Watch the First Gorgeous, Creepy ‘Alien: Covenant’ Red Band Trailer
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.
Alien: Covenant introduces us to a whole new crew of probably-doomed spacemen who stumble upon yet another xenomorph-infested world and must use every wit they have in order to escape. Is it just me, or do the aliens seem to get even more horrifying by the movie? One thing’s for sure: it’s going to be a blast to see the return of Ridley Scott to the Alien franchise, no matter how many jump-scares and moments of “DON’T TOUCH IT WHY ARE YOU TOUCHING IT” we have to suffer through.
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.
Alien: Covenant is directed by Ridley Scott, stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, Demian Bichir, Amy Siemetz, and James Franco, and hits theaters May 19, 2017.
