First Trailer Released for Alien: Covenant

20th Century Fox gave a huge holiday gift to horror fans by releasing the first trailer for Alien: Covenant.

Ridley Scott once again returns to direct the Alien franchise that made him a household name. Scott directs an all star cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett and Callie Hernandez.

The film follows the crew of the Covenant ship as they touch down on a world which seems like an uncharted paradise. Things take a turn for the worse and suddenly the crew is thrust into a situation where they must fight for their lives in order to survive the terrifying Xenomorphs. read more

New Images Released from “Alien: Covenant”

It looks like fans clamoring for a new trailer of Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant will have to quench their thirst with just a few still images released from the film’s Twitter account yesterday. One image shows Michael Fassbender, as one of his characters, dressed in all white sitting at a piano; another shows some of the blood that we’ve come to love from this series covering the inner walls of the ship.

The film’s plot synopsis reads:  “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 (Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.” read more

New Movie Poster and Release Date Unveiled for Alien: Covenant

For fans of the Alien franchise eagerly anticipating another chapter in the futuristic saga, your wait time has just been reduced.  In addition to debuting a new movie poster featuring the iconic, shadowy image of a xenomorph, producers of Alien: Covenant announced on Wednesday that the film’s release date has been moved up three whole months.  The sequel to 2012’s Prometheus (and second prequel to the original lineage of films), Covenant is now set to hit theaters on May 19, 2017.

Moving the premiere up to that date will put Alien: Covenant in direct competition with the Warner Brothers’ horror film Annabelle 2, which is expected to draw large audiences to the theaters.  The newest Alien entry has several key factors in its favor, however.  The new poster, which was released for the first time in conjunction with the release date update, features the recognizable face of the alien creature itself amidst a dark and unsettling background.  Depicting the creature up front sets the upcoming film apart from its predecessor Prometheus, which took a more indirect approach in its link to the Alien franchise.  More importantly, legendary director Ridley Scott, who directed the original 1979 film as well as the 2012 prequel, returns to the big chair to helm Covenant. read more
