‘Alien: Covenant’ Trailer Attacks

A Christmas gift to horror fans, the first official trailer for Alien: Covenant has landed, giving us our first look at the Alien prequel/Prometheus sequel!

Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott, who created the franchise with the original 1979 Alien and returned to helm Prometheus in 2012, directs Alien: Covenant.

The official synopsis: 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 (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

The cast includes Michael Fassbender and Noomi Repace reprising their roles from Prometheus, as well as Danny McBride, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smolett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup, and James Franco.

Alien: Covenant arrives in theaters on May 19, 2017.
