The official trailer for Alien Covenant has been released a day early and it is enticing.
Explorers on the colony ship Covenant are all couples and excited to land on what they think is an undiscovered tropical planet. There is quickly trouble in paradise when it becomes evident that they are actually in a dark universe with no animals but a flu bug, xenopmorphs, and ‘synthetic’ David, an evil survivor of the prior expedition played by Michael Fassbender.
The trailer shows off these plot elements and we get to see creepy critters. It feels like a solid sequel to both the original Alien franchise and Prometheus. WATCH IT:
The film stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demien Bichir and Danny McBride, directed by Ridley Scott and out May 19, 2017.
Oh and James Franco is in it. He plays some sort of Alien bug.
