The Blu-ray release for Alien: Covenant will have up to about 18 minutes of deleted and extended footage, as announced by 20th Century Fox.

The Alien: Covenant Blu-Ray will have a lot more than just additional footage, it also includes five featurettes, a bunch of David’s Illustrations as well as audio commentary by Ridley Scott himself. Here’s the whole shebang:

  • Audio Commentary by Ridley Scott
  • 12 Deleted and Extended Scenes (17m 58s)
  • 5 Featurettes: Meet Walter (2m 19s), Phobos (9m 8s), The Last Supper (4m 36s), The Crossing (2m 32s), Advent (6m 40s)
  • Master Class: Ridley Scott (55m 25s)
  • Theatrical Trailers
  • David’s Illustrations
  • Audio: DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1
  • 4K Blu-ray: Dolby Atmos

We don’t quite know what will be in those extended/deleted scenes, but they might shed some light on any plot holes in the film, very much like they did for Prometheus.

The Blu-ray will be available starting 15 August.
