Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his ground-breaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
The follow-up to Prometheus though seems to be more action-oriented and it also makes no qualms about introducing the iconic Alien on screen in its full glory. By all accounts this latest Alien: Covenant trailer ensures that everything ends bad for the ill-fated crew.
Alien: Covenant stars Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby. The film is expected to open in cinemas in May 2017.
