The new, very bloody, trailer was released quietly on Christmas eve after a week of stills from the set.
Note: this is a red band trailer – NSFW
It’s clear that the horror element of the original is back… a little on the slasher side this go around based on this first look.
Quick run down for those that don’t know about the project…
“Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”
Current cast includes Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterson, Amy Seimetz, Demián Bichir, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, and Noomi Rapace. Ridley Scott is directing, and the script is the work of Jack Paglen, John Logan, and Michael Green.
