20th Century Fox has released the new Alien: Covenant trailer.
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.
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.
Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender (Assassin’s Creed, X-Men: Apocalypse), Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Billy Crudup (Watchmen, Jackie), Danny McBride (Vice Principals, Eastbound and Down), Demián Bichir (The Heat, The Hateful Eight), Carmen Ejogo (Selma, The Purge: Anarchy), Amy Seimetz (Upstream Color), Jussie Smollett (Empire), Callie Hernandez (La La Land), Nathaniel Dean (Somersault), Alexander England (Gods of Egypt), Benjamin Rigby (Lion), and James Franco (127 Hours).
