In somewhat of an homage to H.R Giger, the original designer on the sci-fi classic, Alien. This brand new poster for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, looks both incredibly frightening and also gorgeous to behold.
Heavily featured of course are the Xenomorphs themselves, twistedly and violently overpowering what appear to be Engineers (that’s the Space Jockey race for the Prometheus-uninitiated), whilst flanked by Facehuggers. At the top of image, we can see a very familiar looking design… The Xenomorph Queen by any chance? It certainly looks to be. And will heavily imply of an appearance in the movie.
Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, members of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think to be an uncharted paradise. While there, they meet David (Michael Fassbender), the synthetic survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous when a hostile alien life-form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival.
Directed by legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott, 20th Century Fox’s Alien: Covenant – the sixth film in the long running series, will be released in the UK on May 12th.
