Ridely Scott has revealed that Prometheus 2 is titled Alien: Paradise Lost apparently making it much more of a prequel to the original Alien that Prometheus 1 was.


EMPIRE - Ridley Scott Talks Alien: Paradise Lost

Quote:
Years ago, I kept mulling over what Alien 2 could be. I was fiddling around with some ideas. I was always fascinated with why this thing [the xenomorph] would be made, by whom, and for what purpose? The planet it was on – and I was looking at the dark side of the moon – would be called Paradise. Paradise is a very ominous word...

In a way it is Prometheus 2. It’s exactly the same story. But it was always in the works to be called that [Alien: Paradise Lost]. Is Prometheus actually taking us off course from where I’m going, which is actually backing into the first Alien... I’ve even got connections with Ripley [in this], but I’m not telling you what.


HeyUGuys - Ridley Scott reveals title of Prometheus 2

Quote:
Actually, it’s going to be called Alien: Paradise Lost, so Prometheus 2 isn’t what it’s really going to be. You know the poem? I doubt you’ve ever been through it, have you? The poem’s a book, Paradise Lost! It sounds intellectual, but there’s a similarity to it, and that’s where it stops.


Thoughts?

Ridley's making this up as he goes and the studio stepped in to call it 'Alien.'

Interesting. I hope it doesn't suck.

I didn't think Prometheus sucked, I just thought it was a tad misguided. Another example of miscalculation in the editing room. All 30 minutes of deleted scenes could have been kept in, and it would have made for a more coherent narrative.

Prometheus was pretty bad, yo.

Nothing made any sense. It was just a sequence of events that happened with no apparent relevance to each other.

So I guess the title has been changed to Alien: Covenant.

New logo & synopsis:

Image

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

What is the source of this information?

20th Century Fox.

What's unclear is whether Ridley will continue to pursue his other two prequels that lead into Alien. The announcement makes it seem like this will take the story right up to the original film.

Ridley Scott apparently first dropped the name change in an interview with Indiewire at the AFI film festival. 20th Century Fox then officially announced it today, it's on their twitter feed.

A classic case of Scott changing his mind and getting back on the ALIEN bandwagon. I'm a fan of Prometheus but I can see how it ostracised fans. Didn't help that Scott was so fckn vague in his synopsis of the film - it's an Alien movie! but it's not actually an Alien movie! but it's in the same universe! blah blah

Now everything has come around full circle. They've added ALIEN to the title and changed Paradise Lost to the ship name keeping in line with Prometheus.

With Blomkamp teasing Alien 5 lately I think it kicked Scott into gear. "Hands off it's my Alien franchise I'm gonna make another 5 sequels" whatever bro

First Alien: Covenant trailer promises blood, gore and intense Xenomorph action!
http://www.alien-covenant.com/news/first-alien-covenant-trailer-promises-blood-gore-intense-xenomorph-action

Trailer is probably coming with Assassin's Creed.

This is a good site for keeping up with the production.

:yay:

Thanks for the info. I hope this is better than Prometheus, which I didn't think was bad, but I don't dig it as much as I wish I did.

You're welcome.

I feel the same about Prometheus.

It's okay, but with all the hype about Scott returning to science fiction and everything, not to mention the fact that I followed the production in a way that I haven't since the prequels, I must say that it was a big disappointment overall.

This new film is bothering me as well. The Paradise title was/is better. It looks like Noomi's role is merely a cameo, and now there is this news... :(

James Franco secretly cast in Alien: Covenant!

I fucking loathe this dick. :ass2mouth:

The ALIEN Facebook page has started releasing images that are apparently from Alien: Covenant, and are being poetically vague about it...

I find those images to be vague and unconvincing

Looks like they are fulfilling the unused idea from Prometheus where someone gets killed or gives birth to a Xeno while fucking.

this movie is filled with just as much bullshit as Prometheus was.

full movie Spoilers below:
Your Mother's vagina
Image

Image

Image

Image

There are apparently 3 different "Aliens" that we will see, a "Proto-morph", a "Neo-morph" and the classic "Xeno-Morph" at the end. The big spoiler is that DAVID is the creator of the Aliens. Once he and Shaw from Prometheus land on the Engineer's homeworld called Paradise, David begins his experiments with the black goo in order to create the "perfect organism." He unleashes the bio-weapon / spores onto the Engineers which wipes them all out. He then proceeds to further experiment which leads to Shaw's death but before she dies she sends out a distress beacon which the Covenant ship responds to. The Covenant spaceship lands which gives David all the more hosts to experiment on with his newly created eggs with facehugger suprise inside. The first to "hatch" is the one seen in the movie coming out the guy's back. The short spindly pale guy with two spikes on his back. He erupts from dude's back and runs on all fours like a dog. Another later decides to come back up through a guy's throat and explode his head.

There is also another "David" android named Walter that arrives on the Covenant. David apparently as his final experiment, infects Walter which creates the bio-mechanical Xenomorph we all know and love.

Oh, I almost forgot. The main chick from the Covenant spaceship... That's Ripley's MOM. :funkyvflamethrower:

i've done some more digging and the ending i posted earlier appears wrong.
David doesn't experiment on Walter, he switches places and pretends to BE Walter at the end as the surviving crew makes their way back to the Covenant. There the crew go back into hyper sleep as David/Walter sneaks on board 2 proto-morph embryos as it is revealed there are thousands of crew still in hypersleep. film ends.
