‘Alien: Covenant’ Promotional Video Will Focus On Michael Fassbender’s Walter

Back when the viral marketing campaign for Prometheus was underway, Twentieth Century Fox released a short video showcasing how Michael Fassbender’s android character, David, functioned in a short that stylistically parodied Apple commercials. Now, it looks as though another viral video explaining the inner workings of a synthetic person is set to be released to promote Alien: Covenant – this time focusing on Fassbender’s other android character, Walter.

AMD is partnering with Fox to produce a new short displaying how synthetics have changed in the years that have passed between Prometheus and Alien: Covenant. Both of Fassbender’s android characters – David and Walter – will be appearing in the movie, though Walter is the focus of this video since he is the newer of the two models. The short will arrive this Friday.

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 arrives on May 19, 2017. In addition to Michael Fassbender, the movie’s cast includes Noomi Rapace, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Guy Pearce, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, and James Franco.

Previous1 of 6

____53a1c8188d461The Alien Franchise has become a massive success ever since the first film was released back in 1979. A small but intimate film that changed horror and sci-fi cinema. The Alien known as the Xenomorph has become a part of the cultural zeitgeist with as much popularity as the greatest horror and sci-fi characters. The Xenomorphs in these films are almost more popular than the films themselves so much so that they have been a part of crossovers with the Predator series as well. With the release of the trailer to Alien: Covenant it is the perfect time to look back at this franchise and see which ones remain the best out of all of them.

This list will not include the Alien Vs. Predator films seeing as they are their own separate crossover series. So without further ado here is are the Alien Films Ranked From Worst To Best!
