EA Games have released some better resolution images of the ‘Heros of the Last Jedi’ expansion packs for Battlefront II, which it showed recently of Rey and Kylo Ren’s new costumes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
One of my favourite film posters this year is the intense new poster for Alien: Covenant! Unlike most of the other lazy posters that the studios release these days, they’ve actually put some artistic effort into this. The first two which had a fairly ominous and simplistic look to them, but this new variant by 20th Century Fox features a full view of the “Protomorph” Xenomorph surrounded by what look to be dead Engineer bodies and other Aliens! The background looks very similar to Alien hive walls as well, and interestingly teases the Alien Queen hidden in the background.
Ultimately this poster seems to depict a collage of chaos, showing the overthrow of the Engineer society by the infection of the hostile Alien race, something which might tie back to the finale of the Alien: Covenant | Prologue: The Crossing, showing Michael release the pods onto the Engineers homeworld…see below

The latest poster is quite tame in comparison, very Ripley Alien esque.

Brand new Star Wars Battlefront II concept art has surfaced, showcasing some of the locations included in the upcoming sequel. The art shows the iconic and infamous Death Star – a location that also became playable in Battlefront after the release of the Death Star DLC last year. The mysterious world of Kamino can also be seen on the concept art alongside the capital of Naboo, Theed. Another interesting location is Vardos – the brand-new Imperial planet in the Star Wars universe.
The official trailer for Battlefront II was shown during the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando last weekend. The sequel to Battlefront will invite players to the “Dark Side”, and will let them play as an elite soldier in the Imperial navy.
“We wanted to give the Empire heroes in that same way,” EA Motive’s game director, Mark Thompson, said during a preview event at the Star Wars celebration. “Who are the elite soldiers on the battlefield who strike fear into the rebels? Who are the elite pilots that kids growing up [as citizens of the Empire] look up to and aspire to be?
The Star Wars Celebration Pass & Badge art has become its own Celebration highlight and tradition, and with good reason — each show has had unique illustrations, with different styles and approaches. Some years, there have been color themes with stylized takes on characters; other times, the focus has been on an animated series or specific movie. For Star Wars Celebration 2017 the tradition continued with Paul Shipper photorealistic sketches of characters from current Star Wars stories, with a hand-drawn feel. They complete set are revealed below.
