Horror has certainly seen its ups and downs through the recent years, but in 2017 it is the presence of a classic property that is getting people talking. Ridley Scott is returning to the franchise that he created and hoping to revitalise the horror of the Alien series with Alien: Covenant, looking to promise once more that in space no-one can hear you scream.
This time around we are in the presence of the crew of the colony ship Covenant as they journey to an unknown planet that will be very different to what they could have ever imagined. The paradise that they thought the planet to be will soon become their worst nightmare…
In preparation for the new horrors that await us, a new video has been revealed for the film which sees the crew of the Covenant taking what can only be described as their last supper before heading into cryosleep. With the likes of James Franco, Katherine Waterston, the returning Michael Fassbender and Danny McBride on top form in the prologue, we can instantly see who the key players in the film will be and we already get the sense of the personalities within the large crew.
Speaking of food they will bitterly miss and mentioning the idea of creatures lurking out there in the vast environment of space, it’s a brilliant introduction to this next chapter in the saga and builds up a nice sense of tension before the inevitable awakening, which we presume will open the film when it arrives in May.
Meet the crew for their last supper below.
Alien: Covenant is released in the UK in May.
