Storyline

Almost eleven years after the futile and disastrous expedition on the distant moon LV-223, the deep-space colonisation vessel Covenant equipped with more than 2,000 colonists in cryogenic hibernation, sets a course for the remote planet Origae-6 with the intention to build a new world. Instead, a rogue transmission will entice the crew to a nearby habitable small planet which resembles a lot like the Earth, nevertheless, sooner or later, the unsuspecting members of the Covenant will have to cope with invincible and unconquerable biological foes beyond human comprehension. Ultimately, what was intended as an exploratory and peaceful mission, under those circumstances, it will soon turn into a desperate rescue operation deep into the cold infinite space.

Trivia

The hairstyle that Daniels (Katherine Waterston) sports in this film was based on the wig worn by Ezra Miller, Katherine Waterston's co-star in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016). It was Miller, during a break while filming Beasts, who helped to film her audition video. While filming inside his trailer, she noticed the wig that he wore for his character, Credence, and asked him whether she could try putting it on, as she thought it was cool. What caught her interest in doing this film, was the two assurances by Ridley Scott in his offer letter: to film the required material from the actors quick, and in time; and constant engagement with the principal actors over their characters over dinner after each day of filming.

Warning! Warning Will Robinson! This film is Crap
25 May 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

So, let me get this right...a studio green lights this pathetic project with multi-millions of bucks, despite a script with more holes in it than a Trump speech, worse acting than a school musical and sadder CGI than a fifties Godzilla film. The mind boggles at this garbage. The really disappointing thing is it started out so well...but rapidly descended into a joke. Hollywood seriously? Are you that stupid? How can so much money produce such a crappy film? Where are the good scriptwriters? Just how often are you going to insult your audiences until you've lost them completely? Aliens Covenant is total garbage. Yeah it's kinda stomach churning and mildly tense in parts but the ridiculous way it's itself set up can't help a viewer feeling cheated. I walked out of this dumb film wanting a refund. It was stupid on almost every level. But the scriptwriters need to be singled out for their utter incompetence. The story is incredulous. It also is so far removed from the Alien franchise that I left thinking Ridley Scott really needs to give it a rest. Or else employ some decent scriptwriters. There's no excuse with this budget for such a lousy result. Just stop already.
