This week 20th Century Fox gathered members of the press to give some sneak peaks into their future releases. The press were shown the ‘War For The Planet Of The Apes’ trailer before it was released today, as well as a 40 minute preview of the highly anticipated 2017 Wolverine solo outing, ‘Logan’.
A 15 minute preview and the first trailer for the next instalment of the ‘Alien’ franchise, ‘Alien: Convenant’, was also shown and the general feedback the internet has been receiving, from those lucky enough to attend the event, is that this film is the ‘Alien’ film fans have been waiting for.
Alien focused news site, AvP Galaxy, exclusively revealed Franco’s role in the film on their website and also revealed that Franco will be playing the character Branson, Captain of the Covenant ship and husband of Katherine Waterson’s character, Daniels.
We can expect the trailer for Covenant to be released online before the year is out, and if it’s the same trailer that was shown to the press then we are in for some gut-busting Xenomorph action!
The official synopsis for Alien: Covenant is:
“The crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but it is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”
