Alien: Covenant featurette focuses on Ridley Scott as "rare breed"

I've made my misgivings about PROMETHEUS and the look of its direct sequel ALIEN: COVENANT before already. But as a fan of the series, I don't want to hate an ALIEN movie, so it's been heartening to hear that the film is actually getting good reviews and seems to be a return to form. And that's what this next featurette - titled "Rare Breed" - is about: a return to form. Let's take a look:

I'll agree, it's undeniable that Ridley Scott is a great craftsmen, and has made some of the best genre films of the last forty (!) years. But he's also had a pretty spotty record recently, and whatever you thought of PROMETHEUS, it certainly wasn't met with unanimous praise. So it'll be interesting if this time he can actually capture the magic. Let's hope he does.

Meanwhile ALIEN: COVENANT will be stalking dark theaters May 19th, 2017.

i really wish they would stop spoiling SO MUCH from this film. there was no reason to include Shaw's (most likely) fate in this video.

I really can't compare Alien and Aliens except to say that I love both films for different reasons. Alien was what Ridley called the old darkhouse film done in a superior way. It brings the terror and claustrophobia full bore while leaving certain things to the imagination. Aliens finds its own identity by dialing up the action, raising the stakes, introducing some great new characters while strengthening the main one, and generally expanding on the scale of everything. They share some

They share some similarities of course, but I've come to the conclusion that they really can't be compared the way most originals and sequels are because their aspirations, tone, and feel are so different in some key regards.
