AltspaceVR and RSA VR are joining forces to host the Alien: Covenant premiere party in virtual reality. The event will be taking place on May 18th at 8 PM EST until 8:45 PM EST in the virtual space.
Special guests David Karlak, Alien: Covenant In Utero director, and Hussain Currimbhoy of Sundance Film Festival will be discussing “VR film-making, working with Ridley Scott, and the important distinction between a Facehugger and a Chestburster.”
For those of you unfamiliar with the Alien franchise, “facehugger” and “chestburster” is in reference to the parasitic phase the alien is in while it progresses through its lifestyle. ***Spoiler Alert: In Utero features a new style alien who explodes out of the host’s spinal cord vs their chest.
