The May 19th release date creeps ever closer and the PR machine gets ever more ramped up. Last week it was the stand alone clip – this week we get our first official trailer for Alien: Covenant and – it’s pretty damn fine.
Alien: Covenant still sits as a prequel to the original Alien – taking place roughly a decade after the happenings of Prometheus but still well before the crew of the original Alien would be on the scene. Alien: Covenant will tell the following story:
“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.”
Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, James Franco, and Noomi Rapace all have a role in trying to defeat the lovely Xenomorphs. I think we know how this one is going to end….
As I mentioned – May 19th brings all the fun and horror.
A new poster has made its appearance as well – the teaser poster told us to RUN, apparently that didn’t work so well and now it’s time to HIDE- give it a look!
