Alien: Covenant TV Spots

"All of this, to start our new life." Yes! Only one month to go. 20th Century Fox has released three new TV spots for Ridley Scott's return to the Alien universe (following Prometheus), with Alien: Covenant. These spots are titled "Run", "Pray", and "Hide", which is the perfect way to tease this movie - the same taglines they've used on the teaser posters as well. The huge ensemble cast of this sci-fi thriller 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. These are short, but sweet TV spots, with just the right amount of footage and scares and thrills. The marketing for this movie has been pitch perfect so far, I just hope the movie lives up to the hype.

Here's the new "Run" TV spot from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, found on Fox's YouTube:

Here's the new "Pray" TV spot from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, found on Fox's YouTube:

Here's the new "Hide" TV spot from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, found on Fox's YouTube:

And here's one more "Take Me Home Tonight" TV spot from Alien: Covenant, also on YouTube:

Alien: Covenant

You can still watch the first red band trailer for Alien: Covenant here, as well as second official trailer here.

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. Who's ready for this?

Looks awesome

BigJohnson on Apr 3, 2017


I'm ready. Sir Ridley + Sci-Fi = a must watch for me.

tarek on Apr 3, 2017


I can understand that. But the performance of Noomi Rapace makes everything looks secondary. Is Prometheus a perfect movie? Of course not. Can we compare it to the masterpiece Alien? No way. But he is great in the way it tried to explore the mythology from a fresh and compelling perspective.

tarek on Apr 3, 2017


You would be surprised by the huge fan base Kingdom of Heaven has harvested. I have the director's cut edition on Blu-ray. I suggest you to watch it if you have the opportunity, because lot of footage was left on the floor for the theatrical release. And the making of are simply delicious as always with Sir Ridley's Blu-ray.

tarek on Apr 4, 2017


Kingdom of Heaven is one of my favourite films, very much underrated.

Steven Lewis on Apr 4, 2017


Youtube is your friend. I watch lot of making of of movies I didn't purchase on Blu-ray.

tarek on Apr 5, 2017


true, the mythology was spot on!

ari smulders on Apr 4, 2017


Alas Prometheus haters sent a strong message to the producers. Thus back to the same old thing: Claustrophobic paint by numbers horror movie, to please the crowd.

tarek on Apr 4, 2017


OK lets beat the dead horse one last time. Haters? The movie was IMO a narrative failure. Once the story fell apart with some terrible casting choices, it just didn't work. And not because most people wanted more ALIEN as in horror. You know, when you have a Geologist who spends two years in cryo sleep say that hes in only for the money and have drunk archaeologist hanging around with a bottle of Jack after not finding his engineers alive, you know the narrative went out the window. Top that with some terrible acting and shitty subplot w/ Weyland not even the awesome visuals could save it.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Apr 4, 2017


;D We all are dead horse beaters before the Lord. You may be right on many points, even though they didn't bother me that much. And I'm not an easy man to please. But you know how Studios think: Deadpool worked great, let's make every damn movie R-Rated. This is why they are getting back to the old formula. So I'm afraid you share a part of the responsibility Sascha...;D Kidding.

watch Tom hardy in Taboo, it's fantastic. By the way :great tv show...

ari smulders on Apr 4, 2017


Don't thank me bo, thank Tom hardy. Taboo is a marvel of a tv show like West world and true detective season one. It's so detailed and gorgeous, and every single dialog is perfectly timed.

ari smulders on Apr 5, 2017


Taboo looks like a must see series. Production design and cast is top notch. As for Westworld, we share the same opinion on this dud. ;D PS: I wasn't thrilled by True Detective either. I really tried to like it. Hannibal is another series highly rated that I forced myself to like, but failed miserably. ;D

tarek on Apr 6, 2017


Thanks for confirming that Taboo is a great show. I didn't watch it yet indeed, but from the trailer, I spotted its intrinsic quality and potential greatness. There's also a show I want to draw your attention on it: The Last Kingdom. If you like Viking and middle ages movies but wasn't satisfied by the so-so series Vikings, this movie will be a good deal. History buffs like shiboleth will probably have their say on the accuracy of some historical events used as a narrative, but I myself find the whole experience very satisfying. It's like watching the offspring of Game of Thrones with a smaller scale.

tarek on Apr 6, 2017


Fair enough ;D If you liked Vikings, then the Last Kingdom will blow you away. I love the lead actor and his natural acting.

Oh! And before I forget, you can use Netflix for free for 1 month to see if it suits you. You can take advantage of this free month to watch dozens of great movies or series and cancel your subscription 24h before the end of the month. I did it twice before I decided to keep my subscription. No fishy tricks or bad surprises.

tarek on Apr 6, 2017


I can understand that. The good deal will netflix is you can stop your subscription any time you want. You can subscribe for 1 month, stop the subscription and resume it few months later. As for the setting, it's easy as a smile. On your computer go on netflix dot com, clic on free month trial. You create an account. ( username and password) and you are ready to go. Just launch the netflix from your tv and login with your username and password and that's it. Enjoy dazillion of series and movies.

tarek on Apr 6, 2017


Tom Hardy is the only guy who can make you watch a movie featuring a man driving a car and talking to his cellphone for 90mn or so.

tarek on Apr 5, 2017


On what cable network are you? Have you tried Netflix or you're anti- streaming ? what do you think of the movie Bronson? I couldn't enjoy it quite frankly. too weird for my taste.

tarek on Apr 5, 2017


You don't need to hook your tv to any computer. Just create an account on their website and then launch the application from your tv and enter your username and password to connect. (just once). That's all folks. ;D Many great series on Netflix. ( British and Danish) and documentaries. It's really really worth it. I'm watching now the documentary “Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War " telling the stories of five great directors ( Capra, Huston, Ford, Wyler and Stevens) and their contribution during the WWII.

tarek on Apr 5, 2017


Great! Thank you Sir Scott.

Бабак on Apr 3, 2017


The more I see, the worse it gets. I'll still be handing my money over though. Sigh. At least the hype and marketing is fun to obsess over.

eurogibbon on Apr 3, 2017


ALIEN version still probably EAT PRAY LIVE...

DAVIDPD on Apr 3, 2017


Mosdef would have preferred if they held off showing the Alien until the actual movie was released, but this still looks great.

DAVIDPD on Apr 3, 2017


I gotta be honest...there's a LOT of imagery we've seen before here...and...I'm kind of disappointed. Even to the point of having a "Ripley" character! I'm gonna call this now as, "Okay, but not as good as the original(s)." Plus, there's no mystery here, they're showing EVERYTHING in the trailers. I feel as if I've already seen the movie....

RAW_D on Apr 3, 2017


But the cinematography is gorgeous. ;D

tarek on Apr 3, 2017


.. and not a single new idea. Just more of the same. And I mean: THE SAME...

Butchy Butch on Apr 4, 2017


Too true.

TAH on Apr 4, 2017


The first trailer looked amazing. I'm so put off though now by the amount of footage that's been released that this film will be terrible. I'm a huge Aliens fan but I don't rate Prometheus highly and this looks like a classic 'we've made a shit film, offload it on trailers' affair.

TAH on Apr 4, 2017


Sounds good...especially the 'be patient' part...lol...I'll give it some thought. Just googled a movie list for Netflix as my daughter has told me it might not be worth it for me as she's pretty sure I've seen all the movies they offer. She was right...lol...I also went next door to the young guy living there who has his own business setting up home theaters for people. He set up my 55" Flat Panel (Smart TV) Samsung. He came over and started doing the whole deal...said he had to update the TV...I told him not to do anything as all my settings were exact and could not be messed with...the contrast...color, etc. He said the updating would probably reset the TV to it factory default and I've have to do it all again...I declined as it's perfect now...lol...I reckon I'm just an old dog you can't teach new tricks to...lol...He said to give some thought and he'd set it up for me whenever...so I'll give it some thought, but looking at that list there's not really anything there for me to see and nothing that's not offered on all my cable movie channels. So....still...there were maybe a half dozen films I could watch on Netflix..some I'd seen already...the free month sounds good, but eventually I'd have to pay up so for me...right now...settings, etc. it ain't worth it. But hey, thanks tarek...I might get a burr up my butt and spontaneously just do it...these days I do nothing planned anyway and it's all day to day, moment to moment, spontaneous living for me...and I like that very much...lol...take care and thanks for taking the trouble, man. We'll see what develops. As for now I might pay the pay OnDemand and watch Scorsese's Silence tonight or tomorrow. I hate to pay for movies and not like them. I pay enough for my monthly every movie channel as it is...later gator...

Bo on Apr 6, 2017


I understand Bo. You must do what you feel is right ( with Sir Alec Guinness voice). Another quote that will fly over your head. ;D

tarek on Apr 6, 2017


;D Oh! One last thing on Netflix I forgot to tell you: you need to have an unlimited high speed internet service. Or else the internet bill will go nuclear. Take care.

tarek on Apr 7, 2017


Thanks for the heads up. I will probably watch it this next week. I love period and historical movies. ;D I'll give you a feedback.

tarek on Apr 7, 2017


Nothing compromising in your post. You should have edited it instead of deleting it.
