The new “Alien: Covenant” boasts stellar production design, Michael Fassbender’s subtly masterful dual performance and thoughtful musings about the creation of life.

But that’s not why anyone is going to see it. They want to see how Ridley Scott’s prequel to his groundbreakingly gory, 1979 “Alien” — a film that delivered on its pitch line “In space no one can hear you scream” — tops the chest-bursting slaughter of the original sci-fi classic.

“I think Ridley’s first line was, ‘We’re going to make a hard R-rated film, and we’re going to need a lot of claret,’ which is a term for film blood,” “Covenant” producer Mark Huffam remembers in the film’s production notes.

Whether or not he knew it at the time, Scott’s film wound up not only competing with fond, nightmarish memories of his first bloody masterpiece, but with a 2017 movie planet in which “Covenant” is only one in a parade of releases that spray the claret like a bunch of drunken Xenomorphs.

all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

it is about context. i don;t care for "claret" for "claret's" sake but it made sense in Battle of the Bastards

maybe they don't care anymore
