Merry Christmas, everyone! Santa (well, 20th Century Fox UK…) has been and delivered the ultimate festive gift in the first trailer for Alien: Covenant, and it looks incredible.
Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, and Danny McBride, with support from Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollet, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, director Ridley Scott’s follow-up to Prometheus looks set to return the classic sci-fi horror franchise to visceral, violent form.
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking 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.
Alien: Covenant opens in UK cinemas on 19th May, 2017.
