Fox is going all out to say the Alien Covenant will not be like Prometheus, and it will indeed feature lots of the xenomorphs we come to know and love/hate. That continues with the new poster below, which manages to be rather creepy and also unusually artistic (for Hollywood at least).
Here’s the brief synopsis: ‘Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew 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.’
The movie will be in cinemas in May.
