Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant Trailer Is Here!
The sequel to 2012’s Alien prequel Prometheus, Covenant follows the titular colony ship as it lands on a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. The place looks like an uncharted paradise to everyone, but naturally, there are some nasty surprises in store, from icky little critters to one familiar face in the form of Michael Fassbender’s “synthetic” meanie David. SEE TRAILER BELOW
For this go-around, Ridley Scott’s assembled a firecracker cast of newcomers like Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, and James Franco alongside returning stars in Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce. Let’s not forget that Pearce played the now-deceased billionaire CEO Peter Weyland. So, his inclusion should be interesting. <<<The film is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2017.>>>
