20th Century Fox’s Alien: Covenant wrapped back in July. Today, of all days, FOX released it’s first official trailer. Yes, on Christmas Day, the day where kids are feverishly unwrapping presents and parents just can’t seem to suck down enough coffee, a trailer full of scary ass alines out to slaughter some humans, rules the day. Father Christmas is gonna be so pleased.
Alien: Covenant, the sixth film in the Alien series but the second chronologically, taking place about a decade after the events of Prometheus. It looks as stunningly designed and ambitious as the former but feels much more like a classic alien film. What creeps in the shadows, followed by lots of running and screaming. Yep, this is defiantly an Alien movie.
Alien: Covenant centers on members of an intergalactic expedition, aboard the ship Covenant, who discover what they think is an uncharted paradise. They soon find that this planet is a dark and dangerous place, whose only inhabitant is David (Michael Fassbender), the sole surviving member of the Prometheus expedition.
Alien: Covenant also stars Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride,Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and apparently James Franco. Ridley Scott is directing from a script by Jack Paglen, Michael Green, John Logan.
Alien: Covenant opens on May 19, 2017.
