Alien: Covenant Trailer #2


In addition to the 5-minute prologue for Alien: Covenant that was released last week, it turns out we are also getting a new trailer as well. We now know that the crew of the Covenant are on a colonization mission (which is clearly in keeping with one of the themes of Prometheus) and we also know that things go very badly for them. It would appear that the crew is inadvertently following in the footsteps of Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and David (Michael Fassbender) but are now facing a much more familiar Xenomorph threat. Can this movie successfully bridge the gap between Prometheus and the rest of the Alien series or will it just be a rehash? Alien: Covenant hits theatres on May 18th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    I’m generally a big fan of the Alien films but judging by what we see in the
    trailer, it’s the same old same old.

    A group of people land on a planet, they find a ship – then the eggs.
    The face-hugger does its thing, alien burst out of one or more folks, then
    the remaining crew engage in a battle for survival.

    I really hope there’s more to it than that – Maybe even a twist :)

    Not sure what to make of this. Visually looks cool as per Ridley films but isn’t this more of the same?

    This franchise truly needs a refresher. Alien 1 & 2 are classics IMO, and really hard to live up too but seriously can someone develop a more revitalized approach where Prometheus failed?

    However having said all that I will see this movie with very low expectations unfortunately. But I still have hope that Ridley can come to his senses and deliver an Alien film we’ve all been waiting for since 1 & 2.

    That thumbnail is badass. I’m in.

  • Lori Cerny

    I HATE that James Franco is in this.

  • From what I can gather, there are some interesting ways this will continue the story of Prometheus. So I’m excited, it’s certainly not as exhilarating as that awesome Prometheus trailer was back then.

    The aliens look like cartoons.

    Completely sold. Love the suspense in this. Also this new Xenomorph looks vicious af.

  • Nick P.

    You look like a cartoon……Those aliens look fuckin AWESOME!

  • Nick P.

    That is the only thing giving me reservations right now…

  • Deven Science

    I agree. It looks like another Alien pick-off-people-one-at-a-time flick, as the later sequels became.

    And to add to that, Ridley is already prepping the sequel to this for 2018.

    That’s a bit partisan Nick!
