“Alien Covenant”,Run, pray and hide. That suggests three of the four advances of "Alien: Covenant" that convince us that space adventure by unknown planets can become a nightmare. Ridley Scott's new film integrates the rich universe of the franchise that has been delivering great stories since 1979.
The brief advances made by 20th Century Fox predispose fans from the title to prepare for the worst. In "Run" we see the joy of the crew to be part of the mission, happiness that is exhausted very soon when they discover who inhabit the place. In "Pray", the hopes are lost and in "Hide" there is no opportunity to fight.
The film - a sequel to "Prometheus" - will show that the crew of the Covenant ship, bound for a remote planet on the other side of the galaxy, discovers a supposedly unknown paradise. However, it is a dark and dangerous world. When they encounter a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a horrific flight.
The aforementioned Scott goes back behind the scenes for the tape written by Dante Harper and John Logan. Under his orders are Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Noomi Rapace, Danny McBride, Guy Pearce, Demián Bichir, Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Jussie Smollett, Goran D. Kleut and, among others, Amy Seimetz.
If you are a fan of the saga Alien you will probably also love the particular and horrifying biology of xenomorphs. In that case we have good news for you. 20Th Century Fox has released three teaser-trailers of Alien: Covenant, and they show an entirely new alien.
#3 A great release date: April 14, 2017
The creature is barely visible for a second when it attacks one of the Covenant crew members, but we're going to hang up the relevant spoiler warning for those who do not want to know anything about the film until the opening day. In addition to the hint of this new monster (in the third video), the clips show some interesting details about the plot. They are official videos of 20Th Century Fox, so they should not gut the story too much, but it's not the first time that a producer reveals too much about the script. Give the play button under your own responsibility.
In the hand of alienanthology, the video shows a hologram of the character who first appeared on Prometheus. The scene takes place on the Juggernaut, where the scientist and the droid David (Michael Fassbender) were last seen in the previous installment.
But this was not the only novelty. A new poster starring Katherine Waterston - via Comic Book - has just come to light. In the, Daniels, personage that interprets the actress, the faces is seen with one of the terrible xenomorphs that populate the planet. An image that reminded Alien fans of the famous scene with Lieutenant Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver.
Alien: Covenant will follow an expedition with the mission of colonizing an unknown planet that, at first glance, looks like paradise. But the protagonists will soon discover that they are not alone there, and their mission will eventually become a struggle for their survival in a hostile and dangerous environment.
The cast is completed by names like Demian Bichir (The Odds Eight), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Danny McBride (Call and Hernandez) and Callie Hernandez (La La Land), among others. Discover more about this new adventure with the trailer that you will find on these lines.
