20th Century Fox have officially announced the title, synopsis and release date for the upcoming ‘Prometheus’ sequel from Ridley Scott. It will be called ‘Alien: Covenant.’ They posted the following graphic for the film as well.
The synopsis was posted in the official Facebook page for the film.
“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. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition”
Fox announced on their Twitter that the film will hit theaters 10/6/17.
