Maybe I missed something in the movie but it never set itself up to have an obvious sequel or sequels since it was presented as a very singular entity despite some Alien callbacks.

Really??  It ended with Shaw saying she wanted to get answers, and her and David flying off to find the Engineers' home world.  And there were all kinds of loose ends left unresolved, at least some of which are obviously meant to be dealt with in the follow up films.

I vaguely remember that, although I cared so little for the characters I guess the story had reached its conclusion in my mind.

With Alien: Covenant set to release on home video soon, articles are beginning to surface again.

This one is really cool, but very spoilery in terms of some REALLY meaty stuff revealed in bonus features:  http://screenrant.com/alien-covenant-deleted-scenes-explained-david-shaw-xenomorph-creation/

This one is cool in terms of Cameron's thoughts on the last film:  http://screenrant.com/alien-covenant-james-cameron-ridley-scott/

But I did find this statement a little off-base:

Quote
I thought that Alien: Covenant was a great ride. It was beautiful. I love Ridleyís films, I love his filmmaking; I love the beauty of the photography. I love the visceral sense that youíre that, that youíre present. Itís not a film that I would have made. I hope Iím not spoiling this for anybody, but I donít like films where you invest in a character and they get destroyed at the end. So, I would not have made that film.

Uh...
