Fox is beginning to market and show clips from Alien: Covenant. One of my most beloved franchises, I have high hopes that Ridley Scott can pull of something better than what was the visually stunning but story/script lacking Prometheus.
Other details included James Franco playing a cameo role, allegedly very brief in the first quarter of the film. If that’s a spoiler to you, you’re a jackass.
There are also some leaked on set photos that I will not host , just in case..
Supposedly we will see female Engineers, multiple Xenomorph creations that David may be responsible for, and the home planet of the Engineers.
The trailer will drop within the next 2-3 weeks and perhaps playing along before the Assassin’s Creed film.
Unfortunately for the new teaser that was screened all we have are some reaction tweets. Hope these people aren’t hand selected to post positive praise regardless of the content. You know you can cut any film to look like another film than it ends up being. That’s the whole magic of editing. These guys only saw about 15 minutes of footage. You could cut up Prometheus to look like a romantic comedy if you wanted.

Long clip from Alien: Covenant just played. Extremely, extremely violent. Action packed. Alien fans will love it. Then a teaser trailer.
