Expats in China and local moviegoers were quick to catch the missing kiss between cyborgs Walter and David, both played by Fassbender.

In a surprise turn, Ridley Scott's 'Alien: Covenant' came in behind expectations at the weekend box office with a $36 million debut from 3,760 theaters in North America. Elsewhere, 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul' bombs, while YA film adaptation 'Everything, Everything' lures younger girls.
Alien: Covenant is now in theaters. Two scientists, Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green), on an expedition to Scotland in the not-too-distant future, find evidence of an advanced alien species that they to calling “Engineers.” They theorize that aliens might’ve created humanity. Shaw and Holloway are subsequently hired by Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce aged with a lot of makeup) to explore a planet they believe to be the home of the Engineers.

When it comes to blowing stuff up for the big-screen, Hollywood’s blockbuster directors turn to Neil Corbould, who over the course of a four-decade career has handled the practical effects for a wealth of illustrious films, including Superman, The Fifth Element, Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Superman Returns, War Horse, and The Martian. A five-time Oscar nominee and two-time winner (for Gladiator and Gravity), Corbould’s latest venture was perhaps his most widely seen — Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which served as his maiden trip to the galaxy far, far away. With Rogue One arriving on Blu-ray release today, we spoke with the special effects supervisor about giving the movie its wartime style, the relationship between practical and digital effects, and setting off explosions around Darth Vader — as well as his upcoming work on Alien: Covenant and Mission: Impossible 6.
Last night’s season finale of The Walking Dead didn’t just provide another zombie apocalypse nail-biter — it also kept its breaks interesting with a series of three new ads for director Ridley Scott‘s much-anticipated summer sci-fi horror film, Alien: Covenant.

It’s not 100 percent clear that anyone really wants to know where the aliens we first met almost 40 years ago in Alien came from — as with all the best horror-movie monsters, their mysterious origin is partly what’s so scary about them. Nonetheless, Ridley Scott seems to think the world must know how and why the xenomorphs came to be, as evidenced by his upcoming Alien: Covenant, a second prequel to his 1979 original, which will delve further into the creatures’ backstories. ...
It’s still true that, in space, no one can hear you scream — unless, that is, you’re on a spaceship, or on an alien planet, populated by hostile extraterrestrials. Would you believe it’s probably the same mysterious locale that Noomi Rapace’s astronaut and Michael Fassbender’s android were heading to at the end of Prometheus?
