“It’s got a great defense mechanism… you don’t dare kill it…”

Entertainment Weekly has slowing been released their 2024 Summer Preview series and lucky for us horror fans, they just caught up with Fede Alvarez and Cailee Spaeny to talk Alien: Romulus. In addition to some interesting tidbits, they’ve revealed two new images, which can be seen below.

“I remember we did one specific take of a scene where I’m with the Xenomorph and [director Fede Álvarez] kept it rolling for about…oh God, it felt like half an hour, but it was probably only 10 minutes,” Spaeny told EW. “It was just pure terror for 10 minutes straight, with the Xenomorph right there. Fede was great at throwing in little surprises like that and catching us actors off-guard.”

“My first instinct, just to try something different that hasn’t been seen before, was to approach it from the angle of characters who are not professionals or scientists; they’re not even adults,” Alvarez said. “I liked this concept of putting people in the front seat of the story who are closer to what the audience is — not that the audience is young, more that the audience is completely virgin to the realities of space. When the characters are professionals, they know more than you do. But when they’re still in their early 20s, they don’t know how to operate the f—ing airlock.”

The film is slated for an August 16, 2024 release. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for more on Alien.
