Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott's 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

They need to let Blomkamp or whatever his name is to do his Alien movie, technically it would Alien 3 as his story is to scrap 3 and 4 and continue from Aliens with Ripley, Hicks etc

But guess what, any future Alien movies are probably going to be cancelled for now as Disney will soon own them via the Fox deal.

Prometheus wasn't too bad but this one was terrible, basically make out the actual aliens we grew up seeing are all formed due to a cyborg who wanted to play God.
Next they'll want to do the same to Predator and say they were man made as well.

Thanks OP. Just ordered one. Worth noting that it comes with a digital copy that can be redeemed on Itunes too so if anyone has the lastest Apple tv 4k, you’ll get a 4K HDR digital copy from this too.

It has some more backstory but the main part just seems to repeat allot of the earlier films...

Exactly....it’s more like a remake than a sequel. Tired, cliched characters and plot-lines add very little to the overall alien universe.
I liked it but wasnt expecting much after reading the reviews
Roasting hot! I’ve been waiting for a directors cut but buying at this price
This is on my list for Xmas, I really hope the wife didn’t pay full price for this.

Cheers op. Great price.

Based on a true story.

Here is a code to rent it via Google play store I believe.
I thought it under-rated personally, but I agree it was not particularly original - especially the predictable 'twist' at the end. Also, I thought the franchise was better off without a back-story thereby preserving the mystery of the first film.
A 6/10 movie and unfortunately has too much cgi which just makes it much less scary than it could potentially have been.
Cheers op. Ordered. Was waiting for this to come down and a fiver is a good price.
A fiver is okay for it. Not sure we'll see a director's cut for a long time yet tho.
Thanks OP I'll have some of that for a fiver - bargain!
Ordered this earlier. Bargain on blu ray, and a great movie. Miles better than Prometheus.

And as always, it's nice of the people with no interest to chip in with their opinions no one asked for..

Soon? Fox deal is over a week old now. Disney rule the world. We will all work for The Mouse before long.

Agreed on Neil Blomkamp, who is easily the best science fiction director out there at the moment, but posting spoilers of this movie just because you don't like it is a d**k move. This thread clearly isn't for people who don't like it. It's for people who either do like it, or haven't seen it yet.

Just trying to be helpful.

FYI, I haven’t voted either way.

I thought UV copies can only be redeemed in Flixster and be watched there or Talk Talk TV?

20th Century Fox UV copies, as of late, have been redeemable on Itunes. Depends entirely on the studio that made the film. Paramount are another that let you redeem them on Itunes.

Cheers didn't know this. Flixster is a mess. Maybe all the studios should just move over to iTunes

No worries.

You have to go to the website listed on the piece of paper and redeem it that way instead of just using the code on the piece of paper. It’ll give you the Itunes code to redeem . If you do it on an iOS device, it will send you into Itunes automatically with the code too.

Flixster is a huge mess. Can’t believe the film studios haven't dumped them. I have some Sony films that refuse to show on it despite being recognised on my UV account. I think they all will begin to move over to Itunes soon. Google Play has shown up on some of my UV films too so that may be another outlet they will go to. I’m a tad biased though and would rather Itunes due to their policy of free upgrades to 4K HDR on HD digital copies.
Thanks OP, good spot! Ordered!

Oh, and merry Christmas!

Already have this, but for a fiver it's good just to have the full collection.

Although i do think that should have been called: Prometheus 2: David.

There's a prelude to covenant on YouTube which is well worth a watch. It fills in some of the gaps between Prometheus and Covenant. Although it doesn't make up for what a missed opportunity this film was by a long shot.

Just to update on this, it now appears that FOX have switched over to Google Play so no more free 4K copies it seems.

Still, better than Flixster at least.

It actually wasn't that bad worth a fiver glad I didn't go to the cinema to see it..."I'll do the fingering"
