The Blu-ray/DVD for Ridley Scott’s ambitious Alien-prequel/Prometheus-sequel arrives in stores and online in 1 week. While it was absolutely one of 2017’s most hotly anticipated theatrical releases, fans and critics (like this guy) were disappointed (to say the least). After being promised answers to questions posed in Prometheus and a solid connection to 1979’s Alien, Covenant delivered neither.
Scott has plans for another Alien prequel, one he insists will finally pull these disparate mythologies together into a cohesive narrative. The irony is, Covenant’s frosty reception has put the entire future of the franchise into question. Lesson to filmmakers: Never plan on revealing pertinent information in your next movie; fans may not appreciate being left hanging and your follow-up could end up getting scrapped. So much for grand plans.
