New Trailer for Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant

The new trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant has been released and it has plenty of action.

Directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender (as both David and Walter), Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, and, as the film’s official prologue revealed, James Franco also plays a key role.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. 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.
