20th Century Fox sent us the trailer for Ridley Scott's upcoming "Alien: Covenant." I have to tell you that I'm extremely cautiously optimistic after being so disappointed in "Prometheus." After trying to steer away from "Prometheus" being tied to "Alien," here we have the director right back where he started with the franchise. You can check out the trailer after the jump. We also posted the "Alien: Covenant" short film, "Prelude: Last Supper," which came out last week.
Director: Ridley Scott
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby
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.
The "Prologue: Last Supper" short introduces the crew of the mission. Set aboard the Covenant, a colonization ship on its way to a remote planet to form a new human settlement, the main crew (all couples) and their android, Walter, enjoy one last meal together before cryosleep.
Conceived by Ridley Scott and 3AM, directed by Luke Scott, and produced by RSA Films.
