alien: covenant. the reviews may have been mixed, but i loved it. it was the first horror film that was in FACT A HORROR FILM FOR YEARS. IN COVENANT IT WAS FASSBENDER VS FASSBENDER VS COVENANT. THE QUESTION IS, WHETHER OR NOT THERE WILL BE MORE SEQUELS. THERE SHOULD BE ONE OR MORE SEQUELS TO THIS. WITH THE ORIGINAL 1979 FILM SET IN 2122 AND COVENANT IN 2104.
HOWEVER, THE 79 YEAR OLD DIRECTOR HAS STATED THAT THE FILM COULD BE SET IN BETWEEN ALIEN: COVENANT (2104) AND PROMETHEUS (2093). HE HAS ALSO HINTED THAT THE TITLE COULD BE ALIEN: AWAKENING. THE FILM COULD COME OUT AS EARLY AS 2019. IF THIS IS TRUE, THEN IT WOULD BE CERTAIN THAT FASSBENDER WILL BE IN IT FOR A THIRD ALIEN FILM IN SEVEN YEARS. I THINK THAT THE FRANCHISE HAS BEEN AWAKENED (GET THE PUN!) BY COVENANT, WHICH IS SET TO BE NO.1 IN THE US THIS WEEKEND. THE FILM DEBUTED WITH $42m WORLDWIDE WITH $7.3m IN sOUTH kOREA and $6.4M in the u.k.
The final scenes of the film saw the android antihero (okay, villain) reveal himself to Katherine Waterston’s Daniels, who had previously believed, despite an array of all-too-obvious hints, that he was his kindly “brother” robot Walter.
After bidding the unlucky survivor a sweetly sinister goodnight, David then neatly regurgitated a pair of xenomorph specimens, and sailed off into the night, a ship full of sleeping colonists and human embryos at his disposal.
my personal opinion of what will happen next is that there will be a alien film in 2019 or 2020 that will be set between 2093 and 2104 and then there will be two films set IN BETWEEN covenant and the original film. after that, who knows, but i think the franchise will be finally over.
