In Prometheus I suppose they tried too hard to swerve us all into a new direction and re-brand the series. Bald headed supermen did not go down well with many, so it looks like Ridley Scott is keen to reel us back into retro territory for the new movie, Alien Covenant.
The old beasts will return. ‘We’ll have them all’, Scott tells The Wrap. ‘Egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy. They’re going to go to the planet where the engineers came from, and come across the evolving creature that they had made. Why did they make it? Why would they make such a terrifying beast? It felt bio-mechanoid, it felt like a weapon. And so the movie will explain that, and reintroduce the alien back into it.’
Sounds good to me, but I’d really like to see a Pulse Rifle, just for old time’s sake. But it also sounds like there’ll be an outbreak on the Engineer planet.
