Curse you, Ridley Scott! You've doomed our chances of getting that other Alien movie made!

Yeah this skreeonking sucks, why the hell couldn't Ridley keep his ass quiet and go retire! It's all his fault that other Alien movie got cancelled, and the worst part about all this is that sigourney weaver would have been in it! I skreeonking love sigourney weaver shes one of the reasons the alien movies are so dam cool, her presence is bad ass.

They've actually been fairly positive. Currently 79% on RT.

I'm still waiting for this film, although it has mixed critics, most of them are actually positive ones!

Yeah for sure, I'll still check it out in theaters even thou the reviews are mixed. Ohh....I was actually wrong about that earlier post saying all the xeno's are cgi, in an interview it was said there are some practical effects used for them.

Still could have CGI'd over them in post-production, like in Jurassic World

Unfortunately that will probably be the case with Covenant! :(
I hate Jurassic World so much, those cgi aerial shots of the park look terrible.

Added in 8 minutes 26 seconds:
Has it officially been stated what the strength levels are for these two? Like who actually is stronger? Both have shown off pretty extraordinary feats


No, nothing official has been stated on the strength level of either aliens- at least nothing I'am aware of.
Regardless-Wolf holding two xenos by the scruffs like angry kittens is ridiculous.

What!....really dude! putting Alien 3 below Alien 2: On Earth- an ITALIAN RIPOFF! Come on Alien 3 ain't that bad, David Fincher tried his hardest to make something out of a complete mess. Anyways hows the cgi in covenant? From what I have seen it looks kind of mediocre.
Also how much practical effects do they use?

Without spoiling me, does anyone know if Covenant has a mid or post credit scene?

Saw Covenant today, and can safely say that as an Alien movie, it far exceeds what Prometheus tried to do. And was a better movie in general.
The last time an Alien film made me so tense was the first one.

So I concur with the 3rd place ranking.
TK's Jojo. It's MUDA.

I asked that other guy, but he hasn't answered! So I'am going to ask you-hows the cgi in the movie? Are there any practical effects used for the xeno's?

Ok
Spoiler:
As far as I can tell, no practical effects for our favorite bugs . But, the CGI is pretty damn good this time around.

Thanks mate, that's kind of sad to hear there were no practical effects used for the xenos.

Our first look at the Predator in the upcoming movie.

Spoiler:
Image

The next photo gives us our first look at the Predator Yautja race, in classic armor. Although the fact that these Predators seem to be aiding Keegan-Michael Key and Trevante Rhodes by riding on the Military vehicle raises some questions.
We were provided with plot details a few months back (but sadly had to remove them at the request of the studio) which explained that there will be two different Predators in the film; one of the classic variety and one which has been genetically modified and enhanced. From what we've gathered, the classic Predators will attempt to eradicate this abomination but may need to team up with the Human detachment to do so. However those details of teaming up remain cloudy. What we know for sure is that the film will involve two different types of Predator and that the one faction will indeed be sent on a mission to undo the genetic tampering of Human scientists.

Hate to say but that Pred that is posing looks like a cosplay costume.

I agree, but I want that pic to be true because I want the Preds to be portrayed as suits.
Are actors who play bad guys really bad guys?
