20th Century Fox gave fans a sneak peek at Ridley Scott’s newest installment in the Alien franchise, Alien: Covenant. Before the film SXSW hosted a red carpet with Scott, Danny McBride, Michael Fassbender, and Katherine Waterston. Followed by a short Q&A with the cast before they unveiled almost 20 minutes of new clips and footage from Alien: Covenant.
They packed a lot of new stuff into those 20 minutes and it was fantastic and action packed. We got our first look at mini ‘morphs popping out of backs, mass hysteria breaking loose and a couple of explosions for good measure.
In addition to the action packed scenes we also get our first in depth look at the new android, Walter. 20th Century Fox teased the new droid two days prior to the fest with a short clip that said #MeetWalter.
In a Westworld like cinematic tone, we see how this android is brought to life. The atheistic look and feel to the clip and the whole film fits in nicely with the world set forth by Prometheus. Check out the new clip below to see how you can get your own android!
“Introducing Walter, the latest synthetic by Weyland-Yutani. Created to serve. Intelligence powered by AMD, Ryzen and Radeon.”
During SXSW 2017 the Boom Howdy team is also giving away your very own “training videos” to let you know what it takes to be part of the #CovenantCrew. Our promo features Walter and comes in a clear VHS box with goodies inside like a Covenant Crew patch, Aliens trading cards, a Walter Weyland ID badge and more!
