We loved Prometheus. Sure, it had a few problems, as most movies do, but Ridley Scott attempted to reinvigorate a once-great franchise by taking some risks and that is never a bad thing, especially when those risks — and mistakes — have lead us to Alien: Covenant and the return of the classic black, acid-spitting, nasty critter that started it all in in the seminal 1979 Alien.
If you’re just tuning in, Alien: Covenant takes place after Prometheus and before Alien. There’s a whole new crew to get to know and at least one familiar face in Michael Fassbender, who returns as the android David from Prometheus, and also as a more advanced model of android named Walter.
Turn off the lights, get comfortable and be sure to put down any beverages or small children because this trailer is creepy and tense and just might make you jump out of your seat!
Acclaimed filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the world that he created in this sequel to Prometheus written by John Logan (Spectre).
Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir and Carmen Ejogo.
The movie is slated for release on May 19, 2017.
