I've been asked by several people what my thoughts are on the upcoming 'Alien: Covenant', so I figured I'd answer with a quick post.
I have no interest. And have no plans on ever seeing it.
'Prometheus' changed the alien from a "natural creature" to "mutagenic goo byproduct", and changed the Space Jockey from "alien species pilot" to "giant human" (100% shared DNA, remember)... who seeded life on Earth.
These are facts and there's no getting around them.
And from what I gather, Giger's Alien is now created via experimentation by the mad scientist android David(?). Fuck off.
'Prometheus' ruined everything I loved about the Alien and the Alien Mythos. And 'Alien: Covenant' is literally 'Prometheus 2', so why would I go back for more?
No, I will not be seeing 'Alien: Covenant'. Nor do I plan on watching any future outings, so long as the have any connection to 'Prometheus'.
^ Ridley Scott's Giant Human ripping off my head.
Maybe I'll chop off the bottom under 'ALIEN' :)
