JCB has made a big breakthrough in Hollywood. Twenty machines, including Skid steer loaders, Loadall telescopic handlers and JS excavators were delivered to the set the 20th Century Fox film Alien Covenant which hits UK and Irish cinema screens on Friday.

The machines were wrapped in gold to give them a more futuristic look. Six JCB generators were also provided for the film makers to use. They star in the film alongside Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston.
