To say we’re excited about next month’s Alien: Covenant would be the understatement of the century, we’re like kids locked inside the world’s biggest toy shop on Christmas Eve. 20th Century Fox Pictures UK has sent us a new poster that cements homage towards an icon of the classic franchise, Ripley (Sigourney Weaver). The poster resonates the Alien Franchise Horror roots which show Daniels (Katherine Waterston) virtually face to face with the movie’s antagonist Neomorph, a position reminiscent to Ripley’s own predicament in previous movies hence Ridley Scott‘s taking inspiration from earlier incarnations.
We know in space no one can hear you scream but in this new U.S TV Spot ‘take Me Home‘, they can hear old John Denver Records playing. After yesterday’s 3 TV Spots that asked you to ‘Run, Hide and Pray‘ today the new TV Spot teases the whereabouts and fate of Dr Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace). She was the only survivor from Prometheus alongside android David (Michael Fassbender whose now Walter an upgrade) and in an easter egg blink or you miss a moment. In the spot we see Daniels finding Shaw’s dog tags then moving to a glitchy hologram that appears to be Shaw before she’s impaled by something. Until now Rapace hasn’t been in any of the movie’s marketing nor do we know how big a role or if any she would have in this movie. Now, this spot may just give a clue…
