After the, shall we say, polarizing Prometheus, Ridley Scott has returned for the sixth film in the Alien franchise; a promised return to the xenomorths and horror that made the first two films science fiction classics. Entitled Alien: Covenant, the film will be following Prometheus‘ ending, and Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce are returning. FOX has been releasing promo photos all week that show familiar looking locales, and this first trailer (which be warned is red band) runs Christmas red. Look at the photos released this week below and catch the official synopsis. Alien: Covenant will open May 17, 2017.
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.
