I have rewatched Prometheus a couple of times and booked a special advance screening.

Is anyone else as excited?

Me! But I absolutely loathed Prometheus so I'm hoping beyond hope that this film is more like the originals grin

Prometheus grew on me. I wasn't keen when I first saw it.

Have you seen the after Prometheus footage?

ButtMuncher Mon 01-May-17 03:57:15

No, I haven't - should I? Would it make the film better? The only thing I liked about it was Michael Fassbender grin

I just couldn't get over the scientists doing really non-Scientist things. I'm going to watch it again though as I was pregnant and hormonal when I watched it the first time blush

Yeah they all acted so recklessly on that mission.

The extra footage is Covenant but you can find it on YouTube now.

It shows you what happened to David and Shaw after Prometheus

grinI am scrolling through 'active threads' and before seeing what topic this is under I thought "Alien Covenant" was a baby name suggestion.

Has a certain ring to it for a name 😁

This is the bonus footage of after Prometheus.

No spoilers for covenant in it at all.

I watched mark kermodes review on YouTube and he didn't rate it confused

I was only going to drool at Michael Fassbender (I know I know don't shoot me). Does anybody know how much screen time sexy Fassbender get's in this film, could be enough of a reason to persuade me to go and watch

There are two of him buttercup. Two androids he plays. He is a very major character. Plenty of drools

Michael Fassbender was excellent but the rest of it was utter gubbins. I don't think I've been as disappointed in a film for ages and I've never rolled my eyes as hard at a film as I have at this one.

Not sure how spoilery we can get, but the crew of the Covenant were as thick as pigshit. Every single one.

And half the cinema burst out laughing at 'I'll do the fingering'. (Not me, I'm not that childish, but come on...).

It is a truly, truly terrible film.

I actually don't like such films but after watching this one I feel really involved. I even found webcams and 3D simulation at It might be interesting but it just won't work with my PC. I might have to install some plug-ins etc... but I don't understand much about it((((

Another sci fi film with ridiculously stupid scientists (a bit like ‘Life’) jettisoning a colonisation trip planned for many years on the off chance a close previously undetected planet might support life and be a better alternative to the much reasearched intended destination.

And thought the explanation of how the aliens came into existence took away from the Aline franchise.
