Alien: Covenant Trailer

"Where is it?!?" Holy crap! You have to see this! Fox has dropped the second official trailer for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, the latest movie in the Alien franchise. This spooky trailer is all about the big reveal of the new xenomorph (or the neomorph?) from the movie, which looks totally gnarly. Seriously! This looks so damn good, much better than the first trailer. The huge cast includes: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Uli Latukefu, Benjamin Rigby, and Amy Seimetz. Now this is what I'm talking about! Totally an exciting trailer, the perfect little glimpses of soon-to-be iconic moments. I hope we don't see anything more than this before the movie hits theaters, because what a great tease! Wow.

Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, from Fox's YouTube:

And here's the alternate red band version of the new trailer for Alien: Covenant, also from YouTube:

Alien: Covenant

You can still watch the first red band trailer for Alien: Covenant here, or the Opening Prologue for more.

The crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but it is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. Alien: Covenant is once again directed by veteran filmmaker Ridley Scott, of the original Alien from 1979 and Prometheus from 2012, as well as the films The Martian, Gladiator, Robin Hood, American Gangster, The Counselor, Matchstick Men, Blade Runner, Black Hawk Down, Kingdom of Heaven and Legend previously. The screenplay is by Michael Green and Jack Paglen, with a rewrite by John Logan. Fox will release Alien: Covenant in 3D in theaters starting May 19th, 2017 this summer. Looking better now?

  • This trailer is more compelling than the previous one. It's got me interested.

    Hold up! Are gonna see two Fassbenders?!?! Billington answer me!
    • TheOct8pus
      I hope Fassbender 2 meets Fassbender 1....and he tells him, "You should have quit while you were ahead?" Get it?? A head??
  • redtie
    I'm intrigued by the hooded figure. "Aliens" are the "Superman" of Scifi, and I'm not sure why anyone is watching these anymore. Also, I've come to the conclusion that all of the Alien eggs and whatever secrete human pheromones to get every human stand still and look at the Alien. That's the only way any human is standing around thinking "Oh... maybe... whatever this thing is and I can be lovers soon," instead of running away or using a weapon.
    • Maybe take it easy when you hit the pipe before posting 😉

        It's Fassbender , but as David or the character he's playing on the ship ? a little nod to his last role .... So this Alien merged with a spider ? or Tarantula ?
    • Payne by name
      I have to agree. Just like the stupidity of the guy in Prometheus who watches the organic alien lifeform morph into an instantly recognisable snake like creature and still thinks 'ah, that's cute'. For me, Prometheus was a car crash of lazy writing and unengaging characters acting in ever more idiotic ways.
  • Looks solid. Surprised how much McBride actually fits in. Rest of the cast is looking good too. Thumbs up so far.
  • whoafilms
    Counting the days to see James Franco and Danny McBride getting killed by an Alien, what more can I ask for!
    • for Seth Rogen to join them?
      • shiboleth
        Yeah, that completes the formula ...
  • ErrorSapiens
    upped the ante!
  • Soon. :-)
  • Dominic
    Why is it " neomorph " , Alex ?
    • Because Wake up Dominic.
      • Dominic
        I have no Idea what u mean
        • Ask the Wachowskis.
    • Someone corrected me on Twitter already. I think it's that idea that each new iteration of Alien creature is called something different, and the one in this is the "neomorph". I think...
    • Tester
      neomorph = make this shit up as you go (i.e. see Prometheus )
  • Loved Prometheus (sorry people, i really did) and this looks awesome too! Yup i am so in to this!
    • Tester
      Prometheus and Jackson's Kong.. two in a row.. your killing me Ari !!!
    • HerCar
      totally agree !!
    • TheOct8pus
      I liked Prometheus long as you don't question it too much, it's a fun movie
    • Cyberdine
      So did I.
  • TheOct8pus
    I just couldn't help but thinking, "Again??" while watching this....the beauty of the original Alien franchise was the Ripley knew what was happening. We didn't have to be reintroduced to the whole process again through the eyes of the Ridley is repeating himself... One positive thing though - it definitely looks like the Prometheus sequel
    • It seems a really common thing in new movies that the story is repeated for some reason over and over. Star Wars was a bit like that. Must be a reboot thing. Also a giant part of many populations have an attention span of about 2 minutes so maybe that's why the producers do it.
    • Because they are reaching a new audience who isn't familiar with the universe,
  • shiboleth
    As long as there's some hint of sequel to Prometheus, I'm interested. However, I have low expectations ...
    Damn cool!!!
    I profited 104,000 thousand dollars in last 12 months by doing an online job at my house a­­n­­d I was able to do it by w­orking part time f­o­r 3+ h /day.
