Official Trailer for Alien: Covenant is Here

And a happy, horror-filled holidays to all! Or at least I think a trailer for a new Alien movie qualifies as a pretty great gift.

Dropped on Christmas Eve, this trailer for the sequel to the uneven Prometheus looks to hopefully correct the mistakes of that movie. It sure looks promising enough.

Alien: Covenant looks very, very scary and quite awesome, with many familiar sights from previous Alien movies. Facehuggers, xenomorphs, things bursting out of people, everything you like to see. And tell me that end shot of the xenomorph attacking the two in the shower doesn’t bring back (not so) fond memories of the sexual assault theme which the original was based on. There is also a shot of a spore entering a crew member’s body through their ear and a brief, spoilery look at the new alien type, called neomorphs.

Returning in their roles from Prometheus as Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce, with series father Ridley Scott back behind the camera for the third time in the Alien franchise. Aboard the colony ship Covenant which finds the new alien-infested planet are Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, and James Franco.

Alien: Covenant is set for release on May 19, 2017.
