    Alien: Covenant poster pays tribute to Alien 3

    A new poster for ‘Alien: Covenant’ gives us another terrifying glimpse at the iconic xenomorph… and it looks as though it’s on the prowl. Clutching her favourite space rifle as she hides from the slathering alien, Daniels (played by Katherine Waterston) is definitely channelling the Ellen Ripley look. Not bad, and it’s clearly intended to remind us that this is an ‘Alien’ movie following the ‘mixed’ critical responses to ‘Prometheus’.

    Michael Fassbender talks 'other robot' role in Alien: Covenant

    The last we saw of Michael Fassbender’s evil android David in ‘Prometheus’, he was a bit on the dismembered side. And in the forthcoming sequel, ‘Alien: Covenant’, he’ll be reprising not only that role – presumably rebuilt in some way – but also the role of another robot called Walter. And while he’s not letting much else slip about the plot, and how Walter will be weaved into the action, he’s explained that they’re very much droids of a different stripe. “I think Walter’s a real different kettle of fish,” he told ComingSoon. ...

    While Xenomorphs might be the most iconic extra-terrestrials in the ongoing Alien franchise, they're certainly not the only versions of the terrible creatures we've seen in the movies. Now, Michael Fassbender – who will be reprising his role as synthetic David in the follow-up – has revealed that we'll see a new kind of galactic beast in Ridley Scott's upcoming sequel Alien: Covenant.

    Newt Will Be In Alien 5, Says Michael Biehn

    Just when Sir Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ has been gathering momentum and dominating the ‘Alien’ franchise headlines, Michael Biehn’s only gone and revealed some juicy details on the plot for ‘Alien 5′. Biehn, the actor who played Corporal Hicks in James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’, had a lot to say regarding ‘Alien 5′ (as per its working title), declaring it was still very much happening. Not only does this, as he previously specified, ignore ‘Alien 3′ and ‘Alien: Resurrection’, but it plays out a very different timeline whereby both Hicks and Newt survive the crash-landing in David Fincher’s ‘Alien 3′.
