course we're going to see the same type of xenomorphs we've seen before, with slight differences. They'll also introduce the runner Alien, that's the cat like Xenomorph in Alien3 that's slighter thinner but much faster than the regular Xenomorph, and a new Xenomorph with longer fingers, not exactly much of a variation for these two but there's another type that we don't know too much about that burst out of the hosts mouth, in one particular scene when this happens the android David looks on in awe/admiration as it kills a crew member by ejecting out of his/her mouth. This version of David is supposed to be an updated less evil version of the David we saw in Prometheus. I know this android has different name I just forgot what it was.

    The only problem I have with this is the CGI, it looks really outdated. I really hope it looks a lot better when it's released. They need to go back to using practical effects. One reason Alien3 flopped was because the CGI looked like garbage.

    .... Oh, I forgot to mention the giant king Alien is also in this, and if you look closely in the trailer I think we finally get to see the Engineers planet, which isn't the planet they're currently on, maybe its a flashback scene. My theory is I think the Prometheus David engineered the Xenomorphs I'm convinced he's the person wearing the engineers cloak in the trailer.

    You are getting confused. Fassbender plays two synthetics in this film: David and the synthetic that goes with the Covenant crew (dif android)

  • locoghoullocoghoul Fuck Chun Joined: Posts: 3,704
    ok lol as I posted I got what you meant. Yeah there are theories saying that the xenomorph shown on Covenant is called a protomorph and that the xenomorph on the later alien movies are David's touch. There is also the Neomorph (white one) that is bred differently (from the spores rather than a face hugger)

    lol No Franco in that trailer. Over under on how long it'll take for him to be dead? Maybe he gets so stoned he falls out of the ship in the first five minutes.

    Also in Alien 3 they showed too much of the Xenomorphs. Monster movies always work better when the fear is psychological the same is said about Jaws.

    That's what I thought, the first covenant trailer was scarier than this one. We didn't need to see the giant Xenomorph at the end, at least not it's entire body, and from that trailer it's not hard to figure out who dies....... Or this might be a case of them putting scenes in the trailer that won't occur in the film to trick us... actually I doubt that, lol.

    I'm hoping the trailers are a bait to draw in the more casual sci-fi audience. Typical Xenomorph stuff, but the movie actually does expand upon the world building that Prometheus set up.

    I don't even watch dragon ball Z but that pink runner alien in the wheat field reminds me of kid buu. McBride seems to be a terrible dramatic actor.
