May of 2017 just can’t get here fast enough. Not only is 2017 loaded with high profile franchise sequels (Friday the 13th, Leatherface, Michael Myers, Chucky and more will return next year) and much-discussed indies, there’s also another Alien film coming our way. YES — ANOTHER ALIEN FLICK!!!! This one, like Prometheus, will serve as a prequel… well, a prequel to Alien, and a sequel to Prometheus, to be precise. Either way, what we’ve seen of Alien: Covenant looks absolutely bad ass!
And speaking of what we’ve seen, we’re going to go ahead and share a lot of those goodies. We’ve got a series of videos attached and in those videos you’ll see a slew of behind-the-scene stuff, from Xenomorph designs to candid photos to expansive set pieces and even a little chatter from Ridley Scott himself, everything you need to know about Alien: Covenant (without spoiling its potential brilliance) can be found right here.
Alien: Covenant is directed by Ridley Scott who helms from a script penned by Michael Green, John Logan and Jack Paglen. Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Katherine Waterston, Guy Pearce, Billy Crudup, James Franco, Demián Bichir and Danny McBride star.
Look for the film to hit theaters on May 19th, 2017.
Synopsis: Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
