The Alien: Covenant theatrical release left many fans a little confused or disillusioned about Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror franchise. Fox is hoping that the Blu-ray release will not only fill in the gaps, thanks to a number of deleted scenes that feature more lore, but also generate enough revenue to create the proposed sequels.
A new deleted scene from Alien: Covenant gives us a better look at the outcome of the Engineers. The footage shows us what happened just after David rescued the Covenant crew from a Neomorph attack and lead them to his hideout. We see the devastation and remains of humanity’s creators.
Of course, this is just one of many extended scenes from the Blu-ray release, set for August 15th. The other scenes included are Prologue (Extended), Walter in Greenhouse, Oram and Daniels (Extended), Walter Visits Daniels, Daniels Bedroom Flashback (which will likely include a little more of James Franco), Jacob’s Funeral (Extended), Ledwards Fall, Crossing the Plaza (Extended), Daniels Thanks Walter, Rosenthal Prayer, Walter Reports Back and Stairs to Eggroom (Extended).
It’s probably no surprise to fans that the Alien: Covenant Blu-ray is chock-a-block full with extras and never been seen footage. Ridley Scott’s previous Alien film, Prometheus, pretty much had the same thing. It seems Scott understands the importance of making these collectables more valuable for fans.
