The hairstyle that Daniels (Katherine Waterston) sports in this film was based on the wig worn by Ezra Miller, Katherine Waterston's co-star in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016). It was Miller, during a break while filming Beasts, who helped to film her audition video. While filming inside his trailer, she noticed the wig that he wore for his character, Credence, and asked him whether she could try putting it on, as she thought it was cool. What caught her interest in doing this film, was the two assurances by Ridley Scott in his offer letter: to film the required material from the actors quick, and in time; and constant engagement with the principal actors over their characters over dinner after each day of filming.

When Daniels and Tennessee eject the trucks from the cargo bay, they start to fall towards the planet.
The Covenant spent most of the movie very close to the planet's surface, including near the end meaning the planet's gravity would have an effect on the truck. If the Covenant had been orbiting, the trucks would have merely trailed behind it in the same orbit ; but it was effectively hovering over the planet, so they fell out. See more »
No suspense. No Horror. A permanent stain on the franchise that makes you feel dirty after having watched it.
I had pretty much no expectations going into this film. I had avoided much of the marketing material beforehand and knew very little about it other than it being a sequel to Prometheus, which I actually thought was a half decent film and a worthy prequel to Alien.
I'm not sure what went wrong with this film, but it is no exaggeration to say it is one of the worst films I've had the misfortune of sitting through. There is not one redeeming scene. The story is disjointed and quite frankly a complete mess. The editing is horrendous, the score completely forgettable and the cinematography is weirdly terrible.
Even Michael Fassbender cannot save this awful dirge. The CGI xneomorph will haunt my dreams for quite some time. Not because it's an imposing and scary alien in this film, but because the CGI is some of the worst you'll see from a movie this year.
Alien and Alien 2 were as close to cinematic perfection as you're going to get. Please avoid this dreadful film.
