Charles S. Dutton,
Almost eleven years after the futile and disastrous expedition on the distant moon LV-223, the deep-space colonisation vessel Covenant equipped with more than 2,000 colonists in cryogenic hibernation, sets a course for the remote planet Origae-6 with the intention to build a new world. Instead, a rogue transmission will entice the crew to a nearby habitable small planet which resembles The Earth. The unsuspecting members of Covenant will have to cope with biological foes, beyond human comprehension. Ultimately, what was intended as a peaceful exploratory mission, will soon turn into a desperate rescue operation deep into the cold infinite space. Written by

At first glance it appears that when the Xenomorph climbs down the hole on the ship, its dorsal tubes phase through the floor. However they can be seen to be quite flexible, folding back against the creatures body. See more »
So, let me get this right...a studio green lights this pathetic project with multi-millions of bucks, despite a script with more holes in it than a Trump speech, worse acting than a school musical and sadder CGI than a fifties Godzilla film. The mind boggles at this garbage. The really disappointing thing is it started out so well...but rapidly descended into a joke. Hollywood seriously? Are you that stupid? How can so much money produce such a crappy film? Where are the good scriptwriters? Just how often are you going to insult your audiences until you've lost them completely? Aliens Covenant is total garbage. Yeah it's kinda stomach churning and mildly tense in parts but the ridiculous way it's itself set up can't help a viewer feeling cheated. I walked out of this dumb film wanting a refund. It was stupid on almost every level. But the scriptwriters need to be singled out for their utter incompetence. The story is incredulous. It also is so far removed from the Alien franchise that I left thinking Ridley Scott really needs to give it a rest. Or else employ some decent scriptwriters. There's no excuse with this budget for such a lousy result. Just stop already.
