Fox has released a terrifying trailer for Ridley Scott‘s newest chapter in the Alien franchise, Alien: Covenant, which features an appearance from the new Xenomorphs.
The new trailer takes us on a journey with the crew of the colony ship Covenant, as they touch down in a remote uncharted paradise. When they get there, however, they come across a large crop of wheat and discover something is not quite right.
“What are the odds of finding human vegetation this far from Earth?,” a crew member asks.
It is not long until the crew discover that the paradise they hoped for is actually a dark, dangerous word with a threat that is beyond the imagination.
‘The path to paradise begins in hell.’
The trailer gives us our first look at the new Neomorphs that will appear alongside the ‘classic’ version of the Xenomorph.
Take a look below:
Alien: Covenant is a sequel to Prometheus which was set in the 21st century, 30 years before the events in Scott’s 1979 movie Alien. Scott is directing the film from a script by Jack Paglen (Transcendence), Michael Green (Green Lantern), and John Logan (Spectre, The Last Samurai).
