The final Alien: Covenant trailer just dropped for this highly anticipated follow-up to 2012’s visually stunning Prometheus, and the prequel to the original Alien flick. And oh man, does it look glorious!
The spankin’ new trailer for Covenant follows a new crew into the world of Paradise, the habitat from which the Engineers derived. However, this “Paradise” is anything but as the trailer reveals the planet is inhabited with those damn clingy-as-your-psycho-ex facehuggers, and most importantly Danny McBride coming face to face with a terrifying new xenomorph!
The film stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby. The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, members (Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup) of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think to be an uncharted paradise. While there, they meet David (Michael Fassbender), the synthetic survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous when a hostile alien life-form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival.
