Alien: Covenant | Ridley Scott’s Prequel Looks Tense

Alien: Covenant | Ridley Scott’s Prequel Looks Tense


On a landmark mission to a distant planet the crew of the colony ship Covenant stumble across paradise, a dangerous, scary and deadly paradise.

Ridley Scott returns to breath new life into his Alien saga with a sequel to his 2012 film Prometheus. Whilst Prometheus left many cinemagoers cold, Alien: Covenant certainly looks set to get pulses racing once more and puts the viewer back on firm ground.

Familiar visuals come in the form of alien pods and the aliens themselves, whilst the film presents a new, strong female lead in Katherine Waterston as Daniels.

Michael Fassbender reprises his role from Prometheus as the android David, whilst doubling up as a more human version, Walter. James Franco also features.

Alien: Covenant reaches U.K. and U.S. cinemas on the 19th of May.

About Alien: Covenant | Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discover 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.
