Meet Walter Video

"The all-new Walter. Created to serve." 20th Century Fox has revealed a brand new promo video for Alien: Covenant, introducing the newest version of the android made by Weyland-Yutani. The term used by the company is "synthetic", and the character is again played by Michael Fassbender. In Prometheus, he was called David, but in this movie he's known as Walter - so this video is all about meeting Walter. "Walter is the world's most advanced synthetic companion, designed to help you achieve a better human experience. Each model is individually calibrated to serve its owner's unique set of needs and preferences." There's a new website as well to custom build your own Walter. I like this marketing - it connects back to Prometheus and the marketing for David (and the TED Talk) and it's a a very clever world-building concept. See below.

Here's the new "Meet Walter" promo video from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, found on Fox's YouTube:

You can still watch the first red band trailer for Alien: Covenant here, as well as second official trailer here.

The crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but it is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. Alien: Covenant is once again directed by veteran filmmaker Ridley Scott, of the original Alien from 1979 and Prometheus from 2012, as well as the films The Martian, Gladiator, Robin Hood, American Gangster, The Counselor, Matchstick Men, Blade Runner, Black Hawk Down, Kingdom of Heaven and Legend previously. The screenplay is by Michael Green and Jack Paglen, with a rewrite by John Logan. Fox will release Alien: Covenant in 3D in theaters starting May 19th, 2017 this summer. Who's ready for this?

  • Funny how this looks more interested than anything on Westworld. :) Looking forward to the movie. Always giving Sir Scott the benefit of a doubt!!
    • Westworld sucked hard. they took a brilliant idea and turned it into LOST with boobs.
      • SillySock
        89% at RottenTomatoes...sounds horrible Figures you wouldn't like boobs...lol
        • You want to watch a great tv show? Go watch Happy Valley, Broadchurch or Run. rotten tomatoes isn't the word of God ya know. Many movies I didn't like were rated quite good and many I liked were not fairly rated. Did you like the show?
          • SillySock
            It's an aggregate and is far more useful than one person's opinion. what are the odds that something could get an 89% amongst a large group of people but "suck hard". lol
          • High odds with me. A large group of people means nothing. Or do you live by proxy? I invite you to tell me why do you think this series is great, and I'll tell you why I think it sucks.
          • SillySock
            HAHAHAHAHAHHAH This idiot thinks one man's opinion means more than a large groups. That's like ignoring climate scientists and saying global warming is a myth because the guy at the gas station said so. HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA Some people are too stupid to understand the significance of sample size.
          • Hahahaha is not a solid argument. So I must conclude that you live by proxy. A shame. You should one day down the road make up you mind on a movie or series without RT blessing. It's a very interesting experience.
          • SillySock
            God you're a moron. Probably a Trump supporter given your cluelessness when it comes to statistics and the importance of sample sets. Let me guess...you don't believe in Global Warming? Your ice cube tray invalidates the consensus of the scientific community. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH
          • As I said bob, hahahaha is not a solid argument, unless you're part of a tex avery cartoon. Wake up bobeo this is real.
          • SillySock
            What an inbred moron. Definitely a Trumpkin. Do you think the Earth is flat? The moon landing was faked? Evolution is a hoax? HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAH This is what happens when they provide internet at the trailer park. TRUMPKIN!!! TRUMPKIN!!! TRUMPKIN!!! TRUMPKIN!!!
      Until we see the second season, I am taking the first season to be a preamble to the real meat and potatoes we should getting with the subsequent seasons.
    • SillySock
      no...no it doesn't
  • Efterklang
  • David Diaz
    I'm still confused as to when this film takes place in reference to the rest of the series.
    • Efterklang
      From what I've read it's a few years, or a decade, after Prometheus. Which would be around 20 years before Alien.
    • Moe
      What if it happens concurrently with Alien but in another part of the universe? I think this would be a way to continue a story without running into the original series and being constrained by that lore... like divergent paths set in the same universe. While Ripley and her crew are battling the beast wherever they are, this film and subsequent sequels can follow this new crew and their battles but also the information they can unearth that the other crew cannnot...
  • Brilliant. So it's not impossible to see David meets Walter down the road.
    Liked the WESTWORLD version better.
