Introducing the ALIEN: COVENANT Crew

20th Century Fox has released a prologue to Ridley Scott‘s latest entry in the Alien franchise, titled Alien: Covenant.

The prologue is called “Last Supper,” and it runs a little under five minutes in length. It follows the crew of the Covenant we saw in a recent image, including Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, and Demián Bichir, letting loose and enjoying their last meal together before going into cryosleep on their way to colonize a far away planet.

Today is Ridley Scott‘s 79th birthday. So happy birthday, Mr. Scott. The man who brought us Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, and The Martian, not to mention the many other films and TV shows he is a producer on. He is currently hard at work putting the finishing touches on Alien: Covenant.

So to help celebrate this momentous occasion a new behind-the-scenes photo from the set of Scott’s upcoming film has been released. If you think a simple image being released on the Internet isn’t enough, well then you should be happy to know that the Directors Guild of America is giving the Academy Award-winning director a Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in film. Check out the image below.

Alien: Covenant To Release Earlier Than Expected; New Poster Released

Another unexpected treat on this holiday is a brand new poster for director Ridley Scott‘s next Alien movie, titled Alien: Covenant. It’s about as simple as they come, and it’s a safe bet that no fan of the franchise is going to have even the slightest problem with that.

Even more exciting? The poster has a release date on it, and it is not the October 6, 2017 date we previously knew about, nor is it the even earlier August 4, 2017 date it got pushed up to. Unlike most movies, which often get delayed, the new Alien is moving closer once again with a new May 19, 2017 release date.

Noomi Rapace Will Return For ‘Alien: Covenant’

Noomi Rapace

Contrary to what we have heard in the past, and the fact that the film has already commenced shooting, Noomi Rapace is on board to reprise her role as Elizabeth Shaw in Alien: Covenant. Previous reports made no mention of her, and even the synopsis that was released seemed to have indicated that she did not survive the events after Prometheus, despite being one of the only survivors to have her head on her shoulders and all four limbs attached. In fact, the only person that made it onto the film’s synopsis was David (Michael Fassbender), and if you recall, his head was taken clean off of his android body. So it would have been interesting to know who was the one person to reattach his head to his body.

Now we know who, but what will Elizabeth Shaw be doing in the film. More on that below.

Movie Review: You’re Next

You're Next Film PosterYou’re Next
Director: Adam Wingard
Screenwriter: Simon Barrett
Cast: Sharni Vinson, AJ Bowen, Nicholas Tucci, Wendy Glenn, Joe Swanberg, Barbara Crampton, Amy Seimetz, Ti West
Lionsgate Films
Rated R | 91 Minutes
Release Date: August 23, 2013

Coined by Carol J. Clover in her 1992 book Men, Women, and Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film, the “Final Girl” is a popular trope in horror films that refers to the last woman alive to fight the killer.

Sally Hardesty from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre; Ellen Ripley in Alien; Halloween‘s Laurie Strode; Heather Langenkamp’s Nancy from A Nightmare on Elm Street – all of these are resilient women who are masculinized through “phallic appropriation” by taking up a weapon, like a knife or chainsaw, against their would-be killer.

The “Final Girl” convention forces the male audience to identify with a female character in a male-oriented genre associated with exploitation, voyeurism, and brutality. Think about horror movies – slasher films in particular – how many of them end with a lone male survivor?

If you haven’t read Clover’s book, I would highly recommend it, as it raises some interesting questions about the nature of horror films and their relationship to feminism. It seems that for a horror film to be successful, it’s necessary for the surviving character to be female – even if she is masculinized.

This brings us to Adam Wingard‘s latest film, You’re Next. Written by Simon Barrett, You’re Next isn’t interested in deconstructing the horror genre or mocking its tropes, but rather reinvigorating them. The “Final Girl” is resurrected in the form of Erin (Sharni Vinson), a survivalist who fights a gang of axe-wielding psychopaths in creepy animal masks.
