Watch the first trailer for 'Alien: Covenant' right here

Watch the first trailer for 'Alien: Covenant' right here

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS - and connects directly to Scott's 1979 seminal work of science fiction. The image of him slightly hunched over, in pain, while something tries to claw its way out of his back is the first look at Alien's new monster, the Neomorph. We already knew that director Ridley Scott had been working on his third movie in the series with next year's Alien: Covenant, but 20 Century Fox chose to release some early footage from the movie and give us a first glimpse at the trailer weeks before it would be seen by the rest of the world.

Here were the Six Days of Christmas, Alien: Covenant goodness! It's eerie, ominous and carries the rancid rind of sheer terror of the original Alien that may be hard to wash off.

The new Alien Covenant photos below come to us via The Playlist.

Alien: Covenant is set for release on May 19th, 2017 and is penned by Michael Green, Jack Paglen and John Logan.




Michael Fissbender will be appearing as Prometheus android David in "Alien: Covenant". I also like the exploitation/slasher sensibility displayed with the inclusion of a shower sex scene that gets interrupted by a creature.

Next up is a photo of two Covenant crew members played by Amy Seimetz and Carmen Ejogo. "Neomorph", the new version of Xenomorph, which is a new entry to the "Alien" franchisee is also visible in the trailer. They're joined by Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir and James Franco.

Their destination seems like an earthly paradise, until they discover the planet's sole inhabitant, the "synthetic" David (Fassbender), from the doomed Prometheus expedition. From the words of Fissbender and Scott, we could surely expect a scary Alien movie this time.
