Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, members (Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup) of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think to be an uncharted paradise. While there, they meet David (Michael Fassbender), the synthetic survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous when a hostile alien life-form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival.  – 20th Century Fox

Prometheus was a visually stunning film but it answered little questions about the Alien franchise and made more questions. I am more of an Aliens guy myself but I enjoyed both Alien and PrometheusAlien: Covenant is a hodgepodge of the two. Covenant answered some lingering question from Prometheus and then made just as many questions.

Danny McBride is excellent in the movie, it is a breath of fresh air seeing him in a dramatic role. Plus double Fassbender, who wouldn’t want that?

Included with the Blu-rays you will find:

  • Blu-ray Disc
  • DVD
  • Digital HD
  • Special Features:
    • Audio Commentary by Ridley Scott
    • 12 Deleted and Extended Scenes
    • 5 Featurettes: Meet Walter,  Phobos, The Last Supper, The Crossing, Advent
    • Master Class: Ridley Scott
    • Theatrical Trailers
    • David’s Illustrations

Covenant has me excited for the future of the Alien franchise and I will be picking up the Best Buy steelbook.

I'm a recent college grad trying to make my mark on the world. But I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyways I spend way too much money on movie tickets. I obsessively buy blu-rays and other movie paraphernalia, that's what credit cards are for, right? I like anything superhero related especially the MCU, the DC CW shows and I'll tell you Batman v. Superman wasn't that bad. My ultimate guilty pleasure movie is Daredevil. Yeah the Ben Affleck one. Watch the directors cut, it'll change your life. I have a tendency to have man crushes on men named Chris, especially Chris Pratt. My superhero obsession has also led to a gym obsession, I just want to look as good as Chris Evans in a plain white tee. I have a podcast on iTunes called the Deadlifting Dorks, I think we are really funny.
