Extras on Alien Covenant reveal more about the backstory and one plot development for the next movie [spoilers]

I was just watching the bluray extras, and it was interesting how multiple extras were basically shorts telling us more about the events that precede the movie, from the crew to David’s journey.In the section about David (“Sector 87 – Planet 4”), we learn a little bit more about what exactly happened to Shaw – nothing unexpected but still nice to get the full story. They did arrive together and wiped out the Architects’ planet life (side note: shame that movie was never made if you ask me). Then David and her had different points of view of what to do next (David wanting to play God, which was pretty clear in the movie). David used the goo, a genetic nanotech (not something organic) that was “wasted” by the Engineer civilisation trying to atone for their sins, on the local flora and fauna (and yes, on Shaw) to develop the alien (the facehugger being a genetic adaptation of a local organism for ex.). Shaw’s human DNA was particularly responsive, and without her he clearly couldn’t have created the xenomorph (his “wolf”).But we also learn about what happens to David and the crew (the “sheeps”). Basically his last project is to work on a Queen, and this Queen is pretty much confirmed to be Daniels. Kinda makes sense when you think about it – some people were hoping Shaw might have been the Queen, but the Xenomorph wasn’t ready yet.Personally I’ve enjoyed how Covenant tried to reconcile Prometheus and Alien. Even though it wasn’t perfect and the film still tripped over idiotic crew decisions, the extras give a bit more details on how Scott will try to move on from Prometheus. Clearly the Engineers are not his priority, as their entire civilisation was wiped out by David and Shaw. So if you are looking for more on these god-like beings, you’ll probably be disappointed. It seems they were a dispensable civilisation and are completely done with. David is thus the true creator of everything Alien. He’s the real (anti) hero of this trilogy. And according to Scott, this was the plan all along.I’m not 100% sure how I feel about this yet, while it’s interesting to think about the drive for intelligence to create life, there is something a bit disappointing about the movie trying to land the Aliens’ origins on AI, it feels a bit too generic as a theme whereas Alien had the possibility to grow into something more unique? Anyhow, the DVD/Bluray extras are worth checking out!PS: there is still one thing that I can’t get my head around. Covenant presents David as the creator of all Aliens as we know them in the first movie. That creation is finalised after leaving the Engineers’ planet, on a human spaceship. Yet the first movie has eggs on an Engineer spaceship, which seemed to have preceded any of the prequels… Could it be that David has created nothing, that it is simply the natural way for the species to exist? That could be an interesting character development for the next movie, David being faced with his own mundane capabilities, and the realisation of his misplaced arrogance. via /r/movies https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/6te2or/extras_on_alien_covenant_reveal_more_about_the/?utm_source=ifttt | Visit http://www.omnipopmag.com/main For More!!! #Omnipop #Omnipopmag
