An Internet leak this evening forced Fox to officially release the second Alien: Covenant trailer about 12 hours before they wanted to. The reward for our impatience is a slightly earlier look at the return of an old friend and a brief introduction of a new one.
The first Alien: Covenant trailer brought back the Alien eggs we all know so well. There are even more eggs in this trailer, a facehugger or two outside of the eggs, and our old xenomorph friend wreaking havoc both inside and outside the Covenant ship.
Watch carefully and you’ll spot the new while neomorph Alien attacking some poor lady. If I had to guess we’ll see the neomorph earlier in the film with the more familiar xenomorph being akin to a final boss that must be defeated in order to escape the planet.
Alien: Covenant is directed by Ridley Scott and 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 with James Franco and Noomi Rapace.
Look for Alien: Covenant in theaters beginning May 19th.
The official Alien: Covenant synopsis:
“Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenan, 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.”
