New Alien: Covenant poster unveiled

November 24th, 2016 by bash 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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
