Merry Christmas! Get ready to poop your pants with the frightening, creepy, intense trailer for “Alien: Covenant.”
Ridley Scott returns to give “Alien” fans a thoughtful and awesome Christmas gift with this incredibly promising trailer. The film takes place after Prometheus, but before the original “Alien” that was released in 1979.
There are deadly xenomorphs ready to burst out, alien starships, and some egg pods, which you might not want to step on. All set to a haunting cover of Nat King Cole’s song “Nature Boy.”
“Covenant” chronicles the crew of a colony ship who “discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world.”
Michael Fassbender returns as David, the android from Prometheus. Fassbender said that “Alien: Covenant” is “much scarier” than “Prometheus,” and has “more of the sort of thriller, imminent disaster feel that Alien had, so it’s kind of a beautiful meeting of both of those films.”
The cast includes Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, and Amy Seimetz.
“Alien: Covenant” will be released on May 19th, 2017.
