For just over a week now, the official twitter page for the ‘Alien’ franchise has been tweeting out little teaser images alongside some some cryptic numbers. The last photo tweeted was this shot of Michael Fassbender as David, who we met in ‘Prometheus’.
This first red-band trailer gives us a quick look into the horror the team on the Covenant ship face when they discover a remote planet that holds dangers more horrifying then they could even imagine. I’ve been waiting for this trailer for over a month now, with rumours across the web it would make it’s way online before the year was out, and my god the wait was worth it!
The official synopsis for ‘Alien: Covenant’ is:
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. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
‘Alien: Covenant’ will burst into UK theatres 19th May 2017
