    Alien: Awakening (prequel to Alien Covenant...)

    So, apparently Ridley Scott said that the next film will be called Alien Awakening and it will be a prequel to Covenant. Blomkamp's alien film was supposed to be called Awakening..and now this is called Awakening.

    I'm confused on what new storyline he can put in between Prometheus and Covenant that will be interesting. Especially since we get the first reborn Xenomorph in Covenant. There is a Xenomorph species out there, if you watch Prometheus it's a mural on the wall, so maybe it will focus on the Xenomorphs in some way? I don't know what Scott is thinking. It went from an alien monster movie franchise to now discussing creation and god. This is getting a little too complicated for my taste, but of course I'll try to keep an open mind.

    In an interview with Fandango, it would appear as though the filmmaker accidentally revealed the title of the next installment in the “Alien” universe, slipping the name “Alien: Awakening” into a chronological list of the “Alien” prequel movies.

    “There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] ‘Alien,'” Scott said, making sense of where in the “Alien” world the films are placed. “It will go ‘Prometheus,’ ‘Awakening,’ ‘Covenant’ … fairly integral where this colonization ship is on the way.”

    Whether or not Scott merely had a slight brain lapse remains to be seen, but in all likelihood, the title of the next “Alien” movie has just been annouced. Fox didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

    If this is indeed the case, and “Alien: Awakening” will be set between the events of “Prometheus” and “Alien: Covenant,” then fans could be in for some brain melts while figuring out how to describe the film, as it would be a sequel to “Prometheus,” but also a prequel to “Covenant,” which were both themselves prequels to the original “Alien” series.

    Its about David developing the xenomorphs and killing the engineers.
    There's an interview with Scott where he talks about this idea.

    Alien: Covenant was a terrible movie.

    Some good gory scenes yeah but that doesn't stop it from being a lame movie, there's only one little scene full of tension that doesn't last throughout the whole movie, Michael Fassbender is the best thing in it, though the rest of the characters are standard and unmemorable and exist only to be killed off by the new Xenomorphs that have cringe-worthy shoddy CGI, the story completely retcons the interesting plot from Prometheus to make it into a remake of Alien and answering questions about the creation of Xenomorphs that nobody asked for, the last 20 minutes trying so desperately to be entertaining when it was just shrug-material boredom and it all just shows Ridley Scott pulling a George Lucas where he's completely missed the point as to what made the original Alien such a good movie to begin with before the sequels kept milking it for all it's worth.

    I'd say screw whatever Ridley Scott and the suits of Fox say about another goddamn prequel to a sequel-reboot to a prequel...fuck it all. Just let Neil Blomkamp make his Alien movie with a better conclusion to Ellen Ripley, Newt and Briggs and just leave the Alien franchise alone already. If nothing else, make this a segway into a reboot of Alien vs Predator done right with the colonies living on a new planet where they get caught in the crossfires of the Aliens and Predators.

    I was disappointed that they abandoned the interesting concept of "you're going to meet your creator and finding out your creator wants to kill you" at the service of just bringing back the Xenomorphs instead of doing something different like they were doing with Prometheus. Now we'll never get to know why humans were a mistake.

    Whatever.

    I don't think so. Blomkamp's movie was hinted at being called Covenant from what I remember. but that doesnt mean anything anyway because it's not happening. For all we know it could have been called Alien 5: The Prometheus Covanant's Awakening

    Glad someone else is around that didn't like it. Since I didn't like Prometheus either I think I'll stay away from any further sequels to this franchise.

    Can you link? Can't find an interview with Ridley on this. One interview I found is that he said this is what Covenant was about, not Awakening.

    Sounds great for a scene, but an entire film developed around that idea? When we already see David killing all the engineers in Covenant, an entire film based around this sounds pretty dull. I know it won't be coming out for some time, but hopefully there is some more oomph.

    Also, considering there are already Xenomorphs in the galaxy, I don't see how in any way this is a good idea in my opinion.

    No idea where it was from, but ive seen it a couple times.

    Its about David's obsession with creating a more perfect life form and he uses it to kill all the engineers.

    There wouldnt be actually. The only thing would be whatever survived the engineers and that protomorph or whatever they called it at the end of Prometheus.

    That said while i have a very soft spot for these movies and Ridley Scott, he has really fucked this franchise up.
