We’ve got some exciting news for Alien fans this week as Fox has announced that Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant, will arrive in theatres even sooner than expected. The movie was originally set to be released on Aug. 4th, 2017, but now it will be terrifying audiences a full three months earlier on May 9th. Along with the new release date, they have also released the first official poster for the movie which makes it clear that this will be much more in line with previous Alien movies. It would seem that the crew of the Covenant will be facing creatures that strongly resemble the classic Xenomorph (this variation is rumoured to be called a “Neomorph”). Are you looking forward to Alien: Covenant? Check out the new poster after the jump.
