Everything released to-date for the forthcoming Alien: Covenant film has looked amazing.
That trend continued today as Empire Magazine released its latest cover to feature the snarling, drooling, Xenomorph.
Alien: Covenant sets to continue the story director Ridley Scott began with Prometheus. The new movie starts Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, and Michael Fassbender who journey across the cosmos in a new settlement ship to establish new lives on a distant planet. But things don’t turn out very well for the settlers, as is wont to happen in the Alien franchise.
This cover certainly hints that the upcoming film will have a closer tie to the original Alien than anticipated.
It’s already a well-known fact that Scott is attempting to bridge the gap between Prometheus and Alien with a new series of films, however he also said it will be at least three more movies until fans get there.
With the previously released footage regarding one of Fassbender’s characters, David, and his arrival to the planet the Covenant ship later makes its way to, this Alien movie is shaping up to be a great entry and a true return to form.
We’ll find out more when Alien: Covenant releases in theaters May 19.
SYNOPSIS: Director Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, 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. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
