Anyone else on the edge of their seat for Alien: Covenant?

Already bought my opening day tickets for the local Dolby Cinema (audio heaven) as well as some collectibles released today "Alien Day".

Looking forward to Ridley Scott's return to the series and some scares!

    Not sure why that one got a bad wrap. I thought it was engaging and fairly well written, if not predictable as any movies in that series is.

    Alien(s) is a great series!
    I watched Alien last weekend and plan on watching Aliens this weekend.

    I love the dark scenery, leaky steam pipes, constant strobes, and loud mechanical clangs....just gets you on the edge of your seat only to be pushed back when a xenomorph rips someones face off.

    Love it!

    Cant wait to see this. Lots of juicy trailers being released. I thought Prometheus was a great movie, and I've been waiting to find out what happens next.

    I haven't seen the trailer, but have also been waiting for this next film since the end of Prometheus.

    I also liked Prometheus, but I didn't read anything about it before watching, and didn't know it was related to Alien at all until seeing some similarities while watching the film, and then started to wonder. Of course, after the ending, I had to do some reading. I don't think I even knew Ridley Scott directed it at first. Looking back, I enjoyed going into it not knowing anything, and just experiencing it and drawing my own conclusions with no expectations.

    I liked the Alien films too, pretty much all of them. Alien Resurrection sticks out. Kinda creepy and disturbing, all the mutant creatures. And Brad Dourif. He's always good for the heebeejeebies. But, bad-A Ripley with long hair? Any time B)
  • I did a Yahoo search and they have a couple of reams of pics from the movie available. It looks intense. I'm sure glad it happens far into the future, a decade or two after Social Security has collapsed.

    I saw the original at the theater. Probably that would be the best way to watch the new one. 20 more days til lift off.

    Dunno....is there enough room in his bed for you to cuddle up with him for the next few years?

    Alien had a good "jump factor". My guess Covenant will be more of the same.

    From the trailer it looks like a remake of the first one, just upgraded

    How about classic Hitchcock from the 1960s: The Birds. Every time I go outside and see a flock of crows perched on a telephone line I cringe a little and hope I can make it to the car before........ Or, from the late 70s, The Deer Hunter. Believe it or not, a movie does not need an alien monster to scar the snot out of me.

    I mean you can include AVP 2 Requiem but I wouldn't advise it =P

    I think you meant to write that you have watched Alien and plan to watch Aliens this weekend. Geesh, who brought this guy... :D

    The AVP movies sucked. I have nothing else to add with that comment.

    I was so hyped when the first one came out only to leave the theater saying WTH?!

    Man, I just saw one of those HBO preview shows on this movie....while there are obvious repeating themes and "stuff" from the other flicks....this may be one of the greatest movies ever made....I know this a bold statement, but it looks mind blowing. Hopefully the story and plot is as well done as the visuals.

    There are quite a few Dolby AMC theaters in Dallas that are showing Alien. I suggest you go to one of those, sound is incredible and picture quality is higher.

    The vertical rows of red lines are about 12 6.5 inch drivers on each line. Dolby atmos heights on top near the front and the rest of the red squares are subs.

    Did I forget to mention seat rockers XD

    I just pre purchased tickets on opening night next week. I'm stoked! I think this is going to be a good one!
  • mrbironmrbiron Posts: 4,126
    The last movie i saw in the theater was Avatar in IMAX....... :(
    My wife doesn't like movies like this and i can't bring my 3yo so i will have to wait till the discs start being produced.

    It's a shoe in for my blu ray collection. If you use vudu or another HD download service I'll PM you my code.

    Yep I'm watching that movie on my birthday... Gonna wait till may 23.
  • I just saw the HBO 15 minute preview - fans of this series s/b pleased. Release date supposedly is tomorrow, 5/19/17. It looks like Ridley Scott will breathe new life in this 4 decade old film series.

    Yup watching it at 10am Mtn tomorrow. Will report back on thoughts spoil free.
  • One of my friends in college talked me into going to see round one of this film series. I hardly ever go to scary movies. I got revenge when we went to see the Deer Hunter.

    Since Sigourney Weaver was in the original, and also in Avatar, I wonder if Ridley Scott next will do Alien vs. Avatar?
