Interesting little detail on it that seems to show Luke & Rey fighting …or training, as it looks like the walking stick he’s had in previous images.

PARADISE begins in Hell…

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.

I straight up love this. It gives us three pieces of information:

Run: This movie will be fucking scary.

Alien pic: This movie will have the original Xenomorph we all wanted from the beginning.

May 19: This movie is out early, no more August…May 19.

To summarize: we are now less than half a year away from Alien: Covenant. It will probably be much better than Prometheus… (although I did like it)…Time to get hyped.

Star Wars: Rogue One Character Names and Details Revealed?

News on Star Wars: Rogue One had been relatively dormant for quite a while. That is, until a couple of weeks ago, when the first supposed plot details, character descriptions, and a possible cameo by none-other than Han Solo were revealed. Given that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has already been given center stage (though it still continues to impress at the box office), it seems the time has finally come for Rogue One to have a chance in the spotlight.

While The Force Awakens combined both the old and the new to create a film that both appealed to the nostalgia of fans as well as brought something fresh to the table, Rogue One will more likely focus on the old — mostly because it takes place earlier in Star Wars history. In fact, Rogue One is set before the events of the Original Trilogy, as it will center on the band of rebels who stole the Death Star plans and propelled their mission of taking down the Empire forward.

Due to the fact that it takes place only a short time before A New Hope, it’s expected that Rogue One will feature a few cameos from notable Star Wars characters — namely Darth Vader (who may have a more substantial role than initially expected) and Boba Fett. It seems those two characters won’t be the only two elements from the Original Trilogy to appear in Rogue One. According to the latest rumors from Making Star Wars, which claim — among other things — that Felicity Jones and Diego Luna will star in a sequence that pays homage to the iconic scene from A New Hope in which Han and Luke go into disguise as Stormtroopers.

However, while the premise may be somewhat similar, there is a small but significant difference in their respective disguises. Instead of dressing up as Stormtroopers, Felicity Jones will don the apparel of an Imperial Gunner, while Diego Luna put on the attire of an Imperial Commander. Of course, one should take caution as this is nowhere near confirmed. However, assuming that it’s true, this rumored scenario would be both a brilliant way to call back to the Original Trilogy while also putting a unique spin on the situation.

In addition, the report also went onto note more details about Alan Tudyk’s character in particular. The character is said to somehow be “more than a droid,” while also being “a commando droid” that “looks really cool.” Of course, the preceding sentence could be taken as being seemingly contradictory, but it appears that while Tudyk will be playing a droid character, that specific droid will be more complex than the others we have already seen in the Star Wars universe.

The report also goes on to give a few codenames being used for the characters in the production of Rogue One. Felicity Jones’ character is said to be codenamed Green Seal Leader, Jiang Wen’s is Seal Communicator Blue, Forest Whitaker’s is Eel Commander, and Alan Tudyk’s is Seal Droid. Additionally, the report also claims that all of the villainous characters “have codenames related to sharks.”

Again, before taking this as fact, bear in mind that none of this is confirmed. Even then, it’s possible that this is not actually what the characters are referred to as in the film itself. Remember, during the production of The Force Awakens, Daisy Ridley’s character was referred to as Kira, but we later found out that her actual name in the film was Rey. It seems this may be a similar situation, although given that these appear to be actual military-esque codenames, perhaps it’s not the same situation.

If the latter happens to be the case, then the codenames above are a quick and easy way of both making characters’ allegiances clear and also denoting their ranks in their respective groups. It’s hard to know whether these will be their actual codenames in the film, although fans will probably not have to wait too long to find out either way, as the first trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One is rumored to be premiering alongside Captain America: Civil War this May.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released on December 16th, 2016, followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII on December 15, 2017 andd the Han Solo Star Wars Anthology film on May 25th, 2018. Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to reach theaters in 2019, followed by a third Star Wars Anthology film in 2020.
