“My mantra has always been to scare the living s— out of you.” Those were Ridley Scott’s final words before he unleashed three scenes from Alien: Covenant to a packed theater at SXSW last night. Scott was joined by stars Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender and Danny McBride at a special screening of his original Alien, preceded by a sneak peek at footage from Covenant. You’re warned of potential spoilers from here on out, but it’s doubtful that Scott, who seems very confident about his “quite clever” prequel, would allow us to see footage that gave away too much.

With every new studio release, Ridley Scott likes to remind us all of his background in advertising. The director behind the canonized “Nineteen Eighty-Four” Macintosh commercial tends to mount an inventive promotional campaign for each of his motion picture efforts — both Prometheus and The Martian showed off their elaborate, space-ready production design through early faux-featurettes, and Scott has pulled the same move today. This morning saw the release of a “prologue” video titled “The Last Supper” in relation to the upcoming sequel Alien: Covenant, and while it gives viewers a chance to familiarize themselves with the crew of a major interstellar colonization effort, it’s also a chilling bait-and-switch unto itself.

We haven’t seen much from Alien: Covenant since the red band trailer dropped late last year and a few photos here and there. But today brings a brand new photo of the colony ship’s crew (and a guest cameo), which finds everyone smiley and free of danger.

John Carpenter shocked us all when he revealed last week that not only is the new Halloween movie happening, it already has a director, a screenwriter, and a release date. The duo in charge of the project are comedy powerhouses David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, who are responsible for Vice Principals and Eastbound & Down, so at first it seems a little odd for them to take on a classic slasher franchise. But McBride revealed that they’ve established the movie’s place in the series and are definitely planning on some old-school horror.

Had enough of those never-ending stills yet? Good news — the Alien: Covenant trailer is here, and it’s equal parts stunning and downright horrifying. Watch as a sinister particle drifts into an android’s ear, cringe as a man leans over a slowly hatching alien egg, marvel at the sweeping, beautiful landscapes of a planet we all know is full of creatures that want to kill us! Oh, and I am never, ever taking a shower again.

After the end of Eastbound & Down, many were surprised to see Danny McBride jumping back into HBO comedy so swiftly with Vice Principals. Like Eastbound, however, the commitment may not be so rigid, as McBride says Vice Principals is firmly set to end at the close of its two-season order.

The concept of Danny McBride squaring off against Walton Goggins had HBO’s Vice Principals a lock from the start, though one had to wonder what else the series had to offer beyond a cartoon rivalry. See for yourself in the first full trailer and a new featurette, as the two leads find an enemy more loathsome than each other.
