Surprise! Alien: Covenant has a new release date… again, so mark your calendar folks. The film was originally set to hit theaters next October but was then moved up to August. Now, 20th Century Fox has unveiled the chilling first poster for the highly anticipated movie, which will now arrive in theaters on May 19, 2017.
Directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant stars Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Noomi Rapace, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Billy Crudup and Amy Seimetz. Plot details are scarce at the moment, but expect more to be revealed over the next few months.
You can check out the poster below.
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
