Last Month when the Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant trailer came out, it seems that it would be a great return to the franchise’s horror roots and once again the audience will be able to step into an immersive horror world. The 20th Century Fox has also announced that they are also developing a Virtual Reality experience which will be following the same pattern that was used while establishing the same kind of experience for the Ridley Scott’s last film- The Martian.
The project will be directed by David Karlak and moreover there will be a collaboration between Scott’s RSA, VR production house MPC VR and also the Fox innovative lab. The projected is described as the dreadful journey into the depths and realms of the Alien universe. The project is expected to be released this year. Lips are sealed in case of any further details and distribution strategy.
The Virtual Reality has always been seen as a great opportunity in terms of Virtual Reality experience. If we talk about the reactions of the public, then the demo got very positive and overwhelming reactions. Fox also brought the Virtual Reality, Immersive experience on their Assassin’s Creed film last month. If we see from the studio’s perspective, then this was a great and obvious opportunity that will lead to different scenarios like; audiences can head to their nearby theaters to watch Scott’s latest prequel. Alien: Covenant project is said to be released on May 19th, 2017. Its Virtual Reality experience will also arrive sometime soon this year. Let us see, if it is better than The Martian.
