New Alien: Covenant poster unveiled

November 24th, 2016 by Marc Comments





20th Century Fox has just unveiled the first poster for Alien: Covenant.

The film, by director Ridley Scott and his follow-up to Prometheus, no doubt leans heavily on H.R. Giger’s original Alien design, and ties the new film to the original films more so than Scott’s first prequel film.

The poster also boasts a new release date of May 2017 which is different to the original announcement of August the same year.

Michael Fassbender is the only returning cast member from Prometheus to have a substantial role in Alien: Covenant, as he is joined by a new cast that includes Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, and Callie Hernandez.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
