    Alien: Covenant Blu-ray Features Include 12 Deleted/Extended Scenes

    20th Century Fox has released details about the special features that will be included on the Blu-ray release of this summerís Alien: Covenant.

    Director Ridley Scottís sci-fi prequel/sequel was released in May to a mostly positive critical reception and a somewhat underwhelming global box office gross. The mild backlash to Prometheus may have played a role in the filmís moneymaking problems, as it opened respectably but suffered an 80 percent box office drop from Friday to Friday that destroyed its long-term prospects. The continuation of the Alien franchise may depend on the success of this home release, especially now that District 9 director Neill Blomkampís Alien 5 has been scrapped (according to the filmmaker himself). With the future of the Alien series in question, we at least now know when fans will be able to purchase and watch Covenant at home.

    20th Century Fox will make Alien: Covenant available on high definition Blu-ray starting August 15. Among the special features on the disc, the big selling point should be the twelve deleted and extended scenes that Scott has made available from his film. The scenes total up to almost eighteen minutes of additional footage that didnít make the final cut of Covenant, which already runs 122 minutes without them.

    The full list of Alien: Covenant special features are listed below, including what is sure to be another one of Scottís famously entertaining audio commentaries and a handful of other featurettes:

    Audio Commentary by Ridley Scott
    12 Deleted and Extended Scenes (17m 58s)
    5 Featurettes: Meet Walter (2m 19s), Phobos (9m 8s), The Last Supper (4m 36s), The Crossing (2m 32s), Advent (6m 40s)
    Master Class: Ridley Scott (55m 25s)
    Theatrical Trailers
    Davidís Illustrations
    Audio: DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1
    4K Blu-ray: Dolby Atmos

    There is little insight at the moment to offer regarding what is contained in the deleted scenes for Covenant and whether or not the clips would have had a significant bearing on the plot of the filmís theatrical cut (though Scott has indicated that CovenantĎs deleted scenes are not all that vital, in the past). A lot of the time, the deleted scenes for a movie were cut for a good reason, amounting to filler that would have thrown off the pacing and bloated the runtime. With a film with as many ideas and concepts as Covenant, however, these scenes could be valuable in showing how the film progressed through production, balancing the hybrid of story elements from Alien and Prometheus that Scott had in the final film result.

    @jimmy7 @Axort @Rhialto did any of you see this movie? I've never been a huge fan of the Alien series... there's a few of the movies I haven't seen yet.

    yes @chinski

    I have seen it and even I'm a true fan of the serie, the latest Alien, which was Alien: Covenant was a deception to me..

    this was my most craving movie this year and I was disapointed..

    it have its good moments but nothing like the first Alien and the sequel Aliens..

    Thanks for the analysis. I'll probably check it out anyway.

    *** Do I need to watch the first few movies in order to understand what's going on in this movie? ***

    And man you blew me away on reps this past month. Geeze lol.

    well you need to watch Prometheus first because its a sequel to it and there is many references to it as well as characters..

    have you even seen the first 2 (essentials) 2 movies of the serie? Alien, then Aliens?

    the 2 others sequels of Alien, like Alien 3 and Alien: resurrection doesnt matter at all for the serie, they are still good watch but you have to see Alien, Aliens then Prometheus in order to understand and hopefully appreciate Alien: Covevant at the bets you can because there is a story Arc between those 4..

    Hey, @chinski. Yes, i saw the movie. It left me with mixed impressions. It surely can't compare to the first Alien movies. That would be virtually impossible, anyway. I think the main problem is Ridley Scott's obsessions with several things and aspects of the whole Alien mythology. His main fixation to make the Robot the absolute and sole protagonist of the whole movie is almost beyond my comprehension. Most of the time, you have the impression that Aliens are just minor characters in an A.I. related film. He even managed to weaken respectively the Ripley-analogue female main character, which is the trademark of all the Alien movies. But you be the judge of that.
