ALIEN: COVENANT is a film that’s gone through dramatic changes over the past several months — and all in the public’s eye as well. The film started off as a PROMETHEUS film, but that didn’t last long, and it was soon revealed by director Ridley Scott that the true title of the film would be ALIEN: PARADISE LOST. That title lasted an even shorter amount of time, and a short while later, the project was then renamed to the current ALIEN: COVENANT

The confusion for the project has even extended past its title and into story territory. First Noomi Rapace seemed to be returning, but now it looks like Ridley Scott is ready to move on from the character altogether. We still don’t quite know what’s going on, but what is perfectly clear is that we’re approaching the start day for production, and the folks over at AVPGalaxy claimed to have the first location photos of the production, which is located in Fiordland National Park in New Zealand.

Check them out below!

The outlet states that these photos were taken in front of Mitre Peak, an iconic mountain in the country. They go on to speculate that perhaps the ship-like vehicle we see is perhaps the Covenant itself, but given the history in the franchise, it’s highly doubtful that’s an entire ship.

More than anything, it’s likely a landing shuttle of some sorts that the crew uses to land on some unknown planet. 

What do you think of the photos? Sound off down below!

ALIEN: COVENANT is slated to hit U.S. theaters on October 6, 2017.
