Tested: Adam Savage Tries On A Spacesuit From Alien: Covenant
Alien: Covenant is almost out in theaters, and though some reviews have put it slightly above Prometheus, there’s no doubt that the production value of the movie is anything short of amazing. On Tested, Adam Savage got special permission to look into the set of Covenant, and he’s release another video of him walking around on set.
It’s phenomenal the work that went into these suits. Covenant will be introduce two more spacesuits to the Alien-verse, and the production team had managed to construct one bulky spacesuit for Danny McBride to wear. I’m particularly impressed with the joints on the suit and how something so bulky turned out to be so movable.
There’s also a discussion on the mindset when it came to designing the suits, and it’s cool how they tried to design everything to look timeless and not too “futuristic.” If I can give Ridley Scott some credit, his movies always look visually stunning.
Alien: Covenant hits theaters May 19.
