20th Century Fox has released an incredibly awesome and terrifying red-band trailer for Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant! This movie looks freakin’ badass and it takes us back to everything we loved about the original two films including the hardcore horror and bloody terror! This is an incredible trailer and I’m so excited to see this film! It looks like Scott is going to give fans an amazing new Alien film that fans of the original will embrace.
Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers 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.
The movie stars Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight), Jussie Smolett (Empire), Amy Seimetz (Upstream Color), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills), Billy Crudup (Watchmen), and James Franco.
Alien: Covenant is set to open in theaters on May 19, 2017.
